For My Thoughts

Deadly Fear continues my new-to-me authors trend I seem to be following in 2010. This is my 1st ever Cynthia Eden book, but it certainly won’t be my last!

Deadly Fear pulls you right in from the opening prologue offering a glimpse of the chilling story of suspense to come.

Imagine your worst fears. Now imagine a deranged madman mercilessly torturing you and using your own fears against you. Scared yet? I know I was. Being scared of spiders, bees and lightning myself, just imagining being tortured to death by any one of these things had me shuddering.

Monica Davenport's a Special Agent for the FBI in the SSD (Serial Services Division). Her ability to get inside the head of the killers she investigates makes her an invaluable member of this special team. But she’s also the survivor of a horrific nightmare she experienced as a teenager and now that past may be coming back to taunt her.

Luke Dante is your typical alpha male and the newest member of the SSD team. Although new to the team, he‘s definitely a familiar face to Special Agent Davenport. In fact they are intimately acquainted after an unforgettable one night stand during their days together at the FBI training academy.  Monica is coolly detached at first when dealing with Luke, but given her past, it’s totally understandable. She’s reluctant to let anyone, let alone Luke into her heart, but their feelings for one another can’t be denied and when they do hook-up…whoa - the sex is hawt.

The FBI investigation and suspense plot of Deadly Fear doesn’t leave a lot of time to devote to romance for this duo. Together Monica and Luke must hunt down and find a sadistic killer dubbed The Watchman, who is torturing and killing people using their own fears against them. But this killer has a personal interest and his own agenda for Agent Davenport as he draws her into his deadly cat and mouse game.

Monica is by far the star of this show. She is one smart, savvy, take charge, kick-ass chick. She doesn’t need anyone to look after her and Luke is the perfect partner. He‘s patient, strong, understanding and totally supportive when Monica needs it most, plus she knows he’s always got her back.

The suspense in Deadly Fear was riveting and heart-pounding. Some of the scenes had me holding my breath and turning the pages as fast as I could read them. If I was a nail-biter, they would have been bitten to the quick. Eden writes an evil villain guaranteed to scare the bejeesus out of you.

Next up in this series is Deadly Heat and the excerpt provided promises to deliver another “barn burner” and I can’t wait for it’s release early in 2011.

Book Description


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?
