2nd Edition

As prince of the Anzuni demon clan, Jerricho’s entire life has been planned for him. At twenty-five, he will become the crown prince of the Anzuni, marry a man chosen by his parents, and bear his husband’s children all without choice. If that wasn’t enough, he must remain a virgin until his wedding night. To do otherwise would spark an unimaginable scandal.

With only ten months until his twenty-fifth birthday, the walls close in on Jerry, and the realization that he will lose his small apartment, his job at the library, and his freedom hits hard. But that’s nothing compared to losing the man he loves. Rex is a smart and sexy construction foreman with a keen interest in demon “mythology.” When Jerry and Rex give in to spending one night together, their indiscretion can’t be kept secret for long. But that’s only the beginning of their problems.

Someone wants to harness the power of Jerry’s bloodline and his ability to conceive—someone with designs on horrifying experiments, sex slavery, and murder. Jerry and Rex are at the mercy of power-hungry sadists. With no one left to trust, they must fight for each other, their freedom—and their unborn child.

First Edition published by Amber Quill Press/Amber Allure, 2015.

Independent reviewer for Divine Magazine, I was gifted my copy of this book.

Jerricho is Crown Prince to the Anzuni race, a demon race living among the humans for thousands of years. He is expected to marry the man chosen for him and he is expected to like it. But he doesn't. Jerry loves Rex. When Jerry's fiancee tries to use the heavy handed approach, Jerry decides he is having that one night, that one night of happiness with Rex he may never get again. But that night leads to a chain of events that lead both Jerry and Rex fighting for their lives. And that of their unborn child.

The m-preg genre (sub-genre?? trope??) is growing on me! This book deals with it very well, and I liked how both Jerry and Rex reacted to their unexpected news.

I liked this book a lot but for two things.

one: there is a lot, and I mean A LOT of double crossing and triple crossing and even quadruple crossing!! It got very confusing, for me at least, trying to figure out who were the bad guys and who were the good ones! Even when everything was explained and laid out for me, I was still a little lost. 

two: Only Jerricho has a say. Yes, yes yes I know, I KNOW I say it a lot, but had Rex had his say?? I think this might have been a five star read, even with the confusing good/bad guys, I really do. I needed to know what he thought when Jerry left; when Jerry told him the news, and what he was thinking about, in the cage opposite Jerry. I really REALLY needed to hear from him.

It does get a little gory when talking about what's happening to the missing men and their mates, and there are some scenes of dubious consent but only one or two, and they are short. To be honest, it's only writing this review that they spring to mind, it didn't click while I was reading. I'm trying NOT to give spoilers, you see, but you need to know.

I'm left feeling that there should be another book after this one. Is there?? There is a huge fallout from Jerry and Rex' rescue and I'd like to know how that pans out. I'd like to read more about Keith, Jerry's best friend and his mate, Gunn. Eli is still missing. Even Ty, the heavy handed fiancee,  I'd like to see what happens to him when he gets THAT news. 

First I've read of this author. I liked it. Lots. I would like to read more.

4 solid stars
