Bend-Bite-Shift Trilogy, #2
May 23, 2012
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…
“What’s wrong?” Devan asked as soon as they were alone, “Are you all right?”
Jill shrugged, busying herself by piddling with the bedspread while she considered her words. “Nothing’s wrong, Devan. I just wanted you to know, since I can see you’re trying to figure it out, that Langston and I are just friends. There’s nothing going on between us.”
Devan nodded then plopped onto the bed with a deep sigh. “Okay, but you know I wouldn’t care if there was something. You have the right, I just wouldn’t have expected it.”
Laughing wryly, Jill began changing into fleece pajamas decorated with little, lovable kitties. She winked when she saw the exasperated look her friend gave her. Her assortment of “jammies” had long ago been a source of mirth between the two of them.
“Well, quite an interesting few days… don’t you think?” Jill asked.
“You could say that. For you too. You did what you needed to do, right? With your sire I mean. He’s gone now?”
Jill nodded, furrowed her brow, and closed her eyes. Yes, thanks to Langston’s magic, she was free now. She no longer belonged to anyone. So why didn’t she feel like she was really liberated?
About The Author:
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 native Texas girl, Olivia lives in the beautiful Lone Star state with her husband and their puppy Bonnie.
