Synopsis:

Superheroes. Save the world and protect mankind.


But what’s beneath the cape? Behind the mask? Under the steel-plated fa├žade?

Eight bestselling New Adult romance authors have come together to bring you seven stories about superheroes and what it takes to win their hearts. From the skies, to the cities, to the ocean, our superheroes face death, fight villains, conquer evil and—

Find love.


The world is full of heroes. Every-day men and women who risk their lives for the sake of others—for life, liberty, freedom, and justice. Often these men and women are wounded—physically or mentally—in the line of duty. Therefore, we have created this anthology with the sole purpose of benefitting the Wounded Warrior Project.

Because heroes should never be forgotten.

The stories

Reaping Angels by Laura Thalassa:
The Executioner’s touch can kill.
Angel’s can heal.
A villain and a hero. One who stood for death, and the other for life. Mortal enemies until the impossible happened.
A touch.
A kiss.
And now, a manhunt.


MY THOUGHTS
Sometimes I see a picture of an author and I think, "Oh she is cute and looks so sweet and innocent." Then I dive into the book and it hooks me right away, I can't put it down, I have to keep going! Then all of a sudden, BAM! Then I'm like, "HOLY HOTNESS! This author is so naughty!" WOW! This story is the first one in the book, and man is it good! And HOT! And full of excitement! And action! MUST READ!


Cat Love by Sunniva Dee:
A sexy thriller about the animal in all of us.

Aidan uses his superpower to stabilize minds at the Hollyreed Specialist Hospital. Ulani uses hers to chase rats on rooftops. Until she’s caught and deposited in Aidan’s care.
At the hospital, Aidan finds Ulani's room empty—save for a cat, whose fur retracts in favor of silky skin and a vamp-gorgeous femme fatale.
Aidan’s obsession with Ulani grows, while patients go missing.
Making the couple use their powers to bring criminals to justice.

MY THOUGHTS
Sunniva is one of my favorite authors, but that doesn't make me biased, there is a reason for it. SHE ROCKS! And I already know Sunniva is naughty ;) But she wasn't AS naughty in this one. Aidan and Ulani are trying to figure out what happened to some missing patients from a psychiatric hospital, where HE works and SHE escaped from. They are shocked at what they find out. I was very shocked at what I found at the very end. ;) This is a good one; just have to read it to find out what happens.


Gypsy Love by Angela McPherson & Lynn Vroman:
For two hundred years, Adrian vowed to seek revenge against the Gypsy woman who bound his spirit for eternity.
Until her.
The one man Mia wants only exists in dreams.
Until he doesn’t.
The curse may be broken, but not without a price.
One love must end for another to begin.


MY THOUGHTS
OMG GYPSYS AHHH!!! I love Gypsys! As a kid my parents used to threaten to sell me to the Gypsys as a joke, but I told them that I thought it would be cool if they did. LOVED this one! Another HOT one! I wish I had a man in my dreams! The price to end the curse is not as it seems. Gypsys talk in riddles and don't spell everything out for you exactly as they will, or need, to happen. They just give you a cryptic message and send you on your way to let it all play itself out. And I did not see THAT coming! Tricky Gypsys! Simply must read this one.


The Only Difference by Magan Vernon:
The Only Difference between a hero and a villain is what they do with their power.
Leonel "Short Stack" Garcia-Shapiro's life changed the night he decided to stop one of his fraternity brothers from taking advantage of a girl. Now he can't stop thinking of that girl and how he can save her.




Heroes by Christine Zolendz:
Kelly Black can’t believe she’ll be the new teaching assistant to Alexander Masters. The Alexander Masters—the head of the entire biology department. As soon as they begin to work together sparks fly and danger swirls around them.



Breaking Through by D. Nichole King:
Two years after her brother Nate died during a Navy operation, aquator Nautia Olson’s nightmares began, and her ability to manipulate water became erratic. Anger, fear, joy, desire—they all trigger disaster.
Now, the Navy wants her for a top-secret mission, but Captain Riley Barton has his reservations. He’s read her file. He knows the damage she’s capable of, and yet—
If he can harness her ability—break through her walls—
She’ll be unstoppable.




Villain by Cheryl McIntyre:
How can you tell a hero from a villain?
If you’re Ember Willis and the villain is Lanely Frost, you can’t.
How can you tell a superhero from a delusional young woman?
If you’re Lanely Frost and the woman is Ember Willis, you don’t care.
For both, finding the balance between right and wrong and love and lust are not the only battles they’ll face.
