Devin Spawn is an outlaw.
Given away at birth by his father, Devin travels to his
father’s ranch to find out why. When he gets close, he comes
across a tiny, beautiful woman bathing in the river. Since he
has the devil inside of him, Devin does the one thing that
comes natural to him—he seduces and makes her his own. There
is one thing Devin doesn’t know. He has just had relations
with his stepmother.
Megan Spawn has had a tough
life. Rescued from a life of drudgery by her now deceased
husband, she wants to spend her life caring for her
stepdaughters and possibly being able to have a relationship
with the town doctor, her first love, Caleb Walker. That is,
until she is touched by the outlaw known as Devil’s Spawn.
Caleb Walker has loved Megan
ever since she was a little girl. When his family caught them
in the barn when they were teenagers and sent him away, Caleb
has despaired of ever being able to be with Megan. He loves
her and is willing to give her time. However, with the
arrival of Devin Spawn, time may be running out because it
seems that no matter how much Caleb loves her, she might not
be his for the taking.
Megan and Devin enter into a
carnal relationship like none before. Their coming together
is sensual and passionate. It is harsh and bold. But where
does Caleb fit into this equation? Caleb and Devin enter into
a pact. A pact where Caleb becomes part of the pair to make a
Devil’s Pact was a tough read. Fully expecting a ménage, I was
discomforted to have to wait for this to happen and when it
did, I found myself adoring Caleb but not really liking Devin
all that much. For all of Devin’s harsh ways, I wanted him to
someone treat Megan as more than just an outlet for his sexual
energy. I could see the chemistry between Megan and Caleb. I
could feel how much Caleb loved and cherished Megan and she
cared for him just as much. It was Devin’s feelings I had a
hard time with because I could never sense his love for her.
He desired her. He took her to subspace almost with his
intense sexual demands, but I couldn’t get to the bottom of
his feelings for her.
While I wished for more
tenderness from Devin, that doesn’t mean I didn’t care for Devil’s Pact. I did. It was just tough for me to read
because I wanted Devin’s characterization to be more like
Caleb’s and he wasn’t. But I like the premise of the
storyline and the setting was gorgeous. The battle between
Megan and the evil rancher next door was realistic and I could
see Devin coming to her rescue in my mind.
While Devil’s Pact wasn’t the tender and enchanting ménage that I have
grown used to reading, it still engrossed me cover to cover
and with the book being over 180 thousand words, that is
saying quite a lot. In all honesty, I didn’t put it down.
Samantha Cruise has written a ménage unlike any I have read
and I plan to read anything else she releases. She caught my
Devil’s Pact and I think she will hold it for a
