About the series:


This is a brilliant combination of paranormal murder, mystery and romance. As with all this author's books, there is a strong alpha hero and both leading ladies are feisty and strong in their own unique ways.

In this case the hero is a black dragon shifter called Cayden Reinhardt who is determined to protect his mate, or in this case mates! Nina Carter is very human but Cayden’s dragon recognises her as his mate. She, however has had a traumatic eighteen months, first with her parents being

One Epic Release Day.

The idea was intriguing, I really wanted to like this story, and I certainly wish all the authors the best of luck on their upcoming release day, but: Unfortunately, Dragon's Web just didn't work out for me. It read more like the outline for a book than an actual novel(la.) Due to the short length, the characters fell flat and I had a hard time believing their motivations and feelings. (Or
When one of my lovely Goodreads friends brought this series (Woodland Creek) to my attention, I was intrigued. 30 authors contributing 30 stories to make one series? Really? Initially I was skeptical, and still really am. How can this many authors, all with different ways of writing, manage to connect their stories in a way that makes sense? What will the connecting factors actually be, and will the world-building be cohesive and continuous throughout each story, or will something, somewhere get ...more

The time has come for dragon shifter, Cayden Reinhardt to claim his female but Nyna’s old lover returns and he may catch more with his magical web than he bargained for in this enthralling paranormal romance.

Kara inadvertently witnessed a murder and disappeared and Nyna is stuck in a web of lies and not sure who to trust and the reader can’t help but get caught in the web that this story weaves as Cayden, Nyna and Kara strive to find the truth and change their lives forever. The chemistry

So wonderful this author has taken me on another journey with none other than a dragon that can come heat my bed for the winter. Seriously though she has taken this dragon and personalized his quest that will include not one but two beautiful ladies. By the time you are finished with their story you are yet again reminded why dragons are a favorite and a love of many. Kara is one resourceful cat and she had to be, but having been gone longer than she wanted at all because it was not by choice, ...more

Oh what webs we weave...

Intriguing shifter menage! Through in murder and kidnapping and you'll keep turning the pages ;) And now a bit about the story...

Nyna's parents were murdered, her lover Kara abandons her, and a friendly writer, Cayden, moves in next door. Turns out Kara had been kidnapped and Cayden is her mate. But how do all of these puzzle pieces fit together? It'll only take an hour or so to find out ;)

Favorite passage: “I promise to be overprotective and demanding.”

I loved it!

I loved how the characters were set up.
The background story set me up for the rest. Ms. Davis is great at giving the big picture. The HEA is worth the wait.

This is a unique short story featuring Cayden, Kara, and Nyna. While we don't witness certain events, we are given enough information to fully understand what led to the current situation. Eighteen months ago Kara witnessed, while in her cat form, the murder of David and Crystal. As if witnessing two murders wasn't traumatic enough, the victims were Nyna's, her best friend/girlfriend's, parents. Heartbreaking on numerous levels, right? The murderer...Nyna's Uncle Henry, the only family she has ...more

This is my first time reading a book in the Woodland Creek series. But Lia Davis is a gifted author and this story is Fantastic. I love reading Lia Davis books and reading this one has made me want to read more books in the Woodland Creek Series. I received an ARC of "Dragon's Web" to read from the author in exchange for my honest opinion in a review.

i really thought this short story was a good one. Filled with secret plots and suspense. Everything you want in a quick short read, but with romance, magic, and shifters. Can we say awesome?... Awesome!!

This is the first book I have read by the author and I wasn't disappointed. This is a quick read but you'll get a full story out of it. So much happens in this short story and you won't want to put it down once you start reading it.

