“The war's only just begun.”
Elizabeth Richards, Black City

“She's not worth it. You said so yourself, you don't even know if you have feelings for her—"
"Then why does my fragging heart feel like it's been ripped out of my chest?.”
Elizabeth Richards, Black City

“She may have your heart, but that's not the reason I love her," I say. "It's not just a physical connection. It's something deeper. You may be my Blood Mate, but she's my Soul Mate. That's just as powerful.”
Elizabeth Richards, Black City
