About Abbie Roads

Abbie Roads loves Snickers Parfaits and acrylic pour painting. It’s her new obsession. The pour painting. Not the parfaits. Though the parfaits would qualify as an obsession too. She spends her days a mental health counselor always looking on the brightside, but at night she likes to write dark and dangerous things—with kissing and sexy times. She loves reading inspirational quotes and stories about serial killers. She is married to her favorite fellow and they have two cranky old rescue dogs that are not spoiled. Not at all. Okay. Maybe a little. Alright, the dogs are terribly spoiled, but they do give lots of cuddles and kisses in return.

Happy October! Here’s a haunted tale from yours truly. 👻

Happy October!

My favorite month of the year! My birthday is October 28th and Halloween follows shortly after, so can’t beat that. 😉 Not to mention I’m on vacation starting this Friday night. YAY!

A few personal notes: I recently signed a contract with an amazing practice in New England and I’M SO EXCITED (and terrified)! Life is definitely going to get interesting next July, LOL, but I’m looking forward to getting out there and doing my thing. Also, I’ll finally be getting back to first round edits on VERMILION LIES so you’ll have it on time in the Spring.

Have you watched THE HAUNTING OF HILL HOUSE on Netflix? I am absolutely loving it so far (currently three episodes in), so I figured I’d share my own (TRUE LIFE) haunted house story for your reading pleasure. 😀


A Haunting in Southeastern Massachusetts

So I grew up in a haunted house as a child.

And I thought it was completely normal.

My family moved into a little cape in southeastern Massachusetts (in the same city where the infamous Lizzie Borden hacked her parents to death) when I was around five years old. They were quite excited to finally have their own home after immigrating from the Azores, Portugal and apartment hopping since I’d been born. The house wasn’t in the greatest condition, but my dad planned to renovate both the interior and exterior over the next few years.

Too bad he couldn’t get rid of the ghosts!

Let me get one thing out in the open first: I’m not super sensitive to the paranormal (certainly not like my sister, who experienced far more in this house than I). Since my family moved out of this house when I was in high school, I’ve literally never experienced another supernatural occurrence. The ghostly presences in this home were so strong even others sensed it. I do think there’s a gradation when it comes to these things, but I’m no expert, so that’s that.

It all started with the persistent pacing. I didn’t notice it at first, since my sister and I were kids running around making noise all day, but it was most obvious at night—someone kept walking up and down the stairs. The house was over a hundred years old, and yes it was creaky and constantly settling, but these sounds were just a little too rhythmic. If I was downstairs, I could hear people walking around upstairs when no one was up there. It was constant, back and forth, then it would stop for a period of time. My mom kept pawning it off as an old house, but I wasn’t convinced.

Also, the entire upper level of the house was always cold, especially the upstairs bathroom, no matter the time of year. One of my cousins (also only a child at the time) would completely flip out if he was left alone upstairs, screaming about the evil up there. Even though I didn’t think my ghosts were evil, I knew they were real, although I poked fun at him a little.

My sister and I would often hear voices at night. We both shared the same room and sometimes someone would whisper right along with us. We would both shut up immediately, holding our breaths and listening hard. The voices weren’t loud at all, barely audible really, and usually in different languages we couldn’t understand. One night, we heard a baby persistently crying. It terrified my sister so much, she dragged my mom into the room, and yes, even my mother heard it. She checked all the windows, and although it was the middle of winter, she told us it came from a neighbor’s house down the street. Bullshit! But she seemed entirely unsettled before she went back to bed.

Our ghostly residents liked to play tricks on us, too. Again, this all happened on the upper floor, where the blinds randomly dropped with a terrifying crack. This happened constantly. My mom kept saying it was because the blinds were old, but c’mon, really?! I think not. I used to sit at my computer, listening to a cassette tape on the radio, when suddenly it would shut off. I would hit play again and literally stare at it, waiting. Right before my eyes, the “stop” button was pushed, as if by an invisible hand. I guess my spectral roommates didn’t care for the music!

What else? My father (a believer) later told me he once heard a tremendous crash downstairs one night, as if someone had knocked over the hutch filled with glasses and porcelain dishes. Terrified, he went downstairs to investigate, thinking someone had broken into the house. To his relief, he found nothing—everything was in its place and all was silent. He was positive he hadn’t imagined it, and it still stumps him until this day.

And last, but certainly not least, when I was ten we adopted an adorable German Shepard named Legend. She was sweet, playful, and loved to run around the house, like any happy dog. However, she often leapt over the front gate (a standard chain-link fence) and would do so if riled up enough. She lived five glorious years before she one day leapt over that fence, chasing a motorcycle, and ended up struck by a car.

