Broken
(Lost Series, Bk #1)
By Cynthia Eden


Blurb:
The first novel in New York Times bestselling author Cynthia Eden’s sizzling LOST series introduces the Last Option Search Team, an elite unit that must protect the only surviving victim of a serial killer.

Ex-SEAL and LOST founder Gabe Spencer is accustomed to the unusual in his job. But when knockout Eve Gray steps into his office, he’s rattled. For the mysterious woman is a dead ringer for the heiress thought to be the latest prey of the serial killer who goes by the name Lady Killer.
When Eve awoke in an Atlanta hospital, her past was a blank slate. Then she recognized her own face in the newspaper and vowed to learn the truth. Determined to confront the nightmares hidden in her mind, she never expects to find a partner in Gabe.
As Gabe and Eve work together, their explosive attraction becomes irresistible. Gabe knows that his desire for Eve is growing too strong, bordering on a dangerous obsession, but nothing pulls him away from her. And when another Eve lookalike disappears, Gabe vows to protect Eve at all costs. While Eve may have forgotten the killer in her past, it’s clear he hasn’t forgotten her.

 Excerpt

“Do you think I’m a con artist or a victim?”


“I think you’re a woman who has been hurt.” No denying that. “One of my team members, Wade Monroe, is contacting the Montgomery family. We’ll get DNA from them and find out—”


“If I’m Jessica.” There was hope in the words. Enough hope to break his heart.


Gabe nodded.


“When will we know?”


It would take a few days, even with the strings that he could pull. “As soon as possible,” he said, not wanting to give her a specific timetable.


“Thank you.” Then, just like that, she was across the car, giving him a tight hug. “Thank you.”


His arms wrapped around her, an instinctive response. She smelled faintly of flowers, a sweet scent that teased his nose, and her body was soft against his.


She tried to pull away, as if realizing what she’d just done.


For an instant he was tempted to hold her, to keep her close.


She’s a client. Focus.


He let her go, but his body ached.


“I … um … I should get inside.”


Yes, she should. While he was still clutching tight to his control. The control that said he shouldn’t push her. Shouldn’t want her so much. Not when she’d already been hurt so badly.


Her fingers reached for the door.


“Let me,” he said, voice rumbling, and Gabe climbed from the Jag. In seconds he was on the passenger side, opening her door for her. She rose, and her body brushed against his.


He stepped back. Distance. He seriously needed to put some distance between then. But even with some fast steps back, he could still smell that light and sexy scent that clung to her body. 


And he still wanted her.


“Your shrink asked me a lot of questions about you,” Eve told him as she stood temptingly close.


Gabe inclined his head. “I’m sure—”


“I think she wanted to know why I respond so much to you.”


Oh, hell, she’d just said … He cleared his throat even as part of his body surged in quick response to her. “It’s a tense situation, you’re—”


“You don’t look at me as if I’m a victim.”


He stopped talking.


“I mean, you know what I am, but you still look at me and seem to just see me … as a woman.”


“Others see you the same way.” Doc Tyler sure did. Bastard.


“It’s different with you,” she murmured as she stepped even closer to him. Her head had tilted back so she could look into his eyes. “I don’t know what I’ve felt for other men before.”


Why did the idea of others have his body knotting with tension?


“But I know that when I see you, I want.” A hushed confession. “I just … I needed to tell you that.”


And he needed to make his self-control a hell of a lot stronger. Her lips were just inches from his, and he wanted her mouth beneath his. Wanted her lips open. Needed to taste her.


“You’re the first man I’ve wanted since I opened my eyes in that hospital.”


He could actually feel his control splintering. Client. Cli—


“You probably don’t want me. I—I might not be your type.”


Now her gaze had fallen, as if in embarrassment. Had she really just asked if she was his type? 


She was probably every damn man’s type.


“But you make me feel normal again, so I had to tell you—”


His fingers curved under her chin. “Eve …”


Her smile was a little too big. Too bright. “I don’t think I can handle anything else right now, I’m …” She pulled away. Stumbled onto the sidewalk. “I just wanted to tell you how I felt,” she told him again.


Then she walked into the shelter, her steps hurried. As if she were running.


