    Summary

    He’d expected her to be a force of nature. He’d expected her to storm in and possibly kill him for being in her space. He hadn’t been expecting to get lost in the most stunning set of indigo blue eyes he’d ever dared to look in to. He hadn’t been expecting so much power into such a compact frame. He hadn’t been expecting flowing blonde hair, and a choker necklace, and the way her lips quirked when she stared back at him.

    Summary

    Inside the casing was a roll of blue paper and she pulled it free and pressed it to her lips. She couldn’t help but wonder if women Corky’s age did this. If they had the same connection to scrawl on paper, a moment in time from a warzone half a world away. She had a box full of letters from the years, some from lovers, some from friends, some she’d written and never sent to men like Jake, women like Jessie. It had been a long time since she’d indulged in the power of the silence of a war zone letter.

    Summary

    A week ago, she’d been passed out on her floor, still in her overcoat, safe by some miracle of the universe. She could have killed someone on the drive home. She could be in jail right now instead of sitting on a porch in Palm Springs, surrounded by her fellow self-addicted celebrities. What a life that would be - from news queen to drunken murderer. Grace from a God she didn’t believe in had managed to get her home that night.

    The part of her that needed to protect herself, needed to keep her heart at bay because her life was her kid and work was reminding her she didn’t need a man because she had professional recognition and work to do. She didn’t need a man, but she wanted one. She wanted this one.

    Summary

    She didn’t need a Prince. But a King would be nice. Someone to stand with her, an equal. She hated that she was lonely, hated that she wanted that companionship. But she did. And as the clock ticked ever closer to an age where even she was scared to tread, she was starting to wonder if her future was full of men like Baldwin: beautiful, driven, and completely dispassionate. At least, when it came to her.

    Summary

    “First off, I don’t care that you’re older than me and if you don’t get that by now, we’re in trouble.” He kissed her. She sighed into the moment. “As for my brother,” Josh said. “I know it’s a thing. But I’m only here for a week, and I want to see more of you.”

    Summary

    He couldn’t know that she hadn’t returned his calls while she was sick because she was terrified she’d beg him to come home and she couldn’t show that side, that need. He couldn’t know that even though she’d finally told Jerry how much she loved him, it was Peter she was in love with and she wanted him to come home.

    Summary

    The smell of second hand tobacco prompted an inadvertent inhale from Murphy, sending a rush to the neurons in her brain that so missed her 2 pack a day habit. Most days she was fine. Even being at Phil’s, where she was surrounded by smokers, it wasn’t that hard. But right here, next to her, a smell of smoke and old spice, so familiar, it was hard not to want to stay in the moment. Even if it was coming from Jerry Gold.

    Summary

    She had made a difference. She’d changed the course of corporations and political careers with her work. An entire presidential campaign had been altered because of her, really. And if she could take even a small bit of credit for Bush only having one term, she’d own it. She had a life to be proud of and a son she was proud of. And if she griped about the police not getting to her door fast enough, or bitched about how much her car cost to fix, or made sure Avery got into the best school possible (and he would get into that school), then she would have to own some of her own reality.

    Summary

    How would you like to go somewhere for a dinner of pancakes and bacon? You know those thin kind of pancakes that are brown at the edges?

And go home and sit by the fire and watch a tape of Fellini’s The White Sheik? - Ben to Murphy, Fax or Fiction

    Summary

    The clear tone in her voice gutted him far more than the words, and he understood the sentiment. He too had stopped drinking, and she was as much an addiction for him as he was for her.

    Summary

    So really, what would it matter if she drove to the store, bought a bottle of Jack, and drank until her liver gave out? She’d be one more washout. Paula and Jane and Katie would go on just fine without her.
