I'm reading Ilona Andrews' new book, "Clean Sweep", and it has some excellent quotes in it. It's the first book in a new series and so far quite good. I picked several quotes. Dina is an innkeeper and Ryan a werewolf; they don't hit off too well to start with.

I turned and walked back to my bedroom, the balcony door closing softly behind me. Obnoxious smart-ass. Never been anywhere, never done anything, huh. Arrested development, huh. Considering that it was coming from a man who spent his nights peeing on his neighbors' fences, that was rich. Shoot, I should've told him that. Oh well, too late now.

I've never before understood the true meaning of "handsome devil". I knew logically what it meant, but now I saw it in action. Sean was a handsome devil in the flesh: arrogant, dangerous, and hot. I knew he was bad for me, but I had this absurd pull to reach out and touch his face. If he weren't so happy with himself, I might have even considered it.
Caldenia descended down the stairs and saw him. "Ooo, Planning a kinky morning?"
"No, just dealing with a pesky intruder."
"Oh well. If you kill him, do save me his liver. Werewolf liver is a very tender delicacy." She licked her lips. "Especially when sauteed in butter."
"What the hell...?" Sean growled.
"I'll keep that in mind."
Usually they roared their house name at the top of their lungs, trying to intimidate...Oh. They were trying to be inconspicuous. I bit my lip to keep from laughing I'd never had an attempt at intimidation whispered at me before.

If you like urban fantasy mixed with sci fi and humor, give this a shot. It's good. My review will be up on Saturday.

  1. I didn't know that Ilona Andrews had a new book out, I'll have to check it out. I wasn't a fan of the first Kate Daniels novel by this duo, but I think this one is more my style. Love the quotes Bea!

  2. Ahh I so wish I had had time for this one. Kimberly I didn't love that first one in the series either but after that it was amazing.

  3. Those arrogant, dangerous and hot heroes are always bad for us but we still want them.


  4. OMG it's perfect! I can't wait to read it!
