That's a tough question, but I'm going to answer it off the top of my head. Other than some of my own characters, I'm going to have to say Claire and Jamie. I've been reading the books for years, and I love how they manage to stay together. I also love Mary and Dominic from Georgette Heyer's The Devil's Cub. And Frederica and Vernon in GH's Frederica. I'll stop now. (less)

Regency Trivia: Holding up One’s Hair.

Now, we all know that spoken words are frequently used for up to 20 years before anyone writes them down in something that will be preserved. That said, it was interesting. It was then I went down the rabbit-hole. Fort

“took me”
Ella Quinn, Three Weeks to Wed

“Daisy!” He walked away from the tree, turning her so that she could not avoid looking at him, and used his most severe tone. “A well-behaved young lady does not attempt to dislocate her master’s shoulder.” She gave him a sorrowful look, and he was tempted to delude himself into thinking she understood, but just at that moment, the damned rodent scampered down the tree, and she tried to take off again. This time he was ready for her. Blinkers might be a good idea. *”

Richard Bach

where you grab but cannot taste.
your lustfull urge will surely replace,
that bitter sweet pleasure that only leads to disgrace,”
