Deal With The Devil by Cynthia Eden
Series: Purgatory, #4
Publication Date: June 9, 2015
New York Times and USA Today best-selling author Cynthia Eden spins a hot new paranormal Purgatory story with…DEAL WITH THE DEVIL.
Eric Pate is used to making his own rules—as the director of the PARA Unit, he is the boss. Everyone rushes to obey his commands, and no one knows his secrets. No one ever gets too close to him. But then he meets her.
Ella Lancaster is tired of being a prisoner. She escaped one hell just to find herself in another, but Eric doesn’t consider her containment with his agents as punishment. He actually thinks it is a form of protection. But Eric is so very wrong. Ella doesn’t need protecting, not for anyone or anything.
But when the PARA Unit comes under attack, Ella and Eric both find themselves battling a supernatural beast that they never expected. Forced to join forces, to make a deal, Ella and Eric are soon fighting side-by-side, and their attraction for each other can’t be contained or controlled. Hot. Wild. Consuming. Ella’s deal with her devil is soon taking over her life.
And as Eric falls deeper and deeper under the mysterious Ella’s spell, his legendary control begins to crack. The beast that he has kept chained so carefully inside rises to the surface. Unfortunately, when the devil loses his control…there is real hell to pay.
"I'm finishing the mission. I'm following Ella, and I'm seeing just what she can lead me to."
Eric figured it would be a toss-up.
I devoured the latest installment of Cynthia Eden’s Purgatory series. I love the world the author has created for her amazing characters to live (and find love) within.
As leader of the FBI’s Para Unit, Eric Pate, makes a decision, issues an order and expects it to be followed without hesitation. However, his longstanding record of being unopposed is about to broken – along with his legendary control. Eric is unnerved by the protective instincts (and other emotions) that flare-up around the mysterious Ella.
Why the hell did he feel as if he’d just found something he’d lost?
Ella Lancaster was imprisoned and brutally tortured, nearly to death, by Keegan James. Recently freed she refuses to be confined…even if it for her own protection.
“Do you enjoy watching me?” Ella Lancaster asked as she stared into the one-way mirror.
Just watching. Day and night…watching…
Eric’s story was very different then I imagined. Considering his standoffishness I was not sure how his emotions/desire would be revealed. He was very rigid in the previous releases, even toward his step-sister, Holly. However, the author did a spectacular job of not compromising his character yet allowed him the ability to reveal his emotional state. I wish Ella had shown us more of her softer side – I enjoy a kick-ass heroine…with a hint of girly-girl.
