“I thought you liked suffering and death. I mean... you always look like suffering and death.”
Richie Tankersley Cusick, Walk of the Spirits

“You've got the wrong girl."

"On the contrary..." the voice murmured, "I've got exactly the girl I want." Her body turned to ice. Her mind fought for calm. There were people only yards away, yet she was alone...

"You're bleeding." Lips closed over hers. A kiss so passionate that time faded and stopped... so passionate, it sucked her breath away... Searing heat swept through her- pain and pleasure throbbing through her veins. With a helpless moan, she leaned into him and realized with a shock the kiss had ended.”
Richie Tankersley Cusick, The Unseen
