“Guardian’s Grace,” the twelfth book in Rebecca Zanetti’s “Dark Protectors” series, continues to expand the captivating universe with a story that blends duty, desire, and the relentless pursuit of love and destiny. This installment introduces readers to Adare O’Cearbhaill, a vampire soldier whose life is defined by honor and duty but whose heart remains guarded and isolated, and Grace Cooper, a photographer whose skepticism of the supernatural world is challenged by her own undeniable connection to it.

Adare’s character is a complex blend of strength, loyalty, and hidden vulnerability. Known for his cranky demeanor and hostile outlook, he embodies the warrior’s spirit, always ready to defend those in need, even if it means binding himself to a human he believes to be too fragile for the immortal world. Yet, his act of saving Grace by mating her—a decision driven by necessity—unleashes a turmoil of emotions he’s ill-prepared to handle, especially as Grace’s recovery and subsequent departure leave him grappling with an unexpected longing.


Grace Cooper, on the other hand, represents resilience and independence. Her initial reluctance to accept her role in the grander scheme of the immortal world speaks to a desire for normalcy and autonomy. However, the fading of her brand, along with her deteriorating health, forces her to confront the realities of her destiny and the possibility that her mate, Adare, might hold the key to her survival. Grace’s journey from skepticism to acceptance is fraught with challenges, not least of which is reconciling her fierce desire for independence with the undeniable pull towards Adare.

The relationship between Adare and Grace is a fiery dance of wills, where duty and desire collide with explosive consequences. Zanetti masterfully navigates their dynamic, crafting scenes filled with “spicy romantic interplay” that underscore the depth of their connection. As they face an old enemy and come to terms with the necessity of their mating, the story delves into themes of sacrifice, trust, and the transformative power of love.

“Guardian’s Grace” is praised for its “sizzling sex scenes and a memorable cast,” trademarks of the “Dark Protectors” series that Zanetti consistently delivers. The novel’s fast-paced, action-packed narrative ensures that readers are kept on the edge of their seats, while the emotional depth of the characters provides a rich, satisfying experience. Adare’s and Grace’s story is a testament to the idea that even the most guarded hearts can find solace and strength in one another, and that love, when embraced, can be the greatest guardian of all.

“Guardian’s Grace” is a thrilling addition to the “Dark Protectors” saga, offering readers a potent mix of romance, action, and paranormal intrigue. Rebecca Zanetti’s ability to weave complex narratives that captivate and engage is evident in every page, promising that the adventure and passion that define the series are far from over. As Adare and Grace navigate the perilous waters of their relationship and the battles that await them, they remind us of the enduring power of love to overcome the darkest of challenges.

Guardian’s Grace

Duty—or desire? Vampire soldier Adare O’Cearbhaill’s default setting is cranky. Or irritated. Or down-right hostile. Still, as a Highlander of honor and duty, he stepped up to save an enhanced and special human female by mating her—with merely a bite and a brand. The last person he wants in his life is a fragile human, yet he can’t get her out of his mind as she regains her strength before taking off for parts unknown. And when he discovers she is in danger, nothing can stop him from hunting her down—whether she likes it or not.
