Enraptured (Eternal Guardians Series #4) by Elisabeth Naughton


Orpheus-To most he's an enigma, a devil-may-care rogue who does whatever he pleases whenever he wants. Now this loose cannon is part of the Eternal Guardians-elite warriors assigned to protect the human realm-whether he likes it or not.

Orpheus has just one goal: to rescue his brother from the Underworld. He's not expecting a woman to get in the way. Especially not a Siren as gorgeous as Skyla. He has no idea she's an assassin sent by Zeus to seduce, entrap, and ultimately destroy him.

Yet Skyla herself might have the most to lose. There's a reason Orpheus feels so familiar to her, a reason her body seems to crave him. Perhaps he's not the man everyone thinks... The truth could reveal a deadly secret as old as the Eternal Guardians themselves.

The series continues with another solid story line. I do enjoy her mix of characters and stories running with a long story in a sense. The only knock I have against this series is it includes a bit of romance novel. However, after looking at what other books she has written prior to this series, it isn't surprising. That's the only thing about these books I could live without. I would prefer them to be about another 150-200 pages long, I believe she tends to wrap it up pretty quickly and some of the battles could be more pronounced, but overall, I like the series and continue to watch for the next book each time.

Enraptured is a dark, sexy and gripping read that will leave you addicted to these Eternal Guardians if you weren’t already! Orpheus is now one of the Eternal Guardians, at least according to the marks on his arms he is. But he wants nothing to do with the elite group, all he wants it to find his brother and rescue him from Hades and he will stop at nothing to see his goal fulfilled. When a Siren named Skyla gets in Orpheus' way though the game drastically changes. Sent by Zeus to steal an artifact from Orpheus and stop him from completing his task, Skyla comes to the startling revelation that she has met Orpheus in the past. The Gods have not been entirely honest with her and Skyla must decide if she wants to see the past repeated. Can Orpheus hold his dark side at bay though to complete his task and fight off his instant feelings of connection to Skyla or will succumbing to it be the only way to set his brother, and himself, free? ZOMG, I knew Orpheus was going to be good but I didn't know he was going to be this damn good! Enraptured is hands-down, the best of the Eternal Guardians series to-date. I LOVED IT and I am so glad too because you know when you set your heart on a character from the very beginning and you hope to God that when they finally get their HEA that you don't end up disappointed? That's how I felt with Orpheus but Elisabeth Naughton brilliantly captured his story and Enraptured totally rocked my socks off! Complex, in-depth and magically woven together, Enraptured kept me glued to the pages start to finish. The Eternal Guardians are the direct decedents of the original Argonauts and heroes. Orpheus doesn't see himself as any sort of hero however and his story is both touching and heart-wrenching as we journey through the revelations of his past and the acceptance of both his light and dark side. Orpheus is truly one of my favorite book heroes and long ago earned a top spot in my book-boyfriend harem! Skyla was a strong, kick-ass heroine that matched Orpheus perfectly. Their attraction was instant and *fans self* really sex-ay due to a connected past but not easy; full of twists, turns and surprises I loved how Ms. Naughton revealed each piece of the puzzle and the ending was *sigh* put together superbly. The plot moved at a steady and captivating pace, I was most definitely Enraptured by it! Enraptured can be read as a stand-alone but is so much better read in series order. The Eternal Guardians series is a must read for romance, paranormal and mythology fans. I love when authors add a mythological twist in their stories and this entire series is based on a fun one. Ms. Naughton gives the Argonauts her own little spin and ended up creating a series that no one should miss!

SEXIEST NEW PARANORMAL ROMANCE COUPLE IN A LONG TIME! Our Review [by Michelle L. Olson - LITERAL ADDICTION’s Pack Alpha]: I have one word for this installment of the ETERNAL GUARDIAN series… WOW! Given the thrilling conclusion to Tempted, I figured that this book would be chock full of goodness. It was that, and then some! The fabulous Ms. Naughton gifted me with an Advanced Reading Copy of Enraptured and while I did a little happy dance when it first arrived in the mail, it was absolutely nothing compared to the excited verbal outbursts I experienced throughout the read. ¿ Orpheus is an absolutely incredible hero. He’s dealing with his own demons (or daemons as the case may be), skeletons in his closet, and an all encompassing guilt regarding his brother Gryphon’s plight. He has a single minded purpose and sets out to accomplish his goals only to be railroaded and turned inside out and upside down by a sexy Siren with eyes the color of amethysts. Skyla is Zeus's longest tenured Siren. She should have left the fold eons ago but didn’t. Recovering from a mission gone wrong, she starts out in Enraptured trying to prove something – to both herself and her superiors. Little does she know that she’s about to cross paths with the one man that will make her scatter brained, and he just happens to be her mark. Thrown together in a case of ‘the enemy of my enemy is my friend’, Skyla and Orpheus embark on a thrilling journey with a demigoddess as their charge, each with their own agendas but with a common lust for reaching their end goal, and as it turns out, one another. They also discover things about one another that make for even more tension, heightened desire, captivating dialogue and a twist to the story that is as unique as it is thrilling. These two as a couple are hot as hell! Yowza. Both stubborn as all get out, the banter between them was enough to keep the reader riveted, but add in the undeniable attraction between the two of them and you end up with scenes that raised the temperature of the room several degrees and warranted a re-read because they were just THAT good. In standard Naughton fashion, the world building was a beautifully woven tapestry with descriptions that drew the reader in and made you feel like you were actually a part of the story. Couple that with not only the fabulous leading duo but appearances by just about all of the cast that we’ve come to know and love in the ETERNAL GUARDIAN world, and this was one book that I couldn’t put down but that ended much too quickly. It is my personal opinion that Elisabeth has grown and outdone herself with each new installment of the ETERNAL GUARDIANS series, but Enraptured was an absolutely phenomenal read and as I said at the start of this review, the best word for it is just “wow”. Enraptured is the perfect title for this book because that’s exactly how I felt after reading it – totally and completely enraptured. LITERAL ADDICTION gives Enraptured a highly deserved 5 Skulls and recommends it to everyone; Elisabeth and her sexy Argonauts should not be missed!

** Some Spoilers** I was so excited to read Orpheus' story! This was an awesome installment in the series! I loved the dynamic between Orpheus and Skyla. She was his perfect mate. I really enjoyed her as character because she was a very strong heroine. This woman knew what she wanted and went for it regardless of everything else. She was determined and head strong even as an obstacle denied her. She was the kick in the butt that Orpheus needed and it was beautiful to see her give him hope and everything else he thought he didn't deserve in life. I loved where the adventure is heading. There are lots of different things that happen in this book that any follower of the series cannot miss. Another aspect of the series that I enjoy is that Ms. Naughton still has chapters from the previous characters that have books! It's so nice to revisit with the characters that I grew to know and love.

If you don't fall in love with these gorgeous Argonauts, there's something wrong with you! Each book can be read as a stand alone, but honestly, you need to read them all! I'm reading the last one now, and already can't wait for the next one!!

Totally loved the characters in this book. The story line is just amazing. I have read the other three books in the series and I can't wait for the rest. After reading the first book I bought the rest of the available books. For me to get hooked on a series it takes a lot, this just caught my attention and held it.

Highly recommend to anyone looking for a new series to read..I am very picky when it comes to paranormal romance so have high expectations when it comes series in this genre. I believe this series is very underrated and I for one have become a unsuspecting fan. As far as this book goes Orpheus has been my favorite from the beginning. So was waiting for this particular book to come along. Was not disappointed great read!!
