Aphrodite's Delight

JKInk

Nikko has never been the kind of superhero that plays by the rules. But when he finds himself on probation -- and in danger of losing his superhero status -- he knows he needs to prove to the Council that he can do what superheroes are expected to do: save the world. Not an easy task under normal circumstances, but in New York City, where every eagle-eyed kid mistakes him for the comic book hero Silver Streak, it's turning out to be nearly impossible.

 

Shy and introverted, comic book fan Lydia Carmichael doesn’t have the gumption to break out of her cubicle and away from her patronizing boss and her soul-crushing job.  At least not until a pair of magical new shoes bring new levels of confidence (not to mention speed and dexterity) – and put her face to face with the comic book superhero she’s been crushing on for years – the Silver Streak.

 

There’s no denying that the chemistry between them is as incendiary as a comic strip’s Blam! But Nikko has no idea who – or what – Lydia really is, and Lydia knows that if she tells him the truth, she’ll not only lose him, but lose the chance to help save the world.

 

But if a pair of magical shoes can help a girl like Lydia find the superhero inside herself, then maybe Lydia can find the courage to fight for—and win -- the man she loves.

J. Kenner
An emotionally charged eBook novella from New York Times bestselling author J. Kenner following the novels in her blockbuster Stark Trilogy—Release Me, Claim Me, and Complete Me, as well as her tie-in novella Take Me—Have Me continues the story of fan favorites Damien Stark and his new wife, Nikki Fairchild.
 
Our wedding was everything I dreamed of, and now the honeymoon is a living fantasy. To be Mrs. Damien Stark is the ultimate rush—to know that our claim to each other is real, our fierce passion sealing our bond. My kiss is forever his, his touch is forever mine.
 
We both harbor deep scars from our pasts, and we’ve done everything we can to lay our ghosts to rest. But there are still dreams that haunt me, and people that threaten to tear us apart.
 
Our shared ecstasy makes me feel alive, and I’ll do anything to keep Damien close. He is my future, my hope, my every want and need. And once you’ve tasted that kind of obsession, nothing can make you give it up.  
 
Have Me is intended for mature audiences.
 
Praise for J. Kenner and The Stark Trilogy

Book 1
From the New York Times bestselling author of such “sizzling Stark novels” (RT Book Reviews) as Release Me and Say My Name comes a Stark International Novel featuring provocative bad boy Dallas Sykes—the first in a new trilogy in the S.I.N. series.

It was wrong for us to be together, but it was even harder to be apart.
 
The memory of Dallas Sykes burns inside of me.
 
Everyone knows him as a notorious playboy, a man for whom women and money are no object. But to me, he’s still the one man I desperately crave—yet the one I can never have.
 
Dallas knows me better than anyone else. We bear the same scars, the same darkness in our past. I thought I could move on by staying away, but now that we’re drawn together once more, I can’t fight the force of our attraction or the temptation to make him mine.
 
We’ve tried to maintain control, not letting ourselves give in to desire. And for so long we’ve told ourselves no—but now it’s finally time to say yes.

Book 2
The S.I.N. series continues with the seductive follow-up to the Stark International Novel Dirtiest Secret, from the New York Times bestselling author of “red-hot and angsty” fiction that “keeps readers guessing” (Publishers Weekly, on Under My Skin).

No one can know about our love—and hiding only makes it hotter.
 
Dallas Sykes has a reputation. He is known for his parties, his money, and the countless women on his arm. Yet the Dallas I know is a different man—darker, smarter, and unbearably sexy. Just one look from him can leave me breathless; the anticipation of his touch can make me lose control.
 
Inextricably bound by our past, we keep each other’s secrets. And while there are people who have the power to hurt us, it’s the truth that threatens us most of all.
 
Dallas can be mine only behind closed doors, our passion as searing as it is forbidden. Yet nothing in this world has ever felt so desperately, deliciously right.
