Guest Post by Caridad PiñeiroThank you so much for having me with you today to share my new paranormal romance release, THE LOST, which is the first book in the Sin Hunter series.
I had a great time developing the mythology for the Sin Hunters as well as checking out all the real locations where the novels will be set. If you want to see some of those locations, you can visit my Facebook Fan page at www.facebook.com/caridad.author.
I’m a history fan and I used a lot of that to create the mythology for the Hunters. For example, I had read a book about the conquest of Mexico and Peru and I used what happened to the indigenous people in the Americas when the Conquistadors landed to develop the background for the Hunters. There were lots of illnesses to which the native populations didn’t have immunities.
When the Hunters minge amongst the humans who were sickened by the Conquistadors, the Hunters come down with smallpox and that changes their race forever. The Hunters are a race of energy gatherers and because of the smallpox, some of the Hunters lose their abilities to take in energy. That creates a race of Light and Shadow Hunters who will find themselves in a civil war.
You see the first hints of that civil war in THE LOST because Adam has “lost” his parents as a result of a battle between Light and Shadow Hunters. Adam has amazing powers and is one of the Light Hunters. In THE LOST, both Light and Shadow Hunters will try to capture Adam, creating conflict in his life just when he has finally found a woman who makes him feel more human than he ever imagined.
Bobbie Carrera is that woman and she is a unique individual. A Marine hero home from battle, Bobbie is physically and emotionally wounded, but as much as she doesn’t want to be in another war, she will not run from danger to the man she is coming to love.
I hope you’ve liked that behind the scenes look at THE LOST. Thanks again for having me here!
About Sin Hunters Series
I want to thank all of you who have been writing to tell me how much you’ve been loving the Carrera family, as well as enjoying the towns along the Jersey Shore where the SINS series was set.
With THE LOST, I’m introducing a much darker paranormal series I’m calling SIN HUNTERS. The stories are still set along the Jersey Shore and you’ll have the beloved Carreras, but now you’ll also get to meet an exciting new race of people: The Light and Shadow Hunters.
Why the change? There was something about Bobbie Carrera, the heroine in THE LOST, that needed something different and something very special. Someone very special. Bobbie is an Iraq war veteran and she’s home from battle, but wounded both physically and emotionally. She’s busy trying to put her world back together and the last thing she needs is more conflict in her life.
But I’m a bad girl, you know. I love to challenge my characters into facing their most extreme hurts because that only makes their happiness that much sweeter. I think you love that as well because there is nothing more uplifting than seeing how love can truly conquer all.
Bobbie’s challenge comes in the form of sexy millionaire Adam Bruno. Adam is different from any man she has ever met and Bobbie feels an immediate connection to him. There’s just one problem: Adam has no idea who he really is and why he possesses the ability to gather energy. That ability allows him to do a myriad of things, shapeshifting, to traveling at super speed, to wielding energy and light like weapons. But those powers are challenging Adam, because as they become more powerful, the also grow harder to control and deadly.
Enter Bobbie Carrera. Bobbie brings peace to Adam’s soul. Adam feels lost in the human world, but in Bobbie’s arms he finds love, acceptance and the possibility for a future he had never imagined.
But before he can reach that future, he must deal with the present, and that means battling the evil Shadow Hunters and facing the shocking truth about his real identity.
I hope you will enjoy the Sin Hunters series. Look for THE CLAIMED in May 2012 which will feature someone you meet in THE LOST. Not going to spill as to who it is just yet, but keep in mind I just love stories of redemption….
Thank you all for your continued support.
Also, many thanks to our military men, women and their families for safeguarding our Liberty and our country.
THE LOST is dedicated to you for all the sacrifices you make on our behalf. God bless you and keep you safe.
"Pineiro's new series will excite readers, new and old...Her characters and red-hot writing had me looking for the nearest cold shower. THE LOST is an excellent beginning to a new series that will have readers counting the days until the second Sin Hunters book is released."~ 4 Stars RT BookReviews
“An excellent romance story and the paranormal aspects really held me captive. I truly loved that the heroine was a war veteran and she gets a excellent HEA. If you’re one for danger, betrayal, adventure and romance this maybe a book for you.”~Laurie Bitten by Paranormal Romance
