N.D. Jones
“My teeth ache, my gums hurt, and my cat is tearing me apart, wanting you in every way imaginable. Your body. Your magic. Your fire spirit. Your blood.”
N.D. Jones, Of Beasts and Bonds

J.D. Mason
“Guilt doesn't follow the rules of time. Most things fade with time, regret, eyesight, memories. But guilt feeds on time, and as it feeds, it grows, and when it runs out of time, it begins to gnaw on the guilty.”
J.D. Mason, Drop Dead, Gorgeous
