Guest & Contest: Caridad Pineiro

It’s so exciting to have a release in THE CALLING/REBORN series once again.  This is a series of my heart and I’m so happy that there will be at least another four books in the series headed your way over the next year!

I want to thank all of you who have been patiently waiting and asking when the next books would be out and also asking what was up with FBI Agent Diana Reyes and old Southern vampire Ryder Latimer.  I know you won’t be disappointed with their upcoming story since their two of my favorites and I really wanted to make things special for them.

Just like I wanted to make things special for Stacia.  Since this 2000 year old vampiress walked onto the scene in DEATH CALLS, I knew there was a lot behind her very sexy, aggressive façade.  I knew that beneath all that overblown confidence there was someone who was really hurting inside.

It was really fascinating reaching behind the walls Stacia had erected to explore how she had become what she was, both as a vampire and emotionally.  It was not a simple story, but rather one that was compelling and touching.

I loved writing it and I hope you’ll enjoy it!  In KISSED BY A VAMPIRE you get to explore Stacia’s past and present.  You all get to see when she finally meets her match in DEA Agent Alex Garcia, a man who is filled with love and honor.  One who she can’t chase away with the reality of her demon status.  One who refuses to believe that she is as uncaring as she tries to pretend.

As I mentioned, in KISSED BY A VAMPIRE I explore Stacia’s past and that involved writing some scenes in Ancient Rome.  That’s one of the fun things about writing vampire stories – exploring other eras in history.

Do you like seeing those backgrounds in your vampire romances or do you prefer more modern vampires?


Kissed by a Vampire

A vampire who has given up on love gets a second chance from a most unlikely mortal…

For two thousand years, vampire elder Stacia has roamed on her own, haunted by the betrayal that turned her into a creature of the night. Her nights looming empty and eternal, Stacia longs for love, but settles for quick bites and sinful pleasures in South Beach. Until she comes face-to-face with the unforgettable DEA agent she once brought back from the brink of death.

Alex Garcia knows that demons exist-the real kind, the kind that are kidnapping women and selling them into slavery. Finding those victims is his focus-not a beautiful seductress whose otherworldly abilities can’t possibly be real. But when Stacia summons all her powers to prove what she really is, Alex will summon all his to believe in the vampire’s kiss….

    I like both the historical background and the modern time. It just has to be a good story and there has to be a reason to bring up the historical info. If it’s just there and has no relevance I may get bored.
    Thank you.

  3. Thank you for coming by! I’m a history geek, so being able to go back and explore some other eras to build the back stories for the vampires has been lots of fun. With Stacia, I knew her past had to be a troubled one that was responsible for making her so hard. It was nice to build that and then have a way for her to lose that hardness and find the love she deserved.

    I like both.As long as it had a good compelling story I’ll read it.
    This sounds like a great book.Looking forward to reading it

    I love history in my romance books. I wish I could have learned using these books in school! I might have done better 🙂

    But I do love a good story. If the plot and storyline is good, I will keep reading.

  6. While I usually prefer contemporary backgrounds, I don’t think I’ve ever tried a historical paranormal romance, so I’d be more than willing to give it a try. Sounds provocative!

  7. Julia Abrantes says:

    I LOVED the entire “The Callng” series and can’t wait to tear into Stacia’s background in Kissed by a Vampire.

    I love the more contemporary vampire stories. However, there is something to be said about learning the background of a character. Learning about their life before they were turned. What was their life like that made them the way they are today. When reading their history, you’ll read something that makes you say “ah ha so that’s why she’s like this.” I love when I get to that part! It brings it all together.

    I know what I’ll be reading this weekend! 🙂

  8. I’m so glad there’s a new title in this series! Whoo-hoo! Congratulations, Caridad 🙂 Your stories are always a pleasure to read.

    Hi Caridad,
    I can’t wait to read this series. I love History in my Vampire reads a swell as modern times because being a History lover makes it more enjoyable for me. But I also would expect there to be some history due to the ages of most Vamps.
    Thanks for the chance.
    Carol L

  10. Karin Anderson says:

    I like both, but the ones with an historical background have more to bring to the table. They have a past and the knowledge that we would LOVE to have.

  11. JackieW says:

    I don’t really have a preference for aged vampires or contempory vampires……I just enjoy reading about them.
