I’d never stood in the sun, never felt the sunshine on my bare skin. But the scent of him made me think of those things.

Portia faltered; Tav's verbal jab had hit a soft spot, one that had been hidden under a sea of distractions for years and had only just begun to harden. She had no witty comeback for someone telling her they didn't want her around. It reinforced what that ugly voice in the back of her head whispered at the most inopportune moments: no one would care if you left and never came back.

Erections and guilt can’t exist in the same plane. One makes way for the other.

“You are your mother’s daughter,” my father said, with not a little pride in it.

“As if the thirty-eight hours of labor didn’t prove it,” my mother said with a smile.

“I recall them well,” my father said flatly. “You were ... very angry.”

“Was it the cursing that tipped you off?”

“And the throwing of many objects,” he said, counting them off on his hands. “And challenging an Apex shifter to a knife fight. And accusing your sister of being a Russian spy. And promising to stake the doctor if you didn’t get drugs.”

“Nonsense. I was a paragon of patience and gentility.”

The kiss...he couldn't regret that. Wouldn't. There would never be another moment in life worth more of a risk. The quiver of her mouth, like her heart was beating so hard it would jump out of her chest. The tentative press of her tongue against his. The hungry way she had clawed at his chest, wanting more. The taste, the connection, the energy. Men has been killed over kisses like that. Careers had been lost. Hearts had been stolen.

“I love you. I am in love with you. I have been for a while. And I know there are limits to what you can give me, and I know you might need time—”

His lips crushed into hers, and he said onto her mouth, dropping words more precious than rubies and emeralds and sapphires into her heart, her soul, “I love you. There is no limit to what I can give to you, no time I need. Even when this world is a forgotten whisper of dust between the stars, I will love you.”

~ Sarah J Maas, Empire of Storms

Each day had a tranquility a timelessness about it so that you wished it would never end. But then the dark skin of the night would peel off and there would be a fresh day waiting for us glossy and colorful as a child's transfer and with the same tinge of unreality.

And that was how Tav had come to know that Portia had a mole on her left shoulder. He also knew the satiny softness of her skin against his fingertips, that she ran rather warm, and how it felt to brush an errant curl away from her neck and see her shiver from his touch. He didn't need to know any of that. Fucking corsets. The devil's garment.

Review: Magic Triumphs by Ilona Andrews

Image
I've just finished devouring Magic Triumphs, the final installment in one of my favourite series. I've been anticipating this book for a long time!

After the jump, I'll explain a bit about why the Kate Daniels series is so special to me and what I think about the way Kate's story ends.

Slowly, his gaze lifted to hers. And she could have sworn that hunger—ravenous hunger—flickered there. ...

“I hadn’t realized the effect would be so...” He shook his head. He took in her face, her hair, the combs. “You look like—”

“A queen?”

“The fire-breathing bitch-queen those bastards claim you are.”

Whatever asshole said that absence made the heart grow fonder was right. Before, I fell for him with a teenager's love, bold and passionate, no real obstacles to overcome, no real consequences to consider. Now, the wind tickling past my legs, I could see the full path of destruction this would cause. I saw it, and in that moment, I didn't care. I wouldn't care. There was right, there was wrong, and there was love. And love trumped it all.

Fans of this series know. When I reread this book, eight electrifying words stole my breath away.



“There you are. I’ve been looking for you.”
