Aubrey and Lindsey go to Lindsey's country house so that Halloway can paint Aubrey as Icarus. While they are there, Lindsey convinces Aubrey to try riding. I enjoyed Aubrey'" Read more of this review »

“Aubrey wished for the cunning and craft required to surreptitiously strangle himself with his own necktie. Alas, he had no such skill.”
Sebastian Nothwell, Throw His Heart Over

“Sincere Graves was unnerving. Theatrical Graves was familiar. Lindsey relaxed. “Thank you.”
Sebastian Nothwell, Mr Warren's Profession

“I should fancy, however, that murder is always a mistake. One should never do anything that one cannot talk about after dinner.”
Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray

“I find it harder and harder every day to live up to my blue china.”
Oscar Wilde

“You will think me cruel, very selfish, but love is always selfish; the more ardent the more selfish. How jealous I am you cannot know. You must come with me, loving me, to death; or else hate me, and still come with me, and hating me through death and after. There is no such word as indifference in my apathetic nature.”
Sheridan Le Fanu, Carmilla

“I have been in love with no one, and never shall," she whispered, "unless it should be with you."
How beautiful she looked in the moonlight!
Shy and strange was the look with which she quickly hid her face in my neck and hair, with tumultuous sighs, that seemed almost to sob, and pressed in mine a hand that trembled.
Her soft cheek was glowing against mine. "Darling, darling," she murmured, "I live in you; and you would die for me, I love you so."
I started from her.
She was gazing on me with eyes from which all fire, all meaning had flown, and a face colorless and apathetic.
"Is there a chill in the air, dear?" she said drowsily. "I almost shiver; have I been dreaming? Let us come in. Come; come; come in.”
Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu, Carmilla

“She used to place her pretty arms about my neck, draw me to her, and laying her cheek to mine, murmur with her lips near my ear, “Dearest, your little heart is wounded; think me not cruel because I obey the irresistible law of my strength and weakness; if your dear heart is wounded, my wild heart bleeds with yours. In the rapture of my enormous humiliation I live in your warm life, and you shall die—die, sweetly die—into mine. I cannot help it; as I draw near to you, you, in your turn, will draw near to others, and learn the rapture of that cruelty, which yet is love; so, for a while, seek to know no more of me and mine, but trust me with all your loving spirit.”

And when she had spoken such a rhapsody, she would press me more closely in her trembling embrace, and her lips in soft kisses gently glow upon my cheek.

Sheridan Le Fanu
