Overview


Scarlett Fever by Christine Bell and Ella Dane
After five years in training, it's finally time for Scarlett Fever and her fellow superheroes to leave the United Superhero Academy and test their powers out in the real world. There's only one problem. She's been assigned to partner with arrogant, by the book, and irritatingly hot, Blade of Justice.
Blade's whole life has gone according to plan, and he's more than ready to move on to the big time, protecting a metropolis of his own. But his perfectly ordered life is derailed when he's teamed up with the fiery maverick, Scarlett Fever.
Sparks fly the moment they arrive in Plunketville, Oklahoma, as they each set out to force the other to request a transfer. They soon discover there's more going on in this single stop-sign town than blowing up mailboxes and cow tipping. If Scarlett can get Blade to listen to his gut, and he can teach her to use her head, they just might have a fighting chance.
Ironheart by Nico Rosso
Vince might be hard as steel, but he's not invincible. Not when iron touches him, especially in the hands of an evil minion. Not when Kara ran away after a whirlwind affair, just when he thought he might be falling in love. And definitely not when she returns, looking for his help.
The archvillain TechHead is coming for Kara and her superhero teammates, and he's determined to use their combined power to create the ultimate weapon. But Kara can't fight him alone. She needs Vince's brutal skill, though being with him means she risks losing her beloved secret identity, leaving her nowhere else to hide.
When TechHead makes a play to capture Kara, Vince has more to lose than just his heart. But he will do anything for the woman he loves, even if it means putting his heart on the line again.

Playing With Fire by Tamara Morgan
Fiona Nelson has always been one hot ticket--even before she took the conversion serum that gave her superhu¬man abilities. Fiona's powers come at a price: lack of human contact, or she won't be the only thing burning. When she loses control of her emotions, her fire powers run rampant... and she's hurt enough people already. Including herself.
But when the man behind her conversion returns to black¬mail her into helping him gain power, the only person she can turn to is Ian Jones, the man who broke her teenage heart. The man determined to expose the criminal known as Fireball, whose explosive escapades are just a little too close to Fiona's M.O.
Ian is convinced Fiona's dangerous, convinced she's Fire¬ball, and convinced he'll damn himself if he doesn't resist a heat that's always drawn him to Fiona like a moth to a flame--but Ian has his own secrets.

And he'll learn far too soon what happens when you play with fire.

From the Ashes by Adrien-Luc Sanders
Sociopath. Killer. Deviant. Monster, devoid of morals, incapable of human emotion. The villain known as Spark has been called that and more, and as a super-powered aberrant has masterminded count¬less crimes to build his father's inhuman empire.
Yet to professor Sean Archer, this fearsome creature is only Tobias Rutherford--antisocial graduate research¬er, quiet underachiever, and a fascinating puzzle Sean is determined to solve.
One kiss leads to an entanglement that challenges ev¬erything Tobias knows about himself, aberrants, and his own capacity to love. But when his father orders him to assassinate a senator, one misstep unravels a knot of political intrigue that places the fate of hu¬mans and aberrants alike in Tobias's hands. As danger mounts and bodies pile deeper, will Tobias succumb to his dark nature and sacrifice Sean--or will he defy his father and rise from the ashes to become a hero in a world of villains?

Meet the Author


Christine, her handsome hubby and four boys reside in Pennsylvania with their two dogs. In her spare time, she can be found reading just about anything, from YA novels to books on poker theory. She doesn't like root beer, clowns or bugs (except ladybugs, on account of their cute outfits), but lurrves chocolate, going to the movies and playing tennis. She enjoys writing fun, adventure-filled romance novels, but hopes to one day publish something her dad can read without wanting to dig his eyes out with a rusty spoon. Christine also writes erotic romance under the pen name Chloe Cole.

Nico Rosso is a writer of romance and adventure (inspired by his wife, Zoë Archer). He created the sci-fi world of the Limit War, taking readers into an intergalactic battle between planet-consuming aliens and the army that combats their spread. Turning his sights on home, Nico set off the apocalypse on the Burning Earth, where humans fight to survive against mutant Fire Eaters. In a joint effort with his wife, he is now working on a steampunk Western set in their shared world of the Ether Chronicles. And he's finally bringing to life all the superheroes he doodled in high school with the Heroes Guild. Inspiration comes from travel, daydreams, research and lightning bolts, so there's no telling where the next adventure will start. Visit Nico at: nicorosso.com

Adrien-Luc Sanders lives in Chicago with his husband, two cats, and enough mess for ten of each. He's a professional book editor, multicultural tribble, audiophile, cynic, occasional artist, child of the 80s, and socially awkward mess who never sleeps, keeps trying to quit his coffee habit, still chases fireflies, and is utterly obsessed with Kowloon Walled City. Although generally your average mild-mannered reporter, he has been known to transform into the literary version of Lewis Black with the right combination of sleep deprivation and sheer WTFery.

His Twitter addiction is second only to his gaming addiction, and he can often be found posting helpful writing, editing, and publishing tips on the #editortips hashtag. He finds his own name about as pretentious as describing himself in third person, prefers being called Adrien or Adri or that emo boy in the black nail polish, and loves when people drop by his blog, inbox, or Twitter just to say hi.

Tamara Morgan is a romance writer and unabashed lover of historical reenactments--the more elaborate and geeky the costume requirements, the better. In her quest for modern-day history and intrigue, she has taken fencing classes, forced her child into Highland dancing, and, of course, journeyed annually to the local Renaissance Fair. These feats are matched by a universal love of men in tights, of both the superhero and codpiece variety.

Tamara lives in the Inland Northwest with her husband and daughter. She can be found online at tamaramorgan.com or, much more often than is good for her, on Twitter at @Tamara_Morgan.

    Love Superhero Books!

    This is a new adult superhero book. All the stories take place right after college or a few years after. My favorite was Scarlett Fever. I took one star off because I didn't really like the characters in Playing with Fire. The story was great, I became absorbed in it, but I didn't like the characters as people. I also felt the ending was abrupt. Maybe a sequel is coming? I checked the author's website but but I didn't see anything to hint at a continuation. I need closure. Loved everything else and I'll watch for that sequel.
