Do you love intrigue, danger, excitement, and lots of passion with a totally hot, buff guy? Of course you do—at least between the pages of a book! My featured author today brings all that, and then some. She’s Elisabeth Naughton, and she writes sexy, adventurous romantic suspense, and dark, sexy paranormal romance. With emphasis on the sexy!
Elisabeth blasted out of the gate with her first book, Stolen Fury, which got great reviews. The Chicago Tribune said, “Naughton deftly distils deadly intrigue, high adrenaline action and scorchingly hot passion.”
Wait! There’s more, including this review from Publisher’s Weekly:
“A rock solid debut…Naughton’s intelligent adventure plot is intensified by the blazing heat that builds from Lisa and Rafe’s first erotic encounter.”
I read Stolen Fury not long after the book came out, and I can tell you the reviews don’t lie. This book—and the others in the Stolen series—are really great. Dripping with suspense and passionate romance, this series will appeal to fans of Romancing the Stone and Indiana Jones. I don’t know about you, but I love this kind of globe-trotting adventure story, and there’s just not enough of them written for female readers.
But I did mention at the beginning of this post that Elisabeth also writes dark and sexy paranormal romance. Her latest series is called the Eternal Guardians:
As unrest in the Underworld threatens, seven warriors descended from the greatest heroes in all of Ancient Greece may just be mankind’s last hope.
Doesn’t that sound fabulous?! Here’s what NY Times bestselling author Larissa Ione had to say about the series:
“Gripping, dangerous, and sinfully sexy…Elisabeth Naughton combines dynamic dialogue and sizzling romance with a wicked cool world. Do NOT miss this series!”
The third book in the series, Tempted, was just released in September.
Tempted has been garnering raves, including this starred review from Publisher’s Weekly:
“Endlessly twisting plots within plots, a cast of complex and eminently likeable characters, and a romance as hot as it is complicated.”
Here’s the blurb for Tempted:
DEMETRIUS—He’s the hulking, brooding warrior his fellow Guardians avoid. Too dark. Too damaged. And given his heritage, he knows it’s best to keep everyone at arm’s length.
Isadora is missing. The words pound through his head like a frantic drumbeat. For her own protection, Demetrius did all he could to avoid the fragile princess, his soul mate. And now she’s gone—kidnapped. To get her back, he’ll have to go to the black place in his soul he’s always shunned.
As daemons ravage the human realm and his loyalty to the Guardians is put to the ultimate test, Demetrius realizes that Isadora is stronger than anyone thought. And finally letting her into his heart may be the only way to save them both.
There’s nothing better that a hulking, brooding warrior, IMHO. You just know he’s going to fall hard for the heroine, and when he does it’s going to be a thing of beauty. You can read all about the book on Elisabeth’s website, which includes an excerpt. And be sure to check out her Extras page for some great background and extra goodies on the Eternal Guardians.
For my readers today, Elisabeth has graciously donated a copy of Tempted. Since we’re already talking about adventure, let’s stick with that topic. What’s your favorite adventure movie?
