Midnight Justice releases today. This is a print anthology with a really unique theme of superhero romance. My contribution is Blade of Moonlight which was previously only available in ebook format. The other contributors are Vivi Andrews and Jodi Redford, two fabulous authors with fun stories. Buy this one, I think you’ll like it.
I was happily surprised today when I found a box lying on my doorstep. It was my author copies of Midnight Justice, which releases on April 2. This superhero romance anthology includes Blade of Moonlight, Breaking Bad by Jodi Redford, and Superlovin’ by Vivi Andrews. I love technology, but there’s still something about a paper book. I love the feel and the smell and the look of it. Call me old-fashioned, but I’m still happy to see my stories in print.
Excerpt from Blade of Moonlight.
“Part of the Midnight Justice anthology, Dean’s novella manages to balance a strong plot with sex scenes hot enough to melt an ereader…the pacing here is quick yet unhurried, and erotica fans will enjoy the resulting fun read. Recommended.” —Library Journal Reviews
“Andrews delights with two hot characters who are so colorful you’ll laugh out loud.”
—RT Book Reviews magazine on The Sexorcist by Vivi Andrews, Nominated for Reviewer’s Choice Award 2011
“Redford delivers a solid story with a bit of mystery and some adventurous sex. Collections that are looking to include a lighter take on sexy romps in the style of Laurell K. Hamilton or Sunny will find this a solid addition.”
—Library Journal Reviews on Maximum Witch

In a world of darkness, she is his light.
It’s a dark and stormy night, and Luna Masters is in trouble. Buttoned-up court reporter by day, by night she fights crime as Luminescence, drawing power from the moon. No moon, no power…and she’s about to pay with her life.
As her consciousness dims, a man steps from the shadows. But he’s no savior. It’s Scythe, a villain whose reputation for evil is legend. When she awakens, at first she’s surprised to be alive. Then enraged to find herself tied to his bed. Naked.
Scythe is livid. A minor superhero like Luna has no business on his turf, and he plans to enjoy administering punishment, Yet somewhere in the night, pain turns into pleasure…then into something wicked and sexy that shakes them both to the core.
Though Scythe warns her away, Luna’s passion for justice draws her back into the dark, to her masked lover’s side. For good, or evil? Only the dawn will tell…

An Excerpt From: BLADE OF MOONLIGHT
© Copyright KIMBERLY DEAN, 2012.
Published by Samhain Publishing, May 1, 2012.
She didn’t know if she could put the boots on or not.
She stared at them from five feet away. They were sex bombs, she realized. She’d always known that. She’d known it from the way they made her feel when she put them on. She’d known it from the way men had stared at her when she’d illuminated them. Her light and her powers of attraction weren’t the only thing slowing them in their tracks.
“Damn you, Scythe.”
Gritting her teeth, she grabbed a boot. Pointing her toes, she slipped her foot inside. The soft leather hugged her toes, and the support pressed into her arch. She had to fight back a moan when she dragged the long zipper up to nearly her knee.
The second one was even worse.
By the time she swung her cape around her shoulders, her black hipsters were wet in the crotch. Her belt felt heavy with her weapons, and her bra was binding.
Her nipples tightened as she looked at the rumpled bed.
Dark versus light. Good versus evil.
She didn’t feel like she’d lost this round, but she certainly wasn’t the victor. She was lucky to come out alive and intact, but he’d warned her about the next time.
If there was a next time.
She bit her lip. She’d failed to find any clue to his identity, but he’d exposed too many of her secrets. The boots, her skin, her tactics, her sexual triggers…
She fingered the rock of her necklace where it had settled between her breasts. He’d warned her away, but she had to find out something about him. Without leverage of her own, this man, the cold-bladed Scythe, could own her.
