Today I’m going to go over a couple of books that I read before I started blogging. I will admit that these three books really got me back into the reading spirit again. I had went through a dry spell for quite a long time before finding the first of this trilogy on the shelves at my local library. I loved it so much that I went out and bought it and the following two books in the series. These are a must have for a paranormal romance junkie like myself. If you haven’t read them you need to order them, borrow them or go buy them NOW 🙂

In her sexy and suspenseful new novel, Cynthia Eden introduces readers to a seductive world where powerful night creatures ignite dark, dangerous hungers. . .
Dr. Emily Drake’s patients tend to be a little unusual. Instead of the typical therapist’s caseload of midlife crises and mother fixations, Emily treats vampires with blood phobias and sex-demons looking for meaningful relationships. But her gift for recognizing and healing the Other–those creatures of the night that most humans don’t even know exist–requires a few house rules. First: Never trust a shifter. Especially not one like Detective Colin Gyth, whose gold-flecked eyes and predatory air make Emily realize how much she’s been longing to lose control. . .
Colin can’t believe the doctor he’s been assigned to work with on the Night Butcher murder investigation is the one person who could expose his true identity as a wolf shifter. Smart, sexy, and stubborn as hell, Emily brings out the alpha male in Colin, unleashing a wild, heady desire that takes them both over the edge.
But in the shadows, the Night Butcher waits. . .eager to spill Emily’s blood and taste her terror. And he’ll use any means to destroy her, including the one person she has grown to trust. . .
Nothing’s hotter than desire after dark…
Cara Maloan doesn’t look like a monster. In fact, the gorgeous blond nightclub singer possesses heavenly attributes that make Atlanta detective Todd Brooks sure there’s a higher power somewhere. But a twisted killer is leaving a trail of bodies in seedy hotel rooms across town. The male victims show no wounds-it’s as if the life was simply drained from them. And right now, mysterious Cara is Todd’s only suspect.
Cara knows it’s foolish to be so drawn to a man who thinks she’s a murderer. She also knows Detective Brooks would find the truth even harder to swallow. Cara is one of the Others, a race of powerful, paranormal creatures who live among humans. Cara’s particular abilities make men putty in her hands-all except this rugged, sexy-as-hell detective. But now someone, or something, has singled Cara out for serious payback…
As uneasy trust gives way to mind-blowing desire, Cara and Todd will go head-to-head with a killer whose mission is deeply personal, and who’s determined to serve up revenge that’s hotter than hellfire, and just as deadly…
In this sexy, gripping novel, Cynthia Eden draws readers deeper into the realm of the Others-vampires, shifters, and sinfully attractive demons whose powers are matched only by their dark hungers-
Tall, dark, and formidable, Niol Lapen is the last demon on earth most people would ask for a favor, yet the sexy little reporter who wanders into his club dares to do exactly that. Holly Storm already knows too much about his kind, and Niol has no wish to help her get in deeper over her head. But working alongside her may be the only way to stop a killer, even as it ignites a primal desire unlike anything he-s known.
Holly has seen firsthand what Niol is capable of, but that doesn-t frighten her nearly as much as her body-s instinctive reaction to him, or the wild, fierce passion that would tempt her to follow him through hell itself. Something evil and relentless is prowling the streets of Atlanta. And as Holly-s search leads her into danger that even Niol could never have predicted, she-ll uncover a secret that could rip her world apart. . .
Midnight’s Master was my favorite out of the three because of Niol. I love me a mean demon with a heart that just needs a slight jump start. Tall, Dark and Deadly…yes that is definitely the way I like my romance novel men 🙂 However this trilogy has something for everyone. Shifter, Succubus and Demons…OH MY. Hot steamy scenes and plenty of suspense and action.
I freely admit that Cynthia was my gateway drug towards steamy romance. Prior to reading Cynthia I was primarily reading Nora Roberts. Those are now classified as “safe” romances. Hotter after Midnight was the first book that I bought that had a shirtless man on the cover. HA I remember being slightly weirded out buying it. Now I drop maybe 5 half naked men books at a time up on Borders counter 🙂 Ahhhh how I’ve grown. I don’t even bat an eye.
Today I read an array of romance books from black ops, paranormal and even erotica. I owe that to Cynthia Eden and Hotter After Midnight….
Check out Cynthia’s website and her entire book list…I haven’t been let down yet! She has some very exciting reads scheduled for 2011! She also did a interview with me not long ago..if you missed it you can read that HERE.
Have a great day everyone!
