Did you hear? Publisher’s Weekly gave TEMPTED a starred review!
Elisabeth Naughton. Sourcebooks Casablanca, $7.99 mass market (416p) ISBN 978-1-4022-6046-9
Naughton’s sexy, fast-paced Eternal Guardians series, in which superhuman warriors protect descendants of the Greek gods, continues in this riveting and unpredictable third installment (after 2010’s Marked and Entwined). Isadora, princess of Argolea and descendant of the Horae, the goddesses of balance, is kidnapped by an evil warlock’s servants. Demetrius, an Argonaut with a dark secret, rescues her but treats her contemptuously to mask his love for her. When evil goddess Atalanta strands the pair on a dangerous island as part of her plan to take over Argolea, Isadora and Demetrius trade antagonism for passion, with strong, vivacious Isadora taking the lead as darkness threatens Demetrius’s tortured soul. Naturalistic, snappy dialogue, endlessly twisting plots within plots, a cast of complex and eminently likeable characters, and a romance as hot as it is complicated make this an entertaining and smoldering read. (Sept.)
Doesn’t that sound awesome? The review will go live on the Publisher’s Weekly site this week.
And in honor of this awesome review I’m giving away an ARC of TEMPTED to one lucky commenter here. Unfortunately, when I tried to do this yesterday on Twitter (by having entrants rewteet the review), Twitter didn’t want to cooperate. Not all retweets were showing up in my feed and/or going to my email so…we’re starting over. Leave me a comment telling me why you can’t wait to read TEMPTED and I’ll enter you in the drawing! Winner will be picked Wednesday 7/27/11 at noon (PST).
