1001 Dark Nights (A Wicked Wolf Novella) by Carrie Ann Ryan

wickedwolf_150

Quinn, a lieutenant with the Talon pack, had all but given up on love. Jilted by his mate Helena, he almost lost both his life and the life of his son Jessie because of  Helena’s selfishness. His mate, with the help of a witch, severed their mating bond and the link to the Talon Pack and left right after the birth of their son Jessie. The severing of the bond almost killed him and left his 5 yr. old son fighting for his life on a daily basis. Because of this Quinn’s heart became hardened and he developed a hatred for witches. Unbeknownst to him, the Goddess sought favor in his eyes and provided him with a new mate that would cause a war within his soul.

Gina, adopted daughter of Kade, the Alpha of the Redwood Pack and soon to be enforcer, was part fire witch and part wolf. She is the daughter of the deceased Larissa, a witch, who perished during the war with the Centrals years prior. It was during that war that also claimed the lives of her grandparents, their Alpha’s; and caused a shift in powers within the younger generation. Now, as an adult, her father Kade asked her to join him at a meeting with the Talon Pack, to help devise a plan to unite the packs together as a method of solidarity. It surprised Gina that during this meeting her wolf had her staring at a strange, angry wolf lurking in the corner. She didn’t know why she couldn’t remain focused on the meeting when all she wanted to do was rub up against the man in the corner.

This novella left me wanting more of Quinn and Gina’s journey towards love and the effort of helping the Talons find mates. Throughout the battle of the mind of two stubborn and dominate wolves, the link that would ultimately join them together is the love of a little pup named Jessie.

Thank you Carrie Ann Ryan for this opportunity to read and review this ARC. I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. You know that we can’t get enough of the Redwood pack and now you’ve taken us on a new journey with the Talons. Kudos Mrs. Ryan 5 Stars!

Review of Tattered Loyalties by Carrie Ann Ryan

Tattered-Loyalties-Cover-vFinal-72dpi-200x300

When the great war between the Redwoods and the Centrals occurred three decades ago, the Talon Pack risked their lives for the side of good. After tragedy struck, Gideon Brentwood became the Alpha of the Talons. But the Pack’s stability is threatened, and he’s forced to take mate—only the one fate puts in his path is the woman he shouldn’t want.

Though the daughter of the Redwood Pack’s Beta, Brie Jamenson has known peace for most of her life. When she finds the man who could be her mate, she’s shocked to discover Gideon is the Alpha wolf of the Talon Pack. As a submissive, her strength lies in her heart, not her claws. But if her new Pack disagrees or disapproves, the consequences could be fatal.

As the worlds Brie and Gideon have always known begin to shift, they must face their challenges together in order to help their Pack and seal their bond. But when the Pack is threatened from the inside, Gideon doesn’t know who he can trust and Brie’s life is could be forfeit in the crossfire. It will take the strength of an Alpha and the courage of his mate to realize where true loyalties lie.

Gideon Brentwood, the Alpha of the Talon pack never expected his fated mate to be a submissive, let alone be one from another pack. Brie Jamerson, daughter of Willow and Jasper of the Redwood Pack knew who her fated mate was since she was seventeen years old. She never acted on it because, one she is a submissive wolf and two, he is an Alpha of the Talon Pack. It was her belief that Alphas’ and  Submissives’ never mated. It was unheard of. So besides her best friend/cousin Charlotte, no one knew until years later when her family went to the Talon territory to discuss business.

Suspense, ✔. Drama, ✔. Passion, ✔. Envy, ✔. An evil plot to rule the world, ✔. All and all Carrie Ann Ryan delivers. I don’t know how she can knock out hits like she does, but please if it involves keeping us with the Redwoods and now the Talons; keep them coming.

I really enjoyed that we were able to grow with Gideon and Brie on their becoming one within their relationship. But most importantly, I enjoyed how Brie was able to develop a relationship with in her new pack whilst also growing in her abilities as an Alpha/Submissive. She definitely threw out the preconceived notions that the elders and even her cousin Finn threw in her face. The Brentwood’s are growing on me and I look forward to reading more about them, especially with what’s to come.

Emeline might have been alive hundreds of years, but she’s never really lived. Using her knowledge and research, she helped save the Redwood Pack from devastation. However, she’s never felt whole. Not since she lost her mate so long ago. Now there is a new, younger wolf, entering her life and it will take more than her nose in a book to figure out the warmth in her heart is much more than a promise of a new feeling. It’s fate.

