Once Burned (Night Prince, #1) by Jeaniene Frost
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.

What a way to close out the first month of summer! If you ask me, this week’s selection of new book releases (by no means exhaustive) covers a nice range of styles and subgenres. It was a real toughie trying to figure out which book to place in the featured position. Gena Showalter has a very much “highly anticipated” new series, Angels of the Dark. Everyone loves a new installment of Nicole Peeler’s Jane True series; same with the beloved Stacia Kane. And new series The St. Croix Chronicles is nothing if not intriguing, based on the premise and subgenre alone (Steampunk mystery). But in the end, it seems like Jeaniene Frost’s new spinoff Once Burned is what’s got many bookish folk abuzz. The author’s Night Huntress series seems to be a spinoff factory. ^_^
Any new releases going to make it onto your bookshelves this week?
