ABOUT THE BOOK: Release Date July 2, 2013
His Secrets Can Destroy Her
From the moment Josie laid eyes on sexy, mysterious Shane Dean, she was in love. Their desire ignited a passionate affair, and within weeks, Shane had slipped a ring on her finger. It seemed her every fantasy was coming true . . . until her new husband disappeared without a trace. Now, two years and one broken heart later, Josie is shocked by the hospital calls: Shane has been found . . . at a crime scene with no memory of how he got there.
Her Love Can Save Him
Shane can’t remember the blue-eyed angel at his bedside—or who he even is—but he knows something isn’t right. His hearing is razor sharp, his physical strength incredible, and the urge to protect Josie overwhelming. For powerful enemies are hunting him, and Josie is the key to discovering why. As Shane struggles to unravel his past, dangerous new truths come to light. Can he protect the only woman he’s ever loved? And can Josie trust a man she thought she knew—one who carries such a deadly secret?
REVIEW: FORGOTTEN SINS is the first storyline in Rebecca Zanetti’s new SINS BROTHERS series focusing on four brothers and their connections to everything dark, dangerous and passionate. This is Josie and Shane’s story.
Rebecca pulls the reader into a story of suspense, mystery and one man’s need to protect the woman that he loves. But Shane found himself beaten and down and no memory of what had happened. And to complicate matters, his wife has filed for divorce after his two year absence.
It has been two years since the day Shane walked out of her life and never returned. But a call from the authorities, alerting her to her husband’s whereabouts, will find Josie torn between the anger that has kept her going and the love for a man who disappeared without a trace. Shane is unable to answer Josie’s questions and the authorities believe he is hiding behind a ruse of lost memories and forgotten sins.
The storyline is a roller coaster of emotions: from love to hate; betrayal and trust; anger and pain; family and friends. Along with his brothers, Shane has been trained by the best-but who and what these people are –are another mystery. When Josie’s life is threatened, Shane’s memories begin to return revealing a dark secret and a military past. Only this military is one that the public knows nothing about.
The relationship between Josie and Shane is electric. Following a two year absence from his mate, Shane’s heart and his soul belong only to one woman but a woman he abandoned without a word. The sexual attraction is fueled by Josie’s anger and Shane’s need to get reacquainted with the beautiful woman he can no longer remember. As his memories return, so too does the need and the longing they once felt for each other.
We are introduced to Shane’s family and learn a little about their past as well as the demons who haunt their nightmares and daily lives. I will say there is a slight paranormal feel to the story but only slight as it pertains to military experiments and secret operations.
FORGOTTEN SINS is an amazing story that introduces the premise behind the dangerous lives and secret organizations that threaten our hero and heroine at every step. The reader is pulled into a story of mystery and suspense that is only matched by the heat and passion of sexual attraction. I might add that if you are a fan of Christine Feehan’s Ghostwalker series you will like Rebecca Zanetti’s Sins Brothers series. Although this particular story and series focuses on the Dean brothers, Rebecca has left plenty of room for future storylines involving other ‘brothers’ and their ‘families’
