The Superheroes of Heels and Heroes
The superheroes of Heels and Heroes are a varied lot. In fact, in the world it’s set in, the only requirement to become a superhero and join the local superhero league is that a person must have some sort of power. This means that superheroes with super strength work right alongside superheroes whose powers are pretty useless—or whose powers seem to be useless. Such is the case with the main character.
Brenda comes from a family of superheroes—worse, a family of useful superheroes. With the power to block sonic waves from affecting her—or, as Brenda likes to say, turn off her hearing—she views herself as very close to useless as a superhero. She shows up to parades and school events, but concentrates mainly on her outfits and appearance when in superhero mode. Outside of her superhero duties, she works as a pharmacist. And she’s rightfully proud of herself in that arena.
Since she views herself as a second-class superhero, Brenda isn’t prepared when a super villain comes to town that she is uniquely able to fight. Brenda will have to get over her fear that she isn’t a “real” superhero in order to win.
Justice is the opposite of Brenda when it comes to his superhero prowess. He possesses super strength and the ability to track supers who have used their powers recently when he is in the area. He has no doubts as to his ability to deal with villains on or off the superhero field.
But in his personal life, Justice is a bit of a mess. He has experienced a loss in his past, and is resolved avoid personal connections. A resolve that Brenda will test.
Howler is the super villain of Heels and Heroes, and while not physically imposing, he possesses a very useful power. His scream—or howl as he prefers to think of it—knocks out anyone in its path. Used for too long or against a weakened person, his scream can even kill.
Justice and Brenda are assisted by other superheroes as well, but must work in close quarters to take down Howler. But in working together, they are forced to confront more than just a villain.

Brenda is a second-rate superhero, normally more concerned with uniform fashion than defeating bad guys. But when a violent, new super villain declares war against her city, she suddenly finds her specialized power to deafen sound in high demand.
As if facing the destructive force of a new enemy isn’t bad enough, she finds herself paired with the powerful, yet emotionally distant, Justice. Forced to work at the side of the only man who gets her heart pounding, Brenda is not only in danger of losing her life in battle, but also her heart to a man who might not be able to love her back.
About the Author:
She writes about ass-kicking heroines and the strong heroes who love them. Her work includes the suspense-driven Otherworlder Enforcement Agency series which revolves around a group of paranormal cops solving crimes and finding love, and Don’t Bite the Bridesmaid, a lighthearted paranormal romance (Entangled Publishing).
Tiffany has an MBA in accounting and nearly a decade of experience in corporate finance. All super useful stuff for a writer who spends far too much time trying to figure out fun ways to keep her characters apart, and interesting ways to kill people (for her books—of course!).
