Just a wild shot:

His hand jerked at a soft, cool kiss, but it was only a few last shredded leaves and flower petals sifting gently down out of the air to settle all around them.

XXX said in a muffled voice, "YYY, will you please get off my ZZZ?
There was a brief pause. Then YYY rolled away and, cautiously, sat up, head hunched into collar. "Sorry," said YYY gruffly. "Thought for a moment there I was about to lose you. Again."
"Don't apologize." XXX, his heart still racing and his mouth very dry, pushed up and sat, his back pressed to a now-shorter marble drum.

Book?
XXX?
YYY?

" (...) A proper XXX contest should have at least three sides anyway, it's traditional."


(...) means that the speaker says something before the quote. No dots in the text.

Book ?
XXX ?
Who is talking ?
To whom ?

Not at all. Seriously, I don't see why you would think such a thing.

None of the above is correct.

Still, there is some amount of truth for XXX, but no; it is not the answer I am waiting for.

A longer quote ?

"A rude oversight on somebody's part. Hm. Tell you what--go change your clothes. You can be my team. YYY can root for his own today. A proper XXX contest should have at least three sides anyway, it's traditional."


Book ?
YYY ? (a character)
XXX ? (an adjective)
Who is talking ?
To whom ?

If you answer by memory, any unanmbiguous designation of YYY will do, no need to give exactly what appears in the quote.

Bonus: for 1/2 point, whom does the speaker have in mind when mentioning "somebody" ?

XXX ? Barrayaran
Who is talking ? Cordelia
To whom ? Droushnikova

Bonus: for 1/2 point, whom does the speaker have in mind when mentioning "somebody" ? Count Piotr

Correct. The next quote and already a sherlock

Well, I was thinking of Koudelka, but you are right Piotr was also a good answer.

So 1 and 1/2 :sherlock:

"So I understood. He has twice requested an audience with me. I have not yet granted his request. He seems...persistent."

Book?
Speaker?
Who are they speaking to?
Who is "he"?
