Author Spotlight: Madeline Pryce

About Madeline Pryce

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.

Dark Craving


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.

Holy smokes, I have found a new favorite author! Madeline Pryce has completely floored me with her writing and imagination ability. Dark Craving had me totally captivated from the very beginning to the very end.

Micah is my new book boyfriend obsession. He is a possessive, alpha, badass hunter that helps a secret organization eradicate rogue creatures of the night. Due to an unforeseen event Micah’s life gets turned upside down. He now has to deal with his new found identity while also dealing with his uncontrollable lust towards his partner.

His partner, Ella, is a freshly turned vampire that is insecure about her new lifestyle. Ella has issues with trusting men. She was burned in the past by someone that she thought she loved, and loved her in return. Because of his betrayal she finds it difficult to have any sort of relationship with Micah. One night changes both their lives forever.

I really enjoyed watching the chemistry deepen between the two. When they came together it was scorching hot. The passion between them burns up the pages. They despise each other but can’t keep their hands to themselves. They both misunderstood the other and when forced to be together they realized there was more to both of them. Uncontrollable forces have them draw to each to where they are in physical pain when they are away from each other. However, there are several enemies trying to keep them apart.

The world in which Madeline has created is unique. She provides us with great details throughout the story. The secondary characters leave you with hope that the she will write their stories as well. It was extremely hard to put this book down, and when it was over I couldn’t wait to start the next book in the series, Dark Innocence. I highly recommend this book to anyone that enjoys paranormal romances that includes a kickass hero and strong heroine characters. Well done Madeline Pryce!!

Excerpt (Warning! Super Hot!!)
Once I started kissing Micah, I couldn’t stop. Maybe it was because I was moderately drunk, or maybe it was because each time Micah pressed his mouth to mine, I lost a little bit more of myself.

I didn’t dare speak. Micah pulled out his wallet, threw some cash on the counter and pulled me out of the bar without looking back. We were barely out into the main section of the tunnel when Micah pushed me up against the cold stone wall. I pulled him close. He pressed his mouth to mine and I gave in to complete surrender. I had no idea how long we mingled there, lost in each other.

I was breathless and panting, still silent, when he pulled me from the wall and drew me through the maze of rooms to the exit. The electric buzz of the guitar bouncing off the walls faded. The constant push-pull of conversation disappeared. The rapid click-click of my heels against the ground became nonexistent.

Outside the rain fell like a heavy, pounding beat against the broken gravel road. If it was possible, the District looked even worse through the haze of rain. Darkened and bowed wood blocked the windows of nearby buildings. Rats scampered under awnings, clambering over each other to find shelter. At least half an inch of dirty mud and gravel-laden water spilled over the gutters and flooded the sidewalks.

The wind blew and the slant of pelting rain shifted sideways. None of it mattered. The second we stepped into the storm, we were drenched. We sprinted to the car, and each heavy thud of Micah’s boots against the ground sent up a spray of water to splatter my legs.

In the dark, the black silhouette of Micah’s car was little more than a shadow. The second we reached his car, his arms were around me. He lifted me off the ground, spun me in one fluid movement until my back was against the passenger door. Rain splattered off the roof, a heavy drum that matched our heartbeats.

His hands were wet and slippery against my cheeks. Pulling roughly, he tugged until our lips met, promising things I ached for. I clutched at his wet shirt, desperate to have him closer. I never wanted him to let me go. He slid his hands from my cheeks to my neck and then threaded his fingers through the tangle of my wet hair.

He used one hot, rough hand to palm my thigh. Heat from his touch spread  and stopped the shivers of cold I hadn't even noticed. Micah pulled, urged my leg around his hip. He slid his hand up, up, and oh, God yes, up. He cupped my sex, rubbed me with sure, deliberate strokes. I was on fire. Pleasure warred with the tightening of my inner muscles. I was on the verge of climax when, instead of sending me over, Micah gripped the crotch of my panties and ripped.

