" I wouldn't count on much adventure if I were you. I'm going to look after you and keep you safe."
She glanced at him over the rim of the cup, her yes smiling "What I meant was, You are the adventure."
Helen couldn't deny that Mr. Winterborne's personal attraction were high on her list of considerations. A man in his prime, radiating that remarkable energy, a kind of animal vitality that she found both frightening and irresistible. But there was something else about him...a lure more potent than any other. It happened during his rare moments of tenderness with her, when it seemed as if the deep, tightly locked cache of sadness in her heart was about to break open. He was the only person who had ever approached that trapped place, who might someday be able to shatter the loneliness that had always held fast inside her.
No, You're all mine. Every hair on your head. Every part of you was made to be loved by me
“Cariad, nothing about this is casual to me. But if you want a long, sensitive discussion about my feelings, I can't help you. I'm from North Wales, where we express ourselves by throwing rocks at trees. I've had more feelings in the past half-hour that I have in my entire life, and I'm at my limit."
"That still doesn't -"
"I love whatever it is you're made of. All of it.”
Following the countess's gaze upward, Pandora said reverently, "It's the Church of Shopping."
Savage ambition has brought common-born Rhys Winterborne vast wealth and success. In business and beyond, Rhys gets exactly what he wants. And from the moment he meets the shy, aristocratic Lady Helen Ravenel, he is determined to possess her. If he must take her virtue to ensure she marries him, so much the better ...
"I can't be a gentleman," he said hoarsely. "Not even for you."
"You've read the fairy tales. You know what happens to little girls who visit wolves."
