Hell, his colleagues at Scanguard think he's mostly a monster. A guy who's into rough sex. A guy who does exactly what he wants and doesn't give a rats ass what anyone else thinks about him or what he does.
What they don't know is that Zane has reasons for the way he is. He was an inmate at Buchenwald Concentration camp. Its where he was turned. What he and his family endured there was what shaped the Zane of today. Revenge and hate.
Zane is assigned a body guarding detail. His charge is Portia. She's a twenty year old hybred.
Now a hybred is half vamp and half human. These folks can be out in the sunlight and eat food. They are also stronger than the average vamp. Sounds weird that anything could be stronger than a full vamp but apparantly thats the case.
Portia is a great girl. A great girl with one problem. That problem is that she has to lose her virginity before she hits twenty one when she changes to her true form. The form she will have for the rest of her life. If she doesn't then she will forever have pain when having sex. Her hyman will regrow every day. Not a fun thing to contemplate.
Portia has really had no interest in dating anyone. No interest until her friend Laura, another hybred like her, fills her in.
Her Father, a hybred, made sure Laura lost her virginity. He chose the male and made sure things were done correctly.
Portia's Father is another kettle of fish. He doesn't want his daughter dating and he sure as hell doesn't want her to lose her virginity before she changes on her twenty first birthday. A twenty first birthday thats only five weeks away. Hence the hiring of Scanguards.
Portias Father has given Scanguards complete lies about his daughter and why he wants her watched. He will be out of Town and is trusting them to believe his lies and keep his daughter in a bodyguard cage.
Laura and Portia, not knowing what Portia's Father has told Scanguards, decide they have to take matters into their own hands to make sure Portia loses her virginity.
So begins one great read.
Zane is his usual ascerbic self when he meets Portia. A Portia who is trying to lose her virginity with someone, anyone. Zane of course has no idea whats going on and is only going by what Portia's Father has told Scanguard. His daughter is flighty, likes to party and is acting out over the death of her mother six months ago.
As the story progresses Portia starts viewing Zane as the means to an end.
This one is full of betrayal, sex, good guys, a mad doctor, love and a scheme that defies the imagination. Scanguards, Zane and Portia are in for one rollercoaster of a ride.
Just one good read and deserving of those five stars.
In a nutshell, Zane is hired to protect Portia, a young hybrid. 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 has hired Scanguards to prevent. So Scanguards' boss, Samson, puts Zane up to the task as a low profile job. As Portia & Zane spend more time together, rules starts to bend and sparks turn into a hot attraction. For Zane, foreign feelings & emotions starts to resurface as he deals with his desire for Portia and the predicament that she is in. Portia has only one candidate in mind for taking her virginity and that man is Zane. She is stubborn & does not take no for an answer & so her seduction of Zane begins. But as they get closer together, Zane's past comes back to haunt him & threatens to pull them apart. With this, Zane has to decide whether his thirst for revenge is greater or his love for Portia.
Tina Folsom did a great job in weaving an emotional, intense, and sexy love story between Zane & Portia. In this story, the reader gets to learn about Zane's past and the events that shaped him into Z.A.N.E, an aloof, callous, violent, and emotionless vampire. Zane's story was heart-wrenching and the reader can't help, but feel compassion for him. Portia was also a well-developed heroine. She was likeable and believable and perfect for Zane in every way.
I've read all the books in the Scanguards Vampires series and while all of them were very good, Zane's Redemption has got to be the best so far! Tina Folsom has a magic touch that makes all her stories believable, sexy, emotional, intense and exciting and Zane's Redemption is no exception. I absolutely loved this book! It was fast-paced and a definite page-turner! Overall, I highly, highly recommend this book if you are up for a great read!
I have read Quinns story right after Zanes and it's just as good but everyone has a favorit :)
I hope there's a Thomas story soon!!! Maybe an Oliver or Cain story...Wesley?? So many choices!

This is Zane's story and its heartbreaking and hard to read at times, it's seems more than a vampire romance novel, Zane has seen so much and gone through so much, he lived through ww2.
Of course you could say this is all fiction, but unfortunately ww2 camps were real and horrifying and this book delves into that, with added vampirism!
Because of all this he keeps parts of himself hidden, and only shows his aggression and strength.
So zane has been a bad boy, and downgraded as a bodyguard, and has to guard a hybrid vampire (part human part vamp), enter Portia who's not too happy, she has a special goal and it needs to be completed before she's 21! Her father has other ideas and wants her guarded but why???
She convinces zane of her plight and eventually he agrees to help but at what cost.
I cant tell you much more of the plot as I really wouldn't want to spoil it,
as this book surprised me in a few places.
Needless to say this had sexual attraction, super hot detailed love making, danger, adventure, and sexy hot vampires everywhere.
I have to mention Oliver the day bodyguard scan-guards helper, I really like him - his character is really growing
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and would recommend it to vampire fans, of course it's better if you've read the series so you know the characters, I still have a big soft spot for Samson, but Zane, Zane, Zane......
Read the book & you will laugh, cry & understand who Zane is & why.
My only gripe is that there is always a term of endearment used by the males toward their mates. Not generally a problem...but I found Zane' s endearment of "baby girl" just not believable for this character & repeated so often it just got bloody annoying in the end. Not enough to make the story anything less than 5 stars...just a personal observation.
Such good stories I am now going to immediately purchase the next instalment. What a joy having a kindle is!!
I am someone who loves to learn about Nazi Germany and WW 2, also I have visited Auschwitz so the fact such a unique take was in this book made me extremely happy!!
Such passion and an unexpected twist! Felt like crying at some points, so bloody good!!!!!
I started off thinking that the main heroine - Portia - was a bit like a bubblegum barbie type but I was pleasantly surprised by her strength and conviction.
Together they make a wicked couple who create a very engaging story.
Another brilliant installment.
my only wish is that they were a little cheaper to buy as it adds up when there is so many books in a series.
once I like a book I'm hooked to the end!
but if your looking for a good hot and romantic read I recommend these books.
romantic,raunchy and full of action.well
worth a read
