Devil May Cry (Dark-Hunter #11) Small Town

I wasn’t really after his respect, but I didn’t say that. I did this for my family because I loved them. Not to get a pat on the back.

Indoors was cozy and hot, both effects produced by an unseasonably large fire. A woman in Regency dress and marriage cap rose from behind a desk and led Jane to a seat beside the hearth.Welcome to i8i6. I am Mrs. Wattlesbrook. And what shall we call you? Jane Hayes is fine.

Obsidian Butterfly (Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter #9)

Mrs. Wattlesbrook raised her eyebrows. Is that so? You are certain you still wishto retain your Christian name? Very well, but we mustn’t keep our entire name, right? We shall address you as Miss Jane Erstwhile.And how old are you, Miss Erstwhile?

Hammered (The Iron Druid Chronicles #3)

Mrs. Wattlesbrook leaned on her arm with an air of impatience. Youmisunderstand me. How old are you? she asked, raising her eyebrows significantly. You are aware that at this time a lady of thirty-three would be an affirmed spinster and considered unmarriageable.

I’d rather not lie about my age, Jane said, then immediately winced. Here she was entering Austenland where she’d pretend the year was r8i6 and that actors were her friends and family and potential suitors, and she worried about shaving a few years off her age? Her stomach shrank, and for the first time she feared she might not be able to see this through.

Mrs. Wattlesbrook was watching her shrewdly. Jane gulped a breath. Could she know? Did she have that uncanny Carolyn intuition, did she sense that Jane was here not as an idle vacationer but because she had a nasty obsession? Or did she assume even worse—that Jane was seeking a fantasy in earnest, that she believed she might find him, find love, on this It’s a Small World ride?Hunter opened his mouth to respond, but Ada jumped in front of him before he could get the words out. Shut up, she spat, pointing her index finger at me. How dare you? You barely try to find your boyfriend when he’s been gone and then yell at him the instant you see him? Seriously, a couple of texts? Give me a break. I would have called the police! You have no right to be screaming at him. He should be mad at you!

Mad at me? What? I could barely leave my room for days and just flunked three exams, how was it my fault? How did she know about the texts, anyway? Was she checking Hunter’s phone?What are you talking about? I responded angrily. Knowing that Ada and I had barely interacted, I struggled to make sense of her aggressive accusations. The time we’d met at dinner might’ve been awkward but this was ridiculous. Was this what Hunter was referring to when he said Ada was pushy? Are you jealous? I shot back.

Saving the Sheikh (Legacy Collection #4)

She reared back for a second before laughing bitterly and turning toward Hunter. Oh my god. Are you serious right now? Hunter, what the hell do you see in this girl? Is it her ability to be a thick-headed moron? Is that what you relate to?Hunter looked conflicted. Ada, please stop, he said, his eyes getting softer by the minute. Lorrie, we can talk—

Stop? Ada screeched. Her eyes were darting between Hunter and me wildly. Stop what? Trying to look out for you? This girl’s crazy, Hunter. Anyone can see it in two seconds. I get that you feel sorry for her and everything, but it’s okay to leave the rescue job to someone else. You have your own shit going on.Feel sorry for me? What was she talking about? My face was burning. Crazy? You don’t even know me! You think I’m crazy because I want some answers from Hunter?

She turned to Hunter—whose face was an uncharacteristic combination of panic and confusion—and shook her head. This is impossible.What? I snapped, furious heat coursing through my cheeks. That you’re the other woman?

Her jaw fell open. Good lord, now this? I should f**king slap you.Several people stopped to look at the source of the commotion we were causing. This was quickly becoming a scene.
