New York Times bestselling sensation Gena Showalter enthralls with a dark, tantalizing world of humans, otherworlders, powers beyond imagining, and a seductive vampire undone by his insatiable hunger for one woman. . . .

Growing up poor on New Chicago's meanest streets, Ava Sans had two options: be the predator or be the prey. No contest. Now, working for Alien Investigation and Removal, she's been ordered to capture the biggest, baddest warrior of all--a vampire too beautiful to be real, with the abilityto manipulate time. Once the leader of the entire vampire army, McKell has been deemed savage and unstable, spurned even by his own kind.

To McKell, humans should be nothing more than sustenance. Yet the petite, golden-skinned Ava is a fascinating contradiction--vicious yet witty, strong yet vulnerable, lethal but fiercely loyal. Against his better judgment, McKell craves that loyalty, and much more. When the chase leads to seduction, McKell and Ava will race to discover the truth about his past. But the answers will come at a price, even for a woman who thought she had nothing left to lose. . . .

Mckell was introduced in another book and got a bum deal. I was hoping he would be in another book. He deserves some happiness. This book has an unexpected outcome and leaves you wanted for more. I was sorry to see it end. Hopefully we will see more of them together in action in the future. The recommend the Alien Huntress series.

Ecstasy in Darkness is a rip-roaring, laugh out loud a minute wild ride that only Gena Showalter can write. This latest in her Alien Huntress series is a world filled with alien species, vampires and warrior women who are trying to save the world. A book like this is perfect for readers who enjoy a combination of sci-fi paranormal with smoldering love scenes that if they could, have steam rising from them.

Ava Sans and her best friend, Noelle, are agents in training for Alien Investigation and Removal (AIR). The must complete a mission by themselves. Leader Mia Snow sends them to retrieve Victor McKell. He is a vampire, he was banished from their caves below earth in the last book. There is an alien queen infesting humans with a cannibalism disease. The only thing that cures it is vampire blood. NO one has been able to being Mckell in. Ava makes a deal with Mckell, he wants her to help him talk to other vampires to figure out how they survive topside. In the meantime Mckell also helps AIR with the evil queen.

I loved each and every scene that McKell and Ava are in. Their chemistry is off the charts. Their dialogue is full of snarky, witty and downright funny remarks, McKell doesn’t know what to make of it when he finds himself all out of sorts in regards to Ava. His alpha, possessive tendencies toward his spunky woman are full of wonderful silliness and endearing playfulness. Ava has always felt less than worthy, and when McKell enters the picture, his desire and respect for her makes her feel on top of the world. And Ava's friendship with Noelle is wonderful as well. These are two women who would die for one another if they had to. Another wonderful read from Gena Showalter.
