From New York Times Bestselling author Elisabeth Naughton, comes HUNTED,a new novella in her Eternal Guardians Series, brought to you by 1,001 Dark Nights! Be sure to grab your copy today!


ABOUT HUNTED:

Erebus – Dark in every sense of the word, a skilled and lethal warrior, and sinfully sexy by design.

Since the dawn of modern man, Erebus was Hades’ secret weapon in the war between the immortal realms. Until Hades lost the minor god in a bet to his older brother Zeus. For the last hundred years, Erebus has trained Zeus’s Siren warriors in warfare and the sexual arts. But he’s never stopped longing for freedom. For a life filled with choice. And lately, he also longs for one Siren who entranced him during their steamy seduction sessions. A nymph he quickly became obsessed with and who was ripped from his grasp when her seduction training was complete. One he’s just learned Zeus has marked for death because she failed the last Siren test.

Before Erebus can intercede on the nymph’s behalf, she escapes Olympus and flees into the human realm. In a fit of rage, Zeus commands Erebus to hunt her down and kill her. Erebus sees his opportunity to finally go after what he wants, but he’s torn. Freedom means nothing if the Siren at the center of his fantasies doesn’t truly crave him back. Because defying the gods will unleash the fury of Olympus, and if he chooses her over his duty, whether she joins him in exile or not, the hunter will become the hunted.

Let's start off by saying that this is a first time read for us by this author and that we really enjoy our first read by them.

Erebus and Seraphine are in and impossible situation.Erebus is tasked to securing Sera and returning her to Zeus after she flee's.That is going to be a problem for Erebus as they have a past and he has unresolved feeling for her.


What a story it was action packed from  beginning to end.There was always something going on you were kind of living on the edge with them.The chemistry between these was amazing and hot as hell.


Sera I found her to sexy ,strong will, smart a surviver and very clever.


Erebus was protective,dangerous,immortal,a god, and sinfully sexy.I loved how he was willing to give up his life to see Sera protected and safe from her enemies.



I loved the story as it was very engaging as we learned a lot about both characters as well as a few very dangerous secrets coming to life.


I loved that Sera was brave enough and strong enough to save both of them .These two

 were destined to be together and I am so glad that they found the happiness they both deserved.

I love it when you can connect with the

 characters that you read about and I was able to do that with a cast of characters as I loved them from the onset so we already new we were going to love this story.When you are dealing with deities and gods you know your in for one hell of a ride as they are dangerous and lethal and without conscious.

A sexy read with intrigue mystery and love as well as a touch of erotica thrown into the mix with some scorching sex scenes.


We loved this novella are are looking forward to reading other books in this series as well as the authors other works.




5 stars from us





                   
   
 
   
ABOUT ELISABETH NAUGHTON

 Elisabeth Naughton is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author. From Elisabeth: “I was never one of those people who knew they wanted to be an author at the age of six. I didn’t have imaginary friends. I didn’t write stories in my journal or entertain my relatives by firelight after Thanksgiving dinner. For the most part, I was just a normal, everyday kid. I liked to read, but I wasn’t exceptional at it. And when my teachers complimented me on my writing abilities, I brushed them off. I did, however, always have a penchant for the unique and absurd. And as my mother told me all throughout my childhood, I should have been an actress—I was a drama queen before my time. “Years ago, my husband bought me Scarlett: The Sequel to Gone With The Wind. If you ever saw the book, you know it’s a long one. I sat and read that thing from cover to cover, and dreamed of one day being a writer. But I didn’t actually try my hand at writing until years later when I quit my teaching job to stay home with my kids. And my husband? After that week of reading where I neglected him and everything else until I finished Scarlett, he vowed never to buy me another book again. Little did he know I’d one day end up sitting at a keyboard all day drafting my own stories. “My writing journey has not been easy. I didn’t just sit down one day, decide I was going to write a book and voila! sell my very first attempt. As most authors will probably agree, the path to publication is filled with hours of work, pulling all-nighters I thought I’d given up in college, sacrifices, rejections, but a love I discovered along the way I just can’t live without. Instead of a big, thick book to read by lamplight (I do read much smaller ones when I get the chance), I’ve traded in my reading obsession for a laptop. And I’ve never been happier. “I’m one of the lucky ones. I have a wonderful family and fabulous husband who put up with my writing—and obsessive personality—even when life is chaotic. More than once my kids have been late to swimming or baseball because I needed just five more minutes to finish a scene. Their support and encouragement mean the world to me. I also have amazing friends and a support network I couldn’t survive without. So to all of you out there who have encouraged me along the way, sent me emails and fan letters, phone calls and congratulations, I just want to say, thank you. You make this whole writing gig that much more enjoyable. I truly wouldn’t be here without you.”

