RBP – Try to describe your book in one sentence.
Lia – After being separated by a spell fifteen years ago, childhood sweethearts cross paths while searching for a killer and find themselves thrust into an ancient war between witches and demons.
RBP – Tell me a little about yourself
Lia – I’m a newly published author who had the writing bug bite a little more than three years ago after discovering paranormal romance. I live in northeast Florida with my soul mate, two young adult children, and two kitties. I love family time, nature, reading, writing, coffee and chocolate.
RBP – Who are your cheerleaders?
Lia – My husband, who can’t wait for the BIG check to come in. LOL I love him. His confidence in me keeps me going.
My writing partner, Carrie Ann Ryan. I love our daily chats, encouragements, laughs and cries together.
Family and friends with their encouraging words.
RBP – Do you listen to music while writing?
Lia – Yes. Music has become a need. It helps me focus and drowns out everyone and everything around me.
RBP – What do you love about writing?
Lia – I love creating new worlds and meeting new characters. Writing is a stress reliever. I can come home after work, plug in the headphones and escape to another world and another place.
RBP – Why did you choose the genre you write in?
Lia – I started writing after getting hooked on reading paranormal romances. I love the suspense and danger paranormal offers. Throw in romance with a happily ever after, or happy for now, ending, I’m hooked. And I’ve heard, “write what you love to read.” I can’t remember where I read that, but it has stuck with me.
RBP – Where do you get your inspiration?
Lia – My inspiration comes from anywhere, anytime. My muse has ADD. Seriously. She’s all over the place sometimes and flies in with crazy “what if?” scenarios all the time. It can be from a movie, TV commercial, music, a word or phrase someone said, sitting in traffic, radio, and the list goes on. I have a very over active imagination and it has gotten more active since I started writing.
RBP – Which genres do you prefer to read?
Lia – Anything with action, suspense and tension. I need the edge of your seat feel while I read, or I lose interest.
RBP – Where can your fans find you ?

RBP – What are your thoughts on ebooks? (i.e. love them, hate them, wave of the future)
Lia – I love eBooks! My Kindle is easier to sneak in the suitcase when we go on family vacations. LOL.
RBP – How many more books can we expect in this series?
Lia – I have five books planed for The Divinities. I’m not sure if there will be more beyond that.
Thanks so much for having me over!
Kalissa Bradenton isn’t your average coffee shop owner. Born to an elite witch bloodline with a rare genetic mutation, she’s a Divinity on a mission. The death of her parents sends her away from her Maxville, Florida, home and into an ancient war between witches and demons. When childhood friend Ayden Daniels comes to her aid after an almost fatal accident, visions of a past she doesn’t remember sparks an old flame and new desires. With the past slowly becoming clearer, she eagerly sets her sights on mending Ayden’s heart and gaining his trust–until a ghost from her past returns to claim her as his demonic mate.
Ayden, the new Sheriff of Maxville and grandson of the oldest living Divinity, is investigating a series of Divinity killings. When he comes face-to-face with the one woman he hopes to have little to no contact with, old pain rises, quickly followed by anger and resentment. Through his rare power of adaptability, he learns actions from the past may not be what they seem. Hope fills his broken heart and determination pushes him to do whatever it takes to win Kalissa’s heart once more before he loses her forever.
Together they must find the strength to mend their tormented souls, while fighting an evil out to destroy the world.
Ayden Daniel had only been in Charlotte an hour before his cousin, Zach, called with a favor. No. Not quite a favor. A request that sounded more like a plea.
“You’re shittin’ me?”
“I’m afraid not. Charlotte PD said it was a hit and run.”
Right. “Please tell me she’s …”
“She’s alive. A bump on the head, but she’ll be okay.” Zach hesitated before continuing. “I know how you feel about her, but you’ll have to go get her.”
A muttered curse slipped from his lips at the same time his heart lodged in his throat. “Fine.” The word came out in an irritated huff. Ayden hung up and wished he had never answered the damn phone. No, that wasn’t completely true. He would never forgive himself if something happened to Kalissa that he could have prevented.
She was the one person he’d hoped to avoid as much as possible when he’d taken his place as Sheriff of Maxville. It wasn’t that he disliked her, that was the problem. Despite his better judgment and a glutton for punishment, he still cared too damn much for the woman.
The mere mention of her name made his pulse race with excitement. His body hardened at the thought of seeing her again after fifteen years. But his mind screamed to walk away. To let her be. Kalissa was trouble, and a hazard to his heart. She’d broken it once—torn it right out of his chest—at the age of seventeen.
A human friend had laughed at the mention of their young age and Ayden’s claim that she was the only one for him. A mistake on his part to confide in a human and expect him to understand magickin way of life. Magickin children developed at a faster rate. At the age of seventeen, he was as mature as most twenty-five-year-old humans and fully aware that he had met his eternal companion.
They were life partners—magical mates—destined to spend their extended lives together. To find one at such a young age was a gift.
A gift she stole from him.
Lia Davis is a mother to two young adults and two very special, equally different kitty cats. She’s a wife to her soul mate, who drives her crazy during editing/revisions. She and her family live in Northeast Florida battling hurricanes and very humid summers. But it’s her home and she loves it!
An accounting major, Lia has always been a dreamer with a very activity imagination. The wheels in her head never stop. She only recently got serious about publishing her work and loves it more than she imagined. Writing a stress reliever that allows her to go off in her corner of the house and enter into another world that she created, leaving the day job where it belongs.
Her favorite things are spending time with family, traveling, reading, writing, chocolate, coffee, nature and hanging out with her kitties.
