Felicity your books are a treasure to me. Fascinating tales

Normally I don't care for novellas as much as I do novels, but Awakened by a Demoness was an excellently done novella. I got everything I would have wanted from a full story, compacted into a quick read. It's well written and has some great characters. It's sexy and romantic with a hint of action and a lot of paranormal goodness. Felicity's strong points are definitely her writing and her world building. Asteria was an absolute pleasure to read. She's so sassy and so much fun. She clashes with Rey's goodness and we get some great banter as a result. I enjoyed the fact that we haven't yet seen these characters previously in the series. While I love getting glimpses of all the other characters in the other books, this was refreshing and different. Felicity Heaton is the paranormal romance queen in my opinion. You can't go wrong with one of her books if you are a fan of the genre. I definitely recommend any of her series! I can't believe that AbaD is book # 1o in the series! I hope there are many more stories to come because I am not ready to leave this wonderful world Felicity has created.

With the Eternal Mates series, Felicity Heaton has given us pairings that you would never have thought possible. This is no different as a 1200+ year old demoness and a 'nearly' 500 year old Echelon Angel are put in each others' paths. Will these two fight it out, or will their fight turn passionate? Now, if you're reading this book, the chances are you've read at least some of the Eternal Mates series before and you know by now that things don't always go smoothly for the main couple. Although, to be fair, I think that Rey and Asteria have a harder time than some of the others, especially when you find out that this is a bit more involved than just the mating instinct. Very well written, with a smooth pace, this is the latest gem in the Eternal Mates crown and definitely recommended. Featuring characters not mentioned previously, this can be read as a standalone, but seriously, why miss out on the rest? Merissa Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!

This is the tenth book in the Eternal Mates series. I loved it! Asteria is a wonderful character. I liked her very much. She is one of the few demonesses living in Hell. Having made a serious mistake, she is terrified when she has to face her lord and master, the Devil. Instead of punishing her as she'd expected, he sends her on a mission - to find a half-breed and bring them back to Hell. Unfortunately, she didn't count on meeting an angel from the ranks of the Echelon (highest warrior class) nor being attracted to him. Fifth Commander of the Echelon (or Rey as Asteria names him) is a wonderful alpha character. I liked him a lot too. He is protective, though he can be arrogant and condescending when he wants to be. Sent on a mission to retrieve a half-breed for Heaven, he didn't count on meeting a stubborn, sexy demoness who won't leave him alone. I have been eagerly awaiting the release of this book as I am a huge fan of the Eternal Mates series. I love the world the author has created for the characters to live in. I started reading this book and didn't put it down until I finished it. The author usually introduces new characters in earlier books as cameos. This time, these characters are a complete surprise. I really enjoyed getting to know these two better. The story is told from both Asteria's and Rey's points of view and this gives the reader an insight into their thoughts and feelings. They say opposites attract and Asteria and Rey are the epitome of this saying. They come from different backgrounds (Heaven and Hell) but their attraction is magnetic and instantaneous. I loved Asteria's teasing of Rey, but sometimes wondered if he would cause her serious bodily harm with his righteous indignation and arrogance in the beginning. Luckily, this didn't happen. What did happen left me reeling. There are a few surprises that I never saw coming and, although there wasn't a huge battle scene (I must admit I love those), the action was as intense as always. I must also admit that I felt a little upset that this book wasn't a little longer; it felt like I'd only just started it when I finished. However, the ending had me wondering what will happen next in this series. The story arc seems to be heading towards something cataclysmic, but I guess I shall just have to wait and see. Luckily, there is a small preview of the next book in the series, which has whet my appetite, called Haunted by the King of Death. This is due out in July 2016 and I can't wait to get my hands on it. 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 and demons (and demonesses). - Lynn Worton

*4.5 Stars* What an exciting and fast-paced installment! Awakened by a Demoness had everything I adore in the Eternal Mates series. And even though it was a quick read and revolved around characters I'd not met before, I loved every minute! -! What a feisty heroine. She was formidable but she was fun, too! She has quite the wit and it made for fantastic snarky banter with Rey. - Rey was equally a quick draw with his snark. He was also a lot of fun to watch as he battled his desires and his duty. Also, the Angel has a serious set of cajones...serious. - Satisfying novella - despite it's short length, Awakened by a Demoness had everything I could hope for...a compelling story, a HOT romance, smoking sexy times, action. Heaton certainly delivered with this story. It's not just filler and I liked how it furthered the over-arching plot for the series. - Even though no characters from previous installments made appearances, I didn't feel slighted. Asteria and Rey's story was enough to keep me engaged and entertained. I'm really eager to see what comes next!

