"Every man?"
"Yes," he answered emphatically.

Wendy | 7 comments "Noah, if we were to get married, you couldn't date anymore."
— Julie Garwood (Shadow Dance)


message 13: by [deleted user] (new)

Noah is my absolute favorite male lead that she has written. I have had to replace Shadow Dance twice in paperback. Theo follows a close second and then Nick. That line from Sidney has to best one in the whole book.........sigh........

message 23: by Kayla (new)

Kayla (detailoring1) | 2 comments I LOVE Ransom, it's my absolute favorite. I'm going through another spurt of reading just her books, of which I own several. At the moment, I'm reading Ransom, and one of my favorite quotes was from that book:

"You told me that arrogance wasn't my greatest flaw. You had another imperfection in mind?"
...
"You have many flaws, he announced.... "But there was one flaw that made all the other imperfections pale in comparison."

"Was?" she asked. "I don't have this flaw any longer?"

"No, you don't."

"Pray tell," she muttered in exasperation, "what was this terrible flaw?"

He grinned. "You used to be English."

Ransom is one of my all time favorites! I absolutely love that book and have read it probably close to ten times.


message 25: by Lisa Kay, Lyon's Lady (last edited Apr 17, 2011 11:41AM) (new)

Lisa Kay (lisakayalicemaria) | 1033 comments Mod
I love the "warmed his feet" quote too; probably my favorite and most memorable. But, I also love this scene from The Lions Lady by Julie Garwood :
Lyon dismounted, slapped his horse on the hindquarters as a signal to take to the stables, then called out to Christina's former butler. "Elbert? What are you doing with my shoes?"

"The madam's orders, my lord," Elbert answered. "Didn't know a man could own so many boots," he added. "Been at this task near an hour now. Up the stairs and down the stairs, then up--"

"Elbert? Give me the reason why," Lyon interrupted, his voice irritated. "And what are you doing at Lyonwood? Did Christina invite you to visit?"

"Hired me, sir," Elbert announced. "I'm to be Brown's assistant. Did you know how worried she was about me? She knew I wouldn't last with the old bat. Your misses has a good heart. I'll do my part, my lord. I won't be a shirking me responsibilities to you."

Christina did have a good heart. His gentle wife knew Elbert wouldn't be able to find work with anyone else. He was simply too old, too feeble. "I'm sure you'll do fine, Elbert," Lyon said. "Glad to have you on staff."

"Thank you, my lord," Elbert returned.

Lyon notice Brown standing in the open doorway then. His butler looked upset. "Good afternoon, my lord," Brown called out. "It is so very good to have you back," he added. His voice sounded strained to Lyon, relieved as well. "Did you see your shoes, sir?"

"I'm not blind, man. Of course I saw them. Would you care to explain what in thunderation is going on?"

"Your wife's order," Brown announced.

"Past wife," Elbert interjected with a cackle.

Lyon took a deep breath. "What are you talking about?" He addressed his question to Brown, believing his young butler would make more sense than the old man snickering with laughter behind him.

"You're being divorced, my lord."

"I'm what?"

Brown's shoulders sagged. He knew his lord wasn't going to take the news well. "Divorced."

"Cast out, my lord, pushed aside, forgotten, dead in her heart--"

"I get you meaning Elbert," Lyon muttered in exasperation. "I'm aware of what the word divorce means."

Lyon continued into the house. The old servant shuffled after him. "Those were her very words. My mistress is divorcing you the way her people do. She said it was quite all right to get rid of a husband. You have to find someplace else to live."

"I what?" Lyon asked, certain he hadn't heard correctly.

Brown's insistent nod indicated he had.

"You're cast out, pushed aside--"

"For God's sake, Elbert, cease your litany," Lyon demanded. He turned back to Brown. "What is the significance of the shoes?"

"They signify your departure, my lord," Brown said.

The butler tried not to stare at the incredulous look on his master's face. He was in jeopardy of losing his control. He stared at the floor instead.

"Let me get this straight in my mind," Lyon muttered. "My wife believes the house belongs to her?"

"And your mother, of course," Brown blurted out. "She's keeping her."

