You want a dark and exciting romantic suspense read, then Cynthia Eden is the go-to author. And it’s just not plain horrific evil; her villains are super smart, twisted and pros at mind games, making her books one of the best thrillers to read.

Latest in her Killer Instinct Series, “Before The Dawn”, brings Tucker Frost to his one and only woman he had ever loved and lost, Dawn Alexander. Surviving victim of the evil Frost sibling, Dawn had endured unimaginable torture by Jason Frost, before she can escape him when Tucker kills his brother to save his love. Ten years later and with a serial killer on the loose, imitating Jason Frost, Dawn needs some immense courage and strength to face the threat to her life.

Betrayal separated Tucker and Dawn, and now death brings them together and a serial killer is playing hide and seek as he freezes his victims alive. Emotions run high, lust permeates deep and the love and trust between Tucker and Dawn is the saving grace and may very well protect them from death.

I love when thrillers are just not gory and violent, but have a scintillating mind game in play. Cynthia Eden is exemplary in that field and I just love her characters. She gives equal depth and layers to the good as well as the bad, to make her stories so very brilliant. The suspense keeps us captivated, the adrenaline is high to keep us on the edge of the seats and Tucker and Dawn are partner to cheat death to have a future.

“Before The Dawn” should be read to enjoy the brilliance of the plot, the characters that will become one of our favorites and the narration that is tight and it is always a pleasure to have Samantha Beck visit.

Her latest Killer Instinct series starts off with the prequel “The Gathering Dusk” and this should be read before continuing with “After The Dark”, to follow Samantha Dark and Blake Gamble, as they take on evil in plain sight and very closely attached to Samantha Dark.

“After The Dark” starts off with Blake reuniting with Samantha who was and is once touted as one of the best profilers. Yet her FBI career goes down south when her ex-lover and best friend turns out to be the killer. A killer she may have let go. But now someone is hunting Samantha in her small quite town and Blake wants Samantha to help catch the killer and also protect her at the same time.

Seems like forever I read Cynthia Eden, but it’s been only a few weeks ago I read her Purgatory Series, and now the latest in her “Dark Obsession” Series leaves me in the wake of a passion that refuses to die and a past that threatens to defy the very existence of Ethan Barclay and Carly Shay.

BewareOfMe-CynthiaEdenCarly Shay has been through a horrific trauma and has come out on the other side, but lost the love of her life Ethan Barclay to evils of the world. Yet when he comes face to face with her, there is no denying the passion that exists between them or the revenge of a past that haunts them to death. Ethan will lay his life down for Carly and Carly will go through hell to save Ethan from destroying himself. Two lives tied by death and an obsessed killer wanting blood to avenge his demons – adrenaline pumping and spine chilling!

Cynthia Eden leaves no room to take a breath as she continues the saga of the Dark Obsession series. Bringing back the kick-ass characters from her past stories to laying the foundation for another kick-ass story, only adds more sizzle and fire to an already intoxicating story of lust and revenge.

The fourth book in “The Purgatory Series”, Cynthia Eden finally gives us Eric Pate, the devil to reckon. Being the Director of the special FBI Para Unit is no mean task nor is it a bed of roses. Comprising some of the most powerful paranormal with abnormal powers, the Para Unit’s job is to keep the innocent safe and the evil paranormal behind bars in the Purgatory.

Being the Director leaves no room for Eric Pate to neither make mistakes nor lose control of himself. Always on the hunt to contain evil, he would go to any lengths to keep his family safe and his secret buried forever. But then fate brings him face to face with Ella Lancaster, his prisoner, his answer to questions, his downfall and his one and only chance to put closure to a past that haunts him.

DealWithTheDevil-Purgatory4-June 2015

Desperate to break the chains of imprisonment, Ella Lancaster makes a deal with the devil himself to help him in his mission, and at the same time keep her powers a secret. Tortured and starved to harness her powers to keep evil alive, she has a score to settle and a traumatic past to forget. Yet Eric brings out the best in her with a hope for being loved for who she is and protected for life.

As Eric and Ella give into their burning desire, Ella’s past comes striking Eric to the ground and awaking the beast sleeping inside. With powerful magic at play, and Eric in the grips of death, Ella is the only one who is standing between life and death. And will Ella’s gamble of life to save Eric; can she survive to live the future with her mate?

Cynthia Eden needs no introduction and her paranormal stories are just brilliant and fascinating to read. “Deal With The Devil” is a fine art of Eric and Ella. I’ve always admired Eric, his secrets and his control of everything and Cynthia does a stupendous job with his character and his story.

Words can’t do justice to the story and the many questions that rise about humans and paranormal co-existing in the world. Shouldn’t live and let live be the norm of life? At least that’s what Ella hopes for…and so do I.

Cynthia Eden’s third installment in the Dark Obsession Series, “Need Me” is another adrenaline pumping ride of suspense and passion as death stalks the shadows as love and trust get caught in the crossfire of a killer wanting to hide secrets.

Julianna Smith is accused of murdering her abusive husband, a murder that she has no recollection of. With a trial looming in the horizon and all evidence pointing to her as the killer, Julianna is desperate for someone to believe in her and gets a friend and an attorney in the kick-ass attorney Sophie. With a feeling of being watched all the time and a fear for her life, Julianna ends up in the offices of VJS Protection seeking their services to protect her life.

NeedMe-CynthiaEden

Devlin Shade has been drawn to Julianna since the first time he lays eyes on her, and he knows getting involved with an alleged murderer is not in his agenda. Walking a thin line between truth and lies, Devlin can’t keep his lust and passion for Julianna on a reign and all that matters to him is to keep her safe, at any cost, even if he has to enter her dangerous world where secrets are worth taking lives.

As the line between right and wrong get blurred with love and need, Julianna and Devlin, test the power of their intense attraction. As they erase the boundaries between them, they set fire between the sheets, igniting a rage in the killer stalking Julianna. As secrets tear open and the killer gets closer to his goal, Julianna and Devlin need to trust each other with their lives to stay alive.

“Need Me” is a super charged passionate romantic suspense and Cynthia Eden keeps us on the edge of our seats with its many twists. Eden is a prowess at writing cutting edge thrillers with characters on the edge of obsession good or bad and an insane measure of love and lust that sees no boundaries.

Reading it stand-alone is great, but reading the first two in the series “Watch Me” (Book 1) and “Want Me” (Book 2)…is pure pleasure of contentment!
