First Rapture by Alexandra Ivy

First Rapture
by Alexandra Ivy

FROM NEW YORK TIMES AND USA TODAY BESTSELLER the first book in a new erotic series.
FIRST RAPTURE by Alexandra Ivy

Madison Philips has only one reason to return to Las Vegas: Luc Angeli. The tall, dark bad boy took her virginity on her eighteenth birthday and then walked away, now she’s back, and ready for revenge. Luc Angeli spent his youth trying to earn the approval of his philandering father. Now he’s his own man, but there’s still something missing from his life. He doesn’t know what it is until he catches sight of Madison across a balcony. Suddenly he knows this woman is what he’s been searching for, and this time he’s not walking away.
Approximately: 20,000 words 

~*~ My Review~*~ 
I really enjoyed Maddy and Luc's story, I will readily and happily read anything Alexandra Ivy writes from now on! 

 I was not expecting how intense this short story would be and I loved how Alexandra hit perfectly on what it would feel like to have what happened to Maddy happen to them. 

Luc was sweet and wonderfully reformed!  I wish it would have been just a tad longer so that the changed didn't feel so abrupt from hating (even though it was a mock type of hate) to loving. 
Good story a total 5 star steamy romance!

Author Bio:

I’m not exactly sure when I fell in love with books.  Probably on my mother’s knee listening to her read Dr. Seuss to me.  I do remember that I was barely old enough to cross the street by myself when I discovered the delights of the local library.
Could anything be more wonderful than spending summer days surrounded by stacks of Nancy Drew mysteries?  Over the years I fell in love with Victoria Holt, Jane Austen, Agatha Christie, and J.R.R. Tolkien just to name a few.  I read poetry, essays, biographies, and plays.  In fact, I read anything I could get my hands on. 

Years later (no, I’m not admitting how many) I’m still an avid reader, and my tastes are still as varied as they were in my youth, which I suppose helps to explain why I enjoy writing regency historicals under the name of Deborah Raleigh, as well as my contemporary paranormals as Alexandra Ivy.
For now that is enough to keep me busy, but who knows what the future might hold!

I do have a few other loves in my life besides reading and writing, the most important being my unbelievably patient husband, David, and my two sons, Chance and Alexander.  Without their constant support and belief in me, I never could have been able to follow my dreams.  They are truly my heroes.
