Review: A Tiger's Claim by Lia Davis


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 he have to face her Pack, Shay and Travis will now have to deal with that fact that their mating is beyond a simple 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.

My Review:

My first foray into Lia Davis’ writing and I absolutely loved it. I enjoy a ton of shifter romances and this was a nice refreshing tale.

There is a lot of information in this story setting up the world but it wasn’t an info dump, it was all handled easily and beautifully. I enjoyed the character of Shayna Andrews, she was both strong and vulnerable. I enjoyed that she is an Alpha female to the core.  Travis Hunter is great mostly for his easy acceptance of Shayna and her needs. He’s Alpha to his bones but has no trouble submitting to Shayna when she needs it.

The back story and the introduced characters were all well fleshed out and I look forward to reading their stories in the future. The scenes between Travis and Shayna are off the charts. There is also this element of danger and suspense that upgraded this from a delicious paranormal romance to a delightfully highly recommended romance that creates a world I would love to get lost in.
