To hell and back . . . Though he has vampire, demon, and Viking blood rushing through his veins, Ivar Kjeidsen’s soul-crushing trip to hell broke him in ways he can barely fathom. One vow keeps the deadly immortal standing: To rescue the vampire brother who had sacrificed freedom for him. To do that, Ivar needs the help of a brilliant physicist with wary brown eyes, fierce brilliance, and skin that's way too soft.
Dr. Promise Williams understands the underpinnings of the universe but has never figured out the human beings inhabiting it. Her function is to think—and not feel—until she’s touched by a vampire who’s nowhere near human. The primal hunger in his eyes awakens feelings in her that defy calculation. As she shows him the way to step between worlds, he brands her with a pleasure that could last more than a lifetime . . .

Alpha’s Promise is the continuation of the Dark Protectors series. I have to say I am really loving where Rebecca Zanetti is taking this series. At first I was apprehensive but boy is she kicking it up a notch in the paranormal realms of romance. And to be honest I almost put this down at first because I wasn’t a fan for how this book began at all. The chemistry between our main pair here, seemed off to me and I wondered if I would feel the same but thankfully it turned out to be a superb read here and I was cheering them both on in the end.
Alpha’s Promise is a story that begins with a doctor, Dr. Promise Williams who is expertise is in the sciences and more specifically “physics” but now their enemy have targeted her and she is in danger. So Ivar, is to protect her from danger but at first he almost kidnaps her. And that doesn’t go to well for him despite his paranormal abilities. Promise is no wilting flower and stands on her own. But when its evident her life is in danger, she accepts the protection while trying to figure out the science of the problems at hand. As Promise becomes more immersed in the world of the “seven” and the dangers, Promise has to learn to balance out facts and logic with emotion as the bond between Promise and Ivar become full of passion and mating heat. But Ivar has another mission and it is to save a brother of theirs ….no matter the cost even if that means never seeing Promise again.
Alpha’s Promise was such a hilarious book because wow Ivar and Promise made such a unique couple and that is saying something for writing from this author because she definitely writes the original pairings. But I fell hard for this one here, and for many reasons. The first is the story of the brother lost in the other dimension. My HEART is breaking for what he is going through when him ending up there wasn’t his fault at all and somehow the seven haven’t been able to find a way to get him free. Especially when we see a hint of a romance in the future for him because he so deserves a HEA and I can’t wait to see it happen. Now for the main part of my love of this story…Ivar and Promise. Never a odd pairing if you ever saw one. Ivar, this big bad alpha beast of a hero and a heroine who is smart as all get out–like makes your head spin she is so smart and it turns Ivar on. LOL I truly found that so amusing. Whenever she got into her math mode of figuring out an equation to a problem —Ivar is like I wanna take her to the bedroom and make her forget the math hehe
I really found the plot of this story so fascinating and so many factors that are building for the series overall as well and I was so down with it and I just wanted much more. We also have a young girl who is meeting a boy in dreams who is the son of their enemy –I predict they will have a story and unify the two groups. Its interesting to see their relationship slowly form with each book and the building of their connection to each other. Poor kids with so much pressure on their shoulders.
Overall I found Alpha’s Promise to be a superb read that swept me away in this captivating thrilling world that only Rebecca Zanetti can captivate on ….stunning, chilling, and emotionally pivoting in relatable ways!
