Play with fire, pay the price.
Leila’s years on the carnie circuit were certainly an education. What she didn’t learn: how to be a vampire, or how to be married to the most famous vampire of them all. Adjusting to both has Leila teetering on a knife edge between passion and peril, and now the real danger is about to begin…
Vlad must battle with a centuries-old enemy whose reach stretches across continents and whose strength equals his own. It isn’t like Vlad to feel fear, but he does…for Leila, because his enemy knows she is Vlad’s greatest weakness. As friend and foe alike align against him—and his overprotectiveness drives Leila away—Vlad’s love for his new bride could be the very thing that dooms them both…

My Thoughts; I am absolutely in love with this series and characters. I don't even know how to write out how I feel.
I have been reading Jeaniene Frost for a few years now; beginning with the Night Huntress series, where I eventually met Vlad Tepesh (swoon). I have sat on ready for every single one of the books in this series. This one, however, is by far my favorite to date. This series (and its companions) are also my introduction into the world of audio books. My very first Audible book ever was This Side of the Grave, narrated by Tavia Gilbert. I have to say that she is fantastic, and her narration brings a completely new level to the books themselves. Try them, you will not be disappointed.
I have cried and laughed and gasped and held my breath. They are never boring and always keep you on the edge of your seat. And did I mention.... VLAD TEPESH??
If you are a fan of vampires, or just paranormal in general, I highly recommend this series of books. It is intertwined with another series so there could be a spoiler here and there. If you are interested in discovering this multi-series experience from the beginning check out the reading order listed... *HERE.
