An omega looking for something more.

Five years ago, Remy Lovell and his mother were exiled from their Dog Hills pack and left to fend for themselves. When they joined the Meadow Lake wolves, it was with the hope that they could start again and build a new life for themselves. When Remy rejects the newly risen alpha’s offer to mate, he’s marked as a traitor and sentenced to die.

An alpha with a missing piece of his heart.

Colby Thorne couldn’t forget his first love. They had something as teenagers, but when Remy and his mother disappeared, a piece of Colby’s heart went missing with him. Remy’s return ignites a passion inside of Colby that he never imagined he would be able to feel again. He promises himself that he only wants to help his former friend, but the feelings are stronger than ever.

Reunited at last.

As the future Head Alpha, Colby offers to keep Remy safe and help him through his pain, but Remy’s resistance, and his hatred for alphas, makes their alliance an uneasy one. Remy’s return has dangerous consequences, and these two unlikely allies must work together to keep the Dog Hills Pack, and Remy, safe.

The Alpha’s Scarred Mate is a gay romance novel set in an omegaverse with alpha, beta, and omega dynamics. This world also features wolf shifters, knotting, and themes of male pregnancy (mpreg). This second chance love story is part of a series, but has a HFN ending with no cheating.

***While mpreg is possible in this world, this book does NOT contain an mpreg storyline. However, book #1.5 (The Alpha’s Birthday Gift) does***

And what a beautiful face it was, with his full lips and a wide nose. Colby didn’t know why, but this man looked familiar, like he’d seen him before. He just wasn’t sure where.

He ran a fingertip over his cheek, being careful to avoid the injury that was designed to scar. Remy. That’s what the other stranger had called him. Remy. Remy. That name was just as familiar as the face, and it took a few minutes before it dawned on Colby. Remington Lovell. He hadn’t thought about that name in years, and now he stared down at the familiar face, he realized that it was Remy.

Damn. He hadn’t seen Remy since he and his mom had suddenly disappeared, leaving the pack, including Colby’s father, in confusion. They sent out search parties for the two wolves, afraid that something had happened to them, but after months of searching, they finally received a letter from Remy’s mother. It’d asked them to stop looking for them.


Colby had only been sixteen then, and for the first time, he’d learned what heartbreak was. He’d been enraptured by him. Remy fought against his instincts as an omega and hated alphas just because of what they were. A teenage Colby understood, even respected it. He tried to make friends with him, only to be constantly pushed away and rejected, until he finally accepted Colby’s sincerity, and they became friends. Remy had been his first real crush, and Colby had made plans to court the blond man, until the day he and his mother disappeared and left him no chance.

The door opened, and Abel entered the room with a medical bag.

“How is he? Has he gained consciousness?”

Colby shook his head. “He’s been whimpering.”

“I called Liam, he’s on his way home now. He said to keep the patient warm and try to wake him up, give him something hot to drink. If he’s not waking up, it’s best to give him humidified oxygen.”

Colby didn’t have a chance to ask Abel what that was because he was already playing with a machine on the wall beside their head. He pressed some buttons on it, making it beep, before grabbing an oxygen mask and placing it over Remy’s nose and mouth.

“Liam said it’ll warm the airways and help raise the temperature in his body. It’s clear he’s hypothermic.”

Colby merely nodded. He couldn’t do much else but watch. Abel wasn’t a doctor, but he’d been married to the doc long enough that he knew what to do in situations like this.

“Do you know him?” Abel raised his brows at Colby as he slid the face mask’s attachment over Remy’s head.

“Yeah, I do.” Colby stared down at the closed eyelids, where Remy’s eyelashes fluttered against his face. “His name is Remy Lovell.”

Abel paused, eyes widening. “Lovell? As in Caroline Lovell’s son?”

Colby hummed in acknowledgement. “I didn’t recognize him at first, but it’s him.”
