Awakened by a Demoness by Felicity Heaton

Awakened by a Demoness (Eternal Mates Romance Series Book 10)

Felicity Heaton

Asteria of the Second Legion of demons has messed up. Royally. With a capital everything. Certain that her dark lord is about to end her in the most painful way imaginable, she’s stunned when the fallen angel offers her an uncharacteristic shot at redemption—and determined not to fail him again. With her life on the line, she sets out on a mission that sounds easy but proves to be far from it when a hot slice of angelic eye candy comes storming into her life, stirring dangerous desires and tempting her more than any male before him.

Fifth Commander of the Echelon, the highest order of angels in Heaven and those responsible for hunting demons, he will allow nothing to stand in the way of fulfilling the mission he began close to a century ago so he can finally return to his home. On the verge of securing the half-breed he has been hunting, he can almost taste victory—until a sassy demoness struts into his life, awakening wicked needs and forbidden hungers that will test him to his limit.

When their mission brings them on a collision course, can they fight the fierce heat of the passion that blazes between them to claim a victory for their side or will it burn their resistance to ashes and set their hearts on fire with a love both forbidden and eternal?

Here’s more about Possessed by a Dark Warrior, including an excerpt from this paranormal romance novel.

Possessed by a Dark Warrior

A powerful warrior and commander of the dark elf legions, Bleu is a loyal and devoted male, and one who has never failed in anything—except one thing. Love. When an elusive female dragon shifter surfaces in Hell again, giving him a mission to hurl himself into, he gladly returns to his hunt for her and the deadly blade she stole from his prince seven centuries ago, but as he closes in on his prey, fate reveals she is far more than his enemy?

 

Having escaped from the black market arena and her life as a slave, Taryn sets her sights back on the task she began seven hundred years ago when her brother stole a precious sword, but in the three centuries she’s been a captive, everything has changed. Corrupted by a craving for power, her brother has become dangerously obsessed with finding the blade and using it to claim the ultimate treasure—the position of King of Hell.

 

Faced with having to end her beloved twin to stop him from bringing all of Hell to its knees before him, will Taryn be strong enough to use the very blade he seeks against him? And when Bleu finally catches his elusive prey, will he listen to his head as it demands he complete his mission or his heart as it demands he claim his eternal mate?

Possessed by a Dark Warrior is available from Amazon Kindle, Kobo Books, Barnes and Noble Nook, Apple iBooks stores and other retailers. Also available in paperback.

Excerpt

Taryn lowered her gaze to the wrapped sword beside her and rested her hand on the blanket that covered it again, feeling its power resonate through her palm. The sword was all her brother thought about. It was all he desired.

She was risking her life by bringing it here, and by returning to Tenak. If he didn’t kill her on the spot when she revealed herself to him, he might only be luring her into a trap to kill later.

And what if she failed?

What if he took the sword and she couldn’t stop him?

She would have delivered the whole of Hell into his hands.

Gods, she was a fool.

She knew she should take the sword and turn back before he could sense her, but she couldn’t bring herself to do it.

She had sworn to stop her brother seven centuries ago, when she had discovered his plan to steal the sword from the elf kingdom because he viewed the sword as belonging to him, not the elves. It was forged of the blood of their grandfather, one of the strongest dragons to have lived, in ancient times when an elven king had ruled in the mortal realm and her ancestors had been free to fly there. That elven king had captured her grandfather and bled him, pouring his life force into the metal of the blade, and mixing it with a single drop of his own blood.

The blade was power.

The strongest of the elven metals and the strongest blood forged into a single weapon that gave the wielder control over ancient magic contained in the blade. It could cut through any armour or weapon, but its true power was the ability to condense the magic it contained into an arc of pure light that could cut through an enemy horde with one swing.

Taryn had tried to stop him from stealing the sword, but she had failed.

He had taken the blade but she hadn’t given up, and in the end she had managed to steal the blade from him before he could use it.

Now, it was her bait. It was her way of regaining her brother’s trust and stopping him from killing her as payment for her betrayal. She was determined to end everything and she had little time to carry out her plan. She had delayed too long, afraid of facing her brother.

Afraid of facing a world without him.

This was her responsibility though, her duty, and she had to be the one to carry it out.

Because a life in slavery had more appeal, had been better, than a life lived in fear of her brother.

If she didn’t go to him, he would eventually come to her, would leave a path of destruction in his wake as he scoured the realms for her. She had heard the stories. Every few years he ventured out from his valley, razing lands and slaughtering thousands as he hunted for her and the sword.

She had that blood on her hands, but she wouldn’t bear any more. She would end it.

She would use her life in slavery, the one she was trying to leave behind, the memories she wanted to purge, to win Tenak’s trust, pretending that the three centuries of torture she had endured had driven her mad with a need for vengeance, filling her with a thirst to rain dark terror down on all the realms.

Taryn shuddered and curled up, pulling her knees to her chest. She rocked slowly, her eyes locked on the wall across from her, not seeing it as she battled the memories that surged to the surface. She focused on Loke, picturing his face, his bright aquamarine eyes that had shown a wealth of concern when he had handed over the sword and told her of the vision.

Told her of the terrible things her brother had done.

Tenak had grown mad with a hunger for violence, bloodshed and death.

It was that madness that had gripped him that she was going to use to her advantage, making him believe they were infected with the same terrible disease of the mind and they were kindred spirits once more.

Her plan was flawless, but she still couldn’t stop the doubts from creeping in and taking hold of her. She had tried to shake them, but in the end she had realised that nothing she did would silence them, and she had set off on her journey with them echoing in her mind.

Maybe she should have left the sword with Loke.

Her brother was stronger than she was, both in dragon and mortal form. He had killed anyone who had strayed into his kingdom. What made her think that she wouldn’t suffer the same fate?

She was his blood.

His twin.

His other half.

She knew she could make him recognise her, because she had done so in the past. He’d had spells of madness before, back in the days before he had grown obsessed with setting himself up as the ruler of Hell and stealing the sword from the elves to make that happen. She had brought him back to her then, and she could do it again.

She had to be strong and believe in what he had once told her—that he would never hurt her.

He never had.

Even in his darkest rages, he had never raised a claw against her.

If anyone could get close enough to him to end him, it was her. She had to try. If she failed, she wouldn’t be alive to see the horror he would unleash on Hell anyway. He would surely kill her.

Taryn shoved away from that grim thought and refocused on the wall, breathing steadily to centre her mind and steady her heart, and her nerves. She steered her mind towards calmer waters, to thoughts that would soothe her so she could sleep well and gain the rest she needed.

