Editorial Reviews

Review

RT BOOK REVIEWS, (4 1/2 stars):  "It's quite interesting how Pineiro manages to separate Stacia's vampire nature from her kinder human instincts in this compelling read with sexy characters and an exciting storyline."

FRESH FICTION:  "KISSED BY A VAMPIRE is filled with action, passionate encounters and deep emotions that will grip the reader from page one and not let go. Alex and Stacia are at first glance a diverse couple but if you look deeper, as I believe the author intends, you will find two lonely people who find what they need in each other. KISSED BY A VAMPIRE is another Harlequin Nocturne winner."

THE READING CAFE:  "KISSED BY THE VAMPIRE is a wonderful and emotional storyline of suspense and romance. Betrayal by someone you love is one of the hardest things to overcome, and it is no different in the world for an ancient vampire who believed that loved had passed her by. And to be accepted for the person you are, is one of the most surreal events in a long and lonely existence. Caridad writes an amazing story where the HEA is well deserved for everyone involved."

HARRIET KLAUSNER,  #1 Hall of Fame Reviewer :  "The latest action-packed Calling paranormal romance (see Fury Calls and Blood Calls) is a fast-paced romantic urban fantasy starring an elder vampire and a DEA human. Fans will enjoy their Miami joyride as they team up in love to rescue the girls and take down the vicious criminals."

CATAROMANCE:  "The Calling series is one of the most creative paranormal series ever written, and I want many more books in the future. KISSED BY A VAMPIRE is emotionally sensual with surprising feelings of lusty desire."

From the Author

Vampire elder Stacia craves something she's never had: true love.  Especially when every immortal around her in Manhattan seems to be pairing off with someone, leaving her more alone than ever.  Needing a change, Stacia heads to Miami only to find something unexpected: a chance for the happily-ever-after she thought was impossible.
 
You can read a free prequel featuring the sexy and outrageous Stacia here: harlequin.com/articlepage.html?articleId=1262&chapter=1
 
KISSED BY A VAMPIRE is part of THE CALLING Vampire series.  Look for new books in Feb 2013 as THE CALLING is REBORN.

I was provided a courtesy copy of "Kissed by a Vampire" from the author in exchange for an honest review.
First, off, let me apologize, ahead of time since I wanted this review out sooner since I was provided an advance reading copy, but due to not being around any WiFi services I was not able to. =(
My Mom lives out in the country and does not have Internet and that is where I'm currently visiting, so I'm at Starbucks to make sure my review goes live today. (And that is near University of Illinois) (Needless to say, I'm having withdrawals not being able to get on the Internet)
"Kissed by a Vampire" is about Stacia and Alex Garcia.
Stacia is an elder vampire and she is now in Miami to get away from her former life in New York. She ends up meeting up with someone she never thought she would see again, Alex Garcia. A DEA Agent who she helped saves from death. Stacia has always been alone for years and never though she would fall in love with again, especially someone who is human.
Alex Garcia has had nightmares since he's near death experience and he has always had dreams about the beautiful Stacia. He never thought he would see her again in person. He thought, maybe he dreamt his experience with her. He cannot help, but be intrigued by her, but he has no idea that vampires exist.
Alex is going undercover at a club that girls are disappearing at because one of his friends has asked him to find his daughter, Andrea that went missing. That is when Alex comes across Stacia. It is up to Alex to undercover the missing girls and Stacia never thought she would help him find them.
Stacia is trying everything not to see Alex, but he has a pull on her and she'll find herself not being able to resist the handsome Latino, who she vampire kissed him years ago.

Kissed by a Vampire by Caridad Pineiro
The Calling/The Reborn Vampire Novel Series
Alex Garcia is a DEA undercover agent. After a job in New York gone wrong, he almost died there and it left him with odd nightmares of a beautiful woman who also had the face of a demon. Just as he gets the okay to go back to work in Miami, Dan McAnn, a former agent, calls to ask Alex to find his missing daughter, Andrea. What he didn't expect was to see the woman from his dreams a while he searched for the missing woman.

Stacia is a two thousand year old vampire elder, very powerful and very lonely. So many of her fellow vampires in New York were finding love that she decided to escape to Miami. Stacia didn't believe herself capable of loving someone let alone of having any humanity left in her. All that changes when she meets the man who's life she saved a year ago. A man who puts duty above all compared to herself who lives only for her own needs.

There are quite a few books within this series and this book hints to things that happened in a previous book, Darkness Calls, but it is still stand alone. If you enjoy series than you may want to read the previous books in order to know the whole story. A unique vampire tale on how love can revive a dead heart and change can come no matter how old you are....even if you are two thousand years old.

Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Pack Alpha - Michelle L. Olson:

I LOVE The Calling series! It's easily one of my favorite vampire series out there. When I discovered it, I devoured every book that was out there in a 3 day span I think, and then... I waited. Hoping that Caridad would be putting out another book in the series soon. I finally got my wish!

I was fortunate enough to win a signed copy of this book and was ecstatic to say the least. I've waited a long time for Stacia to find the perfect guy & get her happily ever after and it was wonderful to see it all come together.

Alex and Stacia met in a previous book of the series and in an unusual way. They went their separate ways, but even though life carried on, neither of them really forgot the other. When fate intervenes and they both end up back in Miami years later, things heat up in more ways and in more places than the beach, and they both find in each other something worth holding on to.

Alex is a fabulous hero. He's super sexy, ambitious, honorable and alpha and he knows when it's not smart to push a woman too far. He's also incredibly romantic (at least he was to me) and I loved watching him fight for the girl.

Stacia is one of the oldest vampires around. She's powerful beyond believe, stubborn, independent, confident, and yet vulnerable. Her turning broke something in her that has never really healed and throughout The Calling series you find her doing things that you know SHE knows she shouldn't be doing, and yet... she does. When she meets Alex again she tries to quickly put that wall back up and keep her distance because it's like she doesn't think she deserves to be loved, but Alex isn't having that and brick by brick that wall is broken down.

Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
As a two thousand year old vampire elder, Stacia is haunted by her mortal past.

Though Stacia finds pleasure and arousal in the taking of blood, she also knows that she can't let herself love again. Betrayed by the only man she ever loved, she has carried the hurt of the betrayal for two thousand years and won't open her heart to anyone.

That all changes when she meets the mortal DEA Agent Alex Garcia.

For years now, Alex has been plagued with nightmares of a demon. She comes to him in his dreams as she came to him years ago, while he was on the brink of death. While working on another case, he is stunned to come face to face with the demon from his dreams.

Alex spots Stacia in a local club, The Widget, while working on a case to find five missing women. He is shocked to see his demon in the flesh. For her part, Stacia can't place Alex but cannot deny that the connection between them is incredibly strong.

As the connection and attraction grows between them, Alex and Stacia each deal with their own demons: Stacia believes that she is not worthy of love, that no one could love a vampire. For his part, Alex believes that vampires can't possibly exist.

However, when Stacia reveals her vampire side to Alex, both of them must deal with their demons if either of them will have a chance at love.

I love everything that Caridad Pineiro writes, but I especially love her vampire Calling Series. It's been a long time since the last book in the series, Fury Calls, was published in 2009. There have, of course, been vampire novels aplenty since then but few reach the caliber and beauty that Pineiro gives her vampires.

Kissed by a Vampire is absolutely flat out incredible.
