Abby Smith was your average high school tomboy, tall and gruff with a head full of fiery red hair. So what could trouble such self-reliant young woman? How about her best friend Cindy who's insistent on her getting a boyfriend? Yet Abby can't connect with anyone Cindy sets her up with. Then one day Cindy uncovers the reason. “Oh, my God! You're gay!”
For anyone else that would be a problem, but for Abby's family that was completely and utterly unacceptable. So she'd better be positive. But how does one know for sure? You need a test, of course.

A secret marriage, a secret baby, and a secret mate–will Owen and Caleb ever find out they are meant to be?
My stepbrother, Owen, is a beautiful, young omega, and I'm going to make him mine.
I never thought I would find my omega so close to home. When my mother married his father, Owen became my stepbrother. Now his father's scheming is keeping us apart. I won't allow that. Owen is mine. No one will have him but me.
So much has happened since my father married Caleb's mother. We're stepbrothers, but we're so much more.
My life is so complicated now. A secret marriage and a secret baby don't make it any easier for me to figure out what I feel for this gorgeous, domineering alpha.
Is this real? Could we be fated for each other, or will my father's threat of an arranged marriage keep me apart from my alpha, the man I love?
No way was I going to marry someone just because my father said I had to. I was an adult. I could do what I wanted. But not according to my Alpha Father. Apparently, he’d meticulously arranged this marriage for me.
I couldn’t fathom why he would do such a thing.
Curious about the alpha, I snuck up behind him. But he caught me. I ran as fast as my little legs could carry me, but in the end he had the endurance and I didn't.
I feared this was the end.
A wolf and a rabbit? Ha! That’s a good one. I scoffed as my father informed me about my betrothed. This was a joke, right? I mean, I eat rabbits for breakfast and now you’re telling me that I’d be mated to one?
That was the best laugh I’d had in a long while.
Then I saw my Alpha Father’s dead-set eyes and I stopped laughing.
Wait? This isn’t some kind of twisted April Fool’s joke?
I was sure this was going to turn out terrible, but I went to the ball our parents set up. We were both from upper-crust society, so it was expected. I expected to have a nice dinner, maybe some dancing and then a nice, heart-to-heart talk with his Alpha Father where we could clear up this little…misunderstanding.
What I didn’t expect was for him and our babies to be kidnapped.
This 15k word story contains an HEA, Mpreg, and babies at the end. Cute babies. Insufferable little tykes that get into all sorts of trouble.
