Compact with the Devil by Bethany Maines

Laura Croft, Tomb Raider, has nothing on Nikki Lanier...

Simon & Schuster sent me an eGalley of this book for review (thank you).  It will be published in trade paperback at the end of April.

Nikki works for the Carrie May Foundation.  The Foundation has a front as cosmetics firm, but it's really a group of women mercenaries.  They have varying skills, there are international branches, and they go where they are needed.

Ms. Maines has written a story that rivals men's adventure novels.  There's lots of action, the story flows well, and the plot is intertwined in many interesting ways.  She also throws in a romance in trouble and gives Nikki a new love interest to complicate the issue, so the story isn't boring.

I enjoyed this read a lot.  Nobody follows the rules, the girls are rough and ready for action, and the tangled web unfolds slowly.  I read it in one evening.  Why not get yourself a copy in April and go on the same wild ride?

Happy reading!
