    Because Nancy was having problems posting. I’m doing it for her.

    RIVER CITY DEAD by Nancy G. West, coming in January. Now on NetGalley. http://tinyurl.com/RiverCityDead
    “Not every city has a river running through it. And not many women plan a rendezvous at a San Antonio River Walk hotel during Fiesta Week after years of self-imposed celibacy. I was about to make history. Sam and I were meeting at Casa Prima Hotel. Hopefully our first days and nights together in River City would be more fiesta than fiasco. And we could avoid dealing with crime.”

    This line is from an essay in progress. I’m writing about the hunger that is never assuaged.

    “We had enough to eat, and yet I hungered. I starved for affection, for praise, for my mother’s attention. I grew up believing I was no different from the laundry. I was something for Mom to keep clean.”

    From HUNT THE DAWN Amazon: http://hyperurl.co/HtDAm3101716

    “I thought there was something special between us. But you were only protecting me.”

    “You think the only reason you’re here is so I can protect you?”

    She nodded, her lip pushed out in a deeper pout.

    He cupped her face in his hands and then waited for her gaze to find his. “You’re here because I need to be near you. You’re here because I couldn’t leave the diner last night without you. You’re here because I need you in my life to feel normal.”

    I need you.

    Fuck. He sounded like a toddler with separation issues, but the words had flowed out of him on a wave of swear-on-a-holy-book truth.

    “You need me?” Her gaze searched his face with all the thoroughness of a polygraph machine.

    “I do.” He couldn’t have lied to her—about this. He’d already committed the sin of lie-by-omission too many times with her.

    She reached up to him, placing her cool hand against the tattoo on his cheek. Reality shifted. Time got lazy and loitered along, and he lost himself in her eyes—in the silver flecks swirling against the midnight-blue irises, like stars forming the mythical constellations aligning to tell their story—hers and his. A story of something eternal that had no name but was vast beyond time and place and reason.
