“If you want hot, sexy, dangerous romance…this series is for you.” –Paranormal Haven

“If you want hot, sexy, dangerous romance…this series is for you.” –Paranormal Haven

Caleb Donovan was never meant to be a prophet. At heart he’s a conqueror, his appetites far more carnal than spiritual. He’s not inclined to repress his passions and surrender to fate. After all, that’s what cost him Lily—three centuries ago. She married another, because it was ordained. Now that he’s in the same benighted calling—and forced into proximity with her—all the old desires are roaring back to life…

After widowhood and centuries of celibacy, Lily is eager to explore the wild side of life, except now she’s vulnerable to another forced relationship, with an enemy. But this time she’s determined to choose her own path. And if hot, furious Caleb comes charging to the rescue, it might just change both their destinies…

Love is about to start conquering…

    This novella in the Dark Protectors series is a riveting paranor

    This novella in the Dark Protectors series is a riveting paranormal read that keeps readers on the edge. Caleb Donovan is a soldier, he was never meant to be a prophet even if does put him in close contact with Lily. Lily is eager to explore her wild side, but is vulnerable to a forced mating with an enemy.  If Caleb charges to the rescue it just might change both their destinies.
    This fast paced plot keeps the reader hovering in anticipation with lots of suspense, action, drama and romance.  The author brings the world of the Dark Protectors to life with well written scenes and details that capture the imagination and tension builds throughout the story as the time for the proposed peace talks with their enemies grows closer.  The strong compelling characters are easily related to and grab the reader’s attention from the very beginning.
    The attraction between Lily and Caleb is hot enough to scorch the reader and the sex scenes are red hot and steamy, but the relationship set explosions off when the two get around each other, snarky dialogue accompanies quite a few arguments between the two not only because of their past, but because of differing opinion on what being a prophet means and whether fate really plays a part.  The reader can’t help but get caught up their story and certainly can empathize with the choice they have to make, kill a friend or destroy the world. The visions have tensions running high between the prophets and to spice things up even more, the enemy wants Lily for himself.
    I was totally engrossed in this quick thrilling read with its fascinating world and captivating characters and I can’t wait to read the next one.

    4.75*
    This was another amazing addition to the Dark Protectors series. I just can't get enough of these books and I'm very sad that the series will come to a close with the next book. 
    Caleb Donovan was never meant to be a prophet. He's a fighter not a peace maker. Lily Sotheby chose duty over her hearts desire 3 century's ago. Now that the virus has changed everything Lily wants a chance to experience life on the wilder side.
    Let me tell you Caleb is one hot vampire and when Lily lets her proper shield down...WOW. But with the upcoming Peace Talks between all the species of the Realm the Prophet's are having nightmares about doing Fates biding. Can they figure this out before something terrible happens?
    I received this from Netgalley and Kensington Books in exchange for the honest review.

    Rebecca Zanetti continues to thrill us with her brilliance!!


    As we race toward the possible culmination of this exhilarating series, it is only fitting that the 300-year-old history between our two favourite prophets is finally resolved. 

    All the stories in this remarkable series, even the novellas, are awe-inspiring and enthralling, and this short but captivating story loses nothing in its brevity.

    While Lily Sotheby has continually maintained an air of ladylike reserve and professionalism, I have always believed that more lies beneath her refined and cultured surface. 

    And who better to ruffle her resolve and unsettle her devotion to duty, than a sexy rebellious warrior in the form of Caleb Donovan. Focused on her safety, but overwhelmed by his insatiable attraction, Caleb is determined bring Lily’s forceful and passionate nature to the fore.

    When the chemistry finally ignites between this impassioned couple; not even the powers of fate, or an impending war can eclipse their desire.

    TAMED is definitely a one sitting read filled with all the deceit, intrigue and passion, we’ve come to expect from a Dark Protector novel, and I sincerely hope you enjoy Lily and Caleb’s story as much as I did.

    As expected, Rebecca Zanetti delivers a high-intensity romance, amid fast-paced and dangerous circumstances in TAMED; the latest addition to the Dark Protectors Series.

    Caleb Donovan, the Realm Rebel and our lady, Prophet Lily Sotheby's romance heats up the pages of this novella.

    Caleb proves to be a hard-ass, no nonsense alpha male, doing things as he's done for ages: his way. He's hell bent on protecting the Realm and his woman, despite his fleeting nature. Surprisingly though, he doesn't hesitate to expose the truth of his feelings to the one woman he's yearned for these many centuries, making him accessible and endearing.

    And our lady Lily has broken free of the stuffy confines of propriety and shown that she is a force to be reckoned with, Fate be damned. She will do what is necessary to ensure the safety of the ones she loves and I for one admire her new found boldness.

    Humor, action, scorching-hot attraction and passionate love drive this tale. RAZ has hit another home run for me. This tantalizing bit has only just whet my appetite, strengthening my craving and I eagerly anticipate the next installment.

    Over-rated & over-priced

    This book popped up in my selected for you. I knew it was towards the end of the series but figured if i liked it I could always start at the begining. The book is good, but nothing to write home about, and at $3.00 for 100 pages, and rest of them are $6 & $7 not sure it was that good. I think I will take a pass on this author.

    Tamed is a short story in the Dark Protectors Series by Rebecca

    Tamed is a short story in the Dark Protectors Series by Rebecca Zanetti.  The main characters are the prophet Lily and the Realm Rebel, Caleb Donovan.  The story falls after Shadowed (Book 6).   I recommend reading the other stories in the series before reading Tamed.  I believe the story would make more sense and would be much more enjoyable.   

