The Girl Who Loves Monsters: Cynthia Eden

I’m thrilled to have a wonderful guest today: Cynthia Eden. She’s an amazing writer and an even better friend. She’s so much fun, she should be illegal in at least 39 states. Her books are always a good read and I think she likes Halloween almost as much as I do.  ALMOST

Thanks for coming by Cynthia.  AND for sharing this wicked cool cover of your latest book with us.


Haunting Time 

Happy Halloween, everyone!  Well, okay, *almost* Halloween.  I am so counting down the days until we get to our spookiest night of the year. I love the thrills and chills that come with the approach of Halloween.  Since I am a paranormal romance junkie, it seems like Halloween was made just for folks like me. Folks who enjoy a good scare. Folks who like to imagine there is more to this world than meets the eye.

Folks who like a bit of a monster in their men. 😉

When I write and read romances, I like to have heroes with supernatural powers. Guys who can howl at the moon or guys who get stronger when they have a nice bit of blood to drink.  Sure, maybe these fellows are on the “darker” side with their dangerous and deadly selves, but to me, that’s just fun.

I always root for the supernatural heroes.  I want them to save the day, get the girl, and still have time to howl at the moon.  Hey, all in a day’s work, right?  When I think of some of my favorite supernatural heroes, these guys spring to mind…

Mick St. Johnfrom Moonlight.  (Why, oh, why was that show canceled?)

Dracula from…um, any Dracula movie.  (Yes, I always root for Dracula.)

Michael from the Underworld movies. (Yay for vampire/werewolf hybrids!)

Hellboy from Hellboy (Because who says you can’t be a giant, red devil and be sexy? Huh, who?)

And, of course (always!) Spike from Buffy. 

Who are your favorite supernatural heroes?  Please share! One random commenter will win a Cynthia Eden book of his/her choice.  Thanks for checking out my post! (And thanks so much to my lovely hostess for having me over.)

When an angel falls, all hell breaks loose…



  1. Oooh…I love the cover! I will have to read this when it comes out. My favorite supernatural hero? I love Van Helsing, or shall I say I love Hugh Jackman playing Van Helsing!

    Have a great day.


    • Lisa, Tanya, Mranda, Chris, Jahairia- some great choices there!

    • So glad you like the cover, Lisa! Oh, and I am such a Van Helsing fan, too!

    • love me some supernatural!! My love affair for the supernatural started in High School when I discovered twilight and has continued since. I do love jacob but edward will always hold a special place in my heart. I have no idea why Moonlight was canceled I loved that show Mick St. John is sizzling he definitely had the potential to over take edward if the show had stayed on. I love the buffy shows and watch them any time i get. i have even read them! I alway rute for dracula because he was my first vamp love 😉 My first werwolf love was derick form kelly armstrong but the best supernatural writer that make the best vampire, werewolves, and deamons is CYNTHIA EDEN my first and formost FAVORITE AND ANINSPIRING AUTHOR!

      • Hi, Alexis!! Can I just say…thank you!!! You are so awesome. 🙂 I think Mick would have totally ruled if he’d stayed on. Oh, how I miss him!

  2. My favorite is Lestat from Queen of the Damned by Anne Rice.

  3. I love me some supernatural!! My love affair for the supernatural happened in High School when I discovered Buffy and has continued since. I do love Angel but Spike will always hold a special place in my heart 🙂 I have NO idea why Moonlight was canceled I loved that show Mick St. John is sizzling he definitely had the potential to over take Spike if the show had stayed on. I never thought I’d say this but I’m warming up to Damen from the Vampire Diaries I just love a bad boy who attempts to reform. Monsters Rock!!

    • Miranda, Spike is tops in my heart too (I loved Angel…until Spike came along!). I haven’t watched the Vampire Dairies yet, but now you have me wanting to tune in!

  4. I have a few heroes that I love. Batman and Superman(especially the new one-Henry Cavil). I also love Bones from Jeaniene Frost’s Night Huntress Series, Cain from Bound in Darkness, and Edward from Twilight. There are many others but those are some of my favorites. Bound in Darkness is the first book I have read by Cynthia, but will not be my last. I would love to check out the other books of this series, and do see that she has some other books out.
    Thanks for the giveaway and the chance to win.

    • Hi, Chris! I’m so glad you were able to read Bound In Darkness–I had a great time writing that story! Thanks for entering the giveaway!

  5. favorites supernatural heroes have to be:

    1. Angel from Buffy, why because he is a vamp with a soul =)
    2. Lucian from underworld
    3. Louis from Interview with a vampire, what can I say its Brad Pitt!

    and finally a non-hero that could have turned good maybe someday

    Sylar from heroes, I know he was the bad guy but he was just misunderstood……

    • I am so glad you mentioned Sylar!! I felt the same way about him!

