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 realisations, can Sable place her duty before her heart? Or will she surrender to her deepest desires and be claimed by a demon king?
I really enjoyed book 1, Kissed by a Dark Prince in the new Eternal Mates series by Heaton but I LOVED the follow book, Claimed by a Demon King. Why? Let me list the things I loved …
1. Virgin hero
2. Kick ass heroine
3. SMOKING dreams shared between hero and heroine
4. Hotter than hell sex between hero and heroine
5. Snarky humor
6. Great lead characters
7. Awesome secondary characters
We meant Throne and Sable in Kissed by a Dark Prince and by the ending it looked like Heaton was sitting us up for a love triangle between Throne, Sable and Bleu. Not true, so don’t let any dislike of that troupe stop you from reading Claimed by a Demon King. Yes the two fine specimen of male hotness fight over Sable’s attention but it’s not a true love triangle. (Although I was hoping for a little 3-way action but that didn’t happen.)
Claimed by a Demon King takes about a month after Kissed by a Dark Prince, both Sable and Throne can’t stop thinking about the other. Throne knew at first sight that Sable was his fated mate but with his inexperience with females he didn’t know how to win over Sable. He knew that the usual demon way of taking their fated one (even by force) would not win Sable’s heart and that’s what he wanted most. So he backed off and focused on the upcoming war his people were about to enter with other demon king.
Sable has never been in a relationship. She preferred to have her fun with men and then move on. Her growing feelings for Throne was creeping her out and she would not admit to them even to herself. But she saw what her BFF Olivia had with her fated mate, Loren and was jealous of it at times and wondered what it would be like to have that kind of relationship for her very own.
Sable and her team of fighters go with the elves lead by Loren to the Hell realm to help Throne’s army of demons in the war. Sable has to remind herself she is there to lead her team and not get hot and sweaty with the demon king she can’t get off of her mind.
Claimed by a Demon King is full of battles on and off the battlefield. Loved how Throne and Sable came together for their HEA and I can’t wait to read more about some of the characters we’ve meant along the way. I have my fingers crossed at Grave, Vail (I’ve a pretty good idea who your fated mate is) and Bleu get their own books. And I’d love to see one about a naughty kidnapping dragon.
After reading and seeing some of the VET series characters having cameos I need to read the final book in that series about Snow.
Fans of Kresley Cole’s demons in the Immortals After Dark series will love Thorne.
After 17 years I've finally finished my BA in English (no I do not want to be a teacher). Before majoring in English I would not have touched anything labeled "classic", but I have enjoyed a few along the way in my college career.
While I hated to read growing up, I am now an avid book reader and audiobook listener. I love rejecting reality one book at a time. I only read fiction within my favorite (at least to date) genres which include: most romance (paranormal, contemporary, D/s, BDSM, M/M)Urban Fantasy, and a few YA (mostly PNR or UF from favorite adult authors, but I'm slowly stepping out of my comfort zone after enjoying a few contemporary YA novels in adolescent literature class I took).
