𝐏𝐥𝐞𝐚𝐬𝐞, 𝐩𝐥𝐞𝐚𝐬𝐞 𝐥𝐞𝐭 𝐦𝐞 𝐬𝐚𝐲…𝐓𝐇𝐀𝐍𝐊 𝐘𝐎𝐔!!!

Thank you so much for the support and kind words and awesome notes that you have been sending to me about THE BODYGUARD NEXT DOOR. ❤️ I am thrilled that you are enjoying this tale. I wanted to write something fun and upbeat…yet still with a little danger (I can’t help it–danger always slips into my books!!), and I am so grateful to you for giving this story a chance!!!

I can’t believe that THE BODYGUARD NEXT DOOR is book number 15 in the Wilde Ways series. Fifteen!! 😮 When I wrote the first Wilde Ways book (PROTECTING PIPER), I had no idea that I would be opening the door to what would become my longest running series! How did that happen?? Well, it happened because of you…because you asked for more stories. Because you supported the books. THANK YOU!!

All of the novels in the Wilde Ways series are stand-alones. They all have happy endings. And I’ve tried hard to make sure that they balance romance, suspense, and humor. Life has been hard for everyone over the last few years, and my hope with the books is that they will provide a way for us to all escape a bit.

I am beyond grateful that you have allowed me to keep writing these stories. My readers mean the world to me, and please know how much I appreciate you all!!! And…yes, if you’ve read the end of THE BODYGUARD NEXT DOOR, then you already know that another Wilde book is coming soon…But for those who haven’t read it yet, I won’t post any spoilers. Not yet, anyway! Stay tuned!!!!

THE BODYGUARD NEXT DOOR is available now!

Posted in Romance, Latest News on May 10th, 2022 by Cynthia Eden

I’ve got a brand new romance available today–THE BODYGUARD NEXT DOOR is here!

He’s danger and a wicked, hot grin…

Iris Stuart may have a small crush on her neighbor. After all, Pierce Jennings is gorgeous, muscled, and he has a laugh that makes her toes curl. But she is not going down that particular path of temptation with the former Army Ranger and current Wilde agent. Nope. Not happening. They’ll stay in the friend zone because it’s safer that way. Safer for her—and for him. Even if looking into his baby blues makes her heart race.

She’s sunshine, secrets, and a bit of sin…

Pierce’s new neighbor wears paint-splattered jeans, she smells like sin, and he wants to put his hands all over her gorgeous body. Too bad she’s friend-zoned him. Too bad she’s starring in most of his fantasies. Too bad he can’t get her out of his head.

But when danger comes knocking, he’s just the man she needs.

So Iris may have a slightly infamous past—and a family who more than dabs in art forgeries. Iris inherited some of their not-so-slightly shady skills, and unfortunately, now some dangerous people want to use her. When the bad guys don’t take no for an answer and they try to abduct her, it’s her sexy bodyguard next door who comes to her rescue.

Suddenly, she’s got his protection.

The bad guys want her art skills, the Feds in stiff suits want her to work a sting, and Pierce? He just wants her to be his.  And what Pierce wants, he will get. Even if he has to take down an undercover art ring and take on the Feds, he will stay by Iris’s side. He’s not just going to be her bodyguard. Before they are done, he plans to be one hell of a lot more to her…

Author’s Note: Does it get better than having a seriously buff, ready-to-handle-any-threat bodyguard…right next door? For Iris Stuart, this turn of events is probably the best thing that has ever happened to her. But falling for sexy Pierce wasn’t supposed to happen. She’s the bad girl. He’s the hero. Except…maybe a bad girl can win the heart of the hero, provided, of course, that they can survive the danger heading their way. It’s time for another WILDE ride. What can you expect? Hot times, lots of danger, humor, thrills…and a guaranteed happy ending.

We are just one week away from the 5/10/22 release of THE BODYGUARD NEXT DOOR. So how about a fast teaser??

“I am your backup.” Flat. “And when you sign this contract, we will have a legally binding agreement. That agreement will tie us together, no matter what happens when the Feds arrive. I’m not going to let them take you away. Whatever is going on—whatever is scaring you, trust me, I can handle it.

”She wanted to trust him. She was tired of being afraid and shouldering everything on her own.

“Sign it…” Pierce said, voice low.

Her head turned back toward him.

“Sign it, then you can tell me all your deepest, darkest secrets, and I will carry them to my grave if that is what you want.”

Know what? I think it’s time for a tease. 😉 Here is the opening from THE BODYGUARD NEXT DOOR:

“I’ve been in some rough places,” Pierce Jennings confessed as he tightened his grip on the couch and angled down the hall that led toward his apartment. “Some of the worst hellholes on the planet. Places littered with gunfire and death. Places where ash filled the air, and every breath was laced with bitterness, but, until now, I have never, ever had to deal the torture of being trapped in—”

The door to his left swung open, and a cheerful voice called out, “Pierce!” A sweet cream and honey scent filled the air. “Do you need some help?”

“𝑇ℎ𝑒 𝑓𝑟𝑖𝑒𝑛𝑑 𝑧𝑜𝑛𝑒,” he finished darkly.
