Duty meets desire . . .
Mercy O’Malley hates killing people. So when she’s assigned to take out Vampire-Demon Logan Kyllwood, she lures him to a seedy bar in Scotland, then decides to kidnap him instead. How can she cold-bloodedly end all that heat, those green eyes, that ripped body?
Unfortunately for Mercy, attempted murder and kidnapping are just foreplay for the Kyllwood brothers. Logan may be the youngest of the bunch, but death and violence are already a way of life.  Now he’s ready to complete a painful, terrifying ritual to become one of the Seven, dedicated to protecting this world from the most dangerous evil it’s ever known. But first he has to deal with a blackmailing Fey, a ransom demand and his own pounding need for the last female he ever should have fallen for . . .
“Sizzling sex scenes and a memorable cast.”

Logan is one of my favorites. Lots of suspense and things getting blown up. Mercy keeps surprising Logan until he figures out that he has to stop underestimating her. Then they work together to stop the bad guys. Looking forward to the next one.

Yes!! It's finally time for Logan's HEA. Or is it? He's about to join the Seven by becoming a shield so finding a mate is not on his radar. Fate, however, has a different plan in mind for him. Mercy is a fairy, or Fae, as they prefer to be called. She, and her people, are in town to stop Logan and the Seven from fully forming. The Fae have determined that the Seven's rituals Ares causing dimensional disruptions...and could result in world destruction. Mercy is attracted to Logan but she is fully committed to her cause, plus she's already promised to another. But as me know, that pesky Fate is at work and nothing is gonna stand in her way. I loved this book. Logan and Mercy and so great together. They are both dedicated to their own cause and families.....which makes them constantly butt heads.....while also fighting their desire for each other. And the secondary characters really added to the story. Now I'm ready for Garret's book. I received a copy of this book from the publisher, St. Martin's Press/Lyrical Press, via NetGalley. My thoughts and opinions are my own and without bias.

5 STARS Review by Leah Late Night Reviewer Up All Night w/ Books Blog Just reading the synopsis had me excited to read this book. I have seen some of Rebecca Zanetti’s books but I have never picked up one of her books, until now. I am so glad I did. I inhaled Demon’s Mercy, Dark Protectors #9, by Rebecca Zanetti. The whole freaking thing! Logan is the perfect hybrid of duty vs desire. Yes, he is a hybrid, part demon par vampire, but his character in this book is delicious and deadly. You can just hear his growl of frustrations dealing with Mercy. Damn that growl! Gives ya shivers. When he goes from controlled alpha to ripping a Cyst's head off in a snap, you just want to dive into the layers of his character. Mercy, a Fae, was raised for one reason and one reason only, and that is all she knows but Logan has her questioning everything. She does not want war and will do anything to prevent that, even going against the Fae President. She is in a constant battle of doing right for her kind and her heart. The push and pull between Logan and Mercy is freaking H O T. They have a cat and mouse chase that you might find in a burlesque show. You think this is finally going to happen and then nope…. Ha! But Lord, when it does, YOWZA! I am super excited about finding this series. Now, to start with book one of this series and read through them all. I'm ready for my next shot of the Dark Protectors series. I love finding new authors.

Demon's Mercy is another irresistible paranormal romance in the totally addicting Dark Protectors series. The story contains a lot of backstory from previous novels and thus would be best read as part of the whole series. That being said, with a series this good why would you read just one? A combination of insolent heroine and big, hulking overprotective hero gets this story off on the right foot. Mercy is a fairy (fae if you ask her) that thinks she can save the world by preventing demon/vampire hybrid Logan from becoming one of the seven protectors. A lot of back and forth one-upmanship leaves Mercy in the very capable hands of Logan, who just happens to be her potential mate. Danger and secrets spice up this story as Mercy gives Logan a run for his money in a heated, suspenseful chase that ends with a semi- HEA (as part of the continuing series). With enough humor to lighten the story and enough action to keep the pages flying by, this book was a joyride full of smiles and excitement with characters brought to life in living color for my own pure reading pleasure. My voluntary, unbiased review is based upon a review copy from Netgalley.

Mercy O’Malley hates killing people. So when she’s assigned to take out Vampire-Demon Logan Kyllwood, she lures him to a seedy bar in Scotland, then decides to kidnap him instead. How can she cold-bloodedly end all that heat, those green eyes, that ripped body? This was a great story from start to finish. It has been 6 months and lots of books since I read the last book in this series, but it didn’t really deter me in the slightest. I absolutely LOVED Logan. I really liked Mercy. However, her unflinching faith in the superiority of her species irritated me a little. It was hard for me to put this book down when responsibility dictated. I highly recommend. **I voluntarily read and reviewed this book

Not my favorite in the series. Too much back in forth at the beginning without it going anywhere. It wasn't tension building, just annoying. It did start moving about halfway through the book so don't give up.

4.5stars The name is so suitable for this book/story because demon Logan meets his mate Mercy. In this story, we found out that the fairies are real and not crazy but a nation with advanced weapons, knowledge and one goal to stop the Seven to form to full form. Logan has full hands with Mercy they argue trough whole book, they fight and they haw power struggles. Both characters great and well developed, they are both strong, stubborn and loyal to their cause. I loved that because of her king action she sees the real truth and what is the best thing to do and how to act The book is full of action, I had the feeling that Logan was fighting the whole time without a break. Action, suspense, hot men, funny fairie action, past, and the present, hot mating and lovely ending for Logan and Mercy. I volunteered to review an ARC of this book for Netgelly

Oh my goodness.... what an amazing book!! I absolutely love the Dark Protectors series and this book definitely did NOT disappoint!! This book is about Logan's story and may I just say WOW, WOW, WOW!! He is such a 'playboy' and always in 'trouble' so reading about him being all grown up and meeting his mate was swoon worthy. Rebecca Zanetti is such an engaging writer and never fails to find ways to hook her readers. During this story we are introduced to fairies... just kidding, they actually prefer to be called Fae, and Zanetti does an amazing job weaving the Fae into this magical world of vampires, demons, witches, and shapeshifters. After being introduced to the Seven in Vampire's Faith we know that they need to find three special keys to prevent a world disaster and one key has already been found. This book begins with Logan following Mercy O'Malley because she is a key. Mercy ends up being more than a key. She is a spunky, compassionate, spitfire of a Fae; whom also ends up being Logan's mate!! The events that take place throughout the story are engaging and exciting. It was tough having to stop reading to even go to work!! If you're looking for a story that is interesting, romantic, and fun this is the book to read. Enjoy!!

