Afterlight (Dark Ink Chronicles #1) Riding the Night (Wild Riders #5)

How did you manage? she looked genuine this time, sweet even, and I saw what Caleb saw—a good mother.

I’m going to take her to stay with me for a while at my condo.I breathe through my nose, grappling with my emotions, trying to rein back control of the situation.

Heart of the Highland Wolf (Heart of the Wolf #7)

You can’t take her from me, I say through clenched teeth.I’m not trying to. You don’t want her, Leah. I need some time to think, and it’s better if she stays with me. He rubs his forehead while I calmly panic.I want to scream — Don’t think! Don’t think!

A Court of Mist and Fury (A Court of Thorns and Roses #2)

What about work? You can’t take care of her with your work schedule.I’m trying to buy time. I messed up, but I can fix this. I can be a good mother and a good wife…

She’s more important than work. I’ll take some time off. I have a trip next week, after that, I’ll come get her.

My thoughts drag. I can’t come up with excuses for why he can’t do this to me. I can use the baby as leverage — threaten him — but that would screw me in the long run. If he wants to take some time, maybe I should let him. Maybe, I need time too.Oh, the crazy girl found a spoon. She smiled. A smile!

I made a face at her, as I sipped at my wine. Hollis gave us both a look that said he thought we were crazy, then launched into a series of questions about my work and what I’d been up to. I liked him, maybe more than I liked Amanda. He was the perfect guy—the perfect husband—and I often wondered if Amanda knew how good she had it. He’d been brought up like me, and whenever we were in the same room, one of us started cracking jokes about our Catholic childhoods.He’s miserable, I said.

Shelter Mountain (Virgin River #2)

Amanda and Hollis exchanged a look. Then Amanda said, Why would you say that?It wasn’t tell me more—why would you say that? It was why would you ever say something so terrible about our precious Jolene?

He’s told me. She’s condescending and mean—completely unsupportive. Trust me. They fight right in front of me. It’s like she’s always ready to berate him. She’s not who you think she is. I know her better than anyone.I pulled out my phone and scrolled through my videos to prove it to them.

Look, I said, holding it out so they could see. I watched their faces as I played the video of Jolene and Darius fighting. Amanda’s face was impassive, but Hollis looked away before it ended. He was uncomfortable, as he should be—imagine how I felt when they just started yelling at each other right in front of me.All couples fight, Amanda said. It doesn’t mean that they shouldn’t be together.

I heard the slight defensiveness in her voice and I wanted to roll my eyes. No one ever saw things clearly when it came to Jolene. It was becoming a real problem. I ignored the bitterness I felt, telling myself I wasn’t that type of person. I was kind, and thought the best of others. I couldn’t let the Jolene show taint the type of person I was.You’re right, I said, to Amanda. But, he’s told me how unhappy he is. I drove the point home by saying, He’s told me, in the firmest voice I could manage.
