Jeaniene Frost serves up perfection with her latest Night Prince novel, Twice Tempted. The wait was long for this novel but it was so worth it. From page one I knew this was going to be a great read! I became immersed immediately with Leila and Vlad’s latest predicament. Leila’s feelings are very human and Vlad’s reaction is one typical of a seasoned vampire.
Lust, danger and possessive alpha males make Twice Tempted a first-rate paranormal novel! It’s impossible to miss the immense passion between Leila and Vlad. When these two are alone in a room or alone in each other’s mind the heat between them sparks. I really enjoyed the direction this book took by confronting Vlad’s feelings and forcing Leila to face what she really wanted. The mystery surrounding the latest danger is a good one and it adds the right amount of suspense to the novel. The action sequences were amazing and it was fantastic to get to see Leila embrace her powers.
I get so excited when I get a Frost book in the mail because I know that the writing is going to be outstanding and that her story will take me on a new adventure. Twice Tempted does that and more. Get ready for shock and awe as you flip the pages of the phenomenal Twice Tempted.
Twice Tempted is a smash hit, that’s why I’m Joyfully Recommending it!!
