Guest Author Wednesday’s ♥ Carrie Ann Ryan + Giveaway

Hello everyone! It’s Wednesday again and I’m thrilled to have bestselling Paranormal Romance Author Carrie Ann Ryan with me today. Carrie Ann’s the author of the delightfully sexy wolf/witch/human ménage story, Trinity Bound.

After spending too much time behind a lab bench, she decided to dive into the romance world and find her werewolf mate – even if its just in her books. Happy endings are always near – even if you have to get over the challenges of falling in love first.

Her first book, An Alpha’s Path, is the first in her Redwood Pack series. She’s also an avid reader and lover of romance and fiction novels. She loves meeting new authors and new worlds. Any recommendations you have are appreciated. Carrie Ann lives in New England with her husband and two kittens.

Since we’re on the subject, here’s a little about Trinity Bound – Book 3 in the Redwood Pack Series

Hannah Lewis, a rare earth witch, is taken from the only life she’s ever known. Held at her will by a sadistic wolf, she almost gives up hope that she’d ever see her real life again. But as her fellow captive, a werewolf named Reed, tries to calm her fears, she begins to feel a spark of something she never thought she’d feel – love. But is Reed, alone, enough to get her out of this dark basement so she can move on with her life?

Reed Jamenson, the artist of a werewolf Pack of Alpha males, knows instinctually that Hannah is his mate. Thus, despite their imprisonment, he will do all to protect her and then worry about their hearts. But is he strong enough to find a way for both of them to escape? And why does he feel as though something else is missing?

Josh Kolb, an ex-military human, stumbles upon Reed and Hannah and finds he must trust this new world of supernatural beings to survive. But that desire will lead the three to a triangle of attraction that will test the boundaries they all possess and its consequences in defeating the enemy. Can they all trust one another to save themselves and life as they know it? Even at the cost of their own hearts?

I love the triangle, especially with two sexy, bi- men!

Carrie Ann loves hearing from readers. And, every commenter will be entered to win a $5 GC from Amazon.com and a Swag Pack! Happy commenting :c)

A Note from Josh

Hi everyone! I’m Josh, from Carrie Ann’s Trinity Bound, book 3 in the Redwood Pack series. Carrie Ann asked me to take over and talk about what it’s like to be a human in a paranormal world.

Well, let me tell you, it’s interesting.

You see, I knew about the paranormal before I even met my mates, Reed and Hannah. Yes, I said mates. As in plural. But that’s another story.

Before I met them, I was a SEAL and saw too much. I knew the things that went bump in the night weren’t the dreams of adolescents, but the real thing. Scary isn’t it?

But even though I knew they existed, I didn’t have any real interaction with them. Well, that is until I met Reed and Hannah. Suddenly I wasn’t an outsider, but a true participant in the paranormal war. The Centrals, a bad Pack of evil werewolves, had taken Reed and Hannah. And somehow, it had lain on my shoulders to protect them.

Even looking back on everything that had happened, I don’t regret it. Because now I have my artist of a werewolf and my sweet witch by my side.

You see, once you know the paranormal exists, you can’t unknow it. Werewolves rule as a Pack and are family oriented. At least the good guys. There are witches and demons in the world. Everything you had thought you knew is now different.

As a human, you feel weak, useless. Until you realize your mates are by your side and let you find your own strength. That’s what it feels like to be Pack.

Watching a man shift to a wolf is beyond jarring, but something you get used to. It’s a daily part of my new life and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Excerpt:

Snowflakes stuck to Josh’s eyelashes and he bat them away. A strong gust blew past him, the cold chilling his bones. He surveyed his surroundings, taking a silent step through the undergrowth. Tall trees reached to the sky, blocking whatever sunlight filtered through the dreary storm clouds. Their limbs heavy with leaves and the extra weight of collecting snow drooped down, dropping snow bundles on his shoulder and in one unfortunate incident, his face. If only he could have Found these two in the nice spring or cool fall months. No, he had to search for them in the onset of winter and the beginning of what looked to be a deadly snow storm. Lucky guy.

When he left his bench on Main Street, he had quickly gone home to fetch some of his equipment. He dressed warmer, grabbed a pack with extra clothes for Reed and the witch, some food and water, and weapons. Lots of weapons. Knifes and blades of various shapes and sizes adorned his body. He had his SIG strapped to his side, with extra ammo in his belt. Sadly he didn’t have any silver, but lead would at least slow the beasts down if they came after him.

And they would. Because as he followed the trail in his mind to this remote bunker, his sense of unease swelled to a staggering sensation. Crap, he might not make it this time. He was but one man. One human at that. But looking down at the lair that held two people that he needed to find, he set aside those worries and the creeps it gave off. The two of them were more important – for some unknown reason. And if anyone truly knew him, they would know that it was freaking hard to give Josh the creeps. But he ignored those chills as well.

 

Don’t forget about books One and Two! Here’s a little on them as well :c)

Melanie is a twenty-five year old chemist who has spent all of her adult life slaving at school. With her PhD in hand, she’s to start her dream job, but before she does, her friend persuades her to relax and try to live again. A blind date set up through her friends seems like the perfect solution. Melanie can take one night away from the lab and let her inner vixen out on a fixed blind date – a chance to get crazy with a perfect stranger. The gorgeous hunk she’s to meet exceeds her wildest dreams – but he is more than what he appears and Melanie’s analytical mind goes into overdrive.

Kade, a slightly older werewolf (at over one hundred years), needs a night way from the Pack. Too many responsibilities and one near miss with a potential mate made Kade hide in his work, the only peace he can find. His brother convinces him to meet the sexy woman for a one night of fun. What could it hurt? But when he finds this woman could be his mate, can he convince her to leave her orderly, sane world and be with him and his wolf-half, for life?

             

Jasper Jamenson’s only responsibility to being the Beta of the Redwood Pack, second son of the Alpha, is to protect the Pack from themselves and the human world. After a century of selfless service, his brother’s new found mating forced him into taking a good look into his life. He isn’t sure he wants a mate, but fate may have other ideas.

Willow Delton is a skinny, bakery owner – the type most woman love to hate. Being without family, she finds herself alone to the Greek god with green eyes who saunters into her bakery every morning. Her desire to follow him, to be with him, overrides every rational sense she possessed.

Jasper and Willow are drawn together, despite every nuisance that works against them. But evil beyond even Jasper’s supernatural compensation will make war against him, by going after the only thing in his eternal life he desires – Willow. Is Willow’s heart enough to overcome Jasper’s soul to save her life? A fight he cannot win, but to save her life – he must.
