Leader of the VC Warriors Cincinnati branch, Duncan Roark, has devoted his long life to the Warriors he calls brothers and the Vampire Council, protecting innocents of both the vampire and human race. Things change suddenly when it is ordered that he and his fellow Warriors train human Social Workers to protect themselves in their new world of vampires. Falling in love with a human was something Duncan never thought possible, but love her he did. Now instead of being the ruthless leader he was trained to be, his focus has turned to finding the woman he loved and let go.Pam Braxton is outgoing and loves her job working with children, but when she realizes her live in boyfriend, Kenny Lawrence, has been using her and her job for his illegal activities, she becomes withdrawn, and her world is turned upside down. Deciding to take matters into her own hands, she stays, trying to learn more of his betrayal so she could see him punished. That decision sucks her deeper into a relationship that has turned dangerous and abusive. Overhearing a plot that would put everyone she cares about at risk, she finds the courage to try to stop the monster who has threatened her friends and the man she truly loves. Now Pam is on the run, alone and with a secret that could change the already unbalanced world of vampires and humans.As Duncan searches for Pam, the threat of losing his leadership role has the other Warriors worried, but their loyalty for Duncan is strong and they stand behind him. Duncan’s search is relentless; he knows he is not the only one looking for Pam. Even with his responsibilities slipping, he puts it all on the line to find the only woman he has ever loved. In a race against time, Duncan fights to find Pam before her past catches up to her. The Warrior’s path is clear: Find the woman he loves before the past finds her first.
“Why don’t you go out front with them, and I’ll ride to the apartment with one of these guys,” Pam added with a nod toward the other Warriors. Pam did lean back at the look on Duncan’s face. His expression scared her more than his yelling.
“Over my dead body.” He didn’t yell, but his lowered tone of voice warned her she may have pushed a little too far.
“Damon…off with his head.” Sid broke the silence with his usual smartass comment. “I’ve got things to do, and I’m tired of waiting.”
“Fuck up, Sid,” Sid finished for Duncan. “You guys seriously need to come up with something new.”
“If anything happens to her, I will kill every single one of you.” Duncan grabbed Pam’s hand, ignoring everyone as he led her out of the room.
“I don’t think he meant you.” Jared put his hand on Jill’s shoulder. “Then again, if things go bad, I’d hide out for a while.” Jared tapped the front of Jill’s cap down over her eyes as he passed her.
A Fire Fairy Review
Duncan is the 3rd book in Teresa Gabelman's The Protectors Series.
Duncan has been portrayed as the most serious and most responsible among the VC Warriors in the previous books. That's because he's the leader of the VC Cincinnati Branch. He's also the strongest and the other warriors look up to him with respect.
Pam was originally portrayed as Nicole's bubbly, cheerful, and funny sidekick/best friend. But on the 2nd book her personality changed dramatically because of some traumatic horrors involving her psycho boyfriend.
In this 3rd installment, Duncan must find Pam to protect her and the unborn baby from her ex boyfriend. Can Pam ever forget everything that happened and move on to give herself and Duncan a shot on love and happiness? This book is a MUST READ for all paranormal romance and vampire romance readers.
One thing that I really love about The Protectors Series is it KEEPS GETTING BETTER. Duncan is darker than the previous books. Plotwise, Duncan is deeper and darker than the previous books. And that's what made this book better. It proved that the series isn't just about action and humor. Romance-wise, the couple, Duncan and Pam, have a more emotional foundation to their story. They have a very deep connection to each other and their love was more credible than the previous books' couples.
When I was reading this book I was really affected by Pam's nightmares and I was very furious at Kenny that I want to kill him myself. And because the hero is Duncan the book is more solemn than Damon's and Jared's. Good thing the cheerful gang is present to lighten the mood. Sid and Nicole are funnier than ever. They really cracked me up with their mock blackmails.
When I read Damon's book I thought it was excellent. When I read Jared's book, I thought it was one of the best and definitely better than Damon's. This time, Teresa Gabelman outdid herself and made this book much better than Jared's. I'm giving this 5 SOLID FAIRY WINGS! Definitely a must-read and worth your every cent and time.
Oops, before I forget, another warrior was introduced in this book. He's strong, he's hot, sexy, and he's a doctor! Slade is a really likeable addition to the warriors and I'm looking forward to reading his own book.
P.S. I really enjoyed the interview with Damon and Jared. Hope I can do another interview with the warriors and maybe with their mates. *wink*
RATING: 5 Fairy Wings!
