Summary: (from goodreads) The Alien Huntress series continues as bestselling sensation Gena Showalter brings us Ecstasy in Darkness, a tantalizing tale about a vampire undone by his insatiable hunger for one woman. 

Growing up in New Chicago, Ava Sans had two options: be the predator or be the prey. No contest. But now that she's hunting the baddest warrior of all-a vampire with the ability to manipulate time-she's rethinking her choice...and contemplating the pleasures of surrender.

To McKell, humans should be nothing more than sustenance, but the petite, golden-skinned Ava whets his appetite in other ways. The battle of wills has begun. But even as the chase leads to seduction, it also leads to danger...and a darkness that could doom them both forever.

5th book in the series of Alien Huntress and my first but even though I had not read the previous books, I did not feel that I was missing out. The way this book is written you can fall into the history line without any problems. But don't get me wrong, I like the way this author writes and this gives me a reason to read the rest of the books in the series. I am a fan of Showalter's other series as well.

The main characters are not the typical characters, she is a strong willed, hard headed heroine that knows which buttons to press to make the very sexy, good looking and very possessive hero do her will. Due to her insecurities created by her past and his rocky past, they both had the wrong reasons to be with each other but that soon changes when they realize that they are made for each other.

Great Fantasy romance, sassy, funny and very sexy (very explicit), definitely a must read.
