Forbidden Seduction (Lee County Wolves, #2)

synopsis

Hunter Foster single-handedly ousted the shifter community after shifting in front of humans to protect a Vampire Council Warrior. With no regrets, he heads home to answer for his crime of breaking an outdated law.

Back in his town, he is faced with rogue packs challenging their alpha, his brother, as well as the woman he has spent years avoiding. Finally, he has to come to terms with what his wolf has been telling him and what he as a man has been fighting against

kristis review

What can I say about the craziness that is Hunter? He’s a wolf that makes you want to smack him and melts your panties at the same time!!
We came to know Hunter in Forbidden Hunger, but came to love when he protected Jill in A Warrior Wedding, now he’s back home to face the consequences of his actions of showing the world shifters are real.
Wow, I can’t get over how much Hunter grew from Garrett’s book being with the Warriors was soo good for him. Then again being with them would be good for anybody!!!
Emily is human living under the protection of the Lee County Pack and has been since she was a kid and she’s been in love with Hunter since he and his brothers came to town.
Love Emily, she’s such a firecracker!! She has taken shit for years and isn’t about to anymore and lets everyone, including Hunter, know it.
The interaction between those two breaks my heart and makes me happy at the same time! Finding out about Hunter’s childhood makes things understandable but it still hard, and seeing the way he is willing to do anything to make up the way he treated Emily as a teenager shows just how much he has grown.
When a group comes to town to try and take over all kinds of shit goes down and the Lee county pack kicks ass!!
I can’t wait for Marcus’s book and I hope his mate is who I think it is!!
OMG!!!! I forgot one of the best things of the book!!!!! Our resident VC Warrior comedian Steve is sent to help the pack with the Shifters and what the outing of them means with the government. Steve finding a girl he “likes” in town and the way it is dealt with is hilarious!!!
Oh! Oh! Oh!! And my hubby and sister wife Slade and Jill come to town too!!!

#Review Buried and Shadowed (Branded Packs Book 3) by Alexandra Ivy and Carrie Ann Ryan

buriedandshadowed

About BURIED AND SHADOWED

The Branded Packs Series from NYT Bestselling Authors Alexandra Ivy and Carrie Ann Ryan continues with two dark and heated shifter romances…

Buried

Gibson Barton knows his Pack is on the verge of something they will never be able to prepare for: a chance at freedom. Yet when he’s finally able to open his eyes to what might be his fate, it could be too late.

As a submissive wolf of her Pack, Mandy Calhoun has always only watched Gibson from afar. Because of her fears, she hasn’t let her intentions toward him—or the other in her sights—be known.

Oliver Dare is the Foreseer of the Ursine Pack, and knows with each vision, his death is that much closer. Yet he cannot see his own future—or that of the two wolves who have been thrust into his path.

There is danger lurking in the den, and as the three learn to process their emotions and navigate their temptations, they’ll have to fight for something they never knew they had—or sacrifice it all for a purpose far greater than their own destinies.

Shadowed

Sinclair, Alpha of the Unseen Pack, is determined to destroy the Shifter Accommodation Unit. He understands that his people will never be free until the truth is revealed and their enemies are brought out of the shadows and exposed to the public. Unfortunately, the human female who has been secretly working with him has disappeared, and his priorities must shift slightly. He’s resolved to track her down, and not just because she has the information he needs.

Mira Reese isn’t stupid. She’s painfully aware that the sexy shifter she’s been working with has been using her fascination for him to gain access to the CDC computer system. But that doesn’t stop her from helping Sinclair. Not when it allows her to be close to him. But after the CDC kidnaps her, she realizes that this isn’t a game. She’s a potential savior for the future of the shifters—and perhaps especially the loner wolf who stirs her passions.

kristis review

I received a copy for a honest review.

