EXCERPT

“I don’t know what Josh tells you about me—if he tells you anything at all—but I assure you, you have no idea what I want or what’s in my best interest.”

I paused, causing her to stumble into my chest. My thumb and forefinger grasped her chin, forcing her to look up at me. “Try me.”

Ava blinked, her breaths coming out in short, shallow puffs. “My favorite color.”

“Yellow.”

“My favorite ice cream flavor.”

“Mint chocolate chip.”

Her chest rose and fell harder. “My favorite season.”

“Summer, because of the warmth and sunshine and greenery. But secretly, winter fascinates you.” I lowered my head until my own breath skated over her skin and her scent crawled into my nostrils, drugging me. Turning my voice into a hoarse, sinful version of itself. “It speaks to the darkest parts of your soul. The manifestations of your nightmares. It’s everything you fear, and for that, you love it. Because the fear makes you feel alive.”

The band played, and the people around us whirled and danced, but in this world we’d carved for ourselves, it was silent save for our ragged intakes of breath.

Ava shivered beneath my touch. “How do you know all that?”

“It’s my job to know things. I observe. I watch. I remember.” I gave into my desire—a tiny one—and traced her lips with my thumb. A shudder rolled through us, our bodies so in sync we reacted the exact fucking way at the exact fucking time. I brought my thumb down and tightened my grip on her chin. “But those are shallow questions, Sunshine. Ask me something real.”

He was the darkness to my light, and together, we will find solace.

The Dark Series by Danah Logan



Series: The Dark Series
Author: Danah Logan
Genre: New Adult Contemporary
Romantic Suspense
Cover Design: Danah Logan


IN THE DARK
Releasing May 11

My name is Lilly McGuire.
I accepted a long time ago that my older brother is no longer part of my life. It’s been over two years, and I still have no clue why he stopped talking to me.

Everything was great. Then he left for football camp the summer before I was going to join him at Westbridge High. When he came back, he pretended I didn’t exist, leaving the room every time I’d enter. Eventually, he stopped coming home altogether and basically moved in with his best friend, Wes. Our parents never said a word.

Now, just when I’m content again with my life, I choose the wrong topic for my journalism assignment. Or is it maybe the right one?

I get sucked into a ten-year-old case of missing girls, and with every passing day, I get pulled in deeper and deeper into a world that makes me question everything I believed to be the truth. When I finally decide that I’m simply losing my mind, something unexpected happens, and I have to make a choice that will determine not only my entire future, but also my safety.


My name is Rhys McGuire.
My life is based on secrets, and two years ago, I had to make a choice. I stayed away, but I’ve kept watching.

Now, fate has thrown me a bone, and the decision is mine again. Stay quiet or come clean? Continue the charade or tell her everything that’s been tearing me apart since I was seven years old?

The choice is mine, but do I really have one? If she finds out, I could lose her forever. The ones she has trusted most will be the ones that have betrayed her—maybe even beyond repair. I want to believe that she would forgive me, but could she move past all of the lies?


In the Dark is the first book in a series of secrets, love, friendship, betrayal, AND more secrets.


**AUTHOR’S NOTE:
Dear Reader, In the Dark is the first book in a trilogy within The Dark Series and ends with a CLIFFHANGER.
This series is intended for MATURE readers. Please be aware that as the series progresses, THE BOOKS could contain TRIGGERS some readers may find bothersome.

Prologue

HIM

I walk into her room for the nightly check, expecting the usual crying and pleading to let her go home, but when I open the door and hear nothing, I know something is wrong. I rush to her small form on the bed, calling her name, but she is not responding. I shake her, but she’s completely limp in my arms. Checking her pulse, I sigh in relief. She’s alive. What have I done? I scoop her up and race outside to my car which, thankfully, is still in the driveway from my earlier errand. Making sure she is secure in the backseat, I break every speed limit to the nearest emergency room. I can’t lose her, too. Making sure my hat is low, hood covering my hair and most of my face, I race inside the double doors and nearly throw her at the first nurse I can find. “HELP HER!”
Back in the car, I lean my forehead against the steering wheel and try to catch my breath, chanting, “She will be fine. She will be fine. She will be fine. I’ll get her back.”



OUT OF THE DARK
Releasing May 25

My name is Lilly.
When I discovered our family’s secrets—my secrets—I thought it couldn’t get worse. I was so very wrong.

Not only did my family betray me, but through my desperate need for answers, I put myself back on his radar. He tracked me. He exposed me. But yet, I wasn’t afraid of him.

I wasn’t prepared for the answers he offered me. There was a connection I couldn’t deny, but what did that mean? For me, my future and, most of all, the boy I love.

I thought I knew the worst, but did I? The more I dug, the more questions emerged. How many secrets are there?


