Release Blitz Celebration: Blind Faith by Rebecca Zanetti (Q&A + Giveaway)

So I was lucky enough to snag a few minutes of author Rebecca Zanetti’s time again for a quick Q&A to celebrate the print release of Blind Faith, the third book in the fantastic (If I do say so myself) Sin Brothers series! If you haven’t read this series then you’re in luck because one lucky person will win the following prize (You lucky duck you): all three books in the series, plus an ARC of TOTAL SURRENDER, a “Who Shot Jory Dean?” T-shirt and a Blind Faith dog tag.

About Rebecca:
New York Times bestselling author Rebecca Zanetti has worked as an art curator, Senate aide, lawyer, college professor, and a hearing examiner - only to culminate it all in stories about Alpha males and the women who claim them. She is a member of RWA, has won awards for her works throughout the industry, and has a journalism degree with a poly sci emphasis from Pepperdine University as well as a Juris Doctorate from the University of Idaho.

Growing up amid the glorious backdrops and winter wonderlands of the Pacific Northwest has given Rebecca fantastic scenery and adventures to weave into her stories. She resides in the wild north with her husband, children, and extended family who inspire her every day-or at the very least give her plenty of characters to write about.

Matt's book!
Adria: Hi Rebecca! Thank you for taking the time to answer a few questions for me again! I’m such a big fan of this series and was so happy to be asked to participate today too! I’ve read (and reviewed) Blind Faith myself and I have to say that you certainly know how to top yourself and keep a series going strong! I want to say that Blind Faith is my favorite book in the series but since it’s so close to the release of Total Surrender I’ll have to hold off on making an official decision. I will say though, that Matt is STILL my favorite brother but I have yet to find my own version of him so the search continues.

Rebecca: Hi Adria! Thanks so much for having me here today and for the nice words about the series. I think Matt’s pretty amazing, too. I’m sure you’ll find your Matt out there.

Adria: If you had to introduce your Sin Brothers series, to a room full of potential readers, what would you say to get them to pick up Blind Faith?

Rebecca: The Sin Brothers is a series about a band of half-brothers genetically enhanced in test tubes and raised as soldiers. They learned early on that family is all that matters, and they fought for each other until finally gaining freedom from their creators. Now, all bets are off, they’re heading back to take out the people who created them…while finding love on the way.

Blind Faith begins with the hero having to hunt down the woman who’d broken his heart years ago in order to save his brothers from the kill chips embedded near their spines. He finds her, and while there’s definitely tension, he instantly feels the protectiveness toward her that he had when they were together.

Adria: What makes Nate and Audrey such a good couple and what makes their story so important to the entire series?

Nate and Audrey have painful childhoods in common, and they also were each other’s first love, so it’s fun seeing them find their way back to each other. Nate has always chosen family, and Audrey needs to decide who exactly is family to make her choice. What I liked about these two was that even though they’d hurt each other years ago, neither of them ever acted cruel to each other, even in the present. Plus, the sexual tension between these two was over the top.

Adria: Part of the editing process is that unfortunately scenes get cut or have to be re-written. Is there a scene from the Blind Faith you wish had been left in? If there is, can you share it with us?

This is such a fun question, and I wish I had a scene that had been cut! To be honest, I usually end up adding scenes after my first draft and very rarely delete one. But I did write an extra scene spotlighting Nate and Audrey’s first disastrous Valentine’s Day when they first dated…check my website or my FB page for when it goes live.

Adria: If you had to pick a theme song for Nate and Audrey, what song would you pick and why?

Rebecca: I’d have to say I’d Come For You by Nickelback. There’s something about the song that promises a future and total dedication, and I think Nate and Audrey have that.

Adria: The last time we chatted I asked if Total Surrender would be the last book in the Sin Brothers series and you said you were going to draft up a proposal for three more books in the series… Any official news on that front?

Rebecca: We’re still in the proposal process, but I’m really excited about it. I’ll keep you updated!

Adria: Aside from being the genius behind Blind Faith, you are also the author of two other series as well, just how the heck do you not only find time to write them, but keep them all straight? I can’t even keep my dogs’ food portions straight (I need a chart and different colored bowls)!

You know what really helps? Having playlists for every book. For some reason, if I put the playlist on for a certain book, I’m instantly back in that world. Other than that, I think I just get lost in books, so it’s easy to keep track once I’m there.

Adria: Have you ever been out and about in your everyday life and witnessed something so interesting/funny/intense that you just had to put it in one of your books?

I have two sisters and a couple of really good friends, and they’re all nuts. So they give me great ideas all the time. J

Adria: Once again, thank you so much Rebecca for answering my questions and in general being an amazing author. The Sin Brothers series is hands down one of my favorites ever and they sure do give me a nice distraction from the household chores!

