Beneath the Cape—The Superhero Anthology by Angela McPherson, Cheryl McIntyre, Christine Zolendz, D. Nichole King, Laura Thalassa, Lynn Vroman, Magan Vernon, Sunniva Dee

Beneath the Cape—The Superhero Anthology

Beneath the Cape—The Superhero Anthology

Created with the sole purpose of benefiting the Wounded Warrior Project.

Only available July 1st - October 1st.


Save the world and protect mankind.

But what’s beneath the cape? Behind the mask? Under the steel-plated façade?

Eight bestselling New Adult romance authors have come together to bring you seven stories about superheroes and what it takes to win their hearts. From the skies, to the cities, to the ocean, our superheroes face death, fight villains, conquer evil and—

Find love.

The world is full of heroes. Every-day men and women who risk their lives for the sake of others—for life, liberty, freedom, and justice. Often these men and women are wounded—physically or mentally—in the line of duty. Therefore, we have created this anthology with the sole purpose of benefitting theWounded Warrior Project.

Because heroes should never be forgotten.

Reading Anthologies are a great way to discover new authors. 6 of these authors are new to me, and I am so excited to read more from them!!

Each of these stories are completely different. 
Heroes come in many different shapes and forms and in these stories you get several varieties.
heroes ~ shifters ~ ghosts

In all honesty I had no clue what I was getting myself into! 
Christine Zolendz is one of my favorite authors. She said she was writing a story for an anthology raising money for Wounded Warriors and I didn't hear or read any further. 
Sign me up, I said!
So when I started the first story and it was about actual villains vs superheros, 
I thought... oh.. duh....I get it... CAPE! hee hee

Reaping Angels by Laura Thalassa:
The Executioner’s touch can kill.
Angel’s can heal.
A villain and a hero. One who stood for death, and the other for life. Mortal enemies until the impossible happened. 
A touch. 
A kiss. 
And now, a manhunt.

This was my first read by Laura Thalassa and I loved it! This was the first in line and was about superheroes and villains! 
It was cute and too funny, sexy and so entertaining! 
I really loved it!

Cat Love by Sunniva Dee:
A sexy thriller about the animal in all of us. 

Aidan uses his superpower to stabilize minds at the Hollyreed Specialist Hospital. Ulani uses hers to chase rats on rooftops. Until she’s caught and deposited in Aidan’s care. 
At the hospital, Aidan finds Ulani's room empty—save for a cat, whose fur retracts in favor of silky skin and a vamp-gorgeous femme fatale. 
Aidan’s obsession with Ulani grows, while patients go missing.
Making the couple use their powers to bring criminals to justice.

This was my first time reading anything from Sunniva Dee.
This story has a bit of a mysterious touch to it and it also ends on a cliffy! 
I liked how her human form resembled her feline form. Slinking and sashaying around!

Gypsy Love by Angela McPherson & Lynn Vroman:
For two hundred years, Adrian vowed to seek revenge against the Gypsy woman who bound his spirit for eternity. 
Until her.
The one man Mia wants only exists in dreams. 
Until he doesn’t. 
The curse may be broken, but not without a price. 
One love must end for another to begin.

OMG this was my favorite!!! It is also my first read by both these authors.
I thought it was sunny, sexy, and EMOTIONAL! I cried!!!!
I absolutely loved it!!! I can not wait to read more!!!!
Although I was literally bawling on the last word, I was happy and satisfied. BUT, lucky for me, there's another 2 books to continue the story! I can't wait!

The Only Difference by Magan Vernon:
The Only Difference between a hero and a villain is what they do with their power. 
Leonel "Short Stack" Garcia-Shapiro's life changed the night he decided to stop one of his fraternity brothers from taking advantage of a girl. Now he can't stop thinking of that girl and how he can save her.

This story was a very quick one and more of an everyday hero rather than an actual cape wearing one. 

Heroes by Christine Zolendz:
Kelly Black can’t believe she’ll be the new teaching assistant to Alexander Masters. The Alexander Masters—the head of the entire biology department. As soon as they begin to work together sparks fly and danger swirls around them.

At first, this story started off pretty funny and with a student/teacher type feel. Then came the moment their electrifying chemistry hit and all the action happened!

Breaking Through by D. Nichole King:
Two years after her brother Nate died during a Navy operation, aquator Nautia Olson’s nightmares began, and her ability to manipulate water became erratic. Anger, fear, joy, desire—they all trigger disaster.
Now, the Navy wants her for a top-secret mission, but Captain Riley Barton has his reservations. He’s read her file. He knows the damage she’s capable of, and yet—
If he can harness her ability—break through her walls—
She’ll be unstoppable.

Breaking Through had me really intrigued! I was enjoying the easy going story with a hint of mystery and was really getting into it when I was hit with a cliffy!!! All i can say is... give me more please! I need to know what happens!!

Villain by Cheryl McIntyre:
How can you tell a hero from a villain?

If you’re Ember Willis and the villain is Lanely Frost, you can’t.
How can you tell a superhero from a delusional young woman?
If you’re Lanely Frost and the woman is Ember Willis, you don’t care.
For both, finding the balance between right and wrong and love and lust are not the only battles they’ll face.

I enjoyed this read very much. I loved the funny, easy going banter between the two. Their chemistry was hot and it was an awesome little story.
