A little late, so sorry.
Eternal Flame…Or Why I Still Like Those Bad Boys
By: Cynthia Eden
Once upon a time, there was a hero with a bit of a dark past (way more than a bit). He wasn’t perfect (so far from it). In fact, he had a very, very bad side. He wasn’t a white knight. He was, um, a demon. He could control fire, slip into the minds of humans, and generally cause chaos with a glance.
I loved that hero. J
Sure, some girls like to write about white knights, but for me, I prefer writing about a more battered and dangerous hero. The hero in my latest novel, ETERNAL FLAME (available 11/30/10) from Kensington Brava, is such a dangerous guy. Zane Wynter is a demon. He’s spent years hunting real-life monsters, and when he’s given his latest assignment, he figures he’ll just be taking down another killer.
Except the killer he’s after turns out to be far more than he expected.
Yes, the “killer” is my heroine—what can I say? I think I like writing about bad girls, too!
Maybe it’s because in real-life, I always do the good girl routine. I bake cookies for my son’s class. I host parties for friends. I always look both ways when I cross the street. All good.
Sometimes, though, you just want to be bad. So I let my bad side out in my books. I let my characters be as dark and wild as they’d like to be….and I have a blast writing about them.
What about you? Are you a real-life good-girl? Do you have a secret crush on the bad boys? Share with me! One commenter will win a copy of ETERNAL FLAME.
