Reckonings

 

Dr. Jamie Myers has tried outrunning her past, but now someone is stalking her, leaving her deadly messages. Once, she’d trusted the wrong man. So how can she rely on Davis McGuire, the fiercely handsome ex-SEAL she’s hired as a bodyguard? And how can she ignore the way his hands-on attention excites her?

One of McGuire Securities’ best, Davis wants to protect the sexy doc 24/7 and play by the rules. But as Jamie’s stalker grows bolder, Davis’s desire grows stronger. Soon he’s breaking all his rules—so he can uncover Jamie’s secrets in order to protect her…and discover the key to her heart.

Want to read an excerpt? Here’s a tease for you:

“You’re a million miles away,” Davis said.

Jamie shook her head. “No, I’m right here.” She’d put her head on his chest. It had seemed so natural to do that. The music was soft, romantic, and their bodies were swaying together. She wasn’t nervous. Wasn’t scared. She was just. Almost happy.

“If I said I wanted to kiss you… ” Davis murmured, “would you tell me to go to hell or…?”

She tensed. “Do you want to kiss me?”

“You’re a beautiful woman, Doc. Don’t sound so surprised. I know there are plenty of men who have wanted to kiss you.”

She stopped the swaying of her body and eased back, but didn’t lose her hold on him. She liked touching him. Odd, when she made a point not to get physically close to too many people. “I’m not talking about plenty of men right now. I’m talking about you.”

His eyes gleamed. “You’re a direct woman. I like that. I don’t have time for lies and tricks.”

Too bad. I’m all about lies. “You’re a man with secrets,” she threw right back. “So don’t give me that line. Everyone is more than they appear to be. We all wear masks for the world to see.”

His hold tightened on her waist. “You keep surprising me. Not many people can do that.”

The heat from his body was wrapping around her. Tempting her to get closer to him again. To put her head back on him, to let go, just for a little while.

“I do want to kiss you,” Davis said. He seemed to be staring at her mouth, and, nervously, she wet her lips. “I’ve wanted that for a very long time. Probably since the first day I met you.”

Was he serious? Or just trying to charm her into bed?

“But what do you want, Jamie?”

Ah, now he’d just called her Jamie and not “Doc” like he often did. She’d rather grown used to hearing his drawl when he used that little nickname.

And what do I want? She stared up at him and knew that—for an instant—she’d like to let go of her fear. To just feel. To just get lost in a man’s arms and in his kiss. It would be wonderful to act like any other woman. To simply let go.

Do it.

Davis McGuire was one of the good guys. He and his brothers helped people. They were all ex-military. Davis was a former SEAL. Tough, but good. True hero material. Sure, the things he’d done might scare her because she realized the guy knew how to fight hard and dirty but.

He won’t hurt me.

If there was any man she could trust, it should be him.

But you trusted the wrong man before.

Bound Paranormal Books – Kindle Unlimited

Posted in Latest News, Romance on September 2nd, 2015 by Cynthia Eden

I’ve been receiving requests from readers to put some of my older titles up in Kindle Unlimited, so I wanted to let you know that 4 of my “Bound” paranormal romances are now available in KU (this is for a limited time). So if you haven’t read these Bound titles, now is a good time to grab them.

All of the “Bound” books feature fierce werewolf heroes and strong vamp heroines–and each tale shows my take on a particular fairy tale (vamp & werewolf style).

BOUND IN DARKNESS is my take on Snow White…only the hunter hired to kill the beauty falls for her.

BOUND IN SIN is my vampire/werewolf spin on Cinderella.

BOUND BY THE NIGHT was inspired by Sleeping Beauty (with a bit of Wicked Queen fun thrown into the mix–I’ve always been a Wicked Queen fan).

BOUND IN DEATH…ah, for this one, Rapunzel was the inspiration (not the long hair part, but lots more dark times).

UNTIL DEATH – Available Now

Posted in Latest News, Romance on August 27th, 2015 by Cynthia Eden

I’ve got more book news to share!

UNTIL DEATH is now available at Amazon.  For Kindle Unlimited subscribers, the book is free! The regular price of the book there is $2.99.

