Bitten Shame Excerpt
Doc didn’t say anything, but nodded, placing his hands behind his back to keep himself from reaching for her again. He watched her move back to the chair she’d occupied earlier. She plopped down and folded her legs Indian-style.
“Can you see your reflection?”
He rolled his eyes, annoyed. “Yes.”
“Um…” she bit her lip and looked up at the ceiling. “Do you hibernate during the day?”
“I don’t hibernate. I usually sleep during the day, yes. But it’s just sleep, the same as you do during the evening.”
“Coffin or bed?”
He sighed, “Bed.”
Thank goodness she thought, then giggled, “And do you eat? Food, I mean?”
“I’d become sick. I can’t digest it. I can, however, drink virtually anything without issue.”
“Can you fly?”
He shook his head and she dropped hers in disappointment.
“Turn into a bat?”
“Jill!” his exasperation level rising.
Jill cocked her right eyebrow up and looked him dead on. “How old are you, Doc?”
The vampire’s expression turned serious. “Old enough.”
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.
