In a world where humans are genetically designed, altered and sold for sexual pleasure and breeding, a young prince of the powerful Cassian Dynasty decides to take a mate and sire heirs. Not wishing to saddle himself with royal and meddlesome in-laws, and a wife he would have no desire to bed, Prince Edward goes to Heritage Breeders, and finds far more than just a warm body to sate his lust and carry on his lineage.
Percy is the result of a master DNA architect designing himself his own personal sex slave and breeder. Yet when his creator and Master dies, leaving Percy alone at the mercy of the callous stable masters and the new owner of Heritage, he fears his future. Afraid he'll be bought by a wretched old man or a deviant monster, Percy is terrified when he is dragged from his cell and presented to the most prestigious client Heritage has ever welcomed...a Cassian Royal.
Prince Edward is immediately infatuated with the shy, nervous and enchantingly beautiful Percy, and claims him for his own. Yet not everyone is pleased by a royal purchasing a breeder, especially one like Percy, and tensions rise both in Heritage and in the palace.
Torn between desire, duty, a king's command and the innermost desires of their hearts, Edward and Percy are set on path that is anything but easy. Can Percy trust Edward with his heart as he does his body? Can Edward keep an angry king and unseen enemies away from the young slave who is steadily stealing his heart?
And what happens when Nature takes its course, and sex leads to more than just pleasure?
I got The Prince’s Consort for free on Amazon one day. I adore Revella Hawthorne as a person and I so much wanted to read her work. This seemed like the perfect opportunity. Of course time got away from and obligations took the forefront. FINALLY, I saw it on my kindle and said, “I have to read this.” And so I finally did…. And it was wonderful.
I haven’t read many MPreg stories. The ones I’ve read are all shifter books I believe. This one is so very unique. Edward is a Prince. I know, we all want one! Well, he’s the third son and there’s a ton of nephews so he’s like 8 billionth in line and the possibility of him taking the thrown is super slim. So, he wants a breeder to have his kids and the King is fine with it. Too easy? Yeah that’s because it is.
In this book Revella has created this interesting take on breeders. Men and women born to birth a person’s child. The details and such I leave for you to read. It’s horribly sad but this book is also quite symbolic. When Edward sees Percy, a breeder, he is immediately taken with him and so their story begins.
It’s when Edward really sees Percy and realizes how special he is and how he actually truly cares (maybe even loves) him does the whole idea of breeders and people in confinement to be mounted appalling. Isn’t that our parallel? How people who are people in a different line of society, or gender, or sexual orientation are treated? How we stand up and march and fight for their, our, equality. Needless to say I can see a revolution coming.
Percy and Edward are amazing. Edward’s protection and care for Percy and Percy’s adoration and sweet shyness; it all works brilliantly. I would say this had a soft cliffhanger. One that makes you want to continue reading on but also leaves you sated in a way. I really enjoyed this book and look forward to book 2.
