    0
    0
  • When she didn't respond, Alex looked up.

    0
    0
  • More important, would there ever be a time when he stopped hiding things from her?

    0
    0
  • Why would he need to lie when he could simply tell her that it didn't concern her?

    0
    0

    0
    0

    0
    0
  • When Alex approached Carmen about giving Tessa some money, she said it was up to him, but keep in mind that the issue could have been something like drugs.

    0
    0
  • When it finally came back to her, the frown was still there, but his expression was cognitive.

    0
    0

    0
    0

    0
    0
  • Maybe it's something a person understands better when he becomes a father.

    0
    0
  • Or when he has a wife to point the way.

    0
    0
  • When had he shut out those fond memories of rodeos and outings at the Medena hacienda?

    0
    0

  • When the spasms passed, she turned to the man she had nearly killed... the man who had helped give her that second chance.

    0
    0
  • When he continued to assess her, she boldly returned his appraisal.

    0
    0
  • "I wonder how I can get my car back on the road," she mused, and felt relieved when his attention returned to the car.

    0

    0
    0
  • She was putting supper on the table when she glanced out the window and noticed Giddon riding Diablo back into the yard.

    0
    0

    0
    0
  • Giddon was leaning against the kitchen sink, frowning into a cup of coffee when she entered.

    0
    0

    0
    0

    0
    0
  • Cautiously, she crept up to the door and peered around it, jerking her head back instinctively when she spotted Yancey unlocking a door to an inner office.

    0
    0
