From the Back Cover

She's a mortal cursed with dark power...

After a tragic accident scarred her body and destroyed her dreams, Leila never imagined that the worst was still to come: a terrifying ability to channel electricity and to see 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, threatening to consume them. It will take everything they have to stop an enemy intent on bringing them down in flames.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Leila is a human who hasn't been able to lead a normal life due to a horrific accident with a downed power line when she was thirteen. It left her badly scarred, but also gave her some unusual abilities. When she touches objects, she is able to get impressions about others who have held them before her. This is along with a couple of other unique talents that may or may not be considered a blessing. Knowing such abilities could bring trouble her way, she has managed to limit her contact with others so as to not draw the wrong kind of attention. Even she could only keep up her cover for so long, though. One fateful slip-up and she reveals herself in a very public way.

This draws the attention of a group of vampires who want to use her abilities for their own evil purposes. They want Leila to track down the world's most notorious vampire, Vlad Tepesh, also known (to his annoyance) as Dracula. She quickly realizes how dangerous helping his enemies will be for her and concocts her own plan. Get on his good side so he might consider not killing her and letting her get back to her semi-normal life. Things don't go the way she expects, though, as the plot against Vlad goes much higher than the lackeys that kidnapped her. Leila has no choice but to stick around and help him until the danger is over. Seems logical enough, but what she doesn't count on is her attraction to the dangerous and cold man. Keeping her heart intact may be the most difficult part of all.

Vlad's meeting with Leila is certainly one where the sparks fly, literally. He is a vampire who can control and manipulate fire. She is a human woman with an electric charge so strong most people will die if they touch her. It would almost seem they were made for each other.

Jeaniene Frost is back. Not that she went anywhere, really. But the last couple of Cat & Bones books didn't quite knock it out of the park for me. This book most assuredly did.

Once Burned is the long awaited Night Huntress spinoff, featuring Vlad. Right off the bat, I have to tell you that he makes this book sing. Not every cocky hero is a winner. In fact, most of them are downright off-putting for me. But Vlad finds just the right balance of swagger and depth. He is arrogant, but his walk matches his talk. And perhaps most importantly, he is never a jerk to his heroine. It isn't love at first sight. He doesn't write her sonnets or pick her flowers, but I could see respect there. I could believe it when I watched her fall in love with him.

Leila is human, but she isn't normal. An accident with electricity in her childhood left her with serious side effects. Now, she can not touch others without discharging power. She also carries the gift of psychometry. She can touch a person or a thing and see past, present, and future events tied to it. And whenever she touches someone for the first time, she always sees their darkest moment.

As the story begins, Leila accidentally gets a vision of a murder about to take place. She manages to prevent it, but in the process, she ends up calling some unwanted attention to herself. A group of vampires kidnaps her, planning to use her gifts to track down Vlad for his enemy. What they never expect is for her to reach out to him psychically instead. She makes a deal with Vlad to turn over her kidnappers in exchange for a rescue. And it works! But Vlad isn't quite willing to let her go after that.

First and foremost, this is my first J.Frost novel. I picked it up while browsing for a "decent" horror/romance novel. The sample I got on my kindle made the novel sound way more interesting and well-thought out than it truly is. Honestly, I regret purchasing this novel.

While the female antagonist initially started out as strong-willed, intelligent and sassy she eventually, like many female characters in these types of novels do, succumbed to overly-emotional and irrational behavior. It's as though the author started out writing one fierce female character only to accidentally end with an entirely different character altogether; both characters are named "Leila" but pre-page-100-Leila was 100x more interesting than ending-Leila. It was quite disappointing. As for the male antagonist, he's pretty much like every other vampire riding the high on this vampire-mania that's gripping the nation. "Arrogant, deadly, dangerous, sexy," seems to be the four requirements for being so irresistible, the ladies swoon when you show up. While I was forgiving of his singularly harsh nature since the premise of the novel is that he is THE Vlad "the Impaler" Tepesh, towards the end when his character didn't flesh out, it got not only tiring but annoying. You're hot (literally). OK. I get it. Must you beat me over the head with the concept?

Then there is that "ending." Does no one know how cliffhangers work anymore? What sort of ending was that? A non-ending I would say. I understand the author wants to create suspense for the sequel but I don't think that's how it's done--or at least I didn't enjoy reading it done that way. One star for the semi-impressive heroine (even though she fizzled out at the end). Another star for the mildly amusing plot.

I would not recommend this book.
