Not all pleasures are a sin...
Mina wants to put her seduction by a golden-eyed devil behind her, but the birth of her son, Jacques, renders that impossible. She tries to forget the only man who ever roused her passion, but when she notices her son exhibiting strange behavior—and less-than-human characteristics—she must face her past and learn to trust, and love, again.
Howling drunk, the one thing Remy clearly remembers is seducing Mina. A pity he didn’t think to get her address, especially since he marks her as his mate. When she disappears, he’s got plenty of time to regret, but he doesn’t get a chance to atone until she comes back into his life with an unexpected surprise.
Thrust into the role of father, Remy works to bond with his son while gaining forgiveness. But will he get the chance to truly make Mina his mate before danger threatens their fragile happiness?
Mated to the Devil is a “sitting-on-the-edge-of-your-seat” emotional roller-coaster read. I loved every minute of it, even the crying parts. Eve has totally out done herself on this one. This is not your typical Eve Langlais story or any PNR romance for that matter. This book takes on a lot of controversial subjects that some readers would rather not read. You have an interracial couple, a mating part that some would consider runs more along the lines of rape, then there’s the religion part with Mina's parents. It’s a shame some religious sectors can be the way they are and Eve describes Mina's parents' religion very well. I’m just glad Mina never got to meet her parents again. Anyhow, Eve takes you through the ups and downs as this couple first comes together and then falls apart, only to come together again. She describes all the happy and sad details very well as she makes your mind go to goo when she introduces Jacques to the story.
Mina ends up a strong heroine that will do anything to keep her loved ones safe, but Mina is in real need of love herself. She needs to feel needed and wanted on so many levels and she has no real clue how to get it. She fumbles a lot, but she never gives up and in the end she wins it all and more.
Remy learns from his mistakes very quickly and once he has Mina back he will do anything to keep her as his mate.
If you love action, emotions and a steamy romance with a HEA, then you need to add this story to the top of your to be read list.
