Olivia thinks it’s her lucky night when a dangerously handsome unconscious fae ends up on her inspection table. He’s her chance to redeem herself with her employer, the demon-hunting organisation, Archangel. But when the tall, dark and deadly immortal warrior awakes, she gets much more than she bargained for…
Attacked by his enemy in the elf kingdom, the last thing Prince Loren expects when he comes around is a beautiful angel watching over him and medical technology of the mortal realm. Hazy from his injuries, all he can focus on is the pulse ticking in her throat and the sweet allure of her blood.
One single bite reveals she is his eternal mate, triggering a bond between them that will leave him weakened until it is complete… or broken, and pulling Olivia into the crossfire of his ancient feud.
To protect his people and his mate from the machinations of a madman, Loren must risk everything by working with Olivia at Archangel to find a way to break the bond blossoming between them.
But will Loren be strong enough to place duty before desire and give up the one thing he has waited millennia for and craves above all others—his eternal mate? And will Olivia be able to resist the incredible heat that burns between them and the temptation of her dark prince’s kiss?
Kissed by a Dark Prince is book one in Felicity Heaton’s Eternal Mates series. The first 3/4 felt a little slow too me. Even with the slow start I could not put this one down. The plot keeps us on our toes with lots of action, suspense, surprises we don’t see coming and romance.
Olivia is strong willed and curious, with a past that makes it hard for her to open up. Loren is our dark prince who must do what is right for his people even if it means giving up the one thing he has waited so long for. They both have their reasons for fighting the mating, so it took a little longer for Olivia and Loren to start talking and building the relationship, but once they did, things got hot hot hot.
The Elves are an interesting race. I was intrigued with them and how they are portrayed as blood drinkers. I liked the mythology used to explain the difference between Vampires and Elves. That one is new to me. I have not read any other Elf book that shows them in this light. The supporting characters also captured my attention ensureing that I want to know more about them. The fight scenes were amazing. The details in the action make it believable and easy to picture. I loved the finally battle scene!
Kissed by a Dark Prince was a fantastic read in Felicity Heaton’s new Eternal Mates series. I look forward to reading more of her work and exploring the world and characters she has created. I recommend this book to Paranormal Romance readers who love action with their romance.
Claimed by a Demon King (Eternal Mates, #2)
The moment the demon King Thorne of the Third Realm set eyes on the mortal huntress Sable, he knew she was his fated one. The fiery, dangerous female awakened hungers he had never experienced before, a dark craving and passion that has consumed him in their time apart. As the lunar cycle wanes, she enters his world again and nothing will stand in the way of him claiming his forever with her—not the relentless assault from the Fifth Realm or the dark elf male determined to seduce her out of his grasp. Intent on achieving the coveted position of commander at Archangel, Sable leads her small team into the dark underworld and the Third Realm, to a war where her allies are the very creatures she normally hunts—vampires, werewolves, and demons. Her eagerness to lead the deadly mission has everything to do with winning her promotion, and nothing to do with the kingdom’s brash, lethally seductive demon king—a king who stirred fierce desire and wildfire heat in her with just a look and an innocent touch when they first met, and has been in her wicked dreams ever since. As the gathering storm between rivals unleashes irresistible passion that flares white-hot and the heat of the battle brings life-shattering realisations, can Sable place her duty before her heart? Or will she surrender to her deepest desires and be claimed by a demon king? (Goodreads)
