He had indicated enough times that he would like to see her in something a little more feminine and fashionable.
It crossed her mind that Alex might be more than uncomfortable in these surroundings.Advertisement

The deeper the feeling, the more he attempted to cover it.

I guess the only thing he wanted more than that was a good woman and children.
She squeezed him once more and then released him.

Have you discovered anything more about him yet?
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.
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.
The building she had spent more than a month trying to get into and now was the site of an open house.

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.

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.
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.

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?

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.
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.
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.
Something private - or more interesting antiques?
The fire was burning down, though, so she added more wood.
The idea was especially welcome, as she had become so organized that cleaning took no more than half the day.
The inside of her legs were so sore that walking might be more comfortable.
She couldn't agree with him more, but it was an unusual viewpoint for a man.
That was it - nothing more.
Of course, it would be more profitable for the ranch if I culled those animals by taking them to the slaughter house.
More likely so they can stay in the black.
The more they get to eat, the more offspring they will produce, and some of those offspring will need to stake out new territory.
The more she learned about the way he thought, the more she was convinced that people around him were the strange ones, not Cade.
To him it was nothing more than bringing home a gallon of milk or a sack of feed.
He was no more expressive around Mary than anyone else, but he often asked her opinion on things.
Her visits are nothing more than an inspection tour.
Well; sometimes girls are more sensitive about things.
Cade escorted her to town and purchased everything on the list - plus a few more items.
And more important, did Cade think she was flirting?
She was little more than half-done and already he thought it was too much?
Somehow the latter seemed more likely with Cade.
She wasn't going to be able to sleep any more.
You'd like to be his housekeeper all right - and more, I suspect.
His voice was barely more than a whisper.
In fact, she had been nothing more than a spectator for a convincing roll Cade was playing.
And Cade had become more solemn in the last few weeks, as if he sensed her dilemma and felt uncomfortable as well.
Cynthia picked at her food, pushing it around the plate more than anything else.
Lately his actions were more fatherly than anything else.
He was merely trying to get her to go out more.
What more could I say?
A few more minutes - let him get completely relaxed.
Again he bent his head and his lips questioned hers gently at first, and then with more emotion when she responded.
His lips became more urgent as they found hers again.
For him it was nothing more than a brief episode of pleasure.
In a few more weeks she could make a routine visit to the doctor.
Was he hinting that she should give more attention to the exterior of the house?
What was more important?
No, he didn't fire me, but I can't stay here any more.
She dismounted and examined the equipment more closely.
If I had paid more attention to her and spent a little less time out on the range, she might be alive today.
It was plain that Cade was content with things the way they were, but she wanted more.
But as time progressed, his obvious reluctance to propose marriage presented a far more difficult problem.
There were more important things to think about at the moment - like how she was going to support a baby on her meager wages.
I tried to ask you more than once, but someone was always interrupting and throwing a new kink in my plans.
I thought you didn't respect me any more.
I can see right now that I'm going to have to be more explicit when I talk to you.
His smile came slow now, but it came more frequently.
Words of praise came more easily to his lips, but he still had trouble accepting praise.
Barely visible a half mile or more across the water were a few other camps.
Let's toss on the steaks and get some more beer before the rain starts.
It's wonderful on the open road once more!
No more just dreaming about it.
After introductions we gathered around the oak table to get acquainted as more beer and wine flowed.
He was history, in more ways than one.
Several minutes stretched into ten or more with neither of us closing our eyes.
I have to mull it around in my head a bit more if you don't mind.
I suppose I'd begin to doubt myself the more I thought about it.
Not that either; it was much more intense.
Quinn grew more annoyed by the minute.
I was conflicted; should I support the love of my life or be more pragmatic?
