“Ty.” Zane’s low voice was followed by the touch of his hand and a firm tug that shifted Ty closer to his partner, and after another tug, Zane pulled Ty practically onto his lap and against his chest, then wrapped his arms around him securely. “I’ve got you, baby. I’m here.”
Divide & Conquer, Chapter 14
Rub your back/tummy
“Tell me?” Zane murmured as he rubbed Ty’s back, trying to soothe him. It was like working with a spooked horse, and it had been decades since Zane had tried to rein one in.
Armed & Dangerous, Chapter 8
Zane moved closer, his eyes rapt on Ty’s. Ty’s hand moved from his chin to cup his cheek, and Zane leaned to kiss him carefully. The kiss demanded nothing. It was merely a sentiment of love and devotion from one man to another.
Touch & Geaux, Chapter 14
Play with your hair
“Oh, come on. The one time I take a swing at him, and he still comes out better than I do? There’s funny in that. Like Charlie Brown with the football.”
Zane smiled a little and rolled his eyes. He reached up to touch Ty, sliding his fingers along the base of his skull into his hair.
Stars & Stripes, Chapter 2
Tell you funny stories about me
“You know, if you don’t want to talk about it, I’m not that big on talking anyway,” Ty offered softly. “I won’t mind.”
Zane sighed. “Nah. It’s just silly.” He winced. “I was on the square-dancing team.”
Sticks & Stones, Chapter 7
Sing to you
Ty readjusted his hold, pulling him closer and starting into the slow sway again. He began to hum along with the song, and soon he was singing quietly near Zane’s ear.
Divide & Conquer, Chapter 9
Keep you warm
“C’mon, Grady. I’ll give you the warm spot.”
Ty draped his arm over Zane’s shoulders as they walked. “I’ve trained you well,” he claimed, sounding very pleased with himself.
Zane chuckled. “You do realize the only warm spot in that tent will be under me?”
Sticks & Stones, Chapter 12
Bring you food
“I brought some lunch.”
“Ugh,” Ty responded automatically as the thought of food made his stomach protest.
“Yeah, I figured that would be your reaction.” Zane’s voice held a hint of amusement. “So I got chicken, mashed potatoes, and biscuits. Plain stuff to settle your stomach.”
Divide & Conquer, Chapter 5
Watch your favorite movies/shows
“No,” Ty said, serious as he stopped and turned to look at Zane. “I don’t have to go home with you.”
Zane raised an eyebrow and cocked his head.
“I can’t wait to get home with you. Even if it’s just to crawl in bed and watch that stupid-ass show you like so much, I don’t care. Whatever I do, I’m glad I’m with you.”
Stars & Stripes, Chapter 1
Draw you funny little pictures
“You are going to draw me something, and you’re going to do it tonight.”
Zane laughed. “What?”
“You should draw me a tattoo!”
Stars & Stripes, Chapter 4
Tell you how much I love you
“I love you,” Ty said, the quiet words devoid of any self-consciousness or his usual bravado. “And I’ve never been able to say that before with such conviction. I can’t remember a time that you weren’t the first thing I thought of, and I want to spend the rest of my life with you. I don’t care what stands in our way.”
Armed & Dangerous, Chapter 12
