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. The Pack Scribe, Addyson Lewis is no exception. She’s intrigued him like no other since the day she stumbled into Ashwood territory about twenty-five years ago. When he discovers that just being near her calms the storm inside him, he can’t stay away even if it means exposing her to the evil she tried to escape. 

Over a hundred years of psychological torture at the hands of the rogue Onyx Pack has left Addyson with no memories of her life before captivity and with the inability to control her psychometric nature. Anything or anyone she touches sends her into their darkest past and secrets, causing her pain she wouldn’t wish on anyone. 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. 

Warning: Contains 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.

Hello! I’m happy to be here today to share a sexy excerpt from my latest release. Surrendering to the Alpha  book #3 in the Ashwood Falls Series. For those of you who are new the Ashwood Falls, it’s a unique world of shifters where a wolf Pack and a leopard Pack merged together as one. The series starts with the prequel, Winter Eve.

Although I write the stories so they can be read alone, there is a back story that continues from book to book. I do recommend starting with the prequel if you are like me and have to read series in order. 

Surrendering to the Alpha is the leopard Alpha’s story. It’s a story of healing, finding love, and trust. It also contains the first plot twist in the back story of the series. 

The following excerpt is the couple’s first intimate scene. Addyson is a Scribe. She is among the rare group of shifters born with a psychometric gift that allows her to see the history of an object. She can also pick up on a person’s past through skin-to-skin contact. Scribes can control their gift through the use of mental shields. However, Addyson was held captive by the rogue Pack, Onyx, for about 100 years. During that time she was forced to use her gift so much that her mental shields broke down and she lost the ability to create them and block the negative emotions. She can’t make skin contact with anyone besides another Scribe and Keegan without suffering pain. She quickly learns that the Alpha’s touch brings her a pleasure she hadn’t experienced in a very long time.

Warning: The following excerpt is explicit and not intended for readers under 18.

Addyson reached up and touched her fingertips to his lips. It was a bold move for her, a move that he didn’t want to discourage. In fact he wanted her to know she didn’t need his permission to touch him, pet him, anytime she wanted.
She studied him for several moments before asking, “Where’s Will?”
“Alec is keeping him entertained.” He inched his face closer to hers until their lips brushed together.  Her breath caught, but she didn’t pull away.
That was all the invitation he needed. He claimed her lips and was surprised she was ready for him, as if waiting for him to take charge. She opened her mouth, and he thrust his tongue inside, finding hers to dance with.
She threaded her fingers through his hair then fisted a handful to draw him closer.
She held a fire inside her that ignited the desire deep within him, the desire he’d thought had died until Addyson came into his life. He wanted her like he wanted no other.
He broke the kiss and rose over her. The violet in her eyes was so dark it made them almost black as she watched him cautiously. He kissed her nose then her chin and then her breastbone. She sucked in a breath, and he stilled.
She ran her fingers through his hair, letting her nails lightly scrap over his scrap. “I’m fine. It’s just…I’ve never…”
He pressed a kiss to her breast and said, “I’ll be gentle.” He moved his lips to her nipple and swiped his tongue over the tight bud.
“Keegan,” she said on a gasp.
He trailed his fingers down her belly to her sex and stopped to let her catch her breath. “Are you okay?” She nodded, but he wasn’t so sure. He could feel her anxiety and a hint of fear.
Slowly he dipped his fingers through her folds and groaned. “You’re so wet.”
She dug her nails into his bicep while he rubbed her clit in slow, circular movements.
“Too much?” he asked, not wanting to overload her senses.
“Yes, no. God, it feels good and a bit overwhelming.”
“Do you want me to stop?”
She held his gaze and said, “No, not yet.”
He bent down to capture her nipple between his teeth, causing her let out a cry of pleasure. He eased a finger inside her. She tensed for a moment then relaxed and started moving against him as he moved his finger in and out of her pussy.
God, she was so beautiful.
And all his.

I can not get enough of this series. I am so glad that there is more to follow. 
I love the world that Lia has created for me to explore. I love the characters and the way they all work together has a family. 
I was so happy to see Keegan get a story we have had stories from his kids and he deserved to have is told. Holding on to the hurt and blame that he lost is first mate had him destroyed that is until Addy pack Scribe enters the picture. Keegan's leopard has already claimed Addy now if the man just would he maybe able to move on from the hurt and find Happiness again. After years of believing he lost is own daughter that is a chance that he has not. Is it possible that the Onyx Pack  has had her all this time or is it a trap lying in wait to finally destroy the Ashwood Falls Pack for good.
