Once Burned by Jeaniene Frost

Genre:  Adult Paranormal Romance
Night Prince series, Book 1

Description (taken from Goodreads):
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 down in flames.

Is it bad that I want to deny reading these books because they're always stored in the romance section?  What's with that?  They should be in the paranormal/sci-fi section.  All the other paranormal romance is over there.  Why can't this one be there also?  Agh...  I'm a non-admitted romance lover (of the paranormal kind which only makes me more bizarre).

Once the vampires discover Leila's abilities, she becomes entwined with them.  With the main goal of staying alive, she must learn quickly who to trust and who to betray.  But when she puts her trust in Vlad, she doesn't realize he's a vampire with a history.  And he's also an arrogant prick.  (Just don't say that to his face.  Or think it for that matter.)

Talk about steaminess...  This book was awesome.  I don't understand why I waited so long to read this one.  Jeaniene Frost is one of my favorite authors, and it's because she can describe the best romantic tensions, the best lust moments, and you get where I'm going with this.  But I do have one buzz kill.  I can't stand Vlad.  Like the body, hate the guy (How can you even like a body when it's only in your head?  Yeah, Jeaniene Frost is that good).

If you're a paranormal romance lover and haven't picked up Jeaniene Frost, start with her Night Huntress series and read the books in order of publication.  My star ratings go according to Jeaniene Frost's other book ratings (otherwise this would be a 5 star).  I'll be picking up the next one soon...
