«Felicity," Mrs. Featherington interurupted, "why don't you tell Mr. Brdgerton about your watercolors?"»

Julia Quinn


«If you do not apologize to Lady Honoria,” Marcus said, his voice so mild as to be terrifying, “I will kill you.”»

Julia Quinn


«You always get more respect when you don't have a happy ending.»

Julia Quinn


«And if you say that's because you lot barged into her home like a herd of mentally deficient sheep, I'm disowning all three of you.»

Julia Quinn


«Miss Butterworth and the Mad Baron,” Sebastian said approvingly. “Excellent choice.”»

Julia Quinn


«And, she was able to tell herself with some satisfaction, the man in question - one Colin Bridgerton - felt precisely the same way....»

Julia Quinn


«Watch over Honoria, will you? See she doesn't marry an idiot. (Daniel Smythe-Smith)»

Julia Quinn


«James - "Are you paying attention or just trying to make me look like an idoit?"»

Julia Quinn


«If he was planning to attack and ravish, he gave no indication of being in a hurry to do so.»

Julia Quinn


«I don't know whether to toss you through that window or shake your hand and say 'Well done'" Henry said in a tired voice.»

Julia Quinn


«How do you feel?” she asked, trying to fluff his pillow. “Other than terrible, I mean.”»

Julia Quinn


«My mother is convinced that yellow is a happy color and that a happy girl would get a husband.»

Julia Quinn


«This has to be the most self-centered thing I've ever said, but no, I think you just wanted to vex me.»

Julia Quinn


«Anthony looked down at his evil clutches -- hands, he reminded himself, hands -- and grinned anew.»

Julia Quinn


«No one said we had to spend every waking moment together," he said, "but at the end of the day"-he leaned and kissed each of her eyebrows, in turn-"an most of the time during, there is no one I would rather see, no one whose voice I would rather hear, and no one whose mind I would rather explore.»

Julia Quinn


«She’d ceased spying upon him, that was true, but the damage was done. Every time he sat at his desk, he could feel her eyes upon him, even though he knew very well she’d shut her curtains tight. But clearly, reality had very little to do with the matter, because all he had to do, it seemed, was glance at her window, and he lost an entire hour’s work.»

Julia Quinn


«You don't have to kiss a lot of frogs to recognize a prince when you find one."»

Julia Quinn


«She'd met Colin on a Monday.»

Julia Quinn


«And if that weren't bad enough, the next sound he heard was a loud click.»

Julia Quinn


«It's only through sheer force and luck that she's yet to take over the world.»

Julia Quinn


«It suddenly made sense. Only twice in his life had he felt this inexplicable, almost mystical attraction to a woman. He’d thought it remarkable, to have found two, when in his heart he’d always believed there was only one perfect woman out there for him.»

Julia Quinn


«He’d mesmerized her, held her soul captive. And she couldn’t move.»

Julia Quinn


«I can't imagine a romance novel published today where the hero rapes the heroine and she falls in love with him.»

Julia Quinn


«Love's about finding the one person who makes your heart complete. Who makes you a better person than you ever dreamed you could be. Its about looking in the eyes of your wife and knowing all the way to your bones that she's simply the best person you've ever known.»

Julia Quinn


«the unexpected moment [is] always sweeter.»

Julia Quinn


«Suddenly it was too hard to be in his presence, too painful to know that he would belong to someone else.»

Julia Quinn


«Don’t tell me your name. It’s likely to awaken my conscience, and that’s the last thing we want.»

Julia Quinn


«He murmured her name, tenderly taking her face in his hands. “I love you,” he said, his voice low and fervent. “I love you with everything I am, everything I’ve been, and everything I hope to be.”»

Julia Quinn


«Tiene miedo. Es mucho mas fácil cerrarse a las personas que amarlas. Si uno se rodea el corazón con un sólido muro, nadie puede acercarse lo bastante para romperlo. ¿No le parece?»

Julia Quinn


«Blake took a small roll from the tray on the table, then put it back in favor of a larger one. And maybe a little butter. It certainly couldn't hurt. And jam...no, he drew the line at jam. She was a spy, after all.»
