Richelle Mead
“I’d said it before and meant it: Alive or undead, the love of my life was a badass.”
Richelle Mead, Blood Promise

Richelle Mead
“Okay, God, I thought. Get me out of this and I’ll stop my half-assed church-going ways. You got me past a pack of Strigoi tonight. I mean, trapping that one between the doors really shouldn't have worked, so clearly you're on board. Let me get out of here, and I’ll...I don’t know. Donate Adrian’s money to the poor. Get baptized. Join a convent. Well, no. Not that last one.”
Richelle Mead, Blood Promise

“Please, touch me, I pray.”
Jess C Scott, The Intern

“Anya looked upon Nin admirably. Having him as a partner-in-crime—if only on this one occasion, which she hoped would only be the start of something more—was more revitalizing than the cheap thrills of a cookie-cutter shallow, superficial romance, where the top priority was how beautiful a person was on the outside.”
Jess C Scott, The Other Side of Life

Lauren Hammond
“As our kissing progresses, I don’t care that our tryst seems raunchy and wrong. I don’t care that I’m at school, in the boy’s bathroom. I don’t care that to most people this would seem cheap, dirty, and despicable. The only thing I can think about while he kisses me deeper, harder, faster, is that Henry Garner is the plague and the only thing I want him to do is infect me.”
Lauren Hammond, He Loves Me...He Loves You Not...

Lauren Hammond
“Then his lips caress mine. It’s only a brush, but the warmth overheats every part of me. Leaning back, my elbow bumps into the power button on the dryer and the old appliance starts moving. Spinning. Spinning like my head. Like my heart.”
Lauren Hammond, He Loves Me...He Loves You Not...

Lauren Hammond
“My hands are in his hair and his arms wrap around my waist tighter. I know what Henry does to me. I’m space bound. A rocket about to blast off. And I want Henry to send me to the moon.”
Lauren Hammond, He Loves Me...He Loves You Not...

Jaime Reed
“I’d have to prove to everyone, including Ellia, that I was more than some guy she used to know, that what we shared had and still mattered. She may have forgotten the promise we made on the beach, but I hadn’t, and it was up to me to backup those words with action. Memories and ghosts were for the dead. Living things moved, and I was never one to stand still." ~Liam”
Jaime Reed, Keep Me In Mind

Rusty Fischer
“Some sample lyrics I think I catch: "My engine races up to seventh gear; wrap your legs around my engine, dear . . . . The tunnel's dark, but the ground is wet; I lubricate it with my dripping sweat!"
Or, something vaguely disturbing and gross like that; it's hard to tell with the wailing guitars and the front man screaming through his ravaged vocal chords.”
Rusty Fischer, Becca Bloom and the Drumsticks of Doom: A Heavy Metal Love Story

Rusty Fischer
“He's reading a book called Great Warlocks of the 18th Century, and to get this ball rolling before Dean Devlin shows up and rains on our private parade, I snort and ask, "Good book?"
I forget I'm pretending to be sitting behind my two-thousand-ninety-eight-page Highlights of Modern Chemistry book, so he snorts back. "Better than yours.”
Rusty Fischer, Becca Bloom and the Drumsticks of Doom: A Heavy Metal Love Story

Jaime Reed
“She was my go-to person. I’d tell her everything. Now, all of those late-night phone calls, all the sleepovers at her house because I couldn’t deal with stuff at home, all the crying on her shoulder. It’s all gone. It’s like if she doesn’t know, then it didn’t happen, and if it didn’t happen then what exactly am I holding on to?” ~Stacey”
Jaime Reed, Keep Me In Mind

Claire Chilton

Ashley Earley
“It feels like someone is gripping my heart and twisting it. It feels like I can't breathe. I shut my eyes tightly against the memory that is threatening to surface. I can't breathe.
Can't breathe. Can't breathe!
Ashley Earley, Alone in Paris

Shawn Kirsten Maravel
“Joel sat back in his chair and laughed at what seemed to be an inside joke, one in which I wanted very much to be let in on. An amiable smile stretched across his lips quoted by perfect dimples. I stared at him wanting nothing more than to indulge myself in that smile.”
Shawn Kirsten Maravel, Volition

Shawn Stewart Ruff
“Kids without dads are desperate and jealous. Those with dads can be uppity and sharp.”

