Overview

*Erotic Paranormal Romance*

All books in The Guardians of the Realms Series are as standalone as possible, but do have subplot and story line continuation.

Conn had spent the millennia of his life fighting alongside his brethren as a Guardian of the Four Realms. He'd never allowed himself to imagine that he would be gifted a mate but her scent was inside him now. The intoxicating lure incited his wolf to track her and claim her in a sexual frenzy she could never deny. He refused to repeat the mistakes his brothers had made in their unions, instead he planned to fight the demands of his beast and tempt his female.

Dacia had spent the years of her life as a guardian of her family's secrets. Her days were consumed with helping her siblings search for the Immortals who had escaped the God Apollo's brutal training camps with her parents thousands of years ago. They were the only hope of finding answers to questions about their lives. Questions her parents hadn't resolved before their deaths.

Not in her wildest of dreams would Dacia have imagined the answers would instead find her. Or what form those answers would take. The breathtaking male who stepped out of the night and into her life was certainly not one of the hidden Immortals her parents had told of, he was so much more. Wielding both immense power and thrilling strength he aroused not only her body but the wolf hidden within.

Dacia needed to find a way to trust her seductive Guardian, not only with herself, but with her family as well. But how long could she hold out against both the intensity of the mating frenzy that demanded sexual release, and the wickedly sexy male who was tempting not just her body... but also her heart?

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

~ 4.5 Tempting Ecstasy Stars ~ Series keeps getting hotter! ARC Tempting Ecstasy Tempting Ecstasy is book four in the Guardians of the Realms series by Setta Jay. This series starts off hot and keeps getting hotter. We get mystery, action, off the charts sexual tension and erotic sexy romance.  The Guardians of the Realms series gives us an extraordinary blend of storelines with remarkable characters that have unique personalities and strengths that work. Everything keeps getting better and hotter in this series. Con is one sexy hot Guardian. Dacia is a good fit. I like how the author always finds a way to complement each couple. In Tempting Ecstasy we mainly learn about Dacia, her family, and where things might lead. There is no shortage of sexual tension; which is good to a point, but I felt like it was a little too much. Of course once Con and Dacia come together Ms. Jay does not disappoint us in the erotic department. I guarantee your panties will melt. Smoking HAWT! There was not as many battles or intrigue in this book as the others, which I missed. I like action and missed it in Tempting Ecstasy. We do get action just not what we have seen in previous books. I enjoyed that a few more things are revealed about the past with the Guardians, the Gods, and of course Elizabeth is proving to be smarter then anyone expected. The author also brought in some twists I was not expecting and a mystery that I really want to find out about. Of course the author keeps the side-storylines going and we will have to wait and see what happens with Brianne and Vane. I’m curious to see where all of this is go.  Don’t miss out on this Erotic Paranormal Romance series. The Guardians are Hot and Sexy. The storyline is exceptional leading us to who knows where. I am waiting with great anticipation for the next book.  Disclaimer: I received a complimentary ARC copy free of charge from the author with the sole purpose of an honest review.

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 am a fan for life :)

Marie's Tempting Reads ARC Review: Tempting Ecstasy is the fourth novel in A Guardian Of The Realms Series and it may just be my favorite...well other then Ecstasy Claimed. I was absolutely spell bound with this story. Conn is so sexy, seductive, and playful that I found myself swooning, drooling, melting, and panting throughout the whole book! Tempting Ecstasy by Setta Jay had EVERYTHING. A sexy alpha Guardian, one tempting virgin mate, LOTS of sassy fun seduction and so much STEAMY HOT sex that it will leave you moaning and panting for more. As soon as I found out Mrs Setta Jay was doing Conn's book after Denying Ecstasy I was so excited. Everyday that went by was a day closer to me getting my hands on Conn's story. I knew Conn's was going be another of my favorites in this series. Conn is playful, beyond sexy with tattoos so amazing and well done on his muscular form, that I was almost jealous of Dacia...a character! Can you believe that? But honestly, other then good looks, he has brains, he is protective and loyal and has no problems teaching lessons to Dacia's brothers when they get out of line. Dacia is another great heroine for this particular Guardian. She isn't aware that other Immortals exist until Conn comes into the picture. She has amazing abilities that shocked and pleased Conn. She remained virginal because no human male ever made her want to have sex. She is courageous, loyal to her siblings, innocent yet seductive in her own way. She fits Conn perfectly and when these two get together, I could feel the sexual tension in each chapter sizzle and spark until that incredible moment when they finally came together. I truly adore Setta's style of writing and think the plot is strong and easy to follow. From the first word to the last, I was hypnotized by the romance and seduced through the whole story from one scene to the next. The sex scenes is probably some of the HOTTEST I have read so far in this series and think its some of my ultimate favorites. I felt utterly satisfied with Conn and Dacia and wouldn't want a SINGLE thing to change with Tempting Ecstasy. There is still lots of excitement, danger, and LOADS of good times. With all the good things in Tempting Ecstasy it was NO hardship in giving this an OUTSTANDING FIVE OUT OF FIVE SHOOTING STARS! If you haven't had the chance to pick this story up then I am shocked and appalled, and INSIST that you run to Amazon, Barnes and Noble, or Smashwords to pick up not just Tempting Ecstasy, but EVERY single book in the A Guardian of the Realms series and see why I recommend over and over again, this series.