Ok, a little back story for anyone who hasn’t read the series.
The Verona Virus has just about wiped out the humans, the only cure is from the shifters. When they come forward, they are put into compounds, collared, and branded.
With the events that have happened in books 1 & 2 the wolves, feline, and ursine shifters have all been placed in one compound.
Oh, and YAY there’s 2 stories in every book!!
Now onto Buried!!
Buried is all about Mandy a submissive wolf, Gibson the hunky loner wolf that does all the tattoos for the packs, his compound and others, and Oliver is the Foreseer of the Ursine pack.
Things are about to change for the captured shifters, but they’re gonna get rough first.
Oliver knows something is coming, but anything having to do with him he can not see and now he can not see anything about Mandy and Gibson.
Gibson has never felt the need to be around others, and now he finds out something and only two people can calm him; Mandy and Oliver. Mandy knows that as a submissive wolf that she isn’t as strong as the more dominant wolves and she’s ok with that, but there’s something about Oliver and Gibson that makes her strong.
These three finding their way together is so awesome, I’ve been wondering about Gibson for a while and I never thought that Mandy would have these two awesome men as her mates, I was sure it was someone else!!
And Oliver!! Omg!! When he showed up in book 2 I sooo had to know more!! That this triad happens is was fate!! Gibson and Mandy do a awesome job at keeping Oliver grounded with his gift, Mandy and Oliver do the same for keeping Gibson calm with his. You may wonder what Oliver and Gibson do for Mandy, they give her strength. Being a dominate wolf is one thing, but it takes great strength to be a submissive wolf that the dominants can depend on.
They’ve had to worry about the SAU, Shifter Accommodation Unit, for years and now they have to worry about a inside the compound danger too.
I did not see this danger coming at all!! Ivy and Ryan do a great job of keeping you on your toes!!
Now onto Shadowed!!
Sinclair is the Alpha of the Unseen pack. The Unseen are a group of shifters that managed not to be put into compounds and are hidden in plan sight of the SAU, some going as far as to be working for them. They are trying to find a link from the Virus to the SAU, so they can expose it and the the captured shifters released.
As the Alpha he has been leading the charge against the SAU, using means necessary, even using Mira Reese, the human that finds him attractive.
Yes, Mira from finds Sinclair attractive, but she knows he’s using her for her clearance and skill; that doesn’t stop her from trying to help.
Sinclair, mmmmm, when he showed up my heart skipped a beat. He knows that what he has asked of Mira is dangerous, it’s for the good old his people, but he’s been meeting her more than he should and now that she’s missing he’s going crazy!! If Mira was a shifter, she’d be a alpha female cause lord knows she’s the only one that Sinclair let’s call him on his shit and can get away with half the stuff she pulls. These guys back and forth is so funny and they work together so well. When they finally take down the SAU, and the persons that created it, it makes me so happy that the bad guys got what’s coming to them, yet sad that the series has come to a end.
Or is it?!?!
You gotta check it out, but definitely pick up books one and two first you won’t regret it.

About Carrie Ann Ryan

New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan never thought she’d be a writer. Not really. No, she loved math and science and even went on to graduate school in chemistry. Yes, she read as a kid and devoured teen fiction and Harry Potter, but it wasn’t until someone handed her a romance book in her late teens that she realized that there was something out there just for her. When another author suggested she use the voices in her head for good and not evil, The Redwood Pack and all her other stories were born.

Carrie Ann is a bestselling author of over twenty novels and novellas and has so much more on her mind (and on her spreadsheets *grins*) that she isn’t planning on giving up her dream anytime soon.

#ReleaseDay #Review Lured By My Master (The Doms of Genesis 6) by Jenna Jacob

Lured by My Master RB Banner

6x9Template

Synopsis

How far would you go for love? Would you strip away your defenses? Confront your fears? Unlock your darkest secrets? Risk your heart without any promise of tomorrow?

I, Cindy Noland, ER Nurse have fallen crazy-in-love with sinfully sexy Dr. Samuel Brooks, only to discover he’s been hiding a kinky alter ego: Master Sam. Confronting him tossed me into a mysterious new world that incited my every fear, made my heart race, and left me questioning everything I knew about myself. Now I have only two options: gather the pieces of my heart and walk away, or lay my soul bare to venture into the sensual unknown with a man whose heart might never be mine?

Just how far would I go for love?

kristis review

I received a copy of this book for a honest review

Cindy Noland is a charge nurse of the ER and has a backbone of steel. She also has been dating hunky Dr. Sam Brooks, for three months. Little does she know that the hunky doc has a secret. When she starts to think that he’s cheating she does what any woman would do, try to kick him to the curb.
Now Sam has to share his secret and Cindy is in NO way ready for it. Sam isn’t cheating, he is in fact Master Sam and wants to help Cindy to bring out her submissive side.
What happens is a journey through one strong willed woman’s mind, heart, and soul.
First off, the chemistry between these two is panty melting!! Second, to see Cindy struggle so hard with what she thinks is right and what she thinks she wants, is heartbreaking. Finally, to see the breakthrough that she has to the sub inside is utterly breathtaking.
Sam being the Master that he is knows what he wants and he gets it in the end, but it isn’t a easy road by any means. There’s crazy ex’s, heartbreak, and very stubborn people.
While the story between Master Sam and Cindy is hot, for me the story of Cindy finding herself so that she can see the submissive within is THE story and asking her friends for help is when she breaks just reminds us that’s what friends are for, to lean one direction ring the hard times.
They say it that a village to raise a child, well it takes a kinky village to help a sub find herself.

