Rebecca Zanetti is the author of over twenty-five romantic suspense, dark paranormal, and contemporary romances, and her books have appeared multiple times on the New York Times, USA Today, and Amazon bestseller lists. She has received a Publisher's Weekly Starred Review for Wicked Edge, Romantic Times Reviewer Choice Nominations for Forgotten Sins and Sweet Revenge, and RT Top Picks for several of her novels.  She lives in the wilds of the Pacific Northwest with her own alpha hero, two kids, a couple of dogs, a crazy cat...and a huge extended family.  She believes strongly in luck, karma, and working her butt off...and she thinks one of the best things about being an author, unlike the lawyer she used to be, is that she can let the crazy out.


She swallowed and met his gaze. “All right. Let me get this straight. We’re going undercover to flush out a killer who’s obsessed with me, and you’re offering to play at being my man for real with no strings or future?” She hoisted the bag onto her shoulder. “That’s some ego. Are you that good in bed?”
“Yes.” And that was definite interest in her eyes.
She clicked her tongue. “I’ll keep your offer in mind.”
“You do that.” He maintained a low and calm voice. “While you’re considering, let’s look at the situation. You have publicly made me your fiancĂ© in order to draw out a killer, which means I have to act as such. Any halfway intelligent law enforcement officer or private investigator would keep his redheaded fiancĂ©e very close after the stunt you just pulled. If you’re not with me, the killer is going to be very suspicious.”
She stilled, expressions crossing her face rapidly. “That’s a good point,” she said slowly.
Yeah. Sometimes reality helped him out a little. Plus, the killer had a hard-on for her, and he must already have plans to take her at some point. She’d just upped the timeline. “In addition, you need protection around the clock now, and I’m willing to provide that. So while you’re keeping my offer in mind, we’ll be staying in the same hotel room or same apartment.” He made sure he had her full attention. “While we plan the wedding, of course.”
Her challenging smile thrilled something inside him. “That’s fair.”
He stepped back to give her some space. “Good. Are you ready?”
“Yes.” She looked around the room. “I do have to ask. What if I didn’t agree with you about your keeping secrets from me? Considering people shoot at you, and I’m going to be at your side, it seems fair that you tell me who these people are.” She cocked her head to the side and focused back on him.
“I have more immediate concerns than being fair,” he said smoothly. “You brought me into this mess.”
A frown drew down her eyebrows. “Listen. I want an answer about you.”
“I just gave you one.” At her mulish expression, he searched for better words that wouldn’t end in an argument.
Suddenly, the door blew wide open and bounced loudly off the table. “Anya!” he yelled, jumping for her.

Another phenomenal read from Rebecca Zanetti! I hope she continues to write books about sexy, genetically-enhanced soldiers because I have been hooked since book one of the Sin Brothers series. I cannot get enough! Rebecca's writing is great as always in Lethal Lies. She never fails to deliver amazing books filled with equal parts action and sexy romance. This story feels darker and edgier than previous novels. I loved that there was a lot more of a suspense element in this story due to the serial killer aspect. All of the other books have their fair share of suspense, but it was extra prevalent in this book. It will keep you flipping the pages, perched on the edge of your seat. 

These characters are both dealing with a lot of things throughout the story and I love how it brings them together. One of the strongest things the reader sees in these novels is the different relationships. Though I love the relationship between Heath and Anya, I also love seeing the three brothers interacting. They have such a strong bond and it translates so well within the story.

The ending of this book has me ready for book three! Denver has intrigued me from the beginning, so I am very much looking forward to reading his story. These books are a must for anyone looking for swoon worthy heroes and women that are as awesome as they are.

Review: The Siren's Son by Helen Scott!


He's an immortal warrior, but one lovely mortal will tempt him to defy his fate.

Alec Cantio is the son of a siren. He and his three brothers hide their true identities while protecting humans from the negligence of the gods. All Alec wants when he visits his favorite magic shop, Speak O’ the Devil, are provisions for his task. But he finds instead a mortal woman, innocent and brave, who tempts him to all he can never have.
Eilidh MacLeod just wants to close her grandad's shop, and mourn him in peace. But when she's thrust into a world filled with magic, mythical creatures, and gods, she must find a way to control her powers, or be destroyed by a vengeful Circe. At the same time, she must deal with her powerful attraction to the magnetic Alec.
Can Alec and his brothers protect Eilidh until she comes into her power? And can she harness her magic to save them, and all mortals?

This is the first novel I have read by Helen Scott and it will not be my last. I very much enjoyed this story and am looking forward to reading more from her. I am a big fan of paranormal romance. I especially love when I am introduced to new creatures or new spins on old ones. I love the fact that these brothers are male sirens that have wings. How cool is that? Though they still sing like traditional sirens. (The ending scene was my favorite!) This novel definitely gets points for being unique. I enjoyed the writing style and found myself drawn into the story quickly.

I loved that our female character was Scottish and that played a big part in the story. It was fun reading her dialogue. Her and Alec have great chemistry. There is a good balance between sweet and sensual scenes. I enjoyed that the novel had a good story line instead of focusing on sex. I love novels that not only have great relationships between the two main characters, but I also love about reading about familial relationships. These brothers had an interesting dynamic and I cannot wait to learn more about all of them. And, of course, I have to point out the stunning cover. I'm in love! 

I recommend this to anyone looking for a unique paranormal romance that is both sweet and spicy!
