The two were assigned to guard a newly turned teenage vampire turned by a dangerous rogue, against her will. I really liked that one, but I read it eons ago! As I read, bits and pieces came back to me, so all was not lost. Oh, and where was Bricker? Of course, I get it. Lots of heartwarming moments, and a few more twists and turns one that I totally saw coming. Oh well. Maybe the next one? She spotted an office and a hallway leading to cells on her left, but he led her to a door on the right and straight into a garage, where several vehicles sat waiting.
Drina cast a quick glance over the few vehicles inside. They were all the same, SUVs, she thought they were called. She followed Mr. Tall-Dark-and-Mute to the back passenger door of the first vehicle. When he opened it, and then simply waited, she eyed him narrowly. Smiling sweetly, she ducked under his arm and moved past him to the front door instead.
Drina pulled it open and quickly slid inside, then turned to eye him challengingly. His response was to heave a long-suffering sigh, toss her bag on the floor at her feet, and slam the door closed. He worked for her uncle, after all, the most taciturn man she'd ever met. On this side of the ocean at least. She added that last thought as Mr. Tall-Dark-and-Miserable slid behind the steering wheel and started the engine.
She paused as he suddenly slid a letter from an inside pocket of his fur-lined coat and handed it to her. Drina shook her head and opened the letter. It was from Uncle Lucian, explaining that her escort was Anders and he would be delivering her directly to Port Henry. Perhaps he really was mute, she thought, and glanced curiously to the man as she slipped the letter into her pocket.
The nanos should have prevented it He turned an arched eyebrow in her direction as he steered the vehicle up the driveway beside the house, and shrugged. You were doing well enough on your own.
So … rude, not mute, Drina thought, and scowled. That had him hitting the brakes and jerking around to peer at her with wide eyes.
Scowling at her sarcasm, he eased his foot off the brakes to cruise forward along the driveway until they reached a manned gate. Two men came out of a small building beside the gates and waved in greeting. They then immediately set about manually opening the inner gate. Once Anders had steered the SUV through and paused at a second gate, the men closed the first one.
They then disappeared inside the small building again. A bare moment later, the second gate swung open on its own, and he urged their vehicle out onto a dark, country road. She raised an eyebrow, noting the tension now apparent in the man. He glanced at her sharply, his own eyes narrowed. Drina snorted and tugged on her seat belt. As in big, silent, and good only for holding wood.
Nanos do make sure immortal males function in all areas. She then shifted in her seat to a more comfortable position and closed her eyes. I never sleep well on planes. Enjoy the drive. Despite her closed eyes, she was aware that he kept glancing her way. Drina ignored it and managed not to grin.
The man needed some shaking up, and she had no doubt this would do it. He wouldn't be able to read her, which would leave him wondering But it served him right.
It was a lesson the man should learn before he got too old to learn anything anymore. Harper considered his cards briefly, then pulled out a six of spades and laid it on the discard pile. He glanced toward Tiny, not terribly surprised to find the man not looking at his own cards but peering distractedly toward the stairs. Harper sat back with a little shake of the head, thinking, Lord save me from new life mates. The first four couples had been together for a year and a half now, and were just starting to regather some of their wits about them.
They were still new enough to be trying at times, but at least they could actually hold on to a thought or two longer than a second. Because really, there was no worse torture for someone who had just lost their long-awaited and prayed-for life mate than to have to stand by and witness the joy and just plain horniness of other new life mates.
But he had nowhere to go. When Jenny had died, the two couples had surrounded and embraced him and pulled him into their little family.
They had cushioned and coddled him during the first shock of her loss, and slowly nursed him back to the land of the living, and he was grateful for it. So much so, in fact, that he was glad for this opportunity to repay some of their kindness by looking after things while they went on their honeymoons. Tiny finally discarded, and Harper picked up another card, but then paused and glanced toward the window as the crunch of tires on new snow caught his ear.
Tiny was immediately out of his seat and moving into the kitchen to peer out the back window. When he then moved to the pantry to collect his coat from the closet there, Harper stood and followed.
