The Claimed by Caridad Piñeiro

Claimed by Caridad Piñeiro

Synopsis:  Victoria Johnson loves her life. She's her own boss in a quaint beachside town, and has great friends who keep her grounded. If only they knew who she really is: an heiress to an ancient race who possesses astonishing superhuman powers. It's Victoria's duty to restore her clan of Light Hunters to their former glory by choosing the perfect mate. In Christopher Sombrosa, she just may have found him. Strong, smart, and successful, Christopher exudes a powerful energy. Their connection is sensual, irresistible-and forbidden.

A member of the Shadow Hunter clan, Christopher has defied his own father to lead his people away from affliction and violence. Yet he cannot ignore his duty to carry on his ancient bloodline. Stunningly beautiful and brimming with an erotic life force, Victoria is everything Christopher ever hoped for in a mate . . . but as a Light Hunter, she's his mortal enemy. Together, they could unite their warring tribes. But murderous factions on both sides don't want peace-and they'll stop at nothing to keep light and darkness apart forever . . .

Review:  I want to start by saying that I love Victoria Johnson.  She is witty, a good friend, and just an all out awesome lead character.  I also really liked Christopher.  He is smart, charming, strong.... The Claimed is a modern take on the classic forbidden love story.  Victoria and Christopher have excellent chemistry and really work well together, for me.

This is the first book in the Sin Hunters series, but I was able to catch on fairly quickly to the words unique to this particular series.  I also enjoyed the fact that the idea behind it is different from any that I've read so far.  The Claimed is action packed, the characters well developed and intelligent - and plot is fresh.  I will be reading the previous book, and any others that follow.

4 stars
