Prudence (The Custard Protocol #1) How They Met, and Other Stories

The elevator doors opened and I walked out into the reception in a daze. Harper was waiting for me, sitting on one of the reception chairs, reading a magazine. Her head lifted at the sight of me and she stood, her smile faltering at my expression.

I looked at Haism who had his back to me now, speaking fervently in low tones – as if I could understand a word of it either way. He was distracted, gesturing with his free hand and pacing.I might never get another chance. I flexed my aching arms and got soundlessly to my feet.

Fire in His Kiss (Fireblood #2)

I did not make it far before shouts rang out behind me, followed by the sounds of Haism crashing through the woods after me. I didn’t look back to see where he was or if he was gaining on me. I ran as fast as my abused and bloody feet would go. Haism was strong and fast and even with the knife, I would be no match for him if he caught me.He might hold the advantage physically, but I knew these woods better than anyone. We weren’t that far from the cliffs and if I could reach them, I could shimmy down to my cave. It took a lot of nerve and agility to climb that cliff face and I doubted that even Haism or his men could do it without a rope. I still had my cell phone because Tarek had stopped searching me after he found the knife so I could call Nikolas and hole up in the cave until he came. I had a plan, now I just had to execute it.A stream loomed ahead and I scrambled across a dead tree I always used as a bridge. Seconds later I heard my pursuer hit the stream running, followed by a splash and a string of curses. I kept going.

Dracula Cha Cha Cha (Anno Dracula #3)

I smelled the salt air a minute before the woods thinned and I saw the break in trees ahead. So close. I put on an extra burst of speed and Haism fell farther behind. Suddenly the trees were behind me and I was hobbling across a small grassy meadow. The rumble of waves told me how close I was and I stuck the knife inside my coat to free my hands for the climb of my life.My feet touched bare rock and I veered to the left making for the lone stunted pine tree above the cave. Over the wind and the roar of the surf I heard Haism shout something unintelligible at me but he was too far away to matter now. I reached the tree and peered down at the rocks below. The ocean’s show of power here never failed to take my breath away but I’d always had Remy to carry me down and keep me safe. I didn’t anticipate the climb but I would rather face a hundred cliffs than the fate waiting for me.

There was no time to steel myself, to work up the courage. Haism was coming, I had to go now. Taking a deep breath, I turned to start the climb.

Dark blue eyes straight from my nightmares gleamed as they locked with mine. Full lips curved in pleasure, sending my stomach plummeting. The last time I saw that mouth it was fanged and snarling at me as the monster behind it vowed to have me.Nikolas put the SUV in drive and pulled away from the club. I think we need to take a closer look into Adele’s real estate holdings.

I chewed my lip as I replayed Adele’s conversation in my head. There had to be a clue there somewhere. Would it have killed her to say the name of the city at least? Why would Adele say that no one would expect Madeline to be wherever she is? Is there a place Madeline would not want to go?Wherever the Master is would be my first guess, Jordan said.

The Souls Mark: BROKEN (The Souls Mark #3)

Chris stuck the phone in his coat pocket. Madeline wouldn’t be foolish enough to hide near the Master. She’s evaded him this long by being smarter than that.She doesn’t want us to find her either, so maybe she’s hiding near one of our strongholds, Jordan suggested. Hell, maybe she’s in Boise.

Nikolas nodded. That is a possibility. We should narrow our search to places near our compounds; see if Adele has property in any of them.Chris pulled out a different cell phone and called Raoul. I half listened to his conversation because I was still going over what we’d heard. When Chris hung up, I took out my phone and called David. Jordan gave me a questioning look, and I held up a finger as David answered.

So far, so good. We caught up for a minute before I got to the reason for my call. Listen, how much did you and Kelvan dig up on Adele? Do you know if she owns any property outside of LA?Yeah, we found a couple, actually.

My pulse quickened. Really? Where?Let’s see. He tapped his keyboard. There are three that we know of. She owns a night club in New York, another one in San Diego, and a warehouse in Miami.
