Two vastly different cultures.
One contract that could save their peoples.
Prince Kylan of Dorvak is desperate to save his starving country. Hemmed in by looming mountains and the sea, there’s only one nation who can help them… the ship nation of Ysladre, barred from their shores years ago.
ShipSon Ferrin of the Ysladre Flotilla has never stepped foot on land, but if he is able to secure this alliance for his people, for his father, their names will be remembered for as long as their people sail the seas.
The agreement is simple:
If ShipSon Ferrin produces an heir for Prince Kylan, they will be wed, and their nations united.
But forces within the kingdom are shifting. Many chafe under the harsh rule of Kylan’s father. Some seek the opportunity to unseat Kylan’s family for good. The king opposes the possibility of alliance with Ysladre.
Kylan cares for his people, but as he falls in love with the delicate son of Ysladre, he also falls in love with his people—a feeling his father cannot and will not understand.
It’s a race against time to secure the alliance with a child before the people starve to death, a rebellion rises, or the king outright banishes Ferrin, the only man he’s ever loved.
Prince’s Gambit is Game of Thrones meets mpreg, with an arranged marriage, deception, passion, knotting, bloodshed, but a guaranteed HEA. (No main characters were killed in in the making of this book.)An Epic Mpreg Romance
An Epic Mpreg Romance.
There were parts I really loved about this: the social commentary, the “stranger in a stange land” aspects, the unique shift of experienced omega and virginal alpha. Those were interesting and well written.
What I didn’t care for was the relationship between the two MCs – I didn’t feel the emotional connection and their marriage still felt like a marriage of convenience even by the end.
It was interesting and I’d look for more in this series, but I wasn’t blown away.
Not enough shifting 🙁
