BLURB: 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 meetsher.
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.
Review: Cold, callused, and always under control, Eric Pate to many stands on the edge as being on the side of the devil. Full of darkness, he does what he feels he must, to accomplish what needs to be done. Dealing dirty and breaking rules is something he never gives a second thought to. In charge of the PARA Unit, he has never allowed himself to feel peace,..that is until she came into his life.
Near death when she is rescued from her cage where she was being tortured, Ella, now finds herself in another cage under the protection of the PARA Unit and it’s director. Believing she is the last of her kind, she only wants her freedom until she is drawn to the very man that keeps her a prisoner and possibly could be the mate she has searched so long for.
Love this series, love the characters, plot, the excitement, suspense, danger,... the list goes on and on. I really enjoy how Eric’s personality is a bit twisted and some of the things he does isn’t what you find in a typical book hero. His thinking is different. His enter monster is just below the surface of his skin at times. Despite his marginal dark side, he also has a good side, that Ella brings forward in the story. This series is a winner. I can’t wait to read more.
