Dead and Loving It (Wyndham Werewolf #5) Cement Heart (Viper's Heart #1)

I heard the shower in the adjoining bathroom, and I rolled over to see if I had a view of him through the open door. I did.

Did you drop a piece of your jewelry?What? his attention had shifted so suddenly, I felt offended.

After the Rain (Rain #1.5)

There’s something down there at the bottom of the pool. He was pointing to a spot between our feet. I narrowed my eyes trying to see what he was staring at.I’m not wearing any jewelry, I said impatiently, it’s probably just a penny or something.I nudged it with my toe. It was bigger than a penny. Before he could say anything else, I ducked my head under the water to retrieve it. When my head broke the surface of the water, Caleb automatically scooted closer.

Dragon Tears

What is it? he was staring at my clenched fist.Let’s see, I said theatrically, pulling my fingers slowly away from my palm. It was not jewelry. It was an old penny, flattened, and stamped with a message that entitled its bearer one free shot of affection, a kiss.

Before I realized what I was doing, I dropped the souvenir into his palm.

You’re full of tricks tonight aren’t you?I…see. Daphne made a valiant attempt to hide her disappointment. She was silent for a full minute as the carriage lurched into motion, the well-sprung wheels unable to disguise the bumps from the uneven cobbles beneath them.

No, you're right. We will rest the night at an inn. I know of a good one halfway down to the coast. The Hare and Hounds. The food is hot, and the beds are clean. He touched her on the chin. I shan't abuse you by forcing you to make the entire trip to Clyvedon in one day.It's not that I'm not hardy enough for the trip, she said, her face coloring even further as she considered her next words. It's just that we did get married today, and if we don't stop at an inn, we'll be here in the carriage when night falls, and—

Say no more, he said, placing a finger to her lips.Daphne nodded gratefully. She didn't really wish to discuss their wedding night like this. Besides, it seemed the sort of topic that the husband ought to bring up, not the wife. After all, Simon was certainly the more knowledgeable of the two on that subject.

He couldn't possibly be any less knowledgeable, she thought with a disgruntled grimace. Her mother, despite all her hemming and hawing, had managed to tell her absolutely nothing. Well, except for the bit about the creation of children, not that Daphne understood any of the particulars. But on the other hand, maybe—Daphne's breath caught in her throat.
