It’s been a little while since we had a chance to chat with her and we are excited to know more about her new book TAKEN! This is a romantic suspense and the blurb definitely caught our interest. Please help us welcome Cynthia Eden to the blog today.
Welcome back to Under the Covers, Cynthia! For readers who may be new to the LOST series, can you tell us a little about it?
Thank you so much for having me back! It’s a pleasure to be here! As for my series…LOST stands for “Last Option Search Team”—the heroes and heroines in this book work for a private search organization. When families have given up hope of ever finding their loved ones, they turn to LOST for help.
TAKEN is book five in the series and it features a survivor in the form on Bailey Jones. What is your favorite thing about Bailey’s character?
I love that Bailey is so resilient! She has been through hell, but she is determined to reclaim her life. She’s a survivor straight to her core.
Can you tell us a little bit more about the LOST agent, Asher?
Asher is one of my darker characters. He has a very painful and twisted past, and because of it, he thinks that he will always be a bit tainted. When he meets Bailey, he knows that he isn’t good enough for someone like her, but Asher can’t let her go.
What is your favorite thing about writing Romantic Suspense? What do you find most challenging about writing it?
I love writing the twists and turns in romantic suspense stories. Keeping the danger and adrenaline flowing always thrill me. The most challenging aspect? It’s balancing the romance and the suspense. I always try to get a 50/50 divide going for my readers.
Do you have any favorite Romantic Suspense authors that you love to read in your spare time?
So many! I adore Jayne Ann Krentz, Rebecca Zanetti, and Shannon McKenna.
What are you currently working on?
Right now, I am working on a brand new romantic suspense series—it’s about agents who truly have “Killer Instincts” when it comes to understanding criminals.

HE SWORE TO PROTECT HER . . .
Bailey Jones somehow survived her harrowing abduction by the infamous Death Angel. But while her physical scars have healed, she can’t stop wondering about a woman she helped to escape, who simply disappeared. When LOST agent Asher Young is assigned to her case, Bailey instantly feels an attraction to the intense ex-SEAL who seems to be carrying dark secrets of his own.
BUT KEEPING HIS PROMISE . . .
Asher can’t afford to let his growing feelings for Bailey distract him from his job. Only she can soothe his horrific nightmares, but the last thing he wants is for the demons from his past to ever hurt her. Bailey has gotten past his guard, and the emotions he feels for her—they’re as dark and dangerous as the past he doesn’t want to face.
COULD COST BOTH THEIR LIVES
When corpses begin surfacing—all marked with the same tattoo depicting the Death Angel’s calling card—Asher must race to stop a twisted killer who wants nothing more than to claim his next prize: Bailey . . .
