I am a great lover of adult fantasy fiction, as regular readers will know. But I have come to the conclusion that some chapters I have been re-reading of late are not suitable for reading in public!
|The character Eric Northman
as described by protagonist Sookie Stackhouse
Picture me on a train, reading this: ‘Dead to the World’ by Charlaine Harris.
“If there was an international butt competition, Eric would win, hands down – or cheeks up”
This left me laughing softly to my self but it got worse!
“I was so on fire for him I was surprised that flames didn’t flicker out of my fingertips”
“‘Look at me my lover.’ The way he said ‘lover’ was like a caress, like he was calling me by a name no other man had ever used before or ever would after.”
“‘I wish’ I said, ‘I could save orgasms in a jar for when I need them, because I think I had a few extra.”
“Eric wanted me to be looking into his eyes; that obviously flicked his Bic.”
I am sure I was blushing by this point, and looking over my shoulders guilty at my fellow passengers to see if they could see what I was reading.
I love the way this scene never got to pornographic, and was really well written! I am going to start using the term ‘That flicks your Bic’ – love it!
Got any favourite quotes you felt guilty reading in public?? Put them in the comments below; I would love to hear them! [nothing too graphic please!]
