Romance Suspense

THERE IS NO DEVIL is the second of Sophie Lark’s Sinners Duet. Following where THERE ARE NO SAINTS left off with Cole and Mara continuing their highly emotional relationship.

Cole is learning to be happy, but he knows that happiness is going to come to a screeching halt if his nemesis, Alastor Shaw, the real Beast of the Bay, has his way. He tried to kill Mara and he wants to destroy Cole through her. Especially knowing that the cold-hearted Cole has found love.

Now a successful artist and the muse that Cole needed, Mara is more than ready to throw off her past and move forward. Too bad, the Beast, wants to ruin everything for them. But, in their time together, Cole and Mara weren’t just burning the sheets, they were both learning. She to understand his way of life and he to learn hers.

THERE IS NO DEVIL wraps up the romance of Cole and Mara in an unexpected and twisted way, with some people getting what they deserve. Alastor has been after Cole since they were in college and Cole finally realizes, after learning to care for someone, that it was Alastor who began his killing streak back then. As Cole learns the truth, readers will also learn about a number of mysterious deaths. With the Beast’s continued threat to Mara, Cole is willing to use his talent to end his enemy once and for all.

The finale of the Sinner's Duet, THERE IS NO DEVIL is an intriguing twist that though maybe not expected, was somewhat warranted for Mara. After all, she learned from the best.
