Buy One, Get Two and Three, Chapter 42, by Carol Pedroso
Daniel sighed when the door opened to admit Kevin again. He’d thought he would get longer to regroup and think up a new set of plans. But, that’s life. He was about to make some comment when another man joined Kevin.
The hair was different and the face was thinner, but those eyes. He would never forget those eyes.
“You,” Daniel snarled.
“Yes, me,” the man drawled. “I believe we have unfinished business, Silas.”
Daniel froze then flicked a glance at Kevin. One look at the man’s sickly expression and, yep, Daniel realized the old man had once again gotten them mixed up.
Moving Forward #67 (16.3) by Julie Lynn Hayes
The first thing Marshall noticed was that Roy’s living room was crowded with people, all of whom he recognized. Milly from the diner. Kelly from the grocery store. Jose and his son, who owned the bait shop. The mayor. Their neighbors, Sarah and Craig Ferguson. And the guys they hung out with at Partners—Rye and Slim.
What in the world was going on here? And where did these folding chairs come from?
He turned startled eyes toward Lee, who was smiling.
“If I’m correct, and I think I am, looks like there’s a wedding going to happen here. Am I right, Roy?”
I shoved another shirt in the spare bag. We really needed to stop at a store somewhere so Ritch could run in and grab some clothes. He couldn’t wear mine forever, though I liked seeing him in my clothes. I hadn’t been even remotely subtle about my interest and need to protect Ritch. That was probably why Deke had accepted him, even while he was on edge after just mating Kraig.
Tom tried to open his eyes, but he couldn’t. He felt too weak. The voice faded in and out, and he couldn’t place it. For some reason, he thought it was Nathan’s fault. Nathan had put him out in the cold, in the rain…
Tom coughed, and suddenly he started shaking. His body seemed to be devoid of any heat, and his muscles clenched and unclenched. He could barely feel his blankets covering him.
