Easy Charm (Boudreaux #2) The Summer Girls (Lowcountry Summer #1)

She picked up her phone from the table as I sat back down. After a quick swipe of her finger and a couple of taps, she put it up to her ear.

The breath I took scorched my throat. Did Abbi know I hadn’t had my phone while in the hospital? Did that matter? I hadn’t wanted to see my friends and I hadn’t even checked her messages in over a month. It didn’t even matter if she did at this point.I kept reading and I saw the texts from that Saturday night. It was just two of them. Where are you? And PLEASE TEXT ME BACK NOW.

The Umbrella Conspiracy (Resident Evil #1)

The text before that was from before I left the party. It was a selfie that she’d taken of us and sent to me. Our cheeks pressed together and both of us smiling. Over our heads, I could make out part of Keith’s face.Dumbly, I backed out of her texts and then I scrolled back up to Sebastian’s. Swallowing hard, I opened up his texts and made my way to the ones I hadn’t read. His started off just like Abbi’s.There were several more messages, and I could easily see him firing them off, one after another.

The Emerald Burrito of Oz

You didn’t leave without coming to get me?Okay. Please text me back. I’m starting to freak out. Someone said there’s a really bad accident not too far from here.

Come on. Answer your phone. Please.

My heart thumped heavily in my chest. I knew his voice mail was one of the many that sat unheard on my cell.I know exactly how long you’ve known me, Richard cut in. He didn’t need Mrs. Hopkins mentioning his time in nappies in front of Iris.

I would like to help, actually, Iris said. I am eager to meet the tenants, and I do think that the gifts would be more meaningful if I helped to pack them myself.I don’t know that we even have eighteen baskets, Mrs. Hopkins grumbled.

Vampire Mine (Love at Stake #10)

Surely they don’t need to be actual baskets, Iris said. Any sort of container would do. And I’m sure you will know the best things with which to fill them.Richard just grinned, admiring his wife’s easy handling of the housekeeper. Each day—no, each hour—he learned something new about her. And with each revelation, he realized just how lucky he was that he had chosen her. It was so strange to think that he probably would not have looked twice in her direction if he hadn’t found himself forced to find a bride so quickly.

It was difficult to recall just what he’d thought he’d wanted in a wife. A substantial dowry, of course. He’d had to give that up, but now, as he watched Iris make herself at home in Maycliffe’s kitchen, it no longer seemed so urgent. If the repairs he needed to make to the house had to wait a year or two, so be it. Iris was not the sort to complain.He thought about the women he had considered before Iris. He could not remember much about them, just that they had always seemed to be dancing or flirting or tapping his arm with a fan. They were women who demanded attention.

Whereas Iris earned it.With her fierce intelligence and her quiet, sly humor, she had a way of sneaking up on his thoughts. She surprised him at every turn.

Who would have thought that he’d like her so well?Who liked a wife? In his world, wives were tolerated, indulged, and if one was very lucky, desired. But liked?
