I have mixed feelings about this book. I finished it in one day, so obviously I enjoyed it. It is fast paced with enough action, intrigue and sexy time to hold my interest. However, something is missing in this story. I didn't enjoy it as much as Once Burned. Vlad becomes the romantic hero too soon. Also, there were many times I wanted to hit the heroine, Leila. She's very obtuse. She judges Vlad by the standards of our time, so she expects a big "I love you" from the most lethal vampire alive. She was unable to see how much he did for her. She leaves him because she think he doesn't care enough for her.

These two could have benefitted from the book "The Five Love Languages" by Gary Chapman. Leila is clearly a Words of Affirmation person. She needs to hear ILY. Vlad is an Acts of Service person. Giving his blood, sharing his home, protecting her are his expressions of love.

Vlad seemed different in this book. He was tamed too early in the relationship. The big event that happens in this story should happen in the third book. Vlad is still a very appealing, brooding alpha male hero. I thought he gave Leila more than what he got from her so much it weakens his status as a Master vampire known for his vengeance. Towards the end, I almost started to feel sorry for him because she was always running headlong into dangerous situations, so similar to Cat in her earlier days. Vlad and Leila are a power couple that match Cat and Bones for passion and power, but this sequel to Vlad and Leila's story isn't anywhere as good as the sequel to Cat and Bone's, One Foot In The Grave.
