Cody had never been one to go without women's attention, but he wanted nothing from the ladies of Willow Creek.
For a little while they sat there and enjoyed the gentle breeze of the sea. The water lapped   against the rocks further out near the old castle, and the salty air filled Nicky’s lungs.
I may not be rich, but have food and a roof over my head.  What is money, but a way to get things? 
KAREN CINO (Contemporary Romance)
Alexandra fumbled with her key.  The street light in front of the café blew out and the bulb in the old fashioned pole in front of the café was also off.  She had expected Billy to there already. But that was Billy, always full of surprises. 


The Primier sat at one end of the conference table while Ishmael was directly across from him. The table had computer screens built in them where placemats would be and the Premier was reading its contents. As Ishmael patiently waited for him to finish, Sabrina and Henry stood in the far corner near the window observing.

KALLYSTEN (Paranormal Romance)
Most days, Virginia enjoyed going to work. There was nothing thrilling about long sheets of numbers, rows and columns matching just so, with a few phone calls and emails going out when they happened not to match the way they were supposed to, but she didn’t need thrills at work; she had enough of those at home.
LEE ANN SONTHEIMER MURPHY (Sweet Historical Romance)
"The Root of All Evil"
