Peek Inside To The Fifth Power

Three years ago, Zola Noite’s nemesis killed her sidekick and forced her to watch. The guilt drove her to hang up her cape. Psychologist Dr. Arturo “Fort” Forte specializes in super-powered mental health. He’s the only reason Zola can call herself sane—although the heat between them is slowly driving her mad. When three mega-villains escape the prison Fort oversees, he asks for Zola’s help, and she can’t turn down the man she’s come to love. As battles ensue and clues add up, Zola can’t help but question Fort’s true agenda and which side he’s on.

Three years ago, Zola Noite’s nemesis killed her sidekick and forced her to watch. The guilt drove her to hang up her cape. Zola knows one thing for certain, as a result. She will never be a superhero again.

Psychologist Dr. Arturo “Fort” Forte specializes in super-powered mental health. He’s the only reason Zola can once again call herself sane—although, truth be told, the heat between them is slowly driving her back to mad.

When three mega-villains escape the prison Fort oversees, all Zola’s best laid plans go up in flames. Fort asks her for help, and she can’t turn down the man she’s come to love. As battles ensue and clues add up, the one thing Zola trusts is called into question: Fort’s true agenda and which side he’s on.

Originally published at Book Lovers Inc.

I’m not too sure about the costume, or her pose on the cover, but I really liked the story. Then again, I love a good superhero romance. Actually, I kind of enjoy a good supervillain romance too, but that’s not what this is.

One of the neat things about the... ...more

I really enjoyed this, but wish there had been more worldbuilding.

I love comics and superheroes. so when I saw To the 5th Power, I really wanted to read it. I’ve had good luck with other Entangled Ever Afters, too, so I was quite eager to dive into this one. I enjoyed it a lot. The wor... ...more

****3.5 stars****

Superheroes and villains are always an entertaining read, and wrapping them up into an adult romance story brings that extra something to the table that the gals can enjoy. There was also a psychological element to this book that I wasn't expecting, woven through the characters a... ...more

A delightful ode to comic books, this novellette was written in a classic graphic novel style. I could clearly envision each panel in my head, and I really enjoyed the stylish action layout.

I didn't need to read the Author's Note at the end to figure out that she's a comic book fan - and particul... ...more

A must-read for geek girls who long for some good superhero romance! Dubbin pays homage to all the classic DC Comics tropes and character archetypes, while making retired superhero Zola Noite, The Watcher, a strong, funny, flawed and relatable heroine who can stand on her own. The forbidden roman... ...more

By Alycia July 09, 2014

A kick-ass superhero, a little bit of angst, a lot of sarcasm, and a sexy smart love interest. As Zola says, "Fort somehow turned the symbol of nerdiness into a visual aphrodisiac—Spanish fly in the form of solid black frames."

It's out now! Yay! Just $1.99! ...more

About the author

Shirin Dubbin

Shirin Dubbin is often called a "chic geek," and she likes the sound of it. Especially since she's a closet wallflower (albeit one with a super-heroine styled alter ego). When not working in graphic design or hosting The Fantastic Forum--a celebration of comics & speculative fiction--she writes stories inspired by the art, literature, international cinema, and anime she grew up with. In her own storytelling, Shirin spins tales of sci-fi and urban fantasy with romantic edge. The battle between good and evil, humor, and break neck action are ink to her imagination.
