Cara Paulsen does not give up easily. A scientist and a single mother, she's used to fighting for what she wants, keeping a cool head, and doing whatever it takes to protect her daughter Janie. But "whatever it takes" has never before included a shotgun wedding to a dangerous-looking stranger with an attitude problem. . .


Sure, the mysterious Talen says that he's there to protect Cara and Janie. He also says that he's a three-hundred-year-old vampire. Of course, the way he touches her, Cara might actually believe he's had that long to practice. . .

Loved it!
January 16th, 2016
The characters are great. Some things were rushed through without much development, but I liked the fast pace and the fact that other characters were involved instead of a very heavy focus on the main couple. There are lots of things to explore in this series. Gotta love a good alpha male falling for his true hate. Can't wait to read the next story.

I devoured it
July 9th, 2015
This novel was fast paced and wildly exciting from the get-go. Action, romance, and suspense kept me so wrapped up that I devoured this novel in a single day. World building melts with plot development in such a manner that they become a seamless whole. Zanetti takes readers deep into the world of this series while also giving them the ride of a lifetime. I love how the relationship between the main characters wasn’t easy, but neither was it insurmountable. The battle of wills, desires, and needs leads to some comical moments, while at the same time highlights just how well these two fit together. Cara’s abilities really make her shine as a character, as does her compassion and genuine warmth. Her difficult past directly affects her, yet doesn’t define her. Talen’s multifaceted character was fantastic. I enjoyed getting to know him bit by bit via tidbits dropped by those closest to him. He was also hot, caring, and all Alpha, the type of hero you just can’t look away from. And let’s not forget Janie, in all her cuteness & insight. Through her we get to know a lot about the hearts of the main characters, as well as many of the supporting cast. My final thoughts on this one? How have I never read this novel before now & could someone please hand me the next in the series. Zanetti had me hooked from cover to cover with her fantastically in depth and imaginative, yet completely plausible, world and all its goings on.

Meet the sexy Dark Protectors!
May 11th, 2015
Not Lestat. Not the Carpathians. Not Angel, or even Edward Cullen. Nope. The sexiest vampires ever are Rebecca Zanetti's Dark Protectors! And it all starts with Fated ... Talen Kayrs, the head of security and strategic military leader of the Realm, is skilled in combat, powerful, dominating and sexy as hell. He also happens to be ... a vampire. In Zanetti's unique take on paranormal romance, her vampires walk in daylight, look just like humans, don't need to drink blood to survive and yes, pay taxes! Those rumours to the contrary? Well, we've been confusing vampires with Kurjans, white-faced, night-walking sociopaths who view the human race as "prey". Imagine the shock, disbelief and terror of Cara Paulsen, single mom, scientist and closet empath, when she learns that a) vampires are real, b) monsters (Kurjans) are real, and c) the Kurjans are after her and her four year old daughter Janie! Cara is as intelligent, level-headed, and maternally protective as the rest of us but Talen's offer (actually demand!) that he protect and marry her is too compelling to be refused Talen and Cara's story is breath-taking, heart-pounding, and deliciously erotic. Along the way you will be introduced to the rest of the sexy Kayrs brothers and assorted shifters, witches, and demons. Throw in a mysterious Virus-27 developed by the devious Kurjans, escalating war between immortals on multiple fronts, and vague unsettling prophecies about Janies's role as a future catalyst in changing the fate of the world, and you are in for an amazing ride!
