CLAIMED BY A DEMON KING (Eternal Mates #2) by Felicity E. Heaton
ABOUT THE BOOK: Release Date February 22, 2014
The moment the demon King Thorne of the Third Realm set eyes on the mortal huntress Sable, he knew she was his fated one. The fiery, dangerous female awakened hungers he had never experienced before, a dark craving and passion that has consumed him in their time apart. As the lunar cycle wanes, she enters his world again and nothing will stand in the way of him claiming his forever with her—not the relentless assault from the Fifth Realm or the dark elf male determined to seduce her out of his grasp.
Intent on achieving the coveted position of commander at Archangel, Sable leads her small team into the dark underworld and the Third Realm, to a war where her allies are the very creatures she normally hunts—vampires, werewolves, and demons. Her eagerness to lead the deadly mission has everything to do with winning her promotion, and nothing to do with the kingdom’s brash, lethally seductive demon king—a king who stirred fierce desire and wildfire heat in her with just a look and an innocent touch when they first met, and has been in her wicked dreams ever since.
As the gathering storm between rivals unleashes irresistible passion that flares white-hot and the heat of the battle brings life-shattering realizations, can Sable place her duty before her heart? Or will she surrender to her deepest desires and be claimed by a demon king?
REVIEW: CLAIMED BY A DEMON KING is the second instalment in Felicity E Heaton’s adult, paranormal series Eternal Mates-a spin off from her Vampire Erotic Theatre series. With that in mind, the reader is re-introduced to several of the VET characters when our heroine Sable goes on the hunt for the identity of her biological father. This is Sable and Thorne’s storyline who met in book 1-Kissed by a Dark Prince.
The premise follows Sable, an employee and, up and coming commander with Archangel Industry (a human research centre for the paranormal) as she and her team are ordered to the Third Realm of Hell to aid King Thorne in a war against the Fifth Realm and King Frayne. With Sable’s ‘ability’ to detect demons, she is pulled into a world where she will come face to face with the Third Realm Demon King Thorne who takes center stage in all of her erotic dreams and fantasies. Sable is a strong, powerful and capable female who may have finally met her match both on and off the field.
As the war escalates and approaches the Third Realm, the relationship between Thorne and Sable builds. Thorne knows that Sable is his mate, but Sable continues to push away the notion believing that demons and humans are not compatible. Little do they know that not everything and everyone are as they appear to be. There is a reason for Sable’s ability to detect demons and one that they hope to uncover.
CLAIMED BY A DEMON KING is a story of mystery and suspense; friendship and love; discrimination and hatred. It is also a story where a lonely demon king has waited for his mate for hundreds of years and fears that a war may forever end his chances at happiness when his mate is the commander of the allied army and must face down the enemy in a war to the death.
The secondary characters are colorful and plenty. Many of the previous storyline characters play a major role in Claimed By A Demon King including Elf Prince Loren and his mate Olivia; Loren’s second in command Bleu; and several members of the Archangel team. We are also introduced to several vampires and shifters; dragons and witches; and a body walking entity that knows no boundaries or fear.
Felicity Heaton pulls the reader into a colorful storyline where the Realms of Hell meet the modern world; where the alpha male is ready to die to protect his mate; and where the female mate is ready to hand over both her heart and her soul to the man ( or demon) that she loves. Claimed By A Demon King is a love story that crosses the boundary between Heaven and Hell; where love is blind and the demons feel pain and heartbreak as much as any other man.

Eternal Mates #1
by Felicity Heaton
Genre: contemporary, paranormal, fantasy, erotic, adult, romance
Release Date: November 30, 2013
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 complete… 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?
Claimed by a Demon King – Excerpt
A ripple of heat travelled through Thorne’s muscles, sending a shiver of awareness through him.
He was turning before he knew it, his gaze seeking her, drawn to his little female.
When it found her, his blood chilled and then burned for a different reason.
She was beautiful, resplendent with her long black hair twirled and clasped at the back of her head and her lips rosy, but she did not wear a dress of mortal fashion.
The long flowing blue garment reached her ankles, the sheer layers parting as she walked, revealing glimpses of bare thigh through the gauzy material that made him want to growl at every male in the room who dared to look upon his female. In contrast to the loose skirt, the top was tight, the blue bands of material held in place by elaborate arcs and swirls of brushed silver metal that acted as a corset over them.
An elven dress.
The wretched elf male beside her raked an appreciative glance over her body, blatant hunger in his purple eyes.
Thorne’s lips peeled back off his fangs and his horns curled in front of his ears.
He stormed through the crowd, shoving demon, elf, vampire and werewolf out of his path, picking up speed as he neared her and the male. Sable’s golden eyes met his, a smile rising onto her lips. It faded when he growled low in his throat. She tensed, her eyes going wide, and backed off a step. He pushed the last obstacle aside and seized Bleu by his throat, barely registering Sable’s gasp, and kicked forwards, using all of his speed to slam the male against the stone wall behind her.
Thorne’s muscles ached, beginning to expand as his fury took hold of him, ruling his actions. His dragon-like wings burst from his back and tore through his shirt and his muscles strained against the now-tight white material. His horns grew, curling around themselves and flaring forwards into deadly points. His fangs descended, his lower canines sharpening to match them.
He heaved a breath and roared in Bleu’s face as he hauled the male up the wall so his legs dangled above the floor.
Rage burned in his blood, the sounds around him drowned out by the rush of it in his veins and the thunderous beat of his heart.
Bleu coolly stared down at him.
Thorne cursed him for it when a familiar burn raced through him. Sable. She stared at him.
He slid his gaze to his right, looking at her out of the corner of his eye. Her horrified expression spoke of her desire to separate them.
To protect the elf.
Thorne tightened his grip on Bleu’s throat and snarled in the demon tongue, “She is not your ki’ara. You would know your fated female and would be unable to ignore the urge to fight me. How dare you dress her as your ki’ara!”
Bleu’s hand calmly encircled his wrist and he looked as if he would allow his armour to transform his fingers into claws and wrest Thorne’s hand from his throat, yet he made no move to fight him.
Thorne needed to fight.
His blood pumped hard and hot, and his mind screamed with fury over what this male had dared to do with his fated one. His female.
He wanted to throw him across the room, to rain blows down upon him until his temper flared and he fought back. He wanted to snag the female with his free hand, curl his claws over the metal bodice of her dress and rip the offending garment from her body.
He yearned to kiss her until she knew that she belonged to him.
He could do none of those things.
