Liza O'Connor interviews the book Surrendering to the Alpha by Lia Davis

Today, we are interviewing 

Surrendering to the Alpha

An Ashwood Falls Novel 
by Lia Davis.

Peep Rep: Why is Lia writing about surrendering to the Alpha? Isn't it normal, nay mandatory?

Liza: I don't think there's much normality in this book. You'll see what I mean. Here's the delivery cat now.
Delivery Cat: Harm this book in anyway, and I'll rip your throat out.

Liza: *gulp* Thanks for the warning. No books have ever been harmed on my site.

Peep Rep: What about the time you threatened to leave a book in the care of a puppy?

Liza: Peep Rep, for the love of God, shut up!
Honestly, Delivery Cat, no harm will come to the book.

D.C. All right then. Just be warned, I'll check it over when the interview is over.

Liza: Not a problem. Bye now...*wipes brow as D.C. stalks off* That got the heart to hopping.

Peep Rep: The book looks much friendlier than the delivery cat.

Liza: Surrendering to the Alpha, so nice to have you here. Are you comfy? Need anything?  May I call you Sur? I'm terrible at typing long names, especially when my fingers are trembling.

Book: Since your are inept I will allow the shortening of my name for this interview. However, when in public, you will refer to me with my proper name.

Liza: Thanks. Would you be so kind as to tell us about the alpha.

Peep Rep: Smart move, letting the alpha go first.

Sur: Ashwood Falls’ leopard Alpha, Keegan Andrews holds onto the pain of his deceased mate as his own personal hell—a reminder that not all things are what they seem.

Liza: Sounds like there's a mystery in his former mate's death. What about the woman on the cover?

Sur: The Pack Scribe, Addyson Lewis has intrigued the alpha like no other since the day she stumbled into Ashwood territory about twenty-five years ago.

Liza: How so?

Sur: He discovers that just being near her calms the storm inside him.

Liza: I can see why he'd want her near him.

Sur: He can’t stay away even if it means exposing her to the evil she tried to escape.

Liza: That's not good. Tell me more about the evil following her about.

Sur: The rogue Onyx Pack has psychologically tortured Addyson for over a hundred years, leaving her with no memories of her life before captivity and with the inability to control her psychometric nature. 

Liza: What does that mean exactly?

Sur: Anything or anyone she touches sends her into their darkest past and secrets, causing her pain she wouldn’t wish on anyone. 

Liza: Yikes!  I'd become a hermit.

Sur: Without the ability to control it, she’s forced to deny her leopard the connection she craves from the Pack that welcomed her with love and without judgment. That is, until the day Keegan involuntarily touches her bare skin and she finds the peace she’d craved for far too long.

Liza: Well, that explains why she surrenders to him. This book sounds really good. May I peek beneath your covers and read a bit.

Sur: Of course. But be warned. Beneath the cover lies one sexy alpha leopard who craves the most decadent of dreams, a hidden treasure contained within a spunky woman, and the ability to create a mating bond that’s the most explosive yet.


He stepped closer and studied her as she turned back to the omelet. Keegan ground his molars, took a deep breath, and calmly asked, “Do you like it here?”

She peered back at him, her eyebrows bunched together before she smoothed out her features in that practiced control she used around others. “It’s not home, but it’s nice. I don’t need much, Keegan.”

He took another step toward her. She turned the stove off and handed Will his plate. The boy stood, watching Keegan as if he would harm Addyson. It made Keegan proud of the kid that he’d want to protect Addyson.

Without looking at the teen, Keegan said, “Will, take your breakfast in the living room and eat before it gets cold.”

From the corner of his eye, Keegan saw Will peer at Addyson. When she gave him a nod, he left them alone. Keegan took another step forward, stopping inches from her. He heard her heart beat speed up and smelled her strawberry scent intensify, but not in fear. She was turned on by his presence.

He inhaled deeply, taking in her scent. His leopard rubbed up against his chest, trying to feel Addyson. He’d never imagine in the past thirty-seven years that he’d find another mate. Then Addyson stumbled into his life about twelve years after losing Cate. He wasn’t ready then, the pain still too raw to see what the leopard tried to make him see.

He’d finally started to accept it, accept the fact that Addyson has a place in his heart and in his bed.

Peep Rep: I want to read this book.

Liza: Me too, Peep Rep. Sur, is there anything else you'd like to tell us.

Peep Rep: I found the buy link.

Peep Rep: And additional links for Lia's prior books in this series.
