The newest in superpowered love from Katey Hawthorne, Nobody's Hero, is now available from Loose Id!

Electricity, lies, and performance... there's got to be more to life than that. With half his life a superpowered secret and the other semi-closeted, Jamie Monday is one hell of an actor. But if he wants to keep sweet, geek-sexy Kellan around, he'll have to own his truth and stop playing at being nobody's hero.

Check out the Nobody's Hero page to meet Jamie and Kelly, read excerpts, and keep up with where to find the book. Or head over Loose Id to check out the opening pages and grab a copy of your own.
