he only way for Prince Rin to save his kingdom is to marry a king and bear a child, but will he survive his fate?
In a world where two kingdoms are constantly at war, Prince Rin, heir to the throne of the Kari kingdom, has been demanded as a war conquest by King Merinej of Jeda. The prince must travel to his enemy’s kingdom and share the king’s bed, bearing him a child, or the war will continue. But the prince will not lower himself to what he sees as nothing but the title of a whore, so he demands a contract requiring the king to be faithful to him. After all, giving Merinej a child will threaten Rin’s life.
Even going into the marriage headfirst, Rin expected nothing more than a business arrangement. Instead, he receives affection, yet the more surprising realization is his willingness to give love back. However, the king cannot save Rin from those who wish him harm, and their union might be over before it can fully bloom.
Reader Advisory: This book is best read in sequence as part of a series.
King’s Conquest was a nice fantasy tale with Princes and mpreg and magic. However, as the first book in the series, it was only a beginning. It had an interesting world with two warring kingdoms that had some major dissimilarities in culture.
Prince Rin lived a very sheltered life and always thought he would wed a woman even though he had the ability to carry a child himself. This is partially because carrying a child, for both genders, was extremely difficult and often fatal for either the parent or child. In ending the war, Rin ends up wed to the rival king and finds something he didn’t expect.
It’s not a slave fic per se, though it has some of the same feel to it, and there is a bit of a murder plot that is easily solved. On the whole an easy read, though ultimately too short. I would read the next book to see how things play out.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the eARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
