Synopsis from Rebecca Zanetti
Janie Kayrs has known Zane almost her whole life. He was her friend in the dream world. She trusted him. But that was before he kidnapped her, spiriting her away to an isolated cabin to learn what her dreams never told her. Like how dangerous he looks. How he got on the wrong side of the negotiating table. And how much sexier he is in real life…

Zane is a battle-hardened warrior, used to command and solitude. But Janie has drawn him from the minute they met. His need for her could destroy everything he’s worked for, but the risk is too sweet not to take it. They call her the Chosen One. But when it comes down to the questions of peace or war, life or death, safety or passion, it will be Janie who makes the choice…

RT Book Review:
“Marked is a fast-paced, excitement-filled explosion of action that will not disappoint. Zanetti brings the heat with the story of two people who are supposed to be enemies, but have a bond so strong that it cannot be broken. The characters’ inner and outer struggles and how it affects their families, as well as their people, defines the strength in them. Zanetti keeps getting better.”– RT Book Reviews, 4.5 Stars Top Pick

The dream world environment matched Janie’s mood. Gray, wet, and stormy. She stood beneath a sheltering pine, her gaze on the ocean. Rain splattered against rocks, competing with the spraying waves. She shivered, even in the dream world.
He didn’t keep her waiting.
Zane walked across the sand, combat boots leaving large indents. Rain beat against his dark T-shirt, outlining ripped muscles in an impressive chest. Cargo pants covered his powerful legs as they ate up the distance between them. Even through the rain, his green eyes sizzled in a masculine face. Soon, he reached her, his expression guarded.
So many questions whirled through her that her mind blanked. “Why?” she whispered.
Something flashed in his eyes, and those generous lips smirked. “Why what?”
That easily, that quickly, she roared from sad to furious. In one smooth, well-trained motion, she slid back a foot, pivoted, and nailed him in the cheek with a right cross. The hit shocked her probably more than him.
Zane’s head jerked back.
Pain ripped from her wrist to her shoulder. His jaw was made of granite.
Thunder split the imaginary sky in waves of blue and red.
He pivoted back toward her, danger cascading off him.
Her wrist aching, she punched again.
This time he blocked her, easily capturing her fist in one broad palm. “No fighting in dream worlds, remember?” he rumbled, closing his hand over hers in warning. The thunder clapped again as if in agreement, a deadly reminder of when Zane and Kalin had come to blows in a dream world that had nearly exploded.
Violence wouldn’t be tolerated in the dream worlds, and Janie tried to pull herself back to reality. To start thinking and stop feeling.
Too late. Regret, pain, sorrow—every emotion slamming through her ripped to the surface, and all she could do was fight. She slammed a fist into his gut and then pivoted to nail him in the thigh.
With a low growl, he took her down.
Her butt hit the sand first, followed by her head. Zane sprawled over her, one hand manacling her wrists above her head, his jeans soaking hers.
Fire lanced through her so quickly her breath heated. Well over two hundred pounds of hard-muscled warrior pressed her into the soft sand, making it nearly impossible to gain purchase and fight. Air panted out of her lungs, rubbing her breasts against him.
Desire flared her nerves awake, multiplied to the nth power by the fury consuming her. She struggled futilely against him, her hips bucking. This was her dream world, and she’d change it.
Sucking in air, she tried to concentrate.
Stop.” Zane gripped her hip, yanking her closer.
The world stilled as his groin met hers. An erection harder than steel pressed against her. Heat pooled at the apex of her legs, stunning her with need, and lava unleashed through her body with an intensity unmatched by any other feeling. Ever.
He groaned. “Don’t try to leave the world. We’re not done yet.” His hold tightened.
She bit back a whimper at the unreal thirst, fighting the very real urge to pin him with her thighs and rub against him to find relief. Any relief from the fierce demand gripping her body.
His hardness shut down her brain, and she needed to think. To focus and plan. “Let go of me,” she breathed out.
No.” He lifted his head to pin her with a hungry gaze. “I hadn’t wanted to talk this way, but here we are.”
Oh yeah? She blinked and tried to wake up in Oregon. Frustration welled through her when she remained in place. Worse yet, a horrible relief loosened her muscles as her body remained enveloped by his.
I have as much power as you here since I took your blood.” Pure fact and no triumph colored his words. “And you’re going to goddamn stay here and talk this out whether you like it or not.”
Okay. A bit of a vampiric ego there.
