Sweet Christmas: Recharge with Jessica Jones Power Couple Jessica/Luke

Jessica and Luke basking in afterglow
Via nickmarino.tumblr.com

Have 13 hours to spare? Take it from me: You're going to need 'em all when you queue up Jessica Jones Season 1 on Netflix for the first time. Consider it a chance to recharge your battery as you stare transfixed at the screen, because Krysten Ritter and Mike Colter are impossible to tear your eyes away from as reluctant superheroes and power couple Jessica Jones and Luke Cage.

Sure, to their minds, Jessica and Luke are merely a private investigator and bar owner, respectively, just trying to earn a living and stay under the radar, but from the beginning it's clear there's so much more to them than that. And though their relationship is insanely complicated due to some dark, bloody history that ties them together, the two are clearly a perfect match.

But why tell you when I can show you? (SPOILERS for Season 1's Jessica/Luke moments ahoy.)

Here are 5 reasons Jessica and Luke make a weekend spent on the couch binge-watching Jessica Jones not merely totally acceptable but—in case anyone's asking—possibly even your sworn duty as a romance evangelist tasked with sharing word of good romances with the world:

Supergirl 1x01 James/Kara Heart-to-Heart: Ka-Pow

Note: This post may contain spoilers of the Season 1, Episode 1 pilot episode of Supergirl

James and Kara Captain's Log

Show/Episode: Supergirl, Season 1, Episode 1, “Pilot”
Ship(s): James/Kara, Winn/Kara (who knows which way it'll go)

It’s no secret that I’m a hardcore Marvel Comics fangirl.  That said, I’ve been a fan of all superheroes for as long as I can remember.  I have much love for DC Comics, as well and generally watch all things DC.  I currently watch Gotham, The Flash and Arrow and I was ecstatic when I heard that Supergirl was heading to TV.  But then I heard it was coming to CBS and I was apprehensive. CBS does not come to mind, these days, as the place for comic book tv. I was only nervous until I saw the extended trailer a couple of months ago. The trailer looked great and I couldn’t wait for the premiere.  It was a long wait for the premiere but it was so worth it!  It. Was. Awesome!  It was fun, exciting, surprising, twisty, empowering and uplifting.  And, there was eye candy so, you know, WINNER.

Welcome to H&H's daily news roundup! Grab a mug of tea and a scone and let's gossip about what's hot in the romance world right now.

Jessica Jones and Luke Cage hook up us in the first full-length trailer for Marvel's Jessica Jones, the whole first season of which will hit Netflix on November 20. Whereas sometimes it's weird the way I like to try to pick my 'ships as early as the show's description, here I feel justified in saying I'm eager to see what kind of romance could be in store for Jessica/Luke: After all, the two are married and in love in the comics universe. Thoughts on the trailer? Looking forward to David Tennant's villain Kilgrave? Were you one of the lucky few to see the first episode at New York Comic Con? TELL ME EVERYTHING.

H&H's own Jennifer Proffitt is warming up for a thrilling #XOXOConnects Q&A with Kresley Cole and Gena Showalter as I type this, so get your questions ready! Tell her I sent you when you tune into the Google hangout event tomorrow, Saturday, at 3 p.m. ET, as part of XOXO After Dark's “all-day online readerfest you can attend in your pajamas.”

Superhero Sweeties: Does the Translation from Page to Screen Change the Ship?

Peter Parker and Gwen Stacey from Spider Man 2

Superheroes and love stories go together like peanut butter and chocolate.  Virtually every superhero has a love interest (or two or three) in their comic book canon.  Peter Parker/Spider-man has Mary Jane Watson and Gwen Stacey. Clark Kent has Lois Lane and Lana Lang. Bruce Wayne/Batman has Selina Kyle and Vicki Vale.  Mr. Fantastic has the Invisible Woman. Everywhere you look, in comic books, in television shows and in films, a superhero has a love interest. 

Sometimes, there can be a touch of disparity between the mediums.  A couple might make it from comic book page to screen and be a success with audiences, as we’ve seen many times with Clark Kent/Superman and Lois Lane.  Other times, the hero is given a new love interest for the screen, such as with Tony Stark/Iron Man and Pepper Potts.

Romance News Roundup: Deadpool Trailer, #FreeTheBacon, Deals, and More!

Welcome to H&H's daily news roundup! Grab a mug of tea and a scone and let's gossip about what's hot in the romance world right now.

Wicked Ever After by Delilah S. Dawson

—Fans of Delilah S. Dawson's Blud series will be glad to see the return of Criminy and Tish from the first book in Dawson's October novella, Wicked Ever After. Isn't the cover gorgeous? Learn more about the book (available October 5, 2015) at Simon & Schuster. Not familiar with Tish and Criminy? Meet the power couple with our first look at Wicked as They Come.