We finally meet a Guardian who is willing to go about wooing his mate rather than staking his claim and expecting her to fall in line (not that any have obeyed their dictates yet). He goes in search of his mate, lets her come to him. Both get more than they expected. As something continues to brew, what we don't know yet, we get to catch up with some old friends and meet some new ones. The characters continue to be strong, intelligent and independent personalities. There are no carbon copies in this series. Strong, fast moving story lines with laid out plots that flow smoothly from scene to scene (some which all but burn up the pages). Have a cold drink to cool down with. My rating of "Tempting Ecstasy" is 4.75 out of 5 stars.

Another highly erotic installment in the Guardians of the Realm series, this one features Conn, one of the Guardians who is a wolf shifter and the descendant of the God Apollo Dacia, a woman/wolf shifter whose spent years in hiding on earth with her family but has now got this irresistible immortal claiming that she is his mate. I really enjoyed the interactions between Dacia and Conn (sexy times people, sexy times!) but also her family - lots of brothers and sisters (of whom I hope we'll see more of in upcoming stories). Adjusting to their new life on Tetartos after living in Earth Realm for so long is difficult but necessary for them all to survive the latest in the salvos pitched at them from evil Elizabeth (whom we've seen in previous books). All the gang is here again, and we get some great scenes with the previous story couples, a reminder that they are all working together for a common goal. Solid continuation of the world building and the story arc, and with a little tease at the end to make you want to dive right into the next book. 4 stars.

Conn is a guardian and during one of his missions he came across the smell of his mate. Unknown to Dacia she is being watched and her life is about to change. All Dacia has known in her life is what her parents have told her and her siblings. Her sisters drive her crazy which makes her decide that its time to move. After completing his mission Conn goes back to track his mate he find her at her new place unpacking her things. When Conn decides to claim his mate his brother guardians go with him thinking it would be an easy thing was his mistake. Dacia knew someone was coming and used her link to her sisters to alert them. None of the guardians were prepared for Dacia and her crazy sisters. Conn takes her aside and explains what she is to him and that the mating frenzy was going to start but he would try to give her time to accept him. If her sisters weren't enough for the guardians Dacia's brother show up not long after they take the women back home with them. They continue with their fight against their enemies while looking for any Immortals that had escape the training camps. This book has it all a hot sex, great characters and a story that will draw you in until everything else fades into the background. I loved it and can't wait to read the next installment.
TammyS32 More than 1 year ago
Great Read! This is the 4th book in the series, Conn has found his mate and but he has decided to let her come to him. Dacia is an immortal and trying to find other who escaped the training camps alongside her parents. Once the mating frenzy hits neither can deny their passion for each other. This is a fast paced steamy paranormal. I loved the stories as well as the characters and I am looking forward to more.
Archaeolibrarian More than 1 year ago
In this instalment of the Guardians series, Conn is the one who has found his mate. Now I have a soft spot for him so I was thankful when I found out it was his story. Saying that though, it was Dacia who made their story so intriguing. Conn had watched his brothers make mistakes with their mates and had no intention of repeating them. As soon as he finds Dacia, he makes himself known to her but leaves the choice of the bonding to her. He makes no attempt to touch her and force the next step. Now I am not saying that nothing happens, because Conn uses his special gift and makes Dacia know who he is and what he can give her. Talk about hot!!! I loved that the choice was firmly with Dacia all the way through, and I especially loved how she and her sisters are a strong unit. Although I know their brothers are also strong, their posturing was amusing. I can't wait to see how Conn's new pack will pan out and I'm really hoping that Mia gets her HEA soon. A solid addition to the series that was completely enjoyable from start to finish, showing a completely different side of the mating frenzy. Hot and sexy, definitely recommended. * I received this book from NetGalley in return for a fair and honest review. * Merissa Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!

I received this book for my honest opinion from the published on NettGalley. The story is really getting good now. This book continues where the last one left off. I love how she built up the anticipation between Dacia and Conn. It was fun watching the two of them squirm until they couldn't take it anymore and gave into their desires. We finally learn what Elizabeth has been up to and of course you know it's not good but it will be interesting to see where the story goes from here and who is mated next. As always this book gets you all hot and bothered but in a great way!

