Twisted by Cynthia Eden Blog Tour


In the second seductive LOST novel from New York Times bestselling author Cynthia Eden, an obsessed Last Option Search Team agent goes looking for trouble—and finds her in the Big Easy.

Dean Bannon comes to New Orleans for one reason only: to track down a missing sixteen-year-old girl. That’s before he meets the drop-dead gorgeous con artist who makes him want to lose his legendary control.

With her past, Emma Castille doesn’t claim to be psychic. She just notices things other people don’t. Like the fear in a runaway’s eyes—or the pain in an ex-FBI agent’s heart. Her chemistry with Dean is blistering, but Emma follows her passion… not someone else’s orders.

Then a madman breaks into Emma’s home and leaves a twisted message: You’re next. Now Dean refuses to let her out of his sight until he pries every last secret from her full, sexy lips. And suddenly Emma’s aching to give him everything he wants.

“You’re not psychic.”

Were they back to that?

She put her hands in her lap. Emma didn’t believe in making nervous gestures. She didn’t believe in giving away anything at all with her body language.

“What you are …” Ah, now he did smile. Her father would have called it a shit-eating grin. The more PC term was probably a Cheshire cat smile. Whatever the name, that smile annoyed her. “What you are, Ms. Castille … is a criminal. A fraud.”

Maybe she should grab her chest and dramatically gasp. She didn’t. “Wonderful for you,” Emma said. “You pulled up a background report one me.” She let her eyes widen a bit. “It’s amazing just what one can find if a person knows how to use a search engine.”

A furrow appeared between his eyes.

“How about I say what …you are?” Emma asked him. “A washed-up FBI agent who snapped on the job. You held your control tight every single day, but the bad guys—they just didn’t stop, did they? You hunted them, you stopped them, and more appeared. While you were fighting the system, they kept coming, and the bodies kept piling up on your watch.”

He shot right back to his feet. The folding chair slammed down behind him.

“You and your father bilked desperate people,” he accused. “You told them you were psychic, that you could help find their missing children. And you—”

“We found them.” Two girls who’d vanished. They’d found them. “We just didn’t get to them in time.” And she would not go back to that place.

She motioned toward Manuel. He knew the signal meant he could take over her booth. There was no way, no way, that she was going to stay there with that prick while he slammed the most painful moments from her past in Emma’s face.

Manuel, pale, tattooed, with piercings in his lips and eyebrows, quickly claimed her spot. Emma jumped to her feet. Muttered her thanks, and fled right past the guy she was starting to think of as Agent Jackass.

She pushed through the crowd. Wasn’t there always a crowd in Jackson Square? And that was why she loved the place. It was so easy to vanish in a crowd. To be anyone.

The crowd closed around her.

To be no one at all.

She hurried around the back of the cathedral. She knew the streets so well. Her home was close by. Emma would get inside and forget Agent Jackass.

I’m being followed.

Emma stilled at the intersection. A horse-drawn carriage rolled by her. Voices called out.

And he touched her.

Emma didn’t flinch. Didn’t scream. She looked down at the hand on her shoulder. “When a woman runs away from you, that means you need to stay the hell away from her.”

His hold tightened on her. “You and I aren’t done.”

She looked up at his face. Had she really thought the man was handsome? Annoying, that was all Dean Bannon was.

“I need to find that girl, and you’re the only lead I have so far.”

“Then you’re not a very good investigator.”






Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

Shelby☆☆☆☆
The 2nd book in the Lost Series, can be read as a stand-alone but does incorporate characters met in the first book.
This was a thrilling romantic suspense that had me on the edge of my seat and guessing the entire book.
Dean Bannon, the tracker for the LOST group, is in New Orleans trying to find a 16 year old girl who has gone missing from Atlanta, GA. Young Julia has been missing for some time and her mother is desperately searching for her.
Dean finds Emma, who seems to be the last person to see Julia.
Emma has some peculiar skills that she offers to put into use to find Julia.
Deciding to partner up, they start the search for a homeless girl – and the person responsible for her disappearance.
Everyone has skeletons in their closet, some more than others – and sometimes those skeletons have a mind of their own.
Overall, this was a well-written and exciting story full of suspense, a touch of romance, and some super-sexy scenes!


Shannan☆☆☆☆
Right from the beginning Twisted jumps right in with the action. I am loving this group from LOST. The suspense, the action, the constant guessing who did it. There was insta-love in this one, which is usually a turn off but it worked.

Dean is the calm cool collected, ex-FBI agent sent to look for Julia a missing sixteen year old. He finds way more than he bargained for when he asks Emma, a street fortune teller for help. Things aren't always what they appear, monsters can hide in plain sight.

Such a good read. I love a book that keeps me guessing. Can't wait to see what happens next!


Ruthie☆☆☆☆
This is the second in the series, and highlights Dean, ex-FBI member of the LOST team. All the team feature, so although it is an easy stand-alone, there is some back story which adds to the book.

I really enjoyed this complex, intense and passionate action romance. It has a very strong storyline, which is tense and unpredictable, as well as having a developing relationship between the leads. It has depth and length, so is really good value reading. I recommend it to you.
