FOREVER BOUND–USA Today Best-seller!! (And an excerpt from BOUND IN DEATH)

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

Thank you!!!! My FOREVER BOUND anthology is a USA Today Best-seller!

I want to send out a huge thank you to my readers.  You are phenomenal!  Thank you to everyone who helped me to spread the word last week about the sale.  Thank you to everyone who read about my werewolves and my vampires.   THANK YOU!!

And, yes, I am continuing with my “Bound” stories.  I have an official release date for my next BOUND book–BOUND IN DEATH will be available on 4/15/13.  This story is longer than the other BOUND releases–it clocked in at just under 60,000 words.  The story is with my editor now.

Here’s the blurb:

 

She can’t remember him…

He can never forget her.

For over two hundred years, alpha werewolf Alerac O’Neill has been searching for his mate, Keira McDonough, a woman who was taken from him and imprisoned by a dark vampire master.  He’s hunted for her, endlessly, using vampire blood to extend his life.  He has become a vicious predator, feared by all  the supernaturals.  His hold on reality seems to slip more each day because he is consumed by her.

Only…the woman he discovers in a small Miami bar isn’t the Keira that he remembers. In fact, this woman doesn’t remember anything.  She calls herself Jane Smith, and she has no memory at all of Alerac—or of her own past.

Now that she’s been found, Alerac knows that his enemies are going to start closing in on her. Jane may try to act human, but she’s not. She’s a pureblood vampire princess, incredibly powerful and incredibly valuable.  His enemies want to use her, her enemies want to destroy her, and Alerac—he just wants her.

If he can’t make her remember him, then Alerac has to seduce Jane into loving him once again.  Because now that he’s found her, he’ll fight hell—and every sadistic vampire that stalks the night—in order to keep her safe at his side.

Some bonds go deeper than the flesh. Some go beyond life. Beyond death.

Jane will soon learn that a werewolf’s claiming…is forever.

Special .99 Sale!! (And a free short story!)

Posted in Latest News, Romance on March 11th, 2013 by Cynthia Eden

Happy Monday!!!

As I prepare for the release of my next BOUND book (BOUND IN DEATH–due out the 1st week of April), I thought I should offer a sale on the other BOUND stores–so, right now, you can get my FOREVER BOUND bundle for only .99 at Amazon, B&N, and All Romance Ebooks.

 

The FOREVER BOUND anthology contains the following novellas: BOUND BY BLOOD, BOUND IN DARKNESS, BOUND IN SIN, and BOUND BY THE NIGHT (for a total word count of 90,000). These are sexy parnanormal romances–all inspired by fairy tales, but with a werewolf and vampire twist thrown in to the mix.

And, in addition to my FOREVER BOUND sale, I am also working to make A BIT OF BITE, my short paranormal story (11,000 words) free to readers. Right now,  A BIT OF BITE is free at Smashwords and All Romance E-Books.  It is processing at Apple & Kobo (so I am hoping it will be free at those locations within the next 24 to 48 hours), and then I will work at getting it free on Amazon & B&N.  (As it appears at other e-retailers, I will be back to post.)

A BIT OF BITE first appeared in the 2011 ENTANGLED charity anthology. I’m re-releasing it now as a free read.  Here’s the blurb:

A killer is stalking the streets of Crossroads, Mississippi, and it’s up to Sheriff Ava Dushaine to stop him. But when suspicion falls on werewolf alpha Julian Kasey—Ava’s ex-lover and the man who still haunts her dreams—Ava knows that she’ll either have to prove his innocence…or watch the whole town go up in flames.

Update: A BIT OF BITE is now listed for free at Kobo

Enjoy your day! I am off to write. 😉

New Release–BLEED FOR ME

Posted in Latest News on August 7th, 2012 by Cynthia Eden

Hi, everyone! I’m just about to begin my AUTHORS AFTER DARK trip (and can’t wait to meet those of you attending the conference), but I wanted to make a quick announcement–I’ve got a new release!  BLEED FOR ME (ebook only)  is available now.

 

 

The Greek gods are alive and well.  But, unfortunately for the gods, the humans have all but forgotten their glorious existence…and this fact really pisses off the all-powerful, immortal beings.

Apollo, the Greek god of the sun, takes one look at the mysterious Terese Lafitte and knows that he wants her. Even in this modern century, a god takes what he wants. But Terese isn’t a mortal, not any longer. As a newly turned vampire, her attraction to Apollo is downright lethal because desire arouses not just her body, but also her bloodlust.

But Apollo likes a woman with bite, and now that he’s found Terese, he’s not about to let the little vampiress out of his sight or out of his bed.   When Terese’s psychotic vampire ex begins to stalk them, Apollo knows that he will have to use all of his strength to keep her safe.  Lucky for Terese, Apollo has more power than she could ever have imagined.

When you trifle with the sun god, you will get burned.

***

BLEED FOR ME is available for .99. The e-novella contains 20,000 words, and it’s a sexy romance (a bit sexier than my BOUND books). I sure hope that readers enjoy my take on the Greek gods. 😉 If readers like this world, then I definitely hope to write longer stories for other gods.

And…for a quick word about AUTHORS AFTER DARK…if you are going to the con, I hope we get the chance to chat! I am looking forward to seeing old friends and making new ones. The conference looks fantastic!  I’ll be participating in several panels (one on Fallen Angels, one on Shifters, one on Romantic Suspense, and one on Writing Multiple POVs).  I’ll also be hosting an Ice Scream Party with Katie Reus, Virna DePaul, and Manda Collins.

On Saturday (from 2 PM until 4 PM), there will be a booksigning event at AUTHORS AFTER DARK–the booksigning is open to the public. So if you are in the New Orleans area, come by!

Venue:

Royal Sonesta Hotel

300 Bourbon Street New Orleans, LA 70130

 

When I come back, I am going to giveaway my AUTHORS AFTER DARK goodie bag (with books), so even if you can’t attend the conference, you still might win the goodies!  (And, with the release of HOWL FOR IT approaching, trust me–more giveaways are coming to this blog).

Enjoy your week!!!