My world spun. That was the only way to describe what was happening, what Micah was doing to me. He pulled the tab on his zipper. The rasp of metal sent a wave of goose bumps across my arms.

Micah pulled his mouth from mine. I opened my eyes and pulled in breath after breath. Our gazes met, held.

“Tell me you want me,” he ordered.

“I want you.”

His cock slid along my opening.

“Do you want me to fuck you? Right now, right here?” he asked, never breaking eye contact.


He thrust.

Dark Innocence



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.

Woot!! Madeline Pryce has done it again! Dark Innocence is the second book in her Dark series and it absolutely compliments the first book, Dark Craving.

In the second book we get to witness the connection between Dante, a shapeshifter, and Hannah, an eidetic book nerd, turned party girl. These two characters and their story is so different than the two main characters in the first book.

The first book left off with Hannah struggling to overcome her kidnapping and attack. In Dark Innocence she tries to help alleviate the pain and memories by sleeping her way through a bunch of guys on campus and starts using drugs. She is extremely emotionally damaged. She hits rock bottom and calls the one guy that has helped her through her issues, Dante.

Dante has watched over Hannah since the night he rescued her from her attackers. He cares for her but hasn’t made his move because he felt she needed to work through her problems on her own. He also thought she cared deeply for someone else. One night he finds Hannah in his bed and his control snaps. Although he unleashes his possessiveness he is still gentle and patient with Hannah, something that she desperately needs.

Oh my God, the passion between these two blew my mind away and had my panties in a perpetual need of changing. Dante is a possessive dominant man that likes his dirty talk. Hannah is a woman that knows just what he needs and gives it to him. Together, they totally obliterate the sheets.

I absolutely loved Dante and want him for my very own. Hannah made me want to crawl through the pages and give her a great big hug. These two totally compliment each other. As with Dark Craving, Madeline captures your attention in Dark Innocence and knows how to keep it. At times I laughed, at times I was sad, and at times I wanted to rage. I can’t wait for the next in the series!! A highly recommended read!!

Excerpt (Warning! Sizzling!!)
“You’re completely naked under that scrap of material?” He came up behind me and the heat of his body lined my back. He pressed his erection against my ass. “Are you trying to kill me, or is it just accidental?”
I looked up into the mirror and caught his gaze as he reached around to my front and palmed my thigh. His golden eyes were molten, the lids heavy. Even though he’d shaved, I could still see the slight discoloration of stubble where it grew thickest around his mouth and along his jaw. He scraped his hand up my leg, a slow tantalizing caress that stole my breath.
The soft material of my dress pushed up higher and higher. Goose bumps tightened my flesh and I had to close my eyes to block out the addictive hunger so plainly written on his face. He curved his hand in, knuckles brushing my slick curls. I sucked in a breath and parted my legs as he cupped my pussy. I was wet and dripping with arousal.
“So wet.” He nipped my ear.
My lids fluttered open.
“That’s it baby, look at me while I finger fuck you. Know who’s inside you, who’s going to make you scream.” He rubbed me slowly, the tips of his fingers teasing the slit of my sex when he pressed the heel of his palm against my clit.
I fought my moan. “The door’s still open.”
He rubbed harder, adjusted his stroke and pressed two fingers deep. In, out. “Then you better be quiet.” His voice was a sexy whispering rasp in my ear. His pace sped in a challenge he was sure to win.
“Oh god,” I panted.
“Do my fingers feel good in your pussy?”
I should have never admitted I liked it when he talked dirty to me.
“Yes.” I lifted my hand and threaded it behind his neck to hold him close.
“Do you want to come?”
I dug my fingers into his flesh and bit my lip to keep from crying out. “Yes.”
He grabbed the hand I had behind his neck and placed it palm down on the dresser. “Put both hands here and don’t move them. If you do, I’ll stop touching you.”
My pussy throbbed and I did as I was told...
