Daimon (Covenant #0.5) Time Untime (Dark-Hunter #21)

Inside the truck it was blessedly cool. She almost wept with gratitude when he moved the fan to blow directly onto her.

Wait. He sighed and pulled out a small square package wrapped in dirty gray cloth. Laying the package on the table, he covered it with his hand and slid it toward me. I did the same with the paper bag and we made the exchange at the halfway point. I stifled a sigh of relief when my fingers closed around the package.I lifted the cloth-wrapped package to my ear and shook it before I sniffed it to confirm its contents. Satisfied, I tucked it into an inside pocket and picked up my soda, taking a long sip to hide my eagerness to get out of there. It was never wise to appear desperate or hurried to people like Malloy; you might as well paint a big red target on your back.

American Vampire (Vampire for Hire #3)

Malloy tipped the paper bag and spilled a small glass vial out onto his palm. His eyes glittered as he rolled the vial of yellowish-brown liquid between his fingers.Kid, I’d give my left gonad to know how you managed to get your hands on this stuff… and lived to tell about it.I let out a short laugh to hide my nervousness. Who said I’m telling? I set my glass back on the table and inclined my head toward the vial. I wouldn’t show that off in public too much. What I really wanted to say was, ‘Put that goddamn stuff away before you get us both killed’, but I refrained because it would not do to lose my cool.

Perfect Couple (Superlatives #2)

You don’t need to tell me how to handle my affairs, he retorted, but at the same time he made the vial disappear with a sleight of hand that would do a magician proud.There is no way anyone can trace that back to me, right? Malloy had a wide network and a reputation for discretion. But the contents of that vial could bring a lot of unwanted attention.

He sat up straighter. Like I told you last time; I wouldn’t be in business very long if I gave away my suppliers. And I got to protect my own head, too. I move my stuff through some middle men who’d take the names of their business contacts to the grave. Ain’t no profit in talking. And those guys have no idea where I obtain my merchandise. You can be sure I ain’t telling anyone.

I’m glad to hear that. I slid out of the booth. I’d stayed here too long already.She paused, hearing her words, and they all burst out laughing.

Mamaw brought the conversation back on track. Dora’s made her decision to return here with us, so let’s not waste our time debating the merits and flaws of Calhoun Tupper. Her tone of voice made it perfectly clear that she’d already wasted enough breath on the man.Dora has spent most of her life doing what she was told. And putting others in front of herself—especially Nate. This is the first time she spoke up for herself about what she wanted, by insisting she and Nate would be best off at Sea Breeze. It’s a good start, she added.

The Unwanteds (Unwanteds #1)

Looking at Harper, Mamaw continued, You’re quite right that Dora has to make this decision on her own. But we can guide her toward new habits that help her feel good about herself. Inside and out. Little things that you two take for granted—getting manicures and pedicures, taking time to exercise, going out with the girls—these are all foreign to her. She dotes on Nate and his needs, and then Cal’s, and then the house. She puts herself last, over and over. It’s no wonder she let her figure go. She just gave up. Plus, I doubt there’s been much money for such extras.Mamaw, Carson said, leaning back in the wide chair and tucking her arms around her legs, Dora wasn’t like that as a girl. During our summers, she made sure she had things her own way. I never thought of Dora as shy and retiring. In fact, she still isn’t. She’s downright bossy.

Yes, she is, Mamaw agreed. Now think about it for a moment. Dora is a stickler for what?Nate’s schedule, answered Carson promptly. Nate’s food, Nate’s clothing . . .

Following the rules, Harper said quickly. The Southern belle rules, I mean. Like not showing too much bosom or wearing skirts too short.Never wearing white before Easter or after Labor Day, added Carson.

Manners, swearing, yelling, churchgoing, continued Harper.In a flash, the girls swung their heads around, pointed at each other, and blurted out, Death to the ladies!
