All Played Out (Rusk University #3) Sweet Soul (Sweet Home #4)

Doc Jane, as Ivie had come to know the Brotherhoods special physician, had been astounded. She evidently had come out of the human tradition and had indicated the transformation was unprecedented in her experience.

Her lips pucker like her drinks gone sour. Youll be in the dining room, dressed and ready to have breakfast with Princess Alpacca, at six a.m. sharp, is that clear? Ive whipped more difficult talent than you into shape, Your Highness. If you know whats good for you, youll remember that.My shoulders straighten, and my voice drops low, and without even trying . . . I sound just like my father. Im not talent, Vanessa—and I dont respond well to orders. For the sake of your show, you really ought to try remembering that.

Release Me (Stark Trilogy #1)

IM A COWARD. This shouldnt come as a surprise, but it does.Im a fool. Thats new. And bothersome.By the evening —or morning, I guess would be more accurate—I lie in bed, staring at the ceiling, and come to grips with these cold, hard truths. Henry broke my book and thats upsetting, but thats not why Ive kicked him out and refused to see him. Its not why Ive rejected his apology.

Dark Hunger (Dark #14)

Its because of the kiss. I keep thinking about it, no matter how desperately I try to forget—my lips still tingle with the remembered caress of his mouth. It was more lovely than Id imagined or hoped it could be. My stomach spun and my head went light, and my heart thudded fast and thrilled like I was going to die—while feeling the most alive Id ever felt.Because I wanted him to kiss me. I wanted to kiss him back. And I didnt want to stop at just a kiss. I wanted to push myself against him and feel the bulging strength of him everywhere. His stunning arms surrounding me, his large hands touching me. I wanted to know the hard press of his chest against my breasts, the taut, flat plane of his stomach, the bite of his hips against mine as he covered me on the bed.

I want to know the flavor of his skin, the scratch of his stubble, the taste of his mouth.

Hes not what I envisioned for myself—I was truthful about that part. Henry is wild and careless, but thats not all he is. Hes also gentle and kind and patient and giving and intelligent and clever . . . and wonderful. I left those parts out.What does that mean?

I havent lied, Beth rushed to add. I couldnt even if I tried. Mom would see through that in a heartbeat. I havent been telling her the full truth is all. She might … you know … assume things.The way her sister had kept Beth under her thumb was just plain wrong as far as Sunshine was concerned. Her niece was an adult and her sister insisted on treating her daughter as a child. Little had pleased Sunshine more than the day Beth announced she was moving to Portland. The fact that Beth had chosen to live in the same city as Sunshine had rubbed salt in Ellies wounded pride.

Midnight Blues (Darkyn #7)

Beth was smart. Smarter than Ellie gave her credit for. Sunshine loved her niece and they were tight, but Beth chose to live in Portland because she knew her mother wouldnt be inclined to visit often, for obvious reasons.What assumptions has your mother made? Sunshine asked.

You know … that the accident wasnt nearly as bad as it was, Beth reminded her, and bit down on her lower lip.I did tell her it would be a while before I returned to work and I might have let her assume all I needed was a few days to rest up.

They both knew it would be weeks before Beth returned to teaching, possibly even months. Beth was in for a long haul of physical therapy due to the rod in her hip. Shed been up and walking, but it was difficult and painful for her. The doctor had scheduled her for intensive physical therapy until shed gotten the blood clot in her lung. Now her rehabilitation had come to a standstill.Do you still call your mother every day? Sunshine asked. That was one of the stipulations Ellie had made when Beth chose to leave Chicago.

I did in the beginning, Beth admitted. Now its every other day. Im weaning myself away from her.Good for you. Sunshine was happy to see her niece make the break. It was long overdue.
