Time to embrace your inner evil.

Rose Kinley never intended to be one of the most feared creatures to walk the earth. Once upon a time, she was a human—one who fell in love with a mysterious stranger. But when she got caught in a paranormal war, she lost her humanity and died…only to wake later as a vampire.

Now Rose has a choice. She can continue to try and be the good girl she once was or she can let her darkness out to play. Maybe it’s finally time for her to step into the dark.

He’s the reason she’s undead.

Panther shifter Julian Craig has a mission—protect Rose at all costs. It’s his fault that she lost her human life, and he literally made a deal with the devil so that she would have a second chance as a vampire. And as part of that deal, he’s supposed to keep his hands off Rose. An impossible task considering the dangerous lust he feels for her.

When Rose is targeted by a paranormal collector, Julian knows that he will have to let his own beast out if he is to protect the only woman who ever touched his battered soul. Rose may be afraid of the darkness she carries, but Julian is more than ready to show the world just what kind of a monster he truly is. Julian isn’t afraid of the dark…but the monsters that wait in the shadows? They will bow to him.

He’ll show her just how good it can feel…to be bad.

review~ Book provided by NetGalley in exchange for my honest opinion

Lately I’ve been having some bad luck with second books in a series, so I was wary if it would happen again, but I didn’t need to worry. It’s Cynthia Eden were talking about. She can’t write bad paranormal romance books 😉

I gave the previous book, Devil In Disguise, 4 stars, which in my opinion is a really good rating, so imagine my surprise that I liked On The Prowl still a teeny tiny bit more, why I will explain in the following review.

While I liked the story of Devil in Diguise I wasn’t all convinced by the characters, Luke and Mina. With On The Prowl it was different. I already liked Julian when he was just a side character and Rose was pretty bad-ass and had her own mind. Together those two characters worked well. Their relationship had chemistry and I really liked how you could see the trust and love growing between them.

Another reason – aside from the characters – that made me like On The Prowl more was that I’m a huge sucker for vampires and shifters and in this book we got both, so I was pretty happy.

The overall story of the book was interesting and had me hooked to the last page.

I have no complains when it comes to Cynthia Eden’s writing style. Like always she captured me right from the start and I basically flew through the pages. Hell, I’ve read like 40 books of her. I should like her writing style, don’t you think? 😉

I can’t wait to see what will happen in the next book, called Broken Angel. It will release in December and will feature Rayce. Why is December still so far away?

Rating: 4,25 stars

About the book

The Devil In Disguise
(Bad Things #1)
Cynthia Eden
ebook
Publication Date: June 28th 2016
ASIN: B01F43C9GK

Don’t make the devil angry…

Luke Thorne loves having one hell of a good time. As the ruler of every dark creature to walk the earth, he certainly has more than a bit of a bad side. He lives for danger and isn’t the type to lose his heart—mostly because he doesn’t have one. Then she walks into his life.

Mina James is seduction in the flesh, a perfect temptation that the devil himself couldn’t pass up. Too late, Luke realizes he’s let a real siren into his life, a woman who is bent on using his dark powers to free herself from hidden enemies. Since Luke isn’t the type of man to be used, he should walk away from her, but…something about Mina draws him close.

Soon he’s realizing that she isn’t who she appears to be. Not dark and cold, but burning red hot. Mina is a woman fighting for her life—and the Lord of the Dark suddenly finds himself in an unlikely role…hero. Luke isn’t going to let her enemies destroy Mina. He will fight heaven and hell to keep her. But in the end, the secrets they both carry may just rip apart a love that should never have been…

There are Bad Things in the world…very, very bad. Are you ready for them?

review~ Book provided by NetGalley in exchange for my honest opinion

Let me start this review off with saying that I am absolutely in love with this cover. I can’t even describe why exactly. If I had a book shelf I would totally get The Devil In Disguise as a paperback just to showcased the cover on it.

