Romance Suspense | Romance Paranormal

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.

A gift 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.

Re: Race the Darkness

my worst nightmare is anything happening to those I love.
(Darci Paice 6:48pm October 12, 2016)

Hi Darci!

I know! Those are the absolute worst of the worst! Those are also the
ones that when I wake up I am SO GRATEFUL that it was just a dream!
Abbie Roads 8:42pm October 12, 2016)

My worst nightmare would be being kidnapped, beaten and
then killed.
Ria Arnold 9:23pm October 12, 2016)

In today's world, so many things can happen in a blink of an
eye. My worst nightmare would be not to be able to take care
of or provide for myself.
Cynthia Netherton 9:34pm October 12, 2016)

I have this dream every few months. The location changes but I am always
running from something. Not sure if human or animal but something is
chasing me. I always wake up feeling terrified, sweating, panting and
freaked the heck out....
Sandra McMahon 9:39pm October 12, 2016)

Ria--That sounds horrible. I've been there--in my dreams.
Abbie Roads 9:59pm October 12, 2016)

Cynthia--I know. Today's world seems so scarier than ever! But I'm with
you--not being able to take care of myself or provide for my basic
needs--the helplessness of that is just awful!
Abbie Roads 10:00pm October 12, 2016)

Sandra--I used to have that being-chased dream all the time. I've been
chased by men, women, bears, wolves, tigers, snakes... In my
nightmares snakes are super fast! Yikes!
Abbie Roads 10:03pm October 12, 2016)

Something seriously bad happening to my son. I had severe
anxiety when he was little and I would have panic attacks when
I would take home out. A simple trip to the playground was a
huge ordeal. He's almost 12 now and I still have a hard time
letting him go places without me, but I'm working through it
and this summer he went to Boy Scout Camp for 7 days without
me & we both survived LOL.
Michelle VanDaley 2:03am October 13, 2016)

My worst nightmare is to lose those that I care about.
Tanja Dancy 5:20am October 13, 2016)

Being raped again.
Bonnie James 5:40am October 13, 2016)

Michelle--It's so hard to not be scared to death that something will
happen to your child. Especially when something 'did' happen to your
child. But what a victory that he went to camp for 7 days without you!
Abbie Roads 8:41am October 13, 2016)

Tanja--I completely agree. I've even had nightmares abut something
happening to my dogs!
Abbie Roads 8:42am October 13, 2016)

Bonnie-- It takes courage to put that out there. And you did. You are a
Abbie Roads 8:45am October 13, 2016)

My worst nightmare is to become extremely ill.
Sharon Berger 2:01pm October 13, 2016)

I think my worst nightmare would be having something happening to a loved one and not being able to prevent it or stop it.
Robin McKay 6:02pm October 13, 2016)

Sharon--I totally agree. It's hard not take our health for granted when its
just been something that's always there.
Abbie Roads 9:45pm October 13, 2016)

Robin--I agree. I totally agree!
Abbie Roads 9:46pm October 13, 2016)

being burned alived
Jennifer Beck 11:47am October 14, 2016)

Jennifer--Oh... That one is awful.
Abbie Roads 10:08pm October 14, 2016)

I've lived through mine when I was 17 and someone broke into our house and tried
to rape me. When I woke with his hand on my mouth I had a moment of panic
before my fight kicked in and I fought him and made enough noise to wake my
parents and then he ran. But that was 28 years ago and I've work though it.
Valerie Miller 10:26pm October 15, 2016)

My worst nightmare is dying alone.
Kathleen Gardiner 1:12am October 17, 2016)

My worst nightmare is having cancer.
Anna Speed 12:01pm October 17, 2016)

being a car accident
Ann Unger 6:36pm October 17, 2016)

Valerie--Girl you're fighter and a survivor!
Abbie Roads 10:19pm October 19, 2016)

Elaine--Ugh... That happens to too many children. I'm so glad you got
out of it!
Abbie Roads 10:20pm October 19, 2016)

Anna--That is an awful one. To feel like your body is betraying you by
growing a cancer... I can't even imagine.
Abbie Roads 10:21pm October 19, 2016)

Ann--I'm with you on the car accident. I was just in a pretty back
accident in May. One that everyone--including myself--was surprised I
walked away from uninjured. I had some severe anxiety around being in
the car for a number of months. But I'm over it now.
Abbie Roads 10:24pm October 19, 2016)

My worst nightmare is losing someone I love.
Bonnie H 10:17am October 25, 2016)

That is the worst thing ever. I was in a roll over accident
when I was only 19. No seat belts back then. I was thrown
out and the car landed next to me.
