twisted-quote-2ADDICTED TO HEROES

Hi, everyone! It is such a pleasure to be at My Book Addiction and More. (Thanks for having me!) Today, I thought I’d talk about one of my big addictions…
I love romance heroes. They’re strong. They’re fierce. They will do anything in order to protect the women that they love. In a word, they’re awesome.
Crafting heroes is so much fun for me. Sometimes, I have dark and dangerous heroes—heroes who’ve got pasts that have left them scarred. Sometimes, I write stories about tough, alpha males. Guys with military backgrounds who seem to live for the high of adrenaline.
In my latest book, TWISTED, my hero Dean Bannon is an ex-FBI agent. He’s a by-the-book guy, but that’s just what you see on the surface. Once the heroine begins to break his control, she sees the real man inside.
A man who is dark.
A man who is dangerous.
A man who will do anything to get what he wants.
And, above all, what he wants…is her.
He’s not the “good” guy hero; instead, he’s a man with secrets. And secrets, oh, but I think they can be ever so much fun.

Do you have a favorite hero type? And just why do you enjoy him? Please share your responses with me! 😉

TWISTED – Available 4/28/15


Lost # 2
By: Cynthia Eden
Releasing April 28th, 2015


In the second seductive Lost novel from New York Times bestselling author Cynthia Eden, an obsessed Last Option Search Team agent goes looking for trouble—and finds her in the Big Easy.

Dean Bannon comes to New Orleans for one reason only: to track down a missing sixteen-year-old girl. That’s before he meets the drop-dead gorgeous con artist who makes him want to lose his legendary control.

With her past, Emma Castille doesn’t claim to be psychic. She just notices things other people don’t. Like the fear in a runaway’s eyes-or the pain in an ex-FBI agent’s heart. Her chemistry with Dean is blistering, but Emma follows her passion . . . not someone else’s orders.

Then a madman breaks into Emma’s home and leaves a twisted message: “You’re next.” Now Dean refuses to let her out of his sight until he pries every last secret from her full, sexy lips. And suddenly Emma’s aching to give him everything he wants.

“You’re not psychic.”
Were they back to that?
She put her hands in her lap. Emma didn’t believe in making nervous gestures. She didn’t believe in giving away anything at all with her body language.
“What you are …” Ah, now he did smile. Her father would have called it a shit-eating grin. The more PC term was probably a Cheshire cat smile. Whatever the name, that smile annoyed her. “What you are, Ms. Castille … is a criminal. A fraud.”
Maybe she should grab her chest and dramatically gasp. She didn’t. “Wonderful for you,” Emma said. “You pulled up a background report one me.” She let her eyes widen a bit. “It’s amazing just what one can find if a person knows how to use a search engine.”
A furrow appeared between his eyes.
“How about I say what … you are?” Emma asked him. “A washed-up FBI agent who snapped on the job. You held your control tight every single day, but the bad guys—they just didn’t stop, did they? You hunted them, you stopped them, and more appeared. While you were fighting the system, they kept coming, and the bodies kept piling up onyour watch.”
He shot right back to his feet. The folding chair slammed down behind him.
“You and your father bilked desperate people,” he accused. “You told them you were psychic, that you could help find their missing children. And you—”
“We found them.” Two girls who’d vanished. They’d found them. “We just didn’t get to them in time.” And she would not go back to that place.
She motioned toward Manuel. He knew the signal meant he could take over her booth. There was no way, no way,that she was going to stay there with that prick while he slammed the most painful moments from her past in Emma’s face.
Manuel, pale, tattooed, with piercings in his lips and eyebrows, quickly claimed her spot.
Emma jumped to her feet. Muttered her thanks, and fled right past the guy she was starting to think of as Agent Jackass.
She pushed through the crowd. Wasn’t there always a crowd in Jackson Square? And that was why she loved the place. It was so easy to vanish in a crowd. To be anyone.
The crowd closed around her.
To be no one at all.
She hurried around the back of the cathedral. She knew the streets so well. Her home was close by. Emma would get inside and forget Agent Jackass.
I’m being followed.
Emma stilled at the intersection. A horse-drawn carriage rolled by her. Voices called out.
And he touched her.
Emma didn’t flinch. Didn’t scream. She looked down at the hand on her shoulder. “When a woman runs away from you, that means you need to stay the hell away from her.”
His hold tightened on her. “You and I aren’t done.”
She looked up at his face

TWISTED by Cynthia Eden is an example of an amazing Romantic Suspense series. #2 in the “Lost” series, but can be read as a stand lone. See, “Broken”.

Fast paced, action filled, heart pumping tale of danger,secrets, passion and romance. Smart, sexy, gut-wrenching, powerful and absolutely filled with heart-wrenching suspense. A powerful tale to be sure. I loved the way the Emma and Dean interacted, their passion for life, and for each other. Wait, while, passion is blooming, someone from Emma’s past knows her secrets is is out to make her “next”. Emma may be trouble, but Dean, intends to keep her safe. Well written with emotional characters and an intriguing storyline.

