From The Grey House:
A large, strong body pressed her into the wall. His free hand pulled her dress away from her shoulder and his teeth sank into her shoulder, painfully. She cried out, but the hand at her throat moved to her mouth, stifling her cries. Pain and terror filled her thoughts but dissipated somewhat when the menacing figure pulled away from her shoulder and growled into her ear.
“Do you see how easy it would be for us to steal your life and change it or end it at our discretion?” His hand moved back to her throat.
