Dissolution (War of the Spider Queen #1) Neverwinter (Neverwinter #2)

Not fooled, I made a face and then kissed him again, pouring my second yes into it.

I know. She smiles. She has a nice voice like a motion picture star. I’m Sarah Rose Maddock. You should come for tea someday.And your friend. That surprises me. Bitsy has slowly been accepted in the bedrooms of white women, as my birth assistant, but no one has ever asked us for tea.

Armed & Magical (Raine Benares #2)

We’d be delighted, I accept formally.Maddock is already standing. Enough of the pleasantries, his rangy body says. He adjusts his suspenders and pushes his Sunday farmer’s hat down firmly over his thinning dark hair, then takes both their plates and places them in their woven picnic basket. I have to get home to milk, he announces, though we both know it’s way too early. Do you need a ride?No, thank you. I have my horse.

The Siren (The Original Sinners #1)

Mrs. Maddock nods good-bye as he bumps her wheelchair across the grass and out to their truck on the dirt road. I look around again for Bitsy. She’s still sitting with Byrd, their thighs touching, her hand on her cheek, listening carefully to something he’s saying.I’m contemplating getting on my mare and leaving without her when Samantha, the church soloist, comes over, still carrying Twyla’s baby, Mathew, and pushing two shy pregnant girls in front of her, one coffee-colored and one ebony. She stops and introduces them as Harriet and Sojourner Perry, her nieces. Harriet, the smaller of the two, is sucking her thumb. Twyla stands with them, arm in arm.

I know where you got your names, I tell the girls. They look up from their white Sunday shoes. I do. I bet Harriet is for Harriet Tubman, the ex-slave who risked her life to lead over three hundred others to freedom, and Sojourner for Sojourner Truth, the famous black orator who stood for women’s and Negroes’ rights.

Harriet takes her thumb out of her mouth and grins. How’d you know that?That would be appreciated. I felt a little shaky and light-headed, like my blood sugar had dropped. We done?

As soon as we got outside the police station, I leaned against the wall for support, sucking in air like there had been none inside.I felt O’Dea’s hand on my back. Skylar? He sounded worried.

Magic Binds (Kate Daniels #9)

I waved away his worry with my good hand.His hand pressed deeper. There won’t be a trial, he murmured in my ear. I’ll make sure of it.

Confused, I looked at him, my breath stuttering at finding his face so close to mine. What do you mean? I whispered.Determination hardened his gaze. It won’t go to trial. I know people who can be very convincing when they want to be.

You don’t need to. He surprised me further by grabbing my hand and leading me back to his car. You just need to know that I won’t let this situation become a public media circus for you.You know what’s freaking me out? I said as he opened the door for me.

I met his gaze. I believe you.A FEW DAYS LATER, AFTER being shadowed by Autumn almost twenty-four/seven since that day at the police station, I took a walk along the River Clyde on my own. It was mid-October now, the air was brisk, crisp and fresh, and filled my lungs in a way that made me feel a little light-headed. But in a good way.