Then I’m so glad Cynthia Eden is finally back in the paranormal romance world. I wasn’t that impressed by her last few suspense romances. Also I really like the take she took with these books. Instead on the good paranormal creatures, she decided to go with the bad ones. Though I have to say, sorry but they weren’t that bad, at least not the creatures.

The characters were bad/evil (whatever you want to call it) for the first half, but I felt like they lost some of their badness in the latter half. Note: I said some, not all of it ;). Nonetheless I still liked them all a lot and I really liked Luke’s attitude and Mina for being so scared of her bad flaws. Hilarious.

My favourite character though: Leo, Luke’s twin. I can’t really put my finger on the why, but I liked him the most and would like to see a book about him in the near future. Also Luke’s two best friends need books. The next one will be Julien’s. Yay! Can’t wait for it to come out in September.

I don’t know if I still have to say anything about Cynthia Eden’s writing style. I’m a sucker for her books, therefore I like her writing style – a lot.

Excerpt

No judgment,” he murmured. “There’s no anger in your eyes, no rage or disgust at me for being a cold bastard. No pity for the kid I was who got beaten in a dirty alley and left to die.”

Don’t be too sure you understand what I feel.”

Why not? I actually think I understand you very, very well.”

Sarah backed up a step.

A faint smile curved his lips. “It was there from the first time I saw you. That instant connection. Doesn’t happen often. Actually, it’s never happened to me before. I looked up, saw you, and thought—”

Sarah pretty much ran for the door.

But he caught her. His hands wrapped around her and Jax pulled her back against his body. His hold wasn’t hard or rough. Oddly, it was infinitely tender.

Do you know what I saw when I looked in your eyes?” he whispered into her ear.

Sarah shook her head.

You were hurting. Trying to hide your pain, but I could still see it. I looked at you and thought—I never want her to hurt again.

Tears stung her eyes. “You don’t know me. Or what I’ve done.” Jax thought his past was bad? It was nothing compared to hers. She still had nightmares that had her waking in the night, choking for breath, and begging for help.

Help that hadn’t come. Not in time.

Tell me why you came to see me tonight, Sarah.”

She sucked in a quick breath and decided to go with the truth. “Because I didn’t want to lie in bed and be afraid. Because I didn’t want to think about the past or the future.” Because she’d felt that insane connection between them, too.

The first time she’d seen him, she’d looked into his eyes and thought—

He can handle all my darkness. He won’t ever be afraid of what I tell him.

Because his gaze had told her that he’d already looked into hell … and hadn’t given a damn about the demons there.

He turned her in his arms. She made herself look up and into his eyes. He was so warm and strong against her. And he made her … want. Yearn for things that she’d denied herself for so very long.

Because she hadn’t wanted anyone to get close. She hadn’t trusted anyone with all her secrets.

She didn’t trust him, either. She’d be a fool to do that. But—she did want him. And every instinct Sarah possessed screamed at her that Jax Fontaine could give her the sensual oblivion she craved.

A few hours to forget. A few hours to just pretend that I’m not the freak in the room. The monster that everyone else fears.

What do you want from me?” Jax asked her.

Just a night. She’d be leaving New Orleans soon, flying out on a plane and heading back to her little house in the suburbs of Atlanta. They wouldn’t see each other again. So no one else would know about what happened tonight. Just her.

Just him.

Dark Secrets Anthology ~ Interviews + Review

Let me start this post with a little overall info about Dark Secrets.

Beware this will be a long post 😉

Here we go.

Synopsis: dark secrets

Six award-winning authors bring you this spellbinding collection of stories about dark desires, mysterious worlds, and danger that lurks in the shadows of the night. Where nothing is black and white; where things might not be as they seem; where magic and mayhem rule.

MARION, MISSING by Rachel Caine

Valentine is a detective with two major problems: he’s been offered a kidnapping case that will probably get him killed, and his partner won’t let him turn it down. He owes her that much … since his partner’s a ghost, and he blames himself for her death. A dark, haunting noir mystery of love, hate and loss.

