Wicked Bite is fantastic!


Witch Nessa Lansa is on a mission and she needs the Alpha of the Grizzly shifters Beauregard “Bear” McDunphy to succeed.  After Bear was gravely injured he was forced to shift and go into seclusion of three months to heal.  He feels more animal than man and has accepted that he will never be whole again.  Bear is not a fan of witches.  When Nessa barges into his life he tries to escort her right back out.  But her offer is almost too good to refuse…


Nessa a healer witch needs Bear’s help in her hunt for a drug lord.  She’s willing to heal him but in return he must mate her.  Nessa soon realizes that her plan has a few holes in it.  She may not be able to mate Bear and walk away as she anticipated.  After deciding to leave the grumpy shifter to himself they are attacked.  Now that Bear knows Nessa is in danger he’s determined to protect her.  Will they fall in love in the process or will the secrets between them tear them apart?


I love Bear and Nessa! Both characters are extremely strong willed. It’s positively electric when they butt heads.  Their desire to protect the people they love is beautifully sincere.  The attraction between them is hot and sweet.  Bear and Nessa are the perfect pair.


Ms. Zanetti’s ability to combine intense action sequences with scorching romance is masterful.  Wicked Bite is a non-stop thrill ride from page one.  The intrigue is enticing.  Trying to decipher who is bad and what is going to happen next is highly entertaining.  The battle scenes are vivid and will leave the reader breathless.  I’m very happy to Joyfully Recommend the latest and final Realm Enforcers novel, Wicked Bite.


Wicked Bite is a wicked pleasure!

Working as an informant for the DEA, Victoria Monzelle is used to living on the edge. But she’s not a big fan of getting kidnapped. And definitely not by a bunch of bad boy witches with fancy-colored fire to shoot at people. So when Adam Dunne shows up and claims to be a witch enforcer, she’s not going to put her life in his hands based on his word, no matter how smooth and smart and beautifully Irish his words sound. But on the run from a tribunal of witches, she isn’t going to make it far . . .

Before she knows it, Adam’s word is all that stands between her and execution. Sophisticated, just-gotta-ruffle-him Adam has vowed to make her his one eternal mate, wild and unpredictable as she is—to save her from a sentence of certain death. But Tori isn’t interested in being anyone’s pity date. And if they think she’s unpredictable now, they should see what’s coming next . . .

Victoria Monzelle is on her own personal mission when she is abducted by Coven Enforcers.  Adam Dunne is an enforcer working undercover.  He is determined to save Tori even from herself.  After all, they are family now that Adam’s brother is mated to Tori’s sister.  Unfortunately, Tori isn’t interested in Adam’s help and manages to find herself in deeper trouble.  Adam and Tori are forced to run for their lives and unravel a mystery before it’s too late.


Wicked Kiss is another great addition to the Realm Enforcers series from Author Rebecca Zanetti.  There are a lot of exciting things happening in Adam and Tori’s story.  I loved revisiting my favorite characters from Zanetti’s Dark Protector’s series.


Adam and Tori have powerful chemistry.  The sexual tension between them is hotter than Adam’s witch powers.  I love the fast pace of Wicked Kiss.  The action is top-notch, my favorite kind.  Zanetti has created a fascinating world that is woven into the Dark Protector’s series seamlessly. Zanetti successfully combines paranormal, romance, suspense, fantasy, alpha males, vampires, witches, demons and smoking hot bikers.


I enjoyed the fact that there are several plot twists throughout Wicked Kiss.  Zanetti keeps the reader guessing and anxious for what will happen next.  Adam and Tori barely escape danger only to find more right around the next corner. Wicked Kiss’s suspense will keep the reader speeding through the pages.  I barreled through Adam and Tori’s story in one sitting and I can’t wait to find out what happens next in Wicked Bite.  Zanetti’s Realm Enforcers are sinfully delicious.

Council, #2 A witch in training, a hunter on the prowl, and a world in jeopardy. Learning the rules of being a witch takes years, but Parris McCall needs to master them in only weeks. Knowing how to wield her magic is the one thing she has to keep her grandmother safe and herself alive. Ty Wallace is going mad with his desire for Parris, but he has to maintain an emotional distance from her. She’s a distraction in his quest to find Coven X before they grow too strong, taking The Council and everyone he knows down with it. As Parris labors through the academy manuals, the couple takes a trip to find Ty’s mentor. He’s their only hope in helping Parris with her studies. To their dismay, the old man has disappeared. Their only clue comes from a witch banished for actions against The Council. When they return, not only do they find their own lives threatened, but casualties in the war between the covens have risen. And a new life hangs in the balance.34,808 Words

Parris McCall is doing her best to learn to master magic within the few weeks that the Council gave her.  Imagine putting an entire lifetime of learning into a few compressed weeks.  She is doing this while juggling running her bar and her passion for one the man who found her in the first place.  Against all logic, Parris found herself totally in love with the man who brought her to the Council’s notice and had her making the deal to keep herself and her grandmother alive.

Ty Wallace loves Parris to distraction but he is fighting those feelings in order to help find the coven that seems to have a death hit against Parris; a magical group that they have named Coven X and that has escaped the Council’s notice.  He and a friend are also trying to help Parris get through all of the manuals from the academy and to gain control of her magic.  But when a few clues tell Ty that his old mentor might hold the keys to locating Coven X, Ty grabs Parris and they travel to the last known address of his mentor.  Of course, it’s not that easy.

Someone seems to be one step ahead of Ty and Parris and now his mentor is among the missing.  They receive a clue on what is going on from a very unexpected source and manage to avoid the traps that are out to make sure that not only will Ty and Parris fail but that Coven X can take down the Council as well.  This undercover cold war isn’t just going on in secret either, as Parris and Ty learn when they finally discover at least one of the moles that is from Coven X and passing on knowledge.  This mole has made it even more personal for Ty and Parris, and now they are redoubling their attempts to discover Coven X and bring it and its members down. 

When a member of the Council and a newly discovered witch team up to discover just who and what Coven X are, passion is only one of the things that explode around them in Return of the Fae.  I was very happy to revisit Parris and Ty after their initial journey into love.  This time Parris is working double time to learn about her heritage and master her magic while Ty is hunting for a rogue coven.  The more I learn about Parris, the more intrigued I am about her and her family’s struggle to keep safe.  I love the teamwork between Ty and Parris and of course their continued journey to finally be able to just explore the love between them.  I also felt the same outrage that Parris and Ty felt at the end when a special non-magical person was brought into the dangerous middle between the Council and Coven X.  I can’t wait for the next chapter in this series because it’s time for a serious slap down.  Return of the Fae is an action packed story filled with suspense and a furthering of a passion that is rocking more than one world.  If you haven’t read about how Ty and Parris met, then I highly recommend that you read “A Member of the Council” first, but Return of the Fae could be a stand-alone if you don’t mind mentions of things that went on before.
