Just two weeks until the 12/28/21 release of PRETEND YOU WANT ME!

So I think that means it is teaser time!


“Don’t worry.” Gideon stalked toward her. “I know the drill.” Closer. Closer. His scent—crisp, masculine, and oddly compelling—wrapped around her. “Not my first time at bat.”

Fabulous to know

He stopped right in front of her. His green gaze seemed to go burn. “I’ve done this gig before.”

Good for him. Why was it so hot in there? 

“I play your boyfriend. I stare at you like you’re the only person in the world.”

Um, his stare was pretty intense.

“I get pissy as hell when other men get close because I’m possessive, and I want everyone to know you’re mine.”


“I stay close to you because I can’t stand the idea of you being separated from me.”

His voice had gone all growly and…hot.  And she had to admit… “Fine,” Aspen snapped. “You can act like you want me. Got it.” Someone give this man a cookie.

His long lashes—why were his lashes so thick, damn him—lowered. “Right. I can act like I want you.” He backed up a step.

Surprise! I have brand new holiday romance for you! IT’S A WONDERFUL WEREWOLF is available now!

Get festive with a wolfishly fun holiday romance from New York Times and USA Today best-selling author Cynthia Eden…

Oliver Abbott never intended to be a werewolf. Howling at the moon, sprouting fur, shifting into a beast…not exactly the life plan that the former Navy SEAL had anticipated. But an attack on a snow-filled night changes everything. Suddenly, Oliver has a new reality, and he has to leave the only woman he’s ever loved, Gia Donato, in order to protect her from his wolfish side. Yeah, being a werewolf bites. Big time. Especially when you have the biggest, sharpest teeth in town.

But Christmas is a magical time…

On Christmas Eve, an angelical “intern” offers to grant Oliver one wish. Oliver can have anything he wants. His wish? He wishes that he’d never become a werewolf. Only that wish has unexpected consequences…Gia doesn’t remember him, danger is stalking her, and, ho-ho-horror of horrors, Oliver is now a mild-mannered tax attorney. Nope, not happening. Especially the part where Gia is in danger. Oliver wants a do-over on the wish. STAT.

He will embrace his inner beast.

Oliver is an alpha werewolf for a reason. He wants his old, howl-at-the-moon life back, and he’s going to take it—fangs, claws, fur, and everything else. With the help of his angel intern, Oliver’s beast returns, and the hunt is on. Oliver is ready to fight for his second chance with Gia, and he will be at her side when danger comes to her door. Because there is no way that he will stand aside and let anyone hurt her. No way, no day. First, though, he has to convince the gorgeous Gia that she should give their love a second chance…

But it’s Christmas, right? And anything can happen during the holiday season…even a miracle for a werewolf.

Author’s note: Even werewolves can use a little Christmas magic. Deck the halls with some furry fun, dangerous dilemmas, and an uber hot hero who is prepared to grovel with hot chocolate for the woman who owns his heart. Someone is stalking her? Danger is at her door? Oliver will get his beast on in an instant in order to protect Gia. IT’S A WONDERUL WEREWOLF is a fun and festive novella (approximately 23,000 words) with an absolutely guaranteed happy ending.


IT’S A WONDERUL WEREWOLF is available at Amazon, Kobo, Nook, and Google Play. It is in the process of loading at Apple Books, and a print version of the story should be available in 2-3 days.

PRETEND YOU WANT ME – Read the First Chapter

Posted in Romance, Latest News on December 9th, 2021 by Cynthia Eden

Are you ready to see how Gideon and Aspen meet? PRETEND YOU WANT ME releases on 12/28/21, but you can read the first chapter right now!

She fixes problems.

There is no problem that Aspen Gray can’t handle. No case that is too hard. No challenge too great. She’s a rising star criminal defense attorney, and she intends to have the world at her feet…until a ghost from her past comes back to wreck her carefully designed plans. A ghost who should have been in the ground. And when a dead man comes stalking you, what’s a woman to do?

Let things get Wilde.

As soon as she sets foot in the elite protection and security firm known as Wilde, Aspen knows that she must tread carefully. Her life is on the line, and everything that she has worked so hard to achieve can be destroyed…unless one very talented and dangerous Wilde agent can help her out.  She needs a man with exceedingly deadly skills—and she needs him now.

He can practically see the secrets dripping from her…

It should have been a standard undercover operation.  Gideon Ranier knew the drill. He was supposed to play the role of his new client’s boyfriend so that he could slip into her world, keep her safe, and unmask the jerk screwing around with her.  Standard work. No big deal. Former Delta Force, he could do that type of job in his sleep. Except…he doesn’t count on actually falling for his client.  But he does. Hard, fast, and deep, and soon…there is nothing that he won’t do for her.

