I was one of the lucky ones to get a copy of this book from the author and I will be posting an honest review. I love Mrs. Gableman’s writing and this book was one that caught me up so much, I read it in one night and refused to be interrupted while reading it. It grasped ahold of me and wouldn’t let me go. I found myself smiling, laughing, and even choked up while reading it. This is one of those stories you want to read and will find yourself asking when the next book will be out.

`Jared', by Teresa Gableman, is a paranormal treat. Picking up where book one `Damon' finished, it was impossible not to be swept along with the wonderful fast-paced action of the delectable vampire warriors and the new female protagonist Tessa. This action was almost instant and rarely slowed with the exception of well positioned `calm before the storm' moments and the wonderful hot and tender scenes. And what wonderful, delicious scenes they were!

What I so thoroughly enjoyed about `Jared', was...more
4.5 stars!

I really enjoyed this book! Talk about a group of sexy vampire warriors! This book had one of the strongest heroines. Sometimes an author can write a heroine who tries to be strong/tough but it when you read about her it is obvious that she is fake. With Tessa, you actually get to experience an honest person. She has struggled to keep her family together after the loss of her mother and her father's repeated abuse. Her strength and love for not only her father and grandfather, but the...more

I am such a HUGE HUGE HUGE fan of Teresa Gabelman and this series!! I could just hug her for writing Jared!!! lol I have LOVED LOVED LOVED Jared from the start and have been not so patiently waiting for his book. I was so happy that his character was the same as she wrote him in Damon. Teresa didn't stray from the core of his character but added to him and I fell in love with his character even more. I hate when secondary characters get their own books and then the author writes them totally dif...more
Jared is fun, sexy, emotional, action packed with the yummiest Alpha Males Heroes and the hottest kick butt Heroines. Good amount of surprises with some twist and turns that had me on the edge of my seat and never seen them coming.

Fell head over heals for Jared when he was first introduced in Damon (The Protectors #1). His character was sweet, fun and a smart mouth. Huge Thank You to Teresa Gabelman for keeping Jared’s personality just the way he was in Damon and for giving everything I love ab...more

Tessa Pride is trying to help and protect her brother Adam who was turned into a half-breed. She totally takes Jared by surprise when she breaks into the VC interrogation room, and he is immediately attracted to her.

Jared is everything you want in a warrior. He is smart, brave, and sexy as hell. He knows when to be serious, but he also has a playful s...more

Tess has a lot going on in her life,Tess and her Brother Adam meet the Warrior Jared.

Tessa Pride's brother, Adam, is turned into a half-breed human/vampire against his will. In order to get some answers, Tessa and Adam break into the Vampire Council Warriors' compound, chain up Warrior Jared Kincaid, and kidnap his prisoner. Jared can't allow his humiliation to stand, and so he goes after Tessa. Besides, he's drawn to her like he's never been drawn to another woman.

Tessa's caught by Jared, in more ways than one. She knows she should guard her heart, but she can't help but b...more

Jared is one Alpha Male that has it all! He’s sexy as hell, funny, and even emotional. Yep ladies and gents – he’s the full package, especially when you add that he can kick ass like nobody’s business! Now then, I did not read Damon, the first book in the series…. YET! …. So part of this had me a little confused, but not a great deal at all!

First off, I absolutely loved that Tessa was a strong heroine. She was as kickass as Jared was and I loved that about her. From the start of the book you can...more

My introduction into Ms Gabelman's world of the VC Warriors was not with a whisper but with a shout and the second installment in this series is EVEN BETTER!!!! In the first book I truly had a "fictional character crush" on Jared now it is full on "LOVE"! Of course he is all the things we all look for in our vampire heroes. He is alpha to the core, strong, courageous, confident, smoking hot, sexy as sin, but Jared is also quite the character. He is funny, a practical joker, and a real pain in th...more

Jared's story was awesome!! I swooned over him through the entire book. Which I couldn't put down, and read till I was finished, around 3am. lol. I like the twist of events in the second installment of the series, introducuing half-breeds into it. I didn't see it coming and it definitely made the story much more interesting.
This story is an amazing follow up in the series. Jared & Tessa were fun to read and kept me turning the pages. I have to say, the villian is written so well, that I act...more
Jared Kincaid has had not problem taunting Damon about his new mate, he relishes in it. So he might be able to blame just a little bit of his being he being caught off guard by a half-breed vampire and a firecracker of a woman on that, however he plans to use every tool out there to discover who they are.

Tessa Pride will do anything to help her brother, kidnapping someone is a bit beyond the realm of comfortable perimeters, but it is a means to an end. However when the vampire they detained show...more
Jared pretty much starts off where Damon left off but with a lot more action.

We met Jared in book 1 - he is a part of the Vampire Warriors sent to train humans. Jared isn’t easily surprised or shocked so when Tessa comes rolling in to the compound, he can’t help but be intrigued by her She will stop at nothing to find her brother who has been turned into a half-breed.

Jared and Tessa fight a tough battle to find out who is behind the half-breeds. The plot is interesting and keeps you on your toe...more

When I opened our email and realized that Teresa sent us the second book of her Protectors series I was so excited I did a little happy dance....

I have been waiting for this moment for months and months....patiently waiting, hoping and growing more and more excited.

