Like Spun Moonlight: Gay Mpreg (Bearers Book 1) Kindle Edition by Anya Byrne

Romeo and Juliet, but gay, in Like Spun Moonlight.

From the blurb:

In a world where shape-shifters have become the dominant species, Julian Rowe is one of the few
remaining pure-blooded humans. He is also a Bearer, a highly prized male valued for his ability to bear pure-blooded children and the member of a preeminent human family. But he hates his legacy, and he believes he can do so much more.

The son and heir of an important werewolf family, Roman Montblanc has no plans to interfere with the affairs of humans—until chance strikes, and he sets his eyes on a beautiful human with skin like spun moonlight and eyes the color of the greenest grass. His mate.

What will the meeting between these two men bring about? Can two star-crossed mates challenge the very fabric of their society or is their love destined to fade away?

This is a second edition of Like Spun Moonlight and has been revised and reedited. Grab this title for a steamy m/m with a Shakespearian flair and plenty of twists and turns! Romeo and Juliet has never been hotter.

Jacquie's Review:

I believe that these novellas are being re-released after being revised, re-edited and given new covers and I loved the new look!

This is a great Romeo and Juliet retelling with some mild angst, some violence and a HEA. I vaguely remember Romeo and Juliet from school and there are some key parts of it here from memory such as the balcony scene. It was pretty cool to have it with a supernatural twist.

Roman and Julian have a bit of insta lust going on thanks to their mate bond, but nothing happens until they get to know each other, which I appreciated. Roman was a strong mc and very easy to like, he puts Julian's needs and comforts above his own. No pesky miscommunication or unnecessary drama. It sets up a running theme for the next novella.
