“I'm William, but you can call me Sexy. Everyone does.”
Gena Showalter, The Darkest Kiss

Gena Showalter
“He’s a love-’em-and-leave-’em kind of guy. And though he’s not a Lord, he does have a curse hanging over his head. I have the book to prove it.”
William growled low in his throat. “Anya! Must you share my secrets with everyone?” He flattened his palms on the arms of his chair. “Fine. If you can spill, I can, too. Anya’s the reason the Titanic sank. She was playing chicken with the icebergs.”
Scowling, Anya anchored her hands on her hips. “William had a bronze made of his penis and placed it on his mantel.”
Gena Showalter, The Darkest Whisper

Cassandra Clare
“She hated that will had this effect on her. Hated it. She knew better. She knew what he thought of her. That she was worth nothing. And still a look from him could make her tremble with mingled hatred and longing. It was like poison in her blood, to which Jem was the only antidote.”
Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Prince

Gena Showalter

William Shakespeare

W.B. Yeats
“An Irish Airman foresees his Death

I Know that I shall meet my fate
Somewhere among the clouds above;
Those that I fight I do not hate
Those that I guard I do not love,
My country is Kiltartan Cross,
My countrymen Kiltartan’s poor,
No likely end could bring them loss
Or leave them happier than before.
Nor law, nor duty bade me fight,
Nor public man, nor cheering crowds,
A lonely impulse of delight
Drove to this tumult in the clouds;
I balanced all, brought all to mind,
The years to come seemed waste of breath,
A waste of breath the years behind
In balance with this life, this death.”
William Butler Yeats, The Wild Swans At Coole

Ilona Andrews
“That had to be the craziest thing he'd heard. At some point they must've looked around and said, "Hey, what do we have a shitload of?"
"Mud! It's cold and wet. I know, let's burn it!"
"Well, it ain't good for nothing else."
What the hell? He supposed if fish could have legs, then mud could burn. Spider or nor spider, if their cats started flying, he would be out of here like a rocket.”
Ilona Andrews, Bayou Moon

William Styron
“The pain of severe depression is quite unimaginable to those who have not suffered it, and it kills in many instances because its anguish can no longer be borne.”
William Styron

Jessica Therrien, Oppression

Ilona Andrews
“Cough clenched, and vomited something chunky into the grass.
The big dog sat on his haunches and looked at William with a perplexed expression on his face.
"Well, eat it back up," William hissed. "Don't waste it."
Cough gave a tiny whine.
"I'm not eating your puke."
Cough panted at him.
Ilona Andrews, Bayou Moon

Ilona Andrews
“How is it different?"
He rolled his head back, sable hair falling down on his shoulders. "With Rose I knew what to say. I could take a step back and talk to her. I remembered all the crap from the magaznies. It was easy."
"And with me, it's hard?" Why? Because she was a swamp girl? And how did the magazines fit into it?
William looked away from her. "I don't like it when you're away. If I don't see you, I can't settle down. If I see you talking with another man, I want to claw his throat out. And none of the things you're supposed to say fit."
Oh, this had to be good. "What sort of things?"
He sighed. "The lines. Like, 'You're my everything,' or 'Did it hurt when you fell from heaven?”
Ilona Andrews, Bayou Moon

Gena Showalter
“William: What are you looking for in a woman?

Reyes: I’ve found my angel, Danika. She’s all I need.

William: Really? That’s, like, weird to me. Men should need many girls. No one girl should be so important.

Reyes: How sad for you.

William: I’m not sad. You’re sad!

Reyes: Why are you so defensive about this?

William: Let’s move on. Favorite outfit?

Reyes: First, you said girls rather than women. Why is that, I wonder? Because you care about one girl in particular? Anyway, clothes are clothes. I don’t have any favorites.

William: Go to hell. I care about no one and I’m proud to admit that! Favorite moment in the series so far?

Reyes: The first time Danika looked at me with trust and acceptance in her eyes. I’m still reeling.

William: And just so you know, girl was a slip of the tongue. Now. Least favorite moment in the series?

Reyes: Every time I had to kill Maddox.

William: Really? That would have been my favorite. Anyway, hobbies?

Reyes: Do you really have to ask? Yes? Fine. Cutting myself. I’ve started to draw shapes. Like hearts.

William: You actually admitted that aloud. [snicker]


Reyes: Happy for the first time in what seems an eternity.

William: Not that you deserve it. Really, I didn’t say girl for any particular reason. So what do you think of the fact that your home has been invaded by women?

Reyes: As long as I have Danika, I don’t care who lives with us.

William: Who do you think is the smartest Lord?

