Tour: Enforcer's Redemption by Carrie Ann Ryan (Guest Post/Giveaway)

Today I would like to give a warm welcome back to author Carrie Ann Ryan who is joining us this time around with her book, Enforcer's Redemption!


Villain vs. Hero: What Demon?

Sometimes it’s easy to find the villain in the story. He’s the bad guy with the gun right? What if you have a demon, but then you have another. But the second one is an inner demon who seems to take the story to a whole new direction.
That’s what happened to me with Enforcer’s Redemption.
Caym, the demon in the series, has always been the bad guy. Corbin, the rival werewolf, the other sadistic bad guy.
I had thought my hero would be Adam, the wolf who had lost everything and was in need of a happy ending.
But no.
It turned out that Adam’s inner demon—his pain, was my other bad guy.
Talk about changing a story.
Instead of a story where things blow up, people are killed, and love conquers all, it became a story of healing, and finding a way to work through the pain as it becomes all consuming. Oh yeah, and things blow up and people are killed…so that love conquers all.
Adam surprised me. He was the villain to me at some parts. He wasn’t the nice guy.
He was a butt.
Then he healed.
Or rather, Bay, his mate, healed him.
Thank God.
So yes, the villain is Caym. The villain is Corbin. But inner demons are just as prominent. I love reading about that. Who knew I’d write it too?


Enforcer’s Redemption
Adam Jamenson has suffered through the worst loss known to man. The only reason he lives day-to-day is to ensure the safety of his Pack. As the Enforcer of the Redwood Pack, it is his job to protect all in his path, though he was unable to protect the ones he held dear. The war with the Centrals is heating up and Adam must try and grit through it in order to survive. Though the broken man inside of him may not want to…
Bay Milton is a werewolf with a past. And a secret. She’s met the Redwood’s Enforcer only once, but it left a lasting effect. Now she needs to find him or everything he had thought he lost, may be lost again.
 Together, they must struggle and find a way to fight their pasts and present in order to protect their future. But the Centrals have a plan that might make their path one of loss and destruction.

Excerpt:

Now, his problem was sleeping in his bed. Thankfully, it wasn’t the same bed he’d shared with Anna. He’d gotten rid of that in a moment of desperation to get rid of the thoughts, memories, and scents that came with looking at something she’d touched and where they’d made love countless times.
“Adam? Get your head out of your ass and hand me the bottle.”
Adam slid it across the table, watching the contents slosh against the sides. Maddox gripped it, staring at it, but not drinking.
“I thought you wanted a drink,” Adam slurred.
“Not really, I just wanted to cut you off.”
A slow burn of rage crept over him, but the drunken haze made it too hard to care. “You’re an ass.”
“Pretty much.” Mad stood and walked to the kitchen.
“Hey, why aren’t you wobbling around? Didn’t you have as much to drink as I did?”
Mad came back empty-handed and frowned. “No, I had about half what you did. I’m buzzed, not shit-faced drunk like you.”
“Hey, that’s not nice.” His tongue felt heavy, and he could swear the room tilted to the left when he tried to blink.
Okay, maybe he had drunk a little too much.
“You think?” his wolf growled.
“Shut up.”
“Uh, who are you talking to?” Mad asked.
“My wolf, he’s an ass.”
Mad shook his head then winced. Ha! His little brother didn’t feel too good now, did he? “You’re crazy. But we already knew this.”
“No more crazy than you.”
“True.”

It must be exciting when you start on your book with ideas in your head, and then, they all get turned upside down. Does that lead to confusion, or does it open your mind to dozens of possibilities? Book sounds great. annpa@gmail.com