AWAKENED BY A DEMONESS is the tenth installment in Felicity Heaton’s adult ETERNAL MATES paranormal/fantasy romance series. This is angel and Fifth Commander of the Echelon ‘Rey’, and Hell’s demon Asteria of the Second Legion’s story line. AWAKENED BY A DEMONESS can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Told from dual third person perspectives (Asteria and Rey) AWAKENED BY A DEMONESS is a story of forbidden love that follows the building relationship between one of Heaven’s angels, and one of Hell’s demons. Asteria and Rey have been sent on assignment by their respective ‘leaders’, each searching for a certain half-breed witch who reveals more than our couple could have imagined. When Asteria finds herself in the land of the Fae, she comes face to face with one of Heaven’s angels-a man who would become her future and potential downfall. The relationship between our couple begins acrimoniously. Our angel, whom Asteria names Rey, is a hunter of demons but for some reason he is unable to destroy the woman with whom he will fall in love. Asteria is a demon; a sassy female who must complete her assignment or face the wrath of Satan-himself. Asteria pushes all of Rey’s buttons, while Rey attempts to keep his distance from the sexy demon. The $ex scenes, although limited in number, are seductive and provocative. AWAKENED BY A DEMONESS, like most of Heaton’s previous intallments, is mostly a narrative where the reader follows the story line through the leading character’s thoughts, ideas and reflections. The series arc has taken on a new direction. There is a war on the horizon between Heaven and Hell, and our couple may have committed themselves to one side more than the other. The premise is an adventure with a few surprises; the characters are colorful, exotic and animated; the romance is intimate and emotional. Felicity Heaton’s AWAKENED BY A DEMONESS will captivate your imagination leaving your breathless for more.

interaction between these two is hot and hostile In Eternal Mates Book 10, Author Felicity Heaton continues to excite and draw the readers in with the antagonistic and sassy Asteria as she spends her time throwing the Fifth Commander of the Echelon off balance. The interaction between these two is hot and hostile throughout the whole book. This story shows what one would see as a no win situation between these two enemies who come to want each other but can not have each other. For me the further I got into the book, I kept asking myself how could this possibly turn out with an angel whose soul job is to kill demons and a demoness who will die if she fails to retrieve the half-breed. I really enjoyed how saucy Asteria kept pushing the Fifth Commander of the Echelon's button (who she named Rey much to his shock). Even when she was concerned she kept up a brave face and I liked that part of her personality. Rey was so stiff and proper that I just couldn't get any feeling for him till about half way through the book which was pure genius on the part of the author. His holier than thou attitude was perfect for him being an angel who destroys evil. At the end wow what a hero he was and the reader will be shocked at the resolution between Rey and Asteria. I give this 5 STARS and recommend it to anyone who love a good Paranormal Romance. An copy was gifted in exchange for an honest review.

SPOILER FREE Angels & Demons! Oh My! Awakened by a Demoness is the tenth installment in the astounding Eternal Mates series by Felicity Heaton. It can easily be read as a stand-a-lone. I was having such bad luck with books, until this one showed up. I devoured this book and couldn’t put it down for the life of me. It had everything I’ve come to love in the Eternal Mates series. Action, adventure, twists, surprises, suspense, captivating unique characters, and sexual tension that was off the charts. Ms. Heaton knows how to weave an intricate and lethal story. Her books are engaging, gripping, and pull together a verity of supernatural species. This story was off and running from the first to the last page. Their was no shortage of surprises and twists that will leave you in aww of this latest installment. We are never given a dull moment; between our leads and their mission. I loved Asteria our Demon, she's sassy and Ray our elite Angel, is rigid. Both where fascinating and when they run across each other, it’s a collision course to something mountainous. Together these two had their issues, making the conversations amusing and the sexual tension fierce. And, what we learn about these two along the way. Well I didn't see that twisting SURPRISE! I also enjoy how the author weaves in other characters. They just pop up on the pages giving us a little taste and showing us a small piece of the picture for that character, who may eventually get a story. It wets the appetite. Leaving you wanting more. Hands down Heaton hit this one out of Hell. Loved it! If you have not picked up this series yet, you need too. Paranormal Romance fans will love the uniqueness of the world, characters, and verity of supernaturals. It’s a must read! Rated: 5 Awakened Stars *Disclaimer: I received a complimentary copy provided by Felicity Heaton via RabidPR with the sole purpose of an honest review. All thoughts, comments and ratings are my own.

What do you get when you mix a Demoness and a male Angel together? In this fascinating story, we get Asteria who is a demon and she is being sent out on a mission by the devil himself. When she lands in the Fae Town, where she thinks the one she is looking for may be she runs into none other than a real life Angel. Something sparks for her but Angel man wants nothing to do with her other than they are both looking for the same person. Asteria learns her angel has no name so she teases him to no end finally calling him what she wants. These two figure out they have more in common then they ever knew. I cannot give you anymore pickup the book and get reading their story. It grabs you from the first chapter all the way to the end. Leaves you wanting so much more. Loved this story. This couple gives us action, suspense, and some real hot romance. I was gifted a copy of this book for an honest review.
