PLAYING WITH FIRE is out now! And, to celebrate, I’m giving away a Kindle HD on my Facebook page–so be sure to come over and enter for your chance to win!

And here’s a teaser from the book for you:

***

“I’ve dreamed about you,” he whispered. His hold was an unbreakable grip on her wrists.

At his confession, her heartbeat picked up and hope blossomed inside of her. Finally, finally, he’d—

“In my dreams”—a muscle flexed along his jaw—“you kill me, Cassie Armstrong.”

Oh, hell. “I told you. I’m not here to hurt you.”

“But you have killed me before, haven’t you?”

Cassie knew she had to be careful. She wasn’t like him. Dante could die, again and again, but he would just come back from each death.

He’d rise from the ashes and be born again.

While she would just—well, die. There would be no coming back for her.

With a thought, he could incinerate her. The heat that warmed her skin beneath his fingers could turn into a blazing inferno at any second.

“Last night, I dreamed about you.” His words were a low growl as he leaned closer to her.

The noise from the bar drifted into the room. The blaring beat of music. The scents of sex, blood, and booze.

“You stared right at me, then you stabbed me.”

His bad memories weren’t going to make things any easier.

“So maybe you should tell me why I shouldn’t just pay you back for that right now.” His breath blew lightly over the sensitive skin of her neck. “And end you.”

She shook her head, sending her long hair sliding over her shoulders. “Please . . .”

“Oh, I like it when you beg.”

Actually, he did. But that was another story.

“So you’ve had dreams.” Cassie started talking, fast, because she had seen him incinerate a man before. She didn’t want that same fate. “Well, I’m your key. I know you. Every dark spot in your mind? I can shine the light and show you—”

His mouth was just inches from hers. Inches? More like an inch. “What are you going to show me?”

“Everything,” she whispered, promised. “I can tell you the secrets of your life. I can tell you who you are, if you’ll just trust me.”

His gaze searched hers. Some people thought that his eyes were just dark—mirroring his black soul, but they were wrong. There were flecks of gold hidden in his eyes. You just had to look hard and deep enough to see them.

“Why should I trust a woman who’s killed me before?”

“Because I’ve saved you, too.” She’d risked so much to save him. “Believe it or not, you actually owe me.”

“I don’t believe it.”

Her lips trembled.

His gaze dropped once more to her mouth.

“Dante . . .”

He kissed her.

She hadn’t been expecting the move, and when his lips closed over hers, shock froze her for a moment.

Have a terrific Tuesday!!!

SINFUL SECRETS – .99 Sale

Posted in Latest News on August 2nd, 2014 by Cynthia Eden

Have you read SINFUL SECRETS?  This sexy romantic suspense tale was originally released earlier this year in the SINFUL SECONDS anthology, but now the tale is available as an individual ebook.

 

Blurb:

One year ago, Catherine Donnelly spent a wild night in a stranger’s arms. Sexy and mysterious, Jason August broke through all of Cat’s defenses. But when dawn came, she ran from his bed, and she never looked back, until now…

Catherine vanished from Jason’s life before, and he isn’t about to let her escape again. Cat will discover that the only man who can truly keep her safe in a world gone mad…well, that would be the man she married a year ago, on one hot Vegas night.

***

SINFUL SECRETS is sale priced at .99 for the next week. So it’s a great time to indulge in a little sin.  Here’s a teaser for you…

***

“Why would you care if I came back to Vegas?”

His golden eyes gleamed. “You know the answer to that.”

No, she didn’t. If she’d known, then Cat wouldn’t have asked the question.

“A whole year,” he murmured as he edged ever closer to her.  “And you only come back to me because you think I’m blackmailing you.”

Her heart was racing. She was starting to get a feel for his emotions then, all right. He’s furious.

“Is that what it takes to get you back in my bed, Catherine?  Blackmail?”

Catherine. Not Cat.  Her full-name sounded sexy when it came from his lips—even if he was furious. And he was so close now. The heat from his body seemed to wrap around her.

“Because if that’s all it took, I would have blackmailed you months ago.”

