    Elizabeth Lowell
    “The sacred rowan is a woman born long, long ago, a woman whose refusal to see love cost first her lover's life, then the lives of her family, her clan, her people.
    But not her own life. Not quite.
    In pity and punishment she was turned into an undying tree, a rowan that weeps only in the presence of transcendent love; and the tears of the rowan are blossoms that confer extraordinary grace upon those who can see them.
    When enough tears are wept, the rowan will be free. She waits inside a sacred ring that can be neither weighed or measured nor touched. She waits for love that is worth her tears.
    The rowan is waiting still.”
    Elizabeth Lowell, Enchanted

    Kathleen E. Woodiwiss
    “You are stingy with our words," she accused, then laughed gayly as she swept around, tossing over her shoulder a roguish look that drew the length of him. "But I am more generous, my lord. You are indeed a fine sight."
    Kathleen E. Woodiwiss, The Wolf and the Dove

    “And Ken said I can't marry you."
    Jack felt his heart jump in his chest. He glanced at his sleeping brother. "Did he say why?"
    "Yes." She kept her voice sober. "He said you have to ask me properly."
    Relief made him weak. His pulse beat at his temples, throbbed in his neck. For one moment his fingers closed in her hair in a tight fist. "Properly? If I ask, you might say no, so I'm thinking we'll just start off right and I'll tell you and we'll get the thing done."
    "Get the thing done?" Briony echoed.
    Ken snorted aloud. "Jack, I'll take over watch and you get some sleep. I think you fried your brain up there on the roof."
    "Pipe down over there." Jack said. "You're already stirring up trouble."
    "Get the thing done?" Briony repeated slowly. "The thing being what exactly?"
    "The ceremony. The paperwork. Whatever the hell it takes to make it legal."
    Briony sat up and glared at him. "Take your 'it' and shove it, Jack."
    "There's no need ti be getting upset, Briony. We can't exactly go around with a bunch of kids and not do whatever the hell it is one does to make it legal."
    "Whatever the hell it takes to make what legal?"
    He shrugged. "How the hell would I know? I've never done this before. Sleeping together I guess."
    "So you are going to marry me so it's legal to sleep with me?"
    "This isn't coming out right."
    "You think?"
    "Don't get upset, baby,. I don't understand why you're getting upset.”

    “He accused me of being Dumbledore's man through and through."
    "How very rude of him."
    "I told him I was."
    Dumbledore opened his mouth to speak and then closed it again. Fawkes the phoenix let out a low, soft, musical cry. To Harry's intense embarrassment, he suddenly realized that Dumbledore's bright blue eyes looked rather watery, and stared hastily at his own knee. When Dumbledore spoke, however, his voice was quite steady.
    "I am very touched, Harry.”
    J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

    Cassandra Clare
    “A pair of werewolves occupied another booth. They were eating raw shanks of lamb and arguing about who would win in a fight: Dumbledore from Harry Potter books or Magnus Bane.
    "Dumbledore would totally win," said the first one. "He has the badass Killing Curse."
    The second lycanthrope made a trenchant point. "But Dumbledore isn't real."
    "I don't think Magnus Bane is real either," scoffed the first. "Have you ever met him?"
    "This is so weird," said Clary, slinking down in her seat. "Are you listening to them?"
    "No. It's rude to eavesdrop," said Jace.”
    Cassandra Clare, City of Ashes

    “Ah, music," he said, wiping his eyes. "A magic beyond all we do here!”

    Lora Leigh
    “Men sucked. They were the root of every problem any woman could ever have. They were the reason for bras, the need for makeup, hair stylists, shaving legs,
    and high heels that made the arch feel like it had a steel rod slammed up it. They were picky, arrogant, argumentative, and so damned certain of themselves <...>.”

    “He should have no further trouble from her, he thought in satisfaction. Surely by now she knew his dominance over her. She would submit as easily in all matters as she had in this one.
    He frowned then. She had submitted, hadn´t she?”
    Lora Leigh

    “But I might—” he bit out. “Tell me you’re not a fucking virgin.”

    “No, I’m not a fucking virgin. Virgins have yet to fuck, remember?”

