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?

Lexi's Thoughts:
Vail...*dreamy sigh*. This mad elf prince has held this reader captive since the first moment he appeared on page and hissed at Lauren. 
Heaton painted Vail as the ultimate evil, destroying his own people and seeking his brother’s death. But she also gave him a brother who couldn’t accept his madness. Lauren fought Vail but couldn’t kill him or accept that there remained nothing good in his soul. Crazy brother right? Vicious killing machine bent on attacking everything near him...until we glimpse the pain and torture in his eyes when he tries to resist the sorceress’s command. 

That is what will hook you. Vail’s raw emotions. And in Tempted by a Rogue Prince Heaton delivers Vail’s heart on a platter, every gory exposed inch and you will not be able to keep yourself from shedding a tear and wanting to patch him back up. 

Lucky for Vail, the new demon king whose dungeon he is residing in has another captive, one who has healing powers and happens to be his mate. The light sorceress from Claimed by a Demon King who helps King Thorne win, Rosalind. She has such a tender heart and repeatedly puts herself in the way of danger to help/heal Vail through the beatings both she and Vail receive at the hands of the demons. 

The torture is unbearable. Heaton breaks her characters and then gives them hope in the form of an escape. Rosalind, Vail and the incubus Fenix flee the demon castle. Fenix, the cursed incubus you will next fall in love with, gives Rosalind a warning before teleporting away. That leaves the newly mated couple on their own.

The plot follows Vail and Rosalind through the Fifth realm ending with a confrontation with the angered new Demon King. Lovely plot, tightly written, but it is the emotions and healing that Heaton brings to her characters that make this a stand out book. The strength Vail and Rosalind show will make you want to cheer. And when they finally get their HEA, this is a romance, you will close your book with a smile.
