“I've told you before, Salmeo, you may be more woman than man but you cannot think like one of us.”
Fiona McIntosh, Emissary

“The waltz was the only way a young couple could touch one another, and even through gloves I could feel the heat of your grandfather's touch,'she'd tell Luc, with a wicked glimmer in her eye.”
