The Night Watch (Watch #1) Trouble

And… he never tried it on your mother? Or the queen he was with just now? I asked.

I want to know, Lord St. Clair said in a low voice. I want to know who it was, and I will give you the satisfaction of admitting to that desire. I have never forgiven her for her sins. But you…you… He laughed, and the sound shivered right into Gareth’s soul.You are her sins, the baron said. He laughed again, the sound growing more chilling by the second. You’ll never know. You will never know whose blood passes through your veins. And you’ll never know who didn’t love you well enough to claim you.

Nocturne (Guild Hunter #3.5)

Gareth’s heart stopped.The baron smiled. Think about that the next time you ask Miss Bridgerton to dance. You’re probably nothing more than the son of a chimney sweep. He shrugged, the motion purposefully disdainful. Maybe a footman. We always did have strapping young footmen at Clair Hall.Gareth almost slapped him. He wanted to. By God, he itched to, and it took more restraint than he’d ever known he possessed not to do it, but somehow he managed to remain still.

Night of Cake & Puppets (Daughter of Smoke & Bone #2.5)

You’re nothing but a mongrel, Lord St. Clair said, walking to the door. That’s all you’ll ever be.Yes, but I’m your mongrel, Gareth said, smiling cruelly. Born in wedlock, even if not by your seed. He stepped forward, until they were nearly nose to nose. I’m yours.

The baron swore and moved away, grasping the door-knob with shaking fingers.

Doesn’t it just slay you?But there was no way ... no way he could have stopped himself at that point. He would have died before surrendering that envelope to her unopened.

Penelope let out a strangled cry and ran from the church.Colin read the words.

Desire the Night

And then he sank to the pew, bloodless, breathless.wOh, my God," he whispered. "Oh, my God."By the time Penelope reached the outer steps to St. Brides Church, she was hysterical. Or at least as hysterical as shed ever been. Her breath was coming in short, sharp gasps, tears pricked her eyes, and her heart felt...

Well, her heart felt as if it wanted to throw up, if such a thing were possible.How could he have done this? Hed followed her. Followed her! Why would Colin follow her? What would he have to gain? Why would he—

She suddenly looked around.wOh, damn!" she wailed, not caring if anyone heard her. The hack had left. Shed given specific instructions to the driver to wait for her, that shed only be a minute, but he was nowhere in sight.Another transgression she could lay at Colins door. Hed delayed her inside the church, and now the hack had left, and she was stuck here on the steps of St. Brides Church, in the middle of the City of London, so far from her home in Mayfair that she might as well have been in France. People were staring at her and any minute now she was sure to be accosted, because who had ever seen a gently bred lady alone in the City, much less one who was so clearly on the verge of anervous attack?

Why why why had she been so foolish as to think that he was the perfect man? Shed spent half her life worshiping someone who wasnt even real. Because the Colin she knew— no, the Colin shed thought shed known—clearly didnt exist. And whoever this man was, she wasnt even sure she liked him. The man shed loved so faithfully over the years never would have behaved like this. He wouldnt have followed her—Oh, very well, he would have, but only to assure himself of her safety. But he wouldnt have been so cruel, and he certainly wouldnt have opened her private correspondence.She had read two pages of his journal, that was true,but they hadnt been in a sealed envelope!
