(Longmead Woods Book 2)
An overbearing, but dutiful and loving alpha. A pregnant omega. A shared forewarning.
Frederick, Duke of Longmead, and his mate, Lord Nathaniel ‘Nate’ Elgin, flee into the ancient woods near the Longmead estate along with extended family and trusted servants.
King Edmund, a weak but benevolent ruler, is the duke’s childhood friend, but his venomous sister, Princess Matilda, has threatened to remove and raise Nate and Frederick’s unborn child.
The alpha and omega’s only refuge is the forest where their ancestors roamed centuries before. But the sanctuary becomes a prison with no way forward or back, and Frederick must use the secrets handed down through generations to lead them to safety.
But can he?
As the duke and Nate struggle with both their physical safety and emotional intimacy, Frederick’s brother, Cuddy, and his brother-in-law, Viscount Henry Ainsworth, are missing.
Does Matilda have a spy in their midst? And what lurks at the edge of the meadow, and is it the past or the present?
This is a 20,000-word non-shifter, mpreg novella, and it is the second of three books in the Longmead Woods Series. If you have not read Book 1, the prologue provides a summary.