#Review ROAR by Kallypso Masters

image

synopsis

Haunted by a tragic accident that yanked his beloved wife from his side, Kristoffer Roar Larson has been going through the motions in life. But when he meets the dedicated surgeon and humanitarian, Pamela Jeffrey, he feels an undeniable connection to her, stirring feelings he’d buried long ago. After encountering her in a compromising position on a tour of a BDSM academy, he realizes there’s more to her than meets the eye. Fascinated by her assertive alpha personality, coupled with her desire to submit and serve, Pamela intrigues him.

As Pamela shines light once more into the dark corners of his life, Kristoffer finds himself struggling between remaining in his safe and lonely world or emotionally opening himself up to a vibrant woman, who asks for nothing more than he’s able to give. Guiding her in mind-training exercises to prepare her for some future Dom, Kristoffer finds his body awakening as well. Will Kristoffer be able to close the door to his past and open his heart to the ginger-haired sprite who makes him question everything he once believed?

ROAR is a standalone novel that has some familiar secondary characters from Rescue Me Saga, but the main characters are new. You don’t have to read the series to fully enjoy this book.

kristis review

The things you will need to get through this book are: tissues, wine, and ice cream. Oh, and tell your family they’re on their own until you finish!!!

Roar is a standalone, but its characters are side characters from Kallypso’s Rescue Me Saga.
Kristoffer Roar Larson, is financial adviser to his cousin Gunner. After tragedy struck his marriage his life has been home, work, and the facility that takes care of his beloved wife.
Pamela Jeffrey, is a surgeon who goes to other countries to help in war torn areas.
She also is a Alpha sub trying to find her way.
Working together on a project for Gunner they spend more time together and get to know each other.
By spending more time together they learn that Kristoffer is the Dom to help Pamela learn more about herself as a sub and he gets to be the Dom he once was.
This is by no means a ménage story.
While Kristoffer still loves his wife, by getting to know more about Pamela as they work together he learns that he can live again since his wife Tori isn’t coming back to him, he’s just got to come to grips with the guilt he fills.
Pamela knows, as a Dr and as a woman, that Kristoffer isn’t going to leave his wife but she can love him and help him deal with the way he feels about finally getting on with is life.
Omg, the way that Kristoffer loves Tori is so heartbreaking and the way the Pamela helps deal with him and love him during Tori’s rough times is wonderful.
I cried sooo many tears during this its not funny. These three people are just beautiful inside and out. Watching Pamela come into her own as a sub, Kristoffer returning to the land of the living, and the to of them with Tori is breathtaking.
Even if you’ve not read any of the Rescue Me Saga, you have to read this story!!!!!
If this were s the first Kallypso Masters book you read, you will be hooked and have to read the rest!!

Kallypso Masters writes emotional, realistic Romance novels with dominant males (for the most part) and the strong women who can bring them to their knees. She also has brought many readers to their knees–having them experience the stories right along with her characters in the Rescue Me Saga. Kally knows that Happily Ever After takes maintenance, so her couples don’t solve all their problems and disappear at “the end” of their Romance, but will continue to work on real problems in their relationships in later books in the saga.

Kally has been writing full-time since May 2011, having quit her “day job” the month before. She lives in rural Kentucky and has been married for almost 32 years to the man who provided her own Happily Ever After. They have two adult children, one adorable grandson, and a rescued dog.

#Review Take All of Me (Second Chances Book 3) By Isobelle Cate

image

synopsis

Nothing goes according to plan.

Everything goes according to the heart.

Oliver Cray was sent to Texas to capture Denholm Holbrook, a job he thought would be easy as long as he did everything by the book and stuck to protocol. Protocol dictated that a family should be informed of someone’s death through the proper channels.

Oliver breaks protocol for one reason: Felicity Holbrook.
The first time he saw her, he wanted her.
The moment he touched her, he vowed to protect her.
But he carries a secret that can destroy whatever chance he has with her.

