"I could never do that".
She laughed at him. He brought his lips to her ear. "Your scent is like violets early in spring," he whispered. Then he laughed at himself because though it was true, he sounded like the worst kind of fool.” -Under the Never Sky
"I miss you. I miss you. I miss you, I miss you. Be ready, because when I see you, I'll never let you go again”
"Should we try this again?" he asked. Aria smiled. "The right way," she said, and wove her fingers through his. "Together."
And then...his kisses. Can I have one?
“He kissed her slowly. Everything went slowly so he could follow her temper, and search into her eyes. When they joined, her scent was brave and strong and certain. Perry took it into himself, breathing her breath, feeling what she felt. He'd never known anything as right.”
“Without thinking, he reached for her hand. Tucked it against her chest, feeling that was where it should be. Perry's heart slammed against his ribs. She had to feel it.”
“Perry's hand settled on her hip, his grip firm. She felt his kiss settle into something deeper as his mouth moved with more urgency over hers. Suddenly there was more heat between them...”
“His eyes were heavy with desire, but she saw something else. A gleam that made her suspicious.
"What?" she asked.
His hand slid to her hips. "You're incredible."
"That's not what you were thinking."
"Was so. I always think that." He leaned in, twisting a strand of her hair around his finger as he kissed her bottom lip.
When the heck do I get to be Aria?
"He smiled and leaned down, kissing her softly, tenderly. She knew she should step away. This was a risk, but she didn't care about anything except him just then. She wove her arms around his neck and parted his lips with hers, stealing a taste of him. Tenderness could wait for another time. Perry went still for an instant; then he cinched her close, momentum sending them thudding into the door behind him. He sank against it, bringing himself closer to her height, kissing her with a sudden urgency. With a hunger she matched. His lips moved to her neck, trailed up to her ear, and the world fell away."
"There are other things I'd rather do when I'm alone with you."
Mmmmm. Perry is definitely the swooniest. Oh, but don't only take my word.
[I love him] because he is my baby. Or is he my baby because I love him? Hmmm-Ananbelle
Bows and arrows and blonds, oh my! Perry is my ideal male protagonist and swoony hero because he is survival strong :)-Alyssa
He is an awesome, protective sexy beast.-Tahereh
You broke me in half when you left sweet Perry-Ammie
SO OMG GO VOTE FOR PERRY
Don't let the leather jacket and Harley fool you, Torin St. James is a total romantic.
Though he is a stickler for rules, he bends them when an important person in his life needs him. He saved Raine when he wasn’t supposed to, yet was willing to give her up so she could lead a normal life with her parents. This showed how he is willing to put others before himself. Another example of self-sacrifice is when he made a deal to work for the meanest deities if they’d spare Raine. As you can see, once he has let you in, you’ll see that his bad ass front is just that, a front. He is truly a person that is worth being friends with.
I turned and gave her my most charming smile. The one that often got me play with women of all ages. “Okay, Raine with an E, what do I have to do to make you play nice?”
-Harley-riding, leather-jacket-wearing sexy
-He’s a powerful Valkyrie
-He’s loyal and willing to sacrifice himself for those he loves
If you haven't yet read Runes, this amazing first book in a new series dealing with the Norse Pantheon, I highly suggest you do. In the meantime, vote for Torin!
