Even for one of the top assassins in Hell like him, Hartt’s latest contract would have been difficult enough, but there’s a complication—a beautiful, flame-haired, and dangerously tempting complication. Not only is the bewitching female a distraction he doesn’t need—she’s the competition.

Mackenzie’s life hasn’t been easy. Held captive by blood mages who murdered her family, forced to spend every day guarding her secret, and now she lands the biggest contract ever—one that would set her assassin’s guild up as one of the best in Hell—and it turns out her client hasn’t only hired her. He’s hired the top guild in Hell too. Worse, the male she’s up against is wickedly alluring, a dark elf warrior who sets her blood on fire, and the heat that sparks between them is in danger of burning her resolve to take him down to ashes.

It’s a race against time and each other to fulfil the contract by taking out one of the most dangerous men in Hell, a vampire with a name befitting of his bloody history, but who will be the one to claim victory—one of them or the King of Death?

Find out in Scorched by Darkness, an enemies-to-lovers fated mates paranormal romance that will set your heart on fire!


Scorched by Darkness by Felicity Heaton

Scorched by Darkness is book eighteen in the Eternal Mates series by Felicity Heaton.

Another outstanding read in the Eternal Mates series. I always look forward to diving back into this series and world. Felicity Heaton is an amazing writer who can bring the world and characters to life. Each new installment brings me something new to fall in love with.

Oh My Hartt! We finally get his romance. We first meet him way back in the series. He’s the head assassin at the best assassin guild in hell and friends/brother with Fuery. This man kicks-ass and takes no names.

Mackenzie is something else. She can give as good as she gets and matches Hartt in every way. She’s also an assassin, but her guild isn’t on the map, yet. This latest job could put her guild at the top, but theirs competition.

Let’s say the sexual tension is scorching. I loved the build up in the romance department and all the fights which felt like for-play to what is to come. Hartt and Mackenzie are a perfect match in and out of the bedroom.

The job that brought these two together, well it’s more then it seems. We soon learn why they were hired and what the outcome was to be, but the tables get turned.

Scored by Darkness is full of action, nail biting moments, passion and characters that are spellbinding. The story kept me entertained from start to finish. I loved it and can’t wait to dive into the next installment.

Rated: 4 Stars
