Debuting the brand new Sydney Rye Kindle World with Rough Road, a Blood Orchids prequel novella starring Lei and Sydney Rye, together for the first time! Rough Road is a prequel to the first book in my long-running Lei Crime Series, Blood Orchids, and falls right after Death in the Dark, Sydney Rye #2 in Emily Kimelman's series.
Emily Kimelman and I became friends over a mutual love of kickass heroines with dogs, and she came to Maui to research her Lei Crime Kindle World novella, Warrior Dog, the plot of Fire Beach told from Keiki's point of view, and a personal favorite of mine.
As Emily’s Sydney Rye Series grew in popularity, Amazon offered her a Kindle World too, and she asked me to write for it. Of course I said yes, and here I am, feeling nostalgic at the magic that happened so spontaneously on the pages in this story that sets the stage for my series—because lo and behold, Sydney, Blue, and Merl had a hand in Lei’s future.
Some bad road trips are still meant to be taken.
Twenty-one year old Lei Texeira and her friend Amy set off on a road trip for Cabo San Lucas, looking for fun in the sun—but a wrong turn leads to danger south of the border. Lei meets Sydney and Blue in the desert, learns the ways of vigilante justice, and a friendship is born. Merl, Sydney’s badass trainer, teaches Lei the sweet rewards of taking a risk and learning to let go. In this prequel to Blood Orchids, Lei makes discoveries that will shape her life and future forever.
“Rough Road is the perfect example of what makes Kindle Worlds so awesome—Toby Neal has captured my world perfectly while making it her own. Rough Road is action-packed, sexy, and impossible to put down. Lei and Sydney working together are so good! I’m keeping my fingers crossed that Toby will decide to write another.” ~Emily Kimelman, author of the Sydney Rye Series
