From Protector of the Grey House:
Natalia stood silently and stared into her lover’s eyes. She wanted nothing but him. She heard the conversation between Vincent and Mierka but didn’t comprehend. All she understood was that he wanted her, and four people kept her from him. She tried to step forward but was once again stopped. She felt a hand at her lower back, which held her in place by a handful of her cotton dress.
Vincent closed his eyes as he took a deep breath and inadvertently inhaled the human’s scent. He opened his eyes and revealed to Natalia the depth of his desire. He heard her sign in response, and grinned. “Ask her what she wants.”
