New York Times and USA Today Best-Selling Paranormal Romance Author Felicity Heaton presents:

Marked by an Assassin (Eternal Mates Paranormal Romance Series Book 8)
A snow leopard shifter exiled from his pride twenty years ago, Harbin treads the dark path of life as an assassin, driven by a hunger for vengeance, mercilessly hunting the Archangel members who attacked his kin, murdering his mother and sister.

When a new contract comes in and the mark is a snow leopard shifter, he can’t resist venturing into the mortal world on a personal mission to find out why one from a normally peaceful species now has a price on their head. What he finds in a rundown nightclub isn’t quite what he expects—a beautiful snow leopard female that awakens a fierce hunger inside him.

Aya has spent seventeen years living in London, immersed in the underbelly of the fae world, keeping her head down and her tail out of trouble. But when trouble walks right into her life in the form of a sinfully handsome, dangerous assassin, she is pulled into a whirlwind of events that stir up the nightmares of her past but might just give her a shot at putting those ghosts to rest—if she can resist the dark allure of a male she knows is her fated mate.

Can Harbin and Aya resist the passionate fire that blazes between them as they chase the vengeance they both crave? Or will they surrender to their deepest desires?

Driven by vengeance, Harbin treads the dark path of an assassin but his newest mark isn’t quite what he expected and the beautiful snow leopard awakens a fierce hunger inside him in this pulse-pounding paranormal romance. There is never a dull moment to be found in this story and I have to say that there was so much going on that I couldn’t believe I had read it that fast, I didn’t want it to be over, but as I looked at the clock, I realized that I had just been so caught up in the story that I had no idea that much time had passed…I guess it’s a good thing everyone can fend for themselves around here.

I usually enjoy ms Heaton's story telling, but this was written as if she was paid by the word. The rest of the series has been fun but this was just a waste of time and space.

5.0 out of 5 stars Heaton Delivers! 13 November 2015
By B. Price - Published on
*4.5 Stars*

I've come to expect a few things from Felicity Heaton - a compelling story, well-developed charatecters, brilliantly choreographed action scenes, and emotion. She delivered all the goods in Marked by an Assassin.

Harbin lost so much twenty years ago. Those losses changed him. They allowed him to embrace the darker part of himself - seeking vengeance against those who took from him, dealing in death. He has a new mark now and it's a surprising one. Someone he didn't expect to see again.

Aya was taken captive twenty years ago - a fateful night for her pride. She was eventually released by Archangel but not before they explained a few things behind her abduction. Those reasons have been haunting her for seventeen years.

Heaton did a phenomenal job in bringing Harbin and Aya together. The plot threads woven in also play into the overarching plot and really captivated me. The imagery Heaton conjures with her prose never fails to deposit me right into the scenes. That, along with the well fleshed out characters, makes for an exciting and satisfying read.

Since this is #8 in the Eternal Mates series, I'm familiar with all the cast. So it was a delight to get glimpses of some of my favorites as well as getting an idea about possibilities brewing between two cast members in particular.

I'm eager for more Eternal Mates, more of the characters I've come to love. I'm anxious for several of the cast to find their mates and I'm curious as to where this is all going to lead in the end. Whatever comes next, I know Heaton will make it worth my while.

{ARC received from the author in exchange for a honest review}

Felicity Heaton is one of my all time favorite authors, her love for writing and talent comes alive through her stories. She is just an amazing writer. Each book each series just has you wanting more.

The Eternal Mates Series Amazing set of stories, with now book 8 Marked by an Assassin. Each of us has a past some can move on, other move on a bit slower. Grief, desolation, guilt and loneliness can keep a person down. Then comes a time for love, passion and trust. Just jumping in and take the risk, doing something so unlike you. For something that make yield your greatest reward.

I love Felicity’s characters, you cant help but get to know them and to feel for them. You want to jump in the book and help them and sometimes shake some sense into them. The males sexy hot strong and stubborn to fault, but the females more than their worthy counter-parts. Aya will prove that, in watching how she overcomes a devastating past.

A game is afoot! What will it cost one of the greatest Assassins? Harbin has never not got an mark. He is good at what he does and has the scars to prove it. He has a few scars unseen and a past that eats at him and keeps him in a dark place.

