Can Ramón and Marcia overcome past trauma and choose the future? Clint knows it’ll be a struggle. But when Ramón steps up to become the Dom he was meant to be, and Marcia submits so sweetly, he knows they have a shot at their own happy ending. 
Ramón has never done this—mixing his personal life with a case. He didn’t believe Clint or Christopher Lyons, owner of the BDSM club The Lyon’s Den, when they’d told him he was a Dom down to his bones. But as he learns what that means, he finds a hope he never dared to embrace. 
Can he let go of the need for vengeance that he has clung to all his adult life? Can he reach for the future in the form of a ménage family? And when a wanted criminal makes a desperate move, will he and his new brother Clint be able to reach their woman in time?
Note: This book contains double penetration.




Review
Marcia has been to the depths of hell and with the help of Ramón she begins to see light. But are the feelings she has for him because he saved her or something more? And what about the tingles Clint gives her? Has she finally become the whore her uncle called her?
Avenging Angel by Cara Covington is the first in a spin-off of the Lusty, Texas series. While it can be read as a standalone, it would be best read after Love Under Two Loners for background.
Ramón’s entire adult life has been focused on vengeance that is until he meets Marcia. He finds her in deplorable conditions but sees the fire beneath even if she doesn’t. I love that he cares for Marcia even as he struggles with the emotions she brings out in him. Marcia is not what he expected and he is positive he isn’t what she needs. But with the help of friends, both old and new, he can learn. Speaking of new friends, I love Clint. He provided a balance both Ramón and Marcia needed. I loved that while Clint had more experience in the dom/sub lifestyle, Ms. Covington gave us someone who did not lord that over Ramón or Marcia. I loved how seamlessly Clint and Ramón fit to fulfill Marcia’s needs. Ms. Covington gives us a story that is well written. The characters are complex and real. I loved that Ms. Covington brought fan favorites into this world, which added to but didn’t overwhelm this world. I can’t wait to see who she decides to give a happy ever after to in this new world of The Lyon’s Den.
