The Perfect Game (The Perfect Game #1) Pennies (Dollar #1)

But it didn’t. Not with Marcus’s hand at her back. In his arms she felt safe, even as her own body whipped itself up into a frenzy. The heat from his skin seeped through her clothing like nourishment, a heady brew that made her want to rise to her tiptoes and then take off in flight.

We’ll put Lady Frances on her mother’s lap on the way home to make room for Miss Wynter, Hugh said.Never mind, Hugh did notice everything.

Grave Secret (Harper Connelly #4)

Let’s go, Marcus said. The ladies were already in the carriage, and Marcus had one foot on the step.It was a strange band of rescuers, but as the coach sped away, four armed footmen serving as outriders, Daniel could not help but think that his was a most marvelous family. The only thing that could make it better would be Anne, by his side, and with his name.He could only pray that they reached Hampstead in time.

Glass Houses (The Morganville Vampires #1)

Anne had, in her life, known moments of terror. When she’d stabbed George and realized what she’d done—that had been paralyzing. When Daniel’s curricle had run wild and she’d felt herself sailing through the air after being thrown from the vehicle—that, too, had been terrifying. But nothing— nothing—had ever or would ever compare to the moment when, realizing that the horses puling George Chervil’s carriage had slowed to a walk, she had leaned down to Frances and whispered,Run home. And then, before she had had a chance to second-guess herself, she’d wrenched open the carriage door and pushed Frances out, yeling for her to curl up in a ball when she hit the ground.

She had only a second to make sure that Frances scrambled to her feet before George yanked her back into the carriage and slapped her across her face.

Do not think you can cross me, he hissed.It depends on the daisy, I think.

At that, she gave him a look of the utmost disbelief, the expression so familiar it was almost comical. How many years had she now been rolling her eyes at him? Fourteen? Fifteen? It hadn’t really occurred to him until this moment, but she was almost certainly the only woman of his acquaintance who spoke frankly with him, healthy doses of sarcasm included.This was why he hated going down to London for the season. The women simpered and preened and told him what they thought he wanted to hear.

Incubus Dreams (Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter #12)

The irony was, they were almost always wrong. He’d never wanted to be surrounded by sycophants. He hated having his every word hung upon. He didn’t want his perfectly ordinary, identical-to-everyone-else’s waistcoat being complimented upon for its remarkable cut and fit.With Daniel gone, there was no one left who truly knew him. No family unless one was willing to go back four generations to find a common ancestor. He was the only child of an only child. The Holroyds were not known for their procreative prowess.

He leaned against a nearby tree and watched Honoria, looking all tired and miserable on the ground. The party was not the success you envisioned, then?She glanced up, her eyes questioning.

You made it sound so appealing in your letter, he remarked.Well, I knew you would hate it.

I might have found it amusing, he said, even though they both knew that wasn’t true.She gave him another one of those looks. It would have been four unmarried young ladies, four young gentlemen from the university, Mr. and Mrs. Royle, and you. And while she waited for that to sink in she added, And possibly a dog.
