Chris McHart

When his father, King Harold, forces Prince Gerome to mate a complete stranger in order to save his unborn child, he complies with a heavy heart and says goodbye to all his dreams of finding love. Gerome’s hurt and treats his mate the way he’s been taught all his life: through power and submission. But with Luis, it doesn’t work.

When Luis is mated off to a stranger, his world ends. He was a carefree student one day and the next a vampire prince demands his submission. He can’t run, but he can hide and hate in silence. So he withdraws until only a shell remains.

Neither of the men has any chance of finding love together until a friend intervenes. Can Gerome forget what he’s been taught all his life, and is it possible for Luis to forget what’s happened to him? Will they ever find their own happy ending? Or can love blossom where only hate exists?

Excerpt

Luis’ mother turned to him and took his hand with her cold one. Her beautiful blue eyes sought his, and she visibly took a deep breath. “I have to tell you something. Please hear me out before you say anything.”

Luis swallowed hard. What would come now? His hands were clammy, but he could only wipe one on his jeans as his mother still held the other. Luis stared at her face and tried to figure out what was wrong. Something bad happened. Something really bad. Blood pulsed in his ears while he waited for his mother or father to speak again.

“The Vampire King from Munich visited us yesterday. He had a proposal for us. His son, Gerome, needs a mate. He’s seen the picture of you at the coven meeting from a few months ago and thinks you’d be a good match. The prince is going to take over the crown soon, and he needs a mate by his side. You, to be specific.” His mother paused and tightened her hold on his hand. “I agreed. A mating to the prince will bring a lot of power to our coven. And the king paid us a good deal of money for the match.”

“You what?” Luis yelled, trying to pull his hand back, but his mother held him tightly. He jumped up from his seat and tried to yank away from his mother’s grasp. What the fuck were they thinking? They had to be kidding. He was not going to mate some guy he never met. They were totally crazy. Nuts.

His mother didn’t relent, firmly keeping his hand in her grip.

“Let me go! I won’t mate someone you picked! What do you think you’re doing?” His voice cracked, but his mother didn’t even flinch.

“Calm down. You knew this was coming. Everyone gets mated. It’s the way things are done,” his mother said calmly, even though her fingers still dug into Luis’ hand. It hurt, but he couldn’t focus on that now. He needed to get away before they married him off. His mind raced, turning over possibilities. He couldn’t simply mate someone. What if he ran away and hid? Would one of his friends help him to lay low? If the king wanted him as a mate for his son, would hiding help at all? Or would they find him?

Blurb: When his father, King Harold, forces Prince Gerome to mate a complete stranger in order to save his unborn child, he complies with a heavy heart and says goodbye to all his dreams of finding love. Gerome’s hurt and treats his mate the way he’s been taught all his life: through power and submission. But with Luis, it doesn’t work.

When Luis is mated off to a stranger, his world ends. He was a carefree student one day and the next a vampire prince demands his submission. He can’t run, but he can hide and hate in silence. So he withdraws until only a shell remains.

Neither of the men has any chance of finding love together until a friend intervenes. Can Gerome forget what he’s been taught all his life, and is it possible for Luis to forget what’s happened to him? Will they ever find their own happy ending? Or can love blossom where only hate exists?

Review: Each book in the Unexpected collection features a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order.

I am afraid to say that the cover of this book was very daunting and drab looking to me, so I wasn’t as inspired to read this story, plus the title was just off. I had read the second book in this series and had wanted to know what happened to the baby.

This story has a dark tone to it that I really didn’t care for at all. Also the characters were not a full filling to me as they should have been. The story did have some great spots and a lot of potential to it.

Gerome is not a favorite of mine although I do feel for him. His unborn’s father is in love with Sam, his unborn child is in danger, and his father is forcing him to marry. Not something he wanted so Gerome takes it out on the stranger he is forced to mate with. He wanted love and that was what saved him with me. He has the same dream that many have but instead of going forward with Luis, he treats him like crap. However Luis isn’t going to take it.

Luis was a happy student who was carefree and loving life. That is until he is forced to mate the vampire prince. Gerome wants his complete submission and has another thing coming. However Luis withdraws so much that he is no longer who he used to be. It takes a friend to step in and help these two.

This story turned out better than I had thought but it was missing something to make it what it should have been. Like I said before I didn’t care for the cover of the book or the title, but once you start reading you kind of lose your temper with this family.

The king is an ass and so are the rules. I think that had these two met without being forced then they might have found their ending a bit sooner. I didn’t have as much fun reading this book as I should have though and I was a bit disappointed in it. And that is only because of the dark tone to it, other than that it is well written with just a few issues with it.

Other than my issues with this book, it is a very good story that I would recommend.
