Each time Cynthia Eden releases a Wilde Ways book, I can’t read it fast enough.  This series of standalones is exactly what I want in a book. There is suspense, love, hurts, and of course the HEA.  Penelope and Elijah were involved after he saved her from a serial killer.  Things happened and Penelope walked away.  They both were heartbroken by this act, and neither got over it.  But that was not the end.  Penelope is having issues, and she seeks out Elijah for help.  What follows is a story filled with action, truths, emotions, and growth from both the hero and the heroine.  I really enjoyed the relationship between these two, and loved that we got little snippets from past Wilde characters.  You do not need to read these all together because they are extremely strong on their own, but you are truly missing out on a great series if you do not read them all. Cynthia Eden has a way with words, and it is what keeps me coming back.
