„Humor by si člověk měl zachovat i v těch nejčernějších chvílích. Pokud bychom se ho zříkali, je to cesta do pekel.“ Tajemství dámy

„She looked at him and smiled. She placed her hand upon his shoulder.
He took her right hand in his left and placed his other at her waist, looking at her as if she were an unexploded bomb.
They began to dance.“
The Fortune Hunter


„Face battles when they come, not before.
-Lord Cynric Malloren“
My Lady Notorious

„You can't love me.'

'Don't be bossy. I can do what the hell I like.“
My Lady Notorious

„Doesn't love have to be tested by reality and time, or else isn't it only a dream?“ Winter Fire

„Sometimes food is more than food“

„He'd forgotten just how beautiful she was.
She was wearing a plain gown the color of weak, milky tea, largely covered by a black apron. There was a smudge of dirt across her cheek, and her gilded curls were an untamed riot with a cobweb draped across one side.
She was exquisite.“
The Fortune Hunter

„She made a decision and forced out the words. “I’m sorry.”
“For what?” he asked coolly, not even looking at her. “You dance as beautifully as anyone would expect.”
“For being intolerably rude,” she persisted. “If that is how you see it.”
He glanced down and raised a brow. “Is not that how you see it?”
Amy kept a hold on her temper. “Perhaps. But chiefly, I was being honest.”
“So was I.”
“When?” she asked, confused.
“When I called you a bitch.” He smiled and executed a particularly dizzy turn.“
The Fortune Hunter


„Perhaps you don't see yourself in animation," he said with a smile. "It's true your features are quite ordinary, but they become lively when you talk and you have what are called 'speaking eyes.' They shine with the light of your quick mind.“ An Unwilling Bride

„To all the fallen: may they be young forever in heaven. To all the wounded: may they have strength and heal. To all the bereaved: may they feel joy again. And please God," he added quietly, "may there one day be an end to war.“ An Unwilling Bride

„Flee and your bad behavior will be fixed in people's minds. Return, seem in goo spirits, and everyone will doubt their own memory of events.“ A Most Unsuitable Man

„Her eyelashes lay on her cheek, but they were not extraordinarily thick or long. Her eyebrows would benefit from plucking, but they were elegantly curved.“ The Secret Duke


„The rake himself lived up to Amy’s expectations, however, when he came out to greet his guests. Tall, dark, handsome, and dressed with devastating informality in an open-necked shirt, sleeves rolled up to expose his arms like a laborer. No one could fair to be aware of a lithe body beneath the slight amount of clothing, and there was a wicked gleam in his eye even if he was supposed to have been tamed by matrimony.
Amy found it difficult to believe that the very ordinary woman by his side had achieved such a miracle. Lady Templemore was short and her gown was a simple green muslin. Her face was close to plain and her brown hair was gathered into a simple knot at the back.
But then she smiled at her guests and was beautiful. When she turned to her husband with a comment, she was dazzling, and the look in his eye showed he was tamed indeed, if devotion so heated could be called tame at all.“
The Fortune Hunter

„me. That's what husbands are for. And for holding onto for comfort. And to make sure that life will be better. That is my wedding vow to you“ An Arranged Marriage

„And the simple fact was that it might be possible to make oneself fall in love, but only when the heart was free.
Amy was having to accept that her heart was not free.“
The Fortune Hunter

„She shut the door in the man’s face, leaning back against it, her heart hammering with panic.“ The Secret Wedding
