I am complex. My love is all-encompassing. And when it comes to my heart, there is only one rule: Don’t mess with what’s mine. Until the age of seven, I was Joel Alexander Donovan, son of Jimmy. The man who terrorized a town and made its citizens fear the very ground he walked on. Including me, the day I realized that ground ran red with blood. At age 18, I became Priest. A man without a past. A man determined to right the wrongs of my father. A man who never believed anyone could love the son of such a monster.

Priest was always my favorite, but hearing his story has solidified that. He's so misunderstood, but he's loyal and loves hard. And Julian and Robert makes him a better man. Love these 3.

Getting to know Simeon has been wonderful. He's a man who is trying to find himself in a sober world. He's messed up and now is trying to make amends and find out who and what he deserves. And he finds it in another who has been struck by tragedy and finding it hard to move on. Watching Simeon and Bastian navigate something they've never done before has been a joy. Both men deserve to be happy. I couldn't get enough of these two.

It's a truth that he fights to overcome daily with the help of his husband, Joel Priestley, and now their boyfriend, Robbie Bianchi.

Relationships are complex. Love is ever-changing. And when it comes to rules of the heart, they were made to be broken. That's what Robert Antonio Bianchi was telling himself, anyway. Otherwise, he really had no excuse for what - or who - he'd done. If there was a bad decision to be made, Robbie always had a knack for making it. And thus, begins the story of the priest, the princess, and the prick.
