after the death of his parents, and even though he wishes for a normal life, he is determined to rule and bravely fights for his cause He has waited centuries for his mate, and seeing him with her is absolutely beautiful He is tender yet possessive he calls her love from their first encounter awwwww , and is fiercely protective of her, and so open with his feelings and all that he wants with her Being with her starts to put everything in his life into perspective, even though his stubborn female tests him in ways he could never have anticipatedI should have known the Queen of the Realm would be a pain in my assI really liked Emma She is strong, brave, and not willing to bend to Dage just because he is the King She fights for her independence, and is determined to do what she thinks is right Emma is gifted with dreams that show her both the past and the future She has been dreaming of Dage for years, just as he has her, so by the time they actually meet their feelings for each other area already strong The passion between them is explosive, and love quickly followsYou ve never met the king, love He nipped her ear and her knees began to tremble It s the man who has youBut it s not an easy ride, for as keen as Dage is to claim Emma and start creating a life together, she won t give herself to him completely sure, she has a reason for pushing him away, but I got so frustrated with her, and actually screed at my kindle just talk to him But as frustrating as it is, again, it creates a great dynamic, and I loved the back and forth between them that so easily switches between anger, love and lustI m with the man, not the king The king can kiss my ass The king had every intention of kissing her ass, maybe biting it as wellAnd it s all interwoven with huge happenings in the Realm, and together it s one hell of a ride The Realm is at war and things are INTENSE Not only are the Kurgens getting braver with their attacks, but new characters are introduced, new alliances are formed and new enemies are declared At the same time, the race is on to investigate a virus that is infecting vampire mates, and a number of females are caught up in the unfolding mess which is where Emma s genius comes into play And on top of all of that, somebody on the inside is betraying the King, putting all of those he loves in danger like never before There are lots of political goings on, but mostly there is action, action, action And it s awesome There s great continuation from the previous book, with Talen and Cara s story progressing, and the rest of the characters introduced in Fated continue to be a part of the action Jordan and Katie s story is gaining intensity, and there are a fewromance set ups which look very promising Little Janie is adorable, and her dream wanderings hinting atdanger and excitement to come But at the heart of the series is the brothers, and I love the interplay between them Their banter and fist fights blend well with the genuine love and respect they have for each other, and I adored the scenes where all of the boys were together I also loved the lead into Conn s book up next there s a great set up there, and I m so excited to see how that all plays out Exciting, romantic and full of awesome paranormal action, this series is building into something really special I can t wait to carry on 4 stars 5 I m with the man, not the king The king

parents in Claimed, but from Emma s point of view this time.Main point for me that I loved, was the verbal sparring between the two of them, Rebecca Zanetti got this aspect of their relationship spot on You re hurt you need to feed Feed You watch too much television, love You don t drink blood Sure, during extreme situations But for dinner I prefer a nice steak with a vintage Cabernet Emma I promise I won t point a gun at you unless I intend to shoot Emma and Dage have history, only it s not in the normal way that a couple does I found this aspect and the building of their relationship around it a really nice touch it gave them a depth so that you didn t feel like you were reading an insta love type scenario I ve waited centuries for your touch Emma This isn t how I pictured it Now step out of the way, love You re wearing my colours, love Soon you ll be wearing me The chemistry between these two is fiery, because Emma is no push over and is used to being answerable to no one, her clashes with Dage in and out of the bedroom are many and varied I won t take orders from you Oh love, you misunderstand It wasn t the king demanding your obedience it was the man There s a difference Absolutely The king has rules The man doesn t Her concern warmed him throughout, from his toes to his ears and he d had no idea he d been cold The little scientist cared about him, the man not the leader He hadn t realized how much he needed someone to see the man he d found his mate.The development of this series as the books progress is really well handled, there are a lot of characters in each book and you are gradually introduced to themfully as things progress The sexual tension that has been simmering between Jordan Katie since the beginning is starting to sizzle, and I cannot wait to get to their book too see how it actually plays out between them However, the relationship that I expect is going to be the one that will make this series is Janie and Zane, bearing in mind Janie is 5 in this book we have a little time to travel and a whole lot of story to get through before we get to them, but the little bits and pieces Rebecca is incorporating into the books as we go are giving me butterflies, which is always a good sign to me as I know my anticipation is building As I am sure you have guessed, I have fallen in love with this series, so onto the next book

