What is it about Werewolves? by Carrie Ann Ryan

I'm please to welcome author Carrie Ann Ryan to the mix today. She's here talking about her wolves and giving away some swag, so leave her some love;)
            Those of you who have read any of my books know I love werewolves. I can’t help it. I love them all. I love Lycan, Weres, Shifters, Werewolves, and Real Wolves. All of them.
            I think my love of werewolves comes from their Pack ideals.
            Ha! You thought I was going to talk about their drool worthy bodies. Well…that’ll come later. Shhh…
            Where was I?
*shakes head and blinks*
Oh yeah. Packs. Werewolves, in my books anyway, are Pack creatures. Their first goal is to protect their mates, families, and Packs. Everything they do is to strength the Pack. But they don’t do it blindly. They work as a cohesive unit and yet can fight and let their animal nature go…wild.
It’s not like worker ants. If someone falls in the Pack or if they need a shoulder, their Pack is there.
In A Night Away, I bring you back to Mel and Kade. They already had their HEA in An Alpha’s Path, but I thought it was time to revisit them. Mel and Kade have been mated for a couple of years, have a son, and are settling into their positions into the Pack as Heirs. But it’s time they spend a night away just for themselves. They are both wolves this time around and so is their baby boy. Werewolves are fantastic creatures.
Oh, and werewolves are hot. I mean really, why would I write an ugly hero? Either inside or out, my men are drool worthy. What more do you need? LOL
What do you like about werewolves?

A Night Away
Book 3.5 in the Redwood Pack Series

Kade Jamenson has been mated to Melanie for almost two years. They’ve been through mating circles, battles, loss, misunderstandings, and finally, the birth of their son, Finn. The world is in turmoil around them as the Redwoods engage in war with the Centrals. But for Kade and Melanie, the turmoil is also happening at home. The responsibility of a restless baby and their Pack has taken a toll and they need a break.
Not from each other. But from their Pack. Just for a night.
Kade takes Mel away for a romantic getaway and leaves Uncle Maddox alone with baby Finn. The Omega of the Redwood Pack may be adept at emotions but the idea of a baby may be beyond his immense capabilities.
Author’s Note: This is a novella set between books 3 and 4 to give you a taste of Mel and Kade. It is best that you have already immersed yourselves in the Redwood Pack world, however even new readers will enjoy a glimpse of one of the Redwood’s favorite couples. 
A Night Away Excerpt
Mel looked into Kade’s green eyes and focused. She needed time with this man. Just the fact that she’d thought for a moment he’d leave her meant she did. And Kade cemented the fact that she was scared. Yes, she could admit that at least to herself. She was scared to death. She was floundering as a mother, as a mate, and a Pack leader. She needed a moment to escape. To sit back and remember why she loved doing all these things. To remember that she loved her mate and needed him more than the air she breathed.
She placed her palm on his face, his unshaved cheek scraping against her skin and she shivered at the thought of where else his five-o’-clock shadow could scrape her. His tanned skin looked like caramel against her pallor. She wanted to see where else they’d contrast when they lay naked in a sweaty pile.
She needed a break. If only for a night.
“Okay,” she finally whispered. “That sounds wonderful.”
Maddox released a sigh, and Kade smiled. “Good.”
“Where are we going?”
“It’s a surprise.” Kade gave a smoldering look and Mel melted into a puddle.
Thanks for stopping by, Carrie Ann and sharing your wolves with us;)
