“He was realist enough to know he might never find the life partner he longed for, and dreamer enough not to quit looking”
Eden Winters, The Wish

“Lucky bit down on his tongue before, "You're so full of shit I'm surprised your eyes aren't brown," clawed its way out of his mouth.”
Eden Winters, Diversion

“He folded his hands behind his back and puffed out his chest. Reminded Lucky of a barnyard rooster. Anybody who referred to Lucky as a cocky little bantam found out pretty soon that Lucky could back up his strut, and this guy was probably the roostah who used ta, or he wouldn’t be teaching.”
