Review: Claimed by a Demon King by Felicity Heaton

Claimed by a Demon King by Felicity Heaton
Series: Eternal Mates, #2

My Rating:  
Sultry Scale:

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?

For some reason, demons aren't my thing. I don't know why. I like vamps, shifters, fae, elves, and magicians - but demon stories, not so much.

I liked Thorne as a character. I found his inexperience endearing, and I empathized with his struggle between duty and love. Nevertheless, I didn't really connect with this story. Sable was okay. I liked that she was a warrior, but I did not like her constant rejection of Thorne. I also felt that the bit about her parents and powers was left unresolved. I'm not sure if those things will be worked out later in the series, but I wouldn't expect it seeing as there is a new couple in each installment.

So we'll see, I will keep reading because I think I will like the series more once we get to the books featuring shifters and dragons.