FEMME FATALE by Cynthia Eden

PI Mick Swayne has seen it all—his clients have included liars, thieves, and even killers. He thinks he can handle anything and anyone. Then she walks into his office. Savannah Moreau is beautiful, seductive, and…a vampire? The gorgeous vamp hires Mick to help her track down a killer who is hunting in Chicago, but as Mick slips deeper into Savannah’s paranormal world, he wonders if he can really trust his new client…

DANCE WITH THE DEVIL by Megan Hart

When the devil starts the music, you’d better get ready to dance.
Kathleen Murphy has sold her soul to the devil. Fame, fortune, success…everything she’s ever dreamed of is hers, and all she has to do is the devil’s bidding. When love comes knocking, the last thing in the world she wants to do is involve Jake in her twisted world, but the devil’s started up the jukebox and Kathleen has no choice but to learn the steps

THE CONSORT by Suzanne Johnson

Faulkner Hearne, the captain of the ruthless Fae Hunters, finds his duty at odds with his heart when he’s ordered to capture the consort of Faerie’s cruel Prince of Summer when she flees across the veil into modern New Orleans. Can Faulk turn Liandra over to a certain death at the hands of the prince, or will he risk a war with Faerie in order to save her?
An all-new novella set in the Sentinels of New Orleans multiverse.

HEART’S BLOOD by Jeffe Kennedy, a Twelve Kingdoms novella

A dark fairytale retelling of a princess robbed of rank, husband and even her name.
Nix is nothing. The Princess Natilde—her former waiting woman—attacked her on the journey to wed Prince Cavan, stripping her of everything and taking her place. With no serving skills, Nix becomes a goose girl. Perhaps if Nix keeps her promise never to reveal who she really is, Natilde won’t carry out her vile threats. Prince Cavan entered his arranged marriage determined to have a congenial, if not loving relationship with his future queen—for the sake of both their kingdoms. But, his wife repels him more each day and he finds himself absurdly drawn to the lovely Nix.

THE DJINN IN THE MIRROR by Mina Khan, a Djinn World novella

A paranormal Cinderella story with a young witch as the heroine and a wicked, sexy djinn instead of a fairy godmother.
Dahlia, the step-daughter of a power hungry wizard, promises to free a djinn trapped in a mirror if he rescues her from impending death. But Ashmael the djinn has his own agenda: to trick & seduce his way to freedom. The only problem is he ends up falling for Dahlia. Can he win his freedom and save the girl?

~ INTERVIEWs ~

I was lucky enough to ask every in this anthology participating author three questions. I asked the same three questions, because I love to see how the answers vary.

Thank you all for your effort. I really appreciate it.

>> Rachel Caine <<

1. How did you get the idea for your short story? I started with the title for this one, and an image of someone scraping painted names off of a private investigator’s office door. As I started thinking about it, I realized it blended with a puzzling (unsolved) pattern of real crimes that took place in my city (though in the 1970s, not the 1950s). Setting something in the 1950s in a Texas town gave me the chance to talk about the very strong, stark racial issues of the time, too.

2. With which one of your characters from your short story can you identify yourself the most? I think it’s probably Grandma Carlyle. She’s a strong, no-nonsense woman who didn’t give up when others did. In many ways, she’s the prime mover of this story.

3. What do you enjoy more – writing short stories or full-length books? They both have strong attractions for me. I love being able to alternate them … short stories are low commitment in terms of time, which means I can just release myself to have fun with them. I generally write them by the seat of the pants, not storyboarded out. Novels take much more planning, and which the process and rewards are great, the commitment can be daunting. Being able to do a run of short stories helps me refresh!

>> Cynthia Eden <<

1. How did you get the idea for your short story? I’ve always loved the idea of the sexy Femme Fatale heroines in the old school noir flicks—so I decided to take that Femme Fatale persona to the extreme…and my heroine, Savanna Moreau (a real vamp!) was born.

2. With which one of your characters from your short story can you identify yourself the most? LOL, actually, I think it would be the hero—Mick! He’s just a normal guy, living his life—and then all of a sudden he finds himself surrounded by monsters.

