    0

    0
    0

    0
    0

  • Tammy and Sarah were in the kitchen when she returned, and Tammy was standing in a chair ripping the cover off some chocolate chip cookies.

    0
    0

    0
    0

    0
    0

    0
    0

    0
    0

    0
    0

    0
    0
  • Yancey stalked off to his chair, muttering something under his breath.

    0
    0

    0
    0
  • The fingers of one hand clutched her throat, while the other warded off her blows.

    0
    0
  • "GET OFF OF HER!" a voice boomed.

    0
    0
  • Allen let go of her and jumped off.

    0
    0

    0
    0
  • It occurred to her that he might push her off it.

    0

    0
    0

    0
    0
  • He wasn't trying to be rude; he was merely fending off an uncomfortable subject.

    0
    0
  • Of course, a little make-up and the right clothes could do wonders - which was a good way to wind up straying off the path she had mapped before she left home.

    0
    0
  • You're beginning to hack me off.

    0
    0
  • If you want to wait until I get off work, I'll try to leave a little early so we won't get back so late.

  • Nowadays they cart them off to some baby sitter they hardly know, just to get the kids out of their hair.

    0
    0
  • I reckon that's something that needs to be done, and them children would be better off with a woman looking after them.

    0
    0
  • It seemed that she had barely dropped off to sleep, before someone was pounding on her door.

    0
    0
  • What if I fall off?

    0
    0
  • In addition, all her planning and tenacity were paying off.

    0
    0
  • I might meet some tall, dark, handsome man on the way, and you'd chase him off.

    0
    0
  • He nodded and she waited, but he never took his eyes off the coffee cup, and remained silent.

    0
    0
  • I know you leave the cap off the toothpaste and I even know when you...

    0
    0
  • I'm beginning to wonder if you're too polite to tell me to shove off.

    0
    0
  • Her voice trailed off at his grin.

    0
    0
  • Would it be such an imposition to take just one day off to go see my parents?

    0
    0

    0
    0

    0
    0
  • Adrienne felt the rage tearing at her lungs, plucking at her nerves until she wanted to twist Julie's neck off.

    0
    0

    0
    0
  • He stopped and gazed off at the distant hills.

    0
    0
  • Why did she need to prove to anyone, least of all herself, that she was right in breaking off the relationship?

    0
    0
  • He was better off without her anyway.

    0
    0
  • "I'll live off the land," he responded casually.

    0
    0
  • Turning on one heal, she stalked off to her wagon.

    0
    0
  • Maybe he wasn't a saddle bum, but only a greenhorn would think he could live off the barren land that surrounded them.

    0
    0
  • Hopefully he wouldn't wander off and get lost.

    0
    0
  • It had been two years since their mother had died - three since their father had run off with that harlot.

    0
    0
  • Her voice trailed off as realized he was talking to Bordeaux.

    0

    0
    0
  • With lightning speed, he caught the end of the whip in his hand and jerked violently, catching her off balance and pulling her off her feet.

    0
    0
  • Bordeaux picked his hat off the ground and dusted himself off.

    0
    0
  • I almost have the ranch paid off.

    0
    0
  • He left us kids to fend for ourselves and now he thinks he can come back and pick up where he left off.

    0
    0
  • She took careful aim and squeezed off a shot.

    0
    0
  • Would he ditch her and run off with the other woman?

    0
    0
  • It would have been easier to run off and leave them.

    0
    0
  • Each carrying two canteens, a rifle and a lantern, they started off into the long shadows of the sand dunes.

    0
    0
  • Unsure whether to move away from him or verbally fend him off, she did neither.

    0
    0
  • Nothing to echo off of, she supposed.

    0
    0
  • "No," he said, rubbing the blood off with a handful of sand.

    0
    0
  • Bordeaux had been leading the horse along the ravine to spare its hooves, but it had been a risk that hadn't paid off.

  • But if you'd rather take them off, go ahead.

    0
    0
  • She pulled her boots off and waded into the cool water.

    0
    0

    0
    0
  • She stepped out of the tub and dried off.

    0
    0
  • As she stepped off the walk to cross an alley, a lean figure stepped out of the saloon.

    0
    0
  • When you ran off like that, I didn't know what to think.

    0
    0
  • They moved off and their voices faded into the noise of the waking town.

    0
    0
  • Then he'll be taking off.

    0
    0
  • He was probably washing some of the dust off his insides last night and overdid it.

    0
    0
  • The two young women didn't get off at that stop.

