Book Blurb

They say sometimes you can’t go home again. Russell didn’t have a choice.

When Russell became pregnant after a night of youthful rebellion, his traditional pack did the unthinkable—they banished him. Left on his own, he did the best he could to provide for his son, Oliver. After witnessing a crime, Russell worries he and his son might be in danger. After a strange man visits Oliver at school, Russell knows he has no choice and packs up everything to return to Distance, ready to beg for their protection.

Jameson missed Russell every day of his banishment, but was powerless to do anything about it. As beta of the pack, he was expected to toe the line even if it meant letting the man he knew in his gut was his fated mate slip through his fingers. If only Russell had picked him all those years ago, things might’ve been so very different.

Back in Distance, Russell pleads for sanctuary and finds himself under the direct supervision of his childhood friend, Jameson. They grow closer as Russell adjusts to life back in his traditional pack with his son—a son whose biological father has decided he finally wants to stake claim to—a claim he would likely win against the unmated omega, Russell.

Jameson has a solution, one that includes their mating. Russell agrees, and the family of three finds itself growing into a family of four when Russell becomes pregnant with his mate’s baby.

Love, his mate’s pregnancy, and the tricky balancing act of becoming the third father to a four year old son become Jameson’s norm and he couldn’t be happier.

The Wolf Protector’s Omega is a super sweet with knotty heat second chance male pregnancy shifter romance with an adorable four year old shifter, an omega with a traditional and uptight pack alpha for a brother, and an alpha who would do anything for his one that got away.

Book Review

In a shifter world where pack law and obedience are considered essential, an omega shifter who made a mistake faces an uphill battle when forced to return to his birth pack in a town called Distance after years of banishment. As dire as Russell’s circumstances are, and as much suspense as there is around his acceptance or potential renewed banishment, there is also a lot of hope. This is mainly because Jameson, the pack beta, is about as supportive as he can be without upsetting their alpha. It is one of many nice surprises and adds a lot to the cuteness factor of this novella.

Russell rebelled against pack rules when he was young, fell for a glib guy, and had to deal with the consequences: banishment from his birth pack due to a baby born outside a mating. Four years later Russell and his adorable son, Oliver, are in trouble again. So much trouble that returning to Distance and Russell’s birth pack is their only choice. Coming home is supposed to be a good thing, but for Russell it is stressful, painful, and potentially dangerous. Acceptance is by no means guaranteed, even though his banishment period is over, and all he can do is beg for a place to stay.

Jameson knew that Russell is his fated mate, never forgot him, and hates that he was too young to stop the alpha from banishing the man he loves. Now that Russell is back he finds ways to help out even before he is officially accepted back into the pack, and it was fun to watch him come up with all kinds of schemes to provide for his mate – never mind that it takes everyone else a little longer to see reason.

Between pack rules and Russell’s ex suddenly showing up with the intent of causing trouble, both men have their hands full. Jameson’s plan of mating Russell seems to promise a solution, but there are lots of details to consider before that can happen. Oliver is super cute throughout, and even the alpha (Jameson’s brother) eventually redeems himself.

If you like shifter worlds with lots of rules, if male pregnancy is your thing, and if you’re looking for an entertaining read that is full of surprises, humor, cuteness, and offers a great ending, then you will probably like this novella.
