Synopsis by Goodreads:
Janie Kayrs has known Zane almost her whole life. He was her friend in the dream world. She trusted him. But that was before he kidnapped her, spiriting her away to an isolated cabin to learn what her dreams never told her. Like how dangerous he looks. How he got on the wrong side of the negotiating table. And how much sexier he is in real life. . .

Zane is a battle-hardened warrior, used to command and solitude. But Janie has drawn him from the minute they met. His need for her could destroy everything he's worked for, but the risk is too sweet not to take it. They call her the Chosen One. But when it comes down to the questions of peace or war, life or death, safety or passion, it will be Janie who makes the choice. . .

Love is about to start conquering. . .

What I love most about Zane and Janie was his protectiveness and her feistiness. Left for some fun banter.
Oh, hell no. Zane grasped both her arms and set her behind him. Then he held up a finger to Talen Kayrs. "Give me a minute." Turning his back on one of the most dangerous vampires in history, he glared down at her. "Never, and I mean fucking never, get between me and somebody who wants to hit me. Got it?"
Blue flashed hard and pissed in her gorgeous eyes. "Right now I want to hit you."

Spoil Free Review
I have loved Janie and Zane in their dreamworld since they first met. For them to have their own story outside of the dreamworld was awesome. Loved that readers did not have to wait a zillon books before they got their own  story. Rebecca Zanetti did a great job at gradually building these characters friendship with teasesrs in each book and did something I have yet to see.  In one book it actually jumped ahead a few years so they would be in their 20's. Brilliant so readers would not have to wait forever since they were kids.
Marked was all kinds of amazing with many "I did not see that coming moments" and "edge of my seat moments".  I fell harder for Zane. He will do anything to protect Janie and his loved ones. What made his character feel so real is that deep inside he is afraid of failing and loosing his loved ones. Zane and Janie were perfect for eachother. He is over protective of her but she can hold her own. After all she has been raised by her over protective dad and uncles. Loved that she was feisty and had a smartmouth. The banter between her and Zane left for some giggle moments.
Marked was unpredictable with suprises and twists that I could not swipe my kindle fast enough.
