Book Blog Tour of Sins of the Flesh by Caridad Pineiro
Caterina Shaw's days are numbered. her only chance for survival is a highly experimental gene treatment - a risk she willingly takes. But now Caterina barely recognizes herself. She has new, terrifying powers, an exotic, arresting body - and she's been accused of a savage murder, sending her on the run.
Mike Carrera is a mercenary and an expert at capturing elusive, clever prey. Yet the woman he's hunting down is far from teh vicious killer he's been told to expect: Caterina is wounded, vulnerable, and a startling mystery of medical science. Even more, she's a beautiful woman whose innocent sensuality tempts Mike to show her exactly how thrilling pleasure can be. The heat that builds between them is irresistible, but surrendering to it could kill them both. . . for a dangerous group is plotting the next move using Caterina as its deadly pawn.
Sins of the Flesh is an unusual thriller - and combines science fiction, romance, and suspense. Caterina Shaw is a complex and sympathetic character trapped in because of her experimental medical treatments. Mick Carrera is a strong leading man - essentially good but tortured and with a complex past. Sins of the Flesh reads a bit like well done science fiction films and television shows - fast-paced and full of twists. If you enjoy watching Doll House, Fringe, The Sarah Connor Chronicles, and Dark Angel, I think that you'll thoroughly enjoyed Sins of the Flesh.
