She thought her fiancé was the perfect man—until he turned out to be the perfect killer…

Katherine Cole is running for her life, desperate to escape the Valentine Killer—so-called because he stabs his victims through the heart and leaves them holding a telltale single red rose. Still he tracks her to New Orleans and begins carving a bloody path to her door. But this time, Katherine refuses to run any farther. This time, she’ll do anything to stop the madman she once loved, even trust the sexy cop promising to keep her safe…

Detective Dane Black never lets his emotions interfere with his job, even as the Valentine Killer surfaces in New Orleans to stalk his prey. But when Dane agrees to protect the killer’s ex-fiancée, Katherine Cole, he can’t ignore the passion kindling between them. After a single unforgettable night binds them body and soul, Dane knows he won’t rest until Katherine is safe in his arms—and the Valentine Killer is dead. Dark and intensely sexy, this romantic suspense novel from USA Today bestselling author Cynthia Eden is sure to leave readers breathless.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Romantic thriller 13 juin 2013
Par Nathou VOIX VINE
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
This book is about a woman trying to cope with her troubled, traumatic past. She was once engaged with a man who turned out to be a lethal serial killer, murdering young women just for the fun of it. One day, she discovered the truth about her future husband and her life took up a new turn. A few years later, she lives in New Orleans, under a fake identity, when suddenly some murders are committed, with the same ritual as the Valentine killer's. Is he really back? What for? In the meantime, she falls in love with the cop in charge of the case, which turns this book into a romantic thriller, with hot scenes among other violent ones. Well, this book WAS a nice read, but I felt that the romantic scenes had been pasted. They looked a bit unlikely and broke off the pace of the novel too much. However, it was a good read, with real tension built around the killings and the identity of the killer.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Characters to "Die For" 4 février 2013
Par RVAbooklover - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit (De quoi s'agit-il?)
Let me say up front, I am a die hard Cynthia Eden fan. Be it her paranormals, her romantic suspense, her serial titles, I think I have read everything the woman has written, and I have loved all of it. When this came up on Vine for review, well, it was a no brainer choice for me!

Katherine Cole is living in New Orleans after escaping the publicity following her discovery of her (ex)fiance killing his latest victim. How creepy is that? The ex-fiance is on the run, and Katherine is in hiding. When an all too similar murder occurs in New Orleans, Katherine is done running. She is done with being a victim. Katherine seeks out the detective on the New Orleans murder, wanting to help the police finally capture Valentine, as she now refers to him, once and for all.

Dane Black is the homicide detective in charge of the gruesome murder. He isn't quite sure what to make of Katherine and her seemingly inside knowledge of the murder he is investigating.

What worked for me - Katherine - A strong heroine, she pushes past her fear, determined to stop Valentine and reclaim her life. She is exquisitely written. We see her inner turmoil, her resolve to not hide any longer. She has fire and a temper, even after all she has been through.

Dane - a good, solid cop who is cautious and believable. Even though he is attracted to Katherine, he proceeds with caution to eliminate her as a suspect. None of the "well, I want her so she must not be linked to the killer" sort of justification. He is solid and real, and his attraction to Katherine is heartfelt.

Michael or "Valentine" - Okay, yes, this may be a little weird, but I almost, for a minute, felt a bit sorry for Michael. Yes, he is a remorseless killer who would never stop on his own, but he was very well drawn. Very interesting psychological profile.

The story flowed well, and while I did figure out some of it about 2/3's of the way through, the component I figured out was revealed just a few pages later. The rest of it kept me guessing almost to the reveal. The plot was convoluted enough to keep me engaged, but in no way ridiculous or unbelievable. Ms. Eden writes creepy villians.

The romance portion of the story was well done, too. I could feel the attraction and affection between Katherine and Dane. This, to me, is where Ms. Eden shines. Even though the characters fell quickly and fell hard, it didn't feel at all contrived. The dialogue rang true. Just loved this couple.

What didn't work for me - Not a thing.

