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?

An Emotional Tale That Tugged at my Heart.

I loved this story, I cried A LOT but I loved it! Great world building as always, multi dimensional strong characters that I want to find out more about and a gripping background story! I really enjoyed Aaron Abano's narration and feel that he managed to add another depth to this incredible tale. I liked the pace that he read the story, the tonal variations he used during the different scenes and the way he adjusted his voice for the characters' dialogue. Tempted by a Rogue Prince is a tale of epic battles between light and dark, secret pasts & hidden futures, mental and physical abuse, uneasy allies and fighting all consuming emotions, however, underlining all of that turmoil this book is a passionate roller-coaster of a love story. As with all of Ms Heaton’s books, due to the graphic violence and sexual content (it’s definitely steamy), I’d recommend this book to adults only who are fans of relationship and romance stories with a bit of fire and passion.

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

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.

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.

Fantastic!!!

By far my favorite. I wanted to learn Vail's story since the first book. As someone who loves the bad boys, Vail speaks to my soul. I cannot say enough words about how much I looked forward to this story and it did not let me down. Just over 24 hours to finish this wonderful book and that was working 9 hours a day and sleeping a somewhat normal schedule. Woke up at 530 and just had to keep listening this morning. So much conflict with the light and dark and gives you such insight to this devestating prince. Hmmmm any other book will have a hard time competing in my mind.

Very Disappointing

I was very disappointed with this book. Chapters and chapters of sex, constant complaining and reiteration of the characters fears. It was Difficult to listen to each chapter without skipping to the next which often was a continuation of the characters passion or their lack of sexual follow-through. After chapter 4 I could have skipped to chapter 25 leaving everything in between out and not missed the story line. I hesitate to listen to the other books, this was painful.

unnecessarily long

good book. but it dragged. the ending was good but no closure. same as the last book. I'm hoping that by the end of the series there'll be more character closures. Did she ever use her powers?

Better listen than 1st two books

The narrator’s voice was easy to listen to; I just didn’t enjoy how he read Vale’s part.

Wonderful Romance but Some Character Issues

It's not an easy road for Rosalind or Vail, him being the tortured mad prince. I feel for Rosalind in particular as she's been kidnapped and was simply helping Vale's brother at the time. Vail has his own issues with witches in particular... while Rosalind is a light witch it's hard for him to recognize that fact. I think the writing is great and the narrator is exceptional. I'm excited to see what comes next in this series. It's a journey for the characters, but I was very happy in the end.
