Another reason Sebastian Stan has ruined me.

I was reading one of my favorite books like one of my top five favorite that I always go back to when I’m sad or just need something really good to read. It’s called Night Play by Sherrilyn Kenyon you see the hero, who’s name is Vane reminds me so much of Sebastian especially when he’s in Bucky mode. Now I can’t even read the book without thinking about Sebastian in that role. I’m ruined, not that I’m complaining mind you, its an awesome character and Seb would be amazing as him to. Just thought I’d share this little thought with my doves. Adding some prime examples of why I think Seb would make a fanatics Vane.

Dark Hunter Series Styxx [x]

Our lives are marked and shaped by our regrets. Things we all want to take back and can’t. In a perfect world, we would never hurt the ones we love or cause hurt to befall them. But the world isn’t perfect and neither are we.

Deadmen Walking - Exclusive Excerpt

“Am I the only human on board this ship?”

Devyl didn’t so much as blink at Cameron’s question as she came to rest right in front of him. If anything, the good captain appeared bored by her. “Suppose it depends on the definition one uses for human.”

She gave him an irritated, droll stare as he repeated his quartermaster’s words in a bland mumble. “I am unamused by your hedging, Captain.”

He arched a sardonic black brow that caused a chill to run down her spine. “Who says I’m hedging?”

It was a titanic effort not to roll her eyes at a man, or perhaps infernal beast would be more accurate, she was quite certain might very well suck out her immortal soul and feast upon it. “Can you at least tell me why I was brought on board this ship, then?”

“For your protection.”

Why did she have such a hard time believing that? Probably because she couldn’t imagine a more dangerous group in existence than the one around her.

“From?” Forget the crew, she was beginning to doubt if there could be anything more lethal or terrifying than the creatures who called this ship home.    

He let out a long, slow breath as if seeking some sort of patience. “We are not your enemies, Miss Jack. Of that much, you can rest assured. While we might be an unsavory, untoward and uncivilized group, we are not without our honor.”

“Meaning?”


“Meaning we reserve our venom for those who’ve earned it.”

And those words failed to comfort her. “You’ll have to forgive me if your benediction causes me alarm.”

“No need to apologize. You’ve every right to fear us. As I said, we are an unsavory lot.” He turned those dark, soulless eyes toward her and this time, she saw for a fact that they did indeed turn red as blood.

They glowed in the darkness with an unholy light.

“And an acquired taste.”

Yelping at his sinister tone, she jumped back and crossed herself as true unmitigated horror engulfed her. This was not what she’d meant to sign on with when she’d promised herself and Lettice that she’d find her brother and bring him home. She was already gone longer than she’d ever anticipated. Longer than Nathaniel Harrison would forgive her for.

Nor had she meant to find the devil’s ship and his crew to sail with. No doubt to hell itself they were bound!

Dear heaven, I’ve consigned myself to Perdition …

Everything had seemed so simple when she’d opened her brother’s letter and first set out on this quest. She was to come to Port Royal and ask a few questions. Find out why Paden hadn’t come home after the shipwreck that he’d obviously survived. Take him to task for being so cryptic, then return home to her life, with her wayward brother in tow and let Lettice beat him sideways for his thoughtlessness and the worry he’d given them.

This was never supposed to be part of it. And the captain was definitely not part of the bargain.

Bane froze as he witnessed the absolute stark terror inside Cameron. She literally quivered by his side to such an extent he was amazed she didn’t wet the planks beneath her feet.

You know, sometimes I think to myself “Sherrilyn Kenyon’s books are a tad excessive with the trauma and hurt/comfort tropes.”

Then again, I decided to hurl myself headlong into books and characters literally named Acheron and Styxx, so really the only person to blame for that is myself.

Cuando miras fijamente en la
oscuridad, a veces te devuelve la mirada…
Y esas imágenes reflejadas eran a menudo las más terroríficas y amenazantes.
