When the man in black appears before him, Shane is not only surprised that the story of the crossroads demon is true, but that the demon is the most gorgeous man he has ever met. A deal is made between Shane and the demon named Dantalion. His dreams of being a rock god have come true and he begins to learn what it really means to be famous.

But when the powers that be find out about his unwarranted deal with Shane, they take the contract from Dantalion and forbid him to ever make contact with Shane again.

Review: I have always loved to read stories by Maggie so when this came out I had to grab it. It caught my attention from the start but I have to tell you that I was not sure if I was going to like it after the first few pages. It comes off a bit strange, but then I remembered that it was the stores from the crossroads demon.
Dantalion and Lucifer had gone against god and were sent to underworld. They were to make deals with humans and take their souls after a certain amount of time. What they had not known was that if they found true love, then they would be allowed back to heaven. When a sexy little man not only started asking him questions about his soul should he choose but there was just something about Shane that pulled at him. He might just be seeing love for real.
Shane is one hell of singer but he wanted the final package. He wanted to be a star, and in turn decided to sell his soul for that gift. Fifteen years to have his dream come true, but he had not realized was that his dream was Dantalion.
There is a darkness to this story with a serious tone to it. It lapses over the human’s life time not really giving you a true story it would seem. Just a taste of what could be or not be for the guys. You get more about Dantalion then you do Shane which is a bit off to me, but it turns out in the end that you see the love. Which for me doesn’t really rock the way I wanted it to but the story still turned out to be damn good.
I can’t wait to read the next story.
