Pale Demon (The Hollows #9) Sentinel (Covenant #5)

I closed my eyes and let him lead me downstairs, trying not to think of anything. The pain was overwhelming, and I moved stiffly, like a zombie. It seemed to take forever, but I don’t even really remember moving. The next thing I knew, I was in front of the fridge and Milo was handing me a bag, promising everything would be okay.

I just started to feel his heart pump with mine, but this sudden darkness stung at me. Just like that, he stopped biting me.The familiar cold shaking took over me, my body’s reaction to the separation. I collapsed back on the bed, but Peter still gripped my wrist. If he squeezed much harder, my bones would snap. He leaned over, spitting onto my floor.

Sometimes Never (Sometimes Never #1)

What did you do? Peter turned me, breathing heavily. His eyes burned in agony, but his expression was completely bewildered. Your blood was so bitter. What have you done? Did you let Jack…Peter. I shook my head and tried to reach out for him, but he let go of me and backed away.Alice, what have you done? Peter repeated plaintively, and I had never seen anyone look as tortured as he did then. He ran a hand through his hair, and he looked as if he might be sick.

Happenstance 2 (Happenstance #2)

Peter. I didn’t… I tried to sit up, but overwhelming dizziness forced me back down.The exhaustion I felt before came back in tenfold. Even though Peter hadn’t drunk very much blood, I could barely handle what I already lost.

I tried to think, to reason with him, but my mind was suffocating. The lack of blood and the haze Peter put on me were too much. I closed my eyes, meaning to clear my head for a minute, but when I opened them, Peter was gone.

I knew I should call Jack or Milo or somebody. I had to warn them that Peter was back, and he knew what was going on. I wanted to move, but it was far too much work.No words were spoken. No dalliance or small talk. His silence was strangely welcomed and hated. Welcomed because it meant I could focus on my vertigo and not let stress topple me over, hated because I wanted to know him. I wanted to know why my father had vouched for him and just where the hell he was taking me.

I don’t believe you, I said, my voice slicing through the crisp evening like the truth masquerading as a lie.Even in the gloom, with only street lights for illumination, his eyes were bright and such a light brown they seemed otherworldly. His eyebrow rose, but no other interest showed on his face. What don’t you believe? He fanned his arm to the left, indicating for me to travel that way.

Spell of the Highlander (Highlander #7)

My feet behaved, tottering obediently in the black velvet heels, but my brain swam with a sudden gyroscope of vertigo. I focused hard on the diamond glinting on Jethro’s lapel. Find an anchor. Hold on tight. Do this and you’ll be alright. The stupid rhyme echoed in my brain. My brother had made it up when we were eight after I’d broken my arm falling off the bottom step of our porch.That you convinced my father that you’re dateable material. I bunched the front of my skirt, wishing I could’ve changed before traipsing through Milan in a couture dress. You either bribed him or threatened.

Just like you’re threatening me with your silence and imposing attributes.Threatened….interesting word. His voice positively purred. Placing his hands into his pockets, he added, And if I did? What difference does it make? You’re still here—with me—alone. Dangerous, really.

The footpath decided to roll beneath my suddenly unsure feet. Breathe. Get it together.Heroines in books were portrayed as quaint and lovable if they were clumsy. I had more bruises and scrapes from falling and slamming into things than I would ever admit, and there was nothing quaint about it. I was a hazard. Especially if I had a pair of wickedly sharp dress scissors in my hands and stood up too fast. Anyone in a two metre radius was in danger if my brain decided to throw me helter-skelter into a wall.

It was also a huge inconvenience when faced with an overbearing stranger who just used the words alone and dangerous.Dangerous isn’t a good word, I muttered, allowing a little physical distance to grow between us.