    Centuries ago, the prophet Lily chose to marry for duty instead love.  Then, Fate stole her husband away only weeks after their mating and left Lily bound to her dead vampire mate for centuries without hope for love or even sexual release.   Lily has been haunted by memories of the man she turned her back on centuries ago.  Now, Lily is plagued with the Kurjans’ virus, released to destroy vampires’ mates by their enemies.  As the virus destroys Lily’s chromosomes, her mating with her dead husband is terminated.  Lily is free to explore sex without pain.  

    Caleb has returned to the Realm and is now a prophet.  To try to save the world, the Vampires, Witches, Kurjuans, and Demons are attempting peace talks.  Lily and Caleb must work closely together to ensure these talks are run smoothly and safely.  Tension is high but can Lily and Caleb remain focused on peace or will their burning desire finally engulf their souls?   

    I am captivated by Zanetti’s vampire world.  Her characters have depth.  The men in her stories are overprotective and alpha while the women are still stubborn and independent.  Zanetti’s exploration of the relationship dynamics between alpha men and independent women is spicy and fun.  She is always able to find a way for the men to maintain their dominance while allowing the women to achieve their own goals.  Her heroines are always resilient and never appear weak while falling in love with tough, alpha men.  I enjoyed reading Caleb and Lily’s story.  Who knew a rebel could be such a romantic?   I highly recommend this series to anyone who enjoys vampire novels, especially Lara Adrian’s Midnight Breed Series.  

    Thank you Kensington Publishing Corp. for the opportunity to read this novella early.  I truly love this series.  I received an advanced copy from Net Galley in return for my honest review.

    Great read

    Great read and an absolutley great series. If you're a fan of books like the blackdagger brotherhood or lords of the underworld, then the dark protectors is for you. Tamed was another great addition to the series and I can not wait for the next one, which is rumored to be Jannies story and that's just what I've been waiting for.

    I received a copy from the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for my honest review, so here it is. This is one of those stories that makes me think if some of it just might be true. Lily is a prophet and sees what Fate shows her. Caleb never wanted to be a prophet, he is a warrior. But that is what happens when you are close to a prophet when he or she dies. You take over in their place. Caleb has loved Lily for over 300 years. He has never had the feelings he has for Lily for any other woman. And now he will have her and protect her. But can they survive together? Caleb is a vampire, and Lily has a virus that has unmated her but the virus stops her from mating with any male. Lily, Caleb and a third prophet will have to save the Realm. It is what keeps humans safe from those wanting to destroy them. This is a great story to take you away for a time and just enjoy the ride. This is the second book for me by Rebecca Zanetti and I think I am addicted. Although I didn't start at the beginning of the series, I still loved it and will have to go back and read from the beginning. Give Rebecca a try and enjoy yourself.

    Where to begin….I LOVED IT!!!!! Rebecca Zanetti has a way of grabbing me with her words and pulling me into her world with the story, plot, and action that takes place in these imaginative worlds. That is what makes a great store for me and the fact that Tamed does this is no surpass based on every other novel she has written. Tamed follows Lily and Caleb as they re-connect after centuries apart. Both have changed but both are still 100% in love with the other. This is seriously one of my favorite book series to date and I revisit these books often! 




    I would definitely recommend this book for an paranormal romance lover out there! I also suggest that you read the other books in this series because the build up between these two starts in some of the prior books, and let's face it, all of her books are fantastic!

    A great novella to continue the Dark Protector's series.
    I have always liked Lily, she's the realm's shoulder to cry on, the counselor, the one soul even Jase can confide in. But she is also the type who has sacrificed everything for her duty as a prophet. After having given up a chance at love 300 years earlier, fate is offering her a second chance. With impending peace talks among the races Lily is faced with some impossible choices and a fair share of temptations. Caleb the "realm rebel" is a prophet not by choice, but by fate. Newly realigned with the realm as a solider now, he is able to fight, protect, and also pursue a love he thought he lost 300 years ago. He is such a great solider, a good person, and a hot alpha male with a strong personality. It was fast paced, action packed, had a hint of humor, and great romance. I really enjoyed the novella and I think it gives a great resolution to a 300 year old mistake. Duty over love... not this time! I can't wait for Janie's story, Marked!

    4.5 Stars





    Tamed is book 6.5 in the Dark Protector series and it centre's around the Prophets, Caleb and Lily.

    Caleb and Lily were friends a long time ago, more than friends to be truthful but then Lily was duty bound to marry another, shortly after she was widowed and has been alone ever since. Now with the virus running rampant, she has a chance that she never had before, a chance to move on and experience life.

    The peace talks are approaching and all the Prophets need to have their heads in the game but dreams, premonitions and visions from fate are interfering - how do they distinguish truth from fiction?

    I enjoyed this little novella, it sets everything up for Janie's book which I am eagerly anticipating. Caleb was a strong, alpha male with the protective streak that I love in a hero. Lily wasn't the usual strong, kick-ass heroine but that's ok. It felt like she was starting to figure out who she is meant to be and taking steps to be that person. Her inner strength is starting to show and she's going to need it if everyone is going to survive the next part of the tale.

    NUMBER OF HEARTS: 4 1/2
    REVIEW: 
    What would you do if the woman of your dreams married someone else? 
    And then what would you do if you had a chance to finally get what you want? 
    Would you take it? Would you let anything stand in your way? 
    Well not if you are Caleb Donovan. When a chance with Lily presents itself he will do anything to grab on to her and never let her go. Nothing will stand in his way not an upcoming peace talk between the war factions of the world. Not very disturbing dreams and sure as heck not a kidnapping attempt. 

    This was a great addition to the Dark Protectors series. But I will say that it really did leaving dying for the next book in this series. 
    If you are a Dark Protectors fan you will love Caleb & Lily’s story.
