Review + Giveaway ~ Divided Loyalties (Ashwood Falls, #4) By Lia Davis


Trained to hunt rogues and protect the human race from the threat of shifters, Christa Baker is beginning to rethink her career choice. Especially when her niece and nephew—who she’s raised on her own—end up in the crossfire. Now she’s looking for a way out and disappear off Shield’s radar for good. She never thought her out would be a gorgeous wolf who kidnaps her after raiding Shield HQ.

Hayden Raines has always followed the rules. As the Ashwood Fall wolf Marshal, he has to set the example for those working under him. When he sets his sights on the beautiful human hunter things go downhill, fast. Fate has a funny way of turning things inside out—because the woman he kidnaps, the enemy he might need to protect his family from, just happens to be his mate.

Warning: Contains one woman on a path she’s not ready for, a man who thought things would be different, and a heated exchange that turns out to be the best thing ever.

Divided Loyalties by Lia Davis – Excerpt One    

     Christa had lived with two shifters for the last seven years. She’d been there when Brenna and Bryce shifted for the first time. She’d also helped them control their wolves, thanks to the information her sister had shared with her when she was alive. 
     “My sources tell me that the rise in shifter attacks points to a hybrid Pack of wolves and leopards called Ashwood Falls,” Vance said then tapped on the table to get her attention.
     She met his gaze and held it until he looked away, but not before she caught the flashing shift of color in his irises. Satisfied she wasn’t being paranoid about what he was, she asked, “How trustworthy is this source? Why haven’t we heard about attacks from our police contacts? It should be all over the Internet.”
     Vance set his jaw and turned away from them to study the map on the wall. “The shifters are very good at hiding these things from humans. You, of all people, should know that, Christa.”
     Fucking ass
     What she really wanted to say was, “Like you, asshole,” but she refrained and squashed her temper down before it got her in trouble. Again. “How sure are you?” she asked in a slightly softer tone.
     See? She could be calm and cool.
I absolutely love Lia Davis's book and this book didn't disappoint. I look forward to every time a new Ashwood Falls Series comes out. She has a way of writing that keeps you hooked from page one. This was Hayden and Christa' s Story. I loved Hayden, he was gruff and demanding but also loyal, protective, understanding and strong, definetely an Alpha male. The Ashwood Falls pack is on a mission to stop all the rogues and mutants.Christa was not a shifter but had been raising two since her sister's death. Even though she was human she was determined, strong-willed when protecting her niece and nephew. As soon as Hayden met Christa , he realized she was his mate. He just had to convince her.I loved this book and can't wait for the next one.

  16. The book sounds really good. That was a very intriguing excerpt.
    Can the series be read as stand alone books or do recommend them be read in order?

    1. Hi! I'd recommend read them in order. They can be read separately, but there is a continuing back story from one book to another.

  21. Ashwood Falls series is FANTASTIC! ! ! Danica has scars that keeps her away from people most of the time until a car accident that finds Nevan at her front door in "Winter Eve". Shayne, the Alpha beloved adoptive daughter, goes for a run and gets chased by the enemy. If is wasn't for Travis she would have lost her live in "A Tiger's Claim". Blaine and Cameron have been in "A Mating Dance" for sometime. Feeling that something is missing until Graham needs help. Keehan and Addyson have to work through heart aches to find each other in "Surrendering to the Alpha". And the new release of Travis how shows up at the Shield HQ and runs into Christa; Shield Hunter. They must learn to trust and faces the past and secrets held in "Divided Loyalties". Lia is a amazing writer and this series in my opinion is a MUST READ ! ! !

  29. I thought for sure that I had a couple of books from that series on Kindle but apparently I don't. Will definitely have to rectify that at some point.