Nyna works at a book store and it's still trying to get over her parent's death along with her ex Kara taking off on her. She only has her Uncle now and even some days she doesn't want to be around him. She has always thought that Cayden was hot and when he comes to

https://www.goodreads.coThis one was good for the mystery, but I wasn't so into the romance part. I loved the concept of the scheming mob family killing off each other and making the other members of the family think someone else did it. So I loved the suspense and mystery settings. Let me explain better. Nina's family is kinda like a mob. Her parent's were both just murdered and her lover and best friend took off and went missing on the same day. She's a little broken, and she meets a dragon ...more

Now this was an INTENSE read from the very start & my first Lia Davis book, I jumped in feet first & sunk within the words. The first chapter had me enthralled, intrigued in what was going to happen next.

***I received this ARC from the author in return for my honest opinion. All opinions are my own and no compensation has been given.***

Dragons are such majestic creatures that bring out the imagination of everyone. I am enjoying these short stories from the Woodland Creek Series. In this story a black Dragon is intent on making Nyna his life partner, when suddenly her ex Kara shows back up. Kara has been held captive for over a year to keep the secret she knows from coming out.

Dragon's Web has a kitty cat shifter(Kara), a dragon shifter(Cayden), and a wizard(Nyna). The story is well-written and entertaining. It has PNR, romance, murder mystery, and suspense combined into a terrific story. Even though the murderer is revealed early in the book, finding out the motive and finding the evidence to prove it keeps the story interesting and kept me turning the pages.

I'm sure this isn't the first M/F/F shifter romance but it was the first for me. I find it refreshing that

WOW This book is MUCH different then what i normally read. But it wasn't bad at all. I actually wish there was another part that goes to this book.This book is actually a Novella. Its short, sweet, spicy, sexy, and has some suspense. It has it all in it. I read this book in one setting. This book goes pretty quickly and its a easy read. The author pulls you in from the beginning and KEEPS YOU THERE! Once you start there is no going back. Think about it as "Pringles in a book, Once you crack ...more

Dragon's Web
Woodland Creek

Dragon's Web by Lia Davis gets 4.5 stars!

Readers need to be warned that this novella has a MFF (Male/Female/Female) romance between consenting adults. This is no casual hookup for Cayden Rienhardt but a possible situation between two life partners. Black dragon shifter Cayden Rienhardt, human Nyna Carter and cat shifter Kara Mitchell share something more. Wouldn't you love to be caught up in this dragon's web?

Dragon's Web brings two shifts and their mutual love interest into a love triangle that has lifelong menage written all over it. The concept of the dragon's web of eternal love is interesting and the murder-mystery overlaying the story well considered. However, it felt rushed to me and it felt like I started the book already part way into the story, missing the beginning. It appears Willow Creek is a collaboration of authors so I'm not sure if I missed something prior to it, or if it was simply ...more

Dragon’s Web started right in the thick of the action. It took me a bit to get in the swing of the characters. Kara and Cayden both want Nyna. Kara and Cayden may also have an attraction. This could be a good or bad thing. Cayden must start to spin his web if he’s to have love. But someone doesn’t have Nyna’s best intentions in mind. Can Kara and Cayden work together to solve everything and protect Nyna? Can they find a way to make a relationship work? Dragon’s Web kept moving through all of the ...more

I received this book as an ACR for an honest review. Usually I don't read FFM books but I made an exception for this one and I am glad I did. Dragon shifter, house kitty shifter and a magic girl what more do you need to get a wonderful story? Well one really hot dragon and a sarcastic kitty. I recommend to all shifter lovers. Love this book looking forward to the next book in the series. Happy reading.

Loved this latest book from Lia Davis! It had an interesting storyline and really fun and engaging characters. It held my attention the whole time I was reading it. If you're looking for an entertaining story with a dragon shifter trying to catch his mates in his web while trying to stop the bad guy from harming anyone, then this is the book for you.

Dragons Web is a great new paranormal romance series. This book can be read as a standalone, but you'll want more. Being a novella, it's a quick read. The story line was great. I was able to get emotionally attached to the characters, and it was suspenseful.
It was written well and flowed easily. It was told by multiple narratives.
