The rejection of your mate is worse a fate than death. Not only is your life almost meaningless, the pain can drive you insane.
Alistair Wolfe had everything going for him. Being the future Alpha meant he was popular, smart, and handsome. With his choice of any girl in the pack, a powerful position, and a loving family, nothing could go wrong. Until he met his mate.
Owen Lykos is the Omega of the pack, and hated by everyone. His small frame and weak abilities make him useless baggage. He never thought he would have a mate, until the Alpha's son turned eighteen.
After a passionate night with Alistair, Owen wakes up to find himself rejected by the Alpha's son. He runs away from the pack, taking with him a broken heart, and a secret.