Some romance and some steamy hot scenes, more than a few what just happened, some aw moments. All to be brought together for a wonderful 8th book in Felicity’s amazing series. Marked by an Assassin can be read as a stand alone, the series is awesome so start at the beginning, it will be well worth your time.
4.0 out of 5 stars Another Winning PNR by Felicity Heaton 29 November 2015
By mlsimmons - Published on
This series is become of my favorite paranormal romance series. I love how it is completely different from the other series that I'm reading right now. I'm a very character driven reader and Felicity Heaton writes some amazing characters. Everytime she introduces a new character, I want to learn more about them.

Both Harbin and Aya have a troubled past. They both have revenge on the mind. Harbin gave his life to a group of assassins so that he would have some way to make a living while still working on trying to get his revenge. Aya spent most of her time within Archangel. She eventually gets released, but she now has revenge of her own and is working with Archangel to get it.

Once again, Heaton has built on to the amazing world that she has been building throughout the series. She also continues to have the phenomenal characters. The storylines truly draw you in. Even with the shorter storylines of the novellas, the romance isn't overly rushed.

As per usual with me, I fell for a secondary character. I know that everyone is hounding for Bleu's story. With the introduction to Fuery, I think he has topped Bleu for me. His story is intriguing me. Fuery is one of the assassins that Harbin worked with who is damaged. I so want to hear his story. Ms. Heaton, you can be sure I will start hounding about Fuery's book until it appears on my ereader.

5.0 out of 5 stars I’m all about Harbin & Aya 1 November 2015
By RabidReads - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I’ve been a rather fickle reader where selecting my favourite ETERNAL MATES installment is concerned; first I fell in love with Loren & Olivia, then it was Cavanaugh & Eloise, and now I’m all about Harbin & Aya. MARKED BY AN ASSASSIN was a marvelous addition to this series with its feline inspired fight scenes, poignant romance story, and the way that it tied into some of the earlier books.

Key points in the two protagonists’ pasts were established in the opening chapters giving the characters a lifetime’s worth of history in one quick pass, so that way Felicity Heaton was able to get to the core of this title faster. This approach suited me perfectly because the plot was of the just-keeps-on-giving variety, and the author definitely made the most of her 263 pages.

Even though this series can be read out of order, we get a different perspective on a pivotal scene that occurred in TAKEN BY A DRAGON, and I’ve already given two of the previous novels top ratings prior to doing so again with #8 which means that you have nothing to lose by starting with KISSED BY A DARK PRINCE. Anyway, I digress, that was far from being the only memorable part; all of the action rocked too!

Initially, I didn’t have much of an opinion of Harbin aside from the knowledge that he was Cavanaugh’s brother, but combine twenty years worth of assassin training with an unrelenting quest for vengeance and a soft spot for his childhood crush, and you have an irresistible male lead. Aya was quite the spitfire as well, and Hartt / Fuery were a curious pair that I hope we’ll see more of in the future.

MARKED BY AN ASSASSIN had ooh-la-la in all of the right places!

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it!! 1 November 2015
By Claire F - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Let me start by saying that I'm seriously addicted to Felicity Heaton's books and this series so I couldn't wait for this. I wasn't disappointed.

This book follows Harbin, snow leopard shifter and brother to Cavanaugh, who we've met previously in the series, and Aya, a female snow leopard.

Harbin is an assassin based in the depths of hell. He is intrigued that the new mark is another snow leopard and is eager to take the job. He doesn't realise at the time how this will influence his future and maybe give him a chance to bury some of the ghosts of his past.

I enjoyed getting to know Harbin and finding out what made him tick. He is a pretty complicated character who is bitter and angry about his past but he does hide a good, honourable side which I don't think he likes to admit. At least not at first anyway. I liked his character a lot. He's flawed but not unworthy.

Aya is equally as good. She's strong and smart but also sweet. They make a perfect pair.

I enjoyed meeting other characters from previous books and I liked seeing events that we had seen in the other books from a different point of view. It was a great extra dimension on the story. I also enjoyed meeting other characters which I'm sure will feature more prominently in future books.

The writing was great, the story flowed well. It sucked me straight in and I finished in one sitting. There was plenty of action and romance.

I thoroughly enjoyed this from start to finish and can't wait for the next book in he series. I would definitely recommend to all pnr fans :)
