Amazon/Amazon
five-stars

Hide. That's all Pippa can do to escape the terror chasing her. But now that she's off the grid in a safe house, she finds plenty of interesting things to watch through the window. Like her new neighbor, with his startling green eyes, killer smile, and sexy bad-boy tattoo . . .

Run. Malcolm West is fleeing the hell he unleashed in his last assignment as an undercover cop. A backwoods bungalow sounds like the perfect place to start over. Until he discovers he's been set up . . .

Fight. Someone's gone to a lot of trouble to bring them together. No matter how much he resents that, and his own driving needs, Malcolm will have to dig deep and let loose the banished killer inside himself, or Pippa's fears could come true faster than the flip of a bolt in a lock . . .

"Sexy . . . packed with action and danger--a real page turner."
--New York Times bestselling author Kat Martin

"Fast-paced romance . . . very compelling. Highly recommended."
--Library Journal
"A fast-paced, excitement-filled explosion of action."
--RT Book Reviews on Marked, 4.5 Stars Top Pick

"Sizzling sex scenes and a memorable cast."
--Publishers Weekly on Claimed

 

Going into a book, I normally know, what genre and a little bit about the plot. However, with Rebecca Zanetti newest series, Deep Ops, I tried to know as little as possible. I wanted to see if knowing nothing at all about a book makes a massive decision on the rating that I give a title. I’d concluded that knowing little to nothing about the characters and plot, doesn’t make a huge difference. If anything, it made me enjoy the book even more.

I started Hidden well into the evening with only the lights from my Kindle illuminating my room. How ironic it is that Hidden was a mystery suspense thriller and the movie that was on was also a thriller…. not so providential when your sister reminded you that it was movie night and we had planned to watch a thriller that night.

In Hidden, the heroine, Pipa, was leaving the life of a hermit with a mild case of agoraphobia…or so I thought. It changed when Malcolm West was introduced, and I learned that he used to be an undercover cop. No sooner than those words crossed my page I came to realize that maybe there was a huge reason Pipa chose to live the way she did; hiding from a past that was horrific to even this reader.

Rebecca Zanetti used an event from our history that our heroine with the help of our hero had to navigate. Rebecca Zanetti has done an overwhelming job of incorporating this bit of history without over-dramatizing or romanticizing the events.
By the time I completed Hidden, I knew that I wanted to read more of this series and a get to know the back story of the secondary characters. With one-character… Wolfe being the prominent character that I want to see get his own story.

Hidden, an exceptional start to Deep Ops. I totally recommend Hidden to any advent fan of mystery suspense.

 

About Rebecca Zanetti

Rebecca Zanetti wrote her first story when she was six – a romance between a princess and neighboring prince. The princess fell out of her castle and the prince rescued her. A happily ever after was had by all.

This theme of romance has been carried through Rebecca’s works until present time. While today’s heroine may have a medical degree, black belt in Karate and her own 401K, she’s still after that happy ending. And today’s prince may have fangs and wear a black hat, but hey, a modern princess likes a guy who bites.

Rebecca attended Pepperdine University, earning a bachelor’s degree in Journalism with a Political Science emphasis. While there she worked as the Editor-in-Chief of The Graphic newspaper, a member of the Pi Phi Sorority and an intern for President Reagan, who still gave 3-5 speeches a week, even though he was no longer president.

After college, Rebecca worked as an art curator and a Senate aide before heading to law school, where she received her Juris Doctorate from the University of Idaho. She married Tony Zanetti in the middle of her second year of law school and became pregnant with their first child during the third year. She graduated law school, gave birth three weeks later, and took the Bar Exam three weeks after that. All she remembers about the bar exam is that it was so quiet in the testing room, she thought about taking a quick nap. But she continued on, passed the bar and became a lawyer. She worked for a large firm, then a small firm, then the county while also teaching legal classes at her local community college. Now she writes romances about vampires, cowboys, and soldiers.

