Fate gave them love… then tore them apart.
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?

As a long time fan of Setta Jay’s Guardian of the Realms series, I was ecstatic to learn that she plans on spin-off novellas in the same world. Even more exciting, we get a glimpse of our favorite characters several years later.
The Descended From Guardians series can be read as a standalone. However, I recommend reading the original series for background details.
In Destined to Crave, we follow Lucy (the daughter of Gregoire and Alyssa – book two) and Rykr (the son of Pothos and Gefn – book 9). Lucy is the firstborn of the guardians, and she has incredible power from birth. Growing up, she helped guide the younger kids, including Rykr. As the get older, they learn that they are destined mates.
Rykr believes himself cursed by darkness, and he continues to push Lucy away, determined to find answers. But, when danger gets too close, Lucy believes that love may be the one thing to save them both.
The push and pull of love is something Ms. Jay excels at writing. She is a master at letting the reader feel the ache and need of her characters. And, the sex scenes are still amazing. I throughly enjoyed the first novella in this spin-off, and I look forward to reading more!
☆Ecstasy Claimed is the second in series of the Guardians of the Realms Series!☆
Gregoire has spent centuries with his brother Guardians fighting for the safety and security of the Realms. Endless decades of battling mixed with bouts of mindless sex to sate his needs. Needs that haven’t truly been fulfilled since she was born. The one destined to be his bonded mate. For the last twenty five years Gregoire has kept his distance giving her time to grow into a female who is capable of handling his intense dominance.
Alyssa has done everything that was expected of her, until the day she finds out she has a mate who has left her unclaimed. Unheard of when mates are rare and coveted. Even worse is the fact that he is the most powerful of her race and a Guardian of the Realms. Furious at the rejection she decides she is now in charge of her life. No more will she allow others to rule her.
Against the backdrop of evil forces that are conspiring to topple the Realms, can Gregoire find his wayward mate before she is taken by corrupt Immortals? Can Alyssa forgive him and learn to exert her own female power while surrendering to his savage passion? And will the two of them be able to forge a mate bond that cannot be severed… or will they be forever cursed with an Ecstasy Unclaimed?
