Ebook (192 pages, COVET)
All kindergarten teacher Peyton Pearson wants is a nice, quiet life. Unfortunately, quiet isn't something she's had a lot of after tainted medicine turns her into a superhero. She's single, and saving the city from criminals—which is increasingly dangerous as the anti-superhero movement in St. Louis gains traction. Then there's her hot next door neighbor who makes her think super-dirty thoughts, and has no idea who she really is.
Police officer Dylan Wilson is trying to make the world safe by working to unmask all superheroes. When his sexy neighbor, Peyton, is evicted, Dylan offers her his spare room, unknowingly opening his home—and his heart—to the city's most reluctant superhero.
Can love survive when the masks come off?

Fantasticly super without being too cliched. (5 stars)
With the popularity of superheroes moving from being mostly in comics to both the big and small screen it should come as no surprise that here and there you can find a fun book featuring them too. I'll admit it... I freaking LOVE superhero romances. They're like catnip to my inner nerd girl. So I was super excited (pun not intended) to find out that Covet was going to have one out this month. Even more excited when I saw it's intended to be part of a series.
When kindergarten teacher, Peyton Pearson's ex swapped her meds she wound up with super powers. But St. Louis isn't filled with damsels and folks who adore them, they're viewed as a problem that's got an anti-superhero movement gaining popularity. Dylan Wilson, Peyton's hunky cop neighbor, wants to see superheroes unmasked as the troublesome vigilantes they are. When Peyton gets evicted and Dylan offers her the spare room it's a win-win for both... until her alter ego comes between them.
Reading HIS SECRET SUPERHEROINE had me as happy as a pig in slop. Sure, it's not particularly inspired, but if you love superhero stories the danger of being unmasked by the love interest never gets old. Peyton and Dylan are likable characters with a supporting cast that will have you eager to read more of their world. I've enjoyed Eimer's work in the past (and had a couple I didn't) but the humor was really great this time, I actually forgot it was her work for a while and attributed it to one of her friends whom she mentions in the acknowledgements.
If you've got a hankering for a superhero romance that's sweet and funny and sexy you will love HSS and I bet you'll be waiting anxiously beside me for another St. Louis Superheroes to get their own story.
