|Saving the world is easy for a superhero—unless you’re a fraud.
Jo Tanis is a superhero, fighting evil on the city streets, using her ability to feed off electromagnetic energy and fire off charges—
and it’s all just a show. The Agency captures her and others like her when their powers begin to manifest, pitting them against
each other in staged, gladiatorial fights. An explosive implant on the back of her neck assures she’ll keep right on smiling for the
camera and beating up the bad guys.
When Earth comes under attack, suddenly the show becomes deadly real. Unable to deal with a real alien, the “supers” are
falling in droves. Millions of innocent civilians are going to die…unless Jo can cobble together a team from among the fake heroes
and villains the Agency enslaved. Including Hunter, who not only promises to show her how to deactivate the implants, but seems
to know more than he should about how the mysterious Agency operates.
Forcing a rag-tag bunch of former enemies to work together is the least of Jo’s problems. The trick is determining if Hunter is
friend or foe—and becoming the hero everyone thought she was before the world is destroyed for real.
|Their love rides on a spring and a prayer...
During the recent Civil War, a soldier risked his life to save Jonathan Handleston—and lost. With the help of an advanced metal
brace on his crippled hand, Jon now travels from one poker tournament to the next, determined to earn enough money to repay
the man’s debt.
Prosperity Ridge is supposed to be the last stop on his quest, but his brace is broken and he needs an engineer to repair the
delicate mechanisms. The only one available is Samantha Weatherly, a beautiful anomaly in a world ruled by men.
Sam is no fool. Jon is no different from any other gambler—except for his amazing prosthetic. Despite a demanding project to win
a critical contract to develop an iron horse, she succumbs to the lure of working on the delicate mechanisms. And working with the
Like a spring being coiled, Samantha and Jon are inexorably drawn together. Sam begins to realize honor wears many faces, and
she becomes the light at the end of Jon’s journey to redemption. The only monkey wrench is Victor, a rival gambler who will stop
at nothing to make sure Jon misses the tournament. Even destroy Jon and Sam’s lives.
|Fight alone, die alone.
In the weeks since Jo “Surf” Tanis and her rough-and-tumble band of super-powered actors broke free of the government-
sponsored superhero show, they’re all still dealing with the aftershock of adjusting to this thing called reality.
It doesn’t get much more real than a mission to dig survivors out of what’s left of Erie, PA, after a mysterious earthquake. A
trembler that powerful is as out of place as Jo feels as the de-facto leader of the troupe. Not to mention the soul-shaking feelings
she has for Hunter, a team member whose past as an Agency Guardian casts a heavy shadow over any possible relationship.
It seems one of the supers, an earth-warper named Ground Pounder, has gone rogue, using his freedom from the Agency’s brand
of virtual slavery to put the “villain” back in supervillain. Failure to find him before any more innocent bystanders are hurt means
the team could be back under the Agency’s thumb.
It’s a burden that doesn’t rest easy on Jo’s shoulders...especially when the man who’s invaded her heart is caught in the crossfire.

Every family has secrets, but some are more dangerous than others…

employees. If she doesn't agree, Michael will dig into Rebecca's past to prove she's not fit for his son.
When Rebecca discovers a dead body, she knows Brandon's father is hiding something. And she must decide if the truth is worth
risking Brandon's love.
