The Secret Hour (Midnighters #1) Born to Bite (Argeneau #13)

I twisted the cap on and off. I don’t know. They’re trying to stabilize her. They haven’t given us an update for about an hour or so.

Mercy’s tone unnerved her. Her aunt had suddenly shifted into FBI-agent mode. That’s right.Holding her phone to her ear, Mercy met Kaylie’s gaze. You need to tell me everything he’s told you about working out there. Everything. No matter how inconsequential it seems to you.

Dragon Avenger (Age of Fire #2)

Nearly an hour after Mercy called him, Truman took the final turn onto the long road that led to the McDonald ranch. He’d nearly missed it in the dark, but beside him in the vehicle, Mercy had been watching, her gaze glued to the side of the road. He’d called Deschutes County to request backup at the ranch and to request the county’s patrols keep an eye out for Cade’s pickup. The state police had also been notified and warned that the truck might have gone off the road between the ranch and Bend. The entire trip to the ranch, Mercy had studied the side of the road, watching for skid marks or signs that a truck had disrupted the brush.The pitch dark made for difficult searching. Twice he’d pulled over because she’d seen something, only to discover no truck. Each time Truman had recalled the image of Pence’s abandoned truck. Would they find Cade’s truck in a similar situation? And what did that mean for Cade?I don’t think he would have stood her up. I think he’s in trouble, Mercy repeated for the third time. Her gaze was laser sharp, searching for the truck, but he felt her distraction, her brain considering every situation they might encounter when they arrived at the ranch.

Sounds like their relationship is serious, Truman said.As serious as you can be at seventeen, replied Mercy. I think it’s mostly hormones and heartbreak at that age, but if he’s purposefully avoiding her, he’s going to get an earful from me.

A sideways glance showed she was deadly serious. Her baby had been hurt, and Truman enjoyed seeing her mama bear instincts. Kaylie had exposed a whole new side of Mercy that he deeply appreciated. When Mercy had first come to town, she’d hid behind a professional unemotional wall, and immediately Truman had felt challenged to chip away at it. He’d succeeded, but her relationship with Kaylie had ripped away bricks only a daughter could reach, exposing a tender side of Mercy that made his heart warm.

How far out is our backup? she asked.Agreed, Owen said gruffly, looking as if he’d just agreed to never eat red meat again. But the baby—

I can’t wait to meet my new niece or nephew, Mercy said. You’re going to have more help than you know what to do with.Owen said his good-byes and strode out of the diner. Mercy slid into the booth across from Rose, enjoying the flush of color on Rose’s cheeks. She’s going to be an awesome mother. Fear still struck Mercy when she thought about Rose having the baby of her rapist. But the moments of fear were outnumbered by her moments of pride in her sister. She knew people would talk behind Rose’s back, but if Mercy got wind of it, they’d never utter a word again.

Down and Dirty (Dare Me #2)

If they treated Rose’s innocent child any differently because of who its father had been, they would have Aunt Mercy to deal with. If anything was left after Mother Rose handled them.Owen is different, Rose said. He’s always been overprotective, but I’ve never heard him so angry before.

No, it’s not directed at me, but I hear it in the way he says his words. It’s like he needs to vent . . . get a million things off his chest. It’s been like that since Levi died. He hasn’t been the same.I know. But I don’t really know. I didn’t have time to get to know Owen again before Levi died. I still carry a lot of guilt about that, Mercy whispered, suddenly overwhelmed by images of her murdered brother.

Don’t, ordered Rose. It had nothing to do with you.I know, Mercy repeated, lying for the second time. But it will always feel that way.

Hello, ladies! Ina Smythe, Barbara Johnson, and Sandy from the bed-and-breakfast greeted the sisters, and Mercy slid over in the huge booth to make room. A few seconds later Pearl showed up and took the last bit of room in the booth. Mercy was silent as she let the conversation flow around her. Rose had invited her to join the small group of women who met every few weeks to chat and gossip. It sounded self-serving, but they also discussed who in the town needed help. The hidden power of the town sat at the table, Mercy suddenly realized. These women knew everyone, knew about their situations, and were driven to help. Since Mercy had joined the group, they’d raised money for school supplies and clothes for a young family. They’d also supplied three weeks of dinners when Sarah Browne’s husband died.How’s that baby treating you? Sandy asked with an envious look in her eyes. Mercy didn’t know why the tall redhead wasn’t married and didn’t have children. She had one of the most nurturing personalities Mercy had ever encountered. It was perfect for running her business.
