"Her Warriors Three Wishes" by Carrie Ann Ryan (Excerpt/Giveaway)

Thank you so much for having me here today! Below is a special excerpt from my upcoming release, Her Warriors’ Three Wishes! You can purchase the second book in the Dante’s Circle series on Monday!!
 Jamie Bennett cursed as a car sped by her through a puddle, splashing her with muddy water. The asshole obviously meant to compensate for a shortage of something. Dirty water and mud dripped from her hair and rain jacket, only adding to her already dreary, exhausted state.
Oh, yes, the mud accentuated her look, right?
With a growl, or at least what she thought was a growl but was more like a whimper, she pulled the muddy locks of hair from her face. Her chestnut hair now had lively gray and puke-brown streaks in it. Thankfully, she’d worn her raincoat since the weather patterns seemed to be stuck on rain. They’d been living in a gray world for months now, even though summer was just around the corner. 
With one last shake of her head to remove what mud she could, she walked into Dante’s Circle, her favorite bar and sanctuary. Dante’s wasn’t a normal bar. No, it was owned and operated by a dragon.
Yes, a real dragon.
Not that she and her friends had known that when they’d stumbled upon it a couple of years ago. One of them, Becca, had even gotten a job as a bartender there to pay for school. Before, it had been a way for her and her six friends to let go of the worries of the day and connect the way none of them could with others outside their circle.
Then the night of the storm had changed everything.
Jamie and her friends had been struck by lightning, and now they weren’t humans anymore. Not that they’d ever been truly as human as they’d thought, but Jamie didn’t quite understand the science of it all. Lily, the chemist of the group, knew all about that. 
Now Lily had turned into a brownie because she’d met Shade, and Jamie had turned into a…well, a nothing. She just hurt. 
A lot. 
She felt as though she was ready to change—her skin too tight, her body too active—yet nothing had happened.
Apparently, she needed to have sex with her true half.
The man—or angel—she thought just might fill that role wanted nothing to do with her.
Yay for her.
Jamie took another step into Dante’s, removed her jacket, and hung it up on one of the numerous pegs on the wall. She loved the feel of the bar, the way it felt like home with its hand-carved wood paneling and shelves. There was a pool table in the corner, but it didn’t add a sense of a pool hall to the bar. It just made it a place to have fun. Tables with mismatched chairs covered the room, making it feel warm to her. Pictures of the town and its inhabitants and paintings from local artists covered the walls. 
Dante’s Circle could have held every aspect of the history of the town, especially with a dragon–who was god knows how old–as the owner, if Dante had desired it.
No, he preferred it to be his own little corner of the world.
Perfect for Jamie and her friends.
“Jamie! What on earth happened to you?” Becca asked. She put down the tray she’d been holding on the bar and grabbed a handful of paper towels, running toward Jamie. Her curly red hair bounced on her shoulders. 
Jamie took the towels out of Becca’s hand before her friend could mother her. As she wiped her face, she rolled her eyes. 
“Some asshat with a small penis drove by too fast and splashed me.”
Becca’s eyes widened. “I assume you know the size of his penis because of his car, not from personal experience.”

Humans aren’t as alone as they choose to believe. Every human possesses a trait of supernatural that lays dormant within their genetic make-up. Centuries of diluting and breeding have allowed humans to think they are alone and untouched by magic. But what happens when something changes?
Ambrose Griffin is older than most, if not all, civilizations. As each year passes, he submerses himself into his training, only relaxing around his protégée and friend, Shade.  After losing his wife and children in the last Angelic Wars, he guards his heart and has no desire to share it with another.
Bookkeeper and romance novel enthusiast, Jamie Bennett dreams of being swept off her feet by a white knight. However, her life is no romance book. Since meeting Ambrose—a sexy, delicious angel—she’s been twisted inside out and doesn’t know why.  Things are happening that she can’t control and now her life is in danger. 
Balin Drake is stuck in hell, literally. His life of refusing to take souls, even though it’s part of his demon nature, has caught up with him. He’s dying and now must search for his true half, but even a mating may not save him. When he meets the two people who could fill that part, he’ll need to fight for something he hasn’t felt in over a century—hope.
Warning: Contains a rigid angel who needs a certain sexy woman to help him unwind, a book keeper who finds herself the creamy center of the best cookie ever, and a demon who has a certain taste for pressing them both against walls.
