Twice Tempted cover, stepback, and description

The subject line says it all: Below is the the cover, stepback (picture on the inside cover flap) and description for Twice Tempted, Night Prince book two, out March 26th, 2013. In keeping with the theme from Once Burned, it features only Vlad on the cover but has both Vlad and Leila on the stepback. Oh, and apparently it’s illegal for model Paul Marron to appear in public while wearing a shirt, heh.

Dating the prince of darkness has its challenges.
Leila’s psychic abilities have been failing her,and now she isn’t sure what the future holds. If that weren’t enough, her lover Vlad has been acting distant. Though Leila is a mere mortal, she’s also a modern woman who refuses to accept the cold shoulder treatment forever–especially from the darkly handsome vampire who still won’t admit that he loves her.
.

Like choosing between eternal love and a loveless eternity.

Soon circumstances send Leila back to the carnival circuit, where tragedy strikes. And when she finds herself in the crosshairs of a killer who may be closer than she realizes, Leila must decide who to trust–the fiery vampire who arouses her passions like no other, or the tortured knight who longs to be more than a friend? With danger stalking her every step of the way, all it takes is one wrong move to damn her for eternity . . .

As I stated in the post revealing the Once Burned cover, no, this is not really how I picture Vlad and Leila (and Vlad would set fire to anyone taking a picture of him in that pose, lol) but it’s close enough :). Soon, I’ll have downloadable wallpapers of the cover/stepback courtesy of the fabulous Syd Gill. Again, Twice Tempted comes out March 26th. As per usual, a couple weeks before that, the first 20% will be available to read online and I’ll release the book trailer, too. Next up after Twice Tempted is Cat and Bones book seven, officially titled Up From the Grave. Tentative release date for that is winter 2013.

And now, back to writing!

*My apologies for all the dots. WordPress keeps taking out the spaces and I’ve given up trying to fight it.

**ETA: Once I was done writing Twice Tempted, I realized that the Night Prince series will be a trilogy, with Vlad and Leila’s story ending at book three.

    Do you have any ideas for what’s after the last Night Prnce novel? I’ve heard that your ending The Night Huntress novels after 8 or 9 (can’t remember which I heard now) and wth leaving the Night Prince books a trilogy, I was just wondering if you had any fture plans as of yet.

    • Jeaniene says

      Hi Lindsey, I have a few things set up after the last C&B book and the end of the Night Prince series. Can’t share yet but I’ll be posting about it soon :).

  2. Mary says

    Awesome, I am really looking forward to the books. I was hoping if, after the Night prince series is ended, there may be time for an Ian Novel or two or three? Please I love Ian and have been waiting for his book forever!!!

    • Sara says

      yes! LOVE Ian and think you can make an hilarious book series out of his character ;) really hoping you find inspiration to write about him more! :D love your writing Jeanine :)

    Hello Snowgirl!

    I love you books but I am starting to dislike the cover art. They look like girl porn(romance) novels to me. The good thing about Kindles is they often drop the cover art.

    When are you touring again?

    V^^^^V

    • Jeaniene says

      Hey Vampy! Yes, after several covers showing Cat that were more male-friendly, the women get some eye candy with Vlad’s covers. Turnabout’s fair play, right? ;-).

      I don’t know if I’ll be touring for Twice Tempted, but I will be at the Virginia Festival of Books in March, plus the Florida Reading Festival, and I’ll have a singing at Malaprops in Asheville, NC around release date. That’s all I’m aware of so far. Hope to see you at one of those!

    I really loved Vlad’s character.He’s not totally evil,not a perfect guy.Very dangarous,charesmatic,obviously irresistable,a perfect match for Leila.I really dislike the cover although the male model is hot…It doesn’t do the book genre justice.It’s more fiction than just romance.Can’t wait for Twice Tempted…

  5. Carley Heit says

    I agree that the covers of Vlad’s books don’t do the genre any justice. I wouldn’t pick it up if I didn’t know how good they are. The model is hot, not exactly how I pictured Vlad either, but It’s pretty close. I love Vlad’s books, I love the rest too, but Vlad is the best, wish you could’ve done more than 3 books in the night prince series.

  6. says

    I’ve been listening to all the series in Audible format, and have really enjoyed them. I’m very eager to see where you take the Vlad/Leila story, but don’t want to break the continuity. I’m already thinking about even though the release date isn’t till end of March!) Just wondering if you have an eta?

