We have Travis Hunter and his daughter Josie here today, along with his mate Shay Andrews
Introduce yourself. What book are you from?
Shay: Hi. Thanks so much for having us over. I’m Shay and live in Ashwood Falls from the time I was two. I’m the adopted daughter of the leopard Alpha and have two very overprotective brothers.
Travis: I was raised in Hunter Ridge. It was a small den several miles outside of Ashwood Falls’ property. I became Alpha about fifty years ago and lost my Pack to the rogues about two years ago. I’m blessed to have Josie and now Shay in my life.
How did you come to your author’s attention?
Shay: I just kind of showed up one day out of the blue.
Travis: I was minding my own business when Lia told me she had a journey for me.
Did you give your author a hard time when she was writing your story?
Shay and Travis: *say together* No.
Shay: *laughs* Lia let us drive most of the story. Besides things just fell into place.
Josie, I know you were sick for a while. How are you feeling now?
Josie: I feel great. It was a little weird at first. I’m the only one in my class that can change into a wolf.
You all were just moving into your new house last we heard. How are things going? Are you unpacked yet?
Travis: Yes, we are all unpacked. Neither one of us had a lot of stuff. I gave the things from the safe to my mother. Shay and I are starting a new life together with stuff that is ours.
Shay: That was his idea. Although I did sneak in some things of Mara’s in. She was Josie’s mother and deserves to be remembered.
Josie, how did you decorate your room? Hello Kitty?
Josie: No, not really. My room is pink! I love Hello Kitty and Shay bought me a huge Hello Kitty pillow. It stays on my bed.
Travis, how are you adjusting to being back in a Pack?
Travis: I was raised in a Pack. So I’m happy to be a part of one again. And it’s great for Josie to grow up in one.
How are you adjusting to mated life?
Shay: It is an adjustment. The mating bond is so more intense than the bond I have with my dad and brothers. Travis is always with me even when we are working. But I wouldn’t trade it for anything.
*Travis wraps an arm around her shoulders and pulls her to him*
Josie are you happy about becoming a “big sister” soon?
Josie: *smiles wide* Yes! I have so much I need to teach her, or him. I can’t wait.
What do you think the baby will be? Boy or girl? Tiger or wolf? Magical?
Shay: Oh, I think we’re going to wait and be surprised about the sex of the baby. As far as if he or she will be a tiger or wolf, it is very possible he or she could be able to shift into both, but we’ll have to wait until he or she reaches puberty to find out for sure.
Travis: *running his fingers through Shay’s hair* We just want a healthy and happy baby.
What are your greatest fears?
Shay: Losing my family and the small sense of peacefulness we have now.
Travis: I live through too many nightmares to fear much. But I agree with Shay, losing everyone is always a fear when in the middle of a war.
What makes you happy?
Shay and Travis: *say together* family and the Pack.
Do you think you are safe from the rogues now?
Travis: *shakes his head* We will never be fully safe from those animals as long as they are alive.
Are you learning more spells, Shay? Is Robyn helping you with your magick?
Shay: Oh yes! I love Robyn and she is teaching me so much about how to weave spells and call on my nature magick.
What do you think will happen next in Ashwood Falls?
Shay: Well Blaine and Cameron are busy with their third right now. I don’t know much about how that is going. I do know the enforcers are getting ready for something pretty big.
Travis: *shakes his head* I can’t reveal anything right now.
Will we be seeing you in future books?
Shay: Oh yes. We’ll pop in from time to time.
Thank you so much for having us today.
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.”
