OMG! What did I just read?! It was fantastic this book utterly fascinated me.

"The Prince's Consort" is book one in the "Breed For Love series" and wow! What a way to start! This was my first mpreg read and I love it. I was kinda hesitant at first but I soon as I read the first chapter I was hooked.


Prince Edward wants children but he doesn't want a wife to deal with, especially when he prefers males for his sexual partners. He decides to go to heritages breeders where he can choose h

Just as wonderful as the first time. ~ *happy sigh* ~

Wow .. Am I the only one who wishes that I were in Cassian Dynasty and I, too, could buy breeders from Heritage? 😂 Such a classic perverted Shin, huh? 😏Anyhow, everything about this novel is just so wrong and so right!!! Well, not gonna lie, I'm really a sucker for HEA and dramatic romance. This book is everything I ever wanted in my wildest fantasies. And may be this one is not everyone's cuppa but it definitely wa

It was just ME not the book. My friends loved this book but it was weird/strange for me. It was my first read in Mpreg books and I couldn't enjoy it! This alternating male body didn't really work for me but I hope you enjoy it, at least more than me!

While I have to admit I’m not a huge fan of mpreg I am a huge fan of this author (SJ Himes) and having just re-reading her amazing necromancer series I decided I’d finally give this a try.

Prince Edward is third son to the king but with his older brothers both having children he’s now so far down the line of succession that he’s free to make his own choices. And he wants a male breeder.
Now in this world humans are genetically designed, altered and sold for sexual pleasure and breeding. Edward

Very very cute. I’m not sure this is for everyone, since the cuteness and the sweetness is very OTT, but it worked for me, since I like that sort of cheesiness.

This takes place in Cassian, a kingdom with modern day technology. Prince Edward want heirs, but since he is 10th in line for the crown, he has no obligation to marry for the kingdom. Especially since he does not want a wife, he wants a man as his consort. And that’s why a breeder sounds like a good choice. Breeders are men or wo

I need the rest of this series NOW!!

This book made me happy! It made me feel good! It made me warm and sexy, and I just have to read the rest of this series!

Five stars for feelz. Yes. That’s what this is. I’m not ashamed to admit that I fell in love with an MPREG book. That I fell in love with insta-love. Nope. Holding my smut loving head up high, I am.

Percy, the breeder, is adorable. Think twink slave. Self lubricating. With a NEED to procreate. But only when stimulated.

Insta love, resulting in a mpreg! I jumped in with no life jacket (didn't know the author, so took a chance) in selecting this book and ended up riding the crest of the wave, I felt like the Queen of Surfers - the book was that good!
I suppose this may be classed as an AU (alternative universe)?, where in that world, genetically altered men are reared in the labs and when reach maturity, they become "Breeders". It is not a good life, their only function is to birth the offspring their Master forc

LOL, sorry, but I can't get into this. Genetically altered men aka 'breeders' with self-lubricating assholes, bearing children through I don't know what part of their anatomy...

Plus a fairy tale prince with a smartphone who tries his best not to mount his breeder at every opportunity... because he wants kids, of course.

It's just too much...

I just couldn't....naturally lubricating buttholes, futuristic male breeders, smartphones (blahhhh texting), little tiny little one Percy.

Not my cuppa. But I tried. Not even the copious amounts of Oh! Please, master! Fuck me, master!!!! could make this more enjoyable for me. Well, okay it was enjoyable for a minute until the self lubing butt hole mentioned above. Nope.
Sexy AU

Sweet, super sexy, low angst alternate universe master/slave mpreg romance.

A surprisingly sweet novella when you consider that one of the main characters is genetically bred and modified to be able to carry children and purchased as a slave.

But it really was quite sweet. Edward does all that is within his power to elevate Percy to a secure position of consort to ensure he, and their children, will be cared for and protected even if something happens to Edward.

I liked the dual POV, the int

I was reading this and really loving it but then I realized this series is not complete. The last book published was 2015. I don’t want to get invested in these characters and not be able to know the conclusion.

This was cute. A little too much sex, maybe, and it could use a good editing but, it was cute nonetheless.

I have been on a rampage, hunting down this author ( a.k.a S.J. Himes as well). Her writing always amazes me and holds my attention constantly and instantly. her story flows smoothly and captivatingly. her worldbuilding is top-notch and so elaborate with details. I swear her imagination is deserved to be admired and praised.

