Here are some of my favourite quotes from my recent read:
Naked Werewolf #2: The Art of Seducing a Naked Werewolf (Click title for review)
Be warned...there are spoilers in here.
1. “Oh, I’m suppose to just overlook that he’s trying to expose my entire species because he’s got a pretty face?” I said quietly. “That’s sexist. As a matter of fact, the idea that he’s trying to exploit innocent furred people instead of modeling for underwear ads—the way God obviously intended—is reason enough to kill him.”
2. Faced with my mental tormentor, the interrupter of sleep, and his head-clouding scent, I’d expected to feel awkward and bashful again. But mostly, I felt anger. Sweet, clarifying anger.
3. He seemed honestly insulted, frowning up at me and pouting those soft-looking, pouty, full, pouty lips…and there went my train of thought…
4. “You cannot invite a man into your home just because he calls you ma’am,” I reminded her.
“What if he has eyes the color of the morning sky and a butt that won’t quit?” she whispered.
5. “So, that guy in there, Clay,” he asked, jerking his head toward the door. “Are you dating him?”
“Yes, he is my possessive, recently paroled fiancé.”
His lips quirked. “So…no?”
6. She asked, handing me one of the many bathrobes she kept on hand for when I dropped over on a run. She had this thing about not wanting naked people on her upholstery. Prude.
7. I cannot explain why the “professor” tone he used while passionately extolling the virtues of geek porn sent tingles to my special places. All I knew was that I was having a hard time staying on my side of the couch.
8. Cooper came ambling out of the bedroom, looping his tie around his collar.
The coward turned on his heel and walked into the kitchen as if he hadn’t seen me getting frogmarched by the estrogen squad.
“Hey! Don’t act like you don’t hear me! Seriously! Remember that time I hid salmon in your truck and it stank for a month? Child’s play! My revenge will be swift and terrible. Damn it, Cooper!” I yelled as they dragged me into their den of girliness.
9. Every once in a while, I’d bury my face in the talcum-power-scented fluff on her head and have a little “maybe I am ready for a baby” twinge. And then I would slap myself. Because my smart-ass karma combined with my genes might create some sort of evil superbaby. I just wasn’t ready. Imagine baby-proofing for that!
10. “So, um Mags, would you mind telling me why you’re here at this hour? Without going into specifics, please?”
“Nick and I are putting on a puppet show, Coop,” I responded dryly.
“Please, Lord, don’t let that be a position I haven’t heard of,” Cooper said, shuddering.
11. “I’m not leaving you,” he told me. “I don’t care what you try to do to push me away. I don’t care what comes along. I’m here. If you think I’m going to back down now, you’re crazy.”
“So, you’re going to love me out of spite?”
I sighed. “Ah, spite, the stuff of fairy tales.”
12. “Mom, if you get into the truck right now and we all survive this thing, I will let you plan the wedding, from bottom to top, without any arguments.”
“That’s not funny.”
“I’ll even let you do that stupid white-dove-release thing.”
Her eyes narrowed at me.
“Well played, Margaret.”
