Review of Kissed by a Dark Prince (Eternal Mates #1) by @felicityheaton

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? 

Overall Rating:  4.5 Rockin’ ★★★★☆

What could a sensual, sexy alpha male from another realm that just so happens to be an Elf Prince and a human researcher that works for an organization that hunts demons possibly have in common? Author Felicity Heaton addresses this question in Kissed by a Dark Prince.  This is the first book in her Eternal Mates Paranormal Romance Series.  Ms. Heaton intertwines the lives of two very different beings into her spine tingling tale of romance and other worldliness.

It all starts innocently enough on Olivia’s part. She is only doing her job.  So what if she cannot stop herself from staring at the amazing specimen on her autopsy table. He is so beautiful, her heart hurts. He is unlike any other being she has ever come in contact with. When she discovers that he is not dead and he has bound her to him, Oliva does what any human woman would, she fights her attraction.  Now if he will only let her study his species.

How did he end up in the human world? Where is he? Who is the angel standing over him?  Why does he feel so drugged and want her blood so badly? Loren has been fighting his brother, his sworn enemy for a millennia.  Could he be responsible for Loren being in this realm?  Weakened by the attack, he does not think, just reacts and takes the angel’s blood.  Only she is more than just a source to replenish his strength, she is his eternal mate and he has started their bond.  If it is not broken, he will slowly vanquish and his people will suffer at the hands of a madman.  He cannot solidify the bond because his people will never accept a human as his mate.

This is not your typical paranormal romance.  It is filled with action, and not just the sexual kind, but fights between good and evil. Each character struggles with denying themselves and doing the right thing for everyone concerned.  The age old question cannot help but be asked... Will love triumph over all or will evil prevail?
