♦BLURB♦

New York Times bestselling author Cynthia Eden has killer instincts when it comes to breathtaking suspense! 

Once the town troublemaker, Sheriff Hayden Black became the teen hero who saved young Jillian West from a savage kidnapper. He never got over their brief affair. Now the ex-SEAL and the burned-out FBI agent have reunited in their Florida hometown and rediscovered their powerful attraction. But as they hunt down a long-forgotten killer, will they get a second chance at happiness? When a series of accidents begins to plague Jill, Hayden won’t let her fall victim again. There’s too much history between them…and too much desire.

 

♦4.5-STAR REVIEW♦

ABDUCTION is a second-chance romance filled with suspense and pent-up desire. Hayden and Jillian had a whirlwind of a romance that sparked in their teens but the flame was put out too soon. Now, years later, Jillian is back to find some answers into her own cold case and, unexpectedly, the reason for the premature end of hers and Hayden’s relationship.

Eden is fantastic at romantic suspense. I love her twisting stories and cast of could-be suspects. This story had the wonderful addition of a love that ended too soon and the tumultuous feelings still attached to each character. The sexual tension and cloud of emotion hung over them, building along with the suspense in perfect sync. The story kept me glued to the pages and searching for answers at every turn. Eden crafted each character with the right amount of vulnerability and strength–to both be strong in their own ways, but in need of someone to share that with. Sexy and bold, ABDUCTION had the pull of an unputdownable story with its rising suspense and angst-filled romance. I can’t wait for more in the Killer Instinct series and world!

12 Masters. Infinite fantasies. Welcome to Blasphemy…

He wants to dominate her senses—and her heart…

Quinton Ross has always been a thrill-seeker—so it’s no surprise that he’s drawn to extremes in the bedroom and at his BDSM club, Blasphemy, where he creates sense-depriving scenarios that blow submissives’ minds. Now if he could just find one who needs the rush as much as him…

When an accident leaves Cassia Locke with a paralyzing fear of the dark, she’ll try anything to get help. Ready to fight, she knows just who to ask for help—the hard-bodied, funny-as-hell Dom she’d always crushed on—and once stood up.

Quinton is shocked and a little leery to see Cassia, but he can’t pass up the chance to dominate the alluring little sub this time. Introducing her to sensory deprivation becomes his new favorite obsession, and watching her fight fear is its own thrill. But when doubt threatens to send her running again, Quinton must find a way to master her senses—and her heart.

 

♦3.5-STAR REVIEW♦

Mastering Her Senses further opens the world of Blasphemy to readers. There’s a sort of inspiring feel to this series mainly because, so far, each novel has focused on helping a heroine overcome something either traumatic or dire and provides her with the tools to see her own strength. This is no different in this second installment.

Cassia and Quinton have a beneficial dynamic with he the thrill seeker and she the one confined by senses. What I enjoy most of Kaye’s portrayal of the Dom/sub relationship is that while Quinton may be the Dom in the relationship, he gains his satisfaction from when she’s empowered and only then. I may not live in the lifestyle, but from what I’ve read and learned, that point hits true in comparison. He’s selfless and serving, regardless of being in a scene or not. They way he cared will pull in any reader.

My one concession is that I never really felt their spark. I couldn’t dive beneath the surface and feel them and their flame. Because of that, the belly tingles weren’t unleashed and that was truly sad for me. I think I’ll be in the minority in this and I figure it was just my headspace during the time of reading–but please experience it for yourself.

It’s truly a beautiful story about overcoming obstacles and the ultimate bond between two people in the BDSM world. It was hot, sensual, and erotic; built on trust and self discovery. I’m greatly looking forward to the next installment of this enticing series and what further there is to explore.
