A pregnant omega trapped in a desperate situation, an unattached alpha with a lot to prove, and an unexpected fall into love that could save them both.
Kerry Monkburn is contracted to a violent alpha in prison for brutal crimes. Now pregnant with the alpha’s child, he lives high in the mountains, far above the city that once lured him in with promises of a better life. Enduring bitterness and fear, Kerry flirts with putting an end to his life of darkness, but fate intervenes.
Janus Heelies has made mistakes in the past. In an effort to redeem himself, integrity has become the watchword for his future. Training as a nurse under the only doctor willing to take him on, Janus is resolute in his intentions: he will live cleanly in the mountains and avoid all inappropriate affairs. But he doesn’t anticipate the pull that Kerry exercises on his heart and mind.
As the question of Kerry’s future health and safety comes to an explosive head, only the intervention of fate will see these desperate men through to a happy ending.
This gay romance novel by Leta Blake is the third in the Heat of Love universe which began with Slow Heat. It’s 111,000 words, with a strong happy ending and a critically-acclaimed, non-shifter Omegaverse. It features alphas, betas, omegas, male pregnancy, mpreg, heat, and knotting. Content warning for a violent and oppressive society regarding reproductive rights.

One of my favourite books is a Lynn Kelling mpreg book… I miss her writing so much 🙁 So I like them but they have to have something special going for them and Bitter Heat did.
However, me and babies and chestfeeding and squirting and so forth causes me… interesting reactions.
I’m going to read the other 2 now, I just have to find more hours in the day. I’m open to suggestions, lol.
Thanks, Cindi 😀
Audiobook Review: Bitter Heat (Heat of Love #3), Leta Blake – On Top Down Under Book Reviews January 31, 2021 at 4:09 am
[…] I’ve read Bitter Heat 3 times in the past year. That’s how much I love Janus and Kerry’s story. I didn’t have to sample the narrator before buying. I bought this audiobook because of him plus the promise of his narration of a story I already loved. Original e-book review here. […]
Eros has always been my favorite in Greek mythology so I perked up a little when you mentioned him.
I’ve read a lot of omegaverse/mpreg books over the past year or so. Some have been really good. Some, not so much. Bitter Heat looks amazing. I admit to being shocked to see you were reading mpreg because you don’t read books with kids or about pregnancies. How awesome that it turned out to be really good for you.
I’ve totally read books out of order before. I cracked up when you said you lost the ability to count. Been there, done that, many times. Apparently that rubbed off on your blog partner. Hmm… or maybe it’s the other way around? 🙂
Love the review. Love the visuals and the quotes.
