Thedric's life is neat and tidy. He has his job, his parents, and his wife, and it's been that way for the past twenty years. So what if he yearns for more? So what if he wants love and a real family that will love him the way he imagines families love each other?
Les has watched his nephews meet their mates, and between them and his brother, he's starting to wonder if his time will ever come. He's not lonely, but he does feel alone sometimes, and at forty-four, it feels like he missed his opportunity.
When Thedric allows his brother to drag him to a family birthday party, he doesn't expect to meet his mate, and he doesn't know what to do with Les. Their lives are so different that they feel they can't mesh together, and while Thedric is ready to do everything to make it work, Les is more hesitant.
Can Thedric leave his lavish life behind, or will he bow to his parents' demands that he stay married? And if he does leave his old life behind, can he and Les make it work, or are they too different and set in their ways to welcome a mate in their lives?
