TEMPTED (Dark Protectors 2.5) by Rebecca Zanetti-a review
ABOUT THE BOOK: Release Date March 2012
On the run from a mental institution and her vindictive half-brother, it’s safe to say that Sarah Pringle’s happy life as a schoolteacher is on hold. Too bad that as far as self-defense goes, “run and hide” is the best she’s got. And with the monsters that started her escape hot on her heels, that’s not going to cut it for long…
That is, unless Sarah has a bigger, badder, hotter monster on her side. Max Petrovsky is right at the top of the list of alpha male ass-kickers. And he knows exactly what Sarah’s up against. Good thing, because the minute he sees her something primal kicks in, turning everyday attraction into red-hot desire. As long as they’re cooperating, why not mix some pleasure with business? Of course, Max should probably tell Sarah he’s a vampire himself…
ABOUT THE SERIES from Rebecca Zanetti:
The Kayrs family leads not only the vampire nation, but also the Realm, which is a coalition of vampires, shifters, and witches. Years ago, an evil vampire race called the Kurjans declared war on the Realm by creating a deadly virus that infects vampire mates. The virus attacks chromosomal pairs and takes mates from immortal to human, and maybe down to death. No cure for the virus has been found for mates, and the vampires, who are male only, know that time is running short.
REVIEW: TEMPTED is the March 2012 novella from Rebecca Zanetti in her Dark Protectors series. As we begin our feature with Rebecca’s TWISTED tour I wanted to do a quick read and review of one of the storyline installments. TEMPTED is Max and Sarah’s story.
Sarah is on the run; escaping from a psychiatric facility where she has been held in confinement against her will and by her half-brother’s decree, Sarah knows there are others out there not quite human. But after witnessing the ‘others’ in action, she knows that her confinement has more to do with her vindictive brother than her eye witness account of vampire like creatures, known as the Kurjans, and murders.
Max is a vampire. Hoping to track down Sarah, he will come face to face with the woman who would one day be his mate. But first, Max must ensure Sarah’s safety, if only the woman would stop running; and secondly, his fellow vampires need Sarah to ensure the continuation of their own kind-she holds the secret to the virus that takes the females mates of vampires from immortal to human.
TEMPTED is a quick paced storyline that furthers some of the Dark Predators series. Rebecca’s pulls the reader into her world of vampires and Kurjans and a war between the species. If you are a fan of the paranormal and want to read a different kind of vampire series, Dark Predators is a must on your TBR list.
