A new-ish (ok – I’m late, again) from Rebecca Zanetti (a favorite) that mixes romantic suspense with paranormal and comes out ..oh… hot, steamy, intriguing and leaving you wanting more. Realm Enforcers will feel familiar to (and perfect for) fans of Dark Protectors will enjoy this – and new to the author readers are in for a treat!
I loved Zanetti’s Dark Protectors series – and this is a sort of spin off using MC gangs, cops, magic and enforcers – all with Zanetti’s particular blend of tension and action surrounding a sexy connection and some overwhelming threat du jour.
In this story we have Kell (from the Dark Protectors) an Irish (Dubliner) coven 9 witch enforcer. Now that the worst of the battle for supremacy has abated, he’s in Seattle researching a motorcycle gang that is dealing in a drug deadly to witches.
Lexi is a vice cop, determined to root out all drugs. Her currently imprisoned father was a dealer, and she’s not wanting anyone to go through what she did, from either side. Now with a new drug on the scene, she wants to find out who is dealing and responsible, and stop them.
Lexi is often all to serious, taking on responsibilities that she cannot, as one person, actually take in hand. What she can do, and does well is care about the outcome: finding and stopping the trail of the drug. Unfortunately the smart-mouthed Kell seems to get in the way, making the earth under her feet feel shaky – which makes her cranky.
Despite the attraction, Kell knows that a relationship with the uber intriguing Lexi isn’t possible…. But the more she seems to push him away…
If you are a fan of Zanetti’s Dark Protectors, you’ll enjoy this series and he interplay between Kell, Lexi and all the family members. Clever and believable, this is a wonderful introduction to a new series.

If you love the Dark Protectors, these wicked hot Realm Enforcers are for you!
Alexandra Monzelle is a hard-fighting, heat-packing Seattle vice cop, and she’s not much interested in being protected. Her short skirt and sex-kitten heels are tools to lure her suspects into talking about the deadly new drug hitting the streets. She can take care of herself and then some. Unfortunately, she can’t seem to get that through to Kellach Dunne.
Kellach is a fresh import from Dublin, and he’s landed at the heart of a vicious motorcycle club that deals in guns, narcotics, and mayhem. He’s all male, all rough power—and all interference in her damn investigation. Maybe he’s one of the good guys. Maybe not. Lex knows an affair with an immortal like him would risk everything. No matter how delicious he looks…
