This was a pretty cute little non-shifter ABO mpreg story. Rowan has grown up on the fringes of royalty. His best friend (who is also a distant cousin) is a princess so he's had the best of both worlds for most of his life. Princess Celia is about to be betrothed to a prince from a warring country in order to garner peace throughout both countries. Though it is an arranged marriage and not out of love, she is willing to do her duty for her realm. Rowan is never so thankful that he's not royalty ...more

Okay, and it had its moments, but I was looking for more relationship building, and was hoping for more in the romance. I love when an a/b/o is done right, but I just didn't connect with the characters here.

I received a free copy of this book by cheekily asking for one by the author which she kindly gave me for an honest opinion, and I'm so glad she did.

First off I love the whole omega/alpha genre whether shifter based or just power hierarchy settings, throw in some m/preg and its just right up my street. So this book was perfect for me.
This book is about Rowan an omega who is best friends as well as distantly related to the princess of Calabria and Gus or Gusset as he's nicknamed the Prince of Ibe

A Joyfully Jay review.

3.75 stars


I know I say this a lot, but I love omegaverse stories. Especially if there is heat and knotting involved. They answer to a sort of primitive side of me. When mpreg is involved, I usually get all swoony and drunk on all the love. However, The Prince and the Omega left me feeling a bit let down. The premise is great. A royal prince doomed to marry someone he doesn’t want because peace between two lands depends on it. Especially if that someone happens to be a woma

Author: Penelope Peter

Review: The opening to The Prince and the Omega was great, we meet Rowan who is an omega as he arrives at his best friend Celia’s (also an omega) engagement announcement party where she is to be married to an Alpha prince. As the party begins we are also introduced to Prince Gaspar of Iberia who is going to be marrying Celia despite the fact he prefers men. Wanting to have some fun before his marriag

Not a ton of depth, no relationship building, lots of martyring, and more than a few angsty inner monologues. But balancing that with sweetness, tenderness, confessions, love, and a sweetly hot epilogue and you've got a cute and entertaining story about an omega and his alpha with a couple friends to carry them through.

Rowan was cute and flustered from beginning to end. He was loyal and trying to make the best of his rather unfortunate circumstances. He had a great friend in Amelia who carves an

This is my second book by this author and I have to say it does get better! I really liked what she did with the story, the setting and the characters. Even though this non-shifter story is set up in the AOB Universe, it seems to be occurring during the Middle Ages, yet with cars. However, they are the only technology that I can recall in the story.

For the most part I really enjoyed this story; however, there were a couple of things that bothered me. Fir

Rating: 3.5 stars

This story is a slightly weird mix of elements, there is the alpha/omega elements (non-shifter) with an almost fantasy feel, but the world is more modern (cars, characters wearing jeans/t-shirt, etc.). Reads a bit like what I expect from a fanfic, but that is not necessarily a bad thing (just wish there had been more world-building explanations).

I did like getting to see both Rowan and Gus's POVs for the story. I think wi

There was a very Harlequinn-ish feel to this story. On one occasion it felt very repetitive (the part where Rowan knows he’s pregnant and the part where he admits he’s pregnant). I felt the characters (Rowan, Gus, Amelia and Celia) were all oblivious and dense. I can’t believe none of them ever confronted/teased/addressed the each other on their apparent crushes/unrequited feelings. It was a bit of a love square of a mess. That being said, it was a fun read to pass the time. It played out a bit ...more

Not bad for my first completed M/M, mpreg, non-shifter romance. While there are 2 on-page sex scenes, this is mostly about royalty being forced to marry someone they don't know or love to better their people while trying to shield themselves from heartbreak because they can't be with the one they truly love.

I loved the story shift about 2/3 of the way through the book! The writing was pretty good and I was able to kind of get a sense of the 'omegaverse'

Prince Gaspar is to be married to Princess Celia. Two kingdoms looking for a peace treaty. It's an arranged marriage but the day they are to meet each other the Prince finds his happiness. Too bad it's not Princess Celia. Celia's cousin Rowan is also an omega. Her best friend. Amelia is an alpha, with no lineage but part of Celia's circle of friends. Together they go through many adventures, find love and frustrate a kidnapping. Will they all find happiness? The answer is in the book...very enjo ...more

This was a GREAT read. I started with the sample, to try a new-to-me author, and when the sample ended, I was like, ohhhhh i don't THINK so, and bought the book. I read it through in one sitting.

Loved the characters and I was immediately fully invested in Rowan and his happiness. He's a great character in an unfortunate position of being in love with someone unavailable.

TWO great plot twists. I was O.o because I was caught off guard, and that's really unusual for me!

So, Ms. Peters, you've go

Really enjoyable read

I really enjoyed this book and loved the characters and the rather sweet story of forbidden love.

A Prince forced into an arranged marriage and a commoner who is the best friend of the princess the Prince must marry. After an hour with each other the Prince and the commoner can't stop thinking about each other but it's too late until one of them falls pregnant and is kidnapped. The Prince will do anything to find his love even if it means he must stop the wedding. Recommende

I wanted this book to be longer, so that we would be able to explore the various characters more. Gaspar, Bruce, Celia, Amelia, and Rowan were all interesting characters and it would have been great to delve into their interactions and relations to understand how they all think and work together. Instead, we get more of a summary of over a year of their lives with little vignettes to show specific pivotal scenes.

I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.

Celia is a princess that wants to marry someone she loves, but is being forced to marry prince Gus and he doesn't want to marry her since he wants to marry someone he loves. They are both agreeing to marry each other to end a war. This story could have been better, the relationship for Celia wasn't really developed only the one for Gus. The story jumped around, but really get into depth with anything. I voluntarily reviewed this book.

I received this ARC in exchange for an honest review. I read this book in one sitting. The romance was cute. I kind of wished Gus was a little better of a character/Alpha but I loved Rowan as the Omega. A great HEA ending. The emotions between the main characters squeezed at my heart and I could not wait to see them together!

**I voluntarily read a review copy of this book. All opinions stated are solely my own and no one else's*

I really enjoyed this book; the author gives you a refreshing take on the alpha/omega relationships. There's no shifters in this story but that's what I liked about it; it had originality.

Celia's trying to live vicariously through Rowan - she has to bond with a prince she doesn't love but that doesn't mean that her best friend, Rowan should miss out. Celia encourages Rowan to find his mate a

This is the first book I've read by this author and I thought it was good. I really liked Rowan. He was sweet. The story was a shorter one that I was able to read in one sitting. I will definitely look to read more by this author.

This is an enjoyable read. Alpha/Omega non shifter story. A prince that needs to marry to keep the peace. One last fling that ends up being the best friend of his intended. A Kidnapping and truths come out for a very HEA.

The characters in this were very interesting, probably since it combines Royalty and non-shifter Omegaverse, two things I love. The twists and turns in this were fairly predictable and I think that's part of it's charm.

Sweet m/m "Prince Charming" omegaverse story

I didn't find this quite as fun/strong/hot as some of the author's other, relatively sweet omega stories, but still it worked for me as a diverting omegaverse read. The political intrigue and the "pre-arranged to marry my best friend the omega Princess" was a nicely different/somewhat novel touch.

I personally especially appreciated the side-story of the Princess, and the overall including of expanded (and LGBT-friendly) exploration male/female gender
