“Tell me you love me. Tell me, and I'll stay…I wouldn't care if I died tomorrow, if I could just hear it once—”
“Don't," he growled, backing away.
“That will never happen again.”
“Because you're afraid you might hurt me?”
“Because I don't want you that way.”
She stiffened with indignation, and gave a disbelieving laugh. “You responded to me just now. I felt it.”
His color deepened. “That would have happened with any woman.”
—The way I would kms if a guy said that to me 😭✋🏻
“I didn't send for a woman tonight.”
Aroused and panicking, she stared down at her fists and choked out, “Is this how you treat women now, Kev?”
“Unless I was mistaken in how you once felt for me? Did you ever desire me, Kev?”
“No.” His voice was barely audible. “It was only friendship. And pity.”
“All the fires of hell could burn for a thousand years and it wouldn't equal what I feel for you in one minute of the day. I love you so much there is no pleasure in it. Nothing but torment.”
—FUUUUCK IMAGINE SOMEONE LOVING YOU THIS MUCH
“Mr. Merripen personally selected the wallpaper," Mrs. Barnstable said. "He nearly drove the interior architect mad with his insistence on seeing hundreds of samples until he found this pattern.”
The wallpaper was white, with a delicate pattern of flowering branches. And at sparse intervals, there was the motif of a little robin perched on one of the twigs.
“She said that when Win and I had fallen ill with scarlet fever, and you made the deadly nightshade syrup, you'd concocted far more than was necessary. And you kept a cup of it on Win's nightstand, like some sort of macabre nightcap. Amelia said that if Win had died, she thought you would have taken the rest of that poison”
—THE WAY HE REFUSED TO LIVE WITHOUT HER
“...Because if I could dilute what I feel for you to the millionth part, it would still be enough to kill you. And even if it drives me mad, I would rather see you live in the arms of that cold, soulless bastard than die in mine.”
—HE REALLY CHOSE HER LIFE OVER HIS HAPPINESS 😩 the bare minimum but still necessary
But she was still angry with him, she was done with him, and if he had come here for a midnight talk, he was sadly mistaken. She started to tell him so, but to her astonishment, she felt a thick piece of cloth descend over her mouth, and then he was tying it deftly behind her head. In a few more seconds, he had bound her wrists in front of her...
"Your heart is mine, he thought savagely. It belongs to me."
"He would give in to it, to her, without trying to qualify or control anything."Told in multiple POV, Seduce Me at Sunrise is another stunning blend of romance, passion, and exploration of the dynamics of my new favorite Historical family! The connection between Kev and Win is raw and intense. Kev is a damaged hero who loves Win with everything and yet, his fears continue to hold him back. Lisa Kleypas has a gift for transporting her readers back in time. The setting, the characters, and the emotions come to life with every turn of the page. With complex characters, picturesque setting, and romance, Seduce Me at Sunrise is one that should not be missed.
"May I come in?" He heard a girl ask softly.
The curse died on Kev's lips. His senses were overwhelmed. He closed his eyes, breathing, waiting.
It's you. You're here.
"I believe in two people loving each other." A smile curved his lips. "Finding pleasure in ordinary moments. Walking together. Arguing over things like the timing of an egg, or how to manage the servants, or the size of the butcher's bill. Going to bed each night, and waking up together each morning." Lifting his head, he cradled the side of her face in his hand. "I've always started every day by going to the window for a glimpse of the sky. But now I won't have to."
"Why not?" she asked softly.
"Because I'll see the blue of your eyes instead."
"I couldn't care about anyone else. You took up too much room in my heart."
"Leave me or let me go."
"I can't! I can't Damn you!"
