Lights. Camera. Action.
Gwenevere Solomon is the current “It” girl in Hollywood. The star of a dozen films, she seemingly has the world at her feet. Gwen’s problem? She also has one very dangerous stalker at her door. His attacks are getting bolder, and Gwen is becoming more and more afraid. Because this stalker…he knows secrets that she’s fought hard to keep buried. The kind of secrets that can destroy a woman’s life.
A ghost from her past can save her.
Gwen needs protection, and she needs that protection now. So enter her new leading her man…Simon Forrest. Tall, dark, and ever-so deadly, Simon is the lover she left behind. Or rather, the lover who left her behind. He went off and became a SEAL, saving the world and riding one adrenaline high after the other. But he’s back now, and as part of Wilde Securities, he’s supposed to offer the best, most discreet protection service in the business. He’ll pretend to be her lover so the press won’t realize her life is going to hell, and Simon will stop her stalker.
He can keep his hands off her…and keep her shielded at the same time.
Simon never got over Gwen, and the fact that she’s been filling the big screen with her gorgeous self? Yeah, it’s just made her even more tempting…and put her even further out of his reach. Simon was never good enough for Gwen, and he knew it. But this time, he can help her. He can catch the stalker, unmask the jerk, and keep Gwen shining in her spotlight. Easy as pie. Or, it should be.
Except…Simon might not be able to stop himself from falling for her all over again.
Because when the cameras stop watching, that’s when the real action begins…GUARDING GWEN, a sexy romantic suspense from New York Times best-selling author Cynthia Eden.

passionate and suspense filled
GUARDING GWEN is the second instalment in Cynthia Eden’s contemporary, adult, erotic, romantic suspense series focusing on the men and women who work for Wilde Securities. This is Wilde Securities Vice President and former Navy SEAL Simon Forrest, and Hollywood movie star Gwenevere ‘Gwen’ Solomon’s story line. GUARDING GWEN can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Any important information from the previous story line is revealed where necessary.
Told from dual third person perspectives (Gwen and Simon) GUARDING GWEN is a second chance romance between Wilde Securities Vice President and former Navy SEAL Simon Forrest, and Hollywood movie star Gwenevere ‘Gwen’ Solomon. Years earlier, high school sweethearts Simon and Gwen planned for a future: Gwen was going to college, and Simon had enlisted into the Navy but Simon believed he had nothing to offer the woman he loved, so he walked away without looking back. Fast forward to present wherein Gwen Solomon, now an award winning Hollywood actress was in need of personal protection, and Simon Forrest was her only hope. What ensues is the rekindling romance and relationship between Simone and Gwen, and the potential fall-out as Gwen’s life continues to spiral out of control.
Gwen Solomon has a stalker who knows her secrets. Very few people know what happened including the man she hasn’t stopped loving, a man whose need to protect Gwen supersedes all rational distance and time. Simon Forrest no longer works in the field but seeing the fear in the woman he loves, Simon becomes both personal protector and lover for our story line heroine. From threatening texts and phone calls, to car bombs and murder, Gwen Solomon’s life is no longer her own.
The relationship between Gwen and Simon is a rekindling but acrimonious romance; a second chance for two people destroyed by one man’s self-doubt, and a whole whack of a lack of communication. Gwen struggles with issues of trust as Simon battles for her heart. The $ex scenes are intimate, erotic and intense without the use of over the top, sexually graphic language and text.
The large ensemble cast of colorful secondary and supporting characters include defense attorney Kendrick Shaw; Gwen’s PA Van, her agent Evie, stunt double Raven Charles, and fellow actor Austin Quest. We are reintroduced to Eric Wilde and Piper Lane (Protecting Piper #1), as well as Eric’s brother, divorce attorney Ben Wilde, security specialist Julia Slate, and Eric’s assistant Dennis. Ben’s story is next in Before Ben.
GUARDING GWEN is a story of second chances, betrayal, jealousy and revenge. The premise is intriguing and engaging; the romance is hot and heavy; the characters are energetic and captivating. GUARDING GWEN is a passionate and suspense filled story.
