As The World Dies: Untold Tales Volume 2 The Thief Who Couldnt Sleep (Evan Tanner #1)

Thanks, Etta said quickly, ducking around him.

I fought the urge to drop my eyes, but the fierce intensity in which he studied me granted courage rather than stripped it. I never looked away as his black gaze switched from my closed-off posture, lingered on my nipples visible through the white polo, and skated to Master A’s arm clutching me tightly.His lips thinned as a dark conclusion dawned on his face.

Fractured (Lucian & Lia #2)

I wanted to applaud him. Give him a damn award for noticing that not everything was as it seemed.But then, whatever realisation he’d come to vanished as he grinned just as cold, just as evil, just as nastily as Master A and his associates. Hello, Pim.Just like that, he shortened my name as if he knew me.

Backdraft (The Secret Life of Trystan Scott #2)

You don’t know me. You will never know me.His gaze drifted to my shoulders where my muscles twitched. Not that I had much muscle anymore. I’d wasted away thanks to one meal a day—and only if I earned it.

I hadn’t seen the sun in two years, unless it was through the window.

I hadn’t felt a breeze in two years, unless it was from an air-conditioning unit.The captain’s eyes moved over Nicholas with a father’s instinctive concern. He’d spent years trying to break Hall of the habit, but some things truly were impossible feats.

Not like you to let someone get that close, Nicholas said, nodding at the cut on his forehead. Need the surgeon?And be forced to admit that one of this ship’s cabin boys caught me unawares with a spoon as I went below? Wicked little bugger. I’d rather be boiled in oil.

The Underworld (Fallen Star #2)

Nicholas snorted. Did you find the women?Aye, they’re in one of the officers’ cabins in the stern. Safe and sound, the little doves, he said.

Relief bloomed through Nicholas, replacing his fury at the dying man’s last words. Good.This job… the captain began, for the fifth time that day. I have to tell you, Nick, I’m grateful for the prize and its cargo, but I feel uneasy. I would rather you have nothing to do with the family. It seems like there’s more to this than simply transport to New York.

Of course there was more to it; with this family, there always was. Ironwood’s note had arrived a few days after the much-awaited Letter of Marque and Reprisal had come to Nicholas’s employer, Lowe & Lowe Shipping, authorizing Hall’s ship to act as a privateer and legally—at least in the colonies’ view—hunt British ships. He’d had less than a week to consider the man’s offer, to bring it to Hall and ask for his compliance in searching for this particular vessel and her passengers. They’d agreed to secrecy over the truth of their focused hunt, rather than draw any of the crew into Ironwood business. He’d been slow to send his acceptance of Ironwood’s terms for this job, all the while turning over the chances of it being a ploy to lure him back into Ironwood’s nets for one last act of revenge.But—it had been three years. They’d known precisely where to find him, having stranded him here themselves. Surely they would have come sooner if they’d wanted blood for blood?

He could live with a fair bit of uncertainty, and he could fight to protect himself if it came to that. But the simple facts were these: the job Ironwood offered was a good one, and the reward for its completion would help him achieve his life’s aim far faster than simple privateering.The neat, meticulously formed words had leapt off the page. Bring the two women into New York City by the 21st of September. Do what you will with the ship and its cargo.
