Co-Writing and the Branded Packs Series
When Alexandra Ivy asked me if I wanted to write a series with her, I calmly nodded and smiled, saying “Sure, that sounds like a great plan.”
On the inside, however, I was screaming and shaking and going OMG OMG OMG it’s Alexandra Ivy.
It only took three hours for me to actually do the dance and scream.
In front of her.
That’s how amazing Alexandra Ivy is.
I am truly honored to write this series with her AND I got to make a great friend out of the project. What more do I need?
So what is the Branded Packs series?
It’s an ongoing paranormal series where the world shut down when a virus hit the humans. The shifters might have saved them, but were caged for fear of what the shifters are. Now, twenty-five years later, the shifters are able to fight back and Alexandra Ivy and I are making sure you get to see how.
We plotted the first two books in an afternoon sitting in my hotel room and laughing. We named the characters and the worlds and even had cute nicknames for the dark series. Because even in the darkness, we need light.
Book 1: Stolen (test subject) & Forgiven (you done me wrong)
Book 2:Abandoned (momma bear and the lazy cat) & Unseen (Ninja Mom Wolf and the Unseen Polar bear)
I hope you enjoy the series. We loved writing it! And there is MORE to come in 2016!

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?
About the Author
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.
