Deity (Covenant #3) Ungodly (Goddess War #3)
His shoulders sagged, as if this was the last thing he wanted to hear. I was afraid of that.
I study Zeke through the glass, gaze roaming up and down his body, ogling. Really Anabelle, in front of your father?Piss-poor attitude—pardon my French.
Tall, Dark & Lonely (Pyte/Sentinel #1)
He doesnt look all that terrible.Dad hmphs. Looks can be deceiving, and I suspect his girlfriend has a lot to do with it.I watch as Zeke sits on the bench, back to us, lacing up a pair of black wrestling shoes and sliding a tank top over his head. Such a pity, covering his broad back.
Tall, Tatted and Tempting (The Reed Brothers #1)
Once, at the Big Brothers fundraiser. Im guessing by now, that blonde has him wrapped around her little finger.Guys like that always go for the blondes.
Tiny slip of a thing, not much to her. Has a stutter.
Say what? A stutter?Dare, said the mad scientist. Its okay.
Maybe, he agreed, without agreeing at all. Why are you here?We have to do this on the lawn? asked Leslie, not losing her smile.
The Marriage Merger (Marriage to a Billionaire #4)
Dare, said Alex gently. What are they going to do? Shoot me? Lets go in and have some coffee and talk. He looked at Leslie. I have a stalker, a former student. She quite often calls in complaints and we have police officers come to investigate strange noises, screaming, shots fired. You name it. The Tempe PD knows her, but occasionally she gets one through to a rookie. The fire department was here last week at two in the morning because she reported a fire. I guess she got tired of not getting a response.We are definitely not here because someone called in a complaint, Leslie said. Wed like to interview you about an attempted kidnapping—yours—that happened in June of 1978.
Both mens faces went blank with surprise.Darin recovered first. You never told me you were kidnapped. Freaking damn it, Alex. Youd have been six in 78. June. Youd have been five.
Attempted. Dr. Vaughn sounded shell-shocked. I dont think the police even believed me. My dad installed a security system and my mom fed the dog steak every day for a week.No one believed in fairies back then, Anna said. Were all clapping our hands for Tinker Bell now, though. We have a missing child who lives four blocks from where you grew up. Would you mind talking to us about what happened?
Sure, he said. I guess. I was five, though. And its been a long time.How about I go next door and see if your mom is home, said Darin. That woman has a mind like a steel trap. Shell remember what you told her when it happened.
