From time to time, I’m featuring area writer’s on my blog who have exciting news to share…
It’s precisely 7:22 p.m. ET, the sun has just set in the Eastern Time zone, and it’s starting to get dark. What a perfect time to reveal the cover of Race the Darkness, a dark, gritty, and emotional romantic suspense novel by a fantastic Northeast Ohio debut author Abbie Roads!
Abbie is a Golden Heart finalist (the largest romance novel contest for unpublished authors–being a finalist is a big deal) and is a member of my writing group, the Northeast Ohio Romance Writer’s Association. Her work as a mental health counselor gives her chilling insights, which play out in her writing. This book, which is on my must read list, is the first book in her Fatal Dreams series and will be released Oct. 4. Can’t wait to get my copy and thought I would also share the cover and description with all of you.
Cursed with a terrible gift
Criminal investigator Xander Stone doesn’t have to question you—he can hear your thoughts. Scarred by lightning, burdened with a power that gives him no peace, Xander struggles to maintain his sanity against the voice that haunts him day and night—the voice of a woman begging him to save her.
That threatens to engulf them…
Isleen Walker has long since given up hope of escape from the nightmare of captivity and torture that is draining her life, her mind, and her soul. Except…there is the man in her feverish dreams, the strangely beautiful man who beckons her to freedom and wholeness. And when he comes, if he comes, it will take all their combined fury and faith to overcome a madman bent on fulfilling a deadly prophecy.
Here’s what Abbie has to say about this novel:
I wrote Race the Darkness from start to finish three different times, with three different story lines, and with three different titles! The only thing that ever remained the same between the versions was Xander and Isleen. I believed in them and the story they wanted to tell. I hope you love reading about their tragedies and triumphs as much as I enjoyed writing them… All three times! And isn’t the cover amazing, beautiful, gorgeous? I cried the first time I saw it! It made all the hard work to get this book to you worth it!
