Cynthia Eden’s Killer Instinct series takes readers into the dangerous world of FBI agents. Her latest installment, Before the Dawn, focuses on a profiler who must return to the place he grew up to save the girl he once loved from a killer. To celebrate the book’s release, Eden shared a list of FBI heroes she wouldn’t mind being rescued by.
I love strong, smart, and sexy heroes. Heroes who are not afraid of danger—the tough heroes who put their lives on the line in order to protect those who are vulnerable. FBI heroes have always been some of my absolute favorite characters because they embody the traits that I enjoy so much. The characters in my books After the Dark and Before the Dawn embody those qualities, so I’m excited to share a few of my all-time favorite FBI heroes that I have enjoyed reading about.
I love anything Julie Garwood writes. I first became hooked on her historicals, and I happily followed her when she began writing romantic suspense. In Heartbreaker, FBI Agent Nick Buchanan is tough, sexy, and completely ready to risk his life protecting the heroine. Fast-paced and seductive, this book is always on my recommend list.
Talk about a hot and steamy new take on an FBI agent! The hero’s classic car garage is a front for an FBI operation (a plot twist that I loved because I’m crazy for classic cars). The hero has to conceal his real identity, keep his other secrets carefully hidden, and try not to fall for the heroine as he works his mission. This book is a fast, burning hot read, and I can’t wait to enjoy more titles in this series.
Stone Cold Undercover Agent is a brand new book—and one that caught my attention from the blurb! (I’m a blurb girl, what can I say?) The FBI hero is working undercover in a crime ring, and when he’s presented with the “gift” of the heroine, everything in his world changes. The heroine can help him to bring down the crime ring, and she can also bring the hero right down to his knees.
I love it when an author mixes different romance sub-genres in a story, and Heather Graham masterfully blends elements of suspense and paranormal romance in her latest book, Dark Rites. Special Agent Griffin Pryce must face an ancient evil in the pages of this book, and I love the idea of incorporating FBI hunting techniques in a paranormal crime. If you’re looking for something a bit different, this FBI hero is for you!
In His to Protect, we have a hero who is an ex-FBI Agent. Don’t worry—he still has all of the FBI hotness. Kell Malone might be working private security now, but the guy definitely knows how to get the job done. He uses his FBI training in an edge-of-your-seat adventure. Steamy and intense, this book had me hooked on all of the Red Stone Security Series books by Katie Reus.
No one does hard-hitting, edge-of-your-seat romance quite like Kaylea Cross. Marked is the first book in her Hostage Rescue Team series, and it features a villain from the FBI’s most wanted list. A friends-to-lovers story with a reunited twist, Marked kept me reading long into the night. FBI Agent Jake Evers is a determined hero, a true-blue type that the heroine could count on, no matter what—the perfect type of hero to melt a reader’s heart.
There you have it: six fabulous “to-die-for” FBI heroes. Happy reading to you!
