Madeline Hunter quotes (showing 1-27 of 27)

“I never hated you. My anger was never with you, but with the little hell my heart had put me in. The anger always passed. I never regretted loving you. If I had gone to my grave never kissing you or touching you, I still would not have thought it a wasted love.”
Madeline Hunter, The Romantic
“I did indeed say you could have lovers. But I never promised that I would not kill them.”
Madeline Hunter, Ravishing in Red
“You will have to forgive me, Major Woodruffe. I am new to marriage, and perhaps more given to jealousy than some of the more experienced husbands that you know. It is possible that you seek only friendship with my wife. If, however, you entertain any other--"
-Sebastian to Woodruffe
"I assure you that such a thing is the furthest thing from my mind."
-Woodruffe to Sebastian
"Come now, Major. We are both men. Such ideas are never far from our minds at all. But if you do anything that causes me to think that your mind dwells long on that particular idea, I will thrash you, I will ruin you, and I will probably kill you.
-Sebastian to Woodruffe”
Madeline Hunter, Ravishing in Red
“You touch the world even if you do not want it to touch you.

-Leona Montgomery”
Madeline Hunter, The Sins of Lord Easterbrook
“Books have a world all their own ”
Madeline Hunter
“If that is wisdom, then I will never be wise. I do not want a life that has no place for you in it. You will come back with me and take the place that is yours in my heart. No obligations to the past stand in the way. We will marry. ---Addis de Valence”
Madeline Hunter, By Possession
“My incomparable beloved,

Seven months you have been gone, and I fear you will never return. I await your brief, infrequent letters like a boy, desperate for any small indication that you remember I exist, hoping for evidence that you tire of that foreign land where you now live. I read your missives a hundred times for the slightest intimation that you will be coming home. The part of my mind that does nothing but wait grows daily, and soon nothing will be left to attend to life's duties. One word, my love, just one; that is all I seek. One word to let me know that you will not stay away forever, and that I will at least have your presence and friendship in my life, even if I can never have your passion and your love."

--Julian Hampton to Penelope, Countess of Glasbury”
Madeline Hunter, The Romantic
“Daphne, whatever you could think of in your wildest imagination, there is a game for it and probably has been for a thousand years.' He pulled off his shirt and advanced on her. 'For example, there is the lovely lady taken up against the wall game. I'll show you how it is played.”
Madeline Hunter, Dangerous in Diamonds
“Perhaps you should put an advertisement in the papers. You can have it listed under livestock. Stallion sought, something like that."

Now, that was uncalled for, and outright rude. "What a splendid idea," she responded. "Only why play with metaphors? The direct approach is always best. How does this sound? Gentlemen required for a temporary affair of convenience. Unexceptionable reference from previous lovers required. Must be willing to be named in criminal correspondence. Should be presentable, experienced, and have a strong back.”
Madeline Hunter, The Romantic
“Doing the right thing often resulted in living the wrong thing forever.

-Christian, Marquess of Eastrerbrook”
Madeline Hunter, The Sins of Lord Easterbrook
“Utter ruin provokes soul-searching in even the least reflective of men.”
Madeline Hunter, The Sinner
“So, I am Mr. Hampton again. It seems that I am only Julian when you forget yourself."

"I...that is..."

"We have known each other more than half our lives, Pen."

She had not even noticed what she called him.

"I do not want you to call me Mr. Hampton in private conversation ever again.”
Madeline Hunter, The Romantic
“There will be another betrothal, another Mathilda. You speak of only a respite, and my heart can take just so many such partings before it breaks forever. You are proof enough that each of us lives several lives before we perish. There is wisdom in accepting when one ends and another begins. i love you, Addis. I always will. But there is no place for me in the life you have now.”
Madeline Hunter, By Possession
“You are ill, correct? The warmth and shivering had no other particular cause, did it?"

"Not only am I ill, I am sure I am contagious.”
Madeline Hunter, His Wicked Reputation
“Is your badness so varied that it is still delightful? I expect anything gets boring after a while.'
He looked at her with interest. 'How perceptive you are. It takes a good deal of effort to keep badness from being boring. One must seek out new experiences and challenges. Our mutual friends may think I have an easy life, but being notorious is grueling work after a few years.”
Madeline Hunter, Dangerous in Diamonds
“Silêncio. Quietude. A pulsação a criar uma calma absoluta. Uma Maior Consciência na perda de toda a percepção. A Flutuar agora. Ausência de perda. Ausência de medo. Ausência de tempo. Ausência de som.
Uma perturbação. O centro a quebrar-se como vido negro”
Madeline Hunter, The Sins of Lord Easterbrook
“It is normal to be curious. The only shame is if all the musts and shoulds drown out the wants that we hear inside ourselves.”
Madeline Hunter, His Wicked Reputation
“It seems to me if an anointed king can be set aside, a serf-born woman can marry a baron's son. As rebellions against God's lawful order go, ours will be a small one.

---Addis de Valence”
Madeline Hunter, By Possession
“Só a quero porque não a posso ter.Como um rapaz imberbe”
Madeline Hunter, Lord of a Thousand Nights
“Silêncio. Um centro negro e tranquilo absorvendo o caos para a sua quietude”
Madeline Hunter, The Sins of Lord Easterbrook

Madeline Hunter, The Seducer
“Forgive me. It was stupid of me to think you might need company, when clearly all you required was that decanter.”

“It was not stupid. It was very kind. Quite soft, actually. A very warm, womanly gesture. I am touched.” He smiled softly. “However, if you truly want to help, if you really want to distract me, there are better ways. When I saw that dress, I dared hope you had realized that.”
Madeline Hunter, Lady of Sin
“All the same, we should excuse ourselves," Vergil said. "Although I am wondering if the meeting was already well concluded when we intruded." He gave Nathaniel a deep look on the last sentence that made Charlotte's caution prickle. She saw the big brother in him, thinking that a private chat with this man was in order.

Bianca still had not picked up the cue. "You are making plans regarding the petitions?"

"I trust that a petition came up at some point in the visit," Vergil said dryly. "Correct, Knightridge?"

Charlotte wanted to die. "Indeed one did," she said. "Mr. Knightridge is proving to be a great help in the cause."

Bianca beamed. "I always knew that the two of you would find common ground in something."

"Yes, we have discovered that we think alike in one small area," Nathaniel agreed.

Charlotte wanted to hit him.

"Indeed," Vergil muttered.”
Madeline Hunter, Lady of Sin
“A garden did not need people in order to be alive and natural. The flowers might have died, and the last leaves might be falling, but the space was still redolent with the odors of life. It contained a thousand reassurances that no matter what one person’s strife, the seasons continued their cycle.”
Madeline Hunter, Stealing Heaven
“She barely heard. Barely answered. Finally she nodded. Fingertips”
Madeline Hunter, His Wicked Reputation
