Author Interview with Caridad Pineiro

Please help me welcome Cardid Pinero the author of Nocturnal Whispers to a Buckeye Girl Reads! I loved her book, (my review) and am so happy she could be here today! 

New York Times and USA Today bestselling paranormal and romantic suspense author Caridad Pineiro wrote her first novel in the fifth grade when her teacher assigned a project - to write a book for a class lending library.  Bitten by the writing bug, Caridad continued with her passion for the written word through high school, college and law school.  In 1999, Caridad's first novel was released and over a decade later, Caridad is the author of thirty published novels and novellas.  When not writing, Caridad is an attorney, wife and mother to an aspiring writer and fashionista.

Will we see more of Kate and Lord Alec Wright in future books? I am currently discussing the possibility of doing a novella series with some of these characters, so I hope we’ll be able to see more of them, as well as more of Rey and Paola from AMAZON AWAKENING.

What is your favorite thing about the hero in the book?  I love that he grows from being a selfish, almost childish man when he steals the mummy’s child to a caring and responsible man who is willing to sacrifice himself to right a wrong.

What was the hardest part about writing scenes with the villain in them?  The hardest part in this story is that I truly sympathized with the villainess and wanted her to be successful with what she wanted.  I hope readers will feel the same way.

Do you have a favorite quote from the book?  If I had a favorite quote I’m not sure I could share it publicly since this is an erotic paranormal romance!  LOL!

How high would you describe the heat level between Kate and Alec?  On a scale of 10, it’s an 11.  There is an immediate attraction between them because of the mummy’s curse, but it quickly heats up because of the feelings that develop between them.

What’s the one thing we should know about Nocturnal Whispers? Alec is sexy, mysterious and complex.  He’s the kind of man who you don’t know will do the right thing and when he does, you are totally eager to root for him to have his happily-ever-after.

If you could have a playlist for Kate and Alec what would it be?  That’s a tough one since I don’t listen to music while I write, I watch movies.  So if I could have a movie playlist, it would be THE MUMMY, ROMANCING THE STONE and RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK.

 For over a century, Lord Alec Wright has been condemned to wander the Earth searching for a mummy he stole from an Egyptian tomb. Cursed to see all his loved ones die, he also must endure the spirit that tortures him with unrelenting arousal every night until he atones for his crime. After years of searching, Alec has finally found what he seeks--but museum curator Kate Morton stands his way. The mummy's spirit is affecting her as well, driving her wild with desire. It is the perfect opportunity for Alec to seduce Kate and obtain the artifact. But in his quest to end his torment, will Alec wind up losing his heart?
