Code: Veronica (Resident Evil #6) Boneshaker (The Clockwork Century #1)

Marsh’s phone rang, deep in one of his pockets, and he wiped his mouth and pulled it out. When he answered, it quickly became apparent that it was his wife, Marcie.

The first drip of color brought the turquoise of the clear, pristine water; the next, the ivory sands of the beach; the third, the unstoppable, vibrant green of the palms that had shaded him and Sophia on their spot at the beach. The air began to stir, pinching at each of his muscles, until, in the distance, that dark spot appeared, twisting, flying toward him. Nicholas forced himself to stay in place, to meet that darkness as it came alongside him, gripped him by the collar, and dragged him forward.There was nothing to do save surrender himself to the sensation of being buried alive. The darkness was as oppressive as the nudging pressure that raced toward him from every direction, and the high whistle accompanying it trilled ceaselessly, even after he was launched forward into sunlight and sand, the briny scent of the ocean rising to greet him.

Ghost Shadow (Bone Island Trilogy #1)

Bloody hell! he swore, staggering to his feet. The tide rushed in behind, crashing against the beach and sending up a spray of foam that whipped him back to his senses.Aye, said a familiar voice behind him. I think that’s about the right of it.Nicholas spun around, half-desperate with hope. There, standing less than three yards away, surveying the spot where he and Sophia had made camp, was Captain Hall.

Midnight in Austenland (Austenland #2)

His unruly whiskers had grown in, a stark contrast to the neat queue of his hair. The afternoon sun drove nearly all traces of silver from it, creating a crimson halo around his skull. Nicholas found himself choking on his next, surprised laugh. The Red Devil, alive and well and stalking toward him.What are you doing here? he managed to rasp out. His legs had not quite steadied enough to gallop the distance between them as he wished. It was left to Hall to come to him, to take careful, obvious stock of Nicholas as he approached.

Correct me if I’m wrong, Nick, but we were to expect you in New London ‘shortly,’ or am I misremembering? His voice, while not harsh, bore an edge beneath its cheerful note that Nicholas recognized all too well.

Did you receive any of my letters? Nicholas asked in a ragged voice. He thought his heart might blow like a grenade in his chest. Everyone—Chase—are they all alive? Sound?His senses were piqued, his attention snared and drawn back toward the stables. Voices were rising, and the sound of the elephants’ cries had ceased altogether. It seemed their diversion had run its course.

It is lucky you survived, the man told them as they moved through the night, but far luckier indeed that you did not cause a change to the timeline with that elephant stunt.Fair point. Nicholas knew that his luck was bound to run out, but having received so little of it in his life, he was willing to push on to find its limits. Still, he couldn’t release the last few tremors of doubt as he followed the man’s unsteady steps any more than he could take his eyes from him. It was unfair, perhaps, given that the man had saved them when he could just as easily have left them to die on the attacker’s blade, but he couldn’t change his nature in a night.

Heat It Up (Out of Uniform #4)

Ease up and unclench, will you? Sophia muttered, taking notice. He’s ancient. And he’ll have a pot to boil whatever it is we just stole from the elephants.You’re thinking with your stomach, not with your head, he sniped back quietly.

Didn’t you catch what he said about the Shadows? she whispered. He knows who they are—Remus spun around, his voice low. For the love of Christ, do you want someone to hear you speaking another language and assume you’ve snuck in? I won’t be saving you then, believe you me!

Nicholas and Sophia kept their mouths shut. A good thing, because as they rounded onto the next street, Nicholas had to take a generous step back to avoid crossing into the path of several women heading the opposite way, toward the homes they had passed, where candles were lit and waiting for them. The ladies’ dresses were longer and somehow more elegantly draped than the simple tunics of the men, their gauzy hems swirling around their sandaled feet. One nodded as Nicholas passed her, with dark hair shorn shorter than even Sophia’s.Lice? Sophia asked Remus cautiously, once they were clear of the street and onto a far smaller and quieter one.

He shook his head. They cut their hair to give to the soldiers for their bows. Do you know nothing, child?Sophia made an insolent face behind his back.
