Blurb: Daire Dunne is more than ready to take a quick break from his duties as a Coven Nine Enforcer. When he spots a sexy blonde across a Titan’s of Fire party, it’s not long before she’s on the back of his Harley on the fast track to his apartment. Unfortunately, one overheated kiss in, the woman drugs Daire and steals valuable files that can’t fall into enemy hands. The second he comes to, the hunt is on…
Now that Cee Cee has the information to take down an enemy that destroyed her family, she can implement her perfect plan for revenge. Nothing will stop her, not even a shockingly sexy enforcer barging into her life. Not even the spectacular, fire-branding sex engulfing them. But if Daire ever figures out who her family really is, all bets are off…
Review: Rebecca Zanetti is an amazing world builder and this great new book–the second in a new series that branches off of the Dark Protectors world–continues the trend. Here we’re concentrating on the Realm Enforcers and they are as alpha as you can get! If you love romantic suspense with a paranormal slant, this book will be right up your alley but I’d suggest you read at least the first one if not the previous series so you’re not too lost.
You might want to fill out a scorecard to keep track of all the factions and how well they’re playing with each other because MAN these characters love to fight! The politics change frequently and sometimes the group that’s your enemy in the morning suddenly becomes your ally by midnight. Daire Dunne, a Witch Enforcer for Coven Nine, gets seduced and abandoned by a gorgeous blonde human he met in a bar. Since he’s usually the one doing the dumping, he’s a little pi$$ed, especially when she blows up the place as she leaves him unconscious on the floor. When he finally catches up to her days after their aborted one night stand, he’s stunned when he discovers her true identity. WTF?! He thought for sure she was a human, and her true identity is going to get him in a lot of trouble with her family–and they’re not exactly on the same team. How’s it going to play with his family and Coven Nine?
CeeCee’s got a lot on her plate. She’d married young, had kids early, and was widowed years ago. Now, she’s been freed from her mating bond and has a long life ahead of her–she’s ready to get crazy and live a little! She’s not ready to sit around knitting and be a grandma. She’s finally escaped her overbearing, protective sons only to land under the thumb of uber protective Daire. Who takes on her quest as his personal mission. He’s half in love with her and has decided that he needs to protect her–which really steams her up. She doesn’t need a keeper!
This book combines a lot of species infighting and has multiple plots running simultaneously–really a lot of fun to read and keep up with. The writing is intense and compelling, with hot sex and funny inside jokes keeping the momentum going. You’ll laugh and you’ll get frustrated right along with the hero and heroine. I find myself taking sides and then switching and then switching back again–it’s a hoot! The scenarios may be a little over the top since it’s paranormal, but you’ll recognize the exchanges between the couples from your own life–completely relatable. This book is a great escape from your normal life, combining exciting action with smoking sexual chemistry that packs a power all its own! Read it for the action, enjoy it for the emotions. Thanks!
