Publisher's Summary

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, passion ignites, threatening to consume them. It will take everything they have to stop an enemy intent on bringing them down in flames.

Explosive acrions

Once burned a night prince novel is a thrilling edge of your sit suspense from beginning to end. Vlad and Leila's story is by far my favourite of the Night huntress series, it has none stop actions, sexy hot undead albeit arrogant hero and a scarred heroine literally and metaphorically who discharged electric current in her right hand and you have a recipe for a great book, thrown in one of the best narrator in audible books Tavia Gilber and you have an amazing story. Tavia you are magnificent thank you.

Awesome start. Live Vlad. Racial is such an awesome narrator. Can't wait to read the rest of this series. Well done Jeaniene Frost. Never disappoint.

really good story

Would you consider the audio edition of Once Burned to be better than the print version?

I would as the performance is excellent and enhances the story and strengthens the characters.

Any additional comments?

As I have read the Huntress series and Vlad was a strong support character in those books - this book develops his story line. The book is free standing and is not affected if you have not read the Huntress series. LOVED this book will read it again without a doubt.

Another great book form Jeanine Frost

What made the experience of listening to Once Burned the most enjoyable?

I have been a fan of Jeaniene Frost’s Night Huntress World books for years and Once Burned did not disappoint.
It is only recently that I have begun to listen to audiobooks, as I do not have the time to read books as much as I used to or want to.
Not only does the story draw you into the world Jeaniene has created, but Tavia Gilbert does an excellent job as a narrator with her natural flow, pleasant voice, her ability to express specific feelings in a single sentence as well as using different voices and accents for each character. There are a few accents/voices I think could use a little improving, but overall I love Tavia Gilbert's work.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Definitely, I have read the book in one sitting and have listened to the audiobook quite a few times so far.

my all time favorite

I have read and reread this entire series, and it never gets old. The combination of darkness and humour has me spellbound, and the narrative is mostly brilliant. If I have one criticism then its the voice of Lilia after a while it gets a little irritating. That said it is a small irritation, and doesn't detract from my enjoyment of the book.
Love, love, love it.

A Good Addition for fans of Night Huntress Series

I came to this book having enjoyed the Night Huntress Series, but getting a little bored of it after three installments. Those who have listened to the previous series will be prepared for the narrator's very questionable grasp of accents. If you can get passed this it's a nice addition to the Night Huntress universe and it's nice to see Vlad find some happiness. These books are fairly well rounded despite being light reads and thoroughly enjoyable if you're a fan of supernatural romances. I'm looking forward to the next one.

Amazing story

Amazing story, a very interesting take on the historical character Vlad Tepesh. Horror, supernatural elements, romance & smut - makes for a brilliant listen. Great start to a series. Tavia Gilbert is very good at bringing the characters & the story to life! Definitely recommend! Couldn't put it down - listened to it at work

Nice reading

This is a nice piece of reading if you like vampires and romance mixed together. :) So many of us likes bad boys with pure golden hearts only for us. And we can easily placed ourselves in main character’s skin. I couldn’t give it full marks only because I like Vlad Dracula in a different version. If the main vampire had a different name it would be totally 5 stars. But all together the story is good. We have love and drama and damsel in distress who actually can take care for herself. And we have a juicy moments too. And the vampires don’t sparkle :) I don’t have experience in romance books but I think this one will satisfy my needs more than love stories placed in non supernatural worlds.

awesome

I was actually introduced to this author through this knight Prince series with Vlad and Leyla. I loved it so much I went off to find out what else she'd written, realised these books sit within the whole other story arc of the knight huntress world with cat and bones and promptly started working my way through that series.

firstly if you too didn't realise these books are stories within a larger story I highly recommend reading the whole series in order. I've seriously enjoyed it.

secondly this is my second read/listen to Vlad and layla's story, because I wanted to listen again knowing the fuller context of the wider story arc, along with all the other characters, and I'm really glad I did. you by no means have to, I loved these books the first time before I realised the bigger story existed, but I'm really glad I have read them again within the bigger story arc because there are little references to things that have happened previously that I now understand this time round, because ' I was there' in a previous book, which, for me, just makes the stories a little richer, but as I said by no means necessary.


the vlad and Leyla story arc within the night huntress world is really great and this book doesn't let that good rep down, even on my second read/listen I enjoyed it immensely. there's a real wicked sense of humour that runs through the V & L storyline that I love, but aside from that this story has yet another really intersting twist on what can happen within the supernatural world that Jeaniene Frost is so good at. loved it.

Great story and good narrator. Poor quality download. Keeps skipping the odd words especially at the end of the chapter. Will return it. Happened in all in this series.
