Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts

Welcome to Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts, an original weekly meme hosted here at (un)Conventional Bookworms. So many of the books we read have food or drinks in them, some we’d love to try, and others we’d never ever want to taste… and we thought it could be interesting and fun to share some food and / or drink quotes…  If you want to participate, you can grab our logo if you’d like, or you can make your own, but please link back to us in your own post.

The idea of Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts is to share a quote with food or drinks that showed up in a recent read, as well as if it’s something you think you’d like or not. Please share the title of the book it happened in, as well as the character who ate or drank the special little something you discovered between the pages of a good read. Please link up beneath, and visit other bloggers who are participating in Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts as well.

My quote this week is once again from Kerrigan Byrne’s The Highwayman.

“You can take some tarts if you’d like,” he offered.

“Not a chance.” Farah swiped her coins back into her purse and huffed to the door, thoroughly exasperated. Why was it that every time she came close to answers, to truth, she was thwarted by thickheaded men? It was inconceivably irritating.

Pausing, she turned back around. “What kind of tarts?”

“Strawberry.” Frankenstein wiped his hands on his apron and held the tray out to her.

Cursing her inability to refuse pastries, she took one of the bite-sized confections. “This doesn’t mean I forgive you for being a kidnapping criminal.”

“‘Course not,” he agreed.

“Just so we’re clear.” She popped it into her mouth, and instantly butter, sugar, and the tartness of spring strawberries delighted her palate. “Oh, Lord,” she moaned, unable to help herself.

  1. I could just visualize the female lead being all indignant, trying to refuse the tarts, but not being able to resists and sighing in pleasure. This quote gave me an excellent visual, and those tarts sound so delicious! I want some!!!

  2. Ha! This was a funny scene in light of what was happening. I really enjoyed this book, and the subsequent ones in the series.

    Thanks for sharing. 🙂
