Apparently not Harry, but every two-bit author seems to find it the height of originality to put it in their story. The next time the fox and scorpion wanna cross the river they better take a tourist booze cruise or else my head is gonna explode! (Ummm sort of like it did here.)"

48.0% "Harry gets to get his lust on being tempted by the Winter Queen. This tacky scene is one of the Dresden Files guilty pleasures - I suppose - Harry getting turned on is a reoccurring theme/scenario in the books."

55.0% ""I am my PAIN!!" No, wait a minute, that is Kirk, not Harry. Harry is an emo guilty creature of lust and violence. Butcher does infuse him with with a soulful melancholy though. So the Summer Queen tempts him with a cessation of all his wounds of his heart. Still don't buy his sadness over Susan. (In that I'm expected to accept her as someone he actually loves - but Harry feels guilty for everything anyways."
