A Good Year (Unhallowed Love Book 1)
by Tara Fox Hall
February 7, 2017
172 pages

Genre: Paranormal Romantic Suspense
Faced with losing Pandora Productions as well as her best friend Rebecca to the smarmy Paul, savvy film executive Debbie makes a pact with the demon Shaker, agreeing to bind herself to him as his human master in return for killing Paul and securing Pandora’s future. Yet even as Pandora gains accolades and renown, Debbie’s strong resolve begins to crumble under the weight of her actions. And the pleasure she finds in Shaker’s arms is becoming more than sex. Is Debbie doomed to lose her heart as well as her soul to a demon who has only been waiting for the chance to claim both?

“I never asked you to kill anyone,” Debbie said defensively. “I never asked you to—”

“You asked me to save your company, and I’ve done it,” Shaker shouted, the boom of his voice shaking the room like a small earthquake. He loomed over her. “What did you think was going to happen? I’m a demon out of Hell! What did you think I would do when you unleashed me on your enemies?”

“These are human beings—”

“Who matter as much as insects splattered on a windshield,” Shaker snarled. “Humans are just another species who think that they are superior to all others…a prevalent notion in all evolved creatures. They are not.” He stared down at her. “You are not superior to me, Mistress.”

Debbie looked up at him with tear-filled eyes. “But I am human. How do I know you won’t hurt me, too, Shaker?”

“Honestly?” he said gruffly, his expression softening. “You don’t. But the same could be said of any human man you know, Mistress.” He leaned in closer, tilting his head. “And I kiss better than most.”

Debbie didn’t know what to do when the demon’s lips met hers. She leaned back involuntarily, but Shaker just leaned forward farther, his lips pressing hers. His kiss was nothing like she’d expected it to be: not brutally strong, or too hot, or even too provocative. It began as a chaste kiss; gentle, languid, warm, with just a hint of passion to come if the merest sign was given. The longer it went on, the hotter Debbie got, the urge to open her mouth growing each moment. Just as she gave in and relaxed into Shaker’s embrace, he pulled back from her, ending the kiss, his red eyes staring into hers, his desire mirroring her desire.

  1. Love the cover of A Good Year, made me want to find out more about the book.

    1. Thanks Anne, I had to have that cover model, he made a perfect Jett Black :D

  2. Thanks very much for the coming review! Readers, the kindle version of the book Promise Me is available for free download off Amazon: Reviewers, if you are interested in reviewing audiobooks, you can apply for free codes for all of my audiobooks on! Enjoy!

  3. The covers are hot. I know it relates but I'm not sure I care for the number above.

    1. Hi Victoria, I confess, 6 three times bothers me enough I prefer not to write it, and one of the reasons I don't give out a number of 6$ Amazon cards, but instead give one and add a "0" so its not the infamous #. I'm as surprised as anyone that being a Christian I was led to write a series about demons, but I have found that I enjoy showing what happens when you make a deal with a demon...and how a tough career woman who originally thought that the ends always justified the means comes to discover that she has her own ethical limits, even for a being she loves. I hope yu enjoy the books!

  4. Nice covers and I liked the descriptions of the books.

    1. Thanks Sharon :) I hope you enjoy them! Good luck in the contest!
