Richelle Mead, Storm Born

“Eugenie, my sweet, your outraged protests are adorable, but they only continue to slow us down. If you want me to help you, then let me. If you don't, then take me to one of those places where human women wear revealing clothing and quickly lose their virtue through alcohol.”
Richelle Mead, Storm Born

His dark eyes lit up, like he'd just discovered something surprising and delightful. "Is it any weirder than giving chocolate, which is supposed to be an aphrodisiac? Or what about wine? A 'romantic' drink that really just succeeds in lowering the other person's inhibitions."
"Hmmm, It's like people are trying to be both subtle and blatant at the same time. Like, they won't actually go up and say, 'Hey, I like you, lets get together.' Instead, they're like, 'Here, have some plant genitalia and aphrodisiacs.”
Richelle Mead, Storm Born

“You are the most boring teacher ever."
He grinned and gave me a quick kiss on the cheek, just as a knock sounded at the door. "It all depends on what you me to teach you.”
Richelle Mead, Storm Born
“Hey, Volusian, you haven't been checking me out, have you?"

He gave me his trademark bland stare. "I assure you, mistress, the only allure your bare flesh has for me is to remind me how easy it will be to slice open."

I laughed. If not for the fact he was actually serious, he'd be so much fun.”
Richelle Mead, Storm Born
“Funny how someone telling you not to do something can talk you into it.”
Richelle Mead, Storm Born
“Not me. Give me honesty anytime.”

“I’d seen weirder things than a haunted shoe, but not many.”
Richelle Mead, Storm Born

“... History's like that. There are wars, and unfortunately, in the end, who wins and who loses is more important than who's right or wrong.”
Richelle Mead, Storm Born

"Yes. I think in the end, we all are, no matter what the songs and happy stories say. I guess it's just a matter of who we choose to be alone with."

"That's why I come here, you know. To be alone with other people. There's isolation in a crowd. You're hidden. Safe.”
Richelle Mead, Storm Born
“Most aren't trying to kill you, unfortunately. They're trying to bed you, mistress."

"Mistress," she said hastily, "had you asked us if there was a prophecy-"
"Yeah, yeah. I know. What's this one say? That I'm a good lay?”

Richelle Mead, Storm Born
“sometimes I just get so frustrated with games of human attraction.” “How so?” “It’s all masked in posturing and ploys. There’s no honesty. People can’t just come up and express their attraction. It’s got to be cleverly obscured with some stupid pick-up line or not-so-subtle gift, and I don’t really know how to play those games so well. We’re taught that it’s wrong to be honest, like there’s some kind of social stigma with it.”
Richelle Mead, Storm Born
