Kyraryker’s quotes

"She thought it over, but couldn’t see any immediate loopholes other than the threat of her inner slut emerging, and she could darned well control that little bitch."— Susan Elizabeth Phillips

Compelling "unlikable" characters

The Young Blood (No Better Angels Book 4) - Erin Satie

"If someone here is rude to you, then look at me."
Look at me. Because she would see what she always did: admiration, approval, desire.
"Look at me," Kingston repeated, "because I will remind you of the truth."

Such complex characters with nuanced story telling. A true rake and an "unlikeable" heroine, who managed to come together in such a compelling way. Definitely going back to start at the beginning of this series; writing that escapes the usual historical romance mold.
