Cover Reveal: Once Burned

Once Burned 
(Night Prince Book 1)
Night Huntress World
by Jeaniene Frost
Release date: June 26, 2012

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.

I think I speak for us all when I say: Oh. My. Lord.
Like many of you, I love Vlad's snarky and cocky attitude and his soft side for those he loves. I am SUPER-DEE-DUPER excited to read his books and even more so now that the first one has a cover!

Here is the stepback:
(that's the first page when you open up the book)

Follow Friday (21)

Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee's View and Alison Can Read

Here is this week's question:

Which book genre do you avoid at all costs and why?

This question is tricky for me. Some of the genres I used to avoid like the plague I now love. I used to think cheesy paranormal romance would never grace my bookshelf........until I fell in love with Cat and Bones and the Demonica series. I never though I would cave to the pretty covers and read YA........until I fell in love with Shatter Me and Anna Dressed in Blood.

So, you see my predicament. Currently I avoid:

Contemporary books/romances
(Yuck, boring, give me something more! If no one is tormented by the fact that they shift into a furry being at night or lovers aren't kept apart by someone's secret supernatural powers........then it's not for me!)

(see above)

Happy Friday everyone!
