• Faking It (Losing It #2) A Hathaway Wedding (The Hathaways #2.5)

    Anna was too used to living with monsters to do more than flinch at Jonesys volume, and even that had been very slight. The spirits that had been slowly gathering closer as Anna and Jonesy spoke vanished, frightened by the monsters raw appearance.

    The claws at the tops of the spiders legs scraped over the rock.Nesryn sheathed her sword again.

    Asa (Marked Men #6)

    Good, the spider purred. Good that you know how useless that Fae rubbish will be.Nesryn drew her bow, nocking an arrow.The spider laughed. If Fae archers did not halt me long ago, human, you will not now.

    Thief of Time (Discworld #26)

    Beside her, Sartaqs sword lifted a fraction.Dying here, now, had not occurred to her at breakfast while Borte braided her hair.

    But there was nothing to do as the spider advanced, fangs slipping from her jaws.

    When I am done with you, rider, I shall make your bird scream. Drops of liquid plopped from those fangs. Venom.Ooh. Youve gotten such an attitude since youve been home from college, Daniel teased as he walked over to her.

    Where are they? She ignored him and glanced over at the clock hanging above the fireplace. They shouldve been here by now.Well, Alex just got home for the weekend, Daniel said as he slid his arm around her waist, pulling her closer to him.

    Talon (Talon #1)

    I know. We shared a ride back from Sundham, she reminded him.Yeah, but you know, he and Gemma are probably spending quality time together.

    Harper wrinkled her nose. Gross.Hey, you didnt think it was gross when we were spending quality time together this morning.

    His other arm encircled her, pulling her close to him, and Harper didnt resist. She loved it when he held her like that, crushing her to him, as his mouth pressed against hers. A familiar heat radiated through her, and she wrapped her arms around his neck.Even after all this time, and all the kisses theyd shared, some of them in bed earlier this morning, each time he kissed her, there was still that hint of urgency and desperation, like theyd never really be able to get enough of each other.

    Harper wouldve gladly stayed in his arms, kissing him all afternoon, but she heard their guests coming up the walkway on the island.Theyre here, she said, and since he looked so thoroughly disappointed at having to let her go, she gave him one more quick kiss on the lips before separating from him.
