New York Times and USA Today Best-Selling Paranormal Romance Author Felicity Heaton presents:

Haunted by the King of Death (Eternal Mates Paranormal Romance Series Book 11)
A ruthless vampire warrior, Grave Van der Garde rules the mercenary Preux Chevaliers with an iron fist, determined to retain his hard-won position as one of the most powerful men in Hell and his reputation as the heartless King of Death. But beneath the cold façade beats the heart of a vampire torn between love and hate, ripped in two directions by a single ethereally beautiful female--his fated phantom mate.

Driven by her phantom instincts, Isla used a spell to make her solid in order to deceive the vampire who killed her sister's demon mate and have revenge on him, condemning him with a single kiss to become a phantom too. But her plan took an unexpected turn when she fell in love with him, and with her new life, and the night she betrayed him shattered both of their hearts. Now, he lives to make her suffer through their connection, one that is fading with them as they begin to slip into the phantom world, and she must face the monster she created if she is to save herself and the vampire she still loves.

With a demon from Grave's past determined to destroy him and everything he holds dear, and the clock ticking down to their inevitable doom, can he and Isla overcome their past and their pride to work together to claim the future they both desire deep in their hearts? Or will death finally catch up with the vampire king and his phantom mate?

I loved this book as much as the other ten before. Felicity has a magic hand when it comes to story telling.

Wow! Emotional! Brillent! Ms. Heaton never has a dull moment when it comes to her books and this one is no exception. Haunted by the King of Death will pull at your heartstrings and take you on an emotional journey. Previously we have seen the “finding of mates”, but Haunted by the King of Death brings us a new element. Here we have a couple that is already mated, but it’s not the Happily Ever After. I was taken on an emotional rollercoaster ride and I suggest having tissues handy. Their were several moments that I ended up with tears in my eyes. OMG, the emotions Gaven goes through will pull at your heart. Isla, WOW, what happens with her I didn’t see coming. Very sad. Gaven and Isla where not expecting to care so much about each other and the reasons for the separation, lets say I wasn’t happy about that situation, but they needed something to force them back together and confront the past. My god they have a lot of issues to work out; before they truly can find what they need in each other. The action/battle scenes are as vivid as always. FHeaton knows how to pull an audience in. I loved meeting Gaven’s family. I did’t realize who he was related too. Fans who have read the Vampire Erotic Theatre series will love the cameos from all those wonderful characters. I did! If you haven’t read the Vampire Erotic Theatre, no worries. I will say I do miss the overall plot/theme which the series started out with. In the first three we have Archangel an organization in the human realm that captures, kills, and studies all the different supernaturals. Their was a lot of promise around that sinister organization. I never really did find out if they where good, bad, in-between, or if it was just certain people in the organization. Now the only consistent things are the realms. I’m still very much in love with this series and their is always something new in each book that comes out. I highly recommend the Eternal Mates series and any of Ms. Heaton’s books. Rated: 4.5 Stars *Disclaimer: I received a complimentary copy provided by Felicity Heaton with the sole purpose of an honest review. All thoughts, comments and ratings are my own.

This series never gets old. I hope there are many more books to come in this series because I never want it to end. It was so interesting to read a story about two characters that were already mates. Their relationship was so interesting to learn about; from revenge to love. I loved that the story came full circle while showing the reader all the dramatic events that unfolded in their full glory. The story is definitely full of powerful emotions, not only love and lust, but revenge and hatred. To have mates that (sort of) despise each other in the beginning was a different dynamic than I've seen before, but it worked. Phantoms are a super cool creature I've never read about before, but am dying to read more about. There's something so alluring about a powerful, ghostly being. That's one of my favorite things about this world. There are so many types of unique paranormal creatures together in once place. Their world is so thought out, it's as if you could step off of the page, into the story. That is the mark of a talented author. And like I've said before, Felicity Heaton is one heck of an author. I hope more of her stories feature phantoms in the future! Pick this one up if you love a good paranormal romance with some sweet and spicy elements. There are an abundance of paranormal creatures present and a HEA!