Felicity knows that Oliver is dangerous, not just because of what he does, but because she knows he can break her heart. Knowing that nothing can come out of a relationship with him, she avoids him. Problem is, events keep conspiring to keep them together until tragedy tears them apart.

Amidst the backdrop of death and danger, Oliver and Felicity must learn to be strong and to learn to forgive if they want to have a chance at a life together.

kristis review

Received a copy for a honest review

Omg!! This has to be my favorite book of the series!! We met Oliver Cray and Felicity Holbrook in back in book one. Felicity is Luke’s little sister that has been disowned my her mother and their father and Oliver is the agent that brought her drug dealing father in and then then dealt with him when he escaped in book 2.
Neither has been unable to stop thinking of the other since they first met, but Oliver doesn’t do relationships especially with “rich girls”, and Felicity has been hurt before so she herself stays clear too.
These two together are HOT!! Between a disgruntled drug lord trying to kill her and his jealous boss they find a way to come together and make it work.
There’s lots of action, in and out of the bedroom, and it keeps you on your toes.
Oliver and Felicity are what the other needs. For her, he is the man that’s going to stay, that she can give her heart to and he sees her for her and not her family. For him, she is the person that he can depend on, that regardless of her place in society she loves him.
Love these two so much, and it doesn’t hurt that every time Oliver talks all I can see is Tom Hardy!! Lol

#Review You and I (Second Chances Book 2) Isobelle Cate

image

synopsis

Serenity wanted to escape her past. Matt needed to finish his mission. Danger insisted on keeping them together.
Everyone deserves a second chance, right?
Wrong.
Serenity Beresford was as mean as they came. A bitch, a whore, a druggie, and any other word that could describe a good for nothing person. She was also a victim. Because of the hurt she caused so many and the sympathy she acquired from so few, she spiralled into believing that she was only good at hurting people, only good for being used and thrown away like a rag doll, only good enough to be a pawn in sick men’s games. When she decides that this vicious cycle of her life needs to stop, the repercussions of escaping hounds her everywhere she goes. Until the evil that snared her in the beginning is destroyed, she has no hope of being free.
Matt Reed is a womanizer, a man who doesn’t believe there’s a woman who can tame his heart. An undercover agent for the DEA, he returns to Windswept ahead of a drug exchange. This will be his last mission before he hands in his badge and works for his family’s conglomerate, but his plan slowly unravels at the hands of another guest in Windswept, the woman with russet colored hair and eyes that seem to peer into his very soul to see the ugliness inside.
Serenity has learned not to fall or trust any man, yet she can’t stop the attraction she feels for Matt. When the evil stalking Serenity follows her to Windswept, she has no choice but to trust him to keep her safe. It will take all of Matt’s cunning to bust the drug ring wide open and protect Serenity in the process, the woman he can’t let go.  The woman who made him believe in second chances.

kristis review

Received a copy for a honest review

Serenity Beresford, aka Cilla Williams, is someone who really deserves a second chance. Saving her ex’s son from her drug dealer and giving the authorities the means to put him away was her start, changing countries and her looks puts her on a even stronger path.
Matt Reed is undercover, but has done a lot in his past that he’s trying to make right.
These two come together at a very inopportune time, but love doesn’t always come at the best time.
I really feel for Serenity in this book, she is so sure that no one is going to love her after they find out what kind of person that she was and so she tries so hard to stay away from anyone who makes her feel anything. The pain she feels is so real that you can’t help but feel it too.
Matt is knocked off his guard the first time he see Serenity, since a woman is not want he’s looking for but he can’t get her out of his and his focus is not what it should me.
When Serenity’s past and the undercover op that Matt is on come together, it makes for a scary situation!!
These two are each other’s Second Chance and it’s beautiful to see, and it makes it even more so when you know who Serenity was and who she is now.
I excited to see who is next to get their second chance!!

#Review #Contemporary Be Mine (Second Chances Book 1) by Isobelle Cate

synopsis

Gracie Sinclair just wants life to return to normal.

Now a widow and picking up the pieces after the death of her husband, she delves into her work, seeking a new normal, until she bumps into a handsome stranger who derails her orderly life, completely.

Luke can’t wait for the week to be over. Having built an engineering company into a multi-million pound enterprise in record time, he feels…empty. Nothing satisfies him anymore, not even having weekenders in his bed. But when he bumps into a woman—literally—on his way out of a bar, realizing she is his last meeting before he goes on holiday, his plan of staying away from relationships takes a nose dive. He wants Gracie Sinclair.

