Posted in Latest News, Romance on December 3rd, 2013 by Cynthia Eden

For the next two weeks, I’m running a special sale on my werewolf/vampire romance, THE WOLF WITHIN. (We can all use a sale during the holidays, right?) The ebook is on sale for just .99 at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and All Romance Ebooks (and I’m working to get it listed at a price of .99 at both iBooks and Kobo, too).  After the sale ends, the book will return to a regular price of $2.99.

Want to know more about THE WOLF WITHIN?

Special .99 Sale!

FBI Special Agent Duncan McGuire spends his days–and his nights–tracking real-life monsters. Most humans aren’t aware of the vampires and werewolves that walk among them. They don’t realize the danger that they face, but Duncan knows about the horror that waits in the darkness. He hunts the monsters, and he protects the innocent. Duncan just never expects to become a monster. But after a brutal werewolf attack, Duncan begins to change…and soon he will be one of the very beasts that he has hunted.

Dr. Holly Young is supposed to help Duncan during his transition. It’s her job to keep him sane so that Duncan can continue working with the FBI’s Para Unit. But as Duncan’s beast grows stronger, the passion that she and Duncan have held carefully in check pushes to the surface. The desire that is raging between them could be a very dangerous thing…because Holly isn’t exactly human, not any longer.

As the monsters circle in, determined to take out all of the agents working at the Para Unit, Holly and Duncan will have to use their own supernatural strengths in order to survive. But as they give up more of their humanity and embrace the beasts within them both, they realize that the passion between them isn’t safe, it isn’t controllable, and their dark need may just be an obsession that could destroy them both.

Author’s Note: THE WOLF WITHIN is an adult paranormal romance. It contains werewolves, vampires, adult language, sexy times, and lots of danger. Please consider yourself warned. THE WOLF WITHIN contains approximately 60,000 words.

And here’s an excerpt from the tale…the moment when the hero stops being a man and becomes something more…

***

“You were bitten by the suspect.” Real regret tinged Pate’s voice. “You know what that means…”

Bitten. No. The fuck, no. “Kill me,” Duncan snapped. Because there was no way he’d become a monster. The werewolves only existed to torture and kill. To slaughter. Their beasts dominated. They attacked anyone and everything.

Just like they’d attacked his family.

I won’t be like that. When he’d agreed to become part of the secret division, he’d known there would be deadly risks involved in his cases. He’d known the risks, and he’d long ago decided what he would and wouldn’t become.

“No!” Elias yelled as he surged forward. “Pate, dammit, don’t! You promised—”

Screw any promises that Pate had made to Elias. Now, Duncan remembered the feel of teeth tearing into his flesh. His neck. His shoulder. With all of those bites and the blood loss, he should be dead.

But he wasn’t. Because his body was already transforming.

If a werewolf’s bite didn’t kill you…if you had the DNA that would enable you to become a beast, then just one bite from a shifted werewolf would infect you. Transform you.

I don’t want to be—

“If you go rogue, I’ll put a silver bullet in your head myself,” Pate promised, green eyes glittering. Rogue. That was the term for werewolves who couldn’t maintain their control. They lost all touch with humanity. Beasts. Monsters. Pate’s gaze stayed locked on Duncan as the guy continued, “But you’re one of us, and no one is putting you down yet. We’re damn well going to give you a chance at survival first.”

Pate didn’t understand. He didn’t get it. He was a suit who saw the wolves from a distance. Duncan had seen the newly transformed up close and personal. The beast took over. It was all basic instinct. All need and bloodlust.

Pate looked up and nodded toward the agents around Duncan. “Take him to Holly. She can take care of his wounds and start to get a read on him—”

He snarled. Duncan’s body twisted and a fire seemed to burn beneath his skin. “Not…her…”

The boss didn’t know how Duncan felt for the pretty, little doctor. Holly was already his temptation with her sweet smelling skin and her fuck-me eyes. He’d tried to stay away because he’d known she was too fragile to handle someone like him.

If she hadn’t been able to handle the man he’d been, there was no way she’d be safe around his soon-to-be-emerging werewolf side.

“He’s starting to change!” Elias’s shout. “Drug him and get the guy in that ambulance!”

A needle was shoved into his arm.

Duncan kept fighting and trying to get them to understand, “Not…Hol…”

They were loading him into the ambulance. They weren’t listening to him. Holly was the last person he should be around. He wanted her as a man. He knew that a werewolf’s desires were just magnified.

