"Sweat isn't a bad thing. Some of the best things in life happen while sweating. Yeah, if you gettoo much of it and it gets old and stale, it turns pretty gross. But on a beautiful woman? Intoxicating. If you could smell things like a vampire does, you'd know what I'm talking about. Most people mess it all up and drown themselves in perfume. Perfume can be good…especially if you get one that goes with your chemistry. But you only need a hint. Mix about 20 percent of that with 80 percent of your own perspiration…mmm. Dead sexy."
- Adrian Ivashkov (Frostbite)

Adrian: "He didn't give you that black eye, did he?"
Rose: "He wouldn't be alive if he did. I got it during … practice. I mean, I'm training to be a guardian. Our classes are always rough."
Adrian: "That's pretty hot,"
Rose: "Punching me in the eye?"
Adrian: "Well, no. Of course not. I meant that the idea of getting rough with you is hot. I'm a big fan of full-contact sports."
- Adrian Ivashkov and Rose Hathaway (Frostbite)

Rose: "Hey, Mia."
Mia: "Another guy?"
Rose: "Mia, this is Adrian Ivashkov."
Adrian: "Always a pleasure to meet a friend of Rose's, especially a pretty one."
Rose: "We aren't friends,"
Mia: "Rose only hangs out with guys and psychopaths,"
Adrian: "Well, since I'm both a psychopath and a guy, that would explain why we're such good friends."
Rose: "You and I aren't friends either,"
Adrian: "Always playing hard to get, huh?"
Mia: "She's not that hard to get. Just ask half the guys at our school."
Rose: "Yeah, and you can ask the other half about Mia. If you can do a favor for her, she'll do lots of favors for you."
Mia: "Well, at least I don't do them for free."
- Rose Hathaway, Mia Rinaldi and Adrian Ivashkov (Frostbite)

"You're one of those people who either has soul mates or mortal enemies, aren't you? No in-between."
- Adrian Ivashkov to Rose Hathaway (Frostbite)

Adrian: "Rose Hathaway, I can't wait to see you again. If you're this charming while tired and annoyed and this gorgeous while bruised and in ski clothes, you must be devastating at your peak."
Rose: "If by 'devastating' you mean that you should fear for your life, then yeah. You're right."
- Adrian Ivashkov and Rose Hathaway (Frostbite)

Adrian: "Don't worry. I told you, I'm not interested in her in that way. She doesn't look as good in a bathing suit. Probably not as good out of one either."
Rose: "Well, you'll never find out."
Adrian: "It's okay. I have a good imagination."
- Adrian Ivashkov and Rose Hathaway (Frostbite)

Adrian: "No surprise there. She's one of those people who can charm anyone she wants if she tries hard enough. Even people who hate her."
Rose: "I feel that way when I talk to you."
- Adrian Ivashkov and Rose Hathaway (Frostbite)

Adrian: "What happened, then? You're stomping through every puddle you can find and look like you're going to punch the first person you see."
Rose: "Why are you hanging around, then? Aren't you worried about getting hit?"
Adrian: "Aw you'd never hurt me. My face is too pretty."
Rose: "I got assigned to Christian for my field experience."
Adrian: "Wow. Now I understand. In light of that, you actually seem remarkably calm."
- Adrian Ivashkov and Rose Hathaway (Shadow Kiss)


Rose: "Smoking's not allowed on campus. Abby Badica got two weeks' detention when she got caught."
Adrian: "I'm abouve the rules, Rose. I'm neither student nor staff, merely a free spirit wandering your fair school as I will."
- Rose Hathaway and Adrian Ivashkov (Shadow Kiss)

"Look, Rose. You don't have to keep up with the hard-to-get thing. You've already got me."
- Adrian Ivashkov (Shadow Kiss)

"Don't worry, little dhampir. You might be surrounded by clouds, but you'll always be like sunshine to me."
- Adrian Ivashkov (Shadow Kiss)

"This is politics. People in power never have to play by the same rules."
- Adrian Ivashkov (Shadow Kiss)

Christian: "I'm going to go take care of this right now."
Adrian: "Sure. I bet going in there and kicking down the door will change their minds. Take Rose with you, and you guys'll make a really good impression."
- Christian Ozera and Adrian Ivashkov (Shadow Kiss)

Adrian: "Isn't your dad some Turkish guy anyway?"
Rose: "Yeah, According to my- Hey, are you staring at my chest?"
- Adrian Ivashkov and  Rose Hathaway (Shadow Kiss)

"I'm always crazy around you Rose. Here, I'm going to write an impromptu poem for you." 
He tipped his head back and shouted to the sky: 
"Rose is in red
But never in blue
Sharp as a thorn
Fights like one too."
- Adrian Ivashkov (Shadow Kiss)

