Deeanne Gist
“He wants a fifteen thousand pound settlement."
"Fifteen thousand!"
"He says you're a great deal of trouble."
She hesitated for one startled moment before choking back a laugh.
"I am."
"I thought so." He leveled Drew a look. "If I pay you the fifteen thousand, do you swear to keep her?"
Drew reared back his head. "Forever?"
Her father scowled. "Forever."
"Oh, I suppose." He gave a long-suffering sigh. "If I must."
She bit the insides of her cheeks to keep from laughing outright.”
Deeanne Gist, A Bride Most Begrudging

Philippa Gregory
“He had taken George, my beloved George, from me. And he had taken my other self: Anne.”
Philippa Gregory, The Other Boleyn Girl
