Alex was doing everything in his power to provide her with all the experiences of a natural mother.
With every scrap of will power she possessed, she resisted the urge to help him with the buttons.
Yet there was something about the way he moved, so full of grace and power.
I sure didn't have that much will power.
What I have up there is just a power source and magnetic field.
Quinn is packing up the power sources as we speak and the plants will be destroyed as part of the test.
We don't know if the cause is the power sources, some or more of the plants or the room itself.
I've set up the same old power sources as New Hampshire and I managed to gather up about a third of the same plants.
Is there any difference in the power?
A few hours later, Quinn would set the power source to the time and location, not informing Howie.
As long as Quinn could place Howie in the past, we'd do everything in our power to support the effort.
Here we were, caught up in the euphoria of our accomplishments, like a group of dissimilar workers sharing a winning power ball ticket, and thinking that success made us friends for ever.
Quinn handles the power and Howie is our focus.
Sworn assurances you or your people will not pursue our identity in any way and you'll do all in your power to protect our anonymity.
It was a moonless night and the perpetrator cut the power, pitching the farm house into total darkness.
We stumbled into an incredible gift that was bestowed on Howie and we couldn't live with ourselves or look at one another if we didn't embrace everything in our power to maximize its benefits.
I know it won't last forever but as long as we can, we have to do everything in our power to keep it alive.
I couldn't believe Howie would turn off the power for what was supposed to be a short trip.
Well, your pal leaves for a few days and turns off the power.
That the power hasn't been off very long.
I came to call on Mr. Abbott and had carefully shut off his power and was ready to visit when what do I see but he has company.
Howie, did you turn off the power at your house?
There too was the matter of who turned off the power at Howie's house and why?
I agreed and mentioned the timing of the power shut off at Howie's house after he'd left town.
I promised I'd do anything in my power to not let that happen.
Not with standing this, I resolved not to do all in my power to keep Molly from suffering his abuse.
He blinked and used his power to Travel to his study.
He closed his eyes and summoned his power to Travel, one of the most useful gifts Damian granted him.
Desire rose hot and fast in him, more so when he felt the cool tickle of her power, the combination of cool energy and warm skin making his blood race.
Though his body didn't speak of it, she directed her power towards it as well.
She withdrew, startled at the vacuuming of her power.
Her evolving power told her more than she wanted to know, even before she faced him.
She released her cool power into him, but to no effect.
Sofi's cool power whipped through her thoughts, but it was the darkness within the small woman that drew her attention.
Damian can do that, too, but Darian's too weak yet to tap into his power.
He'd never been afraid of anything in his life until that moment when all his power and control meant nothing.
She touched his face, then his hair, her cool power soothing him.
She placed her hands on her face and winced as Sofi vacuumed her power as Darian had.
His body sucked healing power from her.
Sometimes they know how to fix themselves, like you did, and I just give them my power and let them do it.
His skin was colder than snow, the power radiating off him like an arctic breeze.
She felt another drain as he took another swig of her power, and coldness, then silence.
She has the power of ancient healers to return to life that which otherwise wouldn't live.
The storm beating against the windows had shut down the power; the hall was lit by candles and makeshift torches.
He'd stopped draining her healing power, and she felt a change in his body.
His body drank her healing power.
She looked up at Darian a short distance away, watching his dark-light power streak around the room.
"Whatever happened drained all my power," Jenn said.
He felt completely depleted of his power, the sense of being fully human again returning.
Kinda felt like our power short-circuited.
Looks like Darian took out everyone's power but Damian's.
His phone was destroyed and his power drained.
I'm hoping whatever happened here in Florida didn't permanently damage our power.
So you sapped us to keep her from absorbing our power.
If not for her unusual power, and his cold magic, she would've considered him crazy.
He sat like he owned the pub, leaning back in the chair in a display of relaxed power.
She radiated power that even humans could feel.
How he wished he had his power!
He held her gaze, struck by the aura of power around her.
He wasn't sure what her gift was or what she was trying to do, but he'd never met a Natural with her unique combination of power and strength.
The hum around the Other assured Jule there was only one person in the alley without any sort of otherworldly power.
