{Author Spotlight} LIVIA OLTEANO



Hello my lovely readers! As you may or may not know, January marks the end of the first year of book blogging for me. To celebrate I am throwing a Facebook party at the end of the month on the 29th and you are ALL invited! There are prizes to be won, games to play, and fun to be had, all while in your jammies if you like! :) I've connected with some amazing bloggers, readers, and authors over the past year! Today, I'd like to spotlight one of the authors donating a prize to my readers for my blog's birthday! 

Stealing right from her website ;) --- here's a little about Livia! 

Hailing from Romania, Europe (just like Dracula!), Livia Olteano is a loud and proud coffee addict, lover of all things paranormal and incurable romantic. She’s a full time dedicated reader, book blogger and writer, with delectable breaks for indulging in obscene amounts of music and fiddling with all things customizable that are remotely within her reach.
She’s always working on several projects.
  • Passions: Coffee, steamy reads, book talk, personalizing anything that remotely supports customizations
  • Pets: 4 cats, most loved being a black Persian named Onyx (he’s computer literate if you count the ‘/?Q%Rg’ he types while he’s attacking the object of my attention if it’s not him :D)
  • Is inspired by: Music, ever since she can remember.
  • Spends her time mostly: On the PC if she has any say in it. So many ebooks, so little time.

I've had the opportunity to read both GARGOYLE ADDICTION and DRAGON CRAVING and I must say...I'm in love with Livia's Otherworld Summons series! And you may be, too, as Livia has graciously donated an e-set for one winner at the FB party!


Summonari don’t trust. Under their command, they summon any number of creatures from the Otherwolds—but never trust them outside of the summoning.
Gargoyles don’t love. Fierce descendants of dragons, they function on power and fear—never love.
Karla isn’t the happily-ever-after type of girl. No territory-hungry guy is going to stick flags all over her unclaimed grounds.
Kann’s world is death and betrayal. As Dar Primus of Haus Varis, he’s expected to follow tradition but he’s not your regular gargoyle. In fact, he’s anything but.

One fateful Friday night, Otherworlds collide. Stuck together in one world or another, Karla and Kann face everything from Awakenings and turbulent love to Festnavals and bloodthirsty scorned suitors.
If there’s one thing they can’t escape, it’s the addiction to each other. And they’ve got it bad.

The world holds few secrets for Oracle Elana Anderson, or as her fans know her, Ela Deville. Successful author of paranormal romance, Ela has a secret: not all her paranormal characters are quite that fictional. She hardly expected she'd trigger a chain of events that might bring about the end of the world via a pesky dragon. Rendered blind to visions of him, Ela’s only way to save her world is to keep the dragon close…very close.

Obitus, the only awake dragon in the Otherworlds, is determined to get back the magic that was stolen from him and secure his position for a good thousand years. Becoming Akai’s new guardian after getting rid of the current one is the best way to it. But that means getting Ela on his side. He’ll bargain and maneuver his way there if he has to, but ends up tormented by the desire to have her for real.

In a game of deals, half-truths and irresistible cravings, does one heart have to break in order for the other to save the world?

Not part of the Otherworld Summons series, is Blitzkrieg Love!
“Don’t try to be my hero. Don’t care about me. Don’t let go.”

Twenty-two-year-old Beatrice Stevens lives to dance. Two years ago she walked in on the picture of horror: after stabbing her mom 34 times, her father killed himself. She found his corpse still clutching at her mom’s, determined not to let go of her even in death. Now Beatrice freaks out if she’s hugged, loomed over or receives attention from daddy-type guys. Unless she’s dancing—the one thing that feeds her soul and saves her time after time.

Anthony Gowl wants Beatrice from the moment she bumps her adorable nose into his chest. That desire turns into a burning need after he sees her dance. But he’s the overprotective type—he can’t help it, it’s part of him ever since his sister ODed seven years ago. His savior complex makes him the perfect opposite of what Beatrice needs.

But she can’t seem to shake him. He’s both scary and exciting, even when he kneels at her feet. And the closer he gets, the more that toxic waste in her soul threatens to explode
