Who Wants an ARC of TEMPTED?

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).

    I am extremely excited about the dangerous Demetrius. Since Marked, he’s been on the side lines and the connection between him and Isadorra is electrifying. It’s going to be so good and I’m dying to see what happens next!

    I got hooked on this series. I really like the whole Greek mythology thing; I read a lot of paranormal books, but this is the first one related to Greek gods.

    When Isadora was first introduced I thought she’d be an annoying wimp, but I quickly started liking her character. I can’t wait to read a story where she’s one of the main characters and finally (hopefully) stops getting the short end of the stick.

    I would love an ARC of Tempted. I can’t wait to read about Demitrius. All of them are awesome, but I really like the idea of Isadora and Demitrius

    July 26th, 2011 at 8:19 pm · Link

    Though not usually the type of books I read, I recently read the first two in the series and became hooked.

    The stories and mythology are interesting and I really like the characters. I thought the last book was better than the first and have high hopes for the third one. I want to finally find out what happened to Isadora in book one and learn why Demetrius is such a douche (but a douche I think I’m going to like)!

    I love your Eternal Guardians series, cant wait for your future books to see how you develop your plot and characters. But the main reason why we cant wait for tempted is because we always fall in love with the dark and damaged alpha, with the hope of freeing his tortured soul πŸ™‚

    I can’t wait to read TEMPTED because I read ENTWINED, but it took forever to get a copy of MARKED (Which held my attention while getting my 1st tattoo) and I think I’ll go insane if I don’t get to find out what happens to Isadora before September!

    Well one word for why I want to read Tempted Demetrius!I mean he’s been such a jerk, a delicious one but a jerk nonetheless to Isadora and I so wanna see his come-uppence.

    Hee..mean of me but still I so like seeing heroes falling like a ton of bricks and fighting it all the way.

    Demetrius has intrigued me from the very first book. I’m excited to finally be getting his story. I’m also excited to see Isadora break from her role as princess a little bit more and discover more of what she’s capable of as a woman.

    Congrats on the fantastic review!
