VENERATE COUNCIL OF PROTECTORS
Protecting Mortals Is Our Business!
||“Ms. Kenner has a way with dialogue; her one-liners are funny and fresh. Her comic timing is beautiful, almost Jennifer Crusie-esque.”
—All About RomanceThere are people in this world who believe in magic, who search for the possibility in their daily lives . . .Focused attorney Nicholas Goodman is not one of those people. A rising star in a major law firm, Nick has all the pieces of his life in order: a great career, financial success, and a girlfriend whose father is one of his major clients. Everything in his life is neat and orderly—until the day Nick opens his door and finds a green-eyed, dark-haired beauty standing there. And she happens to be totally naked.
To these people, love is just as magical as a unicorn in your driveway . . .
Maggie is one-hundred percent, head-over-heels in love with Nicholas. He’s kind and smart and sexy, and she’s certain he’s the man for her. There’s just one problem: Maggie’s not exactly human.
But through the power of magic, she’s given a chance. She has one week to make Nick fall in love with her.
One week to make “happily ever after” a reality.
THE CAT’S FANCY introduces Deena & Hoop, characters in the Protector (Superhero) series, and is a prequel to that series.
|“A true original, filled with humor, adventure and fun!”—RT Book ReviewsZoe Smith might look like your average, ordinary elementary school librarian, but she’s about as far from normal as a girl can get. Because Zoe is descended from a line of superheroes … and as her twenty-fifth birthday approaches, she has to decide if she’s going to embrace her heritage (including all the wackiness that comes with X-ray vision and her extraordinary senses) or submit herself for mortalization and be that average, ordinary girl.Considering how lousy she’s done so far on all the Council-imposed tests, chucking the whole superhero thing might be very best thing … especially when she realizes that sexy, private investigator George Bailey Taylor is more than a little interested in her—and he’s more than a little convinced that Zoe is one-hundred percent “the girl next-door”.
An ex-cop turned PI, George Bailey Taylor’s had one hell of a life being bounced around from foster home to foster home. All he wants now is a normal life with a normal wife in a normal neighborhood. The typical American dream—and when he meets Zoe Smith, he’s certain she’s the typical American girl.
Except she does have an overprotective brother who seems able to appear and disappear at will. And a creepy cousin who’s always lurking about. And why does everyone in her family pretend to actually talk to the pet ferret?
With her super powers, Zoe can do just about anything … except make Taylor fall in love with her.
For that, they’re both going to need a different kind of magic …
Protector (Superhero) series
(book 1.5, novella)
by Julie Kenner
|“[Julie Kenner has a] flair for dialogue and eccentric characterizations.”—Publishers WeeklyWho says Mom knows best?Jennifer Martin has worked with enough Protectors to know that she has absolutely no interest in dating—much less marrying!—the arrogant superheroes. Too bad her mom has a completely different view on the subject … and is determined that Jenny marry one of those perfectly “perfect” men.Starbuck is undercover, pretending to be a mortal as he searches for a spy who’s selling Council secrets to the biggest bad guy of all, Hieronymous.Falling for Jenny is not only a distraction from his job, it’s also going nowhere. Because even if she likes him as a man, he knows damn well that she’s not going to like him as a Protector anymore than she will appreciate the lies he’s told in order to get close to her.
And to make matters worse, Jenny’s mom is his most likely suspect. It’s a conundrum and a half, but with a little luck (and a few rare superpowers), Starbuck just might manage to catch the mole—and get the girl!
|| “Julie Kenner does it again! This follow-up to the hilarious and amazing Aphrodite’s Kiss is filled with the same sense of fun and originality as the first. Excellent reading!”—RT Book Reviews Mortal Tracy Tannin has always felt like the most ordinary girl in the world, especially since she’s lived her whole life in the shadow of her Hollywood superstar grandmother. But when she finds an antique belt in her grandmother’s attic, everything changes. Suddenly everyone wants Tracy—or maybe they just want the belt.Superhero Hale is more than happy to do his job protecting mortals. But get emotionally close to one? Absolutely no way. Which is why he’s thrown a bit off his game when he suddenly finds himself craving the mortal woman he’s been assigned to protect. But that must just be the effect of the magical belt he’s supposed to retrieve, right?
Because there’s no way that a guy like Hale can fall for a girl like Tracy.
Or is there?
||“Julie Kenner’s [created a] clever series. This world is always an exciting place to visit, making each new book well worth the wait.”—RT Book Reviews Shapeshifter Jason Murphy spent six years captive to the most notorious Outcast in the Protector world—Hieronymous Black, who also happens to be Jason’s father. Worse than his unfortunate parentage and the fact of his captivity, though, is the distrust that his absence put between him and the love of his life, Lane.Lane knows only that the father of her child disappeared just moments after she told him she was pregnant, and she’s spent the last few years struggling as a single mom, raising her exceptional son and trying to find a man who will do what she believes Jason didn’t—put her and her son ahead of everything else.Now Jason’s determined to win back his family.
But to do that, he’s going to have to face his father one last time. And he’s going to have to tell Lane the truth—and hope that this time she’ll see him as a hero.
||“This laugh out loud funny book is sexy, compelling, and worth not taking bathroom breaks.”—A Romance ReviewMordichai grew up under the shadow of the baddest bad guy out there—Hieronymous Black—and he’s used his power to conjure fire to help Daddy Dearest in numerous nefarious plots. But he’s reformed now—and just in time to meet the woman of his dreams.Isole Frost knows all about Mordi’s past, and she believes him when he says he’s truly reformed. Trouble is, she also believes that Hieronymous truly wants to give up his dark ways and join the good guys, and nothing Mordi says can sway her.
He may be the dark-haired, green-eyed man of her dreams, but she’s sure that he’s wrong.And when they’re forced to work together, they’re either going to prove that fire won’t mesh with ice—or that the inevitable result is a whole lotta steam!
|Nikko has never been the kind of superhero that plays by the rules. But when he finds himself on probation — and in danger of losing his superhero status — he knows he needs to prove to the Council that he can do what superheroes are expected to do: save the world. Not an easy task under normal circumstances, but in New York City, where every eagle-eyed kid mistakes him for the comic book hero Silver Streak, it’s turning out to be nearly impossible.
Shy and introverted, comic book fan Lydia Carmichael doesn’t have the gumption to break out of her cubicle and away from her patronizing boss and her soul-crushing job. At least not until a pair of magical new shoes bring new levels of confidence (not to mention speed and dexterity) – and put her face to face with the comic book superhero she’s been crushing on for years – the Silver Streak.
There’s no denying that the chemistry between them is as incendiary as a comic strip’s Blam! But Nikko has no idea who – or what – Lydia really is, and Lydia knows that if she tells him the truth, she’ll not only lose him, but lose the chance to help save the world.
But if a pair of magical shoes can help a girl like Lydia find the superhero inside herself, then maybe Lydia can find the courage to fight for—and win — the man she loves.
