Publisher's Summary

New York Times and USA Today best-selling author Tina Folsom presents: Zane's Redemption: Scanguards Vampires

The last thing vampire bodyguard Zane wants to do is to guard a hybrid, a half-vampire, half-human, whose father wants to keep her a virgin. Known for his violent temper and callous lack of compassion, Zane's out-of-control rage, born of the cruelty he suffered during the Holocaust, drives him to focus only on revenge. Trying to find the last of his torturers is his only goal in life.

Portia is a young hybrid with a serious dilemma: In a few weeks, her body will be set in its final vampire form. If she is to avoid having to live out her immortal life as a virgin, she must find a lover in that short time - something her father hires Zane to prevent.

The moment Portia and Zane meet, rules begin to bend, and a forbidden attraction bursts into flames hotter than the hell of Zane's past. But that past threatens to pull them apart unless they can overcome their prejudice, forsake hate for love, and revenge for forgiveness.

Love is Redeeming

Yvette told Zane “I hope you fell in love with your worst enemy”. Little did Zane know how true her words would ring. Zane’s Redemption is exciting, passionate, soul redeeming book.

Zane is a fierce warrior who doesn’t believe he deserves to be loved because of what was drilled into him as a young man inside of a concentration camp. He has become a jaded, cold, violent vampire whose only motive in life is to kill those that wrong him and his family. He believes his heart can’t love again until he meets the young innocent Portia that tempts him like no woman ever has. Portia is a hybrid (half human, half vampire) determined to lose her virginity before her body set into its final vampire form. No man has ever made Portia body sizzle like Zane has and she is determine to learn more about the man than just a physical attraction.

I am a huge fan of all the Scanguard books so this was no exception. But of all the books in the series, this book was the most beautifully written with a heartbreaking back story. Zane was scarred not only emotionally but mentally as well. Portia has her work cut out for him, trying to save Zane but it’s worth it in the end. To say that I enjoyed this book is an understatement. This book is a great addition to any PNR fan that loves, romance, excitement, a little suspense, some hot sex scenes and a HEA to top it off.

It’s worth a download. All the books in this series are worth a download. Love them!

Impatient for the next book.

Another hit for Tina Folsom. I loved this book. Along with Gabriel's Mate this is up there as being one of my favorites from this series. Defiantly read this series in order. If you like romance, hot vampires, and a great story you won't regret getting this series. I personally think bald men are sexy, as long as they go for it completely and not partially. I am impatiently waiting for the next books. I know at least 3 more are written, just a matter of time to get to audio format. So tempted to buy on my kindle and read first. Other authors I recommend if you like Tina Folsom are Thea Harrison, Larissa Ione, Charlaine Harris, Sherrilyn Kenyon, and Nalini Singh.

AN INTENSE TALE OF ATTRACTION & REDEMPTION

Well Zane (the brooding, loner and emotionally scarred member of the Scanguards) has been a bad bad boy again so he's downgraded to being a mere babysitter for a 20 year old halfbreed virgin named Portia.

He's on the edge, angry and barely stable but he takes one look at Portia and there's instant mutual sizzle and she's determined he's going to be 'the one'. This is a compelling listen about forbidden desire, duty, temptation and his quest for vengeance for heart-wrenching sins that was done to him and his family. As we learn, along with Portia, of Zane's intense torturous history understanding and compassion slowly breaks through his shell and, as a result, he becomes even more likeable.

This is a well written and developed storyline with great characters, a lovely puppy called Z, surprises, danger, twists, fun and a passion that slowly and naturally builds as Zane and Portia are helplessly drawn together until there's steamy, but not graphic, sex scenes and a touching romance. However, there's an OMG revelation and the imagery of Zane's newly found feelings and emotions being suddenly drained away is heartbreaking. The Scanguard Team joins in to hopefully turn revenge and anger into forgiveness and love.

