Abel (5th Street #4) A Beautiful Funeral (The Maddox Brothers #5)

Hyacinth laughed. You married into the family. You have to love me. It’s a contractual obligation.

What? I asked, my fingers tracing his jaw as I squinted, taking in his gorgeous face even more closely.How about I show you?

Panic

His hands slid down my body, and the next thing I knew, he was scooping me up in his arms. My heart skipped a beat as he lifted us up in the air. The ground disappeared beneath us as we rose higher and higher into the dark sky, so high that the island stretched out beneath us in all its glory: the swaying sea of redwood trees, the regal mountains, the sparkling lakes, the lush meadows… but I could barely take in its beauty, for I was too enchanted by Ben, a far more beautiful sight to me.As high as we were now, my heart was higher. It was up in space, turning somersaults in orbit. Closing the distance between our lips again, I whispered, I love you, Ben. To the stars and back.His right hand loosened from its spot beneath my knees, and he guided me into an upright position. My arms wrapped tightly around his neck, his own arms engulfed my waist, keeping me flush against him, like we had been while still standing on the ground. Lost in his eyes, I soon forgot that we were hovering who knew how many feet above the ground. I’d never felt safer than in Ben’s strong grasp. Never more secure. Never more at home.

Racing Savannah (Hundred Oaks #4)

I love you to the moon, he whispered back, tasting my lips. There was barely an hour that passed when I didn’t think of you… You’ll never know how hard it was to be so close to you, yet unable to touch you. To only be capable of reaching you in dreams.I closed my eyes, remembering my own pain.

His lips caressed the side of my face and then moved down to my neck before creeping up to my ear. I felt his Adam’s apple move as he gulped. And I… if I could find a way to keep this body forever… God knows, I would ask you to marry me right now.

His words left me winded. They sent my emotions into a tailspin. I barely even knew what to feel in that moment. The thought that he was proposing was a shot of ecstasy to my brain, but then a surge of fear washed over it. What does he mean, if he could find a way to keep his body forever?And it made the pain of rejection all the more cruel.

Gareth waited patiently for his father to look up. When he didn’t, he cleared his throat.Gareth felt his teeth grinding. This was his father’s routine—ignoring him for just long enough to act as a reminder that he found him beneath notice.

Hater (Hater #1)

Gareth considered saying, Sir. He considered saying, My lord. He even considered uttering the word, Father, but in the end he just slouched against the doorjamb and started to whistle.His father looked up immediately. Cease, he snapped.

Gareth quirked a brow and silenced himself.And stand up straight. Good God, the baron said testily, how many times have I told you that whistling is ill-bred?

Gareth waited a second, then asked, Am I meant to answer that, or was it a rhetorical question?His father’s skin reddened.

Gareth swallowed. He shouldn’t have said that. He’d known that his deliberately jocular tone would infuriate the baron, but sometimes it was so damned hard to keep his mouth shut. He’d spent years trying to win his father’s favor, and he’d finally given in and given up.And if he took some satisfaction in making the old man as miserable as the old man made him, well, so be it. One had to take one’s pleasures where one could.
