Editorial Reviews


The fast-paced...adventure sends vampire Conn to Ireland in search of Moira, the witch he claimed as a mate a century before. Only together can these two unite their races... Zanetti continues to mix action, passion, and intrigue as she picks up on threads from the previous books. Strong chemistry and steamy love scenes.   -- Publisher's Weekly

Hunted is an exciting continuation of a story I love! When I finish each book I feel sad and anxious for the next one and that is a mark of an excellent series. Zanetti weaves an enchanting story with Hunted that is sure to please paranormal romance lovers everywhere!  I give Hunted by Rebecca Zanetti 5 stars!  --Nikki Brandyberry Reviews

In Zanetti's entire series, she mixes up your emotions, especially with this novel. [The novels] are AMAZING!  As always 5/5 stars a definite Good Choice for Reading! -- Good Choice Reading Reviews

The action-packed storyline is fast-paced as Conn claims the witch he is fated to mate with while betrayal leaves their relationship and their family and friends in peril. Sub-genre fans will enjoy Rebecca Zanetti's exciting novel as the vampire and the witch prove absence makes the heart (and other body parts) grow fonder.  -- Harriet Klausner

If you have read Fate & Claimed. Hunted will not disappoint. There is a lots of action, lots of emotion and even some mile high sex *wiggles eyebrows* If you have not started Rebecca's Dark Protector's series. I would HIGHLY recommend you get started. -- Kelly at Books-N-Kisses

From the Author

Hi!  Thank you for checking out Hunted, which is the third book in the Dark Protector series, after Fated and Claimed.  (Tempted is an e-novella published after Claimed and before Hunted).  Here's my favorite quick blurb from Hunted:

"That's Daire's bike," Moira said, grabbing a sleek silver helmet off the handle of a red Ducati and swinging her leg over the side. "Scratch her, and he'll kill you." She settled into place, flashing Conn a saucy grin. "Then I won't have to worry about it anymore."

Something thumped hard in Conn's chest. His mate straddled the bike like a natural . . . sleek and dangerous. Sexy as hell. She unclipped her hair and shook out her curls before tugging on the helmet, and he fought a groan. Hell, He fought the urge to yank her off and coax her to ride him instead.

100 years ago Moira was accidentally marked by the vampire warrior Conlan in a burst of passion so bright it nearly made her weep. After Con disappeared Moira found it easy to convince herself that he never wanted her and wouldn't be coming back for a mate he never intended on having. The war between vampires and Kurjans is heating up and suddenly Con is back in Moira's life. He claims for good but Moira is the seventh sister to the seventh sister and is a powerful witch now. She doesn't need a possessive overbearing mate screwing with her life.

Leaving Moira so many years ago was the hardest thing Con has ever done. Except maybe staying gone all those years. He knew she needed time to learn and hone her powers but Con desperately wanting to go back. Now that the war is upon him and his brothers, a mate disease is running rampant and the witches are being threatened, Con can finally go claim what is rightfully his. Not a moment to soon either because someone has their sights set on Moira and no one close to her is exactly what they seem.

*Le sigh* I. Love. This. Series. So. Much! Rebecca Zanetti is a friggin genius and if I lived in her state I'd be her new bestie. Ok...wait...that sounds stalkerish. Let's start over. I love this series and it just keeps getting better and better! I think Zanetti is hitting her stride and I for one hope she can keep up the steam.

Conlan and Moira have been brewing a long time. There has been hints of Con's past within the last books and when I heard Hunted would be his book I was ecstatic! Zanetti didn't let me down either. I fell in love with Con and Moira on page one. Moira with her feisty and "I can handle everything" attitude and Con always wanting to protect his very capable mate. ALPHA - you know me them.

Another to add to my keep shelf!

This was my introduction to Rebecca Zanetti, and her stories, and yes, I am aware that this is not the first book in her series, but given that I didn't even KNOW it was a series until after I read, there was no problem, with whether or not the story would work as a standalone.

I chose this book, because I love books about witches and of course because it was a romance, and I was NOT disappointed.

I would recommend this book to all my friends, and anyone who likes a good paranormal romance. The details where terrific, and I love the way Moira is so sweet, she wanted Conn to claim her all those years ago, and has made herself into a very powerful witch waiting on him. Conn is fantastic character in his own right, formidable, though I was worried, because the vampire bit is a bit cliché now with all the vampire stories out there. BUT he was a different sort than I'm used to reading about so it was a refreshing new take in my opinion. He's very take-charge, but he clearly cares about her, I loved him as the male lead.

Rebecca Zanetti, is for sure going on my list of authors to look out for, and of course, now that I've read Hunted, I will most likely being go back to find the other books in her series as well- and I have to say, I LOVED the way she started Hunted. The chemistry was awesome; the brisk pace of the story line, and of course, the abundance of action- you couldn't ask for a better story.

Read this book, you won't regret it.

The first chapter of Hunted hits the ground running. Strong personalities, high tempers, steamy chemistry, powerful longing, and unexpected consequences fairly fly off the pages.

Moira is a powerful witch, and we're not talking Sabrina nose-twitching magic. This is smart magic, requiring decades of study in quantum physics and string theory. When it comes to kick-butt heroines, Moira Dunne is the gold standard. Innately magically gifted, fiercely physically trained, and determined to do her duty to both her people and her mate, Moira is a firebrand of crackling, spunky, red-headed temper and focused power. With the combined lethality of her and Connlan, this is one duo you never want to cross.

I really like the idea that mated pairs share their supernatural skills. It makes them a united front, a team that backs each other up and builds on each other's strengths... very much like a marriage. It also means Connlan is far above average intelligence, and is there anything sexier than a man who is built, strong, confident, a natural leader, downright deadly with his body and with his energy, AND smart enough to bend spacetime with his mind?

Conn is the most lethal vampire alive, the ultimate soldier. His personality reminds me a little of Christian Grey from the Fifty Shades Trilogy: alpha and authoritative, determined like a freight train, a powerhouse in the bedroom, and incredibly good at his job. He's not quite as micromanaging as Fifty, but he certainly believes in trying to keep his mate under constant lockdown for her safety, regardless of her 30+ years of serving as an Enforcer for the witch's council. Their attraction both smolders and scorches. Intense, and as powerful as an atomic bomb, the energy between these two is off the charts.
