Enraptured is a dark, sexy and gripping read that will leave you addicted to these Eternal Guardians if you weren’t already!

Orpheus is now one of the Eternal Guardians, at least according to the marks on his arms he is.

When a Siren named Skyla gets in Orpheus’ way though the game drastically changes. Sent by Zeus to steal an artifa
3.5 Stars

The son of an Argonaut father and a Medean mother with a Daemon alter-ego to boot, Orpheus has always been the black sheep of the family. This all changes when his brother, Gryphon’s, soul is sent to Tartarus and Orpheus swears to rescue his sibling from the underworld with the aid of the Orb of Kronos. Unfortunately, other forces are determined to locate the Orb for themselves and Orpheus will have to deal with powerful Gods, vengeful enemies and a beautiful Siren with a myst

Just great.

It started out really slow at first and I had a hard time to grasp with the story, at the point I was worried this book might not be my favourite in the series. Well, I was wrong and I'm glad I enjoyed it immensely.

Skyla would be on top of my favourite heroine in this series. She's an assassin, a fighter, and feisty. Yet have a loving and tender heart. Definitely my kind of girl. There's a scene involving her that tugged my heart I was close to cry and curse oh shit is this go

Well, I didn't enjoy this one as much as I did the previous two but it was still enjoyable. It took a bit of time for me to get into the story but once it started to pick up I was anxious to finish it.

The ending was quite emotional.

Unfortunately, the library does not have the next one in an e-book so I have to wait for the paperback to arrive at my location to read the next one. :( Poor Gryphon. He was such a fun loving character and I hate that his character changed. I just hope he can somehow

I’ve kind of always liked Orpheus, and when I found out his story was next, I was really excited! He’s a half daemon/half Argonaut with a witchy twist. This book was much darker than I expected, but in a good way.

If you remember, Orpheus’ brother Gryphon was killed, sort of. A warlock stole his soul and sent it to Tartarus while running amok with his body. This meant the Argonaut markings showed up on Orpheus’s arms. This was unacceptable. Orpheus’ goa

Hell yeah! A spellbinding and wickedly sexy thrill ride that turns the heat up. Ms. Naughton continues to rock the Greek Mythology world with another entry in her brilliant Eternal Guardian Series.

The entire cast of characters returns for the fourth installment of the Eternal Guardian series to aid Orpheus in his quest to rescue his brother Gryphon from Hades, Atalanta, and the Underworld. Once again the Immortals won’t stop playing their games with the l

There are spoilers for the other books in the series in this review. And there is a small spoiler, which I didn’t even consider as a possibility for the plot, in the third paragraph, but it’s something you find out within about the first fifty pages.

As you know if you read Tempted, Orpheus is hell bent on rescuing his brother Gryphon from the Underworld. To do so, he has to track down the daughter of Zeus and Persephone, Malea, in order to find Apophos, the wizard who stole Gryph’s body and hold

Our Review [by Michelle L. Olson - LITERAL ADDICTION’s Pack Alpha]:
I have one word for this installment of the ETERNAL GUARDIAN series… WOW!

Given the thrilling conclusion to Tempted, I figured that this book would be chock full of goodness. It was that, and then some!

The fabulous Ms. Naughton gifted me with an Advanced Reading Copy of Enraptured and while I did a little happy dance when it first arrived in the mail, it was absolutely nothing compared to the excited verbal outbursts I experienc

This series has been getting better. In the past few books Orpheus has been straddling the grey, he is a Daemon, something that is considered vile and what he has kept as a secret from his own brother Gryphon.

He also has witch powers and after the events of the last book in which Gryphon's soul was sent to Tartus and body possessed, carries the Argonauts markings, something he doesn't want instead he has spent the past three months trying to rescue his brother and for that he needs to track down

The title says it all. I find myself Enraptured by this sensational, sizzling paranormal romance where a tortured soul defies darkness and becomes a hero.

Orpheus has lived hundreds of years as a creature of both dark and light, never fitting in anywhere. He is determined to rescue his brother from the underworld, even if he looses his own soul in the process. Skyla is a siren, a human servant/assassin who serves Zeus, the king of the gods. Skyla is sent to spy on Orpheus and claim the artifact

Seriously, this series is so full of holes it could be swiss cheese...but something keeps me going on. I don't understand but I am being entertained or I wouldn't be thinking so hard about stuff.

Orpheus has been the unknown since book 1 and I just had to find out his story. In the last book, we saw him use the orb to save his little brother Gryphon, but that wizard stole Gryphon's body, trapping Gryphon's soul in the underworld.

Orpheus is so wrecked with guilt that he decides he will go there an

What the plot really is:

In the previous books, Orpheus had the Orb of Kronos. He gave it to his brother Gryphon - the true Argonaut of his family - to kill Atalanta (pretty much the queen of all the Demons) - Her beginnings are explained in the first book, so I think it needs to be read in order.

Orpheus' plot was ruined by a warlock that took over Gryphon's body & sent his soul to Tartarus - the worst part of hell in the underworld. Orpheus needs to take the orb back from the warlock so he can s

Occasionally, I want nothing more than to read fluffy romances, liberally sprinkled with smut. However, it has to meet a few qualifications, the most important being that it must be well written, and the romance and brazen sexuality must be a benefit to the story. Nothing gratuitous for the sake of being wanton.

That being said, Naughton does the aforementioned well. Her writing is decent and her dialogue is easy to follow, and is generally able to avoid being cheesy. Her stories are emotionally

I was enjoying this series of fast mindless pleasure reads until I hit this novel, which dragged, did not get me invested in the characters or the story, to the point I was skipping over even the repetitious sex scenes. This is so disappointing I've decided not to read the next two (will return them instead & move on to something else).

The story had so much promise, and Orpheus deserved a better book than he was given, as one of the previously most fascinating characters in these novels. One wo

Okay after reading all four books I have to concluded that book four is my favorite. From the moment he was introduced I had a bit of a crush on the resident bad boy, Orpheus. This book definitely solidified my crush on him. What an amazing transformation for his character? Also to see Isadora rise to the challenge of being queen was very pleasant. As a writer myself, I love that authors have the power to make their characters evolve. That is so true in this book. Not only is their love here but ...more