From him.


He stared after her. She wanted him.


And she was so beyond his reach.

Excerpt

Whatever she’d bottled up had come loose. Her appetite met her need, which should have scared him. But for the first time, he wanted her to need him. He could fill he up. She was starving for it.
And so was he.
She was sleeping, and he fell into her rhythm, inhaling when she did, exhaling also in tandem, feeling her soft sex crowning his thigh. He thought of all the lovely things he wanted to say to her, but knew he shouldn’t. He knew the speaking part would mess up what he now felt, something he rarely felt.
 
Happiness.
He tried to breathe without making a sound, hoping that this time together, which was as precious to him as the love making part, was prolonged for as long as possible. She was fire and ice. The salt and the caramel. She tucked inside the hard exterior of his soul and shivered, rested there under his protection.
He must have twitched or done something, because she startled and rose up quickly, rolling to the side and covering herself up. He could almost feel her heavy thoughts tossing about the room as he viewed her light pink spine glowing in the near moonlight as she sat on the edge of the bed away from him. An inch of her butt crack was in shadow, but the alabaster surface of her skin was flawless and made her look like a statue.
He inhaled without a sound, and let his index finger trace down the middle of her back, traveling over the ridges of her vertebra. She stiffened at first, then rolled her head to the side and killed him with the blue gaze that showed him she was still hungry.
“Come here, Megan,” he said, worried he’d been a little too loud.
She touched her shoulder with her ear in a shy move that belied her real feelings for him. He could see it in the coral shaded corners of her lips, how they quirked up at the ends.

Charlotte Baird was always very shy, but she was feisty when needed. After a viscous attack in a place that she should have been safe, now she is shy and scared. In fact, Charlotte has nick-named herself “Charlie-Mouse.” Because even the thought of having to interview for a new job can give Charlie hives, she has allowed herself to be taken advantage of at work. Charlie’s normal day at work could get even more interesting, as new CEO is coming, and he is known for taking no prisoners.

 

Gabriel Bishop was known as “the Bishop” on the rugby field and as one tough competitor. When an injury took Gabriel off the field, he walked into his second love—bringing companies back from the brink of ruin. The challenge of turning a shrinking business around and making it profitable gives Gabriel the same type of rush that racing down the rugby field did. Gabriel is once again stepping in to help an established and world renowned business to take its place back in the world of elite retail shopping.

 

To say that when Gabriel and Charlie first met it was all but a disaster might not be strong enough. But Gabriel has always used the assets he finds to their best advantage, and Charlotte is definitely an asset for the company. Now, if he can only find a way to bring out the feisty woman he sees in her eyes when they are together instead of the timid and scared mouse, they will be an unbeatable team. Charlie doesn’t care what Gabriel’s nickname might have been before, but she has the perfect one for him now—T-Rex. As the months go by, it’s a fun loving battle between a Charlie-Mouse vs. T-Rex. It’s one that is peppered with passion as respect turns into friendship and that turns into feelings that cannot be denied. When Charlie is once again threatened by a nightmare from her past, Gabriel is going to show just why he was so good on the rugby field, and this is one T-Rex that knows how to protect those he loves.

 

When a quiet and timid woman with a core of feistiness meets a man known to chew up and spit out incompetents, the outcome is a book you just can’t put down.  Charlotte and Gabriel have quite a journey that will encompass everything from a shaky first meeting to friendly workmates to a romance that rocks both of their worlds in Rock Hard. I just can’t tell you how many times I laughed and cheered both Charlie and Gabriel on while I watched their relationship progress. I also really loved the chapter titles that showed up, because then I couldn’t wait to see how the title was reflected in the chapter itself. But mostly, I felt for Gabriel as he helped Charlie regain the parts of herself that had been lost to violence. Charlie’s inner strength and determination will totally have you cheering for her to kick butt on her fears and grasp every element of the love between herself and Gabriel. Rock Hard is a wonderful story about beating the odds with an adorable couple that I just want to hug now that they have it all. Before reading about Gabriel and Charlie, I only wanted to see the rest of the band have their books, now I not only want that, but I also want to see Gabriel’s two single brothers find their happy endings too.
