Deal with the Devil


 This was one phenomenal book!! I fell in love with this series
 from book one. I have been waiting for Eric Pate's Story.
 I have to say I am truly thrilled with this outcome. I can not say
 much as I do not want to spoil the story for you. But I think 
Ella is the perfect match for him. Eric is always so in control 
of his emotions, so much so they all think he has ice in his 
veins. Well Ella brings out that fire and melts that ice. When 
she dose it is explosive, and completely hot. She has waited 
for a long time to find her mate, and now she has found Eric. She knows he's not human but is he like her. She feels 
something in him, but she is afraid to hope. 
It has been so long waiting for him.
 I am was so thrilled with this book I read it twice. If you have 
not read the series get all the books. You will absolutely love them.

I hope you enjoy this book I know I did.
If you do like this book, please consider leaving a review.
The Authors really like it when you let them know,
they value your opinions too.

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 hell to pay.

“Have you looked long enough?” he asked. His voice was a 
deep, dark rumble. Sexy.

She didn’t want to find anything about her jailer to be sexy. 
This attraction she had to him—it was odd.  Unwanted.

But…there.  Instinctive.  Primal.  Even her heart was already 
beating faster, and not just because she thought escape was 
at hand. Because he was close, and he stirred her.

Ella lowered her hand away from the glass.  She was going 
to try logic with him first. She’d plead her case.  
Perhaps that tactic would work.

And perhaps not.

“You’ve had plenty of time to look at me,” Ella murmured. 
“I suppose I thought it was only fair for me to have the same 

His jaw hardened. Just a small movement, but she saw it and 
Ella liked that she’d gotten to him.

“Did you think I didn’t know?  I could feel it when you were 
close.”  She motioned toward the mirror, then toward the 
video camera mounted near the ceiling. “I think this was all a 
bit…much, don’t you?  I mean, I’m locked in. It’s not as if 
I can plot some terrible wickedness here.”

“You can plot it,” he allowed, “you just can’t carry it out.”

Ella took a step closer to him.

He offered her his hand. “It’s time we were officially 
introduced. My name is Eric Pate, and I’m in charge of the 
FBI’s Para Unit.”

She stared at his hand.

The Para Unit. There had been whispers about that group for 
years.  Government agents who policed the creatures that 
went bump in the night.  According to the gossip she’d heard, 
if a supernatural got on the wrong side of the Para Unit, well, 
that supernatural found his—or her—butt tossed into 

Is Purgatory real? 

Ella was very much afraid that it was.

“I don’t bite,” Eric murmured. His hand was still offered 
toward her.

“No.”  Ella cleared her throat. “I think that’s my deal.” 
Because she didn’t want to show him her fear, she put her 
hand in his.


Her breath caught in her throat.  And, yes, she still breathed. 
Her heart still beat, she could still feel pain and pleasure. 
Despite the tales heard by so many, paranormals were still 
alive.  They could hurt, they could feel…just like humans.

Ella had thought that the man before her was cold.  
Emotionless.  After all, a darkness seemed to cling to him like 
a shroud, but when they touched—fire seemed to ignite in 
her hand. Her heart beat even faster, nearly racing out of 
control.  Her breasts ached, as if wanting, needing a lover’s touch.  

She tried to pull away.

But his hand tightened around hers. She could feel the 
strength in that hand.

“Is something wrong?”

Yes, you’re what’s wrong! The man before her was far from 
human, no matter what he wanted to pretend. And she 
should not be reacting to him that way.   His scent wasn’t 
human. It was just slightly…off.  Everything about him was, 
yet she was still feeling that pull between them.
