“He was all but shouting, stalking toward her. He grabbed her arms and gave her a little shake. "This time, the bastards don't win. I win."
"What do you win?" she whispered.
He bent his head and crushed his lips to hers.”
Michelle Diener, The Emperor's Conspiracy

“She hadn't seen him since yesterday, and Charlotte did not understand the sensation that gripped her at the sight of him.

“I think he's quite aware , as is everyone here, that you don't need to worm your way into my bed, Miss Raven." He stepped away from her. "You need only crook your finger and I would be ripping your clothes off your body.”
Michelle Diener, The Emperor's Conspiracy
