An alpha werewolf chasing his dream meets an omega fighting for his life in a strictly temporary marriage of convenience...
Alpha werewolf Beau Jeffries has been going it alone ever since he was cast out of his pack as a teenager for trying to help a human and endangering the pack's secrets during the tumultuous years when the wider world was learning the truth about werewolves. He hasn't lost his drive to help others, and he's about to begin a prestigious medical residency--only to learn that, as the first werewolf the program has knowingly accepted, he'll have to follow special rules, including the one that requires him to be married when he begins his residency.
Omega werewolf Roland Lea is just trying to survive. After escaping the last and worst in a string of abusive relationships that left him scarred and unable to conceive, he's found safety in a refuge for homeless omegas. But despite the help he's getting at the refuge, he just keeps getting sicker instead of better, further and further from being able to make it on his own. When he's offered the opportunity to sign up with a mate-matching agency, he figures he has nothing to lose. No alpha is ever going to want an omega like him.
When Beau sees Roland's profile, he knows at once what's making the omega sick, and he's determined to help. If he can persuade Roland to marry him, he can save Roland's life while Roland helps him get through his residency. But will their hasty partnership be enough to bring them both through what's ahead--and can temporary necessity lead to a forever love?
