The things you do to me. Fuck. I'm going to destroy you princess. I'll toy with you, tempt you, and give you everything you never knew to ask for.

This book is intended for an adult audience. It contains explicit sex; voyeurism; dirty talking males with bad language.

I am NOT kidding here, people. Read this series at your own risk. Even my steel ovaries get overheated while reading this. I swear it's like Setta Jay sits down after she fi

"’re a gift beyond words and emotion. You’re the piece of my soul that makes me whole again."

Conn just happens to be the one Guardian I have been waiting for. In all the previous books he has proven to be the happy go lucky guy who is always there for his brothers and sisters and their mates. He is also the first of the Guardian's who is excited to have a mate and has made finding her his main priority, when they are not battling the mess that is forev

"She'd never considered being possessed by a male, but that was what it felt like, being owned, but having just as much ownership over him. The big powerful male was hers."-Dacia


Tempting Ecstasy is the fourth book in The Immortal Guardians Series. With each book in the series, the plot continues to develop and the intensity of the bonds continue to build. What I have found to be most appealing in this series is the camaraderie between the guardians and the strength o

Oh little wolfy, what on earth were you waiting for?

Hmmm, Tempting Ecstasy…this one left me a wee bit frustrated. In the series so far we’ve met each of the couples and gone through their lust filled journey to their first connection that brings on the mating frenzy. With Conn and Dacia, the main characters, Dacia is innocent and Conn was patient and thoughtful…HUH??? The Guardian’s aren’t patient and thoughtful. They’re animals that are ruled by their uncontrollable need to mate. Maybe it was m

As you probably already know, I've been busy busy busy reading this series and LOVING it! I'm really eager to get back to it so I'll quickly summarize my thoughts for you and hope that you'll join me in loving these books too!

🐾 One sniff was all it took for Conn to know that he'd found his mate and he couldn't be more thrilled. Aside from Uri, I think he was the most excited to find his other half.
🐾 Conn's mate isn't as excited that he's found her. She and her family have lived in the Earth Real

This series just gets hotter and the story keeps evolving and growing. Conn is some kind of Guardian. He knows Dacia is his mate, but gives her time to realize it without pressuring her no matter how much the mating frenzy is getting to him. Her family is going to add a whole new layer to this series. I can't wait to start the next one.

Con and Dacia. Right from the get-go Con ain't having the bullshit drama his brethren have had. He’s not fighting anything but his lust for the lovely Dacia. He scents, seeks, and sets off to satisfy. I truly loved Con. He's sweet as he is strong, and patient and kind with a sexy, rugged quality ….. I think I hear Maroon 5! LOL

Just when I thought the author couldn't right a hotter male character, she proves me wrong. Conn, lordy, Conn. What woman wouldn't want a man who is patient, who is willing to curb his desire, to wait for his innocent mate, Dacia to adjust to the changes that she is experiencing. If you have read this series so far, you have learned that Guardians sexual needs are insatiable and when they are in a mating frenzy, it's worst, the ache not only takes over their bodies, but their thoughts.

Setta Jay writes some sexy books but damn, she outdid herself this time. Tempting Ecstasy had to be one of the hottest books I have ever read. I think before I pick up the next one I’m going to have to institute some rules. The first one being my significant other needs to be available afterward!

Conn went about winning his mate differently than the other guardians. He didn’t deny her or their bond, he embraced it. He also let it be her choice of when and where they would ahem…get the mating part
Holy Hot Wolf Guardian Batman!


I love paranormals, and of the mass amounts I've read, I've found that I tend to lean towards the wolfy males the most ;) Not sure why, but I guess I’m a wolf shifter girl all the way. With that said, it should be pretty obvious that once I found out Conn was the wolf shifting Guardian, I was most definitely wanting to read his book asap! So, when the author contacted me and offered a copy for review I squealed like a kid in a candy store and did a little

Oh my yet another story that firmly pushes any and all boundaries. If there is a taboo anywhere in the world then it appears to this reader that Ms Jay is determined to find it and let her characters grind it into dust! This book is not for those seeking sweet romance but if you are prepared to need numerous cold showers whilst rushing back for just one more chapter then this hot instalment is for you!

Her wolf knew exactly who he was.

"She wanted to retreat, but her beast wanted to pounce."

