Only one omega can give the king an heir needed to save his kingdom…and save himself…
Wolf king Edric Rylan is forced to marry, not for love, but to avoid the destruction of his family's dynasty. A prophecy he doesn't entirely believe has forced his hand. Either he marries a werewolf from the Silvius bloodline and produces an heir, or his kingdom is finished. Edric rules the most powerful wolf kingdom in the U.S., and he's not about to watch everything he's built fall to pieces. But he faces big problems. First, the Silvius royal family was completely wiped out in his grandfather's era. Second, he's gay. That complicates things when it comes to the nitty-gritty of making an heir. Fortunately, an eccentric old wolf seer has found a solution: a male omega wolf named Julian Wilson—the offspring of a werewolf and a human—who can have a child. The omega is illegitimate, born on the wrong side of the sheets, and grew up around humans, but he has Silvius blood in his veins. Edric knows his duty. He must mate this omega and produce his heir to stop the prophecy…and then he'll decide whether to keep the omega or exile him back to the human world. But Julian is like no wolf he's ever met—not only hauntingly beautiful but unassuming, genuine…and kind. The omega is dangerous, but he's only a threat to Edric's rigid way of seeing the world...and to his heart.
Julian Wilson feels like a nobody. He works the drive-thru window at a fast-food joint, struggling to pay for night classes at the community college. So when a limo rolls up and he's offered money to meet with a king, he's sure it's a scam or a joke. Then he loses his job. Desperate, he agrees to meet King Edric...and immediately regrets it. The alpha wolf is so handsome and sexy that Julian has to stop himself from drooling over a man who could star in his fantasies. When the king asks for Julian's hand in marriage to avoid a ruinous prophecy, he nearly falls over. Julian doesn't believe in prophecy, and this might turn out to be a loveless arranged marriage, but he's at the end of his rope. At least sex with Edric will be hot, Julian will live in a palace, and he can do more good in the world as mate to a king than he ever could alone. Julian knows his duty. He must give this king his heir, doing his best to protect the child he carries inside. Soon Julian is pregnant and discovers far more depth and passion to his mate than he first realized, even if the alpha doesn't like humans. Edric would be an easy man to fall in love with... But there are wolves within the royal court seeking to end the union of a king and a tainted-blood omega and will stop at nothing to rip their love apart.
