    Julie Kagawa
    “My name is Ashallyn'darkmyr Tallyn, third son of the Unseelie Court...Let it be known--from this day forth, I vow to protect Meghan Chase, daughter of the Summer King, with my sword, my honor, and my life. Her desires are mine. Her wishes are mine. Should even the world stand against her, my blade will be at her side. And should it fail to protect her, let my own existence be forfeit. This I swear, on my honor, my True Name, and my life. From this day on..." His voice went even softer, but I still heard it as though he whispered it into my ear. "I am yours.”
    Julie Kagawa, The Iron Queen

    “He’s playing every bit as hard as I am, only he knows what he’s doing and I don’t. Don’t blame me because he’s a better manipulator than I am — I haven’t been around long enough to learn all his tricks.”
    Stephenie Meyer, Eclipse

    Richelle Mead
    “What's up?" I asked.

    You tell me," he said. "You were the one about ready to start making out with Adrian."

    It was an experiment," I said. "It was part of my therapy."

    What the hell kind of therapy are you in?”
    Richelle Mead, Shadow Kiss

    “I set off, off to kill the man I love.”

    Richelle Mead
    “No," Dimitri interrupted gently. He moved his face toward mine, our foreheads nearly touching. "It won't happen to you. You're too strong. You'll fight it, just like you did this
    time."
    "I only did because you were here." He wrapped his arms around me, and I buried my face in his chest. "I can't do it by myself," I whispered.
    "You can," he said. There was a tremulous note in his voice. "You're strong—you're so, so strong. It's why I love you.”
    Richelle Mead, Shadow Kiss

    “Wait. You think I'm going to die? That's why you slept with me?”
    Richelle Mead, Shadow Kiss

    Richelle Mead
    “We can't..." he told me.
    "I know," I agreed.

    Then his mouth was on mine again, and this time, I knew there would be no turning back. There were no walls this time. Our bodies wrapped together as he tried to get my coat off, then his shirt, then my shirt. ... It really was a lot like when we'd fought out on the quad earlier-that same passion and heat. I think at the end of the day, the instincts that power fighting and sex aren't so different. They all come from an animal side of us.

    Yet, as more and more clothes came off, it went beyond just animal passion. It was sweet and wonderful at the same time. When I looked into his eyes, I could see without a doubt that he loved me more than anyone else in the world, that I was his salvation, the same way that he was mine. I'd never expected my first time to be in a cabin in the woods, but I realized the place didn't matter. The person did. With someone you loved, you could be anywhere, and it would be incredible. Being in the most luxurious bed in the world wouldn't matter if you were with someone you didn't love.”
    Richelle Mead, Shadow Kiss

    “He sighed and then focused his eyes right on me. It was like drowning, drowning in seas of green. There was nothing in the world except for those eyes.
    "I want to kiss you, Rose," he said softly. "And I want you to want me too.”
    Richelle Mead, Shadow Kiss

    Claudia Gray
    “You’re going to tell me that last night shouldn’t have happened.”
    No. I’m glad it happened. For too long, I’ve been telling myself that I could spend all this time with yo and flirt with you and not have it mean anything. It does mean something. You mean something to me. But I’m not in love with you.”
    Claudia Gray, Stargazer

    “There's one way. Only one. Mine." Balthazar stepped closer, using every inch he had on Lucas, who was tall but not that tall. "Charity is a person. The same as you, the same as me."

    "You and me aren't the same."

    Balthazar cocked his head. "Then let's say the same as Bianca. Will that make you listen?"

    "Bianca's no killer! She didn't have a choice about what she is."

    "Guys, don't do this," I pleaded, but they paid no attention.

    "A choice? You think we all get a choice?" Although Balthazar spoke softly, there was a roughness to his voice I'd never heard before. It sent chills down my spine. "Try being hunted down in the night. Try running as far and as fast as you can and finding out their faster. Try coming to in a stable, with your parents' dead bodies on the ground in front of you, your hands roped above your head and a dozen hungry vampires arguing with each other about who gets you next. See how much choice you have then."

    Lucas just stared at him. Obviously he'd never imagined anything like that; neither had I.

    Even more quietly, Balthazar continued, "Try watching your baby sister die, and then tell me that you wouldn't spend the rest of eternity trying to make up for it. When you've done all that, Lucas, then you can talk to me about choices. Until that time, tell me what I need to know and then shut your mouth.”
    Claudia Gray, Stargazer

    “He murmers into my hair, "Forget what I said earlier, let's stick with this, I might not survive anything more." I laugh. Then he jumps up, finds my wrists, and pins them over my head. "Yeah, right. Totally joking, I want to do everything with you, whenever you're ready, I'm the one, promise?" He's above me, batting and grinning like a total hooplehead.
    "I promise," I say.
    "Good. Glad that's decided." He raises an eyebrow. "I'm going to deflower you, John Lennon.”
    Jandy Nelson, The Sky Is Everywhere

    “This is where you belong, Calla.” He pulled me closer, tilting my chin up. “Be with me. Tell me it’s what you want.”
    I couldn’t tear my eyes from his. “What I want?”
    “Yes. Anything, everything you need, I’ll give you. Always. I promise. Just tell me one thing.”
    “What?”
    “That you want this, us.” His voice dropped so low I could barely hear him. “That someday you’ll love me.”
    My hands began to tremble where they rested around his neck. “Ren, you know we’re going to be together. We’ve both known that for a long time.”
    He gave me a hard look. “That’s not what I’m talking about.”
    “Why are you asking me this?” I tried to pull back, but he held me against him.
    The glimmer of a smile appeared on his lips. “Why not?”
    My temper flared. “Are you trying to say that you love me?”
    I meant it as a challenge rather than a serious question, but his eyes seemed to catch fire.
    “What do you think?” He touched his lips to mine, softly at first, gradually building pressure, parting them.”
    Andrea Cremer, Nightshade

