Summary from Goodreads:

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.

Review by Amy:

Ok let me say first, I have never read the book Dracula nor have I watched the original movie. Vlad you sexy ,sexy man I was waiting for the real deal. Once again Jeaniene Frost didn't let me down. I was captured in the first chapter and couldn't put the book down. I liked Leila from the start and can honestly say she is the perfect woman for Vlad since I can't have him.

The story begins with Leila, a young woman, who works with a traveling circus. As a child she touched a downed power line and it resulted in giving her special abilities. Her life is lived each day avoiding people as best possible because direct contact with her will electricute them. She also see's into the past,present and future by making contact with her right hand. This endangers her life when she is abducted by vampires who want to use her to capture Vlad Tepesh.

While being held against her will she is told to find him and determine when he will be vulnerable. She does as she is told only to discover that he is a mind reader and knows she is spying on him. She decides to put her life in his hands by convincing him she is not his enemy and needs help.

 Vlad rescues her and begins to use her abilities to find the mastermind behind his betrayl. An accidental brush of her hand shows Leila that she will be Vlads lover but is that something she wants or can she change the future? He is ruthless when it comes to protecting what is his, and torture is not beyond his method to get what needs to be done. Leila questions if she can be with someone who has such small compassion for life.

 As Leila fights for her life and the life of her loved ones she discovers that this mysterious man is making himself at home in her heart. The problem is he has made it perfectly clear that love is an emotion beyond him. Is her love enough to make this work or will it all go up in flames????

Amy gave Once Burned 5 Stars!
