State of Ecstasy (First in the LaCasses series)  by julia e antoine

Brief Synopsis:

Ju Ephraime finds passion on the lush island of Martinique in this steamy romance.

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.

LOVING Therèse (Second in the LaCasses series)  by julia e antoine

Brief Synopsis:

Step into a world of jealousy, intrigue and passion as Ju Ephraime takes us to the French Caribbean island of Martinique, where the men are passionate and the women equally so. Where passion for breakfast is the rule rather than the exception…

Loving Therese is about an intensely passionate English woman, who refused to follow convention and chose instead to select her man from the natives of the French Caribbean island of Martinique, Foxx LaCasse. When she began receiving threatening notes, asking her to stay away from him, Therese fled back to her home in England, without giving Foxx an explanation. Now two years later, she’s back on the island, trying to pick up from where they’d left off, but Foxx was having none of it. He had one goal in mind; to have his way with her, and discard her, as she had him, two years ago. But when he finally reunites with his beautiful, passionate, elusive target, he finds himself offering his protection and his heart.

Filled with Ju Ephraime’s trademark sensuality, characters you love to hate and men you wish to love, Loving Therese will have you enthralled with its unexpected plots and refreshing style, as these two destined lovers, recaptured and embraced their love.
