The Scene from UNDONE That Melts My Butter—By Sara Humphreys
Thanks so much to the Manga Maniac Cafe gang for having me here today! When I was asked to blog about my favorite scene from UNDONE, I found myself in a pickle. I have a couple favorite moments and to be quite honest, it’s hard to pick one because Pete and Marianna were a fun couple to write about. Pete has that smart-ass edge to him that makes him irresistible and Marianna’s tough enough to give him a run for his money.
However, there is one scene in particular that stands out in my mind and so far, it seems to be rather memorable to the readers as well. It’s fondly being referred to as the “snowmobile scene” and some reviewers have said that they’ll never look at a snowmobile the same way again.
A little background before I post a snippet. Pete is human but unlike most humans, he knows about the existence of the Amoveo, the shapshifters who live secretly among society. He works for Marianna’s twin brother, Dante, and was hired to keep an eye on Marianna because the Purist Amoveo are causing all kinds of problems. You see, the Purists don’t want their race mixing with humans and as a result, a civil war has broken out among their race.
Marianna, a pureblood party girl from the Bear Clan, wants no part of politics and hasn’t publicly declared a side. However, since she’s an unmated pureblood female, the Purists are doing their best to persuade her to join their side. It soon becomes clear, that they want her to join them, even if it’s against her will. In an effort to protect her, Pete takes Marianna to his cabin in upstate New York. Needless to say, the sparks between them fly.
Now, I can’t share the whole scene because it’s a tad too saucy to post on the blog but here’s a little teaser to wet your appetite.
Pete hauled ass back to the cabin and Marianna thought at several points they were going to go careening into the trees but in true Pete fashion, they made it back safely. Driving like a man with a mission, he pulled the snowmobile up in front of the cabin and skidded to a halt, sending a wave of snow onto the already snow covered steps.
Marianna took off her helmet and hopped off the blasted contraption. Pete stared up at her through serious eyes as he removed his helmet and tossed it into the snow bank. He didn’t shut off the engine but slid back and patted the empty space in front of him.
“What?” Marianna shouted over the noise of the engine. “I’m not driving that thing.”
“No,” Pete agreed. “You’re definitely not driving tonight.”
Thanks again for hosting me and I hope you’ll check out Pete and Marianna’s story!
Thanks so much, Sara!
