    0
    0
  • If Giddon and Sarah were both in town, then she was alone.
    0
    0

    0
  • If you don't want me to use the pool, just say so.
    0
    0
  • She changed into a sleeveless blouse and shorts, wondering as she did so if he would object to the shorts.

    0
    0

    0
    0
  • On the other hand, if Sarah was telling the truth, there was another side to Giddon - a loyal brother.
    0
    0
  • Sarah was his mother, so he would be respectful, and if he wasn't she could always walk away.
    0
    0
  • If this was love, it was certainly a dangerous love.
    0
    0

    0
  • And if he doesn't?
    0
    0

    0
  • After all he had done, he dared talk to her as if she were a child.
    0
    0
  • If you think you can...
    0
    0

    0
    0
  • He deserved an apology, and she intended to give him one - if she ever saw him again.

  • If you leave the wagons behind, you'll be rewarding the Indians.
    0
    0
  • If you take them with you, it might give you cover if the Indians attack again.
    0
    0
  • On the other hand, if you abandoned the wagons and rode the mules, you might be able to keep ahead of the Indians.
    0
    0
  • One and a half or two if you leave the wagons - and leave tonight.
    0
    0
  • But what if we buried the supplies under the wagons and then burned the wagons?
    0
    0
  • I like the idea of burying the supplies, but I don't think the Indians would be fooled if we buried everything – even if we could.
    0
    0
  • If something happens to the rest of us, I want you to ride as fast as you can to Ashley.
    0
    0
  • Even the animals were quiet, as if they knew danger lurked in the darkness.
    0
    0
  • Maybe you'd like to stick around here for a while to see if they show up.
    0
    0
  • But if they don't want our food, why would they follow us?
    0
    0
  • If they left the reservation because they were hungry, why would they be out here?
    0
    0
  • What would they do if they caught up?
    0
    0
  • Cassie, if I were the type of man to run away from responsibility, would I be here right now?
    0
    0
  • And if she still couldn't make up her mind?
    0
    0
  • But if they thought she and Bordeaux were engaged, the matter would be closed.
    0
    0
  • If any rays missed their bodies, the sand reflected it to them.

    0
    0
  • Even if it hadn't been dark, visibility would have been less than a few feet.
    0
    0
  • If Bordeaux hadn't caught her, she would have fallen.
    0
    0

    0
    0

    0
    0
  • Not if they don't come back this way.
    0
    0
  • If she couldn't keep up she would likely get him killed.
    0
    0
  • What if he had abandoned her?
    0
    0
  • If the Indians were renegades, surely they wouldn't want to take the time to track only two people - not with the cavalry on their trail.
    0
    0
  • As much as she would like to have offered to walk while he rode, she knew they would cover ground faster if she rode and he walked.
    0
    0
  • As if challenging his statement, the bay jerked his nose up and sucked in a breath.
    0
    0
  • But if you'd rather take them off, go ahead.
    0
    0
  • That night they slept under the stars - Bordeaux a respectable distance from her, but close enough to assist if anything went wrong in the night.
    0
    0
  • If they married in Ashley, where would they live?
    0
    0
  • If they separated at Ashley, she might not ever see him again.
    0
    0

    0
    0
  • If he didn't bring up the subject again, she wasn't about to.
    0
    0
  • See if you can find out anything about Pete and the guys.
    0
    0
  • They had given up, deciding that if they hadn't found their bodies, they must still be alive and would find their way back to Ashley.
    0
    0
  • Wear this above your left ear if the answer is no - right if the answer is yes.
    0
    0
  • What if he sold the ranch?
    0
    0
  • What if Bordeaux bought it?
    0
    0
  • I had to come and see if it was you.
    0
    0

    0
    0
  • I'd only drag you down if I stayed with you.

    0
    0
  • Even if he was a Mormon, how could he make plans with this Darcie when he had proposed to her only an hour ago?
    0
    0
  • If that was the way he wanted it that was the way he would get it.
    0
    0
  • If she hadn't witnessed his exchange with the woman earlier, she would have been certain he was disappointed.
    0
    0
  • But if Bordeaux wasn't a Mormon, why would he propose to two women in one day?
    0
    0
  • At least he was honorable, but if the look on his face was any indication, he was regretting that offer.
    0
    0
  • She raced up the steps, wondering if men who could not be trusted would plague her entire life.
    0
    0

  • If there's one thing I don't need, it's a man telling me how to run my life.
    0
    0
  • If you felt that way, why did you keep making the trips?
    0
    0
  • Well, Bordeaux was just the man to help her forget it - if he'd only dedicate his attentions to Darcie.
    0
    0
  • Maybe she could convince her father to repay the money she had put into the ranch – if he hadn't already spent it.
    0
    0
  • I told Bordeaux if he wanted to buy it, he'd have to talk to you.
    0
    0
  • Because I love you, even if you are a...

    0
    0

    0
    0
  • He never wore a coat and she wondered if he even felt the cold west Texas wind.

    0
  • If all their conversations in the three months he had been coming to the diner were put together, it was doubtful that they would make a respectable paragraph.
    0
    0
  • She waited for him to open the conversation, idly wondering if it would be ten before he spoke.
    0
    0
  • His expression was bland – his voice unemotional, as if he were discussing the weather.
    0
    0
  • If you decide to take the job, have your things ready then.
    0
    0
  • If he isn't blind or dead, I'm sure he's noticed.
    0
    0

    0
    0
  • If you don't want to talk about your mother, we won't.