Gracie learned a long time ago how insincere love can be, so when Luke decides to become part of her life, she tosses up every obstacle to dissuade him until he breaks down her walls and makes her realize that her life can only be complete with Luke by her side.

However, something sinister from Luke’s past threatens the happiness they have struggled to find. If he concedes, he will become criminally liable and lose everything.

If he refuses, he loses Gracie’s heart…

kristis review

Received a copy for a honest review
Gracie is a widow who had a douche bag for a husband and Luke is a man whore, but that changes for him when they literally run smack into each other and he can’t stop thinking about her, though he doesn’t know her name or anything and even though she has built a walls around her after her shit marriage, they start to shake after their run in.
It’s amazing how fast attraction is for some people!!
The second time they meet, he knows there’s something different about her and it makes him want her more even when she tells him no and that she’s married. For all of his man whoring ways he’s honorable and backs off at that point, still he can’t stop thinking about her and he no longer backs off when he finds out she is no longer married. No matter how much she pushes him away, he just keeps pushing back until she lets him in and they find love within each other.
I love how strong he is for her when his past comes back to haunt them and when he thinks she is going to end them because of it, his plan is to let her have space but he’s not going to give up on them, thankfully it doesn’t come to that though because she knows he was being hurt too.
This story, like the series implies, is all about second chances. Gracie is given a second chance at love and Luke by loving Gracie is given a second chance at having a family.
Yes, like I said attraction is fast for some people, all it takes is a split second meeting to know you have found your someone and for Luke and Gracie that first crash into each other was all they needed to find the someone who would break down walls and make them want to change for the better.

#Review #Military Irresistible Seal Box Set by Amanda Heartly

image

synopsis

Smokin’ Hot Military Romance!
Get the Complete Series of Irresistible SEAL in this Exclusive Box Set!
After an unhappy childhood, Luke Carter joined the US Navy and has dedicated the last twelve years of his life to the SEALs. But the relentless overseas tours have taken their toll on his mind and body and now he dreams of what life might be like outside the military. Love, romance, his own space—maybe even a family he can call his own.

Juliet Morgan works in the fast-paced world of finance. Beautiful, headstrong and smart, she chooses her career over love and puts all of her energy into her new job—a job she was ‘persuaded’ to take far away from her beloved Manhattan by her rich, overbearing father. She’s not looking for romance, but feels lonely and lost in her new environment so she turns to online retail therapy to lift her spirits and accidentally stumbles across a dating site where she’s awestruck by Luke Carter.

The sparks flicker to a roaring flame with each sizzling message between them—then the battlefield nearly claims Luke’s life and he’s rushed home to the States. Although he’s only an hour away from Juliet, in his mind everything’s changed and his pride gets in the way of the love, passion, and happiness they both so desperately crave.

Can Juliet break down the walls of this irresistible SEAL, or are they both destined to a life of loneliness?

kristis review

Received a copy for a honest review

This box set has all three books of the series so you don’t miss one bit.
Juliet is a woman who has been up rooted from a life she loves in Manhattan, by her father, to a life she hates in L.A. She has decided to prove to her father that he hasn’t totally screwed up her life by learning to love her new city and job.
Luke is a Navy Seal deployed overseas, who has signed up for a military dating website to try and find himself some back home, whether it be a Ms. Right or a Ms. Right Now. Juliet finds the dating site purely by accident but signs up anyways, and when she finds Luke’s profile she’s drawn to him.
First off let me say HELLO HUNKY SAILOR!!! Juliet and Luke really start getting to know each other and to like what they learn.
I love how when Luke comes home hurt she goes to him, no they’ve never actually met until then but they’ve gotten to know each other so well she can’t help but go to him.
Heartly writes about how a wounded solider feels and what they go through mentally so very well, you can’t help but be there and feel it too.
Juliet and Luke go through and over come a lot to make it, but make it they do.
The only thing I do wish is that Heartly showed Juliet’s father just how great her life became, but since they didn’t get along I understand the reason behind him not being in the book other then the first introduction of him.

about the author

Courtney’s love for writing dates back to short stories on a word processor (What?? Word processor with floppy disks?). Oh yes, she literally had a card filing case full of floppy disks. Now she continues her writing (she upgraded to a laptop) while living in Southern Ohio with her husband and son.

