Mine to Take by Cynthia Eden: First Five.

New York Times & USA Today Best-seller! 

Skye Sullivan knows that someone is watching her. Not just watching–stalking her. Months ago, Skye was involved in a dangerous car accident. The accident ended her dancing career and sent her fleeing back to Chicago. Skye is convinced that her stalker caused the crash, and she fears that he won’t stop pursuing her, not until she’s dead.

When someone breaks into her apartment in Chicago, Skye turns to the one man she believes can protect her–Trace Weston. Once, Trace was her lover. Two lost souls, they’d come together in a firestorm of need and desire. But then Trace had pushed her away. He’d joined the military, vanishing from her life. She’d put all of her emotion into dancing, and she’d tried to forget him.

Now Trace is one of the most successful men in the United States. Rich, driven, and carrying dark secrets, he agrees to help Skye. He’ll protect her from the danger that lurks in the darkness, but Trace wants more than to just be a guard for Skye.

He wants her. And he’ll take her. The years have changed him, hardened him. He’s not just a poor kid from the streets any longer. Now, he can have anything–or anyone–that he wants. And the one woman he has always wanted has just come back into his life. He won’t let her go again.

But with the threats mounting against Skye, she suspects that her stalker may be intimately close. He’s a man who knows her too well. As his attacks grow ever more dangerous, she realizes that if she trusts the wrong man, she could be making a fatal mistake.

Lust. Love. Obsession.

Just how far would you go in order to possess the one person you want the most?



SENTENCE ONE: Skye Sullivan stared up at the building before her.

THOUGHTS: Okay. She’s outside looking at a building. So far, I’m a little bored.

SENTENCE TWO: It shot high into the sky, its massive windows gleaming in the light. 

THOUGHTS: Good visual sentence. I like it.

SENTENCE THREE: There were too many floors for her to count.

THOUGHTS: Still, good visuals. Wondering why she’s staring though.

SENTENCE FOUR: Looking more like a fortress than an office, the place spoke of power.

THOUGHTS: Okay. This has me thinking she’s going for a job interview. Reminds me of one of my favorite authors, Tiffany Snow.


SENTENCE SIX, PLUS: A lot of it. “Miss?” The doorman eyed her with a hint of concern in his dark eyes. Probably because she was standing in the middle of the street, gawking up at the place. Skye gave a quick shake of her head, pulled her coat a bit closer around her, and hurried inside that fortress. Getting out of that icy Chicago air was relief for her. 

THOUGHTS: I love the visuals. Love the new or possibly ‘new job’ feel. Love that this takes me back to KATHLEEN TURNER days. Ah. I miss her. This read, however,  is FREE so snatch it up. Cynthia Eden has managed to capture my attention with very little effort. I’m confident the rest of Mine to Take will be equally brilliant. (And so far, it is!)
