Sometimes, the notes I take after reading a book are enough to further expand into some kind of review. Other times, I don’t take enough and/or wait too long to expand upon them. And then there are the times I don’t bother writing anything down immediately (thinking I might do so later), and end up having to spend time trying to remember what I liked/didn’t like. So, for those time when I fall too far behind or don’t have enough notes, I decided that I will just post what I have as “notes on” that particular book.

Author: Elisabeth Naughton
Copyright: 2010 (Lovespell); 321 pgs.
Series: Eternal Guardians #1
Genre: Paranormal Romance
From Good Reads.com: From the moment he walked into the club, Casey knew this guy was different. Men like that just didn’t exist in real life—silky shoulder-length hair, chest impossibly broad, and a predatory manner that just screamed dark and dangerous. He was looking for something. Her. She was the one. She had the mark. Casey had to die so his kind could live, and it was Theron’s duty to bring her in. But even as a 200-year-old descendent of Hercules, he wasn’t strong enough to resist the pull in her fathomless eyes, to tear himself away from the heat of her body. As war with the Underworld nears, someone will have to make the ultimate sacrifice.
I picked this book because I’ve been wanting to read this author for awhile. I have her contemporary romance trilogy books in my TBR as well as the second Eternal Guardians.
I really enjoyed the world building based on Greek mythology. The Argonauts — descendants of seven heroes — protect Argolea, the place Zeus had set aside for those descended from the Olympian gods.Theron, descended from Heracles, is the leader of the Argonauts. He’s loyal and dedicated to his duty. He doesn’t care much for humans, so he’s a little thrown when he finds himself attracted to the human female, Casey, who saved his life. Theron gets an even bigger shock when he learns that the king of Argolea has been keeping a huge secret from the Argonauts and his subjects: Princess Isadora will die if a certain prophecy isn’t fulfilled. And worse, Casey is tied to the prophecy. Theron has to choose between his duty to Argolea and the woman he’s fallen in love with.
I plan to continue this series.
