It’s finally out! The Deep Woods Book Two: Night of Air, has been released by Cobblestone Press! Sweet! I’m so thrilled that the second book in this trilogy has arrived as I think it’s some of my best romance work to date. It’s also the hottest trilogy that I’ve ever written!
There are two good things to keep in mind: I wrote the whole trilogy together and submitted it together, so the wait won’t be too long. AND the trilogy freaking rocks. Magic, lore, possibly the hottest book I have EVER written, which means that this trilogy as a whole is off the charts.
I mean, really? What more could you want for $0.99? Here’s a bit about the novella Night of Air:
It is the year 1692.
Nicolas has been able to experience a dream come true, finally having the man he most wants: his best friend Jackson.
However, there is a price. Nicolas is to be inducted into an order of men responsible for protecting the earth. While Nicolas is able to lie with Jackson and be his mate, he must complete a task before his magic can take hold completely within him.
He must have sex with the rest of the men who protect the world.
Will Nicolas give himself willingly to others, having only recently found his heart’s desire?

You can get your copy of The Deep Woods Book Two: Night of Air here:
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. I have always loved Stacia ever since she showed up in the Calling Series and have always wanted her to find a true love to melt her cold heart. I wondered what it would be like to have her as a heroine when she’s been a supporting character throughout the series. I’m so thrilled that Stacia got her own book and it was well worth the wait to see her in the spotlight.
Stacia is a very unconventional heroine and meets her match in Alex Garcia. Both characters meshed really well for me and the romance between them moved naturally with no forced moments. Instead, the love affair between them is genuinely touching and wonderful to watch as it unfolds.
Not only is Kissed by a Vampire incredibly well written, it flows so smoothly that you’ll be done the book before you realize it. It’s filled with characters that live beyond the printed page as you’ll carry them with you long after you turn the last page.
The plot was thrilling, the romance hot and spicy, the action fantastic. Kissed by a Vampire has everything you could want and then some. I loved Kissed by a Vampire so much that I hope Stacia and Alex get another book to themselves so that we can see how their relationship develops over time.
Caridad Pineiro has written an incredible tale of betrayal, love and redemption. It hooked me from the first page and held me spellbound until the last page. In fact, I’d say that it’s her best book in the series so far and I loved every gorgeous moment.
If you read one romance this winter, read Kissed by a Vampire. It’ll heat up your night and warm your heart.
Halloween is my favourite day of the year. Seriously. Its better than my birthday, Christmas, Yule, or Easter. It’s the only day where its alright to pretend you’re someone else without anyone thinking you’re crazy. And you get chocolate!
To celebrate, why not get yourself a copy of Freaky Flashes, which includes my flash fiction piece titled Reaping Darkness. I’m so thrilled to be included in this anthology with a multitude of talented authors.
I’m so thrilled that I have five copies to give away! Leave a comment below by midnight October 31st in order to be considered. I’ll draw five names and the winners will get their copy tomorrow!

From – Elementary starring Jonny Lee Miller and Lucy Liu
I’ve always loved Sherlock Holmes.
Not just the novels and stories themselves, but the character. The larger than life presence that exudes confidence, albeit in a non-traditional way.
I haven’t seen the Sherlock Holmes movies with Robert Downey Jr, but I suppose I will at some point. What I am watching now is the show Elementary. I watch it on my iPad through the Global app. I wasn’t sure about the show at first, but I love Lucy Liu in anything she does, so I checked it out.
I’ve followed it so far since its first show and, I have to say, it’s a very smart show. Lucy Liu is playing the very down to Earth Joan Watson in a tone of performance I’m not used to from her. She’s playing the straight man to Jonny Lee Miller’s very eccentric (and very troubled) Sherlock Holmes. They play beautifully off of each other and never lose that inner fire both of the characters from the books had.
I have to say that I actually look forward to watching the show. I have to watch it a day later than those that have cable, but that’s okay-it’s worth the wait. The show is incredibly full of depth, character, intelligence and charm. Think of a CSI without all the flashing blue light, add in an on screen connection that works really well and add a dash of some very smart and witty writing and you’ve got yourself a winner.
The music and the way the show is shot work beautifully to enhance the story, which is invariably a twisted little puzzle of some sort. It also usually gives the viewer a few lovely little twists in plot that take the story to a new level.
Either way, if you want something to watch on those cold fall and winter nights that are heading our way, make Elementary a show to watch (oh, and Survivor, Go On, Kitchen Nightmares. I also can’t wait for Celebrity Apprentice. Just saying).
Check out the trailer of Elementary and enjoy. The show rocks.
