At the age of 18, all women who cannot afford a dowry for marriage must be placed in a facility in the hopes of being adopted by an affluent husband.
To maintain order, all women go through a mental reassignment reverting their minds to six-year-old girls - progenies. By keeping the women innocent in all ways before marriage, they can later function as a wife and mother more efficiently. The progenies are sheltered, nurtured, babied, and even disciplined by their assigned poppas. The progenies have no baggage, no hardship, no broken hearts. There are no dark secrets in their lives, no torrid affairs, and no pain. Their husband is buying the purest gem there is. He adopts for marriage, so his wife is flawless. Life has not chipped away at her.
But what happens when the mental reassignment doesn't work? This is what happens to Juniper Ambrose... she's not truly the little girl she should be. She has no choice but to play the twisted game of pretend, hoping no one, especially her poppa, finds out. Secrets, lies, pretending - this is the world the progeny, and her poppa, have been thrown into.

I love almost anything post-apocalyptic, zombie, scifi, ect. Always looking for some new earhole entertainment!
I really enjoyed Poppa's Progeny. This is not my usual genre of book. I normally go for sci-fi post apocalyptic stuff but this was an excellent story set in a sci-fi, dystopian type of setting. It was suspenseful and very erotic! I hope Alta Hensley is planning a second book for this. I'd love to know what happens next! Hollie Jackson does an excellent job with the narration !
I love audiobooks!!!
So, I went into this book thinking it was YA dystopia, because the person who recommended it doesn't usually read romance. Partway through, I found myself blushing to the roots of my hair, listening to some pretty explicit sexual stuff out loud on my car stereo!! I nearly drove off the road! I'm no stranger to Erotica, but I usually listen with headphones in a non-distracted atmosphere. That said, this was a really rich story, made better by the talented narrator. I truly enjoyed the intimate byplay between Poppa Costello and Juniper. Well done!
