She thought her fiancé was the perfect man—until he turned out to be the perfect killer…

Katherine Cole is running for her life, desperate to escape the Valentine Killer—so-called because he stabs his victims through the heart and leaves them holding a telltale single red rose. Still he tracks her to New Orleans and begins carving a bloody path to her door. But this time, Katherine refuses to run any farther. This time, she’ll do anything to stop the madman she once loved, even trust the sexy cop promising to keep her safe…

Detective Dane Black never lets his emotions interfere with his job, even as the Valentine Killer surfaces in New Orleans to stalk his prey. But when Dane agrees to protect the killer’s ex-fiancée, Katherine Cole, he can’t ignore the passion kindling between them. After a single unforgettable night binds them body and soul, Dane knows he won’t rest until Katherine is safe in his arms—and the Valentine Killer is dead.

I have no idea why but when i saw this cover i just had to read this book. I like my romantic suspense but not so much when there is a lot of killing in them. It's more of a thriller is some ways than a romantic suspense. In any case it turned out to be a damn good mix. If i could have blocked out the time to read this in one sitting i would have. It didn't take me long to realize i was really going to enjoy this book. If after 3 chapters you don't want to put it down to do anything it's probably going to be a keeper. There is so much going on in this book but the pace is great. It's not too fast not too slow. The characters are complex and fleshed out. I always like to think i can figure out who the killer is when reading a book like this and for a while your sure it's Michael like it's supposed to be. Then the doubts come. lol I know i was off a time or two and thought there was a twist coming i could see but it wasn't what i thought.  Cynthia Eden keeps you guessing. Not only about the killer but the characters as well. Lots of suspicion and doubts among her characters. The only put off for me and it was slight is i felt the book went on a little to long.  That's it and it really wasn't a big factor at all for me. Would i recommend this book to a friend? Heck yes! It's a thrill ride for sure. 5 out of 5 stars for Die For Me by Cynthia Eden.
