I love the Mercy Thompson series by Patricia Briggs, love love love it. Have I mentioned that I love it? :D This is from Bone Crossed, book number four. Mercy and her fiance Adam, a werewolf alpha, are talking on the phone.
ROWWWR! Have you read this series yet? It's AWESOME!"Ghosts and cats, Bran says," I told him, "But my cat likes Stefan.""Your cat likes anyone she can convince to pet her." Something about the way he said it-a caress in his voice-made me suspicious. I listened carefully and heard it, a faint purr.
"She likes you anyway," I said. "How'd she talk you into letting her into your house again?"
"She yowled at the back door." He sounded sheepish. I'd never seen or heard of a cat that would associate with werewolves or coyotes until Medea announced her presence at the door of my shop. Dogs will-and so will most livestock-but not cats. Medea loves anyone who will pet her...or has the potential to pet her. Not unlike some people I know.
"She's playing you and Samuel off each other," I informed him. "and you, my dear sir, have succumbed to her wiles."
"My mother warned me about succumbing," he said meekly. "You'll have to save me from myself. When I have you to pet, I won't need her."
