Lord Cuthbert 'Cuddy' Trenton is carrying twins, but as well as the perils of childbirth, the omega contends with a palace awash with gossip about the two babies being a sign of evil. No one is safe, and Cuddy's mate, Viscount Henry Caldwell, plans to take his family and escape the court after the birth.
Queen Eleanor, Cuddy's sister, forbids them to leave, and sets up a battle of wills between a queen and her alpha brother-in-law.
But they cannot depart until the little ones are born.
Neither the omega nor the alpha is prepared for the anguish of birthing two babies, and Cuddy's life is in danger as a drunken midwife prepares to bring their children into the world.
Despite his misgivings, Henry chooses to stay by the omega's side as their little ones make an entrance. And what an entrance it is!
This is a 6000-word short, which continues the story begun in The Omega’s Gamble, The Omega’s Wager and The Omega’s Pledge.
