Destined to Crave by Setta Jay

The descendant of two almighty Gods and a Guardian of Earth, Eirykr “Rykr” is born of immense power. Yet, no amount of strength or skill can save him from the curse that tore him away from his first and only love. Turned into a shadowy assassin, he wields the demons bound to his soul with the ruthlessness of a blade. For nearly a decade, he’s searched for the key to free himself, all the while watching over and dangerously craving the beautiful mate who believes she’s driven him away.

Lucy is a born protector, a trait of her Guardian lineage. When her greatest gift was torn from her, leaving a gaping hole in her soul, she refuses to allow a young Rykr, her known mate, to suffer the same dire consequences. Her fear forces her to make a haunting decision and with a grave threat, she crushes him, demanding they part for a decade. Yet, as the years pass she can feel him watching her from the shadows, conjuring wild fantasies that make her ache for him to finally end their torment.

As time ticks toward the decade mark, dark forces rush to descend. Will Rykr’s secret and relentless need to protect Lucy condemn them to a hopeless destiny of constant craving? Or will Lucy bind them for all eternity, no matter the violent threat to her very soul?

Warning: This title contains dirty talk, bad language and erotically charged scenes meant to scorch your eReader.

For any fan of the Guardians series (and I definitely count myself in that gang) this is a no brainer read! For anyone else – this is a brilliant introduction to the world which Ms. Jay has created, and may well set you on the path to reading the original series before the next of this one is released... be warned, seriously addictive, and super, super hot. The worlds that have been created deserve the stories to continue, so I am so happy that they are!

Although this is a novella, it contains a tragic love story; it gives us a step forward with a potential for another major issue for the Guardians to resolve, and inevitably it would seem that Artemis is at the start of all the troubles... Obviously I only want the best for Rykr and Lucy – but I fear that might be far too simple long term!

So happy that this world is back for us to dive into and enjoy!

I love that we now get to read a series about the children of the Guardians of the Realm! The Guardians of the Realm was a fantastic series, and the Descended of Guardians is shaping up to be the same.

Rykr and Lucy are fated mates, they've known since they were young. What they didn't do is allow the mating to take hold. Instead they lived their lives separately, but due to unforeseen circumstances, the original plan to wait may not be in their future.

I really enjoyed reading their back stories, finding out who they are, and hoping for their future. This was such a quick read, it left me wanting more... MUCH more. Not to say this wasn't a complete story, but I love these characters and this world, I will never have enough!

Setta Jay is the author of the popular Guardians of the Realms Series. She's garnered attention and rave reviews in the paranormal romance world for writing smart, slightly innocent heroines and intense alpha males. She loves writing stories that incorporate a strong plot with a heavy dose of heat. Her influences include Judith McNaught who she feels writes a smart heroine to perfection, Gena Showalter, Maya Banks and Lora Leigh.  You can often find her writing compared to JR Ward, but if you are a fan of the Black Dagger Brotherhood be warned that Setta Jay’s novels are more erotic in nature.

Born a California girl, she currently resides in Idaho with her husband of ten plus years who she describes as incredibly sexy and supportive, even when it’s Willy Wednesday on Twitter. ;) 

She loves to hear from readers so feel free to find her on social media or send her an email and she will happily reply.
