Zane's Redemption (Scanguards Vampires #5) by Tina Folsom

Title: Zane's Redemption (Scanguards Vampires #5)
Author: Tina Folsom
Source: Author Request
Genre: Paranormal romance
Length: Novel

The last thing vampire bodyguard Zane wants to do is to guard a hybrid, a half-vampire, half-human, whose father wants to keep her a virgin. Known for his violent temper and callous lack of compassion, Zane’s out-of-control rage, born of the cruelty he suffered during the Holocaust, drives him to focus only on revenge. Trying to find the last of his torturers is his only goal in life.

Portia is a young hybrid with a serious dilemma: in a few weeks, her body will be set in its final vampire form. If she is to avoid having to live out her immortal life as a virgin, she must find a lover in that short time—something her father hires Zane to prevent.

The moment Portia and Zane meet, rules begin to bend, and a forbidden attraction bursts into flames hotter than the hell of Zane’s past. But that past threatens to pull them apart unless they can overcome their prejudice, forsake hate for love, and revenge for forgiveness.

I am still amazed each time I read a book by Tina. She gets deeper each time she writes and that’s what keeps me reading her awesome books because I love getting to know and really feeling the characters. Tina goes in deep with Zane and made him my favorite. I felt he got the best heroine and his story is very surprising.

You get an intense opening with rape. Tina just touches on it some, so if you are one that doesn’t like that stuff she doesn’t go into a lot of detail. What she does go into detail with is how Zane deals with the rape. Just keep in mind if you read the first books in this series we know Zane is a killer.

The romance connection between Zane and Porita is really hot. Then all the sudden something unfolds between them and he comes to find her on the enemy side. How? You’ll have to read to find out. I was really surprised how Tina fit it all together. It was awesome reading the story unfolding and what was going to happen between them.

This is my favorite out of the series. I loved the action, surprises, sex and characters. Kudos Tina on an awesome story!!

I highly recommend any paranormal romance reader to give her a whirl. If you love this series already, get ready for an exciting book with Zane.