Her head and heart filled with images from better days long past, of her brother and Loke. It had felt good to see Loke again after their centuries apart. He was the only person in Hell she was close to now, the only one she trusted. He meant the world to her, was the brother that Tenak had once been, a very long time ago. Loke had taken care of her for thousands of years, over half of her life, after Tenak had grown distant and obsessed with power.

It was still difficult to think of the things her brother had done in her absence and believe they were true. The male she had grown up with had been gentle, tender and affectionate. How had he grown into one who would lead a legion of dragons to their deaths, promising them power and wealth, and then using them as shields on the battlefield, sending them out first so he could weaken the enemy before claiming victory himself.

Her dearest brother.

She loved him, but since escaping the slavers and learning of the things he had done, she was beginning to wonder whether she only felt that emotion because it was what she should feel for him as her twin. Was she blinded by their bond?

She had truly loved him once, with all of her heart, but she couldn’t condone his plans or the things he had done in their centuries apart, slaughtering masses of demons and fae, and even his own beloved kin.

Taryn closed her eyes and settled her chin on her knees, hugging her legs closer to her chest. Her heart felt heavy behind her breast, weighted with the sins of her brother and her responsibility as his sister, and the black future that awaited her if she succeeded in her mission.

A world without him.

A life alone.

Tears burned hot behind her eyes but she refused them, drawing a deep breath to hold them at bay and blowing it out as she sought calm. She pushed away from her sombre thoughts, not wanting to think about it any more tonight. She just wanted to close her eyes, leave her worries behind for a few short hours, and hopefully, she would feel stronger come the morning.

The comforting arms of sleep drifted around her and he was there waiting for her.

Sinful. Wicked. Beautiful.

The elf.

His sinful smile was in place, those violet eyes shimmering with wicked allure as he gazed at her, casting black magic on her that had her falling ever deeper under his spell.

Taryn shoved away from sleep, forcing herself awake again, afraid of dreaming of the male she knew pursued her. Hunted her. He was always one step behind her in this waking world, but forever one step ahead in the dream one, waiting for her to succumb to the lure of sleep and fall back into his arms. Those strong arms would wrap around her, filling her mind with ridiculous hopes as he drew her against him.

Each dream only strengthened her dragon instincts, making her ache with a need to possess him, to sink her claws into the beautiful male and make him belong to her.

Her finest treasure.

Taryn fought the lure of sleep, the lure of the elf male, but he was too powerful, casting an enchantment over her and drawing her back to him. She was too tired to push him away this time and fell easily into the dream, right into his arms, craving the comfort of him even when she feared he would be the one to kill her.

Just as Loke had seen in his vision.

The dark elf male feathered his fingers across her cheek, the touch so light she shivered from it, and slipped them beneath her chin. He tilted her head up, his violet gaze turning hooded as it dropped to her mouth, filled with delicious intent. She didn’t resist him, didn’t have the strength to deny him this time.

She welcomed the kiss, the tantalising brush of his firm lips across hers that stirred the heat in her veins into an inferno and made her burn for him in her dream, and ache for him in reality.

Hungry for a taste of him.

Her dark warrior.

 

Possessed by a Dark Warrior is available from Amazon Kindle, Kobo Books, Barnes and Noble Nook, Apple iBooks stores and other retailers. Also available in paperback.

My Review:

Firstly I would to give a HUGE thanks to both Heaton and her assistant Carmel, for kindly giving me this opportunity to read and review.
Once again another fantastic instalment to this series, although they can be read individually, they intermingle with one another and it’s always nice to see previous characters playing their part on the storyline.
FINALLY we get Bleu’s story, it feels like we’ve been waiting eternity for this Dark Warriors story… oh and boy is it a good un’
We got a slight glimpse at Taryn in Bitten by a Hellcat and it was obvious this was going to be one hell of a chase for both Taryn & Bleu.
Bleu has remained focused on protecting Prince Loren and their realm from any threat, he’s also spent a long time tacking down a powerful sword that was stolen from his Princes kingdom, funnily enough by a dragon. It’s fair to say that Bleu is obsessed with the sword, and with the dragon who stole it, but it isn’t until he runs into Taryn again that he finally realises why.
Poor Bleu has lusted over several women throughout the Eternal Mates series thinking himself in love with them, he was so desperate to find his mate that he has been looking in all the wrong places and it isn’t until he starts to spend time with Taryn that he realises why the others had fizzled into nothingness.
Taryn is a great character and I loved the way she was so determined to do the right thing as far as her brother was concerned. After escaping her captivity, she tries to right the past due to seven centuries ago when her brother stole Prince Loren’s powerful sword. She needs to stop her brother, who has been corrupted by power, and killing everyone in his path. He will stop at nothing to become the King of Hell.
But will Taryn be strong enough to kill her twin with the very blade he seeks to possess?
Will she be able to evade the elf who has hunted her for centuries?
The romance was very hot, just as I’ve come to expect from this author. And I really liked Bleu and Taryn as a couple. Both were so possessive over each other, and watching them lose control around each other was a lot of fun.
“Yesterday had been the end of their past, a time that would fade into memory, put to rest for eternity.
Today was the start of their forever.”

Having turned his back on his snow leopard pride, Cavanaugh has been counting the days until he’s free of a role he never wanted—one that separated him from his fated female and stands between them. But just days before he’s free to be with her, Eloise walks back into his life and demands he save the pride from the tyrant he left in charge.

EMBRACING THE WOLF

The night Amon revealed that he was an alpha werewolf and she too held the gene in her blood, Kat fled his pack, but no matter how far she runs, she cannot shake the ‘beast’ inside her or the knowledge that one day she will mature into a werewolf—into Amon’s mate. Four years on and now a member of the Werewolf Control Forces, Kat hides in plain sight among their ranks, each night fighting the ‘beast’ inside of her and hunting rogue werewolves with a vengeance. But when she discovers Amon is dangerously close to turning rogue and only she can save him, will she hunt him or will she embrace the wolf to save them both?

Walking into her office, the last thing she expects is to meet Erik, a man who sends her temperature soaring and who resembles her dream guy exactly.

Marked by an Assassin by Felicity Heaton

A snow leopard shifter exiled from his pride twenty years ago, Harbin treads the dark path of life as an assassin, driven by a hunger for vengeance, mercilessly hunting the Archangel members who attacked his kin, murdering his mother and sister.

When a new contract comes in and the mark is a snow leopard shifter, he can’t resist venturing into the mortal world on a personal mission to find out why one from a normally peaceful species now has a price on their head. What he finds in a rundown nightclub isn’t quite what he expects—a beautiful snow leopard female that awakens a fierce hunger inside him.

Aya has spent seventeen years living in London, immersed in the underbelly of the fae world, keeping her head down and her tail out of trouble. But when trouble walks right into her life in the form of a sinfully handsome, dangerous assassin, she is pulled into a whirlwind of events that stir up the nightmares of her past but might just give her a shot at putting those ghosts to rest—if she can resist the dark allure of a male she knows is her fated mate.