The Deadpool trailer premiered (warning: it's the Red Band trailer, so NSF -work or -children) last night on Conan, and while Ryan Reynolds didn't get much face time (literally, his face was covered...or scarred), his voice was very evident behind the mask. The humor is dark, the action looks gritty...and we already appreciate the use of '90s hip-hop. What did you think of the darkly funny trailer? Have you added it to your to-be-watched list?

—Deal Alert: Are step-brothers your catnip? Alexis Abbott's Criminal: A Bad-Boy Stepbrother Romance is on sale for $0.99 on Amazon.* For more stepbrother romances, we have the evolution of the stepbrother romance (Clueless, anyone?) for you here.

—In a mock-PSA for Mashable, Kevin Bacon calls all Hollywood men to action: Free the Bacon. And by “bacon,” he means full-frontal nudity. It seems appropriate that this PSA should be issued on the day we're talking about euphemisms on the site. In all seriousness, let's have more male nudity—if Game of Thrones is allowed to have gratuitous boob shots, let's have some gratuitous male nudity. Just saying. Let's all #FreetheBacon.

—Do books get you in the mood to travel? These 7 books are sparking our wanderlust, do they sparks yours too? Scotland or Greece, anyone?

Time-Stopping Orgasm: Matt Fraction and Chip Zdarsky’s Comic Sex Criminals

Sex Criminals Vol 1 by Matt Fraction

Time Magazine awarded Sex Criminals (2013; Image Comics) by Matt Fraction and Chip Zdarsky the number one spot in its list of Top Ten Comics and Graphic Novels of 2013, and there are plenty of good reasons why.

In 2014, Sex Criminals won an Eisner Award for Best New Series, and there are plenty of good reasons why.

In 2015, Universal TV announced it had optioned Sex Criminals for a series, and there are plenty of good reasons why.

I just finished glomming issues 1-10 of Sex Criminals and—wait for it!—there are plenty of good reasons why.

The number one reason is the premise: A couple gains the power to stop time when they orgasm.

When I first heard about this comic, I was a bit wary. Its high concept premise sounded pretty gimmicky. And it is gimmicky—there's no way around that fact. Sex sells, eh? Despite my misgivings, the gimmicky angle plus my interest in science fiction romance and superhuman stories made it a foregone conclusion that I'd read it. When I became the happy owner of a tablet, and thus able to order the series digitally from comiXology, I took the plunge.

Don't forget that the Season 1 finale of Outlander (ahhhhh!) airs this Saturday and we'll be here for all your reactions the next day with the recap!

Lady Thor’s Identity is Revealed

Thor tries to pull out mjolnir in ThorYesterday, Thor writer Jason Aron revealed the identity of Lady Thor, which you can find out here. Last year when the news initially broke, it was met with mixed results. However, with this new information, it does raise an interesting point. Here's what we know without revealing the identity, for those not wishing to be spoiled:

At some point, Thor, through an unknown circumstance, has become unworthy of the mythical hammer, Mjolnir. 

Now we will unleash the spoiler bots upon the comments—so stay away if you don't wish to be spoiled! What event do you think caused Thor to be deemed unworthy of his hammer? We also know that the mortal version of Lady Thor is weakened every time she uses the hammer, what do you think of the idea of a superpower vanquishing the bad guys, but also harming its user? How do you think that changes the narrative and what examples can you think of in romance?

Let us know in the comments!

Move Over Hulk and Hawkeye: Why I’m Here for Avengers’ Black Widow and Winter Soldier

Black Widow in Avengers
Source: mtv.com

Hawkeye/Natasha. Bruce Banner/Natasha. And here I am about to sally forth with my own 'ship manifesto. I know what it looks like: We're gleefully, even shamelessly, pairing Black Widow up with everything in pants because she's the only female member of the movieverse Avengers. Let me get three things out of the way. 1.) Despite the off-color comments some castmembers have made, it's safe to say the Avenger most likely to bed-hop is international playboy Tony Stark. Remember the stripper-pole-sex-plane? Oh, the exploits JARVIS must have seen. 2.) My chosen partner isn't even an Avenger. So there. 3.) Natasha Romanoff is a total badass and a strong character in her own right and she doesn't need a love interest to be validated.

But when you're this amazing, why shouldn't you have someone to cuddle up with at night? Or at least someone to clean your guns with and reminisce with about the old days when you used to be an evil secret agent. Nat is awesome. She should get it.

A Couple of (Steam)punks: Top 5 Steampunk Couples from Books, Screen, and Comics!

