The Only Problem Was That This Linen Was Oddly Warm. Body Warm. Beneath The Tentative Pressure Of Her Palm, It Seemed To Be Moving...With Terrifying Suddenness, An Ungloved Hand Clamped Roughly Over Her Nose And Mouth. A Long Arm Pinned Her Arms Against Her Sides. She Was Held Tightly Against A Hard, Warm Surface."Hush," Whispered A Pair Of Lips Pressed To Her Left Ear. "If You Scream, We Are Both Lost.]
