Cover Reveal: The Devil's Contract by Claire Contreras

When the sign up for this reveal showed up in my inbox, after reading the synopsis, it was automatic, no questions asked. It sounds so good and... the intrigue, aahh! I mean, the synopsis is only about four sentences long but it says so much yet not enough... which is like, perfect! It hooked me hard!

Also, the cover itself, aahh! When I got it in my inbox yesterday afternoon, I was blown away! I think it conveys the title straight to a tee and it just fits so well! Needless to say, I'm super stoked and excited to be helping out in today's reveal for The Devil's Contract!

Without further ado...

He gave them a choice.

She took it.

He made her promise two years.

She should have known there was a catch.

Excerpt from The Devil's Contract:

As Amara stepped out of the car, a shiver ran through her. She felt eyes on her, and looked around quickly as she held on to Colin’s hand a little harder.

“You okay?” he asked, looking down. He placed one hand on the small of her back as he held her other one.

“Yeah...” she said slowly, still scanning the street.

The neighborhood his apartment building was in was definitely safe, but in that moment she felt anything but.

“You’re overworking yourself. I don’t understand why you won’t let me—“ Colin went on about that, as he usually did, but Amara was too distracted to argue with him.

Her eyes wandered to the building beside them, where she saw a group of people in dress clothes getting into a limousine, and that’s when she saw him. Philip. Amara’s heart lurched to her throat so quickly, she thought she was going to faint. She saw him around all the time, and he was always watching, always waiting. Amara always wondered when the day would come, but Philip never gave anything away. He just watched.

Philip was dressed in a tuxedo, standing beside a woman in a red dress. They were looking at Amara, scrutinizing her as they exchanged words. Philip had a glass cup in his hand, which he raised as if to salute her.

Amara felt her knees giving out beneath her.

“Sweetheart, you’re scaring me,” Colin said. He stopped walking and faced her, holding both of her arms. Amara was still looking in Philip’s direction, and Colin’s eyes followed. He gave Philip a small wave, he’d met him a couple of times in parties and saw him around the neighborhood often.

“Is everything all right?” Colin asked, his voice full of concern.

Amara nodded, looking into Philip’s icy blue eyes. “Yeah, everything’s fine,” she whispered. “Just fine.”

See? Even after reading the synopsis, the intrigue just gets bigger bigger bigger! I wanna know! I mean, it's probably very obvious (or not) but... man, I just really need this book!

So, what do you all think of the cover? More so, what do you guys think of the synopsis, the excerpt, the book as a whole? Lol! Let me know your thoughts and feels in the comments below!
