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!!!

More Harlequin Intrigue Stories

Posted in Latest News on June 21st, 2012 by Cynthia Eden

Hi, everyone!  I’ve got my contracts in hand, so I can announce…I’ll be writing more Harlequin Intrigue titles!

Originally, I’d signed on to do two books in my Shadow Agent series for Intrigue (and I’m super pumped about those military based RS titles), but now I will be doing four books in that series. The books are all plotted out and planned (books 1 and 2 are done, and I’ll soon start work on books 3 and 4).  I do know that the first book, ALPHA ONE, will be out in early 2013, and so will book two, GUARDIAN RANGER. I think that the 3rd and 4th books will be out in late 2013, but I can’t confirm those dates yet.  But what I can say…I’m excited to be writing more Intrigues! And I sure hope readers enjoy the stories!

And, speaking of excitement…don’t forget that my ANGEL BETRAYED release party is on 6/26/12.  Make plans to come by and enter all of the giveaway fun that will be happening.  Bad boy hero Sammael (Sam) will be out in the reading wild come Tuesday!

Some News To Share

Posted in Latest News on March 8th, 2012 by Cynthia Eden

I’ve got some great news that I am so excited to share with you–I’ve been offered a two-book deal with Harlequin Intrigue!  Yay!!

And, before I get too far into this news, I think I need to share a little backstory with you…

When I first turned my attention to seriously pursuing a career in writing, I entered a contest sponsored by Harlequin Intrigue. You see, I loved Intrigues. I loved (and still love) the perfect balance of suspense and romance.  I love mystery. I love tension. I love action. So, yes, I totally fell for these books. 😉

But back to the story I was rambling about…

I entered a contest sponsored by Harlequin Intrigue about, oh, ten years ago.  At that point, I wasn’t sure how strong my writing was. I wasn’t sure if I’d be able to follow my dream and pen novels. I just knew–I want to give this a shot.

Um, yes, I didn’t win that contest.  But I did get a request from a full from an editor as a result of my entry.  That request mattered so much to me–it gave me the confidence to keep writing. I realized that my dream could be possible. I could create these characters and these worlds in my head. I could do it.

So, flash forward ten years. I am writing my paranormals, writing about my killers, and I’m so very happy to be able to spend my days telling stories. Doing the thing that I love!

And now–let’s get back to this Harlequin Intrigue deal–a deal that I’ve been waiting to get for 10 years. (Hey, I can be a very patient girl! I’m also a girl doesn’t forget where her dreams started.)

The books that I am writing for Harlequin Intrigue will be intense reads–romantic suspense with a definite military edge.  The first book has the tentative title of ALPHA ONE, and it’s due to release in January of 2013.  Right now, my agent told me that the second book is scheduled to come out in February of 2013. (If anything changes, I’ll be sure to let you know.)

My hero is a SEAL (sexy SEAL!), and he works for a special unit called the EOD (Elite Operations Division).  The men–and women–in the EOD are the best of the best. They specialize in hostage rescue and unconventional warfare. Composed of individuals from a variety of military backgrounds—SEALs, Rangers, Delta Force—this unit never backs away from a challenge (and I do plan to give them plenty of challenges!).

I’m nearly finished with the draft of the first book now, and I’m having such a great time with this story.  I sure hope readers will enjoy ALPHA ONE–hot hero, tough heroine, danger, passion–come on, doesn’t that sound like fun?

Time for me to get back to work. Thanks for letting me share my news with you!