Today we're thrilled to host Pip Ballantine at Heroes and Heartbreakers. Pip writes steampunk romance along with her husband and writing partner, Tee Morris. Their latest book in the Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences series, The Diamond Conspiracy, came out last week. Pip's Eliza and Wellington of the Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences are an unstoppable duo between Eliza's cunning use of explosives and Wellington's knowledge. Pip is here to talk about other unstoppable steampunk couples that have made a lasting impression on both the silver screen and the page! Thanks, Pip!

Steampunk is a fantastic genre to write in: the corsets, well-suited men, steam-powered contraptions and airships as far as the eye can see. However, all of that is window dressing without truly awesome characters. As a reader, I always want to have a great character to connect with if I am going to spend valuable time with them.

The extra fun is when you find two characters that just click; they can be friends, lovers or even adversaries. You find the banter and tension between them totally addicting, and all you want to do is hang around and see what they will get into together.

Without further ado, I present my favorite steampunk couples...

The Year We Fell Down by Sarina Bowen—Sarina Bowen's The Year We Fell Down is currently $.99 in e-book at e-tailers including Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and iBookstore.*

Vulture has a neat profile on comics editor Janelle Asselin, who has launched a Kickstarter to help fund an R-rated romance-comic anthology series called Fresh Romance, whose debut issue includes “sundry stories ranging from a clandestine, queer high school love affair to an impeccably researched and illustrated Regency-era romance.” Issues will also include advice columns, behind-the-scenes content, and (now this sounds particularly cool) a fashion report. Are you a comics reader? Would you read a romance comic?

Welcome to H&H's brand-new daily news roundup! Grab a mug of tea and a scone and let's gossip about what's hot in the romance world right now.

Hard As It Gets by Laura Kaye—Deal Alert: Laura Kaye's Hard As It Gets is currently listed at $1.99 in e-book at e-tailers such as Amazon and Barnes and Noble. Looks like other books in the series, such as Hard to Come By and Hard to Let Go, are also a good bargain right now. (We have no idea how long these prices will last, so get them while you can.) See all of our Kaye coverage here.

—Emma Watson (Hermione in the Harry Potter movies) has been cast as Belle in Disney's live-action Beauty and the Beast film. First up, of course, will be live-action Cinderella.

—Starting today, H&H is re-reading J.D. Robb's sixth In Death book, Vengeance in Death, as part of a multi-blog celebration of the approaching publication of Robb's fortieth (!!!) Eve and Roarke book. Read all three posts in our theme-based re-read this week, and then join us February 10 for an Obsession in Death excerpt and sweepstakes you won't want to miss.

Romance News Roundup: Free KJ Charles Book, Gambit, and Game of Thrones!

Welcome to H&H's brand-new daily news roundup! Grab a mug of tea and a scone and let's gossip about what's hot in the romance world right now.

K.J. Charles and her publisher, Samhain, are offering a free book set in the Charm of Magpies world. Titled A Case of Spirits, it takes place between books 2 and 3 in the series.

—We will get to see Channing Tatum on film as Gambit from the X-Men Universe in October 2016 in Gambit's standalone movie. Gambit is a mutant who can mentally create and control pure kinetic energy. He often throws a card imbued with that energy. 

—Game of Thrones will also be hitting the big screen—but as a special IMAX event, not its own movie. HBO is releasing the final two episodes of the show’s fourth season in theaters, and the screening will also include an exclusive trailer for the upcoming season.

Top 5 Romantic Thriller Movie Heroes: Wolverine, Bond, and More!

Today we welcome author Susannah Sandlin to Heroes and Heartbreakers. The second in Susannah's Collectors series, Deadly, Calm and Cold, has all the elements of delicious romantic suspense: lost treasure, secrets, a ruthless secret agency, and two characters caught in the middle. Susannah is here to share her picks for the top romantic thriller movie heroes. Thanks, Susannah!

Face it, most of our romantic book boyfriends are action kinds of guys. Try telling Wrath or Zsadist of the Black Dagger Brotherhood they aren’t action heroes—but let me move out of the way first so I don’t get hurt. (And, granted, Phury’s kind of a wimp…don’t tell him I said that.)

Even our favorite gentrified historical romance heroes can aim a mean dueling pistol or horsewhip. The modern heroes? The ones who aren’t former paramilitary dudes might as well be.

“Thrillers” and “romance” don’t often go hand-in-hand in fiction; we usually turn to the big screen for that. When we want our hard-core action fix with a touch of romance, who do we turn to?

Marvel Announces Captain Marvel Movie, Super-Sized Avengers 3, and More!

Captain Marvel #1 by Kelly Sue DeConnick, David Lopez, and Lee LoughridgeBIG news out of Marvel's fan event today, including the fact that the Marvel Cinematic Universe's (MCU's) first female-led film, Captain Marvel, is in the works! While it's not the Black Widow (with or without Hawkeye) movie this fan had hoped to see (sigh), this is wonderful news for those of us who've been clamoring for a woman to finally get her own standalone story.

