Rachel Armstrong has a burning need to right the world’s wrongs…



Rachel Armstrong has a burning need to right the world’s wrongs. Thus, she becomes the Avenging Angel.

And maybe she’s a bit too cocky about it.

While riding a hunch about the identity of a kidnapper, she runs into Julien “Cap” Jackson, who was trained by the team at Nightingale Investigations in Denver. Now he’s a full-fledged member at their newly opened Phoenix branch.

It takes Cap a beat to realize Raye’s the woman for him. It takes Raye a little longer (but just a little) to figure out how she feels about Cap.

As Raye introduces Cap to her crazy posse of found family and his new home in the Valley of the Sun, Cap struggles with his protective streak. Because Raye has no intention to stop doing what she can to save the world.

But there’s a mysterious entity out there who has discovered what Raye is up to, and they’ve become very interested.

Not to mention, women are going missing in Phoenix, and it seems like the police aren’t taking it seriously.

Raye believes someone should.

So she recruits her best friend Luna, and between making coffees, mixing cocktails, planning parties and enduring family interventions (along with reunions), the Avenging Angels unite to ride to the rescue.

“Can I borrow this?” Harlow, lounging across my bed, holding up my new Fendi, asked.

“I haven’t even used it yet,” I told her from where I was, standing by my wall, waiting to continue our briefing.

“After you use it,” she amended.

“Girl, she got that shopping with her dad for the first time in eight years. Not even,” Jessie replied instead of me. Then she, sitting cross-legged on the edge of my bed with Patches purring in the nest of her lap, announced to the room at large, “I need a cat.”

“You barely remember to feed yourself, how are you going to remember to feed a cat?” Harlow returned.

“I remember to feed myself,” Jess shot back.

As far as I could tell, Jessie existed on coffee and whatever struck her fancy at QuikTrip, and that was more about their massive beverage station, snacks were an afterthought.

This was why Jessie was slim and had a B-cup (maybe).

Whatever she ate, it gave her thick, glorious chestnut hair a healthy gleam. With her blue eyes and the olive tone to her skin, she’d be a way better Kelly Garrett than me.

Harlow, on the other hand, had light-brown hair (with highlighted hues of honey) and dark-brown eyes, a wholesome Jennifer Garner thing going on, and she had a bombshell figure (like Luna and me, but whereas Jess was Luna’s height, Harlow was an inch shorter than me).

Jessie had the personality of a goth on a good day, and the wardrobe to match. She didn’t go the thick-eyeliner and pale skin route (the latter part of that was due to genes, the former part due to good fashion sense), but most everything she wore was black, with some white, red or neutrals thrown in so it wouldn’t get boring.

Harlow had the personality of a cheerleader, also with the wardrobe to match. She was all about babydoll dresses, bows, ruffles and perfecting the art of wearing a ton of makeup and looking like she wasn’t wearing a stroke.

I had no idea how they were besties, I just knew it worked.

We’d already ascertained they were in to be Angels. Considering their level of crazy matched, and sometimes surmounted Luna’s and mine, I shouldn’t have been surprised what an easy sell it was. They didn’t so much as blink when we told them what we’d been up to, nor when we gave them the lowdown on “We” and asked them to become Angels.

We didn’t even need Fireball and pinkie swears (but we did it anyway, with Jessie rolling her eyes and looking about ready to hurl, and Harlow giggling).

So we had shit to do.
