The Devil's Contract
by Claire Contreras.
Audience/Genre: Adult, Dark Contemporary Romance.
Publication: May 27th 2014.
He gave them a choice.

She took it.

He made her promise two years.

She should have known there was a catch.


Amara hung up the phone and clutched it tightly in her hand so that she wouldn’t throw it against the wall. Pushing her shoulders back, Amara walked over to Vivienne with a new purpose. She wouldn’t let her father or Philip have the last say in this. Amara slid back into the booth and picked up the papers again, this time skimming through each page and the fine print at the end. In short, it was a two-year contract that required her to be free of relationships. The words almost made her sob.
What would that mean for her and Colin? Would she have to give him up? Would he let her? Amara closed her eyes and took a deep breath, not wanting to think about that. The rest of it was simple: be on call, on time, dress in the required clothing, no sexual favors unless Amara agreed to them. Vivienne would provide a furnished apartment for her—clothing, food, and anything else she would need. The last stipulation in the contract was that she was not to get a job until her two years were up. Whatever money she made in the escort service, she would give to Philip, so she would essentially make no money. After her first three months, like in most jobs, she would be reevaluated and considered for a bonus, in which case she would keep some money.
Amara dropped the contract and buried her face in her hands. “I sort of have a boyfriend,” she said. Her hands muffled her voice, but she knew Vivienne could hear her.
“I know. Colin Wolfe. Son of Demetrius and Willa Wolfe. His father is the CEO of Wolfe Investment Group, along with a couple of other high profile companies.”
Amara screwed her eyes shut under her hands, appalled by it all.
“Does Philip know this as well?”
Vivienne laughed at her muffled question, and Amara dropped her hands and looked up at her amused face. “Philip knows everything about your life. Yes, he knows this.” She shook her head, as if she wanted to say more, but stopped herself from doing so.
“How can I just leave him?” Amara asked in a strained voice. Her heart hurt just thinking about it.
“Your graduation is next week. You have a job in Paris that has been offered to you. You cannot turn it down, and you think it’s better to cut ties now because you do not want to hurt him,” Vivienne said, fabricating the outrageous story in seconds.
Amara gaped at her. “I can’t tell him that. I can’t just lie to him.”
“You won’t be lying to him. You are going to Paris at the end of next week and will be gone indefinitely. When you are ready and well trained, we will bring you back to the States.”
She sucked in a breath at the mention of training for the job. Emotions swirled inside of her. Amara continued to smother the fear that threatened to seep through with the last ounces of courage she had left. Her mother —she needed to think about her mother. Amara had dreamed of going to Paris, but her dream had always included Colin. She thought about the cancerous tumor that was clouding her mother’s brain. The thought of a life without her in it was the only thing Amara needed to consider in order to come up with the same conclusion she had five years ago.
“But what about when this is over? I’ll have no job—“
