Publisher: HarperCollins Publishers
"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." (-Goodreads)
Why I am waiting:
The last few books by Jeaniene Frost have had Vlad in them, and he always intrigues me. I really want to know more about him. He has a super strong power that others fear, so it will be nice to see him with an equally strong lady. It will also be interesting to see what the story contains since he is such a well known character. He will also have his own series. There is currently a contract for two books in his branch off series.
