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. For 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.
PROTECTING PIPER…a sizzling new romantic suspense from New York Times and USA Today best-selling author Cynthia Eden.
Security agent Julia Slate is going undercover. Her assignment? Protect rocker Bran Copper. He's sexy, has a reputation for living life to the extreme, and he's also the target of one very obsessed fan. Julia's job is to keep Bran safe...and the catch? Bran can't know that she's his bodyguard. Bran's manager has hired her because the star refuses to get protection. Bran just wants to be left alone. With his stalker escalating, that isn't an option.
It should be easy to keep him at arm’s length.
Julia pretends to be Bran's new assistant as she moves into his mountain home. She acts shy and reserved, a delicate flower who isn't a threat...when she can totally kick butt any day of the week. She will stay with Bran twenty-four, seven, and make sure he's safe. It's supposed to be business only, and there is no way the guy is her type. He's everything that she doesn't want in a lover. Right? But...the more time they spend together, the more she realizes that the bad boy? It's just an image he projects. There is a whole lot more to the real man.
But she’s lying to him.
Bran has been betrayed over and over again, and now Julia is lying to him, too. She thought her lies didn't matter. She thought she was keeping him safe, but she never expected to give her heart to the man she's been hired to protect.
He’s never met anyone like her.
Bran's new assistant is gorgeous, smart, and...making him crazy. He's used to women throwing themselves at him, used to people not caring about who he is—just that he’s famous. But Julia isn't like that. She touches something inside of him, she makes him want, makes him crave everything that he's never had. Soon Bran can't imagine ever letting her go. He needs her, he wants her, and what Bran wants…he gets.
As the threats keep mounting, as the stalker closes in, will Bran be able to forgive Julia when he learns the truth? Or will they crash and burn? Because THE HEART YOU BREAK...it could be the one that matters most.
Author's Note: Ready for sin and rock? Because Bran is one sexy singer, and Julia is a bodyguard who will do anything to protect her man. But as Bran falls for Julia, as the lies twist around them, things are going to become wild and dangerous. No cliff-hangers. This book can be read as a stand-alone. So have fun and rock on!
“Deadly Obsession . . . is an absolute must-read! Jaycee Clark has delivered a masterpiece!” —Fallen Angel Reviews

Devoted . . . but kept in the dark
Brayden Kinncaid has known Christian for years and only recently discovered his feelings for her go beyond friendship. But the changes in the once strong-willed woman are startling. Her haunted gray eyes and darting looks lead him to believe something is drastically wrong. No matter how hard he pushes her, she won’t confide in him. Brayden vows to discover what she is hiding—before it is too late.
She’s his angel . . . his love . . . his obsession . . .
Demented and sadistic, he’d once possessed her. And though she’s been gone nine long years, he knew she wasn’t dead, and now he’s finally found her. He knows everything about her. Everything she does. Where she works, where she lives. And he’s come back into her life to reclaim what’s his.
"DEADLY OBSESSION is the third story about the Kinncaid family and is a heart-wrenching tale. A well-written, in-depth romantic suspense, Jaycee Clark's DEADLY OBSESSION is one of those stories that will linger in your mind and heart long after the story is over.” —Sinclair Reid, Romance Reviews Today
2004 Best Small Press Romance Award Winner
"This is an exceptionally well-written novel. It's Clark's third book about the lives of the compelling Kinncaid brothers, but it easily stands alone. The main characters are subtle and complex from page one, especially the particularly strong, emotionally full-ranged heroine. The dialogue is outstanding, and the pacing both realistic and highly suspenseful." —Marilyn Weigel, Romantic Times

Only she can't.
Because she immediately runs into trouble—trouble in the form of a tall, dark, and deadly sexy vampire prince named Devereaux. He claims that he's there to help her, but she's not buying his story. The guy is no Prince Charming. After all, Prince Charming isn't supposed to come with fangs and an appetite for blood. But Devereaux says that he's been waiting centuries for her. That she is meant to rule with him. Obviously, he's wrong. And possibly insane. She's not meant to be the queen of the vamps. No matter what Devereaux says.
But he's not the only one after her. Paranormal monsters are coming out of the woodwork. And the bite that she got? It's making her feel strange. Hungry. Her self-control is shredding, and Lark knows she's changing. She just doesn't know what she'll become.
The new year won't go out with a bang...it will end with a bite.
