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 fled Washington, DC, for the quiet anonymity of Alabama.
Now an all-too-familiar killer is hunting once again. She can catch the sadistic 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.
After the Dark by Cynthia Eden
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Title: After The Dark
Author: Cynthia Eden
Almost a year ago I came across one of Cynthia Eden's sponsored posts on Facebook, then received an email from Amazon about upcoming releases of hers and I was curious to find out the types of novels she wrote. And they were as different as can be, not one book like the other. Which is what After The Dark became ~ a suspenseful novel that had me guessing every single moment as I kept reading along. The story about a profiler whose career is careening towards the depths and the only way she believes can bring her reputation back is by apprehending a serial killer she knows a little too well. The closer she gets to him, the more her life is in danger and only one person can help her stay safe, an ex military man with a rough exterior.
I was absolutely enchanted and couldn't get enough!the first being in the series, After The Dark was the perfect introduction to what I know will be a thrilling adventure. Cynthia Eden has a way of taking two characters and making them come alive ~ to make them breathe, live, feel a full range of emotions and then make us want to really get to know them. Which is what I wanted; to know more about them, fall more in love with their struggles, the obstacles they faced and especially to finding exactly what is going to happen in the future for both Samantha and Blake. I can't wait for more in this series and am truly looking forward to more!