    “The way you move is incredible.” Ren drew me back to press against him. His fingers slid down to the curve of my hips, rocking our bodies in rhythm with the heavy bass. The sensation of being molded against the hard narrow line of his hips threatened to overwhelm me. We were hidden in the mass of people, right? The Keepers couldn’t see?
    I tried to steady my breath as Ren kept us locked together in the excruciatingly slow pulse of the music. I closed my eyes and leaned back into his body; his fingers kneaded my hips, caressed my stomach. God, it felt good.
    My lips parted and the misty veil slipped between them, playing along my tongue. The taste of flower buds about to burst into bloom filled my mouth. Suddenly I wanted nothing more than to melt into Ren. The surge of desire terrified me. I had no idea if the compulsion to draw him more tightly around my body emerged from my own heart or from the succubi’s spellcraft. This couldn’t happen!
    I started to panic when he bent his head, pressing his lips against my neck. My eyes fluttered and I struggled to focus despite the suffocating heat that pressed down all around me. His sharpened canines traced my skin, scratching but not breaking the surface. My body quaked and I pivoted in his arms, pushing against his chest, making space between us.
    “I’m a fighter, not a lover,” I gasped.
    “You can’t be both?” His smile made my knees buckle.”
    Andrea Cremer, Nightshade

    “What are you doing?” I tried to pull away, but his hand slipped from my hair to cup the nape of my neck.
    When he whispered, his warm breath brushed over my lips. “Just let me kiss you, Calla. You don’t know how long I’ve wanted to. No one has to know.”
    My lips parted as I drew a sudden, startled breath and in that instant his mouth was on mine, soft as velvet. I closed my eyes against the rush of a hundred wings that suddenly beat in my chest and soared through my body.
    His scent was all around me. Leather, sandalwood, bonfires in autumn. He pulled back, but only for the sake of moving his lips to trail over my neck.
    My blood was on fire and I was shaking. Is this really happening?
    I couldn’t stop thinking about Shay in the clearing. About asking him to kiss me. The electric touch of his lips on mine.
    But this is where I belong. I tried to push the memories back.
    Ren stroked my knee, his fingers wandering up my thigh, sliding beneath the hem of my dress.
    I grabbed his wrist. “Wait.”
    He didn’t free his arm from my grasp but continued kissing my collar bone.
    “Let’s skip the waiting part,” he murmured into my skin.”
    Andrea Cremer, Nightshade

    “What’s three?” I asked, hoping to move away from this uncomfortable topic.
    The smile pulled at his lips again.
    “Three.” One of his hands cupped my face and the other slid around my back. He pulled my body against his and my heart began to pound. I took advantage of my free hand and pushed at his chest.
    “I don’t think so, Lily,” he said. “If you want to get rid of me, you’ll need to do better than that.”
    I drew a sharp breath and tried to wiggle away, but he held me firmly in place, watching me struggle. He grinned as he lifted me up onto the sink.
    “What are you doing?” I started to panic. “Someone could come in!”
    “If they see us, they’ll just turn around and get out of here,” he murmured, lips touching my ear. “No one crosses me.”
    His hips pressed against my knees, opening them, pushing my skirt up my legs. I gripped his shirt, clinging to him so I wouldn’t fall into the sink. His hand pushed into my lower back. I gasped as his body fitted against mine.
    Heat flooded my chest, my pelvis. I thought I would drown in it.
    “We can’t—” His lips stopped my words. The kiss just made me dizzier. I dug my fingers into his shoulders.
    “You said you didn’t want to be left alone.” His tongue flicked over my cheekbone. “This is me pestering you.”
    “Aren’t you breaking the rules?” I could barely get the words out. “What about the union?”
    “I’d rather have you on my own terms.” His hand slipped between my thighs.
    All strength fled my limbs. “I can’t breathe.”
    “That means you like it.” He kissed me again.”
    Andrea Cremer, Nightshade

    “First:
    "Wesley Rush doesn’t chase girls. They chase him.”

    Then:
    “You’re right. Wesley Rush doesn’t chase girls, and I’m not chasing you”

    But in the end:
    "Wesley Rush doesn’t chase girls, but I’m chasing you" ♥”

    “Wesley Rush was the most disgusting womanizing playboy to ever darken the doorstep of Hamilton High… but he was kind of hot. Maybe if you could put him on mute… and cut off his hands… maybe—just maybe—he’d be tolerable then. Otherwise, he was a real piece of shit. Horn dog shit.”

    “You're a disgusting, shallow, womanizing jackass, and I hope that soda stains your preppy little shirt." Just before I marched away, i looked over my shoulder and added, "And my name isn't Duffy. it's Bianca. we've been in the same homeroom since middle school, you selfabsorbed son of a bitch.”

    “His forehead bumped softly against mine, his brilliant silver gaze searing into me. “I plan to keep you, from everyone, for as long as I’m alive. That includes Puck, the false king, and anyone else who would take you away.” One corner of his mouth quirked, as I struggled to catch my breath under his powerful scrutiny. “I guess I should’ve warned you that I have a slight possessive streak.”

    “You're kind of blind, you know?" Puck whispered, smiling to soften his words. "I wouldn't defy Oberon for just anyone. But, for you..." He leaned forward, touching his forehead to mine. "I'd come back from the dead for you.”
