State of Ecstasy

[SUMMARY] [REVIEWS] [COMMENTS] [INTERVIEW] [VIDEO]
Twenty-six year-old Daphne Cohen's life is closed off, hiding behind an introverted personality to keep from expressing her true self and exploring the depths of what she truly desires. With very few friends and having only been in one sort of intimate relationship, she believes guy number three is the one…until she finds out he's been sleeping around. Fleeing to Martinique to do some soul searching, she meets her future: Wolfe LaCasse, a devastatingly handsome and sensuous Creole. He takes her on a passionate journey where the fire burns too hot for Daphne, and she flees the island. The problem is, she can't forget the state of ecstasy she experienced in Wolfe's arms. Can she risk everything and, for the first time in her life, follow her heart and return to the island?
Spinning a fresh twist on the romance genre, Ju Ephraime's Daphne is in the driver's seat and in full control to make the decisions that will change her forever. Daphne's developed sexuality and power, bridges a gap between the classic and the contemporary with subtle nuances, sparkling insights, and a provocative, sensuous narrative style.
Reminiscent of the works of Lisa Kleypas and Stephanie Laurens, Ms. Ephraime's rich emotional landscape delivers an achingly accessible complexity that makes State of Ecstasy steamy, provocative, and fresh, and its author a forceful new voice who brings an entirely new level of heat to the genre.
