From the Author
Hi! Thank you for checking out Hunted, which is the third book in the Dark Protector series, after Fated and Claimed. (Tempted is an e-novella published after Claimed and before Hunted). Here's my favorite quick blurb from Hunted:
"That's Daire's bike," Moira said, grabbing a sleek silver helmet off the handle of a red Ducati and swinging her leg over the side. "Scratch her, and he'll kill you." She settled into place, flashing Conn a saucy grin. "Then I won't have to worry about it anymore."
Something thumped hard in Conn's chest. His mate straddled the bike like a natural . . . sleek and dangerous. Sexy as hell. She unclipped her hair and shook out her curls before tugging on the helmet, and he fought a groan. Hell, He fought the urge to yank her off and coax her to ride him instead.

For starters, it is well written. Writing mechanics are good and the world building and story line remain consistent with the earlier books. There are some typos, not enough to affect the reader's enjoyment, but I expected better from a traditionally published book.
Characterization for both the protagonists and the antagonists is good. They are fleshed out, with enough back story, inner dialogue and dialogue to get a sense of who they are and what their motivations are. Because of the overarching storyline, the central and some supporting characters appear in every book. Each book has the emphasis on a different hero and heroine, however, and ones in this book are very likeable. Con, the hero, is alpha but less domineering with his mate than his brothers are with theirs. He was depicted as a man who loved his mate enough to sacrifice his own desires by releasing her to fulfill her potential and destiny. As well, he was depicted as a man who studied her craft, not only for his own political agenda, but to become an understanding and supportive part of her life. He was confident enough in himself that he took pride in his mates' abilities, even when she bested him. Moira, the heroine, was very young and inexperienced when mated and is conflicted as a result. She is very strong, confident and decisive when it comes to her craft and her duties as a witch. However, when it comes to personal relationships, especially with her mate, she is extremely insecure, indecisive and she constantly second-guesses herself. The author portrayed them perfectly for the situation in which she placed them, and it made for a strong and satisfying romantic component of the the book.
The pace was fairly brisk and even. The author created enough suspense and tension, that the suspense component balanced the romance. The story line was strong and very engaging. I couldn't put the book down and stayed up until the wee hours to finish it.
My only complaint is the amount of sex. I think this book had less of a ratio of sex to story than the others, but it was still too much for my tastes. The book was definitely not erotica and the sex scenes were well done. Most readers of paranormal romances would likely be very happy with this aspect of the book. My personal preference is for less sex and more story in my romance books. No matter how well written sex scenes are, I find that if there are too many or they are too long, they slow down the story and, frankly, they get boring fast.
I recommend this book and the series. I've read the next two books since I finished this one, and the quality remains consistent and good. I've read several paranormal romance series, and well there are some I liked more than this one, it ranks highly on my scale.
Moria is a witch that our Alpha solider Conn mated 100 years ago by mistake. She was young and had much to learn and even thou Conn knew she was his forever he agreed to leave her with her family so she can learn to become the powerful witch she was meant to be. Now that time has past and our Alpha solider is ready to take back what he wishes he never let go of, Moria. This is an on again off again love story. It takes place in Ireland, Moria's home, and away from the rest of his family.
I didn't feel this story focused on Conn and Moria as much as it should have but I do love how this book answers some unanswered question from both Fated and Claimed, Talen and Dage's stories. I hope you enjoy the book as much as I did. RZ out did herself once again.
As the story goes, Moira Dunne is the seventh sister of the seventh sister, and a very powerful witch with the potential to be the most powerful ruler the Council of the Coven Nine has ever claimed. Then one moonlit night, during a passionate one-night stand, she's marked as a mate by Connlan Kayrs—a fierce vampire warrior and commander of all the Realm soldiers. Resulting in her family demanding he give her a century of freedom to study and learn her craft, and come into her power.
As the seventh daughter of a seventh daughter, Moira was pretty much guaranteed a place on the Council of the Coven Nine and Conn understood her need to prepare. Not only do the coven members rule their world, they do so using quantum physics, or elements that could blow up the universe, and harnessing those elements takes training. So, reluctantly, he signed a treaty promising to leave her be for a hundred years—to train as the Seventh. But that time is now up, and after a century of waiting he fully intends to claim his mate.
“One night a century ago does not dictate my future, Kayrs.”
“Wrong. Witchcraft is your calling, what you’re meant to do. As for who and what—you’re meant to be mine. Make peace with your destiny now.”
Much has changed since Conn last laid eyes on Moira. Besides being a very powerful witch who deals in quantum physics—if something has molecules or waves, she can alter the material state—she's a professor at both the University of Dublin and the Quantum Academy, a university known only to magic users. And unbeknownst to Conn, she's also become one of the most successful enforcers—a fierce witch and dangerous warrior—in the history of the Coven Nine whose main job is to protect the council members and does so by taking the power from witches who are abusing magic. But if the council decides to withdraw from the Realm Moira will be forced to choose between her duty to the Coven Nine and loyalty to her mate.
One thing that I particularly enjoyed about this story was that Conn wasn't a total caveman. Finally, a Kayrs brother who isn't a complete neanderthal! He treated Moira with respect and admiration for what she's accomplished and what she can do. And unlike some of the other Kayrs mates, Moira won't be told what to do. Granted, she's a very powerful witch. Still, she gives every bit as good as she gets, making their relationship explosive both in and out of the bedroom. And Conn has no intention of ever letting her go again.
