Once Burned (Night Prince #1) by Jeaniene Frost

This is the First book in the series featuring Vlad.

The heroine of the series is Leila, a human girl with an electricity problem. She was electrocuted 12 years ago. She survived, but when her mother tried to do CPR, the current killed her mother.  She felt guilty about her death and left her father and sister. She changed her name to Frankie and joined the Gibsonton carnies. She has befriended a Vampire named Marty, who thinks of her as a daughter.

Then, Leila is kidnapped by a trio of vampires who have been hired by one of Vlad's enemies. While touching objects that Vlad had touched before she is able to make a connection with him. She asked him for help and he flies to the rescue, literally.
The attraction they feel for each other builds up.  And he becomes very possessive of her, specially when there are multiple attempts against her life. But, can Vlad love again?? Can they leave their guilt behind?

Most of the UF/Paranormal readers know who Jeaniene Frost is. We love her Bones and Cat Books.(Those are part of the Night Huntress Series in case you live in the moon).
We met Vlad a few books back and we begged Mrs Frost to write about him. She didn't disappoint her readers. 
I was so excited about this book coming out. I actually preordered it from amazon for my Kindle fire and I also bought the book. (In hope of meeting JF in RT next year where she can sign my book!). 

Read the book in an afternoon. JF's writing is always smooth and full of action. Love her characters. 
There is a Cat and Bones cameo. I love how Bones and Vlad have a hate/tolerance relationship. 
I won't give this book a 5 Fang (which hurts me) because I would have liked to see Vlad's POV. Also, because the ending was too sudden. (or maybe I just wanted more Vlad).

4/5 Fangs
