I am in love with Cynthia Eden‘s paranormal romance books. She writes some awesome stories about shifters, vampires and angels. Her stories truly take you out of reality and entertain you from start to finish. Your heart rate will probably increase while reading her books because she includes a lot of action and suspense.
I love books that make you feel the emotions that are playing out in the story. I enjoy how she writes romance between her characters and that they don’t always do what you think they will. She likes to write characters that you think you can trust and turns them evil or take characters that you aren’t real sure of and make them into heroes. In this story Duncan is an FBI agent who is part of a secret Para Unit that hunts down lawbreaking paranormals who are out killing humans. While hunting down a werewolf, he is bitten and turns into a werewolf himself. Most of the other agents believe he won’t be able to control himself, including his boss, so they try to put him with the other paranormal prisoners until they feel he can trust him to control his beast side. This just starts a whole chain of events that takes the reader on quite the ride.
The story changes often and once you think they have solved one problem, another starts. While reading this I didn’t realize how much adrenaline was pumping through me until I was interrupted or had to stop. Because of the twists and turns that went on I wasn’t quite sure who to trust with the exception of Holly, the team doctor and object of Duncan’s affection. They were so good together.
I don’t want to give away too many spoilers so I’ll end this by stating that this book is intense. It is full of suspense as well as heartwarming romance and werewolf family drama (that’s always fun, right?). If you have read Cynthia’s other paranormal romance books I highly recommend this one. Even if you haven’t read any others, this is a great one to start with.

About the Book:
FBI Special Agent Duncan McGuire spends his days–and his nights–tracking real-life monsters. Most humans aren’t aware of the vampires and werewolves that walk among them. They don’t realize the danger that they face, but Duncan knows about the horror that waits in the darkness. He hunts the monsters, and he protects the innocent. Duncan just never expects to become a monster. But after a brutal werewolf attack, Duncan begins to change…and soon he will be 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 so that Duncan can continue working with the FBI’s Para Unit. But as Duncan’s beast grows stronger, the passion that she and Duncan have held carefully in check pushes to the surface. The desire that is raging between them could be a very dangerous thing…because Holly isn’t exactly human, not any longer.
As the monsters circle in, determined to take out all of the agents working at the Para Unit, Holly and Duncan will have to use their own supernatural strengths in order to survive. But as they give up more of their humanity and embrace the beasts within them both, they realize that the passion between them isn’t safe, it isn’t controllable, and their dark need may just be an obsession that could destroy them both.
