Kill Switch, an all-new standalone dark romantic suspense by Penelope Douglas.


Sending him to prison was the worst thing I could’ve done. It didn’t matter that he did the crime or that I wished he was dead. Perhaps I thought I’d have time to disappear before he got out or he’d cool off in jail and be anything but the horror he was.

But I was wrong. Three years came and went too fast, and now he’s anything but calm. Prison only gave him time to plan.

And while I anticipated his vengeance, I didn’t expect this.

He doesn’t want to make me hurt. He wants to make everything hurt.


First thing’s first. Get rid of her daddy. He told them I forced her. He told them his little girl was a victim, but I was a kid, too, and she wanted it just as much as I did.

Step two… Give her, her sister, and her mother nowhere to run and no fuel to escape. The Ashby women are alone now and desperate for a knight in shining armor.

But that’s not what’s coming.

No, it’s time I listened to my father and took control of my future. It’s time I showed them all—my family, her family, my friends—that I will never change and that I have no other ambition than to be the nightmare of their lives.

Starting with her.

She’ll be so scared, she won’t even be safe in her own head by the time I’m done with her. And the best part is I won’t have to break into her home to do it.

As the new man of the house I have all the keys.

Kill Switch is suitable for readers 18+. While it can be read as a stand-alone, all of the characters are developed throughout the series. The first two books, Corrupt and Hideaway, are now available through Kindle Unlimited!


~ Maria’s 5 Star Review ~

Kill Switch by Penelope Douglas has been my most anticipated book release since the day author Penelope Douglas announced she would be writing it. It is book 3 in the Devil’s Night series. It is Damon’s story. And it is ahhhhmazing. Kill Switch is everything I hoped it would be and more. I loved it. I highly recommend this series. While I guess it could be read as a stand-alone, the author does say you should at least read Corrupt, book 1 in the series to understand and appreciate the story arc that continues in Kill Switch. Personally, I think that all 3 should be read in order to fully enjoy the story, relationships, the twists and avoid spoilers. Because, trust me, if you read one, you’ll want to read them all, so why not start from the beginning? It’s a thrill ride you won’t want to miss!

In Kill Switch, we get to crawl inside Damon Torrence’s mind. What a dark, twisted, complicated place it is. He is the epitome of an antihero, a bad boy to the extreme. Yet, there’s so much more to him than meets the eye. So much more than what he lets on. I loved his character from book 1. He is the man you love to hate who becomes the guy you want to take care of, help, fix. Winter is Damon’s match. She is feisty, brave, sassy but vulnerable and the target of Damon’s vendetta. And she’s also so much more.

I love reading about how they met and all the things that went on. The alternating POV and flashbacks enhance the story. I love the interaction between all the characters, especially Will and Damon and Rika and Damon. The relationships between all of them are so complex.  So many secrets, hidden players, back stories, twists and turns. Kill Switch is a thrilling, crazy rollercoaster ride. Just when you think you know, BOOM, another shoe drops.

Author Penelope Douglas blew me away with this one. Each book has been better than the last. Damon is by far my favorite, but there’s still Will’s book coming. CANNOT wait to see how it ends. Highly recommend, especially for readers who like their romance with an edgy, twisted darkness.

“I’m sixteen, and I’ve never been kissed.” I put my hands on his chest, feeling my breasts grazing his body. “I waited for you.”


“I waited for you,” I repeated, panting and brushing his lips with mine. “But I won’t wait forever.”

I layered my lips with his and dipped my tongue out, flicking his lip as I rolled my hips on him. The unmistakably hard ridge of his cock rubbed against my panties through his jeans, and I moaned.

He grabbed me under my arms, holding me up to his face. “That better not be a threat,” he bit out.

And then he took my face in one hand and snatched up my lips, biting my bottom one, almost chewing it like he was starving.

He groaned, I whimpered, and we both gave in, holding each other in our arms, our mouths melting together.

I was fast and clumsy, and I couldn’t keep up with his kisses and tongue in my mouth, but I loved every second.

He nibbled and bit and took with force, gripping the back of my hair to tip my head back and eat at my neck. He moved from my throat to my chin to my jaw and then back to my mouth, and I clutched at his shoulders, tugging on his sweatshirt as I dry-humped him. God, I couldn’t stop myself. He felt so good. It was like an itch that I needed to scratch more and harder.

I tugged at my bow tie, unable to breathe.

Pulling it loose, I unbuttoned my top button, finally feeling freer and diving in, hugging him to where he was sucking on my neck.

My hips moved back and forth, grinding into him

“Winter…” he groaned, pulling back. “I don’t want to…”

I picked up pace, and he grabbed my ass, helping me move.

“Don’t want to what?” I gasped out.

“Make you dirty.”

I slowed, touching his mouth with mine and kissing him softly.

Why would he think that?

“You won’t.” I shook my head, touching his face. “We won’t go all the way. We’ll just play.”

He breathed out a laugh.

I kissed him, and he dug his fingers in again, making my body explode and every inch of skin come alive. God, I loved it when he did that.