3. What do you enjoy more – writing short stories or full-length books? I love writing both—I think varying things up and writing stories of different lengths gives my mind a chance to focus in a new way (I’m not sure if that makes sense!). But stories of different lengths require me to try new pacing and plot methods—and I enjoy the challenge that these stories can present.

>> Megan Hart <<

1. How did you get the idea for your short story? Dance with the Devil is a follow-up to a short story I’d written called Ride with the Devil. Though you don’t have to Ride in order to Dance, I wanted to explore what happened to the characters after “the end.”

2. With which one of your characters from your short story can you identify yourself the most? The heroine, Kathleen, for sure.

3. What do you enjoy more – writing short stories or full-length books? I really like short stories, but I also love novels and novellas, so…everything!

>> Suzanne Johnson <<

1. How did you get the idea for your short story? I had recently done a lot of behind-the-scenes worldbuilding to bring Fairie and the Fae into my Sentinels of New Orleans urban fantasy series, so I wanted to do something else in that world, particularly with my Fae Hunters–the ancestors of mythical Hearne the Hunter who guard the veil between Faerie and the human world. The story itself is not tied to the series, really, but is just part of the shared world.

2. With which one of your characters from your short story can you identify yourself the most? I most identify with the hero, Faulkner Hearne. He is a man (well, faery) who becomes torn between his duty, his responsibilities, and his heart–that type of struggle is meaningful to me personally, so I understand the tug between doing what’s expected and doing what your heart wants.

3. What do you enjoy more – writing short stories or full-length books? I’ll always be a novelist, although I have grown to enjoy writing shorter works, especially novellas. They are harder than full-length novels to write, though!

>> Jeffe Kennedy <<

1. How did you get the idea for your short story? I always love the fairytale The Goose Girl and it hit me that this collection would be the perfect venue for a retelling.

2. With which one of your characters from your short story can you identify yourself the most? I always identify with all of my characters on some level or another, or I don’t think I’d be able to write them well. But, Nix and Cavan, as my heroine and hero, are both people I admire and understand.

3. What do you enjoy more – writing short stories or full-length books? Hmm. Probably longer novels at this point. I started out writing short – stories and essays – and I really had to learn over the course of years how to write long. Now my novels keep coming out longer and longer! I like having the room to slowly develop a more complex story. That said, I don’t think HEART’S BLOOD would have worked as a longer piece. The tension of the deceit couldn’t be realistically maintained for long.

>> Mina Khan <<

1. How did you get the idea for your short story? I always like to play with established conventions and in the djinn mythology you always hear about djinn being imprisoned in lamps and rings, so I wondered what if a djinn were trapped in a mirror? Then my mind went in all kinds of naughty directions and I ended up writing The Djinn in the Mirror. It was a lot of fun!

2. With which one of your characters from your short story can you identify yourself the most? Um, Rasputin…the cat.

3. What do you enjoy more – writing short stories or full-length books? I really like novellas because they’re not too long, and not too short. But I write what I’m inspired to write at the moment, so I have written short stories, poems, food columns, essays and novels…and I enjoyed every single experience.

~ Review ~

This anthology took me by surprise. Why you ask? Because I liked every single one of them, even the fae story by Suzanne Johnson and I’m not that much into fae.

Every one of them were quick to read. And a little dark, exactly like the title promised.

If you are in the mood of a short story collection of different authors or if you want to find some new authors of the paranormal romance genre, I recommend that you give Dark Secrets a try.

I know I will look up the other books written by all these authors.

Rating: 4,5 stars.

#1: Eternal Huntereternal hunter

Cynthia Eden delves into the dark realms of the Others, where desires and dangerous games await the unsuspecting in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

Assistant DA Erin Jerome has a secret. Make that two. One: She’s not entirely human–she’s Other, desperately trying to keep her supernatural strength under wraps. Two: she’s got a killer stalking her–an Other rogue set on “gifting” her bloody corpses, not to mention nights lying awake in terror. Small wonder she’s been having bad luck with men.

