Deal with the Devil is Orphan Black meets the post-apocalyptic Avengers by USA Today and New York Times bestselling author duo Kit Rocha.

Nina is an information broker with a mission--she and her team of mercenary librarians use their knowledge to save the hopeless in a crumbling America.

Knox is the bitter, battle-weary captain of the Silver Devils. His squad of supersoldiers went AWOL to avoid slaughtering innocents, and now he's fighting to survive.

They're on a deadly collision course, and the passion that flares between them only makes it more dangerous. They could burn down the world, destroying each other in the process...

Or they could do the impossible: team up.

This is the first book in a near-future science fiction series with elements of romance.

Review of 'Deal with the Devil' on 'Goodreads'

4 stars

"It got quiet. Are you guys dead or making out?"

This was a fun, easy, guilty pleasure (ha) read. Romance isn't normally my jam, but I really liked the mercenary librarian aspect. Being a kickass information broker in a dystopian sci-fi America setting is super appealing, I'm not gonna lie. The setting was compelling, and the dialogue was snappy and fitting. The book does a good job being what it is.

The romance aspect isn't very organic, but when is it ever in romance books? The author goes to great lengths describing how hot all the main characters are, and then they hook up because, well, they're hot and that's just what hot people do, right? The relationships feel stilted and forced, but that's probably a personal opinion from someone outside the target genre lovers.

I won a free copy of this ARC through Goodreads Giveaways.
