Dignity (The Breaking Point #2) Breathless (The House of Rohan #3)

Scarlett paused at the front door, leaning against the wall for support. She was still grinning, and her joy was infectious.

That’s why you panicked, isn’t it? You’d just found out about it... Liam rubbed the back of his hand against his forehead. Damn. So what’s the plan now?We’ll all meet for dinner to talk through a plan for freeing some of the camps.

Day Watch (Watch #2)

Maybe not dinner, if this is all we have... he started. But I’ll figure something out. Everything will be all right.Liam draped an arm around my shoulders and pulled me in. I pressed my face against his shoulder and let out a shuddering breath. My arms locked around his waist.This was right. Being close to him like this was right. For the first time all day my mind wasn’t racing. Here in the dark, my pulse fluttering at his closeness, everything else seemed far away. He kissed my hair, my cheek, and I thought, Can’t lose this, can’t lose this, too—I couldn’t tell him everything, not if I wanted him to benefit from what we were trying to do, not if I wanted to protect him. But we could have this, couldn’t we?

Aloha from Hell (Sandman Slim #3)

Do you trust me to keep you safe? I asked. I knew it must have seemed like I pulled the question out of nowhere, but all of a sudden it felt vitally important. I could see that he’d been hurt by my not telling him about the agents.Darlin’, if it were a choice between you and a hundred of Gray’s finest, I’d pick you every time.

I caught him by surprise, rolling up onto my toes and kissing him full on the mouth.

My fingers were still gripping his shirt when I pulled back. My voice sounded low, rough to my ears. I had to fight for the words, and I was so self-conscious I wasn’t sure I was ever going to pick the right ones. I want to—It was all his fault. He had come to her several times, her John—she refused to call him by the name he now used. Each time, he would silently draw her blood into syringes, check her pulse and her pupils, and depart without a word, leaving behind a tray of food, like a final slap in the face. At first she refused to cooperate, kicking and scratching with her frail human body, but he’d calmly pressed her mind to make her obedient. Imagine that—being pressed by a vampire! Was there no greater humiliation? She had decided she would rather be still than be used as a puppet.

But whether or not she submitted, her time was running out. When he completed his tests, she knew that her long, turbulent life would end. All those years . . . the days and nights spent with distinguished men, the child she’d borne, the efforts she’d made, first to be with greatness, and then to be great herself. She had had so many adventures, so much passion! She had saved vampires from themselves; she knew she had. But no one would give her any credit, and now they never would.After that, after her one heroic attempt to alter the current of history had ended in a sort of meaningless success, there had been years and years of sulking in her rotting mansion, trying to devise a way to regain relevance. Then an opportunity to stage a coup had fallen into her lap, and there’d seemed to be a sort of poetry to it. After all, John had brought her into all of this. He had been her maker. Wasn’t it only fair that she unmake him in return?

Honor Bound (Knights of the Board Room #3)

She lost track of time in her cell, of course—her body suddenly required sleep, like a common animal. But after perhaps three or four days, John came again, with no tools this time, no tray of food. She knew he would be able to smell the fear that this provoked in her, but she held her chin high. She would show him nothing.So you’ve had enough of playing mad scientist? she said crisply. Did you figure out what that . . . that creature did to me?

He looked at her with eyes that hadn’t aged, but which had become ancient all the same. You know what she did, Claire, he said in his quiet way. She’s cured you.She snorted. Cured. Cured. I cannot believe you would say such a thing after all we have been through, as humans, and then as vampires. After all I have done for you.

His eyes narrowed. Be very careful, Claire. The last thing you did for me was try to kill my wife in my presence.She waved a hand. I was upset. You were being unreasonable.

He just looked at her, his face etched with sadness. To her disgust, she felt her lower lip begin to tremble. Would this body never cease to betray her? If you’re waiting for an apology, it will not come, she snapped, meeting his eyes. She knew it was dangerous, but what did it matter now? Feeding Stoker the book united us. It pushed us past the infighting and forced us to find order—choosing cities, taking care with our prey. Kill me for that if you must, but I regret nothing. I saved us.He regarded her with an expression she could no longer read. She fought the human desire to squirm. She would not show him a prey response, not now. Maybe you did, he said at last. And maybe not. Either way, that is not why you will die today.
