For some time now I wanted to discuss superhero romances with you, because as always I would be grateful for any great recommendations 😉
Being an enthusiastic superhero fan is something of a more recent thing for me, I didn’t grow up reading superhero comics or watching cartoons featuring them (though I remember that when I went over to a guy friend’s birthday party in kindergarten we watched an episode of Spiderman). If I think hard when trying to pin point where my interest for superheroes started I go back to high school when I stumbled upon Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman. I LOVED how that show wasn’t just about the “boring science fiction/comic stuff” but featured interesting characters with relatable problems/thoughts/feelings and lots of humour, and most importantly I was a sucker for the developing romance between Lois and Clark *sighs* 😀 Yes, that was definitely the moment that opened my eyes to Superman and the appeal of superheroes 😉
And now that I am blogging I was curious to see if the love of superheroes transcended the world of TV and movies and was present in books as well and that’s how I stumbled upon Jennifer Estep’s Bigtime series, which is a very funny tongue-in-cheek superhero romance series I greatly enjoy. Then recently Entangled Publishing released the Holding Out For a Hero anthology – featuring 4 superhero romance novellas by Christine Bell – Ella Dane, Tamara Morgan, Nico Rosso and Adrien-Luc Sanders.
But I want more. So if you know of, or have read any superhero romances please tell me, I’d love to read more about the fantastic adventures and larger than life love of heroes and heroines who can fly, bend steel or breathe fire 😀
I only found this one and lonely list on Goodreads about Superhero Romances.
So tell me,
Are you a superhero fan?
Who is your favourite superhero and why?
Do you have a favourite series or movie, which is about a superhero?
