Miles, affectionately called "Doc" by his packmates in the quaint village of Pine Valley, isn't the typical Council omega. Closer to fifty than he is to forty, the "husky" omega is convinced that his chance at love fizzled out years ago when Lorent, the Alpha he was promised to, refused to mark him. Rather than giving up after being condemned to a loveless mating, Doc chose to put all of his time and his heart into his medical career. If he can't have the family he's always wanted, helping the other families in his pack bring new lives into the world is the next best thing. He's carved out a comfortable if tangential place for himself within Pine Valley, but after the death of his mate in name only, the pack is left in need of an Alpha to lead them.
