Out of darkness and danger...
You can’t hide your secrets from Lathan Montgomery—he can read your darkest memories. And while his special abilities are invaluable in the FBI’s hunt for a serial killer, he has no way to avoid the pain that brings him. Until he is drawn to courageous, down-on-her-luck Evanee Brown and finds himself able to offer her something he’s never offered another human being: himself.
Dawns a unique and powerful love
Nightmares are nothing new to Evanee Brown. But once she meets Lathan, they plummet into the realm of the macabre. Murder victims are reaching from beyond the grave to give Evanee evidence that could help Lathan bring a terrifying killer to justice. Together, they could forge an indomitable partnership to thwart violence, abuse, and death—if they survive the forces that seek to tear them apart.
Hunt the Dawn is book 2 in the duet, but you really can read it as a stand alone. Xander and Isleen from book 1 appear a couple times, but you don’t need to know their story. I will say, this book is rife with triggers so read at your own risk.
Evanee has had a horrible life. She has been abused and raped by her stepbrother and is desperately trying to get away from the family. She has to work at a sleazy truck stop and live in a sleazier motel. She runs into Lathan one evening while being attacked by her stepbrother, Junior. Lathan saves her and there is an instant pull to her.
Hunt the Dawn has elements of paranormal, supernatural, and suspense. Lathan and Evanee both have supernatural powers and there is a bit of paranormal to their relationship as well. This is a non-stop story as well. As you are trying to figure out the strange things happening to Lathan and Evanee, there are also murders and a crazy psychopathic killer on the loose. The plot certainly keeps you wondering how all of it will tie together and how on earth it will all play out. Roads does a wonderful job of keeping you on your toes. You have to read this book carefully or you will be left behind!