I love the fact that Rebecca Zanetti has introduced a new species in this series. All the abilities the Fae have, open so many new ideas for her writing and I can’t wait to see what’s next. Logan Kyllwood has known nothing but war and protecting the ones he love since he was a young boy. Being a hybrid demon/vampire leaves his family as outcasts even if they are demon royalty. Now destine as one of the Seven he barely has the time to look for one of the Keys and definitely not for romance. Mercy O’Malley is one of the few Fae left, they have a breeding plan in place to grow their numbers but first they need to stop the Seven from reforming or there will be no life left to live. Her plan is to stop Logan from becoming one of the Seven and school him on what will happen if he does not. It’s is not her plan to fall for the bossy arrogant and oh so sexy hybrid. Mercy is a very strong women and sure of her abilities and her peoples knowledge of the universe. The more time she spends with Logan the more she is torn between duty and destiny. If Logan can only get Mercy to stay where he puts her he may be able to protect her and solve the Seven’s issues. Realization of ones worth and who to trust will solve duty versus destiny but which one will they choose?

I absolutely adore this series and this book features Logan so I'm in heaven. Yep that adorable, meddlesome, hunk of trouble is all grown up and about to meet his Mate ! So how does the author make this story different ? Well allow me to introduce the Fae for the first time in this amazing series. Yes not only do we have demons, vampire ,shifters and witches but now we learn about the ahem fairies ! Mercy is no ordinary Fae, no she's one of three special keys who are essential if the secretive Seven are to prevent world carnage. Trouble is both Logan and Mercy have very different ideas so settle in and watch the fireworks fly as this couple tempt, tease and thoroughly drive each other insane ! This voluntary take is of a copy I requested from Netgalley and my thoughts and comments are honest and I believe fair

A long forgotten race enters into the mix with a promise of war with the Realm. New, dire knowledge on dimension/dreamworld travel comes to light, along with insights on how the Seven might actually defeat Ulric, with the prophesied combined blood of the Keys. Long-held alliances are tested. Brotherhood deepens. I flove this Dark Protectors' world! Sparks fly high between characters, old and new, along with a lot of plot arcs spinning in the air in this offering, just what I needed for my reading ♡ doldrums. Truly a pivotal story in the overall series. Not to be overshadowed is Logan and Mercy, their push and pull journey sizzles. Extra spicy. I really liked these two creatures together. Polar opposites in loyalties and ideologies, yet compellingly drawn to each other. Is it only Fate? Me thinks they protest too much LOL With more intrigue and tight intensity, more who's the "real" good guys, like in the author's Scorpius Syndrome series. And with those battle scenes that just keep getting better, this one was just "more." Solid 4.5*

My Thoughts - 5 out of 5 Unicorns - I loved it!!! ***I choose what I read and review based on what intrigues me!! Yes, I got a review copy of this book, but no one tells me what to think, feel, or write about any book! I have started collecting this series and have 4 of the 9 so far, but haven’t gotten this book yet. The cover is lickable….errr I mean likeable!! This is the 9th book in this series, but it is only the 2nd one I’ve read. This series is already in my heart because I want to own and read them all as well as the Realm Enforcers series. Obviously, you can read them out of order though I bet you love them all even more if you read them all in order. This series is for adults only due to the violent fights where heads are removed and the steamy content with mates! This is Logan’s story of both his mating and his joining the Seven!! So much going on in this book, first the Fae have entered the scene, and they think the apocalypse is coming because of the Seven. It starts with Mercy kidnapping Logan, and then the tables turn. You learn all sorts of things about the Fae, and they know things. There is more trouble from the Cysts and Kurjans. All sorts of new information is out for everyone about secrets! I really love these bad boy hybrids because they battle fiercely and love just as fiercely. I can’t wait to see what happens next!! I highly recommend to any paranormal fans because there is action galore, vampires, demons, Fae, magic, mates and more!!

The newest Dark Protector romance is extraordinarily entertaining and explosive. Mercy and Logan’s chemistry is off the charts magnetic and these two bold, vivid characters keep readers on the edge of expectation and chuckles throughout the story. There is nothing sweet about this romance as they engage is snarky comments, hot, passionate battles and steamy passion all the way through their blossoming relationship. Mercy is the last female that Logan should be falling for and the timing is could certainly have been better as he is preparing to take part in the dangerous and terrifying Seven ritual. Readers can’t help but have fun even as they await for the next interruption of this couple’s activities. From kidnapping to realm hopping, this story is a non-stop adventure that keeps readers on the edge of their seat with adrenaline pumping action, thrilling suspense, and surprising twists. There is no way this book can be put down once readers get started because it starts off with a bang and just keeps exploding with energy and wonderfully zestful characters that demand attention. The fast pace plot flows smoothly and the author brings to the story to life with vivid imagery that makes it easy for the readers to connect to the characters and become part of the story and all the enjoyment of this explosive and passionate installment of the Dark Protectors.
