Haunted by the King of Death (Eternal Mates Paranormal Romance Series Book 11)
A ruthless vampire warrior, Grave Van der Garde rules the mercenary Preux Chevaliers with an iron fist, determined to retain his hard-won position as one of the most powerful men in Hell and his reputation as the heartless King of Death. But beneath the cold façade beats the heart of a vampire torn between love and hate, ripped in two directions by a single ethereally beautiful female—his fated phantom mate.
Driven by her phantom instincts, Isla used a spell to make her solid in order to deceive the vampire who killed her sister’s demon mate and have revenge on him, condemning him with a single kiss to become a phantom too. But her plan took an unexpected turn when she fell in love with him, and with her new life, and the night she betrayed him shattered both of their hearts. Now, he lives to make her suffer through their connection, one that is fading with them as they begin to slip into the phantom world, and she must face the monster she created if she is to save herself and the vampire she still loves.
With a demon from Grave’s past determined to destroy him and everything he holds dear, and the clock ticking down to their inevitable doom, can he and Isla overcome their past and their pride to work together to secure the future they both desire deep in their hearts? Or will death finally catch up with the vampire king and his phantom mate?

Grave is the undisputed badass of the EM world (and my heart)
Up until this point, Felicity Heaton’s ETERNAL MATES series has been all about her characters “finding” their one-true-pairing, but HAUNTED BY THE KING OF DEATH approached that goal a bit differently by featuring an already bonded couple that wants absolutely nothing to do with each other. Fate of course has other plans, and Grave & Isla are forced to work together or face deadly consequences.
Having not read the six VAMPIRE EROTIC THEATRE volumes, I wasn’t able to fully appreciate the cameo appearances however, it took me very little time to recognize the merits of the Vampirerotique walk-ons, and in doing so I added another stack of this author’s titles to my TBR pile. One secondary in particular caught my attention, and after researching his book it became apparent that I have my work cut out for me because his is the last VET installment. Such hardship! ;)
Grave Van der Garde is probably my second favourite protagonist after Bleu, and I loathe owning up to this, but I actually enjoyed his story more than POSSESSED BY A DARK PRINCE. Heroes with a chip on their shoulder make my girlie bits hum, and Heaton outdid herself with her latest vampire lead. As the head of Hell’s most renowned mercenary guild, and sporting the ultimate scorned lover tale, Grave is the undisputed badass of the EM world (and my heart).
Many authors use misunderstandings as a crutch to create drama, and in this duo’s case a whopper of a mix-up occurred, yet Grave & Isla’s situation is constructed in such a way that not only is it the driving force behind the plot line, but with over a century of history, it’s completely plausible. Their issues could not have been resolved by a simple conversation, so I never felt frustrated by communication hurdles nor the urge to smack them for ignoring the obvious.
Good things come to those who wait, even if you’re HAUNTED BY THE KING OF DEATH.
