Exclusive Excerpt from The Selkie Prince’s Unexpected Omega
by J.J. Masters
Zale studied the sleeping omega. His dark blond hair was plastered to his forehead, his skin was a bit paler than normal, his breathing soft and steady as he slept.
Finn was no longer in oestrus, thank Poseidon.
That could only mean one of two things. Either Finn was pregnant or his heat cycle had run its course.
While three days was typical for a cycle, sometimes they’d last for five. Luca’s went a little longer in the beginning when he first went off heat suppressants since it had messed with his cycle.
But this omega obviously hadn’t been on heat suppressants. Which was just crazy. What omega thought it smart to live in a residence full of alphas and not be on heat suppressants?
Maybe his father hadn’t allowed it.
Zale and his other brothers had suspected King Solomon had only kept Finn around for his own selfish needs. To take a sixth omega and to whelp a sixth alpha pup. But he never did. Or at least Zale didn’t think he’d tried.
Maybe Finn had turned him down.
No, if Finn had refused the king’s offer, he would have been sent away. The king would have no reason to keep him in the castle, or even in the colony, any longer. So why did his father keep the omega around?
Maybe Finn knew. He’d have to ask him when the omega woke up.
But right now, Finn’s face was relaxed and Zale wasn’t going to wake the poor, exhausted male.
He needed to extract himself from this bed, which was a disaster area, and head back to his own quarters to shower. He was sure Jordan, his beta servant, was fretting about his sudden disappearance. Possibly even had his brothers out searching for him.
Zale sat up and dropped his legs over the edge of the bed. He grimaced when he noticed just how much he needed that shower. Cum, slick, and who knew what else was dried and caked to his skin.
Rutting during oestrus was not only a messy activity but not an enjoyable one. Which was a shame since he’d never had an omega before, a male who could produce slick. He’d only had humans and betas with whom a manmade lubricant needed to be used.
He glanced over his shoulder and noticed Finn was now awake, his stunning green eyes pinned on him. The omega reached blindly for the top sheet to cover himself, but it was balled up into a damp, wrinkled mess on the floor.
“No point in covering yourself from me now, Finn. It’s not like I haven’t seen every crack and crevice. At this point, I probably know your body better than you do.”
And what a body that was. Zale had to admit the omega’s lean muscular physique was more than appealing to him. With those green eyes, high cheekbones and his blond hair on the longer side, Zale found Finn very attractive.
