Ruthless Billionaire: Forbidden Baby

Author: Emma Darcy

Publisher: Mills & Boon (2009)

Tammy closed the door and leaned back against it, staying out of the firing line of the volatile aggression pouring from Fletcher as he stalked around, checking out her living space, even poking his head into her bedroom and bathroom. `This place is a shoebox, Tamalyn,' he shot at her. Her chin rose defensively. `I've managed here quite happily for the past seven years.' `It meets a single person's needs. It will not do for you and the baby,' he stated emphatically, his gazing dropping to her stomach again. He scooped up her door key, and the handbag she had laid on the kitchenette counter when she'd grabbed for the telephone. `Let's move,' he said, with an air of unassailable decision, striding back to her and gathering her in to his side as he reopened the door. `Where are you taking me?' she asked, alarm at being swept out of the security of her own home kicking her heart out of its numb state. `I'm taking you to what will be our place.

Secret Obsession

Author: Charlotte Lamb

Publisher: Mills & Boon (1995)

'Do I have to remind you that it was me you married, not him? 'I want a divorce, Ben! Nerissa broke out in a voice that shook, and the room filled with an intolerable tension. 'I'll fight it,' he said curtly. 'I'll use any weapon I have to-even if it means bringing him into it. What do you think that will do to your family pride? Dear Reader The Seven Deadly Sins are those sins which most of us are in danger of committing every day: very ordinary failings, very human weaknesses, but which can sometimes cause pain to both ourselves and others. Over the ages they have been defined as: Anger, Covetousness, Envy, Greed, Lust, Pride and Sloth. In this book I deal with the sin of Pride. In certain circumstances, pride can be a strength and comfort, but in other circumstances it can be deadly, particularly when family pride leads people to lie, to suppress truth about the past, or when someone is too proud to admit their feelings.
