Nothing is deeper than the desire they can’t fight—or deadlier than the evil they can’t escape.

They were only supposed to have a professional relationship, but FBI agent Kyle McKenzie has been fantasizing about his sexy partner, Cadence Hollow, from the moment they first moment. It takes the darkest case of their careers to finally bring their hidden desire bubbling to the surface. Once they’re in each other’s arms, though, they swear that nothing short of death will part them. The Night Hunter—a cunning stalker whose four-state, fifteen-year abduction spree began in Paradox, Alabama, with Kyle’s sister—may be only too happy to oblige.

In the small town, Kyle must confront the painful past he’s been hiding from Cadence. Kyle vows to put the Hunter behind bars…or in the ground. But the one thing that obsesses Kyle more than his sister’s grim fate—his furious love for Cadence—is the weapon the Hunter will use to lure his pursuers into the mouth of a murderous trap. 

Scream For Me: A Novel of the Night Hunter is the last in the For Me trilogy, and we see familiar faces with our hero and heroine. Cadence and Kyle are partners, but Kyle wants more. But he can’t let Cadence know, or she’d pull away from him.

For Kyle, this case is personal. For Cadence, it’s just business…or is it?

Kyle’s younger sister disappeared 15 years ago, and when he gets the call that another young women has gone missing in the same area as his sister, his gut tells him this is connected. Everyone else wants him to believe that it’s coincidence, but Kyle knows it isn’t.

Cadence is an FBI profiler, the best around, but that’s not just because she’s good at her job. It’s because she can get inside the killers’ heads. She understands the monsters. But…does that make her a monster too?

I’ve noticed that Ms. Eden’s Montlake books are more Romantic Thrillers than Romantic suspense. I don’t know how to describe the differences well, but I feel that Romantic Thrillers lean more toward the thriller aspect with romance, while Romantic Suspenses lean toward the romance but with a suspense plot. I hope that makes sense.

This was excellent. The killer caught me off guard and the characters were well-rounded. But then again, Ms. Eden’s always are. She’s my go-to for Romantic Suspense.

With twists and terrors around every corner, will the agents make it out alive? And will their tenuous relationship survive?
