If he were any other man, I might have suspected him of substance abuse, of being coked up or something. But Barrons was too much a purist for that; his drugs were money, power, and control
All my life, up until that moment, I'd had a warm, protective blanket wrapped around me, knitted of aunts and uncles, purled of first and second and third cousins, knot-tied with grandmas and grandpas and greats. That blanket had just dropped from my shoulders. I felt cold, lost and alone.
There are two kinds of people in the world Ms. Lane: those who survive no matter the cost and those who are walking victims.
He wasn't just masculine and sexual, he was carnal in a set-your-teeth-on-edge kind of way; he was almost frightning.
If you are not with me, you are against me. I have no mercy for my enemies.
Barrons had just given me the most carnal, sexually charged hungry look I'd ever seen in my life, and I was pretty sure he didn't even know he had done it.
What the bloody hell are you, Ms. Lane?
He'd surely been spawned by some cataclysmic event of nature, not born.
It's often only in the lies we refuse to speak that any truth can be heard at all.
Basque and Celt. Criminals and barbarians. I didn't think there could be a more primitive pairing of genes.
Woman, you are a thousand kinds of fool.
I began peering into the corners of the room, making sure all the shadows were cast by objects and obeying known laws of physics.
It's what you choose to believe that makes you the person you are.
Beautiful women rarely possess sufficient depth of character to survive without their pretty feathers.
You never knew what you could get away with until you tried.
I don't know about you, but I call impromptu vomiting harm.
Last night you said you wanted to know what to expect so you could better select your attire. I told you we were going to visit a vampire in a Goth-den tonight. Why, then, Ms. Lane, do you look like a perky rainbow?
Being threatened seems to being out the worst in me.
You want to believe in black and white, good and evil, heroes that are truly heroic, villains that are just plain bad, but I've learned in the past year that things are rarely so simple. The good guys can do some truly awful things, and the bad guys can sometimes surprise the heck out of you.
I hammered him with my fists. He just stood and took it. He didn't suffer graciously, he looked pissed off to no end. But he let me hit him. And he didn't hit me back.
Lose the pessimism, Ms. Lane. It's a self-fulfilling prophecy.
Don't accuse me of being morbid when I'm merely the product of a culture that buries the bones of the ones they love in pretty, manicured flower gardens so they can keep them nearby and go talk to them whenever they feel troubled or depressed. That's morbid. Not to mention bizarre. Dogs bury bones, too.
You, Ms. Lane, are a menace to others! A walking, talking catastrophe in pink!
I said breathe. Not do a fish-out of-water imitation.
Movies tell you what to think. A good book lets you choose a few thoughts for yourself. Movies show you the pink house. A good book tells you there's a pink house and lets you paint some of the finishing touches, maybe choose the roof style, park your own car out front.
Even now, my back was still arched with sensual invitation, my bottom was questing up like a cat in heat, and my every move was supple, sinuous. I was one great big come-hither.
I was a twenty-two-year-old single white female alone in a strange country where my sister had been killed.
My philosophy is pretty simple û any day nobodyÆs trying to kill me is a good day in my book.
Gazelles didn't lie down with lions, at least not unbloodied and alive.
I wondered what one wore to visit a vampire. The chic red sweater set didn't go so well with my darker hair, and I was afraid it might be construed as a flirtatious invitation to color me bloodier.
