A SAHM that reads and reviews romance (all sub genres of romance), Urban Fantasy & Sci-Fi, sometimes Horror, and YA (some sub genres of it).
I've been reading since I was my oldest daughter's age….thanks to R.L. Stine & Christopher Pike…and later on thanks to Anne Rice. Those 3 authors changed my life and I have been obsessed with reading ever since.
I'm playing catch up on Felicity Heaton's Eternal Mates series due to how fast Felicity is pushing out the books for this series. I had a really busy summer that prevented me from reading the books I wanted to read, so I'm playing catch up on one of my favorite series from Felicity. Let's just say reading them back to back is perfect to feed my addiction of this series that Felicity created.
Felicity knows how to write an amazing story with her world building and amazing characters. Tempted by a Rogue Prince is no different from her writing style, in fact she managed to give me more characters to add to my favorites to follow from her.
I have been wanting to read Vail's story since he was introduced in the first book. Poor Vail has been under the control of a witch for 42 centuries and during that time he was at war with his brother. Now he is trying to escape his past, but it's kind of hard when he was captured by demons from the fifth realm. Their king wants Vail to do something for him but Vail doesn't want someone controlling him ever again. He wants to escape and end the pain he has caused with his brother. He will need the help of other prisoners, one that he should hate due her kind, but it's kind of hard to hate her when he has feelings for her.
If you haven't read the first book in the Eternal Mates series, you will miss out on the introduction of Vail into the series. (This is why I highly recommend reading this series in order. You don't want to miss out on certain characters. Felicity has secondary characters get their books later on). But…Felicity sure does an amazing job retelling snippets of what happened in the first book with Vail and his brother in Tempted by a Rogue Prince.
Rosalind is a strong female lead in Tempted by a Rogue Prince and she is tested constantly with Vail due to his issues with witches. He has every right to have issues, but Rosalind is nothing like his captor was. She has such a soft heart and she just wants to help Vail get over his issues. Unfortunately, he is not going to let her in so easily. She has her own issue and that issue may end up being Vail. ***Broken hero…who needs a strong-willed female heroine to get him through it all….but of course there are difficulties with it.
I could go on and on, but I don't want to give anything away. I also could go on and on about how much I adored Tempted by a Rogue Prince. The only reason it's not getting a full 5 moons is because of how sometimes the story drug on in certain parts…but that didn't stop me from continuing. Let's just say the ending had me in tears during the road trip while I was reading Vail's and Rosalind's story. ***Be prepared for the tissues***
I give this book 4.5 moons and highly recommend it to paranormal romance readers out there. Felicity is one author who can push books out like crazy, so be prepared to be able to read stories back to back. =)
