"With the world securely in order, Dain was able to devote the leisurely bath time to editing his mental dictionary. He removed his wife from the general category labeled "Females" and gave her a section of her own. He made a note that she didn't find him revolting, and proposed several explanations: (a) bad eyesight and faulty hearing, (b)a defect in a portion of her otherwise sound intellect, (c) an inherited Trent eccentricity, or (d) an act of God. Since the Almighty had not done him a single act of kindness in at least twenty-five years, Dain thought it was about bloody time, but he thanked his Heavenly Father all the same, and promised to be as good as he was capable of being." ~ Loretta Chase

It is too bad I don't have any medical treatises about. I'm sure I need read a paragraph or two, and you will become ravenous with lust and begin tearing my clothes off. (Dorian from "The Mad Earl's Bride")" ~ Loretta Chase
"Since you made it clear you didn't want to hear anything about [your son], I was obliged to act behind your back.''I understand. You had no choice.''And I should not distress you now, if I were not obliged to do something that you might never forgive.'He swallowed nausea and pride in one gulp. 'Jess, the only unforgivable thing you can do is leave me,' he said. 'Se mi lasci mi uccido. If you leave me, I'll kill myself.''Don't be ridiculous,' she said. 'I should never leave you. Really, Dain, I cannot think where you get such addled ideas.'Then, as though this explained and settled everything, she promptly returned to the main subject, and told him what had happened that day" ~ Loretta Chase

With a woman who makes up her own rules as she goes along?''I expect you to take no for an answer!'He rose. 'I should like to know what you're afraid of.''Afraid?' Her voice climbed. 'Afraid? Of you?''The only reason I can think of for your rejecting an opportunity to run the world as you see fit is fear that you can't manage the man offering the opportunity." ~ Loretta Chase
"And so, as the stars came out, Miles took up his basket and made his way in the moonlight to the river, to the place where he'd hidden the little boat.It was gone.No great surprise, really.

Tomorrow.Tonight, though, he wanted a proper dinner.He set about fashioning a fishing line." ~ Loretta Chase
"No its you," she said. How far away her voice sounded, as though it had traveled to London already, ahead of her. "Your ducal self assurance. Everything will give way to you. Even Satan's own storm.""You are definitely improving," he said. "Full mocking sentences." ~ Loretta Chase
"Oh, good," he muttered. "We're going to discuss it now.""No discussion," she said. Her mind was quite clear now, as though a fire had blazed through it, burning away all confusion.

"It was then Jessica realized he wasn't using his left hand at all, and that he held the arm oddly, as though something were wrong with it. There shouldn't be except for a minor bullet wound. She'd aimed carefully, and she was an excellent markswoman. Not to mention he was a very large target.He looked her way then, and caught her staring. "Admiring your handiwork, are you? I daresay you'd like a better look. Regrettably, there's nothing to see. There's nothing wrong with it, according to the quacks. Except that it doesn't work. Still, I count myself fortunate, Miss Trent, that you didn't aim a ways lower. I'm merely disarmed, not dismanned. But I have no doubt that Herriard here will see to the emasculation." ~ Loretta Chase

"I am already besotted with a needle-tongued, conceited, provoking ape leader of a lady."Her head jerked up. "Besotted? You're nothing like it. Vengeful is more like it. Spiteful." ~ Loretta Chase
"While you were leaping headlong into an ambush you should have foreseen, she might have been attacked. She might have been killed or worse.'Rupert came to a halt. 'What could be worse than her being killed, do you think?''I thought I had communicated to you Mr. Salt's opinions and wishes in the matter of Mr. Archdale's disappearance,' Beechey said. 'I thought I used easily comprehended terms.''You did,' Rupert said. 'I told Mrs. Pembroke about it in much the same way.''You told -' After a pause, Beechey went on, his voice strained, 'You cannot have revealed our suspicions about the - ahem - places of dubious repute. This is one of your jokes, I daresay. Ha ha.''She said her brother was not in a brothel or opium den and I was on no account to go to such places looking for him,' Rupert said. 'I obeyed, as I was obliged to do. You did tell me I wasn't to upset her, did you not?'There followed the kind of furious silence with which Rupert was more than familiar." ~ Loretta Chase

She attacked because she thought she was in danger.''Oh, you had time to discern that it was a female?' she said, her voice higher than usual.'Might have been,' he said. 'She was pretty enough. Did you note the markings?" ~ Loretta Chase
"Good God!" she cried. She rolled off him, tugging down her clothing. "Are you mad?"He blinked and dragged in air. "Well, yes," He said thickly. "Lust does that to a man.""You thought we would--you would-- do...that in public?""I wasn't thinking about where we were." He said.Her eyes widened."I'm a man," he said with what he was sure must be, in the circumstances, saintly patience. "I can do one or the other. Lovemaking or thinking. But not both at the same time."She stared at him for a moment. Then she drew up her knees and folded her arms upon them and buried her face in her folded arms.She did not pick up the rifle and knock him on the head with it.Perhaps all was not lost."Somewhere else then?" He said hopefully." ~ Loretta Chase
"But I liked you from the moment I first heard your voice," he said, "when I had no idea what you looked like. I thought it delicious, the way you bargained for me, as though I were an old rug. Then I loved the way you looked at me. Then I loved the way you ordered me about. I loved your patient and impatient ways of explaining things to me. I love the sound of your voice and the way you move. I love your courage and your kindness and your generosity and your obstinacy and your passion." He paused. "You're the genius. What do you think that means?" ~ Loretta Chase
