This was just boring. Not wholly BAD, just boring. So boring that I don't really have anything to say about it. It had a lot of potential, but was just missing...something. Everything was just bland. Not good, not bad, jus... blah. In fact, I am surprised I finished it, actually.

I deserve a skim award.

The secondary characters interested me waaaay more than the main players. And when the sizzle of a side romance overwhelms the main stage, that's never good. Book two sounds interesting, but then

“I will not force it upon you... but I will not let you go so easily. I cannot, Olivia. I will fight to make you see that we were meant for each other. We were born to be together. I will fight until I hold your heart in my hands, and I can only hope you will be gentle with the heart you now hold in yours.”


I finished this book last night, and almost forgot to write the review. Kissed by a Dark Prince has a good start. The book introduced me to the world that has supernatural creatures among us

I don’t think that I’ve ever managed to catch one of Felicity Heaton’s series from the beginning; usually, by the time I discover them she’s already at least a few books in. So, when I crossed paths with Kissed by a Dark Prince I couldn’t resist bumping it up to the top of my reading pile. I loved this book because on top of getting Heaton’s trademark killer writing style it also features a supe that doesn’t often make appearances in paranormal fiction. Elves generally pr

Five reasons to grab your earbuds and listen to Kissed by a Dark Prince

Heaton has long been on my list of authors to try and I quickly saw why readers enjoy her brand of paranormal romance. The world-building is brilliant and fresh. Imagine my surprise when I discovered Elves! I was tickled to find not only FAE in a paranormal fiction but to see them in a completely new light. Heaton put her own spin on these supernatural creatures, from their world, language and mating bonds. Well paced with

I like it well enough, I just didn't love it. I've read this author before and it is pretty much on par with the other books I've read by her. She can be a bit repetitious at times and it can sometimes take a while to warm up to the heroine.

I loved the hero, Loren, though. Loved the way he couldn't control himself around Olivia. What a hoot! (And hot if you love a possessive male who is also a sweetheart.) He was so lonely and I really felt for him. He needed a hug, badly.

I am going to say 4.5 stars for this, only because the heroine was extremely immature, annoying and self-centered for the first half of the book. I think this could have been avoided if the author had revealed to the reader (at least) WHY the heroine acted the way she did earlier in the book. Once you understand her past, her behavior made more sense and she seemed less like a petulant child, and more like an adult woman with some baggage.

The hero was great. The plot was wonderful.

Good start for the series. The world sounds interesting but didn't get a complete start in this book. I figure the world development is probably spread out more.
The main characters were fairly well developed but the side characters could have used more fleshing out.
Overall a good book and I am interested in getting further into the series.

This is the first of Ms Heatons new Eternal Mates series and not to be missed by her fans and new readers alike. Chock full of her usual trade mark sensual paranormal characters and a really interesting storyline for readers to lose themselves in.

Interesting world full of demons, witches, vampires, shifters, elves. Yes elves. With the exception of Orlando Bloom’s Legolas from LOTR, I never had an interest in elves. Needless to say I was a little apprehensive of starting this book. Heaton definitely got my attention. The elf prince and his right hand man Bleu were some sexy bad asses!

It was okay. Not something I'd recommend or something I'd read again. In fact I've already forgotton majority of it except the h was annoying and the H just came off a vanilla pretty boy. At least that's what I think I felt.
The only thing I enjoyed were the side characters. Blue was totally my thing till Thorne showed up and I changed parties before anyone could even say HAWT!

I am a big fan of Ms. Heaton’s Vampire Erotic Theatre Romance series. Since that the series had ended, I have been waiting for another opportunity to read her work. I am so happy that she has a new series that I can follow from the start.

Olivia is a scientist who works for Archangel Labs studying paranormal beings. And the next being on her table is one she is not familiar with. She knows he is different and even more unique is the connection

Why have I put off this series for so long? Oh wait that's because none of the books are at my library and that annoys me. I hate buying a series when I haven't read anything by the author but then I also hate buying the first book and falling in love with it and then going and buying the box set. Wow my whole point of that little rant was that I am very glad I ended up buying the box set because I loved this book.

Loved this!

What a fantastic Paranormal Romance this was! It had everything I could hope for - great worldbuilding, nice mix of supernatural species, great story concept with heartfelt consequences, brilliantly sensual romance scenes between likeable characters - AND none of the stuff that usually drives me ever-so-slightly mad in this genre, like meat-head alpha douchcanoe heroes. In fact, our hero, Loren, was practically perfect in every way (just like Mary Poppins), and Olivia, our leading lad

After a couple months of trying to get through books, and not really loving any of them...now the last handful have been amazing! And the book that kickstarted it all: Kissed by a Dark Prince!

Another paranormal vampire book, yes but also no. Heaton’s work is well known for their steamy scenes. She has a knack for writing characters with chemistry. And what makes Loren so fun is that he finally finds his mate, after centuries, and he knows he needs to give her up. Since he is a elven prince he is

Sexy, blood-drinking fae who find their special lady friend by biting? Yes, please!

Once again, Felicity Heaton delivers on the hunky while pairing him with a lady who can handle the ups and downs of a man who has been battling for centuries to protect his people. Olivia might be a little heartsore when it comes to non-human lovers, but she steps up to the plate when she's needed. Not going to lie, their kisses are pretty steamy. I'm surprised the two of them don't overload the power grid at Arch

I was definitely in the mood for some paranormal when I picked this one up. It delivered for the most part but I wish we could have spent more time in his world vs the human world.

Olivia works for a company who hunts/studies fae and demons. In this book they consider almost everything of fae origins. After a past mess up she's super excited when an unconscious specimen lands on their doorstep and she will be able to prove herself once again.

I can always rely on Felicity Heaton when I'm looking for a hot paranormal romance with engaging characters and she has outdone herself with Kissed by a Dark Prince. This is the first book in her new Eternal Mates series and I'm already looking forward to getting my hands on the next book.

His Beautiful Ki’ara. His Sweet Olivia. His Eternal Mate

I’m a huge fan of Felicity Heaton’s Her Angel Romance Series, so when I saw she was doing another series “Eternal Mates Romance Series” I so jumped on the band wagon. The first book of the series is “Kissed by A Dark Prince” and OMG from the first chapter you are thrown into a world of Elves, Demons, Vampires, Fae, Shifters, Witches and Demon Hunters.

Really enjoyed Felicity Heaton's Kissed by a dark Prince , found it very intriguing , the idea that these supernatural creatures all have a ki'ara Loren found his in Olivia, though I was a bit perplexed over his reasons for breaking the bond , they didn't seem to be that valid so i was very pleased he changed his mind and decided to win Olivia for his life mate. She was a teensy bit stubborn in my opinion If had a super buff pointy eared hotty wanted to take me from the mortal realm
