Today is the release of Dark Daze, by Ava Delany..
Dark Daze is a paranormal romance novel about danger and love after a time of change. The end of days. The end of the Mayan calendar.
On Dec 21, 2012, at 2:12pm, the sky went dark all over the world, and people’s lives changed in ways they feared to admit. Thousands died in accidents while others claimed to have seen demons and found themselves locked up in their local psychiatric ward. Scientists explained away the phenomenon, and things seemed to return to normal.
After a decade of trying to conceal a power she never expected or wanted, Brie Duval was used to being alone. When life—or more appropriately, a meddling friend, sends her on a blind date with Ian Connors, she discovers she wasn’t the only person to gain powers that day.
They find themselves falling in love while on the run from a creature with eyes that suck in light and a force that controls their wills, but Brie can’t help but fear their love is a side effect of the menace. In order to survive, they must put aside their fears and embrace the gifts they’ve fought so hard to deny.
Would you like a little kiss?
Brie hoped her face didn’t show the sudden and almost unexpected thoughts running through her mind. How would his strong arms feel, pulling her close? Would his lips be as soft and warm as they looked?
She picked up a napkin and fanned her warming cheeks. What was wrong with her? She’d never had thoughts like this about a relative stranger before Ian had walked through the door. Except perhaps for in her dream, or vision, or whatever it had been. Of course, she’d never before had this sense of having known someone she couldn’t possibly know.
It wasn’t in her nature to be that forward but now she wanted to be. She wanted to stand up, straddle his lap, and kiss him hard. The draw was almost more than she could bear.
He leaned in, placed a knuckle beneath her chin, and pulled her mouth up. He rubbed his lips across hers in a gentle caress. For a moment, they shared a breath, in and out. Then he deepened the kiss. His tongue met hers in gentle exploration, and desire made her head reel. Something about him called to her like no man ever had before—a familiarity that made her wrap her arms around his neck and sigh.
He ran his hands up and down her back. The gentle caress lit a fire inside her. A simple kiss shouldn’t have such power.
