Disgrace (1999) by J.M. Coetzee

Dracula (1897) by Bram Stoker

”The fair girl advanced and bent over me till I could feel the movement of her breath upon me. Sweet it was in one sense, honey-sweet, and sent the same tingling through the nerves as her voice, but with a bitter underlying the sweet, a bitter offensiveness, as one smells in blood” (p 43).