But the bounty hunter on her new case isn’t worried about any of that. Jude Donovan is a shapeshifter himself, and the new DA’s midnight hair and addictive scent tell him all he thinks he needs to know: She’s gorgeous, she’s definitely not human, and she’s bringing out the animal in him in a really good way. He might have to track a psychotic Other stalker through half of Louisiana. But he might also get the chance to watch Erin’s wild side come out and play.

#2: I’ll Be Slaying YouI'll be slaying you

Cynthia Eden returns to the realm of the Other, where the supernatural bounty hunters of Night Watch work hard and play harder. . .Sandra “Dee” Daniels is a vampire’s worst nightmare. Sure, she couldn’t get up to five-six in the highest heels money can buy–not that she ever wears heels. But the monsters in her past and the stake in her boot are enough to keep most bloodsuckers interested in staying undead out of Baton Rouge.

But there are changes afoot on her turf. Rumors of a Born Master in town–a vampire so powerful he can make the streets run with blood. And a new face in Dee’s dive bars and alleyways–Simon Chase, a strong, sexy shadow with a haunted past of his own. Simon knows a lot about the dark side of Dee’s work. He knows even more about how to make her body spark with desire. But the hot lust shimmering between them is only the beginning. Because Simon also knows a secret that will change Dee’s life–if she can live long enough to uncover it.

From Louisiana’s sultry swamps to its desolate cemeteries, Jana and Zane must race to destroy the mastermind behind Perseus before their world goes up in flames – and with it, a desire that burns too hot to resist.

Never Cry Wolfnever cry wolf

RUNNING WITH A DANGEROUS CROWD

Lucas Simone is not the kind of guy you mess with. He’s big, he’s strong, and his eyes hint at a wilder side most women can’t handle. Of course, that’s because his predatory instincts are no metaphor–he’s a genuine Grade-A top-quality werewolf, tough enough to fight his way to dominance over the scariest pack on the West Coast. There’s only one chink in his armor. Unlike most alpha dogs, Lucas has a reputation for protecting the weak and innocent.

Sarah King is counting on that protective impulse–it’s the only thing standing between her and certain death. There are only two problems: one, she’s not quite as innocent as she’d like Lucas to believe. And two, if he doesn’t stop stoking Sarah’s animal lust, it’s only a matter of time before her own wild side gets unleashed…

#1: Hotter After Midnighthotter after midnight

A Seductive Nighttime World. . . Dr. Emily Drake’s psychotherapy patients tend to be a little unusual. Instead of midlife crises and mother fixations, Emily treats vampires with blood phobias and sex-demons looking for meaningful relationships.

Especially not one like Detective Colin Gyth, whose gold-flecked eyes and predatory air make Emily realize how much she longs to lose control. . .

A Dark And Dangerous Hunger. . .

Smart and sexy, Emily brings out the alpha male in Colin, unleashing a wild desire that takes them both over the edge. . . But in the shadows, the Night Butcher waits, eager to spill Emily’s blood and taste her terror. And he’ll use any means to destroy her, including the one person she has grown to trust. . .

#2: Midnight Sinsmidnight sins

Cara Maloan doesn’t look like a monster. In fact, the gorgeous blond nightclub singer possesses heavenly attributes that make Atlanta detective Todd Brooks sure there’s a higher power somewhere. But a twisted killer is leaving a trail of bodies in seedy hotel rooms across town. The male victims show no wounds–it’s as if the life was simply drained from them. And right now, mysterious Cara is Todd’s only suspect.

Cara knows it’s foolish to be so drawn to a man who thinks she’s a murderer. She also knows Detective Brooks would find the truth even harder to swallow. Cara is one of the Other, a race of powerful, paranormal creatures who live among humans. Cara’s particular abilities make men putty in her hands–all except this rugged, sexy-as-hell detective. But now someone, or something, has singled Cara out for serious payback…

As uneasy trust gives way to mind-blowing desire, Cara and Todd will go head-to-head with a killer whose mission is deeply personal, and who’s determined to serve up revenge that’s hotter than hellfire, and just as deadly…

#3: Midnight’s Mastermidnight's master

In a world of shadows, desire conquers all…

Tall, dark, and formidable, Niol Lapen is the last demon on earth most people would ask for a favor, yet the sexy little reporter who wanders into his club dares to do exactly that. Holly Storm already knows too much about his kind, and Niol has no wish to help her get in deeper over her head. But working alongside her may be the only way to stop a killer, even as it ignites a primal desire unlike anything he’s known.