Can Harbin and Aya resist the passionate fire that blazes between them as they chase the vengeance they both crave? Or will they surrender to their deepest desires?

Excerpt

 

Aya jerked her chin up, brushed her short black hair back from her face, and strolled into the club with just enough sway in her hips to have a few of the hungrier males in the expansive room looking her way. Colourful lights flashed in time with the pounding tempo of the rock music, a visible beat that spoke to her animal side and had her prowling through the half-filled club, heading towards the bar at the far end. The hazy glass panel at the front of it changed colours, fading through green, yellow, red and blue. Purple lights above the bar washed over the white metal top and the people lining it, telling her that Amanda was in charge tonight. The colour changed depending on who was the boss behind the bar. Her luck was in. Amanda made the best cocktails. Things were already looking up.

She skirted the edge of the dance floor, her eyes raking over every male on it, assessing them in turn, seeking out her first partner. Some of them glanced her way, taking their eyes off their females and giving her their attention instead. She smiled at them all, a range of shifters and fae, and some mortals mixed in. Any one of them would do.

She turned back towards the bar and a group of mortal males broke apart to allow her passage, creating a clear run between her and the bar.

A male there caught her eye.

A vampire.

It wasn’t often she saw their kind around, but he was unmistakable as he lounged casually on a stool, his right arm propped up on the bar behind him. His deep crimson gaze locked on her, sending a thrill coursing through her blood, and she added a little extra sway to her hips and slowed her pace, capturing and holding his focus on her.

He was perfect.

It was little wonder many of the single females in the club were watching him closely.

With neatly styled dark hair, shorn close around the sides but left wild on top, and wicked full lips set in a classically handsome face, with a strong jaw, straight nose and sculpted cheekbones, he was the image of perfection.

The embodiment of masculinity.

The black shirt he wore was slightly open at the collar, revealing defined muscles that hinted at a body to match the perfection of his face.

His sensual lips tilted in a ghost of a smile.

He thought he had found a victim, a walking blood bag who would feed him, and she wasn’t about to tell him how wrong he was about that. Biting was off the agenda. She never allowed fangs near her flesh. The way his gaze dipped, roaming down the line of her throat, and his lips curved further told her he had noticed that, and the way his eyes brightened, burning faintly in the low light, warned he liked it.

She was playing with fire, but she didn’t care. Not tonight.

Tonight was about forgetting, and he was the perfect male to erase the past from her mind.

Aya halted at the bar and flagged the only female member of staff. Amanda. The brunette smiled, nodded and went to work on her drink, mixing her the same potent cocktail she always requested.

The vampire leaned closer, inhaled slowly and growled low in his throat. A shiver bolted through Aya, a flash fire following in its wake, and she slowly slid her gaze towards him. His eyes met and locked with hers, and her breathing came quicker. Vampires were alluring, but this male was something else.

Something more.

Crimson eyes held hers and the sensation of danger she had felt when approaching him increased, but rather than triggering a need to escape his presence, it drew her to him instead. Tonight, she was in the mood for danger and seduction, and this male would give that to her.

“It’s on me,” the male said as the bartender dropped her drink off.

Amanda nodded and moved away to the till.

The vampire pressed two fingers against the base of the martini glass and pushed it across the white bar top to Aya, his charming smile holding.

“You look like you need this,” he murmured and her sensitive hearing picked up his words over the loud thumping music.

Aya held his gaze as she took the drink, swallowed it down in one go and set the glass back down on the bar.

“I need more than this,” she whispered and inched closer to him, so her hip brushed his thigh.

His gaze lowered to where they touched, narrowed and then darted back up to hers. He growled, flashing short fangs, grabbed her right wrist and spun her towards him. Hunger filled his eyes, need that she felt echoing inside her. She had been alone too long too. She needed to lose herself in someone, had to purge the bad memories and fill her head with something to keep them at bay.

That something was him.

The male moved in a blur and she gasped when she was suddenly on the busy dance floor, his hands on her hips and his body swaying against hers in an intoxicating rhythm. It took her a moment to catch up, but the second she did, she threw her arms around his neck and ground against him, rubbing up his thigh as he pressed it between her legs.

Gods, she needed this.

Her heart pounded, the frantic beat drowning out the music as she lost herself in the sway of his body against hers and the rich depths of his eyes. Her instincts whispered again, warning she was playing with fire, and this time she might get burned.

Screw it.

She had already been burned.

No one could burn her worse than he had.

Not even a vampire.

She threw herself into dancing with him, working up a sweat and burning off some energy as they writhed against each other to the beat of the music. She lost track of time as the songs faded from one to another and then another. He turned with her and she frowned briefly as a scar around his neck caught the sudden flash of white light that cascaded over him. It was thin, would be unnoticeable at a distance, but this close to him she could see it and she couldn’t help wondering how he had come to have it.

And how he had survived the wound.

The silvery line stretched from below his left ear, around the front of his throat, over his Adam’s apple where it was thicker and more pronounced, to below his right ear.

It looked as if someone had attempted to cut his head clean off and should have succeeded, but somehow he had escaped with his life.

She wanted to know how, but the way he was staring down at her when she finally drew her gaze away from the scar warned her to hold her tongue.

A couple of males bumped against them on the busy dance floor and the vampire turned crimson eyes on them and curled his lip, flashing a hint of fang that had them backing into the crowd.

He drew her closer, his scent surrounding her and stealing her focus away from the world, narrowing it down to him. She let it overwhelm her, let her guard down and gave herself over to the moment.

“What’s your name?” she hollered over the music.

The man smiled, charming to the last, his eyes glittering dangerously with it. “Night.”

“Aya,” she said without missing a beat, sensing that he was waiting for her to comment on his name. If it was his real one, his parents had a bad sense of humour, but she couldn’t deny that it suited him.

He was as seductive, beautiful and dangerous as the night.

A shiver prickled down her spine, setting her on edge and shattering the hold the vampire had over her.

Her silver-gold gaze drifted beyond him, towards the entrance, and her breath lodged in her throat.

The snow leopard male.

Aya fixed her eyes back on Night, trying to give him all of her attention again as they moved with each other, their bodies locked tight together. Her focus slipped, her eyes wanting to roam back to the other male, drawn to him even when she didn’t want them to be.

She watched him in the corner of her vision as she looked up at the vampire.

The silver-haired male limped as he walked, favouring his right leg, but it didn’t detract from the lethal edge to his gait as he prowled into the club. He was dangerous. Every instinct she possessed fired that warning across her mind, making it impossible to ignore.

He was more dangerous than the vampire grinding against her, pulling her closer to him, dipping his head to course his lips over her exposed shoulder.

