Paranormal Romance – Magic – Elves – Adult

Publication: Aug. 9, 2014


An elf prince on the verge of losing himself to the darkness, Vail is maddened by the forty-two centuries he was under the control of a witch and forced to war with his brother. Now, he roams Hell seeking an escape from his terrible past and the heads of all who bear magic. When demons of the Fifth Realm capture him, he sees a chance to end his existence, but when he wakes in a cell to a beautiful female, he finds not death but his only shot at salvation—his true fated mate.

Captured by the enemy of the Third Realm when the war ended, Rosalind has spent months in the cells of the Fifth Realm with her magic bound, forced to heal the new king’s demon warriors, and haunted by the lives she has taken. When she’s brought to heal an unconscious man, she discovers her only hope of escape has come in the form of her worst nightmare and the first part of a prediction that might spell her doom—a devastatingly handsome and dangerous dark elf prince.

Unwilling to fall under the control of anyone ever again, Vail must escape before the Fifth King can use him as a pawn in a deadly game of revenge, but he cannot leave without Rosalind, the woman who looks at him with dark desire in her stunning eyes and awakens a fierce hunger in his heart. A witch who drives him mad with need even as the darkness within whispers she will enslave him too.

Can Rosalind escape her fate as they embark on a journey fraught with danger and resist the temptation of her rogue elf prince? And can Vail overcome the memories that madden him in order to seize his chance for salvation and the heart of his fated female forever?

ARC Review: Tempted by a Rouge Prince

Tempted by a Rouge Prince is book three in the Eternal Mates series by Felicity Heaton. Another Amazing Spectacular read by Ms. Heaton! I have been waiting on the edge of my seat for Vail’s tail ever since he was introduced in Kissed by a Dark Prince. I was blown away by the emotional, heart-wrenching, action packed adventure. We start off just after the second book Claimed by a Demon King and the battle that took place in Hell. 

Vail, our Mad Elf Prince, brother to Loren. He was tricked and used by a dark witch several millennia ago. Now he suffers emotional and mental issues. You see throughout the series that he is trying so hard to fight the witch who has him under her control. His battle to find some peace for himself is just starting. Ms. Heaton did an amazing job showing us the battle inside. The conflicting emotions and desires that go through Vail were well done and I was crying at times just from how much I felt for him.

Rosalind, a witch, Vail’s mate his Little Wild Rose as he calls her. She has been avoiding any contact with the elves; because of a prediction her grandmother gave her. This has made her a hermit (sorta) unable to live her life; because of the fear of the prediction. In Claimed by a Demon King she ends up helping in the battle, but in doing so ends up a prisoner to those she fought and now battles nightmares of what she did in the war. Ms. Heaton did a fabulous job with Rosalind. I was not sure if she would be strong enough to help Vail, but she finally faces her fear to embrace life and love. I enjoyed the struggles she went through both physical and emotional. 

I just love the Eternal Mates series. Ms. Heaton does an amazing job of bring together everything a PNR needs. The writing style flows easily and the story pulls you in making it so hard to put the book down. Remarkable plot and character development. The action battle scenes where so real and detailed. The sex was fantastic and the connection the character’s make are well matched. 

If you have not picked this series up yet, I highly recommend you do. This is a must read for any PNR fans. Ms. Heaton is an unbelievable writer and all her her works are worth trying out.

  1. I’ve read this series. I think it is great. To me, it reads more like UF than PNR and that is not a bad thing. There is just a ton of action in these stories, so in my eyes, it fits more in the UF genre, but has a new couple with each book. I still need to try some of the other series by this author.

    • You might be right Melanie it does seam to be more UF then PNR. It could be labeled both UF & PNR. This one had lots of action. Felicity is a fabulous author. I hope you get a chance to check out her other works. I’ve still only read her VET series and hope to get to the others sometime soon. I know most of the first books in her series are FREE.
