Danger awaits an alpha male vampire and his botanist wife in this paranormal romance novella from a New York Times–bestselling author.
The war is over. Peace, at last. Cara Kayrs is healed after decades of illness and ready for a break.
Too bad her brooding, alpha vampire husband can't seem to change gears. In their twenty-five years together Talen Kayrs has learned to sense every shiver of her body, to ignite her desire with a word or a look. She would think he could learn she's not some fragile damsel in distress.
But Talen is on edge, watching their backs, treating her like she's made of glass. Like there's something following them, a deadly threat that somehow none of their intelligence has uncovered. It's enough to drive a woman crazy, and Talen has plenty of those tendencies already.
But what's even more maddening is that he seems to be right…

Zanetti follows Hidden with another high-octane mix of action, romance, suspense, and the perfect amount of levity. Brigid is a government-sanctioned computer hacker with a penchant for bad boys. She's part of an offshoot division of Homeland Defense in Washington, D.C., that's staffed with misfits who have something to prove. When she and her handler, Raider Tanaka, are forced to go undercover and pose as a couple to stop a computer crime ring with ties to the mob (and clear her father's name in the bargain), they quickly discover their attraction is real. Raider is a federal agent with no time for entanglements; he's all about his job and getting revenge on the men who killed his partner. He tries to force himself to see Brigid as just a means to an end, no matter how much she intrigues and challenges him. The blend of memorable personalities found on the Deep Ops team, combined with a slowly teased-out bigger story arc, makes for a deliciously inviting and immersive story.
