Wow! I just finished listening to Twice Tempted and I am blown away. I have been counting the months, days and then minutes after listening to "Once Burned", the first story about Vlad and Leila. I preordered the audiobook and downloaded it seconds after it appeared in my library.
The first story was really interesting, as unlike the previous novels in the Night Huntress World where the vampires, ghouls and demons have special powers, this time it is Leila, the human, who has extraordinary gifts.However, unlike the Night Huntress novels which achieved closure for the main story arc in each novel, Once Burned left us hanging.
This story has even more plot twists, with unpredictable events continually surprising the reader, yet they are integrated seamlessly into the plot line. Lots of trouble, broken hearts and romance, action and adventure, loyalty and betrayal. What a wild ride!
However, at the end, just when I thought the whole plot was going to wrap up nicely, Jeanine Frost left us with another cliff hanger! I am really glad that there will be more Vlad and Leila, but now I need to go scour the author's website to see how long I will have to spend in agonized waiting to find out how this story finally ends! I sure hope it won't be any longer than the wait for this book.
If you read Once Burned, if you are a Night Huntress Cat and Bones fan, this is a must buy audiobook. However if you are as impatient as I am, you may want to wait until this mini series within the larger Night Huntress World has concluded, as the wait is really going to kill me!
Once again, Tavia Gilbert has done a fantastic job with the narration and her skill really enhanced an already exciting story, and bravo to her and Frost for another great story. Hmmm. I think I'll have to listen to them back to back next. . . or maybe listen to the entire series again, as I do not want to leave the Night Huntress World!

This book is worth the wait, you wouldn't expect all the events that will happen here, you would think they will be continuing the search as all will think so. But no, this one is full of heart breaks, hearts unbreaks, death and surprises....
when i recall what happened here, i'm actually surprised of all the events... I would say its better than the first one..
Narration is great as always, Tavia is a really good narrator.
What is negative in this series is its length, the Cat & Bones books are longer than these ones, and I would really like if the 3rd book of this series would be longer .
So, another great addition to Frost's books, and can't wait to read the next book (which ever series its going to be from)

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes, I would. it has a strong story with a very good narrator.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
I loved the strength of character and the tussle between Vlad and Leila - the moments when Leila lays down her wants and Vlad refuses to give way - the scene when he walks away and she leaves is so strong!
Any additional comments?
This is the second book about Vlad and Leila and the strong story continues. Really enjoyed the complex situations and story development. Will definitely be looking out for the next book in the series.
