Cynthia Eden delves into the dark realms of the Others, where desires and dangerous games await the unsuspecting in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
Assistant DA Erin Jerome has a secret. Make that two. One: She's not entirely human-she's Other, desperately trying to keep her supernatural strength under wraps. Two: she's got a killer stalking her-an Other rogue set on "gifting" her bloody corpses, not to mention nights lying awake in terror. Small wonder she's been having bad luck with men.
But the bounty hunter on her new case isn't worried about any of that. Jude Donovan is a shapeshifter himself, and the new DA's midnight hair and addictive scent tell him all he thinks he needs to know: She's gorgeous, she's definitely not human, and she's bringing out the animal in him in a really good way. He might have to track a psychotic Other stalker through half of Louisiana. But he might also get the chance to watch Erin's wild side come out and play.

My Summary:
Jude Donavan is a bounty hunter for Night Watch, a shifter who always catches his prey. When dragging a catch out of the Louisiana swamps Jude encounters the new Assistant DA, Erin Jerome. Jude can smell Other on her but what species of Other, that is an intriguing mystery that Jude is determined to solve. 
Erin is starting fresh, trying to live a normal life and staying away from Others, especially shifters. She thinks she has escaped her psychotic stalker who claims she's his mate until a criminal she is prosecuting is gruesomely murdered and then a murder attempted on an acquaintance.
Erin hires Jude to track down & stop her stalker but she ends up more then just a job to him. Jude brings the wildness out in Erin and the tiger has more then enough strength to handle her beast.
But they both have secrets, will they be able to overcome their own insecurities and learn to trust each other and catch her stalker before someone else is murdered?

My Thoughts:
A dark & sexy tale, every page will leave you craving for more. Eternal Hunger takes you into the secret world of Others, a world of shifters, vampires, charmers and demons. Where a group of Others and a few select humans hunt down those in the paranormal community that cross the line.
Eternal Hunger is a fantastically gritty & realistic paranormal crime and romance with surprising twists right until the very end.
Eden’s writing style is short and to the point and she gives you an action-packed plot that centers around a serial killer stalker with intriguing sub-plots involving dynamic characters.
The hero & heroine are evenly matched, which is great to see in the paranormal world. Eden provides smooth character & relationship growths between the two and sizzling romance that will make you weak at the knees. Not to mention the mind-blowing love scenes to look forward to. Grrrowl...
A great read ending with a satisfying conclusion. This is my first Cynthia Eden read and I will be going back for more! I could picture every scene like a film rolling in my head.
The only thing, and I’m not sure if it was because I was reading it in eform or not, is that the POV jumped around without any warning and I had to backtrack for a quick sec to get it.
