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?
Thank you Felicity Heaton for a well written book full of thought out characters, layers of mystery, and your signature heat! Goodbye reading slump and hello Kissed by a Dark Prince!
Another new series for Heaton, Eternal Mates kicks off with a hit. Kissed by a Dark Prince introduces another new version of our world, one with (really) ancient beings and a fun twist on where vampires came from. You think you have heard it all huh? Well think again, and who wouldn’t want to meet one of the beings responsible for all the blood suckers? Guess Olivia would have raised her hand, but only in the beginning of the book.
Olivia has made mistakes before with some paranormal creatures. Big mistakes that cost lives. So when she gets wrapped up in Prince Loren and his claim that she is his, she rebells with everything she has. Thankfully we get plenty of Heaton’s steamy pages. She doesn’t give these two a break and it is oh so fun to watch happen.
Past the love story, even though it is wonderful. There is a great puzzle to figure out here involving Loren’s brother. He found his mate and went mad, stark raving mad. And since he is trying to kill Loren that is a great reason for Loren to want to hide Olivia. The whole Loren’s brother going mad thing is brilliant and throws in plenty of secondary characters that you grow attached to.
