Authors donate to anthology to raise money for colleague stricken with breast cancer
Eleven authors have donated their work to a box set of novellas to raise money for the medical expenses of a colleague stricken with breast cancer. The LAST HERO STANDING box set, which is set to release on Oct. 28, features 11 novels and novellas for only 99 cents, including a bonus short story from New York Times bestseller Dianna Love. All the proceeds from sales of the box set will go toward the medical expenses of USA Today bestselling author Pamela Clare, who was diagnosed with breast cancer this past April and has been unable to work since then.


First Taste of Darkness – Cynthia Eden
“I promise, you’re safe with me.” A new intensity had entered his voice, one that gave her pause. Again, Jess wished that she could see him better. She wished that she could look deep into his eyes.
The limo’s interior had seemed huge to her moments before, but it suddenly felt very small. Or maybe Blake was just too big. His wide shoulders stretched, filling the space, and he seemed to cage her next to him.
“When dawn comes,” her words weren’t as sharp anymore, “I get to leave?”
“If that’s what you want.”
Jess nodded. Sure, that was exactly what she’d want.
His fingers trailed down her cheek, then slipped over the curve of her neck. “Your pulse is racing so fast.”
She swallowed and knew he felt the small movement. “Being shot at will do that to me.”
Blake laughed. The sound sent a shiver over her. A man’s laugh shouldn’t be so sexy. “You are unexpected.”
Uh, okay.
He bent his head. His mouth replaced his hand on her neck. He kissed her lightly. Softly. And then she felt the rasp of his tongue on her throat.
Jess’s fingers dug into that fancy leather seat.
“Once you step into my world,” he murmured, and the edge of his teeth scored her flesh, “you may not want to leave.”
Her eyes had drifted closed, and Jess was working really hard to hold back a moan, so she barely heard his words.
A shoot-out, a seduction in the back of a limo—that was probably commonplace for him.
Not for her.

How has cancer touched you personally?
I’ve watched friends and family members battle cancer too many times. Every battle breaks my heart. I’m ready for cancer to be defeated, once and for all! I don’t want to lose anyone else that I love to cancer. No more!!! I want a world that is cancer-free.

Why did you participate in the LAST HERO STANDING fundraiser for fellow author Pamela Clare? 
I participated in this anthology because—quite simply—I think Pamela Clare is amazing. She is an incredibly strong woman, and I would do anything I could to assist Pamela in her fight with cancer.
