One Deadly Weekend… Back to Blog

Update: The winner of the Deadly Heat ARC and the Deadly Lies ARC is…Natasha A! Congrats, Natasha!

I interrupt this monster bash talk to bring you…ARCs.  I know, I know–my Halloween blog party has been about paranormal creatures so far. Ahem. I’m switching things up just a wee bit today. You see, I have two ARCs that I want to give to one commenter.

I have an ARC of DEADLY HEAT:

And I have an ARC of DEADLY LIES:

DEADLY HEAT is the second book in my romantic suspense series, and DEADLY LIES is the third.  Want to win them both?  I’ll pick one commenter to get both books…just tell me the name of the scariest book you’ve ever read–or the scariest movie you’ve ever seen.

See…simple!! Have a fabulous weekend!

    Hi Cynthia, This has been a blast this month. Thanks.
    Your question is an easy one, or I should say two. I can’t decide which was the scariest. Both books by Stephen King… The Stand and It. Make that three, The Shining, also by the master, King. All three are my favorites.

  2. The scariest movie was Halloween.

  3. Audrey A says:

    Alien 3 scared me really badly the first time I saw it. Also I thought that The Grudge was super scary.

  4. cait045 says:

    The scariest movie I saw was Signs. It gave me way too many chills

  5. Joan says:

    Oooh, pick me, pick me!! Okay, the “creepiest” book I read and movie I saw was Misery. It freaked me out when I realized what Kathy Bates was doing with the block of wood and the sledge hammer!!!! She was a little batty. :)

  6. Miranda says:

    Oh I am so excited about Deadly Heat and Deadly Lies! I think the scariest book I have read is “As The World Dies: The First Days: A Zombie Trilogy” by Rhiannon Frater. This book was scary and intense! I loved it! Not a big zombie fan but I loved this series!

  7. Denise T. says:

    I loved the first book in this series and can’t wait for more. I would love to win!
    There are soo many movies I’ve watched that are scary but I’d have to say that Halloween would be the scariest – the remake that is!
    Scariest book I guess would Christine Feehan’s Dark Prince, the first time I read it was really creepy, she was the first to have some major bad vamps (Carpahians), since then I’ve read so many different paranormal books that they don’t scare me anymore!

  8. Aimee says:

    This is silly but to this day I won’t watch the original Nightmare on Elm Street because it freaked me out so bad the first time (could be because I was but a tween back then but still…).

  9. Melanie S. says:

    the scariest movie was Saw IV and I couldn’t sleep after it…
    greetings, Melanie S.

  10. April S says:

    OOOHH I would love to win an ARC from you 😉 As for the scariest movie(s) I have ever seen was The Shining and Carrie…I cannot watch Stephan king movies. Really cant read his books for his writings scare me and I love sleeping LOL

  11. Lisa Freeman says:

    I tend to shy away from scary books so lately the scariest I’ve read was Deadly Fear. I chewed off all my fingernails it had me so hyped up!

    As a teenager I thought Flowers in the Attic by VC Andrews was scary.

  12. Jodie (JoJo) says:

    1st- Man, how have i missed all of this awesomeness


    The scariest movies for me. any/ALL of the SAW movies. I watched the first one, and it freaked me out so much…….*cringes* It is just to close to reality, and the fact that you know people out there actually do that crap!


  13. Angie D. says:

    Scariest book was probably a toss-up between The Shinning by Stephen King and Skin by Ted Dekker. Movie was My Little Eye about a group of people trapped in a house and being watched by a video-cam. Creepy!

  14. elaing8 says:

    A Nightmare on Elm Street was the scariest movie I’ve seen. Haven’t checked out the new version yet.

  15. Linda Henderson says:

    I think the scariest movie I’ve ever seen is The Exorcist, that movie scared me to pieces.

  16. Natasha A. says:

    OMG Scariest book? It was written by John Saul, and it was called the Homing. I just remember this scene with all these wasps, bees, insect things in the walls of the house! I should also point out that I don’t read scary books 😀

    This is an awesome contest!