Growing up amid the glorious backdrops and winter wonderlands of the Pacific Northwest has given Rebecca fantastic scenery and adventures to weave into her stories. She resides there with her husband, children, and extended family who inspire her every day. Rebecca has completed several manuscripts, winning award throughout the writing industry for her work. She currently writes the Scorpius Syndrome series and the Realm Enforcer series (a Dark Protector spinoff) for Kensington Publishing, and the Sin Brothers series and the Lost Bastard Series for Grand Central Publishing.

Vampire’s Faith is Rebecca Zanetti latest installment in the Dark Protectors series. Where we find that Ronan Kayrs was one of three destined to hold the ultimate Dark force at bay. However, there was a disruption and one by one the bubbles started to burst.

Ronan Kayrs wasn’t expecting to walk the earth again nor meet his mate. But, Ronan does both. He sacrificed a lot and now he is expected to do it again.
Ronan wants to know, what lengths will he have to go,  in order to protect this new world he awoke and to protect the woman that he has known only from a dream.

It has been awhile since I read the Dark Protectors. But after reading this book. I was ready to revisit this world from the beginning. This story like the rest of the books in this series didn’t disappoint. Though there were times that the story itself dragged on. But once you passed the character introductions, the story moved right along.

I certainly enjoyed this story, and recommend this book to any old or new fans of the Dark Protector series or to the genre of paranormal romance. The next book in the series Demon’s Mercy comes out January 22, 2019, which is the story about Logan Kyllwood. This is supposed to complete the series. I am hoping that it’s not. I want to see the woman that Garret Kayrs will fall for.

 


 

about

The Dark Protectors are Back!

Vampire Ronan Kayrs wasn’t supposed to survive the savage sacrifice he willingly endured to rid the world of the ultimate evil. He wasn’t supposed to emerge in this time and place, and he sure as hell wasn’t supposed to finally touch the woman who’s haunted his dreams for centuries. Yet here he is, in an era where vampires are hidden, the enemy has grown stronger, and his mate has no idea of the power she holds.

Dr. Faith Cooper is flummoxed by irrefutable proof that not only do vampires exist . . . they’re hot blooded, able to walk in sunlight, and shockingly sexy. Faith has always depended on science, but the restlessness she feels around this predatory male defies reason. Especially when it grows into a hunger only he can satisfy—that is if they can survive the evil hunting them both.

Twisted Truths (Blood Brothers Book 3) Review

Title: Twisted Truths | Author: Rebecca Zanetti

Publisher: Forever | Publication Date: November 14, 2017

Sold by: Hachette Book Group | Page Length: 432

Series: Blood Brothers #3


You can’t escape the past . . .
Noni is desperate. Her infant niece has been kidnapped, and the only person who can save her is a private detective with too many secrets to count–and more enemies than he can name. A man who walked away from Noni without any warning a year ago, a man who broke her heart. But with Talia’s life on the line, Noni needs his help now more than ever–and this time, she won’t take no for an answer . . .
The moment Denver Jones sees Noni, the memories come rushing back. The fire in her eyes. The determination in her voice. The danger of having her in his life. Denver had to push her away once, but now with vicious criminals threatening Noni and her niece, he’ll do whatever it takes to protect them. But enemies from his past are circling, and they’ll use anything–and anyone–to get to Denver.

With the Kidnapping of a young child, the last book in the Blood Brothers series will take readers on a high-octane ride. Noni was desperate to save her infant niece who has been kidnapped. And the only person she knows able to assist her and that one person was Denver Jones.
Denver walked away from Noni, not because he wanted too. But because he had to keep her safe from his past. However, even distance from the woman he lived will keep her safe. When criminals are gunning for Noni, he will do anything to keep her safe. And now that his past has caught up with him he must use all his skills that he learned over the years to keep his small family safe.
What a way to end a series. Rebecca Zanetti held nothing back when she wrote this book. Great romance and a nice thrilling ride to the finish line. Twisted Truths, appropriately named. For it had many plot twist and turns that by the end you felt like you were on a nonstop roller coaster ride.
If you are a big fan of Rebecca Zanetti or if this will be your first title ever read, Twisted Truth certainly won’t let you down. I know I couldn’t put it down.

Lethal-Lies-mm-Graphic-#2

 

A deadly secret can’t stay buried forever . . .

