“You really are my angel, Emma. You’ve helped me to find my way. You’ve taught me how to be a man. How to love.” Lukas Hawkins in The Rogue’s Proposal by Jennifer Haymore.
This book is out TODAY get your copy you and start reading it. I loved and reviewed it last week.
“I-I’m not making advances,” she told him as she flattened herself against his chest. “You’re just an available s-source of heat.”
“So you say,” St. Vincent replied lazily, tucking the quilt more tightly around them both.
“However, during the past quarter hour you’ve been fondling parts of my anatomy that no one’s ever dared to touch before.”
“I v-very much doubt that.” She burrowed even further into the depths of his coat, and added in a muffled voice, “You’ve probably been h-handled more than a hamper at Fortnum and Mason.”

“If I have learned one thing in my life, it is that lamentation and regrets only make things worse. A person must move on, move forward but never forget the past, but learn from it. If you ponder the ‘if onlys’ of life, they will drive you mad.”
― Lorraine Heath, She Tempts the Duke
“Sometimes change can be a good thing,” Miss Weston said softly. “there are times in every life when events occur that make change inevitable. If a person learns to embrace change rather than rail against it, perhaps it is less troubling when control is wrested away and one is forced to accept some change.”

“I don’t know,’ he said irritably. ‘Is it meant to improve you?’
She swiveled toward him, eyes wide with shock.
‘Because nothing could,’ he added.
Her mouth dropped in astonishment. Blotchy scarlet rushed her complexion. One would have thought he’d shot her.
Oh dear God!
He realized belatedly how wrong it had sounded.
‘No! God… that is to say.. nothing is necessary to improve you. Nothing could possibly make you better… than you already are.”
― Julie Anne Long, How the Marquess Was Won
“He smiled his dimpled smile. “Well, I’ve found something in my heart, my love, and it’s you. You fill it up so completely that I don’t need anything else.” His gaze turned solemn. “I don’t want to be the river anymore. I want to be the earth that the tree roots in. And I believe that I can, if you’ll be my tree. Will you?”
It was too much. She began to cry, though she smiled so he’d know that they were happy tears. “That proposal…is vastly superior…to your last one,” she choked out between sobs. “I would very much love to be your tree.”

“If I have learned one thing in my life, it is that lamentation and regrets only make things worse. A person must move on, move forward but never forget the past, but learn from it. If you ponder the ‘if onlys’ of life, they will drive you mad.” -Lorriane Heath, She Tempts the Duke

“I don’t know. What do people see when they gaze at the sky? Inspiration? Beauty?” She heard him sigh. “Truth be told, this view always intimidated me. The sky’s so vast. I can’t help but feel it has expectations of me. Ones I’m already failing.” He was silent for a long moment. “It reminds me of your eyes.”
-Tessa Dare, A Week to be Wicked
This is one of my favorite stories! 🙂
“Because you are beautiful. I enjoy looking at beautiful people, and I decided a while ago not to deny myself the simpler pleasures of existence.”
John Green, The Fault in Our Stars
This is a YA book and it was a fantastic read. Have your Kleenex box near by because you’ll need it.
“Why not think that sometimes—just sometimes—you can overcome evil with silence? And let people hear their hatefulness in their own ears, without distraction. Maybe goodness is enough to expose evil for what it really is, sometimes.”
-Gabriel’s Inferno by Sylvain Reynard
