Plum says: I enjoyed Cate's story. Vulnerability is rarely spoken about regarding vampires. And Dinner won't cook itself, is so true.
Sheilagh Lee | @SweetSheil
Plum says: Sheilagh did great taking a bitter pill and discovering the other woman was perfect for him, and finally realizing her true love was sitting beside her always.
Silver James | @SilverJames_
Plum says: I loved Silvers way thru the problem to a solution. Her line about too much like kicking a puppy.

Plum says: PT did awesome the story felt complete, and yet it made me want to read more. Loved the line poor information is no excuse.
“I don’t have it.”
Avarice was replaced by fury. “Failure is not an option.”
His guards started forward, drawing their weapons.
“I haven’t failed. I just haven’t succeeded yet.” I ignored his guards and turned my attention to Livaren, my chief rival. “It was not where I was told it would be. Maybe if I’d had better information about the gem’s whereabouts you would have your precious bauble.”
“I…” Livaren sputtered, not knowing what to say.
“Poor information is no excuse. You were not to return without the Elin Stone.”
I turned my gaze back to Semer. “The word on the streets is that it is no longer in the Tarums’ mansion. Apparently someone else got it first. Someone who knew where it was. Someone,” I paused, looking back at Livaren, “who perhaps wants it for himself.”
I reached into Livaren’s coat pocket and drew forth the gem I’d been sent to steal: the Jewel of Elin, the largest green diamond ever found, said to be possessed of great power, and great evil.
“I… I didn’t… I don’t know how that got there!” Livaren was sweating, pleading for his life as Semer’s guards advanced on him.
I smiled and turned away as my rival’s blood spilled onto the floor.
He didn’t know how the gem got into his pocket, but I did.
After all, I didn’t say, “I didn’t get it.” I said, “I didn’t have it.”
