    Summary

    “He’s not part of the agreement,” the Earl replied, just shy of frantic.
    “Him,” the brute reiterated, his tone harsher and pointed. His hand rested on an axe strapped to his belt and the Earl’s eyes darted between it and Gavin.
    “He’s a man. He’s a man and a beta. He’s… He’s a beta.”
    “Him.”

    Gavin Free, third son of the Earl of Bamburg, has a terrible secret: he’s an omega. At age twenty-five, he’s resigned himself to hiding his nature for the betterment of his family and the preservation of his life. For Gavin, a quiet life in the church is the best he can hope for.
    When the Great Heathen Army of the north attacks Castle Bamburgh, and threatens the safety of Northumbria, Gavin is whisked away to the northern lands as part of the peace agreement. More worrisome than the harsh climate and the cold weather is the dangerous heathen king that chose him. A dangerous king that Gavin can’t help but be inexplicably drawn to.

    Summary

    “Harry Potter,” comes the soft, sibilant hiss of a voice he has heard in his dreams, in his nightmares, in his waking hours for years.  

    Slowly, carefully, Harry twists over and pushes up onto his hands and knees.  He stays there, short breath fogging in front of his face, and his pursuer lets him.  Harry has no doubt of that; he’s being allowed this respite. This small moment to catch his bearings, heart pounding in his ears, blood singing. 

    “It seems I have finally caught you.”
