Guest post: Fighting Fate by Carrie Ann Ryan


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.
In this final installment of the Redwood Pack, unimaginable tragedy strikes, and the two wolves who have fought the longest for their independence now face the uncertainty of fate and the epic battle that could end the war… and their lives.

Alpha Heroes

Oh the Alpha Hero. I do love them. I can’t help it. All that domineering and controlling behavior. Oh wait, maybe not too much of that! My type of Alpha hero is strong, worthy, domineering and controlling in some sense, but not always.

The best Alpha is the one that knows he can give up control because he’s established trust. Now I’m not talking about in the bedroom, that would be a whole other blog post altogether. No, I’m talking about the fact that when they’re with their mate, in this case, when Logan is with Cailin, he might be strong, but he knows she’s strong too.
The idea that he will fight for his life and the lives of those he loves with his mate alongside him makes him Alpha in my book.

What about you? What makes your favorite heroes Alpha?


Death came in many forms, but in the end, the lack of breath, the lack of existence was all Caym craved.
Sometimes waiting was the only way to ensure the success of a well-laid plan. Sometimes death was the only way to give rebirth. The act itself would take a piece of him so far away, break it into so many pieces he'd never recover it. That didn't matter though.

No, only the blood and deaths of those who would soon fall mattered.
He fingered the line of text on the yellowed page of the book that lay in front of him and grinned. Yes, the Centrals had been on the right track, but they hadn’t had his vision. Hadn’t had his promise. They’d used this spell before, and now he knew how to make it his own.

It would come as a clash of Titans.
Caym would rejoice and win.
And, in his victory, Caym would be benevolent.
He would grant the mercy of death to the defeated.
He was a demon, after all.

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.
