Book Description

USA Today Bestselling Book

Danger signs rise off Jase Kayrs like steam--the scars, the secrets, the strength. He's got a mission, and he's not interested in much outside of it. Except Brenna Dunne.

Brenna was an ass-kicking, name-taking witch--before the poison that's killing her sapped her powers too. She knows there's more to Jase than a handsome face and an ugly history. But there's no time to find out what. Taking him as her mate might save her life. But once she unleashes the force of his desire, there will be no turning back...

Ready or not, here they come...

"Hot and fast from beginning to end." --Kate Douglas on Fated

Shadowed is proof that no other author does Paranormal Romance better than Rebecca Zanetti! I loved this novel! Readers are in for hot and dangerous vampire sex and an alpha hero.  Zanetti delivers a provocative novel of sex, love and danger! - Night Owl Reviews Top Pick Review

If you're a fan of paranormal romance, I think you'll really enjoy Shadowed. It is a touching story filled with drama, heart-racing action and lots of magic. ~ Harlequin Junkie

This story falls under my favorite trope of the wounded hero, and it did not disappoint. ~EBook Obsessed 5 star review

5.0 out of 5 stars Shadowed, A Review for the Blog Tea and Book October 3, 2013
By Shauni
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Thank you Rebecca Zanetti! I have been waiting oh so patiently (anyone believe that?) For Jase's story and was so excited to get my review copy from Netgalley. Often when we read a much anticipated story we get an anticlimactic feeling and need to read it a second or even third time to really appreciate it. Let me tell you all, that was SO not the case! I loved every heart stopping minute of this fabulous book.

For those of you who have not yet read Zanetti's Dark Protectors Series, I suggest you check it out.

The Kayrs Family are the leaders of the Vampire world. The strongest, the most powerful, the ones who defend against the darkness. Each brother has found his mate, except Jase. Jase, arguably the most powerful of the brothers, had been captured and tortured by the Demons for five long years. The family, finally got him out but it's been another five years and Jase's powers are still wonky and his emotional state is constantly in question. He has a chance to redeem those powers if he mates to Brenna, an 8 daughter of a 7th daughter (or as Ms Zanetti puts it the 8th sister of a 7th sister). With revenge on the brain Jase accepts the terms for the mating (adding just a few of his own) and discovers that there is so much more to this mating than he ever dreamed.

Brenna was an ass-kicking, name-taking witch (I loved that description so much I had to steal BORROW it) until she was forced to consume a poison that has been slowly killing her. Right about the time Jase had initially been taken captive.. hmmmmm.. anyway, now it's ten years later and there is no cure. Brenna is dying and her only chance at life is to mate, preferably with a powerful Vampire (since once mated the Vamps, share their powers with their mates) with the hope of his blood changing hers.

4.0 out of 5 stars Shadowed Jase and Brenna's Story October 3, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Shadowed by Rebecca Zanetti is the 6th book in the Dark Protector series and the couple this time is Jase and Brenna. Ever since Jase was captured and tortured by demons for 5 horrible years, all he wants now is revenge against them, especially against Suri, Malco and Willa. Brenna is dying, ever since she was kidnapped and planekite was forced down her throat 10 years ago. Now her only chance at living is mating with Jase and while Jase may be her cure to life, she may be his cure to happiness.

While Jase and Brenna come to terms with becoming each others mates they also have to deal with some very serious and stressing issues. What will happen to Breena during the upcoming winter solstice (many believe the comet will make Brenna a very powerful witch) so of course the Kurjans and Demons want to get a hold of her before the winter solstice. Trying to make the leader of Brenna's warriors Henry, who wants to marry Brenna, understand she can't and has no interest in mating with him. Dealing with the Crap group (the group is truly called that)who want to kill Brenna before the winter solstice.

Boy did Brenna not have it easy in this book. Having to mate with someone who only wants her for her powers, dodging marriage proposals and death threats are not such easy tasks to do but Brenna certainly does them and she does them in a way that makes her truly a "ass-kicking, name-taking witch."

And Jase... poor Jase. He is still trying to deal with surviving being tortured by the Demons and thinks getting revenge is the best way to cope. Luckily for him, Brenna teaches him to cope in a much better way.

I liked this book and couldn't wait to read Jase and Brenna's story. I always wondered about Brenna. She was sort of a mystery in previous books.

5.0 out of 5 stars fast, action packed paranormal romance October 3, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Shadowed Rebecca Zanetti.

Arc supplied by Netgalley.

My first Rebecca Zanetti read, and it definitely won't be my last! This was a great fun, fast paced novel. I need to empathise with and understand characters to enjoy a book, and Brenna caught me straight off. She was just one of those really likeable people, one you want to hug and to know that she was dying from a poisoning when she should be long lived as a witch - well hats so unfair. Then we meet Jase, one of the Kayrs brothers. Wow they're all very delicious, yummy, sexy vampires and Jase has that broody Alpha male thing that's so appealing, - and he has a soft side that is attracted to Brenna. He tells himself he's mating with her to save her life, she's a sweet, kind person and deserves that, and as he's no intent to find love and a mate otherwise its straightforward - well at least it gives her a chance at survival, and he may gain some of his powers back too. Bonus all round. Of course we can see that there's more than just practicality on both sides, that the strong attraction that sears between them is more than just physical, but neither are preprepared to recognise that yet. Brenna wants the chance to live so accepts his offer, hoping she can keep her heart intact, she knows that he's determined to wipe out the demons who imprisoned and tortured him for five years, and nothing, not even a mate, will stop him. She mustn't fall in love, that way lies heartbreak.
There's some discussions between everyone - poor Brenna, it felt like everyone had a right to know her personal history and I really felt for her, but it was simply that they cared for her and wanted the best for her.
