Delia has changed. No longer a carefree young woman, she is now a nightmare in the making. After her abduction and torture she unwillingly houses two beasts and more power than she can ever contain on her own. She can never be released. Nor can she have the male who gives her any semblance of sanity in her new world, the one she craves more than her own freedom.
With unknown enemies on the horizon and yet another God awakened will they lose themselves in the madness of an impossible mating? Or will they come together in searing ecstasy, bonding them in a way that sets them both free?
Warning: Sexually explicit content (beds actually get burned down) and alpha males and females with bad language.
The delicious Drake (who has always been my favourite) has found his mate but boy is that messed up! Then add in the missing god Apollo, and I was so perplexed at his disappearance at the end of the last book, did he go willingly or not? Not to mention the crazy antics of Nastia, an immortal assassin, and Sander the Phoenix, oh yes, this series is quickly becoming addictive.
So in Searing Ecstasy, we see Drake trying to find a way to save Delia who had reappeared at the end of Binding Ecstasy; but her body is so messed up that it might take a god to save her. Now that just happens to be Drakes plan and he wakes up Hades, but that’s just like opening a whole new can of worms!
The gods are in stasis for a very good reason and trusting one of them might be the very worst thing these guardians can do! Yes, there is light at the end of the tunnel for this couple but for me, it was everything around them that felt interesting. I was disappointed with Drake's romance but engrossed in what Hades was up to and then of course there's our favourite, Phoenix, with his quirky courtship ideas (new Bugatti anyone?).
I'm still on the fence about the new immortals and have no idea how this arc will pan out. Also I'd almost forgotten about a certain guardian lying unconscious and then bam! the author does something that has left me boggle eyed! There's a twist I never saw coming.
If you enjoy sinfully saucy stories then this series is a must read.