Worth a credit? I just have to read 'Scanguards Vampires' and it's an auto download for me and if you haven't already listened to any of these I strongly suggest you start at book 1 and enjoy a great paranormal series. So, YES, well worth a credit and TF seems to be adding more and more characters so the series could hopefully go on and on.

Great as always!

I'm still listening to the story right now, and even though I've read this one before, I still have issues that I need to get off my chest. Every time I read through this story I get angry with the guys of Scanguards. Why is it that they are instantly willing to believe some complete stranger, Portia's so called father, over Zane. They know that Z's not one to fall for BS stories or fall prey to some emotional drama, but yet they won't believe him when he tells them what's really going on with Portia. Samson is so blinded by his own prejudices that he can't believe any 'father' would do something so terrible, like what Zane is suggesting, that he calls Zane a liar and a fool for falling for Portia's 'act'. I'm so upset with all of them, especially Samson. For the first time I'm finding myself calling Samson names and yelling at him, because he is seriously disappointing me. I realize that Zane's past gives them all pause, but they aren't looking at this situation as an individual moment, they are lumping it in with everything else from his past and that's wrong. Also, I think they chose wrong when it comes to punishing Zane for what happened with the bad guy at the beginning. Zane did what he did to protect the girl, the real victim, and they are acting like he did some monstrous thing without cause, like he did it for fun. Which is total BS. Ok, I'm going back to the story now.

So, I'm done reading now and I still love this series, even if the guys angered me a bit. Zane and Portia are a great pair/ Where he is angry and closed off, she's open and carefree. Granted she still has some issue of her own, but she's the light that Zane has needed and finally found. I still can't help but be upset about how the other guys were so cruel to him, but I understand their concerns. Zane has a sketchy past, but they still should have at the very least given him the benefit of the doubt. The fact that they weren't even willing to investigate his claims and instead chose to outright dismiss them really upset me. I'm so glad that Zane has Portia now. She was intimidated by him at first, but quickly came to see that there was much more to him than he let on. They make a great pair and I'm glad they made it out together.

Off to read/listen to the next story.

The Monster has a heart

The narration of this story was as enjoyable as the prior books. Zane was redeemed well. We came to Learn about his past and he faced it head on.

Yvette got her wish!!

Yvette told Zane that she wished he would fall in love with his worst enemy!! Well he did, or at least his enemy's daughter. Every since Zane was introduced in this series I have wondered what his story was. What made him such a dark character?? Well this tells it all and I'm surprised that he isn't more dark then he is. But this book shows that he also has a "human" side that he keep buried deep. But love brings it out in him and it is the only thing that is going to save him. But he almost lets his hatred for his enemy destroy his chance for love.

A great addition to the series, but the narrator need to work on his female voices.

Finally I understand Zane

This book is a very special one, Tina married fact and fiction beautifully. It ddosnt make light of the dark history it represents but not does it wallow in the misery of that time. The characters are strong and give life to the book. I'm going to start with Porsches father he is not the man you expect. At first you believe like most father's he's a protector and loves his daughter with no question. But when his daughter confronts him in a fact made known to her by her best friend you see a side to him that is more then a bad guy although the twists in this story may make you wonder where it is going but stay with it it's worth the wait.

Ok porshe her self is not what she seems either she at first comes across as a shy residing girl who followed what her farther days goes to her college lessons and all in all is an a student but later she seems brattish and shallow only to be the second strongest character in the book.

Zane what can I say finally i understand his lone wolf approach to his life his need to gaurd what he loves as well as protect who he is. You glimpse the man who became a monster in his own mind only to find that he wasn't the monster he thought he was.

This book touch's on the true horror of the holocaust and the men who caused it and the people who lived it. I'm not Jewish but being disabled had i lived at that time I too could have found myself in a concentration camp as did many others gypsys, gays,lesbiens etc for it wasn't just religious beliefs that landed you there. It was the idea of a mad man who played God with his country and all those he invaded. This book reminds us it should never happen again.
