Paranormal fans should run to pick up Rebecca Zanetti' s latest release in the Dark Protectors series. CLAIMED is a paranormal thriller that is truly exciting and captivating.

Emma Paulsen is a scientist with psychic abilities that has been taken captive by Kurjans, an evil vampire race. Her only hope is the one man that has haunted her dreams for years. This one man she wants desperately, yet knows she can never have. Yet Dage Kayrs, King of the Realm, will do anything to save his queen. Once Dage rescues her, he does everything in his power to make her his mate as she is destined to be.

While a part of her may want to be with Dage, Emma does everything to resist his plan. Her visions have shown her the consequences of becoming his mate and she wants to do everything she can to change the future. She doesn't realize what she's up against as the attraction between them grows stronger each day. In the meantime, she agrees to help Dage figure out the cause and cure behind a deadly virus that is attacking the vampire's mates. As more women are affected, Emma is determined to find a cure before it's too late.

Everything about this book is fabulous. Throwing you into the action starting with the first page, CLAIMED takes you on a thrilling and sexy adventure. The kind of adventure that leave you unwilling to put down the book for too long. With CLAIMED, you will find another great vampire series that enthralls you with breath-taking drama and alluring characters. In the midst of all the drama is a scorching romance that set the pages on fire. CLAIMED is all you could want and then some.

This book would not be a success without a wonderful cast of characters. Emma is a spunky, yet adorable leading lady. Everything about her was admirable. I appreciated the fact that Emma had an intelligent head on her shoulders and her decisions were motivated by more than just instinct. The scientist in her was always determined to find the answer, and this gave her character great depth and respectability. Her mate, Dage was an absolutely fantastic hero. There are just so many great things about his character. He was understanding and always willing to accept Emma's stubborn ways. Yet in the same breath, he was the seductive hunter trying to convince Emma they belonged together forever. He was a great alpha hero...without being too barbaric.

Ms Zanetti pens a very engaging story, but it's the romance that will capture your attention. It was thoroughly entertaining reading Dage and Emma's game of cat and mouse while their attraction became undeniable. This author creates two characters that have plenty of characteristics that make them great individually but together make a stunning couple. You will have no problem rooting for them and their happily ever after.

CLAIMED is book two in the Dark Protectors series. You can tell it is somewhat of a continuation from the first novel as far as the action is concerned, but you won't have any trouble catching up with all the details of the series. CLAIMED is the first novel I've read from the series and I absolutely loved it. So much so I can't wait to read the rest. Ms Zanetti sets up quite a few relationships for future novels and each new possibility only makes the series more intriguing. It definitely gives readers something to look forward to.

I cannot say enough great things about Rebecca Zanetti's CLAIMED. When you have a passionate romance, exciting drama and intriguing characters, what more can you really ask for? Prepare yourself to become completely absorbed in Ms Zanetti's Dark Protector series as it takes you for an exciting and enjoyable ride.
