Skipping Christmas Submit to Desire (The Original Sinners #0.7)

The knock sounded at my door. I got up. Stopped to look at myself in the mirror. I looked like crap. Well, I was dying. So there was that.

Unlike his brother, he was more hands-on. Instead of hiring an investigator, he’d done the field work. The whole purpose of the trip to Pennsylvania was to scout her out since he hadn’t been able to find anything online about her. Went to where she’d worked and pretended to be interested in enrolling a family member. All he had to do was smile and say a few flowery words, and he was able to dig up some info from her old boss.Well-liked by coworkers and patients.

Come A Little Bit Closer (The Sullivans #7)

And while he’d been there, he’d overheard the friendly blonde talking about the party. Pure luck that had put him in the right place and the right time without being seen. He’d gone to that bar with the full intention to engage her in conversation, get a feel for her, and honest to God, that was all he’d planned.And then he’d wanted her.He was vaguely aware of his brother approaching him. Knowing he should look away, he found that he couldn’t, that he didn’t want to.

Temptation Ridge (Virgin River #6)

He ignored his brother as he inched closer. When he first saw her last night, he had a purely primitive reaction to her and it had been too long since that had happened. Too long.I mean it. Irritation was evident in Dev’s low tone. Don’t even think it.

He wished his brother would shut up so he could gawk at his nurse in quiet privacy. Now how would you know what I’m thinking?

Are you seriously asking me that? he challenged in a low voice. You only care about two things. One of them involves fucking out what’s left of your brain cells.?kami frowned. No. The light of the moon needs to touch my skin in order for the magic to work. He inhaled, as though he wished to steel himself for the next admission. The demon I serve is cleaved from darkness. In order to wield its power, I had to swear several oaths, the first being that I cannot call upon it if I am beyond the light of the moon. If I even attempt it, I might lose control entirely.

What? Fear caused Mariko’s voice to splinter. What other oaths did you swear to a demon of darkness? Why would you do such a thing?I was a boy of ten when it happened. ?kami’s expression turned somber. And you’ve known what I am since the night we first met—self-serving at every turn. The sort of boy who risks his well-being in order to wield dark power. Who permits his best friend to assume his identity and all the perils that come with it. He shuttered his gaze. You shouldn’t concern yourself with me anymore, Mariko. It’s a mistake.

Dancing (Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter #0)

Anger ignited in her chest. If you didn’t want me concerning myself with you, perhaps you should have considered that before—I did not mean you made a mistake in caring about me. I meant that you have far more pressing concerns. ?kami took in another deep breath. Today the emperor informed me that your marriage to his clod of a brother will take place in the coming days. His words became clipped as he spoke, as though he were trying to marshal his fury. And failing miserably.

Mariko blinked, her mouth hanging ajar. So soon. She shook off the sense of foreboding that began sinking its claws into her. I don’t think Raiden is of the same mind. Her voice turned resolute. He barely spent a moment in my company on the journey here, and it’s clear he only tolerates my presence as a courtesy.It doesn’t matter. Pushing your marriage forward is a way to test your loyalty and drive me to ruin, all at once. ?kami kept still. Though I believe Roku remains uncertain of our connection, I fear he will soon realize the truth. His laughter was cold, its echo hollow. Our deepest truths are usually the hardest to conceal.

Though it was inopportune and inappropriate, that same mixture of pleasure and pain gripped Mariko again, as though a balm had been applied to a wound. It burned and soothed all at once. She leaned her forehead against the cold iron bars without thinking. Simply wishing she could be closer to him.Perhaps this was what it meant to feel love. To be together and apart in the same instant.

Mariko nodded as though a spirit had whispered to her through the seeping stone walls. You once told me I was water, she said to ?kami. It is something I think about a great deal when I’m left alone with my thoughts. Water shifts and flows with its surroundings, but I’ve realized something else. Still waters turn foul over time. Even if I am uncertain of the destination, I must keep moving. You must keep moving, before you rot from the inside out. Do not give up.?kami did not respond immediately. If you are water, I am fire. Fire destroys all that it touches. I will not destroy the people I love. Not anymore.
