    “As he passed me, he leaned to Curran and handed him a paper fan folded from some sort of flyer.

    Curran looked at the fan. “What?”
    "An emergency precaution, Your Majesty. In case the lady faints.”

    Curran just stared at him.

    Raphael strode toward the Pit, turned, flexed a bit, and winked at me.

    "Give me that,” I told Curran. “I need to fan myself.”
    "No, you don’t.”

    “He leaned his head to me, his neck so close to my lips, I felt the heat coming off his skin. His breath was warm against my ear. His voice was a ragged snarl. "I miss you."
    This wasn't happening.
    "I worry about you." He dipped his head and looked into my eyes. "I worry something stupid will happen and I won't be there and you'll be gone. I worry we won't ever get a chance and it's driving me out of my skull."
    No, no, no, no.........
    We stared at each other. The tiny space between us felt too hot. Muscles bulged on his naked frame. He looked feral.
    Mad gold eyes stared into mine. "Do you miss me, Kate?"
    I closed my eyes trying to shut him out. I could lie then we would be back to square one. Nothing would be resolved. I'd still be alone, hating him and wanting him.
    He grabbed my shoulders and shook me once. "Do you miss me?"
    I took the plunge. "Yes.”

    “Kate short-circuits my brain. In my head we always have these clear coherent exchanges, but once we meet, what comes out it is, “Kate, do what I say or I’ll kill you.” Her default reply is, “Fuck you!” and we go downhill from there.”

    “You thought about dragging me into your bed this morning.”
    "I thought about stabbing you and running away screaming. You broke into my house without permission and slobbered all over me. You’re a damn lunatic! And don’t give me that line about smelling my desire; I know it’s bullshit."
    "I didn’t need to smell you. I could tell by the dreamy look in your eyes and the way your tongue licked the inside of my mouth.”
    Ilona Andrews, Magic Strikes

    “Yes. What is it, guilt, revenge, love, what?”
    I swallowed. “I live alone.”
    "And your point is?”
    "You have the Pack. You’re surrounded by people who would fall over themselves for the pleasure of your company. I have no one. My parents are dead, my entire family is gone. I have no friends. Except Jim, and that’s more of a working relationship than anything else. I have no lover. I can’t even have a pet, because I’m not at the house often enough to keep it from starving. When I come crawling home, bleeding and filthy and exhausted, the house is dark and empty. Nobody keeps the porch light on for me. Nobody hugs me and says, ‘Hey, I’m glad you made it. I’m glad you’re okay. I was worried.’ Nobody cares if I live or die. Nobody makes me coffee, nobody holds me before I go to bed, nobody fixes my medicine when I’m sick. I’m by myself.”
    Ilona Andrews, Magic Burns

    "The writing under it, is that Cyrillic?"
    "Yes."
    "What does it say?"
    "Dar Vorona. Gift of the Raven. I am my father's gift."
    "The raven is holding a bloody sword."
    "I never said it was a nice gift.”

    “He finished the bandage and was examining it critically.
    "You know those things are unreliable." His voice held just a touch of reproach.

    “I’ve had a lot of practice. The Pack contains thirty-two species in seven tribes, each with their own hang-up. Jackals and coyotes pick fights with wolves, because they have an inferiority complex and think they’ve got something to prove.
    Wolves believe themselves to be superior, marry the wrong people, and then refuse to divorce them because they cling to their ‘mating for life’ idiocy.
    Hyenas listen to nobody, screw everything, and break out in berserk rages at some perceived slight against one of their own.
    Cats randomly refuse to follow orders to prove they can.
    That’s my life. I’ve been at this for fifteen years now.
    You’re easy by comparison.”
    Ilona Andrews, Magic Strikes

    “Everybody has something, that one thing they must do to feel happy. I think this is yours, and I want you to be happy. You don’t have to do it, but it’s here if you choose to come back to it.”

    “You don’t return your phone calls.” The vampire leaned forward, tapping my doodle with a scimitar claw. “Is that a lion with horns and a pitchfork?”
    “Yep.”
    “Is he carrying the moon on his pitchfork?”
    “No, it’s a pie. What can I do for Atlanta’s premier Master of the Dead?”
    Ilona Andrews, Magic Bleeds
