Melanie is a twenty-five year old chemist who has spent all of her adult life slaving at school. With her PhD in hand, she's to start her dream job, but before she does, her friend persuades her to relax and try to live again. A blind date set up through her friends seems like the perfect solution. Melanie can take one night away from the lab and let her inner vixen out on a fixed blind date - a chance to get crazy with a perfect stranger. The gorgeous hunk she's to meet exceeds her wildest dreams – but he is more than what he appears and Melanie's analytical mind goes into overdrive.

Kade, a slightly older werewolf (at over one hundred years), needs a night way from the Pack. Too many responsibilities and one near miss with a potential mate made Kade hide in his work, the only peace he can find. His brother convinces him to meet the sexy woman for a one night of fun. What could it hurt? But when he finds this woman could be his mate, can he convince her to leave her orderly, sane world and be with him and his wolf-half, for life?

 My Romancing Thoughts:

A short but sexy shifter paranormal romance!

Melanie has spent most her days and nights studying for her PhD in nuclear chemistry and has missed out on having a social life. When her best friends sets her up on a blind date, Melanie reluctantly agrees, a girl has to have some fun, right? Nothing could prepare her for the sexy man she would encounter on her one night out. Kade, like Melanie, has traded love life for more important responsibilities. When this Alpha werewolf meets Melanie he instantly sees mate material. This one night of fun soon turns into something more when secrets are revealed and hearts are forever intertwined.

An Alpha's Path is a fast paced novella of two souls brought together by the ones they love. Melanie is not my ideal heroine (I like a more feisty personality), but she's funny, outspoken and smart. She was too indecisive for my tastes but I'd probably be a little hesitant too if a gorgeous guy told me he was a werewolf and I was his intended mate!

Kade, on the other hand is a dream. He's your typical Alpha male (in every sense of the word) and has a romantic side to him that melts your heart...he's a real keeper! The interaction between these two characters is fun and sexy. In just a short span of time you learn a lot about their personalities, enough to make you want the story to be a full novel. There are also some great supporting characters that add a bit more spark to the story. I'm anxious to find out what other hot Alpha's we'll meet in the pack as the series evolves (crossing my fingers for it to be Jasper!).

Carrie Ann Ryan goes in for the kill with her debut in paranormal romance and has definitely succeeded in her introduction of the Redwood Pack! The supernatural world and appealing characters are effortlessly brought to life by her talent to detail and imagery. Her sexy werewolves will have you all hot and bothered in no time!

My Rating


"Jasper clasped his hands together and spoke in a high pitched voice, “Oh but Kade, you must tell me more, tell me more. Like did he have a car?”

Despite his ill mood, Kade burst out laughing. “Dude, you are so not Sandy or a Pink Lady. And you need to watch more TV so you can get more recent pop culture references. Grease? Really?”
