“He was so full of life and confidence part of me wanted to slap him. But another part wanted to let him show me how to feel like that. That part made me want to slap myself.”
M.J. Scott, Shadow Kin

“I wasn‘t talking to Simon. Talking might lead to something foolish like wanting to kiss him again. Or punch him. One of the two.”
M.J. Scott, Shadow Kin

“In that case, maybe you‘d be so kind as to leave me alone and let me sleep?"
"I want to talk to you."
Lords of hell. More talking.”
M.J. Scott, Shadow Kin
