Guest Post: Dark Cravings By Madeline Pryce

Guest Post
A-DARK CRAVINGS-Blog Tour presented by Madeline Pryce

Thank you Book Devotee Reviews for having me on your blog today! 

Today, we are at the bar with Richard. He’s a liar and a dickhead.

Head of the Shadow Agency. Oh, and he may or may not be Micah’s dad.

“There seems to be a great many details you’ve left out in your report. I didn’t know I needed to bring a stake with me. How long has she been a full-fledged vampire? And how long have you been the blood whore’s play thing?”

“Is there something you actually wanted, Father?” Substitute the word father with asshole, because that was what I knew Micah really meant.

“I find your lack of respect appalling, son.” Richard said son, yet I knew he meant ungrateful brat. Touché.

Jack and Coke

The picture is explanation enough…


Black Devil Martini—Dark rum and a black olive garnish give this martini its midnight hue, a color as dark as Richard’s soul.

2 oz dark rum 
1/2 oz dry vermouth 
Black olives
Orange sugar


Stir and strain into chilled martini glass that has been rimmed with orange sugar (dip glass in water, then dip into sugar). Garnish with black olives.


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.

A Romantica® Paranormal erotic romance from Ellora’s Cave

Publisher’s Note: This book was previously published under the title Blood Lust Rising. It has been revised and expanded for EC.


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.

That Black Devil Martini looks sinister just like Richard. Your inspiration picture was spot on. Enjoying the tour. Loved the book. Anyone who hasn't read it needs to go out and get a copy ASAP. It was awesome. Can't wait for Dark Innocense at the end of the month.

All books need a good villain, and he sure makes one.

How did I not see these? LOL. Okay, here we go in order. I apologize for not replying earlier.

Kate - Yes, villains are so crucial to the story. The more we hate them, the better the story! Thank you for coming out <3

Froggy - LOL, root for Richard!!! NOOOOOOOOO!!!! lol. Once you read the book, you'll be wanting to stab something pointy into his eye.

Tamye - LOL, I saw that picture and burst out laughing. I think it was Ella who called him a rat-eyed fascist bastard... or something like that. I'm so glad you enjoyed the book!! Thank you for continuing to support me. ((HUGS))

Sherry - Yes, Richard does play a good bad guy, and there is SO much more to come from him. Wait until Dark Secrets. You'll be cursing the day he was born.

Lori - Thank you for coming out :) Yes, all books need a bad guy we can yell at so our family members can look at us like we are crazy. LOL. Oh wait, maybe that's just me.