Noah has known Emeline was his mate since he first saw her, only he doesn’t know if she feels the same. He’s always been on the fringes of those in power in the Pack and has enjoyed it. Now he’s become an integral piece and wants to find a way to bring Emeline with him. Her reluctance in dating a much younger wolf isn’t the only hurdle in his way.

When he finally takes the step, he’ll have to pray she finds the connection and lets fate save them both. As they find their way to a mating bond, a player from the past is out to hold them back and everything they thought they’d had might be lost forever.

Carrie Ann Ryan’s “Tangled Innocence”

 

Dante’s Circle Book 4

 

Humans aren’t as alone as they choose to believe. Every human possesses a trait of supernatural that lays dormant within their genetic make-up. Centuries of diluting and breeding have allowed humans to think they are alone and untouched by magic. But what happens when something changes?

 

As one of the seven lightning struck women, Nadie Morgan has known for a while now that her fate would be forever changed…and revolve around a certain dragon. From the first time Dante Bell saw Nadie, he knew she was the one for him. There’s just one problem–there’s another in his life he’s waiting on as well.

 

When Jace Goodwin, a bear shifter and Mediator, finally comes back to the human realm after years away under circumstances out of his control, his first stop is to Dante’s Circle where he not only finds his dragon, but the woman they both have been waiting for.

 

Once secrets are told and the sparks fly, Nadie’s new life becomes something she never thought possible. However there’s another realm at play and Jace and Nadie’s dragon will have to fight harder than he’s ever fought before to keep the life he’s waited eons for.

 

Warning: Contains one not-so-innocent human, a bear known for his bear-hugs, a tattooed and pierced dragon with a fiery temper, and a connection so explosive, you’ll be fanning yourself from page one.

Review:

Well it was definitely worth the wait! Carrie Ann Ryan hit it out of the park again! I’ve waited for the story of Dante and Nadie for so long. There was so much pent up energy as their story line drew near. The stares between the two, back and forth at the bar during the girls night out sequences. And to add another mate to the mix?! Wow, Carrie Ann, what sugar you drinking on to inspire your characters? I want some of that! LOL But Seriously, she never let’s me down with her novel’s and that’s why she is a best seller.

This story had it all and I think the best fight sequences out of all the Dante’s Circle Series. The fact that even after a very long wait to be able to mate with Nadie and Jace, the possibility of deterring it longer would make any man/dragon go off the deep end. Nadie unable to wait any long for Dante to make the first move, chose to make  a decision that could cost them the possibility of a relationship in the long run. And let’s not forget the missing link that Nadie is not even made aware of, Jace. He was finishing up his duties as a Mediator of the Realms that took sometimes years to complete.

Okay Carrie Ann Ryan, on to the next.  Looking forward to the next installment of Dante’s Circle. 🙂

With her blue-black hair and striking green eyes, Cailin Jamenson is the epitome of beauty and the exemplar of strength. She has fought the enforced boundaries of being the lone Jamenson daughter and Redwood Pack princess, but it is the potential future with the dark wolf in her path that threatens everything she thought she desired.

Logan Anderson’s own darkness provided the reasoning for his abandonment of his former Pack, the Talons. Now, newly accepted into the Redwood Pack, this jade-eyed wolf and all she represents could be his own undoing.

Dante’s Circle Book 3.5

Releases May 27, 2014

As the youngest son of Lucifer, Fawkes has long since known what paths his future could take. He could follow his father’s footsteps, stealing the souls of humans and slowly lose his own, or starve himself and wither away until he finds his true half and forms a bond that can not only save his life, but his soul.

Leslie Masterson’s life has been one torment after another. A submissive wolf, she’s tried to hide in the shadows of her Pack and find the will to live another day. After her brother—the man who has beaten her verbally and physically her entire life—is killed when he challenges the Alpha, Leslie finally sees a path to freedom.

It only takes one look between the two for them to know that they could be the answer to each other’s prayers, but some of the Pack isn’t ready to let Leslie go. It will take the strength of a fiery demon from hell and the love of a submissive wolf to overcome not only their past, but their chance at a future.

His Choice was also found in the Ever After Anthology .
