If his sisters could not handle nishani, he must.
You have other sisters and brothers?
"Beloved. It's used for sisters, mothers, and mates in our world," Jule answered.
Like his sisters and advisors, he was losing faith that his nishani existed.

He saved my sisters from his own father.
If that doesn't work, I'll take your sisters to my planet, Jetr answered.
The second battle he would leave to his sisters: teaching his lifemate how to behave according to dhjan standards.
He didn't doubt that once she reached her new home and his sisters reminded her how to act, she would be both exquisite and tame.
It might take all three sisters to rein her in, if even their hands were firm enough.
A'Ran sent for his sisters to meet them outside the small dwelling they had taken refuge in several years ago.
Two of his sisters were waiting, composed and serene in their dark clothing with hands clasped in front of them.
Both older sisters nodded in deference as he approached, and he glanced over them to assure himself of their health.
Curious, A'Ran neared, hanging back as his other two sisters approached.
A'Ran, assuming his sisters could handle the newest member of their family, turned and started toward the white dwelling before him.
It was nowhere near as large as their true home but was comfortable and well-maintained, an adequate place for him, his sisters, and now his lifemate.
His three sisters knelt over his lifemate's still form.
My sisters will instruct you in the behavior I expect of you.
After exploring the halls and grounds for an hour or two, she returned to the main atrium, where she heard one of the sisters call her name.
The scene would repeat itself several days in a row, whenever one of the sisters tracked her down.
Kiera bowed her head as she'd seen the sisters do, trying hard not to look guilty like she'd overheard his conversation.

She was distraught about something, though he couldn't fathom what might distress her if the news of his sisters' impending babes and complete loss of honor did not.
You kidnap me, trick me into marrying you, dump me here alone without Evelyn or even a pad of paper, with instructions for your sisters to give me behavioral training, and run off to fight some battle somewhere else.

"I guess the sisters spent the day at the museum," Cynthia said.
Pierre stood looking at the sisters; then he bowed and said: Then I will go to my rooms.
The heavy, masculine features that made him fierce had rendered his sisters too heavy of face to be pretty.
The game room was the only place the sisters didn't bug her, and for the first time since being kidnapped by Evelyn and A'Ran, she found herself having fun.
He closed his eyes, recalling how happy he and his sisters were before the war.
He cared for his sisters; they were his blood relations.
The Quincy sisters strolled by moments later, arm in arm.
Ryland made a beeline for his room, and the Quincy sisters tromped up the stairs, Effie giving a three-finger wave and Claire looking as if she'd punch out the lights of anyone who got in her way.
The Quincy sisters sauntered down.
She was the sole guest remaining in the building as the sisters were off for a Sunday tour of the town.
As he spoke, the Quincy sisters entered the front door.
He probably got an early start on his own sisters down on God's little acre.
Did the Boston sisters get all the poop on Annie before you got there?
Cynthia had received a phone call from the Boston sisters telling her their flight was delayed and they weren't now expected until late afternoon.
The sisters Quincy were anything but a matched pair.
