In this gripping new series by New York Times bestselling author Cynthia Eden, a disgraced FBI profiler must save her reputation by stopping a sadistic killer she knows all too well

Former FBI agent Samantha Dark was one of the most respected profilers in the bureau, an expert on the twisted minds and dark hearts of the most depraved criminals. But when her own former lover turned out to be the serial killer she was hunting, Samantha's career was destroyed. Blamed for the FBI's failure on the complex case, Samantha left Washington, DC, for the quiet anonymity of Alabama.

Now an all-too-familiar killer is hunting once again. She can catch the cunning assassin, but that means putting her trust in her former partner, Blake Gamble. Ex-military, Blake is tough, protective, precise. With her entire life on the brink, she knows he wants her back in the FBI…and possibly more.

But someone else wants her, too. A threat is waiting in the dark, a killer who has set his sights on the ultimate trophy victim—Samantha.

He thinks the past is over. He’s dead wrong.

Dr. Joel Landry never expected to fall hard and fast for beautiful, mysterious, and maddening Chloe Hastings…but he did. Now he can’t imagine his life without her—and her band of misfit/shady friends. He thinks that he is finally putting his brutal past to rest as he and Chloe begin their new crime-solving partnership, but there are dark secrets pushing to the surface. Secrets that might destroy his relationship with Chloe.

She’s lying to protect him.

A killer has followed Joel to New Orleans. Someone who has been watching him for a very long time. Someone who wants to turn the doctor…into a monster. But Chloe isn’t about to let that happen. She’s found a man who suits her needs perfectly—and she will not let anyone take him from her.  She will do anything necessary to protect Joel, even if that means hiding an unspeakable truth from him. Or killing to shield him.  A woman has to do what a woman has to do…

Betrayal burns deep.

The darkness from Joel’s past is trying to swallow him whole, and when he learns that Chloe knew the truth about him from day one, his world explodes. A killer has Joel in his sights, and the killer wants to push Joel to the edge—and beyond. And the best way to do that? Take away the only person that Joel loves in this world. Take away Chloe.

Chloe is no one’s victim.

Chloe’s greatest strength is her ability to get into the minds of killers, and this time, her hunt for a murderer is personal. The killer in the dark has picked the wrong team to attack. Chloe and Joel are on the case, and they will not stop until the perp is the one begging for mercy. The hunt is on. 

Author’s Note: Chloe and Joel are back! Their attraction is just as red-hot, their need for each other even stronger than before. Love, obsession? Maybe they are the same. Joel knows that Chloe turned his life around, and he can’t imagine his world without her. They’re hunting a monster, someone playing a very dangerous game,  and it will take all of their cunning and deadly skills to stop a predator who has been manipulating his victims from the shadows. Thrills, chills, red-hot romance, and plenty of surprises are in store. Think you know Chloe and Joel? Think again. 

Lights. Camera. Action.


Gwenevere Solomon is the current “It” girl in Hollywood. The star of a dozen films, she seemingly has the world at her feet. Gwen’s problem? She also has one very dangerous stalker at her door. His attacks are getting bolder, and Gwen is becoming more and more afraid. Because this stalker…he knows secrets that she’s fought hard to keep buried. The kind of secrets that can destroy a woman’s life.


A ghost from her past can save her.


Gwen needs protection, and she needs that protection now. So enter her new leading man…Simon Forrest. Tall, dark, and ever-so deadly, Simon is the lover she left behind. Or rather, the lover who left her behind. He went off and became a SEAL, saving the world and riding one adrenaline high after the other. But he’s back now, and as part of Wilde's elite security team, he’s supposed to offer the best, most discreet protection service in the business. He’ll pretend to be her lover so the press won’t realize her life is going to hell, and Simon will stop her stalker.


He can keep his hands off her…and keep her shielded at the same time.


Simon never got over Gwen, and the fact that she’s been filling the big screen with her gorgeous self? Yeah, it’s just made her even more tempting…and put her even further out of his reach. Simon was never good enough for Gwen, and he knew it. But this time, he can help her. He can catch the stalker, unmask the jerk, and keep Gwen shining in her spotlight. Easy as pie. Or, it should be.


Except…Simon might not be able to stop himself from falling for her all over again.


Because when the cameras stop watching, that’s when the real action begins…GUARDING GWEN, a sexy romantic suspense from New York Times best-selling author Cynthia Eden.


Author’s Note: Love sexy suspense and second chance romance? Then GUARDING GWEN is for you. A stand-alone romance with no cliff-hangers, this title features one red-hot, alpha hero and a strong, funny heroine who has plenty of secrets hiding in her past.
