Josephine Angelini
“Made dinner," Helen told him in a flat voice.

"Did I do something wrong?" he asked tentatively.

"Of course not. Why would you ask that when I just cooked you dinner?"

"Because usually when a woman spends hours cooking a complicated meal and then just sits at the table with a pissed off look on her face, that means some guy somewhere did something really stupid," he said, still on edge.”
Josephine Angelini, Starcrossed

“Taking a deep breath that smelled of rain, she was poised to move when a hand clasped her elbow. Memories of another hand grabbing her sent panic shooting through her veins.

“P. 294
He said quietly, “Just whisper it.”
I’d have to answer him and if not now, eventually. The truth would
remain the truth whether I ignored it or not...
Should I surrender to whatever this future would bring? I cringed
inwardly. When had reality seemed so unreal? After several moments,
I gave up and whispered, “You’re . . . T-R-I-T-O-N,
the Triton.”
I couldn’t say anything else, it seemed irreverent. He didn’t deny it, he
didn’t laugh, or scoff or make excuses...”
CL Sherman

Helen  Bell
“Renia, tell me: does the thought of dying scare you?’
He asked softly, and with such concern in his voice, that it all welled up in her at once and caught her by surprise.
‘Yes.’ Her voice broke, and the tears came. She could not stop them. ‘Is that what I must do, to save them?”
Helen Bell, Restoring the Light: Book 2 of the Ilmaen Quartet

Helen  Bell
“I'm sorry,’ she told him finally, because there was nothing else to say. His dazed expression slowly turned to a frown, but not of anger; it was a look nearer to disappointment.
‘No, ye're not.’ Penor spoke without anger or venom, in a voice of pure reason. ‘Ye're glad it weren't Kerin. Better any of us, just so long as it’s not Kerin.”
Helen Bell, Restoring the Light: Book 2 of the Ilmaen Quartet

Helen  Bell
“Will you be bringing that outspoken maid of yours?’
‘Tela? Yes. If I come.’
‘She makes me nervous. I can’t read her.’
‘Nor can I.’
‘Well of course not, if I can’t.’
‘But I trust her.’
Cedas' turn to misstep. He had heels on, to make him as tall as her, and she was in dance slippers. It hurt.
‘Not that far,’ she reassured him.”
Helen Bell, Playing a Dark Game - Book 3 of the Ilmaen Quartet

Helen  Bell
“Darona’s face bore the pinched, taut look and shadowed eyes of someone constantly in pain, but the lack of lines suggested she was younger than Jesral had first thought; middle-aged, fifty at the very most.
‘You make an uncommonly fine looking noblewoman, for a Mhrydaineg commoner.’
‘Thank you.’ Jesral was careful to keep all tone out of her voice. Darona gave her a shrewd stare, then a slight smile.
‘Self-control. Good. You must ignore me when I offend you unintentionally. They say that pain can make one waspish, but my brothers and son tell me there’s been no change in my manner. I was acid-tongued long before this set in,’ she held up a knotted hand, ‘and taking devil’s claw root has no effect on that. Rest assured, young woman, when I intend offence people are in no doubt about it.”
Helen Bell, Playing a Dark Game - Book 3 of the Ilmaen Quartet

Helen  Bell
“Vel took both of her hands and stepped backwards on to the gangplank. ‘No!’ she squealed, pulling him back on to the quay.
‘You might fall in, going backwards.’ His grip on her hands tightened enough to hurt. ‘Ow!’
‘I’m going up.’ He glowered at her. ‘I’m going backwards. I’m going now. Are you coming, or shall I tell the others to come and wave you goodbye?’
That earned him a glower in return. ‘You're a brute. I hate you and I’m only coming to keep Ren safe from you.”
Helen Bell, Shadowless: Book 1 of the Ilmaen Quartet

J.K. Ellem
“Every future has a price.”
