Light My Fire (Dragon Kin #7) Tempting the Jaguar

Well, again, HCG levels are really only an indication in the very beginning—and solely in relation to how much they’re increasing. The doctor stood up and opened a drawer, taking out a little boxy device that had a sensor attached to it by a thick wire. May I check for a heartbeat?

Kayla grins. "He did learn from the best. But I'm surprised he gave that to you. He's been working on it for a year."I look at her, stunned. "A year? I can't accept this," I say, reaching to take it off.

Lavender Vows (Medieval Herb Garden #1)

She places a hand on mine to stop me. "You must. It would break his heart if you refused. He's quite taken with you. I think you remind him of his mother.""What's she like?" I ask, realizing I know very little about him."She was beautiful, like you," she says. "Fae, of course. A slave. She was raped by a vampire and left for dead, pregnant with him. She died when he was a young child, though no one knows how. I suspect the vampire who attacked her came back to finish the job. He would have gone after the child too, but Daison was smart, clever. He hid until it was safe. I found him days later, his dead mother still in their home. That's when I took him in as my apprentice. I made up a story about him to cast off suspicion. He's a Shade, so he couldn't be enslaved, but it wouldn't have gone well for him if he'd been left to fend for himself, either."

The Birthday Ball

My throat tightens at the story, and I fight a wave of sadness imagining what that poor boy has been through. "Did anyone catch the vampire who hurt his mother?"Kayla laughs a bitter laugh. "No one ever looked for him. She was a slave. Property. Nothing."

I feel sick, struggling to think of what to say when we hear a scream from outside. Kayla and I run around the back of the forge, where Kayla keeps a wagon she loads up with weapons to deliver to Fen, or other customers as needed. Daison was meant to transfer the new supply of swords to the wagon, but something is wrong.

Another scream coming from behind the wagon, which looks off-centered, as if it's been knocked to the side.Saxton continued. They have triggered that provision, and unfortunately, from a legal standpoint, it is valid—even though it’s being used in a way that was not contemplated by the original drafters of the laws.

How did we not see this coming? someone said.It is my fault, Saxton said roughly. And accordingly, in front of you all, I tender my resignation and removal from the bar of solicitors. It is unforgivable that I missed this—

The Fault in Our Stars

Fuck that, Wrath said with exhaustion. I do not accept your—My own father is the one who did this. Just as bad, I should have researched this. I should have—

Enough, Wrath snapped. If you follow that argument, I should have known all along, because my sires are the ones who drafted that shit. Your resignation is not accepted, so shut the f**k up about all the quitting and sit the f**k down. I’m going to need you.Man, he had such great interpersonal skills.

Wrath cursed some more, and then muttered, So if I hear this right, there is nothing I can do.From a legal standpoint, Saxton hedged, that would be correct.

In the long pause that followed, he surprised himself. After having been so miserable for not just the centuries before he’d decided to live up to his father’s legacy, but the actual nights on the job, you’d think he’d be relieved. All that paperwork weighing him down, the demands from the aristocracy, the antiquated everything—oh, and then there was the stuck-in-the-house, only-sparring-with-Payne, dagger-hand atrophy that went along with everything.To the point where he felt like a Hummel figurine.
