Montlake / November 12, 2013 / $12.95 print, $9.99 digital
A shared passion for justice first brought Baton Rouge district attorney Lauren Chandler and US marshal Anthony Ross together—when each played their part in bringing down the infamous Bayou Butcher. The sparks flying between the two made it clear they weren't just a legal dream team. Then desire had to make way for duty, and what they had was done. But it would never be over.
Five years later, it's none other than the Butcher who gets things started again, when his shocking jailbreak reunites the lawyer and the lawman...and reignites their love. But this time, the pair is in danger of being permanently parted—by a killer with revenge on his mind, and Lauren on the top of his list. As a new wave of terror sweeps through the streets and swamps of Baton Rouge, one man will pit his boundless passion against another's relentless hate, for the life of the woman who obsesses them both.
Obsession. That’s the watchword of the new romantic thriller Fear for Me from Cynthia Eden. Last seen in Eden’s previous thriller Die for Me: A Novel of The Valentine Killer, Federal Marshal Anthony Ross has been obsessed with DA Lauren Chandler since the first time they hunted The Bayou Butcher five years ago. Instantly attracted, they burned up the sheets when they weren’t burning through the bayou in search of the notorious killer. But once the killer was caught, Anthony lit out for the big city of New Orleans without even pausing to tell Lauren goodbye. Now the Bayou Butcher has escaped from prison with a murderous agenda and Anthony has returned to Baton Rouge no less obsessed with Lauren then he was the first time around.