Revenge. It’s the only thing that will help Anya Best sleep at night. The serial killer who murdered her sister is on the loose, and Anya will stop at nothing to put him behind bars—even use herself as bait to lure him out of hiding. But she can’t do this alone.

Private investigator Heath Jones’s job is to bring bastards to justice. This time it’s personal. He knew the Copper Killer’s latest victim so when her sister asks for his help, he’s all in. But when Anya uses the media to taunt the killer, she exposes Heath’s identity, putting them both in jeopardy. Now, secrets buried long ago are coming to light and the forces determined to destroy him are watching Heath’s every move, waiting to exact their own revenge. And they’ll use anything and anyone to get to Heath.

“4 1/2 stars! Top pick! This is a true thriller that will keep readers frantically flipping the pages as death and danger come at the protagonists from several directions.  Zanetti’s brilliance at storytelling is on full display…When it comes to high-octane thrillers, they don’t get better than Zanetti!” —RT Book Reviews on LETHAL LIES

She swallowed and met his gaze. “All right. Let me get this straight. We’re going undercover to flush out a killer who’s obsessed with me, and you’re offering to play at being my man for real with no strings or future?” She hoisted the bag onto her shoulder. “That’s some ego. Are you that good in bed?”

“Yes.” And that was definite interest in her eyes.

She clicked her tongue. “I’ll keep your offer in mind.”

“You do that.” He maintained a low and calm voice. “While you’re considering, let’s look at the situation. You have publicly made me your fiancé in order to draw out a killer, which means I have to act as such. Any halfway intelligent law enforcement officer or private investigator would keep his redheaded fiancée very close after the stunt you just pulled. If you’re not with me, the killer is going to be very suspicious.”

She stilled, expressions crossing her face rapidly. “That’s a good point,” she said slowly.

Yeah. Sometimes reality helped him out a little. Plus, the killer had a hard-on for her, and he must already have plans to take her at some point. She’d just upped the timeline. “In addition, you need protection around the clock now, and I’m willing to provide that. So while you’re keeping my offer in mind, we’ll be staying in the same hotel room or same apartment.” He made sure he had her full attention. “While we plan the wedding, of course.”

Her challenging smile thrilled something inside him. “That’s fair.”

He stepped back to give her some space. “Good. Are you ready?”

“Yes.” She looked around the room. “I do have to ask. What if I didn’t agree with you about your keeping secrets from me? Considering people shoot at you, and I’m going to be at your side, it seems fair that you tell me who these people are.” She cocked her head to the side and focused back on him.

“I have more immediate concerns than being fair,” he said smoothly. “You brought me into this mess.”

A frown drew down her eyebrows. “Listen. I want an answer about you.”

“I just gave you one.” At her mulish expression, he searched for better words that wouldn’t end in an argument.

Suddenly, the door blew wide open and bounced loudly off the table. “Anya!” he yelled, jumping for her.

Storm Gathering (The Scorpius Syndrome Book 4)

Storm Gathering (The Scorpius Syndrome Book 4) by [Zanetti, Rebecca]Storm Gathering

Rating:

Author: Rebecca Zanetti

Series: Scorpius Syndrome

Print Length: 359 Pages

Publication Date: September 19, 2017


Even before surviving the Scorpius bacterium, Greyson Storm was a lone wolf navigating minefields. As a kid, he learned to take a hit and find safety. As an adult, he joined the military and quickly learned how to protect and defend. When the world ended, he created a mercenary camp with military precision, no entanglements, and a promise to avenge a fallen friend. As part of that vow, he kidnapped Maureen Shadow, but now that he has let her go, her blue eyes and intriguing mind keep haunting him…

As possibly the only Biotechnology Engineer still living, Maureen Shadow might be humanity’s one hope to survive the aftermath of Scorpius, making her frighteningly valuable to both allies and enemies. Even after sexual tension explodes between her and Greyson, she’s not sure which camp he belongs to—friend or foe? Worse yet, survival may mean thwarting his prime mission, putting her in even more peril. When danger and seduction collide, there is no safety in this new world.

If the Scorpius Syndrome should happen tomorrow, and you were one of the survivors which side would you be on? I want to believe that I would be on the side that would fight for a cure. Storm Gathering is a work of fiction. It is not too often that we come across fiction especially in a romance that the heavy topic of death and how one can change society if we all just work together.

