With the prevalence of superheroes in movies, TV shows, and books, it’s no wonder we’re drawn to superior humans. Superpowers can range from super strength (Hulk, Superman), super hearing (Daredevil), spider powers (Spiderman), the ability to fly (Wonder Woman, Superman), regenerative properties (Wolverine) and so much more.

In my superhero romance, the Black Hellebore has super strength, super speed, and heightened senses, including hearing and scent. Although sometimes, it’s better not to have an improved sense of smell. Can you imagine walking past a full dumpster?

Personally, I would love to be able to fly. No more rush hour traffic ever! Or super speed. I’d finally be able to read all of the books in my huge TBR pile and be able to write and edit amazingly fast. Or… I could go on and on!


If you could pick one superpower to have, what would it be and why?

Once a year for the past decade, Nicholas Adams returns to Falledge and leaves a black hellebore on his girlfriend's grave. While departing Falledge, he chases after a man sneaking into the laboratory and dies for his trouble. A witch brings him back to life, but Nicholas soon realizes he's not the same man. Turns out, magic combined with a black hellebore in his pocket changed him into a kind of a super man.

His girlfriend's twin, Julianna Paige, is Falledge's deputy, struggling to solve several murders. Nicholas, and his alter ego the Black Hellebore, helps her, even as she helps him move on and even start to love again.

Unfortunately, Nicholas wasn't the only one changed in the laboratory explosion, and now there's a supervillain bent on destroying Falledge, and killing the Black Hellebore. But falling in love might prove more dangerous than any supervillain.

Aislinn of Bairbhe dreams of becoming a lady knight to honor the death of her fallen brother. To her mother's horror, King Patrick grants Aislinn's wish and she begins her long years of training.

Despite the mockery of the other pages, and the disdain of Prince Caelan who also trains to be a knight, Aislinn commits herself to her dreams and embarks on a journey of self-discovery and bravery. Through the years, Aislinn and Caelan grow from sparring classmates to good friends. They both know that someday Caelan will marry for the sake of the kingdom, but even that cannot keep them from falling in love. 

The threat of war with the Speicans is a constant threat, and one that grows more frightening as she and Caelan train toward their eventual knighthood. Aislinn has committed herself to serving Arnhem, and has promised herself as King's Champion when Caelan claims the throne. She is willing to give up everything... her childhood, her life, even her heart for Arnhem. No matter the pain it brings.
