A note from Cynthia

Posted in Romance on March 13th, 2024 by Cynthia Eden

I just posted this note on FB, but I thought it was important so I wanted to repost it here, too.

On this #WriterWednesday, I wanted to take a moment and talk to you about a topic that seems to be all over the place these days. AI. Or, more specifically, AI when it comes to the writing world.

I just want to be clear with my readers–I have not nor will I ever use AI to write my books. I also don’t use ghostwriters and will not use them for my stories.

Love my books or hate them–it’s all me. (And, of course, my fondest wish would be for everyone to love my books, but I know that just won’t happen. Not every book works for every reader, and that is ok. We are all different people!)

The words are mine. Created with blood, sweat, chocolate, and Red Bull. I put out a lot of books each year (I usually aim for at least 7 new titles), and I am able to write that many novels because I am pretty much always writing. If I’m not working on a story, I feel lost. Like I *should* be writing. Writing has always been my dream, and I feel blessed to have the opportunity to bring stories to you.

I’ve been in the writing business for a very long time. I sold my first book to Kensington back in 2005, and I have not stopped writing since then.

So, this is my promise to you. A real person is writing these books. It’s me. It will continue to be me.

Thank you for reading this ramble. ๐Ÿ˜‰ And thank you for reading my books.

LOCKED IN ICE – Coming Soon!

Posted in Romance, Latest News on March 3rd, 2024 by Cynthia Eden

What is next???

ICE COLD KISS *just* released…and in a few short weeks (March 28th), I’ll have another brand new romantic suspense for you–LOCKED IN ICE!

๐“๐ก๐ž ๐ฐ๐จ๐ซ๐ฅ๐ ๐œ๐š๐ฅ๐ฅ๐ž๐ ๐ก๐ข๐ฆ ๐š ๐ฆ๐จ๐ง๐ฌ๐ญ๐ž๐ซ, ๐ฌ๐จ ๐ก๐ž ๐›๐ž๐œ๐š๐ฆ๐ž ๐จ๐ง๐žโ€ฆ

Guilty. Innocent? Definitely dangerous. The media chases Lane Lawson wherever he goes. Once upon a time, heโ€™d been locked away because the Feds believed he was a serial killer. Every single day that heโ€™d been in that hell, heโ€™d had to fight for survival. Now heโ€™s out, free, seemingly clear, but suspicion still dodges his steps, and heโ€™ll never be the man he was before a nightmare ended the life he knew.

๐ˆ๐ญโ€™๐ฌ ๐ก๐ข๐ฌ ๐ญ๐ฎ๐ซ๐ง ๐ญ๐จ ๐›๐ž ๐ญ๐ก๐ž ๐ฉ๐ซ๐ž๐๐š๐ญ๐จ๐ซ.

So he hunts. Adrenaline and rage fuel him, and he hunts the killers who think theyโ€™ve gotten away with their crimes. He paid for someone elseโ€™s sins before, and heโ€™s determined that the guilty will be the ones to suffer. Heโ€™s joined up with the Ice Breakers, a team of cold case solversโ€”a team that helped get him out of his hellโ€”and he will not stop until the scales of justice have been balanced.

๐€๐ง๐ ๐ข๐ง ๐ญ๐ก๐ข๐ฌ ๐ง๐ž๐ฐ ๐ฅ๐ข๐Ÿ๐ž, ๐ก๐ž ๐ก๐š๐ฌ ๐š๐ง ๐ฎ๐ง๐ฅ๐ข๐ค๐ž๐ฅ๐ฒ ๐ง๐ž๐ฐ ๐ฉ๐š๐ซ๐ญ๐ง๐ž๐ซ.

PI Ophelia Raine is Laneโ€™s opposite in every way. Fiery when heโ€™s ice cold. Smiling when heโ€™s ready to rip the world apart. Sheโ€™s supposed to balance him, to help train him as an Ice Breakerโ€ฆand, most importantly, he knows that Ophelia is supposed to keep him in check. Donโ€™t let him go off the deep end. An order heโ€™d heard her receive.