"Art doesn't have to make sense, little dhampire. Besides, I'm supposed to be crazy, right?"
-Adrian Ivashkov (Shadow Kiss)

"People who are crazy rarely question whether they're crazy."
- Adrian Ivashkov (Shadow Kiss)

Rose: "Are you sober?"
Adrian: "Sober enough."
- Rose Hathaway and Adrian Ivashkov (Shadow Kiss)

"None of you appreciate me. Why is it so hard to believe that I could make a real contribution in these dark times? My cigarettes and I are going outside. At least they show me respect."
- Adrian Ivashkov (Shadow Kiss)

Rose: “I suppose I should be grateful you only show up about once a week.”
Adrian: “Absence makes the heart grow fonder, Rose. Don’t want you to take me for granted.”
Rose: “We’re in no danger of that; don’t worry."
- Rose Hathaway and Adrian Ivashkov (Blood Promise)

Rose: "So I guess you can let me go back to sleep.”
Adrian: “How many times have I told you? You are asleep.”
Rose: “And yet I inexplicably feel exhausted talking to you."
- Rose Hathaway and Adrian Ivashkov (Blood Promise)

Adrian: “Alchemists only show up when trouble happens, and you bring trouble wherever you go. Be careful, though. They’re religious nuts.”
Rose: “That’s kind of extreme.”
Adrian: “Just don’t let them convert you. I like you being the sinner you are."
- Adrian Ivashkov and Rose Hathaway (Blood Promise)

"I’m only now finally moving past healing scratches, and you can bring back the dead, which—call me crazy—is kind of hard-core... Of course, some would argue that I am actually crazy."
- Adrian Ivashkov (
Blood Promise)

Adrian: “Studying’s overrated. Just find someone smart to copy off.”
Lissa: “Are you saying I’m not smart?”
Adrian: “Hell no. You’re the smartest person I know. But that doesn’t mean you have to do unnecessary work.”
Lissa: “You can’t succeed in life if you don’t work. Copying from others won’t get you anywhere.”
Adrian: “Whatever, I copied all through school, and look how well I’m doing today.”
- Adrian Ivashkov and Lissa Dragomir (Blood Promise)

“I totally ruled my high school. I was worshipped and adored—not that that should come as a shock.”
- Adrian Ivashkov (
Blood Promise)

“I’m like a fine wine. I get better with age. The best is yet to come.”
- Adrian Ivashkov (
Blood Promise)

Adrian: “And, I can visit people in their dreams.”
Christian: “Stop. I can feel there’s a comment coming on about how women already dream about you. I just ate, you know."
- Adrian Ivashkov & Christian Ozera (
Blood Promise)

Adrian: “Fine, fine, you insolent girl. I’ll make coffee.”
Avery: “With a kick?”
Christian: “You have got to be kidding. Do you even have a liver left?"
- Adrian Ivashkov, Avery Lazar, & Christian Ozera (
Blood Promise)

Christian: “After the attack, lots of people said they wanted to learn to fight with magic. So they found me, and we worked together . . . once or twice. Then everyone faded away once it got hard, and they realized they had to keep practicing.”
Lissa: “It doesn’t help that you’re a mean teacher."
Adrian: “And so now you’ve got to recruit among children,”
- Christian Ozera, Lissa Dragomir, & Adrian Ivashkov (
Blood Promise)

Adrian: “Fire and water, huh?” Adrian reached into his pocket and pulled out a one hundred-dollar bill. He snapped it out straight. "Sweetheart, I’ll make you a deal. If you can make a bucket of water appear and dump over Christian’s head, I’ll give you this.”
Lissa: “I’ll add in ten,”
- Adrian Ivashkov & Lissa Dragomir (
Blood Promise)

Adrian: “Hush. I’ll deal with you later, Lazar.”
Avery: “I certainly hope so. I’ll leave the door unlocked."
- Adrian Ivashkov & Avery Lazar (
Blood Promise)

Adrian: “Why are you always so difficult?”
Rose: “Because you like me that way.”
- Adrian Ivashkov & Rose Hathaway (
Blood Promise)

Adrian: “Are you jealous, little dhampir?”
Rose: “No. If I was going to be jealous over you, I would have gone crazy a long time ago, considering all the girls you mess around with.”
- Adrian Ivashkov & Rose Hathaway (
Blood Promise)

Avery: “Relax, Jailbait. A drunken kiss is nothing compared to a drunken fall. God knows I’ve kissed plenty of guys drunk.”
Adrian: “And yet, I remain unkissed tonight,”
- Avery Lazar & Adrian Ivashkov (Blood Promise)

"I know how devastated you must be to miss me. But leave a message, and I’ll try to ease your agony as soon as possible.”
- Adrian Ivashkov (Blood Promise)

Rose: “Couldn’t Lissa have healed that black eye away?”
Adrian: “It’s a badge of honor. Makes me seem manly."
- Rose Hathaway & Adrian Ivashkov (Blood Promise)

