Caridad Pineiro Summer Fun!
Author Guest / July 14, 2017

Fireworks and Fun for you in July! My favorite time of year down the Jersey Shore is the 4th of July! I love seeing the parades and sitting on the beach watching the fireworks. It’s such a lovely time of year to be able to just hang out, enjoy the weather and friends, and of course, read a good book while sitting on the beach. Here’s a photo for you from this year as we all sit and wait to see the fireworks in Asbury Park, New Jersey. Good news! I am so excited that Publishers Weekly picked One Summer Night as a Top 10 Romance! One Summer Night is the first book in the At the Shore series which is very near and dear to my heart as I get to share one of my very favorite places – the Jersey Shore – and show you how it’s nothing like that show that shall not be named. LOL! If you’d like to get a sneak peek at One Summer Night and the At the Shore series, I’ve been doing some Behind the Scenes you can see by clicking here.

Spotlight on Caridad Pineiro
Author Spotlight / November 7, 2010

Dear Friends, REDEMPTION. The dictionary defines it as “atonement for guilt; deliverance from sin.”  That somehow seems an appropriate way to describe Jesse Bradford’s challenge in STRONGER THAN SIN. Can Jesse redeem himself for his past actions?  Is love powerful enough motivation for Jesse to become a better man? In STRONGER THAN SIN, Jesse’s sinful ways came about as a result of his losing his way to the cult of celebrity after becoming a superstar football player.  Sadly, this is something with which we can all identify since it seems that all too often we hear a news report about a professional athlete who has gotten in trouble. Despite his faults, however, Jesse is a man capable of great love who just needs to find the hero within him once more. From the moment that Mick’s sister, Dr. Liliana Carrera, walked onto the scene in SINS OF THE FLESH, I knew she had to get her own story. I fell in love with her caring, loyalty to her brother and her inner strength. There was no doubt in my mind that any story where she was the heroine would be emotionally compelling and filled with passion.  And there was no…

Caridad Pineiro | How Do You Manage Your Time
Uncategorized / December 7, 2009

Just hear those sleigh bells jingling, ring ting tingling too. Come on, it’s lovely weather for a sleigh ride together with you . . . Lovely weather? It’s freezing! Sleigh rides. Bah humbug! Okay, maybe not. I do love the holidays, but for a writer it’s probably one of the hardest times of the year because of all the distractions. Especially when you need to be in a dark frame of mind and all around you people are being cheery. To read more of HOW DO YOU MANAGE YOUR TIME please click here.

Caridad Pineiro | Creating Characters
Uncategorized / March 4, 2009

First I’d like to thank Fresh Fiction for giving me an opportunity to chat with you! I’m Caridad Pineiro, a USA Today and NY Times Bestseller who has written of over twenty novels. My current releases are HONOR CALLS and FURY CALLS from the popular THE CALLING Vampire series from Silhouette Nocturne. In November 2009 I will have my first paranormal romantic suspense single title release – SINS OF THE FLESH – from Grand Central Publishing. I love writing and creating characters that stay with readers long after the book is on the shelf. The plot for FURY CALLS, my March 2009 release from Silhouette Nocturne, definitely has two of my most interesting characters and the plot of the story is driven by the conflicts of the two heroes – Blake and Meghan. Blake, in particular, helped define the nature of the villain and also, forged the redemption of one of THE CALLING’s more interesting Big Bads – Foley, the owner of the Blood Bank. Blake has actually become one of my favorite characters of all time. Since he popped onto the scene in TEMPTATION CALLS in October 2005, he has been hanging out in the world of THE CALLING,…
