Hero Status

Dave Del Toro used to be a superhero. Now he’s retired and happily married—to his former nemesis, Valentina Belmonte, better known as the Black Valentine. The two have settled in sunny Miami and left the past behind them. No more masks, capes or handcuffs. At least, not outside of the bedroom.

But then the famous hero Supersonic turns up dead, and Valentina is arrested for the murder. Dave knows she’s innocent, but he has to find the real killer if he wants to prove it. Investigating on his own, dodging the law, he gets tangled in a web of conspiracy that will take more than super-strength to break. If Dave wants to save his wife, he’ll have to cross lines no hero ever should…

VILLAINOUS

Book 2 of the White Knight and Black Valentine Series

Available now on Amazon Kindle

Villainous Cover

Valentina Belmonte isn’t evil anymore—honest. She’s hung up her supervillain costume, retired to Florida with her family, and hasn’t committed a crime in years. (Well, not a felony. What’s a misdemeanor here and there if you don’t get caught?) This time, she’s not the one in trouble with the law—her goody-two-shoes, former superhero of a husband is.

He saved her life two months ago but committed a spectacular amount of assault and property damage along the way. The feds plan to press charges…unless Val does something for them in exchange. Apparently, an old friend of hers is importing a deadly drug that gives people temporary psychic powers. The feds want to send in Val with a wire to get evidence to bring him down. Sounds simple enough, but things turn deadly fast, and Val finds herself up against another supervillain—one who can out-play her at her own game.

Val’s worried she’s gone soft since retirement, but if she doesn’t get the feds the evidence they need, her husband will end up rotting in one of the most hellish prisons in the country…

A Gothic Steampunk Novel

Available now on Amazon Kindle

Ghost Machine Book Cover

Ella Rosenfeld is a lunatic. Locked away in the remote Auttenberg Asylum, she undergoes torturous treatment to cure her hallucinations. Yet the longer she remains within Auttenberg’s austere halls, the more gruesome her visions become, until Ella is sure she’s seeing ghosts, and Auttenberg’s doctor knows it. He doesn’t plan to cure her; he wants to study her ability by dissecting her.

Ella refuses to accept her fate. She assaults her captors, scales the asylum fence, and finds sanctuary in the castle of Baron Viktor Szarka. Young and arrogant, the baron offers her protection, but he’s rumored to have locked a woman in the asylum to hide his dark past, and he has suspicious dealings with Auttenberg’s doctor. Unable to trust him, Ella must uncover the conspiracy surrounding the asylum, her visions, and the baron’s secret…or join the rest of Auttenberg’s ghosts.

  1. Hey! Just finished the Kindle sample and wanted to say it convinced me to get the rest of the book. Really liked it. As an avid comicbook reader, I’ve been looking for a good superhero novel to read. So far nothing on Amazon has really grabbed me like this. Thanks.
    Oh… and I can’t help but hear Craig T. Nelson as the narrator 😀

    • zcotty, thank you so much! Your comment made my day. I was definitely aiming this novel at comic book readers, so I’m happy to hear that you enjoyed it.
      I wonder how much Mr. Nelson would charge to do the audiobook. 😉
      P.S. Sorry it took so long for your comment to appear. I had it set so I had to manually approve all comments–but I just fixed that, so you shouldn’t have to wait so long again!

        😀 No harm in asking Mr. Nelson.

        I’m now 30% through the book and still loving it. My reading time is limited to morning on the way to work, afternoon/evening on the way home and just before bed, so the going is kind of slow.

        I’ll edit my Amazon review when I’m done.

        In the meanwhile… keep working on the sequel. 😉
