Publisher: Entangled Teen Crave
Fate changer Daisy Layne is nervous about searching Europe for a firstborn son doomed to die on his eighteenth birthday. But she’s the only one who can save him. No pressure or anything. She needs the help of guide Andrei Vasile, who she’s been talking to online for two years. Still, meeting him in person…that’s a whole different story.
Andrei is determined to keep Daisy safe, even if touching her could kill him. At least, that’s what his family has told him about fate changers like Daisy. She’s strong and beautiful, and it’s his job to keep her alive. Unfortunately, what she doesn’t know could kill her.
Save a life. End a curse. And never, ever get too close...
“I don’t want anyone but you,” he said. And he meant it. In the past, he might have said that to win a girl over. But not Daisy. With her, it was real.
I’m so screwed. Why did I say that? I’m going to scare her off.
She untwined her fingers from his. “What does that mean?”
“Uh.” What did that mean? Shit. Did he want that? He did. Of course, he did. “I guess a relationship?”
She blurted out a laugh.
Her smile slipped from her face. “You’re serious?”
“Yeah, I am.” He didn’t like where this was going.
“Oh.” She glanced over at Agnes and Joost. They were too busy trying to get a lifesaver off the wall to notice them.
“Daisy?” He grasped her hands again.
She looked at him. “I’m sorry. You just took me by surprise. Can we not define anything right now? I mean, obviously, I want you. I just think it’s a little too fast.”
“You want me?” He released a long breath. That was a relief. He could wait until she was on the same page as him.
“Yes.” She stared at their hands. “We’re just caught up, you know, in all this stuff. When we’re in our normal lives, it could be different. We could be different. I guess, what I mean is let’s wait and see. Give it time.”
He released her hands. She couldn’t look him in the eyes. Was she worried his feelings were hurt? Right then, he was numb. All the excitement he felt earlier was gone. But he didn’t want her to see that. Didn’t want to put any more strain on her. He forced his best smile and said, “Okay. We’ll wait and see.”
The night sure did take an unsuspected turn, and he wasn’t sure where he’d end up. Hopefully, wherever it was, his heart wouldn’t end up at the bottom of a ditch bludgeoned to death.
Brenda Drake grew up the youngest of three children, an Air Force brat, and the continual new kid at school. Her fondest memories growing up is of her eccentric, Irish grandmother's animated tales, which gave her a strong love for storytelling. With kids of all ages populating Brenda's world, it was only fitting that she would choose to write stories with a bend toward the fantastical for both younger readers and the young at heart. And because she married her prince charming, there's always a romance warming the pages. Her favorite books are The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis, Kings Row by Henry Bellamann, and Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins. When she's not writing, she hosts workshops and contests for writers such as Pitch Wars and Pitch Madness on her blog, and holds Twitter pitch parties on the hashtag, #PitMad. In her free time, Brenda enjoys hanging out with her family, haunting libraries, bookstores, and coffee shops, or just reading someplace quiet and not at all exotic (much to her disappointment).
