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
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

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

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

After breaking into the VC Warriors Compound, Tessa Pride soon finds herself joining forces with the Warrior Jared Kincaid in the war that is brewing between Warriors and half-breeds in this thrilling paranormal romance. The author spices things up in this very enjoyable and entertaining story with some surprising twist that keeps everyone guessing and I have to say that this series has become a definitely have to have set of books.

Yes, I am really liking these series!

The book pics up right where Damon's book left off.
Tessa and her brother Adam were trying to understand how to help the half-breeds and their only solution was to kidnap and interrogate Chad.
They surprised all the warriors with their actions and on in particular - Jared.

Jared and the warriors decide to help Tessa and the half-breeds whey they uncover a whole operation set on creating half-breed and woman breeders.

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

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

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 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

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

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

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

Well this one didn’t start off real great for me. I didn’t like Tessa or her attitude right off the bat, sadly I was pretty sure my dislike of her would remain to the end and while she got better it was just a little too late after her mouthy stupid behavior at the beginning. She was okay but she was so busy being a smart ass and even a bitch so often that I just didn’t care for her, had she been the way she was at the end in the beginning I would have liked her much better.

After reading book one in this awesome series, I couldn't wait to start this next book. Each character is equally loveable, they all have a body to die for, and protect each other with their lives. To be able to read each story about these characters I have become to love is just epic. Each book bringing a new story with all the qualities I found immensely appealing from the very start.

Jared Kincaid is not someone you want to mess with. I thought Damon was bad in a incredibly good way of course

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.

I am completely in love with this series now. I did enjoy the first book but had some difficulty. But I breezed thru Jared and Tessa book in a day. I REALLY love and adore Tessa. what's more to me is the fact she is more of an everyday female then many of the women I read about. She is not stick thin and is very self conscious of herself. which so many of us can relate to. What's more is going thru the roller coaster ride of Jared and Tessa relationship and seeing how both fall for the other. I ...more
