The Gentleman Mentor (Lessons with the Dom #1) Hounded (The Iron Druid Chronicles #1)

I think we’re telling her a little much now. Half of this stuff is among the things we learned from Harold just last year, Jude growls.

Working with red faces and swollen eyes, Mary and Anne were collecting the shattered glass from the doors to my balcony. I watched as Mary had to stop midsweep to exhale and calm herself. In a corner, Lucy was weeping into Aspen’s chest.Shh, he said, comforting her. They’ll find her, I know it.

Everfound (Skinjacker #3)

I was so relieved, I burst into tears. You’re okay. You’re all okay.Aspen let out a huge sigh, his tight shoulders slumping as they relaxed.My lady? Lucy said. A second later she was running for me. Not too far behind, Mary and Anne came, enveloping me in hugs.

Neverfall (Everneath #1.5)

Oh, this isn’t proper, Anne said as she held me.For goodness’ sake, give it a rest, Mary retorted.

And we were so happy to be alive and safe that we laughed about it all.

Behind them, Aspen stood, watching with a quiet smile, so clearly grateful to see me there.Please stop crying, I whispered.

I can’t! Not when I’m about to lose you forever. She buried her head in her hands, sobbing quietly.I stood there, stone-like, terrified I would make this worse. After a few tense moments, she raised her head. She spoke, staring at nothing.

Running from the Past

You’re the only person who really knows me. The only person I feel I truly know myself.Knowledge isn’t love, I contradicted.

That’s not true, Maxon. We have a history together, and it’s about to be broken. All for the sake of tradition. She kept her eyes focused on some invisible space in the center of the room, and I couldn’t guess what she was thinking now. Clearly, I was oblivious to her thoughts in general.Finally Daphne turned her face to me. Maxon, I beg of you, ask your father. Even if he says no, at least I’ll have done everything I could.

Positive that I already knew this to be true, I told her what I must. You already have, Daphne. This is it. I held out my arms for a moment and let them drop. This is all it could ever be.She held my gaze for a long time, knowing as I did that asking my father for such an outrageous request was beyond anything I could truly get away with. I saw her search her mind for an alternative path, but she quickly saw there wasn’t one. She was a servant to her crown, I was a servant to mine, and our masters would never cross.

As she nodded, her face crumpled into tears again. She wandered over to a couch and sat down, holding herself. I stayed still, hoping to not cause her any more grief. I longed to make her laugh, but there wasn’t anything funny about this. I hadn’t known I was capable of breaking a heart.I certainly didn’t like it.
