About the author:
When you think of fiction's strong women and strange worlds, think Carol A. Strickland. She is the author of science fiction/fantasy books as well as one sweet historical romance. Her "Three Worlds" superhero romance series narrates a unique spin on superheroes and the way they might fit into a not-so-normal universe.
A one-time comics letterhack and outspoken member of various comics message boards, Carol has found herself the basis for two comic book villains (at times her opinions have not been taken well by the books' creators) (both villains were soundly thrashed) (and both, for some perverse reason, were male), and had one superhero wear her costume design. (Light Lass!)
Touch of Danger
Carol A. Strickland
SUPERHERO ROMANCE AND ADVENTURE LIKE YOU'VE NEVER SEEN BEFORE!
Can love blossom when a touch is deadly?
Sometimes a superhero is just too powerful to enjoy life. But Londo (Valiant) Rand's foes have temporarily blasted away his powers, leaving him to outrun a mercenary army across an otherwise deserted South Pacific island-- accompanied by a beautiful woman, Lina O'Kelly. If they're lucky they can reach safety until Londo's powers return.
But Londo doesn't want his powers back, not yet. This is the one day in his life he'll be able to touch someone without the potential of accidentally tearing them to shreds. Too bad that psychic Lina is acutely phobic to touch. What the world's greatest superhero asks for is what she's unable to give.
Can they escape terrorists, gales and ghosts to find haven? If they should fall deeply in love, how will they cope when Londo's powers return and he's too strong to hold Lina in his arms?
TWO BOOKS IN ONE!
The original TOUCH OF DANGER has been combined with STAR-CROSSED to bring you a larger adventure in one volume. Now the story reaches out to the stars and other worlds. Londo's life hangs by a thread. Are Lina's psychic healing techniques enough to save him, or will she need the help of unearthly science--and a beautiful alien man's powers?
Lina begins to understand just how dangerous it is to get close to the galaxy's most famous hero. Even his friends are plotting against her. Can she make Londo realize that all this can't possibly work? Even above her own heart, she must protect his.
