What Doesn't Kill You by Carmen Richter
"What doesn’t kill you is a standalone story with a dark undertone.

Ian is in need of a tutor. He plays football, but if he wants colleges to take him seriously he needs to improve his grades. Kyler is one of the girls who could potentially be his..." Read more of this review »

"Some great angst, but this revenge story really didn't need the extra 100 pages to be told. The H/h were engaged five years before. The heroine's evil step-sister convinced the heroine he was cheating with her and the heroine broke off the engagem..." Read more of this review »

I think this is the second best novel from among all 8 that were released in this month's Harlequin Presents category. I've also started to wonder whether Harlequin Presents is gradually phasing out the asshole alpha H trope. That's beca..." Read more of this review »

“The werewolf Senate hadn't been happy with the idea of a human alpha, and there wasn't a day that went by that I didn't think about the fact that I had something most male Weres wanted very, very badly...Maddy. Lake. Lily, Katie, Sloane, Avie, Sophie...”

Julie Kagawa
“Time has no meaning in the wyldwood. Day and night don't really exist here, just light and darkness, and they can be as fickle and moody as everything else. A "night" can pass in the space of a blink, or go on forever. Light and darkness will chase each other through the sky, play hide-and-seek or tag or catch-me-if-you-can. Sometimes, one or the other will become offended...and refuse to come out for an indefinite amount of time. Once, light became so angry, a hundred years passed in the mortal realm before it deigned to come out again. And though the sun continued to rise and set in the human world, it was a rather turbulent period for the world of men, as all the creatures who lurked in darkness and shadow got to roam freely under the lightless Nevernever skies.”
Julie Kagawa, The Iron Knight

Kiersten White
“I sighed. I hate the vamp jobs. They think they're so suave. It's not enough for them to slaughter and eat you like a zombie would. No, they want it to be all sexy, too. And, trust me: vampires? Not. Sexy. I mean, sure, their glamours can be pretty hot, but the dry-as-bone corpse bodies shimmering underneath? Nothing attractive there.”
Kiersten White, Paranormalcy

Kiersten White
“Just as he reached for my neck, I tased him. I was there to bag and tag, not to kill. Besides, if I had to carry separate weapons for every paranormal I took out, I'd be dragging around a full luggage set. Tasers are a one-size-fits-all paranormal butt-kicking option. Mine's pink with rhinestones. Tasey and I have had a lot of good times together.”
Kiersten White, Paranormalcy
