Blush sensuality level: This is a sweet romance (kisses only, no sexual content).

“I never should have gone to The Purgatory Bar. That’s what started it all.”

Having worked her way through the Heavenly ranks, Porsche’s recently been promoted to Guardian Angel—and if she’d known what trouble lay ahead, she would have stayed in Dream Central.

She’s lost a soul. Well…not lost, per se. Technically it was snatched by a demon, but on Porsche’s watch. With mankind’s faith at an all-time low and Lucifer making a move to buy controlling interest in Heaven Inc., this couldn’t have happened at a worse time. Porsche’s determined to battle every succubi, satyr and she-devil in Hades—and possibly a traitor in Heaven—if that’s what it takes to get Alex Chalmers’ soul back.

And if the handsome human wishes to thank her…there has to be some perk to the job.

Publisher’s Note: This story was previously published elsewhere under the title Guardian Angel and has been revised for Ellora’s Cave.


The premise of this book sounded so intriguing.  I've read books by this author before and have really enjoyed them, so when I saw this title, I jumped on it.  But Avenging Angel didn't quite hit the spot for me.  The writing is great, easy to read with a good flow, but the story didn't cut it for me.  I wasn't fully involved with the heroine; I didn’t meet much of a connection with her.  Porsche finds herself in a very bad predicament, the story is written in the first person.  The story is a sweet romance, which is a nice change.

Avenging Angel is full of action, fun, and a bit of romance.