After another mission on the Earth plane, the Guardian Conn catches his fated mate’s scent. He has hoped for a millennia that there was someone special for him and now that he’s found her he can’t wait to meet her. Dacia and her siblings all live on Earth. They have been looking for other Immortals but have yet to find any. When Dacia decides to get her own place and finds a handsome stranger at her new house that makes her body sing, she doesn’t know what to do. She certainly doesn’t know what to think of the strange story he tells her. When he and his Guardian brethren relocate her and her sisters to Tetaros, she’s still not sure what to believe, only that she’s finding it really hard to resist him. This has been my favorite Guardian so far. I loved the patience Conn showed towards his mate as he introduced her to himself and his world, even though he was finding harder and harder to resist. In most books where there are fated mates, strangers or not, they just jump at each other. It was a nice change. Of course, when they did start, whew! I enjoyed seeing the interactions with the other fated mates from the other books as well as the overall storyline of this series. I highly recommend to anyone that likes this genre. **I received an ARC of this story in exchange for an honest review

LOVED this installment of the series. I had been waiting for Conn's story for what seemed like forever and was so glad he got a whole book dedicated to him and Dacia. I melted my heart to see this big alpha male be so loving, understanding and tender with his mate. You can see where he is a true romantic and how much he treasured having a mate of his own. These two make a wonderful couple. Setta Jay has hit the mark with this series. Can't wait to start on Drake's book, I have a feeling it is going to be both beautiful and heartbreaking!

Guardian Conn has gotten a scent of his mate and now he can't wait to meet her. To get his hands on her. He has tracked her down and is finally getting his first glimpse of her beauty. Dacia and her family are immortals who have been quietly living on Earth and unaware of how many other immortals there are out there. She is taken completely by surprise by the beautiful creature standing in her him and claiming she is his. Where did he come from and why does she feel compelled to climb him. Conn has his work cut out for him with Dacia, getting her to trust him and explain pretty much everything to her. But he is looking forward to it, despite how being so closer to her is sweet torture. Dacia is determined not to give into the mating frenzy until she knows more and completely trusts Conn. But there is only so much she can take before she caves. There are so many things that I love about Conn. For one, I love how he embraced his mate. He didn't try to fight it or run from it. He was genuinely happy to have found Dacia. Even more than that, I really liked how patient he was with her. Conn understood how overwhelming everything was for her and had no problem waiting for her to get to a place where she felt safe and comfortable giving into the frenzy. Plus like all of Setta's heroes, he has a beautifully dirty mouth. I also have to give Dacia credit for holding out as long as she did. It was the smart thing to get all the answers first, but there is no way I could have resisted Conn for that long. Or for more than 30 seconds really. When Dacia finally accepts it all and they get together - holy hotness Batman! Oh how I love Setta's dirty talking heroes! This series continues to be amazing and every book sucks me completely into this world. And the ending to this one? Gah! Now I can't wait for Jax's story which is coming soon.

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. I Love getting lost in the extraordinary worlds and mesmerizing realms created by the author. One of these realms is where all things immortal, paranormal, magical,and many other species of the authors imagination live. Her attention to details and continuity of these worlds and characters from book to book truly make this series an epic journey. There Is a main background story that blends mythology, fantasy and the paranormal. Each book also progresses and reveals more of this thrilling main storyline. The Mythological Gods tampering and experimenting on the immortals leads to drastic measures. Now All immortals will be gifted with one true mate to complete each other (ahhh romantic) and be able to have offspring with.The trick is finding them, convincing them of who they are, and then keeping them. Conn- our hero, incredibly sexy, gorgeous Alpha of all the wolf shifters. Beyond brave and loyal, goes seamlessly from crushing evil threats to helping orphan children and creating beautiful sculptures. He oozes sexiness and has the most delicious way of talking very naughty. Amazingly patient, especially when it comes to Dacia and his newly acquired,overly protective interfering in-laws (they are a wolf pack after all).Dacia- our heroine, a spirited immortal wolf shifter with a bit "something" more to her powers. Just as she is gaining her independence from her overly protective family she is claimed by one impossibly attractive Guardian. Up until this point in her life Dacia has not met any other immortals besides her family and her work is about to do a 360 degree turnaround. She is an enjoyable, strong, heroine not afraid to face her feelings for Conn but needing to build some trust first. Lots of sparks on their journey to becoming fully mated, they make a great fit on many levels physically and mentally. The secondary characters and storylines add depth and excitement to the main story. Many of these characters have played major roles in the previous books or will be the focus of future ones. I love how they interact with each other and form a strong close knit unit. They are fiercely loyal to one another and as with all families there is a good deal of fighting and humor. We really get to know and enjoy these awesome characters as their storylines are cleverly interwoven and expanded throughout the series. Being able to follow up with these characters and revisit with them is awesome. Besides the sizzling sexual erotic wow scenes, there are lots of good vs evil scary thrilling scenes, adventure,never a dull moment excitement, twists and turns, romance and a plot that pulls you in and keeps you there.Seriously read this book straight through (the night), love playing in this fabulous world Setta Jay has created and didn't want the book to end. Can't wait for Jax's story, hope it comes out soon.