Storm Gathering is book # 4 in Rebecca Zanetti’s thriller post-apocalyptic romance The Scorpius Syndrome. Maureen Shadow may be the only Biotechnology Engineer left living and the most valuable to both allies and enemies.

If you haven’t read book three, Maureen Shadow was kidnapped by Greyson Storm to keep a vow to a dead friend. But later he let her go. But by then the attraction for Maureen just grew to where he couldn’t stop thinking about her. And now that there is finally a chance for him to keep his promise, he must decide if a promise to a dead friend is worth risking what he hopes to gain with Maureen.

I am really enjoying this series, and without a doubt, Storm Gathering fits right in with the others in this series. What I love the most about this story is all the characters from the previous story made their appearance. Also, this series feels like one big movie just without the movie screen. Storm Gathering will have you thinking, cheering and crying until the very last page has been turned.

So, after you read Storm Gathering if Scorpius Syndrome should happen tomorrow what side would you take.

I would recommend Storm Gathering for any hard-core Science Fiction lover how also love a good romance.

Wicked Bite (Realm Enforcers, #5)

Author: Rebecca Zanetti

Series: Realm Enforcers

Print Length: 298 Pages

Publication Date: August 1, 2017


 

If you love the Dark Protectors, these wicked hot Realm Enforcers are for you!

“Fast-paced romance . . . very compelling. Highly recommended.” —Library Journal

As she hunts for a drug lord killing her fellow witches, all Nessa Lansa’s instincts point to the Grizzly motorcycle club. That might be because their leader, Bear, is the strong, silent shifter type: warm brown eyes and more muscle and alpha male than any woman can ignore. Which makes Nessa’s plan to seduce and betray him all the more dangerous . . .

Bear doesn’t trust the curvy, blue-eyed witch. But Nessa can heal the injuries that sap his strength. And since he can’t stop thinking of her lush body and teasing smile, her plan to mate him to reclaim her own power is highly tempting. Just one problem. Once a desire this wild is loose, no one will ever control it .

If you ever read one of Rebecca Zanetti books. You will know that she tries to engage the reader from the start, and won’t let you go until the very last page is turned.
Only a few shifters can turn into more than one animal. It is known that you should choose the dominant animal and only the dominant to become. However, to save his sister life from the council, Bear had to go against nature and turn into his alternate form a Dragon. Which we later learn has shortened his life span, and now only one person can save him…. Tessa Lansa. Or so she tells Bear. However, her healing him comes with a price. He must mate with her for life.

When it comes to secrets, no one is better at keeping than a Witch. Tessa knows all too well about secrets, for she is caring one around that not too many people knows about. It’s one that she must keep from Bear, which it’s becoming harder and harder to keep.
Wicked Bite was everything that I hoped for with Bear’s story. Action with a lot of romance. The chemistry was topped with sassy banter among our intrepid lovers. The final revelation of who’s behind the making of the drug that is killing witches and humans is finally revealed.

Wicked Bite is a great stand-alone title, but is even better if you read the titles in the order of publication.

Wicked Kiss (Realm Enforcers, #4)

Wicked Kiss by [Zanetti, Rebecca]Wicked Kiss

Rating:

Author: Rebecca Zanetti

Series: Realm Enforcer #4

Print Length: 286 Pages

Publication Date: July 4, 2017


Working as an informant for the DEA, Victoria Monzelle is used to living on the edge. But she’s not a big fan of getting kidnapped. And definitely not by a bunch of bad boy witches with fancy-colored fire to shoot at people. So when Adam Dunne shows up and claims to be a witch enforcer, she’s not going to put her life in his hands based on his word, no matter how smooth and smart and beautifully Irish his words sound. But on the run from a tribunal of witches, she isn’t going to make it far . . .

Before she knows it, Adam’s word is all that stands between her and execution. Sophisticated, just-gotta-ruffle-him Adam has vowed to make her his one eternal mate, wild and unpredictable as she is—to save her from a sentence of certain death. But Tori isn’t interested in being anyone’s pity date. And if they think she’s unpredictable now, they should see what’s coming next . . .

