After spending a year in his mother's pack, Arren has returned home. Only now his best friend hates him, and his father wants to get him mated before he retires. Arren wants nothing more than to spend his days lazily swimming in the lake. But Cole, the new beta, has his own plans. To him, Arren is a brat, and he doesn't want the task of finding Arren a mate. After a good spanking Arren seems to be falling in line, but his submission is just beginning. Cole quickly realizes that playing with this coyote comes with trouble, and that the best mate for Arren might be himself.
