Aphrodite's Delight


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.

From New York Times bestselling author J. Kenner comes an electrifying holiday eBook novella. In Unwrap Me, fan favorites Damien Stark and Nikki Fairchild get ready for Christmas—and this year they’re both on the very naughty list.
Includes a special preview of Dirtiest Secret, the provocative first novel in J. Kenner’s highly anticipated new trilogy!
Damien Stark is my greatest Christmas wish come true. Immensely powerful and devastatingly sexy, he can undo me with the slightest touch, and with just one glance, he can see straight into my soul.
We both have dark secrets, twisted pieces of our pasts that only the other one understands. Though our fierce love and passion keeps me alive, sometimes I wonder what would’ve happened if Damien and I hadn’t met in exactly the way we did.
How would my life have been different? Would another man have laid claim to my body and my heart? Or were Damien and I destined to be together no matter the cost?
Unwrap Me is intended for mature audiences.
