Title: Claiming Ecstasy
Jolie Dupree is prophesized to bring an end to the deadly war waging between the vampires and the Seelie court. Groomed from birth by a vicious mother, Jolie knows her future can only end in blood—and the murder of the one man she can’t resist. Consumed with guilt, Jolie can’t fight the lure of Nicolas Larkin, the vampire king. She returns to him over and over again, every caress of pain and every stroke of pleasure drawing her deeper into the darkness. She must decide between the concrete and the chaos, the light and the dark, for her choice will tip the scales between good and evil, and quite possible, cost Jolie her soul

Deliciously decadent, like a dark chocolate truffle, Pryce brings together these two characters in a lovely balance of dark and light that is highlighted with a physical and mental connection that serve only to ramp up the steam factor.
Jolie is the light side, a Seelie princess with a controlling mother that demands her relationship end in Nicholas’ death. Nicholas is the vampire King: Irish, delicious and drawn to the darker side of life. From the first sentence to the last, Pryce does a lovely job of comparing and contrasting the natures of these two, while making the darker side feel decadent and deliciously daring for Jolie.
In just over 30 pages, these two will capture your attention as they interact in several erotic scenes that combine kink, control, inner turmoil and a healthy dose of imagery to bring the reader plenty of vicarious thrills as the interplay between them sucks you into the story and Jolie’s choice. Ultimately, this is a choice for Jolie that is between her mother’s desires for revenge and her own desire to keep Nicholas forever.
