Put aside by his former mate for his inability to bear children, Omega Lane retreated into the Alaskan interior and has lived there alone ever since. He's a lone wolf and a hermit, not part of the world and no longer wanting to be.
Until Carey comes across his path. Younger, and also an Omega, Carey's on the run from an Alpha who won't take no for an answer. Though Carey thinks at first he might be pregnant, he soon learns that isn't the case -- instead, he's going into heat.
Carey doesn't want or trust an Alpha anywhere near him. Lane, who has kept his preference for Omegas hidden for years, is the only one Carey chooses to trust. But can Lane let Carey into his life after living alone for so long?
And what if Carey decides he doesn't want to leave?
