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.
My Review
Ever since Leila has felt her psychic abilities weaken, she has felt that Vlad has been slowly withdrawing from her. She senses a distance between themselves that just keeps widening. When it becomes obviously apparent that she will never have his love, or he will never be willing to give it to her, when she loves him with a desperation. She knows that she must do the only thing left available to her...leave him for good. Leila never imagined how hard it would be to actually leave him, but when she returns to her old friend Marty and the carnival, she never thought it would be so hard to stay away from him. When there is a explosion, and she is the only survivor, she knows that there is someone that her life is in mortal danger. At first she doesn't know who to trust, but she turns to the one person who she feels she can trust, until circumstances change, and she finds herself with Vlad once more. Vlad is devastated when Leila leaves him, he feels rejected, but when he finds her back in his life, he can't bear to leat her ever leave him again. There is a danger lurking, that he is unable to pin point, and only fully trusting and working with Leila, will they be able to come down to the bottom of the danger that threatens her...because he knows he does love her fiercely and will do everything in his power to protect her no matter the cost.

The Hero 
Vlad, didn't become one of the strongest vampires alive out of sheer dumb luck. He was treated poorly as a younger man, and in turn had to become fierce and deliver justice with a firm hand. He doesn't feel guilty over his past, he accepts himself as he truly is. He has yet to find a woman he would want to keep by his side forever...until he finds his Leila. Leila is so unlike any woman, independent, loyal, protective of those that she loves, and loves deeply. Vlad isn't sure he can accept his love for her, he doesn't want to appear weak to his enemies. However when he almost loses her, he knows in his heart he could never let her go, and must protect her.

The Heroine 
Leila didn't always have psychic abilities. She ends up being elecrotruted and has felt guilty thinking she has been the cause of her mothers death all of these years. When she first meets Vlad, her family and closest friends warned her of the dangers of getting close to him. That he was a dangerous man that would only end up breaking her heart in the end. When it becomes obvious to her that he will never love her she leaves him. However what she never realized is that she should have put more faith in him, and only by trusting him Now will she be able to get to the bottom of the danger that seems elusive but surrounds them.

My Thoughts 
How can I say how much I LOVED Twice Tempted. I have been anxiously waiting for this book ever since I read Once Burned. Vlad and Leila are just explosive together. I adored both characters, there were so  many unique qualities about them both, that just made them perfect for each other. We see how desperately they really need each other. Vlad is just HOT and sexy beyond imagination....very *drool worthy* if I say so myself. He is so ALPHA, and has a commanding presence, and he loves control, and hates disobedience. So of course he would be drawn to Leila who would defy him right? Leila is a very strong willed woman, but not overly strong. She doesn't start out as a fighter, she she does have a more gently side but she can be a fierce fighter when the need arises. I loved how she strives to be  There was a variety of intense emotions that are displayed throughout the whole story, so vividly portrayed in such a way that is unique to the author and her writing. I also loved seeing Vlad and Leila grow stronger together in their relationship. I have to say though, one of the many things I like about this authors books, is that she always surprises me when I least expect it. There were certain things that occur in this book, where my eyes popped wide open in surprise, never expecting certain things to happen. So it was a delight to be surprised and be taken on such a exciting ride of passion, danger and intrigue. I found Twice Tempted to be a intense story that charmed me with every page. A must read for anyone that enjoys a thrilling romance that will knock your socks off!! Top of my list of favorites!! FANTASTIC!!

First Line 
This wasn't the first time I'd woken up as a captive. 

Favorite Quote 
"How often must I tell you that you mean more to me than vengeance? I can live without defeating my enemies, but I cannot live without you,"
Before I could respond, he crushed me to him, his mouth covering mine in a blistering kiss.

  1. OMG! I totally forgot that this was already out. Damn, I'll buy it right after this comment. I loved Once Burned and Vlad & Leila are perfect together. Though the ending was very bad for Leila, I really want to know what went wrong with her powers. I'm definitely looking forward to more Vlad and hopefully some Ian time.

    Fab review!

  2. Thanks!!! I had the same reaction, I almost forgot to buy it when it came out. I just love Vlad and Leila, and you will just love the second one...especially if you liked the first one.

  3. I really need to get my butt in gear still have yet to read book 1. Great review.
