Thirsty Thursday & Hungry Hearts is an original weekly meme hosted by Lexxie @Unconventional Bookviews. This meme is the place to share quotes about food and/or drinks we've read about...those we'd love to give a try and those that make us turn our noses up. :) If you want to participate, make sure you share the title of the book your quote is from AND don't forget to link up on Lexxie's blog.
My quote is from Bitten by a Hellcat by Felicity Heaton. In the Eternal Mates series, there is a bar called Underworld, which specializes in serving the supernatural set. Of course, there'd be a special drink for the supes. Although I'm pretty adventurous about trying new drinks, this is one I think I'd better stay away from. :)
His pale gaze dropped to the drink she had evidently bought for him.
A shot of Hellfire.
Heck, she was trying to kill him.
Hellfire was a vicious drink brewed by the non-humans, designed to overcome their constitutions and get them drunk.
The female hellcat slid onto the stool beside him, picked up her own shot glass filled to the brim with the black liquid and raised it.
Her wicked smile made it clear that she was testing him. She knew he was mortal and she wanted to see what he would do and whether he could survive downing the potent shot of alcohol. He was up for that challenge. He took a deep breath to steel himself, grabbed his shot glass and lifted it, saluting her.
Owen raised it to his lips.
"Wait." Her light melodic voice stopped him dead and he stared at her, the glass close to his lips, the fumes coming off the liquid singeing his nose.
She flagged the bartender again, her smile turning even more wicked.
When the only female and human bartender working for the club stopped on the other side of the bar, his little hellcat fluttered her eyelashes and dropped a huge hammer on his male pride.
"Can we get a glass of water for when he chokes?"
