Not even when she learns she once agreed to mate him. Yeah, that was years ago, before she was kidnapped and tortured, before she lost her memory. Now she knows just one thing about herself–she’ll do whatever it takes to bring down the monsters who took her, even trust her ex.
He’s got her right where he wants her. . .

My Review 
Twisted happens to be book 5.5 in the Dark Protector series though it actually happens to be the first in the series that I have read. I met Rebecca a few months ago at a World-Building workshop that I was moderating and was able to get amazing writing advice from her which turned my interest towards her books. I stumbled upon Twisted through NetGalley and just had to give it a shot and I am so glad I did. I was a bit nervous about it being book 5.5 but honestly I wasn’t missing anything as far as information or world-building that left me hanging. It can absolutely be read as a stand alone though trust me when I say that you won’t be able to stop at Twisted. You’re going to want to read more and thankfully Rebecca has 7 full length books and 2 novellas in the series for me to devour. Twisted centers around Maggie and Terrent. Two wolf-shifters with a surprising connection that leads them through some interesting twists and turns while Maggie tries to figure out who she is and Terrent tries to win back the girl who’s heart he had already won before. I loved the story and I loved Maggie, especially when she punches Terrent in the face for being an idiot. Go Girl Power! This one was a quick read that I really enjoyed. If you aren’t familiar with Rebecca’s works this one will suck you in. The small peeks at Jase that I got in this novella left me wanting so much more and I can’t wait to find out what his story is in upcoming works.

About the Author
Rebecca Zanetti wrote her first story when she was six – a romance between a princess and neighboring prince.  The princess fell out of her castle and the prince rescued her. A happily ever after was had by all.
This theme of romance has been carried through Rebecca’s works until present time.  While today’s heroine may have a medical degree, black belt in Karate and her own 401K, she’s still after that happy ending.  And today’s prince may have fangs and wear a black hat, but hey, a modern princess likes a guy who bites.
Rebecca attended Pepperdine University, earning a bachelor’s degree in Journalism with a Political Science emphasis.  While there she worked as the Editor-in-Chief of The Graphic newspaper, a member of the Pi Phi Sorority and an intern for President Reagan, who still gave 3-5 speeches a week, even though he was no longer president. 
After college, Rebecca worked as an art curator and a Senate aide before heading to law school, where she received her Juris Doctorate from the University of Idaho.  She married Tony Zanetti in the middle of her second year of law school and became pregnant with their first child during the third year.  She graduated law school, gave birth three weeks later, and took the Bar Exam three weeks after that.  All she remembers about the bar exam is that it was so quiet in the testing room, she thought about taking a quick nap.  But she continued on, passed the bar and became a lawyer.   She worked for a large firm, then a small firm, then the county while also teaching legal classes at her local community college.  Now she writes about vampires.
Growing up amid the glorious backdrops and winter wonderlands of the Pacific Northwest has given Rebecca fantastic scenery and adventures to weave into her stories.  She resides there with her husband, children and extended family who inspire her every day.  Rebecca has completed several manuscripts, winning award throughout the writing industry for her work.  She is currently working on the Dark Protector’s Series published by Kensington Brava.
