“Thirsty Thursdays” is an original weekly feature from the Lazy Book Lovers where we highlight all that makes our mouth water in the world of books. Every week, pick either a quote, book cover, book boyfriend or kiss from our favorite books, that makes us all swoony.
Villains, you you hate them so much that you end up loving them. Thirsty Thursdays this week (after my long hiatus) is all about the Hottest Female Villains. A great villain is an important part of the story, It is from the villain’s darkness that then light of the protagonist will come out.
One of the hottest female villains I have encountered is Christa Peterson, from Sylvain Reynard’s Gabriel’s Inferno series. Smart, sexy and greedy. Christa is out there for the conquest and boy, did she try to get The Professor’s attention (and thankfully failed miserably)
A raven-haired woman seated at his right hand tried to stifle a laugh, smothering in into an unconvincing cough. All eyes shifted back to the frightened rabbit, whose skin exploded into crimson as she ducked her head, finally escaping the professor’s gaze.
“Since Miss Mitchell seems to be carrying on a parallel seminar in a different language, perhaps someone else would be kind enough to answer my question?”
The beauty to his right was only too eager. She turned to face him and beamed as she answered his question in great detail, making a show of herself by gesturing with her hands as she quoted Dante in his original Italian. When she had finished, she smiled acidly at the back of the room, then proceeded to gaze up at the professor and sigh. all that was lacking from her display was a quick leap to the floor and a rubbing of her back on his leg to show that she would be his pet forever. (Not that he would have appreciated the gesture).
