July Group Read: Once Burned by Jeaniene Frost


Vampire Book Club group readAs a general rule, our group read picks are not new releases. We like picking titles that are readily available in bookstores, internationally and in libraries. Once in a while, though, there is a book that almost every VBC reader leaps to buy on release day. So, am I surprised to see Once Burned by Jeaniene Frost take 60 percent of the vote in our July Group Read poll?

Of course not.

Once Burned is the first in a new Night Prince series, spinning off of Frost’s popular (and recommended) Night Huntress series. It was enough to make me change my mind about Vlad and realize the Romanian vampire will force Bones’ fans to do a double-take. (Spoiler-free review)

Are you ready to see what makes Vlad so damn sexy? Are you ready for a paranormal romance with fire and electricity — both literal and figurative?

Join us for the July Group Read of Once Burned. We will post weekly discussion questions at our Goodreads group (expect to see associate VBC reviewers Candace and Jo helping out here) and then a nice end-of-the-month Twitter Vlad-a-palooza, er, chat.

Once Burned by Jeaniene FrostShe’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.
