Over the years' that I am reading english romance novels I have gathered quite some quotes that made my heart soar. In random order I wanted to give you ten:
1. Karen Marie Moning - The Dark Highlander:
"If aught must be lost,
twill be my honours for yours,
If one must be forsaken, twill be my soul for yours,
Should death come anon, twill be my life for yours,
I am given…"
2. Sherrilyn Kenyon - Acheron:
He gave himself to her and for the first time, he understood the difference. He understood what it meant to make love. To share his body with someone not out of obligation or fear, but because it made them closer. In this one heartbeat, he was hers and she was his.
3. JR Ward - Lover Eternal:
Rhage sucked in a breath. In all his adult life, no female had ever called him a friend. Or valued his company for something other than sex. In the Old Language, he whispered, "I am barren of words, my female. For no sound from my mouth are worthy of your hearing."
4. Anna Windsor - Bound By Flame:
Just Cynda and Nick, Nick and Cynda, casting of heat like a star going nova.
5. Shannon McKenna - Standing In The Shadows:
Passion fused them together. All the truths of their hearts were known to each other. Nothing could be hidden, nothing held back. No boundaries, no borders. One being.
6. Lauren Dane – Undercover:
She loved them both achingly, deeply, and totally. The wondrous part was that she loved them both in completely different ways, and yet between them, they occupied the space inside her mind, inside her heart and soul.
7. Chris Owen – Bareback:
Quote Tor to Jake:
“This time…this time I’m offering Jake, if you want me, I’m yours. Do anything I can for you, be everything you need. Give myself to you forever.”
8. Lauren Dane – Laid Bare:
I love you and I’m not leaving you. I love that you see me, all of me, and you embrace it. I’m free to be what I am. You get me Erin. In a way no one ever has. I love you, all of you. I want you to share with me because you trust me to protect you, to take the pain and bear part of it.
9. Lora Leigh – Nauti Dreams:
And she had changed him. In that short time, she had erased the man he had been, and shown him the man he wanted to be. A man who was worthy of a woman that strong.
10. C.L. Wilson – Queen Of Song And Souls:
Spirit spun from his fingers in wild waves, and the river around them blazed with fiery light. Hands, teeth, tongues, lips, wings, talons, spirit bodies – both fey and Tairen – caressed and tormented her, claimed and plundered. Gone was the gentle lover. He poured out upon her his magic, his essence, the blazing need of his soul, the primal core of him that existed when all else was stripped away; pure, dominant, male energy, unyielding and fierce, aggressor and defender, protector and conqueror, the darkness to her light. Ours, his Tairen hissed. She is ours. Our mate. Our female. Our pride.
Now, who would you take to the Spring-Fling Ball to celebrate some hot sizzling romance?
