    Summary

    It took everything Peter had in him to not reveal that he was already thinking about it. Not to FYI. He didn’t want to be on the same show as Murphy again. But until just a few months ago, putting down roots was suffocating. Now, all he could think about was the smell of Obsession and her high thread count sheets and being woken up by a giggling almost-four-year-old.

    Summary

    Serbia. Again. At Christmas. Just like last year.” Murphy stood up and walked over to the fireplace, watching the last of the embers that refused to go cold. She didn’t want to be emotional about this. She knew this was part of the deal. She’d spent her own share of Christmas mornings in war zones.

    Summary

    Objectively, she’s a beautiful woman. Beautiful and sophisticated and intimidating. But he’ll keep reminding himself that all of that means nothing. She’s attractive, sure, but it’s not like he’s attracted to her.

    Summary

    She could get through this. She wasn’t going to give that annoying little girl in the back of her head that giggled like Corky did whenever Peter was in the room any legitimacy. Peter drove her crazy and this planet wasn’t big enough for the both of them and it wasn’t like that damn dance had meant anything. Or like that moment in the stairwell with the donuts hadn’t been one of the biggest turn ons in her life.

    Summary

    She could have told everyone the truth, but Murphy wanted Peter by her side her when she did. She wanted them to believe her when she told them she and Peter had realized they were being stupid and that misery didn’t love company. She wanted them to eat their hearts out when he took her hand and pulled her close and kissed her in that way that always made her knees weak.

    Summary

    This was what it meant, right? To love someone through the good and the bad? He’d always sworn he didn’t need vows to love her like he’d married her, but now he understood why people did it. Why people stood up in front of friends and family and god herself to make a promise to look after each other.

    Summary

    She’d get back to missing her boyfriend once she spent some time on this story and finished up this report on issues in Bosnia for the CPJ. She settled in the library, ready to lose herself in the stack of notes, when the phone rang. Only two people called at this hour - unless it was Miles - and she cursed the universe for telling Avery she didn’t go on assignments like that anymore.