The snow leopard’s silver eyes narrowed and she shut hers, blocking him out as she twined her fingers in Night’s dark hair.

Gods.

Her breath left her in a rush as she felt the snow leopard’s eyes fix on her, the intensity of his gaze burning through her, drawing her into opening hers to look at him again. She resisted, tried to focus on the male dancing with her, using all of her will to pretend she couldn’t feel the snow leopard’s gaze drifting down her body as he passed. It lingered on her hips, on the point where the vampire clutched her, his fingers possessively digging into her black jeans as he lifted his head from her shoulder and growled.

A threat if ever she had heard one.

She held her breath, part of her expecting the snow leopard to respond.

He moved on, silent and stealthy, the epitome of a predator. He wouldn’t rise to the threat of a lesser male. He would bide his time, study his opponent, and only make his move once he had discovered a weakness he could exploit and only if he decided he wanted her.

It had been so long since she had been around her own kind that she had forgotten how mature males behaved.

The air left her lungs in a whoosh again, her heart thundering against her breast as the vampire spun her in his arms and pulled her back against his front, grinding against her bottom and leaving her face-to-face with the snow leopard male.

Double gods.

It hit her hard as she stared across the open expanse of room between her and him where he casually took a seat at the bar directly in front of her.

She had chosen the vampire because he was the opposite of this male.

A snow leopard with an unruly shock of silver hair and pure silver eyes set in a ruggedly handsome face that sported numerous pale scars that immediately had her wondering what sort of life he had led.

What sort of Hell had he survived?

It couldn’t be any worse than what she had been through.

He stared straight at her, stealing all of her focus away from the vampire, and this time she couldn’t convince herself to look away. The coldness in his eyes entranced her. A snowy abyss that reminded her of her pride’s village high in the mountains, far away from the mortal world. Stark. Dangerous. Liable to kill you if you set a foot wrong.

Whatever had happened to this male, it had turned him feral, had made him into a killer rather than a male from a species known for their calmness and desire to avoid conflict.

He looked as if he courted danger, sought out conflict, and enjoyed bathing his hands in blood.

His black t-shirt stretched over a firm body, his arms sporting more scars than she could count, and tight black jeans hugged his long lean legs. The fingers of his right hand flexed constantly, a restless movement she had seen many males do when they were on edge. Did he want to fight?

He was injured, but that didn’t make him weak. He looked like the sort of male that would only be more dangerous when wounded.

His eyes remained icy as he shifted in his seat and she would have missed the twist of his lips that betrayed him if she hadn’t been studying him so closely.

More than his leg was injured.

The way he held his left arm in his lap told her that it was wounded too. Her eyes dropped to his feet and narrowed as she spotted the black thick material encasing his left foot, at odds with the leather army boot he wore on his right. A cast. Had he broken his leg?

The vampire skimmed his hands forwards, brushing the apex of her thighs and providing a startling reminder that she wasn’t alone. She gasped and tried to evade his wandering hands, but only ended up pressing harder against his front, rubbing his groin with her backside. He groaned against her shoulder and bit lightly with blunt teeth.

The snow leopard’s eyes burned brighter, a flare of silver shining around his narrowing pupils, as if the sight of the vampire touching her had infuriated him.

Aya didn’t belong to him.

She could do as she damn well pleased.

She turned in Night’s arms, giving him the whole of her attention again as she resumed dancing. He pulled her closer, grinning at her as she rubbed against him.

She was pushing her luck.

It wasn’t the vampire she feared either.

Her primal instincts warned that the snow leopard male was losing his temper and she was heading into dangerous territory.

Aya didn’t want to get the vampire killed and she refused to drag innocents into what would amount to a bloodbath if the snow leopard lost his temper in the busy club. She glanced at the huge digital clock mounted on the black wall above the corridor to the exit. It was time she made her excuses and left.

“I need a drink,” she hollered above the music as it began to fade and broke free of Night’s clutches. “I’ll be right back.”

She heard a faint rumble of disapproval but he didn’t try to stop her as she made a beeline for the bar, heading towards the end furthest from the snow leopard male. She could slip out the back through the door in the corner there, using her normal escape route she took whenever things got a little too hot and heavy for her liking.

The snow leopard tracked her as she made her way through the crowd, his gaze never leaving her.

It was going to be difficult to get away without him noticing.

What if he came after her?

Her pulse accelerated, cold sweat prickling down her spine at the thought of him catching her alone outside. Maybe it was better she slipped out the main exit. Rocky would take care of her, ensuring the male kept his distance. A snow leopard was no match for a bear shifter.

Aya turned her back to the bar, her eyes swinging past the male towards the main exit at the opposite end of the club.

She pushed away from the bar.

Panicked shouts filled the air, a rush of people coming at her confusing her senses as they sharpened and her instincts screamed at her to take the back exit and run. Several males bumped her as they raced in that direction and her eyes widened as she caught sight of the other end of the club.

People dressed in black combat gear surged into the busy room, driving the patrons in a wave towards her.

“Police,” someone shouted.

“Raid,” another yelled as they shoved their way through the throng, heading towards her in an attempt to flee.

Aya shook her head as she stared at the large group of males splitting apart and grabbing any shifter or fae they came across.

They weren’t the police.

They were Archangel hunters.

My Review:

Firstly I would like to thank the lovely Felicity Heaton & Carmel (her assistant) for kindly providing me with a copy of “Marked By An Assassin” to read and review.
I’ve probably said this before and I’ll say it again, Felicity’s work is incredible, I’ve always FLOVED this series, and I get enthralled completely from the beginning.
This story follows Harbin, the dark and sexy brother of Cavanaugh (we met Cavanaugh in Craved By An Alpha, Book #5), we see Harbins stint in the Archangel compound where he was in the cell with Loke (we met Loke in Taken By A Dragon, Book #7), yeah we get to see that but from Harbins point of view, and Aya, a female snow leopard, which unbeknown to Harbin in the beginning, is from the same pride as he….can he remember her?
Assassin
Killer
Murderer….
These are just a few names Harbin goes by, being one of the deadliest and efficient assassins will get you there, but when a hit comes in a form of his species, he can’t not be intrigued…
Who was it?
What did they do to deserve the kill?
There’s only one way to find out, and take the job for himself, he would hunt this person and kill them, end of, no if’s, no but’s…..of course that is until who he learns is the hit he needs to hunt and kill.
“He wasn’t the male she had grown up with, the one who had never stopped smiling and had relished every challenge the mountains had thrown at him, tackling it with glee. He was no longer carefree and full of light and laughter. He was darkness embodies, dangerous and deadly, a shadow of the male he had once been.”
The hunt and kill blocks his pain, his past, his memories, of a time where he betrayed his pride, causing huge amounts of blood to be shed and families to be torn apart.
Harbin and Aya have a history and combine that with what happened in-between the childhood to them becoming full adults you end up with an irresistible male lead and a spitfire heroine
“He growled and kissed her again, his love surrounding her and flowing through her, mingling with hers. The love that they shared as fated mates, bonded forever. A love that would always grown stronger. A love that was eternal.”
Can Harbin and Aya resist the passionate fire that blazes between them?
Will they get the vengeance they both crave?
Or will they surrender to their deepest desires?
Also I’d like to note that Hartt and Fuery were a curious pair, hopefully we’ll see more of them in the future??
Once again, a great addition to the series, and I can only wait for the next instalment.

