'When Gordon made his suggestion to her, Deidre replied with a glance that exposed the ice in her heart and he knew he'd spend the night in the guest room again.'

'Marylyn counted the crystals of ice that poured from the soft leather bag, handed her by her aged but hideously rich admirer, before she calculated how she'd reward him.'
