Shattered Blog Tour: Interview + Giveaway

Today I'm thrilled to have author Cynthia Eden stopping by the blog as part of the promotional tour for the third installment of her fantastic LOST series, Shattered. I loved the first two books in this series (each book features a new couple and a new mystery) and now can't wait to dive in to Sarah and Jax's story. I hope those of you who have yet to meet the members of LOST will do so after reading the interview, enjoy!

If the men and women of LOST could choose a character from any other piece of fiction to join their team, whose set of skills would they most want to utilize?

LOST would definitely recruit Penelope Garcia from Criminal Minds. Her tech skills would be an amazing addition to the team. When it comes to computers, Penelope is a master, and she’d add both wit and tech value to the team.

This is a bit of a stretch, but if Jax were to play tour guide for someone who’s never been to New Orleans, what are three places he’d recommend they see?

I bet Jax would love to play tour guide! He’d start with Bourbon Street (a must for him), then he’d recommend a nice, long stroll through Jackson Square (with a pause for beignets). Jax would end the night with a haunted tour of the French Quarter. After all, he totally loves a good scare.

Sarah has very personal reasons for becoming a criminal psychologist. If she were to put together a file on her serial killer father, how would the first line of her notes read?

What a great question! And I bet Sarah does have a file on her father… probably quite a few.  The first line would be:

A monster who wears the skin of a man…Murphy should never be trusted and he should absolutely not be underestimated.

Despite the fact that each case widely varies, what would Sarah say are some recurring characteristics typically present in her profiles of serial killers?

Sarah would say that serial killers are highly intelligent and very methodical. After all, they’d have to be smart in order to get away with their crimes. Otherwise, they’d be captured after their first kill. The serial killers would also have very low empathy (or they’d feel no empathy at all). They don’t feel the pain of their victims—it’s all about the pleasure of the kill for the men and women Sarah profiles.

If Jax were to consider joining the LOST team, what’s the first question he’d ask founder Gabe before signing up?

Ah…Jax…well, he’d want to know, “Will Sarah be my partner? Because I’ll only work with her.”

Thanks so much for interviewing me!

Thank YOU Cynthia!

In New York Times bestselling author Cynthia Eden's latest novel featuring the Last Option Search Team (LOST), one agent is forced to face her past as she uncovers secrets about the man who may be the key to her future.

Criminal psychologist Dr. Sarah Jacobs is all too familiar with the kind of bad boys who belong behind bars. But the dark, dangerous man she meets in the New Orleans underworld is a new kind of ruthless, and all too irresistible.

Jax Fontaine doesn't claim to be a good guy, but he's loyal to his own code and brutally honest about what he wants. He and Sarah may be worlds apart, but when they're skin to skin, nothing matters but the heat between them.

And when a deranged killer targets Sarah, Jax will do whatever it takes to keep her safe.
