Review: Dark Innocence by Madeline Pryce
Title: 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. 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.

Having an eidetic memory isn’t always a good thing especially when you have been tortured. Hannah will do anything to escape those memories including drugs, alcohol and meaningless sex. With one phone call, she finds herself back in the safety of Dante’s arms. Cleaning up her act she knows no one can except her, flaws and all but the sexy lion shifter. As Hannah builds her relationship with Dante a new threat emerges, and it may take all she has to save herself and the man she loves.
I didn’t know nor had I read the previous book but in reality it didn’t matter. Holy sexy shifter, I loved this story! The story starts out confusing with Hannah being a hot mess on her self-destructive path. As the story progresses you begin to understand her actions. In comes in Dante, her savior, her rescuer and all around hotness (Pauses to wipe drool). Yowza what a man, lion, shifter! Back at her sister’s home, we get to encounter several great secondary characters I assume from said previous book. I will say this, I so wanted to kick Eli’s butt for being such a jerk. As for the antagonist, there are plenty of twists to the the story line that kept the book from being all vampy and smutty. And while we are on the subject, let me say the author not only created some really hot scenes between Hannah and Dante that certainly burn up the pages but she did it with tasteful style. I was hooked from the very beginning, devouring Dark Innocence in a few hours. Between the characters, romance and plot twist, my only complaint would be I wish the book was longer because when I reached the final page, I found myself begging for more.
I’m so glad I discovered author Madeline Pryce. She has a way with words and writing that keep me flipping pages without pausing for anything. Any fan of hot PNR is going to love her books. But for now, I highly suggest reading Dark Innocence because if you aren’t, you are really missing out on a really juicy story.
