From the Publisher
"Conniving Greek gods, horrifying demons, vengeful warriors, and true love clash in this sexy, fast-paced paranormal romance series launch." —Publishers Weekly
Publishers Weekly
Conniving Greek gods, horrifying demons, vengeful warriors, and true love clash in this sexy, fast-paced paranormal romance series launch. Cocktail waitress and bookseller Casey Simopolous leads a lonely life until the night she rescues a mysterious man from a pack of hideous monsters. The handsome stranger is the Argonaut Theron, a guardian of a realm inhabited by the descendants of Greek demigods, and Casey soon finds herself thrown into a dangerous romance amid secrets and prophecies that may hold the key to her own mysterious past and the salvation of Theron's besieged race. Naughton (Stolen Fury) occasionally stumbles in her narration, but she has a tremendous skill with steamy passion, dynamic characterization—especially of strong, multifaceted women whose friendships and family relationships play a crucial part in the story—and thrilling action.

Library Journal
Being Greek, Casey (Acacia) Simopolous knows her mythology, yet it has totally eluded her that her father was the King of the Argoleans and she has been marked by destiny to save their race. Then she rescues Theron, leader of the Argonauts, from a group of daemons and is drawn into an ancient conflict that could lead to her death. VERDICT Steamy, intricately plotted, and creatively conceived, this title gets Naughton's "Eternal Guardians" series, featuring warriors who protect their world from the daemons of the Underworld, off to a sizzling start and will leave paranormal fans breathless and wanting more. Naughton (Stolen Seduction) lives in Oregon.

“ Marked is bound to strike paranormal fantasy gold. …Naughton adeptly intertwined the Greek mythology-fueled storyline with virtually nonstop action, fantastical adventure and humorous pop culture references to create a read that I not only devoured but almost instantly found myself wanting more. …As far as literary guilty pleasures go, Marked ranks right up there with some of the best paranormal romance I’ve ever read." --Paul Goat Allen, B&N Community Blog
