Who Said It Answered

So who said the following?

“A few minutes ago you couldn’t wait to leave and now you want to stay?”
“That was before I killed a man,” she offered, coming up with the only excuse she could other than the truth.
“You didn’t kill anyone. You only winged him.”
“Are you sure?”
“Yes.”
She glanced back up the stairs, where even now a tide of servants was rushing to the aid of their master. “I think his injury will be grave, for I’ve never missed before.”

That just happens to be Olivia SuttonOnce Tempted and Robert Danvers in Once Tempted.… Read more »

Who Said It: Challenge Accepted

You all know my books too well, so I’m digging in and hoping this one is a stumper. So Who Said It?

“A few minutes ago you couldn’t wait to leave and now you want to stay?”
“That was before I killed a man,” she offered, coming up with the only excuse she could other than the truth.
“You didn’t kill anyone. You only winged him.”
“Are you sure?”
“Yes.”

Who Said It Revealed

Did you guess that it was Lady Hermione Marlowe and her mother, Lady Walbrook, talking in this exchange?

“…and now that he is inclined to marry—“
“I don’t think the earl has any intention of—“
“Of course he intends to marry. He made his bow at Almack’s.”
Which of course every matron in London knew was code for: I wish to marry your daughter immediately.

If you did–good for you! If not, I tried my hardest to make it a bit of a stumper. Tempted by the Night

You can read the excerpt from TEMPTED BY THE NIGHT or order your own copy for … Read more »

Who Said It? Ups the Game

You all have had it way too easy. Time to up the
Who Said It? game.

“…and now that he is inclined to marry—“
“I don’t think the earl has any intention of—”
“Of course he intends to marry. He made his bow at Almack’s.”
Which of course every matron in London knew was code for: I wish to marry your daughter immediately.

Did You Guess Who Said It?

So who said the following:

“You lied,” she said, going toe-to-toe with the man before her. “You told me he still loved me, wanted me.” She glanced over her shoulder and shuddered at the sight of him. “What he wants is a good bath and his ration of rum tossed overboard.”

This one, at least to me, was pretty easy and obvious. It has to be Lady Philippa, Memoirs of a Scandalous Red Dressor as I always call her, Pippin, talking about her beloved Dash, after finding him all those years later. I absolutely adore this book, Memoirs of a Scandalous Red Dress, because … Read more »

Answer to Yesterday’s “Who Said It?”

So who said the following:

“Have you any idea of the danger you could find here? Of the nature of men?”
She plucked herself free. “I’m well aware of the nature of men. I wouldn’t be here if I wasn’t.”

As much as it sounds like Roselie Stratton from Six Impossible Things, and most definitely like my favorite headstrong runaway daughter of a duke, Lady Arabella Tremont from Mad About the Major, this bit comes from a exchange between that gentleman pirate, Captain Colin Danvers, and the mysterious woman he meets and takes home from the Cyprian Ball, … Read more »

So, Who Said It?

Continuing my #ThrowbackThursday challenge, I’ve pulled another line or two out of one of my books, and now I’m asking you:
Who Said It?

“I disagree,” she said, drawing shocked looks from nearly everyone at the table. “My father was afraid of the company one finds in those schools. It was his belief that the polish that you think so highly of, Miss Cottwell, gives a young lady a false sense of pride and superiority that men find off putting. Would you say that was your experience?”

Is it:
1) Maureen Hawthorne from Brazen Temptress
2) Tally Langley from Confessions Read more »

And the Answer Is . . .

So who said the following:

“What will the neighbors think if you toss me out into the streets in the middle of the night?” She shook at his grasp. “I won’t go quietly.”

Something About Emmaline
Well, it had to be that illustrious con artist disguised as the baron’s fictional wife, Emmaline from Something About Emmaline. One of my favorites. You can read the excerpt here, or order your own copy for a fun #Fridayreads.… Read more »

“What will the neighbors think if you toss me out into the streets in the middle of the night?” She shook at his grasp. “I won’t go quietly.”

3) Emmaline from Something about Emmaline

The Tale of 3 Covers

Or maybe I should make that “Two Wrongs Make a Third Cover.” Or “What happens when you write the stories of identical twins and the trials of making sure both covers have the same model.”

Or rather, “How SIX IMPOSSIBLE THINGS got its cover because a certain someone (not pointing fingers here) decided she no longer wanted to be a romance cover model and made a mess of everything.”

Okay, let’s start with the problem–down below is the stepback for the first book, THE VISCOUNT WHO LIVED DOWN THE LANE, featuring Louisa Tempest, of the infamous Tempest twins. I … Read more »
