He said what? Romance Writers Weekly -9/1/2015 (#amwriting #lovewritechat #romance @WiccanHaus)
Good afternoon! If you're hopping over from Brenda Margriet, relax and enjoy my offering! If you missed her, head on back!
It's Sept 1st and the lovely Jeanne McDonald wants to know: What is one of your favorite quotes from your book(s). Explain the reason why it's your favorite and its significance to the story and characters
I'm sharing quotes from two of my soon-to-be-released novellas in the Wiccan Haus series.
Guarding His Heart: Trevor Greene is a highly secretive shifter whose innate ability to cloak himself makes him an ideal bodyguard. This quote is really his thought, internal dialog, but it's how he feels about Cassidy Sinclair.
Sick, that’s what he was. Wanting to sink into his charge’s first grade teacher. Sweep all the papers and take her on top of her desk. Or the floor. Anywhere. It was so fucking hard—all pun intended, he thought grimly—to watch her interact so sweetly and innocently with those little children and want her with an intensity he couldn’t explain or escape.
This quote illustrates the instantaneous, undeniable connection Trevor felt for his charge's teacher. Always within arm's reach, yet untouchable. And the incongruous idea of a sexy first grade teacher, you know? Most of the early elementary school teachers I know have the seasonal sweaters, aprons with markers and crayons and occasionally wear Dr. Seuss t-shirts.
From Sorcerer's Legacy, Ian Branson, descendent of Myrddin the Sorcerer, believes his duty precludes passion in his life. Librarian Becca Jones challenges the wall around his heart. This quote is from Sarka Rowan, alchemist and eldest sibling owner of Wiccan Haus, when he is forced to seek her help.
“You know, Spock was half human and half Vulcan. Like Myrddin in the legend who was sired by a demon and human woman.” Her eyes narrowed. “Is that what you’re afraid of, Ian? Letting your emotions out to play will turn you evil?”
I love this quote because it reveals an uncharacteristic understanding of my hero by a typically unsympathetic acid-tongued alchemist. And it's a reference to Star Trek.
I'm so glad you dropped by. I'd love your take on my choices of quotes. Leave me a comment. Now it's time to head on over to A.S. Fenichel's blog for her fantastic writing.

Thanks. A quiet man with strong feelings. My kind of hero!

Wow, that's some good stuff there. I'm intrigued.

Loved them both, but the first one had my eyebrows right up to my hairline. So well done

Thanks. Forbidden fruit is always sweetest.

That's a tough one to choose, with both of them great in their own ways. I like the twist in the second one, where emotions can make one evil. Not something normally associate with emotions.

Myrddin (upon whom the Merlin myth is based) was reputedly sired by a demon so there's always that fear that evil still runs in the blood.

You had me at Spock. :) emotional turmoil at its best. And I agree, that first quote - HOT!
