I posted my ridiculous Christmas list in my weekly blog over at Ink Monster, and my Manhattan Ten heroines were super jealous of all the stuff I’m getting this year…especially that basketball-sized Lindt truffle.
Shopping for a superheroine can be daunting (capes? masks? Lycra?) but my girls are pretty practical with their wish-lists. They all need gear to get through the day.
Have a look! Maybe you’ll pick up a few last-minute ideas for the superheroines in your life : )
Jenny appreciates the balance between sexy and lazy. She’s equally up for a night at the clubs or a night on the couch. This year, she’s hoping to find some Agent Provacateur under the tree, along with this sweet pizza onesie. MAC rebel (obviously) is needed for kissing on the job, and she’s hoping Tank will treat her to some fancy food giftcards for her favorite ramen and cupcake joints now that she’s officially a New Yorker.
Ivory can’t feel the cold, but she loves her creature comforts. She’s always in the market for new boots that fit her Amazon-sized feet and snow-flake inspired jewelry. Some new passport covers and plushie snow friends round out this wish-list, along with steaks in serious bulk. She and Pan are intensely carnivorous, and work up their appetites fighting crime.
Belle is one practical ballerina. She needs new warm-up booties, legwarmers, and pointe shoe glue…and she’ll use them every day. She’s also hoping for some mason glass drinking jars (just like home!) and a new speaker system so she can have more portable dance practices.
Angel just wants to stay organized this year. She needs new pens and notebooks to keep it together in the office. At home, she’s looking for a few cute throws, and a new phone case (Trina Turk FTW). Plus a new perfume–anything with notes of jasmine!
I’m so excited to share the cover for the next Manhattan Ten novella…and even more excited to share Angel’s story! I love Angel, and she’s definitely one of the more relatable M10 ladies–she’s working at the office every day just trying to deal with her powers as she cleans up all the other superheroes’ messes. Plus, you may recognize her guy from somewhere…
Angelina Márquez’s perfect memory recall makes her ideally suited to manage the Manhattan Ten superhero crew, a task that sometimes borders on insanity. Still, the price of being everything to everyone is high.
A recruiting trip to UCLA does nothing to cure her chronic insomnia. Intel indicates someone in the L.A. Pack may be harboring anti-super sentiment. On top of that, she’s sent to retrieve a straight-out-of-the-jungle panther shifter being detained at LAX.
Tequani was looking forward to visiting his hero brother, but when civilization unexpectedly brings out his claws, he’s court-ordered to stick with Angel while his paws are on U.S. soil. He’s fully prepared to be bored out of his skull—except Angel’s talents and beauty fill the vacant places in his soul.
Angel can’t seem to stop Quan from burning himself into her mind, right down to the exact dimensions of his abdominals. But when they fall into a trap, survival means pooling every one of their talents. A move that could balance their souls…or throw their hearts into dangerous chaos.
Warning: Feeding panther-shifters results in territorial behavior and steamy displays of affection. Be on the lookout for claw marks, love bites and heavy petting.
