The angel Gabriel has given the fallen angel, Samael, a chance to get back in the good graces of God. All he has to do is be a guardian angel to a lost soul. Seeing it has a chance to get his "Ring of Chaos" back and Finn Payne's soul, Samael immediately takes the job. By presenting the lost soul, Faith McFarland, with what she desires most, her son's life, he has no problem swaying Faith to seduce and steal the ring from Finn. What Faith didn't count on was her instant attraction to Finn. Things are about to get more complicated. Finn has his own tribulations. He has to get the ring back otherwise he forfeits his soul to Samael. He too falls instantly in love with Faith but the ring is more important right now. If anyone can make me fall in lust with Satan, it is Garey. Granted the main story is centered on Faith McFarland and Finn Payne but with Samael pulling the strings and battling his own inner demons it proved to be a riveting read. I will definitely be picking up Garey's Nicki Styx's series which features Samael. Must read for paranormal romance readers!!show moreby Kelsey Opsahl
Terri Garey has taken a popular character from her Nikki Styx series and given him the starring role in her newest - The Devil's Bargain. Samael B Devine is the Prince of Darkness but that doesn't mean he does not mourn his impossible relationship with Nikki. Hurt and bitter he nevertheless responds to Gabriel's goading and promises happiness for Faith, a single mother whose son is dying from a brain tumour. In his own unique way, Samael manipulates Faith into a bargain promising to save her son at the return of a ring. Finn made his own bargain with the Devil as a teen and the Ring of Chaos he wears assures him of his successful rockstar career. When Faith steals it after a night of passion, Finn is as determined to save himself as he is to save her, from making the same mistake that damned his soul. Faith has always done the right thing but her prayers for her son's recovery have gone unanswered and her four year old son, Nathan, is dying from an aggressive brain tumour. To save his life, she succumbs to the Devils offer placing her in the path of Finn. It's insta-love PNR style, but romantic (and lustful) enough to satisfy. While naturally the storyline focuses on the relationship between Faith and Finn, Garey brings something a little different to the PNR genre, as Samael's storyline has almost equal billing. Even if you aren't familiar with his character from the Nikki Styx series you will find it intriguing. Garey has her own original take on the Underworld realm and the Devil's motivations. The Fallen has a heart after all it seems, and while he hasn't lost his taste for violence and mayhem, he is not entirely adverse to the possibility of redemption. Devil Without A Cause is a tempting start to a fresh new series from Terri Garey with the ultimate bad boy playing cupid. Sexy and sinful, it's a fun read for PNR fans.show moreby Shelley Cusbert
