Vampire’s Faith by Rebecca Zanetti

The Dark Protectors are Back!

Vampire King Ronan Kayrs wasn’t supposed to survive the savage sacrifice he willingly endured to rid the world of the ultimate evil. He wasn’t supposed to emerge in this time and place, and he sure as hell wasn’t supposed to finally touch the woman who’s haunted his dreams for centuries. Yet here he is, in an era where vampires are hidden, the enemy has grown stronger, and his mate has no idea of the power she holds.

Dr. Faith Cooper is flummoxed by irrefutable proof that not only do vampires exist . . . they’re hot blooded, able to walk in sunlight, and shockingly sexy. Faith has always depended on science, but the restlessness she feels around this predatory male defies reason. Especially when it grows into a hunger only he can satisfy—that is if they can survive the evil hunting them both.

The chance to dive back into the Dark Protectors universe, and a new slant on a beloved series by Rebecca Zanetti should not be wasted by any Paranormal Romance reader.  If you loved the powerful, sexy and completely addicting first set of stories then you’re going to love falling back into this world filled with new characters, enemies, danger, friendship, the chance to catch up with old friends and a love to risk it all for.

Yeah, I fell in love almost from the start with Ronan… Faith, not so much though, at least at first.  There is intelligence, genius even… and then there is common sense, street smarts and the stubborn determination to put mortal ideologies onto an immortal.  Granted, Faith had a lot to deal with, to understand about this unknown world.  Yet, Ronan proves over and over, often at his or his friends’ peril, that he knows what he’s doing, can certainly protect her and guide her in this world and would basically do anything for her.  His power is unbelievable, yet Faith continues to try to make Ronan adhere to mortal values and logic.  She has a lot to learn, a lot to experience before she’s truly Ronan’s mate.  By the ending of the book I felt she had finally gotten there… but it was, at times, a rough journey with Faith for me.

I don’t intend to go into the plot, for that you really need to read Vampire’s Faith firsthand for yourself.  It is a intriguing, dangerous, sexy and excellent journey back into the Dark Protectors world  We meet new friends and allies, encounter enemies, face down terror and danger, and reunite with some old well loved friends along the way.

I had a blast stepping back into this intricate world once again, and if you love Paranormal Romance, Suspense or Romance then you’ll fall in love with this story and want to continue the series.  I highly recommend Vampire’s Faith and look forward to Demon’s Mercy.  If you haven’t read the Dark Protectors earlier books… you could start here and know what is needed from earlier through the plot and dialogue… but I’d really suggest starting from the beginning if or when you can because it’s an amazing series that you’d enjoy.  I know it’s not always possible with a long series to go back financially or time wise, but if you can it’s well worth the effort.
