Fever (The Chemical Garden #2) Big Boned (Heather Wells #3)

Damn the consequences! And damn you too, for thinking of them and not of her. She’s not ready for this. She doesn’t have the right training, and there’s no guarantee it’ll go the right way for her!

Get that off her, Mr. Prest, Master A growled. She’ll run upstairs and dress in her own things, won’t you, Pim?But Mr. Prest didn’t know that, and I waited with eyes downcast, my heart burning at the thought of having the one element of comfort I’d been given in so long taken away.

Gregor and the Code of Claw (Underland Chronicles #5)

All I wanted to do was slip my arms into the wide, beckoning sleeves, fall to the floor, and hug myself. I wanted to curl into a chrysalis, protected by my blazer armour, and re-emerge so much braver and bolder than before with paper wings and powder beauty able to soar me far, far away.At least the shock of Mr. Prest sharing his wardrobe interrupted my nerves. Adrenaline stopped crackling through my veins; I did my best to breathe rather than asphyxiate.Mr. Prest crossed his arms, his dark grey shirt pushed up to his elbows, revealing ropy muscles and a tattooed bracelet with Japanese characters around his wrist. She can keep it.

Dark Awakening (Dark Dynasties #1)

Master A glowered, digging his fingernails into my shoulder as he directed me toward the staircase. No. She can’t.Why? Mr. Prest slouched against the doorjamb, never taking his black eyes from me.

Because I said so. Master A shoved me toward the bottom step. She’ll be back down as soon as she’s changed.

I stumbled, the loose jacket fluttering like clouds behind me.They certainly aren’t my efforts, Nicholas said, an uneasiness creeping up on him. I have no investment in this war beyond what ships it brings to the water that we can capture.

Really? Etta asked. But I thought this crew was American?Well, Americans were Englishmen until a few months ago, Chase said. Some on our crew still consider themselves to be. But the Challenger sails under a Letter of Marque from the Continental Congress, and we’re authorized to prey only on British ships, so I suppose that seals our allegiance.

Born (Born #1)

A lot of good those papers will do for you if you come across the Royal Navy, Wren said. Traitors are worse than murderers in the eyes of the king. A length of rope will be your reward.Please, sir, Chase begged, holding up a hand. I’ve enough of a headache without a bloody recitation of ‘Rule, Britannia.’

Wren’s look was withering. I only meant, Mister Carter, it strikes me as odd you wouldn’t want to join your Congress’s fledgling navy. Surely there’s some fortune to be found in legitimacy over piracy? Perhaps some…honor?Chase snorted. A fraction of what we’ll take on board a privateer. And rest assured, this is a legal endeavor—much to your own misfortune.

Nicholas raised his own glass, but recognized the glint in Wren’s eyes. The name belied his true nature—this was an osprey across from him, one that was wheeling in circles, waiting to dive.I don’t understand, Etta said, looking uneasily around the table. Why is it odd? It’s his choice to stay out of the American navy, isn’t it?

It was the opening the other man had been hoping for.Why, on his brethren’s behalf, Wren said, his smile all teeth. Surely all this commotion about freedom and liberty has stirred some memories of the chains of his past. Though I’ve also heard that, unlike the British, there have been no offers of freedom in exchange for military service for the slaves of the colonies.