Darian's power had grown; the air of the room shimmered, and light and dark alike warped in the space around Darian.
You're absorbing what little power I have.
For someone who needs more power, it's a very useful talent.
His body rippled with angry power that made her keep her distance.
His power pushed her against the wall.
His gaze was hard, and she felt him flex his power again.
You have any insight into why my power is jacked up?
It wasn't like the Magician's magic, which somehow fused with his, as if they were one person sharing one source of power.
Suddenly, it stopped, and his own warm power flooded him.
I mean, I might be able to seal the breach I made, if it doesn't get bigger and I can borrow Damian's power.
She'd never suspected the depths of her father's strange power, and her first attempt to channel it was the reason the house was now lit with candles.
She braced herself and pulled his power into her, struggling to control it while panic rose.
His power moved through her like a wind in a forest.
What was your first thought when you felt the power surge?
Jule's eyes glinted with the magic in his body, and the air around him shimmered in a different power than that of her father.
She braced herself for a flood of his power, but it didn't come.
He wasn't sure what was going on, and he wasn't about to worry Rourk more by admitting there was a seven-foot vamp with unlimited power loose somewhere.
Yully wouldn't be home yet, and there was no tingling of power that would indicate the Other was present.
He needed his power.
She took it, his power moving through her and making the hair on the back of her neck stand on end.
After you drain their power, they'll be given the same choice as the humans: serve or die.
He glowed with a different sort of power.
Do you know how I can regain my Original power?
"Something tells me it's in your best interest to help me regain my power," Jule noted.
Certain creatures with unlimited power and motivations thousands of years in the making weren't what Damian really needed right now.
I know one way to return your power to you.
The ancient megalith pulsed with power older than that of her father's.
The power beckoned to her, and she obeyed.
She closed her eyes to the gentle flow and strange sensations: Jule's warmth, her father's hot-cold rain, the ancient power of the ruins.
Yully followed more slowly, enjoying the feeling of the power moving through her.
Yully steadied her breathing and obeyed, taking comfort in the power of the site.
The power pushed her off balance, and she caught herself before it sent her sprawling into the blood pooled around her.
The site's power comforted her, and she kissed Jule's medallion.
The sky began to dim, and she played with the magic, adrenaline speeding the power's flow through her.
Yully let the power fill her and mix with the other energies, staving off panic that there was much more than she could ever control.
He gathered his power, and an orb of light formed in his hands.
She took his hand and absorbed what she could of his power.
He pulsed as strongly as the two blocked men with the power he'd absorbed.
Yully faced him, unable to pull his power without touching him or reverse the drain he had on her.
His newfound power had broken whatever barrier the Watcher put between them.
Darian's head was spinning, his mind reverberating with the power of the site.
Instead of draining his power, the woman was shoving power into him.
His body seemed too weak to contain his newfound power.
The power within him stabilized and filled him until he felt ready to explode.
Jule released his newfound power into her.
Power flowed from Xander and Jule, through her toward the Other, pinning him against the pillar behind him.
The mess in Ireland earlier made her body crawl in memory of the dangerous power.
His dark gaze was steady, his body rippling with the power she couldn't quite pin down.
Yully met his gaze, utterly relaxed and content with his heat and power moving through her.
Something had changed with him, too, and she sensed the subtle power that hadn't been there at the monument.
His power sizzled around him.
A sense of power swirled around him that scared her.
She'd never known the power of a single touch until everyone who touched her hurt her!
Claire was the closest thing, but she never received the training because her power was too weak.
The air around her shimmered with subtle, calm power that thrilled him.
"Sleep," he whispered, releasing a warm burst of power into Sofia.
Damian shoved the other end of the tube into his neck, releasing his power.
She placed a checkmark next to the first of her ideas for learning to use her power.
He released a small burst of power into her.
His display of checked power disturbed her.
He entered her room, emitting enough of his power to hide him from her senses.
She wanted him, the man behind the titles and the power.
His aura of power, his command and confidence, the sense that—whatever he was—he was something humankind wasn't prepared to face.
His power was checked but his unusual presence enough to draw the looks of those around them.
She'd never loved Darian and had used him to gain his title and power.
