Genre: Romantic Suspense

Release Date: October 2nd, 2017


DEVIL’S NIGHT is returning! Hiding places, chases, and all the games are back… 


Buried in the shadows of the city, there’s a hotel called The Pope. Ailing, empty, and dark—it sits abandoned and surrounded by a forgotten mystery.

But you think it’s true, don’t you, Kai Mori? The story about the hidden twelfth floor. The mystery of the dark guest who never checked in and never checks out. You think I can help you find that secret hideaway and get to him, don’t you?

You and your friends can try to scare me. You can try to push me. Because even though I struggle to hide everything I feel when you look at me—and have ever since I was a girl—I think that maybe what you seek is so much closer than you’ll ever realize.

I will never betray him.

So sit tight.

On Devil’s Night, the hunt will be coming to you.


You have no idea what I seek, Little One. You don’t know what I had to become to survive three years in prison for a crime I would gladly commit again.

No one can know what I’ve turned into.

I want that hotel, I want to find him, and I want this over.

I want my life back.

But the more I’m around you, the more I realize this new me is exactly who I was meant to be.

So come on, kid. Don’t chicken out. My house is on the hill. So many ways in, and good luck finding your way out.

I’ve seen your hideaway. Time to see mine.

*Hideaway is a romantic suspense suitable for ages 18+. While the romance is a stand-alone, the plot is a continuation of events that began in CORRUPT (Devil’s Night, #1). It is strongly recommended that you have read Corrupt prior to reading this. It is currently on sale for $0.99. 

Mary’s 3.75 Star Review

Penelope Douglas has a niche for writing an incredible story, that takes you on a roller coaster of emotions, and gives you all the suspense you crave. Hideaway followed that exact course, and if you think, you knew anything about how the story was going to lead, then you were surely mistaken. The author introduced a plethora of new characters that you can imagine kept the four horseman on their toes.

We are immediately taken back to the past when Kai and Banks met. She is a mystery to Kai, and from the moment they meet, he can’t get her out of his head. Banks has a connection to one of his best friends that he doesn’t comprehend, and goes years without even understanding until she is thrust back into his life. This book continues shortly after Corrupt the first book in the series, so if you read that one you will know that a rift between these men is way more than simple. Introducing Banks and seeing her story had my head spinning for a short time. The suspense and secrets that unravel will keep you second guessing everything you assumed about one of the four horsemen, and you may even sympathize and get why he turned out to be so evil. I know cryptic right? That is exactly how this story flowed from beginning to the very end.

So, yes, questions will be answered. New ones will arise. You will be mad, and jealous, maybe even a little happy while reading. The story isn’t fast paced. It takes a long while to get to the good stuff, in my opinion. The book picked up for me at the half way point, so make sure you stick with it until the last page. It will be worth the wild, and crazy ride
