Fantastic Fives on Cynthia Eden

Five words and/or phrases that describe you:


Five people and or things that inspire you:

My son
The ocean

Scary movies

Five of your favorite authors:

Linda Howard
Jayne Ann Krentz
Krelsey Cole
Shannon McKenna
Alyssa Day

Describe five of your heroes/heroines through your eyes:

1. Dr. Emily Drake (HOTTER AFTER MIDNIGHT): She’s smart, she’s tough, and she’s got one hell of a past. I love Emily because she possesses a nifty special talent—she’s empathic, but her empathic power only works with paranormal beings (vampires, shifters, demons, etc). Despite having a foot in the “Other” world, Emily is a lot like most women. She, ahem, shares my addiction to chocolate...

2. Colin Gyth (HOTTER AFTER MIDNIGHT): He’s hot. Okay, I think he is. Tall. Strong. Sexy. And, under the right conditions, this Atlanta Police Detective can get down-right primal.

3. Cain Lawson (“Wicked Ways” in WHEN HE WAS BAD): Ah, Cain...I do love you. Handsome. Wild. He tries to be the good guy that he thinks his lady wants, but Cain just wasn’t ever meant to be good. No, he does bad so much better.

4. Luis D’Amil (“Spellbound” in EVERLASTING BAD BOYS): Luis is the Boogeyman. Seriously. Okay, he’s the Boogeyman if the B-MAN is big, tough, and really attractive. He’s an assassin, and a protector, and he just can’t help falling for his heroine. What can I say? He’s got a thing for witchy women.

5. Serena Tyme (“Spellbound” in EVERLASTING BAD BOYS): A witchy woman. Powerful. The lady has a spine of steel and a protective streak that runs straight to her soul. She also has a weakness for a certain immortal assassin.

Five reasons to read your books:

Hot reading material. :)

Suspense and romance.
Shifter heroes. Come on—shifters can be so sexy.
Because don’t you ever wonder “What if?” I wonder that all the time…and I try to answer that question in my books.
Kick-ass heroes and heroines.

Good morning, Danette and Cynthia!

I haven't read anything by Cynthia yet, but between your post and the stuff over at TGTBTU, I'm very intrigued.

Best of luck with it, Cynthia!

Cynthia Eden said...

Hi, Danette! Thank you so much for interviewing me and posting my book information.

And thank you, nascaraandbeans and azteclady! I am always happy to intrigue. :-)

Cynthia & Danette:

I cannot wait to read Hotter After Midnight! Shifters are the BEST. They bring the hot, steamy, no holds barred aspect to the story and always seem to make their women feel out of control with passion, lust and love.

Thank you both for the posting the interview, it is wonderful to see what drives the author to do what they do and write what they write.

Have a great day!

Hi! I read When He Was Bad and I loved it. I've been looking forward to reading Hotter After Midnight. I love Cynthia's writing! Enter me too please.

Cathy said...

Hi Cynthia, your five reasons for reading your books, are exactly why I love reading paranormal romance stories so much. Great excerpt, too, will definitely be adding this book to my must buy list.

limecello said...

Hi Cynthia,

Thanks for visiting today! You're a new to me author too, but I've heard SUCH great things about this book and I waaaaaaaaaaant it!!!
Also, I loved your 5s :D.

Pam P said...

Congrats on release day, Cynthia! I've enjoyed your short stories a lot, can't wait to read this one.

danetteb said...

Thank you Cynthia. I'm glad to have you chatting here with us.

Hotter After Midnight is my first Cynthia Eden read and once summer comes I'll be reading more from you :D

Hugs, Danette

danetteb said...

Morning Ladies!

Cynthia has great Fives, I especially love Kick-ass heroes and heroines. They keep me up late at night.:)

Hugs, Danette

Diana Evans said...

Hi Danette...

wonderful Fantastic Fives with Cynthia...I love these interviews...

great work!

CrystalGB said...

What a great interview. I enjoyed Cynthia's answers.

Cynthia Eden said...

Oh, wow, Lisa--you've just described exactly why I love shifters! Thank you!

Thank you, Nicki! :-)

Hi, Cathy! Thank you--and I'm glad you enjoyed the excerpt!

LOL, Limecello--these 5s were hard for me. Danette had me staring at the computer screen a LONG time as I tried to think of five words to describe myself. And I sure am glad you've heard positive things about this book--always great to know!!

Thank you, Pam! I do love to write the shorter stories (novellas) but it was sure great to have the opportunity to write a longer work too. My plan for the future--to hopefully be able to keep doing both! I think the shorter stories are a great, energizing change of pace after a novel.

Thank you, ACDaisy!! :-) I'm pretty fond of the cover, too.

Danette--you are so great! Thank you, lady!

Hi,Diana! I love Danette's interviews, too--and I was so excited when she invited me to her lovely home on the web.

Thank you, Crystal. Danette had me sweating a few of those.

Thanks for the comments--and, Danette--thank you again!
