So we have twenty-four hours to keep out of trouble,’ he says to me.

Heather Jensen

I wanted to apologize but what could I say? I’m sorry but I’m afraid my fangs might freak you out. Oh and by the way my eyes sort of glow in the dark when I get excited. I hope you’re cool with that.

“I’m just going to say her name,” he said.

Three. I had just made my first, second, and third kill. Before I had even obtained my mage’s robes. I bent over and vomited into the grass. There was no pride, no justice, just the appalling sense that I had lost my innocence. That I was a monster.

Rachel E. Carter

He was a prince. There was no hope in saying yes to the boy with the garnet eyes who left me reckless and confused at every turn. There was no future with him. None. Darren had duty. To the Crown. Gods only knew Priscilla and Blayne had spent enough time reminding me of that.

Someday, Ry, you are going to realize who Darren really is. He’s a prince, and he’s only going to break your heart.

So what were we?

Rachel E. Carter

Anything for Byron’s least favorite apprentice. It’s the least I can do since you took over my torch.

Rachel E. Carter

Love Darren? Of course not. Love is for fools not smart enough to see the path in front of them. That’s the difference between you and I, Ryiah. I see the truth and accept Darren for what he is. You just see what you want to see. It’s why I will wear the crown and bear his children while you are left wondering why you were never good enough.

So how did you do it? What makes the cold-hearted princeling mortal like the rest of us?

MacKenzie grinned at Mim. "They love the modern appliances."

"Defiance really has a thing for the vacuum cleaner," MacKenzie agreed in a secretive whisper.

"If he ever has kids, he'll probably name the first one Hoover," Havoc snickered.

I didn't want to go to hell, but even the idea of reclaining my halo scared me because it would mean leaving Aly.

Lani Wendt Young

Excuse me? You're the one who was out to mislead me with your alluring bimbo slinkiness! What if I had believed your act last night? What if I had fallen deeply and madly in love with you? You would have had the blood of my love-sickness on your hands, Leila Folger.
