Interview with Shayna and Josie from Tigar's Claim with Lia Davis

Interview with Shayna and Josie from A Tiger’s Claim

Lia: Hi, Julie! Thanks so much for having us over. I brought Shay and Josie with me today for a short interview. We’re here to share a little bit about Ashwood Falls and A Tiger’s Claim.
Hi Shay! How are you?
Shay: Hi! I’m great and been busy, but Josie has been a great help.
Lia: That’s great. *peers at Josie, who smiles shyly while holding her Hello Kitty doll* Hello, Josie. I see you like Hello Kitty.
Josie: *shakes her head up and down* I like cats. *a frown formed* Daddy says it’s a defect.
Shay: *rolls her eyes* Well it must run in the family, because your daddy likes me.
Josie: *giggles* Yes, daddy likes kitties too.
Lia: He sure does. Shay, how much has your life changed? Does your father and brothers still hover over you?
Shay: *Rolls her eyes* Yes. I’m afraid that will never change. Now I have an overprotective mate to add to the mix. And all of them are worst than ever now that I’m pregnant. But I would change anything about it. I’ve been welcomed into the fold with the den mothers since I’m the mentor liaison for the adolescences. That keeps me pretty busy. And I get to spread time with Josie. Since she can shift, she needs a mentor to help her control that little wolf of hers.
Lia: Oh, yes. How is everything going with her transition?
Josie: Luna mentors me! She’s really fun. She teaches me to growl at the boys.
Shay: *laughs* I was surprise the wolf Alpha is teaching her. Of course Travis does what he can like all the parents in Ashwood, but children don’t always like to listen to their parents.
Lia: Yep. I can attest to that. So how is that wolf of yours?
Shay: *grins wide* He’s wonderful. He’s the Pack Tracker and works closely with the Alpha and the Marshals. He loves it.
Lia: That’s great. Well I do think we are out of time for today. Thanks so much for coming with me.
Shay: You’re welcome. And thank you. It was nice to have a little break.

Blurb
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.

Excerpt:
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.
Damn it.
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.”
