Quote-Tastic: Food Poisoning

Aidan glanced at Krys to see if she was frightened, but she and Melissa were whispering. Melissa was explaining how silver reduced a vampire’s strength to that of a human, and Krys was asking about Mirren’s symptoms.

He fought back a smile. “What would you guess is wrong with him if he were human?”

Krys looked shocked till Melissa said drily, “Something you should probably know—they hear everything. There’s really no point in whispering around them.”

“Ah. Well.” She turned a sexy-as-hell shade of pink. “Clammy skin, pallor, tremors.” She frowned as her eyes scanned Mirren’s face. “Have you been nauseated? Vomiting?”

Everyone stared at her except Mirren, who propped his head on the back of the sofa and closed his eyes.

“He has,” Aidan said. “What would your diagnosis be?”

“Probably food poisoning.” As soon as the words were out, she groaned. “I mean, I don’t know if you eat. Well, I guess you don’t eat. You drink, or—something.” She shrugged and blushed furiously.

Mirren started laughing, a low rumble at first, and then a choking, gasping sound. Aidan stared at him. Mirren never laughed. He might smile every once in a while, but laugh?

Aidan grinned at Krys. “I’d say you’re a pretty good doctor.” In more ways than one. She’d defused the tension in the room without realizing it.

Mirren, a vampire, has been poisoned with bad blood.  Aiden, the head of this particular vampire group, is asking the newly acquired informed and human doctor her opinion.

Do you have a book or series that sticks in your head months, even years later?

  1. I haven't heard of this one but vampires who drink bad blood and get sick? I like it. :D

  2. Ah I've seen this author and wanted to try her. Sounds like it could be a fun one. I always love when a straight faced hero/character busts out like that :)

  3. I haven't heard of this book before but I love this quote. Vampires! Yay! :D

  4. This sounds like a great book... Loved the quote going to amazon now

  5. Oh yeah, Mirren is the toughest of tough guys. His story is book 2 in the series. Just finished it and it was AWESOME!!

  6. Well, he didn't drink it. He got shot with pellets that had been dipped in it. The basic premise of the story is that there was this pandemic and a lot of the humans got vaccinated against it. But this changed their blood chemistry and the vamps are allergic to it. So un-vaccinated humans are highly prized by the vamps.

  7. Oh, the series has been fabulous so far. Can't wait to start book 3.

  8. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. :)

  9. ha! That sounds like a funny scene, for sure!

  10. It was a great light hearted moment in the middle of a very tense situation.

  11. Good scene! Thanks for the quote!
