Guardian's Grace by Rebecca Zanetti

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.

There’s only one way to find out . . .

Photographer Grace Cooper has had it with vampires, demons, and the rest of an immortal world she was happier not knowing about. She also doesn’t believe she’s destined for some great battle because of an old birthmark. Forget the fact that her mate is the sexiest thing on two stubborn feet, or that her brand is fading along with her health. She’ll handle things on her own—until an old enemy reappears and she learns the only way to stay alive is to actually mate, wild sex and all, with that ripped and dangerous Adare—a powerful, captivating Highlander who demands nothing less than everything . . .

I've realized that it is quite impossible for me to resist any book that features the Dark Protectors. With this series, Rebecca Zanetti has created a world that I am completely and absolutely obsessed with. Demon hybrids, vampires, shifters, humans, other dimensions, keys, prophets... There are so many characters and elements still to discover and Guardian's Grace only made me hungry for more.

I went into this knowing that I probably wouldn't like Grace. The thing is, I haven't liked her in any of her appearances so far. However, I had a very strong feeling that things would change with this book. I trusted Zanetti to make me respect the heck out of her heroine and guess what? By the end... I did!

As I said, I'm obsessed with the Dark Protectors, and obviously the Seven have captured a piece of my heart, so Adare had already earned his place in my harem. He was a hot, brooding, Scotsman who continued to make me melt! He saved Grace's life by mating her (non-sexually) and had a hard time keeping up with her ever since. Grace valued her independence and wasn't eager to let someone start making decisions for her. All of this amped up the tension between them big time, revving up their sexual attraction even more.

"There's a simple truth you need to get into your stubborn head right now. I know you were raised human, but my world is simple. No soldier, no immortal male, would ever let his mate risk her life for his. Period." He lifted a hand. "I don't care if that's politically incorrect or not how the humans live these days. That's fine for them. But it's in our very nature, my very nature, to put your life before mine. Before almost anybody's, in fact." - Adare

Well said, my friend.

While Grace kept putting herself in danger and Adare kept having to save her, the rest of the world was kind of falling apart. Something else is brewing in this supernatural world and I'm definitely here for it. I love how Hope and Pax have aged and matured and I'm excited to see their involvement when everything unfolds. The bad guys have new tricks up their sleeves and I'm wondering how it will play in the books to come. This was a spectacular read and I'm eager for more!
