Excerpt Tour: Abandoned and Unseen
The next in a new dark and gritty paranormal series. Abandoned and Unseen continues 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.
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?
But she always got flustered around him. And that was the cause of her attitude. She’d barely seen Cole in his human form since she was forced to take her family and move into the new compound. In fact, it seemed the only times she saw him were when he was lying about in that tree, not caring that her two boys were playing with his tail, and completely ignoring her instructions. Well, that wasn’t exactly accurate. The only times she’d spoken to him were when he was relaxing, but she’d seen him outside his tree area.
She’d caught glimpses of him around her new den. He was the Tracker for the cats, so he was always on patrol—his body on alert, though the damn man somehow made himself look relaxed, as if he hadn’t a care in the world. If she hadn’t seen the intensity in his eyes when he was watching out for a human guard patrol, she would have thought him the worst Tracker she’d ever seen. But she’d seen into those hazel depths and knew he cared about his Pack, his people.
And that bugged her to no end for some reason. Though it shouldn’t have because, hell, he was doing his duty to his Pack. But he just bugged her. It had nothing to do with his chestnut hair that was longer on the top but cut shorter on the sides. Nor did it have to do with his beard that she knew was long enough to touch his chest if he lowered his chin ever so slightly. She was not attracted to a freaking cat.

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.
