Elisabeth Naughton--Marked (Eternal Guardians)

THERON—Dark haired, duty bound and deceptively deadly. He’s the leader of the Argonauts, an elite group of guardians that defends the immortal realm from threats of the Underworld.

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.

This book was a very pleasant surprise. I picked it up because of the Greek Mythology roots and I had never read anything about the Argonauts before. It was a little confusing at times because I didn't understand the world/back story of the Argonauts, but it all falls into place. Naughton fills you in as the story goes along.  And It takes off from the first page and doesn't stop. No slow downs, it just keeps going with action and intensity. I couldn't put it down, I had to know what was going to  happen to Casey and Theron. Theron is not your usual warrior, he has lots of emotions, some he's not used to having, and honor that makes his character one of my new favorites. Casey is swept up in a new world she knows nothing about, but much like her life so far, she seems to roll with each new thing with stubbornness and strength. Their love story is amazing, full of trials, danger, emotions, and a passion Naughton pulls off without falling into filling the pages with a lot of sex (not that i mind, but lots of teasing though!) We gets peeks at the other warriors in Theron's group, and I can't wait to see who's up next......
