• Condemnation (War of the Spider Queen #3) The Firebird (Slains #2)

    Well, hello, Mr. Owens. Glad to know I’m on a speaker. Anyone else there that wants to say hi?

    He snorted, looking away. If you’re here to finally kill me, just get it over with, because you’re fucking annoying.I’m not here to do that. Walking into the bathroom, I sat down on the closed toilet seat. I want to talk.

    Caliban (Isaac Asimov's Caliban #1)

    And I want to use that toilet, so if you’re not going to, how about you move your ass and untie me.I laughed. Not going to happen. Not yet.His gaze slowly slid to me. You know they’re coming for me. They already have to be out there, closing in on all of you.

    Dreaming of the Wolf (Heart of the Wolf #8)

    I know. I crossed one leg over the other. So, we don’t have a lot of time.You’re almost out of time.

    Almost. My gaze flickered over him, and I saw the fine tremor that coursed through him. You may not believe this, but I was kidnapped by the Prince. I was taken against my will. I fought to stay alive and to not give in. You have no idea what I had to do to do that. My throat thickened, but I kept going. You can hate me. You can hate Ren. But we’re the world’s best chance right now. We were on the same side.

    A muscle ticked along his jaw. Were?All of that probably meant something was wrong with me. I mean, Drake was still out there bound and determined to knock up some poor, random halfling, but he wasn’t coming after me.

    A laugh bubbled up my throat, but I squelched it before it escaped as I blinked back tears of relief. No one would understand.I was such a terrible person, but I couldn’t help it. Weight lifted from my shoulders. We still had to deal with Drake, but I . . . I felt free.

    Tied with Me (With Me in Seattle #6)

    I thought the Elite had killed all the halflings? Tanner’s voice rose above the noise, drawing my attention.The Elite has hunted down every halfling they’ve been able to discover, Ren answered, and I flinched, knowing that I was one of them. That doesn’t mean they got all the halflings in the whole world. The Prince is obviously better at finding them than we were.

    I don’t know if that’s true since you guys probably killed a whole crapton of them, Tink pointed out.Ren shot him a dark glare before turning to Fabian. How do you know this?

    Just as the Winter Prince has had scouts out looking for possible halflings, we’ve had our own eyes on them. Fabian yawned, appearing bored with this whole conversation. He and his consul left two days ago.Two days ago? While I was passed out because some fae tried to murder me because they thought the Prince was here? Another near hysterical laugh started deep in my belly.

    You had no idea that they were scouting for other halflings? Ren asked Faye.I know Valor wanted the Prince to look for another, but as far as I know, they weren’t actively seeking one. Disbelief colored her tone. At some point, she’d lost her human form. Where did he go?
