There comes a time when setting your differences aside isn’t just necessary, it’s a means of survival. After losing over half of their dens to a group rogue shifters, the wolves and leopards merged as one Pack, but living together is much more of a challenge then they expected.

Danica Welsh was born to be the leopard pack healer. An accident involving a drug induced youth left her badly burned and scared—emotionally and physically. Without the ability to heal by touch, she secludes herself to the edge of town, away from Ashwood Falls’ overly concerned citizens. All hope of mating and family become a distance dream. When she finally starts to accepts the long, lonely existence ahead of her, a stranger crashes into her life, and her heart.

After Nevan Mathews’ fiancée died three ago, he submerged himself into his work, cutting off all reminders of a life he dreamed of with the woman he loved. He lets his step-mother talk him into taking the first vacation in five years to visit for the holidays. But an accident delays his travel plans, sending him to Danica’s doorstep and raises a need he thought he would never feel again.

Can they tear down the walls around their hearts and submit to the passion before another claims Dani for his own?

Warning: Contains a shifter who's scars run deeper than skin, a human who has the heart of a shifter, and a snow storm that's sure to have them both reaching for warmth.

What are the greatest blocks or obstacles you have experienced on your writing journey? 

The battle between my analytical brain and my creative brain. LOL. I had to fine away to plot without too much detail and not freak out when my characters change direction mid-stream. Right I create chapter outlines and use them as a road map of what’s happening next. It seems to be working.

What else do you like to do, other than write books? What would be your perfect day? 

Read! I have to be doing something creative. I do all my own promo graphics and three of my own covers (Death’s Storm, Winter Eve, and A Tigers Claim). I also make beaded jewelry and book thongs.

But my prefect day would be on the beach enjoying the sun, wind and the sounds of the waves with my Kindle.

Your Work In Progress page is overflowing with lots of goodies...What’s next for Lia Davis? 

LOL. Yes I have 2013 mapped out already! A Tiger’s Claim (Ashwood Falls, book2) releases in the spring, The Dark Divine (The Divinities, book 3) releases in the summer, and I have fallen angels and dragon-shifters coming late in the year.

Author Bio

Lia Davis is a mother to two young adults and two very special kitties, a wife to her soul mate, a paranormal romance author, graphic designer, and co-owner to Fated Desires Publishing, LLC. She and her family live in Northeast Florida battling hurricanes and very humid summers. But it’s her home and she loves it!

An accounting major, Lia has always been a dreamer with a very activity imagination. The wheels in her head never stop. She ventured into the world of writing and publishing in 2008 and loves it more than she imagined. Writing and designing are stress relievers that allow her to go off in her corner of the house and enter into another world that she created, leaving real life where it belongs.

Her favorite things are spending time with family, traveling, reading, writing, chocolate, coffee, nature and hanging out with her kitties.

Lia has crafted an analogous world that includes many great characters (and lucky for us readers -- future stories)! In a genre flooded with an ever increasing number of formulated tales – it was refreshing to read this touching love story. The author put just the right amount of sentiment, sensuality and steamy sex into this prequel to ensure that the Ashwood Falls series will have a very promising future.
