The Vow Exclusive

 Exclusive Excerpt from THE VOW, coming Dec 1, 2020.

I rolled to the other side of the bed. “You can lie down next to me if you like. I mean… until the serial killers outside my room leave.”

All I could see were his silhouette and his hesitation. “Maybe you should put your pants on.”

“I can’t sleep in jeans.”

“I should go.”

“Then go.”

A curtain of silence fell between us.

“I can’t go,” he said, his voice rough. “Those men are still there.”

Tickled, I pulled the sheet to my chin. “Do you want me to get my bow out of the car and protect you?”

Though I couldn’t see his smile, I knew it was there.

The bed dipped low when he anchored his knee on it and flopped onto his back. His shoes hit the floor one at a time. As my eyes began to adjust to what little light was in the room, his profile came into view. Lakota’s expression was inscrutable, his eyes fixed on the ceiling as he laced his fingers across his chest.

“What are you thinking about?” I asked.

“Do you really wanna know?”

“I wouldn’t ask if I didn’t.”

He hesitated for a moment. “That night in the snowstorm… when I found you. I think about it a lot.”

I also spent many nights thinking about it but probably for different reasons. “Why?”

“I don’t know,” he said. “It changed me somehow. When I found you, my wolf felt at peace. I haven’t known that kind of peace since. No matter how many cases I break or how many people I rescue, he’s always restless.”


  1. So happy you are writing about Melody and Lakota. I was hoping you would. I love the 7 series. I have listen to the whole series about 5 times now. I love the characters you created in this series and am glad to see them carry on.

    1. I feel the same way about the seven series! So glad the story is going to continue!

  2. Amazing.. Thank you thank you for writing a book about Lakota and Melody. I am re reading the seven series again. It’s still one of my favorites. Thanks again I am so freakin excited!!!!

  3. The song 'Best Friend's Brother' just came to mind. ❤ Thank you for continuing their story! I've missed the Seven series characters!

  4. Wow!!! So happy that Lakota and Mel get a book!!!!

  5. Yay!! My life needed this right now!!! I have missed this series! I hope it is one of many to come!!! It's like a reunion with old friends!!

  6. I am so excited about this. One of the reasons I love Lakota so much is that he comes from the 2 worlds, Seven series and Mageri, and now he gets his own little piece of the world. Very cool.
    I'm looking forward to reading it. Your books never disappoint.

  7. Will the audio of this book be available at the same time as the book release? Will Nicole Poole be the narrator? I'm very excited for this book! I love all of Dannika Dark's books .... absolutely my favorite as is Nicole Poole! Great duo!
