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.

5 Fantastic Stars!
Review by Lisa Kane
This is one of those reviews that is hard to write without divulging too many spoilers. We know who Kai is, but who is Banks? Where is Damon? This is a lengthy book-some stories simply command more words than others do in order to do the story justice. But you have to give it your undivided attention, there are so many small clues which are dropped, so turn off the TV, put down the kitchen mitts and just read. Nothing wrong with take out for dinner once in a while.
We always knew there was so much more to Kai than was revealed in Corrupt. Now we find out some of the demons that plague him. I don’t think the reader will ever completely solve the Kai mystery but at least we know some important details about his past.

Now Banks is a hell of a mystery, and when her story starts to unfold, it is not a pretty one. There’s a lot of interaction between Banks and Rika. (I know, everyone wants to know if Banks knows about the infamous steamy steam room threesome) Banks can throw down, I’ll say that much. Being the main female character in the center of the testosterone circle, Rika needed to have her game upset a little. She’s the cherished princess, especially by Michael.

“She will never be equal!” he went on. “She will always mean more than you.”

I don’t count Alex for taking the focus off of Rika. She’s all about the sex, not necessarily about the feelings. Banks seems to make everyone a little uncomfortable, even if they don’t question their actions, she makes them think about some of their decisions.

Damon-now this guy has so many layers to him, I think of him as the onion man. I’m not sure how I feel about him. He has done some despicable things to his own friends, but we knew in the back of our minds that he had scars, deep scars that marked his soul. Even knowing a little about those I haven’t decided if he is worthy of redemption. I’ll withhold judgement on that after I read his book.

“She tenses when I touch her,” Kai told him. “It’s subtle, and it’s only for a moment, but it takes her off guard, like she’s not used to it.”

Up until now, I haven’t mentioned Will in this review. For me, that poor drunken train wreck needs to find some happiness-he has eaten his heart out over the same girl for years, drinking and whoring his pain away. I’m most anxious for his book. I’m hoping the one that he yearns for comes back, fights through the angst and delivers him from the hell he calls his life.
And Will knew it. He knew his extracurricular activities were becoming a problem, but he didn’t want his friends pointing it out.

Hideaway is complex, and sexy and mysterious. Just like Corrupt it will push your comfort zones. (you may never look at a pajama party the same!) There’s a couple of passages about dogs in this story that made me cringe, but Ms. Douglas wouldn’t keep us suffering, trust in her writing. Comfort zones are meant to be redefined, your boundaries may not be as black and white as you thought. Isn’t that what we are looking for-books that stand out from the crowd, books that have to fight like hell for their characters to get their HEA’s? After all, Devil’s Night is upon us, and scary things are bound to happen.

We may trip over each other for a while yet, but we weren’t people who were okay with failing, either. We’d figure it out
