My Lady Quicksilver (London Steampunk #3) Chasing Christmas Eve (Heartbreaker Bay #4)

It still made me emotional that she flew all the way over to see me perform in an amateur production.

Forty minutes later, I wind up Wild Rose Road, looking forward to taking a walk and lying on the grass down by the stream, but something looks different.I can’t make it out until I pass the Maddocks’, but as I get closer I see that there’s a new picket fence around our front yard. I love picket fences, but who put it up? Surely Patience and Hester don’t have time for such fancies.

The Eldritch Conspiracy (Blood Singer #5)

Jumping out to inspect, I find that each picket is handmade, painted white, and not only that, on the pointed end of each staff, someone has carved a delicate daisy. Our house is encircled with flowers!There’s only one person who could do this and I run inside, prepared to thank him, but the parlor is empty, the bedrooms are too. Isaac! I call. No answer. Just to be sure I poke my head in the kitchen and am shocked to find a mason jar filled with lilacs on the table. It just about floors me and I plunk down in one of the wooden chairs to take it all in.What’s gotten into the man? You’d swear we were courting. It’s then I notice a child’s sketchbook. Confessions of a Silent Man it says on the cover in Blum’s neat print. Has the doctor been keeping a journal too? Did he leave it here for me? It seems obviously a gift, along with the flowers and the beautiful fence, but what if I’m wrong? What if he left it on the table by mistake? If it’s not meant for me and I read it, I’d be as rotten as he was. . . . I lift up the cover and glance at the first lines.

The Dark at the End

Syndactyly! The word erupts out of my mind like hot lava out of a volcano. Syndactyly is the medical term for webbed toes. I would tell Becky, but then she would realize I’ve been reading her journal.All afternoon I hold back and then about four I open the doctor’s journal and begin to read. By eight o’clock, it’s too dark to see and I wonder vaguely what’s happened to Isaac. Probably off with Daniel helping with lambing; it’s a busy time of year. I get up to light the kerosene lamp and start a fire in the cookstove. I have no intention of cooking, but the house is getting a little cold. So far, I’ve read up to: I miss Becky. She has cut me off, called me a dickhead and a bastard!

I take a big breath and tighten my mouth, remembering when I said those words. I really should stop reading, not because I’m doing something wrong. I’m sure now that Isaac wanted me to read his journal, but I fear hearing his thoughts will have unintended consequences. The words are drawing me in, drawing me closer to a man I never really knew. Still I go on, wanting to hear what he will say next.

Outside the night grows dark and the spring frogs sing. Where could Isaac be? For so long I resented his presence, even tried to think how I could get rid of him. What if he just packed his stuff and hit the road, and the sketchbook is his parting gift?He shook his head sharply. I’m not a fighter.

You should be. You’re really strong.I am just used to manual labor. That is where it comes from. He paused. You’re in the program?

Hard Mated (Shifters Unbound #3.5)

Oh, yeah. And I like it. I like to win and I like to inflict pain on others. Particularly slayers. As his eyes popped, she rolled her eyes. Yes, females can be like that. We don’t need permission to be aggressive or strong. Or to kill.When he turned away, re-gripped the chin-up bar, and resumed his workout, she cursed at herself.

Sorry, she muttered. That wasn’t directed at you.Is there someone else here? he said between reps.

No. She got to her feet and gave her head a shake. Like I said, sorry.It’s okay. Up. And down. But… Up. And down. …why aren’t you… Up. And down. …with them?

The other trainees? She looked at the clock on the wall. They’re happy to chill before the bus comes. I hate loitering around. Time to go, actually. See ya.She was just at the door when he spoke up. You shouldn’t do that.
