To Love and Serve by Caridad Pineiro #GuestPost #Giveaway

Tour Banner - To Love and Serve

Born to Love…

Five years ago, vampire Ryder Latimer stepped into the path of a bullet meant for FBI Agent Diana Reyes, at once saving her life and condemning her to death when his blood contaminates her open wounds. Now only an experimental treatment, transfusions, and allowing Ryder to sink his teeth into her when they make love keep her alive.

Born to Survive…

Ryder has always known that no matter what they try, Diana can’t possibly survive what contact with his blood did to her. The reality for him is that no matter how much he loves her, he will lose her if he doesn’t turn her—a choice Diana may have put off for too long.

Born to Serve…

Even as her health continues to deteriorate and they battle with that difficult decision, Diana tracks a serial killer targeting their vampire friends. It’s a dangerous job, but she was born to it and, with Ryder’s help, she’ll serve and protect until the day she dies—or until a miracle turns their world upside down.

The Book Excerpt

To Love And Serve Cover

Diana loved the feel of the wind racing past them and the crisp smells of the early autumn night as they drove through Manhattan. She raised her head and took in the silver, glittering stars and the familiar Lower East Side skyscrapers, golden against the night sky. But then Ryder turned off Park Ave too early, heading away from his club.

“I thought we were going to the Lair?” she asked, swiveling on the bench seat to face him.

He shrugged uneasily and his hands clenched and unclenched the large steering wheel. “Some stuff is up there, and I thought—”

“You didn't want to trouble me with it.”

He shot her a quick glance. “I guess you can say that.”

She laid a hand on his thigh and noted the tension in his body. “You should know by now I'm not afraid of trouble, and if you need me—”

“I know. I can just ask. But tonight, I didn't want any drama.”

“What if I said I want to go? Want to remember what it was like that first time...the magic I felt with you?” She stroked his thigh, feeling tension of another kind work into his big body.

He groaned and sneaked another quick peek. “You're not playing fair, darlin'.”

She grinned and inched up on her knees until she was close enough to whisper in his ear, “Didn't you say all was fair in love and war?”

For good measure she licked the shell of his ear and he growled his response. “Never let it be said I didn't fulfill a lady's desire.”

With a chuckle and another quick swipe of her tongue, she sat back down. “No one ever said I was a lady.”

Her humor calmed the tension beneath the surface and with a few quick turns, they were on their way to the Lair.

As Ryder wheeled the car into the alley next to the club, she sighed and said, “That was nice.” It was dark and intimate between the tall buildings, and for a moment she imagined them climbing into that big back seat for some sexiness.

When Ryder shot a heated glance back there, too, she realized his thoughts weren’t far from hers. She tucked her legs beneath her, kneeled, and leaned forward to brush a kiss against his lips.

He smiled and wrapped his arm around her waist, keeping her close as he returned her kiss. “I’m glad you enjoyed the ride.”

“I did. It brought back some nice memories.” She raked her fingers through his thick, cocoa brown hair.

“You didn’t have to do this.”

“I wanted to. I want you to be happy.” Cradling her cheek, he rubbed his thumb along the line of it before tipping his head to kiss her again.

It began as a simple touch, but he lingered, tracing the edges of her lips with his, tunneling his hand into her hair as he deepened the kiss. She accepted, opening her mouth and sampling him. How she'd hungered for his taste. Needed the feel of his strong body hard against hers.

Ryder didn’t want the moment to end. This was how it should be. Simple. Loving. Full of promise.

Diana broke from him only long enough to draw a breath, then she met his mouth again. Her lips were mobile and welcoming. The soft press of her breasts against his chest oh-so-tempting. But through the haze of his desire, the uneven beat of her heart registered. It was too unsteady, He held back, worried that the almost frantic rhythm was from more than passion.

When she bit his lower lip, he shuddered, fighting his need, but then a push of power grated against his vampire senses. An energy filled with both light and dark, and familiar now that he'd been touched by it.

Reluctantly he ended their kiss, leaned back, and glanced in the direction of the formidable energy.

The Guest Post

Thanks to Loralee for sharing her space with me! I appreciate being able to share a bit about my new vampire romantic suspense release, TO LOVE AND SERVE.

I have a confession to make: I’m a scairdy cat. Seriously. I’m not a big fan of the dark and I pull the sheets up to cover my neck when I sleep. Let’s not even talk about full moons!

My fear of all things that go bump in the night goes back to when my mom and sis watched a lot of horror movies on rainy Saturday afternoons. I’d always watch with them, but had a lot of nightmares thanks to the creepy movies we watched.

To this day, I don’t watch horror movies. They just creep me out and give me nightmares.

But somewhere along the way, I fell in love with vampire romance and since I’d always been a fan of suspense stories, I thought, why not mix up both those genres.

That’s why Diana Reyes started screaming in my head. I knew right away that she was going to be a kick-ass FBI Agent who was determined to fight evil. But I knew Diana had darkness inside her also. Vampires seemed like just the way to explore Diana’s darkness.

TO LOVE AND SERVE deals with fears of the undead and good versus evil. It also deals with a love so great that Diana and Ryder can’t imagine living without each other, but also know that Diana becoming undead brings a world of hurt.

TO LOVE AND SERVE is emotional and action-packed. Romantic and sexy. I hope you’ll take a moment to check it out.

Thanks again for letting me visit! I’d love to hear from your readers if they’re scairdy cats like me!

With a second chance to bring him to justice, she goes undercover in the casino, but instead of facing the villain she expected, she finds herself battling a sizzling attraction to the man.

Now, forced to work together to trace the source of the illegal activities, the danger–and the passion between them–grows out of control, and they slowly begin to realize the biggest danger isn’t to the casino, it’s to their lives…and to their hearts.
