A Desperate Fortune
The tales of two women's lives are divided by three centuries but are remarkably similar in many other ways. See more books by Susanna Kearsley

Book Description

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sparkling, sly take on superheroes April 19, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This little tongue-in-cheek (firmly) superhero story was a lot of fun. When I first read the synopsis, I remember thinking, ehh, how is Brooks going to make that funny with kids? As much as I generally like them, having one myself, I kind of think they can be story-killers sometimes. Here, something about 5-year-old quadruplets, a gorgeous semi-retired superhero mom and a she-thinks-he's-retired super villain dad makes for great hilarity.

Evan, aka Dr. Charm, is such a cute, befuddled, mostly-villainous genius. I loved that the story was told from his POV because he's got such a funny set of sliding morals. He knows why he should be good but doesn't really see why he has to be if he can find a way around it. He's even got his evil laboratory in the basement complete with minions (led by the warty six-knuckled Hert). He adores his perfect wife Tabitha, aka Zephyr Girl, and plans to make sure she stays his. Because of the way the plot was structured, there wasn't as much Tabitha in the book as Evan, but they had great chemistry and she was delightful as a working mom/superhero that came home to see what hubby made for dinner. I was so anxious to see if Brooks was doing any more books like this that I checked her website and saw that she's working on Every Hero Needs a Villain, which is Tabitha's story!

The four Smith daughters are freaking adorable. They're like smarter, cuter, funny versions of the Power Puff girls (how many of those things were there?). It could be that it's because when my brothers or I got yelled at, my mom never got our names right (yes, she called me by my brothers' names), but I thought it was hilarious that Evan thought about which daughter was which by their eye colors and favorite color.

4.0 out of 5 stars I Have a Crush on Doctor Charm! June 22, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
At first I wasn't sure what to make of a superhero romance, but within the first few sentences, I was hooked!

I am sorry to say that I am not immune to Doctor Charm's... uh... charm. In fact the entire story was completely charming! If the premise of a superhero falling for a supervillain isn't enough to intrigue you, throw in four absolutely adorable little girls, a smattering of genetically engineered minions, and then blur the line between good guys and bad guys and you have the start of EVEN VILLAINS FALL IN LOVE.

I found myself rooting for Evan and his quest to repair his marriage and win back his superhero wife Tabitha (Zephyr Girl.)It's not your ordinary romance by any stretch. It's MUCH better.

If you haven't read this one yet, you owe it to yourself to do so IMMEDIATELY!!! (As I turn up my Agree-With-Me Ray.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Totally fun! Can't wait for the sequel! April 25, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I fell in love with Doctor Charm right away. While it helps that I love a bad boy, he was also so incredibly likable that it's easy to see why they called him Doctor Charm.
The humor continues with a home filled with identical quadruplets just old enough to cause some serious trouble, even if their Mom wasn't already a superhero.
I love the relationships through this book, and the exciting way the book keeps you hanging on until the end.
Liana knows how to spin a fantastic tale, and at $3 this book is a steal, I'd gladly pay twice that for this gem.
Buy this book, get your friends to buy it, and join in the fun!

I can't wait for the sequel!

4.0 out of 5 stars Lots of Fun April 7, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
EVFiL is a fun, quirky story about the super villain who married the superhero. He's hot, she's gorgeous, and it was just the kind of scandal the world needed :D Only now they have four kids, Evan's plan to take over the world via the US presidential elections is falling behind schedule - and his wife decides she wants to go back to superheroing. Seriously, is this not the most awesome set up? But of course, everything goes wrong, and Evan has to decide between ruling the free world, and getting his wife back - and, of course, everything is not as it seems >:)

So, reasons why you should read this book:
1) It's funny.
2) If you like anything in the superhero genre, you will probably like this.
3) It's SO nice to have a romance novel(la) based on a married couple for a change. Romance does not end with a wedding, people!
4) It's funny.


Final Conclusion:
If you enjoy lighthearted romance, real family dynamics, and a bit of superhero magic on the side, this is definitely the book for you. It's funny, it's quirky, and I really can't wait to read the next in the series :D

4.0 out of 5 stars Super villains need love too. September 23, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The Evil Super Villain Doctor Charm settled down with his arch-rival Zephyr and had a family - four darling little girls - and has 'given' up his evil ways (mostly) and is living his happily ever after until the unthinkable happens. Now Doctor Charm is going to have to put his secret plans for world - actually national - domination on hold and dust off his Dior to win back his wife and save his kids.

This was a very cute story and I liked how Doctor Charm saves the day - with a little help from his minions and spawn. And I especially like the ending. All in all a fun read and yes, super villains need love too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet, Witty, and Entertaining April 27, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I learned of this author from an interview she did on Lindsay Buroker's blog and decided to give the story a try. It's on the short side for $3, and only took about an hour to read, but I found it to be a sweet romance and an entertaining story. I don't usually go for superhero fiction but found the story easy to get into. The writing is clean and witty, and I look forward to seeing more from the author in the future.

More About the Author

Liana Brooks once read the book GOOD OMENS by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett and noted that both their biographies invited readers to send money (or banana daiquiris). That seems to have worked well for them. Liana prefers strawberry daiquiris (virgin!) and will never say no to large amounts of cash in unmarked bills.

Her books are sweet and humorous with just enough edge to keep you reading past your bedtime.

Liana was born in San Diego and in addition to there has lived in Illinois, Colorado, Florida, Texas, Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina, and Kansas. We'd like to tell you where she is right now, but last we checked she was researching books on both Alaska and Africa.

Not only is the Amazon algorithm breaking trying to track this lady, but we can't tell you where to mail that daiquiri. Your best bet is to try Twitter where you can often find @LianaBrooks talking about her four kids, her giant dog, and plans for world domination.
