When Owen’s dreams of being claimed by a prince go wrong, he doesn’t know what he’ll do. Being returned to the Western Pack is shameful enough. Just wait until his father hears what he let the prince do to him.
Fortis is happy to escort Owen home because it means spending time in the woods with his beta buddy, Keesh. Keesh will help keep his urges in check with respect to the omega, but who’s going to rein in what Fortis feels for his friend? His inner alpha wants an omega, but his everything else wants Keesh.
Owen is adorable and Fortis is hot, but Keesh can never have either one of them. He’s not the omega Fortis dreams of, and he doesn’t have the knot Owen craves. It might be time to give up on these unrequited crushes and crawl home to the Central Pack.
Wolves run on instincts, and the closer Owen, Fortis, and Keesh get to Western Pack territory, the louder theirs insist they’re heading the wrong way. Will their human minds catch up to what their wolfy hearts already know before Owen gets returned?
Omega Returned is an M/M/M novella in the Omega Reimagined series. It can be read as part of the series or as a standalone. Omega Reimagined is a non-MPREG omegaverse.
Prince Angel introduced him to the wolves who were going to be his companions for the next three weeks. The alpha was named Fortis. He nodded in response to Owen’s timid greeting, holding himself aloof with his arms crossed in front of him. The beta’s name was Keesh, and the warmth of his smile made up for the menacing air the patch gave him.
“Excited?” Keesh asked.
“Excited?” Owen repeated. He’d been excited on the way out. Not now.
“Yeah, excited. We’re going to have fun. Rabbits, campfires, fresh air. I made Fortis bring marshmallows.” Keesh nudged the alpha, who gave a little growl in response. Owen didn’t know what marshmallows were, but they seemed to make Fortis angry. Maybe they were heavy.
“I could carry them,” he offered. He was dependent on this alpha for the next three thousand miles and wanted to keep him happy, but Keesh laughed.
“I think Fortis can manage. That pack’s not too big for you?”READ MORE
“It’s fine.” When he hitched it up higher on his shoulders, Keesh came around behind him and fiddled with the straps until it sat more firmly over his hip bones.
Betas were so nice. Maybe when Owen got back to Pertha, his father could find him a beta to mate with. A beta might not mind that he’d foolishly squandered the only thing that made him worth having.COLLAPSE

Omega Returned is the fourth book in Tanya Chris’ Omega Reimagined series, an engaging, non-mpreg, omegaverse series. One of the hallmarks of this series for me is the interesting way Chris explores different “caste” dynamics and relationship structures.

The only thing missing in this series, is I’m waiting for a certain alpha to get what’s coming to him. You’ll see when you read. Pompous punk. But this book is my favorite because it’s just so special between the three of them.
Well written, sweet and sexy, some drama and angst – but not much, a little adventure, some pheromones, and a dash of longing. Loved it!