  7. Ellie says

    The cover is great, I like it much better than the cover for Once Burned. The coloring rocks!
    I was wondering if we’re going to get a snippet of Twice Tempted soon?

      • Name says

        Happy New Years! Okay, where is the snippet? ;) joking

        Thank you for being true to your reader, characters, and yourself by not forcing stories that are not there. We can only hope that Vlad and Leila jump, holler, and raddle your ears for more if it is possible. ;)

  8. Mary says

    No!!!! Please tell me you will not be ending it at book three??? Surely more can be done for this series?? I loved the first one and have already pre-ordered the second.

    Please do not give up on the series.

    • Jeaniene says

      Hi Mary. I’m not “giving up” on Vlad and Leila’s series by ending it at book three – I’m being faithful to telling the story that I have in my head. I don’t have a story beyond a third book so that’s why I’m not going to write a fourth. I wouldn’t want to throw anything onto a page simply to milk more out of characters. I hope you understand.

  9. jessica says

  12. Miika Wilson says

    Okay, so I can’t find another way to ask you this. But I would really like to see Ian in a Night huntress world book. Do you know if that is ever going to happen?
    Also can’t wait for the new Cat and Bones novel!

  13. Tabea says

    Hey!

    I really love these books!
    Few days ago the book was published in germany and I read it in a day.
    Now my favorite character isn’t Bones anymore :D
    I really really love Vlads character…
    Can’t wait for the next books! I think I will buy twice tempted in English ’cause I can’t wait.
    And it’s hard to wait for the next C6B novel.

    But I don’t like the cover, don’t know why, but he’s not my image of Vlad..(:

    keep on writing like this and ignore my bad English (:

  14. Goleh says

    Dear Jeaniene,

    Firstly thaaaaaaaaaaank you for writing. Secondly I have no idea how I m going to wait until March 26th. I realize you are super busy but I wish you could release both remain g books of the trilogy on February 26 ! I(I realize that would be in the realm of impossible) anyways thank you for enchanting us all with the amazing world you have created.

    By the way I loved both night huntress world book covers but while reading once burned I kept imagining Gerard butler in Attila

    What do you think?
    Marking off days until twice burned.

  15. Keyra says

    I love love LOVE all of your books! I never get tired of reading them! I can’t wait until Tempted comes out I’m so excited! I’m sad that there are only a few books left in these series. It would be awesome if you could do a book for Ian! All the other main characters you brought in found love it’d be sad if Ian was the exception but I understand you can’t force genius! Keep being awesome!

  16. Karina says

    Dear Jeaniene,

    You have outdone yourself. Oh my god I had heart palpitations while I was reading Twice Tempted. Here I was thinking Once Burned was oh so flipping amazing, how I was wrong! Twice Tempted is all that Once Burned was and more! I love Leila as a character; she is strong and likeable and her character traits are so human. Too often (as much as I love Cat), I realize how different Cat is from other human girls. Of course, so Is Leila but I find I can relate to her more.

    Vlad? Don’t even get me started. His arrogance truly precedes him yet I was blown away by how true he was to his character, but at the same time manages to express his love for Leila.

    The worst part of the book? Getting to the final page (ebook) and then realizing there’s no more!! I really really can’t wait to read your next works – the final book to this trilogy will be hands off truly astounding. Hats off to you Ms. Frost for being such an amazing writer.

  17. Heather says

    I just read Twice Tempted! I loved it!!!! I want the third now, I have to wait a very long time for the third time for it don’t I?? :(:( And I can not believe the ending, that was mean..

  18. Jolene says

    Hi Jeaniene,

    I just finished the second Night Prince novel an I’m looking forward to the third and final one!

    I really like how you’ve written the character Maximus. He’s so alone in the sea of people in his life and wants to find love so badly that he lets himself get caught up in the idea of Leila, even if it splits up a half-millennia friendship! I think that his past makes him think he doesn’t deserve true happiness and it is so heartbreaking to read his struggle.

    My question to you:

    Will we get to read about him finally finding somebody that can love him as he should be? Someone strong that can put all of his doubts to rest? It would be nice to read about, but perhaps in something more substantial than a novella! I think Maximus deserves better than that! ;)

    Thank you for your adventures, Jeaniene! They make for the very best escapes from ordinary life!

    Sincerely,
    Jolene

    • Jeaniene says

      I’m hopeful that Maximus can redeem himself in the final Night Prince book, but as of now, I don’t have a “book length” story about him in my head, sorry. Maybe one day! Characters have surprised me before *cough, Vlad, cough*
