Midnight Moon (Nightcreature #5) Savage Urges (The Phoenix Pack #5)

I didn’t flee, she shot back. I was abducted! Or didn’t you notice that I am tied to the water closet?

It is common knowledge that I increased her dowry last year, Anthony said, his face growing more serious. I will stand by that, although I would hope that it is not your primary reason for marrying her.Of course not, Gareth replied, bristling.

Shock

I didn’t think so, Anthony said, but one has to ask.I would hardly think a man would admit it to you if it were, Gareth said.Anthony looked up sharply. I would like to think I can read a man’s face well enough to know if he is lying.

Dark Desires After Dusk (Immortals After Dark #6)

Of course, Gareth said, sitting back down.But it didn’t appear that the viscount had taken offense. Now then, he said, her portion stands at…

Gareth watched with a touch of confusion as Anthony just shook his head and allowed his words to trail off. My lord? he murmured.

My apologies, Anthony said, snapping back to attention. I’m a bit unlike myself just now, I must assure you.Devil take it, they were nearly in the City. What in Gods name was Penelope planning to do in the City?

It was no place for a woman. Hell, he hardly ever went there himself. The world of the ton was farther west, in the hallowed buildings of St. Jamess and Mayfair. Not here in the City, with its narrow, twisting, medieval roads and rather dangerous proximity to the tenements of the East End.Colins jaw dropped progressively lower as they rolled on ... and on ... and on ... until he realized they were turning down Shoe Lane. He craned his head out the window. Hed only been here once before, at the age of nine when his tutor had dragged him and Benedict off to show them where the Great Fire of London had started in 1666. Colin remembered feeling vaguely disappointed when hed learned that the culprit was a mere baker whod not dampened the ashes in his oven properly. A fire like that should have had arson or intrigue in its origin.

Island of Legends (Unwanteds #4)

A fire like that was nothing compared to the feelings coming to a boil in his chest. Penelope had better have a damned good reason for coming out here by herself. She shouldnt be going anywhere unaccompanied, much less the City.Then, just when Colin was convinced that Penelope was going to travel all the way to the Dover coast, the carriages crossed Fleet Street and ground to a halt. Colin held still, waiting to see what Penelope was up to even though every fiber of his being was screaming to leap out of the carriage and tackle her right there on the pavement.

Call it intuition, call it madness, but somehow he knew that if he accosted Penelope right away, he would never learn of her true purpose here near Fleet Street.Once she was far enough away so that he could alightunnoticed, he jumped down from the carriage and followed her south toward some church that looked decidedly like a wedding cake.wFor Gods sake," Colin muttered, completely unaware of blasphemy or puns, "now is not the time to find religion, Penelope."

She disappeared into the church, and his legs ate up the pavement after her, slowing only when he reached the front door. He didnt want to surprise her too quickly. Not before he found out what exactly she was doing there. His earlier words notwithstanding, he did not for one moment think that Penelope had suddenly developed a desire to extend her churchgoing habits to midweek visits.He slipped quietly into the church, keeping his footsteps as soft as he could. Penelope was walking down the center aisle, her left hand tapping along each pew, almost as if she were...

Colin frowned as she picked her pew, then scooted in until she was in the middle. She sat utterly still for a moment, then reached into her reticule and pulled out an envelope. Her head moved the teeniest bit to the left, then to the right, and Colin could easily picture her face, her dark eyes darting in either direction as she checked the room for other people. He was safe from her gaze at the back, so far in the shadows that he was practically pressed up against the wall. And besides, she seemed intent upon remaining still and quiet in her movements; she certainly hadnt moved her head far enough to see him behind her.Bibles and prayer books were tucked in little pockets on the backs of the pews, and Colin watched as Penelope surreptitiously slid the envelope behind one. Then she stood and edged her way out toward the center aisle.
