From New York Times bestselling author, Rebecca Zanetti, comes a new Dark Protectors—Reese Family Novella.

Now that her mask has finally slipped…

Ginny O’Toole has spent a lifetime repaying her family’s debt, and she’s finally at the end of her servitude with one last job. Of course, it couldn’t be easy. After stealing the computer files that will free her once and for all, she finds herself on the run from a pissed off vampire who has never fallen for her helpless act. A deadly predator too sexy for his own good. If he doesn’t knock it off, he’s going to see just how powerful she can really be.

He won’t be satisfied until she’s completely bare.

Theo Reese had been more than irritated at the beautiful yet helpless witch he’d known a century ago, thinking she was just useless fluff who enjoyed messing with men’s heads. The second he discovers she’s a ruthless thief determined to bring down his family, his blood burns and his interest peaks, sending his true nature into hunting mode. When he finds her, and he will, she’ll understand the real meaning of helpless.



Ah, this series. It’s like a shiny new toy and comfort food all wrapped up in one. I can’t get enough of it and it warms my heart to hear that there will be more to come!

What do a famous thief and an upright warrior of the Realm have in common? Nothing except passion and a love for family, which is what TANGLED has in abundance. This is a fast and exciting read with everything you want in a book: passion, action, drama and family. 

For Theo Reese and Ginny O’Toole, their moment has finally arrived. After dancing around each other for decades, Ginny has done the one thing that could destroy the Reese family and impact the Realm, and Theo needs to make things right.

Ginny needs to stay ahead of Theo until she completes her life-or-death mission but unfortunately for her, Theo is relentless and focused, plus he’s a distraction and the only man who has never fallen for her wiles.

However, things are not what they seem and both Ginny and Theo have to work together to find a resolution to their problems that will satisfy them both. It’s time for Theo to finally admit that his decades-old anger at Ginny was about his feelings for her, not her hurting his brother and Ginny has to face up to the fact that she’s been running from her feelings for Theo for just as long. 

The book isn’t a lengthy one but it sure packs in a lot in these few pages and is one you’ll want to finish in one go. Ms. Zanetti has a winning formula with this series and everything she writes is a must-read. It’s always fun to catch up with old favorite characters and meet new ones and I can’t wait for the next installment.



Theo had waited too many damn long years to wait any longer. He kissed Ginny, and the taste of woman exploded on his tongue. Honey and spice and all intrigue. She tunneled her hands through his hair, kissing him back, her body softening for him. Her thighs rose on either side of his hips, and his jeans suddenly felt way too tight.

He leaned to the side, and she helped him tug his shirt over his head. Then he kicked his jeans to the ground. Wait. He had to make sure. “Ginny.”

She grabbed his head and pulled him back down, her mouth seeking his.

“Wait,” he said, grasping her hands and pressing them on either side of her head. “I have to know. You need to say it.”

She blinked, her blue eyes dark pools of need. “Yes, Theo. To the mating. Not just to live, either. I want you.”

He’d wanted her for centuries, and he’d never thought he’d hear those words from her. Not really. There were so many words and promises he wanted to give to her, but she widened her legs, and he could feel her heat. “You like being spanked.”

Fire flashed in those eyes. “I most certainly do not.”

That brogue in such a classy voice nearly made him come right then and there. He kissed her hard, forcing his body to relax as he brushed the bra off her arms. “You’re lying to yourself if you believe that. Regardless, you should probably behave from now on,” he said, his mouth against the pounding pulse in her neck.

“Not a chance,” she breathed, arching into his body. Then she paused. “Wait a minute.”

Hell, no. But he levered up, letting his bare chest rub against her hardened nipples. God, she was f*cking amazing. “What?”

She writhed against him, somehow frowning. “I may be a fugitive. I don’t want you in trouble with the Realm just because of me.”

The woman was worried about him? His heart did a long roll, and his cock pulsed against her core. She was so warm and wet. “I won’t let you go to jail, sweetheart.”

Her light eyebrows arched. “Oh, I can get out of any jail. I was just worried you’d go to war or something.”

Get out of jail? She looked intrigued…not frightened. His gaze narrowed. “You are not going to jail or breaking out of jail.” It’d take a millennium to figure her out. Three of them to tame her. Good damn thing he was immortal. “Get that out of your head right now.”

Her pout was cute and sexy at the same time. God, he wanted to bind her to him forever. He’d figure out why and what to do with her later. Right now, his fangs ached with the need to take a bite. He let them slide down.

Her eyes widened, and she stilled beneath him. “I’ve never been bitten before. By anybody.” She swallowed.

“Get used to it.”
