“Impressive . . . Zanetti’s action sequences are sharp and dynamic.”
—The New York Times Book Review
 
Too quiet. A talented hacker who got caught, Brigid Banaghan is now forced to work with a secret Deep Ops unit. But she won’t reveal any more to these renegade Feds than she has to. Especially not to Raider Tanaka, her control freak of a bodyguard and handler. It’s enough that his body is tensed for action and his heated gaze is always on her . . .
 
Too sharp. Raider knows there’s more to his new assignment than he’s been told. Why send a deadly agent of his experience to guard a computer genius—even a gorgeous, unpredictable, undisciplined one? But when Brigid’s estranged father is named in an investigation into Boston’s organized crime, Raider’s mind switches onto high alert, just like his senses . . .
 
Too close. To clear her father’s name, Brigid needs Raider’s help. The Unit’s idea that she bring a straight-laced Fed in as her “fiancé” won’t fly, though—not unless Raider can release his inner bad boy and become the rebel Brigid can’t resist . . .

Praise For Fallen (Deep Ops #2)

Praise for Rebecca Zanetti's Deep Ops Series:

“Complex but never convoluted…there’s thankfully little hemming and hawing about real feelings or propriety, and much more thoughtful grappling with thornier issues…The couple must also negotiate the power dynamics in their relationship — sexually, professionally and physically. Maybe most impressive, though, is the comedy Zanetti weaves through the suspense…for Brigid and Raider as a couple, humor surfaces in even their tensest moments, giving the high-stakes drama humanity and warmth. Zanetti’s action sequences are sharp and dynamic.”
The New York Times Book Review on FALLEN

“Simon Cowell used to tell singers he loved on “American Idol” that they could “sing the phone book” to him and he’d be happy. I feel the same way about Rebecca Zanetti—she could regale me with a trip to the grocery store and I’m sure it would be spectacular… All the hallmarks of a Zanetti book (which cause a Pavlovian response in me any time I see her books on the shelves) are present: richly developed characters, robust plots, exciting suspense and hot, sexy times. She is, quite simply, one of my favorite authors and the world is all the better for having her in it.”
Bookpage on FALLEN

“The blend of memorable personalities found on the Deep Ops team, combined with a slowly teased-out bigger story arc, makes for a deliciously inviting and immersive story.”
Publishers Weekly on FALLEN

“Zanetti successfully balances the romance with the escalating mystery of why a U.S. senator is mixed up with a young Irish mobster…Brigid and Raider's love affair is the star of this carefully constructed and well-paced work of romantic suspense. The central romance is enhanced by a pleasingly tangled suspense plot.”
Kirkus Reviews on FALLEN

“The first installment in Zanetti’s new, steamy romantic-suspense series, Deep Ops, starts with a bang, and quirky secondary characters will make readers long for the next tale. Fans of J. D. Robb and Karen Robards will love Zanetti's series start.”
Booklist on HIDDEN
 
“The suspense is chilling and the romance is hot in Rebecca Zanetti’s Hidden…The ticking clock plot stretches the nerves, but Zanetti balances this with touches of humor – a dog in high heels! – and the burgeoning bond between lovers in her engrossing, entertaining read.”
Bookpage on HIDDEN

“Zanetti’s…romantic thriller explodes with action, spice and humor….Beautifully developed characters pair well with an enticingly suspenseful story to create just enough tension to capture readers without becoming overwhelming.”
Publishers Weekly on HIDDEN

“Zanetti’s chilling romantic suspense novels keep me on edge until I’ve turned the last page, and Hidden, the first book in her new Deep Ops series, continues that winning streak… Sizzling, dark, and sometimes creepy, this is a perfect read as the nights get longer and colder.” 
The Amazon Book Review 
on HIDDEN
 
“Superb, with wonderful main characters and quirky secondary characters, compelling and intense dialogue.”
Harlequin Junkie, Recommended Read for HIDDEN
