Deal with the Devil follows Luz Velez, a shapeshifter, who discovers she can't shift into her animal form. She panics when she tries to turn into a wolf, and because of this panic, her regular day-to-day life starts to be affected. The 27-year-old virgin is miserable, well, at least until she meets Jude Jacobson, the neighborhood vampire.
The blond vampire is dangerous and feared by everyone in town, but he wants Luz from the moment he sees her. Normally, Luz wouldn't date him, but he offers her a blood exchange; this exchange could help her control her panic attacks, so she can finally shift and have the life she wants. Of course, she takes him up on his offer, and that's where this romance novel gets spicy.
Deal with the Devil does have some references to past sexual abuse and trauma, but it is handled delicately to prevent it from becoming too dark. Readers can enjoy the romance that blossoms between the two characters, reminiscent of Romeo and Juliet, while they try to figure out a way to break the barriers of their respective breeds.
If you love a thrilling romance novel that gives you a juicy science-fiction theme to enjoy, Deal with the Devil is a great book to add to your collection.
