Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
My teaser this week is from the book Bound by Flames by Jeaniene Frost, book three in the Night Prince series. I can not express how much I have been looking forward to this book! It was highly anticipated ever since I finished book two and realised that the story didn’t end there, and this far it has not let me down. I love Jeaniene Frost’s books, she is such a talented writer, and they always draw me in from page one, and I practically hold me breath until I have finished the book. Seriously, I am living and breathing this book right now.
She (Gretchen) blew out a sigh and then gave Vlad a speculative look. “It’s Szilagyi, isn’t it? He’s not dead after all.”
“Why would you say that?” Vlad asked, his voice dangerously silky. We hadn’t told her. Had one of his staff been loose lipped?
She huffed. “You’re Dracula, so everyone knows your enemies don’t live long, but my dad and I are still locked up, so whoever’s yanking your chain must be the king of badasses. The only one person I know who fits that description is the same old vampire you couldn’t kill before.”
Vlad’s nostrils flared while I stared at my sister in disbelief. First calling him Dracula, then bringing up Szilagyi successfully faking his death twice? The nine pounds Gretchen had gained must’ve come from her new brass balls.

I was pleased to learn that Jeaniene Frost will be writing a fourth book in the series. This is the third book. If you are interested in reading it (which you should be!) I recommend starting with book one, or better yet, start with book one in the Nighthuntress series, Halfway to the Grave. The Night Prince series is a spin off of the Nighthuntress series, and though they can be read individually, they are most definitely best enjoyed together. Like coffee and chocolate!
