Blurb: Jerricho never expected to fall in love with Rex, the sexy, construction foreman, but he did.
Too bad tradition forbids Jerry from marrying for love. Prince of the clandestine Anzuni demon clan, a Baelso (bearer of children), and a virgin at twenty-four, tradition dictates that Jerry marry a man chosen for him. Despite his soul-deep love for Rex, Jerry has no choice but to follow through with his obligation as prince and marry someone he doesn’t love.
But Jerry isn’t prepared for his dominant, aggressive fiancé who is interested in marrying him only for the future title of king. Facing the reality that he will lose his virginity to the cold man, Jerry flees to Rex for one night of passion. When Jerry finds himself pregnant with Rex’s baby, however, the actions of his enraged fiancé release Jerry from his marriage obligation.
But just when Jerry believes he will marry for love, he and Rex are ripped away from life as they know it. Betrayals, kidnappings, cruel experiments, pregnant men, and the reappearance of the Anzuni’s greatest enemy force Jerry and Rex to fight for their lives, their love, and their unborn child…

Review: Wow. Just Wow. I never actually know what I will get when I start reading a book by JC Wallace. But I know one thing, I am in for one hell of a ride. Damn did this deliver.
Jerricho, aka Jerry is twenty-four years old and still a virgin. Due to the traditions of his people he will be marrying the man of his parents’ choice in less than a year. A man he has not met nor loves. Not that it really matters. Except it does. Jerry has fallen in love with human Rex.
I felt for Jerry. He has spent years rebelling in any way he can. But he knows that the time will come when he will have little choice. Finally after meeting his “finance” for the first time, Jerry makes a decision to at least lose his virginity the way he wants and with someone he cares about. And that opens a whole hell of a lot trouble for everyone.
This book went all over the place, but in a good way. There is so much going on. So many twists and turns. There is a lot to keep up on. Like who to trust, who is a bad guy? Those Jerry and Rex thought they could trust turn out to be their enemy. Those they know are enemies turn out to be unwilling victims. Everything was topsy-turvy.
And the sex. Damn, I did not see that hotness coming. Jerry and Rex together were not what I was thinking they would be. No, they are a hell of a lot more steamy than that.
JC Wallace has created an interesting, unique, and intriguing world. The history of the Anzuni is a definite new spin on the demon myth.
The characters are well-developed, not just Jerry and Rex, but also the secondaries. For such a long book it was still very fast paced.
I found myself drawn into the story from the start and could not put it down until the very end. I needed to know what would happen next. Would they escape, would they be rescued, who would turn into an ally or enemy next? These were all things I would ask I was read.
Now I really hope there is a follow-up, because there are some situations left open-ended, that I would like to see explored and resolved.
This rollercoaster ride is well worth the read.