This is the eleventh book in the Eternal Mates series. I loved it! Isla is a likable character. She was first introduced to the reader in the ninth book, Possessed by a Dark Warrior as Queen Melia's advisor though she is her sister. She also happens to be a phantom who has taken a solid form in order to avenge the death of her sister's husband. However, it doesn't exactly go to plan and she ended up falling for Grave. After breaking her own heart she had her revenge, but things are not that easy and a century later, she finds that they are both fading. Now she needs to convince the vampire to help her stop it. Grave Van der Garde is a strong alpha type character. I really liked him. He is a warrior and leader of the Preux Chevaliers, a mercenary group of vampires living in Hell who fight for the highest bidder. He fell in love with Isla but now he feels betrayal and hate towards her after she left him a century before. Unfortunately, he cannot forget her due to their bond. However, when danger threatens his family he reluctantly agrees to help Isla. I absolutely love the Eternal Mates world. I started to read this book and I was quickly pulled in. It kept me riveted from beginning to end. The story is told through the eyes of Grave and Isla, which gives the reader a chance to see and feel as they do. We also get to meet a few old faces from the Vampirerotique series, since Grave is a cousin to Snow (yum!) and Antoine. It was nice to see the whole lot of them again at the theatre to be honest. We are also introduced to Grave's brothers, Night and Bastian. As they only have cameo roles for the most part, I wonder if they will have their story told one day? The heat between the main characters blazed white hot. There is a fine line between love and hate after all. Their chemistry is explosive and explicit. I must admit that I was surprised at Grave's reaction during one scene when he and Isla met the phantom mage, even though I could understand it. Nevertheless, I am glad he managed to see sense in the end. I love the way the story swept me up and spit me out on a roller coaster ride of emotion. Hell is a dangerous place, and the characters living within it have a strength within them that helps them to survive. However, they also have flaws and fears, which makes them lifelike and relatable. Felicity Heaton has written another fast paced, sexy paranormal romance that I thoroughly enjoyed! I love her fast paced writing style, which flows effortlessly from scene to scene. She is on top of my favourite author's list. I do not recommend this book to younger readers due to the extremely HOT and explicit sexual scenes. However, I highly recommend this book (and series) if you love sexy paranormal romances full of vampires, elves, werewolves, cat shifters, succubi, incubi, angels, dragons, demons and demonesses. - Lynn Worton

It is quite a feat to carry a series to 11 books and keep it entertaining and engaging. Heaton has certainly accomplished that feat. Not only was Haunted by the King of Death entertaining but she managed to keep me captivated with Grave and Isla's story...so captivated I didn't miss my favorite characters from previous installments. That is something I didn't think possible! Grave has always intrigued me. He's a vampire for one thing. But he's also an enigma. I've been eager for his story for awhile...and what a story! I enjoyed getting better acquainted with him, learning his story and finding that he's not simply a cold-hearted mercenary. In Isla, I learned about phantoms in this world - their nature and particular makeup. I warmed immediately to her and understood her earlier actions as well as felt for she's suffered because of those actions. Their story - finding their way back to one another via a threat to them both as well as their families - was... well, I was enraptured. There was so much going on and Heaton wove in her masterfully choreographed fight scenes around solving a problem and protecting family and each other. I found it all utterly exciting! Eternal Mates is one of my favorite series as Heaton keeps me engaged and entertained. I can't wait for the next in this series and, thanks to some of the characters I met here, I'm thinking I need to immerse myself in her Vampirerotique series as well. :D

In Haunted by the King of Death we meet Grave, a vampire, and Isla, a phantom turned corporeal. They are mates and have previously spent time - lots of time - together before Isla did the dirty and betrayed him. This immediately makes Grave a character to sympathise with. Of course, we find out Isla's side of the story too, which makes you change your mind about her. These two need to work together but they have so much hate and distrust to work through first. There is also the small fact of a demon out for revenge and threatening their families. With cameos from the Vampirerotique series, this book has a bunch of characters in it, guaranteed to keep your interest. The storyline is fast-paced and action-filled. With no editing or grammatical errors to disrupt the reading flow, this book is a wonderful addition to the Eternal Mates series. Definitely recommended by me. * I received this book from the author in return for a fair and honest review. * Merissa Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!

What an amazing concept.... a phantom! I loved Isla and her sister's phantom abilities. It is a welcomed changed to the traditional paranormal types. Isla makes a mistake - one she can't take back and I felt all her pain while desperately wanting her to find peace with herself and where her life was going. The author does an amazing job of infusing the reader with her pain as if it were their own. Anger so much anger, the reader will be able to feel it rolling off Grave and it has the effect of added tension in this story keeping it from being just another paranormal. Grave's character is complex and the reader will be given glimpses to what made him the vampire he is today. This story deals with revenge on both Isla and Grave's part and how it causes a chain of events that causes the loss of loved ones and opens up the dialog "Is revenge ever worth it?". Action packed and full of exciting antagonistic interaction between Isla and Grave this book will keep the reader spellbound till the last page. There are parts in this story that brought tears to my eyes and my heart hurt for Grave and Isla. This story has an ending that will certainly have the reader attention. I give this 5 AMAZING STARS and want everyone one to read it! An copy was gifted in exchange for an honest review.

