Happy Easter to all who celebrate it! We here at LLL wish you a very restful weekend and lots of sexy chocolate moments, for those who are inclined…
Today we welcome Lia Davis, and are excited to have Lia with us. Lia is not only a wonderful author, but tireless promoter of others’ works and blogger on such great blogs as Heartthrob Haven. She has a sexy new shifter book, and I for one, can’t wait to hear more about it.
By the way, in answer to Lia’s question, I might be a bit of a nibbler…but you didn’t hear it from me!
No, I don’t mean that love bites you on the ass. Although some people might like for their lover to bite them on the ass.
Anyway, I’m not talking about the bitterness of break ups and soured relations. I’m here today to talk about love bites in the heat of passion, especially among the paranormal species. They like biting and being bit. There’s something about the mixture of pain and pleasure that drives them over the edge.
Well, vampires and many shapeshifters can’t help themselves. It’s in their nature. Vamps need to bite in order to feed, but they also find pleasure from it. It’s like their fangs are an additional sexual organ, taking and giving pleasure. Shapeshifters on the other hand bite out of possessiveness and mating. The mark left by the bite shows all who their mate belongs to. And they wear that mark with pride unless they are trying to run from fate and live in denial. Lol. I’ve met a few of those, both heroes and heroines.
Are you a biter? A Nibbler? Love to read a good paranormal knowing that there will be biting involved? Me too. Hee hee.
A Tiger’s Claim – Ashwood Falls, book 1
By Lia Davis
Publisher: Fated Desires Publishing
As the Alpha’s only daughter Shayna Andrews has always been treated like a rare gem, protected like royalty, and she’s suffocating. Her longing to be independent has driven her to sneak out one evening after dinner. After relishing in being able to run free without an escort, she finds herself face-to-face with the enemy, miles from home, and nearly loses her life until a lone wolf comes to her aid.
Travis Hunter’s main objective is to destroy the Onyx Pack—a group of drug using, murdering rogue shifters. His seek-and-destroy plans are put on hold when he rescues a female from a brutal attack. The beautifully exotic tiger shifter, Shayna, stirs a passion he thought died with his long-lost mate.
When Shay’s first heat cycle slams into her, Travis has no choice but to submit to her needs—and his own. But there is always a price to sleeping with the Pack princess. Not only will they have to face her Pack, Shay and Travis will have to deal with a mating that is beyond a single night and could have consequences more than either of them had thought. And when Travis finds out Shay wears the enemy’s brand, things will go from bad to worse.
Warning: One alpha female who doesn’t take no for an answer, a wolf with more on the line than just his heart, and a combustible attraction that’s sure to cause more than one sweaty night.

It took ten minutes too long to reach his small one-bedroom cabin. Once inside, he carried her straight to the bedroom, flung the comforter back, and laid the female on his bed. As soon as her leg touched the mattress, she groaned in pain. Frowning, he walked to his dresser, grabbed a pair of joggers, and put them on.
He went back to the bed and sat down next to her, jarring her hip. Another painful groan made him pause. He lifted her sweater to undo her jeans so he could look at the wound. When he touched the button, she flung opened her eyes, screamed, and swung her arms wildly.
He fought with her for a few seconds before he got hold of her arms and pinned them to the bed. “I’m not going to hurt you.”
Her eyes held a wild fear he hoped never to see in a female again. The claw marks etched into both her cheeks fueled his fury more. He breathed in then out slowly.
Calm down before you scare her more than she already is.
“My name is Travis Hunter. You’re safe.”
She blinked then looked around the room. “Where…am I?”
He growled low in his throat. The tremor in her voice cut through him. “My home.”
She tried to break from his hold, and he tightened his grip. “You’re safe. I killed the rogues.”
The woman stilled and searched his face, the wildness still heavy in her blue eyes. “You’re a wolf.”
He smiled and nodded. “And you’re a tiger.”
“A white tiger.”
To match her white-blond hair. “And a beautiful one.”
