Heat can be sold but love is earned.
In a world where omegas sell their heats for profit, Adrien is a university student in need of funding. With no family to fall back on, he reluctantly allows the university’s matcher to offer his virgin heat for auction online. Anxious, but aware this is the reality of life for all omegas, Adrien hopes whoever wins his heat will be kind.
Heath—a wealthy, older alpha—is rocked by the young man’s resemblance to his dead lover, Nathan. When Heath discovers Adrien is Nathan’s lost son from his first heat years before they met, he becomes obsessed with the idea of reclaiming a piece of Nathan.
Heath buys Adrien’s heat with only one motivation: to impregnate Adrien, claim the child, and move on. But their undeniable passion shocks him. Adrien doesn’t know what to make of the handsome, mysterious stranger he’s pledged his body to, but he’s soon swept away in the heat of the moment and surrenders to Heath entirely.
Once Adrien is pregnant, Heath secrets him away to his immense and secluded home. As the birth draws near, Heath grows to love Adrien for the man he is, not just for his connection to Nathan. Unaware of Heath’s past with his omega parent and coming to depend on him heart and soul, Adrien begins to fall as well.
But as their love blossoms, Nathan’s shadow looms. Can Heath keep his new love and the child they’ve made together once Adrien discovers his secrets?
Heat for Sale is a stand-alone m/m erotic romance by Leta Blake, writing as Blake Moreno. Infused with a du Maurier Rebecca-style secret, it features a well-realized omegaverse, an age-gap, dominance and submission, heats, knotting, and scorching hot scenes.
Blake Moreno is Leta Blake’s pen name for a darker side of romance. I read The Difference Between Us, and that is still probably the darkest read I’ve read to date. I didn’t know quite what to expect with Heat for Sale. It’s definitely not as dark, and it’s a take on m/m preg with lots of taboo. I was eager to sink my teeth into this one, and it didn’t disappoint.
Adrien needs money to continue his studies, and he decides to sell his first heat on an auction site with the chance of breeding. He doesn’t expect the price for him to go so high…or for his world to shift so spectacularly. This was pretty much flaming hot right from the start. Adrien has innocence to him, and this whole omega pregnancy thing? He is so not prepared for it.
This is where the taboo aspect comes in. The bidder is an older alpha…one who had taken Adrien’s father as lover (not to worry. Adrien is not their love child together. But still, the secret growns between them, and what’s going to happen when Adrien realizes Heath knew his father…and didn’t tell him.
I gobbled this one down. The characters come to life so easily, the tension is thick, and the writing just keeps the momentum going. I will say the ending was a bit disappointing. I was expecting more…sparks? Collision? Tension?
In any case, Heat for Sale was a wickedly good read. I’m eagerly anticipating more from Leta Blake’s alter ego.
