THE AVON AFFAIR IS A 14-DAY AVON BOOKS REVIEW EVENT
ORGANIZED AND HOSTED BY CURRENT AND ALUMNI MEMBERS OF
THE AVON ADDICTS.
Dating the Prince of Darkness has its challenges . . .
Leila’s psychic abilities have been failing her,and now she isn’t sure what the future holds. If that weren’t enough, her lover Vlad has been acting distant. Though Leila is a mere mortal, she’s also a modern woman who refuses to accept the cold shoulder treatment forever–especially from the darkly handsome vampire who still won’t admit that he loves her.
Like choosing between eternal love and a loveless eternity . . .
Soon circumstances send Leila back to the carnival circuit, where tragedy strikes. And when she finds herself in the crosshairs of a killer who may be closer than she realizes, Leila must decide who to trust–the fiery vampire who arouses her passions like no other, or the tortured knight who longs to be more than a friend? With danger stalking her every step of the way, all it takes is one wrong move to damn her for eternity . . .
Of all the mainstream authors I’d love to meet, Ms Frost is in my top five. Her novels are are some of the best I’ve read. I love her Night Huntress Series with Cat and Bones, but Vlad has always, from his first appearance, had my heart. No reason, just his character resonated with me right away.
I was worried when I knew Vlad had a book. I thought any love interest would not be able to complement or partner him. I needn’t have worried. Ms Frost created the perfect foil in Leila. (This is why I don’t write) In most circumstances, Leila could be a whiny, needy lead; not the way she’s written with Ms Frost’s deft touch. Yeah, I’m a big fan.
Vlad and Leila have some issues to work through in Twice Tempted. After the ending of Night Prince, you knew more was coming in their relationship. I’m trying desperately to review without spoilers. The problems that pop up were not exactly what I was expecting and their initial resolution was even more surprising.
The intensity between Vlad and Leila is frustrating on one level and jaw dropping on another. The twists and turns don’t stop even to the last page. Yep, you’re not gonna want to wait for the next novel. A couple of characters drop in to remind us they are still there and their stories are on-going. (Cat and Mencheres) Cat still cracks me up.
What CAN I tell you? Start Twice Tempted when you have some time. I was up until the wee hours wanting to finish it. The writing is phenomenal, as usual; the world building continues to grow and the characters are divinely written. No editing or plot holes, which we wouldn’t expect. I CAN tell you I’m looking forward to the next in The Night Prince Series very much!!.
Maybe one day I will get to meet Ms Frost. I hope!
