The voice and words belonged to Josh, and yet he had been dead for more than two years.
The deeper the feeling, the more he attempted to cover it.
What could he do about it but lose more sleep?
No more searching for frozen half-tires in the snow and stomping the water out of them.
"I won't talk about it any more," she said cheerfully.
Two to four weeks - maybe more.
I should get rid of this and buy something a little more feminine.
He had indicated enough times that he would like to see her in something a little more feminine and fashionable.
Umm. Well, I think something like 50% of marriages fail - maybe more.
Of course, Alex didn't have any gray hair yet, and his lips were fuller - more defined.
Alex had been hiding more than a father.
More than likely the correction was to prevent her from being embarrassed.
It crossed her mind that Alex might be more than uncomfortable in these surroundings.
Carmen refrained from looking at Alex or displaying the shock she felt at the introduction of two more siblings he had never mentioned - an entire family.
Alondra was attractive in a delicate way - her features more refined.
She'd start feeling more comfortable with the room.
Carmen glanced around the table, but everyone seemed to be more amused than disturbed... everyone but Señor Medena.
Do you have more requests?
With nothing more to do, she wandered in to watch him shave.
Ultimately it had cost them a child and her ability to have more.
There had to be more.
But it was more.
Do they want more?
"There's more, isn't there," Carmen asked, watching Felipa's face.
We'll know more about her recovery tomorrow.
Yeah, I think it's more like a miniature rodeo.
That's more like it.
Maybe he felt more comfortable thinking of it that way.
More than likely Alex didn't want to hear any more about danger, though.
Now it seemed more like a vacation.
If he thought Alex was warming to him, he saw more than she did.
Carmen couldn't make out more than a few words, but one of them was mare.
The man, or boy, couldn't have been more than twenty, yet his steps were as sure as the hands that whirled her around the room.
He looked even more distinguished than usual in his Spanish garb.
If he knew who Alex really was, he probably knew more than Alex did.
More important - would he stay?
I guess the only thing he wanted more than that was a good woman and children.
If it were totally innocent, he would have volunteered more information.
But it isn't more comfortable.
"More important," she continued, "Dulce gave this picture to me.
Maybe she has someone more suitable in mind.
More like Dulce has been talking to me.
But a lot more complicated for the other two, maybe.
She squeezed him once more and then released him.
It's not a decision or a wish any more.
Nothing more was said about the tear session.
Surely there was more to their conversation.
Maybe he loved his children more than she gave him credit for.
Alex seemed to be more comfortable around Morino than he was around his father's family.
The wooden banisters were polished to a high finish, and the hardwood stairs were covered on the walkway with more carpet.
More people she wouldn't know.
Alex sat up and leaned over her, speaking softy in a voice that was little more than a whisper.
If his tone was any indication, he wanted more.
"Lust," she repeated a little louder, and then said it firmly once more.
Some people just put more effort into distinguishing right from wrong than others.
The fact that they were expecting two babies instead of one made it more of a challenge.
After a mind boggling search through more investment files, she found his savings account.
No one could have been more private than Josh.
In fact, if she confronted him now and then, he might be more inclined to volunteer information before she found out about it.
Actually, what I said was that no one got to the point that they couldn't use more money.
More than that, he was willing to make concessions - in front of the children.
Actually, I would have thought it was a lot more - but then, he did pay cash for the house and clinic.
He wasn't opposed to having it, but he insisted on sharing it in fair business - and with his wife, more or less.
What causes a parent to love one child more than another?
I don't know why you guys don't go out to dinner more.
Consequently, it made more sense to submit to Alex than argue with him.
Thanks, I know we can count on you, Katie, but I think she'll be more comfortable staying at our house.
A few minutes later they came in and got Destiny to take her for more x-rays.
When the doctor arrived, he had more bad news.
Destiny coughed and sat up with a wale that sounded more like a broken growl.
More important, though, was the fact that he believed the child should not suffer for the sins of the parent.
Maybe it was more than that.
Maybe it was more a case of wishing it were so.
You are more important to me than having children.
He had a family to support - and two more children on the way.
Alex would never cheat - not on someone he respected and admired more than anyone he knew.
You deserved it... and much more.
At the moment, it felt more domestic than romantic.
So why was she looking for more?
It was so much more fun when she left it all up to him.
From now on she'd have a lot more respect for the art of romancing.
Maybe he was trying to protect her, but more likely he was simply trying to conceal the problem.
Immediately after that thought came another - more painful.
"I didn't know," he repeated with more emphasis.
More important, would there ever be a time when he stopped hiding things from her?
He said he felt bad about it, but conceded that Tessa had been less than honest with him on more than one occasion.
He said he wouldn't offer her any money until he had more facts.
It couldn't have been more than a few seconds, but it seemed much longer.
It was intended to encourage her, but it was more a distraction.
Natalie needed little encouragement - or maybe it was because Carmen was a little more relaxed and experienced.
