Exiled by his pack as a teen, Omega wolf Simon Moorehead learns to bury his gentle nature in the interest of survival. When a hulking, rough-faced Alpha catches Simon on pack territory, he tries to escape what he’s sure will be imminent death. But instead of killing him, the Alpha takes Simon home.
A man of action, Mitch Grant uproots his life to support his brother in leading the Blue Mountain pack. Mitch lives on the periphery, quietly protecting everyone, but always alone. A mate is a dream come true for Mitch, and he won’t let little things like Simon’s rejections, attacks, and insults get in their way. With patience, seduction, and genuine care, Mitch will ride out the storm while Simon slays his own ghosts and Mitch’s loneliness.
Simon Moorehead is an exiled Omega wolf without a pack who returns to Blue Mountain after many years. Alpha wolf Mitch Grant recognizes him as his mate and prevents him from being attacked for being on pack territory and brings him to his home.
This was an incredibly endearing story. Mitch is an Alpha wolf, twin of the pack Alpha Frederick, and chooses to support his brother rather than lead his own. He’s led a lonely, solitary existence and his excitement at finding his mate is short lived when Simon rejects him out of fear. Mitch spends the next few weeks subordinating his nature while waiting for Simon to heal and learn to trust him.
The lengths to which Mitch went to care and nurture Simon were lovely. Simon’s sweet nature rose above his learned survival instincts, developed after so many years alone without a pack. The time it took to calm his fears also gave them an opportunity to develop a strong and binding relationship.
I loved the story, which occurs right around Thanksgiving. Simon’s not the only one benefitting from the relationship as Mitch finally emerges from his isolation and finds real happiness. Both of them experience the true spirit of thanksgiving.
