I’m starting a new Friday feature that I am blatantly stealing, but it is too fun an idea to pass up! I’m calling it “Urban Fantasy Department 256,” and, no, it has nothing to do with cute-albeit-pricey figurines that one can build into an urban fantasy village. Although that kinda sounds fun, too.
No, “Urban Fantasy Department 256” is where we take a book we’re currently reading or recently finished–even if it isn’t urban fantasy–and look on page 256 (if you’re reading something shorter use page 56 or 156). Then share the fifth and sixth complete sentences. You can add a little context if you want.
Want to play? Post your sentences, and I’ll enter you into a drawing for a wide-open Reader’s Choice giveaway. Yep, anything you want. Read more below.

From page 256 of Lydia Dare’s It Happened One Bite, a cool new historical paranormal romance being released March 1 that I’ll be featuring on the blog in early March with a giveaway. The heroine, a Scottish witch named Blaire, is speaking to Lord Kettering, a cursed vampire:
