Book Description:

Sometimes fate gets it all wrong.

Zoey Kent has lived with that fact ever since she turned eighteen and learned that the man she loved could never be hers. He’s a born shifter, a wolf, and she’s a mere human. Fate doesn’t care if on paper they’re a perfect pair. She isn’t his fated mate and she’s resigned herself to the knowledge that someday, she’ll have to watch Michael mate with another. It’s never crossed her mind that there might be someone else out there for her, that she would be the one to mate another, to choose another over everything she’s ever known or wanted.

Sometimes fate gets it all right.

Rafe Hudson left his pack behind years ago. Physically and mentally scarred from an attack that left his parents and twin dead, he walked away from his responsibilities as Alpha. He never intended to return but lone wolf or not, he can’t leave Michael open to an attack he’s learned is coming for his only brother. What he didn’t know was that going home would mean scenting his mate, the one person in the world that could make him whole again, that could give him everything he thought he’d lost. His pack, his home and his family.

But fate always has a plan.

There’s no way Michael’s brother is her future, is there? Just like there’s no way that the girl his brother has loved since they were kids, was always meant to be his, right?

Only fate knows why they were brought together but there is one thing for sure, the sparks between Zoey and Rafe are undeniable. The bond between them is unbreakable. And together… they’ll change the face of the pack forever.

Excerpt 2

Rafe Hudson was going to rip his little brother’s
intestines out and use them to choke him to death. It was a fantasy he’d been
living over and over in his head for the past few hours. It was a fantasy that
he would have fulfilled already if only
hadn’t stopped him.
Her. Zoey. His mate. He was still trying to wrap his
head around how that was even possible.
All of those years out there in the big, bad world.
All of his time spent roaming from city to town to countryside. He hadn’t been
out there looking for her but he was what he was. He was a shifter and it was
hard coded in him to seek the woman that was meant to make him whole. In the
back of his mind, every time he encountered a new woman, a new wolf or other
shifter, he’d wondered if she was the one.
He’d wondered if he would find her at his next stop
or the one after that. He’d wondered where she was and if she was looking for
him too. And, in his darkest moments, he’d wondered if fate had even seen fit
to give him a mate when he’d already failed to protect those that meant the
most to him once.
He’d failed his family, his entire pack. He had been
the one to run past the boundary line. He was the one the hunters had followed
back to camp. He was the reason they were all dead, every one of them.
His proud father, the leader of
them all. His mother, the sweetest wolf to have ever been born. And Gabe, his
littermate, his twin, his other half in every way. The only member of his
family that hadn’t been in the woods that day was Michael
and because fate liked to throw
punches when you were already down, Rafe knew that the reason his little
brother hadn’t been there was because he’d been with her.

To find out, after all of this time, that she was
his? That she’d been his all along? That she was his but that she’d been here
with his brother? Well, that was an
injustice he wouldn’t, and couldn’t, tolerate.

Interview with Jess Bryant
Where do you get inspiration for your stories?
Life, music, tv, dreams, stories my friends tell me. Ideas are everywhere if you do enough listening and enough people watching.
How did you do research for your book?
Unbreakable Bond is a shifter romance so for research I basically binge watched Teen Wolf. Ha-ha. I laugh, but it’s not really a joke. I did watch that entire tv show in a matter of weeks. It was fun and quirky but it really came down to family and friendships and that’s something I think all of my books have in common, that thread of friends being a pack, in this case it's just actually true.
Do you have another profession besides writing?
Yes, I work full time. Writing is a side hobby or a second job if you will. I mostly just call it my passion. I spend 9 hours a day crunching numbers and entering invoices in an office environment. When I go home I get to work with what I truly love, words and my imagination. Finding a balance isn’t always easy but a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do, ya know?
If you could go back in time, where would you go?
Oh, I love this question. I am a time travel geek. If we’re talking about using a machine to go back to any time in the past, I’d love to visit Ancient Greece. I took an entire class in college on the rise and fall of their empire and getting to see it firsthand would be amazing. If we’re talking about going back to one point in my life however, I’d go back to the day I met my ex-husband and stay in bed. Haha!
What is your next project?

Right now I am working on book two in my Fated Mates Duet. It will be Michael’s story and picks up right where Unbreakable Bond finishes off so readers don’t miss a beat. I’m excited to share both books with you all. It’s a genre departure from the contemporary small town romances I usually write and I hope my readers enjoy this little magical trip as much as I have.
