She's armed with a new attitude and a kick-ass wardrobe...

By age twenty-eight, art historian Jade Fitzgerald has had a marriage from hell and an equally nasty divorce, worked hard to control her weight and her arrhythmia. The last thing she needs is another man messing with her head or shooting her heartbeat off course. That is exactly what she gets when an aloof and mysterious stranger storms into her life.

He's cynical and doesn’t take crap from anyone...

Former investigative reporter Vince Knight is on a quest to recover a priceless, ancient Mayan artifact, which he believes Jade’s mother stole. He’s skilled at gathering information while remaining emotionally detached, until he meets Jade. The voluptuous woman stirs in him a hunger he hasn’t felt in a long time and a protectiveness he can’t explain.

Until, an insane man decides to add Jade to his collection of beautiful and rare things...

Neither Vince nor Jade expects passion to flare so fast or danger to dodge their footsteps. To defeat a ruthless art collector with a twisted agenda, Jade and Vince must learn to trust each other and embrace their growing feelings.

Meet the Author

I grew up reading Nancy Drew and Hardy boys mysteries, hence Stratemeyer influence, before I graduated to Mills & Boons (starting with Janet Daily's Shutter the Sky) and the rest is history.I enjoy good love stories, tingly mysteries and wondrous adventures. When I finished my college and decided to be a stay-at-home mother, I devoured books like they were going out of production, until reading just wasn't enough. So I started to write.I've written picture books, contemporary and romantic suspense, biracial/multicultural books, and finally YA fantasy. Awakened (fall 2010) is the first book in The Guardian Legacy series. Book 2, Betrayed, will be out in the fall 2011. I'm now publishing adult romance in e-format, starting with Slow Burn (May 2011).When I'm not writing, I do things with my family, five children or my darling husband of 18 years. I live in a picturesque valley in Utah, the setting for my series

    A must read !! Depth- passion suspense and romance !!

    Well I'm a cover love Kinda girl and this cover defiantly sends forth what's inside the cover ** smokin**

    Mine Until Dawn is a suspenseful romance filled with curve balls, twists and turns and a rollercoaster ride Im sure that you will cling to the entire ride.

    Passion between the characters Vince and Jade will not only give you Goosebumps, but having you wandering where you might find a hotty like Vince. The steamy scenes will not only send your toes curling, but have you tingling in all the right places in anticipation and even chewing your bottom lip waiting for Vince and Jade to just get it on !!! Ednah has created undeniable electricity and chemistry between the main characters that does not overtake the storyline, but adds that little added bit of excitement - to the readers benefit.

    A riveting storyline that is well paced, chapters that flow smoothly with the storyline, no sudden breaks in the story, just a full on ride straight ahead.

    Vincent will not only ruffle your tail feathers, but have you oggling the cover and maybe even a tinge of Jealously towards Jade... ** he surely is one hotty ** swoon !!! lol.

    Jade is a slightly tortured soul but ready to move on with life, I enjoyed her character, kind and loving and very strong willed.

    Mine Until Dawn is filled with a great cast of characters I'm sure that will not only swoon over but have you wanting to kung fu just to help out! Suspenseful scenes that will have you gasping, other scenes you will be shaking in trepidation and sexy scenes that will have you reading briskly ** wink **

    Ednah portrays her characters with depth and emotion letting the reader know exactly what's happening. The dialogue was brusque, clear cut and the suspense and action titillating, the romance sweltering. An ending I'm sure will keep the reader happy and a great second addition to The Fitzgerald Family series. I eagerly await book 3 KISS ME CRAZY!!!!

    Very Good

    This book was more than enjoyable. I was hooked line and sinker from the first page. The story was intriguing, combine mystery with a bit of history, and I was a goner. It was a ton of fun trying to guess who the bad guys were (at least I love that part in a book :P )
    Vince Knight is man on a mission to solve who stole a missing artifact. From the clues he has, that brings him to Jade Fitzgerald.
    The characters had quite an attraction to each other from the start. They knew each other in high school and their families are friends. Sir Knight definitely lives up to his name. I found myself routing for him during this story! I know the line, "Kick their ass!", jumped in my head a few times. :) Jade, quite resourceful, never left her man. She stood in the middle of the action and refused to become a wall flower. She could kick butt and keep up. My kind of woman.
    Vince and Jade never have a dull moment. Family secrets come to light, bad men chasing them, murders popping up all over town, blazing passion and so much more! This book is quite appealing to anyone who likes a mystery, sizzling romance, a hero that doesn't quit and a heroine who stands by her man. I cant wait to read more!
    Question for Edna: Please tell me your coming out with more?! Id love to read Faith's and Eddie's stories. :)

