Jerricho never expected to fall in love with Rex, the sexy, construction foreman, but he did. Too bad tradition forbids Jerry from marrying for love. Prince of the clandestine Anzuni demon clan, a Baelso (bearer of children), and a virgin at twenty-four, tradition dictates that Jerry marry a man chosen for him. Despite his soul-deep love for Rex, Jerry has no choice but to follow through with his obligation as prince and marry someone he doesn’t love.
But Jerry isn’t prepared for his dominant, aggressive fiancé who is interested in marrying him only for the future title of king. Facing the reality that he will lose his virginity to the cold man, Jerry flees to Rex for one night of passion. When Jerry finds himself pregnant with Rex’s baby, however, the actions of his enraged fiancé release Jerry from his marriage obligation.
But just when Jerry believes he will marry for love, he and Rex are ripped away from life as they know it. Betrayals, kidnappings, cruel experiments, pregnant men, and the reappearance of the Anzuni’s greatest enemy force Jerry and Rex to fight for their lives, their love, and their unborn child…
This is my second novel by this talented author. Both vastly different from each other. The first one, Curiosity Killed Shane, was about this quirky, slightly insane guy that was a hot mess. (I’m I allowed to mention another book?) and this one is about a Demon Prince that can and does get pregnant.
I just love Jerry and Rex together. Jerry understands his fate in life but wants one last chance to breathe and be. Before he has to his duty to his family and heritage. Rex doesn’t know anything about that side of Jerry’s life, he just knows he wants to be with Jerry.
Even the secondary cast is well written and does an great job moving the story along. Jerry’s best friend Rex’s friend. The parents, and counsel, even the guards. Simple loved the beginning of the story, the date, the disappearance the fight for my man.
However the second half, the kidnapping, the changing, the selling, the escape, well written and amazing detail was a little too violet for my taste. But with that being said, I found myself staying up way too late reading and hoping.
