Tina made a pact with the devil seven years ago. It’s time to pay the piper—or die.
Independent to the nth degree, Tina meets everything in her life head-on—except love. When an almost-forgotten pact with the devil returns to haunt her, Tina knows she has to go back to the Andes to face her doom.
Caught between misgivings and need, she signs on as team doctor for one of Craig’s expeditions. Though he was once the love of her life, she pushed him away years before to keep him safe. Even if he doesn’t love her anymore, there’s still no one she’d rather have by her side in the mountains.
Trapped in a battle of life and death, passion flares, burning hot enough to brand their souls.
Review: Tina awakes in her bed to a voice from seven years ago, the one who saved her from near death after she promised to return to "him" in exchange for saving her. She gave up her future, fearing that she would not have one if she had to fulfill her promise. Determined to fight for her life from the voice of a fallen god-like creature atop the mountain, she returns and has to face her former lover in order to reach the ill-fated mountaintop.
While on her trip she reveals the truth to Craig who believes her, knowing she would never make up such a crazy story. He helps her summon other gods to get out of her bargain and has to risk himself during the ordeal. Tina realizes that no matter how much she has tried to get away from her feelings for Craig, those feelings still remain for both of them and together they find the courage and strength to fight off her demon savior.
Their reward -- each other for eternity.
This story was a short, easy read...much like a novella. The couple already shared a past so their romance was already there and they just had to come to grips with their feelings that never went away. Craig believes Tina's crazy story and is willing to sacrifice himself for her. Fortunately, they didn't have to suffer too much to get their HEA.
