Blog Tour, Review and Giveaway - Divided Loyalties (Ashwood Falls #4) by Lia Davis

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.


“My father went rogue.” It was the only admission he could think of that would catch her attention.

She peered over at him and frowned. “Did you kill him?”

He studied her features in the glow of the firelight. There was no judgment in her gaze, just a hint of compassion as if knowing that he’d put down his own father saddened her. He looked away from her to watch the flames dance. “No. My mother did.”

She placed her chilled hand on his arm. “I’m sorry. For both of you and your mother. Is that why she’s Alpha?”

Hayden nodded. “Knowing my father, he’d figured it’d be the perfect punishment for her. Leave her with the burdens of a broken Pack.”

He felt her wince beside him before she asked, “Was he abusive?”

Hayden sighed, and so didn’t want to talk about his father, but he’d opened his big mouth. It was too late to back out now without seeming like a total ass. “Not until he turned rogue, the illness we all fight within.”

“What illness?”

“The craving for blood and power. Not always in that order.”

“Blood? Like bloodlust?”

He met her gaze and held it for several moments before she looked away. “Shifters aren’t like vampires. We don’t need blood to survive, but we do like the hunt. Those of us who live in a healthy Pack have the support and love of our pack mates, so the risks are low. But the ones with an Alpha that has submitted to his or her animal too much run the risk of going rogue.” He paused to let her soak in what he’d told her.

“Are there exceptions?”

He shrugged and peered back into the flames. “There are always exceptions. My mother is one. Because she is the first female Alpha of a Pack, she had to submit to her wolf a little more. However, she is a maternal female at heart. Her soul’s focus, along with her wolf’s, is nurturing and protecting her Pack.”

She went to say something else, most likely to ask more questions, but stopped. Hayden was out of answers, for now. At least out of answers he could give her without jeopardizing the den. Christa still couldn’t be trusted, no matter how much his wolf wanted to claim her and make her submit to them.

He stood and stretched. It had been a long fucking day. No doubt it was going to be an even longer night with his mate so close while he ran patrol. “Get some sleep, Christa. We’ll talk more in the morning. You have a choice to make. I hope it’s the right one.”

He turned sharply on his heels and walked out of the house, away from the female that put his wolf on edge.

My Mini Review:
I have been reading this series and it does keep getting better and more interesting.  It has really captured my attention and I am addicted to it.  Christa is a fantastic addition as she is a fighter and very loyal to her family, who also happens to be shifters.  Hayden is very much like Christa as he is also loyal to his pack and a fighter.  These two make a great couple and this story was very interesting as Christa has to prove herself and Hayden has to decide if he is willing to risk his pack to claim his mate.  This book has action, adventure and of course, sexy scenes.  I do highly recommend that Ashwood Falls be read in order so you can fully enjoy this series and all the fantastic characters involved. ~Booklover Sue
