In this gripping new series by New York Times bestselling author Cynthia Eden, a disgraced FBI profiler must save her reputation by stopping a sadistic killer she knows all too well

Former FBI agent Samantha Dark was one of the most respected profilers in the bureau, an expert on the twisted minds and dark hearts of the most depraved criminals. But when her own former lover turned out to be the serial killer she was hunting, Samantha's career was destroyed. Blamed for the FBI's failure on the complex case, Samantha left Washington, DC, for the quiet anonymity of Alabama.

Now an all-too-familiar killer is hunting once again. She can catch the cunning assassin, but that means putting her trust in her former partner, Blake Gamble. Ex-military, Blake is tough, protective, precise. With her entire life on the brink, she knows he wants her back in the FBI…and possibly more.

But someone else wants her, too. A threat is waiting in the dark, a killer who has set his sights on the ultimate trophy victim—Samantha.

This is my first book from Cynthia Eden. It definitely won't be my last! I love Samantha Dark and Blake Gamble. After Samantha's world was destroyed when she found out her best friend and former lover was the serial killer she had been looking for, she left the FBI and went home. After four months, her former partner shows up asking for her help (and maybe more) because it seems the serial killer is at it again. Sam's world is again turned upside down. Can she trust Blake? This book is full of twists and turns and romance. I absolutely love the way Ms. Eden was able to pull me into her world and keep me there. I can't wait to read the next book.

THRILLING!!! AFTER THE DARK is a thrilling, intense ride from start to finish, with the perfect blend of suspense and romance. Samantha Dark, an FBI profiler is devastated when she is forced to leave the FBI. She and her former partner, Blake Gamble worked well together. They trusted each other, had each other's backs and tried to ignore the sizzling chemistry between them. Now that Samantha is no longer working for the FBI, and there is a serial killer after her, Blake wants to claim Samantha for himself. Samantha tries to hold back her feelings for Blake because she is sure if he discovers her secrets, he will not want anything to do with her. Blake is protective, loyal and totally committed to Samantha. He has to convince her nothing will ever change how he feels and Samantha has to learn she can trust Blake with her heart. This is a fast paced, action packed thriller full of suspense and grisly crime scenes. As a profiler, Samantha is able to get into the killer's head and she understands his motives, but the killer always seems to stay one step ahead of them. Samantha will do whatever it takes to stop the killer and Blake will do whatever it takes to keep Samantha safe. I liked Blake and Samantha. They each have flaws and vulnerabilities but when they are together, there is a lot of chemistry and passion sparking between them. Thanks to the author for providing a copy of this book vIa Cocktails and Books and Netgalley. The opinions expressed are my own.
