    Edge of your seat Excitement and Romance

    In Avenging Angel, we catch up with Jake several months after Gabe has rescued him and his sisters in Venice. Jake is now part of a FBI team trying to bring down the politician who helped frame Jake for murder. He's in Afghanistan when he sees a beautiful, blonde-haired American woman and rescues her from a gang of thugs. He knows she's an heiress, but doesn't let on when he realizes that her search for her missing fiance may be connected to his own mission. Under the guise of assisting her, they both dig for more information about her mysterious missing fiance (who she didn't love but is loyal to), and the attraction between them grows in the increasingly dangerous situations. The attraction was believable, and very, very sexy. Both Allison and Jake are great characters with depth and I really cared about what happened next. As with Guardian Angel, the action is intense and fast-paced and I could not put it down until I'd finished.

    (And I love the cover for Avenging Angel, because the guy reminds me of the actor Bruce Campbell, who I've had a secret crush on for years. I mean, who can resist the cheerful horror of his character in the Evil Dead movies, or his incredible performance as an aging Elvis in Bubba Hotep?! But I'm getting distracted. So.)

    Trouble!

    Here is a good quick read for those moments you can't finish regular novel. This novel has fights,romance, stolen gold and evil Powers That Be. The characters are very believable in a story that doesn't give a lot of time for personality development. If you want a good action book without the heavy graphics of most books today this is the book series for you.

    This story is about Jake after he's recovered from his injuries

    This story is about Jake after he's recovered from his injuries and cleared of his AWOL charges as you read from the first book.
    His sisters are currently hidden in a safe house as they continue to track down Congressman Wharton. 

    Jake meets Allison in Lahedeh who came looking for her missing fiancé. Now while I love Jake, I didn't love Allison as much.
    I thought it was a little far fetch to come all the way to Afghanistan looking for a fiancé whom she didn't love and feel for. Sure
    she felt obligated to find him but I just didn't really see the justification. No one in the right frame of mind barges into Afghanistan
    just like that. I thought her actions while trying to gather info were a little stupid and she was being stubborn for all the wrong reasons.

    Anyway just like Guardian Agent, this story was intense and packed with lots of actions. I was happy that at least Allison didn't get
    Jake injured or had the mission compromised. For this reason, I had to give this book 4 stars.

    I was gifted a copy in exchange for an honest review.
