  • Wounded(Anita Blake Vampire Hunter #24.5)(39) by Laurell Kaye Hamilton
  • “It’s me he’s mad at,” Edward said in a voice that was far more cheerful than the words warranted.

    “Why in blazes would I be mad at you?” Logan asked.

    “Because you’re jealous,” Edward said.

    “Why would I be jealous of you, Forrester?”

    “For the same reason you’re going to be jealous of Marshal Anita Blake.”

    “And why is that?”

    “Anita, look at the next picture.”

    I hesitated for a second, then thought, Why the hell do I care if some cop in Ireland doesn’t like me? I moved to the next image and it was another set of fang marks like the last ones, bigger fangs, and this time rough enough that the wounds were jagged around the edges. It made me have to swallow hard and fight off an urge to rub at the scars over my collarbone at the bend of my left arm where the same vampire had worried at me like a dog with a bone. It had almost cost me the use of my arm, but serious physical therapy and devotion to the weight room in the gym had left me better than I had been even before the injury.

    “A vampire tried to rip a little and wiggled its fangs in the flesh, deciding if it was going to try to take a bigger bite out of the neck. It looks like a man’s neck this time, or a larger woman’s.”

    “It’s a different vampire,” Logan said, his voice demanding that I believe him.

    “Maybe, but I doubt it.”