Other major announcements from Marvel Studios head honcho Kevin Feige:

  • Black Panther will hit the big screen on November 3, 2017; even bigger news, it already has a star—Chadwick Boseman, clearly our newest superhero crush
  • Avengers 3: Infinity War will be released in TWO parts, a year apart: Part 1 will be out on May 4, 2018, and Part 2 following (relatively) shortly after, on May 3, 2019 (WOW that all feels far away for more of our beloved Avengers)
  • Captain America 3's subtitle is “Civil War,” confirming all the rumors we've been hearing about what a beast of a film that'll be (Robert Downey Jr. will return as Iron Man for this one); it'll be in our eyeballs May 6, 2016 (Captain America: The Winter Soldier was SO good that we have high high hopes for this one)
  • Guardians of the Galaxy 2 will be released May 5, 2017, earlier than expected
  • Doctor Strange (which may or may not star Benedict Cumberbatch, as the Hollywood trades are reporting) will bow May 6, 2016
  • Thor: Ragnarok will see the return of both Thor AND Loki on July 28, 2018 for a third Thor standalone
  • Inhumans was perhaps the biggest Phase 3 surprise (at least, I hadn't heard any rumblings about this one) and will be released on November 2, 2018

Anybody else suffering from sensory overload? How are we feeling? Who wants to join me in clamoring for Battlestar Galactica's Katee Sackhoff (so terrific as Kara “Starbuck” Thrace)  as Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel?

ETA 10/28/14 4:46pm: Fiege had this to say to Entertainment Weekly in response to questions about a potential Black Widow standalone film:

Black Widow couldn’t be more important as an Avenger herself. Her part in Avengers: Age of Ultron is very, very big and further develops and further enhances her character. The plans we have for her throughout the rest of the Avengers saga is very, very big. A lynchpin, in fact, to those films. So instead of taking her out, instead of doing a prequel, which we haven’t done yet, we’re continuing the forward momentum and continuity of the cinematic universe of which Widow is a key, key part.

So it looks like that's a no on the standalone, at least for now, but that Marvel's aware she's beloved and will continue to play a big role in future films, which...hey, maybe a character as enigmatic as she is just works better this way. I admit I love what we've seen of her so far and that it's been great seeing her show up as often as she has.

“Nothing Lasts Forever”: The Avengers: Age of Ultron Trailer

The Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer is out, and things don't seem to be going well for our favorite superpowered crew. Here's the official synopsis:

When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, are put to the ultimate test as the fate of the planet hangs in the balance. As the villainous Ultron emerges, it is up to The Avengers to stop him from enacting his terrible plans, and soon uneasy alliances and unexpected action pave the way for an epic and unique global adventure.

Avengers: Age of Ultron will be in theaters May 1, 2015.

First impressions? Looks really dark and intense, huh? Exciting!

Except...are we the only ones disappointed there wasn't more Black Widow/Hawkeye? (Think we spotted them together in only one quick shot, which is a shame because we have hopes and dreams for that relationship in Avengers 2...)

Friday Beefcake: Chris Pratt

Chris Pratt for Men's HealthBy now, everyone has seen or read about Chris Pratt's amazing body transformation for his role as Star-Lord in Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy. At first, Pratt was given a hard time for his body pictures he shared on social media...and his regrettable male version of a duck face. Now, however, people are sitting up and taking notice of the body Pratt shows off in GotG. And we're happy to help him celebrate his lifestyle change and body transformation—as well as the success of Guardians of the Galaxy at the box office!

Do you like Chris Pratt's new transformation (both in his career shift from comedian to action star, and his body)?

What the Heart Wants: Summer 2014’s Can’t-Miss Romance Books, Movies, and Shows

Team H&H eats, breathes, and sleeps romance, but even we have trouble keeping track of all the amazing content released throughout the year. To make life a little easier for all of us, we’ve compiled a must list of some of our most anticipated books, movies, and television shows for July and August. Let us know what you think, whether it’s showering us with praise or educating us about what we’ve missed (or both)!

Ray Donovan (television)
While it looks like the Terry/Frances relationship that H&H’s Wendy the Super Librarian was rooting for is over (poor Frances!), Liev Schreiber alone is enough to tune in to the Season 2 premiere of Ray Donovan. (Premieres at 9 p.m. ET on Showtime)
  Masters of Sex (television)
Thanks to history and human sexuality classes, we always knew where William Masters and Virginia Johnson’s relationship was going. And sure enough, in Masters of Sex Season 2, their research isn’t all that’s going to new heights. (Premieres at 10 p.m. ET on Showtime)
