Kissed by a Dark Prince

Paranormal Romance 

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?

I’ve been a fan of Felicity Heaton since reading her VET (Vampire Erotic Theater) series. She knows how to pull an audience in and gives us sexy vampires, demons, angels, and now elves. 

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.

  1. Gah! Here’s another writer that I have yet to read. I feel like the loser kid in the front of the school bus, LOL. I’m surrounded by great reviews, and this book in particular sounds fabulous–I love Elves, so I’m really interested in a new spin on them, and I’m also a major sucker for characters fighting against an inevitable relationship. It just makes it so much more fun (IMO)! Great review 🙂

    • Oh Jessica don’t feel bad. Carmel feed me my new reading addition. Thou I know how you feel. Their is so much great stuff out their it’s hard to decided what to read and what not. I at least try to stick with Authors I enjoy, but it’s so hard cause I see some great reviews on some interesting books and I’m right back to feeling like I’m behind.

  2. I loved Felicity’s elves too, just wait until you meet her demons in the next book! Thanks for finding the time to read/review Kissed by a Dark Prince Angela! 🙂
