Stargazer (Evernight #2) The Iron Knight (The Iron Fey #4)

Quite, he bit off, about as politely as any man could after having his manhood impugned.

Phillip took it, having already decided that Eloise’s brother would make a far finer ally than enemy. He eyed the four male Bridgertons warily, though, and his stance was defensive. He stood no chance if all four decided to charge at him at once, and he wasn’t convinced that that was not still a likely possibility.At the end of the day, he was going to find himself either dead or married, and he wasn’t quite prepared to let the Bridgerton brothers take the matter to a vote.

One Shot (Jack Reacher #9)

And then, after Anthony silenced his four younger siblings with nothing more than a stare, he turned to Phillip and said, Perhaps you should tell me what happened.Out of the corner of his eye, Phillip saw Eloise open her mouth to interrupt, then close it again, sitting down on a chair with an expression that, if it wasn’t meek, was at least meeker than anything he’d ever expected to see gracing her face.Phillip decided that he needed to learn how to glare like Anthony Bridgerton. He’d have his children in line in no time.

This Lullaby

I don’t think Eloise will be interrupting us now, Anthony said mildly. Please, go on.Phillip glanced over at Eloise. She looked about ready to explode. But still, she held her tongue, which seemed a remarkable feat indeed, for one such as her.

Phillip briefly recounted the events that had led to Eloise’s arrival at Romney Hall. He told Anthony about the letters, beginning with Eloise’s letter of condolence, and how they had begun a friendly correspondence, pausing in his story only when Colin shook his head and murmured, I always wondered what she was writing up in her room.

When Phillip looked at him quizzically, he held up his hands and added, Her fingers. They were always ink-stained, and I never knew why.No, I suppose not, but I do hope he starts looking, Janet said. I do so want him to be happy. And of course if he is to be the earl, he shall have to beget an heir. Otherwise the title shall go to that awful Debenham side of the family. Janet shuddered at the thought.

Michael will do what he must, Francesca said, although she wasn’t so sure. It was difficult to imagine him marrying. It had always been difficult-Michael wasn’t the sort to stay true to any woman for very long-but now it just seemed strange. For years, she had had John, and Michael had been their companion. Could she bear it if he married, and then she was the third wheel? Was her heart big enough to be happy for him while she was alone?She rubbed her eyes. She felt very tired, and in truth a bit weak. A good sign, she supposed; she’d heard that pregnant women were supposed to be more tired than she usually was. She looked over at Janet. I think I shall go upstairs and take a nap.

This is Not a Test

An excellent idea, Janet said approvingly. You need your rest.Francesca nodded and stood, then grabbed the arm of the chair to steady herself when she swayed. I don’t know what is wrong with me, she said, attempting a wobbly smile. I feel very unsteady. I-

Janet’s gasp cut her off.Janet? Francesca looked at her mother-in-law with concern. She’d gone quite pale, and one shaking hand rose to meet her lips.

What is it? Francesca asked, and then she realized that Janet wasn’t looking at her. She was looking at her chair.With slowly dawning horror, Francesca looked down, forcing herself to look at the seat she’d just vacated.

There, in the middle of the cushion, was a small patch of red.Life would have been easier, Michael thought wryly, if he’d been given to drink. If ever there was a time to overindulge, to drown one’s sorrows in the bottle, this was it.