Her Sinful Angel – Excerpt

Nina groaned and rolled onto her back, tossing her right arm above her head. Rather than the expected soft pillow, it struck something firmly padded. She loosed another muffled moan and frowned, the urge to open her sore eyes and see what she had hit dampened by the riot in her head. Sweat trickled between her breasts and soaked her back where it pressed into the hard whatever it was she was lying on.

Her couch?

She couldn’t remember it being this uncomfortable.

But if it wasn’t her couch, what was it?

More than that, where was she?

Her frown deepened as she tried to recall whether she had gone out after work with her small group of friends, had possibly had a little too much to drink, and had ended up on one of their couches.

She couldn’t remember anything after leaving work for the evening.

A prickling sensation ran down her spine and over her limbs, and she pulled down a sharp breath. She had probably drunk a little too much. It had been a Friday night after all. It wouldn’t be the first time she had taken things too far when attempting to unwind and forget her worries.

A scuffing sound sent another bolt of panic through her bones and she cracked her eyes open, an apology to whichever friend had taken her in balanced on her lips.

Those words fled her when her gaze settled straight on a tall elegantly dressed black-haired man who stood a few feet from her, staring down at her with eyes the colour of pure gold.

Incredible.

But also terrifying.

She didn’t know this man.

Nina shoved herself up on the seat, her damp palms gripping the black velvet and giving her purchase. Every instinct she possessed said to flee, to make an excuse and run like hell, but her head turned violently and all she could do was bite out a moan from between clenched teeth and press her left hand to her forehead.

“You are unwell?” The deep lush male voice washed over her like a soothing balm, easing the pain in her skull and her fear at the same time.

He moved, the soft click of his heels alerting her that he was drawing closer. Her panic went into overdrive again and she scrambled backwards to place some distance between them, hit nothing where the rear of the couch should have been, and landed hard on a cold floor with her legs sticking up in the air.

She stared in surprise at her tights-clad feet and the dark ceiling beyond them, needing a moment to take in what had just happened.

The man appeared above her, his head canting and his golden eyes narrowing as he looked down at her. “Did you hurt yourself?”

Nina quickly shook her head and clutched at the hem of her black skirt, keeping it covering her thighs. She had already made a fool of herself. She didn’t need to go adding flashing her knickers at this man to that. Besides, she still wasn’t sure who he was, how she knew him, or where she was. A flash of panties might be seen as an invitation, and as handsome as this man was, she wasn’t about to invite him between her legs, no matter how long it had been since she had slept with a guy.

She rolled onto her side and scrambled back onto her feet, practically leaping onto them to evade the hand he offered. He stared at his outstretched hand as she smoothed her skirt down, his left eyebrow quirking in a manner that looked a heck of a lot like irritation to her.

When he moved, she expected him to advance towards her.

He retreated instead, backing towards an unlit black marble fireplace against an equally black wall behind him and lowering his hand to his side at the same time.

Nina looked around her as something dawned on her.

Everything in the damned room was black.

Where the hell was she? Some sort of goth retreat?

“There is no need to panic. I do not mean you any harm. You were left in the courtyard of this house and were brought in to keep you safe.”

Nina’s gaze whipped back to the handsome man.

And hell, he was handsome. The sort of man that could have a horde of women swooning with little more than a smile, their knees buckling beneath them. She wasn’t immune to his beauty. She wasn’t sure any woman would be able to say that she was. If they did, they would be a liar.

He oozed wicked sensuality as he stared across the room at her, his golden eyes fixed with hawk-like intensity on hers and his soft lips tilted at the corners into a hint of a smile.

Nina shook her head to rid it of the dangerous thoughts piling up in it and focused on what the man had said.

“Keep me safe?” She frowned at that, another ripple of panic running through her as she tried to guess the answer to that question and feared what he would say.

He toyed with the left cuff of his black shirt and then smoothed the fine sleeve of his black suit jacket over it, carefully adjusting it until it was perfect.

Just like him.

Nina shoved that little voice out of her head, determined to focus on the matter at hand and not the man at hand. She was in a strange place, in a stranger’s house, and he was saying that she was in danger.

“You are safe now,” he said with silken persuasiveness that had her dumbly nodding in agreement even when she didn’t honestly feel safe. “The man who brought you here is gone.”

“A man?” Nina’s eyes widened as she tried to remember what had happened to her but her mind remained blank, refusing to supply anything beyond leaving work for the evening.

He nodded and smiled, and it hit her hard in the chest, knocking the wind from her and sending her head spinning.

Her panic returned full force. “I want to go home.”

The man’s smile held. “I am afraid that is not possible yet, but arrangements will be made for your return. If you tell me where you live, I will pass on the information and they will see to it.”

They? Pass on the information? Was he the master of this house or a servant?

“London… I live in London. Anywhere in London will do.” She figured it couldn’t hurt to tell him the city she was from, but she wasn’t about to hand out her address to him. She still wasn’t sure whether there was another man who had taken her, or whether it was an elaborate lie to throw her off his scent.

What if this man had been the one to take her?

She twisted her hand in her white blouse, tugging at the material, struggling to breathe as a weight pressed down on her chest and she fought the wave of panic that threatened to sweep her away. She had to focus.

Her gaze fell to his hands as he toyed with his cuff again, neatening it, and her eyebrows pinched together. He had black nails. Why did he have black nails? Everything about him screamed businessman or butler, but he had black painted nails. She stared at them, unable to drag her eyes away. They were a bit too polished and impeccable. Were they false nails?

Acrylic?

They distracted her and she lost herself in pondering what they were made from and why he had black nails. It was only when the sensation of his piercing gaze on her faded and he moved his hands behind his back that she snapped back to the room. What was wrong with her today?

She was normally quite focused, but she felt foggy, her mind all over the place and easily lured into concentrating on the smallest things when the bigger picture was demanding her attention. She was starting to get the impression that it wasn’t purely panic altering her behaviour, and that only panicked her further.

“You should breathe.” Those three softly spoken words had her lifting her gaze back to the man’s sober face. The moment their eyes locked, her fear subsided again and the weight on her chest began to dissipate.

