Carrie Ann has more than a few books in her library—more than fifty in fact! New to her worlds and unsure where to start? Or maybe you’ve read her before but want a certain trope or heat level for your evening read? Well, look down below for our guide on where to begin when you want to fall in love with Carrie Ann’s worlds.

Want to start the Montgomery Ink world?

The Montgomery Ink World spreads over a few series though each book is a stand alone. You can either start with the prequel to the Montgomery Ink series, Ink Inspired, or start with the first full length book, Delicate Ink.

If you’d rather start with a smaller trilogy in the world, go with either Love Restored, Gallagher Brothers Book 1, or Whiskey Secrets, Whiskey and Lies Book 1.

Think of the Montgomery World like a giant tree where the trunk consists of the main Montgomery consists (Montgomery Ink, Montgomery Ink: Colorado Springs etc…). The branches are my trilogies where they center around a family that marries into the Montgomery clan one way or another. The Gallagher Brothers series is about Jake’s brothers from Ink Enduring while the Whiskey and Lies series is about Tabby’s brothers from Ink Exposed.

Want to start reading the Packs?

In the mood for hot shifters saving the world? The Redwood Pack world so far has two series within it: The Redwood Pack and the Talon Pack.

The Talons occur thirty years after the Redwoods end so you do not have to read one before the other. A few of the now-grown Redwood children do end up mating into the Talons so it’s up to you which one you’d like to start–though the Talons are near and dear to my heart at the moment.

And for those of you looking at the Branded Packs series…that’s a completely separate series I wrote with Alexandra Ivy and is not connected to any of the other Packs.

 

Want to read Carrie Ann’s books by heat level?

Most of Carrie Ann’s books are spicy and high heat. Though a few are a little milder than the others.

Want a book that will make you reach for the tissues?

Carrie Ann sometimes needs a book that makes her cry because sometimes only weeping will do.

  • Try Ink Exposed where a recovering alcoholic gets his 1-year chip and a chance at falling in love. Getting a second chance doesn’t come often in life and Alex learns the hard way that sometimes you have to forgive yourself before you can ask for forgiveness from others.
  • Hidden Ink is about a breast cancer survivor who is finally ready to take a chance with the one man she loves–a man suffering through PTSD.
  • In Hope Restored, Murphy finds out that the treatments for the illness he fought off as a child has consequences and before he can fight for his life, he must fight for his future.
  • With Fighting Fate, the end of the war is near, but first, sacrifice must be made.

In the mood to relax?

Want to relax and just be instead of reading? Try the Alphas & Ink Coloring Book that features most of Carrie Ann’s series.

In the mood to visit characters for the second time?

Carrie Ann loves visiting old characters to see how they’re doing. She’s written a few novellas that go After the HEA so you can see key events that you might miss otherwise. These include books like: Blurred Expectations, Ink Ever After, Flame and Ink, and Forgiveness.

Want an Alpha Hero?

In the mood for a growly Alpha Hero? Carrie Ann knows how to deliver!

  • Meet Jake and Border in Ink Enduring. Two dominant women for one woman? Perfection mixed with angst.
  • Graham from Love Restored is not only a growly alpha, he’s a broken one in need of some relief.
  • How about a dragon shifter and a bear shifter? Talk about alpha! Tangled Innocence is the perfect menage with the best tagline: A dragon, a bear, and a virgin walk into a bar…no really.
