Gabriel Weston's never wanted to find a mate. He was abused by alphas before and wants no part of them now. Unfortunately, when he escapes from his old pack and wakes up injured, he finds that he's mated to a very large, very powerful alpha wolf, one who has a bad reputation. Brishen does not want to scare his small mate. The man has been through enough, but he also wants to be close to him, needing to feel the physical touch of his mate to ease his own ache, and to prove that he's not what the rumors say he is. After Gabriel discovers he is pregnant with Brishen's pup, the two begin to make small steps toward trust, but one of the omegas of Gabriel's former pack is out for revenge, and when he puts Gabriel into harm's way, Brishen will have to rush to his mate's side before he loses everything he holds dear.
