Cara Paulsen is fierce about protecting what’s important: her daughter, her sister, and her plants. As a leader in her scientific field and a single mom, she is used to being in control over everything. Janie, her daughter, is very special. She appears to have the psychic power of premonition. Cara will put her life on the line if it means saving Janie from one ounce of hurt. And that’s exactly what it may come to when a rogue race of evil vampires decide that Janie and Cara should be theirs.
Talen Kayrs is a vampire and he has had three hundred years to hone his warrior skills; too bad he hasn’t been honing his seduction skills as well. Talen arrives in the dead of night to protect Cara and Janie from the evil headed their way. Cara doesn’t take the news that the only way for Talen to protect her is for them to get married. As if Cara hasn’t had enough thrown at her in one night Talen has one more bomb to drop…Cara is his mate. Talen and Cara are Fated to be together; now all he has to do is keep her alive and convince her to stay with him forever.
Fated is a sinfully seductive paranormal that grabs you from page one and doesn’t let go! Rebecca Zanetti has started her Dark Protector series off with a bang! Ms. Zanetti has created a fascinating world with many different paranormal races some good and some bad. I found the world building in Fated engrossing. There are so many characters that I can’t wait to learn more about! There are so many different facets to Fated that I loved I’m not sure where to begin.
Talen and Cara have explosive chemistry. There is no doubt that these two are going to get it on it’s just a matter of time. I really enjoyed Cara’s struggle with her feelings for Talen. Talen knows she is his mate so that’s it for him decision made but it’s not so easy for Cara even though she can’t seem to resist him. There were a couple of times I wanted to yell at Cara for her stupid decisions but those decisions did lead to some passionate revelations so all is forgiven.
Ms. Zanetti’s secondary characters rock! Janie may be four years old but she’s a star! I found her, her powers and her dreams very intriguing! So much so I am still thinking about them! I’m can’t wait for this little one to come into her own! Katie, the rare lioness also captured my attention with her fierce attitude and attraction to the Alpha Lion Jordan. These two are bound to heat up the pages at some point! Ah the Kayrs brothers, there’s plenty of them and I can’t wait to get to know them more!
Fated is an adrenaline filled adventure harboring a fiery romance you won’t soon forget! Fated has worked its way into my heart and has me anxiously waiting for the next in this fantastic series!
