Abandoned and Unseen (Branded Packs #2) by Alexandra Ivy and Carrie Ann Ryan


Branded Packs Book 2


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?

My review:
Two fantastic stories in one book! I feel so lucky that these two fantastic authors got together to create this dark and frightening world where there is so much sadness yet love can grow and shine through.

Abandoned by Carrie Ann Ryan – This story is filled with surprises and hope.  I love that bear shifter Anya Tucker is tall. It’s tough being a single mom and change isn’t easy under the best of conditions. These aren’t the best of conditions. Having sexy jaguar tracker, Cole McDermott, close enough that the twins can give him a hard time is giving her fantasies of him giving her something hard in return. But when the twins are stolen Cole may be her only hope for finding them.

Unseen by Alexandra Ivy – The Unseen are shifters the SAU are unaware of. They don’t have collars or brands. They are living off the grid and trying to change the plight of the shifters. Wolf shifter Nicole Bradley is hunting down the SAU bastards that shot down her 5 year old son and that hunt takes her across the path of Unseen polar bear shifter Tucker Stone. At serious risk to life, limb and his heart Tucker goes against his nature to help Nicole hunt down the last. Secrets are uncovered and so is Nicole’s heart. Maybe Tucker can give her a reason to go on. That is if they live long enough.

If nothing else these stories will leave you with a feeling of hope. That these characters can go through so much and come out of it with hope for the future you can do no less.
