Hannah Grey will do anything to escape the tortured memories haunting her. Every breath brings back the pain, the fear and the unbearable knowledge that she’ll never be the once-perfect girl everyone thought her to be. When the self-destructive fog of drugs, alcohol and meaningless sex starts to clear, Dante, a lion shifter sexier than sin itself, emerges through the darkness ready to rescue her for the second time in so many weeks.
In the safety of Dante’s embrace, Hannah allows herself to become the woman she’s always wanted to be—smart, sexy, capable and empowered. His every touch electrifies. His hot, hungry kisses set her senses ablaze. As Dante masters her body, Hannah finally finds the strength to master her fears.
Perfection shatters as a mysterious vampire escalates from anonymous phone calls to violent encounters. When Hannah’s enemies unite, placing both her and Dante in mortal peril, it’s going to take all of her newfound strength to face the coming darkness and save the man she loves.
About the Author:
Madeline Pryce wrote her first novel when she was ten, penned with neon-pink ink in a loose-leaf binder. Captivated by romantic literature, yet intrigued by the paranormal, she continues to develop her own voice, writing the kinds of stories that inspired her as a teen.
So, we have a two book series here, that include some exciting characters in some pretty horrible situations, liberally sprinkled with some spicy scenes. Now I’m going to admit something here… I loved Charlaine Harris’ Sookie Stackhouse books, but by the end they had gotten a bit turgid (I hate to say it!) so these books are an absolute find for anyone looking for that same supernatural cast of characters, thrust into engaging plots and with a few well-written sex scenes for good measure.
From a writer’s perspective, each book flowed nicely and I especially loved in Dark Innocence how we were first person from Hannah’s point of view. She was one of the only main characters to not be overtly supernatural, but she still had her fair share of problems! I really enjoyed the characters’ journeys from each book and, rather than random Joes that hop into character’s beds (which can happen a lot on erotic paranormal romance) each male lead was properly fleshed out too.
The front cover is dark and sensual so really does reflect the book well too.
Overall, I’d give Dark Innocent 5 out 5 stars. If you’re missing your Sookie Stackhouse, don’t worry, start reading Madeline Pryce.