also has other psychic gifts, where she can she future events She has just been kidnapped by Kurjans, who will stop at nothing to destroy everything good, including her sister, and her mate the King of the Realm, Dage Kayrs While being transported she finds herself being rescued by the one man who haunts her dreams and visions But despite her feelings for Dage, she wants her own freedom She is determined to never be under a mans rule again, or his fist But she soon learns that Dage is nothing like her father, who was a drunk But just as Emma and Dage are starting to begin their mating dance, a threat looms over them, a threat that threatens the life of every vampire mate and animal shifter A virus that the Kurjans have created and released, a virus that if Emma doesn t find the cure in time, could destroy her sister and her unborn child But the consequences could tear Dage apart forcing him to choose between his mate and the people he has led for centuries.The Hero Dage, has taken the role of a leader well, but all he knows is how to fight He was trained to be a killer, to protect those under his domain, and despite his position as King, he knows where his true talents lie He is the oldest of four brothers, brothers that he will do everything in his power to protect no matter the cost He has been searching for his mate for years, and now he has finally found her and will keep her no matter what What an alpha male Dage was, but oh how delicious I could gobble him up He is a King of vampires and shifters alike, he is commanding, needs to have control, is a true leader that demands respect due him What I admired about Dage was seeing him unravel trying to work things out with Emma, who is just as stubborn and headstrong as he is Dage is full of pride and arrogance which tends to get him into trouble especially with his mate, who fights him at every turn.The Heroine Emma, is the oldest, and all of her life, she has only known the role of protector Her father was a mean drunk, and would beat them but Emma most especially since she protected her sister Cara Emma never has let go of that control of a situation, and doesn t know how to share protective duties It tends to get her into mischief and all sorts of trouble with Dage At first she wants her independence and to live her own life, but her heart says differently She craves Dage, even though she won t admit it to herself Emma was a fantastic heroine Emma is intelligent, sassy, stubborn, and loyal and what a match for Dage She is no door mat, and despite the abuse she has suffered, fights Dage at every turn, especially when he goes all Neanderthal on her.Plot and Story Line Claimed starts off with excitement and I was instantly hooked, I could barely put this one down I had such a difficult time putting this one aside, and could barely keep myself from getting too excited I still can t believe that it took me this long to get back to this series I read the first book ages ago, when a fellow blogging friend recommended her to me, and I just adore vampire romances, especially this type of vampire romance When I first started reading this one, it made me want to read the first book again, which I may end up doing soon However I have decided to carry on with this series I am hooked completely, and just can t get enough Where has this author been my whole life hehehe I adore her writing, and she writes with such an intense and you are overcome with a irresistible feeling that you just have to have your Zanetti fix its like a drug only better, where the only side effect is complete satisfaction and yearning forof this talent that sweeps you away If you have yet to read this author, you are missing out She has a way with creating stories that entice and pull you magically into her stories of danger, passion, and riveting emotion The plot is pretty intense, and whew what a climax, and all of the relationships between the brothers was entertaining, they do know how to act like a real family with plenty of broken bones and bloody noses and a teasing that made me reminisce about my own family relationships The love story is the center theme, but there is plentyhappening surrounding it, that envelops you like a cocoon There are some pretty steamy scenes here, and boy is there enough sexual tension to level any playing field A must read for any paranormal romance lover that needs something different but exhilarating.The Cover i adore the dramatic colors, with the purple and the yellow Seeing the overlook beneath the couple, I love the