Book Blurb

An alpha leader must have an alpha mate, but Gray wants only one man.

And that man is an omega.

Wolf shifter Gray Collins returns to his home pack to avenge his father’s murder, never expecting to take on the role of leader. Gray is a loner with no desire to tackle the politics of being Pack Alpha. Worse yet, he falls for the man he’s come to depend on—omega Logan Richardson.

According to pack lore, omegas are inferior, nothing more than lowly servants. Or are they? Logan is far too cunning, fierce, and bold to be a low-ranking wolf. While he keeps his head down in public, when they’re alone, Logan stands toe-to-toe with Gray like no one else dares. Mutual respect grows into friendship, friendship into a white-hot desire neither can fight.

Despite the law and the odds, the two wolves form a tentative bond. Together they lead the pack through strife and threats, all while keeping a secret—a secret that could get them both killed, and plunge the pack back into the savage dark ages.

The entire Lycan world is on the brink of a hard-won lesson: Never underestimate the relentless force of an omega.


Book Review

Don’t underestimate me. I know more than I say, think more than I speak, and notice more than you realize.” ~ unknown


Gray Collins, of ‘Never Underestimate an Omega’ by Eden Winters, has never been traditional. He left the wolf pack he was born in to join the military and live among humans. Doing so has given him a different perspective than most shifters. When someone murdered his father, he came back to avenge his death. Doing so meant being challenged by the current pack leader, who had no intention of losing to him, even if he had to cheat to do so. With help from an unforeseen source, he won the challenge and became the new leader.


Logan has been in love with Gray since he first met him when he was a teenager. He knew that Gray only thought of him as a kid. Logan made himself invaluable to Gray over the years as his assistant. Together, they have developed the pack from an old-fashioned community into a modern, thriving one. Logan knows his status as an omega puts him at the bottom of the totem pole as far as status goes. In public, he defers to Gray, but in private, Gray values his opinion more than anyone else. Logan and Gray are close friends, but Logan dreams of a more intimate relationship. Constantly, he has to reign in his inappropriate thoughts and douse himself in sandalwood to try to hide his carnal desires. He isn’t sure if it works, but it is as close as he can get.


Even after a great deal of pressure, Gray has adamantly refused to take a mate. There’s only one wolf he wants – Logan. A romantic relationship with him seems impossible. Logan has never given Gray any cause to believe he wants him. Even if he did, Gray is too old for Logan. Most of all, Gray doesn’t want to endanger their friendship. Logan’s advice and support are essential. Life without him is unimaginable. For these reasons, Gray keeps his feelings to himself until a walk home and a passionate kiss cause him to think otherwise. As Gray formulates a plan to create a life with Logan, the unimaginable happens. Someone kidnaps Logan.


‘Never Underestimate an Omega’ is a fun story with a hot romance between two sexy wolf shifters. I loved Gray and Logan. Eden’s worldbuilding was exceptionally detailed and captivating. Usually I’m not a shifter fan, but I should have known that Eden could convert me. I fell in love with these guys and their pack as well. Thanks, Eden, for the fantastic read! I can hardly wait for the next story in the series.
