DR. Z - Christa Tomlinson

QSFer Christa Tomlinson has a new MM superhero romance out, Arch City Guardians book 2: DR. Z.

Mike Zielinski has joined St. Louis’s superhero team under his new secret identity as Dr. Z. He’s partnered with Aiden Saliette, code name: Stardust. Determined to keep their relationship professional, Mike hides his attraction to his gorgeous partner behind a no-nonsense exterior. Until one night, in an unguarded moment between them, he reveals his secret desire.

Aiden loves being a superhero. What he doesn’t love is being stuck with an uptight new partner. But he grudgingly accepts Dr. Z’s help in order to stop the zealous attacker terrorizing the city. Long nights on patrol lead to shared intimacy, and Aiden realizes that behind his partner’s stern façade, is a scarred, vulnerable man longing for love. Aiden is tempted to explore the powerful chemistry that sparks between them but his own relationship fears and emotional wounds hold him back.

As partners united against evil villains, Dr. Z and Stardust are an unbeatable team. But the ghosts of their pasts might be too strong for them to defeat. The super-powered lovers will have to fight to save the day, and for a chance at a love that lasts forever.

DR. Z is Book Two in a steamy superhero romance series. It has heroes in tight pants, post-battle kisses, and a triumphant Happily Ever After. Fans of comics and movies who want to see their favorite heroes kiss will love this series!

Mike crossed his arms over his chest, looking as if he didn’t quite trust Aiden’s thanks. But he truly meant it, without any reluctance or sarcasm. Patrolling for villains was one thing, but treating a Player’s injuries when he could very well have considered his job done after stopping the attack was another. And Aiden appreciated it. “I’m serious. Thank you.”

Mike inclined his head once. “You’re welcome.”

Aiden made to walk past him and leave, but Zielinski grabbed his arm.


Aiden looked at him with his head tilted to the side in question.

“You’ve dodged the question twice tonight.”

“What question?” he asked as if he didn’t know perfectly well what Zielinski meant.

“Are we partners or not?”

Aiden turned his body, leaning into Zielinski until the rough material of the former soldier’s vest rasped against his bare chest. Head lowered, Aiden looked up at him from beneath his lashes. “You sound desperate to tie yourself to me, Beefcake,” he said in a soft whisper.

Zielinski dropped his arm as if Aiden had the power to burn him with his skin. He stepped back, away from Aiden, before he spoke again.

“No. I just want clarification. To know where I—where we stand.”

But Aiden wasn’t going to give up his game that easily. He took a single step forward, pursuing the big man into the space he’d tried to put between them. His thigh bumped Zielinski’s as he came an inch shy of sliding his leg between the other man’s. “You need me to set the rules for you?” He paused to bite his bottom lip, then slowly released it. “Interesting,” he whispered, drawing the word out so that each syllable was distinctly pronounced.

A flush crawled up the strong column of Zielinski’s throat, matching the pink that had returned to his ears. But he didn’t back down either.

“That’s not what I meant. I want to know if you and I are going to work together on this situation in the Playground.”

Aiden didn’t get why Zielinski, a newcomer to St. Louis with zero ties to the Playground, was so determined to get involved with the muggings, but if the man was willing, he might as well accept his help. And he had helped—Aiden couldn’t deny that. Saving him from getting hit by that stun gun their first time out, strategizing so that they eliminated the mugger’s accomplice, and giving aid to a mugging victim. “Fine. We’re partners. On this mission only,” he emphasized.

“Good,” Mike said with a stiff nod.

The matter settled, Aiden backed out of Zielinski’s personal bubble. He watched him for a long moment before he spun around to leave.
