Charlie’s life couldn’t get any better. Felipe is the best mate he could ever hope for and fucks him long and often. And he is surrounded by his friends, Felipe’s team. To top it all off, the Maître disappeared and the Hunters are scattered and ineffective since they’re leaderless. But little does Charlie realize how his life is about to drastically change. He grows suddenly ill, and no one can figure out why.
Felipe is desperate enough to call the King’s main doctor, as he has the most experience with vampire illnesses. But what they discover is going on inside Charlie’s body is outrageous, unbelievable. There is no way a male vampire can grow a womb–is there? But Antonio, the current King, comes and tells them about a legacy as old as their kind and long forgotten, that says otherwise.
Charlie is the chosen one to birth the next King, but that is only the beginning of their problems. The Hunters are moving, but Felipe cannot focus on them while his mate is ill. And the aristocracy must be convinced that the male birthed from Charlie’s body will be their future leader.
It has been some time since I read Felipe’s Honor and was excited to see Charlie’s Legacy come out. I have to admit that when I chose this to review I only skimmed the summary. So I was a little bit surprised about the mpreg part, not that I minded. I do love reading mpreg with a plot.
Like I said above, it has been a while since I read the first book in the series and I was a little worried that I wouldn’t remember enough detail about what came before. I did find that there were reminders placed throughout that jogged my memory and kept me from being lost. I appreciated that very much.
The story starts five years after the end of Felipe’s Honor, and we can see how much better both Felipe and Charlie are doing. Have in mind that I completely forgot the blurb, so when I was reading I moved the story from romance to erotic romance because there was a lot of sex. LOL! But I could tell that the sex was leading to something different, so I didn’t skip the scenes because I was afraid I would miss a detail. Of course, but that led to was the unveiling of what Charlie would be. For the hard-core mpreg readers, you will like the showing of the pregnancy from beginning to end, including the birth.
Part of the story is about Felipe and his overprotectiveness of Charlie. King Anthony gave Felipe a warning that I completely agreed with and I was hoping to see Felipe loosen that protective hold on Charlie. It’s unintentional, but Felipe is the one who keeps Charlie afraid. And I really didn’t like how Felipe always thought of him as smaller and weaker. Yes, he has reasons, but he forgets that Charlie is more.
I was a little antsy towards the end because I really wanted more of the over arcing plot about the hunters. Though I do like mpreg, I also need a plot outside of the pregnancy otherwise I get bored. There at the end the question about what the hunters were up to was finally answered, including some action that was over before it had begun. Even though this left me a bit frustrated, I am interested in seeing what happens next.
