One Last Try
When Nox was fourteen, his brother Joth murdered a human girl, their older brother, and their mother. Nox survived, but the attack wrecked his womb. Shattered, Nox rejected the pack who fumbled helping a barren, grief-stricken omega cope. He built a new purpose for himself as a master craftsman. Mating? No thanks. He’s better off alone.
Humans studied Joth in prison until their father’s death ended his weekly visits. Joth demands Nox in their father’s stead in exchange for resuming therapy and tests…thereby risking the destruction of Nox’s carefully ordered world. Again.
The pack drafts alpha fixer Dio to untangle the mess. One sniff of the wary omega convinces him Nox is his mate. New medical treatments offer a slim possibility Nox could bear children, but if the past years taught shifters anything, it is an omega’s value is greater than his fertility. Reconciling Nox with the pack that failed him is more important. Laying the ghosts haunting Nox to rest by confronting his murderous brother is too. Learning to trust? Vital.
Dio just needs to coax Nox into one last try.
