Some of my favorite quotes from the book can be found below.
“Fear will bind you closer than love, or hate, and it works a hell of a lot quicker.” –Laurell K. Hamilton, Guilty Pleasures
“Bars are sort of like vampires; they are at their best after dark. There is something tired and wistful about a daytime bar.”–Laurell K. Hamilton, Guilty Pleasures
“Graves are for the living, not the dead. It gives us something to concentrate on instead of the fact that our loved one is rotting under the ground. The dead don’t care about pretty flowers and carved marble statues.”–Laurell K. Hamilton, Guilty Pleasures