Wicked Kiss a fun and adventurous tale, with loads of hot romance just waiting to be read. Victoria Monzelle loves living on the edge. Just one thing or person should I say was stopping her from doing what she loves that was Adam Dunne.

Who is Adam Dunne, that is a question that Victoria Monzelle has been asking herself since the day she ran into Adam? He claims to be a witch enforcer. But could Victoria believe him? She must because now her life is in danger by the tribunal of witches.
If you’re looking for a good book with a nice adventure or just something to a pick me up after a long day. Wicked Kiss is that book in spades. It was fast-pace with two characters with wonderful chemistry that any fan of Zanetti would tell you is a making for a wonderful novel.
Wicked Kiss is book four in Rebecca Zanetti’s Realm Enforcers series, and written in the third person narrative.

My only advice about this series. Are the books must be read in the order of publication. This is to get the most out of the adventure.

Welcome to the world of the The Realm Enforcers. Where Witches, Vampires, Demons and Shifters are just a part of everyday life.

Talen (Dark Protectors, #7.76)

Talen by Rebecca Zanetti

My rating: 

Publisher: Lyrical Press

Publication Date: June 6, 2017

Print Length: 96 pages


I have been a blogger for just about three years now. 😊 It has been a journey to come this far. Thank you, everyone, who’s following my blog from the conception. But as life has shown us. It’s forever changing and evolving. So, like life…I too must evolve. To begin this transformation, I will start with the way I rate my books. Nothing too huge. For even though life changes, I am only human, and as such, don’t really care for change.

But I am doing away with the plain looking stars. Yep, gone and forever shall we part. Out with the old in with the new. Yearwood La Novela is going animated. Thus, depending on how great the book was, will depend on what the animation shall be. To implement this modification. I thought that Talen should be the perfect book to do the big reveal.

Again, thanks to all my old followers and hello new ones. On to the book review.

She’ll love him forever . . . but he can’t make her obey . . .

The war is over. Danger has passed. Cara Kayrs is healed after decades of illness and ready for a break.

Too bad her brooding, alpha vampire husband can’t seem to change gears. In their twenty-five years, together Talen Kayrs has learned to sense every shiver of her body, to ignite her desire with a word or a look. She would think he could learn she’s not some fragile damsel in distress.

But Talen is on edge, watching their backs, treating her like she’s made of glass. Like there’s something following them, a deadly threat that somehow none of their intelligence has uncovered. It’s enough to drive a woman crazy, and Talen has plenty of those tendencies already.

But what’s even more maddening is that he seems to be right . . .

Never think something is ever complete. As author knows that when a character speaks to you, it must be time to write their story. Well, Talen and Cara spoke to Rebecca Zanetti. Their journey wasn’t finished like we thought.  We see that it has been twenty-fives years that Talen and Cara have been married. That they’re happily married with two adult children and one adorable grandchild. What we also see, is Talen being Talen. That’s right…you would think that after twenty-five years and there’s peace among demons that Talen would stop being over protective. Nope! And like Talen is found saying “I have lived over a decade, to know that peace is short lived.” Not a perfect quote, but you see what I mean. But later you would understand that Talen is never wrong. Because no sooner, then they leave the house demons are hot on their trail. And their mission is to capture Cara.
It is not too often, that authors revisit old characters, and we as readers get to see our beloved characters once more and to see how they’re faring. You would think once that character or characters story has been told that its the end of it. But it’s nice to know, we can never assume anything.

Like in their original story, Talen is again a badass, out to prove that he is still nothing to mess with….in war or peace time. And when it comes to protecting Cara he would do absolutely anything.

For Talen to be a short novella, it didn’t take long for me to fall in love with Talen and Cara all over again. I think this might be true for you.

A deadly secret can’t stay buried forever . . .

Revenge. It’s the only thing that will help Anya Best sleep at night. The serial killer who murdered her sister is on the loose, and Anya will stop at nothing to put him behind bars-even use herself as bait to lure him out of hiding. But she can’t do this alone.