It’s personal.

Lines are crossed. Desire grows too strong. Their need won’t be denied. But the attacks on Aspen are mounting.  As an obsessed killer plays a deadly game, Gideon will have no choice but to fight harder and dirtier than he’s ever fought in his life in order to protect Aspen from a stalker hellbent on vengeance.

Author’s Note:  He’s dangerous. She’s devious. They shouldn’t want each other so badly, but they do.  Close proximity, a deadly threat…adrenaline is pumping and the desire between Aspen and Gideon will not be controlled. He’ll walk through hell to keep her safe…and, yes, he’s pretty much gonna have to do just that. Sexy times, dangerous deeds, and a happy ending are guaranteed in this stand-alone read.  Be on the lookout for secrets, because there sure are plenty of those coming your way!

WRAPPED UP IN YOU – Available now!

Posted in Romance, Latest News on December 6th, 2021 by Cynthia Eden

In case you’re in the mood to get holly jolly, I wanted to tell you about a special anthology that I’ve just released.

I took four of my previously published Christmas romances…and I’ve bundled them up in one steamy anthology. WRAPPED UP IN YOU is available at all major ebook publishers, and it contains the following stories:


On the run from her dangerous ex, Haley Quick escapes to the tiny town of Point Hope, Alabama—a place gone crazy for the holidays. This grinch feels like she doesn’t belong, but then Haley meets sexy sheriff Spencer Lane. Spencer is determined both to protect Haley and to show her that the holidays can be magical for her again…


Ben Prescott hates Christmas—he’s a vampire, and to him, there’s certainly nothing jolly about the holiday season. But three visitors are coming Ben’s way…A demon who will force Ben to face his past, a ghost who will show Ben the present he could have, and a shifter who will reveal the darkness that waits in Ben’s future. Ben’s redemption rests in the hands of the one woman he loved and lost—Simone Laurent. If Ben is going to have a chance at being more than just the beast in the darkness, he has to prove himself to the lovely Simone.


Christie Tate is so over being good. This year, she’ll be topping the naughty list, thank you very much. And step one in her grand scheme? It’s seducing the man she’s always wanted…sexy police detective Jonas Kirk. For years, she’s wanted Jonas, but he’s her brother’s best friend, and she thought he was off-limits. Will he help her to get her naughty Christmas wish?


Everyone in town thinks that Jemma White is as sweet as the delicious treats she makes at her chocolate shop—but they’re wrong. Jemma is ready to let her wild side out, and she’s just found the perfect man to make all of her fantasies come true. Grayson Cole is a too-sexy-to-be-true stranger who has escaped to Holly for the holidays. He is her perfect temptation, and Jemma can’t wait to steam up the cold winter nights with him. But when danger from Grayson’s past follows him to town, she realizes that the man she is falling for has been keeping some very dark secrets…secrets that may just get them both killed.

Feeling stressed? Don’t worry. I’ve got you covered this holiday season. 😉 From now until January 2nd, my contemporary romance, PROTECING PIPER, is FREE at all major ebook retailers.

So when you need a break from decorating that tree…
When you’ve been cooking way too long and just want to chill…
Or when you absolutely cannot wrap another present…

Just curl up with PROTECTING PIPER.

She was off-limits.

Eric Wilde has always known that Piper Lane isn’t for him. She is his younger brother’s best friend…and probably more. But that hasn’t stopped Eric from wanting her, from longing for the one woman that he can’t have. Sure, he’s rich, successful—he’s built a security empire, and he’s got the world at his feet. Only he doesn’t have her.

He is the one man she needs the most.

Free-spirited Piper Lane has always considered Eric to be the enemy. He’s seemed to resent her, and the guy just flat-out makes her nervous. Every time she’s around him, she winds up doing something horribly embarrassing. But, this time…everything has changed. This time, he’s the one man she needs the most.

Something is stalking Piper.

A stranger has broken into Piper’s home twice, and she feels like someone is following her. Watching her every move. She needs a professional to help her—so enter Eric Wilde. He promises her protection, he promises to put his best investigators on her case, and he even moves her into his house. Suddenly, the guy who has always been the villain in her life…he’s now playing the role of hero.

Everything will change as the danger mounts.

And maybe Eric isn’t so bad, after all. The more time that Piper spends with him, the more she realizes that her feelings for Eric are far more complicated that she ever imagined. Desire explodes between them even as the danger deepens around her. Someone in the dark is targeting Piper, and he is determined that if he can’t possess her…then he will destroy her.
