Kill Switch, an all-new standalone dark romantic suspense by Penelope Douglas is live!

Aundi’s Musings…


This is the story that you’ve been waiting for. Damon and Winter will leave you gasping and wanting for more! Their story is full of all the twist and turns that we’ve come to love and expect from Penelope delivered in a tension filled package of pure angst. This is one story that you cannot prepare for, so just sit back and enjoy the ride!

“Now…” my sister’s new husband whispered in my ear. “Now, you belong to me.”

I should never have doubted that Penelope would get me to love a character, because here I am, after Kill Switch, in love with Damon! Whom by the way I completely despised throughout the other stories. You get to really see him for the first time, and learn everything that he has had to endure throughout his life. It makes who is more understandable. It definitely does not negate what he’s done but it casts it in a whole new light.

This man has been through something that many will never have to. And he’s figured out a way to compartmentalize that, is it the healthiest of ways absolutely not. But if you’ve never been in the same situation who are you to judge how someone handles their triggers. He endured years of abuse that has cause him some serious PTSD. And unbeknownst to Winter she’s the one that gave him his outlet to come back down from the brink. This bonds them down to his marrow. She’s helped him whether she knows it or not, she saved a piece of his soul that day.

I love Winters character she is strong, stronger than what other’s give her credit for. And I absolutely adore that Damon fosters this strength. He never makes her feel like she can’t do something. Because to him she is capable of all things. This just melted my heart more for him. He builds her up but at the same time protects her against all else.

You won’t make me dirty. There is no you. There is no me. This is us. Us.

Winter and Damon’s relationship is a series of miscommunication’s and accident’s that were taken out of context. When Damon loves he loves hard and he fell in love with Winter. But because of the circumstances regarding how she ended up blind he could not reveal himself to her. Which in turn caused so many more issues. At first I was so mad at Winter for what she did, but as the story progressed I understood it to an extent. She felt betrayed and lied to and so I get it. But she broke one of the remaining good pieces in him. Their love story was truly a hard fought love. They had to overcome so many obstacles to be together and to ultimately forgive each other for prior transgressions and just be together. I think this is why they are one of my favorites. They had to fight and claw their way to each other. And Damon never gave up!

“Having Damon around was the only time I ever felt solid in my life,” he told me. “He’s powerful. But painful.”

I love everything about this story. Each one gets better and better. This world that Penelope has created is all consuming and completely addictive. These characters and this story line are LIFE! Penelope’s words seep into your blood and become part of your marrow, you slowly become the story. You are feeling what they are feeling, every emotion, every tension, every sense of danger rips through you as if your there. You Need. This. In. Your. Life!!!!

Kill-Switch-EBOOK (1).jpg


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!
