Book Description

A TIME FOR WAR…

A casualty of the war between the demons and the vampires, Jase Kayrs has been missing for six long years. His older brothers want answers—but they’re going to have to get them from an unlikely source. For when Kane Kayrs tracks down Amber Freebird, what he finds is a blonde, vegan pacifist who has no intention of using her skills in his war…

A TIME FOR LOVE…

Amber enjoys her life of chaotic freedom and has no intention of falling in line just because a sexy-as-sin vampire insists on order. Unfortunately, he discovers she may be the only hope they have of finding his brother, and there’s no way he’s going to let her go—even if it means mating her to gain her cooperation. The two are as different as can be, yet when the dominant Kane and the untamed Amber finally unite to rescue Jase, they just may find that opposites really do attract…

“Hot and fast from beginning to end.”

—Kate Douglas on Fated



Editorial Reviews

Review

Kane is memorable enough that I am still thinking about him 2 weeks and half a dozen books later. He is an incredibly dedicated lover, and his combination of meticulous attention to detail and raw force of personality makes for some smokin' scenes between him and Amber. -- GraveTells Reviews

I really enjoyed Kane and Amber's story.  AAAhhhhh Kane Kayrs. The smart brother, the brother with all the answers. The know it all brother. Well Kane just met his match in the form of a very feisty female. -- Books-n-Kisses Reviews

5 Star Review - I love how Amber twists up the stoic and logical Kane...All I can say is, I need more! Please write faster! -- EbookObsessed Reviews

From the Author


Thanks for taking a look at PROVOKED!  Here's one of my favorite quick blurbs from the book:


Kane peered down at her. "Amber?"

"Yes?"

"If you're going to attack with whatever's in your right hand, could you hurry it up? We need to get going."

She started, her gaze slashing up to him. "How did you know?"

He shrugged. "What kind of a knife do you have?"

Her cheeks pinkened, and she drew her hand forward. "I have a pen."
 
A blue ballpoint pen. He blinked twice, his gaze on the harmless tool.

Maybe it was the ridiculousness of the pen. Maybe it was the woman's courage in planning to use it on him. Or maybe it was the sheepish half-smile she gave.

Either way, his heart rolled over.

Warmth flushed through him, so hot, so fast, his ears rang. His mind blanked. For the first time in centuries, his brain shut off. The woman was crazy. Stepping in, he grasped her chin, tilting her head back.

Her eyes widened, and then her gaze lowered to his lips. A soft sound of surprise emerged with her breath.

He dove in, allowing the animal within to awaken. For the first time in three centuries, there was no thought. All instinct ruled as his mouth took hers...no finesse, no calculation, just pure, raw need. He shoved her against the truck, his other hand clutching her hip as he went deeper.

Honeysuckle exploded along his taste buds as his tongue swept inside her mouth. Not gentle, not persuasive, just taking. Claiming.

And it wasn't enough. Not even close to enough.

Pressing into her, body to body, heat to heat, something clicked. Beyond his brain, beyond his body...somewhere deeper.
 
Finally, he found home.

5.0 out of 5 stars LITERAL ADDICTION's Review of Provoked November 1, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Associate Reviewer - Mich M:

We rejoin the Kayrs brothers four years after the events in Consumed.

Kane is the midddle Kayrs brother and he's always seemed very straight laced, he's a scientist and if he can't measure something in a lab then it doesn't exist. However he is a Kayrs afterall and that means he is a trained warrior, his idea of fun is to hunt down werewolves. When Kane is charged with finding the Demon Destroyer there is a lot at stake. His baby brother, Jase was captured by the demons almost four years prior and has been tortured daily, they have no idea if they will find him alive or if his mind will survive. They need the Demon Destroyer's help to save him from captivity. When Kane finally tracks the Demon Destroyer down she is nothing like what he expected.

Amber is nearing the end of her shift at the bar when she feels someone watching her, she fels an instant attraction to the stranger but when he opens his mouth and starts talking about vampires and demons she thinks he belongs in the loony bin.

Can Kane win Amber's trust? Can the fiesty Amber get Kane to loosen up an believe in the unmeasurable?

I thorughly enjoyed this book, I loved seeing Kane so out of sorts when faced with Amber. She was perfect for him. My heart broke for Jase, he's been the Kayrs brother that has intrigued me from the start, I can't wait to get to know him better. The triangle between Janie, Kalin & Zane is really starting to get interesting. Now that Janie isn't a litte girl anymore. Their story is what the whole series is building for and it's going to be epic.

