SINS OF THE FLESH
This has all the makings of a great paranormal romance -- a beautiful heroine, a dark, sexy and protective hero and a compelling and relevant subplot -- yet it falls just short of greatness. A master of creating tension, Pineiro also writes gripping fight scenes, but one can't help but feel there's more to learn about the characters than what's presented. They feel like people we want to know, but we just don't get the chance.
Mick Carrera has been hired to hunt and bring Caterina back, dead or alive. But when he meets her he's clear about only one thing, the woman needs help. Not able to believe she's capable of what she's accused of, he hides her and hunts down answers. Will he be able to protect this amazing woman he's grown to love? (FOREVER, Nov., 356 pp., $6.99)