But the problem is that the more heโ€™s around the gorgeous and tenacious Ophelia, the more Laneโ€™s control begins to fracture. Because it has been far too long since heโ€™s taken somethingโ€”someoneโ€”for himself. And he very, very much wants Ophelia. A dark and desperate desire that begins to consume him.

๐Ž๐ฉ๐ก๐ž๐ฅ๐ข๐š ๐ก๐š๐ฌ ๐ก๐ž๐ซ ๐จ๐ฐ๐ง ๐๐š๐ซ๐ค๐ง๐ž๐ฌ๐ฌ ๐ก๐ข๐๐๐ž๐ง ๐ข๐ง๐ฌ๐ข๐๐ž.

The more heโ€™s around her, the more Lane realizes that Opheliaโ€™s bright and beautiful veneer is just a facade. Sheโ€™s hiding secrets. Secrets that sheโ€™s keeping from him and all of the Ice Breakers. And when Opheliaโ€™s bloody and violent past comes back to haunt herโ€ฆ

She will need a monster to keep her safe.

Quick note: If you read BURIED UNDER ICE, then Lane will seem familiar to you. ๐Ÿ˜‰ That’s because he’s Lark’s twin brother. I thought he needed a book of his own!

ICE COLD KISS – Releasing 2/27!

Posted in Romance, Latest News on February 26th, 2024 by Cynthia Eden

Tomorrow is the day!! ICE COLD KISS releases in print and ebook on 2/27/24.

He’s the son of a serial killer. He’s also her new bodyguard…

Want an early look at just *who* Midas is??? Well…

Hi. Iโ€™m Midas Monroe, the son of a serial killer. My dear old dad is currently rotting away in a maximum security facility. Who did he kill? Multiple women.  He broke their necks.  Oh, and for extra fun, he would stab them in the heart after he broke their necks. See, a broken neck doesnโ€™t always kill the victim. Guess my dad learned that lesson early on.  So he evolved as twisted killers do.

And he also tried to frame me for his crimes.

No big deal.

***

Ahem. Let me just tell you…it is a very big deal. Midas is a character with a twisted and dark past. Midas has walked through hell and lived to tell the story. His story. And that story will be available on 2/27/24.

TOUCHED BY ICE – .99 SALE!

Posted in Romance, Latest News on February 20th, 2024 by Cynthia Eden

Book news! For a limited time, you can snag the TOUCHED BY ICE ebook for just .99!

Cold case. Hot romance.

Aiden Warner has power, fame, and money. What he doesnโ€™t have? Answers. His twin brother vanished when Aiden was a teen, and the mystery has haunted Aiden for years. He will do anything, pay any price, to learn the truth. Luckily for Aiden, there is one woman out there who can help him solve the mystery from his past.

She deals with the dead.

Dr. Antonia โ€œTonyโ€ Rossi has a reputationโ€”she finds the dead. Sheโ€™s an expert when it comes to discovering remains and identifying the deceased. Someone has to give justice for the missing, and sheโ€™s made it her lifeโ€™s work to be the voice for those who canโ€™t speak. Tonyโ€™s a loner by nature, uncomfortable with attention, and definitely not a woman who seeks the spotlight.

He thinks he can buy her. Newsflash, he canโ€™t.

Aiden is used to getting what he wants, and what he wants now? Antonia. He figures he can pay her to do the job, and the case will be closed butโ€ฆheโ€™s wrong. About her. About himself. From the minute he meets her, Aiden is obsessed. He expected Antonia to be brilliant, but he doesnโ€™t expect the hot surge of desire he feels for her.

Someone will kill to keep the past buried.

But now Aidenโ€™s attention has a killer focused on Antonia, too. Someone who will not allow her to uncover any of his dark secrets. And if he has to, he will bury Antonia so deeply that no one will ever find her again. 

Itโ€™s not the past that can destroy you. Itโ€™s the present.

When Antonia is threatened, Aiden realizes that nothing matters but protecting her. For years, his heart has been locked away, but sheโ€™s brought him to life again. He will not lose her. Will he fight for her? With everything he has. Would he kill to protect her? In a heartbeat.

Together, Aiden and Antonia will hunt for the murderer who has been hiding and waiting to strike again. The dead are going to speak, and Antonia will make sure she gives them justice.
