Excerpt: Staying home with the kids when your wife fights crime...
"A super villain at the top of his game must choose between the world he wants and the woman he loves.
If you believe the rumors you know that Doctor Charm, the wickedly sexy super villain, retired in shame seven years ago after his last fight with the super hero Zephyr Girl. The fact that the charming Evan Smith-father of four and husband of the too-beautiful-to-be-real Tabitha, bears a resemblance to the defeated Doctor is pure coincidence. And, please, ignore the minions.
Everything is perfect in the Smith household, until Tabitha announces her return to work as a super hero. Evan was hoping to keep her distracted until after he rigged the 2012 presidential election, but - genius that he is -Evan has a backup plan. In his basement lab, Evan has a machine whose sole purpose is keeping Tabitha hungry for him. But children and labs don't mix. The machine is broken, and Tabitha storms out, claiming she no longer knows him. World domination takes a back seat to meeting his daughters' demands to get Mommy back right now.
This time his genius isn't going to be enough-he's going to need both his evil alter-ego, and the blooming super abilities of his children to save his wife. But even his most charming self might not be enough to save their marriage." ~ From Goodreads
Funny, witty and romantic! I've never come across a plot like this! This is sort of in the superhero fan fiction area! Something I would have killed to have had a chance to read when I was a geeky teen. Okay, so we have The Avengers and all the superheroes involved ( Thor, Iron Man, Captain America and so on... ) , and then we have Super Villains and let's not kid our selves we have the occasional wet dream of the bad guy going good just for us - cue in Even Villains Fall In Love!
Evan is such a yummy deliciously still little bit evil villain, Doctor Charm ( got to love all the hero/villain names in this book! ), named after his multiple charms, awestruck good looks, killer smile, high IQ, that Dior suit and a weird array of multicolored minions. Having a guy like Evan fall for you head over heals sure makes for yummy read! I absolutely loved how the book was only in Evan's point of view, each chapter starting with a rather lusty/romantic memory of Zephyr Girl. Though I feel I need to point out there is no sex in this book ( what?!? Yeah I know, right! ).
The romance was built on Evan's idea of him not deserving her so he created a machine to make her love him, so we begin seven years later and the machine breaks creating all kinds of chaos - and in the middle of that chaos is Evan coming to grasps with possibly loosing his gorgeous wife, who's behavior changed drastically and raising their five year old quads alone. Of course romance need a happy ending, and love prevails again even for a criminal mastermind. ;)
