Caridad Pineiro is the NY Times bestselling author of over twenty-six paranormal romance and romantic suspense novels and novellas. Her latest release is THE FIFTH KINGDOM, a romantic suspense from Carina Press.
“I’m always writing!” says Caridad. “Writing is what I love to do, especially when I can connect with a reader on an emotional level.”
In THE FIFTH KINGDOM, CIA Agent Bill Santana investigates the disappearance of an American archeologist after she discovers an important relic. Santana believes she was kidnapped by a fringe group with ties to terrorist activities and seeks assistance from the woman’s ex-husband and daughter. The daughter, Deanna Vasquez, is initially reluctant to help because her mother abandoned her 15 years earlier. Understanding the importance to national security, however, Deanna agrees. As the race is on to find the terrorists, Bill and Deanna are emotionally drawn together by the common wound of being abandoned by someone they loved. This action-packed story, set in Mexico, is also sexy and romantic. Pineiro’s first-hand research in Mexico enabled her to incorporate authentic detail into her storyline.
And what a storyline!
“Above all, I have a willingness to try different venues with my writing,” says Caridad. This willingness to explore new venues is not only evident in the variety of her subject matter but in her ability to research and inform her writing with credible backgrounds and characters — something that benefits her publishers and thrills her readers.
Caridad explains that writing “is storytelling, not something learned out of a manual, but found in your voice as a writer, a voice that comes from who you are as a person. Ever since I wrote my first story in 5th grade, I knew I wanted to be a writer!”
And write she does!
In addition to print, Caridad’s books are available as ebooks. “Many of my readers are digitally orientated,” she says, “and totally responsive!”
Caridad serves up her share of thrills. She is lovely, entertaining, full of insight and humor, and she lives in New York…what else is there?
Next up for Caridad Pineiro is THE LOST, her first book in the new SIN HUNTERS paranormal romance series, which will be released in August. October brings a treat for vampire lovers when A VAMPIRE FOR CHRISTMAS, with Caridad’s novella WHEN HERALD ANGELS SING, is released. And in 2012, Caridad returns to her popular THE CALLING vampire series.
