Claimed is an adventure from the first page. It starts out strong and finishes even stronger...Between the action of fighting the Kurjans and the sizzling sex between the two antagonists, this book is hot from start to finish.--Affaire de Coeur Book Reviews

From the Author

Thank you for checking out Claimed, which is Book 2 in the Dark Protector Series.  Here's one of my favorite quick blurbs from the book:

His gaze swept her head to toe.  "You're wearing my colors, love."  He stalked forward and leaned down to brush her cheek with a kiss.  "Soon you'll be wearing me," he whispered for her ears only.

She writes dark paranormals, romantic suspense, and sexy contemporary romances.

Growing up amid the glorious backdrops and winter wonderlands of the Pacific Northwest has given Rebecca fantastic scenery and adventures to weave into her stories. She resides in the wild north with her husband, children, and extended family who inspire her every day--or at the very least give her plenty of characters to write about.

Claimed starts exactly where Fated left off, with high octain speed that will have you gripping the book! I did not see the twists coming, and I found myself flying through the story to find out what happens next. The Kayrs brothers are dripping hot, and the love scenes will leave you fanning yourself! The most endearing parts are when little Janie skips in. I'm dying to know what will happen with the little one!
If you're looking for a heart pounding, sexy adventure with a bite, then you've got to read this one!

Rebecca Zanetti's sophomore title sure delivered. Dage is an awesome leader. Emma a brilliant heroine. Stubborn, strong, weak, enduring all rolled into a beautiful woman.

I loved all the action in this one. Tons of fighting and battling. I have to admit, though, the romance part was a bit .... rougher than I care for. I kept waiting for some tenderness to be shown, yet I didn't see that. Then again, I lean more toward the softer side of romance so it's just personal preference.

It was fun watching their transformations together. How they started becoming one with their powers and how strong Dage turned out to be. The plot is deep and well structured as are the characters. I really like the introduction of the new characters, which I hope eventually have their own stories.

Especially the witches.

I really love Rebecca Zanetti's writing. So visual and engrossing, I can't put her books down until I've read just one more chapter (and lost hours of sleep!) Her story telling skills are right up there with the best in the paranormal romance business. She's on my auto-buy list for sure.

Nicely done, Rebecca.

Format: Paperback
Dage, as king of the Realm, has the incredibly important job of keeping his race and other paranormals safe from the Kurjans. Those intent of kidnapping human with special abilities, so they can breed with them. One such woman is Emma, a brilliant scientist who may hold the key to unraveling a devastating illness affecting other mates and breeding women.

Faced with startling revelations that she is Dages impending Queen and the even more startling, she wants him...Emma can't decide what to do. Does she go with her heart and become a breeding mate, even if Dage does set her body on fire by merely glancing at her? Does she go with her mind and focus on solving the genetic mystery surrounding everyone she loves? Or can she do both without losing herself in the process?

I don't know about anyone else, but I waited for this book with bated breath! When it showed up everything else in my TBR pile suddenly disappeared and this one became my sole focus. I was not let down! I loved Claimed nearly as much as I loved the first book, Fated. Rebecca Zanetti seems to be able to catch my attention and hold me enraptured throughout the process. Never a dull moment. Always sexy.

Dage was scary hot. He often referred to Emma as "mate' which I found incredibly sexy. There is just something about a big, scary hulk of a man calling his woman "mate" in such a sexy domineering way. Yes, it's over the top, yes its extremely dominate but I love it. I think it works because of the females. They may waver at the beginning, try to run from the emotional connection they are fighting within, but in the end they give themselves over to what I can only describe as magical.

I enjoyed Emma a lot. I loved her protective streak and thought her willingness to try to shield Cara was endearing.

Can you say delicious? I can... CLAIMED.

Just when I thought Fated was as spicy as Zanetti could get, she whips out Claimed and I gotta say, the heat is on (totally stole that from a song).

I don't summarize, but the action is phenom! Love her voice and the way she weaves a sexy tale!

READ IT! Now. Hurry!

Format: Paperback
I am going to start off by saying that I loved Emma! She didn't cause me to want to pull my hair out like her sister Cara (the heroine in book 1). Claimed starts off with Dage rescuing Emma from the Kurjans. Emma has been on the run for 5 weeks and the Kurjans has finally caught up to her. Like Cara, Emma has extra abilities; she's a psychic. Emma has been dreaming about Dage since she was a teenager so there is no surprise when she is face-to-face with him. Dage is psychic also and he has known for centuries that Emma is his destined mate. Emma has known this as well but she does not want to become his mate because she had a vision of her eventual death and how it destroys Dage.

The sexual tension between Dage and Emma is so believable. Emma does not make it easy for Dage. She knows all about the mating and the branding but she is not going to give in. Her goal is to find a cure for the drug that the Kurjans had her working on and then moving on with her life. She has no plans on becoming the Kind of the Realm's mate, destiny or no destiny. Dage has other plans for Emma. He has been dreaming about her for centuries and there's no way he is going to let her slip away easily.

I felt that Dage and Emma's relationship had more heat and tension that made the romance between them more believable. In the first book, Fated, Cara gave in too early to Talen and Talen didn't come off as the alpha male that we are supposed to believe him to be. Emma is a geneticist so when she is trying to find a way to counteract the virus that the Kurjans injected into Cara and Katie, there is a lot of scientific jargon throughout the book. Some of it made my eyes glaze over and I felt that at times, it was too detailed.
