Author Bio: Liv Olteano is a voracious reader, music lover, and coffee addict extraordinaire. And occasional geek. Okay, more than occasional.
She believes stories are the best kind of magic there is. And life would be horrible without magic. Her hobbies include losing herself in the minds and souls of characters, giving up countless nights of sleep to get to know said characters, and trying to introduce them to the world. Sometimes they appreciate her efforts. The process would probably go quicker if they’d bring her a cup of coffee now and then when stopping by. Characters—what can you do, right?
Liv has a penchant for quirky stories and is a reverent lover of diversity. She can be found loitering around the Internet at odd hours and being generally awkward and goofy at all times.

Three days. Three dead bodies. One newly turned, broken-hearted lycan tracker to figure out the connection.
The one summer Rick Barton takes a vacation, all hell breaks loose. Running from an abusive relationship leads him into the arms of hard-nosed lycan Travis Chandler, who gives him little choice but to become a lycan too and join the Paranormal Bureau of Investigation. Out of options, Rick joins the weird organization, expecting some two weeks of training and an adjustment period. Tough luck, he doesn’t get either. On his first day, his new partner offers to promote him to field agent if they get mated – less time wasted on training, more time on the field, and considering Rick is the only tracker the Bureau has on hand when a wave of strange murders hits the community, time is of the essence.
Someone’s killing the leaders of the paranormal world and mutilating the bodies. Investigating and tracking clues is enough of a challenge, and Rick must contend with an impatient Council, Travis’s advances, and actually adjusting to being a lycan. Only one thing is certain: Rick’s new life promises plenty of interesting adventures—as long as he can survive.

I walked to the other side of the tarp, kneeled there and nodded at Travis to pull the thing away. The stink rose and shot up my nostrils like lightning. I winced and almost fell back on my ass. Regaining my balance as I crouched, I sniffed again, this time trying to pick apart whatever scents I could identify. I catalogued them in my head, amazed at how many things I could pick up on by smell alone.
“Okay, pup, lemme have it,” muttered Travis. “What do you smell?”
Death, I thought bitterly and sighed. “Well, besides the… environment, I smell the victim’s blood, though it’s decaying, another creature’s blood but faint, some sex juices, though no cum, sweat… this victim’s by the amount of it, or the aggressor was a profusely sweating creature.”
Travis snorted. “The perp stabbed the vic I think about twenty times by a rough surface count, then chopped her up in six bits. That shit would get someone sweating.”
Marvelous mental picture. I imagined a psycho stabbing the poor woman, rivers of sweat gliding down his body. In my mental image, the perp was a guy and I could see his age and ethnicity too—probably because I’d been watching way too much detective TV shows.
