Rising Storm Series

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.

Secrets, Sex and Scandals … 

During his time in Afghanistan, Logan Murphy has endured the unthinkable, but reentering civilian life in Storm is harder than he imagined. But when he is reacquainted with Ginny Moreno, a woman who has survived terrors of her own, he feels the first stirrings of hope.


Ginny suddenly stepped forward, a tentative smile on her face. Travis immediately let go of Celeste’s elbow and reached for Ginny, his expression paternal. Celeste’s face lit up a bit too as she stood by, as if some of her troubles were eased just by being in Ginny’s presence.

Logan knew what that felt like.

The sucker punch happened low in his gut. A pleasant, warm feeling trickled through his veins. Damn, he felt like he was in some chick flick movie, but he’d never experienced such a chemistry with any other woman, not like this.

Not like her.

“Welcome home, Logan,” she said softly, her words echoing their talk in the park. He stared at her beautiful face, glowing with her pregnancy. Smooth, golden skin. Those wide dark eyes, so full of mysteries and secrets he wished he could delve into. Curly black hair tumbling over her shoulders. Tonight, she wore black pants and a simple black lacy top that stretched over her small breasts. Her lips were a deep red. Logan tried not to stare at that mouth, which looked lush and ripe like a Red Delicious apple he wanted to bite into. Her belly only showed a tiny bump, confirming Jacob’s baby was growing inside her body.

What was wrong with him? He’d imagined being a bit disgusted by himself for being attracted to a pregnant woman, but in his heart, he only recognized Ginny. The girl he’d grown up with. The girl with the hearty laugh and sparkling eyes, and impish trouble she’d get into with her friends. In the years he’d been away, she’d changed. Ripened. There were regrets and secrets in her eyes that called to him, because he had his own.

It was almost as if they were soul mates, finally reunited.

Of course, that was crazy.


He must’ve been staring at her for a while because Celeste frowned. He forced himself to speak. “It’s good to be home. How are you feeling, Ginny?” Logan craved a more intimate conversation, but Celeste seemed to keep a protective eye on her house guest.

Ginny shifted her feet. Her hands automatically came to rest on her stomach. “Okay. Morning sickness has been hard. I’m taking it a day at a time. Like everyone, I guess.” She glanced at Celeste. “I’m being well taken care of, though.”

Celeste smiled and patted her arm. “We take care of each other now. And once the baby comes, maybe we’ll be able to see past some of the pain and savor some joy. We’ll have a permanent part of Jacob with us.”

Ginny winced. Was she embarrassed to be carrying Jacob’s son? Or was it just hard to hear his name spoken aloud? Logan wondered how deep her grief went. He ached to hold her gently in his arms and take care of her. He was sure the Salts gave her what she needed, but he also knew about the downfalls of a small town, especially Storm. The town loved their gossip, and judgment.
