Kissed by a Dark Prince book tour by Felicity Heaton

Interview with Olivia from Kissed by a Dark Prince by Felicity Heaton

It’s great to be here at Bitten by Paranormal Romance today as part of the Kissed by a Dark Prince Book Tour celebrating the release of the first book in my new Eternal Mates series of paranormal romance novels.

Today, I’m going to be interviewing Olivia, the heroine of Kissed by a Dark Prince.

But before we get to the main event, I want to introduce myself. I’m a British paranormal romance author and a USA Today best-seller. I have been writing since 2005, and went indie in 2006. I love to write big worlds, populated by vampires, shifters, demons, fae and angels, and I have several series. This tour is about the Eternal Mates series, which is actually a spin-off from my Vampire Erotic Theatre series. That series focused on a family of vampires at one theatre in London but it had glimpses into the wider world outside the theatre. It’s that world of fae, dark elves, demons, witches, shifters, and other incredible species that the Eternal Mates focuses on.

Now, on with the show…

FELICITY: I have Olivia here with me today to talk about her book, Kissed by a Dark Prince. Firstly, can you tell us a little about yourself?

OLIVIA: I’m a scientist working for Archangel. *leans forwards and whispers* Archangel is the world’s leading demon-hunting organisation. Most people don’t know it, or non-humans, exist. Archangel tries to keep things that way by protecting normal people from the more dangerous species of non-humans. *sits back* My job with Archangel is primarily about research. I get to study non-human species and document everything about them. I love being able to study new species… but I haven’t been able to do that for some time since I made a bit of an error of judgement. To put it bluntly, I messed up and I paid the price.

FELICITY: It wasn’t wholly your fault though, and that one bad mistake did mean that you were around when Loren was, uh, dropped on your doorstep.

OLIVIA: *laughs* I think dropped is being kind. He was dumped outside the satellite office where I was working, and he was in terrible condition. I still remember everything about the night we met and what it felt like to walk into that exam room and see him laid out on the inspection table. Part of me was sure he was a goner.

FELICITY: He survived though, and it was all thanks to you.

OLIVIA: *laughs again* It was definitely all thanks to me… or, more precisely, the liberties he took with my vital fluids. Imagine what it’s like to find yourself with a chance to redeem yourself by documenting a new species, counting your lucky stars that you’re the only scientist left in the building, and being faced with a gorgeous man who looks like he’s knocking on death’s door… only to have him suddenly spring awake, and then bite you.

FELICITY: He didn’t quite spring awake and just bite you. Admit it… you were a bit bewitched by that “gorgeous man” and his somewhat nude state, a state you neglected to mention and one you were responsible for-

OLIVIA: Hey! I was doing my job. I had to check him over and that meant removing his clothes.

FELICITY: I’m still fairly certain you were enjoying that part of your job a little too much. Where was I? Oh yeah. You fell for his charm and good looks. Understandable. You could have hit the alarm, but you didn’t.

OLIVIA: *shrugs* You want me to say I regret it? Because I don’t. I hated him at first because of it… and I didn’t want the bonding process he accidentally triggered between us… but in the end, I’m glad everything happened exactly as it did.

FELICITY: You mentioned that his biting you triggered a bonding process between you. That’s because you’re his one true mate and his enemy knew that. Wasn’t it frightening being thrust into their millennia-old war?

OLIVIA: God, yes. It was terrifying, but I wasn’t going to just give up. I’ve had my share of hard times and I’ve been through my own wars. I didn’t want the bond because it wasn’t something I had wanted… I mean, it was forced on me and I didn’t get a choice, but then neither did Loren really. He didn’t know I was his mate until days after he had bitten me. I had a choice about whether to complete the bond or not though, and at the time I wanted it broken. So did Loren. He was going to give up his mate… me… to protect me from his enemy.

FELICITY: That still leaves me with a sad sort of feeling in my heart. He had been waiting to find you for almost five thousand years and he came close to giving you up. I’m glad that you two could work it out and made it through together. How has life been since the events that happened and brought you together?

OLIVIA: Insane, but I couldn’t be happier. I get to continue my work for Archangel right now. I’m documenting Loren’s world, while withholding anything vital that Archangel might use against the elves, and I’m also getting to study new species in Hell, where his kingdom is. Not just the elves, and some of the demon species who trade with them, but animals and plants too. It’s fascinating.

FELICITY: I can tell that by the twinkle in your eyes. What about you and Loren though? How are you getting along?

OLIVIA: Really well. I think we probably gross Bleu, his commander, and Sable, my friend at Archangel, out at times. They can’t stand it when we get a little lovey-dovey in front of them. I really found my match in Loren though. He is perfect… even if he can be a little pushy. He doesn’t want me to head to the Third Realm with Sable and her team from Archangel, but my superior assigned me to her team and I want to be there with Loren and the elves too. I don’t like the idea of Loren going to war against some demons. I know that he needs to help King Thorne because he helped Loren when things weren’t looking so great for us, but he doesn’t have to do it alone. Thorne helped me too and I want to be there… besides… I wouldn’t miss the fireworks that are going to happen. *leans forwards again* Between you and me… King Thorne was definitely panting after Sable when he met her and it was in that just-seen-my-mate sort of way that Loren was like around me. I know Loren can’t wait to see what happens either.

FELICITY: It’s certainly going to be interesting considering that Thorne isn’t the only man with a little bit of a crush on your huntress friend… and she’s not exactly looking for love.

OLIVIA: *laughs* No. Sable is definitely not looking for love. In all the years I’ve known her, she has never been in a steady relationship. And you’re right about Bleu. He has the hots for Sable too. Like I said, FIREWORKS, and I wouldn’t miss the show for all the world!

FELICITY: *shakes head* You have to at least attempt to help Sable navigate the dangerous waters ahead of her. Let’s wrap things up now so you can get back to your man and planning your impending nuptials. Describe yourself in one word?

OLIVIA: Stubborn.

FELICITY: I have a feeling that when I interview Sable in the future, she will choose that word too. Thank you for meeting with me today and chatting. Is there anything else that you’d like to add?

OLIVIA: Just thanks for having me here and letting me talk about Loren and everything. Life has certainly taken a turn for the crazy. I still can’t believe I’m going to be an honorary-elf princess.

FELICITY: I’m sure we’ll have to drop in and see that ceremony for ourselves. Take care now!

Felicity Heaton
Olivia thinks it’s her lucky night when a dangerously handsome unconscious fae ends up on her inspection table. He’s her chance to redeem herself with her employer, the demon-hunting organisation, Archangel. But when the tall, dark and deadly immortal warrior awakes, she gets much more than she bargained for…

Attacked by his enemy in the elf kingdom, the last thing Prince Loren expects when he comes around is a beautiful angel watching over him and medical technology of the mortal realm. Hazy from his injuries, all he can focus on is the pulse ticking in her throat and the sweet allure of her blood.

One single bite reveals she is his eternal mate, triggering a bond between them that will leave him weakened until it is completed… or broken, and pulling Olivia into the crossfire of his ancient feud.

To protect his people and his mate from the machinations of a madman, Loren must risk everything by working with Olivia at Archangel to find a way to break the bond blossoming between them.

But will Loren be strong enough to place duty before desire and give up the one thing he has waited millennia for and craves above all others—his eternal mate? And will Olivia be able to resist the incredible heat that burns between them and the temptation of her dark prince’s kiss?
