Goodreads Blurb:
A vampire prince on a four hundred year old mission to avenge his murdered sister...

Aleksandr Nemov won't stop until the last of the vampire hunter’s progeny is wiped from the Earth. Each kill has stolen a piece of his humanity, pushing him towards the black abyss all vampires hold within their hearts. Now he is teetering on the edge, close to devolving into a beast, and time is running out as he tracks the last hunter to Prague. There he finds a beautiful woman who could be his one chance for salvation, but is it already too late for him?

A vampire guard who will do whatever it takes to protect those she loves...

Elise is dedicated to her duty. It's the only thing she has left. All that changes when she meets Aleksandr in Prague and her master grants him permission to stay at her bloodline's mansion. She knows all about Aleksandr but none of it prepares her for how she feels when the legendary prince's hunt becomes one for her heart. Elise battles him with all of her strength but can she stop herself from falling for the handsome hunter? When he reveals the depth of the corruption in his soul, will she have the strength to face the pain in her past and do whatever it takes to save him?

My Review: 
Felicity is fast becoming one of my favorite  authors. This was another fantastic book that kept me up at night and I had no problem finishing this one. I couldn't put it down. I love when a book has the perfect mix of action and romance and that's what this book provides.
Elisa is a guard for her people which she is very devoted too. When she first meets Aleksandr she is terrified of him she can see the darkness in his eyes fighting to claim him. Aleksandr has been killing vampire hunters for 400 years after his sister was murdered by one of them. But every life he takes brings him closer to the darkness. Their relationship starts off a little slow because she's a guard and he's a prince. She can't see what he wants to do with her when he can have any girl in the house. Don't get me wrong because the pace of the story was perfect. What I really love is the connection you make with the characters and how you fall in love as they do. This book was beautifully written and includes a incredible love story. Felicity really out does herself this time.
I would recommend this book to all paranormal romance fans and vampire fans. This definitely will not be that last book I read by Felicity Heaton.

Thanks for the fantastic review! I admit that Heart of Darkness was a book that I had a blast when writing, and I fell in love with the hero, Aleksandr. He's my number 2 hero (Valentine still wins). I'm so pleased that you really enjoyed it!
