New York Times and USA Today best-selling author Cynthia Eden spins a dark and sexy new paranormal romance tale…

He’s a man with a beast inside…

Connor Marrok never intended to work for the Seattle Para Unit. He’s not one of the good guys—he’s a real monster, and the beast he carries doesn’t exactly play nicely. But now he finds himself being blackmailed into a new assignment. It’s supposed to be his last gig. His mission? Protect the beautiful Chloe Quick. Keep her alive. Destroy her enemies. Easy enough…until he starts to fall for Chloe.

She just wants to escape.

Chloe is tired of being a prisoner. She wants to get away from her Para Unit guard and run fast into the night. So what if Connor is the sexiest guy she’s ever met? Chloe knows trouble when she sees it, and Connor is one big, dangerous package of trouble. But, when an obsessed werewolf begins stalking Chloe, she realizes that her paranormal bodyguard may just be the one man she needs the most.

Their attraction is primal.

Every moment that Chloe and Connor spend together increases their attraction. Chloe has never felt a need so strong or a desire so dark. The beast that Chloe carries inside has always been silent, but Connor is stirring up her animal instincts. And as the danger and desire begin to twist together, Chloe wonders just how far she’d be willing to go…in order to spend one more night in Connor’s arms.

At the end of Marked by the Vampire, Chloe was shown to be in trouble. At the beginning of this book, she’s trying to escape her bodyguard. She just wants to be free for a few minutes.

But she can’t truly be free.

Her father is a senator and he wants power. Whether it’s normal or paranormal, he wants it. And he’s used Chloe to get it.

Chloe isn’t human. Her scent calls to wolves everywhere. And unfortunately that means they can track her anywhere, even to a safe house, but they can especially track her if she slips her guard and takes off clubbing.

Connor has to keep Chloe close. Her scent affects him, but not as badly as it seems to affect other wolves. But make no mistake, it does affect him. She smells like sex and lust, and every male near and far wants her, but none so much as the bad guy, who was promised Chloe by her dad.

I won’t spoil the bad guy, because it’s a good plot twist. Just understand that it’s a very typical Cynthia Eden book; a hero who isn’t strictly a white knight, a fiery heroine, and a villain who you don’t necessarily see coming.

Cynthia Eden writes the best Paranormal Romantic Suspense out there. I’d recommend reading this series in order, and since The Wolf Within is free right now, I’d grab it and start.