  17. JoAnna says:

    I think the Saw movies are the scariest movies I have seen.

  18. Nikki Barrett says:

    The scariest book I’ve read?? probably something by Bentley Little. He writes some pretty scary stuff, it messes with your mind.

  19. Edie Ramer says:

    Ack! I’m probably too late for the contest, but the scariest movie is The Birds. It’s scary because I see flocks of birds often as I walk. I don’t normally see men running around with bloody axes. Thank God. And some of those blurbs look pretty mean, too.

  20. Jacki says:

    Oh – I can’t wait to read your newest books, Cynthia.

    The scariest movie that I ever saw was (honestly) “Something Wicked This Way Comes”. I believe that it was put out by Disney in the 80’s, and it scared the (bleep) out of me.

  21. Sherry says:

    Cynthia – I would love to win these books! I loved Deadly Fear and it was one of the scariest books I’ve read ever. Definitely the scariest this year. The Saw Movies are some of the scariest movies ever made. They are so scary.

  22. Stephanie M says:

    The scariest movie was The Ring. Thanks for the giveaway.

  23. Casey says:

    The scariest movie I have ever watched was The Shining. Omg. I can’t watch any Jack Nicholson movie now without getting freaked out!

  24. OMG! This is the wickedest giveaway EVER! *keeping my fingers and toes crossed for this* (grin)

    Scariest book for me…it’s a toss up between Without Mercy by Lisa Jackson and Killer Takes All by Erica Spindler


  25. Pam P says:

    I agree, the Shining was one scary movie. Another that was freakily scary for me was Helter, Skelter based on Charles Manson and his followers, because it’s a true story. The ways they so sneakily crept into homes with people unware. Right after I read it for awhile, I’d jump at those sudden house noises, or when I’d find something in my house out of place (something moved by a family member when visiting I didn’t expect).

  26. sue brandes says:

    The Shining really gets me everytime. And I only like the Jack Nickelson one. He did evil well. The Fourth Kind really creeps me out too. The Exorcist when that little girl gets that deep voice and her head goes. OMG!!

  27. Karin says:

    Once upon a time, when I was MUCH younger, I stayed up late watching a movie about Custer and Little Big Horn. When I went to bed that night, I turned on the lights as I went from room to room rather than turn off lights. It was so realistic that I was sure there was an Indian sitting out there waiting to take my hair! The sound of the arrow leaving the bow is still with me!

  28. Scariest movie — the very first Jason Movie — I still have nightmares about that ending. My dad still remembers the scream.

  29. Leagh Christensen says:

    OMG…are you serious??? I love this series and am crossing my fingers!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The scariest movie for me was…ok don’t laugh…”The Grudge” I for some reason can’t even think about that movie w/o getting the creeps!!!

  30. Jeanette Juan says:

    Scariest movie was IT

  31. emmad says:

    Scariest book was IT. Shudders I was only about 16 had nightmares for a while.

    Um movie I can’t remember what it was called but again was only 15 and my friend and I watched this movie after watching Cujo. Was about Rottweillers that had been altered and got loose. After scary ourselves silly we would out to the garage to fetch something for my friends father. Well her brother growled like a dog and we were inside so fast our feet never touched the ground.

  32. Cynthia Andersen says:

    Well, at the time, it wasn’t such a scary movie, but I was alone with my partner on the ambulance watching Carrie. When it was over, I went to brush my teeth and I thought he’d gone outside. He hadn’t. And the sight of him startled me so much, I, uh, fainted.

  33. Terri says:

    Hi Cyntha,

    Wow what gorgeous covers and I would love to win both of them! Love this series!

    When I was younger one of the scariest movies I watched was “It” by Stephen King. I didn’t like clowns before watching this movie but after it made me not like them even more!

  34. Even though I think I don’t like watching scary movies, I have still somehow seen quite a few (usually at home when I’m alone). I think Stephen King’s “It” is probably the one that has stuck with me the most – still can’t really look at a shower drain or storm drain without thinking of that movie.
