    Summary

    Eve hadn’t slept for twenty-eight hours, and time took on a sticky quality, drifting by before rushing over several hours in an instant. She knew, somewhere, people were celebrating for the liberation of France. She wondered if Niko was there, enjoying himself, while she struggled to make soldiers and civilians comfortable in a cold tent.

    She hoped he was, hoped he wasn’t somewhere like this. A four-hundred bed field hospital set up in the grounds of some French aristocrats house, with grass floors that had already been disturbed by the heavy steps of stretcher-bearers.

    ...

    Eve is a nurse in WW2, and Oksana is wounded on D-Day.

    Summary

    “Do you two know each other?” Elena asks, passing Eve a fresh cup of coffee. “You and the new lawyer, I mean.”

    For a second, Eve imagines telling her everything. Saying, remember that night Niko left last year, and I thought we were really done? Well, I went out, got drunk, met her, and we fuc--

    Eve can’t even make her pretend-self confess it all to Elena, not under the stark fluorescent lighting of their office. She can’t come up with a good lie, either -- a whole two seconds after seeing Villanelle again, her brain is still busy numbly cataloguing her every too-fast breath and rushed heartbeat. “Uh, I’m pretty sure we ran into each other at a conference, once?”

    “Oh.” Elena pauses. “I wish I had her jacket. Her outfit is amazing.”

    Eve’s smile would probably be a little less fake if she could entirely convince herself that she’s also thinking about Villanelle’s clothes, and not what’s underneath them.

    But she and Niko are trying, right? So she smiles harder.

    A breakup. A hookup.

    For a year, Eve does her best to forget it all.

    Then chance brings a new hire to the office, and everything gets a lot more complicated.

    Summary

    "Be honest! In your designs, in your life! Be honest with yourself! Enough bullshit."
    “I like beautiful things. I want to possess them. I want to possess you. I want to breathe in the scent of your hair while your silk drips down my hand.” Villanelle took one last step toward Eve, her hand landing on the wall beside Eve’s head. “So, how’s that for honest?” Eve swallowed harshly.
