Then Nick’s boyfriend and former Recon teammate, Kelly Abbott, joins him in Boston, and Nick finds his hands a little too full as the case and his personal life collide. The witness he’s dubbed “JD” is being tailed by Julian Cross, a retired CIA hitman.

Trying to determine whether JD is friend or foe as they investigate the crime puts them on the trail of a much older mystery. When multiple attempts are made on their lives, Nick is forced to turn to old enemies and new allies to solve a centuries-old crime before he and Kelly get added to the history books.

Claiming his Omega by L.E. Silva
The worst day of Jaxon's life was the day he discovered he was an omega. He came into his heritage in the middle of a field, working beside an alpha who immediately tried to mount him — not that he could help it. Omegas were rare creatures, and their scent drove alphas wild with barely controllable lust. Jaxon's only hope was the omega sanctuary, where humans protected unbonded omegas with ancient, magical protections. Jaxon is wary about seeking refuge there, though, because he'll have to confront an even deeper secret about himself: his untamed, inborn magical abilities.
For Conor Rudhale, the alpha leader of the Rudhale pack, finding a mate was becoming imperative. Since he'd coming into the leadership of the pack, he's been searching for his mate, for it was an ironclad rule of law: werewolf packs were led by a mated pair. His last resort is the omega sanctuary. The only problem is that the Rudhales have hated magic and magic users for generations, but Conor reasons that the omegas themselves are not magical, only the protections in place to guard them. The last thing he expects is Jaxon.
