"very entertaining paranormal romance"

Carmen Cole has made it her mission to unmask superheroes and ubervillians, ever since she found her fiance and best friend in bed together on her wedding day and discovered that they were a superhero and ubervillian, respectively. Carmen has moved to Bigtime, New York and taken a job at The Expose and hopes to unmask the Fearless Five and the Terrible Triad. When Carmen unmasks one of the Fearless Five, the Tornado, and he commits suicide, she decides to stop her quest. Later, Carmen is kidnapped and threatened by the Terrible Triad, because they want her to discover the secret identity of the leader of the Fearless Five, Striker. Carmen hopes to thwart the Terrible Triad with the help of the Fearless Five, but the Terrible Triad don't give up easily.

KARMA GIRL is a very entertaining paranormal romance with many humorous scenes. Carmen makes a great heroine with her wise-cracking and need to make amends for her mistakes. Striker is a wonderfully dark, broody hero with a dry wit. They make a great couple and the rest of the Fearless Five are very much a family. I hope Ms. Estep decides to set more books in her superhero world. KARMA GIRL is highly recommended, especially for lovers of comic books.

Someone has to pay for what happened to Carmen Cole ...

Hobnobbing with modelizing millionaires and famished fashionistas is all in a day's work for the woman on the trail of the Fearless Five and Terrible Triad. But when Carmen gets the scoop of her career, her life comes crashing down around her. And even Bigtime's sexiest superhero, Striker, may not be able to save her ...