I was fifteen at the time and devastated. My dad was even moreso, because he loved Legend very much. There were a few days of silence after her death, but then we started to hear it.

Her running.

It would always happen randomly at sundown. We’d be sitting downstairs in the basement, watching TV or playing video games, when a loud gallop would suddenly resonate all around the house from outside. The noise was thunderous in the basement, and it sounded just like Legend running circles around the perimeter–the way she used to when she was alive and well. This went on for weeks. My dad was stunned and a little scared, but soon it stopped. Oddly enough, my mom never experienced it.

My sister also had an incident with the ghostly Legend, where she was folding laundry upstairs (where else?) and sensed something four-legged racing at her. When she looked up, something pushed her, like a dog’s front paws and she fell back. Of course, nothing was there, but she sought me out, terrified and in tears. At first, I didn’t believe her—none of us had ever been physically touched by anything preternatural in the house. But her tears quickly convinced me otherwise—why would she lie about something like that?

So that’s a quick overview of my haunted house experience (although looking back at this blurb, maybe not so quick, ha!). My sister later saw a psychic medium who told her a young boy of about eight and an elderly woman were our ghostly residents. The elderly woman died in the upstairs bathroom (where else?) but the psychic wasn’t quite sure about the young boy. The medium believed the pacing and cold patches were thanks to grandma, while the blinds/radio stints were the little boy’s shenanigans. The medium apparently knew all about it, which is a curiosity in itself, but hell, I could believe that.

Why not? After living in this house, anything seems possible!

Book Spotlight: BANSHEE CRY by Raven Hudgins

My fellow SMP author, Raven Hudgins, has a new paranormal fantasy in her Death Callers series out today! Look at that cover! ❤ Happy Release Day, Raven!


BANSHEE CRY by Raven Hudgins

A year ago, Kaelin died. Now, banshee Aislin Gray will do anything to get him back, especially after hearing his voice in strange places. A trip to Hell? Sure. Aislin is not the only one looking for a soul from Hell, though. When Illium comes calling for his end of the deal, Aislin cannot refuse. With her sanity in the balance, Aislin will go through Hell and high water to find her love, even if he is not there.


Red and orange flames hissed and crackled, flicking out their tongues. Heat bore down from all sides. Everything around me burned and smoldered or burst into little spitfires at each turn of my head. Warmth spread up my skin.

I crinkled my nose. Even through the shirt I could smell singed hair and flesh. Pain seared up my feet. I jumped from foot to foot, the scent of burning rubber reaching my nose. Shit! My shoes were catching fire. Glancing down, I understood why.

The floor was made up of cracks and fissures like cooling lava, turning to magma. Yellow and orange slits hissed and sputtered. The ground was literally a minefield of fire and brimstone.

About The Author:

He’s out to set the world on fire and she’s the only one who can tame him. 

Blaze Knight has been through hell and back, but the nightmares aren’t over yet.

Five years after being maimed and tortured by vampires, Blaze is still picking up the pieces of his shattered life. As a genetically engineered hybrid mercenary, his mission is to protect what’s left of humanity. When his tormentors return to the Bronx gunning for Blaze’s blood, he’s forced to face the demons of his past. Hell-bent on revenge, he seeks the help of Valerie Medeiros, an NYPD detective who manages to steal his heart and save his life in more ways than one.

Motivated by her sister’s gruesome death, Valerie’s life goal is to bury every vampire in the ground where they belong. She has a hard time trusting anything with fangs, yet she falls headlong into Blaze’s life, a life full of darkness and horror she can’t even begin to fathom. The bodies are stacking up, but Valerie can’t let go of this hybrid, a beautiful monster filled with pain, rage, and passion unlike anything she’s ever known.

In a world where the line between good and evil is blurred, Blaze and Valerie will find danger at every turn, risking everything they’ve come to know and love, including one another.

His body hardened, his heart thudding in his chest. If that wasn’t enough, the stirring low in his belly sure as hell was.

He wanted her. Badly.

And so did the leech inside him.

“Blaze?” She peered at him with concern, taking a step closer.

He snapped out of it, realizing she’d asked him something he completely missed. “Huh?”

“Do you want some coffee? Something to drink? Eat?”

Yeah, you. He swallowed his saliva, straightening. “I should get going.”

“Oh.” She tried to hide her disappointment but she was bad at it. She wants you to stay. “Where are you heading?”

“Probably home for a few hours. Rest up a bit.” And drink about a gallon of blood while thinking of you. “You know.”

