Spotlight & $20 Gift Card Giveaway ~ IN HIS KEEPING by T.J. Adams



In His Keeping (The Deal of Souls, #1)
by: T.J. Adams
Series: The Deal of Souls
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Released: January 6, 2016


At eighteen, Elise Duxten must end her life. Her younger sister, Marly, lies dead because of her. To pay for her crimes she sell’s her soul to the devil in exchange for her sister’s life.

Matrix, King of the crossroads, the Devil’s right hand man for the last twenty years, is willing to make the deal, eager for another pawn. To sweeten the exchange he gives her one year to mourn her decision before he takes her for good.

In that year he's determined to torment her, driven by envy at the strength in her soul. Though having lived years apart, the same heartless man, Manx Sloazan, destroyed their lives.

With her remaining life, Elise must teach her sister to live without her and find the courage to say goodbye. It won't be easy. Sloazan is determined to make Elise pay for a bungled drug sale and Matrix wants to torture her soul. Or does he?

With Elise, Matrix has discovered something he thought he'd lost. His heart. But he is the devil's, without the ability to choose. When the time comes, will he be prepared to let her go in order to save her soul? Or will the Devil make sure he gets what is his due?


He grabbed my wrist and brought it up. The fire of his touch made me cry out in pain. His other hand appeared from behind his back. In it a blade, its length designed for torture. He held it by the long handle, fisted as if to kill, but inched it downward with the speed of a snail.
I froze. My words lodged in my throat. Not even a scream was thin enough to make it through.
The blade touched my wrist. The cold iced my flesh, as his fire had seared straight through. A sharp sting followed the cut as he drew the blade down, tracing a line along my vein. The throb began soon after. Wet ran in trails over the edge of my arm, dripping onto the gravel. When he was done, he raised his hand. I became mesmerized in terror, my eyes following the arc of the blade, as it swung into the air, the stain of my blood, black in the moonlight. High up on the handle, close to the blade, a green stone glowed, it’s luminescence swirling like green fire. I watched the blade vanish like an image from a nightmare fading upon awakening. I would never awaken. My nightmare would become my day.
As slowly as he’d lowered the blade, he lowered his head. The chill of his tongue pierced my wound, as he licked the line of the cut, sealing the wound, taking my pain.
He lifted his head and looked me in the eye, but in the night his eyes were black pits—I saw nothing but death. His lips burned their mark on mine. His tongue, ice cold, penetrated my warm mouth, freezing me inside. I breathed in the taste of my blood and thought only of hell. He commanded my compliance with a hand at the back of my head and another around my waist. A deep devouring kiss that stole my mind and body, burning the girl and replacing her with a slave.
He broke the kiss moments later and backed away, one, two, three paces, and more. He began to disappear into the darkness taking the shadows with him. Only his voice lingered.
“You’re mine, Elise.”