UNTIL DEATH was originally published in the “Sweet Dreams” thriller anthology (this anthology was compiled by author Brenda Novak to raise money for diabetes research). The anthology is no longer available for sale, and this is the first time that UNTIL DEATH has been made available as an individual read.

Here’s the blurb for the sexy thriller:

When Ivy DuLane witnesses a murder during the madness of Mardi Gras, she enters a deadly cat and mouse game with the killer. The city has gone wild with the annual celebration, and Ivy has to rely on sexy homicide detective—and her ex-lover—Bennett Morgan for help. But with every moment that passes, the killer grows bolder, and the body count starts to rise. It soon becomes very hard to tell the innocent from the guilty…especially since Bennett is keeping dark secrets of his own.

MIDNIGHT’S MASTER – Mass Market Re-Release

Posted in Latest News, Romance on August 25th, 2015 by Cynthia Eden

I’m very excited to say that my bad boy demon hero, NIOL, is back in action! 😉

Kensington Publishing is re-releasing MIDNIGHT’S MASTER today. This book was originally published as a trade paperback in 2009, but it is now out in the book wild as a mass market read.

Midnight'sMasterbooks

 

Here’s the blurb for MIDNIGHT’S MASTER:

In a world of shadows, desire conquers all…

In this sexy, gripping novel, Cynthia Eden draws readers deeper into the realm of the Others—vampires, shifters, and sinfully attractive demons whose powers are matched only by their dark hungers…

Tall, dark, and formidable, Niol Lapen is the last demon on earth most people would ask for a favor, yet the sexy little reporter who wanders into his club dares to do exactly that. Holly Storm already knows too much about his kind, and Niol has no wish to help her get in deeper over her head. But working alongside her may be the only way to stop a killer, even as it ignites a primal desire unlike anything he’s known.

Holly has seen firsthand what Niol is capable of, but that doesn’t frighten her nearly as much as her body’s instinctive reaction to him, or the wild, fierce passion that would tempt her to follow him through hell itself. Something evil and relentless is prowling the streets of Atlanta. And as Holly’s search leads her into danger that even Niol could never have predicted, she’ll uncover a secret that could rip her world apart….

 

***

And, in case you are in the mood for a sneak peak, here is a little excerpt:

“No.  I’m not one of your demon wannabe sluts, Niol.  I don’t want to jump you in the dark so that I can have the thrill of saying I screwed a monster.”

Hit.  The reporter obviously understood more than she’d pretended about the human women who came to his bar.

“I don’t want to play—”

“Yes, Holly, you do.”  Her heart still pounded too fast, her nipples were still pebbled, and her cheeks were flushed—all from hunger.

Need. For him.

“I’m not going to play.”  Her hand dropped. “I’m going to do my job—and find out what happened to Carl.  With, or without your help.”

He stared at her.  Such a shame.  They would have been good together. The sex, well, it would have been pretty phenomenal. All that fire she had—oh, yeah, phe-nomenal.

Pity.  Niol shook his head.  “Sorry, love, it’s going to be ‘without.’”  And then he did the only thing he could do.

He turned around and walked away from her.   As he stalked toward the SUV, he felt her eyes on him.  His hand lifted, reached for the door.

“Niol.”

Oh, but the woman’s voice could get to him.  It was the soft huskiness when she said his name.  Like a stroke right over his groin.  But he didn’t look at her.  Niol opened the door.

“You have to care.”  Her voice sharpened. “You play the bastard, but Carl, he was little more than a kid, and one of yours.  You have to care—”

The laughter escaped then.  He just couldn’t help it.  He stepped back and glanced over at her.  “Have you forgotten so soon, sweet?  The incubus who took you that night—he was one of my kind, too—and I burned him,” the fire had been so beautiful, “from the inside out.”

She flinched.

His lips were twisted in a smile that he knew could chill.  “I kill my kind.” The incubus hadn’t been the first, and he wouldn’t be the last.  “I don’t go out on a damn crusade to save them…or any humans who are dumb enough to get involved in a world they can’t understand.”

“You’re a cold bastard, Niol.”

So he’d been told.
