Rebecca Zanetti Guest Post: I Might Live Where Vampires Play


Rebecca Zanetti, authorThanks to Vampire Book Club for letting me play today. Man, am I at home here! I love vampires, and I absolutely love writing dark paranormals with a sense of ‘what if’ in them. As I write this, I’m sitting in my office of our new house…with boxes around me. The computer is hooked up, as is the internet, so all is good.

But we’ve been moving for a week, and it’s crazy. Last night we tried the gas range, and a sleek fan rose from the side, pulling tendrils of steam toward it. My husband and my son thought it was cool, while my daughter thought it looked like souls being twisted and pulled somewhere else.

Hmmm. My husband just looked at me with an expression that clearly said, “See what you’ve done?” LOL!

So maybe the fascination with vampires is hereditary? Or maybe we’ve just moved to a wonderful place to let the imagination escape. My office has a lovely view of a lake and tons of mountains…with plenty of trees. The perfect place for vampires to play, of course.

The hero in my newest Dark Protector novella, Tamed, doesn’t play much. He’s more of the kick butt and fight fate type of guy. As a soldier, he’s irritated that fate made him a prophet, while he sure likes being in the vicinity of Prophet Lily Sotheby, the woman who broke his heart years ago. He’s determined to win her back this time. Here’s a quick excerpt so you know what I mean:

Tamed by Rebecca ZanettiThey emerged into a chilly night. Lily shivered in the night air, and Caleb quickly shrugged out of his jacket to drape it around her. The darn leather covered her almost to her knees.

The woman looked small, fragile, and definitely kissable.

He turned and pressed her against the worn brick building, startled yet again by the delicacy of her petite frame. He stood at least a foot and a half taller, but the woman had such a presence he often forgot her stature. Slowly, he slid his hand up to cup her chin. Curiosity and need glimmered in the depths of her mysterious eyes.

Even so, he allowed several seconds to pass in case she wanted to move away.

She didn’t twitch.

Her chin held a delicate stubbornness that tempted him far more than he’d ever admit. Would she still taste like strawberries?

He lowered his head, giving her plenty of time to stop him. His lips met hers, and heat slid through his veins. The rightness of the connection clicked somewhere deep inside.

Then she sighed, and his head spun.

He pressed harder, his tongue sweeping inside her mouth.

Fire, need, and strawberries became the center of his world.

Tamed will be released on May 15 (pre-order it here). Thank you again for letting me share my world with you, and I hope you enjoyed the visit. If vampires walk the earth, where do you think they really live?  Have a wonderful week!

  1. Thanks again for having me over! I can answer my own question – I was in Vegas this past weekend, and I’m pretty sure tons of vampires walk the strip. 🙂
