Book Description: Story & Art by Kanoko Sakurakouji
  He loves her blood, but does he love her?!

There is a world of myth and magic that intersects ours, and only a special few can see it. Misao Harada is one such person, and she wants nothing to do with magical realms. She just wants to have a normal high school life and maybe get a boyfriend. 
But she is the bride of demon prophecy, and her blood grants incredible powers, her flesh immortality. Now the demon realm is fighting over the right to her hand...or her life!

  Misao thinks she's come to terms with being the bride of prophecy and dating a Tengu lord. But is she ready to bear her handsome demon an heir?!
Kyo's grandfather is impatient to secure the power of the prophecy and the line of succession, and he doesn't care which of his grandsons fathers Misao's baby. If Kyo doesn't act fast, he'll lose Misao and the leadership of the clan. But despite his desire for Misao, Kyo is hesitant to consummate their relationship, for that will bring about catastrophe...

Personal View:

  I got this copy from Barns and noble (same time I bought Volumes 4-17) in store for $9.99 plus tax, it's priced the same online. Unless you would like it for a Nook I believe its $5.99. The ranged age hasn't been change "Older teen 16+". The cover is orange, and black, like I said once before the cover artwork is also absolutely spectacular. This one goes right into the story plot, that Misao is like a wonderfully ripe fruit for the taking.

  We see that from the last book, Kyo didn't know what Christmas is all about.{The Tengu are all Buddhists} Sagami takes it upon himself to have the eight, and the triplets decorate the garden with all Christmas stuff for the sake of Misao. Hoping it will help them get past their quarrel. It's so sweet that their trying to help Misao feel at home, beside comfortable with being apart of their group.

 The sneaky thing is that they have the triplets invite Misao to the little Christmas party their having. Besides that we see Sagami is a very loyal servant to Lord Kyo. He himself has become very frustrated, and has a argument with Lady Misao about what Lord Kyo has been feeling, and dealing with. But later on he makes amends. It is nice to see that Misao keeps Renko as a close friend, the girlfriend of Kyo's best friend. The clan leader of the fox demons Tadanobu.

  As the new year begins, and everyone prepares to go back to Kyo's homeland. Their also going to, prepare in a way for battle to take on Kyo's older brother Sho. So that Kyo keeps being the clan leader. An he wont have to bed Misao to keep it. Though it's finally time that we get to meet Sagami's wife Ayama, Kyo's very ill cousin.
