This was a wonderful paranormal read. Heaton manages to create a world that feels real and encompasses just about every super natural creature you could want. This first book in the Eternal Mates series opens up a cast of characters that you can easily imagine expanding the series further. Although the main characters of Loren and Olivia are the focus of book one, Heaton leads the reader into wanting to experience more of Bleu, Sable and the Demon King (book 2), and even Kyter the jaguar shifter who owns the night club for the other worldly creatures in London.
This is a very well developed story with plenty of substance as well as steaminess. If you are looking for a paranormal series to start that hasn't already gotten too far ahead of you but holds lots of promise for many more stories, pick up a copy of this very reasonably priced eBook. It's an enjoyable read with good dialogue and plot development that pulls you through without any lulls or valleys.
**I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.**
Olivia thinks it’s her lucky night when a dangerously handsome unconscious fae ends up on her inspection table. He’s her chance to redeem herself with her employer, the demon-hunting organisation, Archangel. But when the tall, dark and deadly immortal warrior awakes, she gets much more than she bargained for…
Attacked by his enemy in the elf kingdom, the last thing Prince Loren expects when he comes around is a beautiful angel watching over him and medical technology of the mortal realm. Hazy from his injuries, all he can focus on is the pulse ticking in her throat and the sweet allure of her blood.
One single bite reveals she is his eternal mate, triggering a bond between them that will leave him weakened until it is completed… or broken, and pulling Olivia into the crossfire of his ancient feud.
To protect his people and his mate from the machinations of a madman, Loren must risk everything by working with Olivia at Archangel to find a way to break the bond blossoming between them.
But will Loren be strong enough to place duty before desire and give up the one thing he has waited millennia for and craves above all others—his eternal mate? And will Olivia be able to resist the incredible heat that burns between them and the temptation of her dark prince’s kiss?
