In his arms, she’ll learn the meaning of trust, honor, and courage. She will unlock an amazing gift that will free her from her past and open up a future full of magic, faeries and more things than she ever imagined possible.

Bitten Shame (Book 2)
Jill Prescott returned from self-imposed seclusion to help save her best friend Devan’s life. Throwing herself into Devan’s problems and bringing an evil organization to its knees might just be the distraction she needs to keep living without the only man she’s ever loved.
Her life changed forever when she was hired to spend a week with Doc Massey. On the day she became a vampire her youthful innocence ended, but Doc’s love rescued her from being consumed by the darkness. The shadow of that former life continues to loom over her, keeping her from realizing her own self-worth. Running from her past only brings her closer to a destiny that is inextricably connected to what she is trying to escape…
Every gift has both a reward and a price, because All of it fits…

Tell A Soul (A Bend-Bite-Shift Story - Previously published in the Cupid Painted Blind Anthology)
He’s the dependable one. The strong and steadfast one. Still, there’s one woman who has always turned his firm resolve on end. Langston is surprised beyond belief to find Kristana again, and this time without a husband. Has fate finally given them the chance to be together? Kristana can’t escape her intense attraction for the strange giant Langston, but the murmuring voices in her head are threatening to drive her mad. Can she find a way to trade one torment for another and thereby find true love?

Shifty Business (Book 3)
Gerry Hinton thought she had the perfect career as an operative for the Company. Her next assignment should have been another "mission accomplished", but hell was delivering hand baskets that day.
When a little girl gives a mysterious silver box to Gerry, her world self-destructs. Suddenly under constant mental attacks, the only person who can save her is her partner, Nicky--but nothing comes without a cost.
Secrets buried deep in the past begin to rise, threatening everything she holds dear.

By Blood and Benevolence (A NEW Bend-Bite-Shift Story)
Viktor has battled the darkness his entire vampire existence. His wife and the life they made together manage to keep him from the brink of despair, but it’s always near the surface.
A strange and dark encounter at a party unleashes his repressed past, overwhelming him with memories of his cruel maker and lost love. His sanity is challenged when a mysterious dhampir arrives on his doorstep with information that will cause him to question everything he thought he knew.
A short story that bridges the Bend-Bite-Shift Trilogy to the upcoming For Love of Fae Trilogy.

Guess what??? Olivia answered some questions for me, so here is my interview with her :)
1. Which was your favorite book in the series to write? (I loved them all, and I'm curious to see which was the most fun for you)
I think Bitten Shame was my favorite.  The chemistry between Jill and Doc is super hot and Jill’s character is fun.  The dynamic of her beautiful, peppy personality crossed with her dark side was fascinating to “watch” and to write.  

And do tell… what was your favorite?

2. Do you have a writing playlist?
I have several.  In the box set there is a bonus short called By Blood & Benevolence.  It’s playlist includes Holly Brook, Augustana, Everlast, Florence + The Machine.  Here is the Spotify playlist for that one:  By Blood & Benevolence

3. What book series have you loved to read?
You mean besides the Boston Witches?  ;-)   Well, since it’s prevalent in my mind, I’ve really enjoyed Charles Colyott’s Randall Lee Mysteries.  I just got an email that the third book will be out soon so now I’m chomping at the bit.  Haha!

4. Was it fun for you to write Contemporary Romance when you wrote All For Hope? (which I loved btw)
Yay!  I’m glad you loved it.  All for Hope is special because it was a story I originally wrote many years ago, just before I gave up writing for a while.  So getting to publish it with Hayson was like coming full circle to meet my dream of head-on.

5. What’s next for you?
Next is my new For Love of Fae Trilogy.  This series will pick up where the Bend-Bite-Shift Trilogy left off and will start with Roon and Belle’s love story in Sweet Magic Song.

Author Bio:When Olivia Hardin began having strange movie-like dreams in her teens, she had no choice but to begin putting them to paper. Before long the writing bug had her and she knew she wanted to be a published author. Several rejections plus a little bit of life later, and she was temporarily "cured" of the urge to write. That is until she met a group of talented and fabulous writers who gave her the direction and encouragement she needed to get lost in the words again.
Olivia's attended three different universities over the years and toyed with majors in Computer Technology, English, History and Geology. Thenl one day she heard the term road scholar and she knew that was what she wanted to be. Now she "studies" anything and everything just for the joy of learning. She's also an insatiable crafter who only completes about 1 out of 5 projects, a jogger who hates to run, and she's sometimes accused of being artistic.
A native Texas girl, Olivia lives in the beautiful Lone Star state (Texas) with her husband, Danny and their puppy, Bonnie.
