Ready Or Not
Moira Dunne is a witch—the quantum physics kind. Time and space are her playthings. Which might explain why her one-night stand from a hundred years ago has turned up to "claim" her—and request her family's assistance with the war he's brewing. But the more she learns about Connlan Kayrs, the more she comes to think this is normal behavior for him…
There's Nowhere To Hide
When Conn and Moira tumbled on the moonlit grass, Conn hadn't meant to mark her as his mate for all time. She was only twenty! But it wasn't easy to wait for her. It was even harder to forget her. So when he finally returns for his wicked-hot witch, he's ready to let the sparks flying. Even if he burns up in flames…

Think you've read all the best vampire novels? Well unless you've devoured Rebecca Zanetti's Dark Predator series, you haven't! Ms Zanetti's latest, HUNTED, is a great novel to sink your teeth into!
One hundred years ago, Connlan Kayrs had a wild one night stand with a tempting red-headed witch that turned into something a little more permanent. Conn hadn't mean to, yet he still ended up marking Moira Dunne, which meant she was to be his mate forever. Realizing twenty-year-old Moira was too young for this serious attachment, Conn agreed with her family's wishes and stayed away from her for a century.
Well, time is now up and Conn is more anxious than ever to claim his prize. With all the different members of the supernatural Realm ready to go to war, Conn and Moira's new start may have them fighting on different sides. Which really wouldn't be much different from their current situation because Moira is rejecting Conn's advances with everything she has. Moira may not be able to resist him physically, but she isn't going to fall for his charms a second time. Well, she's pretty sure she won't. As enemies collide, Conn and Moira must fight for their people and fight for each other if they ever want their love to survive.
This is one paranormal series that has truly surprised me from the very beginning and I love it a little bit more after each installment. I was highly anticipating this next novel featuring Moira and Conn, and it certainly did not disappoint. These two have enough passion and chemistry between them to start the brightest fire. Ms Zanetti has developed two characters who have a love/hate relationship fueled by a vigorous sexual appetite for one another. Moira and Conn could turn the most serious argument into foreplay and it was certainly entertaining.
Still, it's not all angry sex. There is a subtle yet powerful emotional pull in their relationship. The lengths they would go to protect each other because of their love was absolutely heartbreaking at times. The sacrifices and choices they were willing to make made you cheer for their romance and love and their happily ever after. To put it simply, this is such a satisfying romance because they go through it all and come out a stronger couple because of it.
Of course they would make an excellent couple, because they are spectacular characters individually. Conn is blunt in what he wants and expects everyone to agree with him! Yet he is compassionate in the way he is willing to do whatever he has to in order to protect his loved ones. He is perhaps my favorite Kayrs brother. Don't get me wrong, I do love them all, but he is just the perfect alpha male vampire. Sexy, strong and overbearing in a way that makes it so appealing instead of frustrating! He knows just what to say and how to say it and if you don't agree, he has enough sex appeal to make you agree.
Yet if anyone can bring Conn to his knees, it's Moira. She has a fiery personality to match her striking red hair. You don't really get to see much of Moira's personality when she first met Conn one hundred years ago, but Ms Zanetti gives you enough context to allow you to see how much she's changed. Really, that's what you come to love best about her. Her separation from Conn may have been painful, but she has become her own person because of it. A very strong, intelligent woman who can take care of herself and isn't constantly depending on her mate. Moira continuously kept Conn on his toes whether it was with a witty remark or a sultry smile and it was pure entertainment.
HUNTED by Rebecca Zanetti is a thrilling and sexy romance that you will thoroughly enjoy reading. The world this author has created is lively, fun and full of zany characters you will absolutely adore. Should you read the first two before you check out HUNTED? Probably. The world building and previous characters are beginning to really jump from book to book, but I wouldn't say it's required. Truthfully, you should read the first two not to catch up, but because they are just as amazing as this latest installment.
Ms Zanetti's Dark Predator series is simply fabulous and shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon! HUNTED has set up a few more budding romances that I am anxiously eager to read about and I'm sure they will be just as great as the last. So what are you waiting for? Hunt down a copy of this book immediately!