HAUNTED BY THE KING OF DEATH is the eleventh installment in Felicity Heaton’s ETERNAL MATES paranormal romance series. This is vampire warrior Grave Van der Garde, and phantom Isla’s story line. HAUNTED BY THE KING OF DEATH can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Several of the characters from Felicity’s Vampire Erotic Theatre series cross over with the premise of HAUNTED BY THE KING OF DEATH allowing for a new direction in the Eternal Mates series. Told from dual third person perspectives (Grave and Isla) HAUNTED BY THE KING OF DEATH follows the rekindling of the relationship between Grave Van der Garde and his wayward mate Isla. Approximately one hundred years earlier our heroine seduced and cursed the ruthless vampire in retaliation for the murder of her beloved brother in law. For close to a century, Isla and Grave have led separate but connected lives, but a spell once cast to keep Isla in corporeal form begins to fail taking she and Grave, the vampire she has always loved, towards the fade. What ensues is the search for the mage who cast the original spell, and the struggle to keep one step ahead of a demon determined to destroy their lives. Grave is a mercenary who has killed too many men, and revenge and retaliation have landed on his front door threatening everyone he loves. Be forewarned, the violence quotient has increased in this particular story line-not everyone will survive; no one is safe from trauma and death. Once again, like most of the previous story lines in the series, HAUNTED BY THE KING OF DEATH is mostly a narrative where the reader follows the story line through the leading characters’ thoughts and ideas. The interaction between Grave and Isla is limited in the first half of the book but picks up when our couple must embark on a journey to save one another’s life. The relationship between Grave and Isla is tempestuous at best but both begin to realize that they have loved one another since the day they met. The $ex scenes are intimate and intense. Grave needs to reclaim the mate he hasn’t touched in close to one hundred years. There is a large ensemble cast of secondary and supporting characters; a number of the original couples from Felicity’s Vampire Erotic Theatre make an appearance including Snow and Aurora, Payne and Elissa. We are also introduced to Grave’s brothers-Bastien and Night. The remaining member of Isla’s extended family Frey is now in the position of King of the First Realm. HAUNTED BY THE KING OF DEATH is a fast paced, action packed and entertaining story of betrayal, revenge and second chances. The premise is enchanting and imaginative; the characters are colorful, animated and dynamic; the romance is fated by slow to build. Felicity Heaton’s addicting ETERNAL MATES series is a passionate ride through the world of the paranormal

Up until this point, Felicity Heaton’s ETERNAL MATES series has been all about her characters “finding” their one-true-pairing, but HAUNTED BY THE KING OF DEATH approached that goal a bit differently by featuring an already bonded couple that wants absolutely nothing to do with each other. Fate of course has other plans, and Grave & Isla are forced to work together or face deadly consequences. Having not read the six VAMPIRE EROTIC THEATRE volumes, I wasn’t able to fully appreciate the cameo appearances however, it took me very little time to recognize the merits of the Vampirerotique walk-ons, and in doing so I added another stack of this author’s titles to my TBR pile. One secondary in particular caught my attention, and after researching his book it became apparent that I have my work cut out for me because his is the last VET installment. Such hardship! ;) Grave Van der Garde is probably my second favourite protagonist after Bleu, and I loathe owning up to this, but I actually enjoyed his story more than POSSESSED BY A DARK PRINCE. Heroes with a chip on their shoulder make my girlie bits hum, and Heaton outdid herself with her latest vampire lead. As the head of Hell’s most renowned mercenary guild, and sporting the ultimate scorned lover tale, Grave is the undisputed badass of the EM world (and my heart). Many authors use misunderstandings as a crutch to create drama, and in this duo’s case a whopper of a mix-up occurred, yet Grave & Isla’s situation is constructed in such a way that not only is it the driving force behind the plot line, but with over a century of history, it’s completely plausible. Their issues could not have been resolved by a simple conversation, so I never felt frustrated by communication hurdles nor the urge to smack them for ignoring the obvious. Good things come to those who wait, even if you’re HAUNTED BY THE KING OF DEATH.

I have enjoyed every book thus far in this series and wow what a story this one is. Best one yet hands down. We met this couple in a previous book but now they get their own. Isla did something she knew would eventually have dire consequences and now she has lost so much because of it. Grave is one mean vampire but he is now also so much more although he does not want it. A Demon Prince seeking vengeance also is stalking him. Now Grave and his entire family what is left of them are all in danger add to that his mate whom he does not want. Can this couple fight together or will they fade with everyone else? Loved this book. It is well written, we get tons of action, and a whole lot of hot. I was gifted this book for my honest review.
