Except there is the man in her feverish dreams, the strangely beautiful man who beckons her to freedom and wholeness.

I don’t normally read/listen to these types of books; I like my sweet HEA, but this one . . .
Abbie Roads uses such vivid descriptions that several times I had to close the book to clear the visual from my mind. It’s that good.
Xander Stone, after being hit by lightning, was given the gift, or curse, of being able to hear people’s thoughts. The police use this ability during their interrogations. For years Xander was plagued by an internal voice begging him to save someone, an unknown woman. He drank until the voice was silenced.
Isleen Walker and her grandmother had been held captive and tortured for eight years. The only thing that kept her alive was her frail grandmother’s promise that her savior would come and save them. It was too late. The last stabbing in her side would be the end of her, if not Queen would finish it in the morning. Grandma lied, he wasn’t going to rescue her.
The story is so involved and intense that you don’t know where she is going to take you next. Your heart starts to calm down and she scares you with something else.
Roger Wayne was an exceptional narrator.
There were several, but I pick Isleen Walker. She went through so much but never gave up hope. Xander the hero because how he protected her, and Rowena for being the mother neither of them had.
This was a scary story, and Roger's inflections fit the type of story.
