Character Quote from One More Night by Dellani

character-quotes-imageThis should only take a couple hours,” Lex assured me. “But if it doesn’t.” She handed me a business card. “Memorize and destroy the card. Burn, preferably.”

And scatter the ashes,” I suggested.

Lex and Ben stared at me, surprised.

I write novels. Did you think my mind would go anywhere else?”

Character Quotes from Bet on Love by Dellani

character-quotes-imageKitty grinned, order pad at the ready. “So, what are we having for breakfast? Or do you need another minute?” she gazed intently at Zane.

“Gina?”

“I know what she wants. She has the same thing every time.”

“I’ll have what she’s having, then,” Zane said with a smirk as he handed Kitty the menu.

“You don’t know what it is,” Kitty protested.

“Doesn’t matter. Surprise me.” He stared at Gina several seconds, making her blush.

“Okay, one question, though. Hard or soft?”

“Excuse me?” his dark blue eyes flickered over to Kitty.

“Just answer. Hard or soft, I didn’t stutter.”

Zane’s grin spread, quirking up the corner of his mouth. “I’ll go with hard, Kitty, cause that’s how I roll.”

Character Scene from A Little White Lie, A Lone Wolf Tale by Dellani

white lie cover“If you’ve paid any attention to the news vids, you know about the situation on Starflatz,” Greyling said.

All of them knew that there was a major coup going on. No one knew from one moment to the next who controlled the government, but it was swaying more and more into the hands of a radical leader named Aurous Aurialonus. He was a madman who was anti-establishment, anti-Committee and anti-military, although he controlled the current military in Starflatz’s major city, Gundesburg.

“He’s got things in a right mess, I know that,” Ray interjected. “Is he really as nuts as they say?”

Greyling weighed her answer carefully. “No, he’s worse. He’s captured the entire royal family and he plans to kill them off one by one if they don’t acquiesce to his demands.”

“Which are?”

She rolled her eyes heavenward as if saying a silent prayer. “Too bizarre to relate. His message was very garbled and not even our psychology experts can interpret it.”

“Hard to acquiesce then,” Wil added facetiously.

Greyling gave him a withering look before going on. “Rather.”

Character Scene from Wall of Time by Dellani

lone-wolf-frontWall of Time is a prequel to my Lone Wolf Series. It’s not out yet, but it will be! That being said, I like this scene and wanted to share it.

Dressed in bright red leather pants and bustier, the tall blonde sported a long, black leather duster and high, metal heeled, cowboy boots. A powerful handgun rested on her left hip. A whip graced the other.

Wil’s smile grew broader when she came up to him,Shakazhan front standing less than three inches away, her breasts brushing his chest, her hips a whisper from his. Reaching out one leather clad hand, she grabbed his crotch in a very friendly fashion. His right hand held his drink, but his left glided down her arm in a familiar caress, his cyber eye checking her hands and feet for weapons. He found plenty, smiling.

“Hello, Val, how are you?”

“I’m better now, Wil. Good to see you.” Her hand stayed on his crotch, rubbing absently.

The Maker cover front“What brings you to these parts, Val? I thought you were working Vandaran space.”

She shrugged one shoulder casually. “Vandarans are so boring. A bunch of overzealous, religious mooses. Meese?” She rolled her eyes, not caring if she got the right word or not.

“I think plural and singular are the same, moose.”

“Oh, who gives a shit, Wil? Only you would even know something like that.” She took a sip of his drink, licking her lips seductively.

“Which is part of my charm, Val.” He nibbled her neck, his hand moving to her hip in a very proprietary way.

Character Quotes from Lone Wolf by Dellani

“All right. Now tell me everything you didn’t tell me the first time,” Matilda said.

“Matilda, I told you all you need to know, honestly,” Wil replied.

“I’d like to be the judge of that, if you don’t mind.” Her eyes flashed dangerously.

He remembered her expression when she held him at gunpoint and relented.

“Start with just exactly how you planned to make me a loyal, happy, compliant little lap dog. You glossed over that part and it interested me considerably.”

Character Quotes from Under the Western Sky by Dellani

Under the Western Sky by Dellani Oakes - 500“So, did you enjoy kissing Bobby?” Toni asked.