SINFUL SECRETS is currently available on the Kindle, the Nook, and at All Romance eBooks. The book is processing (and will soon be available) at Kobo and iBooks.

Enjoy your Saturday!

Free For the 4th of July – THE WOLF WITHIN

Posted in Latest News, Romance on July 3rd, 2014 by Cynthia Eden

I hope all of my US readers are gearing up for a great holiday weekend! Happy 4th of July! ;)   Since it is such a special weekend, I wanted to offer a free book to readers. So if you haven’t checked out THE WOLF WITHIN yet, then grab a copy while the book is free!

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.

***

THE WOLF WITHIN is free on the Kindle, at Kobo, and at iTunes.

Have a wonderful holiday!!! Enjoy barbecues, fireworks, and your family time!

I’LL BE SLAYING YOU – Available in Mass Market

Posted in Latest News, Romance on July 1st, 2014 by Cynthia Eden

Happy Tuesday!!! ;)   In case you haven’t read my sexy vampire novel, I’LL BE SLAYING YOU, I wanted to come by and announce that Kensington Brava has re-released the book in mass market form–yay!!!!

I’LL BE SLAYING YOU was originally released in 2010 (in trade paperback), so I am very excited that the book is on store shelves again.

 

 

Blurb:

Cynthia Eden returns to the realm of the Other, where the supernatural bounty hunters of Night Watch work hard and play harder…

Sandra “Dee” Daniels is a vampire’s worst nightmare. Sure, she couldn’t get up to five-six in the highest heels money can buy—not that she ever wears heels. But the monsters in her past and the stake in her boot are enough to keep most bloodsuckers interested in staying undead out of Baton Rouge.

But there are changes afoot on her turf. Rumors of a Born Master in town—a vampire so powerful he can make the streets run with blood. And a new face in Dee’s dive bars and alleyways—Simon Chase, a strong, sexy shadow with a haunted past of his own. Simon knows a lot about the dark side of Dee’s work. He knows even more about how to make her body spark with desire. But the hot lust shimmering between them is only the beginning. Because Simon also knows a secret that will change Dee’s life—if she can live long enough to uncover it.

You can check out an excerpt of the book here. ;)

Have a fantastic day!!!!! I’ll be back soon with more news!

MARKED BY THE VAMPIRE is here!

Posted in Latest News, Romance on June 9th, 2014 by Cynthia Eden

 

Vampires exist. So do werewolves. The creatures that you fear in the darkness? They’re all real. And the baddest of the paranormals…those who love to hurt humans…they’re sent to Purgatory, the only paranormal prison in the U.S.

His job is to stop the monsters.

Deadly forces are at work within Purgatory. The monsters are joining together–and their plans have to be stopped. FBI Agent Shane August, a very powerful vampire with a dark past, is sent into the prison on an undercover assignment. His job is to infiltrate the vampire clan, by any means necessary.

She wants to help the prisoners.

Dr. Olivia Maddox wants to find out just why certain paranormals go bad. What pushes some vampires over the edge? Why do some werewolves turn so savage? If she can understand the monsters, then Olivia thinks she can help them. When she gets permission to enter Purgatory, Olivia believes she is being given the research opportunity of a lifetime.

Olivia doesn’t realize that she’s walking straight into hell.

To survive, they have to rely on each other.

When the prisoners break loose, there is only one person–one vampire–who can protect her, but as Olivia and Shane fight the enemies that surround them, a dark and dangerous passion stirs to life between the doctor and the vamp. Shane realizes that Olivia is a woman carrying secrets–powerful, sinful secrets. Secrets that a man would kill to possess.

And Olivia realizes that–sometimes–you can’t control the beast inside of you. No matter how hard you try. Some passions can push you to the very limits of your control…and the growing lust that she feels for her vampire…it’s sending her racing right into a deadly storm of desire.

Welcome to Purgatory…a place that’s a real hell on earth…

Right now, the book is available as a digital release, but I am planning to make this title available in print, too. MARKED BY THE VAMPIRE contains 55,000 words and is priced at $2.99.
