Sentence Sneak Peek - The Vampire's Accidental Wife

The Vampire’s Accidental Wife by Kristen Painter

The first sentence from each chapter of The Vampire’s Accidental Wife, it's a mini summary of what you can expect to read.

* Spoilers are highlighted like so :)

“For the briefest of moments, Julian Ellingham awoke thinking tonight was going to be just like every other night of his life.”

“My darling Desi, we had quite an evening.”

“Julian stared out the windows of his penthouse in the Excelsior.”

“Desi knew she should be dreaming by now.”

“While Desi packed, Julian stood on the balcony and stared down at the city below.”

“With her elbows propped on her knees, Desdemona let out an exhausted sigh and rested her head in her hands.”

“Desi had imagined Julian’s home would have one of two styles.”

“Maybe the women were extra clingy this evening, but Julian felt like he hadn’t had three minutes without one wrapped around him, holding out her phone for her friends to take a picture.”

“The Ryde driver glanced back at Desdemona.”

“Quarter after midnight.”

“Desi sat cross-legged on her bed, wearing a pair of leggings and an oversized tee she usually reserved for spa days.”

“Next on Julian’s to-do list was an unannounced visit to his grandmother.”

“Desdemona blinked up at the ceiling.”

“Julian had heard and understood what she’d said, but it took a moment for the words to register.”

“Julian didn’t expect her to answer instantly with a yes, but he also hadn’t expected her to sit there looking at him like he’d suddenly developed a gaping head wound.”

“Anything important?”

“The delicious aroma of coffee awakened Desi.”

“Desi watched with great interest as two very handsome men and two very beautiful women (one with a baby on her hip) streamed into the room.”

“That was… very you.”

“Desi paced the expanse of Julian’s living room while he looked at the list of names she’d forwarded to him.”

“Julian squinted at her.”

“The dreams that woke Desi were uncommon.”

“Of course,” Julian said.”

“The pancakes were everything Julian had promised, but they still weren’t quite enough to take Desi’s mind off a few things.”

“On a whim, Julian drove to Pandora’s office.”

“Julian knocked three times on the door of the Pinehurst Inn’s number five room.”

“The itch burning up the back of Julian’s neck and the cotton filling his head told him all he needed to know.”

“The lake proved a dead end.”

“Birdie parked in the alley behind the pharmacy, making the whole thing feel like some super clandestine affair, which maybe it sort of was, considering they were here for a drug with such a shady reputation.

“That way.”

“Watching Julian go after the hunter helped take Desi’s mind off the pain of having a crossbow bolt sticking out of her shoulder.”

“Hospital chairs weren’t the most comfortable things in the world, but sitting in one as Julian had been for the last few hours was still far better than the sheet of plywood he’d been strapped to.”

“After being released from the hospital the following morning, Desi had expected a leisurely day at home with her husband.”

“Julian stood between his brothers, watching Alice with great curiosity.”

“Do you, Julian Fitzwalter Ellingham, take this woman again to be your lawfully wedded wife?”
