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.

I had read Ravaged as part of a blog tour and LOVED it so I told myself I had to go back and read the Eternal Guardians Series.
Even better Marked book 1 is currently free on Kindle. With the Audio upgrade you can purchase on your Amazon account I was able to purchase the Audible for just a few bucks. SCORE!
Lets just say I have become and Audio book junkie! I love being able to sit at my desk and type reports while listening to Casey's and Theron's banter. I found myself laughing out loud often. Yes I'm sure I looked derange to my fellow workers but whatever.
The Audible version of Marked was Narrated by Elizabeth Wiley and she did a phenomenal job! The different voices and the accents! I loved it.
Marked was a very fast paced story with a lot of action and of course romance. Although the real nitty gritty didn't happen until almost the end of the book. I guess I've been reading too much erotic lately.
This was a very interesting world built around the Greek Argonauts. I really enjoyed the premise and the fact that entire war is based on a woman scorned is classic! Don't tick off a powerful woman she will make a deadly enemy!
Casey and Theron were so funny at times. Especially when he was trying to smooth his way back into her good graces. OMG I laughed so hard!
I can not wait to continue with the series the next book being Entwined.
