Today it’s my pleasure to introduce you to Lia Davis. She’s visiting to celebrate her newest release, Death’s Storm. The following is an interview which gives you an insight to the two main characters, Khloe and Jagger.
I stepped out of my car and breathed in the crisp autumn air. The mountains were so beautiful this time of year. I looked around at the multi-colored landscape and sighed. I have got to talk the hubby into moving up here. Shivering at the sudden cool breeze, I move to the front porch of the Bradenton cabin. Before I could knock, Khloe opened the door and greeted me with a smile.
Khloe: Oh good you made it. Did you find the place all right?
Me: *nodding* Yes, plus Willow met me about a quarter mile before I reached the driveway.
Khloe: *laughing, she stepped aside and ushered me inside* Yeah, she’s good that way. Have a seat. Jagger will be here in a few.
*I sat on the sofa while Khloe walked around the kitchen island that separated the two rooms*
Me: Where is he?
Khloe: He and Lex had to see Hecate about new developments in the war.
Me: *I frowned* There are more? Is it something I already know?
Khloe: *She walked back into the living room with a tray holding two teacups and a jar of honey* No, you don’t know yet. Hell, I don’t even know what the demon brothers are up to. I’ll get it out of Jagger later. *she winked and I laughed*
*The French doors at the back of the living room opened and Jagger entered. His gaze met mine and he nodded before he enveloped Khloe in a tight hug and kissed her neck, then her lips.*
Jagger: I hope you weren’t waiting long.
Me: No. I just got here. So how is that brother of yours?
Jagger: Lex will always be Lex.
Khloe: *snorted* Yes, freakishly quiet, yet deadly. I’m glad he’s on our team. However, I did see a tiny twitch of his lips that looked a little like a smile trying to break free the other day when Cassia was over at the house.
Jagger: *threw his head back in a laugh* I saw that, too. But that little girl has a way to get into your heart.
Me: *I nodded in agreement* Yes, she does.
*I cleared my throat and prepared to ask my first question. One that had been bugging me for a while*
Khloe, are you up to talk about the…life altering…?
*I stole a quick glance at Jagger, who just shook his head as he led Khloe to the armchair across from me. He sat and pulled her into his lap*
Me: Are you still mad? Are you dealing with it okay?
Khloe: No, I’m not mad. I’m adjusting.
Me: *Okay, she really wasn’t in the mood to talk about it. So I changed the subject* Jagger, how do you like living in the human realm?
Jagger: *shrugs* It’s okay.
Khloe: He’s too demon. The strong minded and sensitive humans know he isn’t like them. So he doesn’t get out much.
Jagger: Unless I’m chasing Khan’s low-lives.
Me: Can you two share any future plans?
Jagger and Khloe: *speaks at the same time* Not without giving something away.
Me: You can’t blame me for trying. Thanks so much for the interview.
Khloe: *stands to follow me to the door* Anytime. It was fun. Drive safe. *she wrapped me into a hug bye*
Me: I will, thanks.

Title: Death’s Storm, The Divinities, book 2
Author: Lia Davis
Technical genius and demi-goddess–aka Divinity–Khloe Bradenton relies on no one for help, and she definitely doesn’t need comfort from anyone other than her twin. After her parents died by the demons’ hands over two years ago, she has graciously stepped up to her place in the war between demons and witches. When a creature far more dangerous than the ones responsible for killing her parents claims he is her guardian, she is torn between her desires for the dark predator and the painful loss she has endured at the hands of her enemies.
One of the last death demons still in existence, Jagger has pledged his life to the Goddess Hecate. Charged with the guardianship over the Divinities, he is never to approach them, but to aid them from a distance. When the firestorm, Khloe, sacrifices herself to save her twin and best friend and becomes the prey, he has no choice but to reveal himself to her. He is taken by surprise when the need to claim her as his own emerges. A desire he has never felt before could be more dangerous than the demons out to destroy them.
Stepping off the curb to head to the car, Khloe stilled and let the warm air caress her skin. An electrical charge that only the select few magickin—like her and the other Divinities—could detect was palpable in the humid summer air.
Her spine tingled as the supernatural energy drifted on the wind, putting her on full alert. Reaching out with her senses, she relaxed. A little. The energy was familiar in an odd kind of way. Her admirer was nearby.
More like a stalker, really, without the creepy love letters and phone calls.
For the last month, someone had watched her and followed her every move. When the entity was near, a warm shiver rolled over her skin like a caress. The energy didn’t come from a human. Demon? Maybe. But, the power was too intense to be any demonic creature she’d come in contact with. She considered one of the gods, but that didn’t make sense either. The gods wouldn’t stalk her. They would send a messenger or deliver their message in person. She and the others had also thought it could be a guardian.
Whatever the entity was, it annoyed the hell out of her to be followed around and spied upon.
She scanned to mall parking lot and the sidewalk that lead to the various shops. Nothing remotely threatening came into view or reached out to her supernatural senses. Then again, she never saw anything when she sensed the presence. It had shown up last month, right after she and Kalissa had been thrust into an ancient war between witches and demons.
That was when she and Kalissa found a note from their mother telling them about the Sinew—a crystal sphere that held the magic of the worlds—and sent Kalissa on a mission to retrieve it. As Divinities, it was their duty to protect magickin from Khan, the new Bastard Lord of the Underworld.