Twisted: Eternal Guardians, Book 7 - Tantor Audio,Elisabeth Naughton,Elizabeth Wiley

Twisted brought me back to the world of the Eternal Guardians. It has been a few years since I read a book in the series and picked up where I left off with Twisted, Nick's story. Nick is the half-breed/Guardian of the Misos colony in the human realm. We know him as the one who struggles with the fact that his soul mate happens to be in love with and married to his twin brother, and who is also the queen of Argolea. At the end of the last book he sacrifices himself to protect his soul mate and is taken as prisoner of Hades and his son Zagreus. For the past 6 months he as been tortured in this hellish prison and that torture has been overseen by Cynna. Cynna is also a prisoner, though her punishment and torture is to torture others. She helps Nick escape and they go on this whirl-win and passion filled adventure together as they fight to keep his god powers under control and find a way to save his soul mate from dying. Along the way they grow closer and she comes to realize that she cares a great deal for him and when it comes out how Nick can save his soul mate, the queen, her heart brakes and she leaves. I'm not going to throw any spoilers in her because the surprises and emotional tension throughout make for a great read and telling you about any of the twists would ruin it. Great read. I loved returning to this world and I'm looking forward to getting caught up by reading Ravaged next, the Awakened which I got from NetGalley.

Finished — Stolen Chances: Ughhh this book was terrible
Stolen Chances - Elisabeth Naughton,Elizabeth Wiley

I mean terrible. 

 

Besides the the hero forgiving the heroine immediately it turned into a schmaltzy love must conquer hate! mess. It drove me nuts. And of course it was all coming from the asshole heroine. OMG, let him go, for us, our love must overcome his hate, nevermind he'll keep coming after us OOPS he kidnapped me again! Argh!

 

Then, of course, a ton of time was spent with the hero and heroine together being all lovey-dovey like I give a good god damn. The man list eight years of his daughter's life I WANT TO SEE THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN FATHER AND DAUGHTER!!!!! Instead she was barely in the rest of the book.

 

*SEETHES*

Seven Hours – Fuck your secret baby stories!
Stolen Chances - Elisabeth Naughton,Elizabeth Wiley

Seriously, it is the worst trope out there. The only thing I can think of that is worse is the falling-in-love-with-her-rapist trope. I would like to take all the secret baby books, put them in a pile, and make a huge bonfire.

 

The heroines in these stories are flaming trash piles, with few exceptions. Terrible human beings, and yet I'm supposed to believe in an HEA let alone root for one?

 

The heroine in this book is no different. Terrible excuses for not telling the hero when she could. And had the nerve to sleep with him before being forced to come clean! Coupled with the heap of other lies she was keeping. I know I'm supposed to be horrified that the villain knocked her the fuck out. But seriously I was just glad someone did what I had been aching to reach through my speakers and do. Because that'll be the only comeuppance she gets. 

 

Of course, much like all the other heroes in these stories he comes up reasons to forgive her. He understands her lame-ass reasons, and even takes blame upon himself. Gaaaaahhhh! *rips out hair* All so they can end up together when they shouldn't. I always wish the heroine would die or just fuck off in some way that the hero can claim his child and they can live happily ever after.

 

I hate this trope so much. HATE. The story for me becomes all about what the hero has missed in his child's life. He never gets any justice for that. It's never an HEA for me.

 

New rule: I flounce the hell out of secret baby books instead of trying to power through. The rage isn't worth it. I may stick around long enough to ascertain what the heroine did to try and find/notify the hero. But if it's not enough, or later she doesn't tell him when she has the opportunity I'm out.

 

To add insult to injury in this book the sex was so graphic. I liked this series because they were decent romantic suspense, light on sex and not graphic. Actual romance sex scenes. Then somewhere between the second and third book "cock" became Naughton's favorite word —judging by how much she uses it in her PNR series — and so now it is said constantly in this book. It's obnoxious as fuck. Romance doesn't need such graphic euphmisims.

Tempted
Tempted - Elisabeth Naughton,Elizabeth Wiley There may be a few spoilers.. I can't help it sometimes.

I freaking love the world this book is based in but I did not like Isadora at all. I tried because she ended up doing some good things and what she did for her sister was obviously amazing but she just annoyed me. She was trying to take charge of her life.. okay. I get that. But the way she did it? I don't get that. And the first time her and Demetrius had sex.. uhh. It was borderline rape. He was attracted to her. He told her that but he also said that he didn't want it to go that far but she didn't care because she was "taking charge" of her life. I did not like that one bit. And even before that she just kept pushing him for it. Some would call that determination.I think even Demetrius called it determination which knocked him down a peg in my book. But I call that desperation and pathetic and god just annoying.

Now Demetrius I liked. I felt bad for him because he got stuck with Isadora for a mate but whatever. He was a good character. Interesting backstory. Yeah. He had to keep saving isadora. That is basically all he ever did. She kept getting in trouble.

If the female character were different I would have liked the book more. I hate rating it with 3 stars but characters are kinds the bread and butter of books and Isadora was just awful. But it was good and the plot it moving right along. I am looking forward to the next book.
