A Mating Dance (Ashwood Falls #2) by Lia Davis Blog Tour Stop

A Mating Dance, Ashwood Falls #2
By Lia Davis

Tagline: She’d fought fate against one, but she’s no match for two.


Senior enforcer, Cameron Nickels has found her perfect mate. Blaine Andrews, leopard Pack Marshal, is strong, dominate, loyal, and passionate. He knows all her strengths and weaknesses—not to mention her pleasure points. Cam’s known Blaine most her life, but she’s always felt like something was missing and her jaguar refuses to fully accept him. Yet, she can’t walk away from him. When architect and sexy mountain lion shifter, Graham Griffin, comes to town to design the new den nursery and school, Cameron finds herself in a mating dance that throws her and her jaguar into flight mode while Blaine must decide if he cannot only share his mate, but welcome another.

After his lover walked out on him a year ago, Graham has no intentions of entering another relationship any time soon. But he realizes that the fates have other plans for him when he meets Blaine and Cameron. When his ex-lover’s children are chased into Ashwood territory by a group of rogues, he discovers the male he shared a life with had died freeing the kids from the Onyx Pack. Graham must work side-by-side with the two enforcers to uncover lies from the past while his heart opens to his true mates.

Warning: Contains one-hot headed leopard, a man who thought he’d lost it all, and a woman who is about to rub up against both in the best possible ways.


My Review

5 of 5 Mating Dance

HOLY HOT SHIFTERS!!!!!!!!!! Man oh man Lia has rocked the house with this book. I mean DAM I could not read fast enough because I love me some shifter stories but Lia has this way with writing that grabs you and keeps you there. Her descriptions of the characters and the places and lord the action had me at the edge of my seat wanting no needing more.

Cam has found her mate. He is perfect for her in every way. He is gorgeous, smart, loyal and passionate. So why then does she feel empty? She feels this emptiness that she can't explain and she knows she is ready to settle down and be with her mate Blaine who is an ALPHA male all the way but she needs something. Blaine is determined to give Cam anything she wants and he will wait for her to be ready because he loves her and he wants her.

So when the new Architect Graham comes to town to build a new nursery and school everyone is excited. The minute Cam sees him her mating call goes off and she realizes what she has been missing and longing for. Only problem is will Blaine accept another man into their relationship? Well there is something else to because Graham has sworn off dating because his lover left him over a year ago and he is still reeling from a heart break. Graham can't deny the attraction he feels towards Cam and Blaine but he is still guarded. But soon something happens that brings the three together and they will have to work together in order to save the pact as well as the children. Will they come together and fight along side each other or will Graham just leave with his broken heart? 

Other Ashwood Falls books:


Cameron sat at Dani and Nevan’s dining table with Max balanced on one knee as she helped him cut his waffle, dip it into the syrup, and bring it to his mouth. When he dropped the fork and stuck his hand in the syrup, she squeaked and grabbed his wrist. Graham came over with a wet cloth to clean him up. Max grunted his frustration then gripped Cam’s hair with his sticky fingers, tangling his fingers around the strands. “Oh, Max.” Cameron stood, only to come nose-to nose with Graham.

Her skin heated and her heart skipped a few beats. His blue eyes darkened slightly, then a flash of bright blue told her that his puma wasn’t far from the surface.

Graham gripped Max’s hand and tried to unwrap her hair from his sticky fingers. Cameron laughed, trying to ignore the heat blooming between them. “You’re making it worse.”

Graham drew his brows together, making him even more handsome. She let her gaze travel over the masculine lines of his face. His skin was tanned, as though he worked long hours in the sun. He had high cheekbones and an average size nose that was just right for him. When her gaze fell on his lips, she wondered what they would feel like against hers. His lips were slightly full, the bottom one begging for her to bite it. When his blue gaze met hers, a wash of desire rushed through her, heating her skin even more.

Good Lord, what the hell was wrong with her? She had a mate, or could have one if she’d get past her commitment issues. She damn sure didn’t need another.

The front door opened, drawing her attention to Blaine as he walked in and shut the door behind him. Cameron immediately met his glare with one of her own.

Damn possessive male.

She stepped away from Graham and went to the kitchen sink to wet her hair and untangle Max’s hands. A moment later Blaine was at her side, he pressed a kiss to her cheek and then took Max from her. Her heart lurched as the little guy started crying and kicking his feet.

Graham appeared and took the wailing child from Blaine, and Cameron swore she heard a growl come from one of them.

Drying the ends of her hair with a kitchen towel, Cam stepped between them, giving Blaine a narrow-eyed glare. “Are you done?”

His leopard flashed in his eyes, and he leaned in to growl, “Not with you.”

Interview With Lia:

Today on Kaidans Seduction we would like to welcome a very special guest Lia Davis. Lia thank you so much for coming down and spending some time with your readers. I have to say that I loved loved A Mating Dance and I need more. I mean it was so hot, sexy and so so swoon worthy I could not get enough! Girl you sure know how to write a story like no one’s business.

How did you become and author?

I started writing after discovering paranormal romance and decided to give it a try. At first it was just an outlet to get away from the reality of day job and quiet overactive imagination. 

What is your favorite genre to read?

Paranormal romance. I love the world building, the danger and suspense, and the whole idea of other species.

How many books have you written?

I just sent number 7 off to the editor last week.

Who is your favorite character and why?

I try not to play favoritism among my characters, but I do have to say the little Max (the three year old stepson of Graham from A Mating Dance) has stolen my heart.

Who is your inspiration?

Oh there are too many great authors that I read who each inspire me in their ways. But my root inspiration is my mom who’s love for reading passed on to me. 

If you could be a shape shifter what would you be and why?

A white tiger! They are beautiful and I’m a cat person at heart.

Are you currently working on anything?

Yes, I’m working on an Ashwood Falls novella, A Rebel’s Heart, that will be in the Fated Desires Publishing anthology coming out November 12, 2013.

I’m also working on a brand new series that involves Greek Gods and dragons. Following my website and blog for more information.
