New Harlequin Intrigue – Secrets (Print Version)

Posted in Latest News, Romance on February 17th, 2015 by Cynthia Eden

For my Harlequin Intrigue fans…SECRETS is available today (in print). SECRETS is book 2 in the “Battling McGuire Boys” series…

In a world of lies, he’s the only man she can trust

Navy SEAL Brodie McGuire’s orders were clear: Get the hostage out alive. After spiriting Jennifer Wesley to safety, their terror and need ignited into passion. Mission over, haunted by memories of their night together, Brodie didn’t expect to see the Louisiana society girl again. Then she showed up at McGuire Securities.

Six years ago, Brodie saved Jennifer’s life. Now she needs his protection again. But he has no idea who she really is. On his family’s Texas ranch, attraction flares, taking them over the edge. As Jennifer’s violent past explodes in the present, she has to find a way to earn Brodie’s trust before her deadly secrets get them both killed.



Here’s an excerpt from the story:

A ghost from his past had just walked right through his office door. Brodie McGuire shook his head, an instinctive response, because he could not be seeing that woman. There was no way she was standing there. No way.

Usually she only appeared in his dreams.

She couldn’t have just walked into his office at McGuire Securities. She was far away, some place safe and no doubt with—

“We have a walk-in appointment that I was hoping you could handle,” Brodie’s older brother, Grant, told him. “This is Jennifer—”

“Wesley,” Brodie finished, then cleared his throat because that one word had sounded like a growl.

Grant’s brows climbed. “You two know each other?”

Yes, they did. Intimately.

“Well, that just makes things easier.” Grant flashed a broad smile. “Ms. Wesley, I will leave you in my brother’s capable hands.”

Brodie realized that he’d leaped to his feet as soon as he’d gotten a look at Jennifer.

Grant glanced over at him, a faint frown on his face.

Brodie offered what he hoped was a reassuring smile as he hurried around his desk and toward Jennifer.

Grant hesitated a moment more; then he slipped from the office. The door shut quietly behind him, and, just like that, Brodie was alone with the woman who’d been in his dreams for far too long.

Brodie almost reached out and touched Jennifer, just to make sure she was really there, but then he remembered the way desire had burned so hot and wild between them before.

To play it safe, he tucked his hands in his pockets and just inclined his head toward her. “Been a long time, Ms. Wesley.” He was impressed that his voice came out sounding so calm.

Her laughter sounded the way he’d thought it would. Sweet, light, musical. She hadn’t laughed when they’d been together in the Middle East. She’d been far too afraid for laughter. He’d hated her fear, and he was damn glad to see her like this…happy.

“And here I was worried you wouldn’t remember me,” she murmured. Her smile flashed, a wide, slow smile that made her deep brown eyes light up. “But I really think you can drop the ‘Ms. Wesley’ part, don’t you?”

Then she made a terrible mistake. She came forward and wrapped her arms around him. Her scent, a light lavender, drifted in the air as she hugged him. He probably shouldn’t have wrapped his arms around her and hugged her so tightly. Probably shouldn’t have inhaled her scent so greedily. But he did.

She fit against him, perfectly so. He’d thought that before, on that long-ago night.

Jennifer eased back and stared up at him. “You haven’t changed. You look exactly the same, even after all this time.”

He’d changed plenty. Most of those changes were on the inside, though, because he was good at keeping his mask in place. Brodie forced himself to let her go, when he wanted to hold on to her tightly.

That part hasn’t changed, either.



While the print version is available today (you can find it at your favorite bookstore), the digital version of SECRETS will be released by Harlequin on 3/1/15.

WANT ME – Available early!

Posted in Latest News on January 24th, 2015 by Cynthia Eden

I’m excited to say that WANT ME is now available at Amazon, B&N, Kobo, and All Romance Ebooks!! (The book is still processing at iBooks and Google Play, but it will be live there soon, too!)




Here’s the blurb for WANT ME:

She doesn’t play it safe…

Sophie Sarantos has a weakness for dangerous men. She doesn’t like safe lovers—she likes men with a wild, rough edge.  But Sophie may have attracted a lover who is too dangerous, even for her.  Someone is stalking Sophie, slipping into her home, watching her day and night. The stranger seems to know all of Sophie’s darkest secrets, secrets that should never be revealed.

Out of options, Sophie turns to ex-solider Lex Jensen for protection. Lex is part owner of  VJS Protection, Inc., and Sophie hires him as her bodyguard.  She thinks Lex is one of the “good guys” out there, but she couldn’t be more wrong.

He doesn’t play at all…

Lex has his own secrets. Dark, deadly secrets.  And as his feelings for Sophie grow, Lex knows that he is going to have to stop pretending to be a gentleman and, instead, he’ll have to show Sophie who he really is. A man trained to kill. A man too used to evil. A man who will take any risk…as long as he can claim Sophie.

Because there is one thing that Lex wants in this world…one person he desires above all others…Sophie. And no one will hurt her, not on his watch.



WANT ME is the second book in my “Dark Obsession” series.  WATCH ME (book 1) was released in December, and NEED ME (book 3) will be available in February. Each book features a different hero and heroine–all stand-alone titles.

Enjoy your weekend!!!

Taking her case is an easy but dangerous decision for Grant. Together they must race against the clock to find the real killer, who now wants them both dead. More dangerous, however, is their sudden, reignited passion. Grant will do anything for a second chance with Scarlett…while she’ll do everything to keep the secret she never wants him to know…
