Publisher's Summary

I hunt demons. 

I don’t work for them. 

And I promised my mom one thing before she was murdered: Under no circumstances would I ever go near the high demons. 

But I’ll break that promise over and over again if it helps me avenge her death. 

When my only lead turns to ash in the middle of demon territory, I’m suddenly a dead witch walking. Violence in Samael’s club is an automatic death sentence…unless he can use you. 

And it turns out that the most powerful demon in the country has a use for little ol’ me. 

Demons are being slaughtered. His demons. And as a bounty hunter, it’s up to me to find out who would dare hurt his people. 

I’ve got two weeks to find the killer, and if I fail, I’m bonded to Samael. Forever. 

Samael’s certain that I’ll be his, but I’m not the kinda girl who risks her freedom for a demon. 

I’m the kinda girl who won’t let anyone get in the way of her vengeance—not even the Machiavellian control freak who thinks he can run my life.

The problem? I’ve pissed the wrong people off.

Now I’m the one being hunted, and someone’s coming for me with everything they have.

But I’m never more dangerous than when my back is up against the wall.

And I’m ready to come out swinging.

♥ If you like K.F Breene, Ilona Andrews, Patricia Briggs, Faith Hunter, Laurell K. Hamilton, Jennifer Estep, Shannon Mayer, Kim Harrison, and Dannika Dark, you’ll love this series. The Deals with Demons world includes the fae, demons, mages, werewolves, witches, and more.♥

Phenomenal Debut! Anxiously awaiting the rest.

I have read and listened to countless novels in this genre. There are so many with near zero substance to them or the writing that is flat out bad or the ones you start reading with extreme interest only to be grossly disappointed with some meek heroine and a crashing storyline.
THIS IS NOT THAT!
I came across it while looking for books of interest and now the author has become a "one-click author".
This book has everything I could ask for in a story.
I got my strong heroine who is not a Marvel hero. She has her weaknesses and her strengths. She is relatable in her feelings around her world and enviable in her actions. I got my swoon-worthy bad boy who would do anything for the heroine.
I got my fantastic storytelling and world-building with an adventure that kept me glued to my Kindle and Audible.
This is an epic love story that weaves itself around your senses and ensnares you all the while rooting for the demon who will win the heroine's heart.
There are a total of 5 books in this series with additional books for side characters in the works.
This is a completed series if you're interested in reading it on KU (Kindle Unlimited).
The fifth book which will be released later this month (06/22) will be about Vasago. He is one of the demons in Samael's circle who becomes besties with the heroine - Danica.
It is a slow burn, non-RH, urban fantasy, no MM series.
Within the series as a whole, there is violence, killings, sex, bloody battles, and kidnapping. I hope this helps those of you who look for trigger warnings.
Overall, you'll probably find my reviews of this book everywhere because it has become my go-to in a book slump and I notice details each time I read/listen.
I really liked Amanda Leigh Cobb as Danica. I was not as pleased with her personification of the rest of the characters only because I couldn't discern most of the males from each other. I think this would have been an even better Audible book with dual narration.

Great Series so far

Love this series so far. Love the dynamic between the main characters. She doesn’t put up with Samuels crap which is nice!

A demonic good time.

I have to say that this book gives me KF Breene vibes. It also puts me in mind of Nalini Singh Archangels Guild series. I was so happy to stumble upon this. Totally recommend if you are a fan of either of the above.

Scratched that paranormal romance itch just right

Love the main female lead - she is saucy, a badass, and very lovable. Loved the slow-simmer romance and her main squeeze sam, and the narrator was perfect. Very excited to get into the rest of this series

I’ll bite…

This story of the high demon and his little with bounty Hunter works for me. I’m sold on the series.

Love this series!!!

I just loved the world building and the action/romance ratio. I like to see a strong heroine with a strong hero gradually breaking down her walls. The relationship is also a little more reality based and not just love at first sight. There's just the right amount of mystery and humor mixed in as well.
I have all the books on kindle as well and I love to go back to this series when I'm not ready to start something new. This series has definitely helped my TBR collection grow, because I just can't get enough!

Didn’t finish

I simply hate romances where the balance of power is so uneven between the two main characters & the male manipulates the female ‘for her own good’. I guess I’m just not a fan of male dominance romances. I got within an hour of finishing the book and just couldn’t take it anymore.
