Alex is pregnant and in danger of incarceration for the crime of male pregnancy. His best friend and now lover Sam has undertaken the role of father to Alex’s unborn child. Gerome, the true sire of the baby turns out to be a vampire prince who has been forced into an unwanted mating by his father, the king. Strangers kidnap Alex and hold him and the safety of the unborn child ransom. The demand is Gerome mate with a person of their choosing. The scheme devised by Gerome and Sam requires cooperation from Gerome’s intended. This is a story that has all the elements, love, hate, intrigue, deceit and way too many cooks with their own recipes.
I enjoyed this. It picks right up where Alex’s Surprise leaves off and moves the story forward. New characters are introduced and woven seamlessly into the story. The thing I most appreciate is the introduction of new supporting characters answer all those questions you would normally still have to ask. How did this happen? Why? Where? The backstory grows with the main plot and the two weave together in a way that makes you glad you picked up this series to read. This story is so complete you even find out what happened to a character mentioned in the beginning of the book to introduce the penalty for male pregnancy. Not that’s what I call bringing it full circle!
I know nothing I am saying makes sense unless you have read Alex’s surprise and that is intentional. There is still one more book to go. If you want to take this journey with me you will just have to buy a ticket to ride.
This is a wonderful book that shows exactly what bad parenting looks like! As well as a romance that proves that communication is the key to love lasting, or even getting a foothold, in a relationship.
Tyler goes to Los Angeles based on a comment made by his absentee father when he was young. He wants to become an actor and since his dad is a director he's counting on him to help him break into the business. Unfortunately his dad is less than receptive to the idea.
Tyler's dad preys on his son's desire for success and arranges for him to work for Eric, an up and coming director, who has a copy of a screen test his wife made. This 'chance' encounter turns into much more and then the real fun starts!
You really have to read this book. The author has included a few angst ridden scenes, sexy scenes, twists in the action and one much needed set down. Through it all you'll enjoy the antics of Nova, the wonder dog!
Chris McHart really did a wonderful job of world building regarding Vampires in Munich. You forget the story isn't taking place in an US city. The vocabulary and grammar are excellent. You don't feel like the author lives in Germany. I really commend her. There are quite a few poorly written mpreg stories. This is NOT one of them.
This book is full of danger, excitement, intrigue, parental demands, scheming, fear, and abuse. I didn't read the book summary and was shocked at the reason why Alex needed saving. Sam was devastated and despite his seemingly chilly demeanor Gerome immediately flew into action to help find Alex and their unborn child. Gerome kept Sam focused and from breaking down. It is at this point that we learn why Gerome was so adamant about not claiming his child. We meet Gerome's parents and learn some disturbing customs / traditions among these German Vampires.
When a Vampire, especially those with any money, status, or Royal heritage takes a mate, there is often a large sum of money that changes hands between the parents, which means just what it implies, whoever is purchased is owned by their new mate. Some Vampires are pure, but many have been mixed with Humans, making them more amenable to the circumstances they find themselves in as Mates to both powerful and power-hungry Vampires. These poor Mates can be mistreated, verbally and physically abused, and nothing can be done. It's just the way things have been for centuries.
The dominant mate could be either male or female. Each can be kind or very cruel. The more modern offspring do as they are told, but not without some arguing, begging, resistance, but ultimately they comply. As in Gerome's case he'd been free to find a mate, but since he hadn't, his Royal father, King Harold used the situation with Alex as a strong-arm tactic to get his son's co-operation in meeting a selected candidate Luis. Demanding proof of bonding and consummation before trackers were deployed to locate the scent of those responsible for Alex's disappearance.
Alex is scared, alone, and frightened for his life, as well as, those of his child and boyfriend. He doesn't know where he's at, but he is disturbed by the increasing violence inflicted on the young man that brings him his meals. He prays that the Prince and Sam will come for him. Little does Alex know all that is happening in his absence.
A forced mating, a fake mating, a despondent mate, a happy King, an angry Prince, a frightened but sympathetic guest, and were trackers hired for their keen sense of smell. Espionage, betrayal, sniffing out or tracking down clues. Violent fighting, conniving parents, confusion, panic, gunshots, a bedside vigil, a secret room, and finally a HEA.
