We are thrilled to bring you the Review for TEASED by Rebecca Zanetti!
TEASED is a novella in the world of her Dark Protectors Series, brought to you by 1001 Dark Nights. It was released on December 8, 2015, be sure to grab a copy of this sexy novella today!
For almost a century, the Realm’s most deadly assassin, Chalton Reese, has left war and death in the past, turning instead to strategy, reason, and technology. His fingers, still stained with blood, now protect with a keyboard instead of a weapon. Until the vampire king sends him on one more mission; to hunt down a human female with the knowledge to destroy the Realm. A woman with eyes like emeralds, a brain to match his own, and a passion that might destroy them both—if the enemy on their heels doesn’t do so first.
Olivia Roberts has foregone relationships with wimpy metro-sexuals in favor of pursuing a good story, bound and determined to uncover the truth, any truth. When her instincts start humming about missing proprietary information, she has no idea her search for a story will lead her to a ripped, sexy, and dangerous male beyond any human man. Setting aside the unbelievable fact that he’s a vampire and she’s his prey, she discovers that trusting him is the only chance they have to survive the danger stalking them both.
I really had to reach far back to remember who Chalton Reese was in the prior books. There has been minimal mention of the assassin in the prior Dark Protector series, but not enough that his name jumped out at me.
In this installment, Dage (the King of the Realm) orders Chalton, to find a journalist named Olivia Roberts because she may have uncovered information concerning the Realm and most importantly, a clue to who their leak might be.
In the typical Dark Protector fashion, there is an instantaneous attraction between Chalton and Olivia but because this is a novella, the romance was a fast development. That’s the only real downside to reading short stories about relatively new characters, everything happens in a blink of an eye.
With that said, Rebecca Zanetti is one of my favorite authors and her writing NEVER disappoints. Her heroines are strong, smart and resourceful. Her heroes are definitely alpha males, but they are also sweet and sexy, even for a computer geek like Chalton. I enjoyed this book and I am glad we got a tiny peak of what Dage and the Realm had been up to since Janie Belle saved everyone.
If you are a follower of the Dark Protector series, this book falls right in line with the prose you are acquainted with. If you aren’t familiar with the series, this isn’t a good starting point. While the author does a good job of giving background to this world, this series should be read in order starting with Fated (Dark Protectors #1).
