Overview

Superhero Romance and Adventure Like You've Never Seen Before!

Can love blossom when a touch is deadly?

Sometimes a superhero is just too powerful to enjoy life. But Londo (Valiant) Rand's foes have temporarily blasted away his powers, leaving him to outrun a mercenary army across an otherwise deserted South Pacific island— accompanied by a beautiful woman, Lina O'Kelly. If they're lucky they can reach safety until Londo's powers return.

But Londo doesn't want those powers back, not yet. This is the one day in his life he'll be able to touch someone without the potential of accidentally tearing them to shreds. Too bad that psychic Lina is acutely phobic to touch. What the world's greatest superhero asks for is what she's unable to give.

Can they escape terrorists, gales and ghosts to find haven? If they should fall deeply in love, how will they cope when Londo's powers return and he's too strong to hold Lina in his arms?

Two books in one!

The original Touch of Danger has been combined with Star-Crossed to bring you a larger adventure in one volume. Now the story reaches out to the stars and other worlds. Londo's life hangs by a thread. Are Lina's psychic healing techniques enough to save him, or will she need the help of unearthly science—and a beautiful alien man's powers?

Lina begins to understand just how dangerous it is to get close to the galaxy's most famous hero. Even his friends are plotting against her. Can she make Londo realize that all this can't possibly work? Even above her own heart, she must protect his.

Editorial Reviews

InD'Tale Magazine - Nicole Duke
"...Once Lina and Londo get past their initial hangups and the real bad guys show up, the intensity level kicks up a notch or ten. Loads of goofy humor and a compelling romance keep the story interesting, and a slew of captivating and sometimes creepy secondary characters made for a riveting conclusion to this superhero story."

Meet the Author

When you think of strong women and strange worlds, think Carol A. Strickland.

Although born in a small town in Illinois noted for its Nineteenth Century demonic possession cases, Carol claims that all those voices inside her head are a result of having stories to tell and books to write. Even so, her strange devotion to and study of Wonder Woman would seem to indicate an abby-normal brain.

A one-time comics letterhack and outspoken member of various comics message boards, Carol has found herself the basis for two comic book villains (at times her opinions have not been taken well by the books' creators) (both villains were soundly thrashed) (and both, for some perverse reason, were male) and had one superhero wear her costume design. (Light Lass!)

Carol has also become an award-winning painter. Along with her writing, she exercises this skill in her secondary hours (both of them) as she waits for the lottery to free her 9-to-5 time to more fulfilling pursuits.

    It was a good book for paranormal romance. Heroine was pretty cheesy, but all in all it wasn't bad.

    Confused

    The premise was good but it went downhill from there. The heroine was annoying and the plot muddled and it just wandered about. There was a villianess (we never meet) and a few bad guys to overpower but the story just wallowed in the heroine's angst and never really got off the ground (the hero's flying, aside).
    I won't be sampling anymore from this author.
    Not recommended.

    I liked it... not your typical paranormal romance.

    I liked the main story line and Londo, the female character got on my nerves a little bit. But overall I enjoyed it. I liked the concept of super heros versus vampires and werewolves. I didnt really get into the whole touchy feely new age stuff that the female charachter was into, but it was interesting to read about. Again it just made it different than the typical paranormal romance. If your looking for something different but enjoyable try it out.

    Didn't even finish

    It sounded so good, but I found myself disliking the characters so much and the story just seemed ridiculous after a few chapters. I tried to finish because I hate not to, but just couldn't.

    Don't bother

    This book lacked any real plot or any sense of danger as the two main characters ran around on an island. The author spent way too much time on the characters' internal feelings, so the story went nowhere. The book had continuity issues such as when the characters were "bathed in moonlight" after the sun came up. Really? No proofreading took place? There were grammar and spelling mistakes that detracted as well. I will not be reading anything else from this author. Too bad. The story had an interesting premise. It just didn't follow through.
