Find a Stranger, Say Goodbye The Ghost King (Transitions #3)

Then, with a sudden billowing of his wings, we slowed and began to descend. I dared look down at the ground, but then averted my gaze again as the griffin launched into a dive that was almost as fast and terrifying as a freefall. I clamped my eyes shut and kept them closed until I felt a shudder. I cautiously lifted my eyelids to see that we had landed outside a cave. A cave etched into the side of a towering snowy mountain.

I would’ve killed for a book to read. Or anything to help take my mind off time passing… and the crude gestures the merfolk had started making to me from their tank. I guessed that they were just as bored as I was. I glared daggers back at them for lack of anything else to do. In the end, I retreated to the bathroom and stepped in the shower, pleased that the water was hot. I found the shower comforting, and I would’ve stayed there for a lot longer if I hadn’t heard keys being inserted into my cell door. As it clicked open, I leapt from the shower and grabbed a towel, wrapping it tightly around me. I opened the door just a fraction to see who it was.My eyes were met by Mark’s icy blue ones. I quickly shut the door again.

Mistwood (Mistwood #1)

What do you want? I called. Truth be told, I had expected him to return sooner.I’d like you to come with me.I shouldn’t have expected anything less cryptic from him by now.

Nice Girls Dont Live Forever (Jane Jameson #3)

Okay, I muttered. Let me get dressed.I fumbled around in the bathroom, looking for my clothes before realizing that I had left them on the bed outside. Dammit.

Uh, would you hand me my clothes? I called to Mark through the door. They should be on the mattress.

I opened the door again, just wide enough to thrust out my hand. A few seconds later, he had planted my clothes into my palm and I pulled them in through the door before closing it again behind me. I hurriedly dried myself and got dressed. Glancing in the mirror, I realized for the first time how wrecked I looked. I had dark shadows under my eyes and in general looked like I hadn’t had a wink of sleep in days. I gathered my hair above my head and wrapped it in a tight bun before leaving the bathroom.But Francesca would come around, he was fairly certain of that. She’d have to. She’d been compromised- quite thoroughly, he thought with some measure of satisfaction. And while she’d not been a virgin, that still meant something to a principled woman like Francesca.

He was left with a decision-did he wait out her anger, or did he needle and push until she accepted the inevitability of the situation? The latter was sure to leave him bruised and gasping, but he rather thought it presented a greater chance of success.If he left her alone, she would think the problem into oblivion, maybe find a way to pretend nothing had ever happened.

Afterburn (Afterburn & Aftershock #1)

Did you get it started? he heard her ask from across the room.He fanned a spark for a few more seconds, then let out a satisfied exhale when tiny orange flames began to flicker and lick. I’ll have to nurse it along for a little while longer, he said, turning around to look at her. But yes, it should be going strong quite soon.

Good, she said succinctly. She took a few steps backward until she was butted up against the bed. I’ll be right here.He couldn’t help but crack a wry smile at that. The cottage held a single room. Where else did she think she was going to go?

You, she said, with much the air of an unpopular governess, can remain over there.He followed the line of her pointed finger to the opposite corner. Really? he drawled.

I think it’s best.Fine. And then he stood and began to strip off his clothing.
