Alternative Worlds: "The second Sin Hunters romantic urban fantasy is a terrific tale of forbidden love between beloved enemies. The cast is fully developed whether they are Victoria's BFFs or clan members, but especially the protagonists. Fast-paced, Caridad Pineiro provides a wonderful west side of the Hudson paranormal romance."

From the Author
Denied my broody Heathcliff and doomed Catherine, I turned my attentions to what some might say were an odd mix: Shakespeare and Ian Fleming.
It's safe to say that those choices as a young reader were later reflected in what I wrote, especially in THE CLAIMED, the second book in the Sin Hunters series.
Action. Adventure. Angst. I've incorporated all those elements that I love into this tale of a determined and broody alpha hero, Christopher Sombrosa, and a woman who is the absolute wrong choice for him, Victoria Johnson.
So why is Victoria not the woman for Christopher? Think Romeo and Juliet, Capulet and Montague.
Victoria is destined to be the leader of her Light Hunter clan while Christopher is not only one of the Dark Ones, he is likewise supposed to assume command of his Shadow Hunter people.
Add to the mix some rather nefarious villains in the form of Christopher's father and ex-fiancée and the betrayal of someone dear to Victoria, and I think you'll find THE CLAIMED will keep you turning pages until the very end.
I am very glad to say, however, that despite the hopeless Catherine, Juliet, and assorted Bond girls who could never win James's heart, there is a path to a new and exciting place for Christopher and Victoria.
I hope you will enjoy their fight for a better tomorrow for not only themselves, but their race of Hunters.