He gathered his power and sent it toward her, wrapping it around her tightly.
Damian's home videos played, intertwined with those of others, until a wave of power washed over her.
The sense of power increased tenfold as she entered the mansion.
The power swirling in the air around her grew as she neared Damian's door, and she was reminded of the tension in the air before a thunderstorm.
The burst of furious power shot through her, the shockwave rattling the windows of the house.
Awed by the power she had over him, she began to understand the extent of his solitary existence for the millennia of his life.
Your deal holds the power of the Dark One to enforce the debt, since you are his.
As my mate, you have the ability to draw off my power.
Gabriel's body was built for power; Darkyn's was crafted for agility.
As my mate, you are able to use a limited amount of my power, he explained.
He was using the truth to hammer down her resistance and his power to seduce her.
Yes. It didn't hurt he's old enough that he's had time to build his power as well.
As I learned, my deals hold the same power of enforcement as his.
Maybe I shouldn't be, but I'm glad Darkyn stripped her power.
You reek of Darkyn's power.
She was beyond terrified of the power Darkyn held.
Darkyn gave her the power to seduce without the knowledge on how to turn off its effects, if it was even possible.
His dark eyes swept over her, lingering at her neck, where her wound had healed with Darkyn's power.
Yesterday, she saw the power she could have to help people from Hell.
"I'm the only one you never could kill, even if you used all my power against me," he replied.
His power comes from the depraved and the forbidden.
He shared some of his power or whatever your deities do.
You should know the power of a deal with him by now.
Darkyn stripped my power when I left Hell.
The sudden shift of power around him made her uneasy.
I have the power of Hell at my back.
Dean explained to their guest the winter power of Mother Nature.
You will find much of your power diminished, especially among those who used to bow to you.
We are at the bottom now, hated by all, without the resources of power to which we were accustomed.
His quiet power was underwhelming, until one saw him in action.
You are a deity without a domain or source of power, which means you have nothing I could possibly want, Darkyn said.
"If I win the deal, will you return my power?" she asked, face flushed.
She was about to summon a spell to clear the sidewalk completely when she recalled she wasn't able to use her power anymore.
Without her power, she wasn't able to sense him or the danger he posed.
"Word on the street is that Darkyn took your power," the other said with a toothy grin.
She found herself reaching for her power again, only to find it gone.
Her Gabriel, who spent his life a part of the shadows, radiated the quiet power of a deity that reached her from across the room.
She gave up her power, her domain, and her entire life for this opportunity.
The half-demon rippled with power.
A small pulse of power, and the man dropped.
It was the sign it was time to resign, for her power was nearly gone.
With the power of Hell behind him, Darkyn could raise an Army of Souls to wipe out the mortal realm.
The only thing I didn't count on was Darkyn giving me the choice of my power or Gabriel when I left Hell.
I even gave up my power, my domain, everything.
It was his secret power, the one few others knew about.
She's completely enamored by you and has no power, so she poses no danger.
How had she never noticed his subtle power before?
The chain-of-events had unfolded the way she planned, except that Gabriel didn't fall into her lap, and she had lost all her power in the process.
Deidre shifted, aware again that she was now defenseless against the creatures that used to either fear her or at least, respect her power.
It was a sign that her power was weakening, just like the cracking of the sky in the underworld's dome.
What if he couldn't have been with her unless he gave up his underworld and power?
The demon's wiry frame was armed, his black eyes steady and quiet power restrained.
He used his power to soothe her sleep.
Darkyn stripped her power, turning her human.
Though he possessed nowhere near the level of power he used to, he was still able to sense the figure cowering in a corner.
Both demon lord and half-demon were bristling with power, the Dark One's growl audible long before Gabriel reached them.
Only Andre would manage to sound calm standing before two creatures with enough power to turn him to dust.
With the tear between worlds, he was able to use more of the power normally restricted to Hell.
Dark power surged around him.
Gabriel summoned her with enough power that she wasn't able to ignore him, even if she was upset.
If I have no power, my mate is defenseless.
You come in without power.
"You traverse my domain without power," the demon lord countered.
Of course he was going to do everything in his power to stay alive.
