Temporary Superheroine by Irene Vartanoff

indie ebook cover

Chloe Cole wants to stop the crazy dreams she's having—that she's a costumed superheroine who flies and shoots power bolts out of her fingers to do battle with a menacing supervillain. And what about the weird comic book artwork spam that arrives on her computer? And the reports in the media about supervillain sightings? Is Chloe, a struggling webcomics artist, the cause of real-life chaos? To stop her life from imploding even more, Chloe desperately agrees to a stint on a television superhero game show that puts her in intimate contact with an enigmatic comic book company executive, and gives her a chance to question a beloved comics icon. But Chloe must cross over to a bizarre mirror universe to find answers—and start living her dreams. On the hunt for a supervillain with a bad attitude and for a brilliant comic book creator with a grudge against society, Chloe needs all the help she can get to save two universes.

PG-rated nonstop comic book style adventure set in two universes, with plenty of super-powered battles and recognizable classic comic book scenarios—and some iffy romance thrown in.


Chloe Cole: Reluctant possessor of super powers, snarky 25-year-old with parent and boyfriend issues

Roland Kirby: Eager comics fanboy, dependable partner in other world adventures, ex-boyfriend who won't go away

Eric Wood: Suspiciously charming comic book company CEO, possible secret villain, questionably honest potential lover and confidant

Jovial Jerry Fine: Beloved elderly icon of the comic book world, benign but skeptical participant in fast-paced adventures

Diabolical Dave McCay: Maverick comic book artist, troublemaking genius

Bodacious Barb: Knows the secrets behind the comics, doesn't give a d**n

The Purple Menace: Supervillain, mad scientist, wants to take over the world—make that two worlds

Irene Vartanoff


Award-winning author Irene Vartanoff combined her love of comic books and romances by working for Marvel Comics and DC Comics as well as Harlequin, Bantam, Berkley, and My RomanceStory.com. As a teenager, her letters to the comic editors caused such a sensation she was incorporated into the storylines of several comic books, notably, Metal Men and The Flash. Dubbed "Poison Ivy" at DC Comics, she received a new sobriquet when she took an editorial position at Marvel Comics, working closely with Stan Lee, who named her "Impish Irene." Following a long editorial career in romance publishing, Irene turned to writing novels. Her first superhero adventure novel, Temporary Superheroine, was quickly followed by her first sweet contemporary romance novel, Captive of the Cattle Baron. Book 2 of the Temporary Superheroine series, Crisis at Comicon, is available for pre-order, and so is her first women's fiction novel, Summer in the City. Book 2 of the Selkirk Family Ranch series is coming soon. Irene is also the author of several romance graphic romance novellas, including Breaking All the Rules and The Egyptian’s Texas Spitfire. Under her comic book nom de plume, Poison Ivy, she contributes to the MyRomanceStory.com blog. A lifelong East Coast resident, Irene currently lives in a forest of tall oaks in the wilds of West Virginia.
