Janie Kayrs has known Zane almost her whole life. He was her friend in the dream world. She trusted him. But that was before he kidnapped her, spiriting her away to an isolated cabin to learn what her dreams never told her. Like how dangerous he looks. How he got on the wrong side of the negotiating table. And how much sexier he is in real life…
RT Book Review
“Marked is a fast-paced, excitement-filled explosion of action that will not disappoint. Zanetti brings the heat with the story of two people who are supposed to be enemies, but have a bond so strong that it cannot be broken. The characters’ inner and outer struggles and how it affects their families, as well as their people, defines the strength in them. Zanetti keeps getting better.”– RT Book Reviews, 4.5 Stars Top Pick

Please welcome Dark Protectors Series author Rebecca Zanetti to Diane's Book Blog.
Thank you so much for having me here, Diane! It’s a pleasure to pop by and play. The interview questions were wonderful and a lot of fun to answer.
If you were stranded on a desert island which of your characters do you want by your side?
This is a great question. I’d probably want Dage Kayrs, the king, (Claimed) to be by my side because he’s hot, dangerous, protective…and he can also teleport. J So we might play at the beach for a while, but he could always transport me home in time for dinner.
What is your typical day like?
You know, that’s a tough one right now because we’re so busy at home. So I kept track today just for fun. I spend a lot of time answering emails, writing new content, and driving kids around. And laundry. Definitely…laundry. Oh, I also drink two home-made lattes with almond milk – yum! I also try to talk to my mom and sisters at least on the phone once a day or so…if we don’t meet up for lunch or something. Other than that, I’m under a deadline, so I’m typing away.
How do you overcome writer’s block?
I sit down and write. With three publishers and now five ongoing series, I have to sit down and write. I’ve signed contracts and have definite deadlines, so I have to meet them. Writers write. J
What inspired you to write your first book?
You know, I always wanted to be a writer, and figured one day I should give it a shot. It was the winter of 2009, and we were snowed in. Seriously snowed in, so it just seemed like time. I had just seen Twilight, and I really liked it, so I figured I’d write a young adult book about demigods. It was truly terrible, but I started working on craft and discovered I’d rather write adult romances. I sold Fated, the first Dark Protector book, in December of 2009 to Kensington publishing. Once I started writing, I couldn’t stop. So here we are, and I’m having a ball.
Can you share a little of your current work with us?
Absolutely! I’m working on a brand new series called The Scorpius Syndrome that’s sexy, gritty, and suspenseful. We’re opening it with a novella called ‘Scorpius Rising,’ which will be in the On the Hunt anthology next August. The novella features Nora Medina, a brilliant microbiologist, and her ex-husband, Deacan McDougall, who’s a soldier trying to protect the world from a deadly bacteria. Things get heated and quickly.
Do you have anything specific that you want to say to your readers?
I’d really like to say thank you. For all the support, the wonderful reviews, and the touching emails, I can’t express my gratitude enough. It means more than I can say.
Diane, thank you so much for having me over today!
Thanks Rebecca you are welcome back any time and good luck with the tour!
