Book Description

NEW YORK TIMES & USA TODAY Bestselling Author Tina Folsom presents: Zane's Redemption (Scanguards Vampires #5)

The last thing vampire bodyguard Zane wants to do is to guard a hybrid, a half-vampire, half-human, whose father wants to keep her a virgin. Known for his violent temper and callous lack of compassion, Zane's out-of-control rage, born of the cruelty he suffered during the Holocaust, drives him to focus only on revenge. Trying to find the last of his torturers is his only goal in life.

Portia is a young hybrid with a serious dilemma: in a few weeks, her body will be set in its final vampire form. If she is to avoid having to live out her immortal life as a virgin, she must find a lover in that short time--something her father hires Zane to prevent.

The moment Portia and Zane meet, rules begin to bend, and a forbidden attraction bursts into flames hotter than the hell of Zane's past. But that past threatens to pull them apart unless they can overcome their prejudice, forsake hate for love, and revenge for forgiveness.

5.0 out of 5 stars ZANE'S STORY November 5, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
This is the story that the fans have been waiting for Zane's story, and what a brilliant read it is, we finally get to see why Zane is the cold and brutal vampire he is. Once again he has fallen foul of the rules, so Samson has given him a babysitting job Zane is furious, but if he wants to keep his job then he will have to comply. Portia the girl he is to guard is not what Zane was expecting at all, he finds he can hardly keep his hands off of her. Portia is determined to have Zane she has never felt this way before. Even being in the same room with Zane drives her crazy. So she has set herself on a course to seduce him. How long can he hold out before he gives in.
I was looking forward to this instalment of the series but never thought it would be this good. The passion and emotion are well portrayed the reader is drawn into the story and the characters lives. The plot is full of action and suspense. The relationship between Zane and Portia is red hot. All the characters from the previous books are fully involved. Plus a few new characters I hope will be featured as the series progresses. I can hardly wait for the next book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Zane has stolen my heart November 5, 2011
By sioux_b
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Congratulations Tina! You have done it again! An amazing read that has shifted my heart from Amaury to Zane (no mean feat, I tell you!). Thank you for gifting us with this wonderfully insightful, tender and amazing instalment in the Scanguards series. We knew we would love him in Yvette's story but you have delivered a beautifully touching character that has won our hearts. A wonderful addition to the Scanguard Vampire series.

3.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining Enough To Pass The Time December 4, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've read all the previous books in this series and I have to say Samson and Amaury's stories were my favorite. I really enjoy the old school Vampires. (Can't be out in the sun, must sleep, etc). Zane was scary as crap to me the first few times he was mentioned in this series. I love the Jewish twist to his personality and I always love learning more and more about these vampires. BUT, the book was predictable and often times, ubber cheesy.

One recommendation to the author: Perfect set up for suspense, but you blow it/spoil it by giving too many hints or by stating the obvious. Leave it "implied" then when the revealing moment happens it makes it that much more powerful and BELIEVABLE.

5.0 out of 5 stars Be prepared to be surprised a bit... December 2, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Because the monsters that made Zane what he is today are based on real men and real events. Unlike other paranormal books where the 'tortured past' comes at the hands of fantasy creatures and fictional events, Folsom has pulled off something surprising.

She has meshed real events and real 'monsters' into her Zane's past, creating a story that made me sob in places. And that ain't a small feat (I seldom cry and books that make most people cry just make me roll my eyes in annoyance). To see that chunk of history treated with so much dignity and a character rising from it to become a redeemed hero is wonderful.

And a reminder that no fictional, fantasy, or made up evil can ever be a fraction as horrific as the real ones who have and continue to walk amoungst us. Maybe that is why paranormals often get a chuckle and an eyeroll from me when they try to scare me with zombies, werewolves and other unreal nasties. No, it's real live humans that scare the bejeebers out of me.

Oh yes, there is a great story too-- the rest of the Scanguards, their mates and even the new baby having strong roles. There are even puppies! And romance, hot sex and a relationship that develops so sweetly between Zane and Portia that it alone is a thing of grace. It's also a story of forgiveness and faith, of restoration to a former state of belief and strength.

Nicely done Ms Folsom, and thank you for making Zane not only a survivor, but a hero.

5.0 out of 5 stars A hot vampire story that will also move you December 5, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Zane's Redemption is the 5th book in the Scanguards Vampires series and it has not lost its steam and ability to pull the reader in with its compelling storyline and characters that regular readers of the series have come to love. Tina somehow manages to capture the essence of her characters and make them jump off the pages and come alive that you cannot help but feel their turmoil and passion throughout the book.

Regular readers of the series will remember Zane as the dangerous, reclusive Scanguard vampire that even his friends know to keep their distance at times or face his wraith. However, we get a closer look at Zane and learn about the past horrors he endured and understand the reason for him existing on hate and revenge alone until he meets Portia.

I thought Portia was the perfect fit for Zane and the right person that would be able to breakthrough the wall that he had erected around his heart to keep everyone out. Her sweet and innocent charm, her ability to see the passionate vampire underneath the cold exterior and understanding the deep pain he must have gone through to make him the way he was made Portia the perfect person for him.

I loved some of the banter that occurred in the book between Zane and Portia that showed the playful side of Zane. There were several scenes in the book that had me grinning from ear-to-ear and laughing out loud that people around me gave me strange looks. Without spoiling anything, the scenes with Yvette were hilarious. Oh and who could resist Z? ;)

Not only does the reader get to see the depths of Zane's anger, but also his passion. Portia ignites feelings inside Zane that he had refused to ever feel again surface to the top like a volcano.

Dang the next book is Quinn's story. I would have much rather had Thomas and Eddie. I don't read much gay romance but I really like Thomas and his unrequited love for Eddie is kind of sweet. I think I would really like a love story for him.