Frankly, I'm petrified what I experienced last night might somehow lead to more of the same; people poking sticks at my psyche.
My six foot frame more than filled the bed.
He cautioned, looking far more serious than the situation to warrant.
I sat at the desk as he reclined on the bed, more suitable to his five foot seven frame.
The longer Howie spoke on the phone, the more I felt guilty that we were manipulating him into a parlor game at the expense of his privacy.
When I sleep normally, it takes a lot more than that to rouse me.
We don't know if the cause is the power sources, some or more of the plants or the room itself.
Howie and I were relegated to shucking more corn and cutting up strawberries on the covered front porch as we watched the rain continue to fall.
While I preferred not to toss a wet blanket on her quest, I remained far more pragmatic.
I wish it were more concrete.
More so, he blamed himself.
As if on cue, an old car with more rust than clear metal chugged to a stop at the dollar store.
Some might be that old, but to remember back then, they'd be more'n ninety.
I first spoke to Martha, while not fully committed; I knew she was more sympathetic to Howie than her husband.
I don't disagree and God knows I have no more idea what's causing these visions but they're ruling his life right now.
You're doing this so the bees will be more interested in certain flowers?
Quinn joined us, looking more interested than earlier.
We conducted one more test before lunch.
We agreed the tests were finished for the day but mellowed by wine; we spent two more evening hours summarizing our findings.
Sunday was more productive than Saturday.
Howie was to remain in Massachusetts, at least for a few more days, working with Quinn and Martha.
Maybe now that our newlyweds are in town he'll be more reasonable.
We nodded our approval and awaited more revelations.
He's never out more than ten to twenty minutes at a time and three or four sessions make a heavy day.
That's why more current dates are more important and far easier to verify.
You have a right to more.
We still have more tests we could run but up to twenty four to forty eight hours; I'm pretty close on both time and location.
Howie was as excited as us once we could transport him more precisely.
We had more nonevents like uninhabited places than success but some were spectacular.
It's not only Quinn and his machines that are important; I need guidance even more.
This will be a scientific announcement for the ages, more than DNA, cloning, everything!
Betsy and I were more shocked at the buried animosity that the other three must have witnessed over the past few weeks.
Maybe blubbering will make you sound more credible.
I was, for a reason known to God alone, much more calm than the situation dictated.
It grew even more overwhelming after the broadcast of the eleven o'clock news.
Even Quinn showed more positive emotion than previously expressed.
There must be many more like Timothy Burton.
Can we do one more before you leave?
Betsy was more than eager to comply.
I choose the graves of my little ones far more carefully.
The more I thought about it, the more I was convinced of the incredible scope of Howie's gift.
We agreed there'd be no more sessions unless all five of us were together.
I became more frustrated with each passing minute.
When the first two tries proved unsuccessful, tempers frayed even more.
It was so heart wrenching to Martha she insisted Howie try more than once, in an effort to succeed.
In more serene surroundings perhaps we could come to some understanding and move forward in a mutually peaceful way.
I'm on the road once more with only my memory of sweet little Marcia for company.
We all want to do more, but we can't afford the time away from life to do as much as we want.
What's more, it may get worse.
How could I expect more?
We had no right to play god any more than we were already doing.
I have to be even more careful.
If any of this gets out, no more tips; it's finished.
Forget anything much more than forty-eight hours old and anything where a nearly exact time of abduction isn't known.
Is there a voice scrambler so we have more security when we call in tips?
I knew what I was about to say was far more than I wanted to offer.
It's difficult out on the road to hide them more than a day or two.
He tried to interrogate me more but I'd had my say.
I owe you more than you could ever know.
It seems you or your associates have a unique ability in these situations... more than unique; unprecedented.
This life; is it more important to each you than what you are accomplishing with this ability?
While Betsy loved her position, she was far more enchanted with our success and would adopt it as a full time venture in a minute.
I thought he would jump at a chance to devote more time to experimentation even if it wasn't as broad as he wished.
What could possibly be more important to us than saving lives?
I have more money than anyone deserves.
You must want more from us; at least knowledge of whom we are and what exactly we do and how we do it.
I'm as curious by nature as the next person, probably even more so, but to answer your question; no.
