Alpha's Promise by Rebecca Zanetti
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This Dark Protectors series is just the best. It has a little something for everyone - budding romance, smutty goodness, action and adventure, and even childlike innocence. Yes, there is a larger storyline out there that begins way back at book #1, but you can probably pick up wherever (I did, then went back to fill in the gaps).
This book follows the Viking, after his return from a few hell worlds. No biggie for these guys, as he eventually gets put back on full duty. It helps that his craziness is tempered by his inability to be killed by most things. As one of the guys who is supposed to be holding the world together, he is a bit prone to wanting to sacrifice himself for "the greater good." Having left his brother back in a particularly bad hell world, he has a singular goal: to find his way back to take his place. Is there more at play? Yes. But all of that gets thrown off course when he ends up accidentally kidnapping Promise.
Promise is a very logical and methodical person, so her world doesn't leave a lot of room for fantasy. After years of repressing any whimsy, accepting her place in this insane world of theirs is a challenge. Luckily, she can hide in her science and math. On the surface, these two seem completely mismatched. We all know how that goes, though, and we ultimately end up with a HEA, for them at least. I'll keep reading this series until they blow up the Dark Protectors universe, or until they run out of mates to match with. Bring on the next book!
