Hope Restrained Excerpts:
He smiled, his voice booming when he responded, "You’re an assassin. That much is obvious!" Reaching up, he rubbed at his jaw where she'd hit him. "No woman hits like that and hasn't been trained."
A humorless laugh broke free of her throat. "Growing up in the shadow of The Estate is enough incentive for all women to be trained. Do you think nobody knows what goes on here? We notice the disappearance of our families, our friends. We can smell the bodies as they're burned."
He smiled. "You've done your homework. Congratulations.” Mockery weighed down his last word. He paused, his eyes twinkling as they moved over her. The timbre of his voice deepened when he calmly stated, “I can promise you, I will discover who you are, and while I'm at it, I'll also discover who the fuck sent you. If you make my life easier by giving up the information now, I'll make sure you are no longer breathing when you become one of those burning bodies."
She was amused by his threat. "You can set me on fire right here, big guy, and end this bullshit game right now." She winked. "I'll never tell you a fucking thing."