Nina breathed slowly but steadily, drawing each breath deep into her lungs.

“Can you recall what happened to you?” he said.

She lowered her eyes to her bare feet, her dark stockings not quite black enough to make them blend into the cool stone floor, and frowned as she searched for an answer to his question.

“I remember leaving work.” Nina looked down at her blouse, at the gash in the soft white material, and wondered for what felt like the hundredth time what had happened between leaving work and waking in this strange room.

Her head ached, throbbing deeply as she struggled to capture the barest sliver of a memory, just one moment that might help her understand what had happened to her. When the ache became a stabbing pain that felt as if someone was pushing a hot needle through her brain, she pressed her hand to her forehead, screwed her eyes shut and grimaced.

A flash of a shadowy figure blasted across her mind.

A man.

Nina raised her chin and opened her eyes, staring across the room at the black-haired man. “You were right. There was a man… but I can’t remember what he looked like.”

She tried but her head hurt so much that her stomach turned, sickness brewing there as the pain intensified. What had the man done to her? Was it drugs? Was that why her brain was so fuzzy?

“Do you know of any reason why someone might want to harm you?” The man took a step towards her and fear clashed with panic again, welling up to stir the sickness in her belly and bring bile up her throat.

She backed off a few steps, shaking her head in denial even though her heart and head screamed that there might be. It was entirely possible that someone was out to hurt her, and that meant that everything the man said had happened, had happened.

Someone had grabbed her, drugged her, and this man or someone from this house had saved her.

Nina’s back hit a wall and she gasped. The man’s eyes narrowed on her and she looked away, afraid he would see the truth in her eyes. She didn’t want him to get into trouble because of her, at least not any more than he already had.

Had he been the one to save her?

Her throat closed again as she thought about that, sure he must have fought the man off in order to help her. She squeezed her eyes shut and pressed her palms against the wall behind her, her fingertips clawing at the smooth surface as she tried to anchor herself in the swirling storm of her emotions.

“I want to leave.” She managed to get the words out but they were quiet, lacking the force and conviction she had wanted to convey in them.

Because part of her didn’t want to leave. Part of her feared what was waiting for her out there. If he had sent someone to take her once, he could send someone again. She had known him too long to believe he would just let her go. She should have been on her guard after rejecting him. She should have expected him to pursue her with the same aggressive intent as he had the time she had fallen in love with him.

Before he had crushed her.

The man’s gaze bore into her, commanding her to open her eyes and look at him, to find the strength to say those words with more conviction so he would let her leave.

She had to protect him.

He didn’t know what he had become involved in by helping her and she didn’t want him to pay for his kindness.

Not as she had paid for hers so many times and in so many ways.

My Review:

Firstly I would like to thank the lovely Felicity & Carmel for kindly providing me with a copy to read and review. I absolutely LOVE this series and have done since the very beginning.

With each new story in this series Heaton takes it that bit one step further. In “Her Sinful Angel” we find out so much more about, Lucifer, the Devils past, and what a Bad-Ass he truly is.

Lucifer is the ultimate bad boy in my eyes.

He is ruthless, cruel, dangerous and oh so sexy!

Imagine being THE first fallen angel.

Mihail, the only angel who might have enough fire power to kill Lucifer I might add, has dumped an unconscious human female right outside Lucifer’s fortress, for what reason is unbeknown to us at this stage.

Is she part of the Angel’s Plan?

Nina remembers little about the circumstances surrounding her abduction and arrival in Hell. She has no idea where she is or why anyone would want to kidnap her, well she has some ideas as to the who, but not the how or why?

Living with the devil is going to be one helluva journey…..

But Lucifer isn’t always as bad as he’s cracked up to be, we see from his interactions with Erin and his grandson have shown us a slightly softer side of him.

Nina arouses feelings in Lucifer that he hasn’t felt for a very long time, and he is instantaneously drawn to her but tries so hard to fight it. However it’s hard to fight with fate and what is meant to be, and the instant attraction and pull that they feel towards each other cannot be denied.

“He saw Nina standing in the valley, surrounded by nature, seemingly at one with the beauty. As if she had been made for that place. For him, She was light with a seed of darkness inside her heart. He was with darkness with a flicker of light.”

Nina sees beyond the monster to the person and is able to come to terms with both of Lucifer’s identities.

These books are imaginative, hot and full of twists and turns with characters you will love.

A huge recommendation for paranormal lovers but to get the best thing to do is start from the beginning with Her Dark Angel, you won’t regret it!

~*~ New Release & Review ~*~ Bitten by a Hellcat (Eternal Mates #6) by Felicity Heaton

23010560

The sole remaining member of the most famous shifter hunter family in history, Owen Nightingale is a mercenary and a man with a secret held in his closely guarded heart, but when a beautiful rare shifter catches his eye and offers him a job, he has the feeling he’ll be the one paying for helping her—with his heart.

Cait is in a spot of trouble with a capital T. A male hellcat has set his sights on claiming her and she’s one kitty who doesn’t want a collar. When she meets a dark, alluring and mysterious hunter, she sees a chance to rid herself of the male, but the price Owen sets and the fierce passion that burns white-hot between them lures her dangerously under his seductive spell.

Can Owen discover the true intent of the male hellcat and stop Cait from falling into his hands? And can Cait retain control as the heat of desire burns between her and Owen, or will a reckless moment seal both of their fates forever?

My Review:
Firstly I want to thank the lovely Carmel & Felicity for kindly providing me with a copy of “Bitten by a Hellcat” to read and review….I’ve probably said this before, but I shall say it again, I love Felicity’s Eternal Mate series….This one can be read as a stand alone though….Owen is a Hunter, mercenary, and has some shocking secrets. One night in the club he sets his sights on Cait. Owen is more than intrigued and something is pulling him to her.  Cait is a Hellcat, which is something new that we have not yet seen. Cait needs help as she is being targeted by a male Hellcat but Cait has no wish to become his mate. She is strong and definitely a fighter.

Once again, Felicity Heaton throws us into the world of these Eternal Mates and the chemistry hits hard and fast
“Owen drew her down to him, settling her back against his chest, and forced himself to let it go, because part of him know why she feared. He knew because he feared it too. He feared she would leave when the job was done and she was free to live her life again. He feared she would be the first woman to truly break his heart. Because he feared he was going to make the ultimate mistake. He was going to fall in love for the first time in his life.”
And I’m kinda smitten with the Hellcats.
They’re wicked cool what with the flames and awesomeness and all.
“He was the first to shake her world though, rocking her confidence and filling her with unsettling eagerness, a need she found difficult to deny. He was the first male to make her want to be the centre of attention. He was the first male to make her crave his eyes on her alone, his tough reserved for her, and his smiles under her sole possession.”
When emotions run high and the claws come out, will Owen and Cait stand victorious or perish in the fight?
LOVE that we got to see a familiar face….I love a bit of Bleu, BUT, seriously, when does he get his own book?!? HINT HINT!
This book had some mystery and intrigue to it as well which was fun and gave it some twists and turns that jumped out at you when you lest expected them to.
The ending was amazing!