Private investigator Heath Jones’s job is to bring bastards to justice. This time it’s personal. He knew the Copper Killer’s latest victim so when her sister asks for his help, he’s all in. But when Anya uses the media to taunt the killer, she exposes Heath’s identity, putting them both in jeopardy. Now, secrets buried long ago are coming to light and the forces determined to destroy him are watching Heath’s every move, waiting to exact their own revenge. And they’ll use anything and anyone to get to Heath.

Lethal Lies was a blast to read. The 2nd book to Rebecca Zanetti Blood Brother series. We have Heath Jones trying to bring justice to the lawless with the help of brothers. But things get personal when the serial killer nicknamed “Copper Killer” has an eye for Anya.
Anya has personal problems after walking in on her boyfriend getting busy with one of his students. But nothing is more personal when you attract the attention of a serial killer. With one phone call, Anya will change her life for the worse or better depending on your perceptions. I personally am the person who always sees the glass as half empty.
The action begins from the start and maintained that flow until the very last page. It was a pleasure to read this book. Matter affect I changed my whole entire reading order just to read this book first. I was hoping for goods things from this book since I really enjoyed the Sins Brothers and the first book in this new series.
Well, Rebecca Zanetti didn’t disappoint. The chemistry between Heath and Anya was captivating . What I enjoyed about this story, was the same thing that drew me in from the start…the romantic suspense. Let me say, that I thought I knew who the “Copper Killer” and it was a really shocker to found out who it really was.
I will recommend this book to anyone who is into romantic suspense. I also would recommend that you start with the Sins Brothers series to get the back history. Reason being that the villainess in this series made her appearance in the Sins Brother’s series.

Before surviving the Scorpius bacterium, Tace Justice was a good ole Texas cowboy who served his country and loved his mama. After Scorpius, the world became dark, dangerous, and deadly—and so did he. The Vanguard medic is stronger, faster, and smarter than before, but he’s lost the line between right and wrong. His passion is absolute, and when he focuses it on one woman, there’s no turning back for either of them…

In truth, Sami is a former hacker turned government agent who worked at The Bunker, where scientists stored both contaminants and cures. Only she knows the location, and she’s not telling. Yet when sexual fire explodes between her and Tace, she’ll face even that hell again to save him.

Before the Scorpius Syndrome tore through North America and nearly wiped out the population, Vivienne Wellington was the FBI’s best profiler. The bacteria got her anyway. But she survived. She recovered. And when she woke up from a drug-nightmare of captivity, her trust in her fellow man had gone from shaky at best to nonexistent. Her mysterious rescuer wants to convince her he’s the exception. But no matter how tempting he is, with his angel’s eyes and devil’s tongue, Vinnie knows she shouldn’t trust him.

If the FBI were still around they would rate Raze Shadow as one of the bad guys. His military training can’t wipe out his association with the Mercenaries, the most feared gang in a thousand miles. His loyalties are compromised. He won’t even tell Vinnie his real name. But there’s no FBI in the new America of fear and firepower, only instinct and risk. And the way his arms wrap around her tells its own story. Whatever else Raze is concealing, he can’t hide his desire . . .

If I had to compound a list of dark romances, I would have to add Rebecca Zanetti to the top of list.

In Shadow Falling we continue the saga in her apocalyptic romance. We see what the Scorpius Syndrome has left behind.  I have to say that its bleak for us humans if this ever does happen, between fighting sociopaths and Rippers, the survivors must also contend with the uncertainty that the Earth may never be the same again.

When the world was normal Vivienne had a budding career as one of the top FBI profilers. But when the Scorpius virus ripped through the population, Vivienne was one of many who caught the virus, but she was also one of many for which the virus didn’t turn into a made killer. However, she must struggle with being a survivor and find where she belongs in this new world that has gone mad.

Shadow Falling maintained the same high level of excellence that started in Mercury Striking. This story was well worth the wait…now I must wait to see what Rebecca Zanetti has in store next for our intrepid heroes.

Wicked Burn (Realm Enforcers #3)

Simone Brightston knows she can beat the rap her enemies are pinning on her. An Irish witch is nobody’s fool, and she didn’t get to her position on the high council without serious power. But her cousins want her to hide out–and they somehow convinced her arch nemesis to play getaway driver.

