He Might Save Her

Former police psychologist Ronni Alexander had it all before a poison attacked her heart and gave her a death sentence. Now, on her last leg, she has an opportunity to live if she mates a vampire. A real vampire. One night of sex and a good bite, and she’d live forever with no more weaknesses. Well, except for the vampire whose dominance is over the top, and who has no clue how to deal with a modern woman who can take care of herself.

She Might Kill Him

Jared Reese, who has no intention of ever mating for anything other than convenience, agrees to help out his new sister-in-law by saving her friend’s life with a quick tussle in bed. The plan seems so simple. They’d mate, and he move on with his life and take risks as a modern pirate should. Except after one night with Ronni, one moment of her sighing his name, and he wants more than a mating of convenience. Now all he has to do is convince Ronni she wants the same thing. Good thing he’s up for a good battle.

Only Rebecca Zanetti can get away with writing these types of over the top alpha cavemen and do it so well that you keep coming back for more. Even among the males in this series Jared is OTT, which is saying a lot. My eyebrows were close to my hairline the whole time I read this book. What?

 A feisty heroine, an overprotective hero, some action and a lot of steam – the perfect recipe for an engaging story. This is one novella I wish was a full-length book because there was so much to love about both Ronnie and Jared. Their relationship was passionate and intense and they kind of remind me of Talen and Cara.

Ronnie was a scene-stealer in every way and I loved her. She was spunky, stubborn and was always leading the charge, which actually made Jared the perfect man for her because he was  able to handle her so well. She was also good for Jared because she showed him how an independent woman took care of herself.

Between trying to figure out their relationship, finding who was behind Ronnie’s ill-health and dealing with a blast from Jared’s past, there was a lot going on, all at top speed, all of it very exciting.

I can never get enough of this series and every new installment gives me the urge to re-read the previous books. For anyone who hasn’t read any of the series, now would be a perfect time to remedy that.






His muscles tightened as he held himself in check.

She stretched her neck, her body moving against him. “I feel so good.” Holding out her hand, she twisted her arm left and right. “Strong. Well, stronger than I just was.” She rubbed her palm along his whiskers. “That’s not all.”

Yeah. He felt it, too. Attraction. So he turned her to straddle him, feeling her body warm several degrees. “Let me know if I go too fast.”

She leaned in and settled her lips on his. “The first time I saw you, I thought wow. A real wow.”

Her breath brushed his mouth, and he stiffened to remain in control. “Is that a fact?” he asked, waiting for her to make a move. The last thing he wanted to do was frighten her, and he couldn’t tell how much stronger his blood had made her. If at all.

“Yes.” She nibbled at his bottom lip.

Magma boiled through his blood. “When I first saw you, I thought your eyes were the prettiest color I’d ever seen,” he said against her mouth. “Like a fine whiskey that has just caught the light.”

She kissed him, and he could feel her smile. “That’s sweet,” she whispered.

Yeah. That was him. Sweet. Nobody in his entire life had called him that. “I don’t want to rush you,” he said.

She tunneled her hands through his hair and hummed. “But we’re on a bit of a deadline?”
