The next in a new dark and gritty paranormal series, Abandoned and Unseen continue the journey with NYT Bestselling Authors Alexandra Ivy and Carrie Ann Ryan.
When bear shifter Anya Tucker fell in love with the wrong man, the only thing she left with was a broken heart—and her two bear cubs. Now she’s mended her wounds and learned that in order to raise her babies she can only trust herself. When her sons meet the lazy cat next door and fall heads over tails for him, she’ll do whatever she takes to protect them—even from a past she’d thought she’d left behind.
Cole McDermott is a jaguar on a mission. Long naps, a willing woman, and a full stomach is usually all he needs when it comes to relaxing after a long day of protecting his Pack. Then he meets Anya and the burn of temptation is silky and tantalizing indeed. When a horror from Anya’s past threatens everything she loves, Cole will put everything aside and fight for her family—as well as his own.
She fell asleep quickly after a long day of worrying and shifting, though that damn cat was never far from her mind. He invaded her dreams; that spicy scent overwhelming her until she woke up early the next morning, her body slick with sweat and her thighs coated with her orgasm.
The damn cat had given her an actual wet dream.
She needed to go on a run for real this time. Or maybe find a willing bear, who didn’t mind that she was tainted goods. On that depressing thought, she quickly got ready for the morning, showering and brushing her teeth even though her body wanted to go back to sleep and have another dream.
As she was walking out to the kitchen for coffee, she inhaled, wanting the sense of family to wash over her senses and push out the weird dreams. Only, when she took a deep breath, the scent of her boys wasn’t as strong as it should have been. In fact, she could only scent the fact that they lived in the house, not that they were actually in the house.
Though she started to panic, she tamped down her bear and ran into the boys’ room, only to find two rumpled beds and an open window.
No. No no no no. They hadn’t been kidnapped or taken from her home. They could have opened the window for air and went into Oliver’s room. Only that didn’t account for the lack of scent.
Maybe they’d snuck out again and went to that damn cat.
Her hackles rose.
That fucking cat.
Nicole Bradley had no reason to live after the humans murdered her son. Not until she learns to hunt down those responsible for his death. Shifting into her wolf form at night, she slips out of the compound, determined to do as much damage as possible. The last thing she expected was to discover secrets that could destroy the SAU.
Polar shifter, Tucker Stone, lives off the grid. It’s the only way the Unseen can avoid being rounded up by the humans and tossed into a compound. Besides, he’s a loner by nature. But he can’t walk away when he sees the pretty female wolf in danger. Risking exposure, he takes her to his hidden den and tries to heal her wounds.
Can a reclusive polar bear and a wolf with a death wish find happiness together?
Carrie Ann Ryan Bio:
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.
