Cynthia Eden Giveaway

Happy summer to you all! My boys have just two days of school left and then they're home with me for the entire summer, so I'd best get all the work done I can today and tomorrow. I'm *this* close to being done with Gage's story, then I'm moving on to Sean's. Woot!

Ignited is off to a great start, and the lovely Cynthia Eden was kind enough to host me on her blog last week to talk about the book and the Titanium Security Series.

Today I'm giving away a digital copy of her hot new romantic suspense release, Mine To Take, to a commenter here on my blog. Tell me your favorite thing about romantic suspense to enter. This contest is open to Kindle and Nook readers, and will close at 5 pm EST this evening.

Sometimes you want someone so much...

Sometimes you need someone so much...

Lust can become love.

And love can turn into a deadly obsession.


Skye Sullivan knows that someone is watching her. Not just watching--stalking her. Months ago, Skye was involved in a dangerous car accident. The accident ended her dancing career and sent her fleeing back to Chicago. Skye is convinced that her stalker caused the crash, and she fears that he won't stop pursuing her, not until she's dead.

When someone breaks into her apartment in Chicago, Skye turns to the one man she believes can protect her--Trace Weston. Once, Trace was her lover. Two lost souls, they'd come together in a firestorm of need and desire. But then Trace had pushed her away. He'd joined the military, vanishing from her life. She'd put all of her emotion into dancing, and she'd tried to forget him.

Now Trace is one of the most successful men in the United States. Rich, driven, and carrying dark secrets, he agrees to help Skye. He'll protect her from the danger that lurks in the darkness, but Trace wants more than to just be a guard for Skye.

He wants her. And he'll take her. The years have changed him, hardened him. He's not just a poor kid from the streets any longer. Now, he can have anything--or anyone--that he wants. And the one woman he has always wanted has just come back into his life. He won't let her go again.

But with the threats mounting against Skye, she suspects that her stalker may be intimately close. He's a man who knows her too well. As his attacks grow ever more dangerous, she realizes that if she trusts the wrong man, she could be making a fatal mistake.

Lust. Love. Obsession.

Just how far would you go in order to possess the one person you want the most?

Author's Note: MINE TO TAKE is a sexy romantic suspense novella--it contains approximately 41,000 words. MINE TO TAKE is intended for adults. Sexy situations and adult language will be found within the pages of this story--please consider yourself warned.

Titanium Security Series Launch

A few weeks sooner than anticipated, my new Titanium Security Series launches today with book #1, Ignited! I'm super excited about this series, which will have at least four books, each featuring one of my ex-Spec Ops band of brothers heroes.

Book 2 (Singed) will be out in August, and book 3 late this year.

When her father is murdered by a Taliban cell in the tribal regions of Pakistan, Khalia Patterson reluctantly steps into his shoes to carry on the legacy of Fair Start Foundation, a non-profit group dedicated to furthering the education of girls. There she meets Hunter Phillips, the ex-SEAL and head of her Titanium security team, and quickly learns that coming to Pakistan might prove to be a deadly decision.

Battling demons of his own, Hunter grudgingly leads Khalia’s protective detail as a favor to his boss. From their first meeting it’s clear she’s going to be trouble, and that the cell that killed her father is hell bent on taking her out as well. Keeping her alive is one of the toughest assignments he’s ever faced, yet through one harrowing situation after another she continually impresses him with her strength and inner courage. Even though he fights his feelings for her, it’s a losing battle. And when the job is over, he doesn’t know how he’ll let her go.

Available now at:

Happy reading!

The Civil War has torn Brianna Taylor’s family apart and made her a widow.
