Dark Cravings - Madeline Pryce Blog Tour & Giveaway

I want to start by thanking Kat for hosting me on her blog today. The generosity I’ve been shown while putting together this blog tour has warmed my heart. <3

Today, I’m talking about first kisses. You know, the suspended moment in time when his lips hover over yours and you wonder will he or won’t he. Your heart pounds in your chest and with his every exhale, warm breath paints your lips. He cups the back of your head, pulls you close and flicks his tongue…

Wait, what? I forgot where I was for a moment. Oh, yes. Micah. Ella. Soul mates, forever bound together. Let’s back up and see the kiss that started it all…warning R rated for language and hot sexiness…


As a half-breed vampire, Ella Grey’s life sucks. 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’s 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.

“You’re so fucking hot.” Hands buried in my hair, he trailed his lips up my throat, nipped my chin, and found my mouth.

Our lips fused. Tongues tangled. Clumsy and eager, we pushed at each other’s clothing in a desperate rush to get undressed as quickly as possible. My jacket hit the ground. His followed. I peeled his shirt over his head and threw it.

Jesus he was perfect. I ran my hands over the hard curve of his shoulder, down to the tight muscles on his arms. His skin was smooth, warm and I wanted more. He cupped the back of my head and deepened our kiss. In every caress, I felt the urgency of his need. He rotated his hips and ground his thick shaft against my center. Yes. This was what I needed. What I’d craved since the moment we met.

“Tell me you want this,” Micah said.

I dug my fingers into his back and reveled in his hiss. Scratching up, I drew my nails along his neck and threaded my fingers through his hair. I tugged. His low moan was second only to the rich scent of his blood wafting into the air. I met his gaze and pulled him to me for a kiss.

He nipped my bottom lip but held our mouths a hair’s breadth away from touching. “Tell me, Ella.”

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.