Bottom line - Time very well spent. If you like Die For Me, you should definitely check out Ms. Eden's Deadly series.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Very good novel, easy to read 26 janvier 2013
Par Darla Mcgranaghan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit (De quoi s'agit-il?)
Super easy to read, it only took me a day and I really enjoyed the story line. I was in the mood for a fast paced book about pretty likable characters, for the most part anyway. Katherine is in witness protection after being the person who found her fiance butchering young women in the basement of their home. Several years later she is now in New Orleans and making a new life for herself when the signature murders start around her. She goes to the police and the rest of the story is yours to find.

I really liked this novel and will be looking for more from this author.

Par Quiverbow - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Katelynn Crenshaw comes home early from work and finds her boyfriend and soon to be husband busily mutilating the body of a woman in their basement. Now having doubts about the upcoming wedding, she calls the police but her now ex-boyfriend, one Michael O'Rourke, escapes. It turns out this isn't the first time O'Rourke, now dubbed the Valentine Killer on account of him leaving red roses at the scene, has committed this particular crime. Thinking Crenshaw to be the next target, the police give her a new identity and she moves to New Orleans. Three years later however, her ex has found out her whereabouts and has started killing again.

The usual format in serial killer books then, but this is in the Montlake romance series, something of which I was unaware until it turned up. (Yes, I know I should have read the product details.) Not usually something I would read (Montlake that is), this did turn out to be no better than I imagined. Once I dismissed the romantic interludes between the now Katherine Cole and detective Dane Black, what was underneath was a run-of-the-mill crime/thriller involving a psycho continually referred to as Valentine, even though the FBI and local police know his name and what he looks like. Equally annoying is Eden's recurring use of a phrase, "A muscle jerked in his jaw". Along with repeating the expression, "I don't want any one else to die" ad nauseam, and plenty of single word sentences, it makes me wonder whether she had a word count to fulfil.

But what really grates is the portrayal of the New Orleans cops who come across as completely incompetent. Two are sent to keep an eye on Katherine, who enters her art studio on the main road. The lights don't go on so both uniforms go round the back of the building to see what's wrong. Sorry, but no. Being told they have less than an hour to save a potential victim, Black drags Cole into a room and they start kissing all over again. Really?

I don't know whether this is Eden's first foray into the genre, but this is a novel that you'll drive that well known horse and cart through in terms of working out what's going to happen and who is involved well before the finale. Now, having said that, that finale and its build up in the interrogation room is quite exciting; it's just what goes before that spoils it all. In fact, it's not very good at all.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Intense and Emotional 3 février 2013
Par K. M. Martin - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit (De quoi s'agit-il?)
Cynthia Eden has written an emotional and intense romantic suspense novel in DIE FOR ME. Katherine Cole can't ignore it when her ex-fiance--the Valentine Killer--surfaces in New Orleans. She has been relocated there by the US Marshals who now want to her relocate again. Katherine--never call her Kat--is sick of running and tired of the guilt she feels each time she hears about another victim.

She goes to the cops. Detective Dane Black is in charge of the latest case. Dane goes from thinking she might be a suspect herself or an accomplice to deciding that she is an innocent victim that he needs to protect with his life. The emotions are intense. But Katherine is no victim. She has strength and courage and is determined to stop the Valentine Killer before he kills again.

The Valentine Killer is obsessed with Katherine because she didn't let the abuse she suffered as a child damage her as he was damaged. He needs her because she makes him a better person but he needs to kill more. The story has lots of twists and turns. There are a series of grisly deaths that all connect with Katherine in some way. Eden kept me totally in the dark about who the Valentine Killer was.

Fans of romantic suspense novels will like both the mystery and the romance in this one. As for myself, I never want to get a bouquet of red roses...

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Best Romantic Suspense of 2013 13 février 2013
Par BBMoreB - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit (De quoi s'agit-il?)
If you enjoy reading books full of deception, mystery and romance then you will love this heart-stopping suspenseful novel by Cynthia Eden. As an enormous fan of both her paranormal and suspense novels it came as no surprise that I absolutely LOVED it.

The authors writing style is remarkable. Her superb ability to create another flawless story brimming with fear, anticipation and apprehension is remarkable. But MOST notable is that she then implemented a variety of pace, realistic dialogue, and vivid descriptions - ensuring that this dynamic suspense would keep you on the edge of your seat.

This author is known for her creation of miraculous characters - the attraction between the characters is well written...not going to go into much detail - don't want to spoil anything.
