Cynthia has won several awards for her work and appears to be a very active writer, with new novels to be realised soon.
I won Eternal flame through a first reads contest, and wish to thank those who made the contest possible.
Zane Wynter is a hybrid demon, a mix of the human, and the inhuman. As far as power goes he burns like wild fire. He dedicates these dark powers to finding criminals, and he is good at what he does.
Or he was good, until he met Jana.
Jana is on the run from a lethal organisation called project Perseus. Once she worked alongside these people in the belief that she was helping make the world a better place. She didn’t realise this would be a place without paranormals.
Amongst other problems Jana soon realises she has a bounty on her head and Zane Wynter has every intention of bringing her in.
I’m not a diehard fan of the romance genre, but, that being said I’m still a woman and don’t mind reading the occasional book. When I picked up Eternal flame I expected a whole lot of mush and not a lot else. Boy was I wrong.
Eternal flame has an excellent pace, and I often found I couldn’t put the book down until I’d finished reading a scene. Sex scenes were mild and though once they scraped the edge of ridiculous most were believable and happened at sensible times. The characters were fun and interesting. The plot was neat and had several twists and turns, not to mention a touch of mystery.
At times Eternal flame moved to quickly and POV’s jumped rapidly from one character to another, something I’m not a big fan of. Another little niggle I found, was that at the start of the novel the author would write dialogue and then tag it without the use of the pronoun. Without the pronoun in place I would become confused or just annoyed.
In general a great little book to pass the time with. I would suggest this to women who are diehard fans of the paranormal genre. Or people who would like something a little different to read. ...more

The voice of blood is one in a series of books that centre around her characters, Orfeo Ricari and Daniel.
Things aren’t going to well for Arianne, she’s been fighting with her fiancé and it’s that time of the month when her period is due. Through a chain of disturbing events she meets Orfeo Ricari and learns that he is a vampire. The pair begin a bizarre friendship and slowly she is drawn into the dark world of vampires.
Not a fan of this book. I admit I enjoy gore and the occasional sex scene and I don’t mind trashy novels, I just felt this one went too far.
As far as vampires go, same old mould I guess with the exception of these guys being able to walk around of a daytime. I was disappointed because I thought this book would scare me, unfortunately it was creepy but not fright material.
The vampires held the sexuality that is stereotypical in this genre of books, brutally erotic and your general screw fest. I had to laugh part way through the novel when Arianne states that she doesn’t have casual sex often, throughout the course of the book she has four sexual partners.
What I did like was the originality of Orfeo Ricari as a character. I can’t say I’ve read a vampire novel yet with a catholic vampire seldom seen without his rosary.
Well that’s it, I wish I could offer up other comments... A trashy novel that I’m sure vampire fans will enjoy. If you have a low tolerance for vampire fiction I advise you to steer away from this one. ...more
