From Protector of the Grey House:
It had been a successful hunt. The group of rebellious young vampires were dealt with easily. That was to be expected with himself, Joseph, Ben, Anthony, Rowland, Maxine and Julianna fighting for Lorraine. All were old vampires and skilled in several weapon forms. The young ones were dispatched in minutes. Now they were on their way back to Lorraine’s palatial estate where they would feast and spend much time in bed. Or at least he and Lorraine would. The others would have to fend for themselves. The prospect of entwining himself in Lorraine’s arms didn’t help quiet the worry he had felt since waking.
His eyes wandered out the window, back inside, skidding across the other men in the car until he reached Joseph, who held his gaze, seemingly to read Vincent’s thoughts. Vincent scowled, fighting the urge to check his cell again. He and his people had arrived two days ago, and Rebecca called the first afternoon to inform him Natalia’s meetings went well, and no one was hurt. She called again yesterday afternoon to ensure him all was still well. He didn’t expect another call until this afternoon, when Rebecca would report again. He was not in the habit of calling his home when he was away to check up: it showed distrust. Although at times he didn’t trust all the men he sheltered in his house, he did trust Mierka, Rebecca, Angie and Natalia. He knew they would call if they needed help.
Nevertheless, the disquieting feeling was almost overpowering.
