That’s What HE Said Thursday is a weekly book meme as hosted by Chapter Break. Every Thursday post a favourite line from your book boyfriend to his heroine. A piece of dialogue direct from a book and not a description of the male in question.
Zarek of Moesia. He’s gone through a lot in his centuries of living, he didn’t think he’d ever find love or happiness but he does and he’s such a sweetie! The below quotes are from Dance With the Devil by Sherrilyn Kenyon, Zarek is one of my favourite characters from the Dark-Hunter series – he’s overcome a lot in the face of adversity, he’s maintained most of his sanity despite being banished to Alaska with no company or provisions.
The first quote is not something Zarek says to Astrid per se but it is about her and it’s a beautiful quote. The second is said to Astrid while they lounge on a beach for the first time in Zarek’s life.
“I have found my star. She is beauty and grace. Elegance and goodness. My laughter in winter. She is courageous and strong. Bold and tempting. Unlike any other in all the universe, and I cannot touch her. I dare not even try.”
“Even if I were lying on the sun itself, I would be freezing there without you.”
