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.

"Conniving Greek gods, horrifying demons, vengeful warriors, and true love clash in this sexy, fast-paced paranormal romance series launch." ---Publishers Weekly
Great fantasy--loved the mythological world. The characters are interesting. The story and plot are good too. For mature readers. I am looking forward to the series. Narrator is good also.
One of my favorites.
All of it.
I cannot really pick a favorite.
Yes. I actually even listened to it at work.
The story was good, heroine a bit stupid at times, interesting characters set up for future books.
The narration was the hard part to get used to. Over acting, too long dramatic pauses. I seriously considered ending my read with this book but kept going.
Stick with it, you get used to the narrator.
Say something about yourself!
I have read 3 of these books now and the first sure does grab you and doesn't let go. This is set in present day but earth isn't the only world...there is a secret world only reachable by portal and it is the Argonauts duty to protect the portal and the lives of all it's people from the demons that walk to earth trying to gather souls for Hades...but not everything is how it appears.
The King is dying after several hundred years of power...and his daughter Isadora must marry an Argonaut to secure her crown when he passes...but she has gone missing in the human world and her fiance, who feels nothing for her, is sent to find her, what he finds is a whole lot more than just Isadora, and their world is in for a change!
It took me several times to finally get motivated and to stick it out and finish the book. I have over 800 Audible books, and I have to say this was one of the worst narrator I have heard.
As for the story, I enjoyed it. I thought the story was really good an I liked the history behind the story. If there was a better narrator this would be between 4 to 5 star for me.
I purchased the first two books in the series, when they were on sale, but unfortunately I will not spend my credits to purchase the rest of the series. Sorry Elisabeth Naughton. If you get another Narrator and redo your books I purchase all of them.
I don't want to live in a world without books!
and I still don't know what it's about. It's been sitting in my to read pile forever, but it just won't hold my interest.
Maybe it's the world it's set in. If you like mythology you might be drawn into this. I like mythology, but I don't love it -- so maybe that's the problem.
The story doesn't feel like a cohesive whole, and the world feels too vague. For me, this was a forgettable read. I just hope I didn't use a credit to buy it -- I've had it so long that I don't remember.
Intrigue, plot twists, betrayal, and much much more. This book kept me on my toes all the way through. I would highly recommend this book. Looking forward to the next ones. Keep up the great work.
I've been looking for a new series so I gave Marked a try. I found the story to be interesting and I enjoyed the characters. But the narration was almost unbearable for me. Her speech was very choppy and distracting. Every man except for the king and Hates sounded like caricatures and not people. Not to mention the fact that, all though they are all Argolians, only Theron has an accent, and a bad one at that.
I'm probably not going to continue with this series, because I don't want to hear this narrator again.
A reader of PNR, mysteries and suspense. But huge reader of PNR. I listen and read books.
I have read all of Naughton's books it is a great series but after the first book I quit listening due to the narrator. I would give audible a miss on this one and just read the books...
