Vampire Dawn (Vampire for Hire #5) Dead Seth (Kiera Hudson Series Two #4)

Okay then. Shayla handed me the keycard to our room, while she entered the single one. Swiping the card against the reading device by Josh’s and my door, it clicked open. I wheeled Josh inside before closing the door behind us.

He stole a glance at Miranda to make sure she hadnt woken up before he added, "Men can be asses. Were silly and were stupid and we rarely open our eyes wide enough to see the blessings that are right in front of our faces. But I see you," he added, smiling down at his daughter. "And I see your mother, and I hope her heart is big enough to forgive me this last time. I think it is, though. Your mama has a very big heart."The baby gurgled, causing Turner to smile with delight. "I can see that you agree with me. Youre very clever for being just a day old. But then again, I dont see why I should be surprised. Your mama is very clever, too."

The Chemist

"You flatter me, puss. But for the time being, Ill let you think Im clever, too." He looked over at Miranda and whispered, "Only the two of us need to know just how stupid Ive been."The baby made another baby noise, leading Turner to believe that his daughter must be the most intelligent child in the British Isles. "Do you want to meet your mother, puss? Here, why dont we introduce the two of you." His movements were awkward, for he had never held a baby before, but somehow he managed to settle his daughter in the crook of Mirandas arm. "There you go. Mmmm, its warm there, isnt it? Id like to trade places with you. Your mama has very soft skin." He reached out and touched the babys cheek. "Not as soft as yours, however. You, little one, are quite astonishingly perfect."The baby began to fidget and after a few moments let out a lusty wail. "Oh, dear," Turner muttered, completely at a loss. He picked her up and cradled her against his shoulder, taking great care to support her head as he had seen his mother do. "There, there, now. Shhh. Be quiet now. Thats right."

Spiders Bite (Elemental Assassin #1)

His entreaties obviously werent working because she bellowed in his ear.A knock sounded on the door, and Lady Rudland looked inside. "Do you want me to take her, Turner?"

He shook his head, loath to part with his daughter.

"I think shes hungry, Turner. The wet nurse is in the next room.""No," he said pointedly, "Leticia created scandals. I am simply refusing to mourn my scandalous wife."

"Do you wish to ruin your sister?""My actions will not reflect half so badly upon her as my dear departeds would have done."

Rock Bottom (Tristan & Danika #2)

"That is neither here nor there, Turner. The fact of the matter is your wife died , and- ""I saw the body," he retorted, effectively halting her arguments.

Lady Rudland drew back. "There is no need to be vulgar about it."Turners head began to pound. "I apologize for that, then."

"I wish you would reconsider.""I would prefer that I did not cause you distress," he said with a bit of a sigh, "but I will not change my mind. You may have me here in London without an armband, or you may have me in Northumberland…also without an armband," he finished after a pause. "It is your decision."

His mothers jaw clenched, and she did not say anything, so he simply shrugged and said, "I shall find Miranda, then."* * *
Miranda had been in town for two weeks, and while she was not sure she could term herself a success, she did not think she qualified as a failure, either. She was right where shed expected herself to be- somewhere in the middle, with a dance card that was always half full and a journal that was overflowing with observations of the inane, insane, and occasionally in pain. (That would be Lord Chisselworth, who tripped on a step at the Mottram ball and sprained his ankle. Of the inane and insane, there were too many to count.)
