Book Description

Book 1 in the Dark series...

Ella Grey's life sucks. A half-breed vampire, she does her best to pass the time killing demons and secretly admiring her Shadow Hunter partner, Micah. He's hot, dangerous and knows it. He'd be just Ella's type if he weren't likely to kill her the moment she put a toe out of line. 
A chance encounter with a succubus changes everything. From the second the succubus' spell washes over them, Ella and Micah are helpless to keep their hands off one another. The sex, when it's not leaving them on the verge of death, is earth shattering and for the first time in ages Ella is connected with someone on a level she'd feared lost forever. But a dangerous prophecy has been set into motion, and if Ella's not careful it'll pull her straight from Micah's arms and into the deepest bowels of the underworld.

A Romantica® paranormal erotic romance from Ellora's Cave
Publisher's Note: This book was previously published under the title Blood Lust Rising. It has been revised and expanded for EC.

* My original review of Blood Lust Rising, has been updated for Dark Cravings

You can tell that DARK CRAVINGS is going to be a great read from the first Chapter. Ella and Micah cant stand each other but also have mad attraction. Ella is a born hunter and also happens to be a half vampire. Because she is now half vampire the hunters despise her and are always looking for a way to get rid of her. Micah her Shadow Hunting partner was sent to keep an eye on her and report on her back to his father the head of the Shadow Agency. Little does Ella know, he hasn't really told his father much.

There is non stop action and suspense going on in DARK CRAVINGS. Ella and Micah's hate for each other gets extremely complicated early on after they wake up together naked and covered in blood and sporting new tattoos. They tend to bicker a lot but it is extremely entertaining watching their relationship change and grow. Their love scenes are nice and steamy. There is a great array of interesting characters. Castro who happens to be a Demon Lord was one of my favorites besides the main characters.

Madeline Price brought a great cast of characters, an attention getting plot and a great romance. I enjoyed DARK CRAVINGS and look forward to what happens next.

I gave it 4/5 stars

5.0 out of 5 stars Hard to put Down!!! January 30, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a revamp of the previous book titled Blood Lust Rising. Given a new cover and a slight but well worthy revision.

Micha & Ella are thrust together in an unordinary way, though it's whats under the surface buried deep in Micah that takes hold. They are hunters, Ella a half breed with a heartbeat and Micah with an undiscovered past, working to rid the world of demons. Until one night the unexpected happens and their lives and the lives of their family and friends are intertwined and they struggle to find a way out. This book oozes steaminess, well written characters, and a down right HOT ASS vamp, demon, and shifter.

Will Ella and Micah be able to handle what is in store for them and what's about to unfold? What will happen to Eli, Micah's brother, and will Hannah ever be the same again?

I can't wait to read book 2 Dark Innocence!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Dark Cravings Review January 15, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
The first book in the Dark series is an intriguing action packed paranormal story that keeps the reader on the edge of their seat.

Half-breed vampire Ella Grey does her best to pass the time killing demons and secretly admiring her Shadow Hunter partner, Micah. He's hot dangerous and he knows it, he'd be her just her type if he wasn't just waiting for a reason to kill her. But then a demon hunt turns into a fight for their life with a succubus that changes everything and now somehow they are mated for life, her sire is back, and the Vampire Queen wants her dead? How'd that happen?

The fast paced and intriguing plot starts off with a bang and the excitement keeps growing as the battles escalate between the good guys and the bad guys. The tension builds as the line between the two are not clearly marked and the reader has to decide just who to root for. The author brings the gripping story to life with vivid images and strong, bewitching characters that the reader can easily relate to.

The attraction between Micah and Ella radiates from every page and the sex scenes explode with passion and leave the reader sizzling. The author portrays the emotions, passion and personalities of all the characters with intense detail and the reader feels as if they know the characters personally.

The author has created a paranormal world where there are shades of gray that keeps the reader guessing and incorporated some unique elements that add depth to the story. All the characters are intriguing and leave the reader wanting to know more and the author ensures that the reader is enraptured with them and the world they live in.

Once I started reading, there was no way I could put this story down until it was finished. I love the spin on the Vlad Tepes legend and the characters that she has created have certainly grabbed my attention and I am looking forward to the next one.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fantastic Paranormal Erotic Romance! January 15, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I have read many vampire/demon romance novels over the years, but the author has a completely unique take on the subject and has written an intriguing story that kept me turning the pages into the small hours!

Ella Grey is a half breed vampire (still half human i.e. has a heartbeat). She is a hunter with the Shadow Agency, a sort of police force that hunts and kills demons. She is a fantastic character. She is feisty, loves a good fight and is secretly crushing on her partner.

Micah McGregor is the son of the Shadow Agency's boss. He is extremely charismatic, and has his own secrets. I could easily see him walking around, going after demons.

Madeline Pryce has written a clever, fast paced novel, which takes you on a roller coaster ride! The characters seemingly jump off the page (or is it you get sucked in? (no pun intended!)). The action is intense, and so is the bedroom action! There are some hot and heavy scenes here, so be prepared!

I do not recommend this book for younger readers due to the explicit nature of some of the scenes. There is also a lot of profanity, so if you are easily shocked or offended, I do not recommend this book. However, if you are looking for a fantastic, steamy paranormal romance, this book is for you. I am now looking forward to reading the next book in the trilogy - the teaser at the end of the book certainly got me hooked!
