Book Description

The epic conclusion of New York Times bestselling book Promise Me Darkness.

"I'm darkness, Maddie. Stay away from men like me. You'll only get hurt."

At one time my life was simple. Easy. But that was before the war. Now I was no longer an average college student. I was a survivor. A woman living in a ravaged world. My future was not bright and my life was far from perfect. The war had taken so much from me… but it wasn’t finished yet. It wanted more.

It wanted my heart. My soul. The one person I couldn’t live without.

It wanted Ryder Delaney. My best friend. The bad boy. The one person who could fight like no other and love me like no one else. He was the father of my baby. I watched him walk away one hot summer day and I prayed he would return. I needed him like I needed air to breathe and water to drink. Without him I was lost. A light without her darkness.

Until he returns, I’ll wait for him. And I believe he will return because love is powerful…

And so is the light calling him home.

Cover by Sarah Hansen of Okay Creations will be revealed September 9th!

Editorial Reviews


Voted one of the Top 15 Book Boyfriends of 2013 by readers! - Shh, Mom's Reading, I Love Indie Books, and Becca the Bibliophile

"Dark. Gritty. Intense. Raw. HOT. Loved it! 5++++ stars. Page turning, SEXY, SEXY (did I mention SEXY) emotional roller coaster. One of the reasons I love this series so much is because of the consistency that flows constantly and seamlessly within the entire storyline and also in the author's writing as well. Highly, highly recommend this series!" - The Book Hookup

"This book is outstanding, one everyone should read. You need this in your collection. This series is epic. Go get it, read it, and love it. Promise Me Light is one of those books that just leave you breathless and lost for words. Paige Weaver blew me away with her writing and her story; it is original and fresh. I can honestly say I don't think I have been this emotionally involved in a story in a while. Promise Me Light has become my benchmark standard for all other books I read. Everyone should have a copy of this series in their collection. This will be a book and series that I will come back to read again and again, and will never forget. 5 Epic stars and more if it were possible." - Love Words and Books

4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Conclusion to a Fantastic Series! September 24, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
"I love you, Maddie. Remember that. I'll love you forever. Now let me go."

Promise Me Light picks up right where Promise Me Darkness left off. The United States has been attacked and all power has been knocked out by a nuclear weapon EMP. The world is a different place - law and order (not to mention technology and modern day luxuries) are a thing of the past, survival is all that matters. Ryder, Gavin, and Brody have left the safety of the Delaney farm to find Eva who has been captured. Maddie stays behind and lets Ryder leave without telling him she is pregnant with his child. Two weeks later, they return with Eva but without Ryder. He's been shot and captured by enemy forces.

Maddie is devastated and struggles to accept that Ryder may never return to her and their unborn child. As Maddie tries to cope with the reality of losing Ryder, she recalls memories from their past as children, teens, and young adults. Through a series of flashbacks, we learn more about Ryder and Maddie's feelings for each other. I especially loved these flashbacks and how they show Ryder has always been in love with her.

"He said from the time he was a little kid, he never felt like he belonged anywhere. He said with you, he was home. You saw him as someone good. Someone that thought he hung the moon."

The months that follow are rough. A brutal winter and enemy attacks all stand to destroy the life the survivors are trying to build especially Maddie and the life she wants for her unborn child.

"I had shed so many tears in the last few months that the last thing I wanted was to ever cry again. But the tears fell anyway, cold and wet on my frozen cheeks. I left them unchecked, refusing to brush them away. They reminded me of what I had lost.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mixed feelings! September 26, 2013
By Adelin
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm not sure on how to rate this. The writing was 4 Stars! The story was 2 Stars. Long and laborious, like wading through a depression of misery. The story spends most of the time in despair. I was skimming just to get through it and I was sick of always feeling down. There's small glimpses of hope only to be squashed again. I would have been fine not reading this second book. I like how well the author writes but not the story. As long as the author writes about something different next time I will give her another try.

I read it all day. Couldn't stop till the end. Wish it wasn't over, I want more. I loved it. I even cried, the ending was so good. Not only was it a great love story but it was a awesome account of American spirit and enduring courage.

5.0 out of 5 stars this book has everything! September 24, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I knew this book would be good, but WOW it surpassed my expectations! This book, just like Promise me Darkness, is a mixture of contemporary romance and dystopian. You have Maddy and Ryder, best friends from childhood, struggle to build their relationship in a world where the Americans are fighting for survival. When Ryder is captured and assumed dead, Maddy tries to find the strength to get up everyday. My emotions were all over the place while reading this......I cried , got angry, hoping for their happiness to arrive. I strongly recommend this book to anyone who loves a good love story, with a hot sexy bad boy!

2.0 out of 5 stars 2 generous stars! September 25, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is long, drawn out and goes no where. Can't really review. It all fell flat for me. A continuous loop that drops off the cliff in the Epilogue.

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Awful. If I hear the word "growl" or "hiss" one more time, I`'ll throw my kindle out the window. Terrible story line, terrible writing. How is this author "best selling"?