In spite of the continual struggle for custody, he had felt more welcome at the Medena home than he had with his step-father's family.
If she had stayed with her husband and they had more children, would he have felt financially responsible for the others as well?
Now she had matured into an even more beautiful woman.
Allen had been drinking at the party a little more than usual.
Howard was a good ten years older and had far more important things on his mind – like his new position as partner at the law firm.
Food was more a distraction than a desire.
A 24-hour guard wasn't possible and arresting him would only make him more dangerous.
The car made one more circle in the road and then lunged at the cliff.
If only she could have one more chance.
Her cheeks warmed with more than embarrassment.
Then don't waste any more of my time.
Nonsense, you're not putting us out, but you're more than welcome to use the phone... and please call me Sarah.
It would only cause him more trouble, both with the trip and wagging tongues.
He shook the newspaper and said nothing more until Sarah announced that supper was ready.
It had taken more than an hour to get to school on the bus, making any after-school activities rare.
At this point the loss of her car was more an inconvenience than anything else.
This is more dependable.
The trail couldn't have been a road... more likely a wash.
A little further ahead, they glimpsed a white flash of tail as a deer bounded crossed the trail no more than fifty feet ahead of them.
After what seemed like hours of traveling down trails that were little more than rockslides, Giddon stopped the ATV and shut off the engine.
She paused for no more than a few moments, but apparently Giddon hadn't heard.
Better would be a long time coming, but she felt more in control of her emotions.
That would have been more convincing if you hadn't been so willing at first.
She hesitated, wanting to find a way home, but not wanting to ask any more favors of him.
By that time the Giddon family would have felt the need to feed her two more times.
His kiss was no more out of line than her response.
I wouldn't want to put you to any more trouble.
She needed to get out more if she found their disgruntled exchange entertaining.
He and Sarah had done far more for her than could have been expected.
I could have... would have been more of a comfort.
Not more than four hours ago he was so mad at her that he could hardly speak.
Rephrasing the question would be nothing more than a distraction.
Is your fit of curiosity satisfied, or do you have some more questions?
For the most part, the work she did for the Giddon family was little more than she would have done at home - with the exception that at home she probably would have made a sandwich instead of a meal.
More than likely it was born of self-preservation.
The path became more indistinct with each step, eventually coming to an end in dense underbrush.
Lisa stared after him; unsure which was more intriguing, the man or the path.
That night, for the first time in more than a week, she tossed and turned in the bed, her sleep interrupted by memories of her family.
But there were more important things to think about at the moment.
His remark about how she looked in the swimsuit made it obvious that he saw her as something more than a baby sitter or maid.
He grabbed her shoulders, pulling her roughly against him and kissed her lips in a demanding way that roused more anger than anything else.
Besides, her lack of response in the past had been far more effective.
Those animals were more afraid of her than she of them, and he knew it.
After a pause, his voice was more controlled.
Yes, wanting more money.
He spooned mashed potatoes onto his plate with a vengeance and said nothing more the rest of the meal.
Getting into that building was getting more important all the time.
Yet, one backward glance at the hard lines of the face over hers reminded her that there was more than the gentle side to him.
Her soft touch did more than erase the worry from his brow.
I haven't cooked more than a couple times since you came, and I'm afraid I might forget how.
In fact, I think my big mouth made him all the more determined.
I always thought he felt more pity than love for the old lady.
Every time he lashes out at you and gets his nails clipped in the process, it erases a little more of that fear.
I'll take you for a ride through more country in a day than you could hope to walk in a week.
An armadillo stared at them from a rocky ledge as they passed, and a doe and her fawn darted across the trail not more than a hundred yards ahead, disappearing into the brush.
No more so than the area round the house.
When you're riding an ATV you can cover more territory, and the animals have grown used to the sound of them.
You'd see less wildlife if you were walking - making more frightening noises to the animals.
"Lisa," his voice was barely more than a whisper as he pulled her into his arms.
As he had once said, he was a man of his word and he made no more advances.
More importantly, what would he say when she returned?
The more questions he asks, the tighter their lips.
More important, why hadn't Connie responded to her letter?
We'll have to do this more often.
Maybe Yancey would be more careful in the future about using the threat of bears as a method of keeping Lisa away from that building.
It's our home and you're more than a sitter or maid to all of us.
Didn't he know that the more he didn't want her to see it, the more she wanted to see what it was?
Have you discovered anything more about him yet?
"You look more horrified than surprised," she said.
Best keep her eyes on the trail for any more footless friends.
More likely the latter.
It sounded more like something a woman would think of.
It was a soft kiss, not demanding but more inquisitive.
The encounter had frightened him more than he would admit.
He was dead on when he said she was more afraid of her emotions than him.
Maybe he had more information he didn't want to give over the phone with Yancey listening.
So I've finally found something you're afraid of more than me.
No matter what happened, he would always be more than a fond memory - maybe a first love.
