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.
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.
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
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.
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?
