    Felicity Heaton is one of my very favorite paranormal romance au

    Felicity Heaton is one of my very favorite paranormal romance authors because she always has fresh, exciting stories to be told. Kissed by a Dark Prince is her new series and I am already addicted. I am excited that there will be a next book.

    The characters are so interesting and I can't wait to find out what happens next!

    Loren is a wonderful hero and Olivia is lovable. Add in demons, witches, hunters, fated mates, OH MY!

    Follow the Heaton brick road into this new realm and be ready to say, there is no place like home.... because when you start this book you will want to be home with your Kindle because you wont want to stop reading!!

    Fabulous book Felicity!

    **4.5 Stars**

    Kissed by a Dark Prince not only chronicles the lives of Olivia and Loren following their fateful meeting but also sets up the world this series inhabits, as well as explaining how the bond between eternal mates works. We learn that the world is inhabited by shifters, vampires, fae, and demons. Oh, and elves. Vampires are essentially evil but everyone else seems to co-exist relatively peacefully. There is a human organization, Archangel, that hunts supernaturals. I'm not sure their mission exactly, but Olivia seeks knowledge of the others in order to better relations between species. When Loren surreptitiously lands on Olivia's doorstep, a species Olivia has never seen, she's excited.

    Olivia is a doctor and as such studies the other species brought into Archangel. She has had a few bad experiences though and feels a desperate need to redeem herself with her colleagues. Loren seems like the perfect place to start - until he bites her and sets into motion something that will change her life forever.

    Loren is an elf prince and comes around with no recollection of how he got to Archangel. What he does know is that he's in need of blood and this beautiful woman hovering over him will suit just fine. But the first taste of her blood unleashes something he was unprepared for...something he'd stopped hoping he'd find.

    I liked both Olivia and Loren. Olivia is smart, tenacious and stubborn. She's always thinking, calculating, considering - and I liked that about her. Of course, I wished she'd stopped over-thinking at a few points and had just gone with her heart. But I understood her reasoning. Loren is strong, loyal almost to a fault, kind, and protective. He's sacrificed so much to protect  his people, never giving up hope of finding his mate. He and Olivia share compassion for others and complemented one another well. It took awhile for Olivia to see their link wasn't just about the bond.

    We also meet Loren's brother, Vail, his second in command, Bleu, Olivia's best friend, Sable, and others. Each character is well defined and I'm anxious for their stories. They added depth, and often humor, to the story.

    I will admit that parts of the story dragged for me. I tired of Olivia's waffling on whether or not she wanted to complete the bond with Loren. Of course, the waffling enabled them to better get to know one another and realize they had developed real feelings, so it had purpose. The last 25% though, the action and tension really ramped up and I was flying through the pages. I was shocked at the turn of events - and just as relieved by them as Loren and Olivia were.

    Kissed by a Dark Prince was every bit as good as I was hoping it would be. I'm looking forward to losing myself in this world again and seeing who's up next in finding their eternal mate.

    Can I just take a minute to swoon over this book? Seriously! Fel

    Can I just take a minute to swoon over this book? Seriously! Felicity Heaton's Her Angel series is one of my all-time favorites, so I knew going into this book I would love it. I didn't anticipate how much I would love it. I have a feeling the Eternal Mates series might just give the Her Angel series a run for its money!




    As always with this author, the world building, plot, and writing are out of this world amazing. The reader will just fall into the story. Because there is so much going on- action, romance, conflict- the story plays out like a movie, completely sucking you in and transporting you someplace else. A place where there are demons, vampires, and Elves. 




    I am naming Heaton the Queen of Paranormal romance because she really dominates this genre, never disappointing with her fabulous stories and always finding new and creative ways to make her next one even better than the last! 




    Loren, the Elven prince, was a great hero. He's everything a great romance hero should be- strong, smart, loyal, and protective- with the added bonus of being a total hottie. And a prince. I really admired his loyalty to his brother. The strong need to help him and keep him alive despite all that he had done.




    But what I really loved was his mate, Olivia. A character like Loren really needed a woman that meshed perfectly with him and Olivia did just that. I loved that Olivia was a scientist- a really good one- with a troubled past. The fact that she had to overcome her demons in order to accept Loren as her mate and that the reader gets to see her try and reject him really made me like her as the lead character. She goes against a lot of the typical female characters and didn't automatically jump into bed with him. 




    Add in amazingly combustible chemistry between the two main characters, a wide range of different species of secondary characters, an evil witch set out to cause all kinds of trouble, and you have one hell of a book! ;)




    Overall, Kissed by a Dark Prince is a spectacular novel and a wonderful start to a new series. I am very much looking forward to reading the rest of the series and falling in love with these new characters.

    'Kissed by a Dark Prince' is the first book in a new series fro

    'Kissed by a Dark Prince' is the first book in a new series from Felicity Heaton. I have been (not so) patiently waiting for this book since Felicity first mentioned her ideas for the series some time ago.
    Set in London around the same time as the VET books, the Eternal Mates series introduces another world to explore and is full of new and interesting paranormal species - this delights me as PNR is my favourite genre!

    The heroine, Olivia, is a female scientist who works with a demon hunting organisation called 'Archangel' - there she studies paranormal specimens to identify & discover more about them.
    Loren, our Hero is an elf prince who mysteriously turns up literally on the doorstep of the building Olivia works in.
    Waking up in a strange place, injured and out of sorts Loren needs blood to help him heal. Disoriented and with the allure of her blood too much to resist, Loren bites Olivia and a mating bond between the 2 of them starts to form.
    We soon discover there are unknown, darker forces at work and Olivia & Loren meeting is more than just a coincidence........

    As ever, Felicity brings us an action packed, fast paced story with a deliciously hot hero, a feisty heroine, mystery, some twists & turns, a bit of humour and a healthy dose of heat & passion.

    Throughout the story we are introduced to Sable, a demon hunter who works with Olivia, and Bleu who is Loren's best friend & right hand man - I <3 Bleu and can't wait to read more about him....
    There's a few other characters involved in Loren & Olivia's story new & old (see if you can spot a surprise appearance by someone from VET!! - can't wait to see who else pops up in future books!) ;-) but rather than tell you about them all I'm gonna leave you to meet them yourself - I'm really looking forward to catching up with them all in their own stories!!

    I am a huge fan of Felicity's work and have loved all that I've read. Kissed by a Dark Prince is a definite 5* hit for me and I'm sure the rest of The Eternal Mates series is gonna be just as fantastic!!!

    Fans of Felicity's books will love this new world - and if you haven't yet read anything by Felicity, grab yourself a copy of 'Kissed' and see what you've been missing!!!