~*~ New Release & Review ~*~ Taken by a Dragon (Eternal Mates #7) by Felicity Heaton

23010565

Possessed by a need to save a beautiful Amazon warrior from the vision he witnessed, Loke snatched her from the midst of the battle between the Third and Fifth realm of the demons, and carried her to his home deep in the black mountains of Hell to protect her. But as the fierce little female awakens, he finds she’s anything but grateful, and his dragon instincts roar to life to warn she might be more to him than an enemy—she might be his fated female.

Anais remembers meeting a handsome warrior in the heat of battle, a man who was her enemy but who looked at her with eyes that held dark heat and wicked promises. When she wakes to find that same dragon shifter has taken her captive, desire is the last thing on her mind, but escaping him to return to Archangel, the hunter organisation she works for, sounds less than appealing when he reveals the reason he took her—to stop her from dying.

Can Loke protect Anais from the dangers of his realm and how far will he go to save her from the future he keeps witnessing? Can Anais resist the fierce attraction that burns between them as hot as fire and stay true to Archangel or will her heart be taken by the dragon?

My Review:

Firstly I want to thank the lovely Carmel & Felicity for kindly providing me with a copy of “Taken By A Dragon” to read and review.!

Once again, Felicity Heaton throws us into the world of these Eternal Mates and the chemistry hits hard and fast.

I enjoyed learning about the Dragons of Hell, their culture and instincts. Loke is a Dragon, masculine, powerful, and very intelligent whilst Anais is a fierce warrior, strong willed, and works for Archangel, the hunter organization.

Loke – Mmmmmm…Hot and yummy, he has this fierceness and innocence about him I just adore

 “She admired him for a different reason as he swallowed, his Adam’s apple bobbing, drawing her gaze there. Masculine. Everything about this man screamed masculine. He was powerful. Honed. Intelligent. Beautiful.”

“She couldn’t pretend that she was experiencing simple want born of not having been with a man for over a year. It was desire. Full-blown, no-holes-barred, deep and dangerous desire. The sort of desire she had never experienced before.”

 I loved Loke’s stubbornness and the butting of both heads, which I found quite entertaining.

Something is constantly having visions. Ones which are puzzling, he dose not know why every-time he eliminates a threat there is another in its place. When he finally has the last vision and sees who he must defeat, he has to make the hardest decision he’ll possibly face in his lifetime.

“It was ironic that she didn’t want a prince to save her from a dragon. She wanted a dragon to save her from Hell’s equivalent of a prince.”

The conquest and turmoil that both Anais & Loke go through are touching, there were moments that were touch and go, where, the story could of easily ended before it actually began.

There was a strong connection between these two and it scared them. Both have demons to hide, both are wanting freedom…but can they reach there ever-escaping dream…?

“Dragons fiercely guarded that which they owned. Anais had done the impossible and had taken a dragon’s most precious possession. She had stolen his heart.”

This book had some mystery and intrigue to it as well which was fun and gave it some twists and turns that jumped out at you when you lest expected them to.

The writing flows and the characters are always well developed. The sex is fantastic and hot. The chemistry between Anais & Loke is  just breathtaking.

“Heaven. She had found Heaven in Hell. And she never wanted to leave.”

 You will only be left momentarily left with questions, needing to be answered?

1) When’s Bleu’s book coming?

AND

2) Who is the Angel with no name?

Excerpt

Cavanaugh began swimming back towards her and the resolve she had mustered crumbled again. She trembled on the brink of casting aside all the rules and swimming with him. Part of her demanded she seized this moment with him, before he was taken from her again, but the rest warned that it would only make things worse. Giving herself to him again now would make seeing him with other females unbearable. The knowledge that he could again take something precious and special and treat it as if it was nothing would destroy her.

His gaze swung her way and his expression suddenly went cold.

“Eloise!” He shoved out of the water, spraying it everywhere and startling her.

He rushed across the wet rocks, his footing sure as he sprinted towards her, leaping with agile grace from one boulder to the next, his muscles working hard as he closed the distance between them.

Her eyes widened and she turned slowly, her heart thundering against her breast and cold prickles crawling over the nape of her neck.

She wasn’t alone.

Her eyes met the huge tiger’s ones as it stalked towards her from the edge of the forest, already close enough to pounce.

Her breath hitched and stuck in her throat.

Cavanaugh appeared between her and the tiger. His left hand clamped down on her waist and he pushed her behind him, shielding her with his big body.

He roared at the tiger and silver-grey fur rippled over his powerful shoulders.

His hand flexed against her hip, a silent warning to her, telling her not to move. She kept still, pulse racing at a dizzying pace, her blood running cold in her veins.

Beyond him, the tiger hunkered down, preparing to attack.

Eloise’s heart leaped up to join her breath, lodging in her throat and refusing to come down. Fear blasted through her, the thought that Cavanaugh might have to fight the wild cat turning her blood to ice and filling her with a desperate need to do something in order to protect him. She was powerless though. No match for the beast. It wouldn’t back down if she faced it. It would sense her weakness and attack.

Only Cavanaugh was strong enough to face the animal and make it leave.

The tiger growled, flashing long yellowing canines.

Cavanaugh snarled back at it. She could sense his desire to shift. It ran through her too, but it would be a grave mistake to give in to it. She was bigger in her human form and appeared far more like a threat to the tiger, and so was Cavanaugh. His hand trembled against her hip, cold from the water but filling her with comforting heat. Cavanaugh was strong. A king of beasts.

He could convince the tiger to leave them. She had to believe it, because she couldn’t bear thinking about the other path things might take.

She couldn’t think about Cavanaugh fighting.

It took her back five years, to a night she would never forget and one she didn’t want to remember.

The sound of flesh striking flesh. The scent of blood on the cold air. The anguished bellow. The snow painted crimson. It all whirled in her mind, cranking up her fear, sending her heart into overdrive as she fought for air and to escape the nightmarish vision.

Cavanaugh’s grip on her hip increased, driving away the gruesome vision but not her fear.

She stared up at the back of his head, fighting her need to touch him to reassure herself that he was fine and her need to do something to drive the beast away so he would remain that way.

He breathed hard, his eyes never leaving the tiger. The beast didn’t take its eyes off Cavanaugh either. They stared at each other across the expanse of muddy rocky ground for what felt like hours to her, a silent standoff between two powerful predators. She couldn’t take it. The air was too thick for her to breathe as she waited. She couldn’t get it down into her lungs.

