RAFFLES TO RATTLES
The Celebration Township, book 8
by Stacy Eaton
A mask, a makeup brush, and amazing powers. It’s all in a days work for supermodel turned superhero, Karma.
Silke Butters lived within the glitz and glamour of the modeling world, until the day that world was turned upside down. Suddenly embodied with superpowers, she finds herself thrust into a world of heroes and villains, each enhanced with powers of their own. As Silke’s powers begin to grow she finds herself caught in the middle of a tug-of-war between both a subdivision of the U.S. government known as Shadow Company, and a ruthless terrorist organization known as The Sin Squad. Both entities want the “enhanced” for their respective teams with Silke as the main prize. To disguise her famous face, and protect those that she loves, Silke invents an alter ego. Karma is born of necessity to decide the fate of those who are ill-intentioned and empower others with hope. With the help of her former flame Joe Riggs, and her computer hacker friend Maki, Silke develops a heroes call-to-action to battle the dark force that threatens to annihilate humanity. Karma, the 1st in a 5 part series, blends the over-the-top punch of popular comic book stories, with the literary nuance of an urban fantasy novel. A genre-blending roller coaster ride, Karma will delight both superhero fans and fantasy readers alike.

Event planner Jen Weaver loves weddings and romance — for other people. She’d rather focus on her career and leave the emotional stuff to her clients. When her best friend asks Jen to plan her wedding, resisting best man Liam Galloway is not on the agenda, but he tests her willpower anyway. An unwanted intruder in her thoughts and desires, he is charming, panty-melting, and persistent.
Perpetual bachelor Liam feels something inside him click into place when he reacquaints himself with feisty, beautiful, and assured Jen. Unfortunately for him, marriage isn’t on her bucket list. Determined to win her over by any means necessary, the hopeless romantic proposes fun with no commitment, hoping he’ll sway her opinion on love.
Can Liam convince Jen that he’s worth the fall? Will Jen accept that a career and love are not mutually exclusive? Or will she realize — too late — that some things are worth the sacrifice?