Another hit for Ms. Eden, who is an intense, compelling, complex author who writes from the heart, with realistic characters and a very intense storyline. Powerful and awe-consuming! A keeper and a must read for any fans of Romantic Suspense, Suspense, Mystery, and just plain looking for an awesome read!

Leverage (The Brannock Siblings #1)


Leverage Cover


Adventure. That’s all Aislinn ‘Ash’ Brannock wanted in her life. Her dad and two brothers – all cops – got to see it all, but their over-protectiveness made her feel like she had been locked away in a tower with three fire breathing dragons watching her every move. Yes, it was that bad. The only silver lining? Lucas Shade. Her brothers’ best friend growing up, and apparently the only man she will ever love because let’s face it, none of the others even come close. After an unfortunate mistake lands her back in her father’s home, her world is turned upside down and Lucas is there in a tightly wrapped package of serious with a big red bow on top. Life just got interesting, but it comes with a price, one she never wanted to pay.

Detective Lucas Shade never had a real family, but the Brannocks took him in as one of their own and he never took it for granted. Ash was a big reason for why he stuck around, but in order to save himself the beating of a lifetime from her two older brothers, he kept his feelings for her hidden. When the case he has been working on for months takes a turn, Ash could become the leverage the bad guys have been waiting for, but keeping her invisible may destroy everything Lucas has worked so hard for. Good thing Ash is the only person he would give up everything to protect.

Conned (The Brannock Siblings #2)


Conned Cover


Conall Brannock takes his job seriously. He doesn’t get attached, he doesn’t ask questions, and he protects his family at all costs. Nothing will change that. Not even the sweet, green eyed witness that just burst into his life and shifted his world. He has one job to do; protect Emily until she can testify. He can’t let his interest in her get in the way, but the more he finds out about her, the more he can’t help but wonder how the beautiful broken girl got into this mess in the first place. And the longer he takes to learn the truth, the deeper he falls for her.

Emily Dawson has a job to do. Stay off the grid, testify, and hopefully get her brother back. He’s all she has left of the family she struggled so hard to hold together and she would do anything to keep him safe. Even if it means she has put herself in harm’s way or that she has conned everyone into believing she saw something she didn’t. She knows where her loyalties lie, but her stoic yet gentle protector and his crazy family makes her question everything she once knew.

Loyalty can be one sided.

Family isn’t always blood.

And honesty can destroy everything she has come to love.

Ricochet (Rise & Fall #1)


Ricochet Cover



It’s the last thing I remembered.

I was afraid.

Afraid to fight, afraid to run… afraid to breathe.

Then, everything had gone dark. As if life was finally hearing my pleas, my cries to end the torment. To end the fear.

But even in the dark, I still felt it.

I always felt it.

My life had been a ricochet of one event leading to the next. Bouncing back and forth from good to bad. Happiness to despair. Hope to fear.

My name is Arianna West. I’m stronger now. Steady. Alive.

I can find a way to survive on my own. I can see what is coming for me. I can channel my fear into strength.

Except… I didn’t see Jack.

And Jack changed everything.

About The Author

I live in Morgan Utah with my husband, daughter, and dog, Kolo. I write as often as my active daughter will let me and my husband has the patience of a saint. I find inspiration from dreams, people I meet, and life experiences. When I write, I usually end up drinking one too many cans of Peace Tea, eating three too many Fruit by the Foot fruit snacks, and accidently kicking my pup and best buddy, Kolo, too many times since he loves to sleep under my desk at my feet.
I started writing as a teen, but my fear of the unknown won out every time and I threw everything out. After becoming a mother and deciding to stay at home to raise my beautiful little girl, I tried again when I couldn’t stop thinking of ideas. I loved every minute, every hour of sleep lost, and every character that came to life in my mind.
It’s strange, but my favorite moments are when I have writer’s block because I can turn to my husband and find inspiration through him by just doing what we do best together. Talking, laughing, and just being in love. He doesn’t like to read, but he never stops encouraging me to keep going.
Writing has become an important part of my life and every book has a special place in my heart.

My Thoughts:

The Rebel's Redemption (Wou...

#2 in the “Wounded Hearts” series, but can be read as a stand alone.
A fast paced tale of second chances, forgiveness, human trafficking, the Drug Cartel, small town of Tidal Falls, Washington. Jared Martin, a Navy SEAL has a tortured soul, past regrets,secrets and an enemy out for revenge. Anna Campbell owns a small business in Tidal Falls, has a past with Jared, a eight year old child and his dating the sheriff.
All hell breaks loose when Jared returns to Tidal Falls, in more ways than one.
Fast paced Romantic Suspense/Mystery. Filled with emotional turmoil, emotional baggage, passion and romance. The characters have a complexity rarely found in a story, each telling the story from their point of view. This is a complex, compelling, and emotional story with a topic ripped out of today’s headlines, revenge, forgiveness, human trafficking, narcotics, mixed with a bit of mystery, suspense and romance. This story is NOT just another Romantic Suspense, it is so much more. This was my first time reading this author and I thoroughly enjoyed “The Rebel’s Redemption”. I look forward to the next installment of “Wounded Hearts”. Enjoyable and a satisfying read!
