Will Grayson has always been an animal. Reckless and wild, he’s never had a problem breaking the rules – especially not the ones that apply to him anyway. Set aside from the rest of his privileged family, Will is sent to Blackchurch – a secluded mansion in a remote area where the wealthy and powerful send their misbehaving sons to cool off away from prying eyes. It’ll be long enough for them to come back a reformed man – or at least as much as they can be when their lives are controlled by other people and they have no choice but to behave or get sent back!
In a secluded mansion at the edge of the world, criminals like Will Grayson are given to Blackchurch – a place where they can restore their broken spirits and make amends for their sins. There is no punishment more significant than that facing Will as he faces off against his grandfather’s perfect son and heir. Can he redeem himself? Or will he fall deeper into depravity?
Penelope Douglas’s award-winning miniseries, The Nightfall Chronicles, is an epic vampire tale set in her wildly popular Nightfall world. Set in a wealthy enclave and centered around the romance between Will Grayson—a delinquent rebel boy with a heart of gold—and Sarah Susan Howells—a rebellious genius destined for the wrong side of the tracks.
In the summer of 1983, Will Grayson, who loves music and girls, desperately wants to play guitar in a band. But everything he touches turns to angst. Will’s best friend, Scott or Ted—both named after pop icons—is a hero in his eyes and he wants desperately to prove himself worthy of the personification of his favorite songwriter. And along the way, he falls for Kate Feder, who helps him overcome his fear of speaking out in public. Then there’s Danny Zuko from Grease: clumsy comic relief everyone loves for being totally out of control … so much so that every boy wants him on their team.
About Nightfall Book
From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Douglas comes the thrilling, final installment in the Devil’s Night series…
What happens when it’s five against one and nowhere to run?
They call it Blackchurch. A secluded mansion in a remote, undisclosed location where the wealthy and powerful send their misbehaving sons to cool off away from prying eyes.
Will Grayson has always been an animal, though. Reckless, wild, and someone who was never bound by a single rule other than to do exactly what he wanted. There was no way his grandfather was going risk him humiliating the family again.
Not that the last time was entirely his fault. He might’ve enjoyed backing me into corners in high school when no one was looking, so they wouldn’t catch on that Mr. Popular actually wanted a piece of that quiet, little nerd he loved to torture so much, but…
He could also be warm. And fierce in keeping me safe.
The truth is… He has a right to hate me.
It’s all my fault. Everything.
Devils Night. The videos. The arrests.
I’m to blame for all of it.
And I regret nothing.
I never minded being locked up. I learned a long time ago that being treated like an animal gives you permission to act like one. No one has ever looked at me any other way.
Their only mistake is believing anything I do is an accident. I can sit in this house with no Internet, television, liquor, or girls, but I’ll come out of here with something far more frightening to my enemies.
And a new pack of wolves.
I just didn’t expect one of my enemies to come to me.
I don’t know who smuggled her in or if they meant to leave her here, but I can smell her hiding in the house. She’s here.
And as the security detail leaves the supplies, the gates close, and the door to my gilded cage opens, giving me free reign of the house and grounds for another unsupervised month, I remember with a smile…
Blackchurch houses five prisoners. I’m only one of her problems.
Nightfall is a full-length, romantic suspense suitable for readers 18+. It’s necessary to read the prior installments in the series before starting this story.
