Book Spotlight: Forgotten Sins’s Gray brothers vs. the Dark Protectors vamps… 3, 2, 1, fight!

Please help me welcome back award-winning author Rebecca Zanetti to GT!

It’s so wonderful to be back here at GraveTells! Thank you for having me over for some fun today.  My Dark Protector series has enjoyed its time here, and now I’m here to talk about my new series, the Sin Brothers. I thought it might be fun to compare the two…

1) The Dark Protectors are vampires who have deadly bad-vampire enemies.
2) The Sin boys are soldiers who were raised by their enemies.
3) The vampires bite. I mean…really bite.
4) The soldiers kiss…and I mean, really kiss.
5) The vampires fall in love with dangerous, enhanced women…a couple of whom can blow up the world if they so choose.
6) The soldiers fall in love with women who completely confuse them…they look soft and sweet, but they go down swinging and hard.
7) The vampires love once and it’s completely—and they’re comfortable with their destinies, for the most part.
8) The soldiers love once and completely—and they couldn’t be more uncomfortable with the idea of destiny…or love.
9) The vampires are facing an uncertain war and future…but they’ve prepared for centuries to defend their loved ones from fate itself.
10) The soldiers face a certain war and will do whatever is necessary to protect the lives they’ve suddenly created against the governmental entity that created them.

Well, I hope you’ve enjoyed a brief glimpse of the Protectors and the Sin Brothers. I have a feeling that if they ever met each other, they’d be instant allies. I hope.

Forgotten Sins (Sins Brothers #1) by Rebecca ZanettiHis Secrets Can Destroy Her
From the moment Josie laid eyes on sexy, mysterious Shane Dean, she was in love. Their desire ignited a passionate affair, and within weeks, Shane had slipped a ring on her finger. It seemed her every fantasy was coming true . . . until her new husband disappeared without a trace. Now, two years and one broken heart later, Josie is shocked when the hospital calls: Shane has been found . . . at a crime scene with no memory of how he got there.

Her Love Can Save Him
Shane can’t remember the blue-eyed angel at his bedside-or who he even is-but he knows something isn’t right. His hearing is razor sharp, his physical strength incredible, and the urge to protect Josie overwhelming. For powerful enemies are hunting him, and Josie is the key to discovering why. As Shane struggles to unravel his past, dangerous new truths come to light. Can he protect the only woman he’s ever loved? And can Josie trust a man she thought she knew-one who carries such a deadly secret?

Yeah. She’d go right in. Easier said than done. Josie took a deep breath, steeled herself, and walked inside, her attention instantly captured by the male figure perched against the hospital bed.
For the briefest of seconds, time stopped. Memories flooded through her mind, her body, maybe somewhere deeper until her lungs forgot their job. That quickly, she was helpless with the need to heal him. Coughing, she forced air down her throat and took a good look.
Several bandages were strapped across Shane’s muscular torso while a splotchy purple lump rose from his forehead. His long legs were encased in bloody jeans, and he’d crossed his thick boots at the ankles. He sat bare to the waist, his scarred chest and packed abs betraying a life of combat. The new wounds would fit with the rest.
Those scars broke her heart all over again.
His gray eyes lasered in on her, and she fought the urge to run. Pain, need, and familiarity swirled through her brain. Her skin warmed. Damn, he looked good. Dark brown hair swept back from his battered face, and even with the bruises, his rugged features spoke of strength and masculine beauty. Fierce and dangerous like a wolf.
His hair had grown to his shoulders and added a wild new edge to the danger.
She had a lot of layers, and he’d appealed to her on each one by providing security and fulfilling her desperate need to belong. Until he’d abandoned her. She faltered and clutched her handbag strap until the leather cut into her skin.
A throat cleared. “Mrs. Dean?”
“Josie.” She shifted her focus to a man in a rumpled brown suit who leaned against a poster depicting the inner ear. The room was small—examination table, smooth counter with sink, one rolling chair for a doctor. Yet she hadn’t even noticed the other man until he made a sound. “Detective Malloy?”
“Yes.” Shrewd eyes the color of his suit studied her, and he began scribbling in a notebook. “Is this your husband?”
The quiet power of Shane’s presence yanked her attention back to him. Even after all this time, he commanded her body’s responses. He cocked his head as if awaiting her answer.
She nodded. “This is Shane Dean.”