Valerie set what he assumed was the bag of coffee on the counter. She took another step toward him as a wave of jasmine swept over him, tugging him in places he shouldn’t be tugged.

He took a reflexive step back. Goddamn it, he was fine. He’d been fine right up until now. What the hell just happened?

Bad idea, Blaze. Bad fucking idea to starve yourself and walk into her apartment at dusk, with that body, and that face, and those eyes, and that smell . . .

“I’ll show myself out.”

She looked entirely confused as he turned away and headed for the door. Christ, he was acting like he’d never been in a woman’s apartment before, and God knew he’d been in many. But he’d never been this hungry around a woman before—at least, not in ordinary circumstances. And he wasn’t famous for his control.

He could feel it, that ugly darkness inside him spreading through his veins, making his lips and toes tingle. The leech opened its jaws and yawned, sucking down what was left of his civility. His gums tightened, squeezing his canines, urging them to grow, to elongate.

To spring free.


He needed to get out. Now.

“I’ll see you in the morning,” he ground out, his voice a near growl. “Good night, Val.”

He slammed the door behind him and managed to stagger ten paces down the hall before his limbs stopped working. Sweat dripped down the sides of his face and trickled down his spine. His hands shook and he clenched them into fists. He stood there, chest heaving, heart pounding, fangs pulsing, cock throbbing. He closed his eyes and lifted his face toward the ceiling, trying to wrestle the monster down, trying to beat it back into submission.

But it was already too late.

Through the din in his head, Blaze heard a door click behind him, disengaging from its frame. It creaked open slowly as jasmine slithered through the hallway toward him, rising up and striking at his senses, delivering the final blow. He craned his neck and spotted her.

Valerie’s blond hair fell in a curtain as she peeked out, looking for him. Her eyes widened when she found him, still standing in the corridor, and she quickly retreated.

“Sorry,” she murmured, but before she could close the door, he was already there, his hand propped against it.

She looked at him in pleasant surprise. “Blaze, I—”

He didn’t give her a chance to finish. He seized her mouth with his before he slammed the door behind him and locked it shut.

black-bulletBook Two: BLACK BULLET

He had everything under control until she crashed into his afterlife.

Fledgling vampire Jonathan Kerr has just met his match.

Not even his past life as a former Marine and FBI agent could prepare him for the battle against the monster inside him, struggling to take hold. After an old nemesis of the Senary surfaces in Brooklyn, unleashing chaos and terror in the battered borough, Jon sets out to take him down. Instead, he ends up with far more than he bargained for when he clashes with the beautiful half-vampire hybrid, Lawan Knight.

After escaping near death and suffering unspeakable horror at the hands of vampires, Lawan trusts no one, regardless of species. In between bouts of drunken stupor, her only goal is to exterminate all those who’ve wronged her, including every member of Jon’s vampire bloodline. But Jon’s soulful eyes and quick smile crawls under her skin, transforming her black and white world into a hazy shade of gray.

As the days rapidly grow darker, Jon and Lawan turn to one another, but their inner demons threaten to tear them apart. The only way either of them will survive is if they overcome their greatest fear—love.

Happy Summer, Loves!

I hope you’re all having a great start to summer! It’s been gorgeous here in Rhode Island. ❤ Lots of things happened this past month and I can’t wait to share them with you!

Southern Portugal Trip


Hubby and I had a recent 10 year wedding anniversary trip to Algarve, Portugal! It was absolutely GORGEOUS. The people were wonderful, the food was amazing, and the sites were stunning! The beaches along the south coast are literally some of the most beautiful I’ve ever laid eyes on. My favorite places were Sagres and Carvoeiro (definitely stay in Carvoeiro if you go). We also visited a few ossuaries (BONES) and Lisbon (CASTLES). I highly recommend visiting if you ever want to gallivant over to Europe!

Not to mention, I was so inspired that I plotted out an entire dark romantic fantasy version of The Little Mermaid for a future endeavor. 😉

Revisions on VERMILION LIES are complete


That’s right! YAY!

Hey loves! It’s almost spring!

We’ve been getting slammed with Nor’easters, bomb cyclones, blizzards, and what have you up here in the great Rhode Island and I’m definitely over winter already. Thank goodness I didn’t lose power, but the clean-up was definitely NOT fun! Not to mention the hospital where I work was pretty slammed, so it’s been pure madness here.

But guess what?!

I finally finished the first draft of Dax’s book, VERMILION LIES! Yay!


I’m making my way through revisions now, but I hope to have the manuscript to my editor in a few months. I can’t wait to share this story with you all! A badass superhero, a dark and sexy heroine, a forbidden love, vampires, chaos, DESTRUCTION! What more could you ask for?

