Entice Me at Twilight (Doomsday Brethren #4) Black City (Black City #1)

You’ve got enough people working on it, that’s for sure. It looked like a parking lot out there today. What did you have? Fifty people total?

I’m sure, I said. He can’t serve it all himself.I thought that was the best way to do it, considering the size of the kitchen at Noah’s.

Me too, she agreed. How about tables and linens? Will he bring all that?I assume so. To be honest, I didn’t ask, but I don’t think it’s that big of a deal even if he doesn’t. We can probably rent what we need if we have to.She nodded quickly. Making plans, updating her list. Okay, she said, but before she could speak again, I held up my hands.

Don’t worry. I’ll call him first thing in the morning to make sure everything is just the way it should be. Then, with a wink, I added, Trust me.She recognized my words from the day before at Noah’s house, and she smiled up at me almost coyly. I expected the moment to pass quickly, but it didn’t. Instead, we gazed at each other until—almost hesitantly—she leaned toward me and kissed me on the cheek.

Thank you for finding the caterer, she said.

Four weeks after my proposal to Jane, we were married; five days after we were married, when I came in from work, Jane was waiting for me in the living room of the small apartment we’d rented.Oh yeah, you’ve made that clear.

So I put it out there. Are we a secret? Or am I your dirty secret?Killian stepped toward me, anger flushing his face, and I silently triumphed at the show of emotion. And what the hell does that mean? he repeated, his voice thick with displeasure.

Well, I’ve never been to your apartment, we always do it at mine, and then there’s the fact that you treat me with cold disinterest anytime we set foot in this place.Looking baffled and increasingly annoyed, Killian ran a hand through his hair. First, I haven’t not invited you to my flat out of some arsehole reason to keep you out of my life. Your flat is a two-minute drive from the label and it makes more sense for me to come to you straight from the office. And second . . . He took another step toward me. We agreed that this was how it would be while we here at the label so as not to draw suspicion. I’m treating you the same way I’d treat any of my artists.
