The Secrets of Sir Richard Kentworthy by Julia Quinn
Her hands were shaking. He hated that her hands were shaking.
Homefront by Jessica Scott
It was easy to look at him sitting across from her at her kitchen table and embrace the fantasy man in uniform that so many pined for. But the reality of loving a man in uniform was so much harder. It was long nights without phone calls; it was missed births and birthdays.
It was acceptance of being alone and sharing this man with the army. And the army was a demanding mistress.
Dearest Rogue by Elizabeth Hoyt
Only when she sighed into his mouth, a small submission, did he whisper against her lips, "I'm tired of you tempting me."
"I'm not tempting you anymore," she murmured back, her wet lips brushing his.
He nipped her bottom lip in punishment. "Aren't you?"
"No," she whispered. "You've given in."
Give It All by Cara McKenna
She smiled sweetly. “I bet you jack off with your pinkie stuck up in the air, don’t you?”
His smirking lips twitched, faint and quick as a flea sneezing. “Picture it however you like.”
Prisoner by Annika Martin and Skye Warren
My pulse kicks up. How would it feel to push her? To undo her? To break her fucking glasses? Because I got the sense she might like her glasses broken.
Hard to be Good by Laura Kaye
"I would’ve endured anything if it led me to you. I thank God that I’m alive, not because it freed me from those horrible men, but because it led me here. Right here.”
“Fuck, Charlie,”Jeremy said, his eyes going glassy. “And I would’ve given anything for you not to have endured it at all.”
“I wouldn’t change a thing that happened,”Charlie said. “Because you are everything to me, and you were worth it all.”
Finding Gabriel by Rachel Demeter
Indeed, the greatest pieces of artwork told stories, offered beauty, and whispered painful truths.
Acts of Creation by Elisabeth Staab
“I find myself wanting to wait with you for every bus you ever ride, just to be sure you’re safe.”
Asa by Jay Crownover
I wanted to choke him and fuck him, not sure which desire was stronger.
Wicked Wild Fantasies by Shiloh Walker
It's weird, the way a woman can go her whole life without ever really seeing herself.
The Legend of Lyon Redmond by Julie Anne Long
"Why did you do it?' she whispered. He was silent a moment, thoughtful. And then his mouth quirked at the corner.
"Because you couldn't." He said it gently. But deliberately. Ruefully. Laying those words out as if delivering a truth. Just the way he'd done the night he'd left: What if loving you is what I do best? It was indeed what he did best. He had gone and proved it. Her breath snagged in her throat.
Consumed By Fire by Anne Stuart
“Sorry,” she said, and then gave a little laugh, annoyed with herself. “It’s a bad habit of mine.”
“Sorry, sorry, sorry,” he mimicked lightly. “Come to bed with me.”
For a moment she thought she’d misheard him. “I beg your pardon?”
“I said come to bed with me,” he said, still that lazy voice that signaled no strong interest at all. “I could teach you not to be sorry about anything.”
That Man of Mine by Maria Geraci
But from the moment she laid eyes on Zeke Grant, standing by the bowling alley, a beer in one hand, his dark eyes raking her from top to bottom, she’d known what women had known for generations before her.
There was something about a bad boy that made a good girl go stupid.
The Dark Affair by Maire Claremont
She gently placed her hand on his forearm. “All those nothings? They destroy you. If you don’t ever say what upsets you, you will drown.”
It was on the tip of his tongue to tell her that that was utter shite, that every good Englishman knew you kept your mouth shut. But so many good Englishmen were indeed drowning.
First Touch by Laurelin Paige
"The problem with men who are actually a threat, though, Emily, is that you don't ever find out how unsafe they are until it's too late."
It seems like I usually gravitate to the more sad emotional quotes for this category but the rawness of this quote has made it one that has stuck with me. It's heartfelt in its own way, hahaha, and when the hero thinks it about the heroine, it sent a zing throughout my mind and body.
(or maybe 2015 was just a pervy year for me, it seems have more dirtier quotes than usual)
Read a line this year that has stuck with you?
Next time, Best Heroine and Best Hero....