He didn't want to scare her.

Dacia had no idea who the male in front of her was, but her wolf knew exactly who it was.

First of all, I have LOVED each of the books in this series. This one by far was probably my favorite of them all!! Conn is the ultimate sexy alpha type male. He is sweet, caring, gentle, sexy, but also a bad ass fighter. If you liked the other books in this series you should love this one. It keeps you on your toes with anticipation and definitely delivers in the steamy erotic zone. Definitely a must read for anybody that enjoys books like the BDB. I can't wait for the next book to come out. I ...more

I liked this one a lot. Mainly because Conn is yummy and has that whole lumersexual thing going on!

So here is the thing with these books. I started them because I was in to mood for a some PNR and some smut. My plan was to read a few and then move on to the massive list of books that I promised myself I would read before the end of July.

Still loving this series! But it has taken me until Book 4 to get to one of them that I didn't either really like or straight up love...

Dacia was the main reason why I didn't have a ton of love for this book. So far, most of the heroines have been funny, cute, sweet, sassy, or bad ass. Dacia wasn't really any of those things. She wasn't a particularly happy character and I had no problem with that, seeing as how she lost her parents at such a y
4 1/2 "So very tempting, I love wolves" Stars!

LOVED IT!! My favorite of the series so far. These two almost teased each other to death. I have never read where a couple had so many sexual encounters without even touching. It was hot, Hot, HOT!

I absolutely loved Conn. He's my favorite Guardian so far. He was so patient with Dacia and I loved how sweet and considerate he was to her sisters. Conn was a complete (dirty talking, kinky, dominant, wicked, possessive, sexy) sweetheart. Another male to a

Book 4 of the Guardians of the Realms series, Conn and Dacia's story.

This is my favourite book of the series so far. Dacia and her family have grown up on Earth because her parents ran there after escaping the labs of the evil Gods centuries before. Since her parents died before telling them about the Immortals and the other realms, they know little about it. When Conn turns up at Dacia's new home, she knows that her wolf wants him but she is wary of trusting him and is protecting her family

***** 3.75 Stars *****

Tempting Ecstasy is an erotic fantasy that can be read as a standalone. However, I recommend reading the series in order to get a better idea of the story as there are a lot of characters and background information to wrap your head around.

This book is about Conn, a Guardian that can turn into a wolf, and Dacia. They can't fight the attraction, and the majority of the book is about them having sex everywhere.

I'm a bit more interested in some other characters in the series
Great PNR

Enjoyed Dacia and Conn. Thought he would be more tech nerd but he was super alpha and steamy. Very considerate of his mate. I liked the h and her family ties. Ots nice to see more immortals being found.

Tempting Ecstasy is Book Four in the awesome Guardians of the Realms series by Setta Jay. From the beginning the books are beyond five on the OMG hotness scale and it just builds from there. Another exciting story in this series that weaves together strong spellbinding plots, phenomenal characters and lots of swoonworthy need some ice erotic scenes and sexual tension. Highly suggest you read the books in order to get the full experience and enjoyment from the series, you won't regret it.

This book is a guaranteed panty melter. Holy crap is it a hot one.

If you are easily offended by any of the following then this is NOT the book for you, move along and read something tamer. Hot alpha male, dirty talker, tattoos, voyeurism, super hot claiming sex, anal play, mutual masturbation, more super hot sex, telepathic sex, a smoke emitting and grunting dragon, more alpha males, tough kick ass women, a case of male on male on female, oh and lots and lots of foreplay.

Alright, first, I need to apologize to Setta Jay for not posting this review in a timely manner. It seems like I read this forever ago (and I think it was actually September--fyi, GR says Oct 4). So...

I don't know that there is a whole lot I can say that I haven't said before. I love this series! Setta Jay has some serious talent. With each book, she pulls me further into this world. I think she's also getting kinkier with each book.

The title was very fitting, indeed, and one of the very reason I liked this one. Well, I know it was all an oo-kay read for me from the other books but I’ve actually gotten to love this series. I’m still having some issues but well, let’s discuss what enthralled me first.

So, the title. I love the temptation and the way Conn and Dacia danced around with the inevitable. They know they’re going to be mated and that they are fated for each other, but the restraint they have to put with themselves an
