#5 in Alien Huntress Series
Ecstasy in Darkness is an erotic blend of Lieutenant Ripley meets Alien Nation with spunky wit and enough sexual chemistry to make you take your ‘bad kitty’ spray bottle and give yourself a spritz to cool off. Showalter is like a fine wine as with each passing year her books only get better and better.
Ecstasy in Darkness starts off with a humorus bang with agents- in- training Noelle and Eva on a mission to capture the rabid vampire McKell and bring him back to the agency. McKell may hold the secret to beating the nymphomanic apocalyptic zombie virus (NAZ-V for short) that threatens to destroy earth. If AIR doesn’t find a cure soon the Alien Queen will unleash her minions unto the world and you can forget needing to count your WW points babe, cause no one is gonna get out of this alive.
Just what is it about McKell that makes him so special…
Agent’s-In-Training Ava and Noelle running a Sting operation on the grumpy vampire to get him to come back to the agency.
‘That’s a yes,’ he rasped (watching Noelle and Ava make out)
“Excellent choice! I’ve been dying to put my mouth all over this little morsel for too long. So come here, you sexy piece of goodnessness, you.” Noelle grabbed Ava by the shoulders and tugged her close, lips lowering to plant a big, wet one.
Ava made sure to moan really loudly as her hands slide down…She cupped Noelle’s ass with her right hand, made a mental note to inquire what kind of workout program her friend had been doing.
“Dear God,’ McKell said now.
[Ava}She squeezed the trigger.
The kiss ended, and Noelle grinned down at her. “Wow. I really felt your passion for me that time.”
“Seriously. How long have you been walking around with a huge crush on me.”
EID was just as enjoyable as the previous book in this series Seduce the Darkness. Ava’s perspective, her shortness, and her protective instincts with anyone that messes with her friends make her both spunky and likeable. Add a quirky relationship with her bloodthirsty BFF Noelle and you have some of the most memorable lines of the series. Hell, Ava likes the fact that McKell wears his victim’s fingers as jewlery, or as Patti the millionaire matchmaker would say ‘mannery’. There’s just something refreshing about a back-talking human that gives as much as she takes and would rather knife you up than discuss anything remotely icky as ‘feelings’.
If you’ve like and read other books in the Alien Huntress series, or looking for another Showalter book to add to your reading shelf, Ecstasy in Darkness hits all my paranormal hot buttons. Funny, suspenseful and sexual chemistry that makes you squirm in your seat. This author always manages to surprise on how she can keep a series fresh.