Of all the men she’s known, Nikolaj Veis is the hardest to intimidate. With his demon-dark eyes and his inscrutable beauty, he’s as desirable as he is dangerous. And he knows better than to underestimate Simone. So when he pulls up on a roaring bike and tells her to climb on or fight it out, she grabs a handful of jacket and holds on tight. Running from the law may not be the smartest plan. But when it comes to Nick, hot pursuit and a blazing fast ride are exactly what Simone’s looking for . . .

My Review: You could go through life looking for that perfect book, written by one of the all-time greats. You still wouldn’t find it. So, I will settle for that great book, written by one of my favorite authors.

When I read a romance. My men has to be hot and the women that they love has to be fierce. In Wicked Burn written by Rebecca Zanetti that is exactly what I got.

Nikolai Veis was on the road to having everything being a demon that was saying a lot. Until one day he was told to secure Simone future he had to leave her behind. Nikolai would do anything for Simone so he did. A century has pass and now Simone future is still not secure, she is being hunted by a yet to be known person.

Wicked Burn is wickedly sexy, and wild. The banter between Nikolai and Simone is too enjoyable to pass up. The nickname he has for Simone was very cute also.

When you browse through the story looking for that good book. Or if you enjoy a good eBook, don’t forget to get your copy.

Mercury Striking (The Scorpius Syndrome #1)

51wgf-pfs3l-_sx304_bo1204203200_

With nothing but rumors to lead her, Lynne Harmony has trekked across a nightmare landscape to find one man—a mysterious, damaged legend who protects the weak and leads the strong. He’s more than muscle and firepower—and in post-plague L.A., he’s her only hope. As the one woman who could cure the disease, Lynne is the single most volatile—and vulnerable—creature in this new and ruthless world. But face to face with Jax Mercury…

My Review: I don’t know what to say. Mercury Striking was a read on speed. This was a thriller romance with an exclamation point on thriller. Mercury Striking is a story about a Scorpius bacterium that was released on the earth. Not by mad scientist but by innocent college students who one day came upon a meteorite which they preceded in cutting in half, thereby; releasing the harmful disease.

Mercury Striking is the first book in Rebecca Zanetti new thrilling post-apocalyptic romance which was introduced in the prequel Scorpius Rising. Lynne was a scientist on the CDC team that was injected directly with the Scorpius bacteria, in order to save her life, Nora Medina injected her with an untried serum which automatically turned her heart blue and the area around it.

After escaping a soon to be death sentence, Lynne trekked across a nightmarish landscape of death and madness looking for the one person who maybe the only salvation for mankind a damaged legend who protects the weak and leads the strong.

Jax Mercury would tell you he’s nobody’s hero. He’s just a man who’s trying to survive in a world that has gone completely mad, and if he helps save others in the process he will chalk that up to redeeming himself for the harm he committed in his younger years.

When he come across Lynne public enemy number one with a bullet if she was ever caught by other humans who blamed her and people like her for not stopping the bacteria from spreading, Both will soon realize that they have the same enemy “Time”. Will they have enough time to find the cure for the disease that has now claimed billions of lives or will time run out for them and the other survivors.

I could go on and on abut Mercury Striking but I am going to stop here and just say if you have the chance to purchase Mercury Striking do so you won’t regret the purchase. It’s a fantastic book that will pull you in for the hours it takes for you to complete the book and maybe longer than that since Mercury Striking is the first book and the next will be due out in September.

Wicked Edge (Realm Enforcers Book 2)

If you love the Dark Protectors, these wicked hot Realm Enforcers are for you!

