Faith McFarland’s son is sick. Terminally sick. She is so desperate for her son’s healing that she makes a pact with the Devil. The deal is to steal a ring. And, to do that, she needs to use seduction. The ring is being worn by Finn Payne. He’s a rock star, who has also made his own pact with the Devil. Finn also needs the ring as it helps him to stay sane. Of course, there’s a little thing called love that enters into the equation and Finn is mightily disappointed to find out that Faith seduced him to steal his ring. Now, can he persuade her to give it back, even if it means a little boy’s life? Can Faith save her son, even if it means to give up love?
I must say that I am usually a bit leery of stories involving devils, archangels and the such, but this one just swept me off my feet! The Devil is a character named Sammy Devine and the archangel, Gabriel seems to think he is redeemable and so gives him the job of being Faith’s guardian angel. Sammy is a character you will really like even though he is the Devil. I was quite taken with him and hope that he will also have a happy ending of his own. I loved this premise and I really enjoyed reading this book. There is just the right amount of action, romance and humor to keep you totally captivated. This is a hard-to-put-down book so I recommend you block off a good afternoon or a whole evening, settle down with your favorite drink and snack and get into this great book. You won’t be disappointed!
