PNR Author L. Diane Wolfe: WIP it Real Good - In Darkness Series

In Darkness: The Shark
is my latest release and the second in the In Darkness novella series. The first was The Vampire (released this past February) and next up is The Werewolf (September 5).

I’d like to share a snippet from The Werewolf, set in England mid-1980s.

Salisbury Cathedral opened moments after their arrival. Nicholas stared up at the imposing tower, hesitant to enter. Would he experience acceptance this time? A tug on his sleeve caught his attention.

“Come on,” Vicki said, pulling him toward the entrance.

He approached the doors, a healthy fear of God tingling his nerves. Why did I suggest this? Father, forgive me. Please forgive the beast inside.

They entered the building and Vicki gasped. Nicholas held his breath, afraid to look. His movement gradual, he lifted his gaze. The massive cathedral opened before them, powerful and splendid in all her ancient glory. The presence of God thundered in the high ceiling, the sound rushing to meet the floor below. He shuddered at the sensation.

“Are you all right?” Vicki said.

Her fingers curled around his and her touch brought a measure of calm. “I’m fine.”

Straightening his back, Nicholas took a brave step forward. With Vicki’s hand wrapped around his, a surge of strength flowed through him. I can do this.

No longer consumed by dread, he let Vicki lead.

She paused for a photo. He hated to relinquish her hand and did so with reluctance. Waiting next to a pew, he glanced at the ceiling. A breeze moved down the corridor, stirring his hair. Rather than a chill, a warm breath touched his skin. The sensation set him at ease.

This is their second date. Nicholas is understandably nervous about entering the cathedral and it reveals his attitude toward his condition: he considers it an evil curse. While it isn’t a curse, it does present a struggle for him. Both main characters have a “condition” that causes them to withdraw from other people (shrouded in darkness), and the story reveals that through each other, they find acceptance.

You don’t have to wait until September to read about characters shrouded in darkness, though! The Shark and The Vampire are both available now.

Souls shrouded in darkness…

Focused on her studies and duties at the aquarium, Jewels prefers her solitary life. Burned many times and short on trust, she has more in common with her aquatic friends than the people around her. But she never imagined coming face to face with a shark named Clarence…a shark who talks!
