Taken by a Vampire (Vampire Queen #9) Lady Crymsyn (Vampire Files #9)

Then she tightened her fingers, and Jesse immediately forgot about the sensation of riding. Little boy, she thundered, you have no idea what’s coming. It’s a shame you won’t live to see your friends suffer and die.

Impulsively, he turned and grabbed Lex’s hand, pulling her with him into the sunlight. She put her arms around his neck, laughing, and I looked away, feeling an ache in the pit of my stomach. They were so obviously in love. Molly reached over and squeezed my hand.So, Quinn said, turning so Lex’s back rested against his chest. His arms were still wrapped around her. I hear there’s a party.

Blood on the Water (Vampire Files #6)

Half an hour later, the four of us were climbing out of Lex’s Subaru in front of a very large house in a very nice neighborhood. I didn’t know anything about architectural styles or whatever, but it was brick and there were arches and Molly muttered the word tony, so I figured Lex’s parents were rich. That was interesting. She had never given off a spoiled rich kid vibe.Molly and I let Lex lead us in, and she gave me a wink over her shoulder. Okay, she had been right: this was fascinating.Inside, the noise hit me first, followed by the food smells. We went through a small foyer into a huge dining/kitchen area, where dozens of people were milling around, talking and laughing. As the door closed behind us, the number of people in the room instantly made me nervous. I wasn’t claustrophobic, but I hadn’t grown up with any extended family around. Even when my parents were alive, there were never more than four Bernards in a room. This was taking family birthday party to a level I hadn’t experienced.

Hit Man (Keller #1)

The Luthers all had that fresh-faced look I had learned to associate with Boulder, and even if I hadn’t known that many of them were related, I probably could have guessed by their similar features: honey-blonde hair, brown eyes, high cheekbones. It was like walking into a commercial for multivitamins. It made me want to drink a gallon of diet soda and eat a whole gas station pizza.A couple of them looked up as we came in, waved, and went back to talking. An older woman with silver hair and a stout figure came bustling over to hug Lex. Hi, honey. Oh, Quinn, you made it. That’s wonderful. She smiled up at him, and then her eyes turned to Molly and me. And you must be Sashi’s friends. I’m Lex’s mom, Christy.

Molly nudged me, and I stepped forward to shake hands and introduce myself.

Lex got pulled into a conversation with a short-haired woman, but before I could even feel uncertain of myself, Christy Luther reached out and snagged the arm of a passing girl holding a loaded appetizer plate. She was college age, with olive skin, thick dark hair, and Sashi’s features. I felt a jolt of recognition. She might have looked like her mother, but the confident stance and capable broad shoulders—those were purely from her father.Well, look, you guys are going to have to make your own plan, based on the terrain and the players. But I do have a few . . . suggestions.

After I hung up with Lex, Wyatt went down to the seating area to call Laurel, while I sat on the bed and called Cliff. When he answered, he was in the Venetian parking lot, driving around to pick up Juliet, Tara, and Bethany to rush them back to Los Angeles. I asked him to pull over for a moment, and explained the situation.I don’t know, Scarlett, he said, sounding uneasy. No offense, but I’m not all that invested in saving a bunch of vampires from themselves. And this does not sound like something Dashiell would want you to do.

Sweet Trouble (Bakery Sisters #3)

I heard something in his voice. On a hunch, I said, Did Hayne already call you? Dashiell would be pissed that I was going against his wishes, if not his direct orders. And Hayne was Dashiell’s human right-hand man.Heavy silence, and then, Yeah. I told him you were sending me home, and he said that was a good idea. He didn’t say it, but I got the impression that Dashiell is hoping you won’t want to go in without backup.

He’s betting on me chickening out? Well, that just made me more committed.Stay on task, Scarlett. Chain of command seemed really important to Cliff, so I said, Look, did Hayne officially order you to go back to LA?

I interrupted him. Then I will give you ten thousand dollars to come along tonight and be my backup. In theory, you won’t even be in danger. You’ll mostly be protecting Laurel while she does a spell. Without waiting for his response, I outlined the plan that Lex and I had come up with. Well, mostly Lex.There was a long pause. Then, in a quiet voice, he said, Ten thousand dollars?

He sighed. All right, you’re on. But if Hayne calls me and gives me a direct order to come back, anytime before we actually leave, I have to do it.A few minutes later, Wyatt hung up with Laurel. Cliff is in, I told him. What did Laurel say?