“If you had watched any of those three wonderful films, you would have caught Vampire Gym Teacher # 2: Back to Cruel, where the vampire hunter ties a vampire chick to the shower and tortures her by turning on the water. They can‟t stand water, even if it‟s not holy water.”
Rusty Fischer, Ushers, Inc.

Sully Tarnish
“A female dragon’s tail is of the utmost importance to her. Male dragons find them irresistible. After all where do you think the term ‘Getting some tail’ came from?”
Sully Tarnish, The Dragon and the Apprentice: A Wizard's Wager

Jaime Reed
“It’s like returning to a familiar room and noticing objects had been moved while you were gone—a chair here, a picture frame there. Items that were once brand new were suddenly broken in and worn from age. It was all very subtle, but enough to suspect paranormal activity or a cruel practical joke. When no one else saw what you saw, the freak factor really kicked in, because you were singled out and left questioning reality." ~Ellia”
Jaime Reed, Keep Me In Mind

Sonal Panse
“I need to read that,” said the busker, his grin widening. “Looks like something I might enjoy.”

“It’s a romance for women,” I said, curtly.

“That makes it not safe for men or something, that’s what you’re telling me? What’s that fellow doing there with her in that case?”
Sonal Panse, The Sunshine Time - Season 1 Episode 14

Samantha Lee Churcher
“The light was luminescence and gloom, like the sky at midnight speckled with stars. All she could smell was the ocean...”
Samantha Lee Churcher, Caw

Sonal Panse
“Sanne intervened to ask the title of my book, and Isolde said, scathingly, “'Love on the Infinity Express'. That sounds like the next big brainy best-seller, doesn't it?”

“Sounds like total hand-holding all the way from Samanbar to Alsalem,” said Arriana. “Dear Lea, no, that title won't do. Couldn't you come up with something more jazzy? Like 'The Dashing Soldier Boy's Ravishing Desire'? And, yes, come up with a titillating cover too, alright? Bare breasts, male and female, with a fuchsia color scheme is the way to go.”
Sonal Panse, The Sunshine Time - Season 1 Episode 10

Sonal Panse
“If you think it's charming to be overbearing,” I said.

“I do, I do!” she said. “I adore strong alpha males and he's the only one that's ever managed to make me feel weak and womanly.” She grinned at my expression. “Want a word of advice?” she said. “Study him. Seriously. Characters like him drive half the romance market.”
Sonal Panse, The Sunshine Time - Season 1 Episode 9

Sonal Panse
“The little runt is my little brother. The baby son of my mother there. Try and be a little respectful.”

“Gawd, Auntie, of course, I didn't mean any disrespect!” said Declan, turning at once to Mum. “You can't think that! Why, I love that little sod like he was a pest from my own home infestation.”
Sonal Panse, The Sunshine Time - Season 1 Episode 8

“Who’s it?” said Conor Larkin, appearing in the adjoining balcony, followed by Ricky and Jason.

“The Turtle from the Train Station,” said Guy.

Right, I thought, that’s the impression I made. He remembers me as an honorary member of the reptile family.”
Sonal Panse, The Sunshine Time: Season 1 Episode 7

Sonal Panse
“They were about to continue into the sitting room when an ululating Tarzan yell reached us from the rain tree outside.

“What’s that?” said Maia, and looked at me as if I might be somehow responsible.

“What it sounds likes,” I said, before I could stop myself. “The victory cry of the bull ape.”

In the pause that followed, Pa pinched the bridge of his nose, Jason looked strangely offended on his cousin’s behalf, Tavi glared at me, and Mr. Caraindon gave me a look that definitely wasn’t lacking in humor.

“My grandson Guy,” he said to Maia. “He is up in your tree-house.”
Sonal Panse, The Sunshine Time - Season 1 Episode 15

Sonal Panse
“Ger,” he said. “My cousin Ger. Yours too by adoption. Remember him? The one you have yet to meet.”

“What about him?” “Pay attention. I said I can get him to beta read for you.”

“What? Why?”

“Why not? He’s got plenty of practice. His little sister, Bonnie, forces him to beta read all her namby pamby stuff. We can slip your draft into the stack and see what he has to say. Be warned though. He makes Bonnie cry.”

“Does he?”

“Uh-huh. He’s like Pa in that regard. They expect perfection everywhere and they can’t lie their way out of a paper bag when they encounter imperfection. So, won’t be great for your morale or anything, but your draft will get pounded into shape.”
Sonal Panse, The Sunshine Time - Season 1 Episode 15
