Hopefully you read my review of All Bets Are On but if not now is your chance to check it out and get to know author Cynthia Cooke a little bit better 🙂

Say Hi to Cynthia everyone!


*What do you like best about writing romances?

Disappearing into another world, and getting to know the characters. Watching what they do, and helping them find their happily ever after.  No matter how hard or bad their lives get, it always works out well in the end. 

*What is your favorite romantic story (movie/book, fact/fiction)?

There are so many, it’s hard to choose. I love Nora Roberts, I love Susan Elizabeth Phillips. I love Lisa Gardner and Iris Johansen.

*If you could be any romantic character, who would it be and why?

Off the top of my head, Sookie Stackhouse. She is so funny and she takes things in stride, and most of all, she has a lot of people who care about her. 

*Which of your characters/books was the most fun to write?

They are all hard. Some of my favorite stories though were Shiver and Black Magic Lover. They both took place in Louisiana, and I love how different it is there. How moody and atmospheric. I also loved my wolf shifter books, Running With Wolves and Lying With Wolves because the mythology behind the wolf Colony was so creative. All Bets are On was just a fun kick in the pants. It’s my first book that has a lot of humor in it, and being able to pull that off was very gratifying. 

*If you weren’t a writer and could be anything you want, what would it be? 

I would love to learn how to paint. Hopefully life will free up a bit in the next few years and I can start taking some lessons.

His wicked games…

The Prince of Hell needs to get laid. Well, according to his minions, anyway. Now Derek Wescott, ruler of the Eighth Level of Hell, has been set up on an online date. And worse still, his minions are placing bets that Derek won’t be able to entice the sweet yet plain Jaclyn Reynolds into bed before midnight. But Derek has no intention of losing the bet. Not now. Not ever.

Jaclyn, on the other hand, is in danger of losing everything. The charity she runs is in trouble, and she is desperate for cash. The moment she sees her absolutely gorgeous—and insanely wealthy—date, she knows she’s in way over her head. She also knows his type all too well, and it will be a cold day in Hell before she ever gets into his bed. Yet Derek offers her a friendly wager: he’ll give $10,000 to her charity if she can resist him.

The wagers have been set. The game has begun. And Derek will do just about anything to ensure that Jaclyn is completely—and infernally—his
