How the mighty have fallen!
Once a sworn enemy of all monsters, Anita is now the human consort of both Jean-Claude, the Master Vampire, and Micah, the leopard shape-shifter. Not quite as human as she once was, she is consumed by both their hungers--desires that must be sated time and time again.
And when a centuries-old vampire targets Jean-Claude and his clan, Anita finds herself tested as never before--needing all the dark forces her passion can muster to save the ones she loves the most .. .
“The last time a Master Vamp had come to town and tried to steal me from Jean-Claude, I'd ended up in a coma for a week. Richard had gotten his throat torn out, and Jean-Claude had nearly died for real. Vampires were always either trying to kill me , or own me. God, I hated being popular.”Anita Blake
“Feeling bad sucks, and nausea is one of the great evils of the universe.”Anita Blake
“Neither love nor evil conquers all, but evil cheats more.”Anita Blake
“I stared at Jean-Claude, and it wasn't the beauty of him that made me love him, it was just- him. It was a love made up of a thousand touches, a million conversations, a trillion shared looks. A love made up of danger shared, enemies conquered, a determination to keep the people that depended on us safe at almost any cost, and a certain knowledge that neither of us would change the other, even if we could. I loved Jean-Claude, all of him, because if I took away the Machiavellian plottings, the labyrinth of his mind, it would lessen him, make him someone else.”Anita Blake
“I took a sip from my coffee mug with the motto, "If you slip me decaf, I'll rip your head off." I'd brought it to work when our boss, Bert, had put decaf in the coffeemaker, without telling anyone, thinking we wouldn't notice. Half the office thought they had mono for a week, until we discovered Bert's dastardly plot.”Anita Blake
“I have learned that love can grow without the touch of sex, and that sex does not always lead to love.”Jean Claude
“Let's fool around." "And then?" "When it's time, take blood, and then let's fuck." "Ma petite, you are such a sweet-talker, how can I refuse?”Anita, Jean-Claude
“My usual theory was anybody to be angry at was better than nobody to be angry at. I was trying to be better than that, more fair, but damn, it was hard.”Anita Blake
“Never argue when you're winning.”Anita Blake
