Lightning Rider


NEW ADULT/FANTASY:  Feisty Latina and motorcycle enthusiast Evy Rivera has been down on her luck lately. After all, having a live-in boyfriend clean out both your bank account and apartment is enough to get anyone down. But when a trip to visit her father for the summer leads to her discovery of a secret power—the ability to manipulate time and lightning—Evy finds herself skipping through time and on the adventure of a lifetime. When she learns of her true destiny to alter historical events in order to save lives, will Evy find the strength to make some of the toughest decisions of her life and be vulnerable to this new thing called love? 


Readers who love urban fiction will love Evy Rivera and book one of the Lightning Rider series. She’s fierce and self-assured—anyone who picks up this book will root for her from start to finish. Although the book starts off very slowly and the details aren’t flushed out immediately and transparently, one will soon be sucked into the story and the budding romance between Evy and the Roman soldier, Constantine. Meticulously researched and well-executed, this book fills a very necessary place in both the romance genre and in multicultural literature.
