Guest Post and Giveaway with Rebecca Zanetti

United By Books was pleased to let Rebecca Zanetti take over the page today.....


First, I’d like to say thank you to the United by Books crew for having me over today – I love reading the reviews here, and it’s an honor to be able to jump in and play.  I’d also like to thank Kelly Mueller from Books-N-Kisses for putting together such an awesome blog tour for Hunted’s release.

Hunted is the third book in the Dark Protector series, and the first one that features a witch as a heroine.  Her name is Moira Dunne.  Witches in Moira’s world use quantum physics and string theory to alter matter…no mysterious hocus pocus.  I had some fun creating a witch and even thought about what I’d do if I had magical powers to alter matter.

The first thing I’d do would be to drop twenty pounds and give myself abs of steel.  Yeah, I know…come on.  Sure, I’d cure all illnesses and erase hunger and war.  But first, abs of steel.  Then the illnesses and war.  I think it’d be a lot easier to erase illness and hunger if I had abs of steel.  Don’t you?

Besides being a witch, Moira is a normal woman fighting to find her way in life.  Destiny has declared her to have one path, and her very sexy, Alpha mate wants her on another.  The problem is, Moira wants to follow her own way.  I think a lot of us can relate to this dilemma.  We’re supposed to be one way, except our hearts tell us to forge another path.  Whether it’s to get married, to be a stay at home mom, to be a career woman…there are so many ways to go, and only we can determine which way is right for us.   Moira has to not only figure out her path, but then she has to fight for it.  She does. : )

Of course, the stronger the heroine, the stronger the hero has to be.  Conn Kayrs is the ultimate soldier—a tough guy with a sweet side.  While he and Moira struggle to find their way…not once does he waiver from his devotion and strong belief that the two of them can make it.  Of course, Moira almost has to blow him up for his Alpha tendencies to relax, but hey, for witches, that’s just dating.

Ready or Not

Moira Dunne is a witch-the quantum physics kind. Time and space are her playthings. Which might explain why her one-night stand from a hundred years ago has turned up to "claim" her-and request her family's assistance with the war he's brewing. But the more she learns about Connlan Kayrs, the more she comes to think this is normal behavior for him ...
                       There's Nowhere to Hide 

When Conn and Moira tumble on the moonlit grass, Conn hadn't meant to mark her for his mate of all time. She was only twenty! But it wasn't easy to wait for her. It was even harder to forget her. So when he finally returns for his wicked-hot witch, he's ready to let the sparks fly. Even if he burns up in flames ...
 Giveaway:
So, to celebrate Moira’s triumph, I’d like to give away a signed copy of either Fated or Claimed to one commenter here today.  Let me ask you this:  Did you always know your path in life…or are you still uncovering it?

Just fill out the Rafflecopter below to be entered

I knew my life plan from the time I was about 7. I decided I was going to be an engineer and that's what I did. I grew up very poor in a small town that I new I had to get a way from. So I did extremely well in school and went to a private university on grant money and became a Ceramic Engineer. I moved to a the subs of Cleveland and have never looked back. My plan successful :).

I'm still uncovering my path! Until a few years ago, I had a pretty good idea of what I wanted my life to be. But my priorities are different now that I have children.
Thanks for the giveaway!

I'm still working on it! I had one path that ended and I've been raising kids, which is a path in itself that never goes away. But I'm looking to see what I really want to do, I feel like something needs to change. Thanks for the giveway!

Rebecca said...

Hi Everybody! I've enjoyed all the very thoughtful answers here - thanks so much for commenting! Good luck in the drawing. :)

Carrie said...

I always knew what path in life I was taking during my early years. Marriage, creating a loving home and raising our four boys. I believe life puts us on many paths during our lifetime whether we embrace it or not. What a mindful question. Thanks for asking Rebecca and thanks for the wonderful giveaway. I'm so looking forward to reading Moria and Conn's path!

Oh my goodness ... abs of steel is too funny and so something I would change about myself too. As for the path of my journey ... honestly I have yet to figure it out. I feel as if I am still being challenged no matter what decisions I make. So I embrace it like ripping off a band-aid ... JUST DO IT!

Thanks for taking the time to host this blog and offering a wonderful give away.

HUNTED or Bust!!!

I would say my path is pretty much set. Having my son made my life complete and there are always surprises. Thanks for having this giveaway.

I stumbled onto my path in life, but then was in an accident a few years back that messed up my back/hip and so it threw me off path. I am trying to figure out what path the rest of my life will take, because unfortunately I can not physically do the previous path.

Some things I have always known about my life path since I was a child. I have always known I would never have kids and that I will die young. Other things I think I'm still uncovering;)

I kind of sensed since I was a child what my path in life would be. As we grow, that blurry childish vision becomes more clear.

Cssndr Mks said...

I've known what I wanted to do since I was about 13, but it took me until I turned 22 to admit it.

Tina B said...

I used to think so, but as changes have occurred in my life, I am not so sure. I know that I am content to be do what I am right now. Who knows what the future may hold. ;)
Thank you for the giveaway!

For 13 years, I have been following the correct course and one I have NEVER regretted...I have been a SAHM. I still am but I feel like at this point in my life, my path is starting to turn like it's preparing me for when my teenager is done with school and off on her own (SOB). Not sure where this next path is taking me but I'm trying to keep my eyes open and not let fear direct me away from the unknown!
