Wolf Betrayed by Carrie Ann Ryan
Series: Talon Pack #4
Genres: Paranormal Romance
The Talon Pack continues with the daughter of a traitor, the man who can never be her lover, and another man she should never want…her enemy.
Charlotte Jamenson was born to the Pack that threatened the world, but grew up in the one that saved it. She’s spent her entire life repenting for lies and faults that were never hers to bear. When she falls for her best friend, Bram Devlin, she thinks she’s finally found forgiveness for the blood in her veins; only a mating bond never came.
Bram knows there’s something missing within his mating with Charlotte, but there’s nothing he can do about it. Their Pack is in danger, and it’s his duty to protect their Alpha—even if it means sacrificing his life. When he’s put in charge of protecting a new member of the Talon Pack, he realizes he and Charlotte may just have a chance at something more than heartache.
Shane Bruins sacrificed his life and his future to protect the Packs from the men he worked for. Now, thanks to circumstances beyond his control, he’s not quite who he was before, and his life is on the line yet again. Only this time, he isn’t alone, and the two wolves in his path might be the only things that can calm the beast inside.
The war isn’t coming, it’s here, and the Talon Pack will have to rely on three souls who know they aren’t what each other wants—but exactly what they need—to win.
A quick recap….
In the previous book, human Shane Bruins helped the heir to the Talon Pack, Ryder Brentwood and his mate Leah Helm then is captured by General Keith Montag. After suffering through the experiments conducted on him, Shane escapes and makes his way to the Talon pack. Near death, they discover that Montag tried to change Shane into a wolf.
I was thrilled to read Charlotte’s story. I felt for her when she was discovered as a little girl during the Redwood Pack series. She had been through so much and now as an adult feels lost due to her heritage. Add in the fact that she and Bram are so in love with one another but can’t mate because when they tried the mating bond never came. They are both so uncertain of where that leaves them. Charlotte and Bram both discover that they are the only ones who can soothe Shane which leaves the three in even more confusion and trying to each find a place while the packs are preparing for war.
Bram was so great! He spent all his time hiding his strength but when it was needed he had no trouble showing it. While Shane was so lost and uncertain yet knew that somehow Bram and Charlotte was his. His entire life has suddenly changed and I must say that he took it all in stride. The man that he held in high esteem has not only betrayed him but changed him and while his loyalties shift his inner strength never waivers. The three discover that even though they have been lost and looking for a place to belong that place was right in front of them.
As always Carrie Ann Ryan has given us characters to fall in love with and I can’t wait for the next book in the series. The little preview we got tells me that it will be explosive. Also I am curious as to the repercussions of the events with Montag. I am certain there will be plenty of things that he has done or planned that will come to light.
