Pineiro has an intense devotion to her home state of New Jersey and the Jersey Shore in which she has set so many of her novels. “The Jersey Shore is a unique melding of all the people and cultures that make New Jersey such a wonderful state,” says Pineiro. “When I’m down the shore I can experience so much thanks to the unique aspects of each of the towns and the beauty of the many beaches and wetlands. My heart broke to see all the damage and I want to do what I can to help rebuild the shore.”
Pineiro wrote her first novel in the fifth grade when her teacher assigned a project – to write a book for a class lending library – and continues to cast spells for her readers. Her first novel was released in 1999. Now, over a decade later, Pineiro is the author of nearly forty published novels and novellas. The Prince’s Gamble is her first release with Entangled Publishing under the Dead Sexy romantic suspense imprint.
About The Prince’s Gamble
Prince Alexander Ivanov is scrambling to save his reputation and his livelihood. One of the Russian Nights Casino's hostesses has disappeared, and his business is suddenly under investigation by the FBI for associations with the mob and money laundering.
Special Agent Kathleen Martinez has no patience with rich, entitled aristocrats, especially one like Alexander Ivanov whom she believes is involved in the vicious human trafficking ring which she'd tried—and failed—to shut down two years earlier. 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.