Thanks so much for having me here today, and have a wonderful week!

     “Let’s dance.” He turned her toward the dance floor.

    She balked. “No.” God. She couldn’t dance with him, couldn’t be touched by him.

     “Yes.” His hold slid down to the back of her elbow, and he ushered her toward where the orchestra was playing “I Will Wait for You” by Michel Legrand. The warmth in Nate’s touch flared her nerves to life in an erotic need she’d worked hard to overcome.


     “Shhh.” He tightened his hold and drew her into an impressive erection.

    She gasped, her face heating, her sex convulsing. Blinking, she glanced up in confusion to see if he was as affected as she was and stilled at the look in his eyes.

    Furious. The man was truly furious. Even with the contacts masking his eyes, his anger shone bright.

    She tried to step back and didn’t move. Yeah, she knew she’d hurt him when she’d ended their relationship, but after nearly five years, he shouldn’t still be so mad. He’d had freedom for five years, which was a hell of a lot better than she’d had. She’d had pain and fear and uncertainty. She blinked. “What is wrong with you?”

    His impossibly hard jaw somehow hardened even more. “Oh, we’ll discuss that shortly.” Threat lived strongly in the calm words. “For now, we’re going to finish this dance. Then you’ll take the north exit and meet me in my car so we can talk.”

     “If I don’t?” she asked quietly, wings fluttering through her abdomen.

    His hold tightened imperceptibly. “I know where you live, I know your daily routine in working for Senator Nash, and I know where you go when you need time alone. You can’t hide, you can’t outrun me—and you know it.”

    The hairs on the back of her neck rose. “How long have you been watching me?” More importantly, why hadn’t she noticed?

     “A week. Long enough to know the two apes toward the doorway are following you, too. What’s up with that?” His hold tightened just enough to show his strength.

    She shrugged. “They haven’t made a move, so I’m not worrying about it.” Not true, and by the narrowing of Nate’s eyes, he could still smell a lie a mile away. “The commander is having me followed.”

    Nate’s jaw clenched. “Why?”

     “Dunno.” They didn’t have time to discuss it. “You should go now.”

     “No.” He spun her, easily controlling their movements.

    Her leg hitched, and she stumbled against him.

    He frowned. “What’s wrong?”

     “Nothing.” None of his damn business, that was. “What do you want to talk about?”

    His gaze narrowed, and he spun her again. She tripped again. Her damn leg didn’t move that way. She glanced toward the doorway and the two soldiers watching her. They’d straightened to alert stances. Damn it.

     “What’s wrong with your leg?” Nate asked, brows furrowing.

    Oh, they were so not going into her injuries on the dance floor. “You almost sound like you care.” She threw his words back at him, gratified when his nostrils flared in irritation.

    His gaze probed deep, wandering down her neck. He blinked several times, his chest moving with a harsh intake of breath. “I like your dress,” he rumbled, his voice a low whisper.

    With his tight hold, she had no doubt the tops of her breasts were visible. “Nathan, don’t—”

     “Don’t what?” His gaze rose to her lips. A light of a different sort filtered through his angry eyes. She knew that look. Her body heated and her thighs softened. His erection jumped against her, and she bit down a groan.

     “One kiss, Audrey.”

    Her eyes widened to let in more light. “No,” she breathed. One of his hands held hers, the other pressed against her back. Thank goodness. He couldn’t grab her and kiss her, no matter how appealing the thought. “Bad idea.”

     “I know.” Nate didn’t need hands. His lips met hers so quickly, she never saw him move.

    His mouth covered hers with no hesitancy, no question—as if he had every right to go deep. His tongue was savage and demanding, holding nothing back and accepting no evasion. He tasted of loneliness, anger, and lust. Hard, needy, demanding lust.

    The men at the door were watching.

    But her body didn’t care—instantly igniting instead of pushing away. Her heart thundered in her ears, and she fell into his heat, uncaring of whether or not he caught her. He wrapped around her, his unyielding body holding her upright. He caressed her with his tongue, and she met him thrust for thrust, fierce pleasure lighting her on fire.

    She forgot where they were, who they were, everything but the desperate need he created.

    He broke the kiss, blatant male hunger crossing his face. His breath panted out even as he moved them in tune with the music.

    She softened against him, allowing him to lead so she didn’t collapse. Her mind whirled, and she shook her head to regain reality. “Nathan, what do you want?” The question emerged as a breathless plea she couldn’t mask.

    That quickly, all hints of desire slid from his face. His chin hardened. “Want? I want to know what happened to the child you were carrying five years ago when you ripped out my heart. Where’s my baby, Audrey?”