Percy is a work of art. he is pure ecstasy to be with: demure, shy, enticingly beautiful, kind-hearted, and brave. he has been on a constant fear to be tossed aside after be

The prince doesn't want a wife but he wants an heir. Although he has 2 older brothers so it's not much an obligation. So, he decided to take a breeder(slave?). He certainly didn't expect to fall in love with the breeder.

The Prince is so attentive and passionate towards Percy. I love seeing that. It was sweet. But... I don't really like slow paced book. Sometimes the writing felt dragged. I rounded up because I really liked the story. :)

OMG. You guys don’t know how much I loved this book! It’s just all kinds of awesome! The story! The concept! The dialogues! The sexy times between Edward and Percy! Ugh. Just so good. I didn’t think I’d love an MPREG story this much! I loved the mixed up of old royal tradition with all the modern stuff! I loved Percy’s sweet innocence and I loved Edward’s brother Mason!

What a super awesome read!!!!

Chan and I have decided that we can't be true M/M connoisseurs if we don't dabble in mpreg. We just want to be well-rounded, you know? I also just HAVE to know how they are going about this whole male pregnancy thing. The sperm goes through the butt.. and then what? Where does the baby come out?! The urethra? Butthole? I need answers! ...more

Oh hey, surprise! I picked this book at random after seeing it on someone else's feed and I'm so very glad I did.

Nothing, absolutely nothing, was holding my interest last night...until I started reading this. Instantly I was intrigued by the setting, the world-building was pretty tight (not much different than now other than the genetic manipulation, but the detail on that was top-notch) and it was easy to like the characters. And the sex, holy cow! Hot stuff there, but it also packed an
I loved this book! It was not overly long and ended on cliffhanger and it just whetted my appetite! I love the whole concept of a royal prince falling in love with his slave/breeder. The whole idea of DNA modification is unusual. I loved Percy and how he was - curious, fascinated by everything, shy but slightly coming out of his shell in the end.

Prince Edward was a nice surprise. The way he accepted Percy and treated him with decency when breeders are considered less than human made me view him

I might sound shallow, but I loved this book. The story line was simple, and the characters suffered of a strong case of insta-love, but overall it worked. The author did a great job creating interesting characters and building a credible alternate universe around them. The MCs relationship is reminiscent of a typical Alpha/Omega relationship, but the situations they were involved with were pretty much normal, even with one of them being Royal.

The book can even be read as a stand-alone without
I couldn’t, too many adjectives and I was hoping Percy would have some personality, a bit of sass. But nope. 😑

I liked this. I enjoy mpreg, so if a story can be written well with mpreg, I'm very happy with it. This also has a master/slave type of relationship going on because "breeders" as they are called in this are meant to basically just be objects with a hole that can carry a child to term and then be discarded, basically, once the child is born. And Percy calls Edward 'master' for a majority of this and still thinks it in his head sometimes when Edward - finally - asks Percy to call him Ed

So...I'm a huge sucker for mpreg and any sort of...unusual...but still hot sex haha and this was just excellent! It's set in a world that is similar to ours as far as technology, cars, and so on, but there are different cities and royalty. This was all sorts of hotness, sweetness, with this sort of reverse knotting? (No clue what else to call it haha) and building intrigue as far as why the king was acting the way he was, and also why Percy's owner acted the way he did. I loved Edward and Percy ...more

Interesting first book looks at an alternative culture

There were parts of this first book in the Bred for Love series that I really liked and other bits which perhaps will get more explanation as it goes on.

Edward is coming across as a true prince, kind and thoughtful and determined to protect his new breeding partner. Percy is super sweet, eager to please and fulfil his purpose.

There's an alternative reality which mixes elements of the feudal system with ultra high tech genetic engineering whic

Okay, the reason I loved this so much, was constantly petting my kindle and making cooing noises, is how beautifully sweet and genuine this story is. I never for a second doubted Percy or Edward.

Percy, in his sheltered, earnest innocence, captured my heart and brought my protective nature out roaring. I cannot wait to see him with the kiddo! Hope I get pages of that!

And, EDWARD! Once in a blue moon (I think this is only the second time) I run into a character that, if I could master magic, woul

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,
