Tempted by a Rogue Prince
Okay so I loved this!
Hands down best of the three!
I love a tortured hero and have been waiting for this book ever since Vail was introduced!
Felicity has definitely managed to do him justice and she wrote him a Ki'ara so perfect for him there's no doubt she's his one and only.
I don't have words guys, if you love a tortured hero as much as I do, you have got to read this!
3.75 stars and hope it only goes higher.
WOW Vail is two parts Zsadist (BDB) and one part Uilleam MacRieve (IAD).
Vail is the "mad elf prince" striking fear in all the paranormal world. But Vail is not "mad" by choice. He was driven to it over centuries of being under the spell of a dark witch. He was forced to kill people. Much like Zsadist in the BDB series by J.R. Ward, Vail was sexually abused, well really he was repeatedly raped by the dark witch. It's no wonder why Vail would hate all witche ...more
He only knew the darker side of emotions. He knew pain and rage, fury and hatred. They filled him and ruled him, made him who he was now.”
“Little Wild Rose. His ki’ara. His breath lodged in his throat, trapped there by her beauty and brightness. She was too bri ...more
ARC Review: Tempted by a Rouge Prince
Tempted by a Rouge Prince is book three in the Eternal Mates series by Felicity Heaton. Another Amazing Spectacular read by Ms. Heaton! I have been waiting on the edge of my seat for Vail’s tail ever since he was introduced in Kissed by a Dark Prince. I was blown away by the emotional, heart-wrenching, action packed adventure. We start off just after the second book Claimed by a Demon King and the battle that took place in Hell.
Vail, o ...more
Gah, my heart is breaking for both Vail and Rosalind. I cannot believe someone actually topped Snow....
I have been excited for Vail’s book since this series had started. When I inquired about him, I was promised, no, I was warned that Vail is a tortured hero and that it will be a dark story. Frankly, I was doubtful that I’d like him since he had brought on so much destruction. I will admit that I was wrong and I admit that I loved Vail and his story more than I expected. I suppose, I shoul ...more
The first 2 books were really great reads and I have fallen hard for this series and it's characters.
I've been looking forward to Vail's book since we first encountered him in Kissed by a Dark Prince (his brother Loren's story)
Vail is a very different animal from his brother, with a haunted past and many many issues, he ...more
Even though I’m saving myself for Bleu, I do love a good anti-hero, and you don’t get more tortured than Felicity Heaton’s mad elf prince, Vail. TEMPTED BY A ROGUE PRINCE was the darkest installment yet in the ETERNAL MATES series, and the perfect read for all of us bad boy fan girls! I highly recommend that you read these novels in order because only then will you be able to fully appreciate how long it has taken the protagonist to finally reach this level of rock bottom ...more
This fast paced and smooth flowing plot keeps readers spellbound with action, suspense, drama and romance. The author brings the story to life with well written scenes and details that capture the imagination and the well orchestrated drama and suspense draw the reader deeper into the story even as the action and magic add spice and excitement. ...more
Intense, heart-warming and heart-breaking all in one. This book is so difficult to review while avoiding spoilers. Therefore, I'll say that you should definitely start at the beginning with the first book. This book can be read as a standalone, but then you'll miss the build-up to the events of this one, and that would be a shame.
Am I horrible for saying that I loved seeing Vail so broken? I knew his healing wouldn't come quickly or easily, but I really felt for him throughout this ...more
I loved the other books before this one, and I'm glad I don’t have to choose which is my favorite. It will go on my favorite list with the others.
Amazingly Ms Heatons writing allowed Vail to come to life, almost right off the page. You can sense so much of him, his rage, fear, his violence, but most of all his want and his need. You wont be able to not open your heart to him, you will want to embrace him and protect him.
Our sweet heroine... Rosalind, wow... loved everything abou ...more
Tempted by a Rogue Prince is the third book in Felicity Heaton's Eternal Mates series and once again she raises the bar even higher with an unforgettable romance between a dark and tortured hero and the one woman who can heal him.And then she had felt the darkness in him.
The agony. The
I absolutely love paranormal romance, and Felicity Heaton is definitely a go-to author for that genre for me. Her stories are so well written and complex (and freaking hot too), and her latest release is no different. Tempted by a Rogue Prince is the third book in the Eternal Mates series, a series I’ve come to love more and more with each book I read. I had high expectations for this book because, hello, it’s VAIL’S book, and Felicity Heaton absolutely di ...more
This is book three in the Eternal Mates series. Vail is our severally tortured hero of this story. We met him in book one where he had spent thousands of years under the control of an evil witch and was forced to be at war with his brother and the rest of the elves. This witch had tortured him and left him without much of his sanity. Needless to say, he doesn't have much use for witches now tha ...more
I have read both books in Ms Heaton's Eternal Mates Series so far and loved them. I've been super looking forward to this one because I completely fell for Vail from his first mention in the series. I've been anxiously awaiting his story. This book did not disappoint.
The story follows on from the end of Claimed by a Demon King. Vail and our heroine Rosalind have both been capture ...more
Vail has lived over 4000 years as the puppet of an evil witch. It's cost him his family, his home, his people, his sanity. He feels like he's destined to wander Hell - alone and battling the darkness that wants to consume him - in an attempt to escape it all.
Rosalind is a prisoner in the Fifth Realm ...more
We knew from the previous books that Vail was troubled, having been tortured by a witch pretending to be his mate...and as some called him 'mad elf Prince'. I was brought to tears reading of his torture at said witches hands, and just thinking about ...more
An addicting Paranormal Romance.
This is book 3 in the Eternal Mates Series.
What is it with these books that Felicity Heaton writes? She draws you in and grabs your Heart..... And Soul and doesn't let go!
This was another unputdownable book and I am truly loving this series, there's a feast of Species and who knew Elves could be so delectably Yummy!
I try to never give away too much of the story because I know other Reviewers will give a little extra but what I will say about his book is the ma ...more
Which isn't to say all witches are bad, but Vail certainly doesn't have a winning streak when it comes to them. Also, the fact his prophecy was used against him and he suffered for it for forty two centuries... tha ...more
Vail was literally insane. I tried to understand where he was coming from. He has spent thousands of years of captivity under a dark witch who controlled his mind and body, forcing him to go against everyone he loves and murder thousands of innocents over the years, so it's understandable that he has come out of that a madman.
But! In my eyes that doesn't excuse the emotional and physical abuse he put the heroine through. He spent a good portion of the book threatening to kill her becaus ...more
4.5 out of 5 Stars
Tempted by a Rogue Prince is a dark and wonderful instalment to Felicity Heaton's Eternal Mates Series. Vail and Rosalind's relationship is filled with passion and fear. It's this combination that makes this book explosive and tension fuelled.
Book three starts off a little slower than Felicity Heaton's usual books. In retrospect, this was reflective of the madness of Vail's character. His anxiety and survival while in isolation takes time to unravel, as does the ...more
I liked the premise of this story. Just, eh, the whole struggle with inner demons was so overwhelming. It was confusing at times, especially from Vail's point of view. The last 25% of the book I LOVED. Once we got everything out in the air, the story flowed much better. I wished the book could have been a bit longer so we can see a "more sane" Vail interact with Rosalind. Even with it's faults (for me, at least) I liked the story and characters. This is a really good series and I can' ...more

By Robin Manor - See all my reviews
Held together only by a strong sense of survival and the distant light of his brother's love, Vail battles between sanity and madness. At times I get the feeling he finds some escape through the madness as his reality of the last several thousand years has been so horrific. This deep abyss of madness was caused by a witch who had not only enslaved vail, but had him turn violently against his own kind a ...more