Daire Dunne is more than ready to take a quick break from his duties as a Coven Nine Enforcer. When he spots a sexy blonde across a Titan’s of Fire party, it’s not long before she’s on the back of his Harley on the fast track to his apartment. Unfortunately, one overheated kiss in, the woman drugs Daire and steals valuable files that can’t fall into enemy hands. The second he comes to, the hunt is on…

Now that Cee Cee has the information to take down an enemy that destroyed her family, she can implement her perfect plan for revenge. Nothing will stop her, not even a shockingly sexy enforcer barging into her life. Not even the spectacular, fire-branding sex engulfing them. But if Daire ever figures out who her family really is, all bets are off…

My Review:Wow! Zanetti has done it again. Wicked Edge was very wicked with Daire Dunne and Cee Cee story. Wicked Edge was a non-stop face past action romance that had you on the edge of your seat while holding your sides. Daire Dunne was a Coven Nine Enforcer who was so ready to take a break from Enforcing when he spied Cee Cee across the room. Once this two meet it’s when the action begins and the humor come along for the ride. Cee Cee was out for revenge on the man who killed her mate, so before she kills the man, she wanted to destroy him financially first. So of course she didn’t have time for romance, however since Daire has something she wants and Daire was looking for a good time…Wicked Edge had some good twist and turns and offered hours of entertainment. If you haven’t read the first book in this series let me ease your mind and tell you that this story is a stand-alone. However, if you are looking for another enjoyable read I will recommend that you start with Wicked Ride. My review for Wicked Ride can be found here

On The Hunt

On The Hunt by Alexandra Ivy

Mika Tanner has loved Bailey Morrell, a beautiful Healer, since childhood. But his duty as a Sentinel, a supernatural guardian of an ancient race, clashed with her rebellious spirit. Now a dangerous new anarchist group not only threatens life as they know it—but any chance of their being together again…

Scorpius Rising by Rebecca Zanetti

With a deadly disease spreading like wildfire across the country, microbiologist Nora Medina needs to focus all her energy on stopping the pandemic. Playing with dynamite—in the form of her way-too-hot ex—is the last thing she should be doing. ​But forced to work with Deacan McDougall against unexpected enemies with the seconds ticking by, she knows the explosion is coming…

Phantom Embrace by Dianne Duvall

Immortal Yuri Sokolov was born with the ability to see spirits, yet he’s never seen one as lovely as Cat Seddon, the woman who haunts his home and his dreams. But amid their star-crossed love, a new danger may have Yuri facing a different kind of eternity.

Stake Out by Hannah Jayne

Vampire fashion designer Nina LaShay has a lot on her plate—just two days until fashion week and the model who was flirting with her photographer boyfriend is now a corpse in her studio. But when dead turns into undead and dangerous, Nina must find out who’s responsible…before the beautiful baby vamp takes too many bites out of the Big Apple.

My Take: Outstanding. This collection of books will have you spellbound until the very last page. The book starts with Alexandra Ivy’ Sentinel where Mika was chosen to track down a runaway guardian which leads him on reconnecting with his lost love Bailey who was a healer who likes to follow the beat of her own drum.

In Scorpius…now this book reminded me of Resident Evil. If you like the movie you will totally get behind Rebecca Zanetti new series. It was gripping, an excellent way to start a new series. The first book will always let a reader know what the series is going to be about. I can say that I can’t wait until 2016 to read the next installment.

Now Phantom…Dianne did you really have to do this? You know what I’m referring to. Yuri Sokolov has always had the ability to see spirits, never wanted to acknowledge the spirits, cause of several bad experience with them. However, Cat Seddon, wasn’t your normal every day spirit. She belonged to one of them. Phantom was firing on all cylinders. A heartwarming tale of second chance love and holding onto it before it’s too late.

Hannah Jayne is a new author for me. In Stake Out was written in a first person narrative, with a quirky plot and likable characters.

Marked by Zanetti, Rebecca Review

This is the first book that I ever read by Rebecca Zanetti, Marked would be the start for me, although it would be the end for many of you who already follow the series.

Marked by Rebecca Zanetti was a quick read. What I mean by quick was it’s a book that you didn’t want to put down tell the very last page. Marked is the 7th book in the Dark Protectors Series. Janie Kayrs was prophesied since birth, that she along would save the world of the Vampires, Demons, Witches and Shifters.  As a young child of four she came to know a boy name Zane, who becomes a warrior of untold proportions.  When Janie finally meets Zane again, it’s with the trepidation that Zane’s the enemy and how can one love the enemy.

For those who had already read the other six in this series, you truly don’t want to miss the conclusion of this series. With hope and the way she ended Marked, Rebecca Zanetti, may surprise as all one day and revisits this series.