Brown was biting his lower lip. Lyon thought he might be trying not to laugh.

"Of course," Lyon drawled.

Elbert tried to be helpful once again. "It's the way her people do," he interjected, his voice gratingly cheerful.

"Where is my wife?" Lyon asked, ignoring Elbert's comments.

He didn't wait for his servants to answer him but took the stairs two at a time to reach the bedrooms. A sudden thought made him pause. "Did she cut her hair?" he called out.

"She did," Elbert shouted before Brown could open his mouth. "It's the way of it," Elbert insisted. Once the hair's cut--well, then you're as good as dead to her. You're set aside, cast--"

"I've gotten her message," Lyon shouted. "Brown, bring my shoes inside. Elbert, so sit somewhere."

I love the scene at the ball with the thieves, too. She couldn't "faint" because the couch was taken.

LOL! I forgot about that. Now I'm LOL loudly! HA!


message 30: by Violeta (new)

Violeta  (cookielicious) | 24 comments God Im on the floor right now...I forgot how funny that book was in some parts. And not to forget the later confruntation with Christina:
"Did you cut your hair again?"
"I did. It is all part of the ritual of mourning," Christina announced.
"Christina, if you cut your hair every time you're unhappy with me, you'll be bald in a month's time. I
promise you."

message 35: by Ada (new)

Ada | 2 comments This is one of my favorite quotes from "The Gift". It's when Nathan was introducing Colin to Sara.

"Wife meet Colin. Colin meet my wife. Now let go of her, Colin, before I smash your face in."

message 37: by Ada (last edited Jun 06, 2011 06:43PM) (new)

Ada | 2 comments also from "The Gift"

"My name's Nathan, Sara."

"And?"

She asked, wondering why he'd suddenly decided to tell her his name.

She was slow to catch on. His sigh was long and weary.

"And you, Lady St. James, owe me a wedding night."


message 38: by Lady Darcie (new)

Lady Darcie Guenon (romanceprincess) | 3 comments Lol
Out of those three books (Guardian Angel, The Gift, and Castles) The Gift was my favorite. Sara and Nathan are so funny togther.
also from "The Gift"
Nathan took a deep breath. "Let's ride, Colin. I've seen enough."
Not a hint of emotion was in his voice. Colin turned to look at him. "Well?"
"Well, what?"
"Damn it, Nathan, tell me what you think."
"About what?"
"Lady Sara," Colin persisted. "What do you think of her?"
"The truth, Colin?"
His friend gave a quick nod.
Nathan's smile was slow, easy. "She'll fit through the window."

A couple more quotes from The Gift (Crown's Spies, #3) by Julie Garwood ...

“Do you own a pistol?”
“Yes.”
“May I borrow it?”
He forced himself not to laugh. “Now why would you want to borrow my pistol, Sara?”
“I want to shoot you, Nathan.”
******************************************************

"… Is this thing you’re determined to do going to take minutes or hours?’
…”How the hell would I know how long it’s going to take?” he muttered.
“Do you mean you’ve never done it before?”
Nathan closed his eyes. The conversation had gotten out of hand.
“Well, have you?”
“Yes.” He sounded disgusted. “I’ve just never timed it before,” he snapped.

quotes from Saving Grace...

“Well?” she demanded when he stubbornly remained silent.
He let out a sigh. “Well, what?”
“You’re supposed to tell me I’m a good wife,” she cried out, her frustration evident.
“All right,” he soothed. “You’re a good wife.”
She shook her head. “No, I’m not,” she admitted.
******************************************************

“There’s more than one way into a castle.”

“Are you cold, lass?”
Alex whispered that question close to her ear. The concern in his voice was most apparent.
“No,” she answered.
“Then why are you trembling?”
“Because I’m cold.”
From The Secret

message 48: by Maggie (new)

Maggie Spry | 15 comments "Sit down Jade." His voice was much softer now, far more threatening, too. It took all Jade's determination not to do as he ordered.
"You probably kick puppies when you're in a foul mood, don't you?"
"Sit down."
She glanced over at the doorway, judging the distance, Caine's next words changed her mind.
"You wouldn't make it."