And what the wolf wanted, he took.

Without thought. Without remorse.

No limits. No control. No conscience.

Just the beast.

He opened his mouth and only a growl escaped. Not Holly. Keep me away from her. I’ll hurt her.

He could feel the fire spreading beneath his skin. Hands were on him, holding Duncan down because the drug wasn’t working on him.

“Uh, is he supposed to be this strong?” One of the agents—Shane, he knew Shane, they played cards every Wednesday—asked nervously. “Cause this hoss is—”

The strap across his chest broke free, and Duncan lunged up.

Not Holly!

Another needle was jabbed into his neck. One straight into his heart.

“That’ll stop a tiger,” Pate panted out the words.

A tiger…

Or a werewolf.

Duncan fell back against the gurney.

Holly, I’m sorry…

His eyes closed.

MINE TO HOLD – Available 10/21/13

Posted in Latest News, Romance on October 2nd, 2013 by Cynthia Eden

It’s time to share the blurb for MINE TO HOLD! (This book will be available on 10/21.) I delayed a bit on sharing this because I didn’t want to post any spoilery info for those who haven’t read MINE TO KEEP yet. So if you haven’t read that book and you don’t want to know quite yet which couple will be featured in the next book, then don’t read on! Stop now! But if you do want to know which hero and heroine are in MINE TO HOLD…then just read a bit more…

Mine To Hold

MINE TO HOLD

She was one man’s obsession…

Nine years ago, Claire Kramer’s lover brutally killed her family, and he tried to kill her. She escaped, but she’s been haunted ever since that attack. Too afraid to trust another man and too worried that her past will catch up with her, Claire never gets too close to anyone. But then she meets Noah York.

He must have her.

Noah York is a man with secrets. The world sees him as a billionaire hotel tycoon, but Noah has a dark and dangerous side. For years, he worked covert military operations before he built his fortune. When it comes to death, Noah is a master. He knows that he should steer clear of Claire, but the white-hot attraction Noah feels for the delicate beauty is instant—and consuming.

He will never let her go.

Someone else is just as consumed by Claire—someone who will kill to possess her. And if Noah can’t stop the hunter in the darkness, he may just lose the one woman that he can’t live without.

***

MINE TO HOLD will be available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, All Romance EBooks, Smashwords, and iBooks. It is not available for pre-order yet (but I’m working on that now!).  The official release date for the book is 10/21/13.

MINE TO KEEP – Available for pre-order at Amazon!

Posted in Latest News on August 22nd, 2013 by Cynthia Eden

Love is the most dangerous obsession…

Skye Sullivan is trying to put the pieces of her life back together. She survived a brutal stalker and escaped his abduction, and now she is looking to the future—a future that includes Skye’s lover, billionaire Trace Weston. Skye thinks the danger is finally over for her.

She’s dead wrong.

When Trace’s past comes back to haunt him, Skye discovers that the man she loves isn’t quite who he seems to be. Trace has been leading a double-life. An ex-special forces agent, his military training turned him into the perfect killing machine. He made more than his share of enemies during his time in the military—and as he built his security empire—and one of those enemies is striking back.

He won’t lose her.

Skye is the one weapon that can be used against Trace—his only vulnerability. But he won’t let her go—he can’t. Trace will do anything necessary to protect Skye. Anything. Yet when she discovers the secrets that he’s tried to keep hidden, Skye’s pain and rage may send her running directly into the cross-hairs of a killer…

 

MINE TO KEEP continues (and concludes) the story for Skye & Trace. It is a full-length, sexy romantic suspense, and when it is released, it will be set at a price of $2.99.   MINE TO KEEP will be available at all e-retailers (and a print copy will be coming  in the future, too!) on 9/16.  Amazon gave me a pre-order option with this book (I am so glad b/c a lot readers had asked about pre-orders).  The MINE TO KEEP page is now live at Amazon.  😉

And, like I said, it will be available on the Nook, at Kobo, All Romance eBooks, Smashwords, and iTunes.  I am planning to distribute as widely as I can for my readers.

This will be the last story about Skye & Trace. I want to thank everyone for the incredible support that you have given to these characters. I received so many great notes asking about a longer story for Skye & Trace, and I sure hope you all enjoy this one!  And, while this book will end the main story for Skye & Trace, I do have plans to write more “Mine” books–more sexy romances about obsession, danger, and dark heroes.

Thank you, again, and have a wonderful Wednesday! I’m off to write more!
