The first book in a breathtaking new romantic suspense series that will appeal to fans of New York Times bestsellers Maya Banks, Lisa Gardner, and Lisa Jackson.


Under siege. That’s how Ryker Jones feels. The Lost Bastards Investigative Agency he opened up with his blood brothers has lost a client in a brutal way. The past he can’t outrun is resurfacing, threatening to drag him down in the undertow. And the beautiful woman he’s been trying to keep at arm’s length is in danger…and he’ll destroy anything and anyone to keep her safe.


Paralegal Zara Remington is in over her head. She’s making risky moves at work by day and indulging in an affair with a darkly dangerous PI by night. There’s a lot Ryker isn’t telling her and the more she uncovers, the less she wants to know. But when all hell breaks loose, Ryker may be the only one to save her. If his past doesn’t catch up to them first…


Full of twists and turns you won’t see coming, DEADLY SILENCE is New York Times bestselling author Rebecca Zanetti at her suspenseful best.





Heat from his body washed over her, but she lifted her head to meet his gaze. “We don’t have a relationship.”

He smiled then, and the curve of his lips held more determination than amusement. “I’m not letting you run, and I’m certainly not letting you hide, baby. Although neither of us has been in this for the long haul, I’m staying in Wyoming for the moment. The first thing that’s going to happen is I’m going to figure out who dared put a hand on you and make sure it doesn’t happen again.”

For the first time, she saw a side of him that gave her true pause. In the long haul, he’d be unbearably possessive. Why did that give her an intriguing sense of safety? “Knock it off,” she snapped in his face. “Get out of my business.”

That quickly, she found her back against the door and her front pinned by hard male. His hands planted on either side of her neck, his thumbs at her jaw, forcing her to look at him. “Something you need to understand and pretty damn quick is that your business is my business right now.” His thumb swept up and over the offensive bruise on her face.

“Step back.” Her voice trembled.

He ignored the very calm order. “No. You don’t want to tell me who did this? Fine. I’ll find out on my own, and I’ll have the name by the time I pick you up for supper. What you don’t want to do is deal with him or his case until I have that name. Kicking him in the balls might’ve just pissed him off more, and now you’ve let a bully stew on it for a while, which might be dangerous for you. Got it?”

“You have no right to interfere,” she whispered.

“Baby, I’ve been fuckin’ you for months. That gives me every right.” Anger glowed dark in his eyes.

“We’re done. Get out.”

His eyes softened. “You shouldn’t make statements you can’t back up.”

She shoved against his ripped abs.

He didn’t move a millimeter.

And then he did.

His head dipped, and his mouth found her neck and wandered up to her ear. His teeth scraped, and then his tongue licked the slight wound.

Of its own volition, her body did a full tremble.

He leaned back. “That.”

Her mind fuzzed.

His mouth slammed down on hers. She knew his kiss—often dreamed about it. Not soft and sweet . . . not even lustful. It was dangerous. From day one, she’d tasted danger on his tongue, and it burned her hotter than she’d ever been.

Never had she dated a bad boy, but after living her desired routine-driven life for years, she’d craved adventure, and he filled that need. He drew out a wildness she hadn’t realized she possessed.

He held her flush against the door, kissing her hard, sending a craving along her nerves that almost hurt. His tongue went to work, his left hand keeping her jaw open for him. His right hand found her hip and dragged her against the obvious bulge in his jeans. By the time he released her, she’d stopped thinking completely.

“What time are you finished today?” he asked, his breath heating her face.

“Fi-five,” she stuttered.

He leaned back and gently put her to the side. “Stay in the office until I come for you at five, Zara.” He ran his thumb across her bottom lip. “Cross me on this, baby, and I ain’t gonna be gentle.” He had already shut the door behind himself before she could take a whole breath.

She blinked several times, her fingers going to her still-tingling mouth. What had just happened?


Deadly Silence
Deadly Silence by Rebecca ZanettiMy rating: 5 of 5 stars

Hair-raisingly thrilling and sexy. Another gripping story by Rebecca Zanetti! 


“She’s in me, Devner.” He hit his chest with a closed fist… “In here. I don’t want days without her in them.”

Ryker Jones has made it his life’s mission to protect the one’s he cares about, so losing control is something he can’t afford. Not if the PI agency he runs with his brothers has lost a client, not with the sexy and assertive woman he’d been trying to keep things casual with but who has been slowly inching her way into his heart and especially not when someone is out to get her. Can he find a way keep everyone safe?

“You’re far more dangerous than I could ever be. Sexy and smart… and so damn sweet you kill me sometimes.”

Zara Remington knows next to nothing about the sexy, dark and secretive man she’s been seeing, but there’s something irresistibly appealing about him she can’t resist. And now that helping her friend has her under police scrutiny, Ryker is only one who can help. Can she be strong enough for them to survive when secrets are revealed and they’re assaulted on all fronts?

Love and hate, life and death, thrills and chills, Rebecca Zanetti is an expert at stirring a wide range of emotions in her books, Deadly Silence is no exception. A spinoff of the incredible Sin Brothers series, this first book in the Blood Brothers set introduces us to three men whose bond goes beyond blood, suffering together through beatings and mistreatments at the boy’s home they lived in and being subjected to odd tests and military style training, Ryker, Heath and Denver form their own little family, vowing to protect each other.

While the three of them continue to look for answer from their past, they decide to settle in Cisco in order to catch a serial killer. Ryker takes advantage of this to try to go beyond the casual limits he and Zara had originally establish because he just can’t get enough of the feisty woman who wears sexy underwear and bakes just for him. But he’s unwilling to share his past with her and even though she’s undoubtedly attracted to him and his alpha dominant ways, she’s reluctant to take a risk on a man who’ll most probably break her heart.

“My way, baby. Right here and right now? My way only. Talk.”
“We are going to have a huge-assed fight.”

As the plot unfolds, Ryker and Zara’s relationship evolves from sizzling lust to deep trust and delicious romance a mist exciting action, suspense and a whole lot of twists are revealed as new and old characters are expertly introduced. I’m not going to spoil you, but it is a spinoff for a reason so watch out for your favorite characters from past books!

Ryker and Zara were as great together as they were on their own. He’s a decidedly alpha male who’s loyal to a fault and is used to taking on the responsibility of the people he loves. He’s rough around the edges but has an incredibly big, protective and loving heart. Zara is his perfect complement, she’s sweet, caring, stubborn and brave enough to stand up to him. I just loved it when the two of them went head to head.

“A woman like Zara only submitted with true trust, and suddenly, he wanted that trust more than his next breath.”

Deadly Silence is book #1 in the Blood Brothers series by Rebecca Zanetti who writes consistently fascinating, nonstop action and smoldering romances. It’s a fast paced, exciting standalone you won’t want to miss. Told from several points of view, with a happy ending but still lots to resolve.
