On his 40th birthday, Dean Winchester suddenly begins to worry that he may have lost his chance for a real mate. He's been so focused on his business as a 24-hour roofing and repairman, that he's never taken the time to date properly, or even make any lasting friendships outside of his family. Beginning in their late 30's, alphas and omegas start to lose their mating and bonding hormones, making it more difficult - and often impossible - to mate or bond with anyone past a certain age. But as a modern Alpha, Dean would be content with a companion, at least. Blood bonds aren't the be-all, end-all. However, after a late night emergency roofing repair call from Castiel Novak, Omega, Dean starts to hope. Yearn. The only hangup is that Castiel admits to being as old-fashioned as the books he teaches. Nervous to go against his religious upbringing by being with someone who he can't bond properly, as alphas and omegas are intended to do. But he can't deny his attraction to Dean, and despite his sensibilities, he thinks that, just maybe, he can change for the man he's falling in love with.
Castiel Novak was the guardian to his twin’s son while Jimmy was in Afghanistan serving his country. As a well-known underwater photographer and marine biologist, it meant he couldn’t travel as much, but he’d do anything for his brother. Including raising his son when Jimmy is killed in action. As they settled into their new life, a stranger knocked on their door of their home in Oahu. A beautiful man in full dress uniform stood on the porch. “My name is Captain Dean Winchester.” Castiel recognized the name from Jimmy’s letters. Jimmy had called Dean Winchester his best friend.
Dean and Jimmy had a pact. If one died while in the Middle East, the other would deliver special letters and mementos to the other’s family. Dean was fulfilling his promise. Dean didn’t expect to fall for Jimmy’s brother, but he had to stay and make sure Jimmy’s son knew how brave his father was. Dean served his stint in the Army and now a civilian. Castiel’s home in Hawaii was a paradise. Beaches, crystal clear water and it seemed like a good place to settle until he decided what to do with the rest of his life. He’d get a job and see how things went.
After growing up dirt poor, Dean Winchester seemingly has it all—brains, good looks, and multi-million dollar hotel chain. The one good outcome of a disastrous marriage was his son. With Dean’s busy schedule leaving it impossible for his son to attend regular school, Dean has to find a tutor that is willing travel across the globe with Dean and his son.
Castiel hated his job at the ritzy private high school tending to the spoiled brats of the rich and famous. He liked the simple things. The small ad in the paper caught his eye – travel, tutoring a young child – it seemed perfect. Only his new boss was fascinating and totally off limits.
Dean knew his son’s teacher was forbidden fruit, but damn, he was sinfully hot. As they travel to different cities around the world, the two men fight their growing attraction.
Castiel adores the boy in his charge and showers him with all the affection he was denied as a child. Will the three become a family?
In a world where Omegas are treated as worse than even second class citizens, Cas has managed to survive living in "The District". The District is where all umated Omegas, and those without guardians are sent to live. It's a slum where they are easily forgotten. Crime and prostitution abound there. After being tossed out in his first heat, Cas is taken in by a great aunt who lived just long enough for him to secure a teaching degree. After her death he was sent to The District. He avoids aggressive Alphas that would force him into prostitution or claim him against his will. At 40, he doubts he'll ever find his true mate.
Dean is a successful Alpha unlike most others. He respects everyone, but he has held out for years in hopes of finding his true mate. By age 37 he has all but given up, so when he meets a pretty Beta while out shopping and she asks him out, he says yes. He just wants to be happy for once in his life.
When their paths cross, they realize they've finally found their true mate, but someone else says they have a claim on Cas, and things are about to get messy. In order to save Cas once and for all, Dean has to save all Omegas.
