Abandoned and Unseen Synopsis: 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?

Exclusive Excerpt: 

Cole’s cat scraped at his chest, but he ignored it, knowing he needed to stay calm for Anya. He’d seen the panic in her gaze, and he did not want to be on the receiving end of her snap if she went bear on him. He hadn’t been involved in whatever the hell was going on, but he was the easiest target.
The cat wanted to hunt down anyone who dared hurt those cubs. It was such an intense reaction that he was slightly startled. He’d have fought for any of the shifters’ young, but this felt different. He didn’t want to think about why it was different, so he shoved those thoughts aside and looked down at his hand clutching Anya’s.
Big fucking mistake.
Her eyes widened, and he had to swallow hard. He shouldn’t have grabbed her hand, shouldn’t have touched her. Not when she was about ready to blow, and frankly, not ever. She hated him. Or perhaps hated everything he represented when it came to the changes in her life. Again, he pushed those thoughts from his mind, knowing he needed to focus. He was the Tracker for his Pack, and though she wasn’t truly Pack being Ursine and not Feline, she was still in his den. There was no way he’d let his duties fall by the wayside because he didn’t know how to take whatever feelings were going on in his mind right then.

Profile2 (1)

  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.

  Alexandra Ivy Bio: Alexandra Ivy graduated from Truman University with a degree in theatre before deciding she preferred to bring her characters to life on paper rather than stage. She started her career writing traditional regencies before moving into the world of paranormal with her USA Today, Wall Street Journal, and New York Times bestselling series The Guardians of Eternity. Now she writes a wide variety of genres that include paranormal, erotica, and romantic suspense.