More likely it stemmed from the fact that she had not gone to the house yet.
It was several more minutes before she was able to take deep breaths – even longer before she was able to utter more than a strangled sound.
His kiss was more than friendly.
Now she wanted it more than life itself.
"Lisa," his voice was louder and more demanding.
The building she had spent more than a month trying to get into and now was the site of an open house.
The three of them walked abreast along a narrow road consisting of no more than two bare strips of dirt in the grass.
Lisa seemed to fear him more than she did Giddon.
Each case I handle gives me that much more experience.
There was no denying that Brandon was a private person - or that he had confided in her more than Rachel or Julia.
It can't be any more dangerous than driving around in Tulsa.
And burn more calories.
The gray eyes held a glint of something more than humor, but his lips twisted into a satirical smile.
Maybe his mood had more to do with feeling unappreciated.
It was something more unsettling than friendship.
She couldn't have been more awake before she left the house.
Did he suspect that she was beginning to feel more for him than simple friendship?
He deserved more than the sympathetic ear she had been lending him lately.
Her erotic dreams were proof that he was becoming more than a friend to her, and that thought was troubling - both from the standpoint of her goals, and the fact that she was setting herself up for rejection.
The minute he detected something more than a platonic relationship, it was going to be good-by friendship.
It was beautiful in winter, but it would be much more so when the trees gained color.
Following a long drive that consisted of little more than two ruts worn by vehicle tires, they came to the Marsh ranch.
Nobody stays at home to look after the kids any more.
Some day Michael would grow up and realize there was something more in life than conquest.
Was he was feeling more than just friendship for her?
Don't you think that was more than a little distracting?
It's been more than that for a long time - or am I only imagining things?
What more is there to learn?
It's just that sometimes I wonder what is more important in your life - your career or me.
It isn't a matter of which I love more.
Do you want me to give up my schooling just to prove that I love you more?
If you get stopped, you'll loose more time than if you go the speed limit.
Brandon gave the car more gas and it straightened up, darting between the two vehicles.
Nothing she had ever experienced in her life was more painful than that moment, knowing his pain and not being able to say a thing to help.
Sure, they had spent more time wandering on the ranch, but that was only because Brandon wanted to get her alone.
They were offering more than she could make after several years' experience at the hospital in Tulsa.
You don't hear that much any more.
It sounded more like a statement than a question anyway.
The more she heard, the harder it was to believe the job was for real.
You're more important to me than that ranch.
I'm saying what we had together was more important than what I have now.
More than likely the unidentified rider was only another drifter.
Hopefully her voice sounded more composed than she felt.
Only a few more trips and the loan on the ranch would be paid.
A horse and rider could cover more distance in a day that the mules could pulling the heavy freight wagons.
He was proud of the fifteen or more miles his freighters could travel in a day.
Wherever Bordeaux was, he was probably more comfortable than the rest of them.
If you throw one more dead animal at my feet, I'm going to beat you over the head with it.
Anyway, we'll reach Ashley in four or five more days.
Why would I want to see more of the same thing I view from this wagon seat all day?
Each trip was more boring than the last.
Four more days and they would be in Ashley.
Four more days and she would go back to the ranch.
She was confused and a little annoyed by a growing desire for a more serious relationship.
In a few more days they would all part company anyway.
She flicked the whip so that the end of it snapped on his shoulder - a warning, no more.
As for abandoning his children, there's more to it than you think.
That's nice of you, but there should be more to a marriage than convenience.
Her feelings for Bordeaux had become more than mere friendship.
He leaned over to get more coffee and Cassie pored him another cup.
We'll spend two hours burying supplies - no more.
More hostile than this?
She plodded on, willing herself to take each step, not thinking of the miles to go, but merely getting through one more painful step.
Somehow she managed to take a few steps, and then a few more - fury driving her on.
I don't think they're with us any more.
After what seemed like hours, but probably wasn't more than thirty minutes in the hot sun, Bordeaux stood.
At the end of the pool, it seeped back into the ground between some more rocks.
More important, what had they been doing?
The water wasn't much more than a drip and it took us a long time to fill the canteens.
No, it was more than that.
I hope you find this trip a little more comfortable than the last.
The look of pity on Darcie's face was more than Cassie could bear.
In fact, now I'm even more convinced I was right.
He slapped the team into action and they headed for town at a more leisurely pace.
The wages weren't all that great, but deducting rent, utilities and groceries from her present salary, it wound up being a good deal more.
The house sits more than a mile off the snow plow route, so sometimes I'm snowed in for a week or so.
You do more work than the other two girls put together.
I'd think that would make you even more comfortable with the idea.
I guess his stepfather thought more of him than her.
He drove the speed limit - no more, no less.
Apparently he spent a lot of time on the back of a horse, riding his range in all kinds of weather - a fact that prompted more than one comment by townsfolk that he had wasted a good college education.
Again she wondered if she had bit off more than she could chew.
