These are the contexts of the quotations tweeted from @sueannbowling between June 12 and June 18, 2014. The first six are from Beauty and the Werewolf by Mercedes Lackey.

Beauty and the Werewolf cover“Most of us are only human, and far too often our only choices are between bad and worse.” Godmother Elena is speaking to Bella.

“No matter what we do, someone is going to suffer.” Still Godmother Elena.

“I am never going to be a proper lady. I will never choose style over comfort.” Bella, after she has insisted that the most impractical of her new gowns be removed.

“Men want a wife who will fit into society.” Bella, thinking over what she will – and can – do once she returns home after being bitten by a werewolf.

“The nurturing hand also held the knife.” Bella, forced to admit that even a good king must at times be ruthless.

“It was amazing what young men would say when they thought there were no parents or young women about.” Bella has done some wandering about and eavesdropping at the parties her stepmother insisted she attend.

“You want a demonstration of how we were doing without your help?” Sue Ann Bowling, Homecoming. Derik mind-talking to Roi after the first practice teleport of the day with Roi’s help. It’s also the first one that has left the teleported boxes intact.
