BLOG TOUR ~ LOVING THE OMEGA
A Redwood Pack Novel, Book 7.5
Release Date: July 15, 2014
Today you join us on the Blog Tour for the release of LOVING THE OMEGA by Carrie Ann Ryan.
We are delighted that Carie Ann has taken the time to tell us a little about her favourite hero or heroine!!! 😉
GUEST POST ~ CARRIE ANN RYAN
Are authors supposed to pick favorites? I don’t think so, but who knows, right? I always say my favorite hero or heroine is the one I’m currently writing, and honestly, that’s true. However, I also have another favorite that I can’t let go. Maddox dug his claws into me when I was first plotting The Redwood Pack all those years ago and I haven’t been able to stop loving him.
He’s the tortured hero, the scarred one, the twin that sees too much. His mate was the one he could never have, could never truly see.
See? He’s swoon worthy.
Maddox is the Omega of the Pack, meaning he feels every emotion of the Redwood Pack. Anything too happy, too sad, too angry, and it becomes almost unbearable. He and Ellie had their HEA in the novel, Shattered Emotions, and it’s one of my favorite books to date because I got to dive deep into their pasts.
Now I got to see them again in the novella, Loving the Omega. I wanted to catch up with the couple and see how they were doing after the war ended and how their HEA was looking up. I’m so glad I got the chance because they surprised me. Again. 😀
Maddox Jamenson almost lost his mate before he knew she existed, but his life is now exactly how he’d dreamed it. The war with the Centrals is over, and his family is healing one day at a time. Ellie is reveling in the simple perfection that is her life and family now, but that doesn’t mean she can shed the self-doubts and concerns that come with being a new mother, mate, and Redwood.
When a disturbance in their quiet life threatens to ruin everything they’ve fought for, Maddox and Ellie will have to learn not only to rely on each other more than ever, but find within themselves the power to forgive.
Author’s Note: This is a novella set after book 7 to give you a taste of Maddox and Ellie. 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.
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.
Get in touch with Carrie Ann Ryan!
As the Omega, he had that bond with each and every packmember—except his twin. He could feel the highs and lows that came with living, and it was his job to keep the emotional health of the Redwood Pack in alignment.
Without the mating bond, however, he hadn’t been able to feel Ellie. That alone had made him feel adrift in an endless stream of pain and loss.
Now, though, he had everything.
Or at least he tried to believe he did.
“No, I don’t need to talk about it again,” Maddox finally answered. Ellie let out a breath then leaned into him, brushing her teeth at the same time as he did.
They’d discussed his dreams and what they meant over and over in the past month since the Redwoods had defeated Caym and the Centrals, but they couldn’t find a way to make them stop.
There was no Omega for the Omega.
Not even the mate who loved him with everything she had could be his Omega.
Maddox grinned despite the sour way they’d woken up and pulled Ellie into the bedroom at the sound of their daughter’s voice.
“We’re in here, Charlotte,” he called out, grateful he and Ellie had worn clothes to bed that evening.
Charlotte huffed and rolled her pretty brown eyes—so much like Ellie’s— as she walked into the bedroom. Seven years old and the little girl already had the attitude of a pre-teen.
Not that Maddox cared a bit.
This giveaway will be a Carrie Ann Ryan signed paperback and a $15 Amazon gift card

It’s release day for MARIE HARTE…… Book 3 in The Works series, ‘Wetwork’ is live!!!!!
“He might command her body, but she owns his heart.
Trevor Doran is trying to fit into civilian life now that he’s no longer working secret missions for the government. But his job as a financial investigator for a security firm doesn’t give him the thrill he needs. With his last love dead from a mission gone wrong, he doesn’t need that kind of life anymore. Does he?
His attention soon turns to the beautiful, shy Emma Clark—a friend of his sister’s who intrigues him. He’s getting a vibe from her that makes him want to know more. Is she as submissive as she seems? When Emma starts receiving unwanted attention from a secret admirer, he steps in to help. Then the case he’s investigating at work gets messy. Danger’s afoot, and it’ll take all his skill to keep Emma safe. And all her patience to get Trevor to open himself up to putting his heart at risk and loving again.”
MY REVIEW ~ Tracy
I love The Works series from Marie Harte and was delighted when I heard that the 3rd book was gonna focus on Trevor Doran.
We were introduced to the main man briefly through his sister Maggie’s story in book #2, ‘Working Out’ and in book #1, ‘Bodywork’ which featured Shelby & Shane!
The third book gave us the heat, passion and sexiness that we have come to expect from Marie when it comes to this series but this time there was also action, suspense and a healthy dose of kink!!!!
I really liked Trevor, he had a dominant personality but wasn’t a macho-man fool…. Emma was a little bit of a softie at times when it came to certain people but Trevor seemed to bring out another side of her!
We caught up with Shelby, Shane, Maggie & Mac…. and let’s not forget Mimi & Ron – as if we could overlook that zany pair!!!!
‘WETWORK’ was a quick, hot, fun read, my only grumble is that it was over too quick for me….. I could quite happily sit and read about this group of friends for ages!!!
A definite series to check out. If you like a sexy story with heat, loads of attraction, likeable characters and a story that keeps you entertained, ‘THE WORKS’ books should be on your TBR list!!!!!!
