A USA TODAY Bestseller
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!
