Book Description

In the world of the Talent Chronicles, kids with supernatural abilities, Talents, are taken away to government-run research facilities from which they do not return. In this sequel to HUSH MONEY, all Joss wants is to be left alone—with Dylan. But as more Talents are imprisoned by the government, everyone’s looking for a leader. Some look to Joss, some to her worst enemy, Marco, whose new criminal plan threatens Joss’s family and friends. Joss wants to stand up to Marco, but Dylan’s protective instincts are putting him in harm’s way. As the stakes get higher, can Joss find a way to embrace both the boy and her hero within?

Heroes 'Til Curfew contains strong language, violence, and some sensuality. It is definitely recommended for mature teen readers and up.


Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Susan Bischoff is an incurable romantic with a soft-spot for superheroes, those larger-than-life characters whose supernatural abilities set them apart from everyone else. Some are loved by all and known by none, some are woefully misunderstood and mistreated by those they serve. Traditionally, the life of the super-powered being seemed to her to be one destined for loneliness, and yet so deserving of a happily ever after.
The Talent Chronicles series, which tells the stories of superhuman characters in a world that fears and persecutes them, was born out of her desire for happily ever after in the superhero realm. For superhero hook-ups! Superhero Romance! These are stories for those who love romantic storylines in television shows like Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Smallville, and in movie series like Batman, Superman, and The X-Men. She's been known to say, "These are stories for people who wished Wonder Woman and Steve Trevor could have worked things out."
Susan lives in Tennessee with her high-school sweetheart husband, a daughter, two cats, and one, big puppy. She loves most everything girly: sewing, knitting, and other needlework crafts, baking, doll collecting, shojo manga, and is particularly fond of things that are pink. Another favorite pastime is replaying the kissing scene at the end of the BBC's North and South.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth the wait! September 1, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
In this much anticipated sequel to Bischoff's Hush Money Hush Money (Talent Chronicles) we finally get exactly what we've been waiting for--MOAR JOSS AND DYLAN! The whole he likes me, he likes me not finally comes to fruition against a backdrop of more evil plotting by Marco, which makes him a villain you more than love to hate--you want to destroy. If you thought he was awful in Hush Money, you ain't seen nothin' yet. Bischoff unwaveringly ups the stakes for all the Talents in Fairview who all want to mobilize--and want Joss to lead them. As I read this book I laughed, I cried, and I changed my mind about fifty times about what kind of Talent *I* want because she kept introducing new cool ones. This is a must read for fans of superhero romance.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic! September 5, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
After reading Susan Bischoff's first book, Hush Money, I waited so long for the sequel to come out. When I first started reading Heroes `Til Curfew, I thought "Hmm, this is going to be as good as Hush Money". Then I kept reading. As good as Hush Money was, Heroes `Til Curfew was so much better. The author made me feel like I was right there with the characters, through all the action, the emotional scenes, and the suspense. This book was absolutely fantastic! If you buy this book, I promise you will NOT be disappointed. It totally rocks!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great sequel September 1, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I gave 5 stars to the first book Hush Money (Talent Chronicles) and I believe Susan Bischoff continued the trend in this sequel.

We're thrown back into Jocelyn and Dylan's world where both want each other, yet everyone and everything keeps getting between them, including Jocelyn. Jocelyn tries to hold on to her father's teachings of "going solo" but eventually things get too hairy and she steps up to defend what she believes in.

Among the POWs switching between Jocelyn and Dylan, we also get a few from Marco, which makes the story that much more interesting. Characters get more depth in this sequel, questions from the first book are answered and the plot gets more tangled with NIAC and the rebel Talents.

I adored the relationship between Jocelyn and Dylan, how they had ups and downs and their drama never really lasted, how we didn't have to go through soapy drama before resolving "the issue" and how the relationship made Jocelyn grow. I also loved her dad, can't wait to get the scoop on that story.

I think the only little draw back I can find is that I am wondering when we will see more of NIAC, of this huge organization that is supposed to have a hand in everything. I feel like a NIAC x Jocelyn battle might ensue but I'm not sure we will get it. We do get a nice scene with a NIAC agent though, and let me just say, well played Mrs. Bischoff.

I would recommend a bit of caution for young readers though, this has a general "adult" feel to it, in the sense of urgency, death and Marco's obsession with Jocelyn.

I really enjoyed Hush Money (Talent Chronicles #1) so I jumped at the chance to review Heroes 'Til Curfew. And while I did like the book, I liked Hush Money better.

I love the premise of the Talents. I think the varying Superman-like abilities add such a good twist to the story. I liked how the Talents teamed up to fight the bad guys together. I liked the twist about the mole and Mr. Dobbs, which was surprising. I couldn't believe how evil Marco and his cronies truly were. I liked the sense of justice Bischoff imbues in her writing: everyone usually gets what's coming to them. I love that! I really liked Joss and Dylan in the first book and thought their mutual crushes on each other were sweet. I liked seeing their relationship develop into something more. I also really liked that Bischoff's characters did not automatically rebound from adversity. They had some trouble dealing with things, which was totally believable and realistic.

I felt like Heroes 'Til Curfew was a little too adult to be classified as a YA read. There were some pretty graphic (and long) fight scenes, and a lot of bad language. The bad language got old for me, and it had me wondering if teens really talk/think like that? I know I sure didn't talk like that when I was a teen---or now---and that kind of language cheapens a book for me. Yes, I know I sound like a prude.

Overall, I liked Heroes 'Til Curfew, although not as much as its predecessor, Hush Money. I will definitely keep reading the series, and look forward to seeing how Joss and Dylan's stories end.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good, quick read. September 27, 2011
By Emma
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is really good, and SATISFYING. Many quick reads with a romantic side let the romance carry the story, but here - while it is a major component, don't get me wrong - the plot carries itself. It's a fast-paced adventure, but doesn't feel rushed more than once or twice (and not very noticeably/memorably). I was in the middle of wonderful literature and on a budget when this came out, but there was no question after the preview: I made an exception, and (unlike with most quick read buys) don't regret it for a moment.

Go for it.

5.0 out of 5 stars LOVED THIS BOOK!!!!! September 4, 2011
By jadeen
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book was well worth the wait. I loved Hush Money with it's great characters that had depth to them. Heroes 'Til Curfew brought even more depth and emotions to the characters as well as giving you more of the smaller characters that were in Hush Money as well as new ones. The story line is continued perfectly, with a lot of excitement and emotions. The author wasn't afraid to write about sensitive subjects that are also true in real life and that is refreshing because a lot of books just gloss over these issues. Overall, this is a well written book and I highly recommend it. Be sure to read Hush Money first though. I can't wait for the sequel, hopefully it will come out a little sooner then this book did because it's so good you just have a hard time waiting to see what happens next.
