Caridad Pineiro | A series REBORN


Years ago when I decided to write the first book in THE CALLING/REBORN Vampire Novel series, most of my friends thought I'd gone off the deep end.  Vampires?  You?  Are you crazy?  Who wants to read vampire stories?

At the time I had been writing contemporary romances, intense, emotional, and sexy stories where boy meets girl, boy loses girl, boy and girl get back together.  Don't get me wrong, I love those kinds of stories and am working on a new contemporary romance series.

Even though I loved those stories, a dark part inside of me said, What if boy met girl and it was mission impossible?  Or what if "Love you forever" really meant "forever" as in "eternally yours?"

That darkness was the inspiration for the first book in the series - DARKNESS CALLS.  Apt title although it wasn't my original one.  You'll get to see that title and others - BORN TO SERVE, BORN TO LOVE, and BORN TO DIE -- when THE CALLING series relaunches as THE REBORN series in February 2013 with Entangled Publishing.

In DARKNESS CALLS, kick-ass FBI Agent Diana Reyes faces the challenge of the sexy, Southern vampire gentleman, Ryder Latimer.  It was a happily-ever-for now since I think we all knew - the editors, readers, and little ol' me - that Ryder and Diana's story didn't end with that first book.  Nor did it end with DEATH CALLS a few years later.  In BORN TO SERVE, you'll see Diana and Ryder's story continue as they reach for that happily-ever-after.

Speaking of DEATH CALLS, I introduced two new characters to the world of THE CALLING/REBORN in that book:  Stacia, a two-thousand year old vampiress and DEA Agent Alex Garcia.

I loved both of them because of how different they were and how complex.

Alex was honorable, by the book and determined to stop a terrorist plot, even it killed him (which it almost did.)

Stacia was just so outrageous in every way you can imagine.  Stacia was so desperate for love, she chased after both Diana and Ryder with equal fervor, determined to try and end the boredom of her eternal existence.

Finding a happily-ever-after didn't happen in DEATH CALLS for Stacia.  It didn't happen either in the free read DESIRE CALLS which you can find at www.rebornvampirenovels.com.

But in KISSED BY A VAMPIRE, my October Nocturne release, Stacia finally meets a man who can end her boredom and give her something she thought impossible in her long existence:  love.  Along the way to Stacia finally beginning to believe in the impossible, we find out the harsh world that shaped Stacia and come to love her for being a survivor and for being willing to help others even if it may mean the end of her eternal existence.

KISSED BY A VAMPIRE is a sexy, emotional and touching story as Stacia and Alex try to make sense of what has brought them together and what threatens to keep them apart.  I hope you will check it out for yourself.

I think mixing suspense with paranormal gives the story more depth. I can
be so interesting to anxiously wait to find out what happens. Thanks for
giving a chance to win one of your great stories.

Sounds like a great read. Would love to win it.
(Linda Hall 12:23pm October 29, 2012)

Readers of paranormals will enjoy suspense mixed in too so I think the first step is to get a nervous reader convinced to try a paranormal. I don't read horror, but I do read some paranormals. If I did not enjoy them I would not continue!
(Clare O'Beara 6:46am October 29, 2012)

I enjoy a mix, particularly suspense and paranormal. In my Kindle a constantly gravitate back to the suspenseful
paranormals for re-reads.
(Beth Charette 7:03am October 29, 2012)

I think suspense and paranormal is a match made in, well, someplace-appropriate. :D

abb great contest
(Kent Cook 3:53pm October 29, 2012)

Hiya! Hiding in SC doing this blog, I see. ;-) Of course, I like
paranormal & suspense, mix 'em all you want. How does one
hide one's identity when lives as long as 2,000 yr so 'normal'
human folks won't get suspicious - btw?? Sort of remember
that from "The Highlander" movie. Don't think one can keep on
living w/ one name and addr for 2,000 yrs, not getting old w/out
your neighbours and coworkers noticing, right?
(Jk Vaid 5:44pm October 29, 2012)

I think suspense and paranormal mix is great of course I think any kind of mix especially with paranormal is great........
(Larena Hubble 7:04pm October 29, 2012)

A little suspense is always good reading for me--no matter what the genre!!!
(Barbara Studer 7:41pm October 29, 2012)

I always a read that mixes things up. I want to be caught up in what I'm reading not feeling like I may have read this before.
(Patti Paonessa 9:19pm October 29, 2012)

I love paranormal and suspense.
(Jannielu de Paz 11:23pm October 29, 2012)

I love the mix of suspense and paranormal, but also read romantic suspense and PNR. But I also like some humor in the mix too!
Thanks for the giveaway.
(Karen Prentice 1:19am October 30, 2012)

I love to read about vampires and the paranormal! Thanks for the giveaway!
(Christine Mead 6:52am October 30, 2012)

Thank you all for coming by! Sorry to be so late to the game,
but I was away and then Hurricane Sandy hit. We lost power
until this weekend and am just starting to catch up. I hope
you will enjoy KISSED BY A VAMPIRE and the future books in THE
CALLING series.
