A Daring Rescue
Emma Paulsen is a geneticist driven by science. But she's also a psychic, so when a dark, good-hearted vampire frees her from the clutches of the evil Kurjans, she realizes he must be the man who's been haunting her dreams. But with a virus threatening vampires' mates, Emma may discover a whole new meaning of "lovesick". . .
A Deadly Decision
As King of the Realm, Dage Kayrs has learned to practice diplomacy. Still, it's taken three hundred years to find his mate, so he'll stop at nothing to protect her—even if it means turning his back on his own kind. . .

My Thoughts:

     I consider myself a HUGE fan of Rebecca Zanetti's "Dark Protector's" series. Which is Fated now Claimed. Before I started blogging, I wasn't a paranormal fan. And now I'm hooked. Not only am I hooked but I'm hooked on this series. Rebecca's books have a little bit of everything. It has Action, Science, Romance and my favorite it's sexy! It's so sexy it's steamy. Though it has sexy and steamy scenes, it's written very tastefully. I love her writing. PERIOD. This series has become one of my favorite series.

     "Claimed" practically picked up right away from where "Fated" left off. So that's a good thing. You won't miss any in between scenes. I love when an author picks up where they left off. Claimed is the story of the oldest brother which happens to be the king. His name is Dage and he's one sexy vampire. In fact all the brothers are sexy. If I were one of their mates, I wouldn't let my mate out of my sight. The power they all possess will make any woman fall on her knees (Literally).

   Emma is being chased by the Kurjans (Bad guys) but Emma happens to be Dage's mate and their is NO way he's going to let anything happen to her. Not as long as he's alive. Yes in this series vampires can get killed but not by your typical stake through the heart. It's different. And I won't tell you how because I want you to read the book (series). So Dage knows that Emma is his mate but Emma being the independent stubborn woman she is, refuses to submit herself to any man. Even if it's someone as sexy as Dage. And boy is he sexy.

     In Claimed, there is a virus threatening all the vampires mates. And when the virus hits Cara, Emma's sister, it gets more personal. So Emma along with Kane (another sexy vampire/brother), they join together and research the virus and work to find a cure. This virus affects only the mates of vampires. Basically what happens is once the vampire brands their mate, they sort of become immortal as well. And what this virus does is, it makes them human again. What's the reason behind the virus, well you have to read the book to find out. So Emma is determined to find a cure to save her sister.  But while working on a cure for the virus, Emma is also fighting her desires for Dage. And when you read about them too, you can't help but get a little hot and bothered. It's obvious they have chemistry and it's clear that they're meant for each other. If she just gives in.

     Rebecca will be stopping by Good Choice Reading and is giving away a copy of each of her novels. So make sure you come back and sign up for a AUTOGRAPHED copy of her books. Need I say that this book is a Definite Good Choice for Reading? Because it most definitely is!
