Biology has gone actually insane. The Alpha/Beta/Omega system works in a similar way to dog packs (it’s said this trope grew out of werewolf!AUs). Alphas (especially Alpha males) have enormous cocks capable of knotting; Omegas (including male omegas) have a heat cycle that is based on their ability to conceive. Omegas’, er, orifices are self-lubricating, especially while they’re in heat. Pheremones fly around like mad, and there is a lot of scenting, marking and gallons and gallons of bodily fluids.
When he awoke in the recovery room following the operation, Dr. Olivier was there by his bedside with a warm and welcoming smile on her face. Although he was disoriented from both the anesthesia and the cocktail of medications he’d been administered to alleviate his pain, he had to admit that she made for quite the sight. He’d always had a thing for brunett
When they come knocking at the door, Jared’s almost tempted to tell them to fuck off, but showing a bit of rebellion now won’t do him any favors. Given Jared’s reputation, they won’t expect him to go MIA. He wants to keep it that way.
Dean felt his blood boil. It wasn’t even his demon side that was angry, it was his human side, one hundred percent. He couldn’t believe his brother kept that secret from him. The selfish bastard had a habit of keeping secrets but this one took the whole fucking cake.
Castiel held the being close to him once more before passing it to Dean, who felt his entire body warm up to the being. He never wanted to let go and he now knew he would do anything for this innocent creature. His children. He hadn’t thought or ever expected to have two but he wasn’t going to complain.
Rubbing his stomach still, he swam over to some coral reefs and eased himself down to catch his breath. Swimming for long periods of time just wasn’t something he could do now that he had been able to do before thanks to his full womb. I bet she’s hiding somewhere and giggling at me. He pouted while he looked around himself.
Eben Meiser only drove Jake away to prevent him from learning the truth—that Eben is a dragon-shifter, feared and shunned by society. Now Eben is preparing to spend Christmas alone when Jake comes hurtling back into his life, along with the surprise that he’s carrying Eben’s baby. Eben fights to protect their future, but will he and Jake be able to rekindle their past?
The relationships between the Alphas and the Omega were the most engaging parts of the book, generating some decent interest as well as a twist or two that I wasn’t quite expecting, but also occasionally left a bit to be desired. There were certainly some sweet and reassuring “rescue and comfort the Omega” scenes, but also some interesting conflicts, including some over-the-top reactions that made some sense and helped make this to be a bit more than a simplistic “rescued and then fated to mate”story.
Initially not wanting to settle down, James meets Stewart; devastatingly good-looking, charming and aloof, Stewart is everything James never knew he wanted—except he seems to have something against James and everything he stands for.
