“Funny thing about fear. When you cling to it, the fear grows exponentially, a monster morphing into a suffocating mass. But when you face it head-on, conquering the beast before it swallows you whole, you find there was nothing there to fear at all. The chains break, and the whole world feels lighter than ever before.”
Juliette Cross, Waking the Dragon
“You want to be possessed, but not controlled. You want to be protected, but not smothered. You want to be dominated, but only in one way.”
Juliette Cross, Waking the Dragon
“Every kindness and every abuse makes a mark upon the soul.’’ My voice trembled. “The soul remembers”
Juliette Cross, Darkest Heart
“I want you in my arms. I want you in my bed. I want to bury myself deep inside you and feel you shatter beneath me, again and again. I want you daily, nightly, repeatedly, constantly, forever. And when I know it’s safe to take you, you’d best be ready. If you’re not, you’d better run and hide, because it will take a legion of angels and demons to keep me off of you.”
Juliette Cross, Forged in Fire
“I'm not really what you'd call a damsel in distress."

Juliette Cross, Darkest Heart
“Words, Genevieve.” He smiled with such sadness, my heart cracked. “They mean nothing next to your actions. It is what we do that defines who we are and where our devotion truly lies.”
Juliette Cross, Sealed in Sin
“... But I won't be your prey. There's only one hunter here." His grin sent a shiver down my spine. "I want something more from you, Sorcha Linden. More than your body.”
Juliette Cross
“To thine own self be fucking true”
Juliette Cross, Darkest Heart
“The lines had blurred. Not just between good and evil, or heaven and hell. But in my own fucking black heart. What was left of it anyway. Seems this beguiling, enigmatic angel had sparked some pitiful little light there.”
Juliette Cross, Darkest Heart
“Then take me to the stars, baby”
Juliette Cross, Darkest Heart
“So that's what it feels like," he mumbles, his breath coming heavy as he tilted towards sleep.
"What, what feels like?" I asked into the dark, the moonlight painting the coverlet silver.
I thought he'd fallen asleep entirely, but then, "To fuck a woman I'd die for.”
Juliette Cross, Darkest Heart
“He whispered in one long breath, “I have wanted you from the moment you first walked into my bedchamber, bringing me a bowl of broth from the kitchen. I have wanted you every second of every day and every long, long suffering night. It cut me to the bone so deep that I couldn’t control myself. I couldn’t keep away from you, not even in my dreams.”
Juliette Cross, Dragon Fire
“I couldn’t explain it if I tried. Why the dominant animal that lived inside me needed her near me, within my protection, like I needed air in my lungs. It was older than time, this savage compulsion. If I’d been a true dragon like my ancestors, and not half human, I would’ve already tucked her beneath me, spread my wings in a show of dominance, and melted them with a breath of fire. But Morgons were more civilized, so I pretended I didn’t want to maim them for looking too appreciatively at Liana, keeping her close to my side.”
Juliette Cross, Dragon Fire
“Then cry havoc, baby. And let slip the fucking dogs of war.”
Juliette Cross, Darkest Heart
“For many minutes, we did nothing but touch each other and absorb the sensation into our skin, as if love itself were a tangible blanket wrapping us in an unbreakable bond.”
Juliette Cross, Waking the Dragon
“Never stray from your own kind, Jessen,” my mother would say, “or you could end up like Princess Morga, a slave and outcast to be abhorred.”

The problem was, I’d never been a very obedient daughter. Never the one to do exactly as I was told. And fairy tales have no meaning when the stars align and Fortune spins her wheel, weaving her own story for your heart.”
Juliette Cross, Soulfire
“God was a poet the day he made Jude.”
Juliette Cross, Forged in Fire
“When he was rough, my body soared. When he was gentle, he slayed me.”
Juliette Cross, Windburn
“Redemption was wonderful. But love? Well, hell. That was everything”
Juliette Cross, Darkest Heart
“My spirit balanced on the razor’s edge of light and dark, freedom and slavery, life and death.”
Juliette Cross, Darkest Heart
“We always knew our story would be a tragedy.”
Juliette Cross, Darkest Heart
“I want you, too, Liana.” A feather-light kiss, lingering and warm beneath my ear. “I need you… like the sun needs the sky.” A hotter kiss down the slope of my neck, while he kept my hands and my body locked in place against the railing. “Like the stars need the night.” He removed his mouth from my skin, sliding his hands up my arms, and then backed his body away from mine, holding me at the waist. “Like a dragon needs flight.”
Juliette Cross, Dragon Fire
“Don’t start using ‘sister’ now to try and make me behave.”

“Am I going to need to make you behave?”
Juliette Cross, Dragon Fire
“God, Kieren. Is there anything you’re not good at?”

The huskiness in his laugh promised me he was good at everything.”
Juliette Cross, Dragon Fire
“Oh, Liana,” he said gravel-deep, shaking his head. “You have no idea what you’re offering. What you’re asking for.”
Juliette Cross, Dragon Fire
“My body was strong, even if I’d taken on a new injury since I’d been here. A sweet wound in the shape of Sister Liana.”
Juliette Cross, Dragon Fire
