***Lesley's Review of Twisted by Rebecca Zanetti***

Maggie is a wolf shifter who was captured and experimented on by the Kurjans. Now that a cure has finally been found for shifters (although not for vampire mates or witches), she can concentrate on creating a new life for herself and finally accepting that her memories are gone forever. Most memories, that is. Sometimes in the hazy world between dreams and dawn, she hears a Scottish voice, dark and deep, that sounds suspiciously like wolf-shifter Terrent Vilks. A man she happened to anger by kidnapping a few years back. Hey, it was for a good cause.

Terrent Vilks knows more than he’s let on for the past several years. After digging for answers, he knows exactly why the demons want Maggie dead. And he remembers his past with Maggie…very well. She is finally where he wants her. Now all he has to do is discover what exactly the Kurjans did to her, beat the demons into so much submission they leave her alone, and get her to fall in love with him. Again. Good thing he’s used to wrangling monsters.

Lesley's Review
I was thrilled when I received the ARC for Twisted. I am a BIG fan of this series. Rebecca Zanetti has worked her literary magic again. I couldn’t stop reading once I started. Twisted is book 5.5 of The Dark Protectors series. I do not recommend reading if you have not read the previous books. This Novella is about TerrentVilks and Maggie. We met these characters in previous books and I don’t know about you all but I was hoping there was romance budding between the two. But I did not expect the Twist in the story. The twist being that Terrent knows Maggie and they have a serious past.
I want you to remember me from before you were kidnapped ten years ago.”
Maggie, the smart-assed, clumsy wolf shifter, whose memory has evaded her for the last ten years, is sent to Wolf shifter headquarters to ferret out the traitor sabotaging the vaccinations. She has spent the last 10 years with the vampires and not with a wolf pack. Excited and nervous to be around her “people”, she’s hoping to help the Realm by catching the perpetrator. Maggie is taken toTerrentVilks. The man who makes her feel strange things, and quite frankly makes her nervous. Well, she did take him hostage once.
As head of the Bane’s Council, Terrent is in charge of hunting werewolves and investigating Shifter affairs. He’s all Alpha male and ready to claim his mate. He’s finally gotten Maggie where he wants her. With him but, she is one stubborn woman. Can he get her to trust him? Fall in Love with him? Or perhaps maybe, her memories will return. One thing is for sure, she is his. He’s waited 10 years, little wolf.
“I own you, little wolf. Never forget it.”
Maggie is caught between what she remembers and what she’s being told. How could he not tell her that they had a past! He wants her to mate with him. Maggie is having no parts of the mating but she can’t fight the feelings of lust and maybe a little something else. Terrent has to step up to plate immediately, protecting Maggie. Her pack has found out she was alive. They want her. The Raze pack, who they are currently staying with is unsettled, a new alpha is about to take over. As things get hot and heavy between Maggie and Terrent Maggie begins to feel her love for Terrent. She wonders if she really needs her memories to create a future. Create a family?Find a pack?
“Yeah. On some level, she remembered him. He’d been right. She’d loved him. Hell, maybe she still did. Seeing him taking down three wolves heated the blood in her veins. As an animal shifter, he was all alpha. The perfect mate to protect the children she wanted to have. Someday.”
It’s a short story but it packs a punch. We experience the intense lust between the two wolves and his dominate nature. Her sassiness antagonizing his in charge nature. Who doesn’t love an alpha male? One word – HOT.  I definitely love seeing them challenged. All that mixed together and it lead to some steamy moments.Oh, Yeah.
Air swept against her as they maneuvered to the rear of the cabin. The scent of Scotch, musk and male filled her senses. Her butt slapped the hardwood desk in his study. Then he was on her. Hands in her hair, mouth taking hers……..”
 Let’s not forget some kick assfighting and you have a sexy, action adventure.  I loved this story. Terrent has always been a character that struck my curiosity. And poor Maggie, had no clue who she is or where she was from. In this story we find closure for them. I’m happy they got a story. Every book in this series is so well written and integrated with the others, you really feel that you are always in touch with all the characters, forming a bond with the Realm.I highly recommend this series if you love alphas and the paranormal genre.  I give this book 4.5 novella stars.I’ll be waiting not so patiently for Jase’s story. Squeee!
