My snippet this week is from Scintilla, book 1 of El Corazon.
“No. I was just checking out the town and saw you.” Brandon sort of told the truth and immediately cursed himself mentally when Raul arched an eyebrow. The man was a werewolf. That meant he heard heartrates change and could sniff out changes in body chemicals when someone lied. “I mean… c-could we… are you hungry?”
Raul put his hands in his jeans pockets and stood regarding Brandon calmly. He seemed to be studying Brandon, looking for something in his face or body language maybe. It was unnerving.
“Brandon,” he corrected immediately.
Raul nodded and said, “Brandon, look I think I know what’s going on here. What you’re feeling isn’t real.”
“I—you don’t know that.”
“Yes. I do,” Raul said. His voice was firm, kind and Brandon realized he’d had this conversation before.
Raul turned as if he was going to leave, so Brandon darted forward and put one hand on Raul’s forearm.
“No. Please, listen?” Raul stopped so Brandon continued. “I’m just asking… you’re the first person in I can’t remember when who treated me like a normal guy, not a scary freak. I thought maybe you’d have time for some lunch? That’s all. I don’t know anyone else in this area, and eating every meal alone gets old.” Brandon put on his most pleading, innocent expression.
Again, Raul scrutinized him and Brandon hoped he sensed his sincerity.
“Alright. You like Mexican? Real Mexican?”

Love the way a werewolf's differing senses were brought into this.
