My snippet this week is from Electric Candle, book 2 of
The Sleepless City (series cowritten with Anne Barwell).
Lucas erupted in a way Forge rarely saw. Pointing at Forge and Blair, Lucas shouted at his sister. “Do you know who the hell this man is? He’s a detective. He’s trying to find out who murdered people, including a man from our pack. Forge doesn’t give a rat’s ass who the victim is, he works for them all, human, vampire, and werewolf. And this guy,” Lucas’s voice deepened to a growl and he got louder while he pointed at Blair, “Has never hurt a soul. He needs help, and this is the only place I can take him. I sure as hell can’t take him to a hospital.”
“Lucas, they’re vampires!”
“Look at him, Anita. He’s my age. He could be me.”
Picking Blair up, Forge turned to Anita. “Please.”
“I’m a werewolf,” Anita snapped at Lucas.
Lucas snapped back. “You’re a doctor! We stood side by side and took that oath. I don’t remember any mention of denying care for vampires.”
Anita’s gaze flicked to Blair, sweeping over him. Holding one arm out, motioning to the door on the other side of the stone archway, she sighed, nodded, and said, “Bring him this way.”
