Blog Tour: 13. & 14. Cynthia Eden's Deadly Heat and Deadly Lies!

January 24, 2011
Cynthia Eden's touring for her new books, Deadly Heat and Deadly Lies! Deadly Heat comes out in February, and Deadly Lies in March, so you're getting a sneak peek at these, as well as an awesome giveaway!


About the author:
Award-winning author Cynthia Eden writes paranormal romances and romantic suspense novels. She is currently very busy writing her stories for Grand Central Publishing and Kensington Brava.

She has always wanted to write (don’t most authors say that?), and particularly enjoys creating stories about monsters–vampires, werewolves, and even the real-life monsters that populate her romantic suspense stories.

(Back in the day…) Cynthia graduated summa cum laude from the University of South Alabama where she studied Sociology (because people interest her) and Communication (because she likes to write about said people). Cynthia has worked as a college admissions counselor, a teacher, and as an editor. But now, Cynthia is thrilled to be spending her days making up stories.

Since there are TWO books in this tour post, I'll recap each, along with the review, separately. Be sure to read all the way to the end for the GIVEAWAY!!

deadly heat
About Deadly Heat (Deadly #2):
She wants revenge...

Six months after her lover died in an arsonist’s blaze, firefighter Lora Spade calls in the FBI’s elite Serial Services Division to track the elusive killer. When Special Agent Kenton Lake is lured into a violent inferno, Lora pulls him to safety and is stunned – not by the fire, but by her own searing attraction to Kent. For the first time in months, she longs for something other than vengeance.

He wants her...

Kenton’s interest in Lora should be purely professional. But one fleeting kiss and he can’t get her out of his mind. Her combination of strength and vulnerability makes him want to protect her, and that means solving this case – and fast. For even the passion igniting between them can’t hide a terrifying truth: Lora is the next target in a murderer’s sadistic, fiery game.

A vicious killer wants only... DEADLY HEAT

drey's thoughts:
Deadly Heat got me hooked quickly, I couldn't put it down. The story moves fast, and Eden definitely kept me guessing. The cast of characters stood out, so you always knew who was whom, even when they weren't the leads. And the chemistry between Kenton and Lora... hot is an understatement. Phew!

drey's rating: 4/5 Excellent: Add it to your to-read pile if romantic suspense is your thing.

deadly lies
About Deadly Lies (Deadly #3):
She wants to hide the past…

FBI Special Agent Samantha Kennedy is haunted by memories of the serial killer who abducted her. To keep the darkness at bay, she pretends to be a different, more confident woman. This Samantha doesn’t fear every unknown face. So she throws caution to the wind and shares a night of unbridled passion with a handsome stranger.

He needs to uncover the truth…

One night isn’t enough for successful entrepreneur Max Ridgeway. He wants more of the sexy, smart, mysterious woman who slipped away before dawn. When they meet again, their attraction is undeniable—until his stepbrother goes missing, and Max realizes that Samantha isn’t who she seems. But they must trust each other to trap a ring of blood-thirsty kidnappers before the nightmares that terrorize Sam become irrevocably real.

As a merciless criminal spins a web of...DEADLY LIES

drey's thoughts:
Hoo boy... I thought Deadly Heat was hot! It was, but boy oh boy, Deadly Lies scorches your fingers just from holding the book! This one focuses on Sam, who'd been through hell and back, not just once, but twice. And is now poised for a third return, when the step-brother of the guy she's "seeing" is kidnapped by a sicko who likes to inflict pain. Ugh. I hate pain...

The characters are well-drawn, and the story pulls you in. I got these books on Friday, and couldn't help but read them back-to-back. I want more Cynthia!

drey's rating: 4/5 Excellent: Seriously, if you like romantic suspense, you should read Cynthia Eden's Deadly series!

I loved ‘Deadly Fear’ and thought it was a great read. Monica and Luke were well written characters, and my only hope is there’s still more of them to come in future books. It was such a well written story, fast paced, and left nothing undone, Eden followed the story to absolute completion! I truly hated to put it down, but when I did I rushed back to it the first minute I could. I’d love the chance to win these books, and thanks for hosting this giveaway!

I love this series because the heroes and heroines are real and have real live problems. The villain's reasons for what they do make also make sense. The first one Deadly Fear was just a really good story that I couldn't put down :)

Congrats on the release!

I'm into reading new authors, but sadly I have to say if it's not required by my instructors or the book is given to more or a rave review, I usually don't pick it up. But since I have started getting more interested in the Hatchett's Website, I have been exploring my authors. What I have read on the opening of these books, I have to say that I am seriously interested. I have to say, if an author can make me feel the emotions of her characters then their job is done! So please enter me into the contest. I would greatly appreciate it and the books. I LOVE BOOKS!

Unknown said...

I love paranormal romantic suspense. Cynthia is a favorite of mine and I would SOOOOOO love to win this contest. Crossing my fingers that I get my hands on these two books. The covers look amazing.


annalisa said...

I'm also a fan & book hoarder of Cynthia Eden's Paranormal bks. I would luv a chance to read her suspense bks to see if I would like this genre also. My collection consists of bks that are 70% PNR, 10% UF & 15% Historical genres with splash 5% straight romances ;) I know what I like to read and by whom and it's sometimes hard to buy outside your comfort zone when money is tight & the economy sucks. It will be so worth messing up my percentages to give a new genre a try especially from an author I already love. Plus, this will be a great birthday gift,seeing that you are ending this contest on it ;) Have a great day & keep warm (or cool) depending on where you live. We are just digging out of 26 inches of snow from our blizzard a few days ago. YUCK!

Unknown said...

I'm sorry I was supposed to leave my email address in my comment-usually some don't want this, sorry.

These books do sound interesting and they have beautiful matching covers.

ChrisS said...

I just got my copy of Deadly Fear and can't wait to start it. The Deadly series looks very exciting and what great covers!


Christine said...

Romance and suspense in one book, who could ask for a better read.

CherylS22 said...

I think that both books seem intriguing & I love it when a thriller includes a romance.
Thanks for the giveaway!
