An alpha male vampire is about to get a second chance at love in this paranormal romance novella from a New York Times–bestselling author.
Caleb Donovan was never meant to be a prophet. At heart he's a conqueror with appetites far more carnal than spiritual. He's not inclined to repress his passions and surrender to fate. After all, that's what cost him Lily—three centuries ago. She married another, because it was ordained. Now that he's in the same benighted calling—and forced into proximity with her—all the old desires are roaring back to life…
After widowhood and centuries of celibacy, Lily is eager to explore the wild side of life, except now she's vulnerable to another forced relationship, with an enemy. This time she's determined to choose her own path. And if hot, furious Caleb comes charging to the rescue, it might just change both their destinies…

“Sizzling sex scenes and a memorable cast.”—Publishers Weekly on Claimed
Neither her empathic abilities nor her role as the single mother of psychic four-year-old Janie prepares plant physiologist Cara Paulsen for the intruder who claims to be kidnapping Cara and Janie for their own good. Janie assures Cara that Talen Kayrs really is trying to protect them from great danger, but Cara's skeptical, especially after learning that Talen is a vampire certain she's fated to be his mate. He insists they marry at once so Cara and Janie can be under the protection of his family. The mysterious enemy Kurjans covet women with special abilities and particularly want to get their hands on Janie. Cara wants to keep her daughter safe, but can she trust this domineering, sexy vampire? Debut author Zanetti bolsters this rather absurd setup with steamy scenes and some genuinely warm moments.
Passionate and timely
Caleb and Lily finally get their story in Tamed. They are a fabulous couple and this was a fun read. But for me, this was the weakest of the ten Dark Protectors stories. To be fair, it wasn't Lily's fault that, since I knew Marked would be coming out soon, I couldn't buy into her angst regarding her "visions" of Janie. Also, Rebecca Zanetti already gave Lily her wittiest lines in Shadowed when she was counselling the damaged and confused Jase Kayrs. Nevertheless, if you are a true fan of DP, you can't miss this!
Tamed is the third novella in the Dark Protectors series, preceded by Book 6, Shadowed, and followed by the grand finale Book 7, Marked.
