00"My plan didn't exactly work," Kiki's tone was frustrated.

00Rhyn froze. The voice was Gabriel's, but the assassin's argument was unlike Gabe, who would know exactly what Rhyn would do after their conversation in Hell.

00Katie hesitated before shuffling forward on her knees. She carefully touched the woman's leg then patted it as she followed it down to the thick roots wrapped around her ankles.

00In fact, he was doing exactly what she had indicated she wanted him to do.

00Marriage was exactly what she expected and thought she would want – and yet there was something missing.

00Exactly the point she had tried to make with Katie.
