Soren Chase can't seem to get his student loans paid off, and the threatening letters from the government have him turning to the last possible solution: selling his body to a shifter who wants to impregnate him with pups. Bruin has been fighting the instinct to have pups for a while now. He never thought he was ready, but he can no longer ignore the urge. He can't believe it when he finds his natural mate sitting on a table trying to get bids, or when some prick alpha is trying to scam him into a cheap fuck. Bruin needs to step in and take his mate away with him. The problem is that the mating heat got the better of them both, and when Bruin impregnates his mate, the consequences might be too much for him to handle.
