I think it was Hilary Mantel who said that she wrote the books she wanted to read, and that has always seemed to me sound advice. Of course as a writer you want others to read and enjoy what you've written, but you have to start by writing only for yourself and from the heart. Good luck. (less)

I'm so glad you enjoyed this one, which really stood out for me as a different take on the period, even without the murder mystery. (less)

This was always one of my favourite Heyers, so I was looking forward to reading it again - once more after quite a gap. Alas, I was doomed to be disappointed.

“A man who is born to be hanged can never be drowned.”
Marguerite Kaye, The Soldier's Rebel Lover

“Do you miss wearing your kilt?" she asked.
"In London, it caused more bother than it was worth. Ladies either found it indecent or intriguing. A fair few found it to be both. I was never quite sure whether it was indecently intriguing or intriguingly indecent!”
Marguerite Kaye, The Soldier's Rebel Lover

“I kissed you," Finlay said roughly. "for the very simple reason that you are irresistible."
"I think that is what is known as serendipity," Isabella replied, "for it's the very same reason I kissed you back."
"Serendipity," Finlay said, sliding his arm around her waist. "I've always wondered what it tasted like."
"Strawberries, and lavender, and vintage wine, I believe is how you described it."
"No," he said decidedly. "It tastes of nothing other than essence of you. The most intoxicating and delicious taste imaginable.”
Marguerite Kaye, The Soldier's Rebel Lover

Wow, I didn't even know that Walmart still stocked Harlequin Historicals. So wierd sometimes, hearing that someone so far away has bought my book, I can never get used to it. So thank you, and I really hope you enjoy it.
