Meg O'Brien

  • What do women want anyway? as the grand old master of psychology said. Well, hell, there was only one thing I could think of: to be their own men.

  • ... my cabbie ... didn't know how to drive. As an alternative, he had obviously seen movies of driving. We whomped up and down the hills of San Francisco like Steve McQueen in Bullitt ...

  • A Scorpio, Samved had told me, may seem open and friendly, but he needs a lot of privacy.

  • If we flaunt our wealth, we make enemies of people who have only their inner strength to get them through. And those are the people I want on my side.