  6. Hey Cynthia! Hey Jillian! 😀

    I hope your both having a lovely day.
    My favorite supernatural heroes would have to be: (sorry but your getting a list lol )

    – Ric Van Holtz from BIG BAD BEAST by Shelly Laurenston because he just reminds me of his cousin, Van, and how he never gives up on winning Dee Ann Smith’s affection and love. Plus it’s funny when he goes OCD in the kitchen xD

    – Sarah Dearly from Immortality Bites by Michelle Rowen because no matter what she always bounces back and is always trying to prove that she can be a vampire with a normal life and that she can have a relationship with Thierry. Plus it’s a really funny book 🙂

    – Lucas Simone from Never Cry Wolf by Cynthia Eden because he is such a strong man and he is what I think is a real man, someone tough and strong and just hot! It was great to see how he and his brother where getting on after what happened with Maya and the born master and everything.

    They are my top 3 favourite supernatural heroes and I do hope what I have written is okay.


    Michelle Louise Pratley
    Scottish Borders, Scotland.

      • Oh your welcome 😀

    • LOL, I love your list Michelle! And thank you for including Lucas!!

  7. I love all the supernatural hunks you mentioned. (why was Moonlight cancelled?ugh)
    I would add Eric and Alcede from Tue Blood, yumm!

    • Tamara, Khelsey, Leagh and Alaina – these are all yummy guys. I’ve been swooning all day over the different choices.

    • Gah!!! How did I forget Eric and Alcide? I LOVE them!

  8. Richard from Anita Blake series!

    • I haven’t read that series, Khelsey–I’ll have to check it out! Thanks for coming by!

  9. Hey Ladies,

    I would have to say that I love your Night Watch Heroines and Heroes and I also am a big fan of Bones from Jeaniene Frost’s Night Huntress

    • Oh, Bones…I only hear good things about him! (And I am so glad you love the Night Watch peeps–thank you!)

  10. ohh thats a toughie.. i loved Angel (well basically anything David Boreanez.).. Ohhh Shelly Laurenston! yumm.. Orlando Blooms legolas.. Luke Evans (he was in Clash of the TItans and in the new one Immortals)
    and Sam Worthington (clash of the titans).. ohhh and the new guy who plays Thor.. Yumm!

    • Legolas…sigh. I actually gave one of my friends a life-size cut-out of Legolas for Christmas one year. Loved Orlando Bloom as that character.

      • ..that is so awesome! i wish i had a life sized cut out.. lol

      • Yeah. Me too.

  11. Spike is one of my favorites, I’ve always liked him more than Angel. Angel is such a whiner, lol.

  12. I LOVED Mick St. John. Still do. I have the DVD’s of Moonlight and just watched an episode last night. Sigh.

    That cover for Angel of Darkness is hot, Cynthia. I love the light shining down on him through the clouds. Very evocative.

  13. Niol Lapen from Cynthia Eden’s Midnight’s master :), hmm tv wise I’d have say Ian Somerhalder (damon salvatore) from the Vampire diaries. Lucian from underworld, and I love Human Torch (Johnny Storm), Chris Evans. I love them all but they top my list.

    Love the cover to your new book can’t wait for it to come out!!!

    • I love Niol, too. He’s my fav of Cynthia’s!

    • Aw, thank you, Savannah! (And Niol thanks you, too!). Like you, I’m also a huge human torch fan. That guy is just hot! 🙂

      Thank you!!

  14. You had me at “Michael”! I am also partial to Stuart Townsend as LeStat in Queen of the Damned, Brad Pitt as Louis in Interview With a Vampire, Gary Oldman in Bram Stoker’s Dracula. I haven’t really watched True Blood, or Vampire Diaries but I’ve watched pretty much every vampire or werewolf movie I can get my hands on.

    • LOL, Michael rocks! And, Lora, I came late to True Blood (picked up in season 3), but I am now totally addicted.

  15. Looking forward to Angel of Darkness! I’m going with Angel from Buffy, pretty much because he’s just HOT!

    • He is!!! But I think Spike is hotter–hey, we can have a Spike vs. Angel battle!

  16. Jillian, thank you so much for having me over today!!

  17. First I have to say I LOVE Spike. Angel was way too angsty, but if supernatural extends to the wizarding world I have to put my vote in for my favorite Gingers The Weasleys. specifically Ron and Fred & George. Fun post and comments

    • I knew you’d pick those twins. Lol

      • Those Weasley boys are fun!

  18. Love Spike more than Angel actually… Spike is just so much funnier… and I love his sarcasm and bad boy manners. 🙂

    Michael from Underworld is hot too… So is Eric from True Blood…

    • I thought Spike was so funny, too! Love a bad guy with good humor. 🙂

    • May and Alexis -thanks for sharing your choices. Good ones

  19. Jude from Eternal Hunter, he was my first Cynthia Eden book; Dmitri from Archangel’s Blade, Nalini Singh, what a bad boy.

    • Jude is awesome!! Good choice

    • Hi, Diane! Thank you for including Jude! 🙂

  20. I’m a Spike girl. LOVE him!

  21. My personal pics would be – t.v. – Sam & Dean Winchester from Supernatural! I am also a HUGE fan of Mick St. John! He may not be a vamp anymore, but at least we can still see him on tv. 😉
    And Jace Vaughn – Bound By Blood by Cynthia, he is such an Alpha Wolf!

    • Oh, Tina, I am a huge Dean fangirl. Can’t get enough of those brothers! I am also very glad to hear that you enjoyed Jace–thank you!
