“It is no wiser to taunt a man with words than to poke a wildcat with a stick.”
Amanda Scott, The Laird's Choice

“Part of thinking for oneself is learning to recognize obstacles when they present themselves, and understanding that one must confront those obstacles, not merely ignore them in the mistaken hope that they will disappear.”
Amanda Scott, Dangerous Illusions

“When Alex moved as if to escort Lina, Ian gave him a fierce look and stepped forward to offer his arm.
“If I may, my lady,” he said politely.
She raised her eyebrows much as his mother might have done. But she put a hand on the forearm he’d extended and smiled demurely. “You are most kind, sir.”
“Sakes, lass,” he muttered. “Do you mock my courtesy? Can I do nowt to win your approval?”
She gave him a direct look and said in a normal tone, “Faith, sir, do you seek my approval? You must know that you have earned my gratitude.”
“But you still disapprove of how I won it, do you not?”
“That is unfair,” she said. “I have already admitted having mixed feelings about that. I do still believe that one should think before leaping into danger.”
“What makes you imagine that I do not?”
“I know you don’t always think before you act.”
Amanda Scott, The Knight's Temptress
