Description from the publisher:
Paranormal Bird Shifter Romance

In a place where realms combine and portals open passages to the unknown, a prophecy speaks of fertility being restored to his people through the taking of King Kabril’s mate.

The prophecy neglects to mention she lacks something vital to his kind—wings. Kabril, King of the Buteos Regalis has no interest in taking a human mate. His kind believes humans are dirty, vile creatures who rely on machines to lift them into the air. The last place he wants to go in search of his mate is Earth, but he’s left no choice.

Never did he expect to find love on a planet with one moon, people who lack wings and a stubborn vixen who makes his heart soar. When he does, he fears the truth about who and what he truly is will steal it away. Little does he know his enemies fully intend on doing the taking.

This is the first book in the King of Prey series.  They do not need to be read in order, but I always recommend doing so anyway.

As a member of Mandy Roth’s review teams, I received
Prince of Pleasure a few weeks ago and loved it.  My only complaint at the time was that I hadn’t read any others in the series about the birdmen.  Imagine my joy when this one appeared in my mailbox.  I was not disappointed!!

Kabril, king of the Buteos Regalis (Royal Hawks), knows the prophecy.  Children will not be born to his people until he has claimed his mate, and his fated mate is a human!  Ugh!  Once in the human realm, he meets his neighbor, Rayna, who quickly steals his heart.  Rayna likes the foreign veterinarian who has settled in with his roommate, Sachin.  Though they seem odd at times, she is quickly infatuated with Kabril.  When his enemies kidnap Rayna, they both must face who and what Kabril is.

This was a great, quick read.  It was quick, but never felt rushed.  I absolutely loved it and I’m hoping I get to read another birdman book soon!  The banter between Sachin and Kabril is laugh-out-loud funny as only two people who have known each for forever can be.
