A secret is revealed making him face the reality of his existence and power, but also come face to face with the one who can bring him to his knees.
“He is my male… The son of a God from another world and Eir...He is my maðr.” Her consort. “Pothos was championed by Spa and Velspar.”

Whenever I write a review for one of Setta Jay’s books I’m always in a quandary how to do it justice. We come back to the old Sassy story where I find it a little embarrassing admitting I like smut. Romance I’m finding is easier to admit to reading. I can justify (so not the right word) reading a romance with the understanding that I’m in it for the heartfelt storyline. What I don’t shout to the rooftops is that I get a kick out of being a peeping tom. I want to know how o

Storm of Ecstasy is the 9th book in the Guardians of the Realms Series, and it picks up immediately after Divine Ecstasy, The Guardians are back and as the battle wages on P finds that he is mated to a Goddess from another world.

It's been pretty obvious that I'm desperately in love with Hades. His son, Pothos, was almost as irresistible as he was! Between his passionate love for his mate and his never-ending love for his family and father, this male easily earned a place in my heart.

So here's what you'll find:
⭐ There was lots of the hot sex I've come to love and expect. Just thought you should know as this is an extremely important part of all of these stories.
⭐ Pothos had just found out who his mother really was. Hades

Alrighty book peeps! I am going to keep this review short and simple.

Strong Alpha – CHECK
Smart Heroine – CHECK
Amazing Sexual Tension – CHECK

What can I say, Setta Jay has created a staple in the paranormal romance/erotica world. It’s fun, dynamic, sensual, and filled with complex yet competent characters.

I just love this series, I look forward to every book. Not just because I want to know what happens with the individual Guardians stories but because Setta Jay has completely roped me into the world and every book puts me more on edge to see what will happen with the over all background story. I really liked Pothos and Gefn together. I especially liked how they didn't really resist the mating, sometimes the build up is necessary but sometimes the story flows better when there isn't the resistanc ...more

Storm of Ecstasy is electrifying ride that I couldn't put down until it was over. P and Gefn story is fast paced, it expands the Guardians world with the introduction of a new realm with its own mythology and heart stopping characters and showcases new powers. The chemistry and heat between P and his lovely otherworldly mate is sizzling and the general plot of the series progresses to such degree that it will be an impossible wait for the next installment in the fall.

WOW! Another HAWT and DELICIOUS story!

I wait with great anticipation for each new installment in the Guardians of the Realms series. There is just so much mouthwatering yumminess to savor.

This novel ups the stakes and brings the fierce and fiery mate frenzy to a new high. We are treated to some riveting developments that come thick and fast leaving you awed.

So good! P and Gefn are really good together. I like them both very much and it was cool seeing them get together, but this book focused a lot on what has been happening in the Realms and in Thule. The series has progressed quite a bit from the beginning to now. It started out very erotic with not that much of a story, but some interesting characters to now having a very interesting sometimes intense story that I am excited to see how it all ends- or hopefully not end.

Mindy Lou's Book Review
Setta Jay has created a fascinating world of powerful beings destined to protect the worlds. It's like stepping into another world when you dive into her books. It can be a bit confusing at first with all the new terminology but I'm fascinated with these guardians. I especially love reading about each and everyone of them meeting theirs fated mates. Setta takes erotic fantasy to a whole new level. At the end of every book in the series you get a glimpse of who will be the next couple and she has ...more

Well it's finally the turn of Pothos or P as he's known to his friends to step up and claim his own mate but happily Gefn seems more than happy to do some claiming of her own! Yes it's another scorching read from this author but pairing up this brooding powerful male with a Goddess no less just kind of really upped the stakes. I mean with Hades for a father it was quite clear that P was destined for bigger things but the discoveries here just keep coming thick and fast leaving this readers head ...more

Thoughts: Man was that HOT, but did you really have to end it there??!! Ms. Jay as usual delivers a fast paced, sexy as sin story that will leave you breathless. Oh, and I'm still trying to figure out how to pronounce Gefn lol. I have to say I REALLY want Gefn's cats, they sound like the coolest pets ever. I think I still want Hades the most but there's no way I would pass
5 stars

This series just draws me right in. With this being the 9th of the series there are a lot of characters. A lot has happened since the beginning. But Setta Jay does a pretty amazing job keeping us up to date and no huge amount of information dump. This could be read as a stand alone because of that but I'd recommend to just read the whole series. If you love steamy paranormal romance, this series hits all the good spots. The main couple in this book is Pothas (Hades son) and Gefn (the Thul

Vane scratched behind the tall golden ears as he spoke. “What can I say, I’m the pussy whisperer, aren’t I, beautiful?”

I love this quote even though it doesn't have a lot to do with the overall story of this book. Nevertheless, I am so happy with this one!

OMG!!! I've been binge reading this series and am once again not only enthralled but feel like I know each of these characters and their mates intimately. Such an emotional roller-coaster finding Pothos' mother came from another world and then finding his mate. Setta has become a clear favorite and anticipate her following the rest of the characters just as closely. Congratulations on another GREAT SUCCESS
*I read my personal copy to review for Wicked Reads*

This entire series has been fantastic! I will say that each story builds upon the last, but more so in books 8 and 9 - please don't start with this book (and honestly, they're all worth reading).
This is the story of Pothos (aka P), Hades son. He's a powerful Demi-God who has always been a low-key character. All the Guardians are amazing in their own ways, but P has always been intriguing.

Gefn is also a very powerful goddess from a different w

I get my erotica fix! I can always count on Setta Jay to give me romance, hot sex, and a great story. Not to mention finally P gets his. I have been lusting after the black winged Pothos since I started the series. What I really liked about Setta Jay was the summery of what has happened up to this point. Most of her books have been written as stand alones but the last book left off as a bit of a cliffhanger and so the summery she give is a good reminder to those of us who have read al

I am pretty sure I have said it before and I will say it again. This is without a shadow of a doubt one of my favorite paranormal series out there. Not only is the story line addictive as hell, the erotic content is off the charts hot......

This is Pothos story. I have pretty much loved him from the beginning when he was described as having tattoos and piercings....I mean really, not much more I needed to know. He is also Hades son, and the last b
Well, things are really hotting up in this world. It's obvious something big is coming and the tension is building at a rapid pace now. Apollo has been found and Hades is just spoiling for a fight but it's not happening just yet.

P is very sweet and he and Gefn are a lovely couple. it's looking like Gefn's brother and our sweet healer are up next, fun times ahead.

Oh my gosh, I love this damn series. Love, love Pothos aka P and Gefn. This series for me is always a great combination of so much sensual heat and great story line.....gotta love that, right. I think that P and Gefn may be my favorite couple in this series. Pothos is an awesome mate....psst, he gets that from his hot as hell dad. Bestest dad ever, him being an awesome dad just makes him that much hotter. I digress, sorry.

"Storm of Ecstasy" by Setta Jay. Book 9 of the Guardians of the Realms series.

OK. So I'm giving this book 4 stars because I really really enjoyed this book about Pothos (P) and Gefn but I'm really having a love/hate relationship with this book! Please forgive me if my review doesn't make any sense and my thoughts may be all over the place but this book left me with so many conflicted feelings, I really didn't know how to start this review.

I really enjoyed the story line to this book. The romance
World Building: This story takes place in the Tetartos realm, Earth, and the world of Thule.

The ability to enthrall others can help immensely during battles but controlling the power around his family is harder than anyone can imagine. Keeping himself apart from his loved ones is the only way Pothos knows how to protect everyone. So imagining him
