By a Thread (Elemental Assassin #6) A Tale of Two Dragon (Dragon Kin #0.2)

Taking a risk, she reached out and stroked his arm. I will never judge you, Axe. You’ve got to believe me.

And what do you know, it was probably the loose, relaxed, post-gasm float that made him actually answer her instead of hanging up, which was what he should have done.How many people did you lose in the raids? he whispered.

Tempting the Bodyguard (Gamble Brothers #3)

Seven cousins, she intoned with sadness. It’s just my father and me left, and the two of us were very lucky.I lost my immediate family. My mother and sister were at home with me. My dad was at work. They found our house address on his falsified human driver’s license after they killed him. That was how they got us. He took another drag. So that’s why I don’t smile.Me, too. Which was something else he wouldn’t have said under other circumstances. I couldn’t save them. My mother and sister, that is.

Tempt the Stars (Cassandra Palmer #6)

He shrugged. I lost too much blood. The lessers broke the door in and I came down the stairs when I heard the noise. They attacked me, thought I was dead, so they left me. To this night, I don’t know why I lived. They used machetes. I stayed conscious long enough to hear my mother scream for my sister to run—and then both of them died … horrible deaths. When she made a choking sound, he shook his head. TMI. Sorry.I’m really … it doesn’t feel like enough, but it’s all I can say. I’m so sorry.

How did you survive? What … did someone come save you?

I woke up in a pool of my own blood just before dawn. I was so weak … I barely managed to shut the front door before the sun burned me to shreds. I crawled … through the house, you know, and found their … yeah. It was bizarre, the sight of them both laying on the linoleum, red blood everywhere, skin white—they had reached for each other, my mom had one hand— He had to stop and clear his throat. My mom was holding her hand out for my sister and my sister was trying to get to her. Both of their sets of eyes were open … I don’t know. After seeing that? Something in me woke up. That’s all I can say—and that’s when it started. That’s when I decided that sometime, somehow, I was going to find a way into the war with the Lessening Society. It’s the only way I can walk the earth without wanting to blow my own brains out. He laughed harshly. Well, I also decided that I hate aristocrats—although that didn’t come for two more nights after that.This wasn’t strictly true, but she’d looked at where the reverse lever would go and reckoned she could handle it, as long as nobody was yelling horse abuse at her.

I don’t want to sell it.It’s my van, and I don’t care.

The Wicked (Vampire Huntress Legend #8)

Wullie turned and looked about to stomp off out of the pub.Please, said Nina. I have plans for it, and there aren’t any others I can find for sale that are just what I need, and I’ve come all this way and I’m really going to look after it.

Wullie turned around and Nina’s heart leaped briefly.Naw, he said. And he let the door bang behind him on the way out.

Nina sneaked a glance at Cathy Neeson, who was sitting on the end of the interview panel with her arms folded and her face giving absolutely nothing away. Would it really hurt her to smile? thought Nina. She was doing her best, in the new black tights she’d splurged on, trying to make her hands look calm and relaxed rather than squirming them on her lap. Just a little glimmer of recognition? Although she hadn’t studied that hard for the interview, nobody knew the ins and outs of the books better than she, the ordering and filing systems and everything that went into making the library work properly.(She couldn’t know that Cathy Neeson had forty-six interviews to sit in on this week, for only two jobs, both of which she was under orders to give to lively young people who could shout a lot, looked nice in the pamphlets and would work for next to nothing, and although she’d argued about it at the top level till she was blue in the face, she could do absolutely nothing about it. Top management was completely safe. New, young, cheap hires who would do anything were coming in. It was the middle ranks, the professional, clever book people, who were simply no longer required.)

So I feel that a library meeting and anticipating the needs of its readers is absolutely my top priority, went on Nina, feeling as she did so the sense of her words going into space, of simply tumbling unheard from her mouth. She had a ridiculous, nervous urge to say something utterly absurd just to see if they kept nodding or not.Yes, said a different humorless-looking woman wearing a pants suit and very pink lipstick, leaning forward. But what about anticipating the needs of your nonreaders?
