Elisabeth Naughton’s Eternal Guardians series continues in Tempted the 3rd book.
I love the world that the author is building…..
The previous book, Entwined, ended with a bang in which Isadora, the spoiled and untouched princess of Argolea is kidnapped by witches.
She is rescued by Demetrius,
. The dark, dangerous and damaged Argonaut warrior, who has been hiding his love for her because he believes that the secret his heritage makes him unworthy of her love, even though he knows that ...more
Ms. Naughton has taken the Greek Argonaut myth, turned it on its head, and OWNED it! In TEMPTED, she includes all the elements of an extraordinary mythological tale: gods, goddesses, monsters, witches, and heroes saving the heroines! Just to name a few.
From the very beginning, I was hooked by the tough and cocky attitude of Demetrius. An act he has played for so long to distance himself from Isadora. He does everything he possibly can to keep that distance ...more
This is my favorite kind of story....
Tortured, sexy, scarred, hero.
Pure, good, strong, girl.
Demetrius. That's all I have to say. His name alone invokes so much feeling. He is in the same category of Zsadist (Lover Awakened) and Ripper (Unbeautifully).
Isa. She was a different person in the first two books. I grew to love her more and more as she overcame obstacles and became a stronger person. In this book, she is the perfect match for Demetrius, exactly what he needs, and ...more
I became a fan of Elisabeth Naughton after reading her Stolen series and I wasn't that bowled over by the Eternal Guardians but I am glad I never gave up and Tempted, the third in the series is her best effort where we finally see Isadora, the heir finally come onto her own. We have seen her weak, making deals with Hades(losing her soul) and Orpheus to learn magic and when the book begins her hand-maiden has betrayed her and cast a fertility spell on her for Atlanta, their enemy.
I got hooked on the Eternal Guardian’s series last year, so I was super excited at the chance to review this book. This is Isadora’s book, and I’ve been waiting (not-so) patiently to see how she handles this.
Isadora is a very timid, with a doormat personality...until lately. She is finally waking up and seeing what she wants. And I loved watching her grow. She began this book a ...more
After Isadora went missing with her hand maiden right before her binding ceremony to Zander, the guardians began looking for her. Demetrius was able to find her and rescue her from his mother, bu ...more
Recommendation : If you enjoyed Zsadist's story from BDB then give this one a try. It has the same sort of feel to it. If you liked the first two books of the Eternal Guardians series then you will like this as well.
"Demetrius who we are is not a result of where we come from. It's the combination of what we do and how we live that determines who we are."
We dive head first into Isadora's wedding day. That's right I believe this was man number 3 that she ha ...more
Orpheus is up next, and I can't wait!!
Descended from Jason and the witch Medea, Demetrius is the darkest and most secretive of the Argonauts. As a result of his secrets, Demetrius has built barriers between himself and others, especially Isadora, heiress to the throne of Argolea and his soul mate. But now circumstances have thrown Demetrius and Isadora together and they will have to overcome their differences if they are to survive the perils to come.
After a difficult start, this series is finally making strides and l ...more
This series is about the seven guardians. They are the descendants of the original seven Argonauts who journeyed with Jason to find the golden fleece. The Argonauts were favored by the Greek Gods and granted a home called Argolea. They protect their kingdom and the world of the humans from daimons, who are lead by Atalanta. She was an Argonaut not favored by the Gods (because she was female) so she made a deal with Hades for immortality.
The series involves th ...more
First off, I would like to say what a wonderful delight trio ...more
Goodness can I have my own Demetrius?
This book was effing fantastic! I loved the plot, the main and secondary characters, the side stories, the romance, the combat scenes and the gore. Just amazing, really.
Whilst I was reading, I was surprise Isadora has a lot of admirers. Especially the guys, regardless either they're good or evil. I counted five who wish for her and of course, Demetrius won her heart. And my heart broke for one of them too. I hope what he expected was the false one and ...more
If you loved the bdb books you will love these.
Given this 5 stars as characther development, angst, romance, sex, adventure hot argonauts that are are so brooding at times but so hot.
The heroines are strong and in this book isadora comes to life so strong and sensual too especially around her man.
Her hero try's to keep his distance, torments himse ...more
Third book in the “Eternal Guardian” series.
First I wanted to say how addicting these books are. Elisabeth’s writing, depth of story, surreal characters claimed me by the first page of Marked, that never waned one iota with Marked, Entwined, and Tempted. I was instantly swept away.
Now I was a little leery going in Tempted only because a friend was not happy with Demetrius’s attitude. She did not think he redeemed himself enough, did not grovel enough. Yes ...more
Ive always loved the tortured hero type. Now we all know why demetrius is the way he is with Isa. Isa was just perfect for demetrius! Ive loved how from being timid she became the confident and strong princess who fought for demetrius. She was the perfec ...more
A clever continuation of the Greek myths with fresh, inventive characters... A passion-filled read. (RT Book Reviews 20110819)
"Naturalistic, snappy dialogue, endlessly twisting plots within plots, a cast of complex and eminently likeable characters, and a romance as hot as it is complicated make this an entertaining and smoldering read." Starred Review (Publiishers Weekly 20110824)
Naughton weaved a fantastic world in TEMPTED... (The Romance Reviews 20110830)
Tons and tons of sexual hea
However, I have to say that the ending is giving me some hope about things changing for the better. Let's see what Ms Naughton has in store for us in the upcoming books.
I loved this book. While I expected the part about Nick, I wasn't expecting everything that came out about Atalanta. It made this book that much better though because it wasn't all just romance, it was solving part of the puzzle that is this world.
I loved the chemistry. It jumped off the page. In my opinion, much more so than Ms. ...more
