Here is a Guest post from Olivia Hardin about the Characters in her Bend Bite Shift Trilogy. Hope you enjoy learning a little more about them 🙂 Don’t forget to also check out the giveaway and the rest of the blog tour for “Bitten Shame”!
Today I thought I’d introduce you to my characters – better start getting to know them soon because the way this gang chatters in my head constantly, I have a feeling their adventures may turn even more epic.
Witch Way Bends (Book 1 of the Bend-Bite-Shift Trilogy)
Devan – She’s hell-bent on ending to her father’s underground business of selling children. Must to her surprise, she’s about to discover a world she never imagined could have existed. It will take new and old friends to unlock her magical potential – and also the love of the very serious yet sexy Kent.
Kent – He’s the tough, stoic leader. His job is always to find the bad guys and to put them out of business. His crew is a reliable one and he knows they can get the job done, but what he doesn’t need is the beautifully naïve Devan to get in his way. Denying his attraction to her seems to be his only option… or is it?
“Tell A Soul” – Short Story in the Cupid Painted Blind Anthology:
Langston – Ah, Langston’s the one I affectionately call the gentle giant. He’s a huge guy, but has a way about him that’s unassuming, confident and strong. He’sKent’s best friend and the glue that keeps the entire team together and on track. Ever calm and collected, the only thing that can turn this powerful giant on his head is a long lost love.
Kristana – She’s a lost soul when she stumbles upon a job that puts her head to toe with one very discombobulated giant. Unexplainably connected and attracted to Langston, she can’t for the life of her she cannot discern why. But mysterious voices in her head are tearing her apart, and he may be the only one who can help her discover how to save herself.
Bitten Shame (Book 2 of the Bend-Bite-Shift Trilogy):
Jill – She’s a beautiful, spirited vampire and formerly Devan’s college roommate. When these BFFs get back together, Jill’s only goal is to save her friend from the powerful Org who are out to destroy her. If she’s lucky, she hopes her quest will help her bury the memory of her lover Doc. How could she know the past she’s trying to escape would be the key to her destiny?
Doc – He never wanted the life that was thrust upon him – the dark life of a vampire. Still, his solitude gives him the means to cope; that is until the very sexy Jill turns his world upside down. She’ll take possession of his heart and his soul, but the penalty for their love might be higher than he can afford to pay.
COMING SOON–Shifty Business (Book 3 of the Bend-Bite-Shift Trilogy):
Nicky – He’s a dhampir, the offspring a human and a vampire. That makes him a deadly hunter of the vampire race, and an integral member ofKent’s team. To his associates he’s just a mercenary for hire, a heavy. But to Gerry, he’s her man – and she’s the one woman who can turn his coarse soul to that of a gentle lover.
Gerry – She’s a shapeshifting witch with a unique bag of tricks. Her personas change from moment to moment like flipping a switch – at times even she can’t remember who she really is. Somehow Nicky’s found the portal to reach the heart of her, but according to the rules, theirs is a forbidden love. Welcome to the world of Bend-Bite-Shift… All of it fits!

Olivia Hardin realized early on how strange she was to have complete movie-like character dreams as a child. Eventually she began putting those vivid dreams to paper and was rarely without her spiral notebooks full of those mental ramblings. Her forgotten vision of becoming an author was realized when she connected with a group of amazingly talented and fabulous writers who gave her lots of direction and encouragement. With a little extra push from family and friends, she hunkered down to get lost in the words. She’s also an insatiable crafter who only completes about 1 out of 5 projects, a jogger who hates to run, and is sometimes accused of being artistic, though she’s generally too much of a perfectionist to appreciate her own work. A nativeTexasgirl, Olivia lives in the beautiful Lone Star state with her husband Danny and their puppy Bonnie.
