“This was one of my favorite reads of this year, and not just because I’m crushing hard on Vlad.  It was action packed, emotionally charged, and corchingly hot.  What more could I ask for?” ~Under the Covers

Dear Vlad,

Last year I wrote a sincere letter spilling my feelings.  Now I have to confess that I wanted to punch you in the face when this book started and almost through the halfway mark.  But I should also apologize because I should’ve never doubted how magnificent you are.  The epitome of everything alpha male that I love and crave.  You can be ruthless and you can be sweet.  Scorching and yet oh so tender and romantic.  But you are always YOU.  Who would’ve thought I would fall more in love with you, yet here I am.  Falling deeper in love with you.  And having to share you with Leila.  But it’s ok, she’s worthy of you and I can deal as long as I get Mr. Hot Hands to myself sometimes.

Your true lover,

Francesca

The Night Prince series has more of paranormal romance feel for me than Ms. Frost’s Night Huntress.  It is all about Vlad and Leila, how they work together, their romance grows, their powers expand and how they change for each other.  Vlad took a turn for the worst in the beginning but I have to stay that throughout this series and even after falling in love, Ms. Frost has kept his character true to his self.  He’s a badass, he’s dominating, he’s powerful, and things supposed to go as he wants.

Leila wants more from him than he seems willing to give so she decides to leave.  There is still a big bad after Vlad and now they are going after his next weakest link, which is Leila.  There’s suspense and action and an all too sexy vampire that steams up the pages with his personality, his anger and his sex appeal.

Through all this, I have to say Leila is a great heroine.  She’s smart and cautious, but she’s strong enough to face things head on.  She was again great in TWICE TEMPTED.  She’s able to stand up to big tough old vampires as well as her own family.  She follows her heart and protects who she loves.  I give her a great 5 stars for being such a memorable heroine and not letting herself be overshadowed by the greatness that is Vlad.

This was one of my favorite reads of this year, and not just because I’m crushing hard on Vlad.  It was action packed, emotionally charged, and corchingly hot.  What more could I ask for?  Now I can’t wait to see what’s next!

Favorite Quotes:

I might’ve brought Vlad to his knees at last, but in so many ways, he would never bend.  I knew that as surely as I knew I’d always love him, and it left me with only one answer.

“I dare because I want no misunderstand between us.  I am everything you think I am, but I love your daughter, and what I love, I protect with all of the violence in me, which, as you’ve guessed, is considerable.”

Today, I woke up in Vlad’s bed as Mrs. Dracula.

I’m a 30 something sun lover living in the Big Apple (read New York).I’m a book and coffee addict and lover of all things elephants.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!

I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
