Heroes meets Kick-Ass in this brilliant and hilarious debut about a girl who just wants to save the world...
Bremy St James, daughter of billionaire Atticus St James, has been cut off from the family fortune and is struggling to survive in a world that no longer holds its breath every time she buys a new outfit. To make matters worse, her twin sister is keeping secrets, loan sharks are circling, and the man of her dreams — a newspaper reporter — is on assignment to bring down everyone with the last name St James.
Things are certainly looking bleak for the down-and-out socialite until a good deed throws her into the path of the city’s top crime-fighter, Dark Ryder. Suddenly, Bremy has a new goal: apprentice to a superhero, and start her own crime-fighting career.
Ryder has no need for a sidekick, but it turns out the city needs Bremy’s help. Atticus St James is planning the crime of the century, and Bremy may be the only one able to get close enough to her father to stop him.
Now all she needs to do is figure out this superhero thing in less than a month, keep her identity secret from the man who could very well be The One, and save the city from total annihilation.
Well, no one ever said being a superhero would be easy...

Describe yourself what is your worst and best quality?
I’m a little eager…and a little impulsive. I’m the type of girl who will jump headlong into a snake pit if the cause is just…or I’m bored.
What is the one thing you wish other people knew about you?
I have a brain.
What is your biggest secret something no one knows about?
My father is evil…like big-time, megalomaniac, I’ve got a laser and I’m not afraid to use it, evil.
What are you most afraid of?
Never proving myself to be anything more than a pampered socialite.
What do you want more than anything?
To start a new life with my twin sister away from my father.
What is your relationship status?
It’s complicated. I`ve met this great guy, but he doesn`t know about my secret identity.
How would you describe your sense of fashion?
Currently? Designer thrift.
How much of a rebel are you?
I’m all rebel baby. H to T. Well, except for when it comes designer labels. There’s something to be said for quality.
What do you considered to be your greatest achievement?
Paying my rent.
What is your idea of happiness?
My twin, Jenny, and me with a pitcher of sangria.
What is your current state of mind?
I’m not going to lie. I’m a little on edge…like a puffed up cat chasing invisible mice.
What is your most treasured possession?
The bracelet that matches my sister’s.
What is your most marked characteristic?
Gumption…like the kind of gumption that wins reality TV shows.
What is it that you, most dislike?
Which living person do you, most despise?
My father – we have Shakespearian-sized issues.
What is your greatest regret?
Leaving my twin sister behind to start my new life.
What is the quality you most like in a man?
A well-defined six-pa— I mean, brains. I meant to say brains.
What is the quality you most like in a woman?
Who is your favorite hero in fiction?
Which living person do you most admire?
Dark Ryder. Crime fighter. Mystery woman. Superhero. She has been keeping the city safe for nearly three decades. Nobody knows actually how she can swing from tall buildings and punch bad guys through brick walls, but it doesn’t matter. All that matters is that she is the hand that holds this city from toppling into hell. Oh yeah.
If you could change one thing about yourself what would it be?
My public image. I’m not the girl who hand-glides into parties wearing a tutu and a tiara anymore. Don’t get me wrong. That girl was awesome. But I’ve grown. I want to make a difference. Now, if only I knew how to go about doing that. Don’t worry. Something will come to me. It always does.
What is your motto?
Fflyddlon a y gorfin – Faithful to the end
Auralee Wallace has played many roles in her life, including college professor, balloon seller, and collections agent. She is now living her dream of writing humorous women’s fiction. When this semi-natural blonde mother of three children (and psychiatric nurse to two rescue cats) isn’t writing or playing soccer, she can be found watching soap operas with lurid fascination and warring with a family of peregrine falcons for the rights to her backyard.
