She calls it a devil’s bargain. I call it a deal she can’t refuse.
I was owed a debt.
And I expected payment.
One night in my bed.
One night, my rules, the debt cleared, and she could walk away.
There are worse things. And besides, debtors can’t be choosers.
The night started as it should. She obeyed as she should.
But then something happened. Something I was wholly unprepared for. And what I saw, it changed everything.
I broke my own rules after that. And I didn’t keep my end of the bargain.
Because walking away was no longer an option I could or would grant her, no matter the cost.

Oh my god! What an amazing 5 star story this was. I read this none stop until the last page. It was a dark romantic story, but not too dark. Just the way I love them. Natasha Knight write’s the best kind.
Hawk takes Melissa captive because her sister owes him money. He planned to sell her, that is until he sees this fiery women and wants her for himself.
This is a captivating and intriguing story. I read this in close to one sitting. A solid page turner that made me fall in love with these amazing characters. It’s somewhat of a darkish romance that was full of suspense. It was intriguing until the very end. Beautifully written with a seamless plot that kept on surprising me at every turn.
Standalone told in a dual POV with an HEA. I strongly recommend this story
Fast-paced, steamy, spicy, a little bit dark and suspenseful
If you follow my reviews, you KNOW how much I adore Natasha Knight's dark, twisted, sometimes gut-wrenching stories...she is one of my DARK QUEENS who never disappoints! Devil's Bargain is yet another stellar example of WHY I love her writing!
Hawk MacLeod....enigmatic, tough businessman, hardened by past experiences yet somehow still has the capacity to care, especially for one sassy, feisty, damaged heroine with a soft heart.
Melissa Doe...secretive, closed-off, terrified of being found by the monster(s) in her past yet strong-willed and still protective of those who don't deserve it.
Hawk and Melissa's story had me hooked from the prologue! Hawk appears to be a cold-hearted, tough-as-nails, arrogant man, but as the story unfolds, his many facets are slowly revealed...and let me just say that I fell HARD! Just like Melissa did!
There are dark elements in this surprisingly romantic read from an author who normally does more dark and gritty, with a side of romance! I thoroughly enjoyed this one, though! The darkness comes from the backstory for each of these characters, especially Melissa's...there were times where I wanted to jump in and do some serious damage to a few of the people in her past (you'll have to read the book to find out exactly WHO I'm referring to!)
All-in-all, this is a fast-paced, steamy (the sex scenes are HAWT), spicy, a little bit dark and suspenseful read that I would recommend to anyone!
Beautiful Dark Romance!
OMG! I loved it so much! Impossible to put it down before finish it! This story has it all! I love the characters, and the storyline. It's dark, mysterious, breathtaking, heartbreaking, and heartwarming afterward. Hawk and Melissa share a strong, and sizzling chemistry. Hawk is ruthless, alpha, powerful, dominant, but he is also very possessive and protective. Melissa is such a great character, broken, but strong, and gentle. They are great together. The supporting characters are also very interesting, and I would love to know more about them. The scenery is beautifully described. I love Natasha Knight writing, and this story is one of my favorites from her. I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book. If you like dark romance, you should love this one. Really! Now, I want it in audiobook!
