Character Quotes from Food Truck Hero by Dellani

character-quotes-imageAs the crowd thinned, I spotted Rowena coming out of the building. She was with Bernadette again, doing her best to get away.

I nudged Jake. “Call out Hey, Rowena and wave,” I said.

He did what I asked without question, giving her a big grin and a hearty wave. Surprised, she took the cue and excused herself from Bernie’s less than congenial company. Making her way over to the food truck, she grinned up at us.

“Hey, y’all! How you doing, sugar?” she said to Jake.

“You ain’t from around here,” he replied, laying on his own luscious drawl.

“No, baby, I’m from Mizzippi.”

“No! Really?”

I watched Bernie glower and fade into the background, her dark eyes blazing as she watched the interchange between Jake and Rowena.

“Pass Christian,” she added with a grin. “You ain’t from around here, neither!”

Jake laughed loudly. It was the most comfortable sound he’s ever made. “Nope, true enough. I’m from around Natchez.”

“How’d you end up here?” she asked.

“Was gonna ask the same thing.”

“I go where they send me.”

“Me too.” He nodded, shuffling his feet.

Character Quotes from Undiscovered by Dellani

Undiscovered by Dellani Oakes - 200“Weird thing in both rooms, sir.”

“Oh? What’s that?” Scott was almost defiant, his arms crossed in front of him.

“The shooters used the cord from the blind to steady the weapon. The guy down here, probably about six one. The guy upstairs is shorter, maybe five nine. We think he might have taken the weapon out in a golf bag. The maid found marks of cleats in the carpet.”

Character Quotes from Savannah Rose by Dellani

character-quotes-imageI was giggling so hard, I thought I was going to pee myself. “Oh, we got the Ladies, if you sit on a boy’s lap, you should sit on a phone book speech from Sister Mary Claire. She wouldn’t ever tell us why, though. I don’t think she really knew herself, it was just the speech she was supposed to deliver.”

“Why a phone book?”

I’d left both the men puzzling over that one for a moment.

“Because,” I winked wickedly at Duncan, “if he gets a woody you won’t feel it.”

“My God, Rose, I don’t believe you said that.”

Duncan and Bill were laughing so hard they had tears in their eyes.

“She’s an expert on phone books now, is she?” Bill’s eyes were twinkling.

“Either that or she’s an expert on woodies, Bill. Which do you think?”

“Oh, you’re evil.” I smacked him playfully on the arm.

“I’m really interested, Rose. And I know Duncan is, too. I’m in the newspaper business after all. Which would you say you’re more of an expert on, phone books or woodies?”

He held his cigarette toward me like a microphone. I stared at him for a second, then glanced at Duncan. He had that look on his face, like he was waiting to see how I was going to weasel out of this one.

“I dunno, Bill.” I raised an eyebrow and let my eyes travel down to his crotch. Putting on my best Mae West voice, I replied. “Why don’t ya show me one of each and I’ll let ya know.”

I sashayed back into the hospital, the automatic doors swishing open and shut behind me. I heard their laughter half way up the hall.

Character Quotes from Love on the Catwalk by Dellani

character-quotes-image“Who was your date to prom?” I asked.

“Sophomore, junior or senior year?”

“You went in tenth grade too? Lucky!”

“Older girl dragged me along. Sad thing, I didn’t get laid after.”

“Why not?”

Jeff laughed suddenly, shaking his head. “She thought I was gay. She invited me cause she was gay and didn’t want to out to her parents.”

“Oh, bummer!”

“Junior prom was better.”

“Did you get laid after?”

By the way he chuckled, I knew the answer to that one. “Her name was Julia Child. Her folks named her after the French Chef.”

“Poor girl. Could she cook?”

“Not in the usual, or acceptable sense, but she was damn hot.”

Character Quotes from Best Medicine by Dellani

character-quotes-image“I really am fine, Davi. You don’t need to drive my car home.”

“I saw you when I walked in that door, girl. I’m not gonna let you drive and that’s final. When your face is as white as your lab coat, it’s time to let someone take care of you. Now shut up and tell me who the hunk is.”

Tanya looked up at her friend, uncomprehending. “Hunk?”

“The guy with the great teeth and the tight ass! Where did you find him?”

“I don’t know, D. He was just in the lounge when I got there. We got talking and then I passed out. I don’t know who he is.”

“Ooh, I love a mystery! Well, if you play your cards right, maybe he’ll stay awhile.”

“I don’t want him to stay awhile. I want to go home and go to bed.”

“Girl, you want it so bad, you don’t even know it,” Davida said, tossing her long, curly hair over her shoulder.

“I don’t want anything but a good night’s sleep.”

“Uh huh….” When Davida used that tone, the conversation was over.

Character Quotes from He Needed Killin’ by Dellani

he-needed-killin-cover“You need to put some weight on,” another waitress, Vivian said. She was probably old enough to be his grandmother. Short, plump and gray haired, she had sparkling blue eyes and a sunny smile.

“If I eat like this too much, I’ll blimp out.”

She giggled, pinching his cheek. “Women like a man with some meat on him.”

“Oh, I’ve got meat,” Dill said. When he realized what he’d said and how it could be interpreted, he blushed.

Viv patted his cheek and went off giggling.

Character Quotes from He Thought He Saw by Dellani

He Thought He Saw redMr. Finley talked to the sergeant who had been at Brian’s house. He wove some story about coming out here for a cookout when an earthquake struck.

“Brian must have been right on a fault line,” he said. “Sucked him right in. We dug him out, but he was in a bad way. Fortunately, we had Dr. Beauchamps here and another fellow who used to work as a paramedic. They got him squared away until the ambulance got here.”

“That’s quite a story, Mr. Finley.” She didn’t sound like she believed him.

“Well, maybe you’ll like this one better. We came out here to hunt a demon that’s been causing trouble around town. When he went back on down the abyss, he dragged Brian with him and we pulled him out by magic.”

The sergeant laughed, shaking her head. “Clifford Finley, you were always the best story teller in school. I swear, I don’t know how your wife puts up with you.”

“Cause I keep her laughing,” he replied.

Character Quotes from Under the Western Sky by Dellani

Under the Western Sky by Dellani Oakes - 500Bobby had to admit that nothing beat a miniskirt for being erotic and evocative while still covering up the most important bits of a woman’s anatomy.

“Okay, Mom. I’ll call you when I get in. Love you too!” She hung up and smiled at Bobby. “Put your tongue back in your mouth.”

“You wear an outfit like that and don’t expect me to look? Or are you a tease?”

“You can look all you want. But you aren’t allowed to drool.”

“Can I touch?” He wanted to badly.

“Maybe.” At least she didn’t say no.

Character Quotes from Game Junkies by Dellani

character-quotes-imageGavin nodded. “Your funeral.”

“But you’re not going with us.”

“I get it! You’ve made it abundantly clear you don’t wish my presence. You afraid I’ll scare her off?”

“Maybe a little, yeah. You have this way of trying to take over and organize things. I want a nice, casual coffee with Alice so maybe she’ll go out with me again—and eventually I’ll get laid.”

“For the first time in your life!” Gavin clapped excitedly, laughing like a little girl. “I’m so proud!”

Stan punched him hard. “You know it’s not like that. Just because you’re twenty and a virgin.”

“I beg your pardon. I’ve had more than one partner.”

“Your left hand doesn’t count.”