“This is very domestic of you. It’s kind of hot, really. Giving me allsorts of fantasies about you in an apron vacuuming my house.”
- Adrian Ivashkov to Rose Hathaway (Blood Promise)

Rose: “I don’t suppose you’re helping?”
Adrian: “Nah. I helped when I ate everything on my plate. No mess that way.”
- Rose Hathaway & Adrian Ivashkov (Blood Promise)

Rose: "You've asked me out tons of times." 
Adrain: "Not really. I've made inapproprite suggestions and frequently pushed for nudity. But I've never asked you out on a real date. And, if memory serves, you did say you'd give me a fair chance once I let you clean out my trust fund." 
Rose: "I didn't clean it out."
- Rose Hathaway & Adrian Ivashkov (Blood Promise)

“Seriously? That’s like homework. There’s a reason I’m not in college.”
- Adrian Ivashkov (Blood Promise)

“You want diamonds? I’ll give you diamonds. I’ll shower you in them. Hell, I’ll get you a gown made out of them. But it’s going to be skimpy.”
- Adrian Ivashkov (Spirit Bound)

"He's a badass in his way too. I mean, any other guy who wore scarves like that? He'd be laughed out of this school. Not Abe. He'd beat someone almost as badly as you would."
- Adrian Ivashkov (Spirit Bound)

Adrian: “Well… Abe said he liked me. But he also made it clear what he’d do to me if I ever hurt you or did anything bad. In fact, he described what he’d do in very graphic detail. Then just like that, he switched to some random, happy topic. I like the guy, but he’s scary.”
Rose: “He’s out of line! He has no right to threaten my boyfriends. I’m eighteen. An adult. I don’t need his help. I can threaten my boyfriends myself.”
- Adrian Ivashkov & Rose Hathaway (Spirit Bound)

Rose: “You approve?”
Adrian: “Unfortunately yes. I was hoping you’d show up in something a lot sluttier. Something that would scandalize my parents.”
Rose: “Sometimes it’s like you don’t even care about me as a person. It’s like you’re just using me for shock value.”
Adrian: “It’s both, little dhampire. I care about you, and I’m using you for shock value.”
Adrian Ivashkov & Rose Hathaway (Spirit Bound)

Adrian: “I don’t know. This college would probably have the same problem the last one did.”
Rose: “What’s that?”
Adrian: “Homework.”
- Adrian Ivashkov & Rose Hathaway (Spirit Bound)

"I don't really need a job or extra money. After Rose and I get married, the kids and I'll just live off of her guardian paycheck." 
- Adrian Ivashkov (Spirit Bound)

Adrian: "So you're going off with Lissa?"
Rose: "Yup, sorry. You know--girl stuff." And by girl stuff, I meant breaking and entering.
- Adrian Ivashkov and Rose Hathaway (Spirit Bound)

Adrian: "Did you know that Victor Dashkov is sitting on your bed?"
 "Yeah. It was kind of a shock to us too."
- Adrian Ivashkov & Rose Hathaway (Spirit Bound)

Adrian: "Oh lord. Rose, please tell me you guys aren't the ones who busted him out? They're all looking for two human girls and a dhampir guy. The descriptions don't match at all... But it was you, wasn't it? Somehow, you broke into a maximum-sicurity prison. With Eddie."
Rose: "Must not have been all that secure."
- Adrian Ivashkov and Rose Hathaway (Spirit Bound)

"Dreams, dreams. I walk them; I live them. I delude myself with them. It's a wonder I can spot reality anymore."
- Adrian Ivashkov (Spirit Bound)

Moroi Man: "You got yourself a good one. Young, but that's the best way. Most of these are used and washed-up."
Rose: "Don't you dare talk about them like that, or I'll smash that wineglass in your face."
Moroi Man: "Feisty."
Adrian: "You have no idea."
- Rose Hathaway, Adrian Ivashkov and a moroi man (Spirit Bound)

Moroi Man: "You should dress her better, you know."
Adrian: "I'm not interested in putting clothes on her."
- Adrian Ivashkov and a Moroi Man (Spirit Bound)

Adrian: "We've got more important things to worry about."
Rose: "Like covering up a crime and getting out of this city without being attacked by Strigoi?"
 "No. Like me winning money."
 "Are you crazy?" 
'Asking Adrian that was never a good idea.'
Rose: "We just escaped a bunch of bloodthirsty monsters, and all you can think about is gambling?"
 "The fact that we're alive means we should live,"
- Adrian Ivashkov and Rose Hathaway (Spirit Bound)

Rose: "I really am sorry. For everything . . . for lying about where I was and what I was doing. It was wrong. And I don't understand . . . well, I don't get why you're being so nice to me."
Adrian: "Should I be mean? Is that the kind of thing you're into?"
- Rose Hathaway and Adrian Ivashkov (Sprit Bound)

