Today we welcome the fabulous Cynthia Eden to the Naughty Chicks clubhouse. Cynthia isn't just a terrific author, but those of us who have met her in person know she is a real sweetheart too.
Thanks so much to the Naughty Chicks for inviting me over today! It’s great to be here…and to be talking about monsters.
You see, I think monsters are hot. That may sound wrong, but it’s true. I love wolf shifters. Sure, they can get a bit furry, but they’re tough, they’re wild, they’re animalistic…and sexy.
And vamps…oh, yeah, they have a bit of a neck fetish, but they’re eternally young, eternally strong, and they have that whole I-Can-Mesmerize-You-With-My-Eyes thing happening. Sensual!!
Lately, another monster hero is on the rise in paranormal romances…the demon hero. Come on, can you get a better bad boy? I don’t know if it gets much badder than a demon.
I love writing and reading about these paranormal characters. They’re more than men. They’re stronger, more dangerous, and often (to me!) hotter. Come on…don’t you love the idea of an all-powerful vamp hero being at your beck and call? Or isn’t the idea of having a sexy shifter to yourself pretty tempting?
I’ve had a crush on monsters for years. I realized I had a problem early on. When I saw my first vamp movie, I didn’t root for the “hero”—no, I wanted my vamp to get his girl and to live (eternally) happily ever after. Didn’t happen in that movie, unfortunately, but these days, I make sure I always give my supernaturals their happy endings. After all, those hot monsters need love, too!
So I say bring on those monsters!!
But how do you feel about the monsters? Love ‘em? Have a particular favorite? Leave me a comment and let me know what you think. One commenter will win a copy of I’LL BE SLAYING YOU, my very soon-to-be released (on June 29) paranormal romance. And, yes, in I’LL BE SLAYING YOU, a hot monster will get a happy ending.
Award-winning author Cynthia Eden writes paranormal romances and romantic suspense novels. She is currently very busy writing her stories for Grand Central Publishing and Kensington Brava.
She has always wanted to write (don’t most authors say that?), and particularly enjoys creating stories about monsters–vampires, werewolves, and even the real-life monsters that populate her romantic suspense stories.
(Back in the day…) Cynthia graduated summa cum laude from the University of South Alabama where she studied Sociology (because people interest her) and Communication (because she likes to write about said people). Cynthia has worked as a college admissions counselor, a teacher, and as an editor. But now, Cynthia is thrilled to be spending her days making up stories.
***Update - winner drawn for Cynthia's contest is MBreakfield. Congratulations!
