The first novel in New York Times bestselling author Cynthia Eden's sizzling LOST series introduces the Last Option Search Team, an elite unit that must protect the only surviving victim of a serial killer.
Ex-SEAL and LOST founder Gabe Spencer is accustomed to the unusual in his job. But when knockout Eve Gray steps into his office, he's rattled. For the mysterious woman is a dead ringer for the heiress thought to be the latest prey of the serial killer who goes by the name Lady Killer.
When Eve awoke in an Atlanta hospital, her past was a blank slate. Then she recognized her own face in the newspaper and vowed to learn the truth. Determined to confront the nightmares hidden in her mind, she never expects to find a partner in Gabe.
As Gabe and Eve work together, their explosive attraction becomes irresistible. Gabe knows that his desire for Eve is growing too strong, bordering on a dangerous obsession, but nothing pulls him away from her. And when another Eve lookalike disappears, Gabe vows to protect Eve at all costs. While Eve may have forgotten the killer in her past, it's clear he hasn't forgotten her.
Eden (the Dark Obssession series) launches a suspense series with a fast-paced and erotic thriller about the Last Option Search Team (LOST), an Atlanta-based private agency that specializes in tracking down missing persons. LOST founder Gabe, a former Navy SEAL, falls almost instantly for Eve, an amnesiac who comes to LOST convinced she's a survivor of an Alabama serial murderer called the Lady Killer. Eve falls just as hard for Gabe, and when her life is threatened, the LOST team heads to Alabama's Gulf Coast to get answers. Eden isn't shy about getting her characters together right away. The romance and mystery are both uncomplicated, but the suspense is ratcheted up constantly, and the large group of secondary characters ensures both danger and some gruesome deaths. With a solid cast of LOST employees as future protagonists (all with their own dark backgrounds and secrets) and plenty of well-delivered romance and sex, this novel works well on its own and as a starting point for the series.
