Favorite Quote Friday #146

Happy Friday!

My online friends may have noticed . . . I had to drop offline for personal reasons this week.  Sorry about that.  I've missed chatting with you all.  But I'm hoping to get back into the swing of things soon.  Until then . . .

USA TODAY's Happy Ever After asked me, Amanda Ashley, and Mandy Baxter to talk favorites from our keeper shelves.  See which three books I choose HERE.  Do they also grace your keeper shelves?

Don't forget to check out my feature in the September/October issue of BTS Book Reviews!  Curious to know what made me want to write paranormal romance?  You'll find out that and more in the interview.  AND enjoy a nice long excerpt of Night Unbound.  :-)

There are only a little over two days left to enter my Night Unbound Blog Tour Giveaway!  Here's what's up for grabs:

1st Prize – 1 Winner
$25 Amazon Gift Card

2nd Prize – 2 Winners
Autographed copy of DARKNESS RISES, tote bag, and swag

3rd Prize – 3 Winners

The giveaway is tour-wide this time, so—if life got in the way and kept you offline as it has me of late—you haven't missed the big giveaway and can still go back and visit the tour stops.

Haven't read Night Unbound yet?  Get some tantalizing excerpts, read some great reviews, and get to know the characters through character interviews and Top Ten Lists.

It's time once more for Favorite Quote Friday!  I've seen several readers and reviewers mention Zach's "Inner Neanderthal," so—for today's selection—I thought I would share a brief excerpt of the scene in Night Unbound in which it is mentioned.  The scene features Zach and Lisette, the hero and heroine:

She smiled and grabbed the vampires’ sticky clothing.  
“What?” Zach asked as he helped.  
“Nothing.  It’s just . . . ”  She straightened.  “I like that you let me be me,” she said with a shrug.  “I like that you think I’m strong.”  
“You are strong.”  
“But you also appreciate my femininity.”  
“I more than appreciate it,” he said with a leer.  
She grinned.  “Yet you aren’t overprotective like my brothers and Seth, all of whom can drive me up the wall sometimes.”  
“Oh, but I am.  I cringe every time a battle arises.  And my inner Neanderthal awakens whenever I think you’re in danger.”  
“Your inner Neanderthal?”  
He nodded.  “I believe you met him when I ordered you to never defy me again.”  
She winked.  “Your inner Neanderthal gave me multiple orgasms.”
I can't wait to see what the future has in store for these two as the series continues.  I just love them together.  :-)

Have a wonderful weekend!
