Imperfect Mate
Harmony Springs, book 1
Decadent Publishing ROAR line
By Lia Davis
Blurb:
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.

Happy Book Birthday!

Available HERE
Yesterday my 1st romantic suspense with paranormal elements arrived on the virtual bookshelves. I’m both a little excited and nervous. I’m excited because it’s the beginning of a new series for me. And I finally get to share a story that’s been wavering in my head for over a decade. Plus, of course, I love sharing my stories with readers.
I’m a little nervous, too, though for a very different reason. I’ve had connected stories before, but they didn’t have to be read in order. Plus, the only things they had in common were the people and places. Wake Me is my 1st venture into a connected series where the stories need to be read in order in order to “get it” all. In the Hidden Destiny series, each book will have a character with a special ability and they will be interacting with others like them within the community introduced in Wake Me . There are some other connected details about the series, but I’m not telling!
I look forward to the challenges the new series will bring me and I’m excited to see what the characters and I can create. I hope you enjoy Wake Me and I hope you’ll be excited to read the rest of the series when they come out!

Blurb:
Her psychic dreams come true.
Sarah McKinley’s attempts to take her foreknowledge of crimes to the Seattle Police Department marked her as a troublemaker and were never taken seriously. Starting over in Austin, she plans never to reveal her gift, but shortly after she arrives, the dreams begin again, and the local police want to know why she has knowledge only the killer could possess.
Detective Jesse Cordell watched his mother con people with her “psychic ability” all through his childhood. He hones in on Sarah, who has means, motive, and opportunity to have murdered the victim in his current investigation. Instinct tells him she didn’t commit the crime, but she definitely knows more than she’s letting on.
Can he put aside his doubts and join forces with her, against everything he believes in, to find the real killer? Or will he do his job and put her behind bars? After all, there’s no such thing as the “psychic ability.” Or is there?

Why Raygan? Why Now?

I happened to be talking to someone the other day about my Zero, Ohio series. The person wanted to know if there would be more stories forthcoming. I told her yes! She wanted to know who got the next story. Raygan, I replied.
Who?
Raygan is the bartender and now owner of Eight Ball. Want to find a date, go to the Eight Ball. Want to find the love of your life? He might be there, too.
So why write about him now? The reader wanted to know if Raygan signaled the end of the series.
Well…yes and no. Raygan could signal the end of the series, but why? I like the guys of Zero and am not ready to let them go. But he could signal the end. He’s the owner of the bar and if he gets his happy ending, then there wouldn’t anyone left in Zero to pair up. Raygan even asks that question in the book.
Now to the title questions. Why Raygan and why now? Raygan needed his story told. The guy has been through a lot, even if his struggles haven’t been shown in the story so far. He needs to have someone who cares about him and to help buoy him. So why now? Because he was the logical next person. Sam, Mike, Cary…they’ve all gotten their heart’s desires. It’s Raygan’s turn.
Will there be more Zero stories? You bet! I’m debating a couple right now. Until then, here’s the latest in the series, Redeeming Raygan. Check it out.

Redeeming Raygan by Megan Slayer
Zero, Ohio Book 5
Zero, Ohio, where the temperatures might be below freezing but you can always melt the frost with smoking hot sex. 
Two rough endings can equal one hot beginning.
Raygan Mason is done with love. After plenty of failed relationships, he wants nothing of the emotion. He’s broken inside and believes he’s not worthy of redemption …until he meets a man named after a car. Then his structured, but closed off world gets turned upside down.
Jamie “Jeep” Grusin isn’t big on love, either. Fresh out of a marriage filled with cheating and lies, he’s not looking for another partner. The writer wants a fresh start and is told Zero will cure what ails him. He’s not convinced …until he ends up at Eight Ball bar.
Can two men who think they are totally wrong for each other find out that redemption and a new start is so right?

Available October 17th at Decadent Publishing and at Amazon

And here’s a little bit more about me!
When she's not writing the stories in her head, Megan Slayer can be found luxuriating in her hot tub with her two vampire Cabana boys, Luke and Jeremy. She has the tendency to run a tad too far with her muse, so she has to hide in the head of her alter ego, but the boys don't seem to mind.
When she’s not obsessing over her whip collection, she can be found picking up her kidlet from school. She enjoys writing in all genres, but writing about men in love suits her fancy best. The cabana boys are willing to serve, unless she needs them. She always need them. So be nice to Javier or he will bite--on command.
She also masquerades under the name Wendi Zwaduk and is published through many places including Decadent Publishing.