SWEET SACRIFICE is a Night Owl Reviews Top Pick!

I’m so thrilled! Check it out:

L.D. Rose is a new author for me and WOW. She did such an amazing job of blending all the elements of romance. In “Sweet Sacrifice” you get your suspense and mythology as well as religion. The author kept me wanting to read more and more until my poor eyes just stopped focusing. Just when you think it can’t get better she throws in some paranormal battles, betrayals, and danger. Plus don’t forget the some smokin hot chemistry and a forbidden love. *Ding, Ding, Ding*. We have a WINNER with “Sweet Sacrifice”. 4.5/5 Stars! – Night Owl Reviews

Sexy young couple kissing and playing in bed.


The alarm on her phone jolted her awake.

Reaching over to the nightstand, Irene hit the damn thing but it continued to blare. She fumbled with the device and finally pushed the circular button at its base, silencing the cringe-worthy sound.

Her eyes drifted open to her sunlit room, bright and glaring. Squeezing her lids shut, she nestled back under the covers, her mind densely fogged with sleep.

Five more minutes, just five more minutes–

Then the events of last night poured into her gray matter, rapidly cutting through that fog with lucid swipes.

Arriving home from work. Sebastian at her door. Crying. Flying. Crying again. Making love. What he’d done to her on their dining room table, oh my God, she would never forget it–

She tensed, coiling tighter into herself. Listened. Tried to sense if his weight rested beside her. She was still naked, still stripped of everything before he’d laid her down here.

Silence. Not the slightest shift of sheets.

Had he vanished again? Was this yet another dream, another psychotic break for her to struggle through? Did she really want to turn around and find the bed empty, to see the honest-to-God proof of her insanity?

The alarm blared again, that grating tone setting her teeth on edge. She picked up her phone, ready to throw it, before a big hand grabbed it from her.

“You’re going to be pissed when it breaks,” Sebastian’s voice rumbled, sounding as if he’d gargled a pound of gravel.

Elation flooded her as she turned to find him peering up at the device, shutting it off with his marked hands. When the alarm ceased screaming, he dropped it on the mattress behind him and gave her a sleepy smile. Shifting toward her, he wrapped his arm around her waist and tucked her close to him, spooning his warm, equally naked body against hers and nuzzling her hair.

He took a deep breath and let it out. “You thought I was gone.”

He made it a statement, not a question. She swallowed past the growing lump in her throat and nodded, reveling in the sensation of his skin on hers, the relief that she hadn’t imagined it so profound it nearly brought her to tears-again.

Maybe she wasn’t crazy after all.

“I’m sorry I left last time. I kind of panicked.”

His soft lips pressed on her shoulder and she turned to look at him, raising her brow. “Why?”

He opened his mouth to respond when the doorbell chimed, sending another jolt through her, followed by a pounding on the front door.

Sebastian’s brow furrowed. “Who’s that?”

Irene scowled. “I don’t–”

Then the realization of her shrink appointment hit her, widening her eyes and making her gasp. “Oh, shit.”

“Reenie.” Lucille’s muffled voice rose into the open windows as she knocked again. “Wake up.”

Irene leapt out of bed so fast the room spun and she stumbled to maintain her balance.

“Whoa, whoa.” Sebastian followed suit, sunlight draping over his skin, rendering his already stunning body even more glorious. His tousled hair shone auburn in the golden rays, his feathered markings absorbing the light like black paint, and Jesus Christ, was that a sword etched into the length of his muscular leg–

“Reen? I’m coming in.” The jangle of keys struck fear into Irene’s heart as if Lucille had cocked a gun.

“Shit!” She scrambled to grab his pants, searching every corner of the room but finding them all empty.

“They’re downstairs,” he pointed out, a hint of a smile on his lips as he just stood there, nude and magnificent, infuriating her to no end.

She ran into the bathroom and tossed a towel at him. “Here, cover yourself up.” He caught the towel easily, letting it hang at his side while she rushed to throw on some clothes, struggling to slip on a too-tight pair of jeans.

Damn it, maybe she should wear her scrubs–

His warm hand touched her shoulder. “Reen. Calm down.”

The front door opened with a terrifying creak. Frantic now, she gave up on the jeans and opted for her robe, dashing back to the bathroom.

Sebastian pitched a sigh, wrapping the towel around his waist and tucking the edge at his hip. If it weren’t for the panic of being caught, she would’ve taken time to admire everything about this moment, waking up on a beautiful summer day with this gorgeous man in her bed.

But she didn’t have a freaking second because the clack of Lucille’s heels climbing up the stairs stomped right into Irene’s eardrums.

