Secret Identity [Identity Series Book 1]
Brenda McKay has no man in her life, and she really doesn't have time for one. That's not a problem, since Brenda's new job responsibilities keep her too busy for any sort of social life. But the day she is saved by a strange man who calls himself The Defender is the day her heart will never be the same. Lorne Palmer has loved Brenda since they were in grade school. Shy, introverted, and the middle brother of two over-achievers, he has never really approached her for anything other than to help her with her homework. And to be there for her when her boyfriends deserted her. It isn't until he acquires his super powers and becomes The Defender that Lorne finally decides enough is enough. If he can't work up the courage to claim her as himself, perhaps The Defender can.