He'd hoped to be granted the same level of power as his predecessor.
Sensing the pulse of power, Rhyn whirled from the far side.
Gabe sensed some sort of Immortal power.
Gabriel felt again he was missing something huge, the key to assuming the power he hadn't inherited with his responsibilities.
Darkyn's quiet power was more like Fate's.
The softness of her body combined with the power of their bond jarred him.
He was putting himself at her mercy again, except that, this time, he had the power and chose not to use it.
Jared bowed his head and fled, well aware of the power of the demon lord's fury.
Deidre dug through her purse as she walked and pulled out her cell, thrilled to see she had battery power.
The little girl pushed the pages until satisfied, and Deidre didn't have the mental power to tell her it wasn't normal to start mid-book.
Controlling a deity would bring incredible power to the demon lord at a time when Rhyn was struggling to battle demons already.
Though the power of mind manipulation was far from brain surgery, he might also know how to help Deidre.
Green power flowed from the souls in the lake, through him and into the gem.
He'd been ignoring the extent of the power available from the souls for fear of violating the Code, which he now understood was not binding in the face of a threat like Darkyn.
The souls were barely glimmering; there was no way he'd be able to pull the amount of power he needed to save Deidre.
Gabe knew he must look half-wild: drenched, muddied and sizzling with power.
Soul power rippled through him and with it, the sensation of the invisible shackles he'd worn his entire adult life melting away.
This time, she sensed restrained power of a different kind.
The power of an Ancient is beyond anything humans can understand.
When the sand is gone, I'll make him dead-dead, unless he can learn to control his power and to work with his brothers.
Rhyn felt Hell's and Sasha's power roll over him like a boulder in a river.
So you give me my power back but don't free me.
They gazed at each other for a long moment, her shock and exhaustion too deep to fear the man who radiated power and control, even in a simple T-shirt.
If this woman gives you the power to do so…
Mortals need the power of reason to deal with us.
Used my newfound power to steal a key from some robed freak.
Ully found out Kris can use your power to make him immune from the other Ancients.
His power felt the same, but maybe his time in Hell had mellowed it out, made it more responsive to his command.
It was said two of them turned on the others, aligned with evil, and only Andre had the power to kill any of the others.
I killed over a hundred of Sasha's creatures at the Arch with only a fraction of my power.
over a supermodel was softened by the rationale that he would also innately recognize his intended mate, even if he didn't recognize her ability to help him control his power.
You don't have the power to offer me that.
Have you learned some control of that demon power, little brother?
Or maybe to his own desire for power.
Because of her, you can control and channel your power.
She was the only one who had the power to end this before he died.
Its back reached her shoulder, and it moved with restrained, lethal power.
Rhyn.s warm power filled her as she drew on their bond as mates, and the portal opened.
She needed a quiet, safe place where she could channel Rhyn.s power to call forth a portal.
Rhyn tossed the demon against the wall with enough power to break its back.
Most who challenged him soon learned just how wild and deep his power ran.
He didn.t attack, simply let his cold power loose into her for a long moment before releasing her.
Even in death, he holds power.
You know, Gabe, even though we.re no longer bound, I can still control my power.
He radiated the kind of quiet power Gabriel did.
He sat up, bloodied and lightheaded, unable to quell the power roiling through him.
He didn.t remember his power being so strong.
Rhyn.s head spun with power and emotion.
Pain rippled through him and another wave of power radiated off him, turning the boulders nearby into powder.
He staggered back, unable to control the power within him.
"That.s some serious power," he said.
Unsettled by the display of power, she started to skirt away.
Part of him knew the Council was stalling him for that reason, though whether they did so to hinder his efforts or to maintain the appearance of their power over him, he wasn't sure.
One hundred years ago the stream was damned by the Ouray Electric Power and Light Company.
"She was answering to a higher power," Effie added.
It's always changing but it has great holding power.
While stroking her hair, he spoke softly, "My name is Jackson Parrish, and as God is my witness, I will do all in my power to correct this situation."
With this fortification, Victor will have no power over you.
The power ended up to be hardly worth the aggravation.
I will do everything in my power to help you be the queen of cool.
