Gage is a typical omega—submissive, domestic, eager-to-please ... horny. But he wasn’t born with all the right equipment or the right smell. Living as a beta wolf is too painful, so he’s been hiding out in the human world. Then his sister turns up on his doorstep running from an unwanted claiming, and Gage is forced into Northern Pack territory to seek asylum.
Ryker’s a typical alpha—dominant, wild, protective … horny. But living in Northern Pack territory has taught him that omegas shouldn’t be forced into traditional roles, so he’s been making do with porn and fantasy, not wanting to be that alpha. Ryker isn’t sure why Gage triggers all his protective instincts, but he knows Gage needs him, and Gage is exactly the omega he’s been looking for.
When Ryker meets Gage, the attraction is instantaneous, but it can only be temporary. Ryker was built to live in wolf territory and that’s the one thing Gage will never do. As soon as he gets his sister settled, he’ll flee the Northern Pack and the alpha he’s always dreamed of belonging to. Unless love, with a little help from science, can find another way …
Omega Revealed is a M/M shapeshifter non-MPREG alpha/omega novella.

Alpha Ryker was built like one of the trees that surrounded North Leland—tall, wide, and sturdy. Not round though. More like a rectangle, a rectangular vee of a …. Yeah, there was no point in trying to describe him in geometrical shapes. Alpha Ryker was built like a cake Gage wanted to eat, like a mountain he wanted to climb, like a wall he wanted to be enclosed in, like a dildo he wanted to be impaled by—like if this guy could just fuck him with his entire body, that would be great.
Gage rose and took the offered hand, glad he’d left on his human clothes. Alpha Ryker wore what amounted to a loincloth, which … thank God there was at least one layer of cloth there, because if Gage could actually see the dick he wanted to have stuffed into his every orifice, he might already be on his knees.
He reluctantly let go of the giant’s hand, immediately missing its warmth.READ MORE
“I’m Alpha Ryker,” the man said. “And you are …” He glanced down at the clipboard in his hand.
“Gage Rio Verde,” he interjected quickly, using the human form of his name in hopes of heading off the honorific he so despised.
“Welcome to North Leland, Beta Gage.”
Useless. Fucking pack protocols.
“Please,” he said, trying to still the instinctive wince, “just Gage.”
You’re here for your sister, he reminded himself, repeating the words like a mantra. It always hurt to be identified as a beta, but to be identified as a beta by this wet dream of an alpha created a sucking vacuum of pain big enough to leave him empty.
“Gage,” Alpha Ryker repeated. He put a hand on Gage’s shoulder. “Call me Ryker.”
A scent accompanied Ryker’s gesture, the pheromone-laced scent of alpha protection meant to calm an agitated omega. It was maybe Gage’s favorite scent in the entire world, but he’d never smelled it directed straight at him like that before. He’d only ever caught wind of it by being in the vicinity of an omega being soothed, the olfactory equivalent of eavesdropping.
To have it blasted right at him—that it was just for him, that Ryker was treating him like an omega … well, it had the desired effect.COLLAPSE

I liked this story is about being accepted just the way you are. I think we all want that. This story did a great job of investing me as the reader and making me want more. When you want a romance with heart and soul I highly suggest this one.
Ryker was such a good alpha for Gage. His inherent instincts were responding to Gage's and they were the perfect match. It's when his head told him one thing and his wolf told him another that he got into trouble with hurting Gage. When they finally get it together, however, it was tender, fierce, passionate, and the true claiming that both of them always wanted but never thought they'd find.
