XanderLove makes you weak and vulnerable. He vowed long ago to never feel that way again. But when he rescues a woman who’s been held hostage, she challenges all his beliefs. The attraction is staggering. The urge to keep her near him, to keep her safe, is overwhelming. No matter how hard he tries, he can’t resist her. And he’s not sure he wants to because deep down he knows he’s the only one who can protect her.
IsleenThere's only one reason she survived the past eight years of torture and starvation. Her nightly dreams of him: The man who finally rescues her. But now that she’s safe, the outside world no longer makes sense, and she’s questioning her own sanity. Is she a bad person? Was humanity better off when she was locked away? The only thing she knows for sure is that she feels secure with him. But what if he’s in danger because of her?
No one is safe. Everyone is at risk. Who will survive? Who will die?Only fate can decide.
*Previously published under the title Race the Darkness

Dangerous Dreams is a rerelease of a previous Abbie Roads book, Race the Darkness. I didn’t know that when I picked it up initially, but I kept thinking “wow, this is just like another book of hers…” and I was right! I did really enjoy Race the Darkness. I don’t know that anything has really been changed-it has been a while since I read it.

The story has a dark vibe, both in its content and its tone. There is also a bit of paranormal since Xander gets his powers after being struck by lightning. Isleen is in a horrible situation and she dreams of Xander. Once he rescues her, they are determined to stick together. But, since nothing in their life has been easy, life after being rescued isn’t easy either. There is plenty of nail biting suspense in this one. Readers who aren’t afraid of some darker themes (thrillers) but still want romance will enjoy Dangerous Dream.



authors like Toni Anderson, Laura Griffin, Christina Dodd…then you will probably like Dangerous Dreams!

About Abbie Roads

Seven Things about Abbie Roads:

1.  She loves Snicker Parfaits. Gotta start with what’s most important, right?

2. She writes dark emotional books featuring damaged characters, but always gives her hero and heroine a happy ending… after torturing them for three hundred pages.

3. By day she’s a mental health counselor known for her blunt, honest style of therapy. At night she burns up the keyboard. Well… Burn might be too strong a word. She at least sits with her hands poised over the keyboard, waiting for inspiration to strike. And when it does—the keyboard might get a little warm.

4.  She can’t stand it when people drive slowly in the passing lane. Just saying. That’s major annoying. Right?

5.  She loves taking pictures of things she thinks are pretty.

6.  She’s represented by Michelle Grajkowski of 3 Seas Literary.

7.  Her first book RACE THE DARKNESS was a Publishers Weekly Top 10 Pick for Fall.
