Review: Tempted by a Rogue Prince (Eternal Mates #3) by Felicity Heaton

An elf prince on the verge of losing himself to the darkness, Vail is maddened by the forty-two centuries he was under the control of a witch and forced to war with his brother. Now, he roams Hell seeking an escape from his terrible past and the heads of all who bear magic. When demons of the Fifth Realm capture him, he sees a chance to end his existence, but when he wakes in a cell to a beautiful female, he finds not death but his only shot at salvation—his true fated mate.

Captured by the enemy of the Third Realm when the war ended, Rosalind has spent months in the cells of the Fifth Realm with her magic bound, forced to heal the new king’s demon warriors, and haunted by the lives she has taken. When she’s brought to heal an unconscious man, she discovers her only hope of escape has come in the form of her worst nightmare and the first part of a prediction that might spell her doom—a devastatingly handsome and dangerous dark elf prince.

Unwilling to fall under the control of anyone ever again, Vail must escape before the Fifth King can use him as a pawn in a deadly game of revenge, but he cannot leave without Rosalind, the woman who looks at him with dark desire in her stunning eyes and awakens a fierce hunger in his heart. A witch who drives him mad with need even as the darkness within whispers she will enslave him too.

Can Rosalind escape her fate as they embark on a journey fraught with danger and resist the temptation of her rogue elf prince? And can Vail overcome the memories that madden him in order to seize his chance for salvation and the heart of his fated female forever?

Tempted by a Rogue Prince is the third entry into the Eternal Mates series and boy is it good! At last Vail’s story! So much about him had been mentioned in the previous book I just had to know what happened to him. Take that as a hint, while Tempted by a Rogue Prince works well as a stand-alone, you really should read the first two books in the series so you can understand why Vail’s story is so important.

Anyhoo…we finally get to learn Vail’s story and it’s not a pretty one. Under the control of a horrid witch, forced to do terrible things for centuries…I’d be crazy, too. Getting captured by the Third Realm is probably the best thing that has happened to him. There in the dungeons, he meets the captured witch, Rosalind. Her life hasn’t been a picnic either. She is also captured, is forced to heal king’s demon warriors while her powers are bound. These two have less of a love/hate thing and more of a attract/repel. They can sense a connection to each other but after Vail’s history, the last thing he wants to be with is a witch. There’s a nice slow build-up between them so no immediate jumping in the sack. But when they finally do…very nice.

I do like how there is a nice progression to the story. Everything builds up slowly all coming to an ending that I found most satisfying. The secondary characters from the previous books are a nice fill as well as a new character, Fenix. I do hope the next book is about him. A most satisfying series for any PNR fan. I eagerly await the next book in this series to come out.
