This week I’m featuring quotes from Cindy Gerard’s Show No Mercy.
Well, she wasn’t fearless now. She was gutless. After Argentina, she’d turned down stories baby reporters would wet their pants over..
Or maybe she’d just wanted to get close to him, she finally admitted.
And because it was a very big deal that he didn’t want to talk about it and because she didn’t want to make him wish he hadn’t bothered, she blinked back tears and hugged the stuffed dog to her breast. “Yeah. I’m very attached.”
And he stayed put. He sensed something intimate and alarming growing between them and he knew he should nip it off. He hadn’t talked this much since… hell, he couldn’t remember ever talking this much andyet every time he was alone with her, she somehow got him to sing like a canary.
He wouldn’t let it. And he would not watch the woman he loved suffer at the hands of a madman. Not again.
