Most women dream of being swept off their feet by a man — not whisked away by a devastatingly handsome vampire. But for Connie Morales, Hadrian’s tempting kisses make her long to deliver the gift of life to a man she thinks he has no soul . . .
The Best Reviews: “Caridad Pineiro writes a wonderful Christmas paranormal romance starring two appealing lead characters. Sub-genre fans will appreciate spending the HOLIDAY WITH A VAMPIRE (or two).”
Cataromance, 5 stars: “Caridad Pineiro breaths life into her engaging characters with sharp wit and an original story filled with creativity. Regardless of the circumstances surrounding them, the thoughts and words of Hadrian and Connie are sincere, making them more endearing as each page is turned. Though there are frequently lighter moments in the story, numerous scenes are moving from the genuine anguish depicted by their frank declarations. Ms. Pineiro has created another memorable vampire story to stir the imagination of her readers. “Fate Calls” is a magical Christmas story with spirited characters and an enjoyable holiday romance.”
Romantic Times: “Annoyed by the holiday bell-ringer raising money across the street from his home, vampire Hadrian Aurelius kidnaps Connie Morales. But Hadrian gets more than he bargained for . . . . “Fate Calls” has strong, well-developed characters. Hadrian is particularly compelling.”
Library Journal: “Although Halloween is likely the first holiday that springs to mind when vampires are mentioned, this duo of sensual novellas gives a new twist to the vampire mystique as it is tempered by the magic of Christmas and love. . . A vampire from fourth-century Rome is annoyed by a bell-ringing “Santa” and then captivated by the sexy lawyer she turns out to be in Piñeiro’s slightly edgy, bondage-tinged Fate Calls. Spicy, violent, and passionate, these stories resolve the human-vampire conflict in different ways. While the tales may not be everyone’s holiday mug of cider, more adventurous readers might find the offbeat, darker aspects both atypical and refreshing.”
