Demetrius, an Eternal Guardian, dedicates his life to
keeping Daemons from taking over the human realm. Demetrius
thinks he understands himself better than anyone especially
since his secrets can destroy all he knows if he makes one
mistake or slips up just once. His limits are why Demetrius
keeps his distance from his soul mate, Isadora, for too many
years to count; making her think he can't stand her is his
strategy and main goal in his long and lonely life.
Demetrius' dark and damaged heart can't be touched by
Isadora in any way keeping her safe and far away from the
secrets that will destroy her light. Unfortunately,
Demetrius' plans and decisions regarding Isadora are taken
out of his hands when Isadora goes missing without a trace.
Isadora doesn't understand why Demetrius hates her so much
but he is always the first to come to her rescue when
needed, he just doesn't make any sense. Isadora is getting
stronger everyday thanks to having her sisters within the
same walls but she still has questions that only a few can
answer so sneaking around and trusting those she shouldn't
is the only way to get those answers which gets her into
trouble by the very enemies trying to kill her. Isadora has
no way to know that her actions force Demetrius to face his
past, embrace who and what he really is just to save the
only woman he will ever love by using all his strengths to
bring back the light to his dark but at what cost to them
TEMPTED is the third book in Elisabeth Naughton's Eternal
Guardian series and we are finally getting to the heart of
the dark and brooding Demetrius. TEMPTED is creative,
imaginative, and an outright blast to read.
DEMETRIUS-He's the hulking, brooding warrior even his
fellow Guardians avoid. Too dark. Too damaged. And given his
heritage, he knows it's best to keep everyone at arm's
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.
