Please welcome fabulous guest author Cynthia Eden for the kickoff of Monster Mash-Up! She writes about the kind of 'monsters' I'd never kick out of bed and I'm thrilled to have her here! If you haven't read her stuff, you're totally missing out! She writes some sexy sexy heroes! So, without further ado, here she is!
Hi, everyone! A big thanks to Katie for inviting me over for some Monster Mash fun!
Oh, monsters, how I do love them. Long before I ever wrote a paranormal romance with my own monster hero, I was already addicted to vampires, shifters, and all those delicious guys that go bump in the night.
Does anyone remember the old Dark Shadows show? I sighed over the vampire lead, Barnabas Collins (I’ve heard Johnny Depp may play that character in a re-make—oh, I hope that rumor is true!). I hunted monsters with Mulder on The X-Files. I believed the truth was out there, and I couldn’t wait to find it. And when Buffy realized that she loved a bit of monster in man, I was right there, agreeing with her. After all, a man with the right touch of monster is pretty awesome.
And now? Well, now I’m chasing all kinds of monsters with the Winchester brothers (oh, Supernatural, how I love you). With all these monster shows, is it any wonder that I’ve got monsters on my mind?
Halloween puts me even more in the monster spirit. It makes me want to watch all my favorite monster shows, again and again (like more Dean Winchester is a bad thing), and it makes me want to read paranormal romances so I can get my fix on supernatural heroes. Just because a guy is a monster, well, that doesn’t mean he can’t save the day.
Monsters can make most excellent heroes.
I’ve enjoyed creating some monster heroes in my own stories. Guys who skirt that fine line between good and evil. Guys who can get vicious in a fight. Guys who may just transform into a beast if the need arises.
For my next paranormal release, I focused on a supernatural being that I hadn’t explored before. I wanted someone dark. Some dangerous. Someone…like a Fallen Angel. ANGEL OF DARKNESS will introduce readers to my Fallen heroes. Angels who can kill with a touch and seduce with a look. Temptation has never been more fun. (It’s temptation, monster style!)
Want to win an early copy of ANGEL OF DARKNESS? Then tell me about a monster that you love. It can be a character from a book, from a TV show—anything. Share! One commenter will be randomly picked to win the prize.
