Rising Storm Episode 2 (Oct. 1): Lexi Blake’s White Lightning



Welcome to Storm, Texas, where passion runs hot, desire runs deep, and secrets have the power to destroy...

Nestled among rolling hills and painted with vibrant wildflowers, the bucolic town of Storm, Texas, seems like nothing short of perfection.

But there are secrets beneath the facade. Dark secrets.  Powerful secrets. The kind that can destroy lives and tear families apart.  The kind that can cut through a town like a tempest, leaving jealousy and destruction in its wake, along with shattered hopes and broken dreams. All it takes is one little thing to shatter that polish.

Reading like an on-going drama in the tradition of classic day and night-time soap operas like Dallas, Dynasty, and All My Children, Rising Storm is full of scandal, deceit, romance, passion, and secrets.

With 1001 Dark Nights as the “producer,” Julie Kenner and Dee Davis use a television model with each week building on the last to create a storyline that fulfills the promise of a drama-filled soap opera. Joining Kenner and Davis in the “writer’s room” is an incredible group of New York Times bestselling authors such as Lexi Blake, Elisabeth Naughton, Jennifer Probst, Larissa Ione, Rebecca Zanetti and Lisa Mondello who have brought their vision of Storm to life.

A serial soap opera containing eight episodes in season one, the season premiere of Rising Storm, TEMPEST RISING, debuted September 24th with each subsequent episode releasing consecutively this fall.

So get ready.  The storm is coming.

About WHITE LIGHTNING: Episode 2 of the Rising StormSeries

Secrets, Sex and Scandals …

Welcome to Storm, Texas, where passion runs hot, desire runs deep, and secrets have the power to destroy… Get ready. The storm is coming.

As the citizens of Storm, Texas, sway in the wake of the death of one of their own, Daddy’s girl Dakota Alvarez also reels from an unexpected family crisis … and finds consolation in a most unexpected place.

 The reins for White Lightening, episode two in the Rising Storm series have been handed over to the very capable hands of author Lexi Blake.

With Ginny Moreno continuing with her lie and now living with Celeste and Travis Salt, parents of her deceased friend Jacob. Focus shifts to Dakota Alvarez - daughter of Hector and Joanne. With her father missing, Daddy's girl Dakota is having her own pity party as she also mourns the death of Jacob, the person she hoped to eventually marry creating a one-way ticket out of Storm.

A different author may be writing each new episode and so far the transition has been seamless with Lexi Blake developing the featured protagonists beautifully as well as building the supporting characters, where lies, secrets and gossip are rife within this close knit community.

The men of intrigue are Sebastian Rush and Dillon Murphy. One is a sleazy senator, the other a local sheriff. Both appear to be pole opposites but each very capable of lying and deceit, albeit for differing reasons. Dakota crosses both their paths after illegally drinking the local moonshine White Lightening with very differing results. One is using her to gain points with her Mom, whilst the other sees her as another notch on his bedpost!

This action is a bit slower in this novella but the heat has turned up as lust sizzles just under the surface. This was over way too quickly and wait patiently to dive into episode three of this addictive series; Crosswinds by Elizabeth Naughton.