Reyes: Me. Look who I picked to spend eternity with.

William: I think you’re the dumbest! Seriously, girl was meant to encompass everyone old enough to be bedded by me. Now, if you knew you only had twenty-four hours before the Hunters found Pandora’s box and killed you, what would you do in the time you had left to live?

Reyes: Not even death can keep me away from my angel. I would find a way to change such a fate. Again.

William: What kind of underwear are you wearing?

Note from William: Bastard flipped me off and left.

Final thoughts from William: Reyes’s thoughts about me and my slip of the tongue were ridiculous and unfounded!

Gena Showalter, Into the Dark

Ilona Andrews
“Some women waited for a night in shining armor. She, apparently, had ended up with a knight in black jeans and leather, who wanted to chase her down and have his evil way with her.”
Ilona Andrews, Bayou Moon

Ilona Andrews
“It depends. If I don't let you in, will you huff and puff and blow my house down?"
She had no idea. "I'm more of a kick the door open and cut everyone inside to ribbons kind of wolf.”
Ilona Andrews, Bayou Moon

Ilona Andrews
“You said he was a soldier. You don't suppose...?"
"Oh, Gods." Ignata blinked. "You think something could be wrong down there?"
All of them looked at William, who chose this precise moment to slide the wet shirt back on his back, which required him to flex, raising his arms.
"That would be a shame," Cerise murmured.”
Ilona Andrews, Bayou Moon

Ilona Andrews
“He had the prettiest hair she had ever seen on a man: dark brown, almost black, and soft like sable, it fell down to his shoulders. She wondered what he'd do if she threw some mud in it. Probably kill her.”
Ilona Andrews, Bayou Moon

William Shakespeare
“La vida es mi tortura y la muerte será mi descanso.”
William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet

Sylvain Reynard
“You are my greatest virtue and my deepest vice.”
Sylvain Reynard, The Raven

Gena Showalter
“William: What do you think of the fact that your home has been invaded by women?

Maddox: I couldn’t be more pleased, as long as none of them does something to hurt Ashlyn. And I take full credit for starting the trend.”
Gena Showalter, Into the Dark

Ilona Andrews
“You say the sweetest things. And that spaghetti perfume you're wearing is to die for. No hobo could resist."
She snarled. Heh.”
Ilona Andrews, Bayou Moon

Ilona Andrews
“She surveyed the carnage behind him. "Did you have fun?"
He showed her his teeth. "Yes.”
Ilona Andrews, Bayou Moon

Ilona Andrews
“A tall blonde entered the room, wearing a yellow sash that marked her as advocate. Two men followed her, carrying papers. She was lean and long-legged, with a graceful neck and nice ankles, and William took a minute to watch her come down the aisle. She looked high-strung and difficult. Still, good legs.
Mmm, smelled of mimosa, too. Expensive scent. Cerise smelled better, when clean.”
Ilona Andrews, Bayou Moon

Ilona Andrews
“William's eyes glowed like two amber coals. She met his gaze and flinched. No emotion reflected in the amber, only intelligence, cruel in a way the eyes of a hunting Mire cat were cruel. She saw no worry, no softness, no thoughts at all, only waiting. He seemed barely human now, not a man but some feral thing, knitted of darkness and biding his time for an opportunity to pounce.”
Ilona Andrews, Bayou Moon

Judith James
“He spoke to her, though, if only through his verse. One night in the banqueting hall, just before a ball, he responded to requests for a verse by raising his glass high. Though he spoke to them all his eyes were on her.

"Tis not that I am weary grown
Of being yours, and yours alone,
But with what face can I incline
To damn you to be only mine?"

She walked out before she heard the rest.”
Judith James, Libertine's Kiss

Tate Hallaway
“The skanky vamp biting for bucks on the dark end of state street is your ex boyfriend?" William asked. The look on William's face implied he hoped I washed after interacting with Parrish”
Tate Hallaway, Tall, Dark & Dead

Judith James
“He groaned and leaned his forehead against hers, “You drive me mad, Elizabeth. I dream I am holding you every night. I wake in a sweat, aching and disappointed. Dreams of you have replaced my nightmares, but they leave me empty and restless and my body on fire. I can't even remember why we argued. I don't care how things went wrong.”
Judith James, Libertine's Kiss

Judith James
“You missed a fine opportunity there."

Her heart raced as she whirled around. The hoarse voice was William's. He stood behind her, somewhat worse the wear for drink. He was pale in the moonlight, his hair a dark halo, hard eyes glittering with some inner fire.

"What do you want, William?"

"I want you.”
Judith James, Libertine's Kiss
