4.5 LOVE to be TEMPTED STARS
"She'd never considered being possessed by a male, but that was what it felt like, being owned, but having just as much ownership over him. The big powerful male was hers."-Dacia
Tempting Ecstasy is the fourth book in The Immortal Guardians Series. With each book in the series, the plot continues to develop and the intensity of the bonds continue to build. What I have found to be most appealing in this series is the camaraderie between the guardians and the strength of their mated counterparts.
Dacia is a Lykos (immortal half wolf with the power of telekinesis). She is a loner but is passionately loyal to her family. Just as she is setting up a life for herself deep in the safety of the forest, Conn (a Guardian) scents her and recognizes her as HIS! Because she has spent her life on earth, when Conn enters the scene her entire world is turned upside down.
Conn, also a Lykos, recognizes instantly that Dacia is not quite ready to immerse herself into the Guardian Life. Conn makes the decision to wait for her to be ready to accept him. I thoroughly enjoyed the "advance/retreat" between these two. Conn and Dacia took time to build their friendship before they took their relationship to the next level.
"I've made my choice. He's who I want."-Dacia
When they do come together, it was full steam ahead. Ms. Jay certainly knows how to right a smokin' hot scene! In the meantime, the realms are under attack. Dacia's family is moved in with the Guardians and things are turned upside down as the tension builds. This read is action packed, full of tenderness, and suspense!
"He valued her. He saw her as a worthy partner."-Conn
If you have been following my reviews of this series, you know that the main theme of each book is based on a guardian and how he finds and claims his mate. I astonished at how Ms. Jay makes each book unique. Each guardian has different gifts and temperaments as do their mates. I have thoroughly enjoyed each book individually but also how it aligns with the series as a whole! Sometimes when you are reading a series you quickly forget about the characters that were featured in the previous books. I have found that in this series I only grow more attached to each of them and I love to see them developing and growing as the series develops. I have become a die hard Setta Jay fan and I already have the next book loaded on my kindle and ready to go! PRN Romance Fans you must check this series out!
