Synopsis

Comic-book heroine Angelina Avenger battles dastardly criminals and alien invasions. But her creator Marlie Montague’s life isn’t as exciting…until Marlie opens the front door and finds the business end of a pistol pointed right at her. Her plan: to channel Angelina fast! Recruiting her new next-door neighbor, who looks like a rock-hard action hero, couldn’t hurt either…

The last thing Navy secret agent Joel Hunter expected on this surveillance gig was a luscious brunette bursting through his window. Now he and Marlie are blowing the doors off a full-blown conspiracy with more double agents than a Bond flick. But in between shootouts and squealing tires, the mystery that is Marlie is making Joel’s heart go thump thump thump. Is she a femme fatale or an endearing bookworm? And how does she leave him both shaken and stirred?

Praise

“Cartoonist Marlie Montague creates comics with government conspiracy themes. She’s received death threats from “patriots,” but only when the UPS man tries to shoot her does she realize that she’s in very real danger. Special agent Joel Hunter isn’t Marlie’s neighbor by accident. He’s been placed there by Naval Intelligence to monitor Marlie’s alleged subversive activities. One of Marlie’s comics has come too close to the truth, and now she’s running for her life, making Joel’s pledge to keep her safe seem almost impossible to fulfill. When Marlie assumes the personality of her alter-ego, Angelina Avenger, the six-foot-tall Amazonic heroine of her stories, she becomes a fearless warrior woman. The conversations between creation and creator add a strong element of humor to Wilde’s novel: think Danny Kaye in The Court Jester. Fast-paced adventure, sexy situations, and lots of suspense will make Wilde’s book appeal to a wide spectrum of readers.”
