This was a haunting paranormal tale involving the mad elf prince, Vail, and his fated mate, Rosalind. Vail was heartrendingly broken by a sorceress who enslaved him for over 4,000 years, forcing him to kill innocents, fight his brother, and commit unspeakable acts. His character reminded me a lot of Zsadist in [a:J.R. Ward|20248|J.R. Ward|https://d.gr-assets.com/authors/1355342653p2/20248.jpg]'s BDB series. The sexual abuse was particularly difficult to think of, as was the lingering effects it was having on Vail's psyche. You will definitely want to keep some tissues around while you are reading.

Vail has an extreme case of PTSD (or the paranormal equivalent) due to his time of enslavement. Rosalind, a light witch, did an excellent job of gentling Vail out of his extreme aversion to her as a witch. I liked Rosalind very much. She was willing to fight for Vail, and have patience with him even when she thought her days were numbered. She is the first female character of the series that did not get on my nerves.

I put off reading about this book because I didn't think I would like his character... but this is actually my favorite Eternal Mates story so far. The characters had a lot of depth, and generated a strong emotional connection with me. I am happy I kept reading. ( )

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. Vail and Rosalind’s romance begins in a demon dungeon which pretty much says it all—torture, light D/S, and some serious ass whooping ensue.

Madness is one of my absolute favourite character traits, I know this sounds weird, but think about it, there are just SO many directions an author can take with a crazy hero. Heaton does a remarkable job of capturing both sides of Vail’s personality through vocabulary, mood swings, body language, and magic; she made him easy to hate, but also impossible to resist. I loved how detailed the physical descriptions were because by the time I was done reading this book, I could easily see the mad elf prince in my mind’s eye. God how I wanted to run my hands through his blue-black hair, and watch his armor slowly peel itself off of his body…

Rosalind was a nice mix of light & dark, and complimented Vail’s character well. When I first read CLAIMED BY A DEMON KING, I was curious as to why the witch had avoided Loren like he was death incarnate, and I really liked how that tidbit came full circle in this installment. It takes a lot of courage to stand up to a crazy person, or in this case a mad elf prince, but Rosalind manages to hold her own by being just the right amount of salty & sweet. She’s tough when she needs to be while also respecting Vail’s limits, and slowly healing both his body & his mind. Two broken souls fix each other—you don’t get more romantic than that!

I was happy that the author didn’t hold back when it came to the more grim parts of this novel; the torture scenes were deliciously evil and the sex was a nice balance between raw and passionate. This novel isn’t for the squeamish, but you can’t very well tell the story of an anti-hero without getting your hands a little dirty. There were also some impressive fight sequences where the only cure for Vail’s madness seemed to be more demon blood. I enjoyed meeting Fenix, and expect for his and Frayne’s tale to be told at some point in this series. Bleu even makes an appearance (YAY!) along with Loren and Olivia.

Crazy has never looked sexier than in Felicity Heaton’s TEMPTED BY A ROGUE PRINCE! 4.5 Stars ( )
