It is a standalone story, but is the first in the Great Plains Shifters series (the same universe as The Mountain Shifters).
Falling for his deceased twin brother’s mate was never part of Dustin’s plan.
This midwestern Alpha might be a little rough around the edges, but he lives by a few simple principles and honor is chief among them.
Nonetheless, when tragedy strikes the Meadowlands Pack, Dustin feels he has no choice but to bring his twin’s mate home to take care of him. The only problem is, Caleb isn’t anything like Dustin expected of the city omega who stole his brother’s heart and divided their family.
What starts out as trying to do the right thing soon becomes a blurry series of complicated decisions that lead Dustin further away from the path he’s always followed—and further into the arms of the one omega he was never supposed to want.
Caleb has been through the worst a mated omega could fear. He’s lost his mate and their unborn child, and now he finds himself at the mercy of an Alpha who has every reason to hate him.
Despite being twins, Dustin and Caleb’s former mate, Alec, are nothing alike. Caleb wants nothing more than to please his new Alpha and secure his position in the pack, but Dustin seems to take everything he says the wrong way.
As forbidden tensions mount between Alpha and omega, Caleb begins to fear that Dustin will start taking his developing interest the right way.
If it wasn’t for me, he’d still be here.
The omega’s words were still echoing in Dustin’s memory as he taped up another box. He stacked it on top of the growing pile accumulating by the wall in the cozy apartment Alec and Caleb had shared. Dustin knew for a fact that his brother’s eye for design and homemaking was every bit as poor as his own, so the charming atmosphere had to be all the omega’s doing.
The place still smelled like Alec. Despite all the teasing Dustin had given his brother about smelling like the stables, that scent was at once comforting and heart wrenching. It filled him with nostalgia and memories, and in combination with the artifacts that were still left out from Alec’s last day of living, it was all too much.
Since Dustin had been raised with the firm belief that Andrews men didn’t cry, he’d put all of his emotional energy into packing. While he’d meant only to pack up the things Caleb would need to settle comfortably into the Meadowlands Pack, he’d ended up packing half the damn apartment in his attempt to put off returning to the hospital.
The moment he’d gotten into his rental car, all the right words had come flooding to the surface of Dustin’s mind. He should have said so many things that just wouldn’t come to him at the time. At the very least, he should have told the omega that it wasn’t his fault Alec had been killed by a distracted driver or that the bridge hadn’t been properly treated or that the baby hadn’t been strong enough to make it. The only thing he could do for his brother now was to take care of the mate he’d left behind, and he was already doing a hell of a job bungling that.
To be fair, he wasn’t sure any Alpha would be at his sharpest when he’d just imprinted on his dead brother’s mate. Nothing about that day had gone as planned.
Dustin decided to just be grateful that shock hadn’t made him say anything to tip the omega off to the truth. He’d come so close, but something had held him back. Perhaps the last lick of sense rattling around in his empty skull. The last damn thing Caleb needed after losing his mate and miscarrying their child was to find out some Alpha he’d never even met from halfway across the country had imprinted on him. Especially not Dustin.