Provoked
by Rebecca Zanetti

This is my favorite book from The Dark Protectors Series!

The book description provides an adequate idea of what one should expect, so I will only provide my thoughts and opinions...

This installment of the series was Kane Kayrs' HEA with Amber Freebird. Although he is the least emotive of the five Kayrs brothers due to his inherently analytical, logical and scientific proclivities, Kane turned out to be one DOMinating vampire--literally and figuratively.

Who knew Kane Kayrs was such an über-alpha male?!? It never fails--it's the quiet intellectuals that always seem to have that `little extra something' under the hood, so to speak....

The elements of BDSM were absolutely appropriate for Kane's character, as he was the only brother who consistently controlled his (and everyone else's) emotions. It made sense that he would also maintain that control in his bedroom, which ultimately provided the hottest `mating scene'--EVER! I LOVED IT... LOVED HIM!

And yes, whips and chains DO excite me... so, I may be somewhat biased regarding this book.☺

The action, emotion and suspense quickly moved this story along. The exposition designed to provide the back-story at various times was appropriate and did not affect the scenes in any way; the pacing was perfect.

It was great to visit the other brothers, their mates and the extended family units. Jase's circumstances were ferreted out and partially resolved in this novel. I am definitely looking forward to a complete and total resolution as it relates to Jase (hopefully, soon). Janie and her two suitors are still a huge mystery and such an intriguing story arc--I can't fathom where this story line is headed, but I am `in for the long haul.'

This was an incredibly exciting and (at times) intense read. I can't wait to see what's next...

5.0 out of 5 stars Rebecca Zanetti does not disappoint!! EVER!!!! November 6, 2012
By rad

The only problem with Rebecca Zanetti books are that I CAN NOT wait for the Next book!

Provoked is book number 6 but classified number 5 since tempted is a novella. I have been waiting for Kane's book for a while. Kane is the middle brother, a Scientist and doesn't believe in Love since you can't measure it or see itin his lab. So therefore it doesn't exist. When this book picks up they are still trying to find the baby brother of the group, Jase. Jase was capture by demons about four years earlier. So Kane is being sent to find the "Demon Destroyer". The "DD" aka Amber will help the Brother in there attempt to save Jase from the demons.

Loved Kane! He is so straight laced yet when "Provoked" by his mate...the Alpha finally Takes CHARGE in all the right ways.
Another thing I loved about this book is Janie. I am on Pins and needles for what is to come.

3.0 out of 5 stars Still good April 8, 2013
By JC
Format:Paperback
I am still enjoying this series and thought that Kane finding his love interest was good. This series is an easy read and I feel as they go through all the brothers it is getting thinner and thinner. I look forward to the series finally focusing on Janie. I would slate this book in the series a 6. I think as they focus more on the war and the other brothers, the main characters don't have enough time to be developed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Kane and Amber are my fave! November 19, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Finally catching up on one of my favorite vampire series! I just happened to stumble across the Dark Protectors series a year or so ago and absolutely fell in love! The world is so developed and I really want to know everything about all of the characters. Ms. Zanetti is a wonderful writer and brings so much passion and depth into her books. I have to admit besides Janie's story, Kane's is the one story I could not wait to read. I love that he is so intellectual and he bares the weight of the world on his shoulders. I wanted to meet the woman who was going to help him through the war they are facing and the disappearance of his brother, Jase.

I was so surprised by the choice for Kane's heroine, I was thinking someone more like Emma or strong willed like Cara. But, after the first few pages I knew that Amber was the perfect fit for Kane. She is almost his complete opposite and tilts his world on end. As a pacifist, Amber is against all of the violence that inherently comes of Kane Kayrs' world, but she must learn to fight in order to save her grandmother. It was a little oxymoronic that she is a demon destroyer, and one of few who can protect the vampires against psychic attacks. The development of Amber's powers was quite fun to watch, I loved that she never gave in and stood by her principles and what she believed in. So far in the series I think Amber has come out the most kick ass heroine yet. She may not be as book smart as Kane but she matches his intellect in every way that matters. All of the heroines have had to cope with their mates being uber overprotective, and while Amber does her fair share of coping she also refuses to be anything but Kane's equal.

Kane, being an intellect and having experienced more heartbreak than any one person should, does not believe in love.