I asked, more to take his mind off mayhem than to elicit information.
I wish I'd had more time to do it slowly.
More wine was poured.
As our activities grew, the task became more daunting.
A comfortable bed replaced the cot utilized in Peabody and absolute darkness proved more conducive to sleep than the leaked light that often snuck into our old quarters.
The following day, Mr. Rupert Youngblood gained more notoriety, appearing on a national television morning show.
She was unable to pin him down on the cases of ours she'd documented earlier but he practically admitted he was personally responsible for all them and more.
He's gotten more looks than a braless cheerleader but nothing has stuck.
It was the first time in months Quinn would attempt to position Howie back more than a day or two.
Then I'll hit the road once more.
We'd learned to accommodate one another's quirks with no more than a raised eyebrow.
I was surprised the FBI didn't press us on some of these more prominent cases.
Betsy asked after once more, he'd left early.
It was now more than seventy-two hours after the kidnapping.
I have more on Rupert Youngblood.
The downside of setting up identities was that someone would learn more detail about us than we'd previously released.
It was the last time we heard from Daniel Brennan for more than a week.
In his absence, Julie surprised us once more by thanking us for referring Howie to a psychiatrist.
It looked more like she brought him.
Perhaps in time when she feels more secure she'll open up.
Let's hope he doesn't figure you can't go back more than a day or two.
He's learning more about us than we're learning about him!
But I'm out of the loop now, even more so now that the spooks are on my back.
I really don't know any more than the man on the street.
I was sure dear Brenda would be far more candid with the instrument pressed to her throat.
Most cases were earlier tips as lately, the authorities were far more cautious with our information; often even denying a tip was involved when an arrest occurred.
The tip covers only a few minutes, like she has to leave quickly, even though there must be more to be learned if she stayed.
But you remember some more of the number, don't you?
At least one more thing before I release you.
More of where the relationship might lead.
I volunteered no more information, nor did he want it, doubly so now that he might be suspected of having ties to us because of the frequent inquiries he made.
One more problem you don't need.
When I made a move to end the conversation, Brennan indicated there was more.
I knew this conversation deserved more thought on my part but it felt good taking some action, even if it might prove misguided.
This ought to help the credibility issue; there's more to some tips than the police know, but haven't made public because it would enforce credence in a psychic connection for the tip.
I'm sure Ethel Reagan had a thousand more questions but she didn't press me.
Martha, free to indulge, surprised me by drinking more than her share, an uncommon practice on her part.
This was more evidence of Howie's ineptness at the everyday chores the rest of us took for granted.
Molly appeared less shy around Howie than us, acting more casual toward him as if he was a member of her family.
Howie immediately began asking who needed more wine though our glasses were full.
Other than catching sight of Howie, together with Julie and Molly entering church on Sunday morning, we saw nothing more of our associate's Boston visitors.
Howie's body began a strange movement we knew to be his effort to move more rapidly.
Are there any more tidbits you can slip my way? she asked.
This killer left the scene of an aborted breaking where he was seeking more information on the tipster after he was wounded.
Soon it became apparent Howie would remain in Santa Barbara at least a week, perhaps more.
Maybe the woman is more forgiving now that so much time has passed.
While I wanted to wake Betsy and explain the situation I felt following Julie's directive might free her to be more forthcoming.
I feel more like a ship's sailor in a storm, with shredded sails with someone handing me a needle and thread.
She opens up for him; more than any other stranger.
She shook her head and began to cry once more.
I'd planned to ask Quinn and Martha to come in so I could tell them what I'd learned but the more I considered it, I decided a phone call was sufficient.
I get a lot of phone calls from people snooping for more information but I tell them I print everything I know.
If our boy made his getaway at more than five or ten miles an hour, you can bet your ass he was on one of these babies.
There was nothing more to say.
My search is for more than one as person as the tipster has helpers.
Betsy looked at her, as if wanting to hear more.
More nervous, I'd say.
Give me a call when you have some answers, I said and hung up before he could say more.
She was seriously disturbed at keeping secretes from Howie; perhaps more so than he was, doing the same thing.
It won't be long now; just a few more details to check.
I was desperate to learn more details about the crime.
She shook her head no once more.