Although Courtney has always lived in Ohio, sometimes closer to the Ohio River and sometimes further away, she dreams of the mountain ranges out west and the sandy Florida beaches. She married the man of her dreams and had a beautiful blond haired blue eyed boy. Before she sought publication for her first book The Sixth Domicile: Book One of the Domicile Series, Courtney worked as a social worker in a mental health agency where she counseled and provided therapy. After she left full time work, she taught social sciences at a local university and began a photography business. The “extra” time gave her the ability to focus on writing again.

Courtney’s background in social work fuels the grit in her stories. When Courtney isn’t writing her next book, you can find her doing homework (drag) and sipping flavored coffee, reading young adult and new adult books (because social work text books are only so interesting), or daydreaming about all the future beach houses she intends to buy.

#Cover Reveal!! Love Restored (A Gallagher Brothers Novel) by Carrie Ann Ryan

The first book in a Montgomery Ink spin-off series, LOVE RESTORED by Carrie Ann Ryan, was announced on USA Today HEA yesterday, and we’re so thrilled to bring you a first look at LOVE RESTORED today!

 

Love RestoredAbout LOVE RESTORED

In the first of a Montgomery Ink spin-off series from NYT Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan, a broken man uncovers the truth of what it means to take a second chance with the most unexpected woman…

Graham Gallagher has seen it all. And when tragedy struck, lost it all. He’s been the backbone of his brothers, the one they all rely on in their lives and business. And when it comes to falling in love and creating a life, he knows what it’s like to have it all and watch it crumble. He’s done with looking for another person to warm his bed, but apparently he didn’t learn his lesson because the new piercer at Montgomery Ink tempts him like no other.

Blake Brennen may have been born a trust fund baby, but she’s created a whole new life for herself in the world of ink, piercings, and freedom. Only the ties she’d thought she’d cut long ago aren’t as severed as she’d believed. When she finds Graham constantly in her path, she knows from first glance that he’s the wrong kind of guy for her. Except that Blake excels at making the wrong choice and Graham might be the ultimate temptation for the bad girl she’d thought long buried.

Get a sneak peek at LOVE RESTORED:

Graham Gallagher had never craved a cigarette as much as he did just then. It didn’t matter that he’d quit smoking over fifteen years ago cold turkey and hadn’t picked one up since then. He just wanted a damn smoke.

Scratch that.

He wanted a fucking cigarette, a beer, and a willing woman underneath him as he fucked her until they were both spent.

And not necessarily in that order.

Not that he’d get any of that any time soon. Between this new job, the old one they hadn’t fully completed yet, and the rest of the crap in his life, he wasn’t sure he’d even have time for a beer.

And considering it had been a long six months since he’d had a woman under him, he was pretty sure he wouldn’t be getting laid any time soon. Him and his right hand had a perfectly nice relationship for now and when he got downright dangerous, he got to know his left.

Jesus, he needed coffee or something at this point if he was thinking about how his left hand would be something different in his life.

He ran a hand through his dark hair and grimaced as he caught some tangles as he pulled it out of the rubber band. He wasn’t sure he’d brushed it that morning, instead just throwing it up in a tie at the back of his head as soon as he’d gotten out of the shower. At least he’d showered, he thought. Considering he’d slept for shit the night before, a shower after sweat-slick dreams had been the only recourse. He quickly ran his hand through it a few more times, getting out most of the rat’s nest and pulled it back up before the owner of their new project showed up and called him a heathen.

Graham sighed, sliding his hand over his beard to straighten it out. Since it had grown past his chin and almost touched his chest if he lowered his head just right, he already looked the part of a heathen to some. Add in the ink covering his body and the piercings only those in his bed could see, he didn’t fit the ideal image of a business man that someone of this caliber would want to work with.

And that was just find with him.

About Carrie Ann Ryan

New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan never thought she’d be a writer. Not really. No, she loved math and science and even went on to graduate school in chemistry. Yes, she read as a kid and devoured teen fiction and Harry Potter, but it wasn’t until someone handed her a romance book in her late teens that she realized that there was something out there just for her. When another author suggested she use the voices in her head for good and not evil, The Redwood Pack and all her other stories were born.

Carrie Ann is a bestselling author of over twenty novels and novellas and has so much more on her mind (and on her spreadsheets *grins*) that she isn’t planning on giving up her dream anytime soon.
