From the Author
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.

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.
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.Read more ›
I said this before about Fated, I wish other paranormal authors would copy Ms. Zanetti's lead and write paranormal books without abusing, beating the crap an or nearly raping the females in the story. Ms. Zanetti has proven you can write a scary dangerous story without all the abuse to women. VERY WELL DONE MS. ZANETTI!! I highly recommend this book and this entire series. You will not be disappointed and you will finish the story with feeling Up and Happy and Not Down Sad!!
Despite that exciting premise, this is perhaps the most boring paranormal romance novel I've ever read. She plays hot and cold, sometimes avoiding intimacy for unstated reasons, yet abruptly forgetting the issue entirely whenever he initiates intimacies. What astonishingly poor her self control. The erotica is entirely bland, and the book does not seem to build to anything. We are treated to such unexciting events as a formal party where nothing happens at great length, a boring business meeting, and a new building tour. Yawn. The "fight a virus" theme does not progress despite it being mentioned on nearly every page, and the author plays "I won't tell you why" with the leading lady's motivations for such a long time that we cease to care---after all, she is already married to him by about 20% of the way through the book, so we know he & she will work it out. There is barely any interpersonal conflict between them as a couple, and scant depth to anyone's personality. We are constantly told she is smart, but she never acts that way.
On the positive side, the sentence structure and grammar is good; and the free intro is fabulous. Um...that is about it.