Libby blushed, looking evasive. “Yeah, a little.”

“A little? Your hair is a mess and it was only a little? He’s wearing your lipstick! It looks like you ate his face!” She went into the stall, banging the door.

“You and Danny didn’t even resurface. How did you know I was kissing Bobby?”

“I could feel it. Your energy radiated off you like some sort of super sex bomb.”

Character Quotes from The Ninja Tattoo by Dellani

cropped-the-ninja-tattoo-by-dellani-oakes-200.jpg“Hiya,” Vivica sounded breathless. “You forgot to tell me what to wear.”

“Beach side casual. This is not a fancy place,” Teague replied.

“So, where are you taking me?”

“That would be telling,” he said again. “I’ll see you at 7:00.”

“Oh, giving me the brush off, huh?” She was teasing, he could hear laughter in her voice.

“No, I’m just dripping on the carpet. I just got out of the shower.”

“Mm, sounds tasty. Wow,” she paused, her laughter throaty. “Wow.”

“What?”

“I was just imagining you naked,” she said and hung up.

“Oh, so not fair!” He called her back.

“I wondered if that’d get a rise out of you.”

“You’d love for me to be standing here naked and aroused, wouldn’t you?”

“Are you?”

He hated to admit that he was. When she said that, he pictured her naked and that got him started. Then he flashed on what they could do while naked and that made it worse.

“Well?”

“I’ll see you at 7:00.” He hung up.

Character Quote from It Takes a Thief by Dellani

it-takes-a-thief-cover“That was the end of April, Your Honor. I think around the twenty-eighth? I forget the exact date. My flight records would show it.”

The court clerk looked on her computer file. “That was the evening of the twenty-eighth. The witness is correct.”

Jason’s disarming smile flashed at the woman who was probably old enough to be his mother. She blushed prettily, fanning herself slightly with her left hand.

“Thanks, love,” he said, his lower class accent slipping through for a moment.

“You’re so welcome, Mr. Banes,” she said with another giggle.

“If we could please continue!” Judge Walker’s Brooklyn accent got stronger when she was irritated, which she quickly was becoming.

“Of course, Your Honor. So I walked into the bar and ordered Goldschlager. I stood there for awhile when this woman walked over to me.”

“Had you seen her before?”

“Yes, I remembered seeing her the night before, sitting at the bar.”

“Did you speak to her?”

He blushed, shaking his head. “A lady like that? No.”

“Why not? You have a way with women, don’t you?”

“Your Honor, I don’t want to appear crass, but I was looking for a whole different type of woman that night. A lady with her class? She was way outta my league. So far out of my ballpark, I wouldn’t have touched her with a grand slam. I looked, if you catch my drift. And dreamed a little. That kind of woman is way too upscale for me.”

Character Quotes from Conduct Unbecoming by Dellani

conduct front cover“It’s all there,” Danielle added. “Cash, credit cards, ID, everything.”

“So, someone wanted us to find his identification. Funny, Isobel ran his photograph and came up cold.”

“What database?” Danielle asked.

“No idea. That’s why I brought the pictures. If he’s really Nikola Tesla, his folks had a sick sense of humor.”

Neil’s gaze shifted from Teague to Danielle and back. Jasper remained quiet throughout the conversation. When they came to a stopping place, he held up his hand to get their attention.

Hola, y’all. Mr. Tesla has a laundry label inside his jacket. And it don’t say Nikola Tesla on it. It says, Corin Silvius. Anyone?” His gaze traveled from one to the next, expectant.

They shook their heads.

“Me neither. Just wanted to point that out.”

Character Quote from Undiscovered by Dellani

Undiscovered by Dellani Oakes - 200“So, we’re looking for a deeply tanned, black haired swimmer about six one, broad shoulders, no distinguishing marks.”

She nodded, sighing. “I really wish I’d seen more. I’m sorry.”

There was a knock on the door. “Detective Scott?”

“Yes?”

It was the first officer on the scene, Perry Davis. “We found the mask. No gloves, but we’re still looking. Got a hair off the inside.”

“Bag it and tag it.”

“Already done.” He held up the mask and the hair in separate plastic bags. “Our boy’s got black hair. We’re hoping to get more evidence off the mask.”