    J.K. Rowling
    Moody jerked his wand, and the spider rose onto two of its hind legs and went into what was unmistakably a tap dance.
    Everyone was laughing — everyone except Moody.
    “Think it’s funny, do you?” he growled. “You’d like it, would you, if I did it to you?”
    The laughter died away almost instantly.”
    J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

    “You just like to piss me off,” Jack said.
    “Well, there’s that. On the other hand, we’ll find out really fast just how much of a bastard you’re going to be to live with—with your woman around. You get out of line, and I’ll have to take you out behind the barn.”
    “We don’t have a barn.”
    “I told you we needed a barn, damn it,” Ken said. “You had to have a shop. It doesn’t sound the same saying I’m taking you out behind the shop.”
    Christine Feehan, Conspiracy Game

    “There were a thousand secrets in her eyes, a thousand wounds. A lifetime of distrust and betrayal. Isolation. How did one overcome such things?”

    “And of course I'm a chauvinist, but it isn't my fault."
    "It isn't?"
    "No, Jack was born first and I share his genes. I can't help it if he infected me inside the womb."
    Briony burst out laughing. "I should have known that would be your excuse.”
    Christine Feehan, Conspiracy Game

    “I absolutely love you, Briony, and I am on my knees. So we're getting married - right? But say it fast before we get shot."
    Only Jack would ask - if you could call it asking - in the middle of a battlefield, with a man lying dead at his feet.”
    Christine Feehan, Conspiracy Game

    “Speaking of the sick, twisted freak, have you caught sight of the bastard?"
    Jack gave a short, expressive snort. "Um, that would be a negative. I've never actually seen Sean."
    "I sent you an image."
    "Tails and horns aren't exactly the real deal, ken. You gave me a picture of the devil.”
    Christine Feehan, Deadly Game

    “Are you going to win every argument?" He was pretty certain he'd asked her that once before. May be twice.
    "Only the important ones.”
    Christine Feehan, Ruthless Game

    “On the other hand, she never looked as -big- as she did at that moment.
    "What?" Rose demanded, glaring up at him.
    The warning signal flashed bright red in Kane's head. Telling a woman she was as big as a beach ball wouldn't win any points. How did one describe how she looked? A basketball? Volleyball? He studied her furious little face. Yeah. He was in big trouble no matter what he said. Description was out of the question. He needed diplomacy, something that flew out of the window when he was near her and she said the words like contractions.”
    Christine Feehan, Ruthless Game

    Christine Feehan
    “You aren't worried are you?"
    "Why should I be worried? It's just another day in the neighborhood. You know - bombs, fires, people shooting at you. Why should I be worried? Especially since we could be clothes shopping or boarding a plane. I'm not in the least worried."
    "Hmmm," he mused allowed. "I read about this in the relationship manual. It's called womanly sarcasm and usually means a man is in deep trouble.”
    Christine Feehan, Mind Game

    “Everyone has a choice. (Kiara)
    No, princess, they don’t. Choices aren’t always up to us. Life and circumstances can shred even the stoutest soul. No matter how pure and untainted you think you are, I promise you that you, too, can be shoved into the darkness, just like we were. (Syn)”
    Sherrilyn Kenyon, Born of the Night

    Sherrilyn Kenyon
    “I’ve spent my entire life listening to people tell me why I can’t be loved and how I’m nothing but a worthless piece of shit. I always told myself that I didn’t care, that I didn’t need anyone else. It was a lie, you know. I do care and I want Kiara. If it costs me my life to be with her, it doesn’t matter. I’ve already lived past my prime, anyway. I get up every morning with more pain in my joints than the day before. If I have to die, I’d rather die knowing someone cared about me, just once. Is that really too much to ask? (Nykyrian)
    For us? Yes. It is. We are the gutter and the gutter is all we’ll ever be. Don’t reach out for the stars. They’ll burn you until there’s nothing left. (Syn)
    Then let me burn. (Nykyrian)”
    Sherrilyn Kenyon, Born of the Night

    “I suggested we hire a new engineer, but someone ignored me. (Vik)
    And what was I supposed to do? Shit one out? (Devyn)”
    Sherrilyn Kenyon, Born of Ice
