Summary

An elf prince on the verge of losing himself to the darkness, Vail is maddened by the 42 centuries he was under the control of a witch and forced to war with his brother. Now he roams hell seeking an escape from his terrible past and the heads of all who bear magic. When demons of the Fifth Realm capture him, he sees a chance to end his existence, but when he wakes in a cell to a beautiful female, he finds not death but his only shot at salvation - his true fated mate.

Captured by the enemy of the Third Realm when the war ended, Rosalind has spent months in the cells of the Fifth Realm with her magic bound, forced to heal the new king's demon warriors, and haunted by the lives she has taken. When she's brought to heal an unconscious man, she discovers her only hope of escape has come in the form of her worst nightmare and the first part of a prediction that might spell her doom - a devastatingly handsome and dangerous dark elf prince.

Unwilling to fall under the control of anyone ever again, Vail must escape before the Fifth King can use him as a pawn in a deadly game of revenge, but he cannot leave without Rosalind, the woman who looks at him with dark desire in her stunning eyes and awakens a fierce hunger in his heart. A witch who drives him mad with need even as the darkness within whispers she will enslave him, too. Can Rosalind escape her fate as they embark on a journey fraught with danger and resist the temptation of her rogue elf prince? And can Vail overcome the memories that madden him in order to seize his chance for salvation and the heart of his fated female forever?

DON'T JUDGE A PERSON BY THEIR FRIENDS/FAMILY

Another fantastic book by the said Felicity Heaton
it's another great read of fighting between the Demons & Elves
This time we're seeing 'Mad Elf Prince' Vial as the main character & meeting his lifemate Rosalind the good witch. BOTH have the trepidations of their past & predictions of what/will happen to them. But what a great pair they make 😘

The book is ok but the narrator is terrible

Is there anything you would change about this book?

This book isn't super exciting and certainly not as good as the first two books. However, it does need to be told if you will continue with the series.

If you’ve listened to books by Felicity Heaton before, how does this one compare?

This book is not as exciting and is poorly narrated.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The main issue I have is with this narrator. He sounds like he's reached the ends of sentences when he hasn't. He punctuates sentences in very strange ways and it's actually driving me crazy. The next book is narrated by the same woman who did the first two books so I may listen to that one, but this man narrators several of the stories. Unless something changes, I won't be buying any more books he narrates.

Do you think Tempted by a Rogue Prince needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

no

DISAPPOINTED IN THIS ONE

Chapters 1, 2 & 3 were what I expected...action, suspense, thrills. Chapters 4 thru 10, for me, were irritating they were inner dialogue and turmoil about Vail's captivity with the Witch. Story picks up at Chapter 11 but it's pace is slow building on Vail's and Rosalind's relationship. Vail's angst and turmoil went on way too long for me.

Aaron Abano gave a great performance.

Great book!

I saw the negative comments on this book before buying it and must say I did enjoy it a lot. It's a different narrator than the first two books but he is very good on his job. Of course not to expect soft feminine sweet voices like a female narrator would but I liked his version.

The interaction between the leads here starts in the worst possible of circumstances and thats why I liked the book.

Vail the mad elf prince...and the tender witch Rosalind needed to go through a real hell on the book but if you enjoy seeing how Heaton builds her mates it will worth it. It's violent, and tragic yes but the arc for these two had to be, I think that in the previous two books they were a little more softer when taking on "Violence" and for the tortured fae we needed to know more why he was such a mess, that meaning listening to some disturbing scenes in his past.

I recommend this audiobook, but just beware of a little violent scenes if you are a little sensitive. That's all.

Very good

This was such a good book. The progress of the mad prince to a mostly sane prince was heart rouching

I would not be tempted By a Rouge Prince

Would you try another book from Felicity Heaton and/or Aaron Abano?

Maybe if there is nothing better to listen to the story and plot would have to be much better than this.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

Basically what happens to the witch Rosalind how she got out of enemy hands and how the prediction of her death by an elf prince came into being.

The least interesting part was the traveling through enemy territory, Vale showed very little change or growth in character even right up to the end, same with Rosalind the witch. Short conversations, little action except one battle scene near the end.

How could the performance have been better?

It is hard for a performance to have done better when the story I felt lacked so much in excitement and Character growth. I believe the narrator did the best he could for this story.

What would have made this romance irresistible?

More growth within the characters, not just a quick rut here and there. I felt no real development gradual or otherwise. Basically it was "MY female hungers" then Vale has trouble dealing with his own nightmares finally ruts the heck out of his Kiara before breaking down and running off. Rosalind is given little snips to try and work out this damaged Elvin male before her, with what she gave his trust should have come out more to share more parts of his old life and in those moments show parts of the man he was before the evil witch stole his life from him.

Any additional comments?

I beleive people should still listen to it as it basically completes your view of the first three books in the series but don't get your hopes up for a hot steamy romance.

Tempted By a Rogue Prince, By Felicity Heaton

This story broke my heart. Dam good writing. Two people who needed each more, to fix what was broken, and really live again.

Meh

Got tired of spending the entire book in their heads, repeating the same thoughts for at least 2/3 of the book. This would have made a better short story

Pretty good

This book is an erotic, romance, with violence and paranormal.
Elf prince Vail has been under the spell of a witch for 42 centuries and has no intention of going back to trusting any other woman, do you blame him the last women tried to kill his entire kind, which thought to be extinct but powerful. He has gone mad and is never thought to have ever to be sane again, they do not called him the mad prince for nothing.

Rosalind her family history has all turned to dark magic, but she is trying everything in her power to not become like the, to do only good. When she is captured and forced to only use her healing powers for the enemy. She finds herself face to face with a mad man and in order for her to stay alive she will have to pursue his multiple personalities to believe she is not evil.

I liked the story, the author can really put a book together. Unfortunately it is not my style of book though.
