“Sizzling.” —Kat Martin

“A fast-paced, excitement-filled explosion of action.” —RT Book Reviews on Marked, 4.5 Stars Top Pick

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 . . .

“Sizzling sex scenes and a memorable cast.” —Publishers Weekly on Claimed 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 . . .

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

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

When you first started writing about the Dark Protectors, did you want it as a series?

I really did want the books to be a series, because I love getting lost in a series and then visiting the characters whenever a new book comes out, so I figured I’d write what I wanted to read.  I hadn’t quite anticipated there would be ten stories (seven novels and three novellas) when I wrote Fated, however.  I’m glad it worked out this way. 

Is there a chance of a spin-off series from the Dark Protectors?

You bet there’s a chance of a spin-off series!  I was asked this a few times at the Authors After Dark convention this year, and I do think there are a couple of opportunities for new trilogies featuring the vampires, the witches, or shifters.  If readers want more of the Dark Protectors, I’d love to write more.

Do you plan on having Zane and Janie meet for the first time in real story life, in war or because of Kalin bringing them together?

Well, without giving too much away here, Janie and Zane will meet for the first time in real story life – basically their story.  Of course, Zane may meet somebody from Janie’s world in real time in Shadowed.

Do you stick with a planned outline or do the characters change things up; lead you off into different directions?

My characters take me wherever they want to go.  In fact, I’ve turned in proposals to my editor with paragraphs describing each book in a series, and by the time I write those books, I sometimes even change the names of the characters.  I don’t work with outlines.

Are you ever nervous about a book?

I’m not nervous about a book while I’m writing it, but once I send it to my editor, I get a little light-headed.  I also never want to let fans down, so I try really hard not to, and I do my best each time.  Hopefully my best keeps improving, because writing is one of those cool jobs where each book can be better than the last.

5 Excellent Stars (Thursday, September 27, 2018)
Reviewer: Stormy Vixen

The first book in the new Deep Ops series by Rebecca Zanetti is an exhilarating, suspenseful page turning read with bold electrifying character that easily draws readers into their story. Pippa and Malcolm are alike in some ways but complete opposites in others to begin with, but readers soon realize that not everything is as it seems and the sizzling chemistry drawing Malcolm and Pippa together is right on track. The relationship has some serious obstacles to be overcome including emotional issues, trust issues and secretive pasts and the readers can’t help but empathize and cheer for this couple as they reach for a well-deserved happily forever after.

The romance is sweet and the passion is hot but this fast paced and smooth flowing plot has way more in store for readers. Thrills and excitement abound throughout this story as Pippa hides who she is and where she come from and Malcolm finds himself working undercover on a case that involves Pippa and her past. A few twists and turns keeps readers guessing and the anticipation building as everyone tries to determine if Pippa is one of the bad guys or is she a victim as well. I was completely enthralled in this story from beginning to end, the story is full of wonderful and quirky characters that adds a bit of humor to the story as well adding to the team building camaraderie of a new team’s beginnings, a motely crew of what some may day is undesirables. Oh wait, I can’t forget about the pets in this story as they certainly deserve some attention and a few chuckles, so this is for you Roscoe and Kat! Hellooooooo! meow!
