The prince doesn't want a wife but he wants an heir. Although he has 2 older brothers so it's not much an obligation. So, he decided to take a breeder(slave?). He certainly didn't expect to fall in love with the breeder.
The Prince is so attentive and passionate towards Percy. I love seeing that. It was sweet. But... I don't really like slow paced book. Sometimes the writing felt dragged. I rounded up because I really liked the story. :)
