My Selection for Waiting on Wednesday: A Beautiful Dark by Jocelyn Davies

I'm happy to be a part of one of most fun and informative memes. Waiting on Wednesday, started by Jill at Breaking the Spine is the weekly event in which we share what books we're anxiously awaiting! This week, I'm back in the paranormal camp...tee hee hee...I can't wait to check out A Beautiful Dark by Jocelyn Davies. It's her first novel and it looks quite intriguing. Let's see what it's about...

Skye never questioned the story of her life. Her Aunt Jo adopted her after the death of her parents when she was just a child, and together they flip through memories the way some people flip through photo albums.
She never questioned if the stories were true. 

Until the night of her 17th birthday, when the arrival of two strangers intrudes on her cozy life. Polar opposites, like fire and ice, Asher is dark and wild, while Devin is fair, cold, and aloof. Skye has no idea what they want—only that their presence coincides with the beginning of some shockingly strange events. Events that Skye, if she dares to think it, might be responsible for causing. 

High up in the mountains of Boulder, Colorado, Skye finds herself caught in the middle of an ancient battle, one that began untold millennia ago. Torn between unpredictable Asher, whom she loves, and the infuriating Devin, who she can’t stay away from, her fate is murky as a starless night. And as the secrets of her true identity are revealed, Skye realizes that her destiny may reside in the Heavens—or somewhere darker.

The first thing that caught my eye was the gorgeous cover. It begs the question: what is this about?! The main character also shares the same name as the protagonist in the novel I'm working on: Skye. So, I have somewhat of a personal interest here...lol...It sounds deep and lush and amazing...If you all visit me enough, you know I'm a romance/love junkie...lol...A Beautiful Dark seems to fit the bill. I just love a deeply conflicted romance. Yum! I just wish I didn't have to wait so long for it to come out *sigh*.

What about you? Will you be joining me in digging into a romance that's dark and edgy?

  4. Yes, I'm totally excited about this one. I love the cover and I'm easily swayed by a storyline that features a love triangle. In addition to that, I also like underused settings. Go Boulder, CO!
