Imperfect Mate by Lia Davis: Interview & Giveaway

Imperfect Mate
(Harmony Springs Series, Bk #1)
By Lia Davis

For tiger-shifter, Samira Anderson, leaving home for the first time to attend Harmony University should unnerve her. She’s never submitted to the fear of a challenge and doesn’t plan to start now. Meeting her dorm mates and touring the campus excites her and her cat. Although when she meets Gavin Stone, she’s not only nervous around him but fears she might lose the tight control she has over her tiger.

After a bad break up with his high school sweetheart, Gavin has no intentions of repeating past mistakes. Or so he thought until he sees the beautiful, smart, Samira at the dorm welcome party. Drawn to her like no other, he can’t stay away or shake the feeling Sam isn’t telling him everything.

When he discovers her secrets, a whole new world opens to him, filled with danger, unknown possibilities, and a passion so intense it could last many lifetimes.

If any more people piled into the dorm, Sam was going to scream. The ground floor of the house was elbow to elbow. She couldn’t walk to the bathroom without feeling like the ball in a pinball machine. The human-shifter ratio was fifty to one.

Sam quickly learned humans were pretty clueless to their surroundings—at least this crowd of students were anyway.

“I hate crowds,” Jesse spoke softly beside her.

“Me, too.” And parties where underage humans drink and play the music too loud.

Camile had handed her and Jesse earplugs, but they only helped to muffle the noise. A headache had moved in, and Sam was ready to crawl out of her skin. Literally. Her tiger begged to go for a run, go find that stream she heard when she’d arrived that morning.

Suddenly, an odd awareness drew her attention to the entrance. Three guys stood in the doorway. One of them looked about as thrilled to be there as she felt. Poor guy. He stood by the door, his hands shoved in pockets as he scanned the room with a frown on his lips. Sam couldn’t get a read on his emotions from so far away, but she could tell he’d rather be doing something else. His friends probably dragged him away from his video game.

He had dark hair that barely covered his ears, but his bangs fell in his eyes in a sexy kind of way. His wire-rimmed glasses kept sliding down his nose. Scanning down to his broad shoulders under a deep purple button down, she grew more intrigued by the human. Something about him called to her.

Jesse’s cool fingers brushed her hand, drawing her attention away for the human to glance at her friend. The leopard lowered her eyes and withdrew her hand. Sam sighed and covered the female’s hand and gently squeezed. Submissives weren’t normally so timid, but Jesse was the poster girl for the word.

“What is it?”

“He’s cute.” She blushed and glanced to where the new guy stood.

Sam smiled. “Yes, he is, and very human.”

As if sensing her watching him, he lifted his lashes and stared right at her. Her pulse spiked while her tiger purred. When he started to advance toward them, Jesse tensed slightly, but Sam paid it no mind. She was too focused on the guy who held her captivated.

When he stopped at the table, she nearly groaned when his cedar-and-mint scent flowed around her, alluring and intoxicating. Damn, she wanted to bury her nose into his neck and bite—

“Hello, I’m Gavin.” He held out his hand.

“What? Oh.” Sam shook his hand and suppressed the urge to purr as some kind of electrical current passed through the connection. What the hell was that?

What is your favorite part of the story, Imperfect Mate?

I like the first time they meet. Samira is thrown off her calm-I-got-this outlook by her human mate.

How long did it take you to write Imperfect Mate?

It’s took me a little more than two weeks because it’s novella at over 18,000 words.

If you were stranded on a desert island which of your characters do you want by your side?

Markus from Sons of War. He’s a dragon-shifter and would totally fly me home when I was ready. Lol

If you could be best friends with one of your characters, who would it be?

That’s hard. I’d like to be best friends with Shayna and Cam from Ashwood Falls.

What is your favorite book that you wrote?

I say each one is my favorite. Right now it’s my upcoming Christmas story, It’s A Vampire Christmas.

Who or what inspired you to be a writer?

Nothing really stands out as being my one inspiration for being a writer. It was more of a leap. After discovering the wonder worlds of paranormal romance I decided to try and write my own. I never thought I’d love it as much as I do.

What is your typical day like? 

I wake up between 5 to 5:30 AM, get coffee, browse Facebook, check emails, do a little promo, then I start writing. I try to stop working at 7:00 PM, but sometimes it doesn’t work out that way.
How do you overcome writer’s block?

I break out the pen and paper, or message one of my CPs. It usually helps me figure out what’s wrong r what needs to happen.

Can you share a little of your current work with us?

I’m actually writing a short BWW paranormal set in the Ashwood Falls world to fill up some down time I have. It will be a series about bear shifters titled Bears of Blackrock. My next Ashwood Falls novel, A Leopard’s Path, is my NaNoWriMo book.  
What book are you reading now?

I don’t have a lot of time for reading anymore, but I am reading a smutty short by Milly Taiden titled Don’t Drink and Hex. It’s a super sexy and fun read. I’m getting ready to go on a “real” vacation with Hubby and have my kindle loaded and ready.

What do you prefer paperback, hardcover, or ebooks?

I like paperback and ebooks. Ebooks are easier to hide from Hubby. Lol

Do you have anything specific that you want to say to your readers?

I just want to thank them for their support. I feel I can’t say that enough. I am truly blessed to be able to do something I’m passionate about and it is possible because of my amazing readers. Love you guys!
