When We Fall (When I Break #3) Dead as a Doornail (Sookie Stackhouse #5)

Read some of the book, please, Colonel Andrews, said Charlotte.

Your maid discovered an unmentionable among your things. Mrs. Wattlesbrook dangled a cell phone between her pinched fingers. Jane glared at the maid Matilda, who smiled smugly.Probably gets a bonus for getting rid of me, Jane thought. The little turd.

A Dirty Job

I believe I was very clear, Miss Erstwhile. We thank you for your stay and I regret that your actions have forced me to cut it short.You’re really going to kick me out?Yes, I really am. Mrs. Wattlesbrook folded her arms.

Leif (Existence Trilogy #2.5)

Jane bit her lip and bent her head back to look at the sky. Funny that it looked so far away. It felt as if it were pressing down on her head, shoving her into the dirt. What a mean bully of a sky;Much of the household was present now. Miss Heartwright was huddled with the main actors, whispering, like rubberneckers shocked at a roadside accident but unable to look away. A couple of gardeners strolled up as well, tools in hand. Martin wiped his brow, confusion (sadness?) heavy on his face. Jane was embarrassed to see him, remembering how she’d ended things, and feeling less than appealing at the moment. The whole scene was rather Hester Prynne, and Jane imagined herself on a scaffold with a scarlet C for cell phone on her chest.

She realized she was still holding her croquet mallet and wondered that no one felt threatened by her. She hefted it. Would it be fun to bash in a window? Nah. She handed it to Miss Charming.

Okay, Miss Charming said uncertainly.Her Inner Thoughts skipped forward, happy to be asked. Leave ’em alone and go get some punch. But stay away from Lord Bentley, ’cause he gives me the creepos.

Nothing’s real here, including him. Nice people don’t mess up someone else’s expensive romantic moment, especially since you’re clearly not ready to love Eddie for real. Get out before you make an idiot of yourself or get that heart broken again. We’re still aching from the last time, thanks very much.No, said Charlotte, surprising herself. I am ready. I’m ready to love again, and I choose him. I don’t know how, with two kids in one country and this man in another. But I can’t imagine anyone else I would want to be with besides Eddie. Is that selfish? Does that mean I’m not nice?

The Arrangement 5 (The Arrangement #5)

Yeah, said her Inner Thoughts.Well, forget you. I’m going to be the heroine in this story.

She started into the room just as the couple, apparently concluding their conservatory business, was starting out.Eddie, she said, not knowing what else to say. But she was spared the formation of words by the mercifully loquacious Miss Gardenside.

Oh, Charlotte, is it not wonderful? she effused, hurrying to Charlotte’s side.Now do not tease. Though I know you will mock me for being so blind, I am not as arch as you, my dearest, sweetest friend. You can find out a murderer, but I could not see true love when it formed before my face!

Don’t beat yourself up, said Charlotte. True love can be so easily mistaken for other things—friendship, humane concern, indigestion …Stop it, you delightful thing. Now that I look back over the past two weeks, I see the mark of it running through everything that happened. Mr. Grey’s gallantry, his constant attention, his reluctance to dance even. Why, I simply thought him uneasy, given it is our last night. But in truth he was harboring a secret all along! Do not think I mind for my own sake, my dear Charlotte. You are sly, but I understand, though I should scold you amazingly. Sometimes one does not mean to fall in love. Sometimes it just happens.
