“When a woman is attracted to a man, it doesn't matter if he's rich or not.”

“Is that a fact, Miss Georgia Cracker? Maybe a gentleman does, but not a cowboy. The only time a real cowboy removes his hat is for a funeral, a wedding, or church.

“Mornin’, glory,” Luke said with a lopsided smile. “Did you get your beauty rest?”
