novel in New York Times bestselling author Jeaniene Frost’s Night Prince
series finds Vlad and his newly turned bride, Leila, at odds with each
other—and vulnerable to the one vampire powerful enough to end the Dark
Prince’s reign . . .
Play with fire, pay the price
years on the carnie circuit were certainly an education. What she
didn’t learn: how to be a vampire, or how to be married to the most
famous vampire of them all. Adjusting to both has Leila teetering on a
knife edge between passion and peril, and now the real danger is about
to begin . . .
Vlad must battle with a centuries-old enemy whose
reach stretches across continents and whose strength equals his own. It
isn’t like Vlad to feel fear, but he does . . . for Leila, because his
enemy knows she is Vlad’s greatest weakness. As friend and foe alike
align against him—and his overprotectiveness drives Leila away—Vlad’s
love for his new bride could be the very thing that dooms them both . . .
WOW!! I looooooved this book!!! Vlad and Leila are back and determined
to find Szilagyi no matter what it takes! Well….except Vlad would rather have
Leila safely locked away, while he deals with this deadly adversary. However,
Leila is very strong willed and is not easily persuaded. She’s determined to
help her husband with his enemy and it’s not long before Leila lands into the

lose you, it would finish me.”
Laila really has come into her own; her electrical power are stronger than
ever, she has become a strong heroine although she still second guesses herself
a bit too much. She is young in human years and new to her vampire life (love
when Marty calls her “Baby Vamp”). She still can’t believe Vlad actually
loves her, and the storyline progresses, so does Leila’s
inner strength and she overcomes most of her misgivings when it comes to Vlad.
“Vlad loved the same way that he lived–untamable, dangerous, and full throttle.”
around her crazy, especially the vampires. I absolutely looooove her character,
I’m anxious to see if she hooks up with a vampire….and maybe becomes one
herself?? Leila’s father is still
distant and it’s really, really pissing
Vlad off!! We’ll just have to see if he gets through to him.
unnerved by me, so you wish I’d leave the two of you alone to talk?” Vlad
snorted. “Your personal discomfort means nothing to me, Hugh … wait,
that’s not true. I enjoy it.”
