The second book in the exciting new SIN HUNTERS paranormal romance series
RT Book Reviews – 4 Stars: “Second in the Sin Hunters series, The Claimed will not disappoint fans new or old. The Light Hunters and Shadow Hunters are mortal enemies and this paranormal Romeo and Juliet romance with an edge will keep readers intrigued. Just like her characters, Pineiro’s books are smart, sensual and irresistible.”
Night Owl Book Reviews – Top Pick 4.5 Stars: “Welcome back to the Sin Hunters. In this second installment sparks fly and magic flares. I enjoyed this one as much as I did the first, The Lost. I’m looking forward to the next one in this world as Pineiro has drawn me in.”
Reading Diva – 4.5 out of 5 stars: “The Claimed has everything I like and expect in an urban fantasy/paranormal read. Love, kick-ass action, drama and awesome villains and of course steamy love making. The Claimed is a nonstop action pack story that will keep you glued to the pages. I can’t help but think of this series as a mixture of Night Huntress and Nightwalkers (2 of my favorite series/authors Jeaniene Frost & Jacquelyn Frank)…The story is well written and the plot will keep you well entertained. There is not time for boredom just kick-ass action. The battle between good and evil is taken to a whole new level. The Light Hunters and Shadow Hunters are on a fight to the death.”
My Book Addiction and More: “THE CLAIMED by Caridad Pineiro is an exciting paranormal romance. Book 2 in the “Sin Hunters” series,but can be read as a stand alone. See, “The Lost”. I enjoy this author’s works,she knows how to draw in the reader with her powerful love story along with the mystery and suspense.”
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.”
HUNTRESS REVIEWS, Reviewed by Detra Fitch – FOUR STARS: “A fantastic addition to the Sin Hunters series… Stories by Caridad Piñeiro will grab you by the throat, making it difficult for you to breathe.”
Single Titles.com – “The love story in THE CLAIMED is enchantingly romantic, while the paranormal aspects are particularly creative.…Caridad Piñeiro masterfully creates innovative paranormal worlds. The supernatural characters in the Sin Hunters series are extremely distinctive in their inherited skills, and how they use their natural abilities is cleverly shown in THE CLAIMED. . . THE CLAIMED is imaginative paranormal at its best, where the characters are genuine with affecting emotions.”
Paranormal Romance Guild – 5 Stars – “Ms. Pineiro the story has everything you could want in a love story and More. We have lovers, villains, treachery, pain, bloodshed and perhaps towards the end another love story in the making???? . . . .You have left me breathless!”
4 Stars from PURE TEXTUALITY: “(A) fun ride down Urban Fantasy lane … The character and world is interesting, and I look forward to more.”
Bad Ass Book Reviews: “I enjoyed this love story. It was beautifully done. The relationship built up slowly as Victoria and Christopher learned about each other. The love scenes were well done and I loved the descriptions of how their auras blended. The battle scenes were exciting and I was at the edge of my seat throughout…I’ll be looking for the next book in the series.”
The Book Vixen: “Paranormal fans looking for a new series will like this book as I did. I will go back to read book one in the series and look for future installments…”
Victoria Johnson loves her life. She’s her own boss in a quaint beachside town, and has great friends who keep her grounded. If only they knew who she really is: an heiress to an ancient race who possesses astonishing superhuman powers. It’s Victoria’s duty to restore her clan of Light Hunters to their former glory by choosing the perfect mate. In Christopher Sombrosa, she just may have found him. Strong, smart, and successful, Christopher exudes a powerful energy. Their connection is sensual, irresistible-and forbidden.
A member of the Shadow Hunter clan, Christopher has defied his own father to lead his people away from affliction and violence. Yet he cannot ignore his duty to carry on his ancient bloodline. Stunningly beautiful and brimming with an erotic life force, Victoria is everything Christopher ever hoped for in a mate . . . but as a Light Hunter, she’s his mortal enemy. Together, they could unite their warring tribes. But murderous factions on both sides don’t want peace-and they’ll stop at nothing to keep light and darkness apart forever . . .
