Sheep Book Review: Twice Tempted by Jeaniene Frost

Twice Tempted by Jeaniene Frost is the second novel in her PNR series Night Prince. After the mixed emotions of book 1, Once Burned, I've found myself back in the game and loving every minute of Vlad and all his impaling tendencies!

Dating the Prince of Darkness has its challenges . . . 

Leila's psychic abilities have been failing her, and now she isn't sure what the future holds. If that weren't enough, her lover Vlad has been acting distant. Though Leila is a mere mortal, she's also a modern woman who refuses to accept the cold shoulder treatment forever--especially from the darkly handsome vampire who still won't admit that he loves her . . . 

Like choosing between eternal love and a loveless eternity . . .

Soon circumstances send Leila back to the carnival circuit, where tragedy strikes. And when she finds herself in the crosshairs of a killer who may be closer than she realizes, Leila must decide who to trust-- the fiery vampire who arouses her passions like no other or the tortured knight who longs to be more than a friend? With danger stalking her every step of the way, all it takes is one wrong move to damn her for eternity . . .

As the plot says "Dating the Prince of Darkness has its challenges . . ." and that my dear friends is no lie! We gals have a tendency to look past all the darkness within our loved ones. Find the good and hang on tight. But Vlad makes it abundantly clear, this is me. I AM the darkness and if you're looking for that white knight, keep truckin sister! He's in your face with alpha high handedness and if you think to tame the beast, think again. He is who he is, and you either love the whole package or none at all. This, I love about the man. He will not shy away from what he is, a true and utter acceptance and willingness to be anyway he wants is refreshing. He's a dark dude and he likes it. 

In the first edition to this saga we had Leila Dalton, (Um, love her last name btw!) the freak show performing woman who's trying to make her way in life. Failing at times, but doing the best she can. I hated, with every undead bone in my body, that this young woman thought she could match up with Vlad. Certainly not the first time around she couldn't. This girl needed to grow up, get some balls and play with the big dogs. In book 2, she has and she does. Leila is winning me over, slow though it may be I am getting on board with her changes and growth as a woman. 

With evil folks out to kill her, yet again, and Vlad coming to terms with matters of the heart, we had everything that could be wanted emotionally in this story. I'm used to a bit more action in the tales from Frost and while that area lacked a bit, we do get some positive story flow that will lead us into the next edition. 

Cat and Bones make an appearance but it's never to overshadow the main characters of this story. It's always nice when characters from previous books pop in and out. 

From beginning to end I was overall pleased with this one, if you've yet to check Frost out now is the time! Heads will roll and bodies are sure to hit the floor, but it's all in good vampy fun. Combine all this with Dracula himself and you've got one enjoyable story!

Getting 4 'I brought my own pole' Sheep 


  1. I recently picked up Once Burned and it sounds like this series will be great fun and I am certainly glad that Leila gets her balls ;=D

  2. I will definitely be picking this up, I love her books.
