One of Anora Fitzroy's earliest memories was standing in front of her new foster mother being lectured on loyalty.
"No one expects loyalty from a bastard." She'd looked at the six year old in front of her. "Because of who you are, my dear, you must not only BE(more)
"That's what happens when you restrict the channel too much," Quinn looked at her 10 year old foster daughter who was looking a little singed and surprised. "It'll give you better direction but overdo it and it blows up."
"Yes Aunt Quinn," the girl tucked her tongue between her(more)
Anora didn't know precisely when she knew she would never be good enough for her brother's wife. The conclusion struck her rather hard as she was laying in her bed one morning, wishing that she could find it in her heart to like Annabelle.

In the days that followed their exchange, Thomas found his eyes drawn to her as she moved about Tidwell University. Tall and slim, she was nearly always dressed in a tidy blouse and dark wool skirt and belt with a jet brooch at her collar. Her dark auburn hair(more)

Thomas rocked back on his heels, "what?"

There were not that many people in this world that Adrian Avalon trusted. His sister topped the list, she was a horrible liar, especially to him. Sebastian came next, he could lie, but never saw the point to it. His grandparents followed so close behind him that he couldn't(more)

"Lord Thomas Bard, Emissary of Underhill" The Queen's secretary announced as the tall, spare man walked through the door and bowed before her.
