Customer Reviews

The story is mesmerizing and the sensual relationship is believable as well.
A very unique take on the paranormal/fantasy elements that she's added to her book.
N. Medina
Though the ending leaves strings dangling, the story halts in the perfect spot.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Adam Bruno was six-years-old when Salvatore Bruno found him in the desert. Now, twenty years later, Adam recalls little of the event beyond the death and fire that had surrounded him. To this day, Adam feels it had been some sort of attack, yet he can think of nothing to support the feeling. But Adam is not ordinary and he wonders if his unique abilities could have been why it had happened. Adam can shapeshift and create energy. He has a natural affinity with lightning. Adam is the founder and CEO of SolTerra Systems. The company is dedicated to developing alternative energies. While doing so, perhaps Adam would come to understand and master his powers.

Roberta "Bobbie" Carrera is home from Iraq. Though Bobbie has survived her injuries, she is still undergoing physical therapy. No longer in service, she wants nothing more than to put the past behind her and have a normal life. When she sees Adam being kidnapped, Bobbie does not hesitate to help him ward off his attackers. Together they begin fighting mysterious paranormal enemies.

Unknown to Adam, two sets of hunters search for him. The Light Hunters honor all life and relieve suffering. They draw energy from nature. Adam's biological parents are Quinchus (leaders) of their clan and have never ceased searching for their son. They now believe Adam to be their lost child. The Shadow Hunters draw energy from other sentient creatures. Humans are vast, but finite, and do not give up much energy with their meager life force. Therefore, the dark ones prefer to drain the life energies of Light Hunters, especially those as powerful as Adam.

Together, Adam and Bobbie are a force to be reckoned with. But the duo must figure out who they can safely trust and the last thing Adam expects is a betrayal by someone close to him.

Wow, all I can say I is I am so happy Caridad Piniero has decided to continue this paranormal/science oriented series. I just love them! Her first two offerings were Sins of the Flesh and Stronger Than Sin.

All of the backdrop take place in the beach areas of the New Jersey Shore and surround the members of the Carrera Family. First we had Mick Carrera, a strong handsome police officer and his now HEA Caterina Shaw. During the first book he needed assistance with Caterina and what had been injected into her bloodstream. Thankfully, his sister, Dr. Liliana Carrera, was able to help.

Dr Carrera was the star in the second book Stronger Than Sin. She was brought in to take care of football great Jesse Bradford, who was also found to be with a disorder that came from what was injected into his blood. Both of these were not quite paranormal, more scientific, but were great stories.

In the Prologue of Lost we are in the mind of a young child in the midst of shouting and fear. He is saved by a man, who brings him to a safe place. He has no recollection of who he is, or what his name is. Now we are brought 20 years later, where we meet Selina and Kellen. We are not sure what they represent, although they are still searching for their lost son.

Lost has switched gears a mite with Roberta (Bobbie) Carrera, who had been terribly injured, just home from Iraq. We meet her waiting for her brother who works for Adam Bruno and their meeting is magnetic for them both. The new path our author takes us on, is less scientific and closer to paranormal, but the results are the same....What a Book!!!

I felt so sad for the child in the prologue and then even worse after we discovered that it was Adam. His loneliness is an assault to your senses.

Format: Kindle Edition
The Lost, Sin Hunters series, Book #1

Author: Caridad Pineiro

Synopsis: Adam Bruno is no ordinary millionaire. The heir to an ancient race possessing a dark, powerful magic, he can shapeshift and create energy. His gifts make him a living weapon and have forced him to live in seclusion. But now an inhuman force hunts down Adam-just when he finds someone who makes him feel more human than he ever imagined possible . . .
Home from combat in Iraq, Bobbie Carerra wants only peace, yet soon joins Adam in a terrifying battle against paranormal enemies who hide in plain sight. She's drawn to his strength of mind and body; he's attracted to her courage and intoxicating energy. Their scorching passion can either transport them to the heights of ecstasy or-if Adam's powers rage out of control-destroy them. But when an invisible brotherhood tightens its nets and someone Adam trusts betrays him, only a heartrending decision can save them.

Our Review [By LITERAL ADDICTION's Pack Alpha-Michelle L Olson]:

Since readers look to reviews to steer them in a direction, I'm going to give it to you straight and from the heart. I'm a big Caridad Pineiro fan! I devoured her entire Calling series in I think 3 sittings, but I was very apprehensive about this book. Every time I picked it up and read the synopsis I'd give myself a little mental `Eh, I don't know...' and set it back down, only to pick it up again the minute I was ready for a new book. I'm a paranormal junkie, and there seemed to be enough of that outlined in the blurb, so I was having troubles pinning down exactly what my problem was. Finally I took a deep breath and just jumped in. Know what? I finished it in 2 sittings and that was only because I had to go to work and put it down.
