Charlie Young is an omega werewolf, but also a defect. He cannot shift, and he and his wolf are stuck together, molded into the same body. Banished from his pack at a young age and forced to live with his abusive mother, he's shocked when he's called back by Dane Griffiths, the son of the former alpha who shunned him. Despite that hurt, Charlie wants to climb into the man's lap and obey. He doesn't want to be made into a concubine because he's a defect, however, so when Charlie runs, Dane not only chases him, but mates with him. Charlie is not even sure if it's a true mating, but his body is certainly intrigued. He wants to know more about Dane, about the thing that caused him to push Charlie away all those years ago. It might bring great happiness, if jealous pack members don't kill Charlie in an attempt to take his place, first.
