“He missed everything about her, from her hot temper to her sassy retorts to the way her breath always seemed to catch every time her came near her. He missed the music of her laugh, the gentle touch of her hand, the clean scent of apples that seemed to cling to her skin. He even missed the way she completely spoiled Cinder and had stolen the wolf's loyalty away from him.”

“Ask me if I sparkle and I’ll kill you where you stand.” (Bones)”
Jeaniene Frost, This Side of the Grave

“Its practically suicide. And for what? For some woman?"
"Not just some woman." He grabbed a dagger and strapped it to his thigh under his tunic. "The woman. The only one I'll ever need or want.”
Crista McHugh, Deception's Web

“Everything has beauty," she said, "but not everyone sees it." Her stomach hurt, her eyes burned. "I saw you, Hatter." Her words whispered through the night. "I saw you." She walked away.”
Marie Hall, Her Mad Hatter

But only the fallen would make her feel the sudden violent lust rushing through her veins.”

I didnt realize it would be new characters. That is so exciting! I am sure we will learn a lot with a new angle on the story. How many books do you plan to write in the series?

Thank you so much! The book is finished and was turned into my editor in May. I'm still waiting on edits, an official title, and a release date. I promise I'll share them as soon as they're available. Here's a link to the unofficial details on it, though: http://www.cristamchugh.com/wordpress...
