Sum It Up! Clear your schedule before picking up this book because you will NOT be able to put it down once you pick it up!

A casualty of the war between the demons and the vampires, Jase Kayrs has been missing for six long years. His older brothers want answers—but they’re going to have to get them from an unlikely source. For when Kane Kayrs tracks down Amber Freebird, what he finds is a blonde, vegan pacifist who has no intention of using her skills in his war…


Amber enjoys her life of chaotic freedom and has no intention of falling in line just because a sexy-as-sin vampire insists on order. Unfortunately, he discovers she may be the only hope they have of finding his brother, and there’s no way he’s going to let her go—even if it means mating her to gain her cooperation. The two are as different as can be, yet when the dominant Kane and the untamed Amber finally unite to rescue Jase, they just may find that opposites really do attract… (Goodreads)


Looking for a knock your socks off book that you just CAN'T put down? Look no further! Zanetti once again proves how much heat can be written in a book without literally setting the pages on fire.

When their parents' were killed, all of the Karys brothers were thrown into roles they would have to maintain for the rest of their lives. Kane became the voice of reason and intellect of the family. Strong, intelligent, intellectual and beneath it all, a warrior with a heart of steel with barely any emotions whatsoever. If something can't be explained away under a microscope, in his book, it does not exist, including love. Sure, most of his brothers have mates they claim to love beyond all else, but to him, that is a chemical reaction in their brains that makes them act like blubbering idiots.

Amber Freebird is a carefree spirit with not a care in the world and whose main aspiration is to attend a community college. As a vegan and a pacifist, Amber lives in an eco-community that lives off of their land. The only reason she has taken a job as a waitress is to pay for her grandmother's hospital bills. Little does she know just how much trouble her granny being in the hospital will actually cause for her? As it turns out, Amber is one of the last remaining demon destroyers. But since she doesn't even believe in vampires, demons or anything else of the supernatural variety, that can't possibly be true, right? Boy does grandma have a lot of explaining to do.

With Amber's powers no longer being shielded from the world, she is now broadcasting like a beacon that sends Kane Karys right her way, among other creatures. When he seeks to enlist Amber's help, he is beyond dumbfounded when she acts as though he is some nut from the loony farm even after he tries explaining the very serious matter of Jase. But when reality comes knocking at her door, or rather tearing her door from off its hinges, she is forced to face the truth, and trust in the only man who can save her, Kane. When Kane finds himself wanting this little minx more than he has ever wanted anyone, he chalks it up to the stress of losing Jase, proving just how dumb smart people can truly be.

Also, Jase may be coming to the end of his captivity with the demons, the question is will he be rescued before he gives up his will to live. And little Janie is all grown up and has a few tricks up her sleeve to see this war come to an end.

Throughout this series, fans have watched the interactions in her dream world between Janie, Zane and Kalin, well, things may be finally coming to a head. And there is no telling what that outcome may be.

Clear your schedule before picking up this book because you will NOT be able to put it down once you pick it up! And do not cheat yourself, read this entire series. Even though you can read this book as a standalone without being too lost, that is not something I would recommend seeing as how it would not give you quite the same emotional impact. And trust me, you will NOT be disappointed.
