Alpha Wolves

Why is it that I love Alpha wolves? Is it the way the take control? The way they growl? Their protective instincts? All of it?
For me…its everything. I love the way Alpha wolves are the leaders and try and get what they want to protect their Pack. Though, as most Alpha’s know, they don’t usually get what they want. They get what they need. Their overwhelming instincts to protect those they care about drive them. And sometimes it drives them to the brink of happiness.
Plus, since we’re here talking about it, Alpha wolves are dammed sexy. Am I right? I mean come on. The way they growl, swoon, strut, and prowl. Yummy.
Is that just me? Oh…well this is embarrassing LOL.
In A Night Way, you’ve already met this Alpha wolf, Kade, in An Alpha’s Path. He and Kade have already had their HEA. But this time we get to go back and see what happens after writing THE END. Because Kade and Mel have been busy in the war against the Centrals and helping their Pack. Plus, they have their baby boy, Finn. It’s time for them to just be Mel and Kade the couple, not the Heir to the throne.
Kade is just as Alpha here as he always was. All growly and swoon-worthy. What is your favorite part of Alpha wolves? Come on over and tell me!

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

Kade Jamenson closed his eyes and prayed for resolution. A piercing shriek startled him, making him jump to his feet.
Finn. His eleven-month-old son, who wouldn’t stop screaming, no matter what they did. The kid always needed something, either to be fed, changed, held, burped, played with, or just stared at. It seemed never ending. Even now that he was older, he still screamed or babbled constantly.
Dear God. How the hell did humans do this? Kade had more endurance than any human, witch, and most werewolves out there. Yet a tiny fifteen-pound baby with big blue eyes took every ounce of strength he possessed. Not to mention sleep time.
Kade groaned and rolled his neck before he walked into his son’s room. He and Melanie had painted the room in a soft green to match the Jameson eyes and added cream borders to break it up. Dark wood furniture filled the room along with cream linens covered with frog princes and bumblebees. Stuffed animals of every sort covered the tops of most pieces of furniture, gifts from his Pack and family, who cherished Finn like their own son. He took another step in and realized he hadn’t been the first one to answer his son’s call.

Everyone knows I'm not a vampire fan. I was never Team Ed. But I love, love the wolves. Hot blooded, commanding, and a little untameable, dangerous even.

Ok I'm back now. Was lost in my own imagination! Love your sexy Alpha, Carrie Ann. Congratulations on your new release.

Congrats on your novella release.

I've always been a werewolf fan. Add in just an alpha-male in general fan, and of course I'm a sucker for an alpha werewolf. The instinct to protect what's theirs, the strength to back it up, and the undying loyalty...yeah, what's not to love? -swoon-
