Books I've read this week - Ecstasy

Ecstasy by Jacquelyn Frank ©2009
I won this from Donna at Fantasy Dreamer’s Ramblings. Thanks again Donna!

From the book cover: “At one with the darkness, the mysterious Shadowdwellers must live as far from light-loving humans as possible in order to survive. Yet one damaged human woman will tempt the man behind the Shadowdweller throne into a dangerour desire…..

Among the Shadowdwellers, Trace holds power that some are willing to kill for. Without a stranger’s aid, one rival would surely have succeeded, but Trace’s brush with death is less surprising to him than his reaction to the beautiful, fragile human who heals him. By rights, Trae should hardly even register Ashla’s existence within the realm of Shadowscape, but instead he is drawn to everything about her – her innocence, her courage, and her lush, sensual heat….

After a terrifying car crash, Ashla Townsend wakes up to find that the bustling New York she knew is now eerie and desolate. Just when she’s convinced she’s alone, Ashla is confronted by a dark warrior who draws her deeper into a world she never knew existed. The bond between Ashla and Trace is a mystery to both, but searching for answers will mean confronting long-hidden secrets, and uncovering a threat that could destroy everything Trace holds precious…”

If you like a paranormal romance with intrigue and good, erotic sex, then this is a book for you I read a lot of Stephen King and Dean Koontz-type paranormal stories but not too many romances. I have to say this one was very interesting and full of a different type of adventure and very sensual lovemaking. Ms. Frank has a way with words that pulls the reader into her story. I did find it somewhat difficult to imagine a world without light or one where the people must only move from shadow to shadow in order to survive and that was always in the back of my mind as I read the story.
