Vampire by Rebecca Zanetti

Vampire. Buy Now.

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Rebecca Zanetti comes a new story in her Dark Protectors/Rebels series…

Dr. Mariana Lopez has finally stopped bailing friends out of difficult situations. Well, except for substituting as the leader for another anger management group, pitching in as a campaign strategist for a prospective sheriff, and babysitting three dogs. Even with such a full life, she can feel the danger around her—a sense that something isn’t right. Nightmares harass her, until the real thing comes to life, and only the dark and sexy male sitting in her group can save her. However, with safety comes a price she might not be willing to pay.

Raine Maxwell is one of the Maxwells out of Montana, which means he's not only one of the most deadly vampires alive, but his path is set and his mate has been chosen for him. To save him—to continue his line. Unfortunately, his mate is an enhanced human female who has no idea of her abilities, of his species, or of her future. He’d like to lead her gently into this new world, but his people aren’t the only ones who’ve found her, which puts her into more danger than she can imagine. Plus, in order to follow his laws, he only has one week to convince her that immortality with him is what she wants—and needs.

**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you'll enjoy each one as much as we do.**

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

This is book 12.5 of the series, but the 1001 Dark Nights books are designed to introduce new readers to a series as well as giving faithful fans a little treat. Either way, this is a lovely novella which gives a good run through the basic details of the paranormal world, and delivers a very satisfying ending.

Raine Maxwell needs to seal the deal with his mate, Mariana, to survive, but he is reluctant to bring her into the world of which she knows nothing. He cannot help being close to her though and indulging a little in the desire that he feels for her.

Mariana has a problem when her stalker seems to re-emerge, even after her relocation, and the chaos that this turn of events heralds is even more confusing than she ever imagined. I loved that she was prepared to be open-minded, that she definitely planned on being everything to Raine, not just a mate in name – and it was fun that she got to see a whole new side to her close friends.

I would definitely recommend this read as it is fun, sexy, and dips into that other world that it is so much fun to (imagine/know?) exists!

Dr. Mariana Lopez has a stalker that she just can’t shake. When she moves, but still finds herself kidnapped and mysterious flowers arrive, she knows she’s been found again.

Raine Maxwell is cursed. He knows it, his family knows it, and his friends know it. The one person who might save him is someone he loves, but he can’t bring himself to mark her.

With Raine trying to figure out who’s after Mariana, Mariana trying to figure out if Raine can be trusted, and an entire network of people who are either rooting for them or rooting against them, it will take a leap of faith on both Raine and Mariana’s part to find happiness.

This was a quick novella that was entertaining to read. However, I would recommend reading the previous books in the series, as it sometimes felt that it would have been more enjoyable had you known more from the series.



He found me.