My name is not important. Yet.
I lost my family. I lost my freedom, for a while, then I found her. I had another chance, but I couldn’t keep her. They hid her from me, and I made peace with having temporary replacements.

However, one email during a painfully boring business dinner changed everything.

Now, I am looking at her, and I have to come clean. I don’t have a choice. But will my secrets scare her away? Most people would make a run for it and call the authorities on their way—but she’s not most. I’m not normal. I know it, and she will, too. Very soon.

The question is, will I lose her again, or will something develop that neither of us expected to find?


Follow Lilly’s journey in the second book of The Dark Series and find out the secret(s) that lead her to “him”.

OF LIGHT AND DARK
Releasing June 8

My name is Lilly.
What is my last name, you ask?
I. Don’t. Know.

I lost track of who I am months ago. I thought I was a McGuire until my brother let me in on the secrets that drove a wedge between my family so many years ago.

Consumed with the need for answers, I made decisions others would’ve called reckless—and they’re probably right.

The feeling of betrayal sat too deep for me to see reason. I should’ve told my parents, informed the authorities, but trust is a fragile thing. Once it’s broken, is there really a chance of rebuilding it?

Then I met him.

He gave me answers, but he had questions of his own. The more time we spent together, the more we bonded…until the lines were blurred.
Home was no longer tied to a place but to two individuals.
Throughout our search for the truth, I almost lost the boy that means everything to me.
Hunted by the media, tormented by Rhys’s psychotic ex and her followers, I became a target, and my need to run put everyone at risk.

No one could’ve expected what actually happened over a decade ago. How one decision started a chain of events that led to me being the pawn in her game.


Find out what really happened ten years ago in this angst-filled, romantic-suspense story full Of Light and Dark.

AUTHOR BIO

Danah Logan is a new aspiring Indie author. Born and raised in Germany, she moved to the U.S. and eventually traded downtown Chicago’s city life for the northern Rockies.

From a young age, she has always had “voices” in her head. She wrote short stories in high school; however, eventually stopped as life got busier.

Then, at the beginning of 2018, a friend told her she should pick her writing back up. Until that point, her focus was on raising her two-year-old twins, and she had never even thought about writing again. One evening, she dug through old back-up CDs (yes, people still have those) and found the original version of one of her short stories. About forty thousand words in, she realized there is no way to tell the story in just one book, and that’s when her first book series was born.

With many more plots in her head, this writing gig has become Danah’s passion, and she spends every free minute in front of her laptop, letting the voices out.

EXCERPT

“Okay.” Brandon slaps his hands together and rubs them villainously. “Let’s go get our palms read.”
“In there?” I point to the double-gallery house behind him. There isn’t a sign. There’s a blue neon light in the shape of a palm in the window, and in the middle it says, ‘Palm Readings.’ Nothing else. No business name or anything. If anything, the building gives me the creeps. It’s two blocks over from Bourbon Street, so it isn’t as busy. It’s dark; the only light illuminating the sidewalk is from the blue glow of the sign.
“Look, this place has got to be legit, right? I saw a flyer at the bar,” Brandon protests.
Michelle is grabbing my hand tight and hiding behind me, peeking out from around me. “It looks creepy,” she whispers, just as the wind blows, causing the wind chimes hanging above the doorway to tinkle mysteriously.
I narrow my eyes at the musical instruments creating gorgeous high-pitched tunes, but the closer I look at them and the more my eyes adjust to the night, I begin to notice something off about them. I take a step forward, the porch groaning as I step onto it.
“What are you doing?” Michelle hisses to keep her voice low so no one inside hears us.
Doubtful, since no one seems to be here.
“How have we lived in New Orleans all this time and not done this? I’m excited.” Brandon goes to knock, but I grab his wrist before he can.
“Because locals fucking know better. Either you dive into the real shit or you don’t. Tourists don’t care,” I explain.
I keep my arm stretched out to keep Michelle behind me. Something feels off. I look around noticing no one else around. The upbeat jazz music has faded in the distance, but the cheers of drunk people can still be heard.
The clonks of hooves tap against the road, which has me turning my head to see a horse and carriage. The loud wail of the chimes rings again, bringing my attention back to the odd shapes. Are those… my eyes widen when I finally see what I think they are.
“Oh my god, are those bones?” I reach up to touch them to see if maybe they feel real, but Michelle stops me.
“Don’t you dare. If they are bones, you could catch something…”
“They aren’t real. Come on.” Brandon runs his finger over what looks like a ribcage. “It’s supposed to be spooky. Gives it the ‘real feel.’”
“Your friend is right, mon cher.” An old woman’s Cajun accent has us all jumping and taking a step back.
When the hell did she open the door?
“‘Dem bones are from a cat. Don’t worry. It was already dead. Did not want to let it go to waste.” She rings the chimes by pulling the spine that sways in the middle and runs it across the ribs to create more music.
Honestly, now all I hear are sad meows.
