This is the third book in Teresa Gabelman’s series The Protectors. It is the culmination of Pam and Duncan’s story! Their story began in book one and continued to thread through the next. Can true love defeat evil?
Pam is a woman on a mission. She loves her job and the children that she helps to protect. Unknown to her, she has been used as part of an experiment by her boyfriend. He has been injecting her with a drug and abusing her to gain information about the children she cares for. When Pam discovers what is happening she tries to hang on and get as much information as possible to help the children as well as the VC warriors. Pam finally has to run. Her body cannot continue to take the abuse that her ex, Kenny is dishing out. Who can she trust? Where can she go and be safe?
Duncan knew from the moment he met Pam that she was his mate. He has tried to leave her alone, but cannot help but try to protect her. When she disappears he knows that she is in trouble and he must find her before it is too late. What has happened to her? Why didn’t she come to the VC warriors for help? Who is after her and why? Duncan knows that he will protect her with his last breath; he just needs to find her.
When Duncan and Pam reunite things really start to heat up. Can he keep her safe? What secret is Pam hiding? Read this amazing book and you will be pulled into the world of the VC warriors!

Would I recommend this book: Yes. Beautiful love story between a vampire warrior and a human female that is slowly being turned into more!
Would I recommend this author: Yes. This is an author that continues to grow and produce amazing novels. Love her series and cannot wait to read the next book!
What worked - Loved new guy Slade and Jill together. Sid is in rare form. Adam is turning into a very interesting character. Way fewer grammatical errors.
What didn't work so well - I felt no connection to Duncan at all. I got the feeling that Duncan wasn't "speaking" to the author, so she compensated by kitchen sinking with the other couples - Slade and Jill get a lot of screen time. Damon and Nicole, as well as Jared and Tessa, are having issues. Speaking of Tessa, we got to rehash all of her many and varied body/self-esteem issues, to Jared's detriment. Blah. Been there, bored with it. Recognize your worth, girl.
Pam was okay, I guess. She has been brutalized by her ex, and is now pregnant. While I get that she wants to reclaim her own power, I thought the road to intimacy with Duncan was off. I don't know, the whole thing felt weird. The whole Pam/Duncan thing felt weird, and I didn't really care about them as a couple until the end of the book.
Once again, our alpha males sit around and wait for the action to come to them. Duncan pines away in his office, while Pam is a few miles away. In her HOMETOWN. So, yeah, why would the guys think to look for her there, right?!? And this Chad guy...once he gets out of the Council compound, he's still in the city, but can our guys find him? No. No, they cannot. Nor can they locate Kenny. Are you seeing the pattern here? So. Frustrating.
***BIG SPOILER***At the end of the book, we find out that Angelina has been kidnapped to be sold into slavery. If she is waiting for our intrepid heroes to save her...well, let's just say her chances are not good for recovery.***END SPOILER***
Three books in, I still recognize character development as a strength for this author. She is good at giving each character a unique voice, and humorous dialogue abounds. Actual sentence structure, backstory, realism...these are pitfalls. Stop telling me what went into the omelet, and instead, tell me about Duncan's past. If these guys are Protectors, isn't there an Investigator team that can help them be a bit more proactive?
Bottom line - I can't help but think this series could be so much better if it was fleshed out more. There is no mythology - the vampires are essentially super strong, long-lived humans with fangs who drink blood. No sun issues, no...nothing. Again, no back story. No talent for, you know, finding anyone who doesn't walk into their offices. I am a character-centric reader, which is the only reason I am continuing with the series. I have already purchased Sid's book, so I will read that, but I think that's gonna do it for me.
I hated that if one of the women in each book received a compliment, their lovers would threaten to maim the person giving said compliment. Also, just about every time someone wanted to get steamy, you best believe someone was knocking on the door- always the same situation. The characters all started out great for me, but they all seemed the same as well. (Probably because they were all written by the same person, duh) but their personalities blended for me which made it feel like I was just reading one long story. Back stories on all of the men are basically nothing and they all seem to talk like juveniles (calling each other 'bro' and what not)
I don't know. These books are ok, but Duncan will be my last purchase. I'm curious about other couples in this story, but I'd much rather save myself the time and get my fix from the reviews.
The characters do not disappear in any of the stories, instead we get additional hotness to contend with...it is tough to deal with, but I will try my hardest to continue! 😘
On that note, I have to run...book 4 is calling my name, and I really need to see Sid get taken down...hehehe
