If you follow me on social media, you’d know superheroes are my thing. My first superhero crush was Spider-man at age four. In my pre-teens Superman melted my heart, then Gambit stormed into my world during my teenage years. Hello, chère indeed! When the Civil War books came out in the 90’s Captain America became my latest love, even with his tragic ending.
It was Cap’s end and Peter Parker’s sad love life that inspired me to write superhero romance novels. After all, it’s not easy for a caped crusader to balance their everyday life with their superhero alter ego. Throw in a love interest and the potential for conflict is astronomical. Does the hero leave the relationship to keep their loved one safe? Does the loved one take on a hero identity of their own? So many complications to explore. It’s glorious!
In my latest release, Instinct, I was able to put in all my favorite elements of paranormal romance into a superhero story. I had a shape-shifting super, daring rescues, steamy sex scenes, and I was able to change up the narrative a little by having it be my non-super heroine as the one who had really been the one living with a secret identity. Now the reason for her alter ego had everything to do with self-preservation and less about saving the world, but she does do everything in her power to protect the hero from the sins of her past. Making this alpha hero not know whether he’s coming or going with this strong heroine was a delight to write.
Whether they were born with powers or inherited them, all superheroes must make the same decisions Do they allow others into their inner circle? How do they allow themselves to be vulnerable and trust others with their secrets? Those are the stories that I love, and I can’t wait to share more of them with you.
Ripley Jorgensen had believed the biggest shock in his life was developing shape-shifting powers, but that was nothing compared to learning that one of his teammates, the woman he loved, was a complete fraud. Not only did she steal someone’s identity, she may have committed murder.
Alisia had figured there was no better place to hide out than in a hidden mountain fortress surrounded by superheroes. Surely no one from her past would think to look for her there—that is, until her murderous father hired the Evolutioneers to find his missing daughter and blew her cover. Now she’s on the run with not only her former friends right on her tail, but also the man who has her scent embedded in his soul.
Ripley doesn’t just want answers. The beast within has determined that Alisia is its mate. Until he claims her as his own, the fight between man and animal grows stronger every day. And if she should refuse him? The man would be lost to the beast. Forever.