She cursed again and whispered a harsh, “Stay here,” before she slammed the door shut between them, her final vision of him standing with his hands on his hips wearing his signature lopsided grin.

Heaven is hell without her…

Former Navy SEAL Sebastian “Bash” Lockard died in Afghanistan after leaping on a grenade to save his comrades. Little did he know his act of heroism would grant him a ticket into Heaven’s elite army as one of the few and powerful Archangels. Struggling with his new existence, Bash still retains his human memories, leaving behind a wife he loves with all of his heart. Although he’s forbidden to see her, he can’t resist her lure, or the mortal desires he harbors for her.

As a young widow and nurse, Irene Lockard still mourns her husband two years after his untimely death. His absence is everywhere, and when her best friend weds, she hits an emotional rock bottom. As if summoned from the skies above, Sebastian appears before her, and they share an unforgettable night. But when he once again vanishes, she wonders if she’s truly gone mad with grief.

The only way Sebastian can remain with Irene is if he makes the ultimate sacrifice. But will she overcome her fear of losing him again to another war?


“Bash is the kind of hero readers will fall in love with–he is selfless to a fault, courageous and brave.” – InD’Tale Magazine

“Goodness, this story was amazing! Bash and Irene were insanely hot together and their chemistry, both physically and emotionally was off-the-charts.” – Natalie The Biblioholic

“A riveting paranormal that will latch onto your heart. The pacing swept me off my feet, the characters left me feeling raw and undone, and the writing flows effortlessly while bringing the heat and the heart. – Michaelene, The Librarian’s Corner


Bash’s gaze caught on a couple on the dance floor, the sight of her sinking into him like hooks and bringing him to a standstill.

With her dark curls springing over her shoulders, she spun across the hardwood, her pale gray dress flowing around her. Much like in his recent vision of her, she tipped her head back and laughed, beautiful, stunning, her smile as bright as the yellow calla lilies tucked in her hair. She swayed with a man in dress whites, a Marine, another fucking soldier she didn’t belong with. And as the rain of realization became a downpour of comprehension, he remembered the engagement, where Claude proposed to Lucille—at their wedding—right before Bash left for another tour of Afghanistan.

“Bash?” Gabriel stepped in front of him, blocking his view, pale eyes narrowed.

Bash’s hand slammed into Gabriel’s chest, pushing him away as he lurched forward. Gabriel reacted faster, though, snatching his arm and wrenching him back at least four feet. Bash lunged again and the Arc’s hand fisted in his white button-down shirt.

“Don’t,” Gabriel growled, all humor draining from his angular face and setting his expression in stone. “Do not.”

Bash’s heart punched at the angel’s fist, every fiber of his being burning with the urge to run to her, to wrap his arms around her and feel her body against his one more time. Envy, rage, longing, and sadness blasted through him in a toxic tornado of emotion ready to whip this place into oblivion.

He nearly ground his molars into pulp. “Let. Me. Go.”

“You are dead, Sebastian. You’re no longer part of this world. All you’ll do is bring her pain, bring yourself pain. Don’t do this.” Twin streams of air whistled from the Arc’s nostrils as he shook his head. “I should’ve never brought you here.”

Bring him pain? More pain than he’d already endured? No.

Blaze Knight has been through hell and back, but the nightmares aren’t over yet.

Five years after Blaze was maimed by Cyrus Chimola, a powerful vampire with a penchant for torture, he’s still trying to pick up the pieces of his shattered life. As a genetically engineered mercenary with the ability to bend fire to his will and to see in infrared, Blaze’s mission is to protect what’s left of humanity. When Chimola and his crew return to the Bronx gunning for Blaze’s blood, Blaze is forced to face the demons of his past. Hell-bent on revenge, he seeks the help of Valerie Medeiros, an NYPD detective who manages to steal his heart and save his life in more ways than one.

Motivated by her sister’s gruesome death, Valerie has made it her life’s goal to bury every vampire in the ground where they belong. When she brings in Blaze Knight for suspected murder, she discovers he’s not only innocent, he isn’t a man at all—he’s a half-vampire hybrid working with a band of brothers for the U.S. military. Valerie has a hard time trusting anything with fangs, yet she quickly falls headlong into Blaze’s life, a life full of darkness and horror she can’t even begin to fathom. The bodies are stacking up, but Valerie can’t seem to let go of this hybrid, a beautiful monster filled with pain, rage, and passion unlike anything she’s ever known.

In a world where the line between good and evil is blurred, Blaze and Valerie will find danger at every turn, risking everything they’ve come to know and love, including one another.
