Teaser Tuesday: Once Burned (Night Prince #1) by Jeaniene Frost

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Read on for this weeks teasers...

I'm reading two books again this week. One is an ARC for Angel of Darkness by Cynthia Eden and the other is Once Burned, book one of Jeaniene Frost's Night Prince trilogy. The latter is a re-read as my friend is reading for the first time and because I love me some Vlad I'm reading it with her. I highly recommend this series. I love Vlad and Leila's relationship. He's so frustratingly arrogant and it's great to see Leila breaking him down and revealing his--slightly--softer side. I'm a huge Jeaniene Frost fan so to me she can do no wrong. I especially love her Night Huntress and Night Huntress World books.

Once Burned (Night Prince #1) by Jeaniene Frost

She's a mortal with dark powers...

After a tragic accident scarred her body and destroyed her dreams, Leila never imagined that the worst was still to come: terrifying powers that let her channel electricity and learn a person's darkest secrets through a single touch. Leila is doomed to a life of solitude...until creatures of the night kidnap her, forcing her to reach out with a telepathic distress call to the world's most infamous vampire...

He's the Prince of Night...

Vlad Tepesh inspired the greatest vampire legend of all—but whatever you do, don't call him Dracula. Vlad's ability to control fire makes him one of the most feared vampires in existence, but his enemies have found a new weapon against him—a beautiful mortal with powers to match his own. When Vlad and Leila meet, however, passion ignites between them, threatening to consume them both. It will take everything that they are to stop an enemy intent on bringing them do wn in flames.

Here are my teaser sentences:

'“You’re still afraid of me,” he stated. “Good.”
“You get off on people being afraid of you?” Was he some sort of insecure undead killer? Great, then I could look forward to him scaring the shit out of me on a regular basis just to make himself feel better.'
- pg 50 of 267

'The sly smile that curled Vlad’s lips said he’d overheard my thoughts—and liked them. Then he pulled me close, one hand twining through my hair while the other stroked my back.
“Good morning,” he murmured before his lips closed over mine.
I’d wondered if he would be reserved with me in front of his people. Obviously not. By the time he lifted his head, my pulse had tripled and my body felt flushed.'
- pg 137 of 267

I love Jeaniene's book trailers so here is the one for Once Burned...Enjoy!
