Race the Darkness by Abbie Roads

Today is our first book club! We’re very excited at RJ to feature Abbie Roads’s RACE THE DARKNESS. The book received a 4.5 heart rating from our reviewer. According to SJ, “Dark romantic suspense mixed with the paranormal make for a book you can’t put down. It’s a fascinating read that explores the depths of the human will.”  You can read the entire review here. Now is your chance to learn more about Abbie and the book in a series of videos.

Sourcebooks generously donated copies of Abbie Roads’s RACE THE DARKNESS to ten lucky readers. Our readers came up with questions for Abbie, and you can learn more about the book directly from her!

Here’s the blurb:

Race the Darkness by Abbie Roads

Her voice haunts his thoughts; her whispers fill his days
But when he discovers the woman of his dreams is real
He’ll race the clock to save her before she’s lost to him forever

Scarred by lightning, burdened with a power that gives him no peace, criminal investigator Xander Stone struggles to maintain his sanity against the voice that haunts him day and night―the voice of a woman begging him to save her.

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, a strangely beautiful man who beckons her to freedom. 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.

Named a Publishers Weekly Top 10 Fall Romance for 2016!

    Yes … Lathan so ready to read more about him. I’m kinda bummed about k and c but I’ll keep my fingers crossed they get their person 🙂 I’m a mom to a kid who deals with sensory overload due to aspergers so I appreciate how you handled Zander and his issues with it.

      Hi Angi!

      I’m dying for Lathan’s book to get out there into the world. It’s just a week away and yet seems forever to me!

      Thanks for being a part of the Book Club!

    I loved this book! I can’t wait to read the second one. I wasn’t sure how the romance would tie in to such a dark theme–the heroine is kidnapped and tortured, after all. But Abbie handled it so well! I hate books where the heroine is traumatized then just forgets it all and falls in love. But this book wasn’t like that at all. Isleen (the heroine) had to go through and process her feelings. The love that happens was really natural and just pulled me deeper into the story.

      Hi Marie!

      “I hate books where the heroine is traumatized then just forgets it all and falls in love.” Me too! As a mental health counselor it feels so in-authentic to me.

      I’m glad you enjoyed the book!