almost kiss look we have just draws you in from the moment you first see it and the first time I saw it I had a hard time getting back to reality.Overall View An engrossing romantic tale of suspense, intrigue, dangerous villains one step ahead of the good guys, a love story that is packed with emotion and sensuality, and a story to entice you forCAPTIVATING I enjoyed this one eventhan Fated More alpha goodness, strong heroine, suspense, action, great secondary characters that add to the story rather than distract and a surprise that I didn t see coming There is some push and pull from the heroine but after the first part of the book it wasn t as much I started this book about a year ago and realized it was the second book of a series I felt a little lost so I shelved it It helped to

talk a bit much at times I didn t really care about the chromosomes, how it works and how it didn t I sort of started to gloss over the facts.I did enjoy gettingbuild up with the other characters and it gets really hooked on the series because you want to know how their story will unfold.I liked that Cara s story is very strong in this book and you will see how her and the pregnancy will progress A great series that will suck you in I hope each books get better and better I am going to have a hard time expressing my feelings about this book.This book is the second in the series and I really do think you need to read the first book, Fated, before starting this one I believe you will be lost otherwise.Honestly, after reading the first book I was not really craving this story I knew the heroine would be a pain in the ass to put it mildly and while the hero was likeable, he did not grab my attention in the first book However with this series, it really is a seri I am going to have a hard time expressing my feelings about this book.This book is the second in the series and I really do think you need to read the first book, Fated, before starting this one I believe you will be lost

attention in the first book However with this series, it really is a serial So in for a penny, in for a pound.Dage, who is 350 years old, has been dreaming of his mate for 200 years He has finally found her in the form of the overprotective, brilliant geneticist sister of Talen s mate, Cara, in Fated Convenient huh Dage is very powerful, been the king since he was 25, is high handed and arrogant, but not a bad guy Emma, a psychic, has been dreaming of Dage for 15 years, but she is only 30 years old But she has also seen their death so she is pretty reluctant to get involved Emma is obstinate, arrogant, untrusting, stubborn, smart, mule headed are thereacronyms for stubborn , and loves her sister I cannot say I hate her, because her terrible childhood made her what she is, and her heart is in the right place, but I do not like her She actually maked me want to slap herthan one.I like kickass strong women But not to the point of being reckless and careless or living in denial Emma frustrated the hell out of me with her behavior She took over half the book to admit to feeling anything, other than desire, for Dage, refusing all the while to mate him, but continued to fight him for the rest of the book Not that he listened Thank goodness or there would have been no story She also did things that put her, and therefore others, in danger All in the name of being the sole protector of her sister And Cara is in some trouble There are huge problems brewing in the Rhelm and basically they all start coming to a head Therein lies the problem If I want to know what happens to Cara or Janie or Katie, from book one, I have to keep reading Yuck I hate being trapped in a serial disguised as a series Dage does some things in this book, trying to get control of Emma, that would normally be rage inducing Like throw the kindle ipad and DNF the book stuff, but Emma had me so frustrated and mad, I cannot say I blamed him I actually felt sorry for him The woman just would not bend at all The 3 stars I am willing to give are for the overall story A lot of stuff happened and most of it pretty big I have almost no feelings for Emma and Dage, except relief that she is finally accepting of her relationship If all of the heroines continue to be like this, I will scrap the series or go straight to the end and read Janie s Cara s 4 year old daughter story who is by far the star of the series Safety Gang yes there is a spoiler regarding OW drama view spoiler Color me shocked to find OW drama in a PNR You cannot imagine my surprise when a past lover of Dage s gets in Emma s face about a day into their relationship You have got to be freaking kidding me OK so their affair was a few hundred years ago before he dreamed of Emma and was very brief because she is a witch inways than one , but the woman still holds a torch Emma is not happy but holds her own quite well.OW does make another appearance later, but it is not much to it.I was just surprised it was there.There is no discussion of sexual history Neither are virgins hide spoiler Dage EmmaThe storytelling about the true love between Cara s older sister and the King of the Realm has started in the
