Editorial Reviews


From Rachel, a reader:  Amazon Awakening is a sultry tale of two guardians of a beautiful Adam & Eve type world. Paola Lopes doesn't know it at first, but Ray Peralta, a fellow guardian, is going to take her on a grand adventure of lust and exploration. This is definitely a book you won't want to miss. If you are a lover of romance and mysticism this is the book for you.

From the Author

So many of you enjoyed the rainforest setting from my novella in the MOON FEVER anthology that I decided to return to that locale for AMAZON AWAKENING.
I loved dragging by-the-book New York City lawyer Paola Lopes to the wilds of the rainforest and into the arms of Rey Peralta, the very sexy Guardian who has been the right hand man of Paola's grandmother.  Rey knows it's time for Paola to take up the reins as the Priestess of the Guardians, a very special race of people who are able to travel to and from a sacred space buried deep in the rainforest.  A space some say might even be the Garden of Eden before man despoiled it.
This is an erotic and sexy story about Paola's journey to accept her role as a leader and to savor her sexual awakening with Rey.  I hope you will enjoy the intense heat factor in AMAZON AWAKENING during the coming cold winter nights.

This is a very well written story that gives the readers plenty of twists so that they will hate to put this one down. The world comes alive as the reader learns more and gets more into the story.

I have read a couple of things by Caridad Pineiro and it never fails to amaze me how unique her stories are. This one is no different.

Paola is a lawyer in New York. She has a great career and the possibility for advance. She feels she is content with this until recently she started to feel like something was missing. Then Rey shows up trying to talk her into returning to her family's home in Brazil. She decides to go visit her grandmother for a short time, until she gets there, and everything changes.

I loved the story line. It was so incredibly unique that I couldn't help but get sucked into it. Both characters were well developed and I liked them. The smexin was smokin hot and will definitely melt your panties. I thought the story flowed well and Ms Piniero has a way of describing things so you can picture them perfectly. This story read like a short story therefore is seemed to move kind of quickly but during the story she made reference to that and explained that there was a natural pull and comfort that the characters felt while together. That, to me, makes the fast speed seem real and make sense. If you are looking for a hot, unique, short story that will suck you in, this is the story for you.

Paola Lopes has a successful life but when Rey Peralta walks in with his summons she is taken aback. Rey has come to bring Paola to her destiny. Her family has always been Guardians of a sacred place and it is time for her to take her place as Priestess of the Guardians. It is his job to persuade her to come back to the rainforest with him and show her the ways of her people but all he can think about is showing her to his bed. Can Rey convince Paola to embrace her destiny and him?

Amazon Awakening is a sultry romance with an exotic locale and a fiery couple. Rey and Paola light up the rainforest in this sexy story. There is a lot of story packed into this novella. Caridad Pineiro weaves an enchanting tale. I can't wait to find out more about these characters and the mysterious sacred place that they are protecting.