As many of you are aware I am a sucker for romance. Especially vampire romance. Something that society views as scary and evil can't have emotions right? Oh you couldn't be more wrong! We...more

Disclaimer: I was given a beta copy in exchange for an honest review.

Jared's a vampire. Not just any vampire: he's a Warrior, and his job is to protect other vampires and humans alike. He's running an interrogation for the Council when he finds himself interrupted and subsequently silver-chained by two intruders, a half-breed and a female human, for God's sake! The duo take Jared's prisoner with them, and he must track them down to get the guy back, and perhaps get a little payback for being so...more

10*s. I recieved an eARC copy of this book directly from the author in return for an honest review.
I would like to start by saying that I absolutely fell in love with Book 1 Damon, but I believe book 2 Jared is even better!!! My taste buds were tantilized, my heart wept, and my soul belongs to Jared!! I love the action, suspence, sex, love, betrayal, and the many wicked twists and turns that happened throughout this book. The same amazing charaters that I fell in love with are in this amazing bo...more

This is the second in the " The Protectors " series and let just say that this book is maybe even hotter than " Damon" book. This book picks up right where Damon finished off at. This book is a wonderful fast pace action with all kinds of sizzling hot vampire warriors. This book a has a whole new level of what you would call a emotional roller coaster of emotions. This book had me on the edge of my seat and biting my nail all the way to the end. I could not put this book down and when I did the...more

Looking for an Alpha Male series with a side of Vamp??? This is the series for you. As this is just book 2, I am completely in love with the VC Warriors.

Tessa Pride, bartender, sister to a half breed (half human/half vampire) Adam have been taking care of each other since their mother was killed in a car accident caused by their father. Her alcoholic father beats her making her unable to trust easily. After their father finally just leaves she thinks things will get better but after her brother...more

As the second book in this series I have to say that the writing and the story just got hotter! Lord I love me a bad boy attitude and looks. It makes my heart stop and reading the description of Jared my heart stopped beating holy hell!

We read about Damon and Nicole's fight to save the children and now we have Jared who is also a vampire warrior who will do anything to save his people and humans. There isn't much that surprises Jared but when a red hair spit fire breaks into the home of the vam...more

My Rating: 3.5 out of 5 Stars

ANOTHER human-vampire romance? Yet, upon reading the blurbs for these two books of The Protectors, I was intrigued. There were some of the same threads from other series - and I've read/seen quite a lot - but a few twists that Teresa Gabelman added to make it her own.

These stories could be of just humans as well. Children being abu...more

After reading the second book of Teresa Gabelman's 'The Protectors' series, I've fallen completely in love with yet another paranormal romance series.

The only way a vampire can tell their one true mate is if they can't read their minds. But Vampire Warrior, Jared Kincaid, has never set any faith in the whole one mate for one man belief like the others of his kind.

So when Tessa Pride whirls into his life and gets the jump on him with her sassy attitude and cute insults, he doesn't really care if...more

Jared (The Protectors #2) by Teresa Gabelman


Jared & Tessa

Have you ever wanted to embrace and then slaughter a character at the same time. Well, for me that would be Jared and Tessa. Holy stubbornness! Since they both seem to have their heads up their asses, you'd think two negatives would make a positive, but it's going to take more than math to get these two together! It's definitely a great continuation of The Protectors series! I can't...more

Just when I thought Damon is the shit, it just got better! This book exceeded my expectations. A lot!

I absolutely love Jared! I was so happy I felt like doing a fairy dance after reading this book. It was just great!

Jared you just became my new book boyfriend!

Just so you know, my smile reaches my ears while typing this. I just can't stop smiling when I think of Jared. Lol!

The warriors are back in the 2nd book of the series. Still funny and adorable as ever. With new characters to love. And as us...more
This series of books have been recommended to me, and im soooo pleased I have read them. they have everything I want in a book, and so much more.

I started reading this book and I just couldn't put it down.There is a great story line, so many twist and turns. the romance, that is a key part of the book doesn't over shadow the mystery and the plot.

there are really great characters, which you get to see through all of the books, so when one book finishes you still get to see how there getting on in...more
*This is a joint review of books 1 & 2 (Damon & Jared)*

I am totally loving the VC (Vampire Council) Warriors. So far I have only read the first 2 books in the series but will definitely be reading the whole series. I loved the characters and the story was engaging. Both books hooked me from the very beginning of the book. I actually read them back to back in one day.

The characters (especially the warriors) are just awesome. Their fierce, protective, sweet, comforting, territorial, hilari...more

We pick up right where we left off with Damon. Plenty of on the edge of the seat action, endearing love, and who doesn't want hot, sexy, alpha vampires to be involved? We get to know Jared quite a bit more, as well as some new characters are introduced.

Jared is a sexy, light-hearted vampire that has a pretty funny sense of humor, but when he's in warrior mode, watch out. Protective of his family, the children involved, and one smart mouthed redhead. How Jared & Tessa meet is quite funny, the...more

I received this book by the Author for an honest review.

I enjoyed Damon so much I could not wait to read more about Jared. I thought for sure I knew who his love interest was going to be. WOW was I total wrong and so glad I was wrong because Tessa is such a great fit for Damon.

Tessa and her brother, a half-breed, broke in and kidnapped the very person Jared was interrogating. She even chained him to a chair got all up in his face about her brother. I love a tough woman that can hold her own an...more
