"Highly recommended: 5 hearts" - The Romance Studio

When superhero Londo (Valiant) Rand breaks through her door to save Lina O'Kelly in a burning hotel, she knows that's just the start of her problems.

Londo's foes have temporarily blasted away his powers, leaving the two of them to outrun a mercenary army across an otherwise deserted South Pacific island. If they're lucky they can reach safety until Londo's powers return.

But Londo doesn't want that, 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?

Meet the Author

Carol A. Strickland is a writer of mostly fantasy and science fiction novels that involve mostly strong women and strange worlds. Mostly. That means that on occasion there'll be a historical romance, or the lead character might be a guy. You can also find a little humor in the books, because life isn't a serious affair.
Mostly.
Although born in a small town in Illinois noted for its Nineteenth Century demonic possession cases, Carol A. Strickland 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.
It was the sudden realization that her first novel was a romance and not just f/sf that prompted her to join Romance Writers of America. Their various workshops and mentoring programs have helped her get this far. Over the years she kept the requisite number of cats that Marion Zimmer Bradley declared a fantasy author needed to write well.
A one-time comics letterhack and now an 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), had one superhero wear her costume design... and in the so-called "real world" she also knows that Brad Pitt is eight years and two days younger than she. Sigh.
She wants to write like her favorite authors: to be able to portray the honest emotion and surprises that you find in Julia Quinn; to be bold and funny as Jenny Crusie; to find the multi-layered imagination and heart that Lois McMaster Bujold uses; and to enjoy the sales success of Janet Evanovich.
Carol has also become an award-winning painter from her home in North Carolina. 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.

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 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.

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.

i guess this could have been a good book if i could believe the characters but it just felt foolish and after a few chapters i went to the end just to get through this. maybe good for others but just not my hype

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.
