Fated in Winter (Talon Pack #11) by Carrie Ann Ryan ~ Book Review


It's release day for Carrie Ann Ryan, FATED IN WINTER is a book you're not going to want to miss!

Conner Jamenson knows two things:

One day he might turn rogue.

And he can never risk his mate.

Romy Temple knows what it means to be lonely.

She’s spent ninety-nine years in the Talon Pack, not part of the hierarchy, and not quite old enough to be elder.

She’s the wolf no one remembers.

With a rogue on the loose and the winter season approaching, two wolves who promised they would never fall find themselves on the brink of doing what could cost them the most.

Each other.

*Originally found in the Shifters & Mistletoe Anthology.


When I read MATED IN DARKNESS, which was Kaylee Jamenson's story I couldn't wait to read her twin brother Conner's story because in that one we learn that he found his mate at the same time his sister did but didn't get his story but now we have it and I am oh soooo glad we do because I absolutely love his mate Romy.

Romy Temple has been alone for a long time, all of her family and friends have been killed off by wars and sacrifice so for this 99 year old wolf that is usually a pack creature that craves contact being alone or at least holding herself apart from others for so long is risky. Especially now because something is causing lone wolves to go rogue and she is at risk and so is Conner. 

Conner and Romy have an instant connection but it's one that was greater than the two of them, and when I say that I mean the book to find out exactly how fated these two are!

If you enjoy Steamy paranormal romances, fated mate romances, or are looking for something that you can read in an afternoon that will open you up to a world of more goodness I would highly recommend this book to you. FATED IN WINTER is book 11 in the TALON PACK SERIES but it can be read as a standalone, if you want to begin the series at the beginning there are two starting points. Book 1 is the original Talon Pack and Book 10 starts the Next Generation so you can decide on where you would like to begin, or like I said just jump into this one and whet your whistle, you won't be disappointed.

Happy Reading!!!

  1. While I do want to read this, because I wanna know how fated these two are, I think I might start from book 10. Or not. Maybe I will just dive into this :) Great review, Nadine!!

    1. Thank you Natalie 😘 His sister's story was a great read, novel length, interspecies, and it gives a background on what's to come on the next books in the series. But you can definitely read this one on its own, whichever way you choose to read it I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. Happy Reading!!!
