    Lisa Kleypas
    “I want morning and noon and nightfall with you. I want your tears, your smiles, your kisses...the smell of your hair, the taste of your skin, the touch of your breath on my face. I want to see you in the final hour of my lie in your arms as I take my last breath.”
    Lisa Kleypas, Again the Magic

    Marilyn Monroe

    Natsuki Takaya
    “I'm not sure why I've decided to do this. I'm not any stronger than I was, and nothing else has changed. But all the same, this time I'm not going to run away. It's okay to feel weak sometimes. It's okay to be afraid. The important thing is that we face our fears. That's what makes us strong."-Yuki”
    Natsuki Takaya

    Susan Elizabeth Phillips
    “You happened to me,You scare me to death, you know. When you stormed into my life, you turned everything inside out. You upset all the things I believed about myself and made me think in new ways. I know who I used to be, but I’m finally ready to figure out who I am. Cynicism gets tiring, Isabel, and you’ve . . . rested me.And don’t you dare tell me you’ve stopped loving me back, because you’re still a better person than I am, and I’m counting on you to take more care with my heart than I took with yours.”
    Susan Elizabeth Phillips

    Lisa Kleypas
    “I no longer believed in the idea of soul mates, or love at first sight. But I was beginning to believe that a very few times in your life, if you were lucky, you might meet someone who was exactly right for you. Not because he was perfect, or because you were, but because your combined flaws were arranged in a way that allowed two separate beings to hinge together.”
    Lisa Kleypas, Blue-Eyed Devil

    Natsuki Takaya
    “I wish I could've lived my life without making any wrong turns. But that's impossible. A path like that doesn't exist. We fail. We trip. We get lost. We make mistakes. And little by little, one step at a time, we push forward. It's all we can do. On our own two feet.”
    Natsuki Takaya, Fruits Basket, Vol. 21

    Lisa Kleypas

    “I want to believe that I'm not wrong. I want to believe that life isn't full of darkness. Even if storms come to pass, the sun will shine again. No matter how painful and hard the rain may beat down on me.”
    Natsuki Takaya

    Lora Leigh
    “I didn’t know how much I could love until you were gone. Until your laughter no longer filled my home, your wicked high jinks no longer made me crazy. Until I stood in that damned club and knew, without you by side, my life was as empty as my bed was without you in it. I didn’t know what love was, until I saw my refusal to admit it drown all the sweet innocence in your eyes. I love you.”
    Lora Leigh, Shameless

  • #14
    Susan Elizabeth Phillips
    “She loved Bram in a clear-eyed way she’d never loved her ex-husband, no rose-colored glasses or mindless giddiness, no Cinderella fantasies or false certainty that he’d put her life in order. What she felt for Bram was messy, honest, and soul-deep. He felt like…part of her, the best and the worst. Like someone she wanted to struggle through life with; share triumphs and catastrophes; share holidays, birthdays, every days”
    Susan Elizabeth Phillips, What I Did for Love

  • #15
    Philippa Gregory
    “I believe in me, in my view of the world. I believe in my responsibility for my own destiny, guilt for my own sins, merit for my own good deeds, determination of my own life. I don't believe in miracles, I believe in hard work.”

    “just because you refuse to acknowledge something, refuse to
    look at it or think about it, doesn’t mean it’s not there, that it doesn’t
    affect you and the choices you make in your life.”
    Rachel Gibson, Tangled Up In You

  • #17
    Teresa Medeiros
    “You asked me once if I would still love you when your lips were puckered with age and your eyes were
    faded. I can assure you that I will still love you when I have only the strength (and the scant teeth) left to
    gum those puckered lips. I shall love you when your bones are sharp enough to pierce my fragile flesh. I
    shall love you when the light in my own eyes fades for good and yours is the last sweet face I see.
    Because I am and ever shall be…”
    Teresa Medeiros, Yours Until Dawn

    Jennifer Crusie
    “Nobody in my life has ever known me the way you do. Nobody in my life has ever made me feel as good as you do. You know me, you know everything about me, and when you leave me, you're going to be leaving the real me, the me nobody else has ever seen, that's who you're going to be rejecting.”
    Jennifer Crusie, Bet Me

    Julia Quinn
    “Where is he? Bridgerton!" he bellowed.
    Three chestnut heads swiveled in his direction. Simon stomped across the grass, murder in his eyes.

    "That, I believe," Anthony said mildly, tilting his chin toward Colin, "would refer to you.”
    Julia Quinn, The Duke and I

    "A drunk?"
    "Bloodshot eyes, dirty clothes, getting home in the wee hours of the morning, making a lot of
    noise, grouchy all the time as if you had a hangover… what else was I to think?"
    He rubbed his face. "Sorry, I wasn't thinking. I should have showered, shaved, and dressed in a
    suit before I came out to tell you that you were making enough noise to raise the dead.”
    Linda Howard, Mr. Perfect

    “Will you be quiet?" he asked, smiling down at her.
    She nodded.
    He pretended to think about it. "I don't believe you/"
    She planted her hands on her hips, which had to be a ludicrous postition, naked as she was from the waist up.
    All right," he acceded, "but the only words I'll allow from your mouth are, 'Oh, Gareth,' and 'Yes, Gareth.'
    He lifted his finger.
    What about 'More, Gareth?'"
    He almost kept a straith face. "That will be acceptable”
    Julia Quinn, It's in His Kiss

    Dead silence.

    Then another crackle.

    “Sorry. Not interested.”
