Hells Knights (The MC Sinners #1) The Unfailing Light (Katerina #2)

This city just avoided one war, Scarlett. Nobody wants to start another one.

I craned my neck to see what we were waiting for. The gondolas? Why?So we can talk and stay in public at the same time.

Secrets Vol. 3 (Secrets #3)

I was about to ask why we needed to stay in public, but then I realized he was afraid we might be attacked again. Unlike the streets downtown, every casino is plastered with video cameras, which would make it hard for a gunman to get away with shooting us. Even the skinners didn’t want to interfere with casino security.When we reached the front, Jameson gave the attendant some money and then helped me climb down into one of the gondolas. The gondolier, a stout Hispanic woman in her midfifties, began to sing loudly in Italian. Actually, it could have been any number of languages, for all I knew, but it sounded pretty. Jameson scooted closer to me.This is so cheesy, I muttered, although in all honesty, I kind of liked it. The boats were beautiful, and the water was a very calming shade of blue. Plus it was nice just to be away from the constant crush of people.

Vampireville (Vampire Kisses #3)

Okay, now can you tell me what happened? I said, keeping my voice low.I lost one of the skinners, but another one cornered me in an alley, he murmured. I ran out of ammunition, but I knocked the gun out of his hand and we fought. I won.

That’s it? I said incredulously, when he didn’t continue. ‘I won’?

What else do you want to know?I nodded, understanding. Which would at least give me a bruise. What if I grabbed for the ax?

You’d probably get in the way of the blade and get cut. If you tried to wrestle it away from me, or hit me, that would show up somewhere: abrasions on your hands, cuts on your knuckles. Something.What if I never saw you coming? I suggested. Ax ninja?

Being Julia (Forever #3.5)

That’s pretty much the only possible way, but it takes a lot of force to remove someone’s head in one clean blow. Unless the killer is a complete badass with brass balls, he probably wouldn’t use enough force on the first pass. He’d have to hack at you, and if you could move at all, you’d get your hands up and your fingers would get cut, or you’d try to crawl away from him, which would likely result in carpet burns or broken fingernails. Defensive wounds.Huh. I thought that over for a few seconds. Not if I was unconscious. Or pressed, I reminded him. It seems possible if there’s a vampire involved.

Maybe one of the Luparii’s vampires? he suggested.I groaned. God, I hope not. That would really be the pickle on this shit sandwich of a situation.

Half an hour later, I threw my arms around a tall, lean vampire with a mustache that looked like it had arrived from 1890 in a time machine.Jesse and I had parked just down the block from the crime scene house, and Wyatt pulled up behind us a second later, ambling over to greet me in his long duster jacket and cowboy hat, his big handlebar ’stache turned up in a smile. I jumped out of the van and hurried over to him. I’m not generally a hugger, but Wyatt always seemed like he needed it. And he was sort of my responsibility.

I stepped back and looked at Jesse. Wyatt, this is my friend Jesse. Jesse, Wyatt.The men gave each other nearly identical wary looks, and then Wyatt looked down at me with concern. Miss Scarlett, are you all right? You look a little peaked.
