The Birthday Ball Hornet Flight

She wound between the legs of the onlookers, her black dress frilled with white and trailing silver ribbons. She came to a stop at the base of the stairs, clinging to the bottom banister as she stared up at me. Her eyes were wide with wonderment and her mouth ajar, but her lips quickly widened into a toothy smile.

A woman of about fifty, with red hair and a white and gray nurse’s uniform, came in from the walk-in closet. She was a perfect fit for the decor, and he wouldn’t have put it past his mother to have hired her on that basis alone.I’m Patty Sweringin, she said, offering her hand. You must be young Mr. Baldwine.

Spy Glass (Glass #3)

Lane. He shook what she put out. How is Mother doing?She’s resting. The smile was as pressed and professional as her uniform. She’s had a busy morning. The hair colorist and stylist were here.Ah, yes, HIPAA, he thought. Which meant she wasn’t allowed to tell him about his own mother’s condition. But that wasn’t the nurse’s fault. And if his mother was exhausted by getting a couple of foils crimped on her head and a blow-dry? How the hell did he think she was doing.

Even White Trash Zombies Get the Blues (White Trash Zombie #2)

When she wakes up, tell her I … He glanced back over at his mother.I’m going to be here for a few days, he said grimly. I’ll tell her myself.

Back out in the hall, he closed the door and leaned against it. Staring across at an oil painting of some Bradford or another, he found that the past came back again like a bee sting.

Lizzie had spoken the words to him out in the garden, out in the darkness, out in a hot, humid summer night. Overhead, thunderclouds had shut out the moonlight, leaving the blooming flowers and specimen trees in the shadows.Excuse me? She glanced down at the contact and back up into his eyes. Unless you have something related to the flowers in this garden, you have nothing to say to me.

You’re not going to give me a chance to defend myself? You’re just going to play judge and jury—Have you always been so prejudicial?

Borden 2 (Borden #2)

She stepped out of his grip. Better that than naive. Especially with a man like you.Don’t believe everything you’ve seen in the papers—

Oh, please. I don’t need to read about it—I’ve seen it firsthand. Two of them left yesterday morning out the back of the house. The night you came here, you brought a redhead home from a bar. And then they say when you went for your annual physical on Wednesday, you came back with a hickey on your neck—presumably from when the woman asked you to turn your head and cough? She cut him off again, putting her palm out to his face. And before you think I’m keeping this happy catalog of conquests because of some latent attraction to you, it’s because the women on staff keep track of these things and won’t stop talking about them.You want to give me a word in edgewise? he countered. Or are you good just keeping this conversation going on your own. Jesus, and you think I’m stuck-up.

You think I’m entitled? Well, you’re putting me in the shade on that one, sweetheart.You’ve decided you know everything about me just because a bunch of other people, who also don’t know me, are talking about things they know nothing about. That’s pretty damn arrogant.

Which is not the same as entitled.You really want to argue Websters’s dictionary with me?
