About ETERNAL MOURNING
In the seventh book of the Talon Pack series from NYT Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan, a Healer is forced to come to grips with the idea that he can’t save everyone…including the woman he loves.
Walker Brentwood vowed to the moon goddess that he’d protect his Pack and Heal with every last ounce of his power. He’s watched his siblings and cousin battle the worst circumstances to find love and is now afraid that the one woman who could be his might not have much time left. The rules of mating have changed, and Walker will do what he has to in order to protect the bonds that have eluded him for so long.
Aimee Reagan knows there’s something wrong with her. She’s known since the first time she found out shifters were real and magic existed. When the Talon Pack’s enemy sets his sights on her, her battle to survive becomes even harder.
Walker and Aimee must turn to each other when the powers around them change and the paths that had been laid before them are no longer clear. But when their passion threatens a curse far older than anyone dreamed, they’ll only have one chance to save something worth more than a mating bond. Their future.
“Walker,” she said slowly, her voice serious now, “you know that I’m sick, that I might not have a lot of time left.” She didn’t let the tears fall, she’d already had time to grieve what she might lose because of the unknown. “First, I truly hope that what you’re saying is because of me and not a way to Heal me.”
She hadn’t known she was worried about that until she’d said the words.
Walker’s eyes suddenly glowed gold, and she let out a gasp. “That is not the issue. I am not feeling pity for you. Fuck, nothing I’m feeling for you has anything to do with pity.”
She didn’t back down, even when he started to growl low in his chest. “Fine. I believe you, but I also had to ask.” She raised her chin, her breath holding steady. “I’ve been pitied enough in my life for how poor my family was or how, no matter how hard I tried to pay for college, I always ended up having to drop out for one circumstance or another. I’ve seen pity in even my friends’ eyes when they realized I would probably always be a waitress at a small diner rather than anything more. I saw their pity when I couldn’t even hold that job because I was sick. So I’m sorry if the first thing that came to mind was pity and not the fact that you could want me for me.”
He crushed his mouth to hers then, startling her into opening her lips and letting his tongue slide in. The kiss was rough, demanding, and sent heated shivers down her spine and all the way to her fingertips.
When he pulled away, leaving them both panting, she curled her fingers into the cotton of his shirt and tried to catch her breath.
“Pity has nothing to do with what I feel for you. Nothing. I don’t know if you’re my mate, not for sure, but I know there’s something here. If you are my mate, and I’m able to Heal you because of it? Then that’s a fucking perk, but it’s not the reason I want you. Yes, I want to save you. Yes, it’s in my blood to do so. But it’s not the only fucking thing. You’re in my dreams, Aimee. From the moment I first saw you. You haunt my sleep and my waking hours. You drive my wolf insane. I don’t know what happens next, but I do know that if you want to, I want to take a chance and see if you could be mine.” He swallowed hard. “And if I can be yours.”
