Marked (Eternal Guardians #1)
THERON—Dark haired, duty bound and deceptively deadly. He’s the leader of the Argonauts, an elite group of guardians that defends the immortal realm from threats of the Underworld.
From the moment he walked into the club, Casey knew this guy was different. Men like that just didn’t exist in real life—silky shoulder-length hair, chest impossibly broad, and a predatory mann...more
Theron, an Argonaut guardian, is charged with finding Casey and bringing her back to his King. The belief is Casey's life will be used to spare the life of the future Queen who is dying. However, along...more
Theron is a descendant of Hercules, not immortal but long-lived...about 500-700 years or so. He bumps into Casey in a strip club. Literally. He bumps her while she's serving some jerk frat-boys drinks. She feels a tingly feeling, he looks at h...more
On the plus - very well written, entertaining concept, interesting cast of characters, a little rough around the edges where it needs to be, and lots of agendas. I felt Ms. Naughton used greek mythology as a foundation wisely. She did not get too dee...more
Naughton channels a smattering of Sherrilyn Kenyon and Rick Riordan in her debut new Eternal Guardian series Marked which brings Greek and Roman mythology to the fore as an eternal guardian Theron must struggle with the sacrifice that will be needed to save his kingdom. But the sacrifice could well be his intended mate.
Never has an Argonaut been put to the test as Theron has. Hera has marked his soul mate as Acacia Simopolous, who is half human and half-Argoleon. She doesn’t even know...more
And, as my status indicates, I also was getting very tired of the lead up to these two getting together- and then having it delayed once again. Now dont get me wrong- I love sexual tension and would much rather have the H/h not get it on til the end if, and this is a big if, the author gives you some e...more
So, based on my rating of this book and when I started and finished it, you can assume that:
a. I really, really liked it.
b. I read it rather quickly (or more like: I couldn't put it down until it was finished).
c. My kids had cereal for dinner last night because I was too busy reading this book.
Also, for me, a book totally rocks my world when I can clearly see it play out in my mind's eye as I r...more
I like story parts but get really bored with the sex parts and stop reading. Maybe it's cause I'm gay and her leaking vagina grosses me out or maybe the sex is just lame. But it bores me. The sexual tension is good but when they start doing sex it always seems too wordy and takes too long to be interesting.
Ohhh My Fucking God! I finsihed!!
Months later and I'm done. There was so much wrong with this book I won't even go into deta...more
"I'll always find you, Acacia. That is a promise." Theron, as he prepares to fight daemons in order to save Acacia.
This was a fun and interesting read. I really enjoyed the story building and the different take on Greek Mythology. Readers who enjoy heros and Greek mythology will like this novel.
I really enjoyed the world building. It felt realistic and well thought out.
Theron and Acacia are a great duo. And this is a great beginnig to the Eternal Gaurdia...more
The storyline was boring. I've only made it roughly 30% through, and it fee...more
Elisabeth Naughton has drawn on things were have read or touched on at some stage in our life, and built a world where Argonauts, Daemons, Gods and other realms really do exist. Marked is full of adventure, power plays, deceit and sizzling romance to keep their readers entertained.
Join Theron, while he discover...more

I'm glad I was wrong. I think the writer's style does need a bit of work, but her writing was strong enough that she didn't bore me to tears. The plot was well worked and whi...more
Obwohl die Kurzbeschreibung sich anhört wie so viele andere, war ich irgendwie sehr gespannt auf dieses Buch. Vor allem als ich dann herausfand das die griechische Mythologie eine große Rolle in der Geschichte spielt. Casey ahnt nichts davon das sie eigentlich kein normaler Mensch ist und an Dämonen und Götter glaubt sie natürlich auch nicht. Nur was waren das dann für Kreaturen...more

Casey (a Human) is just trying to find her place in the world, after her grandmother died and she is alone. She works two jobs to attempt to keep her grandmothers book stop afloat now which she feels is her only real connection to the world, to something. Theron is a descendant of H...more

Theron is an Argonaut - their leader, in fact. The Argonauts are a group of warriors and guardians of the people of Argolea, a kingdom created by Zeus in a dimension separate from ours for the descendants of the original Argonauts, seven demigods who sailed with Jason on the quest for the Golden Fleece.
For almost two hundred years Theron has been a loyal warrior for crown and country, fighting the eternal fight against the daemons who continue to threaten the Argoleans when they...more
Theron is the leader of the Argonauts. He has been sent on a mission to find and destroy the marked one. Theron’s people relay on Theron completing his mission.
Casey knew from the first moment she laid eyes on Theron that he was different. She fells a connection with him. Theron and Casey get closer, which makes things harder when Theron learns that Casey is the one he is after...more
Both of them were well written characters, there were realistic and not over the top.
I liked the fact that their romance develops throughout the book, rather than the two of them professing their love right in the first two chapters.
I likes Casey, like I already mentioned she is down to earth, hard working, fun person and not a push...more
