The Hunter

For almost a century, the Realm’s most deadly assassin, Chalton Reese, has left war and death in the past, turning instead to strategy, reason, and technology. His fingers, still stained with blood, now protect with a keyboard instead of a weapon. Until the vampire king sends him on one more mission; to hunt down a human female with the knowledge to destroy the Realm. A woman with eyes like emeralds, a brain to match his own, and a passion that might destroy them both—if the enemy on their heels doesn’t do so first.

The Hunted

Olivia Roberts has foregone relationships with wimpy metro-sexuals in favor of pursuing a good story, bound and determined to uncover the truth, any truth. When her instincts start humming about missing proprietary information, she has no idea her search for a story will lead her to a ripped, sexy, and dangerous male beyond any human man. Setting aside the unbelievable fact that he’s a vampire and she’s his prey, she discovers that trusting him is the only chance they have to survive the danger stalking them both.


My Review:

Teased is the newest installment in author Rebecca Zanetti’s Dark Protectors series as well as novella number 19 in the 1,001 Dark Nights 2015 line-up.  I am a huge fan of both Ms. Zantetti and 1,001 Dark Nights so to get my hands on this novella was über exciting and I loved every pulse pounding and intense second of it!

Never in her wildest dreams did Olivia Roberts think getting a good story would put her life in danger. Yet here she was, being shot at and running away from a kidnapping attempt.  As if that wasn’t enough, she’s caught in the clutches of a very dangerous and very sexy man who, even though he says he’s trying to keep her safe, she can’t help but shake the feeling there is something more going on with him.  She truly had no idea that reporting this story would not only lead her onto a path littered with supernatural beings but on a path to her fated mate…

Chalton Reese was used to all sorts of assignments but he certainly has never been on one so crucial to the Realm. Yet here he was, chasing after a woman who keeps running away from him and one who has no intention of revealing where she was getting her information.  This was certainly proving to be one of his most trying assignments yet.  Now he’s trying to keep this beautiful woman safe, get her to trust him with information, and trying to ignore the nagging feeling that she may he his fated mate.  If he only believed a man like him were worthy of one…

Fate has put these two together for a reason.  Now they both just need to put all their fears and disbeliefs aside and listen to what their hearts are telling them….well, if they survive.

From the very first page, Teased is non-stop action and I freaking loved it.  It’s been some time since I opened the first page of a book and was riveted to each page, beyond anxious to see what was going to happen next.  Teased did that and then some!

I was a worried mess for Olivia but knew Chalton would keep her safe.  I mean that man is like sexy mega protector extraordinaire and I just adore him and his alpha ways.  I’d certainly never turn him away from rescuing me! Olivia surely gave him a run for his money though.  She is a total spitfire and I loved her spunk and attitude when she challenged Chalton at every turn.  Her reactions were so relatable and it was refreshing to read.  No overly feminine pushover here! Together these two were delicious.  Their push and pull was off the charts hot and when they decide to throw some caution to the wind and spend a night together it was beyond smoking hot!

Adding to that there is a whole lot of drama with trying to find out who is after Olivia and also Chalton trying to find out who her source was.  Talk about non-stop! That drama brings in Chalton’s brothers and while they have been estranged for quite some time, they fall into a great banter that had me laughing out loud more than a few times.  I tend to find humor in most situations, especially when stress is high, so I loved that aspect!

Teased really is the whole package.  Heat, action, suspense, and even some humor….it all adds up to one amazing story!  I can’t wait to see what’s in store next for some of my favorite supernaturals.  Thank you, Ms. Zanetti, for an amazing read!
