Book Beginnings on Fridays

Book Beginnings on Fridays is a meme hosted at Rose City Reader designed to feature the book you are reading right now by sharing the first few lines of the story.

After work today I’m digging into Once Burned by Jeaniene Frost.

Once Burned by Jeaniene Frost

“I parked my bike in front of the restaurant, wiping the perspiration from my upper lip.”

An odd way to start a romance novel, and one that’s as burning hot as it’s title suggests from what I’ve heard, but I have no doubt that Frost will deliver. Fans have been waiting for Vlad’s story for years, and the first part is finally here!

Here’s the summary, taken 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.

  1. At least flames of passion can’t destroy a vampire. I also like the contrast of the author’s name with the title of the book, that and the fact the cover looks like it is ice cold. I hope you enjoy it!

    Here’s my Book Beginnings.
