JANOOSE & the FALL FEATHER FAIR

Margie whispered to Janoose and Mallard. “You know the painter who has been painting the factory? He is by the truck now. Is his going to paint the delivery truck, too?”

              Mallard said with a laugh, “No, he’s not,” before Mallard hurried over to the painter calling, “Oh, Mr. Painter!”

Lone Wolf Tales – A Little White Lie by Dellani


“I have included analysis of Aurialonus done by an expert in aberrant psychological conditions, with an emphasis in megalomaniacal psychosis.”

“That’s a mouthful I’d not want to repeat,” Ray quipped, winking at the Admiral.

Greyling smirked, a chuckle escaping her lips. “Well, it took a little practice to get it right.” Her demeanor changed abruptly as she went back to business. “The intel information will be available to you and your team, Colonel. I have taken the liberty of including names of possible team members broken down by specialty. I fear it’s a rather short list,” she added quietly.

Character Quotes from Lone Wolf by Dellani

lone wolf front
Beautiful New Cover by Suzette Vaughn

“I’d have been fully compliant to anything you said, even if it went against my common sense? If you said, Matilda, go jump off the cliff, I’d do it?”

Wil nodded again, terribly embarrassed to admit his intentional duplicity. He couldn’t bear to look at her, afraid he’d see disgust in her eyes.

“I thank you for refraining from doing that to me. I like to think I’d jump off the cliff of my own free will, not because you told me to.”

He chuckled softly. Not the menacing sound, but a true, mirthful rumble deep in his chest. “Woman, you are too much. If you weren’t dressed like a man, I’d kiss you.”

Character Quotes: The Great Snowball Escapade.

9780981861425-The Great SB COVER PICAs they turned the corner onto Wil’s street, they stopped. They all stared toward Wil’s house.

“Where’s the snowman?” Wil cried.

“What could have happened to it?” Joey asked.

They began to run down the block. Their snowman was scattered around the front yard. They stared at the snowy mess.

Robert threw up his hands. “He’s all smashed,” he said.

9780981861432Epub_txt_img_23Franny stamp her foot. “Bud did it,” she said.

“What do you say about Bud now, Wil?” Joey asked.

Wil frowned. “Well, maybe Bud didn’t do it,” she said.

“What? It had to be him,” Franny cried.

“You can’t mean it,” Joey added.

Wil said, “Maybe it was an accident. Or, maybe it was somebody else besides Bud.”

Now Robert, Suzie, Franny and Joey were all frowning.

Robert shook his head again. “One batch of cookies and you crumble,” he said. “Look around you, Wil!”

Character Quotes from It Takes a Thief by Dellani

it-takes-a-thief-cover“So, are you blaming the robbery on this Orchid?” The D.A. asked with a disapproving sniff.

“No, sir. I did it.”

Jason’s lawyer gasped. Shaking his head, he voiced his objections, but his heart wasn’t in it.

“I planned and completed the robbery. What I did not do,” Jason spoke directly to the judge. “I did not kill those people. My plans, my methods, they’re always clean. I don’t hurt anyone and I don’t kill. I steal, Your Honor. I’m a thief, that’s a fact I don’t deny. But I never wanted anyone hurt. Orchid took the loot, shot me and left me for dead. She shot the others, killing all of them. She set me up to take the fall.”

Character Quotes from Indian Summer by Dellani

Indian Summer“Tell me, Ana, what do you know of Señor Enriques who was here today?”

Ana hesitated to answer at first. She was always eager to impart what she knew of the local men. Be it good or bad, she held to the gossips’ truths of the town. She sighed deeply and seated herself at the table, another thing she had never done.

“Miss Gabriella, I’d not talk awful of anyone as you know.” She held up her hand. “I know I gossip, Miss, but that’s just for sport. I mean to really speak ill of someone with full knowledge and malicious intent and I just won’t do it.” She sighed again. “All I can say, Miss, is that one is better left unnoticed. Best to let sleeping dogs lie, Miss.”

Character Quotes from Conduct Unbecoming by Dellani

conduct front coverVivica burst out laughing. She shook her head, giggling. “How is it you’re not married already with a dozen kids?”

“Lucky, I reckon,” Jasper countered. “Seriously? I never found me a woman like you. Why don’t you have yourself cloned?”

“She’s all mine, Jasper.” Teague put a protective arm around Vivica’s shoulders.

Jasper’s expression turned wounded. He put a hand on his chest as if pledging loyalty. “I’m hurt, McTeague. When have I ever poached your woman?”

“Well, there was Jenny Fortenberry. . . .”

“I mean when it really meant something? Jenny was a skank. I saved you from yourself on that one.”

“Never. ‘Cause you know I’d kill ya.” Teague’s lips twitched and he smiled.

They tapped knuckles.

“I liked it better when you couldn’t back up that claim.” Jasper winked at his friend.

Character Scene from For Love of Katie B by Dellani

character-quotes-image“It has been my experience that what helps a woman relax more than anything, is to punch something. Am I right, ladies?”

We all yelled in unison. Li put his hand up to his ear.

“I’m sorry. Please repeat. My hearing is fading.”

We bellowed louder, satisfying him.

“Since we men don’t much fancy being punching bags, we shall use the standing heavy bags. Taking turns, work out in pairs. Ladies first.”

We put on our gloves and started jabbing the huge, padded, water filled contraptions. I took a few experimental hits at mine, while Li walked around, correcting. When he got back to me, he frowned.

“Widen your stance, Kate. Guard your body more. Give it hell. It can’t bleed.”

I hit it harder. He continued to frown.

“Kathleen, Brent didn’t spend a butt load of money on top of the line, professional grade heavies for you to tap it like a delicate flower. Smack the f**ker!” His fist shot out, hammering the bag so hard, it jumped slightly. The water in the bottom made the blow sound like a gong. “See that label?” He pointed to the name of the manufacturer, about head height for me. “Picture a face there. Picture the man who broke your heart and make him pay.”

I raised my hand to punch. Before I could strike, he pointed a few feet lower.

“His nuts are right there,” he said. “You have knees and feet as well as hands.”

Character Quotes from A Little White Lie

white lie coverA Little White Lie is one of 9 short stories in Lone Wolf Tales.

“So what do you want from the four of us?” Wil wanted information and now. He was a man of immediate and direct action. If there was a job, he wanted to get started on it yesterday.

“You will be going in and freeing the royal family, and putting Aurialonus to the sword,” Greyling said dramatically.

“Wait a damn second,” Wil stood, leaning over Greyling’s desk. “You want the four of us, one of whom is a semi-invalid, to take out Aurialonus and his band of merry lunatics? Those people are religious fanatics, Elise. They think that Aurialonus is a god and that he and Jesus do lunch! I like playing the odds, baby, but not that long.”