The tiger snarled.

Cavanaugh roared, the sound echoing around the forest and the mountains that rose above it.

Her heart stopped dead when the tiger went lower and she felt sure that it would pounce and Cavanaugh would have to fight it. She grabbed his arm, on the verge of pulling him out of danger.

The big cat turned and slinked back into the forest.

Her heart plunged into her stomach.

“Are you alri—”

Cavanaugh cut her off by turning on his heel and dragging her into his arms, against his damp chest. He wrapped his arms around her, steel bands that bordered on squeezing the air she had managed to get down into her lungs back out of them again.

She wasn’t sure what to think when he pressed his cheek to the side of her head and cupped the back of it with one hand, tunnelling his fingers into the loose waves of her dark hair. She told herself not to do it, but ended up closing her eyes, pressing her hands to his stomach and resting her cheek against his chest, listening to his heart as it pounded against her ear and thundered against her palms.

He was shaking.

“You okay?” he whispered, his lips brushing her forehead.

She nodded, her voice nowhere to be found, driven away by the feel of his arms around her and how tightly he was holding her, as if he had been on the verge of losing something precious to him.

Gods, how she wanted to believe that.

It was all make believe though, a fantasy created by her mind as it interpreted how he had reacted and how he held her.

Wasn’t it?

He pulled away before she could answer that question, casually rubbing the back of his neck. Water dripped from his silver-white hair and rolled down his cheeks, cascading past bright eyes of purest silver. They caught and held her, stirring her feelings back to the surface, the intensity of them making her deeply aware of him—his strength, his power, his dark allure.

She was as lost in him as she had been a decade ago, snared by the spell he cast by focusing with such intensity on her, making her feel as if she was the only other person in his universe.

“Didn’t have problems like that back in London.” He smiled but she saw straight through it.

The tiger had shaken him.

She wouldn’t mention it. She would pretend she hadn’t seen it. He was being strong and so was she, because all she really wanted to do was hold him and reassure herself that he was fine.

He was safe.

His smile faltered, turned strained, and he muttered to himself as he crossed the short span of earth to his backpack and clothes.

He grabbed his t-shirt from inside his fleece and she stared at his chest, at the scars that slashed across them. The sight of them transported her back five years again, to that night when she had felt she had been on the verge of dying. Seeing him fight Stellan that night had almost killed her.

“What’s wrong?” Cavanaugh lowered the t-shirt to his side and approached her, every inch of him tensed and alert, and concern warming his grey eyes. “Is it the tiger?”

She shook her head and let the words tumble from her lips. “I was so frightened when you fought.”

Without thinking, she stroked her fingers across his chest, following the marks that marred his pale skin. They had been so deep at the time, a wound that had forced him to shift back into his human form. They had bled badly, crimson pumping from the three slashes, spilling down his bare stomach and painting the snow. Her hand shook against him, hot tears rising even though she tried to hold them back.

The air thickened and he breathed hard, his intense gaze heating her inside, making her burn at a thousand degrees and ache to lift her eyes to his. She wanted to see that hunger in his eyes again, the heat that she had seen in them before.

The desire.

“Eloise,” he husked, his voice scraping over gravel, stoking her need for him to a startling level, one that had her on the verge of surrendering to it.

Gods, she wanted to surrender to it.

She couldn’t put herself through that much pain again though.

She pulled herself together, snatched her hand back and lowered her head. “I’m sorry.”

“Fuck this shit.” He shoved away from her, swiped his clothes from on top of his backpack and bundled them up in his arms as he strode away from her.

Eloise could only stare at him as he threw his clothes down on the ground around twenty metres from her, on the other side of the camp. He shoved his wet trunks down his legs, leaving him completely bare, and then tugged his dark grey trousers on. Anger laced his scent, born of frustration rather than the adrenaline rush of facing the tiger. He was angry with her. He seemed to be taking it out on his clothes too. She was surprised his boots didn’t split apart at the seams as he pulled them open with force before shoving his feet into them.

She didn’t understand him.

Since the day he had become the pride alpha ten years ago, he hadn’t looked at her once, and he had been gone for five years. He had walked out of her life without as much as a backwards glance. He had made it clear that she had meant nothing to him and what had happened between them had been little more than hormones at play, a need he hadn’t been able to deny.

But since she had walked into the nightclub, he hadn’t taken his eyes off her, and the way he kept acting around her was taking her back beyond those ten years, to a point when they had been closer.

To a time when they had been together.

When the world hadn’t been a dark place, because he had filled it with light.

He paused and looked across the narrow stretch of land that divided them, his grey eyes dark with the hunger she had wanted to see in them again for what felt like forever, the heat that she feared because it awakened something within her too.

Need.

Desire.

Hunger that consumed her.

It was still a three day trek to the village if the weather stayed as it was.

Gods help her but she wasn’t sure she would make it.

No.

She was sure.

She wouldn’t make it.

She was a moth drawn to his flame and it was only a matter of time before he set her on fire and had her burning so hot that it reduced her control to ashes.

My Review:

Firstly I want to thank the lovely Carmel & Felicity for providing me with a copy of Craved By An Alpha to read and review for this blog barrage.

I always look forward to reading this series…..wait no scrap that….I always look forward to reading anything Heaton produces…I’ve loved her work since the beginning.

So with this being book 5 in Heaton’s Eternal Mates series, this is the story of Cavanaugh and Eloise….I felt that you could read this as a standalone…..there wasn’t any cross occurrences with any of the other characters….apart from a sparingly slight glance from Kyter in the beginning….BUT that being said, I would recommend reading the WHOLE series because they are just awesome!

Having to take on the responsibility of his pride, Cavanaugh couldn’t abide the pride rules no longer.

He had found his fated mate, BUT it comes with hurdles to jump.

Being the alpha means he can have his wicked way with a number of higher class women in his pride…this however doesn’t include Eloise…. she’s beneath them…

When a fight takes a turn for the worse, Cavanaugh leaves his pride and seeks shelter elsewhere, licking his open wounds as he goes along…

Heartbroken and alone, Eloise feels betrayed…..but is she?

“She wasn’t sure how she was going to survive the next eight days with him, resisting the old feelings that were coming back to life inside her. She had to do it thought, even if it pained her. Even though she knew that each step she took that brought them closer to the pride was a step further from what she truly wanted. It was a step further away from having him.”

Having to swallow her pride and her feelings Eloise embarks on a journey to bring her rightful Alpha back to the pride, things have to change, killings have to be stopped and her love for said alpha needs to be hidden…

Can Eloise forgive Cavanaugh?

Will she truly find out why he left her all those years ago?

Will Cavanaugh take back his pride?
