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?

Claimed by a Demon King is Felicity Heaton’s second installment in her new Eternal Mates Series.  Claimed by a Demon King is full of strong characters and fantastic story telling.

In all honesty Claimed by a Demon King if full of things I typically don’t like.  I normally shy away from Demon stories because they have a high religious undertone to them and that is not something I enjoy.  Claimed by a Demon King also has the whole “fated mate” thing that is in so many paranormal romances.  I know many of us get board with this theme.  Yet, Heaton is a true master at her craft.  I fucking loved this story and am addicted to this series!

Although the demons do exist, I don’t feel that the tone is at all religious in any way.  The Demons are not inherently good or evil anymore than humans.  So far there is no back story about an entity damning them – well – other than a curse that was put upon them by some crazy person.   More endearing is the fact that Heaton’s alphas are not ass holes.  Not that they are perfect, just not the alpha-holes that just make me want to shake some authors.  I also loved the imagery of the different types of paranormal beings.  Dragon shifters, witches, fae, and more.  Every one of them is described with impeccable clarity.

The chemistry between Sable and King Thorne is quite beautiful.  I loved the way this Demon King could accept a strong and kick-ass women like Sable and not feel the need to hold her back.  He wanted her by his side and not hidden away so he could protect her.  What an incredibly refreshing dynamic!   The story line beyond the romance is incredibly strong and equal to the romance elements.  When you add this all together I come up with nothing but Aces, baby!  Felicity Heaton is a self published author that everyone should read and  I cannot wait to get my hands on the next book in this series!

I rate Claimed by a Demon King 5 out of 5 Bullets!

    Felicity has a way of making even the most overdone elements in PNR feel fresh again. She truly is the man… err… I mean woman. Hehe I’m glad you enjoyed Thorne and Sable’s story! I CAN’T WAIT for Bleu’s tale.
