„Drahý nepříteli. Dovolte, abych reagovala na nesmyslnou poznámku o tom, že ženy by se měly spokojit s tím, že jsou ‚duchovním krbem, u něhož se muži ohřívají.‘ Pokud je nějakému muži zima, doporučuji investovat do pořádných kamen. A má-li chladnou duši, neškodí dát si sklenku whisky.“ Ohnivý květ - Lily

„Jelikož Bůh opatruje děti a blázny, vy – jako muži – jste před jakýmkoliv neštěstím chránění.“ Ohnivý květ - Lily


„No one ever fell in love gracefully.“ The Bridal Season

„I want you cool and regal, earthy and impertinent, spoiling for a fight and abashed at your own temper. I want you flushed with exertion and rosy with sleep. I want you teasing and provocative, somber and thoughtful. I want every emotion, every mood, every year in a lifetime to come. I want you beside me, to encourage and argue with me, to help me and let me help you. I want to be your champion and lover, your mentor and student.“ The Bridal Season

„You can figure out what the villain fears by his choice of weapons.“ The Bridal Season

„And enigmatic smile is worth ten pages of dialog.“ The Bridal Season

„Find out what people want to do, then tell them to do it. They'll think you're a genius.“ The Bridal Season

„An intelligent lady, a little too mature for recklessness, a little too young for caution.“ My Pleasure


„Give me a strong back, over a soft heart.“ The Bridal Season

„Where will you go? What will you do?" he demanded.

"That need be no concern of yours--"

"The hell it isn't!" he shouted. "Everything about you is my concern."

She opened her mouth to deny this but the look of him stopped her. For a long tense moment he studied her and when he spoke his voice was low and furious and yearning.

"I don't give a bloody damn if I never share your bed, your name, or your house -- you are still my concern. You can leave, take yourself from my ken, disappear for the rest of my life but you cannot untangle yourself from my -- my concern. That I have of you, Miss Bede, for that, at least, I do not need your permission."

His words shocked her. She looked decades hence and she saw a specter of what might have been haunting her every moment, her every act, for the rest of her life.

"Your concern is misplaced."

"It's mine to misplace," he said steadily.“
My Dearest Enemy

„Charm is getting people to say "yes" without ever having to ask them a question.“ The Bridal Season

„Has he ever even said he loved you?"
"He's been telling me for years," she said softly, "I just wasn't listening“
As You Desire


„He stopped. She heard the intake of his breath. “You are my country, Desdemona.” Yearning, harsh and poignant and she felt herself swaying toward him. “My Egypt. My hot, harrowing desert and my cool, verdant Nile, infinitely lovely and unfathomable and sustaining.”

She gasped.

His gaze fell, shielded by his lashes. An odd, half-mocking smile played about his lips. “You’ll never hear old Blake say something like that.”

She swallowed, unable to speak, her senses abraded by his stimulating words, her pulse hammering in anticipation? Trepidation?

“Remember my words next time he calls you a bloody English rose.“
As You Desire

„She'd stood by that creed. No softness, because the world wasn't soft; lots of laughter, because if you were in on the joke, the joke couldn't be on you; And no wanting what you couldn't take, because the world never gave.
Or so she'd thought.“
The Bridal Season

„Love shouldn't be comfortable.“ The Bridal Season

„Conscience is like a pet: If you spoil it by too much attention it'll start yipping at the most inopportune times.“ The Bridal Season
