Board Resolution (Knights of the Board Room #1) The Walls of Air (Darwath #2)

Well, good thing you got smashed tonight so you could figure it all out!

Too bad for him, I didn’t do well with the silent treatment. V had trained that out of me. Having a boisterous twin armed me with certain skills. And ignoring moody males was one of them.Swatting his hand, I pushed off from the black leather and landed on bare feet. The brisk concrete bit into my soles. Wrapping my arms around my shivering torso, I muttered, As if I’d accept your help. After everything you’ve done so far.

Cut & Run (Cut & Run #1)

Dropping his arm, he chuckled. So far? He leaned closer. I’ve done nothing. Not yet. Wait until you’re in my domain and behind closed doors. Then you might have something worthy of being melodramatic about.My skills at coping with the future rested on being able to ignore his threats and focus on the now. Standing tall, I said, I could ask something stupid like why are we at the airport, but I can guess why. However, you failed to think about my schedule—I don’t travel alone, Mr. Hawk. I had tickets booked for my brother, assistant, and wardrobe organiser. Not to mention the excess luggage. They’ll be expecting me. Hell, my assistant will be expecting me back at the hotel tonight. All of this—it’s a waste of time. It’s a waste because the police will be told and if you think my father won’t come for me, you’re mistaken.

Cold Fire (The Circle Opens #3)

Even as I said it doubt crept over my soul. Tex Weaver shoved me into this nightmare. Why did I think he’d come and bring me home?Jethro crossed his arms, lips in a tight smile as if I were amusing and not pointing out valid facts. There were a multitude of mistakes in that paragraph, but I’ll focus only on the relevant points. Tilting his head, he continued, Your father is fully aware of everything. Your loyalty to the man who gave you away with no fight is misplaced. His hands are tied and he damn well knows it. As for the police, they have no relevance in your future. Forget about them, your family, hope. It’s over.

His voice dropped to a growl. Do you know why it’s over? It’s over because your life is over. There’s so much you don’t know, and so much I can’t wait to tell you.

He shed his icy exterior, grabbing my hair and jerking my head back. You’ll learn about your peerage. Your rotten family tree. And you’ll pay. So shut up, give up, and appreciate my kindness thus far because I’m running low on decency, Ms. Weaver, and you won’t like me when I hit my limit.Beauty was the ultimate arsenal. Beauty was meant to deceive. It was meant to trick and beguile so their prey never saw death coming.

And to a woman who made her life creating beauty for others and never being granted the ease of naturally acquiring it, Jethro was a double threat, both to my ego and lifespan.Turning back to offer me his palm, Jethro waited for me to accept his token of help.

Ill Wind (Weather Warden #1)

I wasn’t naturally a defiant person, but there was something about him that made me become a brat. Pushing off the seat, I propelled myself awkwardly and stiffly to the open door. The moment I was in grabbing distance, Jethro snatched my wrist and jerked me from the vehicle.Of course, standing for me was already a careful affair, mixed with an unknown substance that’d hijacked my motor controls, I didn’t land on my feet.

With a cry, I tripped out of the SUV, sprawling face first on the gravel below. The car suddenly cranked into gear and drove off. Leaving me alone and bruised before a manor worth millions.What on earth? The gruff exclamation came from above—different from Jethro’s deep timbre, but powerful and full of supple authority.

Goddammit, this is getting ridiculous, Jethro muttered. Are you going to be like this all the time?His strong hands lassoed around my waist, yanking me to my feet. The moment I was vertical I blinked, trying my hardest to find an anchor and remain standing. The world steadied and I shook Jethro’s lingering hold off my hipbone. Yes, I’m ridiculous. Yes, I’ve suffered all my life. Yes, I know it’s a huge inconvenience for someone who wants to kill me that I’m already a little bit damaged, but did you stop to think—just once—that the reason I’m struggling more than normal is because of the stress you’re loading my system with?

Have you never dealt with an upset stomach or a tension headache? Waving my hand in his face, I snapped, It’s the same thing. My body doesn’t handle upsetting circumstances well. Get over it or let me the hell go!It felt wonderful to let go of the anger bubbling inside. It purged me a little, giving me room to breathe.
