Back Cover Blurb:

The Wolf Within by New York Times Bestselling author Cynthia Eden – FBI Special Agent Duncan McGuire spends his days–and his nights–tracking real-life monsters. After a brutal werewolf attack, Duncan begins to change…and soon he becomes one of the very beasts that he has hunted. Dr. Holly Young is supposed to help Duncan during his transition. It’s her job to keep him sane. But the growing desire between them could be a very dangerous thing…because when a vampire and a werewolf mate…their dark need may become an obsession that could destroy them both.

The Vampire Affair by New York Times Bestselling author Vivi Anna – Mak, an unconventional journalist, risks everything including her job to get the goods on billionaire businessman Jonathan Devane, a man who enthralled her for a single passionate kiss months prior, a man who makes her blood race, a man with dark secrets…

The Dark’s Mistress by Michele Hauf – Beguiled by the devil Himself, her only hope was the vampire who could not love her dark and tainted heart.

Blu and Creed’s daughter, Kambriel has come to Paris to ‘find herself’ and finds more than she bargained for when the man who seduces her with extravagant gifts and fine things reveals his true nature. Now she is desperate for freedom.

Johnny Santiago falls for the beautiful vampiress singing at Club l’Enfer, yet he doesn’t expect his rival to be the devil Himself. Can he rescue Kam from the dark prince before she loses her soul and forgets everything and everyone she has ever cared for?

A Taste for Passion by Patrice Michelle – Rana Sterling finally meets the man of her dreams and boy does he know how to push all the right buttons. Only, Mr. Tall, Dark, and Too-Good-to-Be-True turns out to be just that–he’s beyond her world.

After searching seventy years for his reincarnated fiancé, Lucian Trevane finally finds his mate in Rana, but with time working against him and a vengeful vampire determined to destroy the one ray of happiness he’s found, Lucian will have to call upon all his vampire skills and beyond in order to protect Rana and draw her fully into his world.

Captured by Erica Stevens – Captured, taken from her beloved family and woods, Aria’s biggest fear is not the imminent death facing her, but that she will be chosen as a blood slave for a member of the ruling vampire race. Aria’s world is turned upside down when the vampire prince Braith steps forward to claim her. Torn between her loyalties to the rebellion, and her growing love for her greatest enemy, Aria struggles to decide between everything she has ever known, and a love she never dreamed of finding.

Paris After Dark by Jordan Summers – NY homicide detective, Rachel Chang is on a forced leave in Paris grieving over the loss of her partner, when she comes upon a violent attack outside the walls of Cimetiere du Montparnasse. A simple domestic dispute quickly turns into something far more sinister, when Rachel ends up on the wrong side of some very sharp fangs.

Author Cynthia EdenCynthia Eden:

Cynthia Eden is a national best-selling author of paranormal romance and romantic suspense novels. Her books have received starred reviews from Publishers Weekly, and her novel, DEADLY FEAR, was named a RITA® finalist for best romantic suspense.

Cynthia is a southern girl who loves horror movies, chocolate, and happy endings. 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.

Cynthia’s foreign sales for her books include translations to Japan, Germany, Thailand, and Brazil.

(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.

  1. How much do people you know (or have known) in real life inspire your creation of the characters, their traits, personalities, actions, situations they find themselves in, etc.?

  2. Where do tou get your inspiration for what to write?

    When the idea come to put together boxed set, where does it come from and who decides which writers to approach about it?

  3. Have any of the stories in this set been released previously? Do any of you write short stories/novellas before you find an outlet for them?

  4. Unfortunately I won’t be able to attend but I’d like to wish you all a great time tonight. What a wonderful group of authors – it should be tons of fun :) .

    • Just keep on writing. I find just powering through helps. If what you write is crap, you can always fix it on a rewrite and sometimes the best stuff comes out of it and you end up traveling paths you never even thought of :)

  5. I’ve read only a couple of books from the authors here so I’m eager to check this anthology out. My question is one for all:

    Since these are romances featuring vampires (among other things), what to you is the most alluring part of the vampire as a romantic hero/heroine? Immortality? Blood lust? Etc.?