Adrian: "Rose, nothing in this world could make me hate you."
Rose: "Not even trying to bring my ex-boyfriend back from the dead?"
- Adrian Ivashkov & Rose Hathaway (Spirit Bound)

"I know. You did what you did out of love. I can't be mad at you over that. It was stupid, but that's how love is."
- Adrian Ivashkov (Spirit Bound)

Rose: "I hate it when you're the sane one. That's my job."
Adrian: "Rose, I can think of many words to describe you, sexy and hot being at the top of the list. You know what's not on the list? Sane."
Rose: "Okay, well, then my job is to be the less crazy one."
Adrian: "That I can accept."
- Rose Hathaway and Adrian Ivashkov (Spirit Bound)

Rose: "... I have to kill him."
Adrian: "Good, I'm glad."
Rose: "God. Are you that eager to get rid of any competition?"
Adrian: "No. I just know that as long as he's still alive--or, well, kind of alive--then you're in danger. And I can't stand that. I can't stand knowing that your life is in the balance. And it is, Rose. You'll never be safe until he's gone. I want you safe. I need you to be safe. I can't . . . I can't have anything happen to you."
-Rose Hathaway and Adrian Ivashkov (Spirit Bound)

Rose: "Some days I think you're in more danger from yourself than anyone else. You smell like cigarettes, you know."
Adrian: "Hey, I have never, ever said I was perfect. And you're wrong. You're probably the most dangerous thing in my life."
- Rose Hathaway and Adrian Ivashkov (Spirit Bound

"If only it were that easy. You forget: I have an addictive personality. I'm addicted to you. Somehow I think you could do all sorts of bad things to me, and I'd still come back to you."
- Adrian Ivashkov (Spirit Bound)

Adrian: "What are you rose hathaway, are you real? You're a dream within a dream. I'm afraid touching you makes me wake up, you'll disappear."
Rose: "Touch me and find it out!"
- Adrian Ivashkov & Rose Hathaway (Spirit Bound)

"That was the best not-sex ever."
- Adrian Ivashkov (Spirit Bound)

Lissa: Arn't there any. I don't know, sleeveless options?"
'The saleswoman's eyes widened.'
Saleswoman: "No one has ever worn straps to a royal funeral. It wouldn't be right."
Adrian: "What about shorts? Are they okay if they're with a tie? Because that's what I was gonna go with"
'The woman looked horrified.'
- Lissa Dragomir, Adrian Ivashkov, and Saleswoman (Last Sacrifice)

"Well, I'm supposed to be crazy, right? And there isn't much I wouldn't do for you. The stupider the better."
- Adrian Ivashkov (Last Sacrifice

Rose: "And what are you going to do exactly?"
Adrian: "Prove that your innocent. Or, well that you didn't kill my aunt. I've known for a while you arn't all that innocent." 
- Rose Hathaway and Adrian Ivashkov (Last Sacrifice)

Christian: "Worst .Timing.Ever."
Adrian: "Huh, So that's how you're going to fix the family problem. Little Dragomirs. Good idea."
Christian: "Yeah, that's exactly it. You're interrupting official Council business."
Christian: "Sleep first. Shower later. I'll sleep with you."
Lissa: "Sleep or sleep?"
Christian: "Real sleep. You need it. Of course, afterward if you want to conduct any official Council business..."
Lissa: "I swear, if you say 'Little Dragomirs', you can sleep in the hall."
- Christian Ozera, Adrian Ivashkov and Vasilisa Dragomir (Last Sacrifice)

Lissa: "It's Adrian."
Christian: "Well, at least his timing is better than usual."
Adrian: "Get up, guys. We've got a visit to pay."
Christian: "I am not hanging out with Blake Lazar again."
Adrian: "You and me both."
- Vasilisa Dragomir, Christian Ozera and Adrian Ivashkov (Last Sacrifice)

Rose: "Oh my God. It worked."
Jill: "Now What?"
Rose: "Now we reestablish the Dragomir line and call out a murderer."
Adrian: "Oh, is that all?"
- Rose Hathaway, Jillian Mastrano and Adrian Ivashkov (Last Sacrifice)

Rose: "We need the room's attention. We've got a way to settle this whole argument."
Adrian: "Well, we've at least got a way to start another one."
- Rose Hathaway and Adrian Ivashkov (Last Sacrifice)

"I loved you! I loved you and you destroyed me. You took my heart and ripped it up. You might as well have staked me!" The Change in his features also caught me by surprise. His voice filled the room. So much grief, so much anger. So unlike the usual Adrian. He strode toward me, hand clasped over his chest. "I.Loved. You. And you used me the whole time."
- Adrian Ivashkov (Last Sacrifice)
