Cover Reveal & Excerpt: Race the Darkness by Abbie Roads

It’s precisely 7:22 pm ET, the sun has just set in the Eastern Time zone, and it’s starting to get dark.

We are excited to reveal the cover of Race the Darkness, a dark, gritty, emotional and sexy romantic suspense novel by debut author Abbie Roads!

Race the Darkness

 

First in a gripping paranormal romantic suspense duo by a Golden Heart finalist debut author whose clinical work gives her chilling insights…

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.

A special note from the author

Dear Readers,

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!

An excerpt from Race the Darkness

No fucking way was he going to die running. He stopped, turned and faced the truck barreling toward them. The tires ate up the ground at an indecent rate. He clutched Isleen tighter to his chest. For her sake, he wanted it to be a quick death. No more lingering. No more pain.

That thought infuriated him. None of this was right. They shouldn’t be on the verge of death. Again.

The truck kept coming—twenty-five feet.

Everything slowed, happened as if through the quicksand of time. A white dandelion floaty meandered on the breeze directly between them and the truck. His heart no longer ran a staccato rhythm. Duh…duhm. Pause. Duh…duhm. Pause.

His life didn’t flash before his eyes. The future did. Isleen’s future. In an ethereal dream beyond time, her skin was gilded by firelight, her eyes void of sadness and fear, her body whole and healthy. She smiled, an expression so full of warmth and tenderness and undiluted joy that it plunked itself down inside his heart and wouldn’t leave.

He ached to create that kind of smile on her face, but their lives were over and it all could’ve gone so differently if he’d only listened to her, believed in her, found her years before now.

Book Review: An Unforgivable Love Story by BL Berry

An Unforgivable Love StoryAn Unforgivable Love Story by B.L. Berry
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5+++ stars

Wow.

Wow, wow, wow!

As many others have suggested, it’s best to go in to An Unforgivable Love Story blind. The blurb is short and vague for good reason. I requested this ARC as an opportunity to experience a new-to-me author. As evidenced by my rating and review, I wasn’t disappointed! On the contrary, I’m truly blown away by the author’s talent and the “unforgivable” love story she’s crafted.

Be warned that this isn’t a paint-by-number, predictable romance. Readers’ allegiance and sympathies will be tested. Readers will experience interesting perspectives, and will get a real sense of more than one character: what makes them tick, their virtues and vices, what motivations drive their actions forward.

What you can expect from this read:
An incredibly engaging story.
Brilliant, visceral, emotive writing.
Content that raises complex questions.
Chapter openings that seize you by the collar.
A striking ending that offers closure…as much as it raises even more questions.

I can’t recommend this one enough!