    Review Of Mine Until Dawn By E.B. Walters

    I finished Mine Until Dawn in a 24 hour period. I have never finished a 400 page book before in 1 day. That speaks to the incredible writing skills that Ms Walters has. I started the book at around 11 PM Friday and I literally went to bed Saturday morning at 7 AM and got up at 11 AM and went right back to reading. I finished around 11 PM Saturday night. Jade and Vince had me transfixed to my computer reading. It was the best money and time I have ever spent with a book. Just when I think Ms. Walters can't surprise me she knocks me for a loop. I liked the fact that Jade gave as good as she got. I also enjoyed Vince's vulnerable side which he tries like hell to hide. They first meet at Jade's office were Vince ends up accusing (although in not so many words) Jade's mother of stealing something at a party she had gone to recently. Jade, like a devoted daughter, is outraged at what Vince has to say about her mother. As always, Ms. Walters throws us curve ball after curve ball to keep us on our toes. There is NEVER a dull moment in this book. I especially loved a particular scene involving Jade, her cousins Faith and Ashley (from Slow Burn), and Vince. I don't want to give it away because it is a very good scene but lets just say there is a very drunk Ashley and a very sexy Vince shedding his clothing. Jade and Vince are such a perfect couple that you start rooting for them from the very beginning. Every woman wants to prove to everyone else that they can handle anything that comes their way and every guy wants to prove that they don't need anyone or anything but with Jade and Vince you realize maybe just maybe it is just nice to be something to someone and to hell with everyone else. On a scale from 1-10 I give Mine Until Dawn 10. I really think I might like Mine Until Dawn better than Slow Burn and I really LOVED Slow Burn. I so can't wait for Kiss Me Crazy (The Fitzgerald Family Series Book #3). I am a fan of Ms. Walters for life whether it be her adult books or her YA books. Thank you for nurturing my LOVE of reading.

    Another Great Read by E.B. Walters

    The second novel in the Fitzgerald Family series, this one is just as great as the first. The reader will love how close and protective the Fitzgerald family members are of their kin. This novel isn't some cheesy love story, the main topic isn't necessarily romance. This book contains mystery, action, drama, romance, and even a little horror. Readers who prefer different types of genres will still enjoy this novel. The reader will pick up new vocabulary and facts concerning kung fu and China, specifically concerning artifacts.
    Jade is a strong, female character; female readers should enjoy this facet of Jade's character, there are not many strong-willed females in stories where romance is intertwined with the plot. Jade is fun to read about, the reader will feel as if he/she knows Jade very well by the end of the novel. Vince is a bit of an enigma; he makes for a great "hero". He is handsome, aloof, and persistent. Jade and Vince really pull the story together. The secondary characters all have various personalities, from the humorous to the scary to the cheerful; the reader will have fun reading about them as well.
    The novel ends well, there are no cliff-hangers or disappointing last minute adjustments. The reader will look forward to the next book in this series.

    Can Fitzgeralds get any hotter??? You bet they can!!

    "Mine Until Dawn" is book two in the Fitzgerald series. The Fitzgerald family is a close knit group with fierce love and devotion for each other. Jade Fitzgerald has rebuilt her life. After growing up with a health condition and a failed marriage under her belt, she has chosen to take control of her life. Jade believes her life is complete. She doesn't really give love a second thought. Not dismissing it completely, just not allowing it to take control of her life. When she thinks she is being honest with herself she believes she doesn't need it. Vince Knight is a man with a past. He has grown past his wild ways and has put his past behind him. A man that has seen much in life, probably more like too much. Reluctantly persuaded into helping someone from his past, he is reacquainted with Jade, a past school mate. Sparks fly from the beginning, much to Vince's frustration. Jade and Vince are thrown together to discover the location of a stolen artifact. Vince wants to return it to his family and Jade want to clear her mother. Circumstances don't give these two a break and the action is nonstop. Passion between these two is instantaneous. Unfortunately, neither wants a long term relationship. Through their journey together they discover many new things about themselves and each other. Their love story is well developed and believable. One great thing about this book is that you are introduced more extensively to the other Fitzgerald members. Ms. Walters in no way has clued us into who the next "victim" of love will be. They are all such wonderful characters that you can't help want more of them. I'm trying to come up with the right words to explain my feelings about this story. While "Mine Until Dawn" carried much of the same humor, sex appeal, whimsical dialogue as "Slow Burn", it was not as strong. This story kept a steady pace. Keeping you involved with the plot the whole way. I felt like I didn't want to put it down, but I was able to "Mine Until Dawn" is an excellent easy read. The book is well laid out and written. You can keep up with it even if you get interrupted. It's a steady read with steamy sex, suspenseful action and intriguing mystery. A perfect summer read that will consume your imagination and make you want more of the Fitzgerald's family.

    put this on your TBR pile at the very top!

    After RWA in New York this year a lot of the authors that have friended me on Facebook started adding other authors that they had met. I added a bunch from their recommendations. That's how I came upon this book from Ednah Walters. She was asking others to review it at various sites. "Mine Until Dawn' I saw the title and thought hmm maybe a vampire book as they run the earth til dawn. ok i was wrong on that one. Started reading it and it seemed like a Harlequin romance novel but that didn't look right with number of pages nor was it a normal romance novel. It is so much more than that. Starts out as a love story with complications. Then the other half steps to the plate and it's no more a love story but a mystery. The book takes turns from each of their point of views to move the story along. The mystery part really get intense for good reasons as the remance escalates further along. This is an excellent book that more than pays attention to detail. It could be made into a movie very easily as everything is laid out in black and white on the pages. I felt I was right there along with them and others traveling to different places I've never been to. I learned a lot also about the chinese artifacts and kung fu techniques. The scenery from the different areas seems like really great places to visit. The book does not come on super strong with the characters nor the plot. It's very easy going and holds your interest til the end. I really liked the fact that there are a handful of different people but there is no chaos with introducing them into the storyline. You are never confused as to who is who. Loved reading about the parties as these are things I've never experienced. After reading this book I am now on the prowl to get other books by Ednah. Thanks and keep on writing. I rate this book a 5 out of 5. Julie