    0
    0
  • She picked up a small valise and lifted her skirt as she stepped off the boardwalk into the dust.

    0
    0
  • The buggy bounced over a rock and she clutched his arm to keep from falling off.

    0
    0

    0
    0
  • Bordeaux pulled the team off the road, following a trail off through the pasture.

    0
    0

    0
  • Every time the subject of your father came up, you got defensive and I backed off because I was afraid of losing you.

    0
    0
  • What time do you get off?

    0
    0
  • The house sits more than a mile off the snow plow route, so sometimes I'm snowed in for a week or so.

    0
    0
  • Again she wondered if she had bit off more than she could chew.

    0
    0
  • There was no point in freezing her buns off darting across the cold floor to lock the door.

    0
    0
  • Three empty bedrooms were closed off to the heat, as well as a full bath that looked as though it hadn't been used in years.

    0
    0
  • Apparently the water had been shut off up here to keep it from freezing.

    0
    0
  • That's why the other ranchers want to kill off the wolf?

    0
    0
  • Eventually her attempts to tame him paid off, and he allowed her to touch him - provided she was careful not to move too quickly.

    0
    0
  • She snapped the radio off.

    0
    0
  • She cut her explanation off short as Cade pulled into the drive.

    0
    0
  • She sighed heavily and slid off the bed.

    0
    0
  • "Good night," he said as he snapped off the light.

    0
    0
  • He gazed off across the hills.

    0
    0

    0
    0
  • When she crawled into bed and turned off the light, the night sky performed a fireworks display in the distance.

    0
    0
  • He leaned forward as he helped her dismount at the barn, rain rolling off the brim of his hat in a stream.

    0
    0
  • Why don't you curl up on the couch and get your bare feet off this cold floor?

    0
    0
  • She stabbed the spade into the flowerbed and gazed off into the distance.

    0
    0

    0
    0
  • He strode off into the other room.

    0
    0
  • I thought you might like an evening off.

    0
    0

    0
    0
  • Her voice trailed off.

    0
    0
  • You're off the clock now.

    0
    0
  • You know Cade; you could make a profit off this ranch other ways than running cattle.

    0
    0
  • "You never said a lot of things," she cut him off shortly.

    0
    0
  • Cynthia wiped a tear off her cheek and when she spoke, her voice didn't sound like her own.

    0
  • All right, I get off at nine.

    0
    0
  • Her words trailed off at his raised brows.

    0
    0
  • Then when Mary arrived, you ran off.

    0
    0
  • Do you have some reason you want to put it off for a while?

    0
    0
  • Zach jerked suddenly, knocking his cap off and exposing a scalp full of red hair.

    0
    0

    0
    0
  • Betsy nodded, gave me a kiss, and trotted off to follow our hosts.

    0
    0
  • He's only here until Sunday night when we drop him off in Boston for his flight back to the west coast.

    0
    0
  • His mother pushed him off on us because he stayed up here in New Hampshire because he stayed here a couple of summers growing and she thought visiting might jar something loose.

    0
    0
  • I think she just wanted to get him off her back.

    0
    0

    0
    0
  • Martha was quick to brush off his regret, telling him it was a fun exercise.

    0
    0
  • He wasn't exactly babysitting... she wasn't that young, but he snuck off someplace and she was taken.

    0
    0
  • To tell the truth, I did it because I was pissed off at him over my losing Annie.

    0
    0
  • The adults were off someplace and we got a little drunk, I guess.

    0
    0
  • Betsy left the key to her sumptuous room, in the city's finest hotel, allowing me to drop off my duds before meeting him in the hotel lobby.

    0
    0

    0
    0

    0
    0
  • Quinn, still steaming, plopped down and switched on the television to a college football game, turning off the sound.

    0
    0
  • That got me pissed off and Quinn accused me of always taking Howie's side.

    0
    0
  • We decided to take the evening off and have a nice meal in Boston.

    0
    0

    0
    0
  • The director tried to question me but I cut him off, saying we possessed no ambitions beyond what we were doing.

    0
    0

    0
    0

    0
    0
  • Where was platinum, palladium, scandium, coal or peanuts slacking off?

    0
    0
  • "I want to stop him before he screws up a real missing person case by sending the police off on a snipe hunt," he snarled.

    0
    0
  • Both felt we should keep our hands off the matter.

    0
    0
  • Maybe now Youngblood would stay out of the news and Howie would back off insisting we take action to stop him.
