**I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review**

  There comes a time when setting your differences aside isn't just necessary, it’s a means of survival. After losing over half of their dens to a group rogue shifters, the wolves and leopards merged as one Pack, but living together is much more of a challenge then they expected.

Danica Welsh was born to be the leopard pack healer. An accident involving a drug induced youth left her badly burned and scared—emotionally and physically. Without the ability to heal by touch, she secludes herself to the edge of town, away from Ashwood Falls’ overly concerned citizens. All hope of mating and family become a distant dream. When she finally starts to accepts the long, lonely existence ahead of her, a stranger crashes into her life, and her heart. 

After Nevan Mathews’ fiancé died three ago, he submerged himself into his work, cutting off all reminders of a life he dreamed of with the woman he loved. He lets his step-mother talk him into taking the first vacation in five years to visit for the holidays. But an accident delays his travel plans, sending him to Danica’s doorstep and raises a need he thought he would never feel again. 
Can they tear down the walls around their hearts and submit to the passion before another claims Dani for his own? 

Warning: Contains a shifter who's scars run deeper than skin, a human who has the heart of a shifter, and a snow storm that's sure to have them both reaching for warmth.

Winter Eve is a great introduction to the series. It gives us a bit of background about the pack and also a love story between a leopard shifter and a human. Dani lives on the outskirts of where the pack resides in Ashwood Falls. She was tired of all of the pity she received from everyone because of her scars, so she moved to live in peace and quiet. Though she was still close enough o the pack. While she is out for a run, she runs in front of car and causes the driver veer off road and crash. Luckily he's ok but now the storm is coming and he needs a place to stay. 
Nevan is on his way to visit his family but when he crashes his car,  his original plans are put on hold. But it turns out he's quite ok with that since he can spend some time with the sexy woman who owns the cabin. 

Very cool and sexy story! 

Title: A Tiger's Claim (Ashwood Falls #1)
Author: 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.

Great story! Lots of action, some hot shifter sex, and a little deceit, definitely makes for an enjoyable read! 
Shayna runs off to blow off some steam after she argues, once again, with her over protective father. She doesn't realize how far out she is until she feels danger lurking and she has no way of linking with her family. While she is fighting to free herself from the crazy half man/ half wolf mutants, Travis arrives to give a helping hand/ paw, lol. 
After the attack she starts to also realize that her family is over protective for good reason. The Onyx pack is looking for her, and she is still in danger every additional second she is away from her pack. 
Back at Travis's cabin as they are both healing, her first heat cycle kicks in, and  the sexy wolf who rescued her is more than happy to help her out. 
I absolutely love Alphas!! Vampire, Wolf, jaguar, or even bear, it doesn't matter, lol. There is just something so freaking sexy about them. And there are plenty of Alphas in the Ashwood Falls series. I'm so looking forward to reading the next one.
