Today we have an excerpt from Carrie Ann Ryan's newest book, AN ALPHA'S CHOICE! Check it out!
The Bestselling Redwood Pack continues with the Talon Pack series.
A Broken Wolf. A Fractured Bond. A Fate Denied.
Brynn Brentwood has spent the whole of her life protecting the Talon Pack through terrors only she will ever know. She’s never asked for more in life other than to live to take her next breath and to ensure her family is safe. Regardless of her selfless wishes and the atrocities the former Alpha committed, she has always known that fate would provide for her as it had countless others. Fate is what has carried her through with one exception—upon meeting the one wolf who could be hers, he doesn’t feel their bond.
Finn Jamenson has been broken more than once, left beaten and half dead—and that was before he was an adult and Heir of the Redwood Pack. When called upon to work with their allies, the Talons, he finds himself intrigued with a woman who his wolf doesn’t claim as his own. Though he knows there could be something there, he refuses to tempt himself with a wolf who could never be his when his own mate could waiting for him.
The world changed in a blink of time and now the two wolves must fight as one—ignoring the burning temptation between them—when their people are threatened. With one wrong move, their homes could be destroyed and its up to Finn and Brynn to save them all…if only they could save themselves.
“Thank you for saving my daughter,” the mother said again, tears in her voice.
Finn nodded, his face solemn. “I’m glad I could help.”
A paramedic looked toward Finn and raised a brow. “You need a bandage for that?” the man asked, curiosity in his tone.
Brynn stepped forward, holding out her hand. “That would be great. I’ll help him though so you can take care of the little girl.” She met the man’s eyes then purposely looked around them. They’d gathered a crowd, and while the Packs had wanted them to blend in, this wasn’t the best way to do it.
“Sure. No problem.” The paramedic handed her a few bandages and shrugged. She wasn’t sure that was going with protocol, but she didn’t care. Not when Finn was still bleeding and she needed to get them both out of there. Now.
“Thanks.” She turned to Finn. “Ready?” One of the cops nodded at her and she sighed. “Let’s get this over with.”
Finn tilted his head, and she knew he was confused. She couldn’t act on character because she didn’t know how to act around him. He was hurt, and she needed to take care of him. But she also couldn’t show that she needed that. It was a mess, and now she had to play nice for the humans.
Things had gone to hell, and it was only the beginning.
And for some reason, she felt like it would always be the beginning. At least until something happened that made more than one wolf bleed.
And when that day came, she wasn’t sure what she would do.
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.
