Marked (Eternal Guardians #1)
by Elisabeth Naughton


PJVs QUICKIE POV: I seem to go through fazes... the theme of the month are the Olympians. Always a big fan of those naughty gods and goddessess Naughton's Eternal Guardians had my interest piqued from the get-go. Pair in some huge manly warriors, seedy strip-clubs and a secret world - you might have a plot line that has been used a few times before - but it still had me entertained.

REVIEW: Casey is a restless spirit, never one to fit in, she went from place to place, job to job looking for companionship, a life, a meaning. She thinks she has found it, with a bookstore, a little house and a friend. Her little world though, is turned upside down when a highly attractive man comes into the bar she works, catches her as she trips - then ignores her and literally carries a gorgeous blond out the back door.

Theron is an Argonaut, from the line of Heracles. He is in line for the throne, set to marry the heir to the current ruler. While not thrilled with the idea, he is there to serve, he is a warrior, a protector and he will have to be a strong ruler for his people, because the princess while a good person is not strong enough to rule. When she sneaks away to the human world, Theron must find her and bring her back home. He doesn't plan on being ambushed by daemons or to be saved by a human woman - a human woman that he can't seem to keep his hands off.

Marked followed similar lines that most Paranormal Romance books follow - Clueless female that encounters paranormal male, is sucked into his world and then finds out she might be a part of that world. They find they are destined to be together but extenuating circumstances have them fighting more than f... well you know what I mean. The world was original, while the algorithm was not. I did enjoy reading though, I just didn't analyze it too much. I'm usually not a fan of "Fated Soul-Mates" but this one actually worked for me. They fought against it enough that the fall was worked for, and all the hidden truths and such made it almost seem an impossible love, thus keeping me on my toes. There was a bit too much teasing...I was screaming at some point "Just Get It On" to Theron & Casey, they sure did drag their feet enough. I will be reading the second book, but I don't know how quickly I will get to it, since I heard Naughton has switched publishers and the 3rd books release will be delayed. Like to read these babies back to back. Entwined (Eternal Guardians) covers Zander which is the one I was hoping for in the next one. The reason for my lower than usual rating is the unoriginal plot and the fact that the antagonist was a bit overdone. I mean really, what did Daddy not love you that much that you now have to exterminate an entire race???

RECOMMENDATIONS: Adults only, this is a PNR  and there are a few love scenes. Fan of Greek Mythology might enjoy, similar to BDB series - at least the big throbbing muscular men are ;)

Lol, I love your reviews. XD I might save this for my "fluff" readings.

I enjoy this series but I definitely liked Zander's story more than Theron's so I'm thinking they're going to get better as they go. Isadora is very interesting and she's book 3 so I'm looking forward to that!