Holly has seen firsthand what Niol is capable of, but that doesn’t frighten her nearly as much as her body’s instinctive reaction to him, or the wild, fierce passion that would tempt her to follow him through hell itself. Something evil and relentless is prowling the streets of Atlanta. And as Holly’s search leads her into danger that even Niol could never have predicted, she’ll uncover a secret that could rip her world apart…

Ten Authors I’ve Read The Most Books From

#1: Cynthia Eden: 39 books(!!!!)

Wow, I’ve just counted them and I’ve really read so many books by her. Oo I’m kind of shocked right now and I haven’t even read all her series completely. I’m still missing like 12-15 books.

By the way I wrote a lot of reviews for her books in the time I’ve been blogging. If you are interested in reading one of those, just typ Cynthia Eden into the search bar.

#2: Nalini Singh: 24 books

I only counted her full novels, no novellas 😉 the number would be a lot higher then. I really like Miss Singh’s paranormal series, but I’m not really a fan of her contemporary series. I’ve read the first one of it and I think I dnf-ed it :(. In Germany we have this saying: Schuster bleib bei deinen Leisten. In english it is something like this “A cobble should stick to his last.” I really think she should stick to the paranormal romance genre.

#3: Jennifer L. Armentrout (16) / J.Lynn (4): 20 books

Can you believe I’ve almost forgotten her on my list! Bad me! Bad, bad me! I love her Lux, Covenant and Dark Elements series and please don’t make me pick between one of them. Her New Adult stuff that she writes under her pseudonym are nice as well.

#4: Jeaniene Frost: 12 books

So sad her Night Huntress series is over, but I’m eagerly awaiting her last Night Prince book. Also I’ve read somewhere that Ian will finally get his own book/spin-off(?). YAY!

#5: Ilona Andrews: 11 books

I’m massive behind on her Kate Daniels series! I apologize. I’m working on it 😉 I loved Burn For Me and I still need to read the last book in the The Edge series.

#6: Lara Adrian: 11 books

I liked her Midnight Breed series up to the point where she started writing her second story arc. After that I quit.

#7: Rhyannon Byrd: 11 books

I really like her Bloodrunner series and I’ve read some of her Primal Instinct books.

#8: JR Ward: 10 books

I actually stopped reading her books a while back, because I wasn’t invested in them anyone.

#9: Rachel Vincent: 9 books

I loved her Soul Screamer series, read the first of her Unbound series (which wasn’t for me) and I kind of liked The Stars Never Rise.

#10: Jennifer Estep: 8 books

I read a good part of her Elemental Assassins series, but I binged on them and that was a mistake, since they are really repetitive. So I stopped. I’m currently in the slow process of listening to her Mythos Academy series and I still need to read Cold Burn Of Magic :/

Synopsis:

She’s the obsession two men share: one wants her love, the other wants her life.

A shared passion for justice first brought Baton Rouge district attorney Lauren Chandler and US marshal Anthony Ross together—when each played their part in bringing down the infamous Bayou Butcher. The sparks flying between the two made it clear they weren’t just a legal dream team. Then desire had to make way for duty, and what they had was done. But it would never be over.

Five years later, it’s none other than the Butcher who gets things started again, when his shocking jailbreak reunites the lawyer and the lawman…and reignites their love. But this time, the pair is in danger of being permanently parted—by a killer with revenge on his mind, and Lauren on the top of his list. As a new wave of terror sweeps through the streets and swamps of Baton Rouge, one man will pit his boundless passion against another’s relentless hate, for the life of the woman who obsesses them both.
