We’ve got a treat for you today! Not to be confused with the Tellest novella of the same name, Awake by Lana Moon treads its own awesome path. The talented Moon has been writing for over a decade, and her own personal experience with “forgotten” places in Missouri and Illinois led to her become an incredible force when it comes to horror and fantasy. And Awake in particular just oozes that eerie dark awesomeness.
After losing her family to a tornado, the only thing that can help guilt-ridden Eve Cleary find peace is a nightmare come to life: a dangerous incubus whose masterful caresses have the power to grant her deepest desires.
Tormented by nightmares since the death of her family in a devastating tornado, Eve has returned to her Missouri hometown to face her painful past. There, in her aunt’s long-abandoned cottage, she meets an unlikely healer: a gorgeous incubus on the prowl for a mate. Victor offers Eve innocent comfort and soothing caresses, but his demonic nature won’t long be denied.
For thousands of years, Victor has preyed on women’s hidden desires while his own longings have gone unfulfilled. Now, at last, he’s met the woman of his dreams. But while their passion is quick to ignite, their future is far from certain. Eve’s feelings of guilt and Victor’s own dark deeds still haunt them. If Eve gives him her body yet withholds her trust, an enemy from Victor’s past could end their love—and him—forever.
Again, Lana Moon is an uncanny force in dark fantasy. If that’s up your alley, it really would serve you well to look at her work. She has a wonderful website that you could investigate. Or if you just want to get right down to business, Awake is available on Amazon, here.
