Teddy Avalon isn't strong or healthy for an omega werewolf. This makes it pathetically easy for him to be captured and carried away when a fever strikes, and after being abused by alphas before, he's terrified to find himself claimed by another. Even one as handsome as Thane. Thane is a mountain lion shifter, and he's suffered a curse that put him to sleep for thousands of years, separating him forever from the man he loved. He wants revenge. He wants to challenge Alistair for starting it all, and the best way is by taking an omega from his pack. But Teddy has clearly been abused, and Thane finds himself caring the man back to health instead of using him as a servant. To keep from having to give him back to the hands that he believed did so much damage, Thane will even give up the idea of revenge so that Teddy will forever be safe in his arms.
