“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.”
Jo Beverley, The Fortune Hunter

“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.”
Jo Beverley, The Fortune Hunter

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