Let’s begin with links, shall we? First, Chicks and Dicks, where today we have a lovely post by the beautiful and entertaining Amy Lane, entitled “I’m Coming”. It is Orgasm month over there, after all. So we asked, and Amy came.
Second, it’s Saturday Snark at Marie Sexton’s blog, and that’s what motivated me to drag my sorry ass out of bed and post this morning.
This is more snark-ish than actual snark today. Again, it’s from Whitetail Rock, but that’s partly because I’m working on the next in the series, Too Stupid to Live. That leads me to think about Whitetail a lot. It’s also because TSTL is about Sam, and this particular scene is a big hint to a major facet of Sam’s inner make-up.
This scene is near the end of Whitetail Rock, and Sam and Nik are discussing Nik’s issues with Jurgen. That leads to this:
Nik put his hands on Sam’s shoulders, looking into his eyes, making sure he had his full attention. “Sam. I’ve got news for you. Not every childhood trauma can be healed by finding the right penis.”
Sam looked devastated. He opened and closed his mouth, eyes wide, then suddenly slumped back against the railing, unable to support himself anymore. “You mean,” his voice was barely a whisper. “All those romance novels lied?”
This is one of my absolute favorite lines in WR!
“All those romance novels lied?”
Thats something I’m STILL trying to accept!
Fortunately, Sam is figuring out that life is both nothing like any of those romance novels, and yet still very romance novel-y. He’s so much fun. 🙂
LOL! OMG! That’s great!
What? They lied? Don’t tell my men!
Oh, honey, I think they might figure it out on their own some day… LOL
Great one Anne!
Thanks, you guys!
