Leagh's Review: Deadly Series by Cynthia Eden

THE DEADLY SERIES by Cynthia Eden is probably the best Romantic Suspense series I have ever read. I am a long time follower of Cynthia Eden and her paranormals so when she released her first RS novel, I had to try it out. Oh my...I was not disappointed. If there is one person who knows how to write a scary villain, it is Cynthia. Read on for more information about the series and my reviews of them.

~*~   Book 1 ~*~

FBI Special Agent Monica Davenport has made a career out of profiling serial killers. But getting inside the twisted minds of the cruel and the sadistic has taken its toll: She’s walled herself off from the world. Yet Monica can’t ignore fellow agent Luke Dante, the only man who ever broke through her defenses.
Luke has the unique ability to put victims at ease…professionally, he and Monica made a perfect team. Now they’re reunited to catch a murderer who uses his victims’ deepest, darkest fears for sport – but their investigative skills aren’t enough. Luke and Monica will have to face the secrets from their past, the ones that terrify them the most, if they are to have a future together.
But can they catch a killer whose weapon is…DEADLY FEAR?

Ms Eden really shows she knows how to write a romantic suspense in this novel. The characters have real problems and the villian's reason for what they do makes sense. Monica and Luke have chemistry that burns up the pages while the story keeps you on the edge of your seat. I am always trying to figure out who the villian is and this one kept me guessing the whole way through. I honestly couldn't put this one down and have recommended it to everyone I know. This story is truly an amazing read that has passion, emotion, suspense, and action all packed into one book. When I finished it I couldn't wait to get my hands on Deadly Heat, #2 in the series. If you read this one I guarantee you will get the ride of a lifetime.

I will, without a doubt, serve this one with...

~*~ Book 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 . . .

After I read "Deadly Fear" I couldn't wait to read "Deadly Heat." So lets just say I was not disappointed. Ms Eden definitely knows what she is doing with romantic suspense. The book is about a special agent named Kenton and a firefighter named Lora. Kenton is called into Lora's town to investigate a series of deadly fires that Lora has been working. She expects that the fires are part of a serial killers game, a game that killed her lover 6 months ago. Lora is furious and wants revenge and she knows the agency Kenton works for can find the arsonist and give the victims justice. This book contains an amazing love story that is sweet and hot all at the same time, a suspenseful plot that keeps you guessing the whole way through, and twists and turns that you would never expect. I would definitely recommend this series to anyone interested in reading a very well written, amazing romantic suspense novel.

~*~ Book 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 . . .

This third installment to Cynthia Eden's Deadly Series is just as amazing as the first two. You meet Samantha in the first book when she is rescued from a terrible situation that almost costed her her life. She is almost healed now and decides to try to live a little. In comes Max, a man she meets one night and experiences a night of passion with. But one night isn't enough for Max and when they meet up again, he is determined to not let her get away again.This book is full of emotional, passionate, and exciting twists and turns that keep you sucked in the whole way through. The chemistry between Max and Sam is explosive. Once again Ms Eden has managed to create a plot line that keeps you on the edge of your seat until the last pages. I would highly recommend starting at the beginning of this journey in DEADLY FEAR but don't think it is necessary for this to be an amazing read.
