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, then ultimately destroy him.

Yet Skyla herself might have the most to lose. There’s a reason Orpheus feels so familiar to her, a reason why 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.

Sexual



Hell yeah!  A spellbinding and wickedly sexy thrill ride that turns the heat up.  Ms. Naughton continues to rock the Greek Mythology world with another entry in her brilliant Eternal Guardian Series. 

The entire cast of characters returns for the fourth installment of the Eternal Guardian series to aid Orpheus in his quest to rescue his brother Gryphon from Hades, Atalanta, and the Underworld.  Once again the Immortals won’t stop playing their games with the lives of the Argoleans and Misos.  (Misos, which reminds me of Nick - - - Ms. Naughton, when are you going to grace us with his book?!?  Pretty please.)  We are given a glimpse of Kronos…WOW…but it’s enough to know he’s going to wreck plenty of havoc in 
ENSLAVED, and he’s one helluva bad ass Titan.
 
Before you get started reading, check out the Lexicon at the back of the book to reacquaint yourself with the words used throughout the story.

I have been waiting for Orpheus’s story since he first made his appearance as a shop-keeper in MARKED, Eternal Guardians #1, and it was well worth the wait.  Orpheus is a very complex character – an outcast in the Argolean society:  Part witch, part daemon and part Argonaut.  His quest to save his brother Gryphon from Tartarus is also his own journey of redeeming his soul.  The immediate connection between Orpheus and Skyla is sparked by the “reincarnated” Orpheus; although neither one of them know that at the time.  And once these two hook-up, they are a formidable force to reckon with; whether they’re battling hell-hounds, daemons, or each other.

Speaking of Tartarus.  Ms. Naughton vividly brings to life the vast areas of the Underworld, Tartarus, Sin City, and the Fields of Asphodel.  Some of the action that takes place there is a bit graphic; some not for the squeamish even though it may be brief.

I don’t think it’s necessary to read any of the other books in the Eternal Guardian series to fully enjoy ENRAPTURED and it can be read as a stand-alone novel.  Unfortunately, you’ll be missing a great deal of  excellent mythological paranormal romance!
