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!
"One of the best books in this series!!!"
Both the print and audio were amazing.
Zane coming to terms with his past.
He brings the story to life
One of the best books in this series. I love Zane!!!
"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.
I have been to see Dachau concentration camp twice when I lived in Germany. Totally shocking and utterly sad.
"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.
"Best in the series!"
Unfortunately, the review requires 15 words minimum; I can sum it up in 2: historically significant.
Victory over adversity!
That's a hard one!
Zane's recollection of the Nazi camps
"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.
