My sister had surgery yesterday. Her husband texted out her status at 6AM EST, which, where I live, was 3AM PST. Today, my sister texted out how she was doing at 7:20 EST, which was 4:20 PST for me... thank you very much. I need my sleep!!! I'm with Eve.  :chocolate:

Need to be sensitive to those that are in the pacific time zone. With my parents living in AZ, I try to think about their time when I call them.

Am I the last one to notice (as I am not really proficient in Italian history)?

 

While looking through a 2017 calendar of landmark photos with quotes, I came across one with the following:

 

The quote said "The secret of power is the will."  by Guiseppe Mazzini  (Turns out he is a historic leader of Italian independence from the 19th century.  I looked him up.)

 

Of course this immediately reminded me of Delusions In Death with the historical Urban Wars references to Red Horse and Guiseppe Manzini.  Considering the fondness that our esteemed author has for Italy, do you think she used such a similar name accidentally?  Me either.

Just nope.  Our Nora likes similar names.

Been rereading Purity and I always had a problem with the disagreement between Eve and Roarke. Eve's upset that Roarke has no sympathy for a murder victim but why does this bother her? By this point Eve knows what Roarke did to avenge Marlena so she knows his views on the death of monsters.

 

This argument always seemed that it should have been before Eve found out about Marlena, that's all

IMO, if Eve changed her opinion on this she would have surrendered one of her core values. One of the elements that makes up her most inner self. Also, I think she was afraid if she agreed with him on this, it would lead to more and more agreements down the line. (If she agreed on this, how could she not agree on others.) It would change who she was. It would be a blow to her character. A part of her she built on when she escaped her past and entered the academy. She's based her entire career on believing in the tenets of the law. This belief pulled her out of where she came from. She succeeded (and thrived) because of her unerring belief. If she gave that up, even a tiny bit, it  may have possible dire consequences down the line to their relationship.

Can someone help me remember which book is it that Roarke finds out that Eve may not ever make Captain because she married him? And then he goes to Whitney and hands him some paperwork or something to prove he's not causing a conflict of interest or something? I can't remember the exact details of Roarke's meeting with Whitney and/or Tibble. My initial thought is Conspiracy but I'm not sure.

It was Born In Death. Roarke and Whitney had a hot little convo over the situation.  :furious:

This is a random question I'm not sure anyone can answer, it's more of an opinion thing. 

 

There have been several instances over the series of Eve and Roarke having sex during a trip in one of his planes. (The limos are another story.) The first I remember is on the return trip from their honeymoon. But, there were several afterwards. Even though Roarke has a nice veneer of polish, he was something of a man whore. I know he always "wants" Eve, and he can do as he likes on his own plane. He doesn't seem to hesitate while traveling with her. So, do you think Roarke used his planes this way with the women he dated before? He appears to slip into this mode quite easily. It just occurred to me probably he's done this in the past.

I wouldn't be surprised at all if this was a common occurrence for Roarke before Eve.  The difference now is Eve actually means a great deal to Roarke, whereas the others were the "flavour" of the day.

Given the comments by Roarke's previous lovers about how inventive and creative he is, he likes sex - alot.  I can't imagine that would have limited himself to just the bedroom before he met Eve.  So yes, I don't think sex everywhere possible is nothing new for him.
